14.   Octavarium defeats The Walking Shadow 33-1

Okay who is the one person that voted for The Walking Shadow?!

 :hat

I've never been a fan of 8V.  Call me crazy.

So it was a legitimate vote? I'm good with that. Would rather someone prefer The Walking Shadow to 8VM then to learn that someone messing with the polls for no good reason.

Yep.  Legit vote.
Less isn't more when it's all that you know.

Three songs from the latest album already in the lead, not bad for d/t!

No real suprises in the first group but it's nice to see Our New World and The Path that Divides there... also I'd say no major headscratchers in the songs with 2 defeats.
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!

Little idea for a fun sweepstakes mini-competition: How many songs from The Astonishing do you think (please note that) will get into the top 64? We currently have eight. (Hell's Kitchen is currently in the 64th position in this list as it stands.)

I'm gonna guess...six.

Ravenskill and A New Beginning have most chances I'd say.

The Enemy Inside and The Killing Hand should be higher I'd say...

I don't remember the match ups, but "The Killing Hand," "Only a Matter of Time," and "Ytse Jam" being 0-2 is quite a surprise to me.


(Hell's Kitchen is currently in the 64th position in this list as it stands.)

"Hell's Kitchen" is currently tied with 60 other songs for 46th place

Three songs off d/t continue to be in the lead!

Pity that Speak to Me and Raise the Knife can't get any but I assume their status as almost forgotten songs works against them. And also Astonishing (the song) getting always defeating, woe!

EDIT: Didn't notice that Build Me Up, Break Me Down is in the lead. Positively surprised since I guess I'm in the minority in appreciating as well the simpler side of DT. Or probably it was just up against Raw Dog and Another Won  :lol

I think the vast majority of folks on these boards know the songs pretty well.  I think their 0-3 record is more an indication that they're not very good songs -- especially since, for the most part, they didn't exactly have difficult matchups.  RTK lost to Pale Blue Dot, which seems to be high on most folks lists of favorites from DOT, but it also lost to not-very-highly-regarded songs like Disappear and The Shattered Fortress.  Speak to Me couldn't even beat The Great Debate or A Life Left Behind, and its other loss was to Erotomania.

You went the NFL route for tiebreakers. I like it.

Absolutely. I think it's the most fair way to go.

Pity that Speak to Me and Raise the Knife can't get any but I assume their status as almost forgotten songs works against them.

I think the vast majority of folks on these boards know the songs pretty well.  I think their 0-3 record is more an indication that they're not very good songs -- especially since, for the most part, they didn't exactly have difficult matchups.  RTK lost to Pale Blue Dot, which seems to be high on most folks lists of favorites from DOT, but it also lost to not-very-highly-regarded songs like Disappear and The Shattered Fortress.  Speak to Me couldn't even beat The Great Debate or A Life Left Behind, and its other loss was to Erotomania.

I always thought RTK was held in very high regard. 

In fact, I distinctly remember many people saying when they heard it...."This should have made it onto FII instead of Lines in the Sand"

Than the pride that divides when a colorful rag is unfurled." - Neil Peart

Even though Lines in the sand is considered a classic by many, I would agree with that. But then again, I would actually exchange plenty of FII songs for the ones that can only be heard in the demos.

I'll see the silliness of my question once I'll have it answered I'm sure, but.... why Lie and The Mirror are on their own in a 4-0-1 category? if they won 4 matches and lost 1, shouldn't they belong together with the bunch of songs that come immediately after?
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!

"4-0-1" means 4 wins, zero losses and 1 tie.  The Mirror tied with Surrounded during week 4, and Lie tied with Caught in a Web during week 3.  Neither song has lost yet.

Ah, ok, thanks. I assumed in my head a wins - draws - losses order, so I couldn't figure out why the draw was marked 0.
