Drywall tape coming loose.

My garage ceiling drywall tape is coming loose and falling down in parts. I felt the tape and there was a lot of "mud" on the underneath side of it.

The garage is not primed or painted, only the joints are taped and mudded. Any ideas why the tape on the ceiling is coming loose? The seams were mudded and taped about 4 years ago.

This would likely occur if the taping wasn't done well: the tape itself didn't get embedded enough to bond properly with the mud.
