I do believe I just talked myself into running the Zeppelin survivor.

Wow. I thought people actually gave a shit about Radiohead's b-sides? I know a few of them have been pushed on me in the past.

I think it was more due to namkcuR being so erratic running the thing.

I think was Phanan said earlier is accurate...it's not run consistently enough to keep the attention of the voters. No one knows what the hell is going on anymore.

I'd definitely be up for REM when that happens.

REM definitely would do well.
I have all of REM's eighties albums, but beyond then, I just have Automatic For The People, Monster, and a few assorted MP3s. An REM Survivor would be all the incentive I need to finally get my act together and acquire the remainder of their discography.

Sure, it'd be low-key and we'd probably work out some quick, efficient format to avoid having a bazillion rounds, but it'd be fun.
You're right. As Prog Island encouraged folks to step into some new, if uncomfortable shoes, it could be an efficient means of attracting attention to the band, and they're a good one.

Definitely something to consider down the road, perhaps.

This is bad and probably of no use, but I am currently thinking of a format to do a PT Survivor in a quick way. The Bowie Survivor is providing inspiration.

Basically, for PT, you could have ten categories:

- On The Sunday Of Life
- Up The Downstair
- The Sky Moves Sideways
- Signify
- Stupid Dream
- Lightbulb Sun
- Recordings
- In Absentia
- Deadwing
- Fear Of A Blank Planet
- Non-album (Staircase Infinities, Nil Recurring, other rarities)

Send 3 songs from each through to the semi-finals; use the Bowie system of voting for your favourites so it's only 3 rounds per album. Perhaps due to their relative unpopularity, OTSOL and UTD only send two songs and IA and ... Stupid Dream? Deadwing? send four.

Semi-finals are two groups of 15. Again, Bowie system; this time top five from each.

Final is a group of 10. Proceeds as per normal Survivor elimination until one song is left.

There's a spur-of-the-moment idea. I know it wouldn't be used for ages, especially as I lack the premium powers to start it myself. But I thought I'd toss it around because it's 2:40am and I've nothing better to do.

And I don't have that album, nor much interest in hearing it, to be honest.

Can't remember the albums I've got now. Looking on RYM, II is definitely one of them. Maybe the other's Physical Graffiti ...

I agree that certain albums should have less represented and others more, based on their popularity.

Interesting idea. We'll have to revisit it at the right time.

Houses Of The Holy is by far their most creative and experimental. IV probably their most consistent. II is a good example of their bluesier side, but I wouldn't call it their best. Physical Graffiti is a mixed bag for me.

The right time=after Axver's uploaded everything and everyone's had a chance to listen.
