If you believe our bracketmaker predictions, the first matchup could decide who the eventual winner is (I personally think an album in one of the other matches this week will pull off the victory, but I might be biased because it's also my nomination).

1. Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness vs. Janelle Monáe - The ArchAndroid
2. Coil - Horse Rotorvator vs. Blondie - Eat to the Beat
3. Everything but the Girl - Amplified Heart vs. Depeche Mode - Songs Of Faith And Devotion
4. Rodriguez - Cold Fact vs. The Shins - Port Of Morrow

I hate to vote against Julia Holter, but here you go.
Eat to the Beat has become something of a grower for me, but sadly it's still up against one of the best remaining albums.
