U2’s second decade often seemed as preoccupied with the band’s burgeoning superstardom–and how to confront/confound it–as it did with creating music. The band managed only four albums during the era (only half of its ’80s output), projects whose gestations seemed perennially plagued by turmoil as much as mercurial creative instincts. But as this anthology chronicles, U2 ultimately managed a considerable feat: producing a memorable, lasting body of work in a decade where one of pop music’s chief attributes was its disposability. The disc mixes hits like “Mysterious Ways” and “One” with seductive soundtrack cuts (the title track to Wim Wenders’s Until the End of the World, Batman Forever’s “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me”), new mixes of “Discotheque,” “Staring at the Sun,” and “Numb,” and a pair of strong new tracks, the Orbit mix of “Electrical Storm” and “The Hands that Built America,” the title track from Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York.
