1. Talk Talk - The Colour of Spring vs. Joni Mitchell - Ladies of the Canyon
Life's what you make it. Stardust and golden, the colour of spring in Laurel Canyon. Getting ourselves back to the garden.

2. Champion Jack Dupree - Blues from the Gutter vs. J.J. Cale - Naturally
The dense atmosphere of the barrelhouses in New Orleans or the breezy sounds of Tulsa? Mmm, call me the breeze.

3. Pere Ubu - Datapanik in the Year Zero vs. Rodriguez - Cold Fact
Post punk in the year zero (before punk). But Sugar Man brings back all those colors to my dreams. That's the cold fact.

4. Nina Simone - Pastel Blues vs. Exuma - Exuma
Exuma got fire and brimstone coming out of his mouth. But Nina got blood on the leaves. Where you gonna run to?

Ooh, exciting. That vote could very well decide the winner of this entire tournament. Not to put any pressure on the voter or anything.

Yes

I will listen to "Pastel Blues" and "Exuma" later during the week if no one else breaks the tie before me. I have already heard both, but didn't vote because as they are close.
