JT, when the photo isn't stretched or the scenery cropped out
Not sure if this reply should be in this thread or in the "you know you're an obsessed U2 fan when..." thread.

I took a class to Death Valley back in '03 and took a number of photos including the attached one, from Zabriskie Point.  A month or 2 after that I was playing the Joshua Tree album and looked closely at the album cover, just to the left of Larry on the "squished in" cover photo and realized that I had taken a photo of that rock formation.  The angle is a bit off, but I found out later that that cover was shot there and that is the ONLY rock that looks like that there.

Achtung Baby cover is the greatest cover ever! Followed closely by Joshua Tree!  This band has some of the greatest album covers in Rock and Roll history!

Surely Under a Blood Red Sky is the best album cover. Ever.

The cover for Hotdaab, or as I call it 'How to Dismantle an Amazing Band', was really laissez-faire and atrocious.

Man paints a picture,

Yes it was macphisto, it is a really bad cover. I was really dissapointed with the whole albums packaging actually.

WAR. Thats the most unique and standout cover on any U2 album. Easily IMO.
