Yeah, it's pretty clear that for the most part those of us who are contemplating bifocals pretty much all prefer JT, and those of you who were needing parental help wiping yer asses when JT came out prefer AB.

Though it looks like those who were really young even when AB came out could go either way.

I'm a very old, very weathered 22 years...and Achtung Baby speaks to me a lot more. It's not only my favorite U2 album--it is, quite simply, the greatest album in the history of recorded music.

I also want to add that while AB is a better whole album since there are really no songs on it I don't like as opposed to JT with 2 or 3 I don't like (Mothers, Exit and BTBS which I used to like but have come to not like) of the songs on JT I do like, I like them more than the songs I like on AB and that makes the difference. Plus a very strong attachment to the time and the era and the nostalgia (last year of high school) and the look So this is something that does not come into it for someone who wasn't around or doesn't remember those days so I guess that is partly what the original poster meant by the age thing.

Exactly. It was so ground breaking at the time, you really had to be there as it were.

Much the same way I don't "get" what all the fuss about much of the Beatles stuff is about, (they were already old hat by the time my musical tastes developed past Slade and T-Rex !)

LOL! I'm almost the opposite. Loved JT in '87/'88, but grew tired of the "serious" side of U2. Wanted some "fun" rock songs.

Hence, my answer is 40 and I prefer AB. Don't hate JT, but it's amongst the least favorite of my U2 albums (even though I probably know that album the best).
