Because this is the quick way to do it, as there isn't enough interest for the long drawn-out version.

We've done it this way for U2 before, and we'll do it again soon too. So you can stop bitching.

There isn't enough time or interest to do a favorite song poll in any other way than voting for the least favorite song?

But you've enough time to do it again?

Strange.

how would you propose any survivor series be done? i'm not being bitchy, i'm legitimately curious. would you go the other way around (from best to worst)?

one big poll couldn't be done and i think even if it could, it'd turn a lot of people off by having 300 options listed.

but i know for me, if i have any spare time and try to do individual rankings for a band (just for my own sake i mean), i usually go from best to worst.

The least favorite song way takes longer than this one, for the most part. As you may have noticed, we pretty much only get about 11-13 voters per round. Instead of dragging out these album rounds, I opted to do it this way. Now, when we get to the Tier 1, 2 and 3 survivors, I will do least favorite songs. There's likely to be more participation when the songs are all those people know.



Re-listened to this after I voted, and I'm sticking to my guns that the decision was pretty easy, but I do LOVE Us Vs. Them, Lost and Before Three among a few other songs. I forget that I actually like this album most of the time.

This album is terrible, definitely my least favorite Cure release. Just a lot of boring songs that go nowhere. The only positive it has over Wild Mood Swings is that it (my version at least) is shorter. And the album cover is hilarious.

Went with Before Three and alt.end.

While Travis is listening to 60 seconds of every track and declaring this to The Cure's worst album, I'm also realizing that I love "(I Don't Know What's Going) On" and "Taking Of" (which sounds a lot like a throw-back to the 80s sound )

I'd just flip it, as you suggest. The world is cynical enough. Picking a favorite song shouldn't be. Especially a U2 song on a U2 forum.
