the best of U2 (i.e. all of it)

A Listmania! list by le chic le freak "bookworm & cdworm" (Scotland)
 
Achtung Baby
1.  Achtung Baby by U2
The list author says:
  "My favourite album of all time. No words can accurately describe the brilliance of this album, but I can try by stating I own lots of CDs but none comes close to this. Pitch-black raw sexuality."
4.17   Used & New from: 0.25
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (116 customer reviews)

Zooropa
2.  Zooropa by U2
The list author says:
  "I love U2's 90s stuff best and Zooropa is fabulous. Highlights are Stay (Faraway, So Close!), Lemon and the title track."
10.20   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

All That You Can't Leave Behind
3.  All That You Can't Leave Behind by U2
The list author says:
  "At the risk of sounding ridiculous, this album saved me. It is cathartic brilliance and very underrated."
4.75   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (191 customer reviews)

The Joshua Tree
4.  The Joshua Tree by U2
The list author says:
  "Their best-known work and rightly so with its widescreen soundscapes and passionate, searching lyrics."
9.97   Used & New from: 0.90
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (159 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Pop
5.  Pop by U2
The list author says:
  "Another underrated gem, this time dark music coupled with even darker lyrics make for a wonderful and startling ride through faith, or lack of it."
4.18   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Boy
6.  Boy by U2
The list author says:
  "Still resonates with the urgency I imagine it did in 1980, the sound of a young band full of ideas and potential greatness. I especially love Electric Co. and An Cat Dubh."
13.36   Used & New from: 1.07
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Rattle And Hum
7.  Rattle And Hum by U2
The list author says:
  "U2 find the blues and undeserved criticism. A lovely album with classics like Angel Of Harlem and All I Want Is You."
8.09   Used & New from: 0.15
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
8.  How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb by U2
The list author says:
  "Most recent addition to the U2 canon, and the band sound as invigorated as ever, particularly on Vertigo and Love & Peace."
2.72   Used & New from: 0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (179 customer reviews)

The Unforgettable Fire
9.  The Unforgettable Fire by U2
The list author says:
  "Atmospheric and haunting, very mature and fascinating for a band of their then-age. Bad is sublime."
4.41   Used & New from: 0.16
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (66 customer reviews)

War
10.  War by U2
The list author says:
  "War is brash, brazen, Larry-drumming-madness, and as topical today as it was in '83 (when I was born!)."
4.88   Used & New from: 0.15
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

October
11.  October by U2
The list author says:
  "My least favourite, but still well worth owning, if only to hear the band at their rawest."
9.99   Used & New from: 0.34
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Under A Blood Red Sky
12.  Under A Blood Red Sky by U2
The list author says:
  "U2's first and only official live album, which captures the potency of their early gigs. Another live album would be much appreciated..."
7.00   Used & New from: 0.74
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Wide Awake In America
13.  Wide Awake In America by U2
The list author says:
  "A 4-track EP type thing worth getting for the rendition of Bad - actually for everything."
4.97   Used & New from: 0.23
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)
