Ok, votes have been tallied and done up real pretty. Infinite thanks to rob (thepiedpiper) for actually doing all the work.

There were originally 4 ties but what we decided is that there were only two sets of votes that fell out of thhe period for only a few hours. We counted those and the ties were all broken. This won't happen again though.

The matchups now are:















When voting please make sure to list both album and artist. It makes counting easier.

Deadline: 23:59 sunday 20th

Ooooh, fancy graphics.  I might come back and vote in this post later.  When's the deadline, by the way, or did I miss it?

Arcade Fire - Funeral

Sufjan Stevens - Come on Feel the Illinoise!

This should be interesting.


Nice graph by the way. Very fancy. Pretty colors.

I'm pleasantly surprised that Franz Ferdinand made it to the second round. Although, considering the forums taste, I don't think it'll go further. But we never know.

Man, I wish I was a bit more versed in music in general.  I mean, I won't honestly be able to post a vote until I listen to all of these albums, and I do not think I have the time to.  It seems pretty impossible.

Okay I only JUST noticed The Earth is Not a Cold, Dead Place vs. Our Endless Numbered Days. Christ.

I just immediately put Iron & Wine down because it is like my favourite album ever (one of only two I can think of off-hand that I love dearly and completely without hesitation (the other is Graceland)) but goddamn. I lost my virginity to The Earth is Not a Cold, Dead Place for crying out loud! There's a lot of sentimentality involved in that!

I stand by my choice. But still looking at the other guy and winking at him and passing him my number on a napkin because I can still have them both, right?

He has a style. One that says "You should change your N/A to Fugazi or he will rip your head off". Also a lot of these are just I want to put something down. Especially since Owls, Mclusky, and Fugazi will win. Also All Hail West Texas.

Grumble grumble Botch got voted out you all suck grumble. Sadly, this one was really easy. A lot of voting for the OK over the bad or marginal preferences between two alrightish records, one occasion where they were both so boring I genuinely couldn't care less who wins and in the very few occasions where I liked both records there was always one that was a clear winner for me.

yeah at least I can get down to Franz Ferdinand is basically what I was thinking whilst I find The Books kind of tedious.

Also I'm calling it

final showdown will be The Argument vs Discovery (maybe Since I Left you will sneak in instead though which would be awesome)

Guys if you are not fucking voting for fucking Fugazi I will tear your fucking head off. Spoon? What the fuck is that shit? Is that some fucking indie pop? I don't even fucking know. All I know is it doesn't beat fucking Fugazi in any fucking aspect of any music except fucking being shit.

Fugazi was one of the reasons I had to stop listening to things.  I just couldn't take it any more.  Spoon was a welcome respite from bands that made me want to go out and begin committing indiscriminate murder.

Since it's looking like Spoon are in the lead at the moment I think that's a widespread problem 'round these parts.

I voted Fugazi, but really I didn't think The Argument was anything terribly special. I mean, I just don't think this decade belongs to them.

E! (and scarred?) I am glad to see that you have continued on in this endeavor. Although I am heartbroken over the lack of commentary about the winners and losers of the last match. HEARTBROKEN I SAY>

Anywho.


Radiohead - Kid A (Takk isn't even my third favorite Sigur Ros album)
The Weakerthans - Reconstruction Site (I have to vote against Yoshimi on principle. I was never impressed by that album at all.)
The Books - The Lemon of Pink (So very, very disappointed that Trail of Dead didn't beat Franz. C'mon, people. Double-u tee eff.)
Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (Oh, Fugazi. You were so 90s.)

Low - Things We Lost in the Fire (I haven't heard either of these albums. How the hell did MONO beat Yeah Yeah Yeahs? I am appalled.)
Death From Above 1979 - You're a Woman, I'm a Machine (Great, great disc. "Romantic Rights" could have been the only song on that album and I'd still be voting for it here.)
Battles - Mirrored (Pleasantly surprised that this beat out Leviathan. Tons of amazing songs on this disc. Catchy when it shouldn't be. Straight-forward when you wouldn't expect. Amazing.)
Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlantacism (I thought this could have been a big upset, thought Lightning Bolt could have pulled it out. Truth is, though, I'm a little emo bitch at heart.)

LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver (HOW DID ICKY THUMP MAKE IT AND NOT WHITE BLOOD CELLS!?!?!!!111oneoneoneeleven. That is all.)
Mountain Goats - All Hail West Texas (Daft Punk is not my favorite type of dance music. Anywho, I'd rather hear John Darnielle spin tales about Denton Death Metal bands anyday.)
Iron & Wine - Our Endless Numbered Days (I'd have gone with The Creek Drank the Cradle over Our Endless Numbered Days.)
Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People (Grizzly Bear can be so boooooring sometimes.)

TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain (I'm not sure I get the mclusky hype.)
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm (No love for Mastodon in the first round, wow.)
The Postal Service - Give Up (I listen to more songs on Give Up than I listen to on Turn On the Bright Lights.)
Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? (Kind of sad the Knife beat Hercules and Love Affair, but it wouldn't have changed the outcome of this match.)

The Decemberists - Castaways & Cutouts (Another cerebral songwriter vs. Daft Punk. I go the same way as last time. It happens.)
Okkervil River - Black Sheep Boy (Oh, what a fucking killer of a matchup. Black Sheep Boy holds a special place in my heart for some chillingly close-to-the-bone sentiments.)
Isis - Panopticon (I held out beleagured hope for Voxtrot here. Either way, I'm not a real Animal Collective guy, to be honest.)
Girl Talk - Feed the Animals (Hahahaha. These two albums going against each other is perfect. Didn't even realize I had set that up.)

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Yr Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven (What the hell is an Eluvium? Gotta say the lack of respect for pop and hip-hop on this board is bewildering.)
Stars - Set Yourself on Fire (Kind of expected M83 to win in the first round. Like I said, I'm not a real big Animal Collective guy, that applies for side-projects, too.)
Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene (I think the three seed had the worst first round of any other seed.)
Modest Mouse - The Moon & Antarctica (Ahh, here's where all the M83 votes went. No love for Gorillaz in the first round, either.)

Elliott Smith - From A Basement on the Hill (Not near Elliott's best work but - Oh, is this a theme? - I don't like Animal Collective
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (Thought about voting last round for Fiona Apple just on the basis of "Not About Love" alone, then I remembered how strong YHF is front to back. Can't believe BMSR beat the Microphones.)
The Strokes - Is This It? (I've always just liked Yo La Tengo. Never loved.)
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun (Why did Soulwax beat Ted Leo? Why? I am upset.)

Arcade Fire - Funeral (MONSTER matchup here. Hard to believe that Sufjan only barely made it into the tournament. But I love waving my arms around and screaming lines like "I guess we'll just have to adjuuuuuuuuuust!")
Radiohead - In Rainbows (I have nothing interesting to say here.)
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (Given time to separate Neon Bible from its predecessor, it's actually a very good disc in its own way. I used to not think so, but it has grown on me.)
Mogwai - Mr. Beast (Awww. Unwound, I still love you! It's okay!)


Still kind of in shock and awe about no love for JT, Lil Wayne, Outkast, Gnarls Barkley or any other spectacular myriad pop acts. Really? Dead Meadows is better than Futuresex/Lovesounds? Or Stankonia? Craziness.

The Books - The Lemon of Pink

pink

Death From Above, 1979 - Your A Woman, I'm a Machine
Mogwai - Happy Songs for Happy People
Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlantacism (I'm rooting for this to go far. Curious to see where it goes in this climate)

orange
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
Mountain Goats - All Hail West Texas
EitS - The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
Broken Social Scene - Your Forgot it in People (This is my choice to win it all! Wondering how that'll turn out)

Light Blue
Decemberists - Castaways and Cutouts

Stars - Set Yourself on Fire (glad to see this made it!)
Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene
Modest Mouse - Moon and Antarctica

Blue
Elliott Smith - From a Basement on a Hill
Black Moth Super Rainbow - Dandelion Gum (a really, really tough choice. Both are awesomely inventive albums. Wilco's is probably better but I think DG is more fun. I listen to it a lot more than YHF anyway).
Yo La Tengo - I'm Not Afraid of You...
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun (this SR at least has a chance of getting through. Takk doesn't stand one).

Gold
Arcade Fire - Funeral (really hope this beats Sufjan. I like Illinois a lot. It's great. But Funeral is in a class above)
Radiohead - In Rainbows
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (a total grower. Didn't think much of this when it came out. Now I think it's awesome. No where near Funeral but still great.)
