Für einmal bin ich am anderen Ende der Bewertungen bei einem Lied der Iren. Mir gefällt das ausgezeichnet, war letztes Jahr oft mein Motto im Leben: irgendwie knapp dran und doch noch weit weg. Ruhiger Song, der mir mit der Zeit immer besser gefällt.
***
Gäääähn!
***
schon ein bisschen langweilig...
*****
...das beste Stück auf 'Zooropa', aufgerundete fünf...
******
Das beste Lied von U2. Das Video mit der Siegessäule ist dufte.
*****
sehr gut
****
Noch besser: die Acoustic Version von der Slane Castle DVD
****
ruhiges Stück ohne nennenswerte Höhepunkte
******
▒ Schitterende plaat van "U2" uit juli 1993 !!! Lekker rustig en nog altijd zeer mooi !!! Precies 5 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 8 wk / # 10) ☺!!!

@13-10-2011: Vooruit krap 6 sterren ☺!!!

Einer dieser für U2 typischen langsam wachsenden Song. Ab dem soundtrack zu "In weiter Ferne so nah - Far away so close". Für mich eine zeitlos schöne Ballade.
****
Nett anzuhören, aber nichts wirklich besonderes!
*****
sehr, sehr schön! hier bewiesen sie zum ersten mal ihre liebe (wie ich) zu berlin! allerdings die dublin live aufnahme ist die beste dieser nummer..

ääh... ja... Der Refrain ist ok, aber ansonsten kann man den Song echt nur zum einschlafen hören.
*
langweiliger Müll
*****
Nee, nee... nix langweilig und nix Müll... richtig guter Song!
****
Nicht das gelbe vom Ei.Geht so.
***
spielt belanglos vor sich hin
****
reißt einen nicht vom hocker, aber gut ist es schon
****
Good
*
Zum Glück lief der damals in meiner Ravetechnoeurodancephase völlig spurlos an mir vorbei. Katastrophisch langweilig!
******
Einer von nicht allzuvielen U2-Songs, die man wirklich als genial bezeichnen kann. Packender Rhythmus, sensationelle Melodie, auch toll gesungen. Hätte mehr Beachtung verdient gehabt.

^^. Dito. "Zooropa" wurde/wird viel zu viel unterschätzt, vielleicht ist den Leuten diese Musik einfach zu "hoch" um es auf gut österreichisch zu sagen.
******
einer meiner favoriten... als berliner ist ja klar?!
**
Schlecht
***
Okay
*****
Muy buena.
****
mmh geht gerade noch - stimmlich nicht so sehr gelungen
******
Genialer Gitarrenriff. Ich mags einfach. Groovt!

Geiler Song!!!.
****
knapp gut
****
Sehr liebliche, nette U2-Nummer im MidTempo-Sound. Treibt fein u. ohne zu stören u. groß aufzufallen dahin. Bono`s Gesang ist eine Klasse für sich u. die Gitarren bei U2 ebenso. ****
****
wenigstens kann man den hören, leider aber sich nicht groß daran erfreuen, zu ruhig, zu lahm
******
Masterpiece!
***
garantiert nicht - eine langweilige und trostlose Nummer aus 1993 - rockt keine Sekunde - 2.75...und zu lang ist der Song ebenfalls - knapp 5 Minuten Langeweile...
Last edited: 11.02.2010 21:59

Doesn't ring a big bell, quiet alright and boring.
****
Good one.
*****
"Numb" en "Lemon" waren slechts promotiesingles (dus niet voor de verkoop), maar in december 1993 verscheen dan toch nog een fysieke single van het album "Zooropa". mooie ballad!!!
******
Brilliant, definitely one of their best, possibly better than 'One' actually

langweilt ungemein
****
Die 90er-Sachen von U2 sind mehrheitlich nicht mein Fall. Dieser Song ist aber noch halbwegs gelungen. Recht schön, aber auch etwas plätscherig. Gute 4*.
****
Paradebeispiel für einen U2-Durchschnittssong - 4*
*****
This one is really good. Great guitar riff.
****
Good track.
*****
Yet another great ballad from U2, overshadowed on its release by their more experimental stuff.
**
verzichtbar
****
Wie dit nummer van U2 langdradig/saai/slecht noemt, heeft niet goed geluisterd.
Dit nummer is waarlijk fantastisch, geen seconde te lang, vol van emotie en gevoel, schitterende gitaarriff/tekst/zang en verveelt na 18 jaar nog lang lang niet. Puur genieten. Maakten de heren uit Ierland tegenwoordig maar nog van deze meesterstukjes.
4 sterren: enkel en alleen omdat ik dit niet tot de grootste klassiekers reken, puur kwaliteit is dit een 6 sterren.
******
Overheerlijk nummer.
****
völlig unspektakulär,

das war doch das video, wo bono mit einer frau in berlin singt ?!
***
mittelmäßig
****
Ok
**
Zwakjes.
**
das ist langweilig
****
Solid track.
****
Buena
***
... sehr ermüdend ...
****
OK, gerade so 4*
*****
Sehr gut
***
Plätschert leider nur so dahin.
***
Schwächerer, etwas lahmer, aber letztlich immer noch gemütlicher und angenehmer U2-Titel. Immerhin hatten sie sich damals noch nicht selbst demontiert, wie im folgenden Jahrtausend.

aktzeptable Nummer, aber auch nicht mehr

Wat een langdradig, saai en zielig nummer ...
****
Geht so, der Refrain ist ok, aber so richtig erreicht hat mich der Song nie! Da hatten sie doch soviel bessere wie ich finde!

War Ende 1993 für 2 Wochen eine #1 in Irland, in UK #4, FIN #5

Gefällt mir nicht.
