After seeing thr music video, i really thought this song woukd kick ass in live concert. Possibly even a good opener. But seeing it in person mutliple times, i must admit i was underwhelmed with it, with the crowd response to it and choice to do it in the screen

I think the choice to do it inside the screen is what makes it underwhelming. It wows at first, but the novelty wears off and it detracts from the song.

Do you figure this will be one of the songs dropped for the eXERIENCE part of the tour to make room for new Songs? Or will they see it as essential part of the show for the screen aspect?

They'll drop it. The crowd just wasn't into it

It was missing an element with the screen. It needed to explode at some point ..the screen needed to transition to something like the effect from the video. It stayed too subtle for too long for a song that not everyone was familiar with. I did enjoy how it sounded live, so as a fan I hope it's there next round. But I'd understand if they felt it wasn't getting the pop it deserved and dropped it.

Yeah, it sounded good. I hope they keep it.

What I really want in round two is the full band/album version of EBW

This song holds up so well, it sounds fresh but like U2. Should have been on SOI, which should have been launched after the Super Bowl. What might have been.

Sorry, very random

It is a really good track, high energy and some lyrics that are really heavy, with anger, tension and personal - the way U2 should be. Unfortunately it does sound a bit 'manufactured' and not raw enough. the electro drums dont help.

I don’t mind the electronic drums, what I love though is that it doesn’t sound forced, like they’re trying SO HARD! To me this, SLABT, Troubles, a few others on SOI sound creatively free and easy, which they weren’t, but you can’t hear it. I like SOE, but it all sounds like they are trying too hard, even the best stuff like Little Things. IMHO, they actually got the opposite result of what they wanted with SOE

Danger Mouse gave us a tase of something great, and we waited 6 months to see his efforts watered down by some pop assholes.

I am not as familiar with the specific influences of the different producers. I know Tedder is considered the pop guy. But I take a simple view of things and if a song is great or terrible, I lay that at the band's feet, not the hired merceneries brought in to prop them up.

Like if a Coke ad insults or offends me, I am not interested in the ad agency involved - it's a Coke fail.

Alternatively, you can view a producer as a possible mentor figure, serving to guide and inspire those in reaching their fullest potential. Granted, the end result ultimately rests on the shoulders of the artist, but how they achieve that outcome can be represented in the difference between having Mr. Miyagi or Michael Scott in your corner.

Totally.

Invisible, and the final 3 tracks on SoI make me believe that if Dangermouse had been given the full producer responsibility we could have had a truly great album. It's still a very good album, but largely due to the songs he produced.

Agree totally. SOI is meh to me until those final 3 tracks. Could have wept when I read the producer credits to realise what could have been if DM did the whole thing.

Invisible is a great song if nothing else because it has a proper old school Edge guitar riff in it.

To me Invisible is really bland and the definition of U2 trying to be U2. Not quite as bland as Get Out, but pretty close. To me, not as good as any song on SOI except for Song for Someone. If it had replaced SFS, I could live with that. But the only real choice for that replacement is The Crystal Ballroom. Blows them both away.
