CD Reviews

Not even great for a single
Erik J. Malvick | Davis, CA | 03/14/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I find it a little bothersome that people are recommending "All That YOu Can't Leave Behind" instead of this only because that is an album this is a single.That being said, U2 singles pre-PoP were known to be just as good as the albums with B-Sides that were truly gems. However, Pop changed all that and it hasn't really progressed since then. U2's singles have become an adventure in remixes. As others have said, unless you are really looking for dance music, then this is not a single for you.If you are looking for dance music, this still may not be the single for you. While I do not like U2's dance music phase in the remixes, I appreciate some of them for the songs themselves. On this CD, the only really greatness is in the Pop Music song, which is a nice little number even if you aren't dancing. Happiness is a Warm Gun is a disappointment. Not really a dance mix, and not too much feeling involved. This song would of been great ala Bullet the Blue Sky with a bit more rock band oomph. Numb, is a great dance song without a remix, and this remix has to be one of the worst out all that exist. Last of all, the title song, is not really that great, I would say in the lower half if rating all the songs on Pop.If you want some U2 music to dance to, get one of the remix CD's with Discotheque or go for the Elevation single. Perhaps the best item to get would be the U2, Best of, 1990-2000 which includes a B-Sides disc with the best of the remixes."
Ugh

"Unless you're really (and I mean REALLY) into dance music (hard core, not Jennifer Lopez), then you'd probably do well to forgo this recording. Parts of it ("Pop Muzik" and this version of "Numb") are absolutely torturous. There is an interesting, if uninspired cover of "Happiness is a Warm Gun". "Last Night on Earth" is just boring. I give it two stars because I guess it's okay as far as dance music goes, and U2 gets points for trying something new (not many points, but points nonetheless). However, I would suggest spending your on another U2 cd, such as "All That You Can't Leave Behind", "Achtung Baby" or "October.""
Pretty good

"All of the tracks on this disc are really good. "Pop Muzik" and "Numb" are probably the best tracks on the cd, and" Happiness is a warm gun" is pretty good too. If it was just those, I'd give it 5 stars. "Last Night On Earth" is only ok. They should have named it something else because there is nothing from the original "Last Night On Earth" at all. It doesn't have any lyrics whatsoever! Just a lot of music. The only thing that I can see that the song is good for is dancing. The music on the track is still ok. Like I said, the other songs are great, "Last Night On Earth" kind of ruins it. I still think it's worth buying however, if they dropped the price just a little bit."
