A Missed Opportunity
13 January 2006 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Natalie has hit the nail on the head with her review of U2:NUMB . It's a video EP of sorts released to coincide with the U2 album ZOOROPA , an album which didn't have a single release , though Stay was released in a double A side with a Bono /Sinatra duet in time for Christmas a whole seven months after the release of ZOOROPA

Several videos were made for the album but none of them appear here apart from Numb which features The Edge singing into the camera while all sorts of shenanigans are going on in the background . We see another version of Numb with a montage of diverse clips and then we get Love Is Blindness which doesn't actually appear on ZOOROPA

I consider ZOOROPA to be the best U2 album from the 1990s but it's very sad there's little in the way of songs from the album used in this video EP . There's no Lemon or Stay which had promo videos shot and it's interesting to note that people who've voted on this item give a fairly even split from 10 to 1
