Which new song do you like better?

I haven't decided whether I like ES or Hands better. They're both great songs, imho...Different, certainly, but great! I can't even vote in my own poll yet, but I want to know what the rest of you think!

Right now I've gotta go with Electrical Storm... the version that's gonna be on the B side with Edge's "nah-nah...ni-na-ninanina-nah-nah" guitar part opening (you love how I put guitar into words don'tcha! ). Not crazy over the Orbit mix or the Urlich or the Brian Urlacher or whatever friggin mix they've got out now. Hands I just haven't heard enough yet. As I said in the huge 500 page War and Peace-esque Hands .mp3 thread, I think 75% of Hands is some of the best work U2 has ever done, but the second verse and the operatic sequence Bono does there just tones it down a notch, a little too much overproducing IMHO. But that's just me, I could be wrong.

One more thing that I just noticed... how in the hell do I only have 67 career posts? When'd that get reset??? I gotta pay attention to this stuff more often!

Well I voted based on of course how I feel at this very moment. I only heard "The Hands that Built America" for the first time about 1/2 hr ago.... I chose "Electrical Storm" as my favourite of the two. Thing is... it took me nearly a month to appreciate it and now I can't get enough. Perhaps "The Hands that Built America" will be the same.
Unfortunately, I wish U2 music didn't have to grow on me..........

Well, maybe if you think of it more like growing inside you (in a non-pregnant sort of way!) it's better...


Wait...That made SO much more sense in my head!

I can't vote -- I can't decide. I'm just quite happy with both new songs! "Hands" is beautiful.
