A big league TEN from me.  I love the anthemic U2 and this the first time they swing for the fences and hit a home run.  The last ~51 seconds is pure bliss.  Edge cuts through the silence and Bono gives it everything heís got. In Latin no less.

6.  Not a favourite but I like the sounds of the early 1980s in music generally. Things were purer and innocent then.

10. 10. 10. 10. 10. 10. 10.

Perfect.

Would sure like to hear the damn thing live for once.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

Surprised by the many 10ís itís receiving. Good song no doubt. But not one of their masterpieces, IMHO.

7/10

Solid, but not deserving of a perfect score by any means.
