Rate the Song: Near the Island

Today, we finally begin the very last round of the 90s, with the last six 90s non-album songs (all of which are only quasi-90s songs, coming from the Achtung Baby remaster). The full list of 90s non-album songs is:

Alex Descends into Hell for a Bottle of Milk/Korova 1
Lady with the Spinning Head
Where Did It All Go Wrong?
Slow Dancing
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Viva Davidoff
Holy Joe
North and South of the River
I'm Not Your Baby
Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad
Sweetest Thing (new version)
Blow Your House Down
Heaven And Hell
Oh Berlin
Near The Island
Down All The Days
Everybody Loves A Winner

This round will feature Blow Your House Down through Everybody Loves A Winner.

Please rate Near the Island on a scale from 0 to 10, using whatever criteria you feel allows you to best evaluate the song as a whole. I will not set criteria for people to based on, but if you feel like your best evaluation of the merits of a song comes from voting only based on, say, the studio version, go right ahead and vote that way. Full information on the Rate The Song series may be found in this thread.

Have fun! This poll will close in 96 hours.

wish they'd used it at some point...would have fit well on Passengers or even been a good addition to any Achtung Baby single

This seriously is muzak. Honestly, you could buy a thousand CDs that sound just like this....don't give songs points just because it says U2 on it!
