Let's rank U2's albums
« on: August 31, 2015, 03:36:40 PM »
We've just finished the Under a Blood Red Sky :)

Now for something a bit different. We're going to rank U2's albums.

Were going to rank all 14 albums - Passengers will be included. If you REALLY object to Passengers, feel free to put it last.

Rank U2's albums 1-14 (1 being worth 14 points, 14 being worth 1 point). I people leave Passengers off, I'll just assume it was ranked last on their list.

We'll see how things look after a week ;)

OK, now the guidelines are set - go for it!
