Really good song, but Beautiful Day was better. It had proper structure to it, whereas Always was more of an idea than the finished article. Great to listen to though, it has such a great energy, like most of the ATYCLB songs.

Well it was either that or Beautiful Day. I'd have been pi**ed if they took off When I Look At The World and replaced it with an earlier version of Beautiful Day!

It is a great b-side, definitely better than Holy Joe.

Cheers,

I'd have taken a Beautiful day remix over the snooze fest that is Stuck, the cheesiness that is Peace on earth, the downright awfulness of New York, the throwaway Elevation or the pap that is Wild Honey

Stuck in a moment is a great melody, beautiful song.

Elevation is throwaway but its class, great pop song!

Wild honey and Peace on earth are probably not the most memorable song's they've ever written but it is a bit strange to criticise u2 songs for being cheesy...that cheese is part and parcel of u2!

Don't you think it would be a bit odd to have two versions of a song on the same album?

And IMHO, beautiful day is better than Always, the band were rite to go with beautiful day instead!

I love "Always"!  It's one of my favorite b-sides.  It contains one of my favorite lines as well:  "Be uncool.  Yes, be awkward!" 8)

Best song on 7. The bassline mixed with that little guitar riff in the verses brings tears to the eyes.

Well all I can say is thank God you're not U2's record producer!  ;)

"always" is a good b-side but to put it ahead of some songs like new york (great song),wild honey and stuck in a moment i can't go with that,its way to similar to beautiful day to be on the album .lots of love for new york here im afraid :)

New York is one of the best live songs i have ever heard. i put it up there with Bad and Streets! i just think the record version is not all that great.
