War is out. I am surprised that Pop has come this far. Pop is one of my favorite albums, but i thought it would be out much sooner.

Yep. It just goes to show that while critics slam it and casual fans don't even know about it, those who really take the time to listen and appreciate realize that it's really good!

Please tell me how Elvis Presely And America, Indian Summer Sky, 4th July & Promenade, although good songs, are peoples favorites above anything on War?



I'll take your Promenade and raise you a Red Light, take your Indian Summer Sky and raise you a Refugee (I actually like both Promenade and ISS)

It's all personal taste, but for me nothing on War comes close to A Sort of Homecoming or Bad



I hear you all on the personal taste thing, this is a fun thread, and Im having fun. I hear ya on Bad and A Sort Of Homecoming (and I LOVE Wire, and Pride and MLK). I just prefer War (along with Pop, I like EVERY song, yes even Red Light, on the album) - thats why they are my favorites. Oh, and the War cover was the reason I got into U2!

Yes Jr, maybe next survivor game you can do it just for the album cover alone!! that would be interesting, no views on the music it contains, just the images!!

Ooh, that would be really cool! I'm a visual person, I'd really like that. And there would probably be less bloodshed.

Nah, would have to boot off that terrible October cover first. At least the guys thought to get a haircut before Hurtdarb.

As for the winner, either the ZooTV albums, possibly Pop (outside bet, though), or Enloth (it's a good cover, damnit).

It would be a hard one, I love the candidness of ATYCLB, but I love the cover of War it says so much!, but I also love the cover of TUF, and AB, oh crap!! I don't know?

C'mon guys, October cover is a souvenir of the 80s. ;D

No-one needs a souvenir of the 80s, a terrible era full of bad, generic rock music, manufactured pop, an idiotic American President, dubious wars in the name of "democracy", an overhyped threat to the West as PR for our leaders' supposed tough stances, the rampant demagoguery of neoliberal economics, a miserable recession, a superpower that wasted money and troops for years on end dicking around in Afghanistan for some unfathomable cause, and a British PM who spent their decade in power kissing America's behind resigning at the nadir of their popularity, followed up by a useless procrastinator whose Cabinet displayed some dubiously verging-on-authoritarian figures, all of which was only really salvaged by the occasional U2 or R.E.M. album.

I mean, who wants to go through all that again...?
