U2 hasn't put out a great album since AB

Don't get me wrong, I love the band, but I have not truly enjoyed any of their work since AB. That was the last great album. I am proud they still have a career and are on tour, but the output since AB has been less than stellar, and while I own all those albums I never play them. Maybe 2 or 3 good songs on each one, then eehhhh, next CD.

Are there any other fans here willing to admit this is true?

Woo...daring post around here, where the prevailing "wisdom" is that Zooropa & Pop are masterpieces. But I tend to agree. Up to and including AB I would frequently play all of U2's albums all the way through, without skipping any tracks; nothing since then is on that level. Sad but true.

Zooropa and HTDAAB are great albums, not as great as AB, but most time I enjoy them as much. However I think that Pop is as good as AB and, at times, I believe that Pop is even better than AB, especially live. (Pop worshipper here! )

I think that where you wrote 'AB', you meant to write 'Passengers'.

I think he actually meant to write "U2 hasn't put out a great album since The Clash's London Calling".




Which came out a year previous to Boy.

Nah, ever since recording technology was invented, music has sucked. It was only great when it was folk music played around a camp fire in Siberia in the 1400s.

Bomb is the only U2 record that I'm not crazy about.

I like them all, as well. Some more than others, but I still own them all and love them all.
