What an interesting post and I certainly can see where you're coming from.... Perhaps the "Joshua Tree" just hasn't aged well, while those other three indeed have?

It is a very good point Mark72.

At the time, 'The Joshua Tree' certainly got the accolades. But it wasn't exactly a great period for music, so the time was right for U2's type of rock, being up against cheesy synths and hair metal.

I think U2, like Madonna, did greater work during the 90s.
