U2 Album Survivor game : Round 9
« on: February 14, 2009, 08:54:10 AM »
It was tooth and nail for a while, but UF finally surged ahead late.

A pity to see Pop go, but we are now left with the 3 Masterpieces, or near masterpieces, as decided by U2 fans, not stupid rags like Rolling Stone who gave UF a pretty scathing review when it came out IIRC.

Anyhow, Round 9 will probably be a foregone conclusion, but you never know. I thought at this point I'd be voting UF. it really depends, what's a better listen from start to finish ? AB. More consistent. But like Pop, AB for me doesn't have a real standout song like Bad or ASOH.

Sure it has some great ones, Ultraviolet, Acrobat, UTTEOTW, The Fly, One, etc. But if like someone mentioned in Round 8, if I use the desert-island criteria which would I rather have ? I'd rather have UF.

So, Achtung Baby, off you go. Raus ! Raus !

Eh?  I'm confused.  TUF got 32 votes and Pop only got 28.  How come Pop gets voted off?
