Whale,

It's not as complicated as surfing Jeffery's Bay. 10 songs on this album, and surely you know at least a few of them. All you have to do is vote for one of them:

Do It Again - 1
Dirty Work - 1
Kings - 0
Midnite Cruiser - 0
Only a Fool Would Say That - 1
Reelin' in the Years - 0
Fire in the Hole - 0
Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me) - 1
Change of the Guard - 0
Turn That Heartbeat Over Again - 0

I only like those two songs.
So you have surfed J Bay? Very good waves because of the winds........

***Brooklyn***

That vote is for my late father, who was born and raised in Brooklyn and enjoyed many games as a kid at Ebbets Field.

(And that my Dad would wind up with a son who became a Giants fan proves without any doubt that God does indeed have a since of humor!)

You've been telling me you're a genius since your 17, and all the time I've known you I still don't know what you mean+

Whale,

You only get one vote per day, and please add it to the previous total

I've only surfed J-Bay in my dreams, never even been off of this continent. Costa Rica is the most exotic place I've been. Of course, California has some of the best surf in the world, so I haven't been deprived

Captain,

Were you part of the deep dive team? Perhaps a searcher of pearls...
Edit- I am glad to see another game in this format. I had no idea that AlexMontrose pioneered it. Good job Alex...

Can only play for the first 2 or 3 albums - after Pretzel, just my opinion, found them increasingly jazz-lite and sterile sounding. Let the negatives begin.

Daniel,

I just came up with an alternative way of voting in my Porcupine Tree thread, where songs moved from one round to the next. Also they were hand picked before the game started by everyone playing, people choose their five favorite songs by PT, so they were pretty invested in the game.

In the Dylan game Spotty was very classy by pointing out my thread helped him with his voting strategy, that's all.

Ogre,

Daniel was referring to his "depth" post to you. Where he said you went below the water line....hence diving for pearls , etc.
I do what I can Shifty ;)

Captain Ogre says:
spotty,

Thanks for joining in, you can always come back for the semis and final if you only intend to vote on the first three albums.
But is there really not even one song on any of those albums you can get behind?

I get what you mean, though I wouldn't call it lite or sterile. Just a natural progression that correllates to them stopping touring. Katy Lied is easily my favorite album; focusing on the studio work and using a plethora of session players was the only way they could get to where they always wanted to go

Alex,

OK, I get it now, thanks for clearing that up. Deep diving is not my thing. The water gets cold down there, which leads to significant shrinkage. Don't want anyone to be under a complete misapprehension and think that's me
