Adam's Strongest Album

My vote goes to War. He may not have the most complicated parts on it, but his presence is massive on War.

I would have to say Pop is where Adam shines brightest.

What about the basslines of Stay, Lemon, Daddy's gonna pay.......................
In the past records, indeed the first records, he played a bit raw, he was good anyway, but he's probably the member of U2 who has improved much more playing. Larry and Edge play pretty the same, Adam became kinda more melodic record after record. For instance, the basslines of Unforgettable Fire are very different to the first 3 records, as much as like Joshua Tree's basslines compared to UF and so on. He studied a lot actually, and you really recognize it. But Pop is surely a record were he gave his best, but I must say there isn't a record at all or a song where I don't like the basslines, starting from Boy and ending To How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

Adam's best : Pop

Adam's most underated : HTDAAB

Adam's worst : ATYCLB (its not his fault, its just the songs don't demand much Adam, except for "A Little While" )
