Yet another U2 post: The albums ranked in order

Posted by Chance on March 25, 2009

An article on @U2.com ranks all the U2 albums, putting the most recent No Line on the Horizon dead last.  Interestingly enough, they rank War the #1 album (with songs like “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “New Years Day”).

If I had to rate them off-hand according to my personal opinion, I would have:

1.  The Joshua Tree

2. Achtung Baby – a close second

3. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

4. All that You Can’t Leave Behind ( in terms of U2’s career, more significant than the previous album, due to hits like “Beautiful Day”, “Stuck in a Moment…”, and “Elevation” that put them back on the map. )

5.  No Line on the Horizon

6. War

7. The Unforgettable Fire

8. Rattle and Hum

From that point they are all tied or I don’t have the album.

The ones I listen to on a regular basis are the last three, 3, 4, and 5.  The albums 6-8 are almost tied.
