    Out of all of U2's albums, which is your favorite? I'm going to have to go with "No Line on the Horizon".

    Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby are my favs. But I like pretty much everything they did with Brian Eno.

    Achtung Baby. Joshua Tree is a close second.

    The first three albums was excellent but my vote goes to War.

    Achtung Baby.
    The one I like the least? Your favorite, I did not enjoy that album at all.

    Another vote for War; the only time that I would do that, barring a direct attack by a foreign power.

    not to be cliche, but I would have to go with War as well...

    there was a vibe they caught on that album that was not replicated ever again. Joshua Tree comes in at a close second tho

    Yep - Achtung Baby is really good and Joshua Tree is legendary. All that early stuff is great too. I like the music, am sick to death of Bono

    Another vote for Achtung Baby. I really liked Zooropa too.

    War .....here ...

    As the world was falling in love with U2 with Joshua Tree i was becoming disenchanted....they were a "real" alternative band till then ....and that was before "alternative" was actually a genre ...it was just coming along......now i enjoy lot's of Joshua Tree but at the time the only track that was true U2 for me was Bullet the Blue Sky.

    I usually dig their hits to some degree ...i enjoyed much of Achtung Baby ....but ceased being a devotee years ago....

    Unforgettable Fire, followed very closely by October.

    Achtung Baby with War as a close 2nd. Joshua Tree is amazing, but got burnt out on it as an upper classman in high school when it came out.

    Whoa, that's exactly what I was going to say. Creepy. :help:

    Unforgettable Fire has so many great songs on it, but October is a bit darker, and the title track is exceptional.

    No love for Under a Blood Red Sky? It's got "11 o'Clock Tick Tock" on it, with a cool bass line that sounds like a New Wave single.

    Unforgettable Fire... but from a bass perspective only I have to say POP.
    Adam lays down serious groove on the POP cd.

    War- for whatever reason Clayton's bass playing was better on that album. It never reached that level again.
