The New U2 Single Sucks (Updated)
January 20, 2009, 10:39 pm

The main riff is OK.  But the bridge and the chorus are weak.  And there is something terribly unsexy about the way Bono sings “sexy boots”.  That line alone ruins the song.

{Update:  It is growing on me.  The “sexy boots” line is still very unsexy.  But the song is slowly growing on me.  I initially hated the Vertigo single.  I was dumbfounded by how shit it sounded when I heard it on the radio.  But now I like it.  I can only hope that the music video for Boots is better than the Vertigo video.  That remains an irredeemable piece of shit.}

I agree. The song is pretty terrible. When I first heard it I thought I might be hearing an old single I hadn’t heard before that was used for a Merrell Streep movie. So far it hasn’t really grown on me.

Also, the vertigo video is very cool, in my opinion.
