Retro Island Album Game: Semifinal, Match 2

Please vote for the playlist you LIKE THE MOST.

Welcome to the second semifinal match of the Interference Retro Island Album Game! In this competition, instead of being stranded on a desert island and seeking the best playlist to enjoy while there, we're heading off to Retro Island to savour the best that the punk/new wave genre of the late 70's and 80's has to offer.

Our second semifinal features the #1 seed from Group 2 against the #2 seed from Group 1, which is LemonMacPhisto and phanan. Below are their playlists.

If you don't know the songs, or wish to hear how each playlist flows, feel free to check out the Desert Island website.

Shit, I like voting for myself... but I think Phanan's got my favorite list apart from Hardy, so we'll see how it goes.

Very tough. I could try & vote strategically, but that's not how I roll. I think I have to vote phanan here.

You know, the more I look at this, the closer it is. I'll vote in a bit. Gotta get dinner ready. Maybe listen to them both again tonight.

I'm wondering if I should just skip the Third Place Match and go straight to the Final.

Thoughts?

OK with me, of course Could be time to put this to bed.

Do previous scores matter at this point?

The third place match would be LMP vs. Khan, but I'm not sure if we'll bother since there were only 8 of us in this, unless people want me to do it.

On Monday morning we will have the final.
