Volcano vs American soul

THIS IS NOT A "I CANT BELIEVE THEY REUSED THE SOLO FOR THE CHORUS THREAD"

Discuss American Soul vs volcano. Which song is stronger? Which do you prefer?

I like volcano more. The bass is amazing and really stands out.

American Soul for sure. Volcano with much more added to the mix essentially.

Shouldn't these kind of threads have a *Spoiler Alert!* attached?

Hearing the sameness of the chorus was a disappointment I was waiting until the album release for.

Volcano is so much better. It has more energy and feels much more focused.

I like both a reasonable amount, but I can't decide. Volcano is a stronger song, but American Soul has Refujesus!

I think American Soul. It's much better, the verses (melody), guitar. But I miss the bass (drums and bass ::) ) and I'm a bit sick about the American stuff. I'm not an American and the only reason I would go there is for the the Grand Canyon and those parks around and Alaska (or Canada).

American Soul just tears through the first 2 minutes.   Volcano at times has a baseline like early R.E.M.

While I like the melody in the verses of American Soul, the song overall is weaker than Volcano IMO.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Sorry. But don't you think you should've stayed out of a thread comparing a new song to an old one? The title doesn't mention them reusing it. I could've put miracle vs Summer of love.

Well that's something to look forward to then.

Volcano. Neither are especially good, with both suffering from some troubling lyrics, but Volcano is overall a superior all-around track.

American Soul. It's got more attitude. Volcano is often a skip song for me. American Soul is simply more interesting and powerful to my ears.

American Soul.  For me it's tighter, fiercer, more on point.  I would never have made heads or tails of Volcano lyrically if I hadn't read Bono's explanation.
