Album Nomination Game -- ROUND ONE
« on: 23 Mar 2009, 15:44 »

Ok folks, here we go. I had a hell of a fun time putting this together. Here's the bracket. Explanations about everything below.



Fixed the brackets. Here's a link to the full bracket in case you want it. Click the image, then click "view Raw".

First off, a few things of note:
  • I’ll elaborate on my ranking system I touched on in the nomination thread. First I ranked them by number of overall nominations. The top five were: NMH – Aeroplane (8 votes); Black Sabbath – Paranoid (7), Explosions in the Sky – The Earth is Not a Cold, Dead Place; Low – Things we Lost in the Fire; and Owls – Owls, each with 6 votes. I then counted the number of other nominations for that band. In EitS’s case, they had 2 other nominations, so they were ranked #3. Neither Low nor Owls had any other albums nominated, so I went alphabetically. I did that for the rest of the 59 albums.
  • A few albums and bands have been abbreviated. This is so that they can all fit in the cell. If you have questions about the album or band, please PM me.
  • TWO changes have been made to the rankings:

                     o Fugazi – The Argument had two nominations, but it is NOT included in the bracket. We had 25 albums with two nominations and at least one other album nominated, but we only needed 24. Fugazi already appears higher on the list, so I took the liberty of excluding it. That way another band’s album can appear on the list.
                     o The 6 seeds were as follows (in order): Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home; Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited; Sigur Rós – Ágætis Byrjun; John Coltrane – Blue Train. The 11 seeds were (in order): Sigur Rós – ( ); Sigur Rós – Takk…; Agalloch – The Mantle; John Coltrane – Giant Steps. Because I am following the normal 1 vs. 16, 2 vs. 15, 3 vs. 14 … 8 vs. 9 match-ups in a clockwise fashion, we would have ended up with two Dylan vs. Sigur Rós (blue & yellow) and one Coltrane vs. Coltrane (green) matchups. Thus, I switched Hwy 61 with Blue Train.
  • If you want further explanation, PM me. I’m happy to describe my process. I have spreadsheets, etc. of everything.
  • If you don’t like any of the process I’ve gone through, tough shit.


Now, the exciting part: the voting process! Here’s how I want you to vote:

You’ll notice there are four colours: Blue, Yellow, Green and Orange. You need to pick the winners of each match up in each colour. So for your reply, I want it like this (or something similar):

BLUE
NMH – Aeroplane
Pixies – Doolittle
Mt. Goats –
Beatles
Dylan
Agalloch
Slint
Jawbreaker

YELLOW
Same as above

GREEN
Ditto

ORANGE
Ibid

For round one, you will pick a total of THIRTY-TWO (32) albums, eight from each colour. So, in my above example, I think that NMH’s Aeroplane is a better disc than Pavement’s Wowee Zowee!; Pixies’ Doolittle is better than Mclusky; Mt. Goats better than Opeth; etc. Make sense? I assume you’ve all done these kind of brackets before. If not, PM me and I can explain further.

After one week (or shorter, depending on how fast you all vote), I’ll tally all the votes. At that time, I’ll fill in the winners on the bracket, repost it, and we’ll do round two. Et cetera & et cetera. Got it? Good.

Have fun!

What's the time frame on the voting process? I haven't listened to some of these bands and I'd rather download them before deciding.

And is everyone voting on these albums or just the people who initially voted these albums in?

I think that is a pretty safe assumption.

Also,

After one week (or shorter, depending on how fast you all vote), I’ll tally all the votes.

That is probably how long we have.

Hmm... Bowie’s Low made the bracket with 2 votes, but All the Pretty Little Horses, 20 Jazz Funk Greats and Loveless aren't in with 3? :(  Not that I expected the first two would make it past the first round, but I'd've thought MBV would've been a contender.

First off, All The Pretty Horses by Current 93 had three nominations (myself, Khar, and rynne).  Why wasn't it counted for this?  It beats just about every other album on here.  Same goes for Throbbing Gristle's Twenty Jazz Funk Greats.

Owls - Owls

YELLOW

Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
Bedhead - Transaction De Novo
Fugazi - Red Medicine
John Coltrane - Blue Trane
Refused I guess?  How about we just let All the Pretty Horses win this match up instead?
Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run
Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue

GREEN

The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Neil Young - On The Beach

Radiohead - Kid A
Sigur Ros - ()
Husker Du - Zen Arcade
Slint -Spiderland

Belle and Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
The Unicorns - Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?
Okkervil River - Black Sheep Boy
MONO - You Are There

ORANGE
Ted Leo/RX - Tyranny of Distance
Broken Social Scene - You Forgot it in People
GY!BE - Lift Your Skinny Fists...
Pixies - Surfer Rosa
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
The Clash - London Calling
Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West

One of the best albums on here, to me (although most of them are great), is You Are There. Seems mean to pit it against Abbey Road. MONO doesn't stand a chance :-(
These were mostly easy decisions for me though. Choosing between Wilco and Mogwai was tough, as was choosing between Okkervil River and the Wrens but for the most part this round was an easy one.

Quote from: rynne
Hmm... Bowie’s Low made the bracket with 2 votes, but All the Pretty Little Horses, 20 Jazz Funk Greats and Loveless aren't in with 3? Sad  Not that I expected the first two would make it past the first round, but I'd've thought MBV would've been a contender.
First off, All The Pretty Horses by Current 93 had three nominations (myself, Khar, and rynne).  Why wasn't it counted for this?  It beats just about every other album on here.  Same goes for Throbbing Gristle's Twenty Jazz Funk Greats.

Shit, really? I must have missed that. Damnit, I'll check my spreadsheets when I'm back in the office tomorrow. I had formulas set up to tell me which albums were nominated multiple times, which ones had additional albums, etc. I obviously messed up on those three. Maybe the three were spelled differently (20 vs twenty, etc.) Sorry about that!

I guess, though, there's nothing I can do about it. It would complicate matters quite a bit, at this point. I'd have to re-rank everything with 3 and 2 votes, figure out which two-vote-plus-one albums would be excluded and redo the brackets. Sorry guys. I'm only one dude and missing three albums isn't too bad considering there were over 550 nominations.

As someone quoted above, you have one week to vote - 20:00GMT Monday 20 March 2009 is the cutoff. Anyone can vote, even if you didn't nominate anything in the initial thread. If people want to take the initiative and post some stuff in the med!afire thread, that'd be neat, but not necessary.

Again, sorry for missing those three. Hope you have fun nonetheless!

--Edit 1--
Regarding a tie - I've no idea. Hope it doesn't happen? My brain is shot tonight; I'll give it a thought during the week. And if you're upset about anything, read the last bullet point before I tell you how to vote.

Daydream Nation vs Paranoid was the real big decision ticket for me in this but I made my choice and I stand by it.

Kind of wish I'd taken more interest in the nomination thread though because there are a lot of choices where I don't even care about either album being nominated and also Revolver is not on here.

Oh well
