Oh no-please don't get rid of War!  It is such a gem!  It tells such a compelling story when put together about the title. Even putting Peter's older picture with a more scared look on his face was genius contrasting it to the innocent and carefree Peter on Boy!  I really would be sad to see this go but it looks like it will. It is an underrated album. Even though Pop was daring and made the band step outside their box, I went for this one at this point in the game!

Boom Cha!

I voted UF, sorry Bad!  :'(

This voting has kinda panned out to my tatstes. Although the earlier albums voted off were not always in the order of 'my least favorite', out of the 5 remainig albums, if you switched Boy with UF,  my 5 favorite albums would be left.

PLEASE DONT VOTE WAR OFF!!!!! Its an absoultely brilliant album.

The 4 of them can chop down the tree - that's OK.  However, any of us telling it to go away - hmm.  :P

Is something against god,  no?  Are we comparing U2 to god?  Please,  don't kid around ...U2 are not any where near "godly" if there is even a god to begin with !

War is over. (Although I've said that every round so far and it's still loitering.)

The public domain 1913 Webster's Unabridged Dictionary defines blasphemy as:

    Blasphemy (Blas"phe*my) n. [L. blasphemia, Gr. : cf. OF. blasphemie.]

        * An indignity offered to God in words, writing, or signs; impiously irreverent words or signs addressed to, or used in reference to, God; speaking evil of God; also, the act of claiming the attributes or prerogatives of deity. When used generally in statutes or at common law, blasphemy is the use of irreverent words or signs in reference to the Supreme Being in such a way as to produce scandal or provoke violence.
        * Figuratively, of things held in high honor: Calumny; abuse; vilification.

if there is even a god to begin with !

Indeed.

Agreed with all points, though - I voted War, and Joshua Tree should be next.

Btw do you guys know that the Joshua tree, the one pictured for the album, died somewhere around 2000? Apparently a branch broke, and it couldn't sustain itself, ultimately falling down completely. :-\
