Achtung Baby is REALLY overrated.

Still good though. It was my first actual U2 album, and I've heard it 70/80 times, so I'm numb to it now.

AB and Bends should have a fist fight for ultimate supremacy: two borderline great albums going at it.

I would NEVER fault anyone for having this opinion. Though not my #1 favorite, I think Zooropa is one of their best and highly underrated.

I'm actually a little surprised by your agreement on this. I thought you hated Sulk.

The first three on JT are really overrated. Everything after that is what makes it a classic.

I think we'll all come to an agreement faster with the Radiohead trinity instead of U2's.

The Bends
OK Computer
Kid A

Overrated or overplayed and overhyped? Because I truly think WTSHNN and WOWY are great songs, that have just been played and hyped to death. ISHFWILF is a good song, but not great.

But I do think there is a difference between overrated and overhyped.

I couldn't agree more... I usually start listen at track number 4 or 5...

And Zooropa is great

Anyway back to Radiohead

I used to have the exact same opinion. But ISHFWILF re-grew on me. It is such a classic, starting from the swirly guitar intro to Bono's "I have climbed the hiiiiighest mountains..." all the way to the end.
