Title: U2 Album Survivor game : Round 6
Post by: JuniorEmblem on February 11, 2009, 10:46:55 AM
OK, so in a late surge, Boy goes.  :'(

So, results so far, in order of least liked U2 album:

HTDAAB
October
Rattle and Hum
Zooropa
Boy

Round 6 is now underway. So, whether you vote strategically to pick a "most likely to get voted off anyway" to keep your fave up there longer, or whether you vote with your heart, the key thing is to vote. Once !

That being said, same again, ATYCLB has GOT to go !

Nooooooooooooo! Boy is gone.  :'(

I'm glad Pop and ATYCLB survived, but c'mon.

War has to go! It can't compete with the albums left.

Goodbye ATYCLB.

Because: Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day, Like A Song, Drowning Man, 40
stack up better as the "5 best" against the likes of
Beautiful Day, Stuck, Gone, Kite, In A Little While.

Easy!

edit: meaning, it was between War and ATYCLB for me!

ATYCLB must make a graceful exit.

War is great and needs to stay in for the long haul - at least another round or two.
This is getting more and more difficult. Once you get down to The Unforgettable Fire, The Joshua Tree, and Actung Baby with Pop still up, there are going to be some serious smack downs. Game on!

Who at this point would even dare cast a vote for Actung Baby or Joshua Tree?? Perhaps you need some serious U2 lessons!  ;)

Can War just peace out already?

Glad to see votes for Joshua Tree. That's next on my hit list.

I find it amusing how a few days ago there were conversations about ATYCLB being U2's third "masterpiece," yet right now it's being voted off.

This was my reaction exactly!!!
(I voted for War again :()

Random information, for no real reason: I just realized I haven't even considered voting for Pop in any of the rounds! I'm on a real Pop kick right now...I've always liked it, but have gone through periods where I haven't felt like listening to it for a while...but right now it's ALL I want to listen to, and I can't concieve how anyone could have ever thought it was anything less than a masterpiece. And some of the lyric writing just blows me a way with how good it is! I know this is a much-discussed topic, but...why are people so hard on it??? I'm glad it's a survivor though, so far - yay Pop!

Although it's good in its own right, ATYCLB just does not stand up to what's left.
I still can't believe Boy has gone!  :(

"TASTE IS THE ENEMY OF ART"
Title: Re: U2 Album Survivor game : Round 6
Post by: JuniorEmblem on February 11, 2009, 05:12:59 PM
I think we're seeing a demographic thing.

When the poll opens, the older audience is already awake and correctly voting for atyclb.

Then about Noon or so the teenagers wake up and cast their votes for War.

About 7 or 8 we'll see a resurgence of atyclb voters as the older fans who are blocked at work log in at home.

Finally about 3am we'll get the younger audience in again voting for war as they come home from wherever they've been.

Younger voter, voted ATYCLB (although in my mind there's little difference), and it turns out that it's now 14-12 (thus if I'd voted the other way, it'd be 13-13). This may prove interesting.

I've been ordering too much stuff off Amazon lately, so I didn't get it. I also found "Groundbreaking Coldplay: Inside The Greatest Band Eva" by Bono In Bonolands to be way too pricey for my liking.

It is really interesting to me how both the votes change over time (as Junior previously noted), but also how from 1 day to the next it varies so strongly.  Yesterday Pop was fighting for its life, but today it seems safe.

However, JT and AB?  I'll go get my baseball bat and join the rest of the villagers.

Oh, and I voted Pop (ducks and hides).

Thx Evel, I have been a fan for 26 years, no newbie here! I love war, but I don't play it as often as the other albums that is all behind my choices and it is all in fun anyway!
OH and #1 War, I think without Boy there is no U2, and that one already laid to rest, and I was one of the ones campaigning for it to stay.

Without ANY of these albums the following albums don't exist........

In that regard they are all equal.

Similarly, if you have been a fan for 25 years or 25 months, all opinions are equally valid.

Yeah, and I don't have my ticket stub from 1981 but I was there too..........

I was "there" in 1981, somewhere around January 14th but don't remember exactly, but not at the ritz, I don't even know what CITY the ritz is in.

And I don't give a rat's ar*e whether or not you believe me

That is b/c they are newbies and dont appreciate the real U2, and dont realise what the Album War meant to them, and without that album there is no U2....

What gives you the right to pass judgment like that?

Probably because there is a tendency for newer folk to pass over the 80-83 period , think you really have to delve a little deeper, listen to a few boots , read a bit of "u2 by u2" maybe. Really appreciated the nod the band gave this tour to the old stalwarts like AnCatDubh/Into The Heart, Electric Co , finishing shows with 40 like they always did etc etc
Anyhoo when's the next round?

I HAVE listened to several ancient bootlegs, and I HAVE read U2 by U2. I know that the early years were really exciting! It's just my personal taste that I like some later albums better. I'm not passing over the early days at all! Unforgettable Fire is one of my favorite albums, and I think that every single concert should end with 40. I honestly do get it. And trust me, every single young fan wishes they were there to experience the beginning of U2. Stop rubbing it in! :-\
