The lyrics are basically a rehashing of Do You Feel Loved? which I adore! But Yahweh is...a bad song. I didn't even like the acoustic version over the credits of U23D. Miracle Drug, LAPOE, COBL, OSS. Those are the only keepers from Bomb.

Though I love most everything on it.

The start of the album version blows out of my fucking ear drums and usually scares the piss out of me. I tend to skip it in favour of my Chicago audio of it.
It's definitely been my favourite since 2004. Possibly 2003 but, like I said, that means checking archives.

I don't really like when U2 do acoustic versions. They're too insubstantial. This is true of Yahweh, but yeah, at least it doesn't have some of the horrible studio version elements.

It's almost like they thought "well, re-recording Pop would be silly ... let's turn one of its songs into some silly, fluffy religious number to redeem us for our sins!"

As for the songs to keep, replace Miracle Drug with Crumbs and I'll agree.
