madonna vs u2

well not really vs each other. My gf had madonna on the other day . It occured to me that they had alot in common. From the 80's. been around 3 decades , had same amount of albums, same lead singer . But also had many ups and downs. Like how alot of people soured on thier last albums. (commericaly and criticaly). They also have thier apperent copy cat artists. (gaga and coldplay). They have been loved and hated. Sometimes at the same time. Both more or less have never been completely off the rader . (not seeing a madonna/u2 package tour at ampitheaters with 20 dollar lawn seats anytime soon). I should have respect for madonna lasting this long if im gonna respect u2 for the same thing. no? yes?

same lead singer? madonna's a solo artist, that makes no sense. nloth wasn't a strong seller compared to their past two albums (though i'd argue with the climate today it sold well, especially without a big hit) but it wasn't a flop with critics. even looking at mdna's reviews it hasn't been raked over the coals. its aggregate score isn't much lower than nloth's, though neither are considered to have mixed reviews.

using this criteria, you could compare any two artists who have managed to stay huge for decades.

While I am a big fan of Madonna and a huge fan of U2, U2 still wins for me. They still continue to kick ass musically and touring-wise. Madonna's another touring powerhouse but her tickets are much more expensive and she has faced plenty of controversy and backlash recently. Her albums have gotten somewhat crappier over the years as well.

For me, U2 wins, even if they are in a whole different category.
