You gotta figure that at least 8 of the votes against CoS last time were actual votes, and not tactical ones like Bowl-City's futile yet entertaining attempt to save Counterparts.  If you add in some CP-haters who naturally would go against CoS next and some CA defenders, I suspect it will take at least 16 votes to kill an album not named CoS.  I'd prefer it to be HYF or PoW (whatever my contractually obligated voting says), but if it's CA, that is better than killing the beauty of CoS.

But as the anti-hard rock brigade has been caucusing for weeks, I think people who would rather see PoW, HYF or CA go should get together, or concede that the forces of evil are too great in the world to overcome.

Listen everybody.  Where is your rockin' soul?  Why are you so caught up in "production values"?  You sound like my mother!  Clockwork Angels ROCKS.  Oh, boo hoo, production values!  Wall of noise!  Brickwall!  Too much layering!  Sniffle, sniffle, cry me a river.  The album rocks.  Yeah, but Neil isn't playing like he used to.  Boo frickin' hoo.  I'm so sorry he turned 60 and can't play up to your standards.

:codger: :codger: :codger: :codger: :codger: :codger: :codger: :codger: :codger:

What rocks about CA? Sounds like a wall of static. The guitars are buried. The drums are muffled. The only thing that really sticks out is the bass and it's got so much gain that it just adds to the distortion. Headlong Flight is a good song but it would improve greatly if it were produced by someone who doesn't have a tin ear.

Hyperbole.  We're in a hyperbole war.  The guitars are buried?  All you hear is a faint guitar going "I've been buried alive!  Please someone help me"?  The guitars stand out loud and clear to me.  Best Guitars Ever!  Best album Rush has done in 20 years.  No question in my mind.  In my opinion.

Now boys and girls, this is what too much sugar and caffeine will do to your brain.  Bzzzzzzzz.....   :D

This has to be your favorite round to date. Maybe you enjoyed The Debut getting the axe more possibly? I just note a giddyness in your posts. Only discussion of Geds voice gets you so excited... :cheers:

I remember last round he wanted Counterparts to kill of CoS for the lulz. He'll probably enjoy CA dying more than killing off the debut first round cause he's an evil sonofabitch.
