Bono.

Plus they have recently gone for long two year plus tours and I think the perceived 'failure' of Pop has made them cautious of releasing a Zooropa type album.

Laziness? Perfectionism? Family commitments? Bono hobnobbing with the rich and powerful around the globe? Other commitments?

Probably a little bit of truth to all of them, really.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Forget "to be or not to be", what you've just asked really is THE question.

And I'll take three albums in one year which would open up a large bitchfest for the fact that they haven't taken enough time on their work.

How about: Because they went on a long world tour and did a lot of other stuff? In fact, they didn't work 4 years on the album, more like 2 years, and that isn't really long.

I think a sense of sarcasm was lost in this post. I don't think it really has been too long at all - taking into account that they did have four legs of a world tour. It's a simple case of time flying when you are saving the world.

Better than they make an album every two years which turns out to be crap. Does it help the thread if Larry said he wanted another album out soon?
