My favourite album of the eighties.
With or without you and Running to stand still are outstanding tracks among a lot of other superb songs!

What can I say, this album opens with 3 of my favorite songs, and then continues strongly until the end (or almost the end.) It's mostly about the music, which has immense depth, quality and variety. The lyrics and direction of the album are decent. Definitely U2's best, and deserves it's ranking as one of the best albums ever.

The best album of the 80's and in my opinion still their best album. Full of great songs Where the Streets...... being the best and the final track Mothers..... being the weakest.

This is one of the rare few albums that the first 5 songs in a row are all classics.

not as good as achtung baby, but a classic in its own right and certainly the best album of the 1980's

Memorable album that turned U2 into a mega-musical presence. Often credited as their finest moment. I prefer the next two though.
