I love it so far.

Maybe its because I'm 19?
I'm 13 and haven't heard it. Can someone provide a new link?

So far, early on...Bono's lyrics are truly coming from an experienced place...he has created really amazing stuff. Its really nice to see/hear.

Who needs haters when you've got U2 fans

If you've not liked anything U2 have done since 1991, 93, 97, 2000 then why are you still here?

Not sure if this one was previously posted in this discussion, but someone edited together a couple clips.  I think.  Could be different views of same clip.

I like the chorus.  Sure sounds like the end of Beautiful Day throughout, though.

It seems like a very NICE U2 song, so all we can surmise at this point is two nice songs (Own Way & Best Thing) and two songs tinged with melancholy or darkness (Little Things, Blackout).

So far, three out of four songs seem rather chorus-heavy.

And for the record, I have no problem with anyone who thinks they're going to hate the album based on what they've heard or anyone who thinks they're going to love the album based on what they've heard.

But one thing is true: we haven't heard THE ALBUM yet, so wherever you stand on this none of us has the full picture yet.

Already posted, the solo is very "walk on"

Oh dear...

Four songs in and it's looking like this is going to be an absolute led balloon.

Funny, I was going to say four songs in and I already see more to work with than on the last couple of albums. To each their own I guess, but your "absolute lead balloon" might be a tad dramatic.

The misspelling was intentional.
I liked SOE, a bit overproduced but some well crafted songs throughout.

I find The Little Things boring and the other three songs detestable. I've never really felt that way about U2 music before.

Full disclosure - I'm still not that high on the Blackout. I think it'll really benefit from proper sound on the album, but it's just not clicking for me for a lot of reasons. I find it a bit clunky both lyrically and melodically and I find the chorus is just bland.

As for the other three, I'd have trouble rating them based on not having heard all of them in full, but I'm leaning towards Get Out of Your Own Way as the best. And here's my reasoning: There seems to be a backlash against simple melodies, but in my opinion, U2's greatness came from their command of simple melodies. From Pride and Bad to the entire Joshua Tree, it's what they do best. The Best Thing and Get Out may not have some of the atmospheric texture and nuance of those great tracks, but at least it's a return to some pretty strong melody which, in my opinion, has really been lacking in the last couple of albums.

For this commenter, if U2 has re-discovered a knack for finding melody, I'm happy. I've given up on them writing another Achtung Baby.

Hard to get the full picture for the song (I think the YT clip) is the perhaps mainly the last 90 seconds of the song, but I like it so far.  The video vibes fit the song too, which is of optimism, joy and letting go.   

As several have already said, its hard to please everybody.   But I am optimistic on SOE based on what I've heard.   Remember, we've only heard some parts of 1/3 of the album (and at that only a studio version for one out of 11 or 12 songs).   Imagine rating Achtung on just listening to Mysterious Ways, live versions of Zoo Station and Tryin to Throw Your Arms Around the World, and a 90 second clip of a video shoot of Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses.   Doing so wouldn't allow for all full picture, story, intricacies, and essential album tracks that AB was so heavy on.   Not saying SOE will be as great as AB -- that would be a near impossible feat, but I think its way too early to deride the album and write it off -- but if people want to, that's obviously their right (you either dig what you hear, or you don't).

Listened to about 30 seconds of it, I would like this song to be mostly entirely new to me when it comes out. I did listen to just enough that I will remember what it sounds like from now until it comes out! It's really good though, and I cant wait for the full song!

you should not have to listen to an album for a whole year to try and force yourself to like it...band`s last album was a load of B.S.....the 4 songs we have so far sound a bit better(although this wouldnt be hard) although still incredibly bland...they can still do it as recent songs like Invisible and Ordinary Love prove but if the path they are now treading on leads to this pop pap we are being subjected to i would rather they chucked it

I find this last comment very hard to reconcile in my head as I found Ordinary Love far more bland than anything I've heard yet from SOE. To each their own should be this forum's motto.

I agree about the  year thing though.. it seems a bit like trying to hard to try and like something... unless of course it was disliked on a first listen and then parked for 12 months and rediscovered in a different light.

I have a 3 listen rule personally. Can be difficult to judge on a first listen, but if by the 3rd there's no spark beginning to emerge then it's adios amigo.
