No. EATB only wrote 2 good songs and their singer is a dick. Not that bono isnít a dick but u2 have blatantly written many better tunes

Two good songs?

Let me see. Ocean Rain. On Villier's Terrace. Bring on the Dancing Horses. The Killing Moon. The Cutter. The Back of Love.  Seven Seas. Lips Like Sugar. There's eight off the top of my head.

Not sure about better than anything u2 have recorded - but it is a very fine album.

For my money EATB had a stronger cannon than u2 early doors.

Crocodiles > Boy
Heaven up Here > October
Porcupine > War

TUF and Ocean Rain is very very close.

Those first 4 albums came out in the same years.

Yes I agree, there's a strong argument EATB in the early years, say pre-1987, were simply a better band that U2.

I disagree.

U2 were a way better live band and songs such as NYD, Drowning Man, Bad, ASOH, The Promenade to name but a few leave anything EATB have done in the dust

All went wrong in the late 80's with Mac leaving then the death of de Freitas....what followed was never the same.

I'd be willing to bet you've never listened to most of the songs I named, let alone an entire EATB album.
