+1 with fervor.

I actually don't mind it at all. My only gripe at the moment is that The Edge could have used some more effects on his guitar. It sounds too bland, especially at the opening of the song.

I just downloaded it on iTunes and will listen to it all day.

I hope my first impression is changed and in all fairness, I didn't care for Beautiful Day when I first heard it and now I love it....so we shall see.

See, I never heard the beach clip. So maybe I lucked out there!

Remember when people used to go on about how amazing songs where on first listen and get shot down? It's mad to think some perils are going hard on this song about how crap it is, yet that is perfectly reasonable

I think about the Usenet discussions about The Fly being the worst thing ever, and the end of U2. I will wait before I move to defcon-4. I love Little Things, and really like Blackout.

Someone needs to get the Kygo mix out there. Now.

I'm in the minority here but I like this a lot more than Blackout.
