    The autotune is one of the worst decisions they ever could have made in the history of popular music. Pandering to young people who require that their singers need to all sound like the same
    f*****g robot is nonsense, and for U2 to follow that trend is horrendous for a band with the stature and reputation to fall for that. I blame Ryan Teddy Bear Tedder, Danger Rat, and anyone else with a say on that. Actually, it is probably Barlow, and he REALLY REALLY sets the BAR LOW with stinking Auto Tune... I can tell you that even though Eno and Lanois may have been getting stale, but they would not have done this awful crime. Would have been an easy 7/10 without the autotune, but it would be like putting ten pounds of salt with Sardines on a nice Steak, horrible, awful, bad, stink. Anyone guess that I hate Autotune?


    Actually Eno used Autotune quite a bit in the past:
  2. Auto tune here is used as a tool. Like a guitar effect. It isn’t used out of necessity. It adds to the song. For me this song is some of their best work since the nineties.

    I hate autotune unless it's used with taste and like an effect, not as an aid for a poor singer.

    +3. Although 90's Bono probably could have used his own voice/falsetto to get the effect. Really missing that, the falsetto was such a magic trick.
  6. This song for me is perfection. When I first saw it was a short song I just presumed it would be a fast paced rocker.
  7. Fantastic song!
  8. Love it!
  9. Still my favourite off the album -- and given my thoughts on the album, that's quite an accomplishment.
