It put R&H second after AB for me, which surprised me,

but If you think about, it God Part 2 / AIWIY , bloody good songs

(would it have brought the average down if it had included ALL the tracks??)

Are you guys interested in an update to the program including the new album? It is possible that I remember how I coded this back when

Would be fun to see how the new album ranks against the others.

One thing I would like is if someone with Windows 7, would be so kind to download and install the program to see if it works there. I assume it works in Vista since I have heard nothing to the contrary. I myself use XP and it works fine there as well.

U2rate is available at U2rate - Main Page

Wow, what a really great tool. That's nice of somebody to actually sit down and put the time into making something like this. Great little nifty piece of software.



When I look at my ratings it really surprises me because I've always had high regards for Zooropa, I suppose there isn't enough songs to put it higher - but that being said, why is rattle and hum so high? lol hmm (that really does surprise me). But as you can see a lot of them are pretty close.

About Rattle and Hum. It was hard to know what to do with it in regards to rating and which songs to include. Since it is a major album it had to be included. It is a mess though, because of the live tracks from earlier albums. I decided to go for the original studio recordings, so that it can be "properly" rated against other original U2 albums.

I think it is a better solution than rating all the tracks.

Thanks for the nice comment

I have almost finished putting in the option to rate the new album.
Some small tweaks and other editing will be done as well.
I will probably launch it around the release of the new album.
Will be exciting to see how it does against the other albums and how it compares over time.

You are a generous "grader". Most of my albums fall in the 6 score category, with my highest ranked receiving a lower score than your lowest ranked! Maybe I'm just a picky b*stard.

I downloaded it, but nothing happened. Isn't there supposed to be something to click on or something? What do I do now?

Hi.

It is a setup file that is executable. All you need to do is to find where you downloaded it, and run it. Btw it doesn't work on mac systems.

Its for the best-- we'd be bored of them (some already are) if they made any more.

Implementation of NLOTH into U2rate is now fully functional. I am considering adding some small extra features but can't think of any that really adds to the experience.

I'll put it out after som bug testing. After all.. boots are ready to be rated already
