the question is, will Torche or Harvey Milk take the coveted #1 spot?

fwiw (rockapads), Friday, 23 January 2009 21:35 (5 years ago) Permalink

I voted for DragonForce, too.

The question is, are you over or underestimating any albums?

THE HIPSTER DILEMMA (call all destroyer), Friday, 23 January 2009 21:38 (5 years ago) Permalink

oh wow.

this was the first boris album that did nothing for me.

what time is it for you just now?

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 23 January 2009 21:39 (5 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, definitely my least favorite Boris album so far. But the Japanese version is quite a bit better than the Southern Lord one.

THE HIPSTER DILEMMA (call all destroyer), Friday, 23 January 2009 21:39 (5 years ago) Permalink

and yeah i gotta listen to the japanese one; tho i think their two versions thing is some bullllshit

THE HIPSTER DILEMMA (call all destroyer), Friday, 23 January 2009 21:40 (5 years ago) Permalink

It's a good enough Boris album (esp the diwphalanx version) but Smile and Pink really pale into insignificance compared to a lot of their older stuff. I almost voted for it but gave Coffins my last vote instead.

oh i wont be posting no 3 til about 10.30- and it's 9.41 just now. no 2 and no1 will be after 11. Gotta spin it out, sorry.

so this is like foreplay not premature eJOCKulation

djmartian, Friday, 23 January 2009 21:43 (5 years ago) Permalink

Boris: 16 votes here (but no #1s), 6 in P&J. I'm still puzzled that the Japanese version sounds more Southern Lordish to me than the Southern Lord version.

#s 2 and 3 were tied in votes, but 2 beats 3 on both points and #1 votes. #1 has the most votes and the most points, but not the most #1 votes.

i have yet to hear the US version of Smile, which is probably why i voted for it. either that or the boring Nadja album was my lowest vote I think.

I'll be offline while Pfunk is posting the last 3, but I'll be back with lots of stats later in the (Boston) evening...

This is exactly right.

I'm still pissed off I didn't get a chance to buy the Diwphalanx vinyl

I could just post no3 now while everyone's disappeared for 30 mins thinking I wont post it.

ok just poking my head in here for god knows what reason and WAHT

well i couldn't find roxymuzak in suspenders on the interweb

admittedly this is the only post i read

Yeah, I'm pretty sick of Boris's act. Choose a mix and stick with it, instead of taking advantage the vinyl obsessiveness of SL fans.

The Japanese mix is cool in a Velvet Underground Guitar Amp Tape imitation kind of way, but I actually prefer the more straightforward sound of the US version. Smile grew on me quite a bit over the course of 08.

love that band love that cover A++++

roxymuzak, Friday, 23 January 2009 22:54 (5 years ago) Permalink

i don't accept Earth as metal, but it's a great album for sure.

fwiw (rockapads), Friday, 23 January 2009 22:55 (5 years ago) Permalink

I've never really cared for metal before but some of these covers look too cool not to check out. I knew I shouldn't click on here, I was trying to cut back on what I need to listen to.

a hoy hoy, Friday, 23 January 2009 22:58 (5 years ago) Permalink

Most people seem to think the list isn't metal so don't worry about it a hoy hoy,. Check away and enjoy! That was the whole point of me doing this poll.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 23 January 2009 23:00 (5 years ago) Permalink

yeah for metal dilettantes like myself this is a godsend, thanks for the hard work!

ryan, Friday, 23 January 2009 23:04 (5 years ago) Permalink

i would have voted vertebrae no 1 tbh but i was discouraged from voting

roxymuzak, Friday, 23 January 2009 23:05 (5 years ago) Permalink

lol. because i asked you to vote?

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 23 January 2009 23:06 (5 years ago) Permalink

you told me i couldnt vote for only 2 albums

roxymuzak, Friday, 23 January 2009 23:06 (5 years ago) Permalink

im no metalhead (though i somehow like to read metalthreads) but bought two cd's that fall into the category. i think they're the 1 & 2 here.. :)

willem, Friday, 23 January 2009 23:07 (5 years ago) Permalink

i said i didnt want to encourage that incase people did it to skew the vote (ie guns n roses fans ). there was 268 albums nominated, surely you could have done more than 2.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 23 January 2009 23:07 (5 years ago) Permalink

I'll give you a clue to the shock at no2. It's neither Guns N Roses OR Dragonforce.

Pfunkboy Formerly Known As... (Herman G. Neuname), Friday, 23 January 2009 23:10 (5 years ago) Permalink

Re voting: I didn't vote either, because I honestly hadn't heard enough of the nominations. Metal lightweight. Still, nice to see both of my nominations got decent placings.

Soukesian, Friday, 23 January 2009 23:13 (5 years ago) Permalink

yes i said i was discouraged from voting thank you

*turns on heel and opens umbrella*

Well you know I thought you were just winding me up about bimble's drunken ballot of 2, but he said he would resend it with more, and he did.
btw he didn't vote for any goth-metal.
SO BIMBLE IS NOT MORE GOTH-METAL THAN ANY OF YOU
