I have to give major credit to this (very underrated) tune from The Passengers album.
It kick started my love of ambient music and expanded my musical horizons like some kind of drug.
The imagery is stunning, and the sounds are urgent and well crafted.
It also, played out perfectly at the end of the Anime classic, 'Ghost in the Shell.'
One Minute Warning is something brilliant. Don't know what U2 were thinking at the time, but whatever it was, they need to get back on it.
what they said
"I’m about horizontal relationships rather than vertical. I don’t want to have a boss, I don’t want to be a boss. The one vertical in my life is whatever we call God’s love. God is love and if it’s not love, it’s not God. Though you appreciate community and congregation, you’re an audience and you feel the divine around you even in the natural world. There is a part of this surrender that is on your own. And it’s you. And you have to make that moment happen. It’s terrifying to let your hands off the steering wheel. For me, I ended up in the best job in the world with the best people in the world, so it turned out very well for me. For others, it’s brought them to work in Bangladesh right now as their country’s drowning. In that moment of surrender, you will find the most useful version of yourself. For me, that’s maybe the only thing I do on my own."

When U2 were recording 'Electrical Storm', it was Bono's intention to write about the aftermath of 9/11, but it turned out to be a love song.
