MusicTalk Draft Game - Round 1 Voting (Everyone can vote!)

Welcome to round one of the MusicTalk Draft Tournament! In this thread, the players drafted a virtual “collection” of ten albums. Now, it is up to you, the MusicTalk community, to vote on which player has drafted the best collection.

For round 1, all the players have been randomly paired up. In order to vote, you need to reply to this post telling me who you think has the best lineup. Your vote will not count unless you vote on every pair! In addition, once you post your votes, you CANNOT edit that post for any reason. Edited voting posts will not be counted.

Players in the game are also allowed to vote. Optionally, they are also allowed to post to this thread telling everybody why they think you should vote for their collection.

So, let the voting begin! Voting ends on Tuesday, November 8th, at the exact time of the timestamp of this post. Match-ups will be listed in the first reply to this post.

Good luck to all the participants!

This is going to take more time than my lunch break provides, so I'll have to make my picks this evening.

Why should you vote for me over my esteemed challenger?

This was rough. Every list seems to have one album I really hate, 6-7 albums I really like and 2-3 albums I REALLY love. Feels like a coin flip sometimes. The one guy I would have voted for if he'd been against almost any other list is Giles. I feel almost bad not voting for him.

Also, one day for voting seems awfully short. I never played any of the other list games, but I think with a little bit longer (in later rounds at least) we could actually listen to more of the music (I sure couldn't get to everything in the past two weeks).

Wow, that is a lot of matches!

A few coments on my matchup:
10. mano365 vs. ryuryu2949

mano365
1. Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness
2. Interpol: Turn on the Bright Lights
3. Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin [box set]
4. The Killers: Hot Fuss (Limited Edition)
5. Queen: A Night at the Opera
6. Santana: Santana
7. Big L: The Big Picture
8. Jay-Z: Reasonable Doubt
9. Mocean Worker: Mixed Emotional Features
10. Cake: Prolonging the Magic

ryuryu2949
1. The Beatles: Ultimate Box Set [box set]
2. Guns N' Roses: Appetite for Destruction
3. 2Pac: All Eyez On Me
4. Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
5. Weezer: Weezer ("Blue Album") (Deluxe Edition)
6. Beck: Odelay
7. A Tribe Called Quest: The Low End Theory
8. Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds: Live at Luther College
9. Bob Marley: Legend
10. Goldie: Timeless


With regard to Mano's collection, I like his Pumpkins pick, don't like his Interpol pick, and despise his Killers pick. I love Jay-Z and Big L as MCs, but Reasonable doubt is a notch below Blueprint Vol. 1 and Big L's album was a huge letdown compared to his talent.

As for our boxsets, I really like Zeppelin, but they can't hang with the Beatles. That one is almost unfair to Mano. Props for the Queen pick, when you could have chickened out and taken one of the greatest hits collection. Cake is ok, not sure about that specific album. Havent heard of Moclean workers, but I will check it out. Nothing on his list approaches the energy of Weezerm, the vibe of Tribe, or the originality of Wilco and Beck. And Appetite for Destruction kicks serious ass.

I had been thinking about my picks since the final round ended.

Let's see.. as for a reason to vote for me... Well, you can't perfectly sync any of my competors cd's to the movie The Wizard of Oz... It works with my first pick.

And I second San Dimas High School Football ruling!

And I agree about the voting being hard. I just wanted to say to those I didn't vote for. I didn't because I hated your collections. It usually broke down to your competetitor having an album that I absolutely loved.

My thoughts came down like Mordred..

And I was almost voting for Giles... but with whaaat having Zep II and Tapestry.. that made it tough to vote against whaat.

1 - ChrisKnudsen (Weezer and DaftPunk sealed it for me)
2- TripWire (tough matchup, but this competition can really use some edgier picks)
3- monkish (again, very tough, but I don't like Liz Phair and love, love, love Songs in the Key of Life)
4- badlydrawnboy (sorry, not close; U2, Prince, Van Morrison, Pearl Jam and the Chili Peppers--wow, great lineup)
5- djlinus (very close, but flaming lips and midnight marauders made my mind up)
6- Flynn (steal with that Pink Floyd pick, and the Travis pick was inspired as well)
7- jimdrix (so far, the best matchup in the competition. not much I can say here, except Who's Next and Revolver are the best two albums in this matcup, and both are jimdrix's)
8- sweetbabyjames (Johnny Cash and the Boss, a good 1-2 punch)
9- vryce (sorry auto, but you gave yourself a tough matchup; Dark Side and Dummy are two of the top 10 albums in the entire draft)
10- ryuryu2949 (with all due respect, the Killers in round 4? are you kidding me?)
11- whaat (good matchup; I love pet sounds, and Wagner was an anti-semite)
12- add for dvd (NWA and Buena Vista, who would have thought those two would go so well together)
13- cleaver (wow, great collection; and of course, "Jim Morrison is a drunken buffoon posing as a poet")
14- maxfisher (great Queen and Dinosaur Jr albums)
15- morded (ran out of things to say)
16- Aphex Twin (in the battle of Apex albums, the one with Boy/Girl song wins; oh, and a little Miles and Nas never hurt anybody).

I don't even wear gloves. Well, sometimes Freaky Freezies, but that is about it.

Yeah, you can't say that auto chickened out and rigged the brackets

Does the 2nd round go, Winner of #1 vs Winner of #2, or do you rerandomize?

Should we post in the Other forum that this is going on so that we can have some outside voting?

The only comments I will make on my match up are relating to DJ's #5 and my #1

5. DJLinus vs. orangecrush18

DJLinus
5. The Cure: Disintegration

orangecrush18
1. The Cure: Pornography (Deluxe Edition)

Disintegration is one great album, but it features the only Cure song I hate: Pictures of you. I think that Pornography is a consistently better record.

Also, if you haven't heard the Faint you should download some songs from their website. They deserve more attention than they get and are better than most of their label mates.

Round 1

My votes:
1. ChrisKnudsen
2. TripWire
3. illenium
4. Numanoid
5. DJ Linus
6. Flynn
7. Drexl
8. cdollaz
9. auto
10. ryuryu2949
11. Giles
12. ADD for DVD
13. The-Bus
14. maxfisher
15. Hiro11
16. Fandango


Please only view my reasons after you've voted yourself.

My reasons:
Spoiler:

1. Neutral Milk Hotel sealed the deal. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with almost every single Hollowgen pick. I may know about them, but I have not heard them.
2. Lokimok's picks are all classics, but TripWire picked albums by some of my favorite bands.
3. This one was really difficult. illenium won by a hair.
4. Another tough one. I vote for Numanoid on this one because it seems like the ten albums have an overall theme.
5. This one wasn't easy. As a list of artists, I prefer orangecrush, but we're voting on albums and DJLinus takes it.
6. This one was easy. (No offense, Rogue). I like all of Rogue's picks (well, not #3) but Flynn's tastes resonate closely with mine.
7. Drexl gets it by a hair 'cuase of Nirvana.
8. I don't like Rush. cdollaz still gets it for great picks. IMO SBJ picked the best box set out of anyone but I don't know much of his middle picks.
9. Another tough one. auto's Lips, Heads, and Soul picks sealed the deal.
10. Great picks overall. And the Beatles box set did not go into the equation for this one.
11. Giles's newer picks struck a chord.
12. Damfino had three picks I've actually heard. ADD had three, but one of them was Nevermind. Goes to ADD.
13. Go me!
14. I'm not a big Floyd fan, but maxfisher's picks I liked a lot. Critically, deadlax might win, but I haven't heard his picks.
15. Another tough one. Hiro11 wins because of his last-round pick.
16. This should be interesting. Fandango's list doesn't have a single flaw. As much as I love Apex's picks, Fandango gets it. I would've liked to see these two guys compete in other brackets, as I think either of them could've gone quite far (in my votes, at least).

This was rough. Every list seems to have one album I really hate, 6-7 albums I really like and 2-3 albums I REALLY love. Feels like a coin flip sometimes.
This is exactly how I felt when making my picks. Some of my picks came down to just a particular fondness of a certain album. Anywho, here are my picks-

1. Hallowgen
2. TripWire
3. illennium
4. BadlyDrawnBoy
5. orangecrush18
6. Rogue588
7. Drexl
8. Sweet Baby James
9. Vryce
10. ryuryu2949
11. Giles
12. Damfino
13. The Bus
14. deadlax
15. Mordred
16. Fandango
