always AB bbut also NLOTH wither either POP or ZOOROPA or UF,depending on my day & how i fell but love  NLOTH it hasent been of cd player since the day it came out,i carnt understand peoples problem with it.but then again i am not to fond of HTDAAB not one i would listen to in a hurry but it does have some good songs,also feel ths same about ATYCLB  but these are just my opion.

You're not alone. A lot of people like No Line and rank it among the band's top 4 albums, even if a lot of those people (myself included) analyse and critique certain tracks or aspects of it to death. There's a reason it was the top-selling rock album of 2009.  ;)



NLOTH was one of the best selling albums (an achievement that carries nowhere near the clout it did 15 years ago...kids dont buy albums anymore) because there are millions of fans, like myself, that will buy ANY album with U2 on the cover.  That fact alone guarantees a U2 album will be one of the biggest selling albums of the year, regardless of whether it is good or not.  NLOTH, however, is U2's last free pass from me, and Ive been buying u2 albums on the day of release for 2 and half decades.





I agree with the above statement on NLOTH. The next release regardless of the hype I will be more tentative about buying immediately. Of the last albums, I only still own a copy of ATYCLB and the rest I've bought and ended up reselling to stores unfortunately, since they just don't feel like albums to me.

I've been listening to JT of late simply because I love the consistency of the album, but you also can't beat Zooropa. It's their ultimate consistent album in my opinion.

There's no doubt that the U2 legion add to the sales. There's also no doubt that a heck of a lot of people bought the album because they like it; hence, happyme is not alone in his/her taste.

I was exactly where you are after All That You Can't and How to Dismantle. But after listening to the No Line tracks, I gladly went out and bought the CD. For me, it ranks right up with U2's best 80s albums, but a step below their 90s output.

Pop at the moment. But I genuinly cannot get enough of Achtung Baby.

I haven't listened to Achtung Baby all the way through since the late '90s, and I haven't listened to it at all in at least 6 or 7 years. don't know why - I moved it to the top of my "must listen to this soon" CD pile a few months ago, but I keep taking other CDs out from under it and playing them instead.

I burned my own U2 favorites CD at the start of this summer's tour, and it's been in my car stereo nonstop for about a month now.

I've been really into TUF lately. It's a good late summer/early fall album.

I listen to Breathe a lot in the car.  Strangely enough, I think The First Time is a good driving song as well. ;)

I am pretty sure I've listened to Zooropa at least three times a week since I was 14. (Almost 20 now. :))

So I'm always into that one! :D
