Elvis Ate America is literally the worst recording U2 have ever been associated with.

Can't believe United Colours and One Minute Warning got shafted in favour of this sack of utter crap. Easy vote though!

"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

My vote will go to either Always Forever Now or Let's Go Native. Not really a fan of either so i guess I'll wait a bit to see if Elvis needs a hand.

I haven't listened to anything from that album other than Miss Sarajevo since the two or three times I played it when I bought it.

Native it is.

Elvis is at least interesting, Native is not.

Very happy that Let's Go Native! progressed.

Elvis is gone, but where is the harm in a stray vote for Sarajevo? I want Slug and Your Blue Room to progress.

I voted Always Forever Now by instinct, never dreamed that Elvis Ate America was also an option!

Still, I quite like it so I won't ask for my vote to be changed, won't make a difference anyway.

Well this round is exactly as expected at least.

I have to say, like I think someone else also said before, Elvis at least makes me laugh. Let's go Native makes me
I'd rather

Are we supposed to vote for favorites or least-favorites? It's not really clear.
