Acclaimed Music Madness: Final Four

Post by Jeff » Sun Dec 14, 2014 4:05 pm

Today begins the final week of Acclaimed Music Madness. The Final Four features all of the #1 seeds in what one hopes will be two tightly contested matches. This poll closes around 11pm EST Wednesday and 4am GMT Thursday.

IMPORTANT: THE VOTING LIMITS VARY BY ROUND DUE TO FEWER MATCHES, MAKE SURE TO READ BELOW:

For each matchup, indicate which artist you prefer and then assign that artist a score between one and three. However, you are limited by the number of scores that you can give. For this round, you have a choice:
EITHER
3 – One per voter.
1 – One per voter.
OR
2 – Two per voter.

Four points either way, but the first option is more extreme.

Matchups
1) The Beatles
1) Prince

1) Bob Dylan
1) Radiohead


When the tournament started, I expected the final to be between the Beatles and Radiohead, which is looking like a decent (if obvious) guess. I actually thought that the Velvet Underground could get to the Final Four since they recently topped the albums poll, but Neil Young busted that bracket. I anticipated Dylan in the Final Four, but somehow got into my head that R.E.M. would beat the Rolling Stones. Of course, I also thought that Kanye would be in the Elite 8. . .

Tough, but I suppose I'll give 2 each to The Beatles and Radiohead.

I'm indifferent to the Beatles and enjoy Prince.

1) Bob Dylan - 2

I like both, but prefer Dylan by some margin.

Interesting to see the fast voters are Radiohead fans while Bob is now catching up (hopefully).

Prince - 1
Bob Dylan - 3

Beatles 1
Bob Dylan 3

If the scoring option existed it would be

Bob Dylan 4

And I love Radiohead.

Just once I'd love to see an artists poll that didn't end up with the Beatles in first. It would be unthinkable, like OK Computer not winning an albums' poll...

Voting for this round is closed.

The Dylan / Radiohead match was quite bizarre. Radiohead opened with a 16-0 run and Dylan closed the round with 24 unanswered points. But will that be enough for Dylan to complete his comeback? Answer in the results thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2192
