Moderately Acclaimed Albums 11 - Round 2.7

Post by Brad » Tue Aug 25, 2020 2:29 pm

Welcome to round 2.7 of Moderately Acclaimed Albums 2020!

Vote for your favorite album in each match-up.
Remember, anyone can vote as long as the voter has heard both albums.

Good-spirited comments are encouraged, but not absolutely necessary.
Deadline = September 1st at 10am EST.

Unfortunately, the BracketMaker link is no longer available. I believe the site has closed for good but will continue to check in periodically.

Match-ups:
1. Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness vs. The Soft Boys - Underwater Moonlight
2. Coil - Horse Rotorvator vs. Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold
3. David Byrne & St. Vincent - Love This Giant vs. Everything but the Girl - Amplified Heart
4. Rodriguez - Cold Fact vs. Lou Reed - Lou Reed


It ain’t cool being no fool.
