Okay here's the test:

I'll listen to each trilogy with a different pair of shorts on. Whichever pair is drier after listening is the trilogy that loses.

I can tell you right now, I lose all control of my bowels and bladder while listening to UV/Acrobat/LIB

It's really not a good idea after all. I don't want to ruin a pair of shorts my listening to it again. I normally listen to it in bed with rubber sheets just to be safe.

UV-A-LIB wins!

Obviously the 2nd one is better, because they're part of a story and meant to fit together in the scheme of the album. Whoever it was who said they don't go together, perhaps hasn't quite understood the album.

How anyone can vote for #2 is beyond me.

It isn't even a fucking trinity people, let alone a holy one!

What constitutes a trinity - not neccessarily a holy one, mind you - just a trinity?

Songs that sound like they belong together and flow (i.e. like how the real Trinity is three separate parts that make one).

Ultra Violet --> Acrobat not only does not flow, but is one of the worst song pairings on any U2 album. Absolutely atrocious.

It makes sense to me. I agree with you there. It's why I voted number one.

It was tough at first, only because UV and Acrobat are two of my favourite songs off AB...

And for the record, UTEOTW is the other one.

As for some other trinites -

Running To Stand Still
Red Hill Mining Town
In God's Country

Peace on Earth
When I Look At The World
New York

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Bad
Where The Streets Have No Name

AND SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST -


Love and Peace or Else
City of Blinding Lights
All Because of You

Think about it.............three songs that THE BAND put on their BEST OF versus three songs that they DIDN'T............now, tell me which one of those trilogies was declared holy by the gods themselves? You are all nonbelievers if you vote for #2
