If Blindness doesn't triumph here, have mercy on me.

What's it worth? I could be persuaded if it came to the crunch.

I've just made it 9-0, think it might be ok...

I have no love of Blindness but would rather see it through - it has something but it isn't something for me. TH has nothing.

I voted Blindness accidentally on purpose.

"Tempo" is sounding good to me lately . . . but it doesn't have the sass and swagger of "Blindness."

Easy one for me to start with.

I love Tempo House, but it doesn't compete with Blindness.

And they just shoved a live Tempo out, Blindness was bandied about in numerous different and thrilling varieties. I ramble. :D

I've stuck with TH up till now but Blindness is too strong for it in this round.

Tough decision, this one. Tempo House, just, for sheer, bloody-minded oddness.

Great to see C21 significantly outstripping the 20th century for once.

Easiest pick of the round.

Even the worst version of Blindness is better than Tempo House.

Tempo House, but it could easily have been Blindness on a different day. What's everyone's beef with Tempo House?

Blindness gets my vote quite easily here - never really been a big fan of Tempo House and I'm a little surprised it's got this far actually...
No contemporary account of this shadowy event has come to light, but some later events are compared to it.

Amazed Blindness is walking away with this. Tempo House, of course.

Blindness and Fantastic Life are where the big money is at the moment. Could one of them beat the Classical?

As long as Leave The Capitol, The N.W.R.A. or Totally Wired don't win, then I don't really mind.

I'm offended by the fact that so many people are offended by Tempo House.
