Hey, I genuinely have felt at times that it's the best track on ATYCLB. It's not U2's greatest track, but it's not like the thread was saying All Because Of You or Boots or something was their greatest track.

The live version of Kite from Australia, minus that weird Cate Blanchett shout out, is absolutely phenomenal, in my opinion.

It's still ludicrous. The song has passion and a nice lyric, but musically it's really not interesting in the slightest. Even One, which is the tamest song on AB, has a lot more going on in that department.

I didn't want to be a prick about it - this time - but I wouldn't even put Kite in the top 100 U2 songs, let alone best on ATYCLB (I'll take New York, Beautiful Day or even In A Little While any day).

I'll take Kite over most of ATYCLB, but given the only great song from that era is The Ground Beneath Her Feet, that's not saying much.

The fifth leg Vertigo Tour versions are up there with the band's best ever moments.

I like Kite a lot. Wish it had a stronger ending though.

I love "Kite".

I agree with martha that "New York" is bleh, though.

New York has some bite to it, and it's one of the few songs from that period that do. I've always had a certain amount of time for it, although it's not lost on me that both it and In A Little While make everyone else's most-hated lists. It is what it is...

I think the studio version of IALW is phenomenal; it's a shame that being overplayed live has led to an overall distaste for the song.

New York isn't as raw as it should be, and really improved in the live format. It's also weak for its showstopping place as the penultimate track. When I Look At The World should have more power to it as well, but fits much better in that spot as it did in the original pre-release track order.
