Before listening to this one, there was a little debate over whether it counted in the album game. I have weird rules that bend and mutate over time, but the fact that this album contains a significant amount of previous songs was an issue. They’re live, so that’s different, and in the end I allowed it because this is clearly an album that they have worked and crafted as a piece of art.
I know that people, and by people I mean avid U2 fans, don’t really like this one. But I quite enjoyed it. It’s a bit of a hodgepodge of stuff, like a scrapbook, and I liked it. Guests popping in and out, live songs from previous events, and then a couple of new ones as well.
Plus, All I Want Is You has been one of my favourite U2 songs for a long, long time.
