Honestly, no.  I'll check it out before this round ends, and maybe it will change my vote, maybe it won't.  I already know I don't like Broken Social Scene (from what I remember).

Also, as for all the "if NMH wins i'm gonna punch babies", I voted for it in this round simply because I think it's a pretty good album.  Is it holy-shit-amazing?  No.  But it's a decent album, and definitely better than Doolittle.

I am a little put off by just how many people are putting It Takes A Nation... over Paranoid.  I haven't counted, but right now it's REALLY one-sided.  Which worries me.

Man, I'm glad I waited until some time after I'd voted to actually read through the things people are saying in this thread.  I realize it's all in jest (sort of) of course, but man, I would not like to vote while being threatened that much.

i don't think any Sigur Ros album even deserved to make it to the first round.

this.

Remember, the point of this competition is to pick the best overall album, not pick discs that have a few good tracks, a few ok tracks but we love the band so omg fanboi laws require me to vote for it!!!

I feel like I kind of defy this perspective, but to be fair it's because I'd never heard of some of these bands before this contest, especially not outside of seeing their name on this forums somewhere, and even more albums I'd never heard.  I listened to a good amount of the albums, but a lot of prejudice went into bands I wasn't too familiar with but had multiple albums on here, as I would listen to one, really dislike it, and then not have a very high opinion of what their other work could be (Sigur Ros, the Pixies, Mountain Goats, etc.)

I love Paranoid but on almost any given day I'll probably wind up putting on It Takes A Nation... instead.

Mountain Goats (Fuck you SGT Peppers)
Husker Du

Highway 61
Abbey Road (I'm a bad person. I like Stage Names more than BSB)

Surfer Rosa (mwahafuckyoubowiehaha)
Pet Sounds (It's fucking Pet Sounds. Even if I had come to this album cold I would love it dearly)
London Calling (I don't actually like either of these options all that much, but it's the better of two blehs)

Damn you all for not voting for Lonesome Crowded West.

Yeah, it was similar for me, but I just don't think I ever care to listen to Paranoid anymore. Like, it's great, but I've heard it out, you know. It takes a nation is still there for me.
