deathbear just pointed the obvious out to me, that my frustration with the guitars not being pronounced enough may have mostly to do with the shitty quality of this mp3, still, it's not The Fly but it's not Wild Honey or Grace either

send lawyers, guns and money...

I was hoping they'd do some AB-style rock to, but this is a good song. We'll just have to wait for the next proper studio album for some rockn' tunes!

I've listened to it a couple of more times now. Ooh, it's *pretty*!! Bono sounds fantastic, love Edge's guitar work. It sounds like another great song!!!!

Bono sounds better than on any song off the last album too!

Electrical Storm is spectacular!
Lightning in a bottle...
A song only U2 could create.

I listened to it over and over this morning, trying to pick out all the subtle sounds being played out in the really is a gorgeous song that is in the vain of all great U2 songs...and Bono's vocals are quite extraordinary in their delivery...I'm not going to put any expectations on it, but simply enjoy this new U2...I love Electrical Storm.

"The truth is when that singer is saying something that comes from right down within him, and it affects you right down within you. That's when you start talking about great music, as distinct from nice music." -- Bono

Well, it starts off like a good song but nothing really really special, and then it just gets better and better and better and better...I actually got chills and found myself saying "Oh my God" when he sang "Electrical stooorm..."--I was that moved. REALLY good sign! I'm quite excited about this song. Have to see how it holds up, of course. I agree with the person who said it sounded like JT/AB/ATYCLB. A bit of Exit with the crashing drums, the harsher guitar is more AB, and the very beginning (admittedly the weakest part) almost sounded like Stuck! (which I like a lot, by the way.) But it all works...

have heard it only once, and quite liked it, and its not going to take me long to love it, I can tell. Edge was great and Bono's voice stunned me with its brilliance, just extraordinary! - better than in ATYCLB.

Three listens so far... the band sounds tight, and I had no idea Bono could still sing like that!

The lyrics are bothering me... a few too many "U2isms" as put it. Not as bad in this regard as "Always," but I was hoping for poetry more along the lines of JT or AB.

Oh well, good song at any rate.

Re: I love it

I'm not gay but when Bono sings the bolded lyrics below:

Let's see colours that have never been seen
Lets go to places no one else has been

I want to make love to him.

Wow I love this song. I can't wait to hear a cd version of it, my only complaint, which shouldn't be a complaint, is that the mp3 sounds thin, I want to hear the full sound of the cd version, so I can get a sense of every instrument. I want more bass! But none the less, it was pretty cool waking up this morning and getting an email saying there was a new U2 song. I love the very end of the song, it ends just like The Fly. Man, this is great.

Bono's voice sounds very rested, he just sounds amazing, especially towards the end of the song.
I loooove the guitar sounds.

I definitely did not expect an mp3 this early!

Funny thing is, I woke up with the worst hangover. But finding this song seemed to cure me.

I really like the song. I hope Electrical Storm is the start of a new direction for U2.

Thanks to the people who found the mp3 for us!

Yowza - I ADORE this song!!!!!!!
I haven't been following the hype here so had no expectations at all!!!
What a lovely, lovely surprise!!!

I was so scared it would sound like the song that accompanied their last Greatest Hits package (Sweetest Thing, d-uh!).....

And I agree with everyone else - it sounds better and better each time!!!

Woohoo - way to go U2!!!!!!

I'm listening to it for the 3rd time now. Definitely getting better with each listen. It has elements of Summer Rain & TGBHF to my ears. Edge's guitar has a Babyface sound at times during the song. I also find the bells intresting....glockenspiel?...I don't know for sure, but they are similiar to the bells at the beginning of I Will Follow. Cool solo & fallsetto by Bono. I'm going to listen again in a few...Lyrically I see elements of UF & AB and a bit of deceptive simplicity like in BD.
