By shaun
Format:Audio CD
(...) FOR THE NEW U2 CD. I HAVE HEARD THE NEW SINGLE FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS ON THE RADIO AND NOT BAD MUST GET IT WHEN IT COMES OUT IN STORES. I HEARD THE WHOLE CD IT SOUNDS LIKE OLD U2 AND I LIKE THE EARLY STUFF BACK IN THE 80'S. OUT OF ELEVEN TRACKS SEVEN TRACKS I LIKE. FOR THE U2 FANS OUT THERE THIS CD IS WORTH THE BUY

3.0 out of 5 stars Good b-side Nov. 17 2004
By S B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you have not heard "Vertigo", then you have been living under a rock. The real catch, and what makes this cd-single better than Vertigo #2, is the b-side, which is a good (but not great tune) - a bit of a rocker, lyrically in the vein of "Always" (the b-side from "Beautiful Day") - and a nice addition to those who will be burning their own HTDAAB+ cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Loving It!!! Nov. 18 2004
By Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ladies and Gents, the most overplayed song of 2004. It is successfully being played on every media possible, but it's still a great track. The band in it's primary colours of rock n' roll, the Edge is a God man! Good B-side too, which Edge really works, but the lyrics and chorus is weak. Still worth every penny though.

4.0 out of 5 stars B-Side For The EXtreme u2 fan! Nov. 30 2004
By Thomas R. Vance - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this single exclusively for the b-side. "Are You Gonna Wait Forever". This a great ,upbeat song!!! I wish it was on the regular album! I wish it could take the place of either the 7th,8th, or 10th track on the regular album. I think one of those songs should be a b-side, but not this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars people need to get over themselves May 10 2005
By matthew barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
this is a great rock song. pure and simple. it's got a great hook... a great guitar riff... and great lyrics that, if you think are just fluff, then you're not really using the intelligence that i hope you have. (i'm giving you the benefit of the doubt.) in the tradition of all U2 songwriting, the song can be interpreted on many levels. that's the brilliance of Bono's lyrics. you can enjoy it as a peice of escapist pop art, or go deeper and get a real sense of meaning out of it.

as far as U2 "selling out," they weren't paid a dime for their participation in the iPod ads. they got behind something that they believed in and would give them some promotion at the same time. what's wrong with that? they're remaining relevant unlike most aging rock bands by showing up for the Grammy's and playing the Super Bowl, etc... If you had a platform like that and a message you wanted to get out and an art that you'd spend all of your time and money on, wouldn't you think you'd want to share it with as many people as possible? it's clearly not about the money (the own most of Ireland and are doing pretty fine... they could have given this album away and they'd still be fine), though i'm sure what they can do with the money has been taken into account (the work in Africa, etc...).

open your eyes and enjoy U2 for what they are... brilliant. if you don't like it, don't listen. but think a bit before you get all self-righteous and criticize.

2.0 out of 5 stars Who mastered this? Jan. 29 2007
By J. Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great rocking tunes - musically. There is no digital headroom though with the mix - its pegged to the max. The songs are extremely compressed to the point of distortion even at low volume. It sounds like someone deaf mastered these songs. Even the vocals are distorted. Maybe that's how they wanted it, but this seems to be the growing trend with all digital music - to see how much headroom can be squeezed out of digital levels to the point of low level distortion. Bottom line - the songs rock, but the audiophile in me says they sound like c-r-a-p. It would have sounded better having the band play in a garage and putting up 2 cheap microphones to capture the moment instead of wasting money on a deaf engineer :)
