Best Album Survivor v2

Please vote for your FIVE MOST FAVOURITE ALBUMS.

Welcome to Album Survivor! Earlier in the week I promised to start this, so here we go. In 2009, when we finished the normal version of Survivor, we ran a different format - and interestingly it turned up some different results. Now that digitize has finished running a very successful version of the normal version of Survivor, I thought I'd repeat Survivor v2 and see how different the results are this time.

This round will last for 48 hours and will be followed by v2 of Best Song Survivor. This round determines the seeding for that tournament.

Best Song Survivor v2 will be a much quicker tournament than the previous one, with a single round for each album where you vote for your favourite songs in a multiple choice poll. It's much like the miscellaneous rounds in the normal version of Survivor. In this version, all non-album tracks from a given era will be integrated with their respective albums. The top five albums in Album Survivor will get seven finalists, the middle four will get six; the bottom four will get five. If you are having trouble deciding which album will be fifth and which will miss out on receiving your vote, you may wish to choose on the basis of how good an album's b-sides are, since they will feature in that album's poll this time around.

Each decade will have its own semi-final, and the eighties will have quarter finals to qualify for its semi. Progression from quarter and semi-finals will be determined by the cumulative seeding of an era's albums. The grand final will feature thirty options, the maximum possible with polls on this forum, to give a ranking of Interference's top thirty U2 songs.

There will be NO VOTE CHANGING in this tournament.

Have fun!

1. The Unforgettable Fire
2. Boy
3. The Joshua Tree
4. Passengers
5. October

And the rest:

6. Pop
7. War
8. Achtung Baby
9. Zooropa
10. No Line on the Horizon
11. Rattle and Hum
12. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
13. All That You Can't Leave Behind

Honestly though, only 1-5 and 12-13 are set in stone at the moment; that run from 6th to 11th is variable these days. I tend to listen just to select tracks from those albums rather than to them as a whole.

All That You Can't Leave Behind
How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb


This list always seems to change at different times for me. I'd wager my list looked different the last time Axver ran this Survivor. I wasn't even positive which 5 I'd check before I ran down the list. But most of them arose quite quickly. My final spot wavered between TUF, Zooropa, and ATYCLB. Tonight ATYCLB won out.

No Line On The Horizon

The list goes on, though I often switch Zooropa and The Unforgettable Fire. 1-2, 5-7 are locks. Everything else changes.

My top five is so easy it's not funny. I have such a clear-cut top 5 from them, my favorite band, and it's a top 5 that I could recite in my sleep, fucked up on Quaaludes and dreams of Emma Watson:

1. Achtung Baby
2. Joshua Tree
3. Pop
4. Unforgettable Fire
5. Zooropa

Fuck off.

1) And you know it's time to go...
2) I want to run, I want to hide...
3) I'm ready, I'm ready for the laughing gas...
4) The heart is a bloom, shoots up from the stony ground...
5) When you get to the bottom you go back to the top of the slide...

I know, it should be ranked higher, but the ones above it are just that good. So I typically have it at #5, alternating with NLOTH.

(Kidding...I'm actually probably one of the few people here who like that record more than Boy or War...I see it as kind of spiritual sibling to TUF and NLOTH).
