They are certainly among the best. I love their music but I also love Metallica and Iron Maiden, plus a few others. I have the Joshua Tree and The Best of U2 1980-1990. There are some great songs on there and I think Bono is a wonderful singer. He varies the tempo of his music and the content, so well.
