One more day for anyone who hasn't already done so to vote.

I'll be posting the ties for round two sometime tomorrow evening.

This is a pretty unfair matchup, like you're pitting Independence Day against 2001: A Space Odyssey.

I already voted for EJSTNS. I like Murray Street, but it was kinda a cultural shock on the first listen, since the only SY I'd been experienced with at that time were Daydream Nation and Goo. It seemed so...bland, like a sterilized version of Daydream Nation. I told my guitar teacher at the time it sounded too much like Radiohead (disclaimer: at that time, I hadn't heard much Radiohead either, beyond some of Amnesiac). I've since learned to appreciate its relative subtlety and scope, but I just can't call it a favorite.

I think a more even matchup would be EJSTNS vs. Washing Machine-although EJSTNS would probably lose that too, but it might be closer than the 82-26 slaughter that's going on here.

I don't know if you're aware but i never actually chose which albums would go up against one another. I used a random number generator to do it for me, just as knock out contests are decided in sports.
