Fire. Broken glass. Giant women with sexy legs. No, this site has not been taken over by a horny 14-year old, but that’s what you see in U2’s new video for “Get On Your Boots”. What would otherwise be a pretty routine performance clip gets jazzed up by these special effects.
The video’s pretty cool. As for the song itself, I’m still not 100% sold. Even though “Boots” is certainly not the first time that U2 has plagiarized itself, this song sounds just a bit too close to “Vertigo” for my tastes. It’s not bad, it’s just not great, and it certainly lessens my anticipation for “No Line on the Horizon”. Hopefully it won’t be a mess of “Pop” or “Zooropa” proportions.
Ah well, I’ll be buying it regardless. Let us know what you think of the video.
