2021 AMF Tournament of Champions: Round 4, Part 4 (Current)

Post by Holden »

Hello! Welcome to Round 4 of the 2021 AMF Tournament of Champions! Here are the rules for this game overall, as a refresher:

Each of the 27 competitors submitted one album and ten songs. The ten songs each compete in one of ten rounds, each with a different type of competition. Meanwhile, the albums will be rated (out of ten) as time goes on. After each round, each competitor will receive points based on their performance in the round. At the end of all ten rounds, the points will be totaled from each round and the rating of the album, and a winner will be declared!

This week's rules:
The fourth round is going to involve voting for your least favorite from a group of songs. You will vote for the three songs you liked the least using the in-forum poll function. This is the final part of round four, so this is for the winner of the round. Here are your songs:

Brian Eno | King's Lead Hat
DJ Shadow | Mutual Slump
Johnny Cash | Ain't No Grave
Lou Reed | Crazy Feeling
Low | Nothing But Heart
MGMT | The Youth
Pixies | Gouge Away
The Decemberists | This Is Why We Fight
Thomas Happ | Apocalypse

Playlist


Please rate albums from this list out of ten. You can do this in any order, but please post in the most recent thread!

However I will be 'featuring' one album a week to make them more digestible. This week's album is:

La Lá | "Zamba puta" (2017)



Alright, in conclusion:
Select your three LEAST favorite songs from the least above. You have seven days from the time of this post (May 1st)! Have fun!

Additionally, rate albums from the list out of ten. You can do this at whatever pace you like, but post your ratings in the most recent thread! And you can always rate previously featured albums as well!

I don't dislike any of the songs above, but ended up voting for DJ Shadow, MGMT and Pixies. Too bad Happ and Low are doing worst, as along with Cash they are part of my top 3 here.

La Lá | "Zamba puta": 7
Nothing too unexpected, but it is a very soothing album, elevated by a beautiful voice.
