Disappointed by the lack of These Estates records.

Oh wait, that band is really lazy and should go and record a damn album.

disappointed by the lack of any kinks or stones records yall

Yeah, that kinda bothered me too, but I don't really have any excuses since I knowingly used a couple of noms on things I didn't think had chance in hell considering this forum. Plus, both bands are alike in the sense that they always seem to have a couple songs per album that I don't much care for. But in terms of individual song picks, I'd put the Kinks and the Stones up against damn near anyone.

A couple? That was my entire nomination process! Actually my nominations were more "protest nominations" than ones that I really expected to get any votes.

Most of my nominations were ones I knew weren't going anywhere (for example, four people had done paranoid, and I was the only vote for Masters of Reality), but I picked a few that I had seen other people nominate. I need to listen to a lot of the albums still, but I doubt any of the bands I really like are getting past the first round. Because you guys (mostly) fail at music taste.

Yeah I basically just voted for Pavement in the hopes that NMH wouldn't make it past the first round. I care for neither band.

The irrational My Bloody Valentine hate was fun, too.

My Bloody Valentine? Fuck My Bloody Valentine

for example, four people had done paranoid, and I was the only vote for Masters of Reality

NMH won't win. I mean, it'll win this bracket and maybe even the next but I don't see it going all the way, especially when The Beatles and Bob Dylan are running against it. More people like the two latter and enough people will vote for something else on principal. Of course, then you could say "C'mon guys, don't vote The Beatles/Bob Dylan for president like every other website and magazine and music TV show and book on music ever."

On an unrelated note, anyone else a little surprised no Bonnie 'Prince' Billy made it onto the brackets? I thought everybody had a boner for Will Oldham.

I don't know, I'd heard a little NMH before this contest, but I went and listened to Aeroplane before casting my vote (or a decent amount of it, anyhow) and I kinda liked it.  Agreed, though, definitely not going to win it all in my book, but I liked it better than Wowee Zowee, at any rate.

Also, with all the hype I see it get on this forum I really wanted to enjoy it, but goddamn I just cannot bring myself to like Spiderland.  Seriously grating music, to me.

A lot of the stuff this forum seems to love almost never attracts me on first listen.  I listened to Spiderland 2 years ago and thought it sucked.  But then I started listening to a bunch of post-rock, and I actually really liked it the second time I listened to it.  Same thing with Agalloch and Kyuss.  


As far as NMH goes, I might vote it through next round, but no further.  


Low post:  The Low album that was nominated is the only one I haven't heard.  I really liked Tyranny of Distance, so much that it would've beat every other Low album except for Trust.  Which wasn't nominated, hence my decision.

I think there's a little bit of conscious desire to not let the usual suspects win, but not enough of a desire to let relative newcomers *cough* Black Moth Super Rainbow *cough* Agalloch *cough cough* get very far.

I have compiled every vote from this post and earlier.

Holy crap are there some tight races!
  • Nothing in the blue bracket is tight - the winners are nearly locked in.
  • There are two close races in the yellow bracket - each within one vote of each other.
  • The green bracket has two races each within two votes of each other, along with one race that is in a dead heat!
  • Orange has one one-vote race as well.


Again, you have until appx. 20:00GMT on 30 March 2009 to get your votes in. However, if you change your votes between now and then, and you are above this post, please PM me to inform me that you've edited your post. Otherwise I won't know you edited it, and your old vote will be counted.

I'm compiling these votes differently than I did the initial nominations. It's a bit more time-consuming, but it ensures me that all votes are counted (whereas I missed a few [see page one] for the initial nominations).

Have a good weekend!

I wish Black Moth Super Rainbow well and all, but aside from some of the beats they use I'm just really not into it. It's a timbre thing; it's like someone took some talented people and then paid them money to create an album while only using sounds I find irritating.

Also, I actively like Public Enemy quite a bit.

Yeah, it's probably too much to expect them to win, but I was hoping some of the more edgy kinds of music would make it far.  Most of this stuff is relatively inoffensive-sounding until you get to Dopethrone, Agalloch, BMSR, Opeth, Black Sabbath, and a couple of the punk albums. 

Public Enemy is good and all, but take away their lyrics and you have an assortment of beats and samples that kind of form a song.  Do that for BMSR, and it makes me feel like I'm in a secret field that no one else knows about.  I was hoping more people would know what that felt like.  But the whole weirder music/lyric debate is not something I want to start.



How many other people have music transport their minds to some alien location, which you could spend hours describing every minute detail of?  I'm not talking about any kind of congruence between the music and a particular moment in time of your life, like in the 'I feel so happy' thread.  Maybe I have some kind of half-assed synesthaesia?

My experience with them is more "Oh fuck, mellotrons and vocoders. I hate mellotrons and vocoders."

See, I've never had that problem with any sounds as long as they aren't too loud.





I think maybe I just listen to music the way Roger Ebert watches movies.  If that makes any sense to anyone besides myself.

I am actually surprised, shocked, and slightly appalled that no spiritualized album made it on.

Probably my fault for not nominating them.

Lucky then I decided this was the day and time to take a look at the forum to see if the voting had started yet.

All votes up to this point have been counted. If you have changed your vote in between now and my post on Friday, you must PM me or your changes will not be taken into account.

Here's how things stand thus far:
  • BLUE - Pretty much locked up. The closest matchup is a nine-vote difference.
  • YELLOW - A few matches are locked up, but a few close ones. One has a one-vote difference, one has a two-vote difference.
  • GREEN - All but one locked up, but that one has a one-vote difference AND SO HELP ME GOD IF THE (currently) LOSING ALBUM DOESN'T WIN I'M GOING TO BE PISSED IT IS A BRILLIANT ALBUM AND YOU PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T VOTE FOR IT CAN GO TO HELL
  • ORANGE - All but one locked up also. There is currently a tie between two albums in one matchup! Your vote will count! One vote might take it all! THIS COULD BE YOU!!
