I voted Zooropa but I don't understand everyones hatred for ATYCLB, Its my favorite album.
It's not hatred, it's polarisation. When @U2 voted to rank its favourite albums, ATYCLB ended up right in the middle, because some people.ove it and some people hate it. It's like marmite!
I much prefer NLOTH to Boy, but I'm actually more surprised to see the latter with so many votes. I know several people hate NL and I knw that many people hate the 2000s, but Boy is very inoffensive! Didn't realise that some people held it in such low esteem.
I agree with this esp. the new view of Boy being one of the weakest. I'd rank it in the middle. Its very inoffensive
I always ranked Boy low because it was an early one dimensional post punk U2. Sure, I'll always like some of the songs like Electric Co, An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart, Twilight, Out of Control, I Will Follow, but really I don't think I love a certain song on the album. To me, it has a good bunch of above average songs which I really like, and a bunch of songs I don't care much about. Same with October, only I like less of it as a whole.
