I wasn't sure if it is too soon to start one, but since it's been out for over a month I figured it was worth a shot.
I'm doing it with just the songs - but if there is a big enough concensus to put in other tracks let me know.
I think i'll do a new round every 5 days

1. I AM THE MAHARAL
2. THE CONJURING
3. MAKANUJO
4. MEET ME AT THE GHETTO GATES
5. STARS
6. THE OBEDIENT SERVANT
7. MIRIAM AND FLORIAN
8. (OH I WISH I COULD) STAY
9. THE FLOWER SONG
10. CUSTOM ALL THE WAY
11. BAD NEWS
12. ASTAROTH
13. THE WORD
14. YOU'RE GONNA PAY

My vote is for the Conjuring

I vote to remove Meet Me at the Ghetto Gates.

(This is hard. There are no songs I don't like, and none really stick out as THE song at the top of my list.)



And all of this for nuthin', after all my huffin' and puffin'.

Well, one song does stick out as the top one in my list, and it is Meet Me At The Ghetto Gates. So, once again, you're wrong.

It's too early for me to do this thing. I still haven't head the album enough. But I'd vote off Oh I Wish I Could Stay.

I think we should vote ON The Maharal (Reprise)

It could be reverse survivor, where themes and reprises are saved

Oh boy you guys are already acting some kinds of crazy. This survivor's gonna be all over the place. Meet Me at the Ghetto Gates is wonderful. I wouldn't vote any off cos they all work but to play the game you have to so I vote You're Gonna Pay cos throwing effeminate courtiers off roofs is still bad.

This is really hard. My bottom three are probably Ghetto, Stay & Makanujo. Beyond that > near impossible.


I have the key to #902

(Oh How I Wish I Could) Stay...to go.

This is a tough Survivor! I know my favourite few tracks, it's just difficult to rank them after that.

Hey Brank, cross off Ghetto Gates already. I can't bear any more of this. You guys don't know what you're missing.

Alright, SOMEONE has to explain to me why they consider it the worst of the album. That makes absolutely no sense to me, and I wanna know.

Yeh for me the Ghetto gates works far better in the film than on CD...

Next off, The Flower Song, for the same reason.

Stay should stay. Is there a pattern emerging here? The softer tracks are going first. This is turning into a contest about who can shuot the loudest.

You're Gonna Pay to go.

BF is writing some of the best softer tunes of his career (see also Non Stop Erotic).

You just CAN'T vote off The Conjuring. Simply for the "Yeah..." at 0'51". And for the "Slay me Ralph!" on the live disc.

I understand your opposition, but i think it is the only song that makes a difficult transition from the movie to the album. I'm not too fond of the intro/harpsichord section of the song, and while the main part is awesome it doesnt work as well without the visuals since its more of a mood peice than a melody/song peice if you know what I mean.

"(Oh How I Wish I Could) Stay" gets my vote as next to go... there's some lovely stuff in it, but it doesn't add up to anything.

I pretty much love all of the remaining tracks so this is painful but I'm going to vote off THE WORD only because it would be better if it were about 30 seconds shorter.

Makanujo to go. Only because it's just 'A Dab'll Do Ya' in disguise.

I'm with Active Duck, this is getting more difficult. I created an itunes playlist with the remaining songs and have gone through it a few times... and my vote this round is for Makanujo. It really IS distractingly evocative of Dab'll Do Ya.

I'm out of sync with most of you guys, Really loving Charles' mellower songs right now, including those off NSE.

I love the mellower ones from NSE, too. But, for some reason, the harder songs on Golem grab me more.
