To be honest, it gets better with each listen and for the first time, I get it (at least I think I do!!). This has been discussed and drifted but today I actually listened to the message, not the song. Someone earlier made a comment to the extent (actually literally said) that it's a big "fuck you" to the terrorists. I tend to disagree. I personally think it's a big hug to all sides of conflict today. I believe it's almost a message of peace or at least a 2000's reprise of SBS but with a twist. I believe it's a message of hope and a plea for peace. That's my take.

Just listened to it twice in a row. It's definitely held strong. I'm not completely regretting the 8/10 I originally gave it.

It sounds to me about throwing away fear. At least that's what I get. I wonder if the video will be different than the song or uphold a particular message they want to get across.

I can totally get behind this statement. I think it is a call to action, in a semi-subtle way, and about letting go of fear to become active.

Good call, Purple.

this is a better poll than the other one. Quantifying the amount of like or dislike you have for a song is rather stupid and can be misleading. On the other poll, some people were saying the song is average and gave it a 7.

I really dug it after about two listens. I still really dig it. My only beef remains with the verses (don't like the melody, don't like the way Bono sings that part). But everything else, I love.

I like it a tad more than I did originally. Did not rate it then, but it's safe to say I thought it was a solid 6 (on the U2 scale, which is relative). I'd give it a 6.5 now, with an expected 7 or more when I hear this jim-jam Live.

That's my take too. But I'm still listening.

Can't say for sure, but I heard it on some really good speakers and it knocked me out.
I can't wait for the official release. I want to listen to it on vinyl on the speakers (not mine, unfortunately) I heard it on last night.

vertigo was a little embarassing in part for me (namely the count in intro with the delay on bonos voice and the same delay on the yeah yeah yeah'sat the end)

I find nothing like that in boots, a song to take home to meet your friends......

I like it more than I did before. I was listening to it on my way back from class yesterday and may or may not have been frolicking.

I gave it a 7 on the earlier poll, I'm probably at an 8 now. There are parts of it I really love.
