Edge with hair, Bono without sunglasses -- those were the days.

The Unforgettable Fire remains their finest album.

I only found out recently that the Edge and Clayton were both born in England.

They have made some great records.

No it's not.


The Joshua Tree, U2's fifth studio album, was released in March 1987 and was instantly met with massive critical and commercial favor. And while prior albums like War and Unforgettable Fire had thrust the band into arena rock territory, it was JT that truly made them stadium stars the world over.

Venturing away from their post-punk roots, Bono and company began experimenting with blues and gospel elements, while meshing it all together with their signature guitar-driven sound.

Seminal tracks like "Where The Streets Have No Name," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," and "With or Without You" still resonate loud and clear. And while the band has gone on to create some incredible music, The Joshua Tree stands as the benchmark in their aural legacy to the world.

It's pretty funny to note this author places Achtung Baby at #2.

He must be a good friend of your muse, Matthew Stephens.

The one and only Google-King are you. It's just one of the statements, The Joshua Tree, is U2's best album. Ever. You haven't got a clue what you talking about, as you enjoying Beatles -fetish.

Nice to see some fellow-morons, to back you up.

How far you already up in the fake doctor's a$$? Must be crowded over there. You are infromed the c*ck-sucking task is already given to Midnightz, i hope?. Maybe ''The Doc'' has another ''job'' you can fulfil, in Doc's own army?

BTW, I never knew that half of U2 is English -- the Beatles were an English band!!!

David Howell Evans was born at the Barking Maternity Hospital, Essex, England to Welsh parents Garvin and Gwenda Evans.

Clayton is the elder child of Brian and Jo Clayton, born on 13 March 1960 in Chinnor, Oxfordshire, England.

Haha..Always hated Level 42, Prince had some great records and U2 of course, well, great live. Their earlier material being superior to the more recent stuff. Not their strongest song but I still love "Angel Of Harlem" recorded at Sun of course complete with the Memphis horns.
