U2 — Ordinary Love (single)

The A side is great. Reminds me of Electrical Storm, in that it is well written and easy to listen to on its own, catchy and interesting. I liked the production values, and then I read it was produced by Danger Mouse. Cool beans.

The B side is not great. It’s an interesting take on “Breathe”, but I just can’t get past the distortion on Bono’s sibilants. It makes the song sound like filler. I get that it’s supposed to sound stripped down, like a campfire song or something, but that sibilant distortion is just so bad.
