For a new fan, which album first?

My father is starting to get into U2's music, and he's been borrowing my cds. The first cds he took to borrow were Zooropa and Pop, and I told him to put those back, and gave him Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby to start with. I didn't think as a new fan he'd be ready to handle Zooropa yet, and Pop I wasn't sure about either. Do you agree with the 2 I started him out with? What cds have you started a new fan out with?

JT and AB are excellent choices, in that order. Then go to October.

The first album I bought was UF and I didn´t like it until I became really addicted! Songs like EP and America are just not that easy for a "beginner"
If your father is into electronica at least a little bit, you just can start out with both Ab and JT, otherwise just give him JT. It´ll work fine

Yup, good two choices. I'd say give him War and UF afterwards.

Agree w/ JT & AB..... the "Best Of..." might be good too!

Yep....I agree too! JT & AB good choices!
Although, for me my 1st "cassette" was Under A Blood Red Sky" (in 1987)that got me started, and then saw them live, then bought Joshua Tree which made me into the U2 fan I am today!
