'The photobook and CD have arrived ! It's simply unbelievable and takes me back to the six shows I went to in Europe. What a mindblowing CD. They're only getting better ....'

A handsome parcel enclosing From The Ground Up: U2.com Music Edition is now landing, with a thud, on the doorsteps of U2.com subscribers around the world.

The lavish photobook telling the inside story of U2360°, complete with the limited-edition CD Edge's Picks, is getting rave reviews.

'My copy arrived yesterday and it made my year. The design and quality are incredible, and the music? Wow!  From the very first listen I was transported back to Croke Park on those two incredible nights...'

Great reception too for the FIVE bonus live downloads available as soon as you subscribe (or resubscribe) to U2.com - Desire, Pride, Angel of Harlem, Spanish Eyes and No Line On The Horizon.
 'An absolutely brilliant 2012 for live music from U2.com... many, many thanks.'

Excellent
With the Rose Bowl DVD, the U22 set, and Edge's Picks, I feel that I have a fairly complete song list from the 360 tour, including the songs performed at Mile High in Denver. The sound quality is excellent too.

Salvo2905, I agree with you!!!
I'm from sicily too and had my copy today. Had not yet time to hear it all, but Your Blue Room is OUTSTANDING!!!! for sure. Thanks Edge to put together this CD; I'm without BREATHE for the astonishing book, felt taken in an ELECTRICAL STORM (missed it in Milan, I was at the previuos show) and suddenly went CRAZY!! Thanks U2 for taking me again at those wonderful evenings (Milano and Roma) when you took us to the sky, without falling down...

Pure Bliss in Southern MN USA
I knew when I heard the dogs barking at the mailman my package was here. And when Hubby handed me my much anticipated package I screamed like the girls did when Elvis shook his pelvis. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! Bono, The Edge, Adam, and Larry your music and lyrics touch every part of my soul. No other band comes close to what you give your fans. Pure bliss!

Thank you from Germany
Absolut the highest Heartbeat when i pick up the Package ...feels so heavy in my hand. Opening and getting blast off from the visual Look.... Love the Pictures from the Chicago Skyline, Bono dancing in the Rain in Moscow, The Edge at Glastonbury with "This in no Rehersal" Letters in the Back...and being surprised to find a View from the Berlin Stage, ONE of three Concerts who i am... "My Blue Room" an Electrical Storm" never sounds better on this GREAT Edges Picks CD. To have 43 Tracks (U22+15 Edges+6 Downloads) are more than i dream of to have from this unforgettable Tour.

Seriously amazing gift!
Got my copy safely delivered this week and was amazed to find what was hiding inside the box. Love the CD (Your Blue Room and Electrical Storm are the standouts) but the book went way beyond my expectations. Thankyou U2, there are many reasons why U2 are the best band ever and this is one of them!

Finally - An official release of a song from a show I attended! Edge, excellent choices on the versions of these tunes and thank you, the band, Willie, Joe, Paul and everyone for letting us in the audience be a part of the show every night. I was at 5 of these things: Dublin 1 & 2, Foxboro 1 & 2, and New Jersey-2011. All of us are getting ready for next time. Kevin in Massachusetts

Just listening to it now
Came home from a fabulous day at work....and there it was waiting for me! I am presently listening to it for the first time and it is bringing me back to the concert! The book is incredible too! I am so impressed. I will have to hide away and spend some time reliving the moments this weekend! I am always amazed at the quality of what is sent to me....I have been a fan since my first concert in Toronto in 1985...nothing has changed...still my favourite band of all times! It is not only the music and the merchandise that impresses me; it is also their passions and convictions of making changed in this world! They speak my language!

Unforgettable!!!!
From The Ground Up just made it to Hudson Florida! I was expecting something somewhat cheap, I was buying it for the CD anyway. But I was not prepared for what I received today, a beautiful full size hard cover book with immaculate detail! This is the best tour documenting I've ever seen! U2.com is delivering only the finest keepsakes to fans all around the world! They keep me subscribing year after year! This book and CD is just as elaborate as the 360 Tour itself! Thank you so much U2.com!!!

Simply Amazing
Thank you U2.com for a quite incredible package just for the fans. Couldn't put the book down - incredibly good read. Loved the B&W photos. And as for the CD - great choices by Edge, especially Blue Room, Breathe and 40 (great Bono blessing). What do you do to top that?
