New as in post-NLOTH era.

Every Breaking Wave is less new if we're being pedantic

I love it so much, it's everything I ever wanted from them. Dumbfounded they didn't put it on the album, but as long as they play it live, I'll be okay.


I liked it fine when it came out, but this song just "hit" me recently. Really hope they play it live too.

Very disappointed that the band didn't put extra work into "Invisible." I'd dare say that the "Red Edit" is the better version. There's not enough variation going on to justify the longer length. That synth just doesn't work. Fun chorus, though, like "Window in the Skies"; typical post-'90s U2. Nothing amazing, but inspiring during a gym work out.

Does anybody know it is it credited in the CD booklet?
It's not credited at all. No lyrics or production credits -- like it's not there.

Agree with you on some things here. I really like the song. But it seems like to get the longer version they did a quick Copy-Paste job to lengthen it. There are no new riffs/vocals/anything.

The only real plus is the longer outro, which sounds good.

I really wish more and more that it happened the other way around with Invisible and Miracle release...

I agree with this. I'm just getting around to hearing the song this weekend, and it's good-ish, but nothing special. Honestly, I think U2 can write pop songs like this in their sleep. I also thought of 'Window in the Skies' when I heard it -- nice catchy melody, tasteful arrangement, Larry/Adam on autopilot, and somehow the end result is U2-by-Numbers blandness.

For this reason, I think I can see why it's not on SOI. Most of the new album's songs strike me as more challenging -- even though some of them ('Vocano', 'Cedarwood Road', 'California') aren't as "good" as Invisible, they're all more interesting sonically.

I have TCB between Miracle and EBW.
LH between Volcano and Wolves.
And Invisible between SLABT and Reach Me Now.
LH and Invisible fit like a glove in there.

Thematically, Invisible, This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now, the Miracle, and Lucifer's Hands all work together.

Adam and Larry aren't on autopilot. Musically the song is a tribute to Joy Division, and for that reason should have been on the album. There are the Clash and Ramones songs, Sleep Like A Baby paraphrases Kraftwerk, and there really ought to be Joy Division on there since U2 sounded more like them than anyone else. But I guess they've been paying tribute to Joy Division for their entire career, so maybe it would be redundant. I think it's more interesting than California than California, too.
