New U2!!!!!!

| Filed under: Bono

wenn1769116.jpg

U2 have just released their new single and…..

Unfortunately, it's quite disappointing!

Get On Your Boots sounds like a bad song from the '60s. It sounds more like a B side than a big "comeback" single.

It is NOT what U2 does best, big anthemic power pop/rock.

Sad!

Check out Get On Your Boots (below).

What do U think of the song????

    It sounds a little like their theme for Batman Forever with a little INXS thrown in. Definitely not a jumping up and down in the stadium song, but it can be catchy. They can do no wrong!

    Bono shades for EVERBODY! YEAH!

    To all the people who I like you and who like me. Big Boss, LaDiva, SherMoon and many others. I have had enough Assume The Position stalking, and all the hatred, fighting and insanity here. I wish all the people who were nice to me all the best.

    Hate those glasses ..



  13. 13

    Hate those glasses



  14. 14

    I agree that its not one of their best, but they're not in need of a "comeback single," Perez. They are huge, and as always, completely amazing.



  15. 15

    I've found that with U2 songs, it usually takes a few listens to really appreciate the artistry. Give it time. Excited for the new album!!



  16. 16

    they should just stop.

    Re: orchidgirl – I don't know Assume the Position personally, but I think he/she is, what ever, soooo rude and mean generally. better way is just to ignore them.

    it does sound silly.



  22. 22

    So not only are you a civil/gay rights activist…you're now a music critic. Good job!!! just concoct some stinky perfume and you'll be j-lo, a self serving self loathing scum ball that has to &%#* on everyone and everything to feel better about yourself. LEAVE U2 alone they are truly musicians that have made a much bigger mark on the world than everyone you "report" on combined. Stick to Lady GAGA and shut the F up!!!!

  32. 32

    I'm not feelin it. I usually love everything by U2, but this is just bad.

    Shut the eff up Perez. Just cause U2 is not one of your precious hurt my ears Jonas Bros…

    By the way your book sucks.

    Re: _Alice_ – It was just Moon and I this weekend….Its always nice to see Alice pop-up…. ( . ) ( . ) ….. :o )



  46. 46

    i'm a big U2 fan so i have2 say i like it but i donno about the boots part



  47. 47

    They can't please everybody! Kudos to them for trying a new angle. Do I love it? Not yet, but it'll probably get into my head nevertheless… it's a very "retro" and upbeat sound.



  48. 48

    HOW DIFFERENT CAN YOU BE,IF YA,LL HAVE TO WEAR SAME S.GLASSES….



  49. 49

    they suck. they should retire and be grandpas



  50. 50

    god this sounds so much like living in the wild wild west



  51. 51

    that song is not the least bit 60's, perez. you need a little more immersion in musical history before you make assessments like that. it's really a 70's style fusion with a little radiohead darkness in places.



  52. 52

    Re: highAboveManHttn

    great minds think alike!
    i was just thinking the same thing.

    Music evolves, if they went with the same sound as they did on their old albums everyone would be complaining about it too.
    We obviously have a lot of coldplay fans here . . . . .

    Re: _Alice_ – I'm still send you a fruit basket.



  56. 56

    good maybe people will start seeing how incredibly overrated they are. Give me a break!



  57. 57

    Damn I love these guys. This is disappointing. I agree, no to the power/rock.



  58. 58

    HEY PEREZ! PUT LINDSAY LOHAN WITH "LA NIÑA MEDEIROS" FROM THE MOVIE [REC] IN SEPARATED AT BIRTH



  59. 59

    most u2 takes time to grow on you…

    that said, i miss the 80's and 90's u2



  60. 60

    Re: LizardKinG – I can't wait!



  61. 61

    I occasionally, listen to some of the music you post in here Perez. Though most of it is Jonah's, some good electro, and then some Euro Bubble Gum Electro that just sucks.
    The song takes one or two good listens before it gets in your head like most U2 songs.
    People said the same thing when U2 went from Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby.
    Secondly, you are by far one of the worst music critic. If he's cute and she has drama all over or if the song is bubble gum then you post it and give it positive reviews not taking into account meaning of lyrics and that the "artist" actually took the time to write and compose.
    Your music circus is of pop people who all sound the same. They will probably be a 1 or 2 song hit wonder(s). Consequently, your blog will probably stretch their careers 15 more mins.

    62

    Weak.



  63. 63

    Perez your a fat fuck who thinks too highly of your own opinion, what do you know of music production? All you do is reprint other journalist's articles, and that makes you????? A rabbit who lives in Paris Hiltons ass crack..no one cares what you think….



  64. 64

    Perez, you know absolutely nothing about music, therfore you shouldn't go criticizing anyone's music.



  65. 65

    Sounds fantastic to me.



  66. 66

    You are an idiot Perez. If you listen to their albums BEFORE The Joshua Tree, you will know the never did "big anthemic power pop/rock". Pea brain.

  67. Kate says – reply to this


    67

    This isn't a 'comeback' album though. They never disappeared. It's been what, 4 years since How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb?? Far cry from needing a comeback. It's not that bad. I don't hate it as much as I hated Popmart but I don't love it like I love Actung Baby or The Joshua Tree.



  68. 68

    The "sexy boots" part sounds funny - not like U2. But, I like the rest. It does sound a little like old INXS.



  69. 69

    Me Like-ee.



  70. 70

    it's sad, because the MUSIC is good, but not the singing. or the lyrics. *tear*



  71. 71

    Perez, you are wrong again!

    This is rocking!!! Being a gossip blogger does not make you a music critic as you just proved!



  72. 72

    i thinks its good like ok good
    but i am a fan of uz and it will deffinately grow on me



  73. 73

    Ouch. That sucks pretty hard. And not in a good way.



  74. 74

    What are you talking about Perez? This is a great tune. I think your mind is biased by listening to all of that bubblegum disco stuff that you frequently post here.

    LOVE IT!!!!



  75. 75

    not their best song, this is true, but it's certainly better than 99% of the crap that perez tries to promote. serious, what is up with all these lame wannabe 80s bands with no concept of being original that perez thinks are so great, theyre not great, in fact they suck balls. all these stupid bands of today cannot think for themselves, they just steal what was 20 years ago because the audience is too young to remember the 80s. here is a clue, kids, they did the 80s right the first time around, they dont need you to reinterpret it.
    same with lady googoogagag, or whatever the hell her name is. do you think anyone is going to give a shit about her in 5 years? 10 years? shes just some no talent flash in the pan fashion show. take away the image, and theres nothing there.

    the chorus is a disappointment the rest is pretty cool

    IT'S BETTER THAN "THE CLAP" …

    This song sucks hard….

    perez, you need to take your midol today! you've bitched about nearly everything, shit!

    I like it, actually– :)

    Re: _Alice_ – Being number 1 is the best part of your day isnt it? So sad.



  83. 83

    i like u2 and they do have a few good songs but this is not one of them!!
    Are they ever going to run out of songs??



  84. 84

    I think its cool! Most of their songs are boring…..Check out my song 80s child. Its similar at www.myspace.com/aronblankenburg



  85. 85

    THATS A STEAL OF PUMP IT UP BY ELVIS COSTELLO, YA'ALL



  86. 86

    its ok.. average. They are HUGE hitmakers so i would expect more from them..



  87. 87

    Re: orchidgirl – this is a hater sight, where you can spew out your hatred for people you dont even know. its great



  88. 88

    If the new U2 cd is only half as good as the opinion's as the band members seem to have of themselves, it should be, well, I don't know, the last great U2 cd was Joshua Tree.



  89. 89

    Perez, I agree with what a few of the posters said above: U2 is in no need of a huge comeback song. They are as big as they have always been, and the song is still far above and beyond anything you've posted as a new music find. I happen to like the song and know it will do well for them. Their sound always evolves with each album, so you should not have been expecting the same thing.



  90. 90

    Perez, you should really NOT give your opinion on anything! You are too subjective and ignorant!



  91. 91

    I just have to say that this band has been around for over 20 years. They've never had to make a comeback. As many have pointed out, U2 is not a first listen type of band and never have been. Twice or third time and you can't get it out of your head. As several people have pointed you praise 'artists' who will never be remembered. Their careers will not be 25-30-40 years. No one will be pulling out the disc to listen to those 'artists' ever again. U2 is AMAZING and I LOVE this song. Can't wait for the album!

    92

    I like U2 a lot, but that song was terrible.



  93. 93

    IT'S THE BEATS! KILLER TOFU!!!!!!!!!



  94. 94

    A rip off of a lot of recent Simple Minds songs. Then again, they've copied them since the 80's. I know ye will will laugh but it is so true. In 1985 Simple Minds were bigger than U2, but ye are probably too young to remember ;-(
    Anybody here know SM? no, not THAT SM lol



  95. 95

    I'm sure they figured now that Coldplay completely hijacked their act they have to distinguish themselves…AGAIN. I feel bad for them.



  96. 96

    I love it! It is a bit funky and different from the sound on their previous two albums. It sounds like they are again playing around with the techno sound (reminds me of the Pop album). But that is what I like about U2 - they don't put out the same sound over and over again. Any time they deviate from the basic rock sound they demonstrated on the Joshua Tree, people freak out. If you are a hardcore U2 fan then you love their B-sides. That is where they get the most creative and really branch out. This reminds me of that and I love it! Good job guys!



  97. 97

    I think it sounds FRESH!!!!

    Why put out more of the expected to bore us with? I love the Queen-esqe vocals on the chorus.



  98. 98

    I think it sounds FRESH!!!!

    Why bore with more of the same? I love the Queen-esqe Chorus harmonies.



  99. 99

    Sorry on this one Perez, your opinion sucks. What, was every single album they've released since 1980 a "Comeback" album? They've been releasing albums, to worldwide huge sales, for like 30 years, and have never "gone away" to require "coming back." And the pop side of them is relatively new to begin with - their original stuff sounded more punk. They kind of can do no wrong, in my eyes.



  100. 100

    *AHEM* to all you haters posting on the fact that they're wearing matching glasses: it was a screening of U2-3D. for PR purposes, they had to take pics wearing their fancy 3D glasses on the red carpet. big fuckin' DEAL! u2 rules forever.
