1) Gone
2) Please
3) IGWSHA

Honorable mentions: Do You Feel Loved (4)

That's about it for me on this album.  I never really connected with this one. I can appreciate it for what it is, and I think the tour was aesthetically cooler than the album, and the album artwork was pretty interesting. 20 years on and I still don't get Mofo - it just doesn't sound like a U2 song to me. I've never liked techno and the song doesn't have a strong melody.

Well that was tough...

Mofo for certain then Please and Gone. Discotheque, DYFL, SATS and IGWSHA come close, though.

Whoa. I'm really in the minority here.

I went with Gone, The Playboy Mansion, and Last Night on Earth. I confess that despite my best efforts, I've not succeeded in falling in love with this album. I'm still going at it, though.  ;)

For me its Do You Feel Loved, Gone and Please that are the best. Right after comes Mofo, Wake Up Dead Man and Starring at the Sun.

Mofo, Gone and If You Wear That Velvet Dress! The only 2 tracks I'm not so keen on are If God Will Send His Angels and Wake Up Dead Man (I usually replace them with Your Blue Room and Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me). The rest of the album is brilliant and amongst my favourite of the band's. I also like to add North And South Of The River to the album on my MP3 player. If only we could have full versions of the Hong Kong Mixes! I want to hear more songs recorded during the Pop sessions and different versions of tracks we already know.
