^ They were number one and number two in their respective groups in the first round. Which group they ended up in in the first round was completely random.

Anyway, I'll go for the progressive hair metal concept album over the proto post rock album today.

Oh dear, Mindcrime already seems to be losing badly after one day of polling.
That is an undeserved fate. Seeing the class of Talk Talk, I give Geoff Tate c.s. some voting support.

I think Talk Talk is one of the few that has a semi realistic shot at breaking the SWilson v. PT modern final.  SC3 might have a shot.  PT has to go through both. SWilson has clear sailing up there in the top of the bracket. Perhaps Kid A gives it a battle.

Mindcrime is a great album but I have to say it has dated fairly badly.  Spirit of Eden on the other hand.......

Two good albums, went with Mindcrime since it's apparent underdog.

Once of the biggest things I learned since joining PA was that Talk Talk was more than just another new wave synthpop thing.

Queensryche were one of the last of the non-extreme metal acts I was into before I nose-dived into death metal. Shame that they've been going out of their way in trying to ruin their legacy (which really wasn't all that long actually) for quite a while now.
