So, you'd say that I am above average? Excellent.

Don't get it. You really don't make any sense at all to me.

Our game is over, mods, sorry for prolonging the bickering...

I'd say this release will be remembered as quite average. At the time, it seemed pretty sweet, thanks to it's better songs such as The Angry Mob, Everything Is Average Nowdays, Love's Not A Competition (But I'm Winning), Retirement and Highroyds.

But there is so much autopilot filler on here that just really bores, Heat Dies Down, Thank You Very Much, Learnt My Lesson Well especially.

Their new album is much more interesting, though even that has average moments, yet not so overwhelmingly disappointing as Yours Truly, Angry Mob as a whole album.

This is about average albums, not shitty ones.

I'm the opposite, their new album is boring as hell. I've lost interest in them thanks to it. Yours Truly didn't age too well though. Employment is still a great album

I consider Bomb by far U2's most average album. It goes like this:

Fucking Awesome: Joshua Tree
Good: Boy, No Line, Achtung, Unforgettable Fire
Above Average: October, War
Average: Bomb
Failed Experiments: RAH, Zooropa, Pop
Shitty: ATYCLB

We disagree on all that far more than I figured we would.

The only U2 albums I would consider average are ATYCLB and October. The former because of a distinct lack of truly great material, and the latter because of its inconsistency.
