Elevation is horrible on the album, but electric in a live setting. I could go through a laundry list of reasons why the studio version sucks so much, but I'm sure that's unnecessary.

Like everyone else i've waited over 4 bloody years for the new album and i just want it to be dead good .

I nearly always like their new stuff...from JT to AB,Pop,Zooropa etc and tend not to play the real older material now so i'm pinning my hopes on another great collective piece of music.

Elevation is incredible live, I'll give it that. I have a soft spot for Elevation because I think it was the first U2 song I ever paid any attention to. (I think I first heard it on So Fresh Spring 2001 when i was 11)

And HMTMKMKM really should be on Pop.

I remember seeing the Elevation video when I was, like, 9 or 10 years old and thinking "WOAH OMZG THAT'S SO COOL DUDE! WOAH!! PLEASE SAVE THE EDGE!!!!1111"

Wait...why did I just admit that? Oh, right, it's almost 4 AM and I'm not thinking straight.

An instant classic for me, probably up there with Bono's finest in terms of vocals and songwriting. No wonder it's my second favourite, the video clip is just beautiful.

I actually think Bono's favourite is now Miss Sarajevo.

I can agree with that, yeah but Zooropa was rarely played live so you can't really tell.

HMTMKMKM is kickass, U2 go glam rock and Batman.

Yeah the live versions are quite electric, I particulary liked the Slane version.

I thought Mofo got better live as the Popmart Tour went on. Although I wish they hadn't dropped the last verse of the song when they played it live.

I remember listening to my Dad's albums of 'Achtung Baby' and 'Rattle and Hum' when I was about 8-10 and really liking them but having no real idea who U2 were or anything like that. Then I remember hearing 'Elevation' on the radio, I must have been about 10 or 11, thinking that the song was fucking awesome and slowly realising that it was this same band. I'm quite sure that sparked my interest in finding out more about U2 and hence becoming the obsessed fan I am today.
