I'll refrain from voting for now. If Axver had Pink Frost (damnit) in his playlist it would have gotten my vote immediately. But it doesn't.
My playlist WOULD have had Pink Frost if, you know, it were prog. I tried to find a Chills song that could possibly pass as prog, but ... while Martin Phillipps isn't Mr Conventional Songstyle, nothing comes off as prog.

And folks, Liam's tracklist will hopefully be uploaded by the end of today.

Wow, I'm getting roundly trashed in the voting by the standards of this competition. Ah well. By the comments, it seems the scoreline isn't reflective of how close people think it is, so that makes me feel a bit better.

[...] I'm going to have to look into Subterranean Masquerade as well.
I'm pretty sure you would enjoy Spock's Beard. In fact, while their proggier albums might not be to the tastes of everyone here, I think the average U2 fan would really enjoy the Day For Night album. It's like prog done in a pop-rock fashion and works extremely well.

As for Magellan, their only song I like is Estadium Nacional, so you're actually wise not to check out any more. The rest of the Impending Ascension album ranges from mediocre to garbage. But I really like Estadium Nacional and it works in context. I haven't heard any of their other albums.

And oh, please, don't look any further into Subterranean Masquerade! Heh. That song is very much the exception. Their sole album covers a lot of ground ... there just happens to be various styles of metal throughout that ground, including death growls here and there. It's a very, very interesting, artistic, and completely "out there" album, but I don't think it'd be for you.

Since I haven't listened to both playlists yet, I haven't voted.

Haven't seen your list Liam, but I might be right there with you. Not only is my list from the jurassic age, but I've got guys singing in foreign languages.

Progressive rock for newcomers = a tough sell

Progressive rock sung in Italian = are you kidding me?

Listening to Perfect Sense from Screwtape's list. A song I never got real familiar with and don't have here at home. Been listening to it getting ready for tonight's show. Thanks, Screwtape!

Love the 2001 voice-over by Hal. "Dave, my mind is going. There is no question about it"

The earlier rounds need to be longer. It's hard to find the 4 hours of time to listen to each list. I've only heard select songs from select playlists over the course of the last week. I may have to abstain from voting in certain rounds...

Off to see Waters

You're welcome. I'm glad I've helped enhance your concert experience. The Hal-9000 intro is perfect along with everything else in the live version of the song.

I hope you enjoy the show. Remember to tell us all about it.

Can somebody email me the last track (26 min) off Axver's playlist again? For some reason it didn't download the first time and I don't wanna download the whole thing again. Thanks!

muralee_s @hotmail.com.

Going by comments made here, maybe we should ask a mod to extend the voting period in this round?

Actually, the second of my two links is solely to Stranger In Your Soul. So if you still have the original links, you can get it without downloading anything else.

My idea was this:

What we could do is make the 3rd round (which would start Saturday-ish in North America) last 72 hours giving people an extra day to listen to those last four playlists and maybe listen to the first four again. By the second round, the voting should be up along with the prog sinking in.

This round is won and I'd like to get on to the rest of the matches in this first round. Plus I suspect this matchup will appear again in the semi's.

Maybe it's to do with being 16, a shortish attention span, but my mind just does seem to wander. I'm a victim of it on YouTube as well, I usually refrain from videos over five or six minutes in length.

I've been listening to prog in all its extended glory since I was 7.

When I was seven, who needed music? I had Thomas The Tank Engine! HO scale model trains! The real deal a block away!

(Hell, who needs music now? I'm still a train nut.)

Also, I encountered a bit of a stuff-up with my upload of Liam's tracklist, so that's going to be delayed. Bah. I won't start the second round until his links are live. Screwtape, maybe I should make that one 72 hours long just so that people have a fair chance to download and play Liam's tracks?
