Cool, cool...I'm not sure if UF should have been in the 3 slot, but hey, it's a good album...I agree w/ the person before me, POP should have been higher.

hmmm, i just figured what the heck, i might as well give my personal ranking too.

1. achtung baby!!
2. the unforgettable fire
3. boy
4. pop
5. war
6. zooropa
7. b-sides 80-90
8. the joshua tree
9. october
10. rattle and hum
11. all that you can't leave behind
12. under a blood red sky

honourable mention: wide awake in america. even if this were to be included on this, i'd still rank it #13. why? it's only four songs, there have been U2 singles with more tracks to offer. it's got good songs though. but now the two studio albums can be found on the 80-90 b-sides cd so it's a moot point.

I pretty much agree with BigMacPhisto's personal list, but I would have War and UF above Zooropa. As for the voting list, I have issues with War being so far down the list. I think the older albums didn't do well due to the fact that there are so many newer fans here who don't really appreciate them.

Here's my list:

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

I didn't rank Under a Blood Red Sky and the 1980-1990 b-sides because it didn't seem right to include them on the same list as studio albums.

It's a very compressed list, though; there's really not much room between #6 and #10.

Disapointing. Agree with AB in first place though.

My top 4:

Achtung Baby
All That You Can't Leave Behind
The Joshua Tree
Pop

Changes around a lot though!
