It's strange to me that people either love this band to an obnoxious degree or hate them to death. U2 really are a good band, but I guess it's "cool" to hate them.

At the end of the day, they are a singles band. Their albums struggle too much with consistency. When I listen to a U2 album, there's typically two or three awesome tunes, half a dozen mediocre to good songs and a song or two that is terribly subpar. I do think The Unforgettable Fire is the exception to this rule as it holds up pretty well. The only weak track on that particular album is the one that Brian Eno forced them to put on the record, so I can forgive them for that misstep.

U2 (and Bono, specifically) are unfairly attacked by the world of music. To say that "The Joshua Tree" is not a miracle in the form of chords and lyrics is nothing short of treachery against the Kingdom of Good Music. So why the irrational hate? Is it the band's prominently flaunted Christian faith? Is it the fact that they're "on the radar" and the opposite of everything that encapsulates the hipster movement? Possibly. Either way, U2 is a fabulous band live and in the studio and are the creators of some of the most iconic songs of the past 35 years. To deny that truly hurts your credibility as a music fan in my eyes.

From SuedeSwede 01/22/2014 23:27
They are a greatest hits band with no consistent album. I think people are a bit irrational towards The Joshua Tree and subsequently they get a lot more hate than they should, but other than the two "hits" on The Joshua Tree, and maybe that other one, it's pretty poor. Same with Achtung Baby, it has that one "hit" and a few others.

Their only problem is consistency, as an overall band I actually think they're okay.

I've tried to understand why they are loved by so many. I certainly don't think they're terrible, they're a good band, no more, no less.
