Yup. This is really bad. The end of each chorus just peters out.
After 3 minutes, it's a different song entirely.

A copy and pasted mess of a song(s).

It's up on iTunes now, but you have to type the song title into the search panel.

Oh god the usual suspects are out in force I see just had a quick listen, not as good as the blackout but no where nearly as bad as people are going on about

The Kygo version was catchy and that live snippet. This sounds like a mess.

This song embodies all of the indecision they've been displaying since at least 2009, their desire to be everything to everyone. Ugh.

I am one of their biggest apologists - they killed a decent song.

You're probably right.
But it IS catchy.
Agree with most of your points though.

I think they should have stayed in the vein of that opening verse

The production is saccharine garbage. At least the Kygo cut was straight up techno/dance. I also missed the groove/Nile Rogers guitar during the chorus on this one. I need to listen more but didn't love it at first glance. Also agree with Ax- sounds like 3 songs in one, similar to Boots.

Sounds most reminiscent of the Spider-Man soundtrack.

Edge;s riff at the beginning of the 'solo' bit used to underlay the chorus, and it sounded so much better.

Song sucks. A complete and utter mess.

Need a few more listens, but I personally think it flows better than the beach clip from last year

Upon second listen I love it. It sounds great through headphones and not shitty computer speakers.
Some notes....

Adam's overdriven bass in the verses sounds awesome
The transition from first chorus back to verse is jarring and bizarre.
Love how the second half of the chorus explodes
Is that really Bono singing the "I can see you love her" bridge part? Sounds a bit like Edge.
So far Adam is killing it on this record.
