    I would like to see a few more guesses before I start giving clues. I'll come back tonight if no one else has got any.

    I'm pretty sure I've got the missing four:

    3. is AM by Arctic Monkeys
    4. is (I think) For Emma, Forever Ago by Bon Iver
    7. is Trouble Will Find Me by The National

    And while I'm not super familiar with the album itslef, I'm pretty sure 1 is Sigh No More by Mumford & Sons.

    I came here to put down some clues but Oliver gets the remaining 4 in one fell swoop. For comparrison here is the side by side:




    That leaves us with both Steve & Oliver on 4 and TripleR on 1

    Not sure what the precedent with a tie is. I'm happy to put up a single image tie breaker if you want or let me know what the precedent is.

    There is no precedent. I guess the whole "What if there's a tie?" thing needs to have some answer, in general.

    I would say that a good default would be to give it to whichever of the folks who tied hasn't done one for the longest, just to keep a bit of variety in the mix and avoid two people potentially basically ping pong-ing it back and forth.. If the two who tied haven't done one, period, they can just suss it out amongst themselves.

    Another option would be that if there's a tie, the winner is the one who made the first correct guess. That way the winner would be determined by an aspect of their performance in the Challenge as opposed to any outside timeframe component.

    Which do you guys prefer?

    Either way I think you are next Steve because I won it off Oliver. I like the idea that it defaults to the fist correct guess.

    So I guess everyone else is cool with that process of determining a tie-breaker?

    I guess so. I'll have a new challenge up tomorrow sometime. Could be an interesting one, as I've got a dental appointment in the morning that involves the ripping of a wisdom tooth from my head, so I might be all high and shit.

    I'm actually not high at all. Refused any gas and whatnot due to not being able to find anyone who could drive me home.

    This is gonna be a fun one, though. There are a couple that may cause the scratching of heads among some of you, while others are pretty obvious. So let's go.






    1)
    2) Reload by Metallica (TripleR)
    3)
    4)
    5)
    6)
    7) The Marshall Mathers LP by Eminem (TripleR)
    8)
    9)

    I've got nothing on this one. Your pain killer induced picks have left me stumped Steve.

    I really thought this one would be relatively easy. I just keep on misjudging these things.

    I feel like I sort of recognise 1,3,4, and 9. But beyond the sense there's not a lot I can say....

    So does the deafening silence mean that we're already in need of hints after only 2 correct answers? If so, it would appear that I've made the most difficult Album Challenge of all time. Which is kinda impressive for a dude still coming down off of laughing gas.

    Right on. I'll make with some hints, then. I'll have to be vague with some, because I'm telling you guys, a couple of these are ridiculously easy.

    #1 let us all know that there's never been a right time to say goodbye.
    #3 had some ups and down, but that was well after this debut album had released.
    #4 is beloved by kids in China, probably.
    I'm surprised that #5 is become is become is becoming such an issue for folks to figure out.
    I wonder if any of the guys from #6 will show up in the Roseanne revival?
    Statistically speaking, everyone reading this has probably owned at least one copy of #8.
    #9 is probably the most difficult one, like smooching with a busted lip.

    If we gave partial credit, you'd get it.

    Can't go any further with it than that but thought it might help. They were never really that big a deal here, to the best of my knowledge.

    Is anyone else even playing at the moment? If so and I need to post more clues, right on. But if it's just me and Prime then it'll eventually just be us playing a game of 20 questions until it's over.
