1. Sigur Rós - ( )
This first match is by far the more difficult for me. Two excellent album who deserve to win this game I think. I choose Sigur Rós, but it's heartbreaking.
2. Milton Nascimento & Lo Borges - Clube da Esquina
3. Brand New - Deja Entendu

Yes, and it's been several days now. Hope it's a temporary server issue...

One to file in the slim folder marked 'reassuring but frustrating', it looks like it's a problem with the BM website as a whole :angry-banghead:

Only this game can make me listen to a Christmas album in July. It manages to still come on top too, even though personal favorite When the Pawn is part of the line-up too.

I'm sorry to vote against Madness. All the other picks were obvious to me.
