Honestly don't have a strong sense of what I think U2 ought to be doing. But on first few listens, I like what they've done. In the realm of "catchy" U2 songs, I think it's been awhile since I've heard one this good.

The beginning of "The Best Thing" reminds me the beginning of this "Electrical Storm" version

I can also hear a lots of David Bowie all along.

Their's a lot of experiment in here, but it's subtile. The Edge reinvents himself once again.

Been a while since I've visited this site... Hello!

I need to give it more time :)

I absolutely ADORE the lyrics, but I knew half of them already from the leak.

So far, I'm enjoying the Sci-Fi Soul Mix more-so, second song on here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

 it was more what I was hoping for. But the original sounds honest and somewhat intimate... it reminds me so much of the original mix of Electrical Storm.

What song does the chorus remind me of when I heard Edge's jingly guitar? Tip of my tongue...

I wouldn't even care if this was good "pop rock"...it's just really not. Anything off Coldplay's mediocre albums sounds about like this in terms of quality.

Just was hoping for something different. Still optimistic for the album.

Sounds like a song that would be quite happy as a 'B' side. Certainly no 'Vertigo' or 'Miracle'.

It could honestly be a pretty good tune if it wasn't for the chorus being completely cut and pasted in from a different song.

Reminds me of 'Gone' & 'Staring at the sun'. But not as good.

I knew I'd heard this, too. I think it's similar to the guitar around the 3:04 mark of Crazy Tonight.

Sounds like "Crazy Tonight" and "Window In The Skies" went to Ibiza and had a kid...

I like the kid.

Anyone see the picture of Bono circa Achtung Baby during the lyric video?

Good try... not what I was thinking of though. I feel like it's a from a b-side song..
