Loved the guitar on this, it doesn't even really sound like the album version or the live version, it sounded like some new loopy thing and I wish they would make a new song out of it but I am sure that's just me. But I loved how U2-ey/Edge-y it sounded. I miss this in their music, I love the effects, I love the loops, it's all classic U2 to me!

Edge's job on vocals is to be a backup singer, which has two parts.
1. Sound like Bono
2. Blend in.

It's not that he has no singing voice; it's that his style is intentionally unobtrusive. Men with much less pleasant and tuneful but more idiosyncratic, reedy tenor voices have done well as lead vocalists (Oh hello, Liam Gallagher). His pitch is strong, and once he relaxes at the end his expression and delivery are good. It's much more accurate to say he sings like a backing vocalist than to say he doesn't sing well.

1. Good guitar-wise.
2. Voice-wise - leave the lead vocal to Bono and stick to backing vocals.

But for anyone to say it's better than anything on SOI is just trying to get a rise or has the most questionable ears on this forum.

Yup, Edge being a better singer is one of the best lulz on the internet fandom.

I just stumbled on this video randomly on YouTube. Very enjoyable to see Edge play RTSS like that, and eat Mario Batali's scallops.
