They should just hang it up at this point. I can live with Love Is Bigger and 13 being their last songs, they’re a nice thematic pair to go out on.

If you think it’s going to get better at this point, you’re delusional.

I've never understood U2 fans who "think the band should hang it up". Sounds more like a non-fan or someone who hates the band.

No, sounds like someone who has realized the band is done doing anything fresh or uncompromised. SOE, as great as its songs were, had so many additional musicians, particularly on guitar, that the writing is on the wall for anyone paying attention.

The songs on SOE were great?

If they're as uninspired in terms of their instrumentation and songwriting as they seem to be, they really should hang it up. No slight on their legacy or value to music, but I don't want to see a band I love dig themselves in deeper.

i think the band should have hung it up after the 360 tour but that doesn't have any effect on how much i love their earlier music.

I think 6 or 7 that are great tunes. I don't always agree with the instrumentation or production, but that's pretty good considering their age.

So what makes you the judge of when an artist needs to give up doing their work because their, "no good at it anymore"? Are you in a band? What songs have you written and recorded?

Since when do you have to be a certain age to write great tunes?

I'd pay good money to see Bono attempt Hawkmoon without some kid holding up cue cards in front of him. This being in reference to a hypothetical homage to Lovetown in Australia this year.


I'm just kidding. I wouldn't pay a cent.

What makes him the judge is that he is, ya know, the judge of his own opinions. He's allowed to have them. If they aren't your opinions, that's cool. You don't have to be on board.

I hate to say this, but you've gotta be some kind of hard case to join a U2 fan forum in 2019.
