Trust Survivor - Results

Trust Survivor - Results The winner is... New Lace Sleeves. Once again, I am surprised at the results because Clubland is one of Elvis's most beloved songs, but New Lace Sleeves is often considered to be the best on the album, so I'm not too surprised.

I'm only doing the albums from the first ten years of his career because doing all of the albums would take far too long, I am unfamiliar with the albums, and because I am doing a survivor with the winners of all of these albums.
