Oh... tough one! I'd have to say the 3-song closer from Achtung Baby is my favorite. Such a perfect ending for such a dark and moody album.

Not even the faintest hint of a contest. The Joshua Tree's Suite Of Death dominates.

I'm surprised you rank this one so high. I love it(as evidenced by my ranking above), but I didn't think you liked Pop that much.

Definitely Achtung Baby's Ultraviolet/Acrobat/Love is Blindness trinity.

I also give high points to Boy. I love Another Time, Another Place/Electric Co/Shadows and Tall Trees.

The top one's definitely the Joshua Tree. Nothing can beat that ending. Nothing.

I mean, come on. One Tree Hill/Exit/Mothers of the Disappeared?

Well, it contains two of my four favourite songs on Pop (the four are Last Night On Earth, Gone, Velvet Dress, and Wake Up Dead Man), and I'd probably rank Please fifth or sixth, even though I think its studio version is incredibly inferior to the live versions.

Pop's a hit and miss album for me. When it hits, it's some of U2's very best work.
