And how about when I changed the poll title and After Crying almost leaves Porcupine Tree out of the competition? That was fun. Some people wanted to incinerate me.

Remember the Dave Meros scandal? lol LOL

Oh I had forgotten about the Meros bit.  That was one of the funner long running series of polls.  I think people are still trying to capture some of the mystique of the tournament.  It was a very good year . . .

Riverside for me.  It was a close contest, as I love both bands, but Riverside win it with their edgier sound.

Could you name one single case in which a "raping" is deserved?

I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

It's definitely been interesting, thanks Morningrise.



But I hope you all do realize that for any poll that you open, Gandalff opens five. Stern Smile

Thank you. Thumbs Up
 
Next year I'll probably do another one of these. I have a couple of interesting ideas around my head.

Over a year ago I went to a concert in another city, and I took I bus some guy here usually rents for going to the concerts. He usually puts some videos on the but during the journey, and this time he did put a concert from Porcupine Tree, and then one from Riverside. The first one bored me quiet a bit, Riverside's intrigued me and I thought I should get somethin from them... sadly I still haven't. However, some time ago I checked a CD from Pocupine Tree on You Tube and did find it very good too, so I guess I will have to get some music from both of them when I can. Of course, right now I guess the easiest to find will be Steven Wilson's latest album, so I guess that will be the first one I'll get.

Well in a case to see which artist you like more, i'd first determine if you like them both. The time to determine that is personal. Whether you fall in love with a band after 1 song or after hearing their entire output is up to you.

But to vote against a band you haven't heard at all isn't fair or wise.

How much of a band's discography have people listened to before they make such judgements?
I think it's fair to say that one should have heard pretty much everything... but what's the general norm, something like "At least 3 albums"?

... thinking about, Riverside's discography is pretty near covered once you've listened to "at least 3 albums"

They completely destroyed all of their opponents in this tournament by a large margin.

So you're voting for them because they're winning?

LOLNo I voted for PT because I prefer them much more than Riverside.
