Oops you're right!! I voted in Round 7 already up above. I striked out my Round 8 statement. Would not want to get accused of trying to rig the voting process.

Alright... I'm really sad to see 'Indie Cindy' go. It was a song that took a lot of risks and had a stunningly (IMO) beautiful chorus. Oh well. there's really not too much left out there that takes risks. Not really feeling what's left would make a good Pixies record.

Here are the round 7 votes:

Indie Cindy (4)
Tenement Song (4)
Baal’s Back (2)
Women of War (2)
Andro Queen (1)

Good-bye, Indie Cindy. Tenement Song I will not miss.

I'll wait to place my round 8 vote this time. Really, I am just in *shock* that "Indie Cindy" was cut before something like "Women of War" or "All I think About Now". Those just sound like one-off throw-aways to me.

Well my favorite song of the 2.0 era is gone, and along with it Indie Cindy, a song which I feel never reached its potential. Is the best of 2.0 better than the worst of 1.0? I don't know.

I feel lame voting down Baal's Back for the 8th round in a row, so this time I'm voting down Oona.

And yeah Indie Cindy is up there with the best in my opinion. A couple of rubbish lyrics but otherwise punchy and an amazing chorus. Again though, it goes on a little too long. Still, it's a travesty something mundane like AITAN beats it.

round 8 : Might As Well Be Gone

yet again another evidence of how contrasted MTF tastes are, there's no consensus on what's a gem and what's weak

Would be interesting to play this Game with Pixies 1.0

Women Of War. Not bad but it's a throwaway song.

I'm beginning to wonder whether that throwaway/effortless element is why I enjoy it so much.

Women of War is my favorite thing from IC (considering it a B side to....something).

All the remaining songs (and a lot of zapped ones) are good, But the point of this game is to vote for something, right ?

Trying to save Andro Queen. But MAWBG is too good to vote down.

Voting for Women of War. Love Joey's guitar sound on this one, though.

If everyone just switches their vote to Baal's Back then AQ, MAWBG and WOW will all live to see another day.

I would have loved Baal's Back and Andro Queen with the production on Women of War (very nice drums and guitar sound, better than whole IC)
But I prefer Baal's Back and Andro Queen as songs

I can see where this is going, and it's getting pretty tough. Will kill another track later today. Get your vote in!

Save your favorite by sacrificing Baal's Back on the altar of not that great FBF songs.

This is Andro's only hope.

Alright, here we go. Sad to say good-bye to Andro Queen--at least she left me a rusted locket. Here are the results:

Andro Queen (4)
Women of War (4)
Might as Well Be Gone (3)
Bel Esprit (1)
Oona (1)
All I Think About Now (1)

So, what do we think about this now? We have 12 tracks that (theoretically) represent the "best" of Pixies 2.0. Does it feel like a solid collection of songs? Or a deformed horse?

I am not thrilled with the outcome, but I arranged the tracks, best I could, into a decent track order:

Basically we're left with the entire Head Carrier album, minus the two most controversial songs that disappointed many MTFers (Talent and Tenement, though it's true a few here like them like crazy), and with the addition of two random IC tracks (Magdalena and Boom), which in my opinion are quite better than Talent and Tenement. I'm only a mild fan of Magdalena (of the album version particularly), but I rank Boom and Oona as part of my personal Top5 of Pixies 2.0

Saints
Oona
Indie & Jaime (both could be shorter)
Boom
Woman of War

Glad half of them are still in there.
