    You've already killed one of my favorites, Another Life.

    Never again.

    A very tough matchup. Easily two of my top few songs.

    RSS gets my vote.

    Honestly, I love Another Life so much....and i feel like its time I give it the credit it deserves as (in my opinion) the best song off of OOTV. Let's see if a Vein song can knock off a Blue fav


    Fixed...i'm dumb

    Well, first it must get past a Blue fav.

    Vocal delivery makes all the difference in this battle....SJ's awesome in Another Life, while I can't stand that screaming section in RSS. Musically, they're too different to compare. But Another Life is my choice by a significant margin.

    Love them both. Something about Another Life just gives me the chills. Lyrics are amazing. Musically, RSS is probably better/more raw/in your face/awesome (although I still think the songs are too different to compare in that regard).

    Also, if I had to choose one song I want to hear the band do live, it'd be RSS.

    If he'd have kept the original lyrics and the song using the beautiful symbolism of a butterfly - it'd have gotten my vote.

    BUT

    One of my greatest 3eb memories is yelling for RSS with Brad and the rest of the front line crowd around us (even though we didn't get it played).

    Seriously, Red Summer Sun rocks your face off. Its brilliant. The lyrics are good, the guitar is awesome and the drums and baseline (oh the baseline) are incredible.

    Another life has great lyrics and is easy to relate to, but come on RSS murders it.

    I will be very disappointed if RSS doesn't pull this one off. I love Blue and its partly because of this song. And that solo at the end. I don't care if its not supposed to be the version with the solo, we all know its there and it should have been there. I can't pretend it doesn't exist. It puts a great song into the "epic" level.

    Blue > S/T > Ursa Major > OOTV

    I've listened to OOTV maybe once this year, maybe. But i've listened to Blue countless times as well as S/T. No song on OOTV can touch RSS. I'm not sure any song on OOTV can touch any song on Blue.

    Sorry rant over.

    How can you assume this?! I honestly think Ursa is going to end up the worst once we hear the final cuts, but I wouldn't slot it in anywhere just yet.

    I don't know, its just a somewhat educated guess. I really don't like OOTV (comparatively speaking), I mean its a good solid cd, but i find it hard to listen to. After the first half of the cd, save Palm reader, Good Man, and Another life, and you can have the rest. The production blows. These songs could have been great but the production ruined them. I don't like Tony's guitars for the most part (although i think danger and MHAR are tremendous). Its just not an enjoyable cd for me. Having heard most of the songs from Major (and the production of red star and dbaw), i think I am going to like Major much better. It still just a guess - a prediction, and i should have stated it that way.

    I am completely enamored with the Blue era right now.

    RSS losing this is a tragedy. This tourney is full of murders of Caesarian proportions. First Sorry, the demise of Persephone, and I just read some kind of pop-greatness justification on behalf of SCL.

    I don't know how I talk with you people a couple times a day.

    What's Another Life bracketed against next round? I'm certain now that I never appreciated Another Life apparently as much as a lot of people here, but now, I'm actually starting to fucking hate it and want to see it kicked off.

    It's the Duke of this tourney for me now.

    I can definitely second this emotion. If it ends up beating RSS I will have lost the faith

    Agreed. I just re-listened to it and I do like it but it's not even in a league with RSS.

    If AL wins, save me some kool-aid.

    OOTV is a pure straight up pop album. If it was done now, like Ursa, it would be wonderful. Ive heard harder rocking guitars on Lindsay Lohan records. Its still great, but marred by the crisp clean sound that should of been raw as fuck.

    Also RSS FTW. Its a piece of magic. It will be criminal if it doesnt make the next round.

    I give up...Another Life isn't in the same league as Slow Motion, but it somehow manages the victory. Now it is defeating RSS. What next, its gonna take out Background and MDB to go to the finals. I really wish that was sarcasm, but anymore I'm not so sure.

    If anyone can watch this video and vote for Another Life over RSS, there's no hope for this world.

    unbelievable match up..a decision I have feared all my life to make . The two contrast in their general message- one is about coming back from the slums and developing into that person you had always wanted to be. And other about actually being that person and LIVING YOUR LIFE THE FUCK OUT LOUD

    That video gives me chills, the build up, tony's added licks, brad breaking his drumstick and keeping it going, arion being arion. It doesn't get much better.

    Screw MDB and GOW, i'm endorsing RSS to be the champion.

    I think sj should rock the pinstripe pants again, but tony should burn that coat.
