    While we wait for a new tour, album, ep and dvd, I thought it would be fun and to do a album cup of mps albums.

    The rules are easy, you vote for the album you want to win, and in one week (or so), we´ll see who´ll meet in the semis etc.

    I gave the albums a number and used a random number generator to spilt them into the different groups. I´ll use this method again to see who´ll battle each other in the quarter and semi finals.

    Here round 1:

    Group A
    Let them eat Cake VS Barracuda

    Group B
    Soothe VS Heavy Metal Fruit

    Group C
    Blissard VS It's a love cult

    Group D
    Trust Us VS Phanerothyme

    Group E
    Demon Box VS Angels and Daemons at

    Group F
    Lobotomizer VS Child of the Future

    Group G
    Little Lucid Moments VS Black Hole / Blank Canvas

    Group H
    Timothy's Monster VS In the Fishtank

    To make the math add up I had to omit some albums, hence no tusslers or roadworks. (sorry, but it was either 8 or 16 groups, and 16 would include a lot of eps and a lot of work)

    Now´ll lets see if we can get this polls to work

    Yay, I love competitions/polls!

    My votes have been cast, the only one I had trouble deciding was group D. Other than that, the voting was pretty easy actually

    Groups G & H are not fair. BH and the Fishtank probably don't stand any chance there.

    yeah, poor fishtank. Love cult probably doesn´t stand a chance as well.

    Cool! I'd rate both Demon Box and AADAP top five any time, but hey, cup is cup.

    i can't see how age should be related to which MP album you like the most.
    i heard daemon box first, however i like aadap more =)

    it was just a little kidding, as demon+timmy are my favourites ever !

    "soothe" was the first album i heard/bought(together with 3 song for rut - 7"),pretty young i was 15, at that time that record really changed me in some-many-ways, like demon and later timmy did.

    Done, but I think Barracuda and COTF should stand against eachother since they're not "real" albums.

    They were all drawn randomly considering who´d meet who. They might not "real" ,I know what you mean, but still, real enough. same w/fishtank and soothe, but I felt they were more, ehmm, "real" albums, than roadwork, tussler or any of the other ep´s. Every cup need some outsiders
    Also, my post, so I make the rules

    Demon Box > AADAP

    Even though Demon Box was the first MP album I bought (though I'd heard Timmy first),
    I think AADAP is better. More distinct variation, better songs and Un Chien which is better than all tracks on DB. So that wasn't a hard choice.

    See, here I'm toast. I thinkthey're all valid. But I gotta put Roadwork up there with AADAP Heavy Metal Fruit. It was the first MP that really got me and still gets lots of spin. Truth is, this-or-that elimination rounds just don't pan out even. (We go through this every year with "The Final Four" College Baskeball playoffs. It's just a mess.)But fun nonetheless. I think there are comporables. Demon Box vs TM / LTEC vs Phanareoethyme / LLM vs Heavt Metal / Trust Us vs AADAP. But the random generation is pretty interesting. (sorry for my atrocious typing)

    Oooh, one more. In the Fishtank vs MP Presents... would you rather hear MP do Jazz or Americana. (Love 'em both)

    This wasn't too hard! Only Demon Box vs. AADAP made me consider.Went for AADAP, not because I like it more, but because I figured Demon Box would get most of the votes anyway. Sucks that Phanerothyme had to go this early.. But cup is cup!

    Yr not the only one so I wouldn´t worry too much about that, most of us here doesn´t have english as our first language, but we´ll mostly get ourselves understood. I hope.
