Muze PNote By the time 2006's U218 SINGLES was released, U2 had been one of rock's reigning behemoths for a good quarter century. Whittling down the group's hefty discography to 18 tracks seems impossible, but U218 SINGLES solves the problem by focusing, as the title suggests, on singles. Consequently, some crucial tunes, namely early ones like "I Will Follow," "Gloria," and "Two Hearts Beat As One," are missing.
Muze PNote But since one of U2's greatest strengths is their ability to create imaginative and engaging music that can also cross over into the mainstream, the collection brims with great material. Some of the band's best recorded moments--"Pride (In the Name of Love)," "New Year's Day," and "One," for example--are showcased, along with immediately familiar anthems like "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Mysterious Ways," and "Sweetest Thing." A handful of tunes from the 2000s--like "The Saints Are Coming," the band's famed collaboration with Green Day--round out the set. Most of these songs have already become a permanent part of the pop-culture fabric, but that doesn't lessen the appeal of hearing them on this smartly compiled set.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.129)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his CD is U2's catalog stripped down to the stadium-shaking warhorses..."

Q (p.154)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's a sense of personal care and attention here, as if the whole thing comes with U2's personal seal of approval."

Uncut (p.96)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] demonstration that U2 are out on their own now, the last of their kind."

Rolling Stone 8 of 10
If you thought that U2's last two greatest-hits discs had just a few too many minor songs on them, U218 Singles is the collection for you. Made in a land where Boy, October, Pop and Zooropa don't exist, this CD is U2's catalog stripped down to the stadium-shaking warhorses. With no attempt made to put them in chronological or any logical order ("Sunday Bloody Sunday" follows "Sweetest Thing"), the only reason anyone but the most casual U2 fan needs to check this out is the inclusion of two new tracks produced by Rick Rubin. The first, a cover of "The Saints Are Coming," by 1970s Scottish punk band the Skids, is an above-average "Walk On"-style anthem that -- despite the presence of Green Day -- has been thoroughly de-punked. The second, "Window in the Skies," sounds like a "City of Blinding Lights" remake with Bono's trademark vocal acrobatics. The astonishing success of The Beatles 1 proved there's a huge market for single-disc hits collections from monster bands, so Singles should almost certainly do well, even if it does feel a bit perfunctory. - Andy Greene

Bio

U2's Bono was one of the few real rock heroes of the 1980s, leading the Irish band to international recognition with a charged, political approach to music. The band's early efforts brought a stadium-size presence to alt-rock, with Bono's expressive vocals and the Edge's distinct guitar lines interacting seamlessly with the rhythm section of bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. In 1987, U2 broke through to superstardom with THE JOSHUA TREE, a grand culmination of their '80s sound. In the 1990s, however, the band very purposefully deflated that epic image, simultaneously adding ambient, dance, and electronica touches on 1991's ACHTUNG BABY. Mining that vein for much of the decade, U2 kicked off the 21st century with a triumphant return to form that was embraced by new and longtime fans alike.
