I liked the simplicity of North Star when I heard it live, even the lyrics. It has always sounded very unfinished to me, with raw lyrics and basic arrangement. I haven't heard the Transformer version, I know it was discussed here, but I hope whatever they decide to do with this song doesn't result in overproduction. Sometimes simple songs are U2's strength, like The First Time, which is one of those underrated songs.

Which one is the one from the movie? Transformers, maybe?

It was all so unmemorable. I hope they all got the axe.
I was under the impression U2 weren't all that excited about it either.
They kick-started the Danger Mouse thing after all that music had been aired.

Kings Of Leon recently announced their Sept release. Pearl Jam announced their October release today. U2 announce November release next month?

I agree with this. I think nothing that we've ever heard has been good enough for inclusion on the next album. I'm hoping it's all new, never been played before stuff.

It has redeeming qualities in the way that cowshit can be repurposed as fertilizer to help other plants grow.

My bet is for November As well...

They said earlier this year (or it was the year before?) that U2, Arcade Fire and Metallica confirmed 2013 releases. Well, seems that AF will release the new album in early September, so I guess U2 won't. I don't know about Metallica, but with a Pearl Jam release in October, I guess that U2 will release in November

Every Breaking Wave has very nice melody in the verses, but completely loses it at the chorus. Now take a full band and your U2 studio magic and I think I could like it more. But "I don't know if I'm that strong" isn't really a good hook for such a stripped down performance

The songs don't need to be "lots of hits" but more just a lil adventurous and away from the formula of the last few albums (ie vertigo )

I've seen One used to refer to all sorts of difficult relationships between people who love each other, but I've never heard Bono give a that as a straightforward explanation of what the song was about. Do you have a source I could check out?

Did Vertigo really represent that much of the formula for the past two albums though? Except for maybe GOYB and some of the guitar tones on HTDAAB, I don't really see it all that much...

I agree, but EBW is the only song from the 360 songs that actually has a studio version and had already been considered to be on an album. So it will/would be interesting to see if they did indeed rework the song. I like it a lot, but it seems like the song really needs a (new) chorus. I love the guitar and the verses.

I'm sure North Star has seen a lot of consideration.

I hope both North Star and Every Breaking Wave have been thrown in the garbage can and never see any daylight again.
