Tournament 1: Top 32 Albums of All Time, Round 1, Part 1

Post by Holden » Fri Dec 13, 2019 2:49 am

Hey! I recently tried to start doing a tournament style competition in the Polls area, but have come to the realization that that is not really the best place to do it! So I’m gonna post it here for a second attempt. The first tournament will be simply the top thirty two albums. Please comment your winner in each of the eight matchups below, each ballot will count as a point towards a given album. You will have until midnight next Thursday, or December 19.
Match-ups
1. Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys vs. Who’s Next by The Who
2. Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen vs. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie
3. Exile on Main St. by The Rolling Stones vs. Marquee Moon by Television
4. Thriller by Michael Jackson vs. OK Computer by Radiohead
5. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles vs. Led Zeppelin IV by Led Zeppelin
6. Blood on the Tracks by Bob Dylan vs. Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols by Sex Pistols
7. The Beatles [White Album] byThe Beatles vs. Abbey Road by The Beatles
8. Sign o’ the Times by Prince vs. The Velvet Underground & Nico by The Velvet Underground & Nico

And now my own personal answers (and an example format for yours!)

1. Pet Sounds
2. Born to Run
3. Marquee Moon
4. OK Computer
5. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
6. Blood on the Tracks
7. Abbey Road
8. The Velvet Underground & Nico

Okay, the time to answer the polls is fast approaching! I'm gonna go to bed and wish to post this before then, so I will update it should anyone sneak their results in the last thirty-five minutes. So here are the results from the first part of Round 1:
1. Pet Sounds vs. Who's Next, 20-8
2. Born to Run vs. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, 12-13
3. Exile on Main St. vs. Marquee Moon, 12-16
4. Thriller vs. OK Computer, 7-20
5. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band vs. Led Zeppelin IV, 14-12
6. Blood on the Tracks vs. Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, 15-9
7. The Beatles vs. Abbey Road, 9-19
8. Sign o' the Times vs. The Velvet Underground & Nico, 9-19
So moving on is Pet Sounds, Ziggy Stardust, Marquee Moon (upset), OK Computer, Sgt. Pepper's, Blood on the Tracks (upset), Abbey Road (upset), and The Velvet Underground & Nico! After the other half of Round 1 finishes I'll post Round 2!
