Heh. Tough one. Ehh....

Top Five:
1. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (?)
2. The Joshua Tree/ Achtung Baby (Tied. That's weird, isn't it? Considering how strangely opposite those two are...)
3. All That You Can't Leave Behind (probably my favorite lyrically, but...The music behind the lyrics wasn't as fantastic.)
4. NLOTH
5. War

I like how Ken forgot HTDAAB even exists.

He lives in a much happier world than I.

This feels like Sophie's Choice. Anyhow,

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

I'm sorry October lovers :( I do like most songs on October, but I just feel the band could have worked more on them.

It always blows my mind when someone puts HTDAAB at number 1.   I know Edge backstage at the grammies said it was their best album song for song (and he actually managed to say it without laughing...so I guess he is not a bad actor), but I didnt think anyone would actually believe him.

Rank?

There is only one truly rank U2 album.

And we all know what that is.

Art is subjective. If you're going to suggest it's October, I know of several people who are going to vigorously disagree with you.

Yes. October takes a lot of abuse and it's completely unjustified. I personally not think there's a rank U2 album.... Some are better than others but I like hem all.
