Greetings from Wisconsin!
« on: February 28, 2009, 07:14:58 PM »
Hi everybody! I'm a long time viewer of this forum but just joined.

I'm that U2 fan that all my friends think of when they hear about Bono or the band. I've seen the 7 times in the past couple of decades and hope to see them at least 3 times with this new tour.

I've had the quote: "Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief" as my signature and on my cell phone startup for almost 15 years. Yeah, I got it bad.

I've been listening to NLOTH for about a week now, and absolutely LOVE it. This is how I currently rate their discography (I'm ranking this in order of my favorites..not necessarily BEST. And seeing HTDAAB, Pop, and Zooropa at #s 5, 6, & 7 makes it look like I don't love them as much as I do! Ask me tomorrow and 3 through 12 will probably change!), although I can see NLOTH moving up in place! In parenthesis after each album I put my favorite track off of each.  :)

1. Achtung Baby (The Fly)
2. All That You Can't Leave Behind (Beautiful Day/Walk On/Kite)
3. The Joshua Tree (Where the Streets Have No Name)
4. No Line on the Horizon (too soon to tell, although Magnificent, Moment of Surrender, Unknown Caller, Fez - Being Born, and Breathe are all contenders)
5. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (Miracle Drug//Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own/City of Blinding Lights/Original of the Species)
6. Pop (Last Night on Earth/Please)
7. Zooropa (The Last Time)
8. The Unforgettable Fire (Bad/MLK)
9. Rattle and Hum (All I Want Is You)
10. October (October)
11. Boy (Out of Control)
12. War (40)

Anyway, great forum, peeps, and I look forward to taking part in the dialogue!

Gary
