I didn't know we needed a remake of The Escape Club's Wild Wild West.

Wow, this is quite good! And now I see what they meant about this album sounding different from average U2 albums and having a more rock-ish sound.

Hopefully this one will be heavier and less Coldplayish than the last one.

The song was OK, but it doesn't truly thrill me.
I expect there to be better songs on the album.

Ugh.  More Vertigo.
The riff at the start isn't so bad but the guitar sound is truly uninspiring.

I can't wait for the new album and tour.

I'm definitely booking tickets to see them.

I like U2 too! Bono is a great singer, and not a bad actor!

Obviously a single, being extremely slick. It's a little on the repetitive side, IMHO. Well produced, well executed, but totally uninspired music-wise: cliché riffs, standard harmonies, synthetic rhythm. I smell a cash-in album coming up.

Edge should release a solo album soon - if he can. Not that he's brilliant (steal his delay pedal and he's over), and it won't sell a million, but it will give a warning to Mother Theresa Vox.

Don't like U2 too much, and don't like the new song either. 
The only songs they have that I like like are; The Sweetest thing, Hold me, thrill me, kiss me, kill me, Desire and Elevation.

He did quite a while ago.  He did the music from the film Captive, which has a soundtrack that is quite good.  It was released in 1986.  Mother Theresa died 11 years later.

Me neither. The only U2 song I honestly like is "Pride(In The Name Of Love)". "With or Without You" is okay too. Much of "The Joshua Tree" album isn't half bad either.

Thats pretty much what I thought. Substandard even for them I think.
