It's how people vote, and it'd be wrong to change that, but I feel it puts the lists at a disadvantage because of that little oversight. If you like listening to the list, then vote for it, don't try and mask it in some false rhetoric and bullshit in order to make yourself sound more intelligent.
Well said!

I definitely thought I'd be out very quickly because of the lack of concept but the two playlists in the final don't have one. I guess it does come down to the music for most people. I only vote based on the music anyway.

I told you guys that like a month ago.

Concepts don't get you votes. They get you praise from a few people who can only vote for you once.

I remember you saying that before I even submitted my list, Mr Melon.

As it should.

I ask myself this as I vote:

- Do I like the music?
- Is this something I'd revisit in the future?
- How's it put together? Does the music go together well?
- How diverse are the song choices?

The first one is the most important, of course, but the rest have some importance in the grand scheme of things.

Do you all do a similar thing?

And this result...for the fourth year in a row...confirms it.

Don't obsess over concepts, people.

This is superfluous.

The final results do show that, but some people get screwed at the beginning because others put emphasis on that in earlier rounds.

I think all four of those are important when deciding who to vote for. A diverse and well put together playlist will always get high marks from me.

Yes.

I try and listen to as much of each list as possible. Some lists I've looked at and reckoned I wouldn't like some songs because I thought I didn't like the band. In some cases it turns out I really enjoyed some of the music. I'm still not that big on Sigur Ros but the music is quite beautiful, especially in that hoppipollaloppalpoapo song that phanan has, (still don't like the singing so much, sorry ). It fits well into his playlist.

Sometimes the context makes up for not liking the song at first. Death metal is the exception, however.

Songs about the melting ice caps can never be forgiven.

Haha same here! Whatever I've heard of Sigor Ros, I've found it really boring except for that Hoppipola (or however you spell it, lol) song on Phanan's list. Man, there was some great instrumental stuff on his list!
