R9 VOTING CLOSED

The votes have been added up, but the scoreboard won't be revealed now in order to keep the suspense (the R9 placements will be listed in the album presentations). Voting for R9 is not allowed anymore. Stay tuned for R10!

1 Nancy Sinatra - Step Aside not bad or anything, I just really really loved the other three songs
4 Fiona Apple - Carrion so dark and exhilirating when that chorus kicks in. something about the production and lyrics is amazing. it's a grower though
2 Foxes - Lose My Cool shame I'm giving it only a 2, it's really fun and catchy!
3 JONES - New Skin wonderful, magical, cathartic

I will give my thoughts on all of the albums after the winner is announced

thankfulforkelly, I'm surprised that you didn't give "Money" and "Shoot Me Down" a chance to represent "All I Need" in this cup. Both are among the highlights on that album, in my opinion. :(

Money is the worst song on the album (sorry) :lol: I like Shoot Me Down but I think it sounds a bit like a demo imo

4 Foxes - Lose My Cool
3 JONES - New Skin
2 Fiona Apple - Carrion
1 Nancy Sinatra - Step Aside

Carbon, is it too late to vote in the previous round?

yup! late voting was only allowed in the half-rounds when there was 24 albums. this is considered like a normal update with a scoreboard, but without the scoreboard

4 JONES - New Skin (Best effort whilst not being mainstream. Beautiful)
3 Fiona Apple - Carrion (Good song but too sombre. Excellent instrumentation)
2 Nancy Sinatra - Step Aside (Cute song. Standard mainstream from back when. Solid instrumentation)
1 Foxes - Lose My Cool (Extremely catchy. A bit trend chasing but very enjoyable. Won't stand the test of time, though)
