Are these the same snippets that were posted in the other thread? The website seems to be down.

i can access the site. i listened to the snippets again. i'm trying to like the song. i know it's too early to judge..maybe i am just expecting too much...i will still love it because it is by and from U2. i'm a loyal fan, no matter what.

I probably wouldn't judge a song based on only hearing 2 ten second parts (and bad quality at that)....plus if it's music that has to grow on you, that makes it even better. I've found that the best U2 songs are the ones I didn't entirely get at a first listen.

Well if you don't love it ... you won't love it but you'll just be pretending you do. I wouldn't worry though, it'll almost certainly be awesome anyway! Sounds to me that there's some elements from Pop with the lyrics too, which I take as a good sign.

Anyone get the feeling that this is actually the re-working of Pop?  :P

i might love it,too. because there are some old songs of U2 that i didn't like at first hearing but when i played them over and over again while sinking into me the meanings of Bono's lyrics (which are always deep and beautiful lyrics), i have loved those songs in the end. as i said, perhaps i am just expecting too much.

You're welcome. And, yes, it's very groovy. I can't help dancing to it.....even though it's such a short snippet.  :D

Does it sound a bit like "Pump It Up" by Elvis Costello, or is it just me?  I've been listening to 1st Wave in my car lately...

Its definitely got a 60's feel to it, with an up to date electro rock vibe......awesome.
