$100 says there will be no U2 album of new material in 2013.
Any takers ?
I don't think U2 can afford NOT to put out something in 2013 (or before).
"afford" monetarily or "afford" artistically.
They haven't given a crap about artistic integrity since Pop.
And how do you know that? Which member of the band are you? How can you say they don't care? It's pretty bold to attack an artist's integrity with such a shallow statement.
I think the albums released since Pop speak to the point made by JTbaby. I wouldn't necessarily say that they don't give a crap about artistic integrity, but it's certainly not foremost in their minds and it shows. Just listen to songs like SUC.
Well obviously they had songs that are just straight crap, but it's not like their whole albums since Pop are void of artistic integrity, that's going too far.
I wouldn't go as far as to say their void of artistic integrity; I'm actually listening to NLOTH as I type this. There are definetly some good tunes since Pop. I just don't think artistic integrity is as paramount as it once was for U2.
I can agree with you on that. But for JTBaby to say they haven't given a crap at all since Pop is not true and unfair to U2.
Boo hoo. HTDAAB is completely void. ATYCLB was a retreat to please the masses. NLOTH had potential but they bottled.
ATYCLB is terrible, you're right. It's my least favorite album by them.
HTDAAB is not void, but it's definitely an improvement on ATYCLB.
NLOTH is actually pretty good. But SUC, Boots, and I'll Go Crazy have few to no redeeming qualities. It did have potential to be great, but having 'Boots as your lead single killed most people's opinion of it. Nonetheless, I think it's their best album this decade.
