Wow! three major songs took a hit in the top ten, leaving She is My Sin alone at the 6th place.

The top 3 remains unchallenged so far.

Annette has 2 songs in the top 10, Floor only one if we consider Shudder Before the Beautiful tying in a group of songs that go over the 11th position.
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!

Yes, Sagan not in that bottom bracket!  It certainly doesn't belong with those songs.  Being in the bottom in general, fine, it's a bside and it's nothing spectacular but it's certainly not THAT bad to be grouped with the other 0% winners.

Whaaat? it seems like yesterday we just started this as a companion with Metallica's league, and now we're already in "these songs are qualified"  territory!

...even though it's not surprising that this applies to the three songs that are still going on with a perfect (ghost love) score at the top!
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!

After the first qualifications, come the first eliminations, in a turn of events that is not exactly dramatic or unexpected, the bunch of 0 wins songs are all eliminated.

Now the question is: will they eventually catch a win? will the monster trio at the top ever lose or draw a match?

"Thanks" to equal scores we don't have a clear top ten, but I'd say that it's a bit surprising seeing Gethsemane up there with the classics / fan favorites, even though it had a resurgence due to the last tour.

New album territory: 6 songs going strong, two balancing on the edge between qualification and elimination, and two songs that are destined for elimination unless they make exceptional comebacks. Not bad I'd say.

I voted for The Eyes of Sharbat Gula at least 5 times. I think it's a very good instrumental piece. Would love for it to at least get one win.
This first band is Soen very cool swingy jazz fusion kinda stuff.

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with that song, it's a nice companion to the other songs of the album, it's just that for a band like Nightwish, not having vocals is a big handicap, at least for me. But it's not that I think the song sucks, I just find preferring other (sung) songs.

I'm not a fan, at all. I prefer All the Works of Nature Which Adorn the World to compare of these Toumas driven pieces of instrumentation.  I'm typically not a fan at all of these songs, although I think there's a time and place for them.  Just not really on NW albums IMO.  I'm going to be going on vacation to Maine next week and have been thinking these songs might make for good background music on some hikes I'm looking to do.  Time and place IMO.

Wow, a big bunch of songs crosses the finishing line and now nearly 30 songs are qualified!

We have an almost top ten, with 11 songs at the top not terribly surprising, even though I wouldn't have guessed for Gethsemane to be so up there.

There's also one song too many in the last group of 64, which goes over at 65, and I don't know if it's coincidence or a natural predisposition for the underdog that I always find myself rooting for songs from behind coming back, just as I was doing for Metallica and Dream Theater in their respective leagues... definitively I want Crownless to steal Devil's spot for example!
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!

Aaaaand we have a top 10! and over 30 songs qualified.

Chaos and mayhem around the 64th place, lot of songs fightinging for the last remaining slots, of course it's still an open brawl and there will be many other matches for those slots to change.... (meanwile Tribal is almost out which would mark it as the first song from the new album eliminated)
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!

Aaaaand we have it! the first defeat of one of the titans! Ghost Love Score lost to She is My Sin and, thanks to draws from other strong songs, retains the 3rd position leaving Beauty of the Beast and The Poet and the Pendulum alone in the lead!

She is My Sin also belongs to the group of songs that would have swallowed back Ghost Love Score in the second collective spot, wouldn't it be for a draw... and now we have a clear top ten!

On the new album front, How's the Heart is the leading song with 5 defeats (not enough to jeopardize the qualification), while Tribal is officially the first new song eliminated and the instrumental suite is definitively going next save surprises.

There's also a clear cutoff for the qualification and six songs threatening the last three which are, as of now, in.

I don't have strong opinions on those bunch of songs fighting for their lives but I surely hope Crownless will pull through... ironic to see a live staple as Wish I Had an Angel struggling even more behind!

Sure, let's swap them for The Devil & the Deep Dark Ocean, Feel for You, Two for Tragedy and Walking in the Air which are immediately above, fine for me  :D ....even though we need to find a spot for Crownless as well  ;D

Sleeping Sun with its MOTW victory doesn't crack the top 10, but drags Shudder Before the Beautiful away from it, with nothing else changing at the top.

48 songs qualified and total mayhem around the 64th place, a big group of songs occupy those last stops and surely the desperate songs right behind will fight until the end. Go Crownless go!

Also, it's ironic to see "Yours is an Empty Hope" as the last song of those not eliminated, it's a self-fulfilling prophecy about the hopes of the song to pull through  :D

Well that's good, because I'm baffled how Shudder has 18-2-2. It's just such a run of the mill Nightwish song.
This first band is Soen very cool swingy jazz fusion kinda stuff.

I still don't get what the hell is Getshemane doing so up above, but I've accepted that my mild reaction to Oceanborn is an oddity in Nightwish fandom.

I don't think the album sucks or is average, and after all I looooove Stargazers and Sleeping Sun, and also Sacrament of Wilderness is very cool, I just don't connect that much with it.
