Incubus Ultimate Survivor: Winners (Round 1)

Postby Jelger » Sun Nov 19, 2017 6:35 am

Hi guys! How's everyone? The final round: winners-cup! We tackled everything: Fungus Amongus , S.C.I.E.N.C.E , Make Yourself, Morning View, A Crow Left of the Murder, Light Grenades, If Not Now, When?, Trust Fall (Side A), 8 and even b-sides. Now it's time to pick the ultimate song. Remember to vote your LEAST favorite. There was some confusion about that, but if you vote your favorite... it might be gone soon!

One important thing to remember in this round: this is NOT about your favorite album. ACLOTM might be your favorite album, but you can still think The Warmth is the best out of these songs. Or Fungus might be your least favorite record, that doesn't mean you'd have to vote Azwethinkweiz now if you prefer it over any other song. It's about the best/your favorite song on this list. This might be the hardest survivor yet. So let's go, our last hurrah!

VOTE

So let's go ahead and VOTE here on your LEAST FAVORITE of the survivor winners. I'll try to post a new round every two or three days and will also post the survivor over at /r/incubus.

VOTE

Songs left:
Azwethinkweiz
Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song)
The Warmth
Just A Phase

Technically ? I'm not a musician so go easy on me here, but it seems to me that musically azwethinkweiz has so much going on... jazz, funk, metal. Trustfall sounds safe and doesn't reallly experiment much musically. Am I off on this?

Haha, well it’s all subjective, doesn’t matter if you’re a musician or not. Azwethinkweiz is quite technical I suppose. I just think it doesn’t do anything for me - it’s all try hard and clever but Trust Fall has real build and presence. But then I like Trust Fall loads!

So in sum I think Azwethinkweiz is more technical but Trust Fall is the superior songwriting. But as The Rock would say, it doesn’t matter what I think!! :mrgreen:

Now it's time to pick the ultimate song. Remember to vote your LEAST favorite. There was some confusion about that, but if you vote your favorite... it might be gone soon!

So first of the winners to go: Azwethinkweiz. Not a huge surprise to me, even though I really like the song. There's a lot going on, but I think songwriting-wise every other song on this list is better. It's a highly enjoyable song to me, no misunderstanding there. Enjoy a live version here.

So let's go ahead and VOTE here on your LEAST FAVORITE of the survivor winners. I'll try to post a new round every two or three days and will also post the survivor over at /r/incubus.

Going with 'Adolescents' this round.
Great track, just my least favorite of the songs left.

Glitterbomb for me. It's not in my top-3 for 8, all the other songs (save for Just A Phase and Anna Molly) are in my top-3 for their respective album. And Just A Phase isn't in my Morning View top-3, only because that album is just so good.

Glitterbomb.

Safe to say the winner will be between The Warmth and SSLW, no? Would be a big surprise if any other wins.

We tackled everything: Fungus Amongus , S.C.I.E.N.C.E , Make Yourself, Morning View, A Crow Left of the Murder, Light Grenades, If Not Now, When?, Trust Fall (Side A), 8 and even b-sides. Now it's time to pick the ultimate song. Remember to vote your LEAST favorite. There was some confusion about that, but if you vote your favorite... it might be gone soon!

Today we bid farewell to Adolescents. No surprise that it went this early, because I think the opinion people have of a certain record also plays a factor in this poll. Adolescents is dragged down by its surrounding tracks, I think. It's a good song, and when it first came out I was blown away. I thought it was the most Morning View-ish thing they had done since Morning View and was so overjoyed with that fact. A good song, a good single. Enjoy an acoustic live version here.

VOTE

So let's go ahead and VOTE here on your LEAST FAVORITE of the survivor winners. I'll try to post a new round every two or three days and will also post the survivor over at /r/incubus.

Surprised it lost to the only b side track on here. I didn't realize look alive was so popular.

To be fair, I made a mistake and forgot Look Alive last round. So that got a bye. I didn't feel like redoing a round and Glitterbomb, Trust Fall and Adolescents all got more votes than Look Alive in round one.

Adolescents for me is superior to many of those others but as you say it’s a fantastic song on a drab record
