"Crap albums"

U2 have always said that after three crap albums, they would quit. With that in mind, when do you think they should have quit?

Boy
October
War
Under A Blood Red Sky
UF
WAIA
Joshua Tree
R&H
AB
Zooropa
Passengers
Pop
ATYCLB
HTDAAB

I don't think U2 have done that yet...they've always bounced back after a weak release, but I'm sure some of you will answer differently.

They need to bounce back now.

While I agree that they haven't made three truly crap albums, I always assumed Bono meant three crap albums IN A ROW

I'm actually pretty sure it was:

Two crap albums (in a row) and we/you're out!

He said two, not three.
And they made War, so he's full of it.

He said 2 crap albums and he is refering to the present tense U2 not the past.

With Zooropa being their only crap album to date I'd say they're going to be around for a while.

If it was 2 crap album titles and you're out, they'd definitely be out by now.

If they were so crappy ponkine wouldnt have spent the last 2 years trying to bash U2, he would have moved onto another band....some of us wish that he would.

It's because of people like ponkine that U2 continues to write great music and doesn't have the problem of making bad albums. So thank you ponkine for helping to keep the music fresh and inventive. Because of you U2 won't ever make two crap albums yet alone two in a row. So, thanks!

He says that, but do you think he'd ever call his own album a crap album?

Why not? Billy Joel was honest about it with The Bridge.

Remember, this is Bono we're talking about.
