Way too early to rank HTDAAB! Though music snobs (not excluding myself) don't like to think so, the destiny of the album will rest to some extent on how well the general public outside of interference.com receives the album.

As for the rest of the albums:

1) Joshua Tree
2) Achtung Baby
3) War
4) Unforgettable Fire
5) All that You Can't Leave Behind
6) Boy
7) October
8) Pop
9) Rattle and Hum
10) Zooropa

On my first couple listens I think HTDAAB will fit somewhere in the top five. Remembering my first listen to ATYCLB four years ago, this album is way more immediate and I like more of the tracks better.

Didn't hear htdaab so:
1.Achtung Baby
2.The Joshua Tree
3.All that you can't leave behind
4.Boy
5.Pop
6.Zooropa
7.The Unforgettable Fire
8.War
9.Rattle and Hum
10.October

But this is temp, because i'm young u2 fan and i dont know alla songs by heart. Only Achtung is complete album; Joshua lacks one bit; boy is all the same,just different lyrics; October is dark,ugly and boring;War has three songs; unforgettable has an instrumental!!!; rattle is copy of their work; zooropa has 5 songs that are boring; so does pop; and atyclb has three songs that they should reconsider getting rid of.

It's funny that all albums have two songs that are boring!
