REVIEWS

******
alles von "Achtung baby!" ist geil!
*****
...sehr gut...
******
Das war ihre beste Zeit.
*****
ganz gut
****
Sehr flotte Nummer und deutlich besser als z.B. "the Fly", aber dennoch nicht ganz auf dem Niveau der besten Songs von "Achtung Baby" oder generell der besseren Lieder der Band, darum nur eine abgerundete 4 von mir.
****
dito, nicht schlecht, aber U2 haben bessere songs!
****
...durchschnitts-U2-Song...
*****
mag ich gut
*****
Sehr schön - geht in die Kategorie von Gone, Until the end of the world oder Last night on earth
****
dito Mister X
******
da geb ich doch mal ne 6. einer ihrer coolsten hit
*****
Tolle Nummer, aber nicht eine ihrer besten!
*****
Cool
****
▓ Een goede plaat van "U2" uit juni 1992 !!! Ook deze plaat werd een Top 10 "Hit" voor de Topband !!! De plaat bleef 8 weken (# 8) in de Nederlandse Top 10, wat voor "U2" iets te laag is !!! Net geen 5 sterren !!!
*****
ja, ist okay, aber diese gruppe hat mehr drauf! ich mag ihn trotzdem=)
***
für eine kultnummer versdammt dünn..

****
Sehr durchschnittlich... Muss man nicht unbedingt kennen, wenn man einen guten Song von U2 hören will.
**
sehr schwach...
******
geiler song,doch live ist er um einige klassen besser.
Last edited: 29.06.2007 18:45

die großen U2 mit einem weiteren Langweiler Hit
***
Gefällt mir weniger gut.
****
Für U2 eine eher schwächer, unbedeutende Nummer. #7 in I, #10 in S, #12 in GB, #28 in D und #34 in F.
*****
When U2 was turning disco... Le remix par Oakenfold est un must-dance des années 90.
****
gut
***
naja, mit gutem willen eine 3
**
völlig konzept- und belanglos
******
Griffiger Sound - für eine vierte Single-Auskopplung mit beachtlichem Potenzial. Even better now than at the time.
Last edited: 19.05.2014 18:13

Na ja - eher Mittelmaß. Gibt weit bessere Songs auf dem Album.
*****
eine der sehr guten nummern... kracher gitarre!
Last edited: 01.03.2008 23:01
******
Um einiges besser als der Opener vom Album, für mich erst der richtige Anfang ... ^^
***
Eher langweilig
****
Gehobener U2-Durchschnitt
****
Cool track and opening single for 'Achtung Baby'
****
Eher durchschnittlicher Track. Für U2-Verhältnisse klingt der Song sogar ziemlich einfallslos.
****
Eine ihrer gelungenen Singles.
*****
gut
****
Muy buena.
****
Gut +4
****
Knapp überdurchschnittliches poppiges Gerocke von "U2".
Der Song treibt ziemlich nice & slow dahin ohne groß zu überraschen. ****
****
4e single van Achtung Baby. Lekker uptempo rock song. Destijds werd op MTV (toen dat nog een echte muziekzender was) ook een alternatieve discoversie gedraaid, die heeft ook een aparte videoclip. Die versie staat op de DVD ''Best of 1990-2000'' en is zeker ook de moeite waard!!!
*****
den Track fand ich richtig gut - okay hat Längen
****
4+

CDN: #3, 1992
USA: #32, 1992

Gefiel mir vor 20 Jahren noch etwas besser als heute,
aber alles in allem einfach grundsolide Wertarbeit von
ihnen....

4 +
**
schwach
***
I don't mind it so much but as a lead single, it fails to impress.

Cool song with some nifty guitar work and beat. Like mysterious ways there's a feeling of sexuality in the song.
Last edited: 09.09.2013 09:19
****
für U2-Verhältnisse sehr Disco-/Synthi-lastig – aber etwas anderes zu probieren schadet nie – ansprechende Scheibe aus anfangs der 90er – 4+…
****
Gesang könnte besser sein, musikalisch aber definitiv ein guter Song der Iren. Abgerundete 4*
***
Bin kein Fan der Jungs, nur wenige Nummern haben mir je wirklich gefallen.
****
Very good but not their best.
****
Quite good.
**
nichts besonderes
****
Vierte Single aus "Achtung Baby", fällt nicht weiter negativ auf ohne Höhepunkte zu haben.
****
Recht gute Platte.
****
Even closer to the midfield.
*****
etwas schwächer als der opener aber dennoch sehr gut


die remix version fand ich grottig
*****
Nachdem ich U2 dank Alben wie "The Unforgettable Fire" und "The Joshua Tree" schätzen gelernt hatte, lag mir 1991 ihr damals neustes Material relativ quer in den Ohren, auch dieser flotte Song. Gefällt mir inzwischen gut, besonders das markante Gitarrenspiel von The Edge. Satte 5*.
****
Ok
*
Bagger.
****
..gut aber nur duchrschnittlich gut...
****
nicht der gewohnte grosse Reisser
******
Prima muziek van U2.
****
... gut ...
****
Hörenswert (4+)
****
Een prima en typisch U2-nummerke, uit 1991 !!! Niet écht hun grootste hit, maar dat maakt ook niks uit, want het is gewoon een steengoed nummer !!! 😏
**
Nicht mein Fall.
***
nicht so mein Fall...
***
wenig überzeugend
