    Posted: October 29 2011 at 12:27
Welcome to another round of the Post 70's World Cup!
 
For this one and only occasion I've decided to change the title of the poll.
 
I figured out that naming it Porcupine Tree vs. After Crying would attract lots of PT fanboys who might not even know there's a band called After Crying, and yet vote for their much beloved band.
 
In order to at least try to avoid in part this unfair situation, with this change of title I'm trying to narrow the voters into:
 
- Those who know After Crying
 
and,
 
- Those who without knowing them were curious enough to see what this poll was about
 
Besides, those who are familiar with the hungarian band are much likely to have heard Porcupine Tree, so I don't think this is unfair for Steven Wilson's band.
 
Anyway, I still think PT will take over this poll easily, nevermind the way it was set.
 
I know I might get a lot of s**t for this, but what the hell, let's spice up things a little bit.
 
World Cup so far:
 
 
Deadline for this poll: November 1st

Plenty members unfamiliar with one of the two bands were reasonable enough to say that they will not vote. Up to now, many (if not all) of the bands advanced based on the scoreline on top, without any means of telling who were all the ones voting, what they voted, why they voted that or how fair their reasoning was, so I don't see why bother now.

Porcupine Tree for me. After Crying's first two albums are excellent but PT is one of my all time favs.

I'd say all of them, but I have a little preference for De Profundis and Megalazzottag. Also Overnight Music is a good choice.

Tough one. I like both bands, but I'll give the edge to Porcupine Tree for the variety of styles in their whole catalogue.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Wow. Interesting results so far. Perhaps this is skewing the poll in favor of AC?

Also, no vote from me. I don't know AC.

Yea i'm not sure if this was such a great idea.

I understand completely where Morningrise is coming from though.

I love both band's music, though quite different (although both developed and changed their sound throughout the years).
I'll give my vote to After Crying.

I agree. I would also toss a vote to their live album Struggle For Life which is wonderful as well. (And works as a good compliation of AC, at least of their middle/late period)

Yeah, I think this is a bit unfair. I understand why Morningrise did this, but I think it's making it even more unfair than if it was normal.

Also, for the record, I think it's annoying how PT monopolizes so many polls.

To me this is just wrong,it's tainted the whole process.
Okay this is from a PT fanboy sure but this isn't fair at all.

I love AC, but PT should probably win, really. No vote.

Definitely worded the wrong way. It should've said PT vs. After Crying like the other posts. People don't even know this is part of the same post 70's championship

I don't really mind thid decision, if Porcupine Tree falls out of the polls, everything would become so much more interesting, however, it might end up with Dream Theater just walking throught the rest of the matches. I don't really mind PT or DT winning this, but it would be far more interesting if they didn't make it to the finals.

This is really thankless work, a creating of polls, isn't it? If Morningrise would make a poll named "Porcupine Tree vs. After Crying", the winner would be quite obvious but many complainers would advert to unfair contest. In this case, there is a bunch of another complainers who see a kind of favouritism behind it. So, what to choose?Confused
