Yes its like a 9 meg zip file. unzip to luncompress the mp3. It's encoded at 256 kbps, so its very good quality.

Initial thoughts....fresh sounding, beautiful, interesting (the song veers musically quite a bit throughout) I really liked one part where there was some choice vocal distortion Must listen more for further analysis

Beautiful atmospheric piano intro, song progresses into verse with several tempo changes, then into the chorus that were all familiar with from the u2.com video clip. Tempo changes in verses sound a little unnatural; a little cut and paste. Weird opera like wail in the middle bridge of the song. Is that Bono? Song ends very quietly, unlike to grand build up electrical storm. Organs, piano, guitar, light violins, and subtle synthesizers beeps & noise make up the instrumentation of the song.

Overall I would say this song is an average U2 song, but should work well in the context of the movie. I liked TGBHF better, but that may change after more listens. I think some fans will dislike this song though
