U2's entire discography versus David Bowie's Blackstar Album
« on: February 06, 2021, 01:21:40 PM »
In the spirit of An Tha's silly "Bowie's entire discography versus SOE" I figured I'd start a poll comparing U2's entire discography to Bowie's last record.

Is Blackstar better than every u2 album then?

Well it certainly has more critical acclaim than any u2 album, it holds higher scores on metacritic than any u2 album, it has higher ratings on rateyourmusic.com, anydecentmusic.com and besteveralbums.com than any u2 album, but i personally just marginally prefer 1 maybe 2 u2 albums to it.

No matter how good Blackstar is, I donít see how it could compete with U2ís entire body of work.

Which makes it 2 ridiculous polls comparing U2 with Bowie, now.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I love Blackstar and it deserves all of the praise that it receives

However U2's 80's and 90's work are untouchable

On this I remain a mountain

and if you are an Eagle i hope you find comfort in me 
and if you are the Eagles prey, i hope to facilitate your demise

Never even heard Blackstar. I don't think I've heard any Bowie material newer than Let's Dance. Pretty good song, though. Guy's going places.

Not accurate because those scores are formed from smaller samples of people as opposed to the massive album sales totals, Grammy awards totals amassed by several U2 albums as well as tickets sold for tours promoting those albums.

All a result of one comment I made in a different thread.
