All That... opened the doors to a whole new audience much like Achtung Baby and the Joshua Tree did. There is really no question at all which U2 albums make up the "Big 3."

This is not to say that I don't find Pop a very good album. It is a great album as are all U2 albums. It is just obvious to me, and I'm sure many others feel the same way, that there are 3 albums here that are immortalized in music history. Simply put, you can not have a discussion about U2 with reference to one, two, or all three of these albums.

I couldn't agree more. These are the band's biggest albums (along with being my personal favorites) and they're simply the band at their finest. In my opinion, you just can't beat these three albums since they're three of the most influential records of the last twenty years.

BOOMCHA!!!!
I've gotta go with Pop!
ATYCLB is a great album, but Pop was just "different".
It was a totally different, exciting sound!
ATYCLB is calmer, and softer, and while that's ok,
I liked the crazy Pop sound!!
*but then again, that's just my own opinion*

I know that ATYCLB is going to win, but you've gotta agree that POP has some great songs!

this is a very close battle. Has ATYCLB been up against the UF yet? If not I think that would be a very close race. It seems like AB is number one Joshua Tree number two and there is almost a three way tie for number three with ATYCLB Pop and UF

Actually, now it's Pop 43 - ATYCLB 45.

Pop.

You would think ATYCLB would be trashing Pop, the way everyone treats those two albums. Pop as the failure, and ATYCLB as the success that brought U2 'back.'

Only a two vote difference.

hmmm...Well, around here, it seems that there are a LOT of Pop fans (myself included), so perhaps not...

I really do like Pop. But I rate ATYCLB up there with AB and JT as the "big three" albums though.

Come on ATYCLB! Get the recognition you deserve!!
