Best U2 album ever, and also has sentimental value for me. I remember my school bus driver playing Joshua Tree and I didn't know who the songs were by at the time, but "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" may be my first favorite song ever.

First half has a lot of great hits but it losses it steam by the end. All in all a good album.

Never understood the hype about this one. Where The Streets Have No Name is a great song, but the rest is just made to sell... However, that's only a personal opinion.

Let it build and ebb and wash and thunder in the background and you'll hear something special -- mournful and passionate, stately and involved.
Read the lyrics and you won't wince.
Tune in Bono's vocals and you'll encounter one of the worst cases of significance ever to afflict a deserving candidate for superstardom.

A very, very great album, I agree with BEA that is the 4th best in the 80's, after Stone Roses, The Queen Is Dead and Doolittle.

I respectfully ask those who think side 2 is a let down to listen to "One Tree Hill" a few more times.

Y'know, I don't WANT to like U2, but I would be lying if I said that I didn't think this album is really gorgeous and nearly perfect.
