I love How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. I never stopped loving it. It's just that I have so much U2 music. I play it about as much as the rest, but that's tough when you've got so much!

It's an album I can listen to for 2 weeks straight, take a week break and come back to and it's still fresh!

It stays in the cd player longer than other U2 cds, and slighly longer than achtung and joshua......i'm wondering its that new or because its really good...? lol

I definately can listen to it often! Great album, some of U2s best work in terms of album cohesiveness/quality from start to finish!

Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around The World

Probably because it's the more actual album to me, The Atomic Bomb is the 2nd in my chart

1) Joshua Tree
2) Atomic Bomb
3) Acthung Baby
5) UF / War (it depends on my mood...)

Excluding All Because of You and A man and a Woman that I consider 2 weak, weak, weak songs, the rest is awesome.

Whow they are my favourite albums as well, if you bring UF to number one that is right just drop everything by 1 and you have mine.

I have to admit to not like HTDAAB at first, but it has seriously grown on me. The album is both lyrically and musically mature. What I love is that you can hear Boy and October's influence there - something missing for years. From top to bottom I think it's their best. I guess this would be my list:

2. Achtung Baby
3. The Joshua Tree
5. POP

For the record, Rattle & Hum is my least favorite of all the albums. I enjoy the original tracks off the album, but the live stuff and the covers just interfere. Heartland would rank up there in the all-time best, as would All I Want is You.

It always amuses me when people say that such and such a song is really weak/bad but that they love the album and it's one of their favourites. For me, if an album has poor songs on it and filler, then it's not a great album. And that's for any artist, not just U2.

First thing that springs to mind - Parklife by Blur. Some great songs on the record, but way too much filler for it to be a brilliant record. Another is Gold by Ryan Adams. Love most of the stuff on it, but the man has no understanding of quality control. He seems to think that just because he writes a song, he must put it on an album.

Sorry, that went a bit off topic , so......

I loved HTDAAB as soon as I heard it, and it's grown on me some since. Which was different to ATYCLB, which I was very indifferent to at first but it grows with every listen, even these days. I hate trying to make top (insert number here) lists. On any given day they could be different, but here goes:

1) Achtung Baby
2) The Joshua Tree
4) War

It has really grown on me since seeing the album performed live. The songs are so much more powerful for me now.

well since everyone is showing how HTDAAM is crawling up their charts, I guess I'll show mine :

1) War
2) Achtung Baby
4) The Joshua Tree
5) Boy

HTDAAB and Boy have been going up and down for quite sometime on my 'charts'
1) Achtung Baby
2) Joshua Tree
3) Rattle and Hum
4) Zooropa
5) All That You Can't Leave Bahind

5 worst?

1) October
2) Passengers
3) Unforgettable Fire
4) Pop
5) Boy

Admittedly, the botttom 4 ain't that bad, they're actually very good, but October stinks

I haven't really stopped listening to it. I do rotate it with my other CD's, but I still listen to it at least once a week, or parts of it, however much of the CD I get to from my drive from home to work.

Actually the car adapter thing for my CD player and the cassette deck hasn't been working for a few awhile, so lately I've been off U2, except when the songs come on the radio.

My top 5/6 (there's a tie for 5th)

Joshua Tree
Achtung Baby
Boy/How to

1. Acthung, Baby
2. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
3. The Joshua Tree
4. Rattle and Hum
5. All That You Can't Leave Behind

I like the Bomb -- the WHOLE Bomb
The only problem I can see with the album is A Man and A Woman.
Its not that I don't like the song, its just I don't think it really 'fits' on the album -- I think it belongs on ATYCLB, but that's just me.

* Hurrah for Meghan!! 100 posts!!*
