ELVIS CUP FINAL!! Get Happy!! V ImpBed

Postby Jackson Doofster » Wed Oct 08, 2003 1:09 pm

Here's the big one. These 2 are my favourite EC albums and so I feel quite smug. Having said that, I have to think very carefully which will get the vote. :? :?

I voted for Imperial Bedroom. Love "Get Happy" but IB was more ambitious and lived up to those ambitions. Still, GH has always been a darkhorse favorite for EC's best, so an upset is still possible -- especially since I'm only the second person's who's voted! (Don't wanna act like CNN and call this one early!)

If I were to listen to only one album before I got the chair...it'd be Imperial Bedroom.

This is going to take some thinking.... my first instinct is to vote for Imperial Bedroom simply because of the line "You drink yourself insensitive and hate yourself in the morning." But Get Happy!! is like the essential good time album.

In many ways I guess the two albums are polar opposites.

I'm thinking Get Happy!! but I'm going to have to give them each a good listen back to back before I decide.

My vote is for "Get Happy" today...

Of course, I may change my mind by tomorrow...

Guess it depends on your current mood/state of mind.

In the end I went with Imperial Bedroom. I think I have more of an emotional attatchment with it than I do with Get Happy!!, though I can't imagine living without either of them.

Imperial Bedroom, not just because I want to go for the one that's winning.

2 Days to vote.

It's looking like Imperial Bedroom is the greatest Elvis Album.
