Pop vs. ATYCLB: The Battle for Third Place!

Since all signs point to either Pop or ATYCLB ending up in third in this forum's overall album rankings, here's the poll to see which album ends up in the coveted number three slot. I've got a feeling that this one's going to go down to the wire.

1. Achtung Baby

2. The Joshua Tree

3. All That You Can't Leave Behind


3. Pop (beat Zooropa in a previous poll)

Zooropa (beat War in a previous poll)


Unranked albums:

Unforgettable Fire (beat War in a previous poll.)

Rattle and Hum (beat The B-Sides 1980-1990 in a previous poll.)



Under A Blood Red Sky

The B-Sides 1980-1990

ATYCLB is a far superior work.

POP. I will ALWAYS have a soft spot for POP, I think. It's just amazing to me.

ATYCLB is great too, but, for me, at least, it can't top POP.

even the people who do not like it should admit that at least the album is produced in a way that you can imagine this is the sound they were aiming for
“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”

VERY difficult. So hard to choose one of then.

In the end I chose ATYCLB due to the sheer beauty of some of its tracks (In A Little While, New York etc.)

I will be surpirsed if it wins here, but All That You Can't Leave Behind gets my vote because it is so much more likeable and listenable. It has so much deep feeling and emotion it makes me FEEL it. Bono's voice is endearing. Songs like Walk On and Beautiful Day are instant classics that will live on with the great ones.

POP!!!!! Although I love ATYCLB I think it's a little over-rated.
