Is it just me or is Crumbs underrated?

I've been listening to the album constantly for the past 5 days now and while I think all the songs are excellent, the one I find myself enjoying most is Crumbs. I was wondering if anyone else feels this way or if its just me, because it seems to get a relatively bad rap on here.

It had bad reputation in those stupid press reviews. It's one of the best songs on the album. And a lot of people think that way on the forum.

still hasn't grown on me, although I think it will be a much better song live.

I love it as well. It completes the album for me. I'd really miss it if it wasn't there.

I love it. Took me several listens to feel that way, but now it's one of my favorites.

Bland? my goodness
Great harmony, great melody, cool lyrics, the guitars sound sweet
pretty bland to me......

Oh well, to each his own. I think it's the best song on a great album.

I love the the verse about the "eating all your friends" and the bit about sister ann and three to a bed. The rest of the song is still growing on me. It seems a bit labored compared to some of the other songs.

it's quite polarised, either your most or least favourite. Best song on the album.

Crumbs is a lovely song, and I'm finding myself listening to it over and over.

In my opinion it is the best song on the album. It just has such a groove to it. Was it originally from the Achtung Baby sessions? I heard that in a few places. When I think of it in that context it makes it seem even better.

An awesome tune, for sure. I can see the comparisons to Walk On , for sure, especially in the solo (which might sound a bit too similar in my opinion). When I heard they recorded it drunk, I wasn't expecting anything nearly this good. It's a gem, though.
