So does 1 album get voted off the island or 2 in the early stages?  Currently there seem to be 2 that rise to the top.  I can't quite understand the strong dislike for HTDAAB.  I know there are some duds (for me LOPOE, MD, and Yahweh - better live, but not on the album), but I personally think Vertigo and ABOY rock, and OOTS is also really great.  I voted October.

If 2 are even by the time the poll ends, they're both off.

I voted Fire, just never really appealed to me as much as the others.  :'(

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.

They won't. I asked Adam when I met him, and he told me specifically that they won't ever do that.
Adam was actually quick to defend the album, which is great because I love it.

My vote was for Boy. First album, energetic, whatever. It's still rough listening.

I voted for rattle & hum, as much as I'm not a big fan of BOMB, rattle & hum is only half an album of new material, and only 2 -3 really strong  songs.
I think an album of all original material beats that by default, esp. if you include fast cars w/bomb.

I'm so confused about October. 

Boy, October & War are the holy trinity.
