I gave it 5/10.. its a ok song but lacks depth and warm organic sound.. i find this song too cold and computerised, and the chorus is a little too "teenager" for me..

Hope the album is better

If this is any indication to the rest of the album. I can't wait!!! 9/10 for me. The only complaint that I have is that it is an edited version.

So if we're rating it 1-10, 10 being great, 5 being average and 1 being Get On Your Boots... I'll give this one a solid 7 to 7.5.

Good, very good even... but I'm not coocoo enough to start placing this bad boy in the pantheon just yet.

I went ahead and gave it an '8' initially because of reasons I can't quite sort out.
Guess I just like it. Its quite a bit more impressive than Ordinary Love, its instantly recognizable, catchy, unmistakenly U2, etc.

I wouldn't surprised if a longer video is released to this and I also would be surprised if the album name was 'invisible'

My cats don't seem to hate it, and they are rather picky. So if it passes their test then it must not be too bad.

Scale of 1-10 compared to Boy/October/War period songs:
Invisible: 8
Other songs: 7

UF/JT/R&H period:
Invisible: 5.5
Other songs: 10

AB/Zooropa/POP period:
Invisible: 6.5
Other songs: 8.5 (would've been a 10 just for AB alone but the other 2 bring the score down)

ATYCLB/HTDAAB/NLOTH period:
Invisible: 7
Other songs: 5 (would've been much lower but BD, Kite, IALW, and COBL bring it up)

We're talking about the same type of person who doesn't "hear" Larry on this track, either.

Apparently so, since they claim Larry and Edge aren't on this track...

I gave it a 5.

I wanted to give it more but even though the song is good... it's certainly nothing groundbreaking. I feel that these days, U2 are devoid of any new ideas and any experimentation they try is too prescriptive and formulaic. It sounds too over-produced in the sense that it doesn't sound spontaneous.

Hopefully though... and I still live in hope, that this is one of the more 'accessible' tracks from the forthcoming album and its release as a freebie is a reflection of this.

If you want to hear a great comeback single, listen to the new release from Embrace. They've been away for eight years and have come back with something fresh and different :

I never understand why people want U2 to be groundbreaking on every new album I am a U2 fan because well I like U2

I know what you mean....every song needs to be 'the fly' or 'Fez-BB' or 'Mofo' or whatever. The new song does sound different enough to get people's attention, yet it still sounds U2*ish at the same time. That seems like a win-win to me...still not enough for some though.

For a long time U2 shifted gears to some pretty significant degree on each album. It's natural that this is one of the things that a lot of their fans really liked, part of what they found attractive to begin with, and would really like to see again. They've kind of switched from keeping a 20% core of U2 on each album while shaking up the 80% around it, to keeping 80% and slightly shuffling 20%.
