Re: Trust Survivor - Round 9

At last Strict Time is out! (Though Neil's post makes a great case for it!) It's had my vote since the first round. Not that it is a bad song at all, simply that at the beginning it was one of four or five I might have chosen and I've kept with it. As other more wonderful songs (at least in my opini...

Re: Trust Survivor - Round 7

Something odd going on! The link in round 6 takes you to the round 5 poll. With only 30 votes in round 6 I suspect more than 28 voters were disenfranchised!

Poll link is to Round 5.

Looking at the casualties so far I do wonder if I'm listening to the same album!

Re: Trust Survivor - Round 2

Thanks kosi for turning off the current votes situation, it makes it more interesting for me, and removes any unwittingly suggestion to what the jury will choose in the following round. I consider Trust as one of EC's most even albums, so it'll get harder to vote off tracks earlier than usual. Still...

Re: Elvis Costello Survivor - Which album do you want to do next?

I'm not too bothered about what is next, but I'd prefer if it didn't end on Goodbye Cruel World.

Re: Armed Forces Survivor - Round 4

This looks like a repeat from round 3? Chemistry Class seems to have gone? Shame, but losing the first 5 or 6 tracks on this one is nowhere near the same pain as Imperial Bedroom or This Year’s Model, for instance. Aha! Thank you, I was confused, I didn't expect Chemistry Class to go this early, it...

No, that's not my style! For me this is an interesting bit of fun that has caused me to listen to each LP several times with different ears as the contest develops.

Sad to see that there was a noticeable decrease in the number of votes cast as Strawpoll doesn't allow multiple votes to be cast. :(

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor - Results

Thanks for running this Kosi. As with previous rounds it has provided the opportunity (as if anyone on this forum should need it) to listen anew to the LP.

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 12)

I'm one of those who voted Alison out. My choices as the rounds have progressed have been increasingly decided by asking myself 'Is the MAIT version better than the song is usually when played live?' Songs such as Alison, great as it is on the LP, have generally been superior live -incrementally pol...

Re: My Aim Is True Survivor (Round 2)

Are we agreed that Detectives should be included in this? It certainly alters the feeling of the album compared to the “original” Stiff issue in August 1977 ! If this was a 'Vote for your favourite' type of poll comp I'd agree wholeheartedly. However, in this 'least favourite' scenario (which maybe...

The lying.

Two and an half hours, set much the same as other nights. Voice ropey for the first few songs before a sip of the magic juice and got into gear on Tokyo Storm Warning. Many highlights, but Detectives was sublime! American without Tears, Whisper to a scream, all the Get Happy track and PL&U all f...
