Same here -- the part where Bono kicks in is just amazing and emotional

The oh oh oh oh part sounds so familiar like it's from another U2 song, but I just can't put my finger on it and part of the song sounds a little like Sgt. Peppers.

It does have a Pepper's era feel. But in an original way.

I have ranked Unknown Caller as tied with Crazy Tonight as the best record on the album. I absolutely love this song.. it is going to be in my short list of top songs for sure.

There is so many sublime moments on this complex and dense song! It features some of Edge's best ever work, the whole band just gels. Many twists and turns, atmospheric and direct at the same time. I've never held U2's technical musicianship as very high, but this album, and this song really shows that they have grown musically.

Gotta agree. It was a beach clip favourite and even on them shitty recordings you could hear the potential. When you hear it in all its glories, fuck it is class. I can honestly say I haven't been so hyped by a U2 song since the 90's!

It's my favourite song off the album BIG TIME. I am seriously struggling to think back to when I enjoyed a U2 song as much as this one.

Oh, a sidepoint: Moss and Roy also appreciate the song. I have it on good authority that they plan to use the choruses as part of their automated tech support hotline.

I don't know if anyone has suggested this, but I'm beginning to think Edge's interesting UC guitar tone is supposed to recall the sound of a phone dialing/ringing.

At first I was puzzled with the tone, but now I think - especially based on some backtracks that seem to add to the effect - that the guitar becomes the "Unknown Call" for surrender. Making this solo even more epic.

Really disliked it at first, mainly due to the odd chorus. But man, this one has grown on me big time. The solo at the end is one of the most soulful solos that Edge has ever laid down on an album track.

Beautiful.
