Yahweh rules. Should become a single. I love the ending, probably the best one in an U2 album.

Really hoping to hear it live at some point.

i couldn't have said it better. yahweh is FANTASTIC! my favorite track on the new album, and my favorite U2 track in over a decade.

"take this heart and make it break"-- you broke mine with this song, bono.

Yahweh's my favourite on the album... It has a great instrumental... Very hard to separate in its discernition... The lyric is good too... The entire song takes us back to the Joshua Tree era with that guitar riffs... I don't understand why it sucks...! Is the lyric too "God-devoted"? On the other hand, I like the bluesy tune of A Man And A Woman but the intention with that lyric and the instrumental was to touch the female's heart, which I find very cool...

I'm coming round to OOTS though
I love A Man And A Woman, it took root in my head the first time I heard it and will not budge. I also think Yahweh is incredibly moving.

I agree with your thoughts on Yahweh, it's a brave, well crafted beautiful song.

Not so sure about AMAAW. So does that make me only a "so called U2 fan"? You sound like the type, that if you got into government you'd become a despot dictator, executing anyone who didn't believe in your ideas!

Every U2 fan has their different tastes... I don't necessaraly think it has to do with wanting another "One, "WOWY", etc. But if it sounds good or bad to somebody, that's all that matters.

For me, these people are boring winers who only like their U2 songs to be like: One (part 2), With or Without you (part 6), Beautiful Day (part 19) Streets (part 475)!
Man, it's 2005!!

Who are you to say this? I respect your opinion on Yaweh, but what gives you the right bash people who doesn't like it?

For me, Yaweh doesn't give me anything, I think its really boring and uninspiring and I know that its 2005...

So stop fucking around and call us who doesn't like Yaweh 'so called fans'!

I happen to be a big fan of all of them. But since this thread was started b/c of Yahweh, I'll comment specifically on it. I think there are some great couplets in this song, and the last verse is especially moving. It shows humility in a way we haven't seen in quite a while from Bono. Humility (humbleness) is not practiced enough in general. So it's refreshing to hear a song that expresses it so well.

I love Yahweh - it is pure joy. Loud in the car, the bit that I have to play back is when the guitar comes in after the 'your love is like a drop in the ocean' section... there is so much restraint, then Edge Larry and Adam break in and it feels like a skyward moment; as if the roof blew off the studio and the sun came out. We all have firework moments in songs and Yahweh, for me, is full of 'em!

It will never be a big hit just because of its name
