I remember thinking that BD wouldn't be a hit, and I took great pleasure in being proved wrong over the next year. Hopefully that's how this song will be. The production is awful.

It’s a shame because they chase this hit.... but know one will pay attention and then the fans suffer haha I want something that sounds like U2 not copy paste generic sound. Like if it didn’t sound like U2 because it was a new sound or something that’s cool

It was kinda like the live version we heard a few days back. Solid drum and bass groove.

Love it if you do, and be proud of it. Stop caring so much whether other people do or don't.

The Kygo mix is still fucking awful. I guarantee you that the 20 year old who decide what's popular would laugh the Kygo mix off the radio. It's so bad guys.

The first 53 seconds of the song music wise and tempo wise are pretty good as it teases something bigger and better and then the god awful chorus kicks in.

I can get into the verses but the chorus is fucking horrid and The Edge's cliche wimpy guitar chimes ala I'll Go Crazy absolutely suck and make it sound like he's just parodying himself.

I even like the little transition from 2:46 - 3:02 but from 3:03 on to the end it's just awful.

Honestly, first impression is not good. They over cooked the hell out of it.

Should have just taken the Kygo mix, made the transitions a little smoother, and you have a fun, dancy, catchy hit. It would have fit in with modern tastes and gotten good buzz towards the rest of the album.

I will say it's interesting to hear a few different versions of this song all in the same mix... but it's still shite.

It's a "This Is" (Aslan) - "Ordinary Love" mix up.

Nothing more.
Nothing less.
