Technically this should probably be 4 stars; 4.5 stars is a bit generous. There were several minor mistakes throughout by the band and numerous lyrical missteps by Bono. It was the day after his birthday, so they're all probably a bit hungover. The reason the performance gets the higher rating is because of all the improvisation at this show, and because it's clear the band are having a great time on stage.
The transition between UTEOTW and NYD is always good, but here it is probably my favourite live U2 moment ever. Bono repeats 'is this rock n roll?' until the very end of UTEOTW when he screams 'WHAT THE F**K IS ROCK AND ROLL?' and then just shouts at the top of his lungs for the 'yeah!' part in the NYD opening.
Mostly very good, but with some hissing. Streets and ESPECIALLY Pride have worse sound than the rest of the bootleg. Recording: Audience microphone - 4 stars
Audience are good but not a huge part of this recording, really.
One of my favourite bootlegs. The sound is mostly really good and the performance is very interesting and unique, and the setlist it great. This show is very one-of-a-kind.
- The Fly, with an improvised rap in the middle
- Mysterious Ways with a great intro ('show me how to do it now!')
- Until the End of the World (best ever performance and transition)
- New Year's Day
- Wild Rover
- Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around the World (long performance, Bono stumbles with the lyrics a bit but very fun)
- I Still Haven't Found (unplugged, and with great drumming, and a totally improvised verse!)
- Bullet the Blue Sky (Bono starts with the second verse and then mashes the first and second verse together, but it's a powerful version with improvised lyrics)
- Mr MacPhisto is always funny, even though Bono was still figuring him out at this stage
- Ultra Violet
- Love Is Blindness (as always!)

"Eventually the economic forces gang up on you. And those are the same forces that if you don't have a hit single on your record get you dropped from the label. All those things are somewhere in the back of your head. You're not allowed to fail."

The band considered releasing The Joshua Tree as a double-album that would have included B-sides. Bono was the most vocal proponent of the idea, whereas The Edge argued for the 11-track version that was ultimately released.
