Wait... I only counted 11, I'm forgetting some. STINK!! Are we counting the best of's? But I'd still be missing one. :/ *grumbles at what is scientifically called "retrieval failure" as she goes to thumb through her CDs again* Sorry, guys. Truly.

Oh man. This is off the top of my head, and changes frequently.

1. Achtung Baby
2. Rattle and Hum
3. All that You Can't Leave Behind
4. The Joshua Tree
5. Boy
6. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
7. War
8. The Unforgettable Fire
9. Pop (mostly down here because my sister stole the CD so I haven't listened to it in so long that it's hard to place it).
10.Zooropa
11. Under a Blood Red Sky
12. October

I didn't include the Best Of Albums. Not because I don't think they're real albums, but I had such a hard time placing them that I decided to omit them.

...14? That's including the Best Ofs, I assume? I don't include them because they consist of songs from other albums... and I don't include UABRS since it's entirely live. So I'll go with studio:

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

I'm surprised R&H isn't getting more love. You're not the first person to rank it so low.

Personally I like that album more than at least five others I can think of....

You do like hard questions, hmmm?

1. Achtung Baby
2. Joshua Tree
3. ATYCLB
4. HTDAAB
5. Rattle and Hum
6. Unforgetabble Fire
7. Pop

That's all I feel qualified to list at the moment. I have only recently obtained Boy, War, and October, and Under A Blood Red Sky. I don't want to judge them until I really know all the songs - and even then I probably wouldn't list the UABRS because all live recordings of songs from their first albums.

I wouldn't list the Best Ofs because they are mostly republished songs. I do however ADORE The Sweetest Thing, The Hands that Built America, and Electrical Storm which were all new.

Impossible Question?

Yes!! :p

1. Achtung Baby
2. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
3. Errrr......

Zooropa, Boy, TJT, Pop, R&H, War, TUF... they're all so wonderful for different moods, I wouldn't have a clue how to rank them. October and ATYCLB would ptobably be bringing up the rear but that's all I can say.
