Looks nice, was it done by Oliver Jeffers again or the guy who did the Volcano video?

At a guess it looks like whoever did Ordinary Love

It's actually quite well done. Don't think I will watch it too often but is decent enough.

Blackout and American Soul both start with stellar 1:45 openings.   The back-ends miss devastating guitar solos and instead get pandering.   I still enjoy both

Wasn't going to listen to any more of the new tracks until the album came out but i caved and watched this.  I will say the song isn't bad (sounds VERY familiar) but i can't stand these lyric videos.

Strongly agree with this, especially for Blackout. The song seems really ready to take off about two thirds of the way through and then - it doesn't. Interesting to know if the band just don't like extended guitar sections or if it's an Edge thing these days.

This and the Blackout are good but I have to agree with others that a good guitar solo is missing. The song needs something to kick it up a notch and its not there. The video is great though.
I love Rock N' Roll...so I booked a room at the heartbreak hotel and there, the music plays on and on.

I like the video.  Donít really like the song but I could imagine it being really good live.

I donít hate the song as much as I did when I first heard it...the lyrics are really dodgy but I like the tune.
