Well, I have only heard full studio versions of 4 of the songs, but I have heard a minute or more of all the others and here is what I think track by track:

Vertigo - 3/5
Miracle Drug - 5/5
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own - 4.5/5
Love And Peace Or Else - 4.5/5
City Of Blinding Lights - 4.5/5
All Because Of You - 4/5
A Man And A Woman - 3/5
Crumbs From Your Table - 5/5
One Step Closer - 3/5

Yaweh - 4/5

I would give the album at first listen 4.5 out of 5. Please post your thoughts here!

Does the second half sag like ATYCLB's or it is strong? Does Yahweh sound like Streets/Pride like the Uncut review said?

Check out this little review page I made, so we can have a central place for all full-length user reviews - http://66.54.81.30/htdaab/

It's nothing special, but I thought it might help

No, I'm just being silly about the A++. This grading is not part of the American tradition (and i'm not American).

City Of Blinding Lights - 5/5
All Because Of You - 5/5

Crumbs From Your Table - 3/5
One Step Closer - 2/5
Original Of The Species - 5/5 - It might be my favourite of the album!
Yahweh - 3/5

Well, my thoughts? It might be because it's new, but I've never smiled and cheered like this. I think it's better than Pop, which means it's amongst the 3 best albums they've made in my opinion - if it's better than Rattle and Hum - I'm not sure yet - but it's amazing, and All Because of You is so RAW!

I take my review back, every song is amazing and and a 10, maybe I'll give OSC a 8/10, and Yahweh a 8.5, but everything else is incredible. AMAAW is so soulful.

the whole album is strong... i'd say besides vertigo, all the rocking parts are a new style for u2: sort of a classic rock base with unforgettable fire guitar over it at times and achtung guitar at times. the slower parts are a lot like unforgettable fire with the guitar and strings with an added piano and acoustic guitar component.

when the reviewers said the second half of the album was "slower," i was worried that it was going to be REALLY slow. but there is a certain energy that begins with vertigo and runs all the way through to yahweh. there are no points on the album where the energy lags...there's something there within every song that keeps your heart beating quickly.
