I really kind of hate Magnificent. I really kind of like this vid. Now I have Fannish Conflict Syndrome.

My life is complex.

Also, I think we need some kind of Bono's Bible Bingo card to keep track of all the biblical allusions in this vid.

When I saw the making of videos, I was expecting something very Mysterious ways with the location and the streets etc.

I really like it

It's nice, but I don't really understand it...

I think that if they are going to put a close up of Bono's butt they should have told him to tuck his shirt in... ;D

I was wrong, I saw a hint of Larry's smile. I love how animated Adam is in the video

I love Ad' to death anyways, but this whole "happy bouncing bass boy" thing he's got going lately takes me to a whole other level of Adam-lovin'.

Heh, I had to rewind the video because I was like, "did Larry just SMILE?!" Lo and behold, he did.

I dunno, I still like GOYB better because it's something different, you know? I mean, Magnificent is great and all. It's a beautiful video... but it's full of the same shots that are in every other U2 video. U2 playing in a semi-circle, mega closeups of Bono's face at an angle, scenic shots and shots of random people, and of course, the inevitable "U2 walking aimlessly in slow motion" shots. Tell me I'm not the only one that noticed that =P

You're definitely not alone! When I saw the first (obligatory, it seems) aimless slo-mo shot, I was like, NOT AGAIN. You'd think they are big enough and strong enough without having to do the same grand, "iconic" posturing to emphasize it all the time.
It's definitely very pretty, though.

It's pretty but I can't say I really 'get it'. I expect more from them really.

I am glad I am not the only one. I know there's more to it than I saw, I just don't understand what.

Right around 2:55 Larry seems to SMILE while playing!! WOAH!

It's loads better than GOYB, but that kinda sucked...

Am I the only one who doesn't get the symbolism of the sheets?

I like it. Magnificent is such a big song, that I like the clean-ness of the video. I liked Boots because it was wacky like the song.
Although the edit made me little grr, but that's because I hate change.
And I agree that if there's a Bono butt shot, I do not want a shirt hanging in front of it.
And Adam smiled! So cute!!

Sorry, meant Larry smiled. Adam's always on my mind. :)

I'm liking the song more and more, lyrically it's very like Rumi's poetry. What could be seen of Fes was interesting, and any time we get to see Larry smile and Adam get his groove on is definitely of the good...

However, the whole "rock stars strolling in the medina followed by local folks" shtick was cringe-inducing, and the performance stuff in the riad is a bit of a let-down after having seen clips from the actual recording process (it's too tidy, too contrived).

All things considered... I don't like the video.

It's lovely. Thankfully there was no horrific guyliner present.

Is it just me or has Edge pinched Bono's Irish Falcon?
