I fell in love with U2 because of New Year's Day and the War album, but the 4 90's albums are my favorite.

So far, the order is:

1. Automatic For The People
2. New Adventures In Hi-Fi
3. Murmur
4. Lifes Rich Pageant
-------------------
5. Document
6. Out Of Time
7. Reckoning
8. Fables Of The Reconstruction
9. Monster
10. Green
------------------
11. Up
12. Accelerate
13. Reveal
14. Around The Sun

And I predicted:

1. Automatic
2. Lifes Rich Pageant
3. Murmur
4. New Adventures
--------------------
5. Document
6. Fables
7. Reckoning
8. Out Of Time
9. Up
10. Monster
--------------------
11. Accelerate
12. Green
13. Reveal
14. Around The Sun

Pretty close, but I'm disappointed that Up is on its way to only getting one song in the finals. That's bullshit.

I'd vote in this but I've only heard four REM albums and I don't really like Monster and Accelerate much at all, very average

Green is good though and Automatic is awesome and I've heard half of Murmur and that sounds just as good

Yeah, I'm feeling sad that I voted for OOT instead of it now. I should've known that OOT would get enough love to be in the middle no matter what.

First 4 albums, along with New Adventures in Hi-Fi, are my favorites. R.E.M. from the IRS years kicks the post-Document one's shiny ass.

I know I sound like a broken record, but if Document is closer in votes to the top tier than it is to the middle, it really should be bumped up. It just doesn't belong with those middle albums.

And I think Out Of Time should be top tier.

We can't always get what we want, lazarus.

Damn, you beat me, I was going to say exactly that about Monster and use the same Mick Jagger phrase.

Well the decision to make it 4-6-4 is arbitrary, isn't it? Let the results dictate the spacing breakdown, not the other way around.

You have missed the point. He's talking statistically, not just because he likes Document. Even though it is fifth, it's a clear fifth, and voting indicates that it's notably higher in rating than the albums coming after it in the voting.

Okay I see your point. But it's no secret that laz likes Document... a lot.

I'm giving it my first listen now and I can't argue with him.

That's true. But I really am trying to be objective. It's widely considered one of the 80's best albums, and deserves to have more songs pulled from it than "The One I Love" and "It's the End of the World..."

But thanks for the support, PFan.

The race has certainly tightened up between #5 and #6, but it's seven votes, whereas the difference between #4 and #5 is only four. You want to talk percentages, almost half the people who voted selected #5 Document, whereas less than a third selected #6 Out of Time.
