coz I love it, but it's getting an awful lot of bad press on these here boards and I don't feel it's justified! Discuss.

It's one of the tracks I'm most excited about. It's very nicely written and produced and represents something a new (and successful) sound for the band. It already has me looking forward to the next album!

Love it. One of the highlights of the album for me.

I can just picture Bono out in a field, running soil through his fingers, singing:

Now this dry ground it bears
No fruit at all

It's starting to grow on me, after analyzing the lyrics and their intended meaning (Afghanistan soldier) better. :)

It reminds me of a combination of Springhill Mining Disaster and O Come Emmanuel.  I like it, more and more.

you have to listen to white as snow sitting outside, by yourself, nice day out, clear sky, noonish (very important there ;))  sunny, and just sitting, relaxing, listen it to it then, it will be your favorite

I have no clue why its getting so much negative press. Its their best slower tempo songs since Running To Stand Still IMO. At least the best since Stay.

I love it. The symbolism of it mixed with a bit of O Come Emmanuel melody added.
