Re: Best of the B-Sides: Round 1 Week 8

The Illinois choice makes me notably sad because I would have taken both The Predatory Wasp and Night Zombies over everything in this contest except for New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down, while Man of Metropolis can't even win its first match. I think it's actually my least favorite o...

Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 7 - Round 1.2

Oh god, what a tough match up. Both albums are truly great, and the Little rabbits is probably my favorite discovery in the game so far. There are some slightly weak parts (very rare, though), but the good moments are so good. Songs like Karen and Bad Days are really good. It's like a fusion of The...

I feel like my statement "if greatness can be argued it is not subjective" is being taken a little out of context here.
