Exactly.

I think its great they are doing this, but they didnt take into account that A LOT of us have 90% of this stuff legally already and just want the stuff we don't have and cant get it because 95% of that stuff is only available when you buy the whole thing.

Im not shelling out $150 for a digital collection that has 4 copies of the same song repeated all over the place.

I still have a $50 off coupon I will give to someone if they hook me up with some of the rare stuff, but keep in mind if you want my $50 OFF you have to have a way to rip your tracks to mp3 to get to me. I do not want to hassel with the AAC authorizing issues. LET ME KNOW, this could save someone planning on spending the money anway $50.

I read a few posts where people have said that they only want a few of the songs from the "Complete". You can get any song from it that you want for 99 cents each. I bought Fast Cars this morning for 99 cents which turned out to be useless cause I then went out and bought the Collectors edition from Best Buy which had Fast Cars on it anyway.

You can buy each song individually. I did it this morning.

You can't buy the songs from the "unreleased and rare" section individually.

Oh ok. I bought Fast Cars by itself this morning and assumed that the rest of the set was also available individually. Sorry for the misinformation.

I just bought the whole catalogue. Damn, it took hours to download...
Anyway, all I got now is a computer which is about the crash because of the gigabytes this thing ate

Some spoilers ahead....

There is a booklet you can download with it...
These are MP4 files.
The unreleased tracks are incredible. There the Xanax And Red Wine which is in fact..... fast cars...
There is this version of SYCMIOYO without the chorus....
There is Native Son on there, which is basically Vertigo.
There is an alternative version of Yahweh. There is an alternative version of ABOY (which to me is better than the album version) Boy boy boy. I have paid 150 euro's for this and now I'm forced to delete a bunch of tracks because otherwise I won't be able to do anything on this computer....


Please make sure you have a supercomputer!!!!!

Yep but doing it this way means that U2/IPOD can screw as much out of the hard core U2 fans as possible. And people still tell me U2 haven't changed the way they do things these days.

when you get your computer calmed down , do you think you can share some of the Unreleased tracks with your fellow U2 fans ? I am sure it will be greatly appreciated by all .........

What really sucks is you're paying for lossy files...that's my main bitch with it. If they released a cd boxed set with rarities & live tracks I'd buy it, even if I had some of the tracks already, because you have a hard copy, and it's cd-quality music. At least Metallica makes their stuff available in FLAC format. Whatever, hopefully somebody shares these...oh and I supposed I'm not supposed to share/trade "Another Time, Another Place" (1981-03-06 Boston) and "Happy New Year" (1989-12-31 Dublin) because now they've been "officially released"? Crap...

OK end rant...look, I love U2, they're my favorite band, and I'm happy they're releasing some of these tracks...I just wish they were more readily accessible to the longtime fan who'd like a cd-quality version of them. And it's nice to see the live shows there for fans who haven't gotten heavily into boot trading...they're great shows.
