AllMusic Review by

This two-fer from Island Records rounds up both of the label's popular career-overview U2 compilations. 1998's Best of 1980-1990 offers up the most ammunition, with radio hits like "Where the Streets Have No Name," "New Year's Day," "With or Without You," "Pride (In the Name of Love)", and "Desire," while 2002's Best of 1990-2000 focuses on the band's more experimental, Brian Eno-heavy period, with highlights arriving via songs like "Mysterious Ways," "Beautiful Day," and "One."
