Same here. Intro sort of struck me as Magnificent meets The Miracle. Verse was groovy. The chorus seemed a bit weak to me in comparison, but it was growing on me by the end.

But yeah, a decent tune I thought. We'll see what happens after a couple of more listens over time.

I liked that a lot, like more than I was expecting to.

First thoughts: I like it

Nothing groundbreaking, but it's a good addition to the catalog. I like the verses a lot. I also like that the song ends on a high note.

that was absolutely horrible, and hopefully no indication of what the album will be like.

u2 really need to start acting their age, these bombastic songs they've put out since 2000 are cringey.

Yeah it could've done without so much crowd noise, but I definitely enjoyed that more than I expected.

The only weak bit is the ending (the false one and the real one) where Bono does the "oh oh oh" bit in place of lyrics. It's like he's trying to channel the end of HMTMKMKM but is too old and hoarse.

Overall though? Edge sounds great, the rhythm is strong, no lyrics that leap out immediately as on the level of Boots stupidity - it's not as if there's been much competition but this is, on one listen, the best lead song (single?) since Vertigo.

I don't have the best hearing, but I heard it just fine over headphones I thought.

I'd love to hear this without crowd noise.


First impression:

To me, this song is all about Adam.

Some wonky moments but the chorus is catchy as heck.

I think adding the crowd noise was intentional - anyone thinks this isn't the studio version? Couldn't hear the song that well.

That's definitely not U2 paint by numbers.

I believe big mouth they're speaking of is Trump.

Huge bass, catchy ass chorus.

Need to have a release without the damn crowd noise but I'm digging this a lot. Looks like they learned the lesson of leaving Crystal Ballroom off the last album.

And to think people were hanging shit on me for predictable posts.
