My contrived theme this round centres upon which track from each album has grown on me the most after three listens (or more if I'd heard the album before the tournament). Here goes:

8. Keith Jarrett - The Köln Concert v. 7. Sigur Rós - ( )
5. The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age of the Understatement v. 1. Fiona Apple - When the Pawn...
4. Edan - Beauty and the Beat v. 6. Vince Guaraldi Trio - A Charlie Brown Christmas
2. The Upsetters - Super Ape v. 3. Roy Harper - Bullinamingvase

Growers: Pt. II C | E-Bow | Calm like You | Fast as You Can | Funky Voltron | Christmas Is Coming | Super Ape | One of Those Days in England (Parts 2-10)

I foresaw bigger things for Milton & Lô as well, truly an album cut down before its time :(
