Wrote a really long response on that Daily Beast review and how I feel about the record after living with it for a month and going into the new year, but accidentally deleted it.

I...I will begin again.

I like it also, it’s my favourite review of it so far. Like I said before, knowing how much passion and earnestness they put into this project makes me wish I liked the record more than I do. Thematically I personally find what they were trying to do very appealing on a personal level.

I’ve always liked it. Never loved it. I wish Bono wasn’t so wordy in the verses. Always seemed a bit off kilter to me but I still really enjoy the chorus and overall atmosphere of the song.

Some of those songs sound like obligatory inserts suggested by his staff.

-"Um, Mr. President, U2 did play at your inauguration, sooo...."
-"Whatever, fine. You pick something."
-"Well, Bono did write a song about Nelson Mandela"
-"Yeah. Perfect. Use that one."

Ordinary Love is a great song, but it should have stayed in 2013.
