The Cure Survivor - Pornography

Well, that was by far the most riveting competition we've seen. Every song received a vote, and it even looked like we could have had a five-way tie at one point.

But, in the end, three songs reigned supreme and they will be joining the tier 2 survivor, which currently stands as:

Primary - 9 votes
All Cats are Grey - 8 Votes
The Funeral Party - 8 votes
*Joining*
Play for Today
A Forest
M

We now move on to the Pornography survivor. Due to the weekend, I'll leave this poll open for 72 hours.

Pornography is a Tier 1 album and will be having four songs go through so please VOTE FOR YOUR 4 FAVORITES!

I'm sure some of you are going to have a lot of fun with this thread and work internet-blockers.

The only thing I know for sure is that I'm NOT voting for the title track and that I am voting for A Strange Day.

A Strange Day and Cold are two of my top ten Cure songs. They're easy votes. One Hundred Years isn't far behind and slots in at third.

Not sure about fourth though - possibly The Hanging Garden but I'll give the album another spin before deciding. Rest of the album really trails well behind Cold, A Strange Day, and One Hundred Years for me.

I've never been able to warm to this album, but I still like about half the tracks, pretty much all in the first half:

One Hundred Years
A Short Term Effect
The Hanging Garden (rocks pretty fucking hard)
A Strange Day (it's really that Joy Division style guitar that gets me)

Cold is also worthy and I wouldn't really mind if it went through. The title track is shit. Everything else is just that same plodding beat with Robert moaning about cutting himself. Better than Faith? Please.

A masterpiece. I recommend everyone to listen to the Trilogy live version. The title track is more flashed out. Great, ominous melody.

Siamese Twins, The Figurehead and The Hanging Garden.

But the fact that I haven't had the chance to pick One Hundred Years and A Strange Day says a lot.

I'm only at work for a few hours today, but I'll find the time to fit a listen in. I'm having a very hard time selecting four tracks at the moment.

Really hard to pick just four. And I accidentally voted for just three. D'oh.

No problem, I realize the fluctuations can be confusing.

Cheers! It'll come down to a coin flip between Hanging Garden/Siamese Twins, I'll let you know.
