Kanye West Survivor: Final Round (Diamonds vs. All of the Lights)

Last round, Power was eliminated with 5 votes.

We're finally here, guys. Fuck yeah. This poll will run for three days, so by Saturday afternoon we'll have a winner. To avoid any confusion, we will continue to vote for least favorites, though honestly the vote functions the same either way once it's an either/or choice.

Thanks for hanging in there for this. We've consistently had 10 votes a round, so that's pretty good.

Really, really hurts to do it, but I'm voting Diamonds. It's nearly impossible for me to pick between the two but All of the Lights is perfect. It's a beautifully composed track with hard-hitting beats, emotional strings and DAT CHORUS. Hip-hop tracks don't often have singalong choruses that potent, but Rihanna delivers.

Diamonds is unbelievable too. Kanye just tears it up. The sample is sublime. Really one of his most epic, angry tracks and it gets overlooked as a single with inferior tracks like Gold Digger and Stronger getting radio play. But it's not surprising, really; Diamonds is Kanye with a strong, weighty message and not everyone can dig that. Yeezus is bringing that sort of intensity so far though and I'm excited about that.

It's my top two Kanye songs left. Couldn't be happier with the results. I'll throw a vote to All of the Lights though.

I didn't read the damn poll because I'm dumber than a twelve year old. Change my vote? Cheers, LM.

No problem Bonnie, I'm trying to have the poll adjusted. I don't want anyone assuming this is a blowout and voting Diamonds to make things interesting.

Aren't they really the same thing, though?

I don't like either of those songs, though.

By that logic, All of the Lights won by a pretty good distance then.

You know how this alter bullshit can be avoided? Don't vote with alters. Pretty simple. My eyes about rolled out of my head when I saw that shit. I don't enjoy feeling like a humorless asshole, but it happens from time to time. I'm sorry. I love you guys. That just drives me up the wall for whatever reason.

Anyway, All of the Lights is the winner. See you next time when we do the Worst Mumford & Sons Song Survivor. The loser gets thrown in a volcano, and the winner also gets thrown in a volcano.
