Of course, what I just wrote would only be a problem if we did an exact carbon-copy of that system. We could do as you said, Axver, and take the top two from a couple of the higher-ranked albums, but it wouldn't be exactly the same.

LM, based on that poll result, why not:

Presence, Out Door, Coda: 1 song
I, II: 2 songs
III, Graffiti: 3 songs
Houses, IV: 4 songs

Hell, you could even just make it:

3 albums: 1 song
I, II, III, Graffiti: 2 songs
Houses, IV: 3 songs

That sounds pretty good to me. As Phanan has been saying, it's not necessary, but it would certainly work.

That's a long final round if done that way.

It doesn't matter to me, but I don't think it's needed, unless you want to do it more for making it go by quicker.

Two songs for a double album? That wouldn't make sense if done that way.

8 + 6 + 4 + 3 = 21

or, alternatively, based on:

6 + 8 + 3 = 17, which doesn't sound so bad to me.

I say two tracks each from I through In Through the Out Door and one from Coda (since it's mostly outtakes), plus two non-album tracks.

Do it.

Only two from Physical Graffiti? No way.

Okay increase it to 3 just cos it's a double album and make it a round 18 song final! Problem solved.

Or even 5 and make it 20. although that would be too many from PG.. imo.

Seems like it should have four if the others around it have 2.

Still a long final, though.

We should have a rarity in there, I think. Make it 4 from PG and we'll have an even 20 song final.
