Album words @ 01:03 am

I'm currently feelin: thoughtful thoughtful

A couple of years ago I started a thread on one of the U2 newsgroups in which I got people to choose a single word that they felt summarised each of the U2 albums. Not necessarily the theme of the album, but how it makes you feel (though you can interpret it whichever way you prefer). I don't *recall* this being discussed in the LJ community before, so I thought I'd suggest it here as well. :o)

You can read the original newsgroup thread here to see other people's suggestions. I'll lj-cut my own list so as not to influence anyone else who wants to try it:

Boy: Invigorating
October: Bleak
War: Cynical
Under A Blood Red Sky: Distant
The Unforgettable Fire: Soothing
The Joshua Tree: Big
Rattle & Hum: Attitude
Achtung Baby: Passionate
Zooropa: Comforting
Passengers: Offbeat
Pop: Familiar
All That You Can't Leave Behind: Tame

Interestingly enough, I just did that from scratch without reading the list I posted two years ago, and I didn't come up with the same word for a single album this time round.
