Kanye West Survivor: Graduation Round

OK, so here's what happened. Last round, four songs went through without dispute:

1. Diamonds From Sierra Leone (13)
  • Remix (9)
  • Original (4)
2. Touch the Sky (12)
3. Gone (9)
4. Gold Digger (8)


Then a tiebreaker was forced as Heard 'Em Say and We Major both received 6 votes. Then, in the tiebreaker, they tied once again. Ordinarily, I would send both through. However, in the meantime, Ashley pointed out to me that THE SIREN, who voted for We Major, was an alter. This alter had voted in the Late Registration round as well, but I had no control of things by the time I noticed.

However, I do have control now. I'm not OK with the use of alters in voting (it's actually something you could get suspended for, but the mods generally don't give a fuck these days), so yeah, I'm not counting their votes in the future and handing the tie to our fifth winner, Heard 'Em Say. Yeah, it's going to piss some people off, but that's cool. If any of you are totally up in arms about this, I wouldn't mind hearing some contrary arguments, but I do believe this is the right thing to do.

As for this round, Graduation tied for second, so please vote for your four favorites.

1. Flashing Lights
2. Everything I Am
3. The Glory
4. I Wonder

5. Champion
6. Stronger
7. Good Life
8. Good Morning
9. Big Brother
10. Can't Tell Me Nothing
11. Homecoming
12. Drunk and Hot Girls
13. Barry Bonds

This one is a bit NLOTHy: the middle of the album totally sucks. I really like it though for the most part. Interesting new direction with the beats; it's definitely a transitional record into a colder, less soulful sound that he would follow up on with 808s and, to a lesser extent, MBDTF.

This is the best thing about Can't Tell Me Nothing:

Can't Tell Me Nothing with Zach Galifianakis - High Quality Video - YouTube

You're forgetting that some people may not have voted because they didn't want to break the tie. Should have asked a mod to alter the poll.

Fuck this.

Up until an hour or two ago Heard 'Em Say had the lead and had sustained it throughout the morning, so I doubt that was a significant factor.

You did the right thing. Anyone reading the tiebreaker thread knew there was an alter situation and should have voted (or abstained) accordingly.

Voted for Flashing Lights, Champion, Stronger and Can't Tell Me Nothing.

Shame to see no other votes for Champion yet, hope it picks up. Not many Kanye songs beat how that opens:

Did you realise / that you were a champion in their eyes
Yes I did / so I packed it up and took it back to the crib

Dag, I forgot this album is actually pretty good. It was tough picking just four. Even Barry Bonds is pretty decent, and while I'd never call it a good song, Drunk and Hot Girls has at least made me laugh a couple of times. The presence of T-Pain on the Good Life is actually a net positive. Tho I'll just pretend that Chris Martin song doesn't exist.

Kinda wanted to vote for Good Morning if only for this

You got D's muh fuckah

You should really only consider 7 of those votes for gold digger since I actually went in and voted for only that song, despite the fact that I'm pretty sure I've never heard it. I was just in the mood to be a jerk.

I wouldn't worry about Gold Digger. It'll get bounced pretty early because apparently people hate FUN.

On a different note, I did listen to a few of the tracks from college dropout the other day, and they weren't half as awful as I remembered them being. It's funny how much more tolerable they were removed from the lyrics being repeated incessantly by over-privileged suburban white kids pretending to be "gangsta". All Falls Down and We Don't Care are actually almost good.

Yep. Apparently it's something you don't need to have
