At this point, if Bono enters a room with a lyric that describes anything as being like something else, the band should tell him to go back and work on it some more. Tell him to read some better books, as he so clearly was during the 1987-93 era.

Hard to believe so many musicians, producers, etc all hear a line like that and say, "yep, that's the best he can possibly do."
I was watching this yesterday (seemingly unrelated and totally random, but watch it) and it gives an interesting perspective on this particular phenomenon:

The Best Thing sounds like any EDM + pop/rock singer collaboration from the past five years. Very much a Kygo ft. Bono track, if I had to guess. I doubt this is an indication of where the band as a whole is headed.

As for the song itself, I don't like it very much, but it isn't horrendous. Its biggest sin is being boring and unremarkable.

I think it's way too early to judge the song based on a bootleg recording of a Kygo remix of the album version...well other than the fact that it has baaaaaaad lyrics.

Overall it sounds like it could be catchy which I know is important to the band. Should be interesting to see when they actually release the single. I'm sure they're tempted too now, but then it would be about a 3 month gap between the single and album which is really long.

We don't have a confirmed album date so why are you throwing the 3-month thing around?

Cripes, I thought that was Edge next to him, I was more worried about that to be honest...
