Right now it's Boots...but maybe because it is new...I love them both....

The Edge ends both songs the same way!! :D

Boots because of the unexpected turns - especially the "let me in the sound" part - Larry's drums is =  :o :o :o

And the riff completely destroys Vertigo

With Vertigo they took zero risk, it was an almost definite hit, nothing risky about it at all. Strong chorus, instantly recognisable as U2. This is different, this is the opposite of Vertigo, theres a few different things going on in there. It's comparable to releasing Fast Cars as a single from Bomb.

They are stretching themselves once again, that's exciting in itself, as it's been a while since they did this.
Can't wait for the album.

Boots.

Vertigo was good but to simple. The rift in boots is better Funner and is alot catchier. While boots is harder to listen to, The Music behind it, I feel, stronger.

Can't make a fair comparison at the moment.

Hmm, so far I'd say "Vertigo" is a better song but "Boots" is a richer experiment.  Clear as mud for ya?

Y'all are just excited because it's the new single, man. Come to your senses. Boots is the new kid on the block & Vertigo is now the wise old man who lives on the corner. Sure, the new kid gets all your attention for awhile & seems more fun.. but don't disrespect your elders.  ;)

I agree with that actually. Vertigo has a bit more substance for me, but GOYB has more variation and ambition.

I would have to say Vertigo because it's instantly a powerhouse song, full of energy and power. But i love ...Boots too.

I think they are both excellent rockers with killer riffs.....I'm trying not to be biased just because Boots is fresh in my ears. I'll be able to make a fair comparision after a few months once I've had time to get tired of Boots.
