This is a masterpiece. It's not the first in my chart only because i prefer heavy, faster rock music genre.
The first three songs alone are worth the price.Very 80's mood, nice guitar, inspired Bono, beautuful sound owed also to Brian Eno's production...masterpiece.

U2 at their most pretentious. Back when it came out I forced myself to love it. It was U2 it couldn't be that I wasn't touched by it.

It didn't take long before I acknowledged U2 is not for me anymore, as pretentious as one can get taking themselves far too seriously.

The period between War and Achtung Baby is not for me. Although after Achtung Baby they weren't able to keep my interest anymore either.

Easily one of the best albums of the 1980s and one of the best ever. U2 has great variety with heavy rockers like Bullet the Blue Sky and quieter ballads with Running to Stand Still. Every song on here is excellent.

One of the greatest albums ever. U2 weaves between inspirational, heartbreaking, and sheer beauty from track to track. Highlights are Where the Streets Have No Name, With or Without You, and Red Hill Mining Town.

More unimaginative, derivative dross from the neanderthals of rock.

People generally score such high points I think. It makes no variation between one song and another. I really don't love all songs on this album, but adore a few.

Yes this is U2 at their best. A lot of good music on this album and it deserves to be in top fifty. It is very hard to pick out my favourite tracks on album. My least favourite is EXIT, and my two favourite are I STILL HAVEN'T WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR and ONE TREE HILL.
