"Pride - The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra PLays U2"

Does anyone else absolutely adore this album? I got it quite a while ago and it still blows me away every time I listen to it. It's great to hear the songs played in a whole different way. If you don't have this album, run out and buy it now! It's a must! You will not regret it!!! Their versions of "Pride" and ISHFWILF are wonderful!

I disagree. Not one of my favourite musical forays.

I agree. I can stand that one.

Strung out on U2 is much better.

I love the RPO one and the Strung out on U2 one...they are very nice (and also make great backround music for presentations at school).

I have to agree, the CD is a stinker, but that is the best track.

I like it. I don't LOVE it, but it's decent. Pride and WGRYWH are the best by far....

I'll have to check out that Strung out on U2 sometime soon......... ( after I finish listening to all the bootlegs!)

Another great one is the Bluesgrass Tribute to U2. Kinda Joshua Tree-heavy, as you might expect, but interesting.

The Strung Out version of WOWY is one of my favorite covers ever.

RPO didn't appeal to me, other than WGRYWH. The arranger didn't put a lick of originality in his pieces. If you want symphonic rock, I suggest the London Philharmonic's Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd albums, or the London Symphony's version of Tommy from the early 70s. INCREDIBLE!
