We’ve had 50 HGIIR threads so obviously it’s now time for the HGIIR World Cup. I want to have 8 groups of 6 for the first round so I immediately want to reduce that back down to 48. I’m going to do a qualifying round so which album do you think should have that 48th place:
- Duran Duran - Rio
- Oasis - Definitely Maybe
- The Killers - Hot Fuss
Poll closes at 2pm today
The debut album by Local Indian will win.
As long as it’s not Kid A
Yeah good luck with that.
Boom Shack-A-Lack was a banger tbf
Kid A 2nd place - unless it comes up against Funeral along the way to the final
Going to vote against 36 Chambers at every opportunity to keep things interesting.
I know they’re massive underdogs to even make it out of the group stages but I can’t help myself, rooting for lovely local boys Radiohead
To keep true to the nature of tournament sports and the ebb and flow of form and fortune found therin, I’m going to go with “which album do I most fancy listening to today” for each match.
Can’t believe I’d take a Radiohead win here.
Sophtware Slump looking a good outside bet at 25/1.
You already know that 36 Chambers is going out first round.
Nah man 'cos WU-TANG IS FOREVER
Aretha Franklin - The best of Aretha Franklin
I’m looking forward to the semi finals between Radiohead, REM, The National and Beastie Boys
Hot off the heels of my guest edition, this is Leaves Turn Inside You’s time to shine!
Just like to thank those of us who wanted Rio for a bit of competition but ultimately I will accept the forum’s decision that we just need an album we can all get behind giving a damn good kicking to.
