OK, here we go to settle once and for all (yeah right) which is the best Replacements or Replacements related album. Here’s the bracket (right click or control click to get a better view) In order to come out to a nice even number to make the bracket work best, I included everybody’s solo albums plus a few oddities (Nothing For All, The Shit Hits The Fans, etc.) but left out anything that didn’t have a significant amount of original Mats material (Singles Soundtrack, the Rhino best of, etc). If you feel I’ve left anything out that absolutely should have been included…just don’t tell anyone. I’m sure people will find fault with some of the seedings. I tried to be objective and base them on what I feel the general consensus is among fans, but I’m sure some of my personal bias came through. But hey, just like in sports sometimes you get a bad call and you’ve just got to deal with it. I’ve set up an offsite poll for you to make your selections for each matchup in round 1. Let’s give it a week and say the voting for round 1 will close at end of day Wednesday April 16th at which point the winners will move on, the losers will go to cutout bins and yard sales, and I’ll post an updated bracket.
Round 1 voting open now through Wed. 4/16 Good Luck to all your favorites!
