J. Swallow is good early U2 (when was it recorded btw?) - and jokes aside, obviously One Tree Hill is miles above Ultraviolet, as are several songs on AB itself. But Ultraviolet does not deserve the hate you cast upon it.

The next round will end with a mercy rule within a few hours. For Corri's sleep schedule's sake, we could all agree to vote as soon as it opens, and it could end in minutes.

lets face it, it's a mediocre to decent song, leaning more towards the decent side when played live....but c'mon...the studio version especially just lacks the energy and melody that the great U2 songs have...i cannot believe it has made it this far...I can't find one redeeming quality in this song, honestly....it's just dull, simply put...nothing jumps out at me when i listen to it, and wanderer should've destroyed this song

that aside, the next 2 rounds have to be the most pointless, wasteful 96 hours of interference history

let's see here

zooropa- 2
lemon- 17
dirty song- 22

We have to do something to make the place more bearable before it gets really unbearable when the next album comes out

During the U23D takes over era, this poll was often the only other thread on the front page.

I think J. Swallow's just from the October sessions. It's probably my least favourite song from the era; it's too incomplete and I wish they'd had time to do something more substantial with it.

Admittedly, Ultra Violet is better than J. Swallow in composition and performance ability and all that. But at the end of the day, if I have to hear one word repeated ad nauseum in a song, I'll take 'walk' over 'baby'.

I was abroad with little internet acces for much of it, but I saw the aftermath. It wasn't pretty.

HA on the lyrics. Obviously it's not finished, but I think it had great potential, and if you ignore Bono there's some really great stuff coming from the rest of the band, especially Larry. But this is like criticisms of Mercy - sure there are some issues with the lyrics, mixing, whether it crecendos or not - but it is incomplete, and has brilliant potential (at least on my side of the Mercy fence). I agree that it would have been nice if they'd decided to do something more substantial with it.... much like all of Pop.

Oh, well, if J. Swallow is October's Mercy, then I can't like it at all any more then.

The lovers vs haters debate will surely be intense, longwinded, and thoroughly pointless.
