I haven't heard SOE yet but I HIGHLY doubt it will be bumping any of my top three, which are TJT, TUF, and AB. Even top five would be a stretch, though it is possible. October and Pop round out that list.

I guess I'll find out on Friday.

It's still way to early for me to rank it against the other albums.   I generally need a little bit of time with it and it takes a while for the 'newness' sheen to wear off. When SOI came out I thought it was awesome - perhaps top 5 - but in the time since it's settled quite comfortably to about 7th, 8th or 9th.

I really like SOE right now but even on its best day it's not breaking into my top 3 (TUF, TJT, AB).

Why are Zooropa and Passengers the same option?

TUF and October should not be in anybody's top 5.
TUF is kind of middle of the road.
October is probably a bottom 3 pick.

Because Passengers was released close to Zooropa and I don't really consider it that standalone.

Not voting because Zooropa and Passengers are not the same album.

Is this seriously going to be a major protest?

And I didn't say they were the same, I just had one option for both.

Huh?  They were released nearly two years apart from each other, 7/5/93 and 11/6/95.  Even if hey were released one day after the other, they are still two distinct pieces of music.

The way I see it is that much of Passengers isn't great, so I remove Passengers and move Miss Sarajevo, Your Blue Room, Slug, Always Forever Now, and HMTMKMKM to Zooropa.

October not in my top 5 for content.
October in my top five for context with which it was heard the first time I heard it.
