"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I love it when Bono sings "I can feeeeeel". IT sounds like he's 20 years old again. This song is gonna be so good live. When he sings "Hello, Hello" the place will be in a uproar.

Right now it's an 8.5 out of 10 on my U2 scale, trying to put aside my excitement of spankin'-new U2 and being a little more objective. Was an 8 last night, but it's growing! Point off for there being a couple too many Yeahs at the end. I'd put it at a 9.5 on the first-single scale though!

8 out of 10. Woulda been a 10 if Edge had inserted a killer Fly-intensity guitar solo (may still be there on the album version...hope so).

All the "Hello, hellos" is very Teen Spirit (though more uplifting). All the "yeah yeah yeah yeahs" is very Lithium.

And lookit...those indie snobs at Pitchforkmedia.com like it very very much (3.5 stars out of 5):

"U2: "Vertigo"
One, two, three, fourteen-- and they're off! U2 have returned from the calculated "comeback" of 2000's All That You Can't Leave Behind with "Vertigo", a surprisingly uncalculated single that may not constitute a return to form, exactly, but recaptures much of the boundless energy that has characterized their best work-- minus Bono's heavy affectation and the band's traditionally stadium-oriented sound. The song sounds delightfully tossed off, from its silly Spanish count-off to the effervescent post-punk of its verses, replete with affably shallow lyrical imagery ("Those bullets rip the sky of ink with gold/ They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll").

"The band sporadically adds a few grandiose flourishes: The Edge manages to drench the song's bridge in his trademark anthemic guitar stabs, and Bono momentarily stops preening and resumes brooding, belting out the song's climactic line ("I can feeeeel!") in heartfelt, self-glorifying agony. But for the most part, U2 avoids layered sonic grandeur, instead using an animated bassline and bouncing pop beat as an anchor through most of the song. The band members really seem to be enjoying themselves here, which, given the plethora of political and social causes available for some good old-fashioned heart-on-sleeve wall-of-sound monster rock championing, is actually kind of refreshing. Enjoy it while you can-- someone's bound to tell Bono there's a war on. [David Moore; September 24th, 2004]"

6/10, just try comparing "Vertigo" to other U2 songs. Almost everytime the other song is better than "Vertigo". All songs on ABaby are better than "Vertigo". This isn't U2's best at all, it was the quality of a B-side.
Opinions are respected, but I can't agree with your assessment. I can think of quite a few songs that are far worse, IMO, than "Vertigo" on AB - and I really like AB!

I give it anywhere from a 7.5-8.5/10. I think it needs more time to grow on me and see if it lasts with time. The first few times I heard "One" and "Beautiful Day" I didn't like them! So I need time before I can decide if a song is really for me or not. Right now, I think this falls in below "The Fly" but around that of "Numb".

after approx. 30 listenings: 8,5/10
VERTIGO has grown on me over the last few days...best part is ...I can feel You're teaching me and the 'compressor' sounding guitar of the last 30sec. they did a similar thing at the last 30 sec of Beautiful Day when they speeding up the tempo and the volume.

Vertigo gets 9 out of 10. This is, in my opinion, their strongest first single since The Fly.
The spanish lyrics are simply great. Imagine this song played live in Spain and South America, it will be amazing.
