Yay or Nay on North Star

What's the consensus on North Star. I kind of like it. Interesting it came from the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sessions. Here's the youtube video from the Turin show.

I think I approve. If recorded, I hope it'll change and be more than an acoustic guitar and vocals (Bono said that the song's not finished). I feel like it has a lot of potential. I'd rather have it than Stuck. I certainly approve of U2 having the courage to play such a song! Also, the lyrics sound nice.

Also, U2.com notes that they played "an acoustic version" of North Star, which implies that there's another version.

It is alright, I am not drooling or going hyper over it. I will have to hear it in its full form to get a feel for it.

Boring, with cliched lyrics.

Sounds like regression, not progression.
