Vapor Trails's Final Round's Results:

Vapor Trail 5 (35.7%)

01. Vapor Trail
02. One Little Victory
03. Freeze (Part IV of "Fear")
04. Peaceable Kingdom
05. Secret Touch

07. Earthshine
08. Ghost Rider
09. Out Of The Cradle
10. Sweet Miracle
      Nocturne
12. The Stars Look Down
13. How It Is

What an unsually different final ranking! This was a wild survivor, and looking at the 2016 results, you can really tell just how different things have changed for this one!

01. Secret Touch
      Earthshine
03. One Little Victory
04. Ghost Rider
05. Peaceable Kingdom
06. Vapor Trail
07. Freeze (Part IV of "Fear")
08. Ceiling Unlimited
09. How It Is
10. Nocturne
11. Out Of The Cradle
12. Sweet Miracle
13. The Stars Look Down

Vapor Trail rose from 6th to 1st, while both Secret Touch and Earthshine dropped at least four places each. Other than Nocturne, not one song stayed in the same place.

Snakes & Arrows's Final Round's Results:
Armor & Sword 4 (33.3%)
The Main Monkey Business 8 (66.7%)

01. Armor & Sword
02. The Main Monkey Business
03. Far Cry
04. Malignant Narcissism
05. Spindrift
06. Workin' Them Angels
07. Hope
08. Faithless
09. The Way The Wind Blows
10. Bravest Face
11. The Larger Bowl
      We Hold On
13. Good News First

This has been an interesting run, but I think the top five  or six mostly define what most fans see as the best songs on the album. For comparison, here are the results from 2016:

Snakes & Arrows
01. Armor And Sword
02. Far Cry
03. The Main Monkey Business
04. The Way The Wind Blows
05. Malignant Narcissism
06. Workin' Them Angels
      Bravest Face
08. The Larger Bowl
09. We Hold On
10. Spindrift
11. Good News First
      Hope
13. Faithless

The top 3 remained the same, with A&S still holding onto the top spot. Fourth through last place definitely had a lot of shake-ups, though!

Clockwork Angels's Final Round's Results:
Caravan 12 (85.7%)
Clockwork Angels 9 (56.3%)
The Garden 7 (43.8%)

01. The Garden
02. Clockwork Angels
03. Caravan
04. BU2B
05. Headlong Flight
06. The Wreckers
07. The Anarchist
08. Halo Effect
09. Carnies
10. Wish Them Well
11. Seven Cities Of Gold
12. BU2B2

The title track places second, leaving the band's studio swansong to place first, but both move on to the finals! For comparison, here are the results from the 2016 Survivor:

01. The Garden
02. Headlong Flight
03. Clockwork Angels
04. Caravan
05. The Wreckers
06. The Anarchist
07. BU2B
08. Carnies
09. Halo Effect
10. Seven Cities Of Gold
11. Wish Them Well
12. BU2B2

The bottom five largely remained the same, while 2nd to 7th place all had some shuffling. Interesting to note how Headlong Flight had dropped from 2nd to 5th since 2016, while BU2B moved up from 7th to 4th.

As we move forward through Consolation Rounds, I'll be finishing The Instrumentals, then probably doing The Studio Albums next!

Just an update to the Survivor as a whole, if it wasn't seen in the final round of the Studio Albums survivor, I'll be doing the Live Albums next, which will include the following:
All The World's A Stage
Exit...Stage Left
Grace Under Pressure Tour
A Show Of Hands
Different Stages
Rush In Rio
R30: 30th Anniversary World Tour
Snakes & Arrows Live
Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland
Clockwork Angels Tour
R40 Live

Since many of these were also live videos, I won't make any restrictions on whether or not you make your vote based on the audio album only, or if you include the video in part of your decision-making process. I'm sure many of us have watched the videos just as much as we've spun the CDs, so feel free to use both when explaining your votes!

The first round for the live albums will go up on Monday the 3rd!
