The Blackout is, I think, the best thing they've done since NLOTH. There are better songs they've made since then, but The Blackout is just really smart, and I really wish they'd gone harder on it, rather than acquiescing to Best Thing and Fuck Off Own Way. It's a punchy single with a great vibe and energy, and the band sounds engaged on it. It sounds organic. It's a really smart opener, and the equivalent of Vertigo and Elevation - which is high praise, because neither NLOTH nor SOI had one of those - although it just won't have the staying power of either of those two songs, because U2 are so much further down the road now.

Thanks. But it's not all bad news; there are some great things going on personally and professionally that I will feel more comfortable talking about in the coming months, but they require some conservative spending for a while. It's all good.

Don't drop it U2. Pretty please.
If they want this tour to possess some degree of sociopolitical relevance, Acrobat is a hell of a choice. "And you can dream, so dream out loud, and don't let the bastards grind you down" hasn't seemed such a necessary refrain in ages. It's such a restless, iconoclastic song.
