Bill, you should be playing Vladimir Horowitz's recording instead of this recording. Horowitz gives 10 times the expression.

Seems that most people just vote on songs they like or really hate. How else does this rate so high (7.5 at the time of this writing)? I give it a 3.
Did you see your own ratings before posting this? hehe, talk about like/hate.. and you really hate a lot of songs eh?
But maybe you're right.. People are just not as enthusiastic and eager to rate middle-of-the-road semi-good songs. And it makes perfect sense.
But that can't be why this song gets high rating?
I like it. Especially the intro. 7.

heard PS being interviewed once and he explained how he usually wrote the music first including the melody and then came up with the lyrics - and now it's so obvious whenever I listen to him that it irritates me a bit - the words always sound shoe-horned and clunky - unlike the music which feels so much more natural
Words are so one dimensionel, if that. Just mind-food. Waves on the sea. It´s more what´s underneath, that makes a song good/magical, to me.

I don't understand all this U2 bashing. Bands evolve and change. Yes, their sound has changed. But is that so bad? Evolution is good. And yes, before I get jumped on, I am aware of U2's entire collection. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb is obviously nothing like War or the Joshua Tree, but why should it be? Artists are creative, and the best of them are constantly reinventing themselves.
Imagine if The Beatles stayed in the Love Me Do period. Music is alive.

|My reason for not liking this song, even though I loved it to begin with:
I got fooled by the slow beautiful guitar and the intimite voice. The great sound.
But it's actually just a boring and empty song.
To me, he's a juvenile whiner, not an artist.
But maybe he'll do good in 10 years.
But hey, it's just music..
A fine song, I'll give it my first "9"
I for one do like the voice, very nice sound all around.
I wonder if the reason why so many people start off liking this album (and then don't),
I wonder if it's because it reminds them of some ex-lover, you know how that goes.
