Poll: What measure of U2 greatness do fans expect? (58 member(s) have cast votes)

What kind of album would you be happy with?

  1. Any album will do, I just want to hear some new music, it doesn't have to be great (11 votes [16.92%])

    Percentage of vote: 16.92%

  2. I would prefer more regular albums, even if the songs are just good/mediocre and not great (5 votes [7.69%])

    Percentage of vote: 7.69%

  3. I'm happy to wait a little while longer for a great album of songs but it better be really great at this rate! (34 votes [52.31%])

    Percentage of vote: 52.31%

  4. I want it to be their greatest album to date, I expect nothing less, no matter how long it takes (15 votes [23.08%])

    Percentage of vote: 23.08%

Bono says "very good is the enemy of great" and  U2's audience expect their new album to be "great"  

 

What do you think? cast your vote and let's see if he's right about the fans!  ;)

 

(PS. It is multiple choice so you can click more than one option if you want)

I don't care what kind of album we get, I JUST WANT AN ALBUM, AND I WANT IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

I'll wait...I wouldn't say that I'm happy about waiting.  But I'll wait....as long as they are not just over-thinking it.

I have the 5th option: it will be a great album because EVERY U2 album is a great album!

The problem with "good" and "great" is that they're going to be interchangeable anyway, depending on the listener!

They're taking too long, which suggests another disappointment tbh....

Now, we can hopefully state that No Line is this Era's Rattle and HUM..a transitional album to the Greater Pearl !

I'll wait, sort of. Well I would have waited, but have waited long enough and now just want some music!

I'm not holding out... They're generally better at song-writing when under pressure. What I really want is the Rattle & Hum Remaster...

You are right you know but we can't predict what they might be conceiving...we'll decide how the song writing was when we hear it...and for that we have to wait (that's  the only thing we really DO know:that we have to wait).

I really want the album but I really want the Rattle-Remastered&DeLuxe too !

About the writing under the pressure..maybe they should have started to write when Bono was going crazy all over the media with his Irrelevancy speech...but then again, instead of confronting the pressure, he went to Africa and then on vacation ...

I didnt mind No Line. It was much more atmospheric and I think sometimes when things are overproduced and over thought it can be bad but No Line was a solid album for me

NLOTH was a great album it was just marketed badly and had poor single choices plus it was overshadowed by the 360 tour which essentially became a Greatest Hits tour and took a completely different identity to that of the album it should have been promoting.

 

The 360 tour was stunning but it kind of took all the attention away from the fact they had made music which was a lot better than it ever got credit for.
