Your album rating list...

1. Joshua Tree - Surprise...
2. Achtung Baby - A good second place
3. The Unforgettable Fire - A great album, I love Edge's sound
4. Pop
5. All that you can't leave behind
6. Zooropa
7. Ratlle and hum
8. Bomb - not a good album, only two or three good songs, the rest is useless, but the good songs save it from last place

10. War
11. October

Live albums are not on my list...

(I don't own Rattle and Hum so I'll leave that off the list)

1. Achtung Baby (Love every track on there)
2. The Unforgettable Fire (Very atmospheric)
3. October (It ain't that bad! Rough and ready yes, but IMHO Fire, Gloria and Tomorrow are one of many diamonds among the rough)
4. War (It might dip a bit towards the end but SBS, Drowning Man, 40, NYD, and Seconds more than make up for other more...questionable songs )
5. HTDAAB (I thought it was great when I first listened to it but its appeal doesn't seem to have much longevity somehow. Still a good album though)
6. The Joshua Tree (A superb first half hurtles itself into a second half that I just find dull and unlistenable. Perhaps it'll grow on me in time but for now, the only reason why it's #6 is down entirely to that killer first half)
7. Zooropa (At first I hated it but somehow I keep on wanting to listen to it And it gets better with each listen too)
8. Pop (A great album don't get me wrong but Miami, IYWTVD and Do You Feel Loved? are all reasons why it's so far down on my list)
9. ATYCLB (I don't think it's as bad as some people say but, let's be honest, that track listing is terrible and causes the second half of the album to really drag on causing the good songs in the second half to come across as being far worse than they actually are)
10. Boy (I'm sorry but I just don't 'get' it. Not at all.)

This is based on how much I'm enjoying them at this moment and how much play time they're getting. If asked to rate them on which I think are the best, my list would be different.

1. HTDAAB
2. AB
3. Pop
4. ATYCLB
5. JT
6. Zooropa
7. UF
8. Boy
9. R&H
10. War
11. October

Okay, I think it's something like that. The top 3 pretty much never changes. Rattle And Hum has always been close to my heart. I think the studio cuts together with Silver And Gold more than make up for the filler. If War were remastered, it may be higher up. UF is great but sometimes I get bored by some of the songs. ATYCLB would be higher up with better lyrics. HTDAAB would be higher with better lyrics and better production. I do admire Passengers much more than many of these albums but since I find it quite hard to even listen to the second half of that CD, it has to be the last.

Achtung Baby 10.0 (Superb, my favorite of all time by anyone)
The Joshua Tree 9.5 (Flawless, maybe their best album overall)
Zooropa 9.0 (all things considered, this thing is genius)
The Unforgettable Fire 8.5 (Great with a little filler )
War 8.5 (Great with slightly more filler)
Pop 8.0 (Half totally brilliant. half filler)
Rattle and Hum 8.0 (Really great in spots, some excess fat)
Passengers 7.5 (not to be taken that seriously,some of it is ace)
HTDAAB 7.0 (pretty much right down the middle)
ATYCLB 6.5 (the best songs are great, the other 7 or 8 are filler)
Boy 6.0 (outside of maybe 4 songs, crap)
October 5.5 (outside of maybe 3 songs, crap)

You won't be crucified if you explain your choices. 1 and 2 I can understand, UF has some stuff that I can't stand but I can see why others would like it. JT is obviously classic... with the exception of Mothers of the Disappeared, they're all great tracks. But....
Pop
Achtung Baby
Zooropa
Bomb
....are all worse than War?

Surely not.
