While a name like The Ultimate Tribute to U2 gives off an air of finality and officialese, nothing could be further from the truth with this earnest Cleopatra offering. Goth and industrial tributes from established bands like Dead or Alive ("Even Better Than the Real Thing"), the Mission UK ("All I Want Is You"), and Heaven 17 ("With or Without You") provide interesting takes on some of the Irish quartet's best-known anthems. But it's the erratic inconsistency in quality that makes this disc fail to live up to its name. An inexplicable collaboration between Front Line Assembly and '80s teen pop queen Tiffany on "New Year's Day" is unquestionably one of the highlights, but retains a kitschy, novel value that makes the song nothing more than a nostalgic curiosity. Die-hard U2 fans might find this compilation interesting, but fans with less than a passing interest should avoid this one at all costs.
