It is a little less tha nexciting, for me at least. I went to the concert so iwas excited to see the video, but I thought it would have something actually happen, you know? Then again, I'm not exactly a fan of ABOY either *hides* lol.

I don't mind the song myself.

As for the video; compared to "Vertigo" it's just awful. I know that the second single rarely compares to the first, but *shrugs* it feels like no effort was actually put into this one.

Yeah, it was pretty lacklustre, but all artists have them. "I Believe in You" by Kylie comes to mind... ;)

see other comments; I never said that everyone had to be perfect.

And I'd argue that both "Walk On" and "Without or Without You" did an admirable job of capturing the mood of the song. I feel that "All Because of You" didn't.

Different strokes for different folks.

I know I'm going to get shot down... but I kind of find the whole album bland. Except for 2-4. I loved City of Blinding Lights at first, but... it just seems to lack depth.

*hides* Same with ATYCLB, though, maybe I'm just not ready for this change.

Don't be 'ashamed' to post your views. I personally *love* and think that the Pop album is their best to date. It's truly to each their own. I find How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb a little on the mellow side as well, but it is certainly a grower.

that's what I thought initially. Especially the first 45 seconds or so. I honestly thought they were just using footage from that video. But Bono's hair is technically too short. ;)

that's kind of how I feel.
not my favorite choice for the next single, by any means...there are 4 others I would have chosen first.

I love when a video makes you like that actual song more. I can think of a few songs that have had that effect with me.

I've not been keen on either the Vertigo or ABOY videos. I found the ATYCLB vidoes alot more colourful and engaging.
Oh well, it's not like I have to see it alot. I'm looking forward to the Sometimes... vid.

That's true. If you don't like the video, it's not like anyone is forcing you to watch it. I saw "All Because of You" once and that's enough for me. I agree with you on the ATYCLB videos. I can watch "Beautiful Day" and "Elevation" over and over again and not be tired of it.

i thought the video was awesome! I thought it was full of energy, and the excitement of the crowd totally added to it. idk, im one of the fans that LOVES everything they have done/do/say/etc so its hard for me to not like anything they do. i love them so much.

Honestly, being a part of the fandom for the pure enjoyment of it is nothing to be condemned for. I tend to be critical of all music I listen to, but I gain enjoyment from the artistic interpretations then necessarily the literal representations.

But "Discotheque"... flashing lights.... even I can be mesmerized. ;)

I'm another one :)

Though I like the video - it reminds me of Streets and I love the people running/dancing alongside the truck.

Yes. I find it very boring, and the crowd screaming throughout the song is really annoying!  I never thought much of the Streets video either. *shrug*

I also wasn't impressed with the Vertigo video. But I can't wait to see the one for Sometimes... maybe that one will be good!

(Love all the songs on the album, btw.)

Yes, you can go to Launch which I adore because they have almost all the U2 music videos or you can go to www.espn.com as they said on their official website.
Love and peace,

I really like it!

It reminds me of WTSHNN

Why don't you like it?

And is this going to be the second video clip of this album?

I thought it was going to be SYCMIOYO...

See all my various comments as to why I don't like the video. ;)

"All Because of You" is the second single for North American territories. "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" is being released in the UK & Europe as the second single. I would imagine it's a marketing ploy to get as much U2 play as possible. :)

I thought the All Because Of You video was a lot more interesting than the Vertigo video was... Vertigo was just the people singing... in a desert. What's more boring than a desert? Absolutely nothing interesting was going on except for the one part where they all sink into the ground and it's spinning... because that conveyed the sense of "vertigo."

The black trail-crap was stupid... it seems to me like something that someone decided to put in the video because they discovered how to do it... and maybe because they realized that deserts are boring as... deserts.

All Because Of You has a lot more going on, and it more fun to watch, in my opinion.

fair enough. For me though, "Vertigo" at least tried to convey some sense of unity from the song, to the single sleeve to the video. For me, "All Because of You" fails me. Great song; not so great video.

Honestly, it's not the worst one I have ever seen. There are plenty that can fill that not so illustrious position. But it's not the best I've seen either.
