It's dreadful and has the faint whiff of 'contractual obligation' record about it.

Absolute garbage.
A number one hit in the USA!



Yeah it’s garbage.

But this afternoon I heard 10 seconds of Bowie and Jagger doing Dancing In The Street before I could hit the switch-that-fucking-shit-off button so there is definitely worse stuff out there.

Nice.


I'd rather listen to another ex-Cowboy, Walt Garrison, rap.

I don't really know where to start with this. It's a very special kind of bad.

It's ridiculous, but I kind of like it! I think it's good-natured. I think they're playing up the kitsch a bit - at least it's refreshingly free of the usual self-importance you get from Bono. Or maybe I'm just imagining it because it's what I want to think.

Better than most of the last 4 or 5 U2 albums, anyway...

I haven't watched it (I will later), but I'm wary any time Bono seems humble. It's just got to be an act.

I turned off after about 20 seconds.

I can’t even watch stuff like that these days. It’s like a scene outta the dinner party from hell.

Brought a tear to my eye, that did. I like the way the video times the "this land so free" line with the destruction of the landscape that is mount rushmore.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Still not as shite as Brighton Rock.
