live segue into streets, anyone?

it feels like a very unsubtle hint at the end of the track.

also, brilliant song.

Love how the chorus chanting manages to be jarring and robotic yet emotional and human at the same time. Edge's best solo on the album.

I'm totally digging the whole UC thing...to be honest, it sounds like an acid trip to me...total 'Alice in Wonderland.' I imagine Eno slipping them something...and then 48 hours later they wake up and don't know what the hell happened...all the while they were running around shirtless playing the drum kit, pounding-out killer guitar solos, and chanting, with Eno running tape the entire time.

It's like U2 meets Pink Floyd (something that happens a lot through this album.) And while PF is not one of my favs, this works really, really, really well in this album. Amazingly well.

COMPLETELY exceeded my expectations based on the beach clip. One of my favourites. Strange and beautiful.
