Once again , proof of how "out" democracy can be ! :evil: :shock:
How can anyone believe King Horse is a better song than Riot Act - priceless for Bruce's amazing bass fade out and "don't put your heart out on your sleeve, when you remarks are off the cuff" and the desperate way Elvis sings it - if this were the only track on the album it would still be in he top five Elvis albums ever !

How can High Fidelity and New Amsterdam beat Riot Act?

The mind boggles!!!

Yes, Riot Act is probably Elvis's most tortured epic. What a song, what a production. Incredible. But out.

I'm amazed High Fidelity is in the top 3 - though of course it is excellent, as are all the tracks on the album, so....

Wow, I thought Riot Act would be the last man standing.
It does warm my heart that Opportunity make it as far as it did. Still sad about Motel Matches though.
