Here's an update:

265  Achtung Baby
232  The Joshua Tree
210  The Unforgettable Fire
187  Pop
182  Zooropa

as I expected.  but it's great to see SoI seriously challenging the 'Big Five'  and deservedly so.

1 | Achtung Baby
2 | All That You Can't Leave Behind
3 | Pop
4 | The Unforgettable Fire
5 | The Joshua Tree

6 | How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
9 | Songs of Innocence
8 | Zooropa
7 | Rattle & Hum (not counting the live tidbits)

10 | War
11 | Boy
12 | No Line On The Horizon
13 | October
14 | Passengers: Original Soundtracks 1

After this, are we taking the as-voted-on top track from each album and ranking them as we've been doing?

As long as the top five are (in no particular order) AB, TUF, Pop, Zooropa, and TJT, and the bottom two are (in no particular order) HTDAAB and ATYCLB, then all is right in the world.

Haha, I like your thinking (though I'd probably swap Zooropa for SOI).

Well to be fair, SOI is my favorite at the moment. As to where it belongs among the rest of the albums in their catalog, it's too early to say.

Yep, totally agree with that, we'll have to wait & see how it ages.

JT is the most perfect album I've ever listened to, and I've fallen in love with SOI. I've also been getting into October lately
