U2 Album Survivor game : Round 1
« on: February 06, 2009, 11:55:19 AM »
So here's how it works (saw this on another site), vote for the album you like the LEAST. Poll will stay open for 24 hours only, maybe longer on weekends if not as many are voting.

I have not included live albums, please only consider the studio content of R+H

Passengers also is excluded, as it is not sold under the name "U2"

You cannot peek at the results prior to voting, this is to prevent strategic voting.

I will cast my vote first, htdaab

Bomb for me, Octobers got Gloria, I Fall Down, Tomorrow & the title track vs COBL

I like Bomb, every song is good its just rarely great IMO

Love 'em all - but seems like I have the fewest songs from October.  HTDAAB speaks to the "mature" adult (interestingly, I'm close to the same age the band was when they released it.  I know this is a lot of people's least favorite - out of curiosity, does this album (again, showing my age) appeal to the older group of fans?

Don't like Pop - it never gets much plays on my iPod compared with How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb or Achtung Baby. If they completely re-record it then I might try it again.

I think thats true in some respects. Maybe if I have kids and stuff and a become a bit more world weary, things like OOTS & SYCMIOYO will speak to me a little more directly.

Please make sure to vote in each round.

Note, this will be followed by a "Favorite Album" Survivor game later. Interesting to see how certain albums affect people a certain way, trust me......typically the results come out differently in each one even when the same people vote.

I love them all but Zooropa is the one I listen to least. That is the only reason I voted for it here.With that said, it does have one of my all time favorite U2 songs on it-Stay!  So there you go. They are all great to me.

I voted for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Just as its my 'least favorite' that's all, and thats how I'm going to vote right up until the end.

Now, are bets allowed? If so, I bet every forum member $1000 that the final two comes down to Joshua Tree & Actung Baby  ;)

I'd call it "least listened to" rather and "least favorite," since that what it seems to be for a lot of people.

War for me.
