streets- 9.8
ISHFWILF- 8
WOWY-8.5
bullet- 8
running to stand still- 10 (but only because it's one of my fave U2 songs EVER, i'm biased)
RHMT- 6
in god's country- 7
TTYW- 6
one tree hill- 7.5
exit- 5
mothers of the disappeared- 5.5

...according to my rating, the album weakens during the second half, though i've never thought of it that way. strange.

The most perfect, but -- dare I say -- not the most complete U2 album...

The Joshua Tree:

Where The Streets Have No Name - 10
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - 10
With or Without You - 10
Bullet The Blue Sky - 8
Running To Stand Still - 10
Red Hill Mining Town - 9
In God's Country - 9
Trip Through Your Wires - 8
One Tree Hill - 9.5
Exit - 8
Mothers of the Disappeared - 10

Wow, what an amazing album. Not one track below an 8 (for me), and five 10's. U2 obviously tapped into something special with this one.

At this point in the grading, I have only given one 10 to a song. (Bad)

Things are about to change dramatically!

The B-Sides

Luminous Times......6
Walk to the Water......8.5
Spanish Eyes......8.5
Deep in the Heart......7
Silver and Gold......8.5
Sweetest Thing......8
Race Against Time......4

The Album

Where the Streets Have No Name......10
I Still Haven't Found......9
With or Without You......10
Bullet the Blue Sky......9
Running to Stand Still......10
Red Hill Mining Town......9
In God's Country......9
Trip Thru Your Wires......7
One Tree Hill......10
Exit......8.5
Mothers of the Disappeared......10

We are talking about the Greatest Album of the 80's and quite possibly the Greatest Album of All Time.
