U2 What's your favorit U2 album and why?
For me, it'll always be Joshua Tree. I can't imagine three better songs starting off any album - ever - than Streets, Still Haven't Found and WOWY. Along with Running, One Tree Hill and In God's Country, this is easily one of the best rock albums ever recorded.
JT also just seems to be there with some of my fondest memories. I'll never forget when it came out 2 months before high school graduation in '87; it accompanied me on my 2-month back-pack trek across Europe the summer of '92 (helping me bide the time on many a train and ferry ride); and was a comforting reminder of home during the first few weeks after I moved to Taiwan in '93.
More fans would rate AB their favorite than JT, but for me, JT will always be U2 at its most "U2-ish."
How about the rest of you?
