Ranking U2 - From 'Boy' to 'No Line on the Horizon'

Today marks the second edition of a special series within my weekly feature, Friday on the Turntable. Instead of looking at one album, I am featuring all of U2's records from 1980 - 2009 - and ranking them! It was a mammoth task, and proved frustrating when putting albums that I love against other ones that I love. Nonetheless, I've provided a ranked list - from #12 - #1. While I did include Rattle And Hum, I left off regular live albums and EPs.

If you would like the short / textual version of the list, please scroll past the video. As always, I look forward to reading your comments and feedback. If you missed our 20 Best Lesser Known U2 Songs feature, click here after you're done enjoying this post.

Here we go...
