As of now the two "singles" from SOI have a combined 11 votes, while The Troubles has 30. U2 sucks at identifying their strengths and weaknesses.

Take this poll outside of here and you'd get a different result methinks

I doubt that even most casual fans prefer The Miracle or Every Breaking Wave over The Troubles.

Cedarwood Road, EBW, and like a three-way tie between RBW, SLABT, and The Troubles; just depends on the day.

Good album overall, really. Once again, though, the "rawk" and "hit" songs stand as the weaklings of the bunch imo (The Miracle, SFS, Volcano) but still sound alright and better than some of their counterparts on the previous three albums.

I think Miracle is probably my favorite of the ''rawk" tunes.  It's pretty infectious and I find it gets in my head pretty often.  I'd put that at #4, but like riff I could easily put it in the top 3.  This album has a lot of songs I like though so it's hard for me to rank them.

Well, there are at least 6 of us that like Miracle! I like it mostly for it's fun aspect...sort of like Elevation.  It just makes me want to smile REAL big, and dance a bit. But the lyric "everything I've ever lost now has been returned" rings 100% true in my life, so...

1. Volcano
2. Cedarwood Road
3. California (There Is No End To Love)

Raised By Wolves is a close 4th place for me. Fell in love with this song since I saw it live on the I&E Tour - such power! #StrongerThanFear  8)

Only 5% have voted for the first single off the album - Joey Ramone

Maybe next time, the band ought to release the album first and then ask the fans to vote on the first single - that can be re-mastered and released for the download charts?

Every Breaking Wave and The Troubles. I just can't pick a 3rd song. The Troubles is one of my favourite songs for years though.

Troubles, California and Sleep.  Best album U2 have done since Pop.  Just a bit over-produced.
