Which is better? Unforgettable Fire or War?

I can't decide between these closely matched albums. If you had to pick, which one would you pick?

Definitely UF! It's miles better than War in my opinion. I agree with Basstrap, it has such a wonderful mood about it.

As much as I love War, I'm going with UF because I love the whole thing more, and its dreamy quality!

I'm going to be the bastard here and root for War. Although I love the dreamy ethereal quality of UF, I also love the raw power and emotion of War...

If you had asked this question about a month ago I definitely would have chosen War, but in the past few weeks I have found myself listening to UF a lot, and have just fallen in love with a lot of songs I never cared for much in the past, such as Promenade and the title track. So I'm going to weasel out and say I love them both equally.

Same here. I loooove UF, but for some inexplicable but potent reason, War holds a special place in my heart that UF doesn't.
