I'd give it a 9.5 out of 10. With the only reason for the .5 deduction being what a pain in the ass it was to get to hear it.

Seriously though, I'm not a big "put a number" on something to rate it kind of guy. I love the song though, sounds fantastic.

Lot of people talking about ATYCLB here, and my opinion of ATYCLB is that it was a fantatstic album laden with too many Adult Contemporary kind of tracks.

Have to consider the `role' of a first release here, and the music world it's being released into. ISHFWILF is my ALL time fave by any artist, but as an opener - and re-introduction to the world at large- this track is awesome, and has sooooo much more going for it than the pretenders to the crown. so, in summary, not there best song ever - but near to their most immediate opener since NYD or PRIDE

For what its supposed to accomplish ie reestablish U2 at the top of the rock game, I give it a 10 - there won't be anything stronger released in 2004 and probably for the better part of 2005 by any other band, I can pretty much bet that.

As a U2 song, and evaluated against the hype I've been reading in reviews, I don't know where to rate it yet. Mind you I like it a HELL of alot better once I heard the cleaned up version.

The power chords are what gets me I think..not much into power chords...I think it was Rolling Stone's review that said something like 'no rapping...expansive melodic Edge guitar' or something along those lines....and well the verse is kinda like that...and Edge isn't doing his classic harmonics thing really except during the solo...and it doesn't stand out as much as I wish it would - remix that solo Edge!!!!

Good voice tho Bono! You still got it in ya huh? Gonna be fun to do live!

Rhythm section- what can I say...as always, tiiiiight, and Adam forms the foundation as usual..

So as a U2 song...for my personal tastes....hmm...and note that I did not immediately fall in love with Elevation...

7 out of 10 - it will likely grow on me as I listen to it and I can bet I'll have a different rating in about...oh...4 hrs...after we play it!!

one thing I´m sure my friends: This song is really good and worth listen, but is cleary not the best U2 song . I´m listening "Running To Stand Still" now and that song is a no-words song, so, so right to my heart, AWESOME !!!

I know every song is matter of taste, but I think other songs like "Bad"; "Pride ( in the name of love )"," I Still haven´t Found...", "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "All I Want Is You", "Running To Stand Still" and many other classics are better
