what about an ultimate singles survivor.

you have a survivor for each album, until you get one single left from each album, then you vote for the favourite.

that would keep us going for like... until the new u2 album when we can start it all going again

Right. 4th Of July, by itself, is barely even a song. But when taken in context of Promenade --> 4th Of July --> Bad, it's perfect. It's a necessary linking element and the album would be weaker without it.

UF is not meant to be taken as a collection of individual songs. UF is an experience, like the Hiroshima photographical display that gave it the title.

That would be "Axver's singles survivor" that beli mentioned earlier in this thread.

Should prove to be fun!

HTDAAB. I think that a year from now my answer will be different after I've had a chance to hear the new songs live and after I've fully absorbed HTDAAB and all of it's intricacies. Right now it's still like a new acquaintance whereas UF is an old friend.

So you don't like Bad or Pride? Or maybe you just don't like the album versions after hearing them live? Just wondering because I don't know of many U2 fans who don't like Bad.

By cohesive I mean there's MLK, there's 4 of July, there's Promenade, there's EP and America - I don't feel these are as tight song-wise as Pride, Wire, UF, A sort of homecoming, Bad and Indian summer sky.
I don't see them as proper songs, but more like quick studio spontaneous moments of impressions.

I do like UF, I just wish it had more songs on it. Makes it uneven for me.

I'm not meaning to say your opinion's wrong or anything, but as I said before, UF isn't about a collection of songs, it's about an atmospheric experience that happens to include spontaneous inspired moments that come together to create a whole. It's not about individual parts, it's about the total.

I just hope no-one's voting because "4th Of July isn't a song!"

I think I will end up doing that. This round is going to be awful. UF and HTDAAB are my two favourite albums and I really don't want to pick one over the other.

I'd much rather vote for Achtung Baby, but that won't help UF.

Uf has some great songs on it, but the other three are all great albums.

UF.

As much as i admire it for its creativity and endevour, i only actually like about 6 or 7 songs on it, whereas on the 'bomb' i like all of them with the one exception of Yahweh, which im not a big fan of at all.

just don't think the UF has enough good songs on it to justify a place in the top three.

I do like live version of "Bad" better than album version, yes... but also as a 'song' it's nothing special for me, it doesn't mean that I don't like it, just that U2 made much better songs than 'Bad' IMO.
"Pride", here I actualy like album version more than live vesion... but again it's nothing special for me.
Like I said, this doesn't mean that I don't like them, I'm a proud U2 fan and I like everything U2 made (except ATYCLB's worse half) so far.
"UF" has only 2 songs that are realy, realy good for me (read like: masterpiece songs)... Wire and UF.
