Simple choice.

Lets assume the Vertigo tour is done and dusted. what next for u2...would you rather see em put all their effort into producing a superb album but maybe take a bit longer than normal and foresake a tour, or another (by their standards) average effort and a tour? While there are few things to rival a live u2 experience, i think I would love to see em produce a killer album.

Thats called having your cake AND eating it!
The whole point of the question is, which is more important to my fellow u2ers?

They can produce a killer album and have a superb tour to boot. It will be called the "You can have your cake and eat it too" tour.

I guess I'd go for a killer album because anybody can get maximum enjoyment out of a killer album whereas a killer tour is never quite the same unless you're actually there.

I'd take the killer album, but who says it would be a better album just because they spend more time working on it?

an album and a tour similar to Vertigo, as long as im smart enough to get GA seats and get in line during the wee hours of the morning (i was a U2 newbie when vertigo rolled around here, and my seats sucked horribly)

anyways...i'd take a super freakin good album, and just a great tour (as opposed to an EXCELLENT tour)

I agree. The longer they spend on it, the more likely they are to pick it apart and spit out another over-polished album.

But anyway, I'd rather have a great album than an average album and tour.
