Oh man, it is too soon to see FB getting votes. I'm torn between Bossanova (my favourite Pixies album, but this is about the art) and Trompe. I think I'll vote Bossanova, since Trompe brought us the flying 'P'.

Just a few hours left

Someone please cast a vote to save us from another triple massacre. This is awful.

I would petition that we wait until there is at least a tie-breaking vote - a triple massacre would be too much for this late stage of the game!

Obviously just my opinion but I cant believe anyone could choose one of the 'original' Pixies albums over BTE...

I'd vote Trompe again, but in the interests of breaking the tie, BTE.

As much as I think the album is one of the best of all time and I prefer it over pretty much all of those Pixies albums, I always found the cover of TOTY a bit off, like it's like a slightly cringey in-joke. Mind you, despite thinking an album that good deserved a better cover, I cant ever picture it with anything else, which means that maybe the joke's on people like me... I'd love to see all the outtakes from that photo shoot though.

So I'm going to vote CoP.

Doolittle.

Too straight forward, just a very direct visualization of a song.

I joined the cult of Souled American / 'cause they are a damn' fine band

I'm leaning toward TOTY, but that just gets us closer to having only the five original Pixies covers remaining. So I'm going with Bossanova.

Good point. They are iconic though. I'll go with COP this time.

CoP - 3
Doolittle - 2
Trompe - 2
FB - 2
Bossanova - 1

Round 22 starts right now. Have a great weekend everybody!

By the way everybody, of the remaining final six, there is one album that has yet to receive a single vote from anybody. Does that mean that we already know who wins this thing?

Someone predicted it back on screen 1 or 2. And I think they were right. It was always going to be Surfer Rosa. Still, it's fun to see how we get there.

Frank Black - but, I'll switch to Bossanova or TOTY if it means keeping Doolittle and Trompe alive (my top two in that order). Stay tuned.

I guess I'll vote Doolittle. I love that album cover, but of the ones remaining if you put them all on T-shirts and gave them to people to wear, you could tell what they all were from across the street, except for Doolittle I imagine. In that sense, Doolittle is the "weakest" cover. Still, this is a very hard decision and quite subjective.

Mid round polling (which ends tomorrow) is as follows:

Frank Black - 3
Bossanova - 2
Trompe Le Monde - 1
Doolittle - 1
