Dang - we still want to play? I thought we could quit after widdling the down to 12 songs ("album length"). But, OK. My Round 9 down-vote goes to "All I Think About Now". Too derivative, slow, boring. The vote totals are spread really thin, again representing our inability to agree on good/bad tracks in the 2.0 era:

Bel Esprit (3)
All I Think About Now (3)
Baal’s Back (2)
Plaster of Paris (2)
Might As Well Be Gone (2)
Oona (1)
Un Chagga Lagga (1)
Magdalena (1)
What Goes Boom (1)

"Head Carrier"

It's just that it drags on -- it's about 2 minutes too long, IMO. It also sounds too derivative -- like it wants to be "Bone Machine", but then Dave noticeably re-uses that fill from "Debaser", on the choruses.

Tough to pick one from the final bunch...

UCL. Live it's very good, studio one hit and miss depending what mood I'm in.

Oona. Sounds great at first but starts to drag and get predictable.

Oona's chorus could have been a little bit better, I guess, not as strong as the rest of the song, all those hooks and then those not very interesting chord changes and melody arrive. But everything surrounding the chorus is brilliant, as far as I'm concerned.

Plaster of Paris. Don't understand how it got this far.

Light participation this round. Looks like "Might As Well Be Gone" might as well be...

Might As Well Be Gone (3)
Plaster of Paris (2)
What Goes Boom (1)
Head Carrier (1)
UCL (1)
Oona (1)

Personally, I like MAWBG. It shoulda stuck around. My next round vote is *still* for "Head Carrier".

Looking at the 9 remaining songs, none of them come close to the sound of 1.0. Still, they're fun to listen to from time to time.

Voting against Oona again.

All I think about now is that Baal's Back is still on the list of survivors and beat out so many songs that sound so much better. Wow.....

Funny, Oona is my favourite song.

I think it could fit an early FB record.

And All the Saints could fit Bossanova.

Third favourite is Tenement Song. It's catchy. Most other songs on the record are average/some are a little boring.

Of course it's impossible to match Pixies 1.0. But everyone knows that, including the Pixies themselves. How do you want to match Pixies 1.0 anyway.
