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

running to stand still is the best u2 song for miles.
in summary an outstanding pop-rock album with some fillers at the end.

This album has some of the best songs of all time on it (Where The Streets Have No Name, With Or Without You, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For) and less well known gems (One Tree Hill, Red Hill Mining Town) but is let down by some weaker tracks, especially towards the end (Bullet The Blue Sky, Exit, Mothers Of The Disappeared). A bit inconsistent but the great songs ensure it has a good rating

The Joshua Tree is often a very controversial chart pick because of the sheer amount of hate it receives from our forum regulars. And yes, I can see where the hate is coming from. But every time I listen to this album, I completely forget the constant lashings that the members here give this album. For one, the production work of Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno is absolutely stellar. This record just sounds fantastic. Not only that, the album is filled to the brim with a staggering amount of emotion. Tracks like "Running to Stand Still" make me just want to sit down and cry. Bono puts so much emotion into his vocals, it is amazing the emotion he can convey at times. The Edge's guitar work is fantastic, too. It sounds dreamy, and his riffs really add a lot to the album. U2 are very tight playing wise. Every one of these tracks are just great, not a single bad one. I love this album, and I feel that no one here can change that.

To be honest I liked this more than I thought I would. But it's still so boring and overearnest...
