We are so predictable :lol: The only thing that surprises me is that Coffee&TV didn't win the 13 round.

It was a fun game, Rubi!

Yep, nice one for the polls Rubi. Sparked plenty of interesting debates among all of us!

It's a strong set of songs, no doubt about it.

Yeah can't be many bands where every album has a song or two that could easily be considered their best.

pretty disspointed with that, the supposed hardore fan concensus is made up of singles

(maybe should have removed singles from the album tracks polls)

Maybe that's the way it was meant to be. The singles are supposed to be the best tracks from the album, released beforehand to show the world how good the album is, to represent the album. And in a way, I feel that's exactly what these songs do. You don't have to be a newbie or an elitist to figure out that these are great tunes.

Being an album track doesn't automatically make it better.

Too easy to be snobby about singles. It's a silly argument in some respects anyway, as all sorts of songs were considered or nearly picked to be singles. Trimm Trabb could have been for example.

Yeah discounting singles on principle would be stupid. Universal, Tender, Girls & Boys, Beetlebum and For Tomorrow are all fan favourites and they're singles.
