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
