Reviewed by Tony Cummings

U2's management may have insisted that there be no sign of U2's name on the front sleeve, but casual browsers will surely grasp what's going on here - 13 well known Christian bands performing covers of U2 songs with a portion of the proceeds going to help the AIDS pandemic in Africa. Some of the renditions here are wonderful. Pillar bring new bite and passion to "Sunday, Bloody Sunday", Nichole Nordeman offers a billowingly haunting version of "Grace", Delirious? demonstrate again to U2 with a convincing version of "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" and Audio Adrenaline show they've lost none of their bombastic resonance on "Gloria". Occasionally, the versions work less well. Jars Of Clay don't sound like the band we know and love on "All I Want Is You" while no one would suggest Todd Agnew's version of "When Love Comes To Town" comes close to the original. But with some refreshingly inventive takes on the U2 cannon, Grits' version of "With You Or Without You" and TobyMac's take on "Mysterious Ways", the unprejudiced listener can't fail to be impressed with the quality of most of the covers. The enhanced CD also features extracts from Walk On: The Spiritual Journey Of U2 and The Awake Project: Uniting Against The African AIDS crisis.
