Can U Pick Your Top 3 U2 Albums?


Recommended Posts

what is a valid reason for saying you like an album or for choosing it as a top 3?  Is it because your top favorite song resides on that album?  I LOVE Magnificent!!!

 

My Top 3

 

Unforgettable Fire

No Line on the Horizon

Achtung Baby

Joshua Tree - ok, I have a "Top 4" !!!!

In no particular order:

 

1) UF/JT is a double album, not separable, they count as 1.

 

2) AB/Zooropa same logic ;)

 

3+) Boy, Pop, HTDAAB, NLOTH

 

Least played category (but no shame here - they are competing with half-a-dozen other albums) -- October, War, ATYCLB, RH.

1. Achtung Baby (by a landslide)

2. Unforgettable fire

3. Rattle & Hum

 

My first two choices would be appreciated by most long-time U2 fans.  The third may be scoffed at by some.  I know Rattle & Hum may not be a typical fan's choice and it may also not be near the top in terms of consistency.  I also acknowledge that it is the album that nearly ended U2 and that the critics lined up like a pack of hungry dogs to rip it to shreds.  Despite these various black marks and reservations R&H contains some of my all time favourite U2 moments and some of the most underrated tracks in the U2 discology.  Hawkmoon 269, in particular, is a standout for me.  I think R&H does suffer a bit from schizophrenia.  It probably should have been a live or studio album but not both, and certainly not evenly divided between the two.  I believe the original material on its own would have been quite well received as follows:

 

1) Desire

2) Hawkmoon 269

3) Angel of Harlem

4) Love Rescue Me

5) When Love Comes to town

6) Heartland

7) God Part II 

8) All I Want Is You
