This.

We need time to let it soak a bit before we go full hate on it. Hell, I've only listened to it 1x and by the end of the day I will likely hit 50x (no joke).

I loved SOI, I really like The Blackout (bee to hear the studio cut before I say I "love it"), Little Things sounds cool but TBT just didn't sit well with me for some reason.

All these old people think who think Kygo is some sort of God-tier DJ want his shitty try-hard mix.

To be fair, I have no idea who he is, but his remix has a structure, emphasises the hooks, and isn't cluttered. Three things it has over this version.

This is one where Bono and Edge can go ahead and release a simple acoustic version. It would be far better.

I thought today would've started out better...




edit: not that I think it's terrible, but certainly feeling a little let down (then again, I felt that way about "The Miracle" initially as well... but then again, I still feel that way about "The Miracle").

First "Twin Peaks," and now this...

I’m meh on that as well in some way. But it’s way better than this version.

I actually find the kygo version to be a lot more "plodding" than this

u2 from the Unforgettable Fire era would be ashamed of today's u2. You are pushing 60 guys, forget about chasing the hits and just try to make great music.

Very well said. Captures my feelings perfectly.

I had no idea who Kygo was either until that came out but his version/mix is infinitely better than this piece of shit.

Yeah sorry guys that this isn't the song that's going to make U2 cool to the young people. Just enjoy it for what it is, which is actually quite enjoyable.
