Landlady Appreciation Thread

To those that were lucky enough to hear the leak so far, how about this song?!

This song was written off early as one of the weaker tracks of the album from those who heard it during the listening sessions.

It’s haunting, beautiful, passionate, and has melancholy to it.

It’s the one song on the album where I completely believe Bono in what he is saying. Such a natural tune.

This will for sure crack my top ten U2 songs.

The sound quality is too low, but I like how U2 did adult contemporary and it doesn’t suck. It doesn’t sound like AMAAW like some described. One of the better tracks on this album.

While I'm not super crazy about the song compared to most of the rest of the album, I have to say that the part that starts at 2:55, the "every wave that broke me, every song that wrote me, etc." is one of the single greatest moments on the entire album. Holy crap.

So far it's my least favourite on the album! But once I hear it again at good quality that might change.

This song has probably gained the most from repeat listenings

Agreed, one of my faves for sure, and as you say comes across as genuine.

It was good that I had heard mostly negative things about this song. I was even more pleasantly surprised....very beautiful song.

The Boxer Rebellion - You Can Love Me

Landlady’s climactic melody is sadly similar.

This song is beautiful. Authentic and heartbreaking and hopeful. All the times I wished U2 would lay off the over-production over the last few decades and let their songs breath, have some space? Well - Landlady does it for me.

Best song.

This will go down in the all time greats for me.

If I had one wish, it’s that the Johnny Marr-ish riff in the Middle came back at the end to close out the song. Maybe that’ll be an idea for live..

The melody sounds sort of familiar, but not in a bad way. In a comforting way, if that makes sense.

It does sound familiar, and I couldn’t be happier that it sounds like a song/emotion that’s been in the back of my mind..and middle of my chest all my life.

I really love this song, guys.

It feels like something that can only be written after 40 years of letting someone down and not being dumped for it. And how many people can say they've experienced that? And yet it's a song that makes me feel like I know this, I feel this, I love this way too, I hear him. He's done something I thought he didn't have the ability to do anymore.

I jumped on this song after hearing Bono’s description. I thought yes!!! This is my style.
Then I was crushed when the Twitter guy Saul who loved the album gave it a 4!!! And said it sucked.

So imagine my surprise when it turned out to be such an incredible, beautiful, haunting, real song.
I love it so much.
It reminds me of when I hit SLABT on SOI. This second side treasure.

I really can't recall a time where I've heard so many incorrect impressions about songs from early listens lol. Most of these songs aren't anywhere near what most reviews and early listeners described them as, thankfully. This one is the perfect example. Kept hearing generic, paint by numbers ballad, etc. Far from it.
