Yes Survivor - Home Thread - Announcement, Rules & Results
« on: April 15, 2016, 01:24:43 AM »

The DTF Yes survivor, as decided by the poll, will begin on April 22nd (one week from now).

It will begin with an albums round to decide how many songs from each album will get into the finals. 1st & 2nd place will have every song go to the finals, 3rd & 4th will have 90%, 5th & 6th will have 80%, etc. One extra song from every album (except 1st & 2nd obviously) will go to consolations, where the best will go on to have a chance at the finals. The last-place album will only have a song go to consolations, not finals.

Then the albums' survivors will begin with the following albums: Yes (self-titled), Time & A Word, The Yes Album, Fragile, Close To The Edge, Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Going For The One, Tormato, Drama, 90125, Big Generator, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, Union, Talk, Open Your Eyes, The Ladder, Keystudio, Magnification, Fly From Here, & Heaven & Earth. If any of these titles sound unfamiliar to you, you may want to relisten to those albums in advance.



I will be participating in every round & ties will be broken by removing my own vote if it's part of the tie or changing my vote to an album that's in the tie if it isn't.

Rounds will be held every day, but will cycle between two albums so each round will last two days.
(e.g. 28/5-30/5 - The Yes Album - Round 1
29/5-31/5 - Fragile - Round 1
30/5-01/6 - The Yes Album Round 2, etc.)
The album survivors, consolations & finals however, will only last 24 hours per round.

All results will be posted in this thread.



See you on April 22nd!  :tup

Every song in the finals? What's even the point of holding survivors for those albums then?

Not familiar enough with Yes to take part in this, but the idea of balancing how many songs go to the finals based on how well the album is liked is wicked! Maybe the *whole* winning album in the finals is a bit extreme, but I like the concept... in a DT survivor wouldn't we all send Images and Words' 8 songs to the finals anyway?
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

When you consider that the winning album will more likely than not be Close to the Edge it makes a bit more sense, since that's only three songs you're sending to the finals automatically.

I won't be in on the album survivor, but I'll vote at times on the individual album survivors when I have the album in question.

I don't generally participate much in survivors; I forget about them and the taste of the majority often tends to piss me off. This is an interesting format, though. I like the concept. I think it'll lead to too many songs in the finals, but that's just me.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Just came up with an idea. If anyone thinks they might forget to vote, I may be able to manually notify you through PM. If you want me to do this, just tell me which albums you want to be notified for. You can cancel anytime.

All in all not a bad ranking, I would rank the top three accordingly. But I would put the Rabin records (especially Talk) and the ABWH record higher.
Must've been Kwyji sending all the wrong songs.   ;D

That's one good looking top 10. I wish Magnification was at #10, though. I think The Ladder is a bit too low, too.
