Symphony X Survivor - The Albums - Round 1
« on: September 06, 2017, 07:31:18 PM »
Round 1 of the Symphony X album survivor. In this division of the survivor, each of the albums will be eliminated in each round & their final ranking will determine how many songs from that album will go on to the finals (the songs themselves being determined by the individual album survivors). 1st place album gets 5 songs in the finals, 2nd & 3rd get 4, 4th 5th & 6th get 3, 7th & 8th get 2, 9th gets 1. One extra song from each album will go on to consolations, where the top two winners of that survivor get a second chance to go into the finals. For this round, vote for the album you want the least amount of songs in the finals from. If you don't care about voting &/or haven't heard all of the albums but still want to know the current results, select "(see results without voting)". You cannot see the results otherwise & once you have voted, you cannot change your vote. Round lasts 24 hours.





Results last round:
N/A

Current rankings:
#1.
#2.
#3.

#4.
#5.
#6.

#7.
#8.

#9. (currently deciding)



So the survivor begins. I suspect that this round will be pretty one-sided, as the general consensus is pretty strong against the debut, but I personally think it has plenty of awesome moments & is just brought down by an amateur production. So instead, I'll start out the survivor with a good ol' controversial opinion on which album I think was a major step back in terms of songwriting & only a slight increase in range of styles at the expense of being (in my honest opinion) a pretty boring listen from beginning to end with only a few awesome tracks to salvage from it. I imagine I'll be voting for this for a while, but that doesn't really change what I think about it.

Yep, Twilight In Olympus. Self-titled has got some shiny moments though, but the vocals making me sick just a little bit. Anyway, I found nothing memorable on Olympus, so here's my pick.
