The other semi-final is where it is at.

How Blindness beat NWRA is beyond me. :confused:

Even so I'll vote against Garden which has fallen out of favour with me right throughout this competition.

Whichever gets through will surely get annihilated by the winner of the classier semi-final.

Seriously though, if you were going to convert someone new to the Fall, you're going to put on Blindness aren't you? Garden is not going to excite the youth of today.

There are at least 10 songs by the current line up better than Blindness, 5 tracks on Fall Heads Roll are better than Blindness let alone it being their best song since 1983. Delude yourselves all yer want but Garden is a million times better.

Blindness is for adults, fully engaged with life.
Garden is for pimpled adolescents still reading Camus.

Your turn!

Adults SHOULD be reading Camus.

Careful. Nurse Ratched is on her rounds. They'll have you straight down the ECT room.

I know what you mean and kind of agree. Blindness is AOR Fall.

Blindness gets it for me...
No contemporary account of this shadowy event has come to light, but some later events are compared to it.

all topped off with his phlegmy delivery.

It might mention my beloved Hebden Bridge but it's a blind alley.

Garden gets the nod.

So Blindness is the only one for adults, and the only one that the kids would relate to? Easy, then--Garden.
