Unforgettable fire, it's the least cohesive.

We actually have already had an album cover survivor. That was one that followed DaveC's original survivor, along with video [official release] and music video survivors.

You did not just say that! It's so inextricably linked and cohesive; the atmosphere flows through each track. The Unforgettable Fire --> Promenade --> 4th Of July --> Bad could be a single song by itself.

It's the only U2 album where each song perfectly flows together and the album works as a single cohesive unit. Now don't even get me started on the total lack of flow of Achtung Baby. If you want to vote for an album that isn't cohesive, vote for AB. EBTTRT --> One --> UTEOTW - WTF?

I'd say the exact opposite. Would you mind explaining why you think that? I have no intention of telling you you're wrong, cause you can't be on opinion, so dont panic lol, I'm just very curious as to what makes you think so differently.



And this isn't an invitation for everyone to start on a flame war on the benefits of UF. Though I've never seen such polarisation until beli began these polls

Better go vote now

I can probably tell you the results now ...

October will lose first. Then HTDAAB. Then whatever order in the original.

Oh, and LONG LIVE THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE!! HOORAH!

This is my friendly reminder to everyone: DO NOT VOTE FOR THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE! Thanks!

(Can you tell I love The Unforgettable Fire?)

Unforgettable Fire...I think the other three albums all have a ton of songs that I love, whereas UF is a bit patchy to me in places, despite some genius atmosphere.

No, the US Boy cover will go first.

I can't believe Pop is gone.

I can't even vote right now. Forget the ticket fiasco, this is absolutely horrible.

That you people have allowed it to remain here when it's only been out for two months is atrocious.
Replacing the word 'atrocious' with 'ridiculous' and you have my post.

I have allways found it difficult to rate UF, but I think I have figured it out:

If you compare UF with JT song by song, JT wins but I think UF is the better album, because of its flow like Axver said.
