AYGWF? - All comments here! (NO REQUESTS)

Lets start this new thread to discuss this new song. Let's keep all email requests in the previous thread. I doubt this will work but lets try it.

Well, I only listene to it once, but I think it's really great so far. I definitely think it's kind of a grower, but still good!

I kind of think of it as a companion to Always.

I like it because it is a rock song, but it is a little dull overall. I'm glad it wasn't on the album. Also, I hate Bono's scratchy voice at 2:10 - 2:20 part.

Good b-side though.

It's a good song and for a b-side, it's a really good song! Edge's guitar is present! I like it!

A little too repetitive for me, both lyrics and tone.

The breakdown at 2:23 reminds me of Wild Horses!

Again, I think the intro sounds like Jimmy Hendrix's Foxy Lady and the guitar sounds like Smells like Teen spirit.

But hey - I'm not complaining!

It's ok. Not mind-blowing, definetly one of their worst b-sides, especially if you compare it to Lady With The Spinning Head and Summer Rain. It's ok.

I've heard it twice.
Thoughts:
Quality wise I actually like it better than three of the songs on the last album.
That said it lacks punch. The fact they tossed it makes me pretty hopeful for the new album...

Good B side overall - Edge's guitar is too good for this track
chorus repetative, but overall not bad.

Bring on the Bomb!!!!

I really like it. I can understand why it's a B-Side but i really like it.

I agree. I am always keen to hear the B-sides before an album's release. It lets me know what to expect in a way. Not quite as good as Always in some repects, but shines for its rawness and Evil Edge dominance.
