SNL 17

Anyone watch this?

Sounds Hendrix influenced with the fuzz. I also heard a Allen Ginsburg America snippet.

I honestly have no clue why the choose to play arguably the worst song on the album, and the 2nd worst? Has me head scratching.

Performances were ok. American Soul - the guitar sounded a bit loud in the mix.

The whole thing sounded thin to me. But then again so does some of the album.

Mix sounded low on tv for sure. Donít disagree about American Soul but liked the visuals and the guitar sound is awesome. Disagree about Get Out of Your Own Way that song has definitely grown on me quite a bit especially like Bono reciting the Kendrick Lamar part live.

Agree the mix seemed a bit off, especially on American Soul.  Get out sounded a bit better.  Both performances I thought were pretty good.  I personally like both songs and thought the live performances were pretty good aside from the mix on American Soul.

The megaphone is beyond annoying. And Bono used it for both songs.

Which irritated me. Then again, SoE irritates me so far. So Iím far from objective...

I agree about the megaphone.  The casual viewer won't understand what he's saying since it is so muffled, or care for that matter.

Get out of your own way is one of the two worst songs on the album?  I strongly beg to differ. One of my favorites.

Itís horrible. Cheesy wailing and spoken nonsense. Itís trying to be so artsy and cute and it just falls flat. Honestly the first thing I thought of was Taylor Swift. It ruined my first listen enough that I told a family member that the album is no good. Listening more though, there are some really good songs... just not GOOYOW.
