Comments:
The second collection/greatest hits album by U2 covers their work during the 1990s. The collection includes a new release "Electrical Storm (William Orbit Mix)" and "The Hands that Built America", this last one nominated for an Oscar for "best song for a movie", the movie "Gangs of New York".   Fan favorites: "The Fly", "Please" and "The ground beneath her feet" were left out of the collection to the dismay of many fans.  Like with the the first collection release, a B-sides Special Edition CD was also released during the first week.  A History Mix DVD was also included.

There is a lyric line difference in the "Acthung Baby" version of  "Mysterious Ways" and the one that appears on this collection:
In "Achtung Baby": "She's the wave, she turns the tide , she sees the man inside the child..."
In the collection : "She's the wave, she turns the tide and no questions she knows why..."

The woman in the "Electrical Storm" video is actress Samantha Morton.
