I like this album, not my favorite, but certainly a definitive album for them.  I went with In God's Country, One Tree Hill and Exit. 

I do quite love Bullet, Running To Stand Still and other tracks as well.  The first half is so front loaded and iconic and while I do love those songs, I appreciate the lesser heard back half.  I suppose it's hard to imagine now, but would the album's impact be diluted if it were sequenced so differently, i.e. the first 4 songs more spread out?  I haven't tested it out, but interesting to see.

With or Without You
Bullet The Blue Sky
Exit

(U2 needs more darker tracks like Bullet and Exit these days)

WTSHNO, ISHFWILF, and Exit (would say With Or Without You but I've got to the point where I've heard it so many times in recent years I've started to feel a little bit sick of it)

In order:

One Tree Hill
In God's Country
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For ...I like Streets more, but this is the better song and that's what we're voting on.
