Normal Most top-heavy album

This is sort of a spin off on namkcur's thread about sides. Which U2 album in your opinion has the best songs at the beginning and the worst / mediocre ones towards the end?

I think for me it's Zooropa. Most of the time I only listen to tracks 1 - 5.

ATYCLB.

1-6 are good but 7-11(Wild Honey, Peace On Earth, When I Look At The World, New York, Grace) don't have much kick to them.

well... it depends on my mood. I do like Daddy's Gonna Pay, First Time and to a lesser extent Dirty Day and Wanderer. Don't really like Some Days except for that bass line.

lol... I was thinking of saying ATYCLB but it's not really top heavy IMO with Stuck in a Moment and Elevation in there.

that album holds a special memory for me now. the first thing i heard when i got home from the hospital was daddy's gonna pay. certain people i know have very strange senses of humour. i rocked out though.

i love the first time. i like dirty day but i can't remember if i like the album version better or that remix that was a b-side for some pop single. i'm so helpful, i know.

The 'Please' single had two Dirty Day remixes, the 'Junk Day' mix and the 'Bitter Kiss' mix.

The remix of Dirty Day is awful. Just awful. They should never have screwed around with the album version.

The Junk remix. I admit I haven't heard the other, but I'm not too eager to.

Unforgettable Fire, for sure. can't believe no one's mentioned it. I know Bad is number 7, but that's it and even that one is so much better live. And yeah 40 works great for concerts but I wouldn't call it a great song.
