really?

War rocks hard !

I mean come on!, U2 didnt get any more rock than SBS and The Refugee! And its Larry's best album! He is so in his element. (but fingers crossed they give us some quality drumming oppurtunities on the next album! Larry is seriously underused!)

I think War beats Pop and AB, just because it sounds so much more driven. They are angry and full of energy and you can hear it in every beat, lyric and note. I love it!

BOY 8 Votes

WAR 21 Votes

Achtung Baby 22 Votes

POP 2 Votes

Rattle And Hum 1 Votes

October 5 Votes

HTDAAB 1 Vote




Remember folks, its U2's hardest rocking album, not what you think is U2's best album.

I agree that War has a certain drive to it, but at the same time it also has some mellow acustic pieces. In any event, my vote was for Boy.

October's rocking songs = 6

War's rocking songs = 5

Boy's rocking songs = 5

Achtung Baby's rocking songs = maybe 4




I guess people have many differing views of what a hard rocking song is.

The Electric Co aside, I wouldn't see Boy as a rock album at all, I see it very much in the post-punk Television/Blondie style. But each to their own.

U2 said once that they are just a loud folk/gospel band.

Definitelty War, Achtung Baby, then Boy. I will have to take another listen to Pop before I put that anywhere here, but from what I remember it has a case.(especially mofo, last night on earth and gone from Mexico City DVD)
