You're The Best Thing About Me. If this will be the sound of the new album I might enjoy it.
The Blackout Facebook release was a disappointment for me. But maybe there will be a better album version, without Bono's distorted vocals and with more melody in Edge's guitar.
I like all of them, but The Little Things That Give You Away is the clear winner. I'd give it six stars if that was an option. The Blackout is really excellent, and I like The Best Thing a lot, even if it's nowhere near their greatest song ever, I find it a lot of fun!
"The other side of U2 is Hawkmoon. I'd like to say that, uh... I mean I called it Hawkmoon 269 because... It seems to me... Well, it's a reference to a few people, like one of my favorite writers Sam Shepard, but also to... It's a motel room in my imagination somewhere..."

U2 drew inspiration from their studio surroundings while writing "Staring At The Sun" including Howie B's ear abscess, the European Cup, and the British presence in Northern Ireland.
