I like it because IMO it expresses emotion like no other U2 album does. ;)

Zooropa, because it's their most consistent album, IMO.

Definately Achtung Baby. I'd say it's one of the top 5 albums ever. Everything from the desperate sound in Bono's voice, to the change in style for U2. Plus I discovered it at a very important time of my life. And every song is just perfect.

I had a hard time choosing between The Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, and Zooropa. Weeded out Zooropa because though it has AMAZING songs I simply could not live without, it's not as consistently good as the other two, in my opinion. And then...Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby...that's just cruel to make me choose =)

But ultimately I went for Achtung Baby, probably because I don't skip a single song on it when I listen. I do skip "Trip Through Your Wires" and "One Tree Hill" I must admit...not that they're bad songs, not at all, but I can't listen to them over and over.

That said, I'm surprised War doesn't have a single vote!  ???

I have to go with Zooropa because... Do I have to have a reason?

Thanks for not having NLOTH as a choice. There hasn't been enough exposure time yet. It hasn't even been released yet ;D

War is second for me.

The Joshua Tree is my favorite album of all-time, so obviously it gets my vote. I love all of their albums. ;D

No line On The Horizon (at the moment), competes with AB, JT & UF.

The Joshua Tree. Achtung Baby comes so close behind it though.  Basically like hairs touching. ;D

Achtung Baby.....all the way.

I know a lot of people dismiss PoP but I always felt that it's probably the most underrated album from U2.
