Rank U2's albums
« on: May 02, 2011, 07:36:48 AM »
Ok, I went back throught the recent topics and I know this one was around last spring....but for those of us who weren't around on the forum last spring, I'm starting it up again.  Post your rankings for U2's 12 studio albums, in order of your preference.

Unfortunately, I can't even go first because I can't decide!  My list starts like this (but the end is more difficult to pin down). It's a work in progress!

1 - Achtung Baby
2 - J.T.
3 - Zooropa
4 - October
5 - ATYCLB
6- TUF


7 - HTDAAB ?
8 - Boy
9 - NLOTH?
10 - Pop?
11 - R & H?
12 - War

As of this moment:

1. October
2. TUF
3. War

--1-3 never move. It would take some great album of unforeseen magnitude to shake up my top 3.--

4. AB
5. NLOTH
6. Zooropa
7. TJT
8. ATYCLB
9. HTDAAB
10. Pop
11. RnH
12. Boy

(I'm not sure about 11 & 12, they switch around a lot. I rarely listen to Boy, though.)

1. Pop
2. Zooropa
3. Achtung Baby
4. War
5. The Joshua Tree
6. Boy
7. The Unforgettable Fire
8. October
9. No Line On the Horizon
10. Rattle & Hum
11. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
12. All That You Can't Leave Behind

I based my list on how much I enjoy sitting down and listening to each album as a whole, rather than how many of my favorite songs each album has. My top four are really solid, just switching around sometimes in order of preference.
Though Pop is my solid #1. 8)
