Greatest Irish Bands [Bonus DVD]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
This wide-ranging collection of classic Celtic pop covers the roots, the rockers, the rebels, and more. From Clannad to U2, Thin Lizzy to Stiff Little Fingers, Greatest Irish Bands lives up to the title. Included in the special CD/DVD package is Sightings of Bono, a seven-minute film shot in Dublin in 2000 about a girl who sees Bono everywhere, finally meeting U2's famous frontman in the shop where she works. The short was seen in a few theaters and on the Internet but has never been released commercially.

All Music Guide - Hal Horowitz
Released in 2004 to coincide with St. Patrick's Day, Greatest Irish Bands accounts for most of the usual suspects, though often with their highest-profile songs (most of which disregard their Irish roots). The Pogues' "Fairytale of New York" and Thin Lizzy's "Whiskey in the Jar" do show a connection to these bands' distinctive homeland music, though the already over-anthologized "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison is a song that reveals nothing of Morrison's Belfast influences. It is encouraging to see relatively obscure '80s punkers the Undertones and Stiff Little Fingers receive exposure, but an enclosed free DVD wastes some of its potential by including only a short but sweet indie film, Sightings of Bono.

    A good mix

    I really enjoyed this cd because it has tracks from Thin Lizzy, The Pogues and Stiff Little Fingers. It’s pretty cool that they included old school irish punk music tracks. I’m not too much of a U2 fan but the song “Where the Streets have no name” was a beautiful song. I’m thinking I will start listening to U2 more often. The mix of songs is a little random, obviously Sinead and U2 are not in the same genre of music, but overall i think that just adds to the cd, it makes it that more interesting
