usually when an old band such as u2, who have had so many hits i think they can't surpass or even match them with their new material. i was proven wrong with their all that you can't leave behind album. beautiful day and elevation for example.

i thought ok, its time for them to go down the path of "old band who cant make any new great songs"

but fuck after the first listen of this song they're proven me wrong again.

i guess its because i love u2's music, but man i love it. more rock n roll than they've done recently. ok

I dont know if anyone else remembered , when Bono said in a couple magazines and made comments about Full Metal Jacket or Tough. Being released on the new album, yet it appears they are either cut from the album or have a new name.

I heard their new song today on radio, and it's really not that good.  Nothing special in any way and the riff is seriously tedious.

I do like U2's earlier stuff though and it is great.

How can some of you dislike the new song?

It's the best thing they've done since " Mysterious Ways" really, it's that good.

Can't wait to buy the album

How many of you have checked this song out?

Sounds like U2 are shaking off the dust and are going to make a rock album again. Kinda reminds me of their older stuff...I mean ther really old stuff from 81-82.

As much as I love U2, it sounds like a blatant attempt to zero in on the recent "garage rock" revival as opposed to early u2

Excellent album! Possibly the best U2 album since Achtung Baby. Right now, I adore "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own."

Is that right? Because I've read there are only three copies of the album right now circulating (officially) worldwide.

http://www.heraldsun.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5478,11134289%255E2862,00.html

I highly doubt you have a copy of that album.

You know, I just realized that, what with the hat and the goatee, The Edge looks almost EXACTLY like Dave Kushner.

When U2 are good they are unreal - but virtually everything they have done in the last 10 years is really bland.....i'm really hoping they go back to the really intense stuff they could once pull off

Izzy, I hope you're right....it's amazing in and of itself how much passion they still possess for what they do, regardless.....For some reason unbeknownst to me at the moment, I don't anticipate this being a holding pattern release though...

Was scheduled for a Nov. 22 release but its already online. Im listening to it now. Cant say i like many ballads, and theres quite a few here. City of blinding lights & Crumbs from your table are ok.

But this isnt hard rock or whatever U2 said they were going back to.

tell me about it!  They're very lucky because they're getting serious airplay on all radio stations regardless of format.  Classic rock to modern rock - everybody's playing them.  I heard some of the new songs yesterday on KROQ, and I liked most of what I heard.
