2021 AMF Tournament of Champions: Round 1, Part 2

Post by Holden »

Hello! Welcome to Round 1 of the 2021 AMF Tournament of Champions! Here are the rules for this game overall, as a refresher:

Each of the 27 competitors submitted one album and ten songs. The ten songs each compete in one of ten rounds, each with a different type of competition. Meanwhile, the albums will be rated (out of ten) as time goes on. After each round, each competitor will receive points based on their performance in the round. At the end of all ten rounds, the points will be totaled from each round and the rating of the album, and a winner will be declared!

This week's rules:
The first round is going to be a standard single-elimination tournament. Unfortunately, we have 27 competitors, so that isn't going to work! We need to bring that down to 16, so I have divided the 27 randomly into 9 groups of 3. This week, you will get the last four groups. Please pick your two favorites from each group. The sixteen highest scorers (based on percentage) will advance. Here they are:

Group 1
Betty Evertt | You're No Good
Portugal. The Man | So American
Tennis | Dreaming

Group 2
David Wise | Stickerbrush Symphony
Ramones | Somebody Put Something In My Drink
Iqbaal Ramadhan | Hello You

Group 3
Modest Mouse | Heart Cooks Brain
Sugar | Hoover Dam
Cage the Elephant | Cigarette Daydream

Group 4
Days n' Daze | My Darling Dopamine
The Jam | Man in the Corner Shop
Sebadoh | Soul and Fire

Playlist


Here is the original David Wise track:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lndBgOr ... =TerraBlue

If any of these are wrong, PM me and I'll fix it.

A reminder, pick your TWO favorite songs from each group!

Next up, the albums! Here is a list of every album: List

However, to make the albums more digestible, I will be 'featuring' one album a week for those who wish to follow along this way. This week's album is:

Image
Soul Asylum| Grave Dancers Union (1992)



Alright, in conclusion:
Chose your favorite two songs from each group of three! You have exactly seven days (January 15th) from the time of this post!

Additionally, rate albums from the list out of ten. You can do this at whatever pace you like, but post your ratings in the most recent thread!


Note: Last week I saw some discussion about comments about songs. You are absolutely allowed to make comments about songs/albums you like! I am chosing not to reveal who's songs and albums are whose (I am also hiding it from myself) since this is a competition, but you can make whatever comments you like! In the first round it likely doesn't matter all too much if you know what each person entered, but it will become more important as frontrunners start appearing. I will reveal the identities of the songs' enterers when the round ends.

Additionally, here are the rankings from last week.
01 | Beach House | Take Care
02 | Death | Politicians In My Eyes
03 | Joan Armatrading | Rosie
03 | Death Cab for Cutie | The Ghosts of Beverly Drive
05 | Steely Dan | Josie
06 | Desire | Don't Call
06 | Shiro Sigasu, featuring Arianne Schreiber | Komm, süsser Tod
06 | Tom Waits | Take It With Me
09 | Ooberman | Shorely Wall
09 | Fabrizio De André | Al ballo mascherato
11 | Madonna | Till Death Do Us Part
12 | Tétard | Envie
12 | Muse | Cave
14 | Fleet Foxes | Jara
15 | Jonathan Coulton | When You Go

Good solid alt rock. I have never listened to the whole album until now.

Jesca Hoop | Memories Are Now: 4

Singer songwriter type albums like this one are not my cup of tea.

Indeed! Each got 14 votes. Only possible because Madzong skipped this group. That was the only person to pass on any group.

Soul Asylum gets a lot 10! Much different (and better, IMO) than the recent Soul Asylum album from Biggest Fan, though I enjoyed that one too. This band always makes me think of my dad, he’s actually recommended this album a couple times in the past.

Not at all, don’t worry! I just was sharing an interesting fact, sorry if you misinterpreted. However, if there is a need for a tiebreaker I may come to you for solving this.

Oh and Jesca Hoop gets a 7.5 for me - it keeps growing on me with every listen. There is more to this album than the usual singer songwriter mellow stuff. It has an edge.

I'm only starting with listening just now, so I'm a little late with this, but the Stickerbrush Symphony on the playlist is a cover of the David Wise composition, with totally different instruments and another tempo. I'm not the nominator of the song, but I do know it from the Donkey Kong games and it's original ambience is far more unique than on the Spotify track. I guess the original nominator would also prefer the original version?

Seamless segue: I also never expected to be discussing Soul Asylum three times in a month, however briefly in my case (having picked Runaway Train as one of my top videos in the recent poll) but some vitals to note while the album's fresh in my memory:

Grave Dancers Union 6 (#15 for 1992)

I predict that 2021 will be the worldwide rediscovery of Soul Asylum. People with political differences will finally bond again over this band. And it all started here!

Soul Asylum - Grave Dancers Union: 7
Not bad at all! Wasn't looking forward to this, but this album is better and more varied than it seems to get credit for. Even though not everything is a masterpiece, there is no filler here either. Someone to Shove was a hit here and there so it seems, but I never heard it before, but it is a stand-out. Very different than what Runaway Train promised. Speaking of that monster hit, now I that I have ignored mainstream radio for some years and return to it after so long, it is actually a better song than I remembered.

The songs:

Group 1
Betty Evertt | You're No Good
Tennis | Dreaming
---------------------------------------------------------------
Portugal. The Man | So American

Dreaming is the discovery of the week for me.

Group 2
David Wise | Stickerbrush Symphony
Iqbaal Ramadhan | Hello You
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ramones | Somebody Put Something In My Drink

Group 3
Modest Mouse | Heart Cooks Brain
Sugar | Hoover Dam
---------------------------------------------------------------
Cage the Elephant | Cigarette Daydream

This group actually contains all three of my least favorite songs of the week.

Group 4
Days n' Daze | My Darling Dopamine
The Jam | Man in the Corner Shop
---------------------------------------------------------------
Sebadoh | Soul and Fire

I would have sworn that Man in the Corner Shop was one of the most famous and acclaimed songs by The Jam. I have know idea what put that thought in my head.

2020 is a good year for Poptisms. So, I threw up Tennis because it sounds like an Indie act.

Group 2
Iqbaal Ramadhan | Hello You
Ramones | Somebody Put Something in My Drink
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Group 3
Cage the Elephant | Cigarette Daydream
Modest Mouse | Heart Cooks Brain
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I swear, from three songs sounds like an Indie song, only two will survive.

Group 4
The Jam | Man in the Corner Shop
Sebadoh | Soul and Fire
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who's care if there are two songs sounds like an Indie song? So, I threw up Days N Daze.

Album
Soul Asylum | Grave Dancers Union: 10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The perfect rate for this studio album because it including their power ballad, "Runaway Train", a Billboard's Hot 100 biggest hit single for Soul Asylum but I like "Runaway Train" but ended cool like their follow-up hit, "Misery", did it too, wishing this version of "Runaway Train" is there on the internet. However, when I'm listening to their frontman, Mike Pirner, it always reminds me of Century's frontman where Century themselves, a French Rock band, are more known for their power ballad, "Lover Why".

Just to make sure, you did give it a ten because you liked the whole album, not just because of the single peaking high on the charts?

I gave this studio album the best rate because it just their awesome breakthrough album. However, personally, I just like "Runaway Train".
