Started out hating it but it gets better after each listen. Love Bono's crisp voice in this track. Probably the most under-rated number on the cd. Still can't stand Cedar of Lebannon though.

I actually like Cedars of Lebanon. It is a great way to close the album in my opinion.

How about Unknown Caller though? People think the lyrics are cheesy with the whole restart and reboot thing but I love the song.

Veni Veni Emanuel...

Cool insight, thanks!

That might be a way to play it live! with a harmonium or organ synths...

The music is stellar and I still get chills with the droning synth, birdsong and then Edge guitar.....Once again, Bono's lyrical idea is something that no one is trying to pull off nowadays, with the chanted parts quite possibly being the spiritual voice of the creator speaking to a lost soul through their computer, cellphone, ATM, what have you. I love it.  My girlfriend, who has been monitoring my countdown to the album with bemusement and then excitement (since she's not a U2 fan per se) told me that was her favorite after one listen.
