This is looking to be the easiest of the polls. Exactly 4 songs are out ahead of the others.

Electrical Storm is in my top 3 of most underrated U2 songs ever.  What a gem

True
Me too to this.  It always comes up when I've got my player on shuffle, and I'm never disappointed.

Because it has the misfortune of being on October, an album that is summarily dismissed by many people who I'm not even convinced have ever actually listened to it.

LIB & Tomorrow.

I'm not going to waste a vote on Bad, Gone and One because they'll all go through.

I got RIPPED APART by Exile yesterday for saying the same thing about songs on ATYCLB, Bomb, and NLOTH

You and Droo are probably both wrong in that most more than casual fans have indeed listened to the albums you both mention.

October is a great album. Tomorrow is far superior to IALW. Intitialy I really liked IALW, but as time passes I find it more and more irritating. Same thing with Stuck. Now that I think of it, most of that album (ATYCLB) has lost a lot of favor with me. Not sure why, I loved it when it came out.

In the last group I had to choose between three of my all time favs, but this time I'm luke-warm about all of them :(

Electrical Storm

This just me dorking out a bit, but I think the forum would be a much more hilarious place if we capitalized things like RIPPED APART more often (and made them in a larger font, obviously).
