Tracks 1 - 6 HTDAAB v AB

hmmm, surely there is no contest, should be AB, or should it...

Zoo station v Vertigo = Zoo Station (1-0)
Even Better v MD = tough!! draw (1-0)
One v SYCMIOYO = for me and I'm gonna get panned for this = draw (1-0)
Until the end v LAPOE = Until the end (2-0)
Who's gonna v City of... = draw (2-0)
Your so cruel v ABOY = Your so cruel (3-0)

So AB wins easily I think....even with my crazy scoring system!

1. Vertigo does it for me Zoostation is one of the weaker tracks on Achtung Baby
2. Draw...both amazing songs cant chose between them
3. Draw....both classics cant chose between them
4. Until The End Of The World...amazing album and live track one of my all time favourites
5. City Of Blinding Lights is better then the album version of Horses...if it was the temple bar mix it would be a lot tougher choice.
6. So Cruel....most under rated song on Achtung Baby and just a brilliant track

So therefore I have it as a dead even draw....pretty amazing considering I didnt think anything could ever beat Achtung Baby for me.

I can see the post comparing HTDAAB to ATYCLB because U2 is in this sort of "phase" right now, but I find no way to compare different phases. How can you compare HTDAAB where U2 is going back to the basics to an album where U2 wanted to destroy the basic things that made them great? They're too different IMO to compare this way.

Your joking right.......1-6 Achtung Baby pisses all over the new stuff! Jesus even the b-sides from 91-92 (satellite of love, Salome, Where did it all go wrong) pisses all over the new stuff!

I would have thought the same, well maybe not "pisses all over" but certainly better as it is my favorite album of all time. But when I rate the songs from the first half of both albums, they end up about the same. Second half of AB is better and the album flows better overall, so I still go with AB (then JT).

If only U2 could continue to write songs as great as:

Zoo Station,
WGRYWH,
Mysterious Ways,
TTTYAATW,
Ultra Violet.

Unlike the current radio friendly dross...

I fear those days are gone forever.

1. Zoo Station vs Ipod jingle = ZOO
2. EBTTRT vs MD = MD
3. One vs Sometimes... = ha ha
4. UTEOTW vs LAPOE = UTEOTW (close one here)
5. WGRYWH vs COBL = COBL
6. So Cruel vs ABOY = So Cruel (another close one)

Hey, I like Achtung! twice as much as HTDAAB. (4-2) I thought it might turn out this way

Oh, these vs. threads are SO much fun.

1. Vertigo beats ZS handily. It's a much more complete song
2. MD defeats EBTTRT. I like it's songwriting and gorgeousness better.
3. One defeats SYCMIOYO barely. Both very moving songs, but One goes a little deeper into the heart of humanity.
4. UTEOTW beats LAPOE. This is a close call, too. 'World' just comes together a little better IMO.
5. COBL takes down WGRYWH. It's a helluva alot more timeless sounding and Edge's ascending guitar figure behind the chorus is better than any of his support work on 'Horses'. Although the intro to 'Horses' is outstanding it's not a substantive part of the song.
6. SC beats ABOY barely. SC is a masterwork of bitterness. I'm not sure ABOY is a masterwork of anything. It's a strong song , nonetheless.


3-3 is the final score! Guess I'm gonna need some sort of tiebreaker.

Hehehe for a mnute I thought you might be serious. Good joke Vertigo beats Zoo Station hehehe and then Miracle Drug Beats Even better than the real thing hehehe, but what finally made me twig to your MADDDDDDDD sense of humour was COBL(the mono mix) beating Who's gonna ride your wild horses. You guys on here are so humorous, you kill me you really do.
