1. Hollowgen vs. ChrisKnudsen
ChrisKnudsen

Tough one, as honestly there's only 1 cd of the list of 20 I own.

2. TripWire vs. Lokimok
Lokimok
Another close one, as top 5 for Trip Wire is ace, yet he lost ground in the
2nd half, whereas Lokimok started slow and came back strong in the last 5

3. monkish vs. illennium
illenium
mokfish has a lot of older, stuff and as I'm a younger generation that doesn't appeal.

4. Numanoid vs. BadlyDrawnBoy
BadlyDrawnBoy
Anyone who picks a username after a band is an idiot!!

I like Numanoid's picks a lot, but I had to go with myself.

5. DJLinus vs. orangecrush18
DJLinus
Anyone who recognises the genius that is Jarvis Cocker gets my vote. then he adds in Tribe Called Quest,
James, and the beasties.


6. Flynn vs. Rogue588
Rogue588
A bitch of a pick, unlike the 1st group, I have 10 of 20 in this list, so its harder.
My vote goes to Roque, but I was very impressed with Flynn's list esp as he came in late
each day with his votes. and wasn't in the mix for the early morning shuffle .

7. jimdrix vs. Drexl
jimdrix
a pretty even matchup here, both have some greats, and some more edgy stuff, but I'll give it to
jimdrix

8. Sweet Baby James vs. cdollaz
cdollaz
As I watched these come in SBJ had a real solid pick but I think that cdollaz complete collection
just shades it. Esp for Teenager of the Year.

9. auto vs. Vryce
Vryce
As a whole auto's collection is ace, but I think Vryce has a much stronger setlist.

10. mano365 vs. ryuryu2949
mano365
i have a fear of DMB, I don't think he's value add. I'll admit that the Santana in mano365 almost ruled out
the DMB neg, but the resto of the set is hot.

11. whaaat vs. Giles
Giles
I knew all along I'd be with Giles on his picks, as he and I have very similar tastes, and he went more
with his heart on the choices. Anyone who picks Boo Radley's as his nr 1, when pretty few people have heard
of them is brave.

12. Damfino vs. A.D.D. for DVD
A.D.D. for DVD
Overall a much stronger set. couple of weak links but appeals to me.

13. cleaver vs. The Bus
The bus
I think the bus is my overall top pick.. So that's a simple one.

14. maxfisher vs. deadlax
maxfisher
did I say the bus was my top pick, I hope he and maxfisher are not matched up in the early rounds.

15. Hiro11 vs. Mordred
Mordred
Real nice collection very rounded.


16. Fandango vs. Apex Twin
Fandango
Another matchup that I'd rather have seen later in the game.. Both excellent picks, but Fandango actually
has another top top set.

1. Hollowgen vs. ChrisKnudsen
ChrisKnudsen - I am sorry to say I have only heard 5 of Hollowgen's picks. I must be too young. Also, Weezer and Slayer push me over to Chris' side.


2. TripWire vs. Lokimok
Tripwire - Again, my age favors newer bands. But Lokimok has some GREAT records. The Violent Femmes really tipped the scales for me and the Bjork set is super.


3. monkish vs. illennium
monkish - Elvis Costello and They Might Be Giants swung it in his/her favor.


4. Numanoid vs. BadlyDrawnBoy
numanoid - This was really tough for me, I don't like Neil Diamond at all, but Devo and Duran Duran are both just great.


5. DJLinus vs. orangecrush18
orangecrush18 - The Deluxe editions tipped it my way . Also, I listen to the Mars Volta at least one every day at work.


6. Flynn vs. Rogue588
Flynn - #1, 5, 7 and 10. Rogue's #5 and #10 nearly stole this for me.


7. jimdrix vs. Drexl
Drexl - #1, #2 & #5. Jimdrix's #5 & #7 made this decision tough.


8. Sweet Baby James vs. cdollaz
cdollaz - soooo close, but he just has more records I love. BTW - I almost chose Sweet Baby James simply for his #1 pick.


9. auto vs. Vryce
Vryce - his #2 is sublime.


10. mano365 vs. ryuryu2949
Ryuryu2949 - I vote for you for the same reason I want to vote against you: you stole more of my future picks than anyone else. And not just in this draft


11. whaaat vs. Giles
whaaat - choice #1


12. Damfino vs. A.D.D. for DVD
damfino - #1, 2, 3, 4, 6 & 10. That is all


13. cleaver vs. The Bus
The Bus - I don't like cleaver's #3, 4, or 6. The Bus' #1, 2, & 3 did it for me.


14. maxfisher vs. deadlax
maxfisher - #2 & #5


15. Hiro11 vs. Mordred
mordred - #1, 5, 7 & 8.


16. Fandango vs. Apex Twin
Apex Twin - tough, but the GREAT jazz wins out.

That was the nice thing about voting first. No one could come back and say I voted against them if they didn't vote for me.

Not that I think anyone would accuse anyone else of that.

But I like it that my votes were in before others so I was truly unbiased, except against auto... that is a given though that everyone is going to vote for themself.

Out of a total of 15 votes cast so far, only 1 was from a non-participant(Thor Simpson). We really need to figure out some sort of way to get more votes from outside of the principals. Any suggestions?

Lots of close races. 10-9 in my favorso far against auto.. but still lots of time for more votes. So who know who will reign supreme.

Okay, here we go.

Round 1: ChrisKnudsen (Dr. Octagon and Weezer slightly trumps Peter Gabriel)
Round 2: TripWire (as much as I adore VU & Nico, TW's list had more albums I love)
Round 3: monkish (XTC, TMBG, EC ; the Stone Roses disc is one of my all-time faves, but the bulk of illennium's list is made up of albums that I want to listen to, but haven't yet. Bummer.)
Round 4: BadlyDrawnBoy (as much as I admire Numanoid's list, two words: Purple Rain)
Round 5: DJLinus (quite possibly the best collection in this game )
Round 6: Rogue588 ("Lights please..." A Christmas album was a ballsy choice that paid off; it helps that I dug out the Christmas music last week)
Round 7: jimdrix (Man, this is the toughest one so far. But considering I'm wearing my Revolver shirt right now...)
Round 8: cdollaz (The Clash vs. Cash. Now, there's a toss-up)
Round 9: Vryce (same problem as Round 3)
Round 10: ryuryu2949 (Tribe. 'Nuff said. Plus Goldie was a great choice)
Round 11: Giles (Can't believe the Muppets beat out Pet Sounds, but the inclusion of Yaz gives it the edge)
Round 12: Damfino (chalk it up to my personal bias against Nevermind being the #1 everything)
Round 13: The Bus (Ol' Blue Eyes, the Smiths, and Miles Davis? Yep.)
Round 14: maxfisher (69 reasons to choose this one)
Round 15: Mordred (PE #1 gets the job done. That and I hate Sonic Youth)
Round 16: Fandango (Great mix of electronic and hip-hop)

Now, to see how I'm doing thus far...
