The Lonesome Crowded West song elimination: Round 5

Postby Gregg » Mon Aug 31, 2015 5:40 pm

The rules:

1. You are voting for the song you like / listen to the least on the album.
2. You have 48 hours to cast your vote for a song. You can change you vote at any point during those 48 hours.
3. In the event of a tie, there will be a special tie breaker round between those songs over 24 hours. In the event that the tie breaker round ends in a tie, we will just end the round as such.
4. In the final round you are voting for the song you like / listen to the most on the album.

Results:

12. Lounge (Closing Time)
13. Shit Luck
14. Long Distance Drunk
15. Jesus Christ Was An Only Child

Ok I'm really surprised about lounge... That is one of my favorite songs I can't comprehend how it got out so early

Really confused as to why Truckers Atlas is in danger......

Absolutely shocked. Truckers Atlas??? Hopefully it will keep surviving....

Also, curious Gregg, but I think we should do an Ugly Casanova - Sharpen Your Teeth, elimination as well after this right? Isaac crushes that record too, though I know no one else from MM is in it. Just a thought.

The only reason I can think of that could explain why Trucker's Atlas gets so many votes is because it's way too long and repetitive towards the end. It could have been shorten by 3, maybe 4 minutes easily IMO. Do you guys honestly never skip it when it comes to the jam?
I still consider it as one of my favorites and a MM classic.

I'll be honest... Yes, I have voted Trucker's Atlas the last 2 rounds... I do skip the 2nd half... But really it's just that I like all of the other songs more... This is a really strong album...
