Joshua Tree re-enters US album chart at #47

That's right, this past week the Joshua Tree was the 47th biggest selling album of the week in the United States. That is the Joshua Tree's highest position since 1988!
Here is the link to the billboard 200 chart:

That's awesome, but does that just make them a greatest hits act? I guess it depends on how the new album does.

No it means invisible is a hit and people are going "what else you got?"

Maybe they can still do better, but idk about calling that overrated....
I think that should be a very good sign to the band to see the release of invisible bringing them new fans.

Surprising, I guess a lot of football fans watching the Superbowl were fans of U2 during that era.

I'm not surprised however that this album is the one to re-enter the charts. It is their most popular.

Besides the Big Singles, I don't think Joshua Tree is anything special.

I wonder how it would be if ordered differently. They do throw the strongest individual tracks out right from the start.

Didn't Lillywhite's wife put the tracklist together or something speaking of which?

It was (still is I think) on a promo sale for 3.99 on Amazon MP3 & Google Play, probably the reason. Nice to see.

honestly it's amazing from start to finish.

yes she put it in order or her favorites minus Streets and MOTD which the band stated were the bookends of the album.

'Red Hill Mining Town' says hello. So does 'Running to Stand Still'. So does 'One Tree Hill'. So does 'Mothers of The Disappeared'. Oh, so does 'Bullet the Blue Sky', lol. And we're still forgetting about killer tracks like 'In God's Country' and 'Exit'!

Even just listen to 'Red Hill Mining Town' after listening to anything from the last 4 albums and tell me it doesn't resonate on a deeper level. I mean, this is 'Red Hill Mining Town' -- an almost forgotten track off the album -- and it still sounds like a classic.
