After literally feeling raped by this band today and the ticketmaster "TM+" fiasco, I have no interest in buying this movie or listening to their music for awhile. So disgusted.

Some of the artwork in these videos would have made a great cover for the album instead of the awkward Mullens cover.

No matter how badly I want to say that it just mirrors the Boy album, it does feel awkward to me.

SFS vid is downright boring. I can't believe they just pictured someone painting a room and all that!

Most of these videos don't do much for me. And to make matters worse, I blind bought this on iTunes! The brief making of the album videos in the extras are neat, but other than that, it wasn't really worth buying.

Not intending to be a downer whatsoever....but am I the only one that found most of these fairly "blah".....I'll re-watch em later, but that was my immediate impression of most of them.

Unfortunately yeah, they're all pretty "blah". Won't be buying these, wouldn't even be bothered streaming them a second time.

Watched Crystal Ballroom and Cedarwood so far. I think Cedarwood is pretty stunning, proper art installation quality  8)

The guy of Volcano got the lyrics right: "something in your mouth to blow", LOL

Ok, now I've watched it all and I'm in the team who loved it! Come on, people, why the boredom?

Some of these vids are gems and the whole thing together is pure artsy and class! I love how the artists got absolute artistic freedom, so some of the results are pretty amateurs, while others followed a path the band wouldn't expect, but, yeah, that's how things get interesting.

Of course there are some not-very-good videos, but, well, they are urban artists, not film directors. You can see that some of them had good ideas and painted it well, like the guy from Every Breaking Wave, but the execution failed. Sad, but, overall, I loved it!

Here's my ranking:

Sleep Like A Baby Tonight
Raised By Wolves
Iris
This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now
The Troubles
The Crystall Ballroom
Cedarwood Road
California
The Miracle
Volcano
Song For Someone
Every Breaking Wave

Nice to see U2 doing these kind of unpredictable and interesting stuff!

Raised by Wolves seems to be standout from the others.

Ok...maybe I am just not an artsy person. But I wish U2 just went the Beyonce path and did a friggen meaningful video for each of these songs. Cause I really ain't getting this -
EBW - I could find NO meaning from Video to song
Iris - really disappointed. Landscape wise, it was a beauty, and that corridor reminded me of a dream I had when my "Iris" passed away. But it really had no emotion to it
Volcano - Twas cool... it was graphic and fun, saucy and like que the illumanti/U2 linkage with all the one eye symbols from them U2 haters. I liked the linkage to blow and that torso haha.
SFS - P A I N T
SLAB - Graphically its cool... BUT I JUST DONT GET IT MAN
TT - Totally got this, quite cool.
TMOJR - I liked this... it was fresh and vibrant. & loved the touch lucifers hands & rejoice at the end <3
Cali - It was like HMTMKMKM... had potential to go places but was meh.
TIWYCRMN - Was pretty epic. I guess.
CR - Almost gave me a fit at the start. Pretty imagery I guess
RBW - One of the better ones, still couldn't been a lot more WOW factor to it.


Overall ... I am underwhelmed. This had the potential to be sooo sooo much more. But it left me feeling flat ... flat with pretty imagery.
