    This will get underway this Friday, 11/13.

    That’s Friday the 13th, for those counting.

    Topic of discussion before we get started: should we even vote on anything pre-Chamberlain Waits? My worries are that many here have likely never bothered to even listen to those releases and participation may suffer because of it, and while they aren’t necessarily throwaways, it’s hard to imagine anything from them even putting up a respectable fight in the championship.

    Thoughts?

    This is the bracket i've been waiting for. Personally I think pre-Chamberlain Waits should be included but i'd completely understand why people wouldn't agree.

    Yeah I mean I don’t visit anything prior to CW ever. I hardly really ever visit CW but totally understand lots of people do.

    I’d argue for doing Lesson but understand a lot of people might not have even listened to it lol.

    Who here is a bigger fan than me that can post a master list of all the releases that should be included, as well as all relevant songs for the b-sides/bonus tracks/extras round?

    "The first night I got my fix
    Was with my brother and my friend Chris
    Stole my mothers Smirnoff vodka
    Mixed it with some cans of Fresca
    And we learned how our parents lived
    We found that we were good at it
    Meet me at the bottom or in between"

    Solid gold. Better be included.

    I’d maybe throw the Hold On, Dodge EP in with that round. Not sure where else it would belong, and I think Sunday Morning should definitely be included.

    Good idea. I think that makes the most sense. That will give us 14 total tracks for that round, on par with the rounds that will follow.

    Great Apes is such a quality song. I wish I had a high quality download of it.

    This whole thread is making me sad. Chamberlain Waits (and OTIP for those who started with Rented World or After the Party) are absolute gems. I still prefer CW to Rented World, After the Party, and Hello Exile. A Lesson in the Abuse has some fun tracks but the production is pretty gnarly. Please listen to them!

    That, and the first CWS album would be amazing to have re-recorded.

    Hold on, Dodge is always like the Senor & the Queen EP for Gaslight for me. Perfect transition between what the band was and what it was going to become.
