On the Turning Away. Curiously, there was a time when I adored it, but now the lyrics are simply too poor to salvage its melodic strengths.

I must be in the minority then, because there is no way I vote off On The Turning Away next.

Actually I think I like Turning Away and Terminal Frost almost equally... but prefer Frost by a tad.

4. ...Turning Away
3. Terminal Frost
2. Learning To Fly
1. Sorrow

This album is really not as bad as some people here make it out to be. Despite some filler, the good songs are really beautiful and atmospheric.

Terminal Frost has to be next to go. It's a nice instrumental, but not as good as the other songs. My rankings of the songs left:

1. Sorrow
20. On The Turning Away
21. Learning To Fly
22. Terminal Frost

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I can't even recall what the guitar solo sounds like. All I know is that the first few minutes are enough to make me lapse into a vegetative state.

I love all those songs! Will make a very nice EP.

Actually, even One Slip is not thaaat bad (especially the chorus) but it's got some poor lyrics.

All of the songs left are OK. Everything already eliminated...not so much.

I used to love this album.

Now, the only song that's listenable is Sorrow.
