Joshua tree vs Best of U2-1980-1990

Which album would you prefer to keep with you

1) Joshua Tree
2) Best of U2 1980-1990

supposing you were to have only 1 U2 album..( Just imagine)

Sometimes I feel Joshua Tree is better than U2 best of 1980-90 ?

I chose Best Of, but only because it has hits from the different 80s eras!

Out of the two I would choose JT. I do like the Best Of album but I would rather have the album that had RTSS, Bullet and One Tree Hill.

I'd chose JT. The Best Of is indeed a great compilation, but e.g. New Year's Day is only in the shorter version on it and that bugs. All the songs from the Best Of are on the other albums already, so it wouldn't hurt too much to give it away.

I don't know why.......but I'd keep JT......

Okay, that is indeed a good reason.

hmmm...how do you mean?

Well...I couldn't do without songs like NYD and Pride, which JT obviously does not have. However, One Tree Hill and In Gods Country would be sorely missed. I don't know. I'm just glad we don't HAVE to choose!

I would choose JT because I like Exit, One Tree Hill!

but I would also choose Best Of because I like NYD, Pride, BAD, AIWY!

I am glad that I don't have to choose!

i like the songs off of joshua tree that you can't find on the greatest hits, but the variety from the best of is better, imo.

Never mind, just being cute. You said you would choose the Best Of "but only because it has hits from the different 80s eras!" I was just pointing out that that's the entire reason it exists....

I would choose JT. Reason? Well... I like JT more... (I dont' think that's a good reason, but I can't think of any else)

Well, as much as I hate to even think about life without the songs Running to Stand Still, One Tree Hill, Exit and Mothers of the Disappeared, life without Bad, New Year's Day and Pride (In the Name of Love) seems even more unbearable - so I'm voting for the Best Of.
