My snap first impression is I love it. It's got grit and gloss. The rhythm section lays down a fantastic groove. As my friend Maddy said it's like if Achtung Baby and Atomic Bomb eras had a baby.

I'll need to listen more for actual lyrics, but nothing bad sticks out on first listen.

How is this not a single? It's really good. Probably the best first play since Vertigo. Thumpy!

Begrudgingly liked it.

Didn't know it was going to be "live".

Single is coming out the day before my birthday, though

Listening back I really wish Invisible had this kind of production and less of the washy synth bass + drumpads. It's so aggressive and full sounding.

Muse/The Killers hybrid...that's a good thing.

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.
Nice to hear your thoughts. I totally agree. I love TCB, and they took the groove of a song like that and just killed it with the bass, and guitar definitely was much more raw than we have heard in a long time. Listen to 1:40 to 1:55, and hear that squacking scratching Edge guitar in there. Not something we got on SOI.

The verse and bridge i think is where this song shines.
Also the intro and coming out of the bridge to final chorus is brilliant.

So happy Bono gives the verses some breathing room. Bass & guitar sound great and that intro will throw arenas/stadiums in a frenzy!
