I was surprised to see Zooropa beat The Unforgettable Fire last week, lets see if it can keep up its winning ways against the mighty Achtung Baby.

I'd love a remaster of Zooropa and Achtung Baby and Pop for that matter.  I just don't understand their thinking.

2 great albums...but, NOTHING can beat AB
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

Achtung Baby!
What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

5. Pop (15) 5/3/0 (+48)



Nice to see the Top 5 is correct, albeit in the wrong order (but no one's perfect).
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Looks like Zooropa is touching it a bit. I think it's the first round with any competing votes against AB (other than TJT - can't remember if they went head to head yet).

I think the Unforgettable Fire got 5 votes against it.
