This song is FANTASTIC. I'm listening to it on repeat and it really gets better and better with each listen. The new album is going to be a monster. ;D

Yeah it's pretty lame. And disappointing considering they were away for 4 years. I still haven't lost hope though. The rest of the album still sounds like it could be ace.

I remember alot of people not liking The Fly when it came out. And look at that song now. Does anyone remember first putting AB on and hearing that intro from Zoo Station? I was a tad freaked. I went from UF and JT, to that. I think we may be seeing that in this album. Maybe not such a huge departure as that, but they definetly are going in a different direction.

True anthony02.. I was so freaked out by AB when I first heard it, I just got halfway through EBTTRT before I turned off the tape & cried.. I didn't pick it back up for like 3 weeks. 4 or 5 months later, I thought it was the best album they'd ever put out.

it's a good song, but not up there with their best lead off singles (With or Without You, Beautiful Day, Desire, etc...)

to me it sounds like a HTDAAB b-side, very much like Xanax & Wine/Fast Cars.

doesn't the "let me in the sound part" feel like it was taken from their own version of Happiness is a Warm Gun?
