My production complaints hold for this one; very glossy and poppy for what is actually a pretty hefty song, lyrically. And the lyrics do occasionally thud pretty hard here and there, really indulging in sap. But it has a strong chord progression, and the last couple of minutes build up to greatness. A well-written song with some flaws. 7.

Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour want their money back.

Easy 10. Loved this song live, and the album version captures the same emotion, in my opinion. Just amazing. Will always remind me of the 9/11 tragedy, as well as the overused topic of Aung San Suu Kyi.

When I first heard this one, on the album, I was stunned to hear a radio-friendly version of The Unforgettable Fire sound. I thought it was way too retro for U2's own good. I still feel that way sometimes, and the lyric is maybe reaching for sublimity a bit more than the song can deliver, but it's yet another enjoyable U2 anthem, so it's all good.

I love it, does remind me of 9/11 time, but still a great song.

Listening it in some studio headphones provides much more depth than you'd think. All songs generally do, but this one even more.

Again, I get all the criticism, but that still doesn't prevent me from loving it unconditionally. 10.

Really? Not even RTSS on ZooTV?

The ending saves this otherwise poor song.
