Good morning y'all and welcome to the draw for the 1989

a reminder of the guidelines I use for these: this is a two-stage event, with a group stage and a knockout stage; no live albums, no compilations (sorry, Minor Threat), one album per group, entirely at my discretion; ties will be broken up by whoever is in the higher pod for the draw

one row, one group; the action starts tomorrow!

1989 CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

@derek I can't even be mad if NIN loses to Disintegration

@neoncoughh I think Beasties/NIN is the closer (and thus better) final, but at this point, these are four albums I like to love, so I'm with you

@derek I thought this was going to be the "They definitely shared a bill" matchup - close, but not quite!

#AlbumBowl

@firewally also is De La and the Beasties both win, they 100% shared a bill, right?

@derek My gut says yes but both groups have taken a number of hiatuses, so I'm not 100% on it. I'll wait until the matchup to find out for real

@derek Here is where we make our stand against the rockists #AlbumBowl

@firewally I mean Paul's Boutique is also just the better record

@derek @firewally imo there's a reason that bleach is not the album that got nirvana famous imo

@MrsMouse either is fine, but also neither is fine; the Selection Committee endorses all forms of voting, including not voting
