i recorded, and am listening back now. Gotta say. Great opening, LOVE the bass in before the chorus. Lyrically ok. But they fit and flow well in the song.
Definitely getting the Vertigo references, This thing really does rock.
The bridge is nice as well, and wow, i like that ramp up out of the bridge.
Also think this is one of the best uses of Bono doing an ooooohhh oh oh, ooooh, oh, oh oh.

overall it seems more organic than SOI material, and definitely a step up for me, above Invisible.

ok, finished. I love it, i really do.

I was one that was very non-plussed by Invisible when it came out. It has grown on me a bit. But this one I'm very happy with. So cool. Great tune!!!!

Listening again now. Zoo Station vibe during the intro.

The false ending is definitely a good idea.
"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."

Much more satisfying experience waiting at my desk for this than it was 3 yrs ago when the payoff was The Miracle (Of Tim Cook).

now its time to go grab some lunch.

Yup, that's my thoughts too.

I hope the rawness is on the record. But the song feels a bit messy to me and not just production... that would be fine but the song itself can’t explain it

Entertainment Weekly is interpreting the song as a reaction to terror:

Love it after only one listen. Crowd noise has been put in intentionally so we don't actual have the studio version

This is not the lead single??why??

The kind of groove they achieve from 0:30-1:19 with the pounding drums, thumping bass and low-register Bono voice is phenomenal. Love it.

The first impression over all "I like it" . I really like the intro a lot. As I am on my 4th listen I am finding myself tap my feet and bob my head. I think for me will be a great addition.
