Reviews - What do our customers think?
Its very good!  May 16, 2006
Lets face it, most tribute albums stink. The good news is that this one doesnt stink!.. Its not perfect, and im sure that this cd's version of "with or without you" will offend 99% of loyal U2 fans, but the rest of the cd is good, some songs are even great.

There are 3 or 4 songs here that manage to be different from the original in some way, but still good.
One of them is the first track in the album which is "Sunday Bloody sunday" by a band called Pillar... The song has a P.O.D sound to it.. Overall, its pretty darn good, not the best in the album, but very enjoyable.

Another good one is "Beautiful Day" .. This song is very balanced.... manages to sound very different from the original while still doign justice to U2's masterpiece.

The song that definately takes the cake is "40" ... The version this guys managed to put together is absolutely awsome. The album is almost worth buying for this song alone... without a doubt the best track on the entire album.

Other tracks worth mentioning are "Pride (in the name of love)", and "mysterious ways"... The only problem with pride is that they didnt change it much.. It pretty much sounds like the exact same song played by another band... WHICH doesnt make it a bad song obviously, the original is awsome, but compared to the other guys, this song sounds too much like the original....

And about "mysterious ways", when i read that Toby Mac re-made "mysterious ways" i was convinced it would be very interesting... And it is, but some parts of the song fall abit short, specially toby mac's vocals , which arent bad but they do sound flat once in a while.

Another one worth mentioning is "one" by Michael Tait... His voice fits this song perfectly... Sometimes it seems that hes trying too hard to make it different from the original, but its still darn good.

Other than that, there are other decent tracks here like "love is blindness" (the original is an awsome song, but this version falls a bit short), and "gloria". The rest of the songs okay, nothing spectacular...

The only true failure here is "with or without you"... the problem with this song is that it sounds too pop, and completely loses the feeling that the original had... This song almost sounds as if it was re-made by Britney Spears (except this girl in this song can actually sing), which will piss off alot of loyal fans... But if you have a 12 year old girl at home, she'll love it.

In short, its a good cd, and its a good cause. If you can afford it, i say go for it!
It's a great one !  Mar 30, 2006
This CD is masterful work in my opinion, regardless of whether one considers it a "tribute" album or a charity album (I guess I consider it a little bit of both - they're supporting a cause BY paying tribute to U2). Even a tribute album can pay homage to the work of an artist without making mere duplicates of the recordings.

And that is precisely what I like about this CD - that the artists don't try to sound exactly like U2. I'm a huge U2 fan, but I think the best thing for artists to do - even when covering others' songs, is to be themselves. The musicians here bring their own flavor to U2's compositions and it makes it richer and more authentic.

At the same time, they don't (for the most part) show an inclination to rework songs so much that their resemblance to the original becomes negligible enough to effectively kill the spirit of the original.

The two tracks that stray the most are "All I Want Is You" (Jars of Clay) and "With Or Without You" (Grits & Jadyn Maria). These two don't meet the standards of other 11, yet they are still both pretty good -- the latter mostly because Jadyn contributes a beautiful voice and offers up a great vocal performance. The R&B/Hip Hop bits by Grits actually work ok at times, but in the end could stand a bit less frequency. Jars of Clay turns up the blues dial a bit too much on "All I Want Is You" - which adds a ton of levity to what was is originally a very profound, almost haunting sound.

In trying to pick standouts I could easily just list 8 or 9, which would defeat the purpose, so I'll just say that I think Gloria and One are real big standouts.

They did a great job on this CD! And that's coming from a big U2 fan!
kien dijo ke u2 no era cristiano  Feb 16, 2006
excelente disco lo recomiendo totalmente y escuchen la cancion de tait "one" es buenisima
Overall, Good Effort for a Great Cause. Ignore All the Negative Energy.  Feb 16, 2006
Let me start by saying that I am in full agreement with Samuel T. Mitchell when he says that you have to remember that this is NOT meant to be a tribute album! These bands and artists are NOT trying to copy U2, they're not trying to sound like U2, and they're certinaly not trying to usurp U2's sound, name, or glory. (To be honest, I don't think tribute albums really try to do that either, but that's another discussion...) What these bands/artists ARE trying to do is support U2's cause and mission, which is to help fight AIDs in Africa. They are using U2's songs to do this, and all profits go towards that end. So, that being said, whether or not you absolutely love this CD, you can at least have the relief of donating to a worthwhile cause.

Furthermore, yes, we all know U2 is not a Christian band (I question the validity of a so-called "Christian" music genre altogether, but again, another discussion), but I'm sorry, you cannot deny that sometimes Bono IS talking about Jesus! Here's a line straight out of "Sunday, Bloody Sunday," for example, in case you never paid attention: "To claim the victory that Jesus won." Some reviewers have said that the CCM artists present on this CD are untalented basically solely on the basis of their being Christian. That's a REALLY stupid reason for not liking someone's music. Not to mention doing that means you'd have to hate U2 as well. So what if the cover band/artist happens to be of the Christian faith? OMG, THAT HAS TO BE A REASON NOT TO LISTEN TO THIS CD!!! Please.

So, A Music Fan, Bubba Licious, Thew, and Nate P, and others, take your negative energy elsewhere. Get this CD. The money goes towards a fantastic cause supported and started by Bono himself. Plus, as far as cover songs go, these aren't bad. I've definitely heard much worse! (Cf. The Pussycat Dolls' cover of "Tainted Love"...Just NO!)
not too shabby  Aug 6, 2005
yeah i havent actually heard the whole cd yet, but well what ive heard sounds pretty good. there are some very good and talented artists on the cd (PILLAR, sanctus real, audio a, sixpence) so it should be good. i havent actually heard any of the U2 originals though (haha) so i dont know what they are like comparitively. the cover of sunday bloody sunday (pillar) is quite good!!!!! oh yeah and for everyone ratting on christian music, i want to know what your idea of "pushing the envelope" and being more creative is. because if it means cussing and singing about perverted things in every song then yeah a lot of popular bands today are "creative." but seriously, how hard is it to chuck in a four letter word or a sexual reference every other line?? just a thought. . .
