Symphony X Survivor - The Albums - Round 2
« on: September 07, 2017, 10:04:30 PM »
Round 2 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:
Symphony X (Debut) - 12 votes (80%)
Twilight In Olympus - 2 votes (13.3%)
Iconoclast - 1 vote (6.7%)

The debut album has been eliminated.

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

#4.
#5.
#6.

#7.
#8. (currently deciding)

#9. Symphony X



Well, I can't really say that I'm surprised at all with the results of the first round (if anything, the most surprising thing was that someone agreed with me), but after that round there should be a more even competition. I still have my (very high) doubts about I can get Twilight to leave early, but considering I love every other SX album except for it & the debut, pretty much any result other that Twilight would be a tragedy (with divine wings :P) for me. So as unlikely as it may be, I'm sticking with my guns on this one.

Definitly, Twilight In Olympus again. It has not bad songs, but it just didn't catch into my memory just like the other albums.

Gonna have to spin DG and TIO today to see what's what.  I really don't remember TIO being bad enough to rank at the bottom of the list.

Great idea to promote more songs of an album in the finals with respect to the Album Survivor results. I should have done it for the PoS survivor too.

Yeah.... not getting the dislike for TiO.  It's an excellent album.

TDG.

Everything after the debut is brilliant. It's impressive that it's this difficult already to pick an album to eliminate.
