You have to remember that REM started out as a party band, doing weird ass covers and it comes out in their records. Plus Peter Buck has the biggest and weirdest record collection....

If I had to do a top ten for U2 though, it would probably be
1) TUF
2) Streets
3) Acrobat
4) EPAA
5) RTSS
6) Ultraviolet
7) Bad
8) The First Time
9) COBL
10) WOWY
I once tried to rank all of U2's tracks. I actually finished it, but couldn't agree with 95% of it. My methodology was to rank each album individually, then merge Boy and October, then War into that, then UF into that, etc.

I love that EPAA makes your top ten. Doesn't even make my top 30, but it's nice to see it get some love for a change. Though Ultra Violet?

My top ten:
1. One Tree Hill
2. Bad
3. The Unforgettable Fire
4. Heartland
5. A Sort Of Homecoming
7. New Year's Day
8. Acrobat
9. Gone
10. Wild Irish Rose or Spanish Eyes, I can never decide

Golden, thanks. I'll have to get around to downloading from that Porcupine Tree link you gave me a while ago, too.

I actually found myself enjoying it. In spite or because of its weirdness, I'm not sure.

How the hell do you decide what the next location is? Do you guys have a duel to the death or something to see who gets to name the location??? That would be fun to watch.


Sometimes somebody has a destination they want to go to, or something seems really appropriate in light of what we've just been discussing on the thread (like Brest Railway Museum came up because we said we should find a town with a name like Boobies). Other times, we mine this list: User:SP-KP/ToDo/salvage2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oh My God...now I'm going to do something ridiculous like that. Count the number of "albums" rank them, asignt that ranking, then points for being my faovrite song on said album, or something


And I like your list too. And yes, I like Ultraviolet

I don't know what it is for EPAA, I think I like it so much JUST to spite everyone.

Do you still have the PT link? There were a couple of things I meant to download on that page and never did, and now I can't remember the damn link.

Cool. And, wow, that list of geographical names is amazing. I love it. And it should be your goal to make a thread using every single one of the names on that list.

I don't think I could bring myself to do it any more. I settle for a top 10-20, and a bottom 10.

And a PT ranking would be fucking impossible.

Yeah, I love this stuff. I'd laugh if we got through the whole list - and I hate to think what my post count would be!

Since we're in Westward Ho!, maybe we should go to Loveladies next?

Holy shit you did some walking! Yeah, with the extensions going on, parking is shit at the moment, but I guess I'm used finding my way around there. My Dad was in there the week before last.

Now if you were Ax, you would have taken the train, and not had a worry
