Decent track, but it is difficult to see the U2 of 2018 having any empathy with the narrator. 7.

7, but it's really just a segue in a movie.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

7. I consider it the "true" open to an album that I was just crazy about when I was a kid. Screw that Helter Skelter mess at the beginning...U2 should have started the album with VDL.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

4/10

One of the album's best songs, but still one that I feel ambivalent towards.

One of my favorites, but I only gave it a 7 for being a bit of a duck out of water. Lovely, but not very U2-ish.
