Rank U2's albums
« on: December 27, 2017, 11:14:13 AM »
Ok, here is how I would rank U2's albums from the best to my least favorite. How would you rank them now with the release of Songs Of Experience?

01. Achtung Baby
02. Joshua Tree
03. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
04. Unforgettable Fire
05. All That You Can't Leave Behind
06. WAR
07. Songs Of Experience
08. Songs of Innocence
09. BOY
10. Zooropa
11. No Line On The Horizon
12. Rattle And Hum
13. POP
14. October

Here are mine, but i have to add that regardless of where they appear in this list, I can find a lot to like on every one of these albums.

1. Achtung Baby
2. The Joshua Tree
3. War
4. The Unforgettable Fire
5. All That You Can't Leave Behind
6. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
7. Boy
8. Songs of Experience (this is debuting very high in my list)
9. Songs of Innocence
10. Rattle & Hum (It's tough to classify this as an actual album, it's more of a collection of songs without much of a flow)
11. Zooropa
12. October
13. No Line on the Horizon
14. Pop

That's a thread from 2011 long before Songs Of Innocence, and Songs Of Experience were released.
