This disc collects almost two-dozen videos from U2, filmed over the course of the 1990s. Each clip is presented in its original broadcast aspect ratio. English soundtracks are impressively rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Supplemental materials include director commentary tracks for a dozen of the videos from such luminaries as Wim Wenders, Jonas Akerlund, Phil Joanou, and Mark Pellington. Some featurettes about the band round out this fine package that should please both hardcore and casual fans of the band. Videos on the disc include "One," "Beautiful Day," and "Numb."

There is no other band or group that offers the emotional effects like U2. They are on of the most determind bands of the century, and now with The Best Of U2, one is able to enjoy the sounds that caused U2 to get so much attention. Their style is unique, and the sounds of Bono's voice rises the spirits and turns the heart. U2 is the best of the best. A great band.
Sorry to say, but this DVD is not worth your hard-earned money if you have a discerning eye at all. Badly encoded. Quality is like internet streaming. I was very disappointed after Elevation, which is top notch. Further, the sound mix doesn't downmix well to two channels, if you don't have a surround system. The vocal tracks are lost and the background (usually echo) is in the forefront. Couldn't stand it. Avoid.
Despite the changes and mixes of the classics, this does still rock! I am missing the original spin of ''Lemon'' and agree that ''The Fly'' should be included, but them including ''Until the End of the World'' makes up for that. I also appreciate them including the new stuff, I really like both Electric Storm mixes.
