Luckily I managed to get it. But the website has been horrible all evening. A mistake to put that track on no doubt.

From those threads "rank the post 2000's album tracks in order", it has made me realise that American Soul is gonna be rock bottom of that list for me.

Furthermore, either that or Miami will be my least favourite U2 album track of all time.

This is obviously only the case if my opinion of American Soul doesn't get any better than it is now. I seriously don't see how my opinion on it is ever gonna improve. Genuinely shocked at how bad a track this is

chorus aside, I like the song. It's got a nice T Rex vibe and it's musically solid...just the chorus...
It’s hard to believe that your initial post, which as the man stated was incredibly pretentious, somehow became even MORE pretentious with your next post. We get it, you only like U2 if they are making the songs exactly as you want them. You’re not really a fan, just an arrogant, condescending, pretentious prat. Move along now.

Even their songs titles on same album -- 3 songs with LOVE in title.... 2 songs with LIGHT.... many songs with crazy long sentence titles...

Just saying even their title to songs are stealing from each other...

We get it, you only like posts if they are uncritical, fawning affection for U2 expressed exactly as you want it. You're not really interested in discussion or different views, you're just an arrogant, condescending, pretentious troll. Move along now.

Also, this song would be decent if it weren't for the chorus or REFU-JESUS.

U2 have never recycled riffs or lyrics, never mind entire sections of songs that appeared on an album. The only other instance that's comparable is Spinning Head, and that was a b-side for a single from that album.

Go back to @U2, you dock

And yeah, I want U2 to make a song how I want it: it want it to be good. Or at the very least not embarassing. That chorus is the aural equivalent of watching someone scratch their balls in the subway...under the pants
