Beautiful Day

(Link)
it was ALL about those four or five precious seconds of Edge's "classic" ringing guitar sound, that found their way to the foreground of the music behind Bono howling Touch me...

woke up that sad, sleeping part of our minds that had mourned and moved on... and brought us joy again

Does this mean there's no more of these? Oh please do UABRS, WAIA, and the Best Ofs! This has been fun and interesting.

Anyhow, in my opinion, ATYCLB is not U2's most spectacular studio effort. Usually it ends up last when I rank U2's albums. Worthy of a 7. Walk On is magic and it saved my life, Beautiful Day is wonderful, Elevation is very good, I never liked Kite until this year, but now I adore it ... but that's it. Some days I love Stuck, some days I hate it, so it all cancels out and I'm neutral. I don't like In A Little While until the "a man builds a rocketship" bit, Wild Honey's simply a fun tune and nothing more, I can say the same about Peace On Earth and New York as I can about Stuck, I don't listen to When I Look At The World or Grace much ...

... and for those of you, like me, who have the Australian (or British or Japanese version), The Ground Beneath Her Feet raises it to a 7.5. What a song! I lovelovelove it!

but I give it a 9...

Absolute tops is Walk On...

Wild Honey
Beautiful Day
Kite
Peace on Earth
When I Look At The World


Elevation... eh. sort of a throwaway IMO...
Stuck In A Moment is taking its time to grow on me, though the football video left me in absolute hysterics on the floor..
In A Little While, give it time, give it time.
New York... too much emotion there still.
Grace doesn't do much for me.

I've been waiting for this album to come up since this whole thing started! Well worth the wait. :)

Anyway, a perfect 10. Along with Achtung Baby, this is definitely my favorite U2 album of all time, and my very first one. I think it's a good album to start off with. Anyhoo, on to the favorites:

Kite
In A Little While
When I Look At The World

Honorable mentions go to Elevation, and I guess every other song on the album! I'd say the only song I don't like is Grace, and even that one is growing on me and I can tolerate it.

I'd give it a 10 although there are times when I'll skip certain songs that I'm not in the mood for. I'm so glad they came back after POP.

Fave songs:

Walk On
Kite (this song is very close to my heart for various reasons)
Peace On Earth
In A Little While (I didn't like this song at first but it grew on me...especially after hearing it live)
Elevation

I'm not passionately fond of ATYCLB... it's probably my second least favourite of the studio albums (just above October) and I don't listen to it all that much. I do, however, adore In A Little While, love Elevation, and think Grace is absolutely gorgeous. 8)  Wild Honey is fun to sing along to as well, though I didn't like it much at first!

Beautiful Day will now and forever be my absolute favorite song. It has helped me through many tough times. Never ever fails to make me smile! That's the song they played in a hotel in London over the summer, and a friend and I danced around the lobby at midnight :)

I also like Walk On...it's very inspirational.

It's interesting how we're pretty split on this one.

For me, I was so anxious before throwing the album into the player that when it did come on and it was GOOD, it was like a breath of fresh air, kind of like seeing a good friend you haven't heard from in a long time. I give it a 9.

My favorites:

Walk On
Kite
Stuck in a Moment (though I didn't like it at first. All my non-U2 friends were like, 'Oohh, I loooove that Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of song, it's great!' and I was kind of, 'Um... it's okay, I guess.' It grew on me, though.)
In A Little While

I wish Electrical Storm had been finished and put on this album, because I'm in love with that song. Something about it reminds me very much of Achtung Baby and it just feels good. :)

Oh hell yes.
Electrical Storm is what brought me back to U2... just enough of the right mix of things... you're dead on there, the old Achtung vibe..
