U2... Their Best Album Ever?

Thu Feb 28, 2002 10:44 am

Is this last album "All That You Can't Leave Behind" their best album ever? I have them all except for the remix one that just came out. Its probably safe to say this is the most successful album by a veteran group ever. Already they have two Grammy's tonight and just had two songs nominated in the same category. Is that fair? LOL.

I'm a huge U2 fan, but I don't think All That You Can't Leave Behind is their best album. My personal favorites are Unforgettable Fire, October, Joshua Tree, and of course, "the B-sides."

All That You Can't Leave Behind is one of their best albums...at least in my opinion. Where would they be tonight if they didn't release it? They wouldn't be playing at the Grammys, thats for sure. Think of all the hit songs on it...Beautiful Day...Stuck in a Moment...Walk On...Elevation...The only other album that is comparable to it is The Joshua Tree,which had some spectaclar songs, including my fav (Where the streets have no name)
Overall, U2 is just an awesome band!  Big thumbs up

I have been listening to U2 forever, and probably the biggest "fan" here. With all honesty, I wouldn't say that ATYCLB is their best album. Their best albums, from the opinion of long time U2 fans, (not just the ones that grew just from ATYCLB), are Achtung Baby, and Joshua Tree. Those two are probably the two all-time greatest. Don't get me wrong, ATYCLB is an awesome awesome CD, but Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby are masterpieces from earlier years.

I have a question.. I may be mistaken, but, last years Grammy awards, didnt U2 win Album of the year? I cant remember. I know they won some awards.

The Album came out in 2000. If I am right, they will win Album of the year in back to back Grammy's. It doesnt seem right, but, it would be cool!

geez i was just about to comment the same rolex! Nobody seems to pay attention to your second post! As far as selling goes I do know its right up there, but i still think joshua tree holds more incredible facts regarding its popularity and selling. FSPilot just curious how many times have you seen U2 in concert?

KaiTakFan, and Hurricane.. Thank you very much. I am not pissed off at the others, just frustrating when nobody reads the whole thread.

Yes, All That You Can't Leave Behind is very good and I personally feel it is their best album.
