I hate the beginning...i hate the slide guitar sound on it but there are the bones of a decent song in there - buried under a terrible bland sonic bed sadly.

7.5 after 2 weeks of voting. Looks like it will be the top rated song on ATYCLB, just edging out Beautiful Day and In a Little While, each at 7.4.

I always want to like this song better than I do. Love the melody and Bono's delivery, but that slide guitar wears on me pretty quickly. (Which is a shame, because I usually love Edge's slide work.) Gave it an 8, but not one I actually want to hear often.
