Ranking the U2 Albums

Here is a list of U2's studio albums by order of preference. That is favorite to least favorite.

1. The Joshua Tree
1. All That You Can't Leave Behind*
2. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
3. No Line on the Horizon
4. Achtung Baby
5. Rattle and Hum
6. War
7. Unforgettable Fire
8. October
9. Zooropa
10. Boy
11. Pop

*There are two listed in the #1 preference because these two albums tie in my opinion. I think The Joshua Tree is an amazing album but that it was equaled by All That You Can't Leave Behind.


  1. Here’s my list of U2 albums in order of preference. (Note – I have not included Zooropa, Pop, or No Line on the Horizon because I have never owned these albums.)

    1. Rattle & Hum
    2. The Joshua Tree
    3. The Unforgettable Fire
    4. Achtung Baby
    5. War
    6. Boy
    7. All That You Can’t Leave Behind
    8. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
    9. October

    You should do one of these posts for ALL/Descendents.

  2. I included Zoorpoa and Pop on the list even though I am not crazy about them but notice they are way down at the bottom of my list though. Boy too. Never been too crazy about that one.

    I can't believe that you list ATYCLB so far down the list!

    Hmmm...ranking the Descendents/All albums. What a good idea.

  3. I honestly don’t know that album all that well. The songs from it that U2 performed on the Vertigo DVD were good though.

    You totally need to do Descendents and ALL versions of this post!
