My opinion isnt more valid but i just cant find any redeeming features in it.If someone likes it then that their choice but to me its just horrific.Almost as if Bono is an "embarrasing Dad" dancing,trying to be cool and even rap.Makes me sad because i love U2 so much.

What's the difference? One person says it's awesome. Another says its poor.

Is this person's opinion less valid because he or she has a negative opinion?

I agree. I'd like to hear whatever session that drunken Larry fill at the top of the song came from. Coolest performance on the whole song, but it's just flown in at a couple of spots to remind us that humans played on this track.

I like the song more than most here I guess, but it's bizarre how robotic and pasted together a lot of U2's 00's material has been. Listen even to BD - the changes sound like seams, you know? Of course, they learn to bring it live, but it seems like they're afraid to sound like a rock band on record.

I guess Vertigo, like it or not, represents a pretty good approximation of four guys in a room...

Get on your boots" 10 years from now. Right now I have a real urge to listen to Ultraviolet. I really love that song. But I don't know, I reallly do NOT know whether I will feel about the same about this song.
Best post in long IMO. I never ever get the urge to put Vertigo on. Like this song, it has no emotional impact. A great U2 song for me is a song that either mirrors, or helps propel you out of, a state of mind; something that's either transcendental or comforting. I don't get this from GOYB. I'm almost scared to keep listening to it because I like it less and less...

The Fly comparisons are so so far off the mark it isn't true. The Fly for me is one of the great rock lyrics...

Still got high hopes for NLOTH though

I think the Fly comparisons are in terms of sort of a shift in direction rather than the song itself.

Boots seems to pull off the cut and paste style better than Feel Loved. Up until now I thought Feel Loved was their best effort in that department. I think Boots is able to sustain momentum throughout the songs choppiness. Whereas, Feel Loved has that domineering bass line that the song always falls back on for its momentum.

Lemon is a brilliant song, but Bono's falsetto vocal lead does not hold up well, imo. The vocal on Boots definitely appears to be another 'character' vocal. I'm wondering if there's multiple roles in this song. What I think makes this lead vocal better than Lemon's is that he's able find a naturally higher tone in his voice that sounds clear as opposed to that pinched Lemon falsetto that has very little strength behind it.

It's growing on me, although I'll probably be totally sold once I get to see the video. There is going to be a video I hope?

I think the video will really help this song.

I can imagine it being quite awesome.
