It's odd they didn't do a single mix that either finished the Kendrick verse or cut it out completely.

I like it based on my first listen. Wasn't expecting to hear Kendrick on there. Very interesting. I would guess that American Soul is next on the tracklist.

Also, The Blackout is finally on Spotify! I haven't listened to it in full since it was first released. It's very good. I think it's my favorite of the songs they've released from SoE.

Also, assuming it wasn't confirmed already, that picture they showed during the concert awhile back is 100% without a doubt the album cover. It's the picture for both GOOYOW and The Blackout on Spotify.

This. Great to hear some ambience back in a U2 song as well.

I only listened twice but the lyrics are really solid (Lincoln’s ghost doesn’t bug me).

The song is catchy and not nearly as “poppy” as TBT (not a bad or good thing, just different). I LOVE the backing vocals during the chorus. Song is a solid effort but too soon for me to rate it.

For now....I like his vocals delivery, like the lyrics, like the chorus. It’s a good tune.

Very catchy. Lead single they've been looking for the past 3 albums...

Ironically, I think U2 got in their own way on this one.

The song is catchy and memorable, but I'm not in love with it. It is ok, but it just sounds underwhelming for some reason.

But on a whole, not a bad song at all, but my hopes were higher for this one.

The outro with the Kendrick preacher I absolutely hate. It ruins it for me. And the effect on the word "superstars" is absolutely cringe. And it is really stupid and lazy how it just cuts off ON THE SINGLE VERSION. Yes I know it leads into another song, but they should have amended it for the single version. If it was up to me, I'd just get rid of the whole preaching thing altogether for the single version, and have it as just something exclusive to the album version.

4. It's going to go viral on Youtube/Last.fm, etc.
5. It's their best single since (insert BD/Vertigo).
HA I thought a few of things...!!!!

Why the hell have U2 re-released another mix of Beautiful Day?

I don't think what we're hearing is a single version, but just the regular album version. Not sure if there is/will be a single version.

Very mediocre in my opnion. The only of the new songs i like is TLTTGYA. Based on the other songs SOE will rival October and NLOTH as my least favorite U2 albums.

The Blackout and American Soul are much better songs than this.

One listen and I like it less than most of my least favorite U2 songs.

This song will frequently be getting out of my own way, as I'll be hitting skip on the CD player nearly every time it's about to come on.

there is a hook in this song which makes it less cringe than the title suggests it's going to be. absolutely no idea why the rapping pops up at the end. is it supposed to be clever?

a lot of you sound as offended about this song as i am about american soul. "american soul" has to be the most post-2000 U2 song title imaginable, and it's every bit as terrible as the name suggests.

get out of your own way at least doesn't insult me, but it doesn't really draw me in either.
