And so, it appears that Abbabubba is a bye-bye as far as the forum is concerned.

A few of us will miss it, but life goes on, and surviving continues, for now.

Who will be the next victim of the brutality that is "Frank Black Album Survivor"?

Gone:

Paley and Francis

Snake Oil
Petit Fours
One More Road for the Hit
Abbabubba

Still surviving:

Come on Pilgrim
Surfer Rosa
Doolittle
Bossanova
Trompe Le Monde
B-Sides
Frank Black Self-Titled
TOTY
Cult of Ray
Oddballs
Frank Black and the Catholics Self-Titled
Pistolero
Dog in the Sand
Black Letter Days
Devil's Workshop
Show Me Your Tears
Honeycomb
FMRM
Christmass
Bluefinger
SVN Fingers
Golem
NSE
Indie Cindy

Of what's left, it's a toss-up between Christmass and Oddballs. I guess I'll go Oddballs. Might catch some flack for that, but it's not just not my jam.

The Roxy Music cover alone makes Oddballs worth saving

Christmass was like the announcement of a new era, and had many gems

Voting Oddballs before Honeycomb or Indiie Cindy does not seem possible. Listen to Announcement.

IC



Oh hell naw!! :D

Honeycomb is brilliant imo, and IC is vastly superior in every way except the final mastering. Oddballs is nifty at times, but it is exactly what it is - stuff that didnít make the cut. Cleaning out the fridge after the leftovers from a few good meals start piling up and aging. IC on the other hand is what it is - a very focused, give-it-all-you-got effort by the man. Itís not perfect by any means, but it smokes Oddballs like a bad cigar!

I think I would rather listen to Announcement, Man of Steel, and You Never Heard About Me 3x in a row each, for a total of 12 spins, then listen to the 12 songs on IC.

And of course I love the man and everything he does, so it really isn't easy to say that.

But I accept that Oddballs will probably go next. Just surprised at how long Honeycomb (which I also love but have to be in the mood for) will outlast other albums.

Listening to NSE for the first time in a while and the combo of When I Go Down on You/Nonstoperotik is making it a pretty strong contender for my vote.

Will give it some more thought.

Like Oddballs, I can think of several albums I would jettison before NSE, such as Indie Cindy, Honeycomb, Show Me Your Tears, etc.

But I get that many consider NSE to be.... challenging.

Midweek update:

Oddballs - 3

Indie Cindy - 2

Pistolero - 1

NSE - still being pondered(?)

I am hoping for a tie so that if Oddballs goes at least IC goes with it.

Have I not voted yet?

I can't remember.

I'm going to go with Oddballs, even though I don't think I've actually listened to that one yet: a tactical move to potentially give IC another shot at the bucket and maybe save NSE for another week.

You have not voted yet pot, so you will be counted as another anti-oddball,

I'm going to listen to it tomorrow, and how ironic would it be if it turns out I absolutely love Oddballs?

I popped it on again after the last weeks discussions... my opinion is unchanged. Nothing wrong with it really, itís just, well, leftovers. It seems clear why these tracks didnít didnít find a home on the proper ďalbums.Ē Not good enough to make the first cut, but not weak enough to leave in the vault.

I wish 2.0 sounded more like this, whatever

Neither album is his best, but at least you can hear NSE clearly.

And NSE has EDF, so that is a definite plus.

Cindy does have the best 2.0 song so far though, IMHO.

By the way, Golem almost got voted out a couple rounds ago but now has managed to sneak through unscathed for the last couple of votes and is not even being mentioned anymore. Very interesting.
