3rd place final: The Troubles vs Magnificent
« on: May 02, 2015, 11:17:21 PM »
Originally I started this poll because there had been some discussion about how great Magnificent is and how it stacks up against Songs of Innocence. Well it made it pretty far. I wonder how it will go against The Troubles for third place.

It's a really tough vote, but Magnificent has eternal depth for me and so it gets my vote.

I think "The Troubles" is a fine song, but I do find it a bit repetitive after a while, which is why I voted EBW. I vote Magnificent for the same reason.

My top 4 from these albums would have been 1. Invisible 2. The Crystal Ballroom 3. California 4. No Line on the Horizon

I love both songs - more than EBW and MOS which won the votes.
Well, by very little it is the Troubles for me.

Same. One of their very best songs. Magnificent is pleasant enough, but nothing spectacular, and like everything on that album it had to grow on me.
