The thing that makes the Slane Castle DVD exceptional is the sound quality. It's outstanding for a live show and the best I've heard on a concert DVD. For financial reasons I had to decide between the Slane Castle and the Live in Boston DVDs. I felt that the Slane DVD would be the better bet because I figured U2 would give their all doing a concert in their native country at a venue that had special meaning to them. Later on I was able to see the Live in Boston DVD and although I felt that it was very good in its own right and probably had better features, I felt overall the Slane DVD was better. The Slane DVD is superior because they just did a better job on the songs. There are a few songs on the Slane DVD that I actually like more than the original studio versions. They are: 'Out of Control'; 'Kite'; 'All I Want Is You'; and 'Bullet The Blue Sky'. Truly outstanding. I hate to use the word "beautiful" but the Edge's guitar-playing in 'With Or Without You' is exactly that. He's truly at his melodic best in that number.
U2: Go Home is a great concert DVD and a must for anyone who digs U2.
