I'm impressed by the amount of polls you're running simultaneously, Holden!

13. The Doors - The Doors v. 15. Nirvana - Nevermind

6. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon v. 5. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced

8. Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited v. 2. The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

1. Arcade Fire - Funeral v. 4. The Clash - London Calling (this would have been a tougher choice if London Calling were substituted for the U.S. version of The Clash, still a great match-up though)

10. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland v. 11. Marvin Gaye - What's Going On

9. Patti Smith - Horses v. 7. Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde

3. Van Morrison - Astral Weeks v. 14. Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

12. The Beatles - Revolver v. 16. The Beatles - Rubber Soul
If I could hold on to just one thought...

Hi! It's almost midnight here, so unless someone has another list in 40 minutes or so, I'd say I'm good to post the results from this round! I'll post the next round in a few minutes!
1. Nevermind vs. The Doors, 11-15
2. The Dark Side of the Moon vs. Are You Experienced, 18-8
3. Highway 61 Revisited vs. The Queen is Dead, 14-13
4. Funeral vs. London Calling, 14-13
5. What's Going On vs. Electric Ladyland, 11-15
6. Horses vs. Blonde on Blonde, 9-16
7. Astral Weeks vs. It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back, 13-14
8. Rubber Soul vs. Revolver, 6-21
So moving on is The Doors (upset), The Dark Side of the Moon (upset), Highway 61 Revisited, Funeral (upset), Electric Ladyland (upset), Blonde on Blonde, It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back (upset), and Revolver. That's half upsets, compared to only three the first part!
