U2 Albums Tournament Round One: Part FIVE

The fifth part of the first round is All That You Can't Leave Behind vs. October. So, which will it be? The band's underrated follow up to Boy? Or the most critically acclaimed rock album of the new decade?

Simply put, this is a 12 album NCAA style bracket tournament to find out which U2 Album is the best. Albums were given rankings in advance based on number of copies sold, with the one exception being ATYCLB, which was given a higher ranking due to its popularity among fans. The final info from this will be combined with other recent polls to get an overall ranking of these 12 albums.

Here's the bracket with the numbers based on album sales (with one exception) :

(1) The Joshua Tree
vs. -------------------------------W=The Joshua Tree
(12) Pop

(6) The Unforgettable Fire
vs. -------------------------------W=The Unforgettable Fire
(7) Under A Blood Red Sky

(2) Achtung Baby
vs. -------------------------------W=?
(11) Boy

(5) War
vs. -------------------------------W=?
(8) Zooropa


vs. -------------------------------W=?
(10) October

(4) Rattle and Hum
(9) The B-Sides (1980-1990)

I like October a lot
but ATYCLB is in my U2 top 3
