Five StarsGreat!!5A Great Cover StoryMy friend recently bought this cd on Amazon. I am an avid U2 fan and a Christian so this cd seemed like a good fit. I had to read the reviews first. What I found was really intriguing. I could not believe how many "Its really great except the Grits song" references I found. I found that most of the stand-by Christian artists were there: you got your Audio Adrenaline, DC talk, Jars of Clay, Deleriou5? and Sixpence nonethericher. You have some new names: Pillar, Sanctus real, Nichole Nordeman and some others. But most of the negative comments that really bothered me were about Grits. I love Grits. They have been on my favorite list for years. I am not a huge fan of rap, but i like what they bring to the table.That being said, here is my review.Pillar "sunday bloody sunday". YOu know I like what they did with this song. They made it their own, yet didnt freak me out with it. I hated the cover of Bullet the Blue Sky by POD. This cover was hard. It rocked. Yet, it was still the powerful U2 song. The music transcended its medium and still came through with soul. Good one. 4 out of five stars.Sanctus Real- "beautiful day". I had the priveledge of seeing this band live a couple years back before they were really known. Cool guys. Cool cover. Not the same passion as U2, but really did a cool space punk version of the song that made me appreciate it. Again 4 out of five stars.Starfield- "40" It didnt stink. It was ok. On the edge of boring. It almost sounded a lot like the group Sense Field if they covered a U2 song, with about 50% less interest in appealing to their audience. It sounded like a canned Christian music song that really hurts my ears to hear, like what Sonic Flood does to me. 2 out of five stars.Sixpence None the richer- "Love is Blindness". I am in love with Leigh Nash. I like everything she sings. For a better version of the song "40" there was this great cd called "Acoustic Praise" which featured her voice on a few songs and Matt Slocum's guitars. It was a much better cover. This "love is blindness" cover is a great cover. Its a pleasure to listen to. Its beautiful. 5 out of five stars.Audio Adrenaline- "Gloria" Happily not straying too far from the original these Kentucky boys create a happy happy cover of a great song. I would love to see them perform this live with their intense energy. It would definitely be a crowd pleaser. However, not much going in the way of originality. 3 out of five stars.Nichole Nordeman- "Grace" I always like what she does. She has an incredibly sexy voice, recorded and used to its fullest perfection in this song. I know it's weird to say a Christian artist is sexy. Or that her voice evokes erotic moods. But it does. And I love it! Especially when you are trying to cover a U2 song. Bono ain't got a lot goin on in the super-clear vocal purity department, but he makes up for it with passion and sensuality. Good call, good move. 4 out of five stars.Jars of Clay- "All I Want Is You". I have always loved this band. I've seen them in concert like three or four times (seeing them in the small tent before they blew up as i passed by at Cornerstone kinda counts). They have always had this really cool artsy sound that came off as sort of effeminite. I put up with the effeminite part, but was always moved by their thoughtful lyrics and danceable tunes. What i liked about this cover though was it seemed like they reached way down and found some masculinity (balls). Good show. 4 out of five stars.TobyMac- "Mysterious Ways" No mystery here. This cover sounded like the parable of the talents. This song is the servant who buried his talent. Took no risks. It sounds beat for beat like the same exact song as the original. While a good copy it's no great cover. 2 out of five stars.Deleriou5?- "Pride (in the name of love)" Since they came out, I have always figured that this band sought to be the church version of U2. The Christian arena rock band that sang worship songs. I always thought, wow, what U2 wannabe's are these guys? Then I heard this cover. Absolutely terrible. It proved what wannabes they are. It also proved what wannabesbutarent they are. 1 out of five stars. (However, if you like processed worship cd's and contrived christian music of the basest and worst kind, this cover should be right up there with all of your Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant CD's)Tait- "One" Ok. Finally. I was never ever a fan of DC Talk (see comments above about contrived processed christian music). I always have had a secret guilty pleasure when it comes to Michael Tait. He produced Pete Stewart's album. That scored him some points in Brandon's "not so bad a guy" chart. This cover of One had soul. Oddly, for a not-so-white-guy, less soul that Bono. But enough to do a passable cover of this song. 3 out of five stars.Grits with Jadyn Maria- "With or Without You" I bought this CD to hear this song. So many Christian Music fans who also listen to U2 (come on! you know you do because they are good, even if they use the "F" word and drink vodka like water and support the democratic party-its undisputably good music). So many white middle american protestant Christians are not going to react well to this song. I dont know why. Its a great cover. ITs a GREAT cover! The only disappointing part about it is that its missing the rap. For a rap group, the rap part is pretty essential. So what i Got out of this cover was this: a great vocal performance from Jadyn Maria, a great dance tune, and a great tribute to the Edge's guitar chimes. I bet if you asked which cover U2 liked the best on this cd, they would point to this one. 5 out of Five stars. (oh yah, to all the haters of this cover, shake off some of your flaky whiteness and dance a little-you might like it).Todd Agnew- "When Love comes to town" Nice Bluesy cover. I was a little disappointed when he changed the lyrics to sound more "Christian". Bono sings "I used to make love under a red sunset" Todd sings "I used to fall in love under a red sunset". This is what's wrong with Christian music. We can't say we used to make love under a red sunset. In the context of the song "I did what i did before love came to town". How could you fall in love before love came to town? You can make love (still a euphamism for sexual relations) without love. That was the point. "i was makin promises i was soon to forget." No points for the coward cover. But since it was still a good cover besides that point, 3 out of five stars.Chris Tomlin- "Where the Streets Have No Name" This sounded like a Karaoke version of the song. Chris has a good voice. Good range. Vocal Clarity. I just didn't see anything that would distinguish him from Bono in this cover. There was no indentifiable signature to this performance, so it came across as a flat performance. 2 out of five stars.4good songsA good mix cd5Amazing CD!Excellent cd and great cover versions of U2 songs!5Perhaps the Best U2 TributeAll I read is how people dislike one song, dislike another, or another, or how U2's versions were better, etc, etc. Well, it's hard to improve on greatness, especially U2. As another reviewer stated, the best aspect of this is the cause. I only wish more of the cost went to that cause. $0.50 seems pathetic for a disc that costs ~$12...So the music. Well, people can complain, but this is the best U2 tribute I've heard, at least from a more contemporary standpoint (I like the pickin' on U2 CD too). I agree that most of the covers are average. The only one I'm not a fan of is With or Without You by Grits et al, but that is more of a style difference. I like others am also disappointed in Where the Streets Have No Name, but it's hard to improve an already fantastic song. I think this is where some of the less famous songs come out on top. Love is Blindness is an example. U2 did an excellent job on their version, but the one here is Standout. All I Want is You is great because it changes the tempo and style nicely. That is one case where and exceptional song was kept exceptional. I could go on and on as most covers here have their own unique merits.The complaints are always regarding the songs being too different or not different enough. They are covers; they do what they are supposed to. I give it 4 stars in the end, and mostly because the one thing lacking for almost each case is emotion. Enjoy4Best U2 Cover Album EverI bought this CD when it came out back in the day and literally couldn't get enough of it. I liked U2's more popular songs, but I have to say some of my favorite versions of their songs are done by these artists. Eventually this CD got so loved I had to throw it away. I'm getting it again! So GOOD!!! Chris Tomlin's cover is just out of this world. Don't pass it up. It's quality.5Best U2 covers EVER!Pillar and Sanctus Real have the best covers I've heard of Sunday Bloody Sunday and Beautiful Day. I love U2 and every song on this album does U2 justice!5Inventive, Satisfying Compilation of Cover SongsWhile I was interested in this album before I bought it, I also in some respects dreaded listening to it. Sure, the contributions to World Vision make the purchase justifiable (even though Sparrow/EMI is only donating 50 cents to World Vision for each album sold), but I feared that the cover versions of songs from my favorite band would be poor in quality. My fears were groundless. Eleven out of these 13 tracks work, some spectacularly so, and they succeed generally because the artists have usually dared to put their own stamp on the material, whether musically or lyrically.Let's dispense with the disappointments. Generally, it's probably NOT a good idea to try to stay strictly faithful to a U2 song when covering it. True, you might alienate fans by changing a beloved song, but to stay too close is to invite comparisons with U2 themselves, and few artists can survive such scrutiny. This proves true of Chris Tomlin and "Where the Streets Have No Name," the album closer and a track that adheres remarkably faithfully to the original, Joshua Tree studio track. But Tomlin, naturally, is not Bono, and his vocals just don't convey the emotion required for this song. Another problem here is that "Streets" has evolved over the years in concert to an even better, more emotional tune than the original studio version (witness the Popmart and 2002 Super Bowl versions), and slavishly adhering to the original track now seems like a mistake. The other disappointment is Delirious?' cover of Pride (In the Name of Love). The group does a better job than Tomlin at imitating U2, but it's just a straight cover song with nothing (except for a slightly different opening) to make it Delirious?' own.Remarkably, though, the rest of the tracks are very good to excellent. You may not like some of them, but they work. In each case, the artist in question has done something different with the song. Several different categories can be noted:*Radical changes on the musical end ("Love Is Blindness," "All I Want Is You," "With or Without You")*A less radical intensification on the musical end ("Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Beautiful Day," "Mysterious Ways")*Different vocal renditions, whether obvious or subtle ("One," "When Love Comes to Town," "40," "Mysterious Ways," "Grace")*Subtle lyrical shifts ("Mysterious Ways," "Gloria")The last category is perhaps the most interesting one. Near the end of "Gloria," Audio Adrenaline spells out "Gloria" in a manner similar yet different to Bono as seen in the Rattle and Hum film and some Elevation-era concerts. In those cases, Bono was covering Van Morrison's "Gloria" rather than referencing U2's "Gloria"; I wonder whether Audio Adrenaline intended a homage. At around the same point in the song, someone repeatedly shouts, "Do you believe in Him?", giving an evangelical emphasis to the tune not present in the original."Mysterious Ways" is more interesting. In this version, it's "she" and not "Johnny" that is "sliding down" (original lyric: "She's slippy/You're sliding down"; Tobymac version: "She's slippy/She's sliding down"), and instead of raising the question, "Is she going to be there when you hit the ground?," Tobymac asserts confidently, "She's gonna be there when you hit the ground." Furthermore, Tobymac and cohort Sarah Kelly (who provides an incredible, soulful vocal) leave no doubt as to their interpretation of who "she" is, as the line "Spirit moves in mysterious ways" appears early in the song and is repeated multiple times. (In the original U2 version, that line appears only near the end of the song.)"Mysterious Ways" is one of the three best songs on this album, and "Love Is Blindness" (Sixpence None the Richer, in an ethereal take on the darker original) is the other runner-up. But the best cover on this album belongs to Nichole Nordeman and "Grace." The song is transformed with a female singing the lead vocals from an interesting meditation on theology to a resonant, deeply moving reflection. (It helps that Nordeman's vocals are wonderful.) And while I hesitate to say this, I think that this version actually surpasses the original.So enjoy "In the Name of Love." Eleven hits and two misses is not a bad ratio.5Five Starsgreat5Not veering far afield in the interpretive path these songs still feel like old friends."In the Name of Love: Artists United For Africa" is a collection of U2 songs by a variety of maintstream Christian artists most of whom send up their fairly straightforward cover of a selected song from the U2 canon ranging from their "Boy" album up through "All That You Can't Leave Behind". The songs are all solid but if you're looking for an artist's individual interpretation, i.e., did they "do it differently" (DID) by either putting the song in a different musical style, giving it a different tone, or changing the lyrics, or applying a different energy or making it their own, then you're likely to be disappointed here. You will find brief comments about the following songs including the DID (did they "do it differently")."Sunday Bloody Sunday" by Pillar. DID? Nope."Beautiful Day" by Sanctus Real. DID? Nope. This has never popped up as one of my favorite U2 tracks but hearing it by another artist makes me appreciate just how strong and how great this song really is."40" by Starfield. DID? No."Love Is Blindness" by Sixpence None the Richer. DID? Yes. Sixpence manages to keep the ominous tone of the song with the use of what sounds like a xylophone even! No kidding! They make this their version and the song is better for it."Gloria" by Audio Adrenaline. DID? Nope. Good energy though as U2 has shown by how they've brought it out in concernt. AA's verson sounds like a concert version."Grace" by Nichole Nordeman. DID? I think so. This song begs to be sung by a female vocalist who has a distinctly feminine feel and warmth to their voice and Nordeman does the job here. Favorite track on the album for me."All I Want Is You" by Jars of Clay. DID? Yes, unfortunately. This, of course, is a matter of preference. I really enjoy most of Jars' stuff but they turn the terrific "Rattle and Hum" album closer, fraught with it's impassioned swirling vocals on the original, into a twangy countrified jamboree. It's not bad but it loses the heavy emotional emphasis of the original and that disappoints me."Mysterious Ways" by Toby Mac. DID? Not really. There are electronic fourishes here not found on the original but they ultimately add little."Pride (In the Name of Love)" by Delirious? DID? No."One" by Tait. DID? Nope. But what a great song and DC Talk's black singer who is the rock star of the group amidst the two white guys holds his own in this song. Good one."With Or Without You" by GRITS (featuring Jadyn Maria). DID? Yes, they turned this into a hip hop slow jam."When Love Comes To Town" by Todd Agnew. DID? No. Keeps the blues and Agnew's deeper, gutteral style is more akin to B.B. King's vocals than to Bonos."Where the Streets Have No Name" by Chris Tomlin. DID? Not at all. Poor way to close the album IMO as this will always be an album opener type of track and you might as well have been listening to U2 anyways as Tomlin's version is so similar.One last thing for those who might care...this CD, when originally sold from a retailer, was supposed to have some portion of its sales proceeds go to World Vision. I'm sure a used copy wouldn't be doing this but a new copy still might...Per the album sleeve: "A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this album goes directly to World Vision to help fight the AIDS crisis in Africa. World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization serving the world's poorest children in over 100 countries. World Vision exists to call people to a life-changing commitment to serve the poor in the name of Christ." They truly are a wonderful organization and if you can buy a new copy then you just might still be supporting this cause with your $$.4
