Most of the tracks on this album are so-so, some are Karoake-like ("Beautiful Day") while others who put in more effort seem misguided ("With or Without You"), but Pillar's version of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" may be the one track on this album that is arguably better than the U2 original.

U2 owned the song. I'm must say that the owners play the song best. Piller's rendition, though catchy and well done, pales in comparison when the original U2 song is rolling through your mind.

Well if they think Pillar's version is good they need to check out Evergreen Terrace's version the secret track on ET's first album it makes Pillar's look bad, very bad.
