Bastards, but a tie is better (just) than IALW making it further.
Get out of my brain.

I still can't believe anybody would prefer IALW over WILATW. Maybe Khan can explain, as I know she hates WILATW but isn't an ATYCLB fan at all so probably hates IALW too. What makes IALW more tolerable than a song with good lyrics and the only guitar solo on the album?

Of course. I nearly missed that.

Alters, probably. When I last checked, it was 48 WILATW, 45 IALW.

The first round of HTDAAB sucks. You people and your disdain for One Step Closer ...

I actually like ATYCLB, and only discovered WILATW relatively recently. But it shits over IALW, so much so that i took IALW out of my own ATYCLB tracklisting.

Of course alters can vote. They're just another account. I've voted with notAxver before - not on Survivor; on the Prog Island tournament, I submitted a notAxver playlist so that we had an even amount of contestants, and in notAxver's rounds, I voted with that account rather than with this one.

I nearly voted Yahweh, but ABOY got my vote in the end. In an ideal world, I'd want them to both go in a tie.

I hate ATYCLB. It's my least favourite U2 album and I don't think any song is a classic - well, unless your edition has TGBHF, which would factor in my top fifty U2 songs. Not sure if WILATW might just creep in to the top fifty or not. Everything else can forget it.

Funny too, because after the Best Of 1980-1990, ATYCLB was my first U2 album.

I don't love it nor hate it. It's a middle ground album for me. Most of the stuff on there isn't memorable or great compared to the rest of U2s past, but i just like a bit of it for some reason.

And TGBHF is a great album closer

Actually, maybe we should go to the Liechtensteinian municipality of Planken sometime. Check out its weirdo boundaries in the map at right: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planken

I don't think it has ever factored highly for me. I did love Walk On when I was just becoming a serious U2 fan, but as much as I like its sincerity, the cliche lyrics get too much after a while. And I've never actually rated Kite that highly, mainly due to its awful processed strings intro. I wish the studio version had been like the astonishing live version on Vertigo.

I think the middle ground album for me is probably War. It has some classic songs, an over-rated one (SBS), some middling stuff, and some bullshit.

Not even close. Think I've got my closing sequence of five or six songs worked out at least. The start's causing me huge trouble.
