Joshua Tree vs. Achtung Baby

Which album in your opinion is better and had more of an effect on their careers and why?

I'd say Achtung Baby, because coming right out the gate with The Fly was amazing, and it brought in a whole new aspect for the band, and many new fans. Judging by how they made the album at 1st with little lyrics ideas and some melodies is genius,

you can't compare those two like this... JT shot them to 'superstardom' and so on , while AB was the key album to band's next decade.

Ah, the classic debate... it's hard to say which one is better, since each is just that solid in the eyes of a lot of people. But opinions are important... and in that case, I would choose Achtung Baby just based on the number of times I hear it.

A better idea: The Joshua Tree AND Achtung Baby.

Some versions of Achtung Baby have that little clover over Adam's jewels.

Some...uh...interesting remarks in this thread! Ha ha ha! Anyway, for me the choice is beyond clear: Achtung Baby. No way around it, boys and girls.

It depends. Joshua tree is pure poetry and is a artisitc masterpiece, but if I needed something to get me going, I would put in AB. I think Joshua Tree is better musically, but AB is just a more fun album to listen to.

The Joshua Tree, because "Streets", "Still havent found" and "With or without you" have to be in the top 5 from U2.

Achtung Baby - no doubt about it.
Joshua Tree is overrated in my opinion.

Hard to pick.
I think JT is better, however I would say AB was a bigger impact on their career.
