That 'ache' that Bono sometimes speaks of with U2's music is lessened somewhat on this version imho at least. It loses a little bit of its rawness and ache with all the extra production in the coda in particular, and it ends up turning into almost a feel-good ending.
That said I do rather like it. But just a 3 stars for me, it's not off the scale good, but is a nice alternative. Wonder if it will be done this way live?
