What Is U2's Worst Album?

O.K., enough with all of these positive threads. Time for some very negative thinking.

Which album do you think is U2's worst album? If you can't answer the question that way, then, which album do you consider your least favorite?

It's hard to say cause they're all good, but I chose October. It's probably the album I listen to the least.

But I voted for Zooropa. By the way, the bias in the comments next to the choices is totally reprehensible!

I had nothing to do with what the albums thought of themselves. Clearly "Zooropa" thought very highly of itself, although I think poor "October" has a complex. And I think "Joshua Tree" and "Achtung Baby" have got attitudes, not to mention some rivalry.

You mean October has low self-esteem because everyone is down on it for no good reason? Well, that makes sense.

I voted for Pop, although I do like it a lot more now than when it was first released.

I agree Spyplane!

Except for the exceptionally hot Your Blue Room and a couple others. Passengers has got to be the worst. October may not be their tighest albumn but the title track makes up for it.

Doctorwho, I'll give you three guesses what I voted for. It's got 2 letters in the title, and it's not from the 80's!

I love being the only one voting for something...
Wide Awake.. two live songs and two songs I don't particularly care for. While Bad and ASOH do give it some love, if Satan came to me and said "Give me one of your U2 albums or I will steal your soul" that would definately be the first to go.

[color=royal blue]I'm with you! I could never get into that too much.....I can't believe so many people dislike "October!" I love "October." I even wrote a poem referring to it fer English class.

Darn it. :P

To each his own, I s'pose.

I voted for WAR. It's not really "bad", it's just that I find most of the songs really shrill and Bono's banshee wail impossible to sit through. I don't mind SBS, New Year's Day & 40 live, though.

R&H is a mess, it has some great songs on it but it just doesn't work as a cohesive album.

And it shows on October that Bono's lyrics were lost. I think it is a miracle that it wasn't much, much worse.

This is an edit since I made a lame mistake and was too late to edit.

Okay don't guess too hard, it's Pop. I don't like it. I didn't like it when it was new and I still don't like it at all.

I voted for October. Out of all of U2's albums, I'd say it's the weakest one to me (I don't count Passengers as a U2 album, so I didn't even consider it in this poll ).

That said, I still like listening to October. The title track is beautiful, Tomorrow sounds really cool (I wonder what they could've done with it if the album wasn't rushed and lyrics lost) and Gloria, aside from being a great song, contains some of Adam's best playing, imo.
