U2's New Single "Get On Your Boots" (kinda sucks).


Here's a kind of guess quality youtube radio rip of U2's new single from their upcoming album No Line on the Horizon. It's typical U2 minus the Edge's obsession with guitar delay....so...I'm not a fan. I think it sounds like the band is going for a more organic and rough sound, but Brian Eno's sleek production kind of works against that. All in all, it's a disappointment.

AVOID SINGLES LIKE THIS IN THE FUTURE, PLEASE

First, I'm a huge fan of U2, but this song sucks
So here is some things u2 have to consider in the future:
(AGAING, THIS IS CONCERNING THE NEW SONG)

1. Enough with Eno and Lanois (Maybe Nigel Godrich).
2. Enough with catchy songs (Elevation, Vertigo, and this one) in every new album.
3. Enough with "We're cool and lets make a song that say that"
4. Enough with songs to get new fans. You have all the fans in the world.

PD Does anyboby knows if 'Mercy' is included on the new album (with another name, of course)? That's a song!

U2 just reversed evolution. Words of the last U2 song wil be:
BLA, BLA, YEAH, GO, GO,
NO, NO, SEXY, YO, YO, YEAH...
