What a birthday present... from the grea
How do I thank U2 for "releasing" this to "fans only" on my birthday? To have been at the filming (in Amsterdam) of this bad ass song was a blessing. How lucky I was to receive the best birthday present ever! I love you guys... the space/American kilted cowboy U2 Mooner. Great riff to the song, relevant message. So in touch guys; keep it up. No beginning to love. U2Mooner

The Blackout
Was initially underwhelmed and gave it a week's break. Replayed it today, low and behold, I now find it 3x better....... amazing! Now wishing it was the official first single and added to the live shows. See you in KC on Tue! Can't wait for some Red Zone!

Aung San Suu Kyi & the Rohinga
Hello Lads, Saw you guys play first at the Grand Circus in Detroit on the War tour, and that gave way to the Fox Theatre and Unforgettable Fire tour. Aung San Suu Kyi & the Rohinga. Walk On Part II?Met Edge on Suffolk Street one late eve when you guys were recording "Pop";If any band will do it, U2 will write about the complexity Aung San Suu Kyi & the Rohinga. Love & Peace, Charlie Travis

Great songs Black Out and You're the Bes
Both songs, Black Out and You're the Best Thing About Me, are really extraordinary. I hope they playing these songs during the shows in Mexico. I cant wait!!

THE BLACKOUT
Brilliant song U2. The moment Edge First started playing, there was a slight touch of zooropa. And then WOW full on brilliant heavy sound. With Larry getting stuck into the drums, and Adam standing out with his bass guitar, and Edge play all together, it's just such a brilliant sound all together. It's something I really wanted you to play again. A faster and heavy beat. Well done U2. Love it. Love you U2.

alibono
Amazing!!!

mikepd
yes
love it - such a groove and as if they have regained confidence I hope the rest of the album is as good I liked SOI (Troubles, Breaking Wave, Crystal) and NLOTH (Magnificent, MOS) but this has a swagger - I sense they are back and I can't wait
vaeleia
Such a catchy tune!
Sounds great, it's stuck in my head! Love the bass, it's my favourite part, go Adam!
rshersnow
Quite a tune
Catchy instrumentals all around. Edge has certainly outdone himself. Blackout is a perfect song for our current political climate too.

Hope ...
A powerful message of hope in dark times ... we can be the light in the darkness...catchy beat ... dark undertones (the garbled screams of Edge's guitar) ... reminds me thematically of Pop and that albums arc of dancing into the darkness at the threshold of the millennium ...
Milio
Fantastisch song

danastar
WOW!
I can't stop listening....Bullseye!! (Adam!!! You nailed it!!)
domix
