This is how it would go right now, and it is becoming quite a departure from the last time I did this:

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

The bottom four would be somewhat interchangeable depending on my mood.

Zooropa and Achtung Baby are virtually a tie for me.  I used to rank The Joshua Tree tops, but either I've bored of it just a bit or I've really grown to love AB and Zooropa more than I ever used to.  In the past couple of weeks SOI has moved into the top 5.  Previously, it would have been right about where Boy is. 

It wasn't too long ago that Boy would have been in the top 5 for me as it has been quite a favorite of mine over the years, but the list really represents a lot of great albums, and if R&H was a bit more of an album, even it would be higher on the list.

SOI hasn't gotten stale for me after numerous listens, which is awesome. I doubt it can crack my top 3, but it's nice to know how well the album has held up for me (the same can't be said for NLOTH).
