At this point...it's impossible to decide...

I think the next few rounds are useless.  Might as well skip to the last round between Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby...lol

It's the journey that's fun, and also when we do it the other way around things change a bit as certain albums bring out certain emotions more

I'm sure he is.

However, I believe in playing fair, and as tempted as I am to lock the poll NOW and dump the "turd masterpiece", I will let things run their true course.

What!? It's between Pop and All That You Can't Leave Behind!?  :o

What happened while I was at work?  ???

War is a great album, but it's no where near as great as ATYCLB. It's also no where near the raw perfection that is Pop.

Sorry - one of the Pop votes is mine.  They aren't all Jick.  Currently it's 10 (ATYCLB) to 9 (POP) to 9 (Boy).

I said it before - this round is where it gets hard to choose.  You also have different folks with strong opinions either way, and that adds to the fun of it all.  

With the 3 current "losers", I think there are gems on each and there are several duds on each.  ATYCLB's last 1/2 falls flat, but I can always eject the CD after "In a Little While", so that's 6 solid songs.  Boy is nowhere near as mature as their later stuff, but Electric Co. and I Will Follow ROCK, and it is pretty amazing for an album debut.  Pop to me never all came together as a cohesive unit, and I find myself skipping a LOT of tracks.  I only really like Gone, Velvet Dress, and Please (Mofo has a great beat too), but HATE Miami.

Regardless of the order, I think that these 3 will be the next to go - too many of us old guys who like the War album.
