Greetings fellow DTFers!

Here's heat #7's results:


1) 64 Porcupine Tree

2) 62 Pink Floyd

3) 55 Opeth

4) 52 Rush


We are at that exciting moment where the votes count more than ever as this is the heat that determines...

WHO IS THE BEST THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



vs.



At some point not too long after the conlusion of this final heat I'll post a wrapup thread to cover some comprehensive rankings and other related tidbits of information relevant to this series.

I'd really like to see this series archived but I realize it may work out a little easier to just archive either this final heat's thread or the wrapup one I'm doing after this and just link all the other threads in the OP. Show this series some love and let it be known if you support the archiving of it and as always thanks a bunch everyone!ijustnoticedanamusingerrorinthethreadtitle

Porcupine Tree is the correct answer.

  • Check out the Zappa Discography thread!
Pink Floyd

Porcupine Tree's great albums:
- Voyage 34
- The Sky Moves Sideways
- Signify
(- In Absentia) = when I'm in the right mood

Pink Floyd's great albums:
- Meddle
- Wish You Were Here
- The Dark Side of the Moon
- Animals
- Atom Heart Mother
(-The Wall)
(- A Momentary Lapse of Reason)
(- The Division Bell) = When I'm in the right mood.


So Floyd, by far.

PT is great, but come on, it's the Floyd.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Pink Floyd.

One of the most epic turn of events ever, seeing Rush get knocked out. (Not that I was happy, but it certainly was unexpected.)

For me PF and PT are very, very close, but it goes to Floyd. It just has too, I really wouldn't be able to forgive myself.

I also support the archiving of the final round (and the wrap up thread). We should do this every year, and then compare DTF's tastes from year to year.

Steven Wilson and Those Other Guys. Floyd (and early PT) is not my kind of music. Too spacey, too stonery.

Rush is the correct answer.

Despite the results of this poll, I STILL say Rush is the best them on this forum.

But alas, I went with Floyd.  I think their discography is solid throughout.  I enjoy PT once in a while, but they have never clicked for me in the way that my list of favorite bands (which includes PF) has.
VOTE IN THE BEATLES SURVIVOR!!!!!

Listen to sirbradford in all things Beatles :P

I went with PT. I like Floyd a lot, but I don't think they are in my top 10 band list, while PT is.

TBH I'm surprised to see that Floyd made it to the finals, but not Opeth or Rush.
