I'm currently hearin: City of Blinding Lights(Radio Edit)- U2

I don't think it'll be any surprise what albums are in first and second place. ;) Must say that How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb ranked much better than I expected it to, consider it's such a new release. Pop narrowly missed the top five (but still did freaking fantastic!!!). :D


1. Achtung Baby (41 votes)
2. The Joshua Tree (39 votes)
3. How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (29 votes)
4. War (23 votes)
4. All That You Can't Leave Behind (23 votes)
6. Pop (21 votes)
7. Boy (16 votes)
8. The Unforgettable Fire (14 votes)
9. Zooropa (9 votes)
10. Rattle & Hum (8 votes)
11. Under a Blood Red Sky (3 votes)
11. Best of 1980-1990 (3 votes)

#1 and #2 are sooo close. 4 of my 5 are in the top 5, so that's cool. :-)

The top five IS my top five... just... rearranged. I knew I should've started a pool! Anyhoo, not to get all mathematic on ya (damn my two years of Calculus), but maybe on our next poll someone could reanalyze the numbers as to which is the favorite. Because AB got 41 votes, but that doesn't make it the necessary favorite. What if it got 41 fifth place votes? JT got 39 votes, but what if they were all first and second place votes? Anyone catching my drift?
Anyhoo, that certainly wasn't meant to diminish your efforts there, o grand Poll Taker. I like this stuff! I commend you for counting up our numbers, 'cause I most definitely don't want to. O:-)

I honestly thought about doing it that way, but then it's too difficult for the fans to decide which order to put the albums in. I know myself that my favorite album is Pop, but then the waters get muddied after that as to what is my second favorite, third favorite etc. Was easier in the end to simply count the number of votes and leave it at that. :)

True that. It can get rather ambiguous.

*twiddles thumbs and awaits the next poll*

;) I'm happy to see you've been enjoying the polls. There's likely going to be one more... maybe two. The second might cause riots though. ;)

No. I've never really had the use for a paid account. Besides, it would take more time to build the poll. It took me a couple minutes to get the original albums list from u2wanderer. I know it means users have to type out their answers... but *shrugs* no other way around it. :)

I'd like to see this poll in a few years and see where Atomic Bomb comes in. I can comfortably say that this is my favorite album, it has so many different moods and pieces that reflect from all other albums.
