U2: The best ... and worst albums



Best and worst U2 albums Last week's battle over the best U2 album was so much fun, we're going to do ramp it up a little. For next week's Stuck in the '80s podcast, we're gonna rank the band's entire discography. Yep, all the way from 1980's Boy to 2009's No Line on the Horizon.

Plus, we'll bring back SIT80s heartthrob Tom Jones, who has a brand-new U2 story to share with everyone. Will it top the time I tried to leave my friend's girlfriend behind at the U2 show in Tampa back in '85? (She e-mailed last year to say all is NOT forgiven!) Tune in and find out.

In the meantime, we want your recommendations for our ranking. I know there's a lotta love for Joshua Tree out there. Maybe there's enough sentiment to even push it past Unforgettable Fire and Achtung Baby. For those who need the full list in chronological order, here it is:

  • Boy (1980)
  • October (1981)
  • War (1983)
  • The Unforgettable Fire (1984)
  • The Joshua Turee (1987)
  • Rattle and Hum (1988)
  • Achtung Baby (1991)
  • Zooropa (1993)
  • Pop (1997)
  • All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000)
  • How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004)
  • No Line on the Horizon (2009)
