thanks for posting the link i thought the intro was shocking, but he rest of the song is pretty decent
no problem, I've uploaded it myself, you can check on my channel my videos for Zooropa and Acrobat
ROFL, The Killers made such lolcrap of this song. The drums are probably the worst ever, the guitar does not have the recognizable riff, the vocals are bad... he turned this song into some kind of light bright POP music, devoiding it from all of its essential dark mix of despair and hope. Not to mention he never uses some of the improvements of the song that U2 used when played live (like stronger opera-like "Liiiiiight my way" etc). Very bad job, Killers.
Gosh, I thought after a rather decent cover of "Romeo and Juliet" Killers would do better.
Wow, this is a TERRIBLE album of covers
I'm especially disappointed with the Killers after their renditions of Romeo & Juliet and Shadowplay you'd expect better than this.
Nine Inch Nails - Zoo Station
Decent cover, perhaps a little long. Easy to lose interest halfway through.
U2 (Jacques Lu Cont Mix) - Even Better Than The Real Thing
Remixes are very carry the taste of Marmite. I'm a fan of this one.
Damien Rice - One
Damien Rice is a good artist, I'm just not feeling this cover. Seems to lack what made the original a classic.
Patti Smith - Until The End Of The World
Quite a good cover I suppose, kind of follows Nine Inch Nails down the road of slow...
Garbage - Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
Certainly one of the best covers on the album in my opinion. Although it's not a carbon copy of U2, Garbage made it their own whilst incorporating the best of U2.
Depeche Mode - So Cruel
See "Zoo Station".
Snow Patrol - Mysterious Ways
Really not feeling this one at all. One of the worst covers on here.
The Fray - Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World
A rather pleasant surprise this one.
Gavin Friday - The Fly
The Killers - Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
The worst cover on the album.
Glasvegas - Acrobat
Argh. Musically it's good, I just detest the vocals.
Jack White - Love Is Blindness
I've warmed to this one, but not my favourite.
I´m not sure if all I´ve listened to likes me. I have to listen to the covers more times. But generaly, apart of some of them, I like a lot.
We must have in mind that they are covers that are not original songs by U2, so we can not expect that sound the same. They only sound different.
does anyone know if i must compromise to buy in u2.com to check the shipping rate? the ebay magazine is 23 dollars, and u2.com is 8... im in brazil, if u could check the shipping price id be glad!
The NIN cover of Zoo Station is EPIC. It's not too long, at least not for me.
On the other hand, the So Cruel version by DM is boring.
Haven't really listened to the other songs yet, since I have to much work to do today.
