You're still not making a clear suggestion.

Are you proposing that in round 1 of Album X, everybody votes for their favourite track, and the song with the highest vote proceeds while the rest proceed to round 2? Then in round 2, everybody votes for their favourite of the remaining tracks, and the song with the highest vote proceeds? Etc., etc., until the album achieves its quota for the finals?

It could be interesting, I'll give you that, and might be good to try in EYKIW with U2. Still wouldn't be as long as the least-favourite-vote Survivor - which, may I point out, is called Survivor because it directly lifts the form of elimination from the TV show.

(And you complained about finals seeding, so who the hell knows with you.)

The album cover is great because it's eponymous. I mean, that image is supposed to sum up the Cure. Imagine if U2 came back with this

At least they'd be being honest.

ugh, yes! pissed me off. zomg i don't know this song, but imma vote anyway! bitches. how about you just not vote if you don't know all the songs listed. viva davidoff is really the worst, really? it's funny because you hear people rag on songs like red light or even crazy tonight, but i've never once heard "oh man, that fucking viva davidoff...worst ever!"

if i could turn back time :cher: i would've committed sacrilege and just not put any passengers songs or b-sides on there. none of this voting for the song you don't recognise crap.

I don't think I could be any clearer.

Vote for your favorite song.

Done.

No game.

Wax nostalgic about your favorite song. The more waxing the better.

And take a step back. You're kinda agro.

I wasn't here for that survivor, and actually, thanks to it, it was the only reason I ever heard "Viva Davidoff". So, I mean, there was one positive. Like I said, I really like the song, find it quite pleasant.

But that sucks that that's what ended up happening, I agree, if it were ever done again, it would probably be best to either 1) Do only album songs or 2) Leave out the SUPER obscure stuff and Passengers.
