I actually enjoy the ending of Lights of Home, and I like LIBTAIIW a lot (which even surprises me tbh). The ending of BOYH is the best part of the whole album even if it's just a bonus track. Might even be my favorite U2 moment of the '10s.

Book of Your Heart is an outstanding track. It's the the only U2 song to successfully merge the band's talents with modern production. That practice before had always meant disaster.

Love is all we have left is, IMO, one of U2ís perfect songs. And yes, it has auto tune. This and they played The Ocean on E+I makes me think the band has one very good ambient album under their sleeves.

The strings version of Lights of Home works very well for me, even the cheesy ending. It really fits the song, IMO.

There are many, many good things about The Blackout and American Soul, in terms of intention and sound overall.

I can be found whistling Get out of your own way, which isnít a bad thing.

Summer of love and red flag day work for me too. I can totally get into them.

Iíve always said that the 1978 U2 would be very proud of the Showman. And very rightly so.

Little Things has one of Bonoís best recorded vocal takes, along with Nigel Godrichís take on Walk On.

Book of Your Heart is amazing in every way.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

If only there were a renowned ambient artist the band could call on to produce such a record...

I agree with quite a lot of this. Apart from GOOYOW. I cannot think of a single thing to recommend it.

It's better than The Blackout and American Soul.  They are pigswill.

I disagree.

Blackout is pretty good apart from the awful rhyming lyrics. American Soul is musically very good.
