Achtung Baby. But I think The Joshua Tree will always be their "classic"

financeguy, i'll reply just so you don' t have to have the only replies to your own thread. EDIT----thelaj beat me to it!

It's hard to keep this from being "What's your favorite album?" I'm not sure which I think was the most influential..... I'm thinking of 'most influential on the music world,' but I guess you could also say 'most influential to my life' or a million others, I guess.

I'll have to think about this one & come back before I vote.......

well, it's hard

for most of the recent alternative Killers, Bravery-esque bands, I'd say Boy for sure

bands like Coldplay and Radiohead, The Unforgettable Fire and Zooropa

it's hard :???:

Influencial as in how? It made a huge impact on the music world? Then most likely The Joshua Tree, it was the hugest thing at the time and still their best album to date, gotta go with TJT.

Zooropa was too quiet to be influential.

It is Atchung that echoed through out the industry. Was not just herlded as a way, but the way of the 1990s. Changed everything.

There's many reasons why each album is gonna be influentional in it's own way.

Boy, is what any band starting out should aim to achieve.

October, shows if you stick with it, you can overcome any setback, and produce something of the caliber of War.

I think Achtung Baby though in time will be the most influential.

For established bands, it will persuade them to be braver than they thought they dare be. That they can work through any problems and come out even better than they've ever been before.

This is hard! My first instinct would be to say Joshua Tree but I think over time Achtung Baby would be the one most people remember.
