    Had to vote against Getaway. It's a very solid tune but Pendulum brought something different to the table that reminded me of the experimental Binaural era.

    Mym and lb are two of their best live/studio songs in a long time.  I m in disbelief that both got voted off. This group really likes the anti crowd songs.  
    First inside job and now this; there is finally a reason to be thankful  that there is not an 11th album. 
    What, we're not gonna vote on  Lost Dogs? or not doing Lost Dogs?
    I'm still not sure that we should.

    The Durham Bulls weren't allowed to play for the World Series.

    If there's a question of what to do next, my vote is for a Champions Poll. Ten albums, ten winning songs, ten voting slots. It's​ clean and fitting.

    Lost Dogs would be fun too but maybe later or some other time.

    Pendulum would make for a nice future closer at shows I think...kind of like Indifference.

    I just cranked LB on the stereo and yeah, I think Pendulum is the right vote for me.
    It's a desert island type song, the kind you could live with forever.
    Getaway has more short term appeal, but it doesn't have the staying power of Pendulum.

    Everyone shits on Backspacer all the time but a Backspacer holdover might win this album.  You can't make this shit up.

    But LB sucks too, so it makes sense....

    Just tipped the scales from 50 50 to 50 49.  Pendulum is leading the way for the weaker song.  Always liked Getaway more.

    Will there be a Lost Dogs or B sides version of this elimination set up?  Also, will there be a showdown with the picks for the best song from each album?

    I'd love to see separate voting for discs 1 & 2 of Lost Dogs. Then a vote for all of the winners.

    Wow, this is ridiculously close.  Glad I voted for real this time......hehehehe.  Tied at 65 each.

    I do agree with the other post that MYM could have /  should have won.  I'll take Pendulum as a close second and be fine if it wins.  If Getaway wins, then we have a problem.
    There's no need to say goodbye

    Of all the albums, it would make most sense for this to end in a tie.

    You know you could always start your own Lost Dogs one if the OP doesn't choose to do one. @MedozK were you given exclusive rights to the polling and only results from your polls are recognized as official by the band? Lol

    I'm honestly not trying to sound like a jackass. I got rolling there and I just want you to know that if it reads poorly, it was not intended to. 
    Not a jackass. It was funny.

    Are you trying to mess with us? This poll has 14.5 more hours to go! It's going to be a tie. Let's make it happen ;)
