My favorite currently is Pop, but to be honest I love all of U2's music from the 90's. Just wanted to see everyone else's opinion. Thanks for voting!

OST #1 or Zooropa for me. I can't decide. I'll go with OST because I know it will lack enough votes.

AB was always the 'best' to me but Pop has stood up over time better and is certainly my favourite.

I may have actually shifted over time and Pop may well be the record i consider the 'best' - but that is a big argument!

I had to go with AB, but man-oh-man, POP is right up there.

Best & favorite - two completely different things.

The poll asks for 'best' so I voted the only possible answer to this question - Achtung Baby.

However my 'favorite' is Pop.

I love them all as 90s U2 is just about perfect for me (although I love 80s U2 as well).  I picked Original Soundtracks 1, because I figured it would get ousted.  But I suppose, because of what it means to me and for how long it's been a part of my life, Achtung Baby is tough to beat.  That said, Pop has become more and more a favorite over the years.  I just love the sound of that record, not to mention that era.  But the 90s overall, at least from my perspective, seemed to be a very exciting time to be a U2 fan.

One day it's Pop; the next it's Zooropa.

Achtung Baby is great too, but thematically a bit one-note in comparison.

Achtung, followed by Zooropa, then Pop then Passengers. All great stuff. 90's U2 is my favourite U2 decade, for sure. Not forgetting the brilliant single Hold Me Thrill Me... Wish they'd recorded more tracks like that one!

Of course it's Achtung Baby.

That said, there's a strong case to be made that Passengers could be the U2 album most like what I'm interested in these days: ambient, instrumental (in parts, anyway), synth music.
