Nah, Affinity should've won the three matches.. Is the only album that's clearly better than the rest.. I can hardly choose my favorite or least favorite between the other three..

tbh out of all haken's albums it has the weakest "best" song imo (that song being bound by gravity)

I'd swap The Mountain and Aquarius, but okay. Close enough, I guess.

The only thing stopping it from being the weakest best song is that it's not the best song. That would be 1985. Or The Architect. Or Initiate. Or The Endless Knot.

The best three songs on Affinity are better than every song from Aquarius of Visions

Agreed.. And those would be Initiate, TEK and The Architect (this one's the best though)..

All of them in the Consolation tournament? Surely that's the point of the Consolation tournament. The tournament of meh songs*.

(* Not necessarily my opinion.)

Anyway, it's a shame in a way that it had to end with a tie.

Well it's either that or affinity.exe, so it's not a contest really.
