|Nice contest, gents. Already looking forward to the next one.|
|good luck to all of you who voted against Shub...u pissed of one oft the great old ones... ( or an Outer God, as she has been classfied as both of these things). |
Anyway...Carmen is a worthy winner (though I think I maybe wouldn't have voted for it, if it weren't so good dang hot; Il Bacio Della Medusa didn't fit the weather. )
|at least not Shub. adios|
|@hansolo yeah, Carmen is perfect summertime prog. We'll have to risk the wrath of the shub-niggurath this time ;)|

|Damn... missed the final somehow but it doesn't look like my vote would have changed much..|
Congrats Sharktooth man! A great pick and many great picks throughout this one! Definitely some albums to add to the regular roster
|All the round 1 matchups except 2 and 5 were very close for me as you can see|
|Bloody Epic. I’m exhausted.|
11 is best.
|Good Shit, check out Civilisation by Southern Empire. Might give some of these a run for their money.|
|Good job on the tourney, Friday, and thanks to keep us entertained once again. Out of curiosity, how do you match up the contestants? Is it always calculated or you toss a coin or something?|
My favorites, if I don't count mine;
1- Il Bacio Della Medusa
2- Carmen (has grown on me a lot lately)
6- Golden Earring
7- Mostly Autumn
8- The Future Kings of England
9- Shub (has grown on me a lot lately)
I've enjoyed to play that game with you guys. To all the proggers, keep on p/
|@Jethro I handpick the Discovery matches based on the description, dates, similarities, etc., but then after that the pairings are in order of appearance.|
|@soul interesting, I'll have to check it out.|
|I thought that this tourney's entries were better and more closely matched than in previous contests. I was sorry to see albums go right from the beginning. I'll be returning to all of them in the future. |
Shub-Niggurath and Carmen were a tie for first place for me. They are both great, but in such different ways. That was the hardest round for me to decide. After that it went like this:
3. Il Bacio Della Medusa
5. Gosta Berlings Saga
8. Mostly Autumn
9. Il paese dei balocchi
10. Golden Earring
It was fun. Thanks Friday, you make it look easy, but I know you put a lot of time into it... Enjoy your vacation!
|Might as well get in on this. This was my Top Ten:|
2. Mostly Autumn
4. Gosta Berlings Saga
6. Golden Earring
7. The Future Kings of England
8. Portal (CAN)
9. Eden (GER)
|I'm sorry for not having voted in the final match! I returned home a few hours ago, I've been away for a week-ish which is why I wasn't much active (no internet or phone in general most of the time). Still, great tourney as always. My favorite discovery has to be Shub.|
|This was a really great tourney, I did not have enough time to be able to vote on the matches regrettably but I love |
I really owe it to myself and everyone else to give all of these a relisten just to catch up post-tourney
|Sorry guys to be so late to do my last commentary about this tourney. But, as we usually say, it's better late than never.|
I loved it. This was my second time but I loved both. I hope that Friday continue with these tourneys and if I can, I will participate for sure.
This tourney brought to me very important things. It brought to me many albums and bands that I never heard to talk before. It also made me check bands and albums that I knew by name but that I never have checked before. But, above all, it made me check great music moments with some great prog jewels. Still, I must confess that my great discover, the album that impressed me most was the album of Shub-Niggurath, a pearl of the dark side of prog. Last year it happened the same with me with the album of Island. You know, I'm a very eclectic guy in terms of prog, and music in general. Above all I like great music.
So, thanks to you, Friday, in this moment I'm more rich that I was before, in terms of prog. Long life to your tourneys my friend and many thanks.
|"Still, I must confess that my great discover, the album that impressed me most was the album of Shub-Niggurath, a pearl of the dark side of prog. Last year it happened the same with me with the album of Island"|
Indeed, we see eye to eye about this. I'll definitely get back to Shub.
|Shub-Niggurath was robbed. I demand a recount! ;-)|
|It seems that are many other guys here who likes the dark side of prog, too. Great guys.|
"I demand a recount! ;-)"
Let's do that. Lol.
|I still vote "Hell no!", heh heh.|
I have to say, at the beginning of the tournament, I wouldn't have expected Carmen to win, not because I didn't like it (it was one of my favorites of the tournament), but just because it's an unusual album, and not at all the kind of music I would immediately think of if someone said the word "prog". But good on Carmen for stretching the boundaries of the genre.
|have mine ready for the next tourney, lets roll|
|Yeah, Diva. "Carmen" was precisely one of the albums that I had heard great things about it before and that I never had the opportunity or the will to check. Thanks to this tournament, finally I did so.|
|I just graduated from law school and finally have a bit of time on my hands.|
You guys know what that means: PROOOOOOOGGGGG!!!
|so you... progressed... in your education?|
|What a coincidence! I'm currently progging =P|
Annnd second, I was to suggest you a few prog albums in days to come!...
Congrats on your graduation, man!
|Thanks! FYI everyone, I'm planning to begin the preliminary on Wednesday and start the first round on Friday.|
|Shifting through for my rec now. I’ve got 2 ideas, but idk which would be better received. Based on the success of Slapp Happy and Henry Cow I’d go one way, but based on the hatred that same album garnered I’d go the other, haha|
|First of all, congrats on your graduation, man. Second, I'm very glad to know that the tradition is to continue, which means, that we are going to have another prog tourney organised by you. Third, I'm a bit worried with it due to the date of its begining. Unfortunatelly, I'm going to start a trip for six days abroad. The departure is precisely in the next Wednesday and the return is only in monday 13. So, it's absuletely quite impossible for me to be present at the beginning of it. However, it doesn't pass through my head that I can't participate in it. So, maybe I can participate as an outsider guest, as happened with Intruder, rather than participateingas a true contestant. It will be a different and interestinmg chalenge, too, I'm sure of it. Tell me something, my friend.|
|@e21 Aw that would make me too sad if you weren't in this! If it's just six days you can catch up and it will be fine. If you have an album just send it to me ASAP with a short description like usual and I'll stick it in when we start! :)|
|Yeah e just enter early. I’m sure everyone will be cool with that|
|It's that time again, my friends.|
