I'm exactly the same. In reality I think Joshua Tree is the better album, but I enjoy both of them.

Re: Whats your favourite U2 album

The Unforgetable Fire for their opening track (that intro still sends shivers down my spine )
and the Joshua Tree for everything else

Re: Whats your favourite U2 album

I loved all the albums up to and including Joshua tree, but that first track on Unforgettable fire makes it a winner....... I am a big U2 fan, although the later stuff is not as good as their earlier, more meaningfull (for want of a better word) songs.

Re: Whats your favourite U2 album

I have followed U2 since I heard there first single Another Day way back in 1980. There first album BOY had a raw energy to it as did WAR.OCTOBER flutuated between mellow and energy.The album that got them noticed was the JOSHUA TREE and after that all is history. As they progressed there albums have got better, and every album has a track that stands out. There later stuff, I think, shows the maturity of the band. They dabbled in techno music with POP and to be honest not one of my favourite albums although it does have a couple of tracks that I can quite happily listen to. I could go through them all and to pick a favourite album is a hard choice. So in light of that I will abstain from voting.

Re: Whats your favourite U2 album

Never took to U2 at all but always thought
"In the name of Love" was a great song...and

...despite the fact that I find this band remarkbly tedious

"One" is a sublime track, which is marvellous and full of passion

Re: Whats your favourite U2 album

Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby are great albums. If I had to take one or the other it would be Joshua Tree by a very slim margin.

Their latest is an improvement over the last couple. I'm a fan of U2, their Zoo TV tour (21/8/93 Wembley Stadium) was something special, no concert I have been to since has been on a patch on it. The volume and sound pressure was something to behold. Stereo MCs were support group, whatever happened to them?

One thing I like about U2 is their music is constantly evolving.
