After some debate Iím going with The Unforgettable Fire mainly to hear Pride with virgin ears. Itís so powerful on a first listen. I want to feel that again. I probably heard it on the radio when I was 5 but it still had such an impact.  Some albums need multiple listens, But the big songs here deliver

ďBadĒ and ďAsohĒ are a bonus

I'd go with Zooropa. It's such a trippy ride and unlike anything else in their discography.

Thanks. 

Achtung Baby is my favorite album.  But it takes some time for your brain to unpackage and truly appreciate the greatness of the best songs.  Uteotw, The Fly. 

I think hearing an 80s warhorse for the first time is more special given the possibility.

My memory has gone and I can't remember anything of any use.  So I looked up U2 discography online and found that Boy was the first album.  So I'll start at the beginning.  It may help (?).

You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

I voted for UF. It's not my favorite album, and it doesn't contain my favorite song. But, to hear it again as if it was the first time...yeah, it's gotta be UF. I actually surprised myself with this answer.

Achtung Baby.  I fell in love with UTEOTW the very first time I heard it.  I immediately felt the darkness.

an tha & Tumbling Dice, I chose both of those before finally going with UF...I'm glad someone chose them for me! My finger was jerking back and forth for quite awhile before finally clicking on SUBMIT.

Achtung Baby. That was the first album that I'd ever listened to in full, and I still vividly remember listening to it while my family and I were driving to Florida for vacation.

Pop, of course, comes in second place. I might like it more than Achtung Baby, but I can't recall having any memory like that attached to it.

I'm glad to see TUF getting so much love in this thread. I remember being confused by it on first listen and it took a couple years to grow on me; now it's near the top of my list. I remember it being the first U2 album that I really had to wrestle with a little bit and those often end up being the records that stick with you. :)

I remain strongly of the opinion that TUF was u2's best 80's album and pisses all over TJT.
