    Where's The Fly? That's probably the best video they've ever done.

    Sweet! As a huge U2 fan I can't wait =)

    You're so right Paul, where the heck is "the fly"?? Maybe in an easter egg? Hmm odd

    This is a bummer, why start at 1990? I was into U2 in the 80s from the 1st album but not so keen on the 90s stuff.

    Johnny - as I'm sure you're aware, they already released their 1980-1990 CD compilation. Its a pity they didn't release a DVD version with videos as well at the time, but there you go.

    Personally, I only liked them from 1990 onwards, so this suits me, but thats choice for you.

    Sounds nice, but sounds incomplete. I would've liked to be able to retire my U2 Zoo-TV LD, but I guess I'll be hanging onto it for a while longer yet....

    "The Fly" was originally listed on the website as the last track but then removed. It's almost certainly a hidden track. I'd be pretty stunned if it wasn't on this dvd. And yes, they need to get more '80s-era stuff on dvd!

    The Electrical Storm DVD comes out tomorrow. Does anyone else think its a rip-off? I checked around and its $20 for the song, video, sound clips and some photographs. I might have picked this up for $10 or less but $20 seems a bit excessive.

    OK, I am a bit confused here. The Limited CD Edition of U2: Best of 1990 - 2000 contains a bonus DVD. According to Amazon's site, the DVD will contain "a collection of live and video performances from 1990-2000." So, is this the same disc that's coming out on Dec. 2nd, or a different DVD?
