I voted Boy. I understand it has a lot going for it, it just never fully connected with me. Surprisingly (I'm sure) I prefer October.

Boy.

I don't hate any of the songs besides Shadows & Tall Trees, but I don't particularly like any of the songs either. I never listen to the album. Ever.

I'm surprised at the votes for Boy and War, maybe naively

I'm disappointed that ATYCLB will leave this early. I voted for War.

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! :P

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.

Yeah, this is pretty much how I feel. No songs on the album make me think "oh yay it's [song name here]" when they come up in my shuffle.

I'll be one of the heretics and choose Unforgettable Fire... I go back to that album the least.  Reminds me of mullets and bad acid wash pants. Don't get me wrong, I get the whole experimentation and evolution thing, but... ugh... it just sounds so.... overly earnest and not fun... I guess I'm a U2 in the 90's guy.  I remember liking U2 in the 80s because my friends did and bought the albums... liked them... JT came out... then I thought... ok... these guys are getting good... R&H came out I thought hmmmmm.... ok... but... the AB came out and I thought- OK... HERE'S A BAND I LIKE!

Taking out ATYCLB, the results surprisingly have a very symmetrical patten
