That won't help Bono's rep.

But I really dig the new developments on the Best Of release.

This is getting interesting, but the descriptions are so confusing.

I'm assuming since Universal's ultimate intent is to score lots of money from casual fans there'll definitely be a release with just the CD, and then all the other stuff.

1. stop your whining. all i heard on hear for weeks was "the bonus disk should be a live cd" IT IS.

2. it is pretty clear to me that the phrase "and a DVD is coming too" means "not included in this set" AKA "not a bonus DVD"

so you won't be paying for the disc of videos unless you really want to buy another DVD. it aint included here.

seriously, what is the deal with U2 fans. Everything they do, someone is out there whining. and then they get what they ask for and they whine some more.

you got your live cd.
that should be good enough.

a new unreleased live album with 2 new studio tracks? good enough for me. I don't care if it also happens to come with 16 hits i already own on several cds tapes, vinyl, and the itunes boxset

all of this is a bonus. i wasn't expecting a U2 release this year. i'll take what i can get. i'll consider it a sort of "rattle and hum" lite.

it is awesome in my opinion.

Could be worse, they could both be facing the other way.

This may explain why the deluxe edition of U2 by U2 was scrapped -- too much product out there competing. This is an awful lot of stuff coming at once, and very past-oriented, save for the two new tracks. (I realize Milan isn't strictly "past" but since Bomb is two years on now and the DVD recorded over a year ago, it seems a tad stale.)

I saw it mentioned in another thread, but by the looks of the cover this CD might've been part of the deluxe edition of the book and the band just decided to sell it separately.

according to wikipedia the release date is set for november 20th, which leads we to beleive that there is the possiblility that if there is some kind of launch even it might be held in Melbourne, Australia (my home town ) where they would have played the second vertigo show the previous night.

well it's that time of year isn't it- Depeche Mode have yet another Best of coming out soon, as do Oasis and George Michael.

Can't say I was overly excited about this- they've already done 2 Best Of albums already and can't see any reason to buy it again- except with the bonus of a live cd/dvd..

Why do we need another one though? And sorry, but by tacking on the live stuff and a couple of new songs, its just an attempt to get the fans buying yet another CD with songs they already own.

Or am I the only one that sees this as being a bit cynical?

If they were thinking about the fans, they could release the live stuff on iTunes or something.
