Man, I swear, if you guys pick by band rep rather than album, I will find out and I will end you.

I hope I am doing this right! I am worried that I didn't put enough thought into this so I'm sorry, everyone, for not putting enough thought into this. I also skipped a bunch (if I have seriously never listened to one of the albums cause I figured that isn't fair), which I'm assuming is alright. I tried not to, though.

The list of current votes on the previous page has been updated. There's been some minor changes. For one thing, Modest Mouse is not only one vote behind Boris, The Clash have pulled pretty far ahead of Nick Cave, EitS and Velvet Underground are neck and neck, and Dylan is pulling pretty well ahead of Coltrane. There's still plenty of intense jockeying going on though.

I can understand Sonic Youth and Sigur Ros winning, but not Kyuss over BSS.  I'd be profoundly unsurprised if a lot of people didn't bother listening to "Welcome to Sky Valley" before voting against it.

I wouldn't go that far. A lot of people really, really like BSS. Honestly, the only reason I ever said anything is because I have a comically bad relationship with Husker Du. I don't even like Agalloch that much and I still voted against Husker Du.

The list is updated again! Yes, I'm bored. All votes are current. Lots of albums are pulling ahead now but there are some really close races still. Things to watch: Silkworm vs. Slint (16-18), Sabbath vs. Sonic Youth (19-19), Bedhead vs. Mountain Goats (16-18), Wilco vs. Mogwai (17-19), The Unicorns vs. Iron and Wine (17-19), BSS vs. Kyuss (18-17), Silkworm vs. Pixies (17-19) and Boris vs. Modest Mouse (19-17). Lots of others are within three but plenty are way ahead by now and seem to be pretty definite winners of this round, assuming these voting trends continue.

Figured out why Loveless, 20 Jazz Funk Greats and All the Pretty Little Horses were excluded - one of you three nominated them as ALBUM - BAND, rather than BAND - ALBUM, and when I copied them into excel, I didn't catch it. So there are two nominations of Throbbing Gristle - 20 Jazz Funk Greats and one nomination of 20 Jazz Funk Greats - Throbbing Gristle. Same thing with the other two albums. I'm used to always writing (formatting) music as Band - Album. I tried to ensure I copied everything properly, but obviously missed on this one. Again, apologies.

Also, is it really necessary to do the running count of who's in the lead? That kinda takes away the surprise of the whole thing, and the surprise is kinda the point. I obviously can't stop you from doing so, but I must admit it's a bit annoying...

Well you did organize this thing so I'll take that to heart and call it quits on the tallying. I mean, I don't think the whole point is the surprise of who wins each round and personally I like seeing the jockeying for position, if you will, of the closer races but I shall stop posting that data nonetheless.

Ah, since I was the only one that nominated all three of those, I'm the one who screwed it up.  I was thinking since it's an album nomination, the albums should be primary.  Though, in my defense, I bolded the band names and italicized the album titles, as per the instructions.  Even formatted it as "[album] BY [band]".

Still, the joke's on me since my later edits involved adding those three albums---which I liked and which already had 2 other nominations---in place of albums that only I'd nominated, to make sure at least some of my choices got in. :(

Also in that case, Daydream Nation, mclusky do dallas and Unknown Pleasures should be higher in the brackets, since I guess my votes for those were misformatted too.

Because Loveless is pretty goddamned terrible and one of the most over-rated albums ever.

No, I caught those. Daydream Nation really only had two nominations, Mclusky had three, as did Unknown Pleasures. I think it's because I know who Joy Division and Sonic Youth are, and Mclusky is in both the album and artist name as the first word, so I corrected them when I sorted the list.

--Edit--
Fixed the brackets on the first page. Take another look if you want to see how they're supposed to look.

Yea, thanks a ton Matt, and high five forum for keeping this thing going & interesting.

As for the albums, Beatles vs. Mono were probably my hardest vote.  I'm a little disapointed Ted Leo isn't doing as well as i thought he would, same for Modest Mouse (but I've been on a major MM kick lately).

Raw Power by The Stooges also should have been counted.  Looks like this was because some people nominated it as being by "Iggy and the Stooges" and some (notably, me) nominated it as just being by "Stooges".  Ah well, c'est la vie.

The Wrens (this one too)
The Beatles (Sorry MONO! Thanks for playing.)

Yeah, thanks a ton for doing this, Matt!  I hadn't heard a majority of the albums that ended up seeded, so I was introduced to a lot of new music in the interest of voting fairly.  Jawbreaker and Agalloch, especially; plus I rediscovered my love for these Opeth, EitS, and BSS albums.

As for the albums, Beatles vs. Mono were probably my hardest vote.  I'm a little disapointed Ted Leo isn't doing as well as i thought he would, same for Modest Mouse (but I've been on a major MM kick lately).
Hardest was a tie between Abbey Road v You Are There and Paranoid v Daydream Nation.
I went for Mono and Sabbath because I figured considering the forum they were probably the underdogs.

I honestly wouldn't have expected Mono to be an underdogg to the Beatles  here but I consider it a testament to how fucking good an album Abbey Road is.

I mean shit I nearly voted for Kid A over Sgt Peppers and only Lovely Rita held me back.
