The Bracket (http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?tid=325591)

Why?:(

Well, it's New Born vs. Piano Thing. This will be interesting, the only instrumental in this tournament against one of Muse's most popular songs. I love Piano Thing and am gonna vote for it, because I feel bad for it and want it to win.

Annoying really because Piano Thing is a brilliant piece in the style of Rachmaninov.

But it's against New Born. I voted Piano Thing....because NB will win easily and noone else will :P

Hooray for public polls.

Oh, and NB for the win! I'm pretty sure it's my all-time fave song. :awesome:

I'm really not that keen on Piano Thing. Everyone was raving about it in the other tournament, so I downloaded it (quite shocked to find a Muse song I don't have!), but it turned out to be... not that good :(

Sorry

Sorry
I'm not overly impressed by it either.... I don't think it's awful or anything, but I dunno.. I wouldn't call it brilliant :erm:

By the way, in the thread naming, wouldn't the proper names should be round 2-1 and 2-2...?

*nitpicks* sorry :$

I wasn't sure, so I just went with how the bracket numbered each game. Does anyone else think I should change it? I will if more people think so.

Yeah, I think you should change it or people are going to get confused.

Yeah, the bracket just numbers the matches sequentially, but since 100etc was doing it in rounds, it seems like it would make more sense to restart the numbers every round...?

It's not that important or anything, just sayin.... :D


BTW lol @ my english in that other post :awesome: :facepalm:

Yes, I'd say so. This is 2-2, the previous 2-1, and the next will be 2-3:)

OMG! That was so hard and I really didn't expect it to be. I didn't realize I loved the Piano Thing that much. It's so pretty and classical and shows you what a genius he is. But so does New Born.

In the end.....I went with New Born.

It's a shame all of the B-Sides are going to be eliminated because a lot of people still have yet to hear them. :stunned:

Did anyone note yet that this is the single New Born vs. its own B-side?

Damn, I wrote out a long post earlier and my Mac decided to restart itself without asking :indiff:. Anyways, I said something along the lines of New Born being the best song in the world :LOL:. Or at least one of Muse's best EVER songs, imo. It's almost impossible to beat ;). I also mentioned that both songs are on my fave CD single - New Born/ Shrinking Universe / Piano Thing - what an awesome mix of songs on one CD :D!

All that said, I still think Piano Thing is wicked. It doesn't get enough credit for simply sounding brilliant, imo. I know it gets a lot of criticism on a technical level for being 'all over the place'/ 'lacking structure' / 'ripping off so and so [insert thousands of composers' names here] - but for those of us who judge songs purely by how much the like/dislike what they hear, I think it's a lovely piece of work, lol.
