And a quick update to a rather mixed round 8...

Great - very good
Ground-Zero - Paraiso 1
Procol Harum - Shine On Brightly
Khan - Stargazers
Triana - Abre la puerta

Good - alright
Storm Corrosion – Lock Howl

China Crisis - Tragedy and Mystery

Fair - average
Mellow Candle – Boulders on my Grave
Prism - Karma

Poor
Logos - Antifona/Venivo Da Un Lungo Sonno
Abacab - La Source
Transatlantic - Black As The Sky

Actually not too bad overall, but the low points were certainly *low*. Again it seems we have a few tracks topping the overall rankings too!

Way to get Algroth’s vote?

Put it in some total shite with no tune sung in a foreign language.

Easy vote winner.

To quote a little-known track in the cup thus far, I know what I like. I also know what I don't. Part if the fun in the cup is giving one's input on the tracks, and it just happens that I find a lot of this reg-rock to be utterly anathema to my tastes. You enjoy it? More power to you. But play the ball, not the player. :)

Fun lad?

Fun?

Wash your mouth out.

This is serious business and a tremendous amount is at stake.

As for your wishy-washy liberalist view 'I love prog and respect all' - there is no place for that.

DC is DC and should be eradicated from this world like airbrushing out Trotsky!

Disgraceful

Yes, disgraceful
