Abbey Road is a big middle finger to anyone who doubt's George Harrison's songwriting ability.

'Something' and 'Here Comes The Sun' are two of the greatest pop songs ever written.

And I consider everything from 'You Never Give Me Your Money' onwards(the Abbey Road Medley) to be one of the great artistic accomplishments in the history of pop/rock music.

I love Achtung Baby with every fiber of my being, but Abbey Road has a place in history that Achtung just doesn't have...yet.

Both...

Achtung is not my favourite U2 album (#3) but I love it to death.

Abbey Road is the Beatles album that I most like to listen straight through.

One will be classic, the other IS classic

Really can't decide, I love them both

well it´s clear any sort of these polls are very influenced by U2-mania here

Both albums are outstanding and very different each other ... but... just with the Cover album Abbey Road wins

The B-side is one of the most original pieces of work ever done

Simplicity and charm. I actually like Jenny Wren off Paul's new album more than Blackbird though.

Abbey Road has been played to death. So much so, it's almost like elevator music. I'll take Achtung, baby.

Gotta go with Achtung, but why is Abbey Road the competition? Why not Sgt. Pepper or Revolver? Those seem to be their highest rated albums. Although U2 would be lucky to go out on as high of a note as Abbey Road. I do love the album, even named my Yellow Lab puppy Abbey.

This poll is of course a little biased, to say the least, because it takes place here.

It's Abbey Road for me, though. Simply because there aren't any songs on Achtung Baby that can compete with songs such as:

Something

Here Comes The Sun

Because

You Never Give Me Your Money

....and do I have to mention the most beautiful medley in the history of popular music ever?

Well.... of what I've heard, Abbey Road is the most popular Beatles album in fan circles. I personally know many that consider Sgt. Peppers overrated. Of course, that said, Revolver would give Abbey a run for it's money. Anyway I myself like Abbey Road the best out of their albums! It's sheer joy to listen to from start to finish! It has these euphoric moments like most of 'You Never Give Me Your Money', when that tune returns later on in the album and the final part of The End.. that bring tears to my eyes!


!!! at Headache's sig! Is that a photoshop job or what? Please don't tell me you actually found toilet paper called Mercy!

In that competition for me Achtung is the winner. But between Revolver vs Joshua tree I can't decide. Pet Sounds is the best of all.

I just realized that it may be Achtung Baby for me too, just a tad above Abbey Road because Come Together bores me most of the time. I end up skipping it and playing the record from Something.

Abbey Road is probably my favourite Beatles album whereas Achtung Baby is only my 2nd or 3rd favourite U2 album - but I still voted for Achtung Baby.
