I love Lights of Home...but does it bother anyone else that a good portion of the guitar work is from a Haim song?

Never got Reach’s appeal. But glad so many of you love it.
Pretty much the same here. I think Reach is a sneakily good song, and it grew on me after not liking it much at first. I give it a solid 7.0. Red Flag Day is at a 9.0 and climbing. Great song that will translate really well in concert.

I think they’re both a solid 7.5

Nope; it doesn't bother me. I consider music to be art, and I don't always expect an artist to make their all of their own components - I just expect them to turn a blank canvas into something beautiful.

i guess you guys are more, like, devoted to U2 than I am, because I'm not into this album. it's just......not something I've wanted from U2.

I can see the argument for the piano being boring. I just liked how the sort of tacky electric piano sound, along with Bono's crooning, kinda sounded like a Holiday Inn band from hell. It suited the song. Certainly the song needs the extra guitar and synths, though.

I don't really think that it's about devotion... It's rough that you're not loving the new album, though. What were you wanting from the boys?

On first listen now - kept stumbling into the lousy rip (the 63MB copy where it sound like someone was recording off a mic pointed at their computer speakers) all day and told myself I wouldn't listen through till I found a good one.. then I found the good one with the bonus tracks.

First opinion - this is an album I'm not going to have to work hard to like - I tried so hard with SOI, and even seeing the songs live, it just never clicked - I got into U2 around Passengers-era - so I've been through 6 album releases, and SOI was and is really the only album of theirs I really don't care to listen to. SOE is restoring a lot of faith I had lost.

The variety of sounds and styles covered on SOE is amazing - and the production has depth and layers to it - something SOI was lacking.

Can't wait to get a CD copy next weekend.

Odd to see people dragging SOI while praising SOE. I find them to be about on par. But I guess the last album always comes under fire when a new one comes out.

The call back to Iris here... It struck me on the last listen. It's a song about Bono almost dying, and it calls back to a song about Bono's mom dying, but in a more joyous tone with the she lyric.

Just subtle touch that the average Joe won't pick up on, but it fucking floored me when i realized it.
Strings all the way for me!

I'm obsessed with Summer of Love. That Edge guitar.

I'm finally listening properly to "Book Of Your Heart". It's unique!

Those who were saying it sounds like a Joshua Tree era B-side are spot on.
