What do you all think about Stateless?

The Ground Beneath her Feet thread made me think of Stateless. What do you all think about Stateless?

I remember when it first came out, I was pretty disappointed with it. I didnt like it much at all, I thought it was really mediocre.

I dont know what happened, but I think it's great now. I really like the trance/triphop feel the music has in this song. I really like the production on Stateless and Ground Beneath Her Feet, they kinda have a sound that no other U2 songs have.

Anyone else think that the guitar riff in Stateless kinda sounds like Talk Show Host by Radiohead? Maybe that's why I like it, cause I love that song too.

Anyways, your opinions please.

I think I remember liking it from the first time I heard it. I got the whole "atmospheric" vibe that was so big in Ground Beneath Her Feet. I don't know...I can't think of anything else to say about it at the moment, but I do love it! (and Falling at Your Feet and Never Let Me Go too, while we're talking about MDH songs!).

I don't know why, but it took me such a long time to hear the other songs on the MDH soundtrack. I really like Stateless.. like you said, it's very different and unique for U2. It and Falling At Your Feet are really good. Really, all songs U2 did for the MDH soundtrack were excellent, and Dancing Shoes.. I never hear anyone talk about it -- great song, too. Short, but good.

Ah, I got a bit sidetracked.

I'm quite a big fan of Stateless. The lyrics and singing are sexy and smooth, and the end of the song is driving. Good stuff. I like all of the U2/Bono songs on the MDH soundtrack. Each one has its own mood, but they've all got something redeeming about them.

My favorite song on the soundtrack, tied with Falling at your feet.

IMO better than the more known Ground beneath her feet.

It's kind of a neat song...the music is...mysterious, sorta.

I'm liking it...the ending in particular is really cool.

great opening lines:

"I've got no home in this world
Just gravity
luck and time
I've got no hope in this world
Just you
And you are not mine."

I was dissapointed in ATYCLB because it did not sound like "stateless" at all. I love atmosphere.

It's so rare that U2 fan says they dont like a U2 song, it's it? Sometimes I dont even know why I ask what people think of U2 songs/albums or whatever. Everyone is just going to say that they love it.

I cant really talk though, about the only U2 song I really dont like is Big Girl's are Best. I dont necessarily hate it, I just think it's really at the bottom of my list.

Wait a minute....I beg to differ. Let me think long and hard. If you ask any U2 fan to be honest and list which U2 songs they don't like, I'm sure they'll come up with something. For example, I don't care too much for "The Wanderer", featuring Johnny Cash. And I especially could care less for "Stuck in a Moment". I hope they never sing that song again. There, I was honest.

Right on Wowy23, thanks for being honest. It's good to hear people who actually dare tell their true feellings!

I think Stateless is great. I think it's even better when you place it next to some of the other songs U2 put out in 2000, like Wild Honey, Kite, Stuck, Elevation, In A Little While. All great songs, but all completely different in tone and presentation.
