Having listened to the song a couple of times, I think we need a thread like this.

Just hits Good because of the lyrics, Bono's vocals, and drums. The guitar and melody aren't hitting me right.

It's got that Coldplay sound which so lacks creativity on U2's part.

Average. I'm really disappointed, unfortunately.

No it has that sound coming through A LOT which I associate with Coldplay, which U2 hadn't used before CP.

That sounds harsh.  Do you really think the song per se is rubbish, or is your response due to having - perfectly understandable - high expectations of the new U2 sound and they have disappointed you?

I voted "good" because while I really liked it (especially the bass line), it felt like it was building up to something and didn't quite get there. I'm imagining a longer edit that might be a little more dramatic. For me it just did the old T.S. Eliot ending of not with a bang but a whimper. I'm not too concerned though because this is easily rectified in live settings.  :)
