Appreciation thread for NLOTH : live !

Now that the first leg is almost over and we heard/saw the songs...what do you think of No line live ?

Nice to see Larry sing along on UC, MOS and Boots.

NLOTH: a bit more agressive, compared to the live version. "I'm a traffic cop!" part hits it live.
Magnificent: not sure the longer "oh oh oh" Bono intro works, otherwise good.
MOS: beautiful closer. Gutsy from Bono to sing this after a full 2hour show.
UC: good, though I'm not quite sold on the chorus singalong they try in the show.
Crazy: It's catchy on the album but WOW talk about a transformation live.
Boots: thought this would open the show-or the encore. Grower live compared to album, especially the twisted EU hymn intro and "let me in the sound" part.
Breathe: it's getting mixed reviews but my second favourite after Crazy. Larry's intro alone gets things off to a good start.

Unknown Caller is the biggest surprise. I didn't even expect it be played, and it's been amazing!

NLOTH and Crazy Tonight slay live.

Most of the rest are pretty good too, though Breathe fails hard as a show opener.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

All of them are great so far, but NLOTH songs seem to be the kind that need a official release so we can really hear the whole thing properly.

I'm pretty happy with the live performances of all the new songs so far. NLOTH is especially great, so full of energy and with Bono really into his incredibly passionate guitar playing I found a lot of people loving the tune, singing along to it.

The Crazy remix was a couragous move and, IMO, worked very well, Boots is the first real rocker. MOS is a beautiful closer and Bono seems to love it and is very much into it. Amazing vocal performance.

I like all the new songs, I only wish they'd play Fez and Stand up comedy as well.

They need to pull out Cedars of Lebanon!!! I think they should drop UC though and replace it with A Sort of Homecoming Magnificent is pretty good but the crowd has to be great for it to work. And despite what many people think, I think MOS is a perfect closer!

I'm surprised at how good Unknown Caller is live, not one of my fave songs by a long way, but live, it's really pretty good.
Boots, Magnificent, NLOTH and in particular CRAZY are all excellent.
Breath is an epic fail as an opener. If they could perfect FEZ - being born, that would be worth a try.

So happy that they haven't played Stand Up Comedy yet, hope they never will.
