I find lists like this to be reductive and frustrating.  It's like pieces of evidence being presented on a case to convict U2 of being stuck in the past, or cashing in.

David Bowie, a certifiable iconoclast who was endlessly lauded for being current and never looking back, did John I'm Only Dancing (Again) in the mid-70's, and wrote a sequel of sorts to his first hit back in 1980.  He did a greatest hits tour in 1990.  He re-recorded his early songs for an as-yet unreleased album in the early 2000's.  These facts don't detract from the work he did, and U2 recognizing their own past doesn't detract from theirs.

EBW could have been a great song but IMO it has an overly 'pretty' almost sickly sonic veneer that sucks the raw emotion that exists in the song out of it and grounds the song mired in a MOR hell.

A real shame because it could have been achingly beautiful but for me as it is it is elevator/supermarket music where the production and this pop veneer that it has just wring the life out of the song - especially in the chorus.....some of the rest of it is fine but then this MOR hell is unleashed!
