It’s great, just wish the drums were a bit louder.

God damn it, I really liked the live version. I hate change. It sounds different... slower and bass more in your face. First lesson I like live. Fuck.

They added more stuff to the song and I think it was perfect before. Hmm..........

Love it. I think the song gets more interesting and cool sounding from 3 minutes on. Love the dark, throbbing, string break. Really cool stuff. Gonna rip live, would be a great opener.

The "go easy on me" sections needed to be halved in length. They are twice as long as they should be, and the fact that it loops round a second time really slows down the momentum of the song.

Other than this, I like the song. It is atmospheric, and way more interesting than the live version. The bass is good.

The intro is too much like Zoo Station's intro IMO.

The rhyming names is really stupid and it annoys me how it's actually a thing.

I dig the vocal harmonies that either weren’t included or didn’t come through in the first version.

I prefer the chorus on the live version, just has more kick and lift off for some reason.

Love it. Some differences, yes, but the overall original/live vibe is there. Love the way the song ended.

That's also quite the bass.

Great song, another iffy mix with the muted drums and significantly less “punch” than the live version.

Their coolest song in quite some time. A song that I would actually play for non-U2 fans and say, you thought U2 was dead? Listen to this.

Can someone link to a stream? I've never streamed music in my life and was counting on the download we're supposed to get when we preorder the album but conveniently that never came with the purchase despite being told it did.
