The Joshua Tree - 4
Achtung Baby - 1

Total of 165 votes

Interestingly, this rounds albums finished in exactly the same order as the last round (minus the last rounds "winner"). Thats a first.


Round Ten

is now open. Please vote by clicking in the circle next to the album you like the LEAST on the electronic poll above. Thank you.

This is a THREE day timed electronic poll (because of the weekend)


Instructions:

Voting

Each round please vote off the album you like the least. The album with the most amount of votes is the the least popular for this round. Voting is anonymous. Its not compulsory to state your preference in the thread.

Next round all the albums are listed again, minus the album that receives the most amount of votes this round. And again please vote for your least favourite album from the selection.

And on we go for many rounds until theres only two albums left. In the last round you vote for your favourite out of the two. The last album standing is the most popular (or the least unpopular depending on how you look at it).

Tie Breaker
In the event of a tie, a 24 hour poll will be run. This poll will consist solely of the tied albums.

In the event of a tied tie breaker, votes from all previous rounds will be tallied to determine a grand total of votes for the tied abums.

In the event of a grand total of votes resulting in a draw, all of the tied albums will be eliminated from the competition.

Oh yay, someone else other than me voted. I can see this is going to be one of those rounds where everyone waits to see which way the votes are going before voting.

PS This is a long poll this one. Three Days. OMG! lol. (because of the weekend)

That was me.

HTDAAB.

That you people have allowed it to remain here when it's only been out for two months is atrocious.

UF - again... I only realy like Wire and UF from this album.... and I think HTDAAB deserve to be U2's "3rd masterpiece", not only because it's so good, but also as a nice slap in the ATYCLB's face

Swap Achtung Baby for Boy and you have my top four. Nice.

As all of you know by now, The Unforgettable Fire is the best album ever made. DO NOT VOTE FOR IT.

beli, after those polls, could you make a "Survivor": "Wich album's cover/artwork/booklet you like the LEAST? I think this might be interesting for some people (like me) that like photography/ photo editing...etc
I think it would be totaly diferent list in the end than this one (assuming people will forget about music for a second).
What would you say?

lol. The next survivor will be Axvers singles survivor. After that I don't see why we couldn't run an album cover one as well. Sounds good to me.
