So now we start the second round with the winners & runners up from round 1. There are 6 groups with the winners and top 2 runners up going to the quarter finals. No winner and runner up from the first round are in the same group in the second round.

Pick your favorite.

Altthough I was slightly dissapointed by their latest outing, Kayo Dot deserve credit for being true artists carving out a path of their own... some of the music they've created feels like it wasn't there before they made it. Now how often can you say that about a contemporary progressive rock band? Almost never. Quite a feat. Their music is often gripping and cathartic as well... well to me it is.

Gonna have to go with This Heat. Kayo Dot is not far behind, but I find them less consistent.

This Heat, then Thinking Plague a bit behind, then Kayo Dot a ways behind (their music is always interesting but rarely connects emotionally on the long term), then lastly Miriodor.

Kayo Dot are leading but they hit me least of that bunch. Miriodor are great but can't quite compete with This Heat and Thinking Plague, but between these two it's tough. Today I pick This Heat somewhat unfairly taking into account the strength of Camberwell Now and Charles Hayward's solo work - on another day it may have been the Plague.

I like music by all four very much. Miriodor was the first post classic Prog band that I got into (I had tried some others such as Spock's Beard and The Flower Kings before that which left me completely cold), but then found 3rd Warning, then other Miriodor albums and U Totem which blew me away. At the time, my favourite band was Gentle Giant and Miriodor seemed to scratch a similar itch. For me it's ultimately between Thinking Plague and This Heat nowadays. I was tempted to vote for This Heat, but I'm going to vote for Thinking Plague. I didn't like In Extremis at all when I got it, which was another early foray into trying to modernise my tastes, but I do like the earlier albums very much (and I like A History of Madness). With Kayo Dot, I love Blue Lambency Downward, but not all of their albums quite hit the mark for me.

I thought this group would be brutally tight.

I was gonna vote This Heat then the pan slipped down over my eyes at the crucial moment and I clicked on Kayo Dot.
