Title: U2 Album Cover Survivor Game Round 1
Post by: shockdocta22 on February 16, 2009, 10:08:09 AM
The creator of the Albums survivor game wanted someone to make this poll so I am making this for him/her.  To prevent people from not voting, no one will see the outcome until the end of the poll (1 day) so that people still vote and there will be no bias,  lets starts!

Perhaps Under a Blood Red Sky, Rattle and Hum, the three greatest hits packages, and the latest album should be included?  And maybe even get crazy and include Passengers?

Oh, but I want to see how many others voted for the same thing as me right away, waiting is so difficult  :(

you can set it up to see votes-so-far only AFTER a person has voted, that will accomplish the same goal

You could've added NLOTH to this one. We've all seen the cover.

too many of these.
Title: Re: U2 Album Cover Survivor Game Round 1
Post by: An Cat Dubh on February 16, 2009, 11:44:56 AM
It's ok as it is for the studio's but I think NLOTH should be included as it would be intersting to see how fans rank it in relation to other covers.

Post by: shockdocta22 on February 16, 2009, 12:03:36 PM
ok everything has been fixed, I really meant to put in Rattle and Hum but forgot.  Nloth was also added.  Do not vote in pt 2, voting was locked there

Doh  :D

I voted for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb - terrible cover. So boring for such an experienced and creative band (and the same goes for the design team).
A huge let down on its release. No inspiration. People will say October is worse. Yes its a poor cover by TODAYS's standards, but it was realeased early in the 1980's!

WAR? Who the h**l voted for WAR?  :-\ Do you know how iconic it is? I know this is based on peoples personal favorites and tastes, but come on?  ;)

Bomb= WORST cover. So disappointing.
Title: Re: U2 Album Cover Survivor Game Round 1
Post by: ABloodRedSky on February 16, 2009, 01:18:16 PM
Agree with the majority, so far...HTDAAB was TERRIBLE.

But the fact that someone voted for War surprised me...wow?! To each his own, I suppose, and all that jazz.

It was lazy, just like the music.

I have this image of the band/management/label brain trusts all sitting around anxiously awaiting release date, somebody say "let's see the cover now" and they all look around at each and start saying "I thought your department was doing the cover"  to each other.

October, which is essentially the Bomb cover rendered 80s. The Bomb cover itself isn't that bad, it's just not particularly inspiring, not unlike the album.

And someone, it seems, has voted Achtung Baby. We have some twisted individuals on this forum.

I went for htdaab over october because by now they have the know how to do better, the money to do better, the support teams to do better, etc.

It was bound to be between October and Bomb. No one wants to see boring pictures of the band just chilling. I voted October, but don't really like either one.

I hope No Line on the Horizon wins.

Yeah, thats pretty shocking Joe, especially War.

And as for October, This was early 80's simplicity, I think a lot of newer fans (quite rightly) dont like it, but I voted HTDAAB because, by 2004, the band and their designers should have known better.

this was an easy one for me to vote for, when I saw all the names listed immediately all the images came into my head except one..........I had to grab the CD because Bomb just was a bit unforgettable for me, couldn't remember what the cover was?

People keep saying that, but just because the band were once young and naive, it doesn't suddenly promote October over HTDAAB in the album art stakes, just like the fact that the band had little studio time making the album doesn't suddenly make the album better than, say, the Joshua Tree. It makes the relatively poor quality understandable, but it doesn't make it any better.

Hey, In my opinion it does, and isnt that what this fun poll is supposed to be about? Personal tastes and favorites? I didn not say one was better than the other.

Working titles for the album (well two of them anyway) were Man, and Adam - I guess thats why he did the photo.

I voted for Achtung because i think it's a weak cover. They weren't able tho choose one picture and so they used them all. It's a bit of a compremise.
They had the idea to name the record MAN or ADAM. That's why there is the picture of Adam on the cover.

I'm surprised how most of the % are on HTDAAB and October.

Personally I went for the Achtung Baby cover. I just love the art on it.
 Close to it I'd say The Joshua Tree.
