Can someone please.....

Set up a poll that is something 80's vs something 00's???? Why does it have to ALWAYS be the 90's albums? The 80's albums shit all over the 00's just as easily, can't we argue on that front?

That WOULD be interesting!

But then what if we ended up witnessing Bomb defeat JT or UF or War? Then I'd be depressed.

I don't know about 'shitting all over' but I think the 80s albums are definitely better than the 00s ones!

See, I'm not even so sure about that. There may be some albums from the 80s that could be considered eons better than ATYCLB and HTDAAB, but there are quite a few that can't. I know this is just based on personal taste, but I'd take HTDAAB over Boy, October, and Rattle & Hum any day. Maybe even over certain JT songs (I seem to be one of the few people who find a lot of the JT material to be rather bland.) Now of course, War, UF, and certain aspects of JT piss all over HTDAAB and ATYCLB. ATYCLB in particular. But I still wouldn't say that the 80s were tremendously stronger than the 00s. I feel that they're only marginally better.

How about the daddies:

JT v AB

or even "Battle of the Decades"

80s v 90s v 00s

or...

JT v AB v HTDAAB
ie, the definitive (so far) albums of those decades

See? And yet we never talk about it. It's only ever Miami vs fucking Yahweh or some other stupid thing. (Miami kicks Yahweh).

I dare someone to try and convince me that HTDAAB is as good as or better than The Unforgettable Fire.

TUF's title track alone owns Bomb.

I'm sure it will be just as productive as the last 2 polls.

Arguing about this shit is like arguing about...religion...or something. You're not going to change anyone's mind. It's one thing to have an interesting, civil discussion, but that's not going to happen

I was thinking that you might with the 80s because it's harder for some people to jump back into their "90s fan" mode.

Boy vs HTDAAB may be interesting, especially considering how much Bono talks about the two albums being connected.

I may just make that as a poll.

True. I think it would be a lot more interesting to look at the 80s vs the 00s, simply because of some of the similarities that both eras share. It really is impossible to try to compare Pop to ATYCLB or Zooropa to HTDAAB. In fact, it's rather fucking stupid to try. They're on such opposite sides of the musical spectrum that you'll always get one group who'll favour one musical form over the other, and it'll just be the same old arguments over and over again.

And I'm of the opinion that anyone who thinks HTDAAB is better than The Unforgettable Fire - or even on par with UF - must be utterly delusional.

Boy vs Bomb? It's sorta been done before.

War vs Bomb would be soooo much more interesting.

Well, I've done Boy vs HTDAAB anyway: http://forum.interference.com/t150722.html

Hell, I'll make War vs HTDAAB if you lot really, really want it as well.

Or, you could just read these threads over again:

http://forum.interference.com/t150485.html

It'll wind up being the same thing.

Not necessarily. I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a U2 fan who thinks October is better than HTDAAB!

I have never seen such an incredibly annoying wise-cracking baby in my life before joining this forum!
