Its a different band purposely doing something different.  Side project.  Not canon. ;D

I understand your point... it's fair.  But then you can legitimately say Pop U2 was a different band than JT U2 in the same sense...

With Passengers they just had Eno as an official band member instead of producing.  Minor difference.  It does belong in the canon   ;)

We will agree to disagree, but to your point, a band can make musical shifts stylistically but the band name doesn't change and the band members don't necessarily change.  With Passengers, both did.  There are quotes of the band stating specifically that Passengers isn't U2, that it is its own project.   Cheers!

Still disagree. But that's OK as you are entitled to your opinion, as everyone is.

I think the point is largely irrelevant. If U2 deside not to call it a U2 record then it isn't a U2 record. However the members of U2 were mostly responsible for it backed up by quite a few other people. Much like a U2 record then!

Only on a fan site could people be splitting hairs this much..!

Some of my least favorite:

Get on Your Boots - what were they thinking?
The Playboy Mansion- cringe-inducing garbage
Miami - how did this get allowed on the album?
Mofo - U2 in-name only. 
Crazy Tonight - annoying

I'm in pain, but I respect your opinion. What do you mean by "U2 in-name only."?

Completely agree. Although Miami isn't really amazing, I can still respect it since they pushed their boundaries a bit and experimented. Can't really say that for all of their bad 2000s songs (which is most of them.)

I think I was exaggerating just a little, but it's the electronic production that strays way too far from U2's sound in my opinion.  I know a lot of people on the forum like it though.  It seems to have a bit of cult following.

Yeah, I recently removed PM from my Pop playlist. I saw them play Miami live in Vienna, and it was amazing. But the album version is hard for me to listen to.

New York and Miami.  As a West Coaster, maybe its fitting that these songs are horrible.

But California is worse than both, and I'm from there!
