I don't think they have a terrible album, but they regularly have albums where 1/2 the album is pretty bad.

Last 1/2 of ATYCLB (WILATW is the only redeeming quality and GBHF wasn't on the album in the US)
Last 1/2 of HTDAAB (OOTS is the only redeeming quality)
1/2 of NLOTH is terrible - I dislike the last 2/3 except Fez and Breathe
I also don't like at least 1/2 the songs in Zooropa

October
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

The latter is easily the most overrated work they've ever done IMO. Few solid songs at the start but the second half is garbage. SOI is so much more consistent than either HTDAAB or NLOTH.

Man and a Women ,Crumbs , One step , Original of the species , Yahweh  garbage  ?

Really ?

oh absolutely. esp. the ones you listed....

ill take Vertigo, COBL, SYCMIOYO and skip the rest.

I guess they need to give their 9 Grammy awards back for their ROCKless , uninspired album.

Oh no... Please don't make me point out AGAIN that 'who let the dogs out?' won a Grammy.

I mean surely by now we can all agree that the grammys mean as much as, well, the emmys.

ATYCLB and HTDAAB, U2 by numbers, middle of the road pap. If I ever have to listen to Stuck In a Moment again I think I'll end it all.

^This.  ATYCLB is seriously the most uninspiring U2 record I can think of.  About half of the songs on HTDAAB are good...the other half meh...and the title sucks.  I don't get the overall theme of the album...what does the title have to do with any overarching concept that the songs push?  ATYCLB is rubbish, and I can accept that...even the standout single from the album "Beautiful Day" feels WAY to poppy and "written for radio play" to me.  ATYCLB was written as a reaction to the reception of POP...which in retrospect was a daring chance of an album that really worked and has probably gained a lot more favorability as the years wear on.  ATYCLB is the inverse...to me it has lost favor as the years wore on because it was written "for the moment"...POP was way ahead of its time and was a bit hindered by a rough tour. 

HTDAAB is frustrating because it has some good tunes, but overall it just shouldn't be an album; Uno, Dos, Tres, Quartorze bothers the pi*s out me as well.

Agreed, how can anyone say OTS and Crumbs are garbage!! couple of bad songs on the album that is all.

I do agree that ATYCLB overall is a one of their worst albums and one I rarely listen to anymore, wild honey, GBHF, Grace are uninspiring even elevation is a poor song.

The other for me is NLOTH - sorry!

neither are crap / garbage though!

Interesting how there is little mention of pop. It has been hammered over the years as a failure, but in retrospect they could and have done worse. I love pop.  My least favorite are NOTH and ATYCLB.

For me it's NLOTH and ATYCLB. Maybe Passengers if it counts.
