Grabs on
Life long U2 fan, major fan. A lot of songs I have to hear a few times before they really grab me. But this song, the Beautiful Day so many years ago, this song instantly grabbed me. I love it!

No lights go out
No lights go out on The Blackout. The Guitar rift and bass is awesome and hopefully a clear indication of what is to come

Please Play Blackout in Buffalo
LOVE the New song! So awesome to hear great new songs while still celebrating the old great songs. Was so great to hear The Little Things in Boston and NY but really want to hear The Blackout in Buffalo!

Disappointing..again
Another disappointing new U2-song. Sad to listen to even though the expectations aren´t very high anymore. It used to be amazing when U2 released new material. This is just so average and sometimes annoying. Been a fan for many decades and have enjoyed it along the way. I can imagine how an LFC supporter must have it these days. They used to be very good but it just faded away. Similar to being a U2 fan

Blackout -Songs of Experience
Blackout Awesome Can hardly wait for Songs of Experience. I'm pretty sure and excited that Blackout will be opener for tour next year. Can hardly wait to hear new single next week and also Little Things on Tour next year. Fav and best band in the universe....

you're the best thing about me...
you too.... (about me.. ) the blackout... wow what a sound!!! New album=new tour ( I need that !!!) New tour = for me it's great moment, see again the same U2's fan and meet the new, have good time with them (bar restaurant,..) Wait, wait and wait before the show during a long long time together!! now they became "my U2 family".... I need this moments to break "the routine of the everyday life" and travelling around Europe to see the shows with You. My son love your show in Paris ( he is 10 years it's a new fan...) We love you guys...

Just Brilliant!!!!
They have done it again, hard to believe that they can still produce such fantastic relevant music after all these years. Can't wait for the new album. Been a very special time for U2 fans, with the JT anniversary tour and now this and the new album on the horizon. A happy fan :-)
