Bleh.

War/Boy
Achtung Baby
ATYCLB/HTDAAB/October
Zooropa
Pop

Having Mofo, Gone and Please is enough to get it into the top 3.

But yeah, opinions ...

Hehe mine dangles between UF and Joshua Tree for a favorite...

Unforgettable fire does have Bad and Pride and A Sort of Homecoming... tough to choose for certain! But yeah, I agree, we're all entitled to our opinions.

I like Pop. But I won't say it's underrated. The truly underrated U2 album has got to be UF.

Pop is amazing There is the only one album which I love more - The Joshua Tree.
But I think there is a big amount of fans who make this album not as underrated as for example October or Zooropa, but I totally can't understand why U2 claim it's half-baked...

It's certainly not underrated on Interference. But outside of the blue crack you'll hardly find anyone who even knows that Pop exists.

You're probably right.

I know a few... but they think U2 is a Air Plane.

Resisting the temptation to think of the trailer for Killing Bono...'it sounds like a bleedin submarine!' (why did they not say airplane?)

And that weirded me out when I found U-2=plane in History class. Until I heard some interview where Baby Bono said it was just a letter and a number...

I know. A few of us did a project on airframe weight distribution of high altitude planes, back in school. I'm a wannabe aerodynamicist.

We weren't able to complete it and had to do one on hydroelectric power

But we had a great time back then. Problem is whenever I mention U2 now, the response is "Get over it man. U2 sucks. Absolutely no utility whatsoever... even the Rumpler Taube was better"

On some level that's hilarious—it began with the dreaded 'U2 sucks' and then...oh...airplanes

Pop certainly isn't underrated here, that much is true.

Although I agree... in respect to a whole, The Unforgettable Fire is so overlooked. It is, in my opinion, a second Joshua Tree.

I think everyone's middle ground is U2's middle era with those four albums, UF, Joshau Tree, R&H, and Achtung Baby.

People seem to vary though, in between Boy/War/October and Pop/Zooropa (post-punk vs. electronic/dance rock, if you will). Then you have the 2000s, which are their own creation but much more of a blend of the two.

Oh my the U2 spy plane thing! We were doing something in science last year and that U2 plane happened to be in the book. When we finally got to that part of the lesson and the teacher read out "A U2 plane" everyone looked at me and I just grinned really big.
