Wooo - I agree that Pretty Words should be an early exit - I mean, Elvis's lesser songs are still packed with great stuff - lyrically and with what the Attractions are doing, there's lots to enjoy, but the melody isn't his usual captivating, lapel-grabbing best. Lover's Walk, though, that's a real humdinger. Pete Thomas in star position. Still, a poll's a poll so, we shall see what transpires...

I didnt vote for either of those so at least i can vote for my least favourite again. Trust is such a hard album to say you have a least favourite its a great great album. I will find it very hard to pick a favourite.

Hiding the poll whilst voting is taking place is a great idea too.

To all of you who voted out "Pretty Words" . . . you don't know what's what! You don't know what you got!

: 0 )

Seriously, I love EC's singing on "Pretty Words" . . . one of his best vocal performances on the album. Sorry to see it go so soon!
