Update:

Doolittle - 8

Trompe Le Monde - 7

Bossanova- 3

My stomach is in knots

Not really

Whatever you guys want, run off, tie break, face off, sudden impact, sudden death, murder by death, I’m game

The poll time has been closing up to this point whenever I wake up and get on the forum. I don’t set my alarm on Fridays, or Saturday through Thursday, so wake up times may vary. That’s how it’s been anyway

Well I'm on East Coast USA time, so better do what I must now...

Been listening to these three albums this week and I know now that my first choice is Trompe and so I change my vote from Bossanova to Doolittle

Hey, sorry Doolittle! I bleed for you, you debased monkey

We just voted off one of the greatest albums of all time.

Trompe.

This is madness. Neither of these should be in the #1 spot as the crown jewel of FBF’s long and storied career, in my humble opinion. But, here we are.

Bossanova.


I had a bad reaction to your public hobby writings.

It's probably too late as results might be skewed - should have done this before the survivor game - but I'd be curious to take a straight up vote for everyone's opinion of the best FBF album and see how it matches up against the end to end results of this game.

All those years and years of Pixies reunion shows, have certainly contributed to this final round.

But if Surfer Rosa can't go all the way, I'm hoping that Bossanova does. A very elegant collection of many of the best traits from the band and FBF's songwriting prowess in general.

Voting Trompe.

Do you mean that...

Pixies reunion show goers are more tired of Doolittle songs because we've seen those songs performed relentlessly? I'm personally tired of Monkey for this reason, whereas once upon a time I really liked that song

Or have I missed the mark completely?

I did a "Tale of the Tape", where I ranked my favorites on each album, 1-14 for Bossanova and 1-15 for Trompe. Since Trompe has an extra song, I discarded the one ranked in the middle (#8 happened to be Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons). Then I compared the 14 songs from each, #1 vs #1, #2 vs #2, etc. Here's what I finished with (winner for each round bold underlined):

1. Dig For Fire vs Planet of Sound
2. All Over the World vs d=rxt
3. The Happening vs Space (I believe in)
4. Stormy Weather vs Motorway to Roswell
5. Rock Music vs Head On
6. Havelina vs Subbacultcha
7. Allison vs U-Mass
8. Velouria vs The Sad Punk
9. Is She Weird vs Trompe Le Monde
10. Ana vs Palace of the Brine
11. Hang Wire vs The Navajo Know
12. Cecilia Ann vs Lovely Day
13. Blown Away vs Alex Eiffel
14. Down To the Well vs Letter to Memphis

That is a crushing, folks.

Voting Bossanova, TROMPE LE MONDE for the WIN!

Listened to both back to back. Definitely felt Bossanova had a bit more to offer.

Voting for Trompe Le Monde.

Whatever the outcome, it's great to see my all-time favourite Pixies albums on the podium.

This kind of works out perfect for everybody. If you want to ignore Sprite's vote after the tally, then there is a tie, and you're not lying if you say "Bossanova won". If you want to acknowledge it, then Trompe wins. Everyobdy wins.

Follow up questions for those who feel like answering:

What would your final showdown have been?

Are you happy with the way Album Survivor went?

Which album hurt you the most to see voted off?

Which album do you wish got voted off way before it actually did?

If your favorite Breeders album had been allowed to play, where would it have ranked?

If you favorite non FBF related album of all time had been allowed to play, where would it have ranked?

Where do you think BTE might rank in this game if you just had to guess?

Feel free to post any other follow up questions you have.
