Love & Peace Or Else

Nothing really to say here...I just saw everyone else starting posts with song titles...thought I'd conform and do the same...

this song amazes me

It has a certain something that i can't explain but that has been missing from u2 music for the past 10 years

It has almost the vibe of 'Silver and Gold' in places (only more bluesy), especially the guitar at the end. "ok edge...play the blues..."

When everyone starts bitching how HTDAAB in not groundbreaking or innovative, point them to this song. U2 have NEVER sounded like this before. It's as much a musical expirement as Mofo or Lemon.

I just got into Led a little while back, they are definetly one amazing band. Jimmy Page is such a phenomanal guitar player. Anyway, L&P is a really good tune because of the guitar play here, a little Page-like. Very bluesy, its really sounds great.

But out of the 5 songs/samples we've heard, I would rate this one the lowest, just because the lyrics are too in-your face political for me, I like the whole "lay down your guns" thing, but at the end when he' saying "where is the love?" that's a little too far for me. But this is really good news, because I still listen to this clip like once a day and love it!!! So considering its my least favorite of the new tunes, thats a good sign for the new record.

Even from that shitty clip it sounds fabulous for me. Big fan of Led Zeppelin. A very dark tune. Mullen's drums haven't sounded this good since Acrobat and Edge's solo is breathtaking.

It'll be a classic...I love the guitars, the imploring vocals..this more than anything else that has leaked sounds "atomic"..really gloomy, apocalyptic and badass

I have a feeling that my copy of the disc is going to wear out pretty quick right around the beginning of this song to the end of the next one (COBL).

it's not going to sound like Led Zeppelin. C'mon, people - use your head. It's going to sound like U2.

Have you heard the rough clip? Edge's riff does sound like Zeppelin.

Sounds as much like Zeppelin as U2 ever have. It's the bass riff more than anything, less so Edge. The bass riff sounds like 'How Many More Times' or other bluesy Zepp tunes. The guitar is pure Edge. And the clip isn't really that great, but the song has promise.

It could be the best blues rock song U2 have ever done and their would still be people bitching about it, that's the way it goes with fans.

You may be right, maybe it is the bass I am thinking of. Hard for me to tell with the shitty clip and I only let myself listen to it once. Sounds very blues rock though. And I am one fan that is happy with that.

I've heard the rough clip several times. It didn't move me that much, and I am what I'd call a casual Zeppelin fan - enough to hear it if it were there.
