I made a lengthy post on the thread about it on Interference, so I'll just quote myself here:

I don't even know where to begin with my thoughts. They all sound really, really, like worship songs. Particularly that second one, which I actually rather like. After hearing some of Bono's "thank you for the day" lyrics on NBC Nightly News, I was quite afraid, but he seems to have turned it into something quite beautiful.
In the other songs, I'm quite pleased with the presence of bass and drums... at least we know that Adam and Larry are on the premises.

I like the sound of the first song, though for most of it I can barely understand what Bono's singing, so I can't really judge the lyrics too much. Though there is that one part where he could either be saying "I believe in you" or "I'll be leaving you", both of which push the song into different directions. My favourite part is the buildup after 1:10, and the Bono-noises.

I already commented on the second song, but I must say, the piano, especially at the beginning sounds awfully familiar, and my mother agrees. My immediate reaction was "early 90s pop ballad, sung by a female", and I then I figured it out.. "Save the Best for Last" by Vanessa Williams, but comparing them now, they're not as similar as I originally thought. Regardless, I find the song to be very beautiful, it feels quite personal, and it definitely sounds like a prayer.

I've got mixed feelings about that third song. It's bouncy and cheery, but I find it a little bit boring. Maybe it's just because "All my life I've been waiting for this moment I'm in" just reminds me of Kelly Clarkson. But despite my feelings about the mood, Edge's solo is killer. And we get some patented Bono "OooooooOH!"s.

The fourth song is really way too short to gather much of an opinion on. But I think I liked what I heard.
