Happy Birthday to Kate Bush, 62 today! I suspect I won't be invited to her party though:

7. Cocteau Twins - Treasure (2nd of 2 albums I've heard by the artist) v. 8. Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak (7/8 solo albums)
6. Kate Bush - The Sensual World (3/3) v. 1. Rick James - Street Songs (1/2)
4. Titus Andronicus - The Airing of Grievances (2/2) v. 5. Dinosaur Jr. - Farm (3/3)
3. Wayne Shorter - EMANON (2/2) v. 2. Burkhard Dallwitz - The Truman Show OST (1/2)
I just wanna live large and remain though...

8. Kanye West - 808s And Heartbreak vs. 2. Cocteau Twins - Treasure
6. Rick James - Street Songs vs. 1. Kate Bush - The Sensual World
7. Titus Andronicus - The Airing of Grievances vs. 5. Dinosaur Jr - Farm
4. Wayne Shorter - EMANON vs. 3. Burkhard Dallwitz - The Truman Show

The last three weeks the first match-up was always the toughest. This week it is one of the easiest of all time. The last one on the other hand is almost a tie. Also, despite not voting for it and landing only at spot #7 I enjoyed The Airing of Grievances much more than in the previous round.
