First impression, chorus plods a bit. It really needs edges riff that is highlighted in the Kygo mix

I like the start, the mix is less polished and a bit more raw than we heard on SOI. Just as I think it is on the Blackout which is encouraging.

Wow, very raw and 'live' sounding.

Sounds a bit cobbled together.

The little instrumental part of the bridge was interesting. Otherwise it was pretty much as expected based on the Kygo remix and leaked rehearsal footage.

I miss a better transition to and from the chorus but it's less poppy than I was expecting so... I'm happy

I'm streaming from my phone and it didn't work. I missed it. Anyone know where I can hear it?

Cheers

Quite a lot to decipher, needs more listens.

I expect it'll get some hate here, and it's not the type of song that made me fall in love with U2, but it's not bad. We knew, from Kygo, it was all about the melody hooks and the groove. And those are pretty strong.
I like the mix in the verses.
Adam may well be the star of this album.
