Under A Blood Red Sky vs. The B-Sides (1980-1990)

So, of the two still unranked albums, which will be the victor?

Personally, I think that a lot of the b-sides aren't that interesting, while the band's only official live album is 35 minutes of pure U2 energy.

Ranking so far:

1. Achtung Baby

2. The Joshua Tree (finished second to Achtung Baby in the NCAA style tournament)

3. The Unforgettable Fire (beat out ATYCLB and a group of others to claim the No. 3 slot)

4. All That You Can't Leave Behind (beat Pop in a recent poll, along with a few others)

5. Pop (beat Zooropa in a previous poll)

6. Zooropa (beat War in a previous poll)

7. War (beat Rattle and Hum in a previous poll)

8. Boy (beat Rattle and Hum in a previous poll)

9. Rattle and Hum (beat The B-Sides 1980-1990 in a previous poll, beat October as well)

10. October



Unranked Albums:

Under A Blood Red Sky

The B-Sides 1980-1990

Don't own the b-sides (yet ), but I have to go with UABRS anyway since Party Girl's on it it.

the b-sides, definitely!

btw fallingstar, the b-sides cd has party girl too...although it's the scary, ultra-creepy studio version and not the groovy live one on uabrs!

Under a Blood Red Sky. Raw energy, great performance.

I enjoy a lot of the B-Sides, but not all of them on the album. I mean, they're b-sides for a reason, right?

Love the b-sides more because it could be viewed as experimental material. Just because it is a b-side it doesn't necessarily mean that its inferior, but it just didn't fit or (Sweetest Thing) wasn't finished.

me too. i have a bootleg comprised of b-sides, mostly 80's, and there's a lot of stuff that's on there and not on the official one (like treasure, boomerang 2, boy/girl, etc.) and it's really groovy! can't wait till i get my ipod so i can listen to everything at once.

I've been gone the past few days, so that's why you haven't heard for me. As for this poll, it's still too close too call. So, I'm giving this thread a huge BUMP.

UABRS...AWESOME!

The 80s B-sides CD was lacking some of my favorite 80s b-sides and non-album songs.
