So, I thought I would look at both albums and rate each track 1 to 10, 10 being the best, and rating them in an way that would take it into consideration U2's entire body of work, not just songs on that album.

This is what I came up with.

1. "Discothèque" - 6
2. "Do You Feel Loved" - 8
3. "Mofo" - 9
4. "If God Will Send His Angels" - 5
5. "Staring at the Sun" - 7
6. "Last Night on Earth" - 7
7. "Gone" - 9
8. "Miami" - 7
9. "The Playboy Mansion" - 5
10. "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" - 8
11. "Please" - 9
12. "Wake Up Dead Man" - 9

Total of 89 / 12 songs = 7.42 average


SOI

1. "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" - 7
2. "Every Breaking Wave" - 10
3. "California (There Is No End to Love)" - 8
4. "Song for Someone" - 5
5. "Iris (Hold Me Close)" - 7
6. "Volcano" - 8
7. "Raised by Wolves" - 9
8. "Cedarwood Road" - 7
9. "Sleep Like a Baby Tonight" - 9
10. "This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now" - 6
11. "The Troubles" - 10

Total = 86 / 11 = 7.82

Now I see why I love both these albums equally.

Give it a go if you'd like.
Sorry, but there is absolutely nothing on this new album that compares to the intensity of "Please", "Gone" or even "Wake Up Dead Man" - "The Troubles" may come close but with that horrible quick fade out I don't think so!!!

Then again, different strokes for different folks.

I would agree with your statement....you gave Passengers an 8.5. Heck, you gave Elvis ate America a 7.
