Well that sounds a bit throwaway but it's not terrible like Ahisma or the new Coldplay song. 

Still, cliched lines repeated over and over

Very fresh. When I copied the link it had less than 50 views. I downloaded it just in case it disappears. The melody and the singing is fine. I cannot say much about the lyrics yet.

Overall seems throwaway with stale chord prog and music and melody is basic. But not offensive unless the lyrics are (didn’t hear them).

The Marc Bolan style was pretty okay though, just didn’t really go anywhere special.

That’s what I got from it also. Not horrible, but not very good either. Sounds like a demo with the cliched lines and theme Bono’s been using for about the last decade.

It's alright.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

Does Bono even know how to write a song these days without the word ‘love’ in it?

Love is all we have left and it’s bigger than anything in its way.

This is not exactly a new affliction of Bono’s.

I agree just seems in the past 10 years it’s all been about love. Can’t fault the man for wanting harmony and love and preaching the message. A bit overused at this point in my opinion.

I 100% understand that. But I accept what will not change.

I think the point of complaint is that he has lost that sense of friction and nuance.

I did not follow a single lyric on the song but I’m surprised he blew the Eden theme on a throwaway.

I really wish u2 would make a shoegazing album with some dream pop melodies as well.

The more echoes and walls of sound, the less unfortunate cliché lyrics (hopefully)

They could call the album 'Solar' and let that be the most ironic part of it, make it a meditative beauty that blows us all away
