I'm really into this song right now. Just an awesome track. Was watching the performance of it in Boston, wow. Can't wait for the tour next year.

It's an odd song, isn't it? I like it a lot.

I love it, it's my second favorite song from SOI (after TT), and easily a top 5 post-Pop U2 song for me. They never should have second-guessed Danger Mouse.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

CB, and This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now are two wonderful songs, and the only two I can actually bear to listen to from SOI.
What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

This. I picked up SoI on vinyl earlier this year and didn't listen to the 12" mix until weeks later...I was blown away at how incredible it was compared to the regular version. That song should have been on SoI officially.

I hold out hope that someday, many years from now when the band is looking to generate more revenue, they will release the DM version of SOI and the Eno version of NLOTH. (not holding my breath)

The Crystal Ballroom should be on the regular version of the album.

Yeah it should have been on the album. If you’re going to inject your album into peoples phones at least inject its best moments

Very Cool song..just thought the lead break at the end went on a bit of an extended trip.

Begs the question , like so many u2 songs why was it not on the album? beats the heck out of California..for me
