Above my expectations
I had given up on the idea of saying something like that, "that was the best sound I've ever heard from U2 since Achtung Baby!" Incredible song! Politicized, sarcastic and mature enough to be simple when it's meant to be serious, "the darkness where you learn to see." And those lines have combined a lot with the groovy style of this rock and roll! If it is the lead single would already do a huge damage on the quality standards of the band. It's obivious that I already consider U2 off the curve of what is normal in terms of longevity and quality, but after this sound, my goodness, did not just leave the curve, but SOE seems to have enough strength to take the place of the more challenging sound of U2 and tasty to listen to. Congratulations!

This is HOT!!!
What a great kickoff to their new album! Totally looking forward to hearing the rest of the material. Hopefully we'll get to hear it when I see them in St. Louis and San Diego in September. I think the GA crowd will go nuts when they play this song.
