I re-listened to 'Invisible' today and, what a pleasure.

I found myself a tad more immersed in the lyrics and I thought of a comparison/similarity with "We're one, but we're not the same". Even if the contexts of the two songs are totally different, I found a similar anger towards another person who in the case of 'Invisible' judges you, excludes you, has "frozen ways", and most of anything, doesn't let you to be YOURSELF.

The final verse sounds like an intention or wish...from now on, may there be no them, but us and them together as "us". "Only you, only me" refers to the importance of individuality, of being ourselves, "body in a SOUL".

Plus, I must say that I enjoy the music.

For me the only "fault" of 'Invisible' is that is (for my tastes) a bit short towards the end. When there's that "I am not invisible, I am here", that guitar solo sounds like if it's damped, it doesn't express the full potentiality that the song melodically has. I would've liked maybe a bridge or something, a variation, something that prolongs that (in my case ) melodic pleasure.

Me three but not because I don't like the song. I just strongly dislike the band that released it.

I actually caught part of it on satellite radio a little while ago. I did turn it up and listen to it, and was pleased.

But then annoyed again afterward.

I still think it's a mediocre song at best.

Yeah I haven't heard it in ages. Good song, but all my interest in U2 is dead right now.

I almost fooled myself into liking it for a day, but it was just because I didn't want to admit the sad truth. U2 have lost their creative touch. I don't care about relevance or mainstream vs. experimental. I just think it's a boring song.

I am on the fence about this song. On the one hand I like the Speak And Spell-era Depeche Mode flavor it has to it and the mantra at the end. On the other hand it's a bit too hypersensitive and melodramatic, even for U2 standards.

I listened to it today for the first time in a while. I still think it's a really good song and all, full of energy and light years better than anything on No Line (other than Moment of Surrender).

Problem is there's just so many times you can listen to the same song without anything else to go to before it drives you crazy. Usually by the end of a new singles gestation period there's, ya know, more songs.

They really fucked the pooch by not having the album ready to go after this single came out.

It may be one of the worst marketing decisions by a band in a long long time.

Biggest marketing fuckup since Pop era, definitely.
