Shame about Spiderland, but I guess the love for Loveless has grown strong recently. I'm rooting for The Queen is Dead so it can BTFO trash Weezer and because it's the underdog against Loveless. I think Loveless is gonna win this time, ITAOTS has already ended its /mu/-reign.
>>
all of the albums left fucking suck
>>
It's a real shame Aeroplane gets a free win for meme reasons.
>>
>>81413959
But Queen is there.
>>
>>81413951
Oh, Spiderland was there I didn't even notice it, shame about it.
And don't insult Pinkerton, it's an amazingly written album, early Weezer is a genuinelly amazing band. Especially Pinkerton.
I'd love for Loveless to win, It'd be a nice chance of pace.

Spiderland won a /mu/ top 100 not too long ago, I think

>>81414130
It deserved it, that album is a fucking master-piece.
Loveless winning this time is something It'd be cool with as well.

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and Heaven or Las Vegas.
>Which albums are you rooting for in the second half?
Loveless and ITAOTS. I'm assuming one of them will win unless mu is no longer mu. Should have been the final desu.
>Which album do you think will win and why?
Loveless. ITAOTS would have won a few years ago but not any more.

>>81414269
Including sub genres? But I like it.

Sorry no one is talking about your shitty albums, if that bothers you so much, make threads about them or fuck off.

and the queen is dead is a horrible album and definitely inferior to pinkerton, which isn't even the best weezer album

Honestly all of the albums from the past few rounds have been wonderful choices, and it's going to be difficult to pick between these two. Probably gonna end up going for Loveless though.

why is pinkerton /mu/core again? it's such a shitty album.
>that part where they have to stop playing on across the sea because rivers had a pair of pantsu on his head while singing and tripped and fell over pat's drum set and they had to set it up again but kept recording but only until they finish setting up the drums again
>that part where matt's E string snaps on why bother and rivers whips his cock out and tells him to strum that instead, all the while matt is repeating the last word of rivers' sentences one octave higher
>that part in getchoo where brian stops playing cause he wants to go to mcdonalds so rivers brings the mic and when they get there he records the mexican working the drivethru saying "wha can i getchoo" and as soon as that last word is out he goes "AHUH" real loud and just keeps doing it for like 15 minutes until brian decides he wants a big mac with no pickles and a shamrock shake but it's july and they don't have them and the total is $1.45 and just after they leave matt says he wants a medium fries and asks to go back but rivers won't say yes or no he just repeats whatever matt says but in a much higher pitch voice and in an extremely racist chinese accent
>that part where rivers is sampling the evangelion theme on el scorcho but it's really fucking loud and you can hear his mom open the basement door and yell at him to turn it down but like really far back into the mix because it's just so fucking loud so eventually instead of arguing with her he just starts singing along so you hear "rivers you fucking faggot turn that crap down" interwoven with "hotobashiru atsui patosu de, omoide wo uragiru nara"
>that part in butterfly where brian rips a really long fart and he and pat are giggling about it in the background and rivers pretends not to hear them but he's getting annoyed that they're distracting him and you can hear him getting progressively more peeved as the song goes on
who can listen to this garbage unironically????

This is it /mu/. After a week of threads.
The winner of the /mu/ Best Alternative Rock Album of All Time tournament is Loveless!

Thanks everybody who participated in this! I had a blast doing it. And i'm glad some of you got a kick out of this.
That AOTY tournament sounds really fun. Might do that in the end of the year. I'll just fuck off for a while before i actually do something again. AOTY will probably bring in more attractions than this.
But besides that. Peace out.

man I thought/hopes Loveless would win all along either way but I would've liked to see OK Computer go against it and TQID. That Weezer vs. OKC had more votes than the friggin finals why can't we do anything legit boys?

Hype and interest in this fluctuates a lot weirdly enough.
Considering the last poll was deeper in the thread. I expected it to be a little more mellow.
But i followed by my 1:00 AM EST rule.
Rather not make a new thread for just one poll.

>>81427977
Yeah my b I meant the semifinal brackets but how can u tell when someone bots votes? I saw some shit got disqualified were u just keeping up with the polls as much as possible? We need these for AOTY btw.

Objectively true. You all faggots wank your pee-pees to it because Kevin caught tinnitus during the recording and for some reason you recognize it as the greatest bond a musician had with their music ever.
