good write up though.
I agree too, I believe Zoo Station to be one of the greatest show openers, and I'm not saying this because ZS is on Achtung Baby, Im saying it because of how the stage was set up for that song (like when he levatated in front of the massive screen)

Again, I did NOT say in my post that 80,000 people were agreeing it was the greatest live song of all time. I was simply remarking (once again) that it's very difficult to get 80,000 people to agree on anything, and it's a testement to 'Where the Streets Have No Name' that it manages to accomplish this very feat....every night.

I guess we can end the poll, as nobody has voted the last 5 or 6 days.

So the results are:

1. ACHTUNG BABY
2. The Joshua Tree
3. Pop/HTDAAB
5. The Unforgettable Fire
6. Zooropa/ATYCLB
8. October/War
9. Rattle and Hum
10. Boy
11. Passengers

No real surprises, but with all the HTDAAB-bashing on this forum the album scored very well.

Yeah, again, these results prove that things are not as many here want things to be... thankfully...
To me, that's why seeing HTDAAB at #3 and October not at the end of the "chart" explains it...

My personal rankings:

1. Achtung Baby (Best. Album. Ever.)
2. The Joshua Tree (where the term "typical sounding U2" originates despite the fact that each era has such a different sound
3. The Bomb - Personally I've never understood the hate for this, I agree with the fact that it doesn't flow like JT and AB but individual songs are great enough to make up for it, if they had released it with Mercy instead of AMAAW, it'd be even better.
4. War - The raw U2, love the sounds, the lyrics, the themes, very different time for them though
5. Boy - Stunning debut as someone said earlier, the clarity and purpose in their lyrics wasn't quite masterwork but they were getting there...Stories for Boys
6. Pop - Love many of the songs, but sometimes the weird production is too much.
7. ATYCLB - The first half of this album is amazing, the rest is decent but not enough to put it that high up. Peace on Earth and Kite though are great under-rated songs.
8. The Unforgettable Fire - MLK, Pride, and Bad are 3 of the best songs ever, but the album is short and without flow or much of a theme
9. Zooropa - A bit too bizarre for its own good but Stay is so amazing, its worth listening to the whole thing just for that, I am a big fan of the middle of the album though Numb - Daddy's gonna Pay
10. October - Great songs, love it, just nothing to lift it up to the top tier.

I don't really count R&H as a studio album, I like a lot fo what's there but it's new material amalgamated into a soundtrack.

Passengers is an entertaining side project, but doesn't bear the name U2 for a reason haha.

Well, I posted it because, really, how many times are we going to see the unoriginal poll of " what's your favorite U2 album?" Seriously now. That's like U2 message board 101. So, therefore, I deemed it lame. But, I'll play your little game. LOL!
Achtung Baby is not only my favorite U2 album of all time, it's my favorite album of all time.
I can't believe it's almost 15 years old. Damn, time sure flies.
