wink What U2 albums in your opinion constitute Tier One: the cream of the crop?

Which of U2's albums scream classic in your book, their "masterpieces" if you will?

Please think and vote. There are many choices.

I voted for 'other' coz mine would be UF, AB and HTDAAB coz to me these are the most consistent albums U2 have ever done. All the rest of the albums, IMO, are just a collection of a few great songs, some mediocre ramblings and some not so great tunes!!

You know, Bono sings on Slug, Miss Sarajevo, Your Blue Room and Always Forever Now. Does he sing on Ok Computer?

There'll be one day sometime where I kick off at anyone liking Pop, never mind considering it to be a classic. Until then I'll restrain myself, count to ten, and remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. \

BTW...JT and Boy. ATYCLB close and it's too early to tell with HTDAAB.

Well, the difference is that Million Dollar Hotel is an actual movie. And so it's an actual soundtrack. Whereas Original Soundtracks 1 is NOT a movie soundtrack since those films are all fictional. It is more like a complete album by Brian Eno and U2. That's what I believe anyway.
