Acclaimed Music Madness: Round 2A

Post by Jeff » Sun Nov 30, 2014 4:18 pm

After one week's worth of voting we are ready to begin the second round of the Acclaimed Music Madness tournament. The first half of Round 2 features the London and Lagos regions. This poll closes around 11pm EST (4am GMT) Wednesday night (Thursday morning for GMT).

For each matchup, indicate which artist you prefer and then assign that artist a score between one and three using the following scale:
1 - you feel the same about both artists, but have a slight preference for one or the other (e.g., you like both artists but prefer artist A over artist B).
2 - you clearly prefer one artist over the other, but not by a vast margin (e.g., you like one artist and are indifferent to the other).
3 - you like/love one artist and dislike/hate the other.

Please remember to have at least a passing familiarity (i.e., listen to a couple of their songs) with each artist. To accommodate this, I have prepared three-song playlists for each artist which can be accessed via the link at the bottom of the post.

Matchups:
London Region
1) The Beatles
9) Jimi Hendrix

5) Kraftwerk
4) Bruce Springsteen

6) Duke Ellington
3) Madonna

10) Serge Gainsbourg
2) Miles Davis


Lagos Region
1) Prince
9) Aretha Franklin

5) Frank Sinatra
4) Beastie Boys

11) The Velvet Underground
14) Fela Kuti

7) Neil Young
2) Led Zeppelin

Results will be posted in the Acclaimed Music Madness results thread (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2192).

I was worried last time that the Beastie Boys would lose with more votes in their favor than their opponent because they receive more hate... seems they might lose "regularly" this time at least.

Sounds fun! I'm a little confused about the scale, though. For example, I like Kraftwerk a LOT more than Bruce Springsteen. The margin is insurmountable, so a score of 2 seems to small. However, I don't hate Bruce at all, which seems to mean a score of 3 is inappropriate. I'll put in half scores where I feel I'm on the border and will edit based on your opinion of how I should score them. :)

Matchups:
London Region
1) The Beatles
9) Jimi Hendrix: 3

5) Kraftwerk: 2.5 (I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kraftwerk and am generally indifferent to Bruce. Happy for you to go with either 2 or 3 based on this, but most comfortable with 2.5)
4) Bruce Springsteen

6) Duke Ellington
3) Madonna: 2 (Madonna is in my top 5 ever, but I like Duke well enough.)

10) Serge Gainsbourg
2) Miles Davis: 1


Lagos Region
1) Prince: 3 (no surprise here)
9) Aretha Franklin

5) Frank Sinatra
4) Beastie Boys: 3 (really can't stand Frank)

11) The Velvet Underground: 2 (I love VU and merely like Fela)
14) Fela Kuti

7) Neil Young: 1 (I loathe Zep and am indifferent to Neil on the whole).
2) Led Zeppelin

Too bad I missed the first round entirely; this game is fun!

1) The Beatles
9) Jimi Hendrix: 1 (Not a fan of either, but Jimi edges it out just barely)

5) Kraftwerk
4) Bruce Springsteen: 2 (I really like Kraftwerk, but Bruce is sitting comfortably at #3 on my artist list)

6) Duke Ellington: 1 (Neither of these is in my top 100, but Duke might have a shot some day)
3) Madonna

10) Serge Gainsbourg
2) Miles Davis: 2 (Big, big fan of Miles and my appreciation of Serge is too 'theoretical', if that makes sense)

1) Prince: 2 (Aretha is great (#84), but Prince is greater (#11))
9) Aretha Franklin

5) Frank Sinatra: 1 (Tough call, if Watertown hadn't been in Moderately Acclaimed this would've gone the other way)
4) Beastie Boys

11) The Velvet Underground: 1 (Ouch, I hate to have to vote against Fela but he's no Lou Reed)
14) Fela Kuti

7) Neil Young: 2 (I doubted between 1 and 2, but I reckon a 50-place difference (#5 vs #55) warrants 2 points)
2) Led Zeppelin

Ideally, 3-votes would be fairly rare and used only when you truly dislike one of the artists. However, I do not want to dictate how people vote beyond the scale I post, so just vote how you feel.
