I wouldn't say it holds up massively well but the 'Under a Blood Red Sky' EP was a big deal for me when it was released

It's tough cuz I love them all but, although they have moments, I agree on 13 & 14.
Do you not like No Line on the Horizon or do you just like the other ones that much better? NLOTH is top 3 for me. Breathe is quality & Moment of Surrender may be the best song they have ever written.
Elvis Presley & 4th of July are demos at best so, for that, The Unforgettable Fire can't be ranked as high.
The Joshua Tree may be their masterpiece but I have Achtung baby at #1.

1. Boy
2. Zooropa
3. Joshua Tree
4. Achtung
5. War
6 on - whatever

You rank "Ho And Hum" that high? Two good singles, and a bad live album as filler?

Yeah I think if you cut out the live shit on Hum it'd be a great album...  Lots of good stuff on it..
