I'm excited that in just a couple of months I'll be listening to a new U2 compilation with BRAND NEW remixes of some great tunes, not to mention two new songs. And it will be interesting to hear how the material blends together and how it flows. That was a weakness on the best of from the 80's. When Love Comes to Town and I Will Follow don't sound like the same band.

In addition we'll be getting our hands on some relatively rare b-sides and remixes (not that we all don't have them already) AND we'll be getting a DVD with video's, a history mix and some live performances. And people are COMPLAINING?

My thoughts exactly! Even I don't agree on the "pathetic" thing. It's not pathetic, it's normal. This is a U2 board, and the next release is The Best Of, so what are we going to talk about? We all wish to see there the songs we thing they are the "best". The problem is we all have different tastes, so it's pretty difficult to have an album that is going to make happy to all of us!

Back to listen Electrical Storm again

Although I would have liked Lemon Please and Walk On this CD, I love what the band is doing. Not everyone is going to be happy about the choices but the band knows that. I believe that the First Time was a favorite of Bono's and he wanted to have it on the disk. The b-sides are OK too.....the remixes are a large part of their identity during this period. They were influenced by the club scene so I think they wanted to reflect that with the b-sides. Even though some songs aren't in the CD, they are in the DVD as videos so everyone gets some song in some form. GOOD JOB BOYS!
