I always thought October was their worst album, but Songs Of Ignorance is putting up a really tough fight. I think this new song is ok. But just to show how people's opinions vary, I still love Stuck In A Moment as a classic song, but the venom on this site for it is real. Some just don't like U2's cheesy pop side. Had Invisible, Crystal Ballroom, Lucifer's Hands, and the original Ordinary Love, the acoustic Breaking Wave been on the actual album, and maybe had California's intro been shortened, SOI would've probably avoided worst album for me, but the way it was released, it is. This new song is what it is, a track for a kid's movie, and I may grow to like it more, but the last 15 years we keep hearing about new sounds, but it's the same old thing and style. SOE is better, but Book Of Your Heart is more proof they are terrified of putting the best songs on the actual albums. Yearning for hits that never come for over 40 acts. Uh, over 50 acts, uh, ancient acts. Pop hits are difficult for those over 35 these days, and their chasing for hits would be like me trying to go to a club filled with 18 year old girls expecting to get a date. Foolish.

I hope the new album can also be fresh and melodic. SOI and SOE are pretty good, but - to me - they sound a bit strained at times.
