U2 is losing its grip with reality



U2_boy The new single by U2, Get on Your Boots, has slipped out onto the Internet, and Times pop music critic Sean Daly has it posted on his blog. Click here to give it a listen.

My first impression: It sounds like a 14-year-old Bono has joined a marginally bad Monkees cover band that only performs songs composed by a drunken Bob Dylan. Yeah, it sucks.

Will the rest of No Line on the Horizon sound similarly awful? We'll find out March 3.
