Something worth noting: It'll be 1990-2000, instead of 1991-2001, as previously suspected.

That means that they don't HAVE to include songs from ATYCLB; they could wait until releasing an Interscope-backed Best Of 2000-2010.

Generally, I think keeping ATYCLB out of the Best Of 00-10 is a good idea:

* The album doesn't fit with the rest of the decade (AB, Zoo, "HMTMKMKM", Passengers, POP), and was considered the beginning of a new era for U2 (the band saying it felt like a debut release).

* In the U.S., the album was released by Interscope rather than Island.

* You'd almost HAVE to include the four Grammy-winning singles, meaning fewer songs for the other albums.

* AND releasing a Best Of with ATYCLB songs this soon will probably seriously cut into the final sales figures for the album; if McGuinness wants this disc to beat The Joshua Tree, it should keep the "big" songs exclusive to the album.

Otherwise... cool announcement.

A very wise move...I'm curious if ATYCLB material will be included. I'm assuming yes, but only the 4 singles, probably in different or edited versions, save for Beautiful Day. It would also not suprise me if "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" is released as a single since it is relatively unknown to the masses, especially in the US. I think they will just put out the most accessible singles from the 90's on it, because I don't think they can fit them all on there if it is a single disc & B-sides like the 1st Best of. Here's my guess at a track list...

1-Elevation-Tomb Raider Version
2-Even Better...
3-Hold Me Thrill Me...
4-The Ground Beneath Her Feet
5-Staring At The Sun
6-Beautiful Day
7-NEW SONG
8-The Fly
9-Last Night On Earth-Single Version
10-Until The End Of The World
11-Stuck In A Moment-Single Edit
12-Discotheque
13-Mysterious Ways
14-Please-Single Version
15-Walk On
16-One

It's tough...Instead of The Fly & Discotheque, maybe Wild Horses & If God Sends possibly? What do you all think?

Sooo is the new song likely to be a B-side remake like Sweetest Thing?

Or something completely new but more in the style of their 90's stuff?

Should be interesting.

Also, is one of those two "new singles" A man's a man from the Gangs of New York soundtrack?
Or are we talking a possible additional ATYCLB single?

That's good news indeed!!! WOO HOO...

That means that they don't HAVE to include songs from ATYCLB;
Uhm... ATYCLB was released in 2000, so how does that make you think they won't include tunes from that album on a best of? It's not a greatest hits album so they don't have to be singles. Simply what U2 believe are their best from that era, and you can count on it that they'll pick a few tunes from that album.

They will not put tunes from ATYCLB on it because they are still promoting ATYCLB. There is going to be a 3rd volume one day and that will have ATYCLB on it I believe. But certainly not this one. That would not make any sense from a business perspective. I actually will not believe this until I hear it for U2.com. I prefer a new album then to a bunch of songs I already have.

I bet they'll remake a song of theirs from the 1990-2000 period, just like they did with The Sweetest Thing. Whatever it is it'll be something good.
