not very good by u2 extrmemely high standards. they mess up staring at the sun and then start again ad its much better so credit to them realising and admitting their mistake. some good rare songs on here.


Recording: Soundboard - 5 stars


Fine, normal


low - bono's voice isnt very good, some songs seem to have been poorly rehersed eg all the ones from pop

highs - do you feel loved (rarity) as well as if god will send his his angles, i downloaded it for thoses few rare songs to be honest. Edge singing Daydream Believer is really really cool, I love it, what a legend
