War, TUF, and JT for me. TUF has some great extras (Disappearing Act), as does JT (Wave of Sorrow).
I'll tell you something: I have never listened to Disappearing Act nor Yoshino. It's not available at Spotify here

Unacceptable!

haha, thanks! Will listen to it. But it's a pity I can't listen to it on spotify. For me U2 songs are at its best when they're played in an album

That is a bummer. I'm that way about Pop. It's most enjoyable for me when played as a full album.

AB and TJT. Still desperately waiting for Zooropa and Pop.

Maybe. Deluxe Edition has lot of outtakes/remixes. The Deluxe of Bomb has only remixes.

i don't really consider these releases to be deluxe versions- the ones with a bit nicer packaging and a few bonus tracks.  IMO there have been 4 deluxe albums- TUF, JT, AB and No Line.

There was a single edit of Zooropa? Was the OST version of Stay much different to the original?

Personally my vote goes to achtung baby. Most money I ever spent on a music item but it was well worth it.

There promo Zooropa single is much shorter, cuts out the slow build of the song. The Stay OST version is very different. It's faster, among other differences.

AB hands down for me. The level of extras and the mastering job was excellent. JT and War would be next. It depends on what album you like.
