Pretty good song, my opinion, taking elements from An Cat Dubh, Babyface, and Electrical Storm. But does sound like a song you can play for your child before bedtime. 7/10 for me.

Here's the Krautrock effect again. And yet poor Invisible was left orphaned.

I'm imagining this would be a great set closer.

Really cool track. Dreamy but dark. It's not a typical U2 track, which I like.

Great tune. Best intro of past 4 albums worth of songs.

Sexy, groove-heavy goodness.

Love the outro...

I want to preface this by saying I love Sleep Like a Baby tonight, awesome tune, but the intro always makes me a giggle because it reminds me of this:


Anyway, carry on.

Reminds me of If You Wear a Velvet Dress but with more texture.

My favorite song on the album, also, IMO, best lyrics. Love the feeling of this song even though I don't really know what it's about. Also, I cringed when I first read the title, it doesn't do the song justice at all.
