Most underrated U2 song: God Part II - Rattle & Hum

Most overrated U2 song: Electric Co. - Boy

Most underrated U2 album: Zooropa. New and old fans alike rode the wave of critic's negative opinions when this album came out only later to take a deeper listen and appreciate songs off of it. There is nothing more moving to see Edge & Bono standing next to each other with nothing but a guitar and their beautiful harmony serenading a quiet crowd with 'Stay'. I would say R&H but it did not suffer at the hands of the fans so badly as Zooropa did at first.

Most overrated U2 album: ATYCLB - It makes a better live concert than an album in my CD collection. I'd taken it out of rotation in favor of old favorites before attending my first concert for the album. Afterwards, I chose to compile live performances from ATYCLB or will stick in the DVD. It's just better live and raw.

First U2 song you ever heard: New Years Day - first video I saw on MTV way back in the days of the dinosaurs.

First U2 song you heard and loved: Hawkmoon 269 while not the first heard was perhaps my first obsession

All-time favourite U2 song: Bad - Unforgettable Fire

All-time favourite U2 album: Unforgettable Fire. What a poetic album.

First U2 album you owned: Joshua Tree (was a new release at the time)

U2 albums you haven't got (yet): Not a wit I don't got.

Favourite U2 era: ATYCLB - never have I been more excited to be a U2 fan in their concerts. Just the best large rock concert I have ever attended for both U2 and other acts. Next, R&H - you never knew where they were going to play and their collaborations were exquisite at times.

Least favourite U2 era: ZooTV - A great visual show that overshadowed the subtle nuances of a wonderful album.

An addition:
Favorite boot - Pop Sarejevo
Favorite import - Boy - English import, original cover art

YEAH! Same here! The album version is still my favorite above the live ones. It's just like two different songs, really.

Agreed - Every time they sing it live, it gets a new inflection, but I always adore the album version. :)

yeah i agree that ATYCLB songs are better live like you say, but the album is still fantastic.

I have the Boston tour like you, aswell as the Chicago and Holland elevation tours. All slightly different, all fantastic. But so is the ATYCLB album, especially as they dont play 'when i look at the world or 'ground beneath her feet' on the tours.
