My rankings for this week:

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

Each week 6-13 are completely different. It's fun tracking my listening habits and seeing which albums are getting more play. It just shows how strong their catalogue is. Each album is special to me and on any given week the rankings can be completely flipped.

5. Zooropa
6. The unforgettable fire
7. No line on the horizon
8. Rattle and hum
9. Songs of innocence
10. Pop
11. War
12. Boy
13. October (even admitting Gloria, October and Scarlet are great songs, it's clear how amazing this band is)

Pretty similar to my rankings. It's always interesting to see how polarising Bomb is - I personally love and you clearly do as well but many on this forum think it's the worst thing they've ever done!

I haven't been listening to much U2 the past 3-4 months.  I'd do one of these with the music not so fresh in my soul and based on instinct/impulse.

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

How come under a blood red sky is never included in these polls?  It was an album technically and would be at the top of my list, anyone else?

Oh my god, I am so sorry! I must have been either distracted, exhausted, or watching a show while I typed that list! I'll reedit it after I post this post
