This will be a difficult vote. They’ve always been my 2 contenders for 3rd best album.

Hence, I will think about it and come back later in the week with my decision.

The band's two most experimental albums. I love both but TUF is definitely my pick.

Why would you listen more often to an album you prefer less?

Like i don't really care for ATYCLB but i find myself listening the second half at that album a lot just because its light chill music. 
I guess i'm not always in a Bad or Pride mood.  Zooropa was a fun album but TUF is brilliant and the band grew a lot on it.

After listening to both albums back-to-back, Zooropa gets my vote. But it was very close.
