I like to keep it at 'I think it's fun'  :)

Me, too.

I would have liked a studio version, just to hear everything more clearly and see what they could've done to round the track out.

It's just bono pretending/being drunk. I wonder how much time they spend on the song before they played it, haha

It’s a studio moment that they decided to make public. I enjoy it for what it is, a tease of all the stuff they’ve never released (and probably shouldn’t).

The early and unfinished version of Trip Through of that performance is nice, too

It's not a song but just a jam. Jamming is not always pretty but it's worth it for the great stuff coming through while letting go. U2 have become pretty good at filtering out the good stuff to continue working on. I guess the whole "Womanfish" show that can be seen in the video must have played a part in them becoming better at filtering out good stuff because you don't want to make your audience cringe. I like them when they are spontaneous: I might not care about "Womanfish" but "Last Night On Earth" is just great!

Not much there to really like or dislike.  Its not a song.

For me the band is really tight. I love the rawness of Edge's guitar playing and it's very much a wall of sound. The lyrics were meh at best but I still believe it could have been turned into something.

Look at She's Gonna Blow Your House Down. In the end the jam sessions on that song were better than the final result.
