  2. Honestly? Can't remember the last time I liked a new U2 song as much as that

    Yeah, this is very good. No gimmicks or terrible lyrics - just straight-up good U2.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Sonys like a solid U2 song, I dig. Haven't gotten into a lot of their newer stuff but this sounds promising.

    Really digging this. It hit me right out of the gates much harder than Miracle did, likely due to the great groove in the verses, interesting pre-chorus, and a sweet build in the bridge that really brings in the last chorus. Also really like the live-ish sounding mix, sans the baked in crowd noise. Overall there is a "feeling" to the song that sounds more like 90's U2 than a lot of what's been done in the 00's, which is something I wholeheartedly approve of.

    Can't wait to hear this one live, will be a banger.

    Sounds like a Switchfoot jam.

    Oh snap this is actually really good. For sure better than just about anything on the last album.
