OTHER NOTES
Original Soundtracks No. 1 was a 1995 release by U2.  Since the album featured Brian Eno heavily throughout the album in instrumentation, vocals etc., it was decided not to release the album as a U2 album, but to release it under the name Passengers.  Once decided, other Passengers were brought into the project to contribute vocals, most notably Luciano Pavarotti and Holi.  However, because of the change in name, the release got a lot less notice than a U2 album would have.

For those who would argue that this should not fit under the banner of a U2 album, I point towards U2's Best of 1990 - 2000 & B Sides album which features "Miss Sarajevo" and "Your Blue Room".  Obviously U2 consider this an album from their catalog, sowe shall do the same.

The album is a different, more "artistic" album than anything U2 had done before.  It was very experimental and failed to find a large audience.  It was U2's least selling album of the 1990s.  And the lead single, "Miss Sarajevo" failed to chart in North America, causing a second planned single, "Your Blue Room" to be cancelled.  Larry Mullen has gone on record as exclaiming that it was his least favorite U2 project ever.  Rumours circulated for some time that a follow up album was in the works, but now, many years later, it looks like the Passengers project has been put to rest.
