« on: January 26, 2009, 12:22:15 AM »
lets pick from their last three releases...in order mind you

angels too tied to the ground

i believe in father christmas

get on your boots


i am reallly really into angels too tied to the ground ATM and i have a bunch of friends (non U2 fans) into it as well...the piano bass and drums are fantastic, the lyrics and singing are dark and low, what little guitar there is, is nice and the edges backing vocals are really stuck in my head ive been singing them all day...i really would love to know when they recorded this. whether or not they fixed the entire thing recently or what i mean the vocals are definitely recent. i wish they hadn't released it in the remaster of war they couldve easily released this with NLOTH and said yeah weve been working on it for 16 years and i wouldve been like awesome first song...i seriously loved this song on first listen and i can rarely say that about any song

I like Angels Too Tied To The Ground very much :D  Actually come to think of it, we don't talk about it much and after all it is a fairly recent release.

I have a hard time choosing between "Boots" and "Father Christmas"...they're both great at what they're trying to accomplish.  I can give you this much, though--"Angels Too Tied to the Ground" is the worst U2 song ever.  I truly think I might have been happier had it remained in the dustbin at the U2 office.  Bleak stuff; the only U2 song that has ever caused me to stare at my car stereo in abject horror when it was first played...

They started writing it 26 or so years ago. The vocals are recent, and who knows what else is too. Cool song though.

Boots has a big engine of a sound, and Angels has a more abstract ethereal quality - more like the new album art. For me - Angels is by far the more interesting of the two - I guess this is because my favorite U2 songs are the ones in which Edge created a unique musical landscape. Boots is a very good song, and I think it meshes well with Vertigo. Maybe they're using it as a transition for the live sets between the two albums.
