Symphony X Survivor - The Albums - Round 6
« on: September 13, 2017, 01:31:12 AM »
Round 6 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:
V: The New Mythology Suite - 6 votes (42.9%)
Paradise Lost - 8 votes (57.1%)

Paradise Lost has been eliminated.

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

#4. (currently deciding)
#5. Paradise Lost
#6. The Damnation Game

#7. Twilight In Olympus
#8. Iconoclast

#9. Symphony X



Paradise Lost is finally out. Actually I'm not too happy about that, but some people were voting on it since round 3 so I felt the wording was appropriate. Regardless, even though I think Paradise Lost is the better album, I'm also more comfortable with it going out early compared to V (if that makes any sense). (ranking spoilers ahead) For this round, since V is my 3rd favourite SX album & PL was my 2nd. So aside from my top slot, the I could vote for either The Odyssey or Underworld to save it (since it'll probably be in jeopardy again like it was last round). I've most rounds have been pretty even votes between these two (1-2 votes usually), but I know that Silent Cody has been voting for The Odyssey, & since he's a regular poster 'round here, I feel like I might have more chance to save V with The Odyssey than with Underworld (again, given Underworld's huge praises from this forum). While I'll take The Odyssey over Underworld any day of the freakin' year, I think it's just a lost cause trying to vote it out, since it's probably going to end up in the top 2 anyway. So, against my own (probably wrong) opinion, I'm going to switch tactics.

Underworld

It was a progress after two average albums, but still not that interesting.

I am nothing short of disgusted by what I see here.  :tdwn
