I know this is ooold news (their new single Precious was released last week), but I have to comment on it anyway. My iTunes shows me that the song has been played 11 times, and I must admit that it has grown. This song is, by far, the best material they have released since the release of Violator.
I was discussing the song with a friend of mine the other day, and we agreed that the only thing we didn't like was the guitar towards the end of the song.
I guess it is not only I who look forward to getting my hands on Playing The Angel on October 18. Or watching them live in Stockholm on March 1, 2006!
