Best album made by U2 hands down! A huge jump up from the failure, "Pop".

What about the hidden gems like Wild Honey, When I Look at The World, and Peace On Earth?

They're the woefully average tunes - Wild Honey is particularly poor IMO.

Apart from Elevation I really like the first side though. And New York is effective. I really liked The Ground Beneath her Feet too.  :D

When I Look At The World, New York, and Grace are great songs.

In A Little While, Wild Honey, Peace on Earth, not so much.

How could it be the worst when this album re-applied U2 as the biggest rock band in the world after their failure, Pop?

Pop is amazing

Please, Last Night on Earth, Gone, IGWSHA, Mofo, Miami, etc.

only one bad song on the album: Playboy Mansion and it's still better than a lot of the songs on ATYCLB

By that thinking we should be seeing a back to basics approach again after their other failure, NLOTH

I will admit that Gone and Staring At The Sun are amazing tracks and can come close to the songs of AYCLB but the rest of the album is......well no words to describe it. Pop should be the next U2 re-mastered album.

Are you honestly saying POP is worse than NLOTH?  ???

Mmmmmmmm fair enough - I would rather eat my own arms than listen to NLOTH - however I can see how fans of the more classic U2 sound would dislike POP
