Nice.

Looking at the list again, there is (relatively) a LOT of love for NLOTH - songs nit ranked highly but a lot made the top 100 list.

Also, 3 SOE tracks made it in as well, meaning what seems to be regarded as a weak album still generated a few gems according to us.

No Line has been voted many times as their best effort post-Pop. (In this forum)

Looks like Vertigo and COBL are the only inclusions from HTDAAB? I'm surprised Vertigo made it at all. Also surprised that Sleep Like A Baby Tonight didn't make the cut because I thought people really liked that one (I've never really been a fan of it).
A heart of stone, a fear of fire and water who am I?

SOI is, without question, their wurst record.

I knew NLOTH was regarded as the tallest midget around here, I was just surprised how many songs made it in. I think about half the album?

I wonder if I voted for SLABT or if I forgot about it. It ranks highly for me.

it's tough for me because while SOE has a few higher peaks, it also has some of their worst shit of their career.  Really hard to get past AS, Get Out or YTBTAM.   

Is anything on SOI really as bad as those 3?  Debatable I suppose, like everything else...

Youíre pissed at it because of the Apple thing and the cover. Thatís irrelevant.

Most of the songs are good. It sits in the middle tier of the catalog.

I was surprised by Zooropa and A Sort Of Home making the Top 10 and that Please made the Top 20. I'll see if I can get this list over to Bono ;)
