My two favourite songs from the album have made it to the shoot-out.

I vote for All Those Faces to win. I really like the way it starts simple and then develops.

My favourites are long gone. I'm quite surprised to see "I Refuse" in the final and with so few challenges along the way. I like the message as it shows (assuming it's autobiographical) Timothy's strength and that the air of neutrality doesn't always come easily to him.

I vote I Refuse for the win.

Very few votes so far. I feel that I'm in a no-lose situation given it's my favourite two songs. But, still very curious to see which one wins.

Oh man, there were 3 of us that missed the round that Red Dirt Road went down in! I think we could have saved it!

So, moving on, these last two songs are great and it's hard to decide, but....

All Those Faces for the win.

I love the harmonica and that haunting melody!

I vote I Refuse for the win!!

I like both songs but I Refuse just edges out in front due to its rockier sound

There's always the method that I have seen attributed to Sigmund Freud (maybe wrongly) for when you have to make a binary decision. Assign one song to heads of a coin, one song to tails. Toss the coin, but don't open your hand to look. Then think to yourself: what do I find myself hoping that the result will be?

For the win, All Those Faces. I love how the album title is integrated into the song.

I decided to listen to All Those Face several times again over the last couple of days to see if I could figure out what I am missing and what the song's appeal is. Unfortunately, I didn't have any luck - the song just doesn't do a thing for me. On the other hand, I Refuse is my second favorite song on the album. So, for me this is very simple - no contest.

I cast my vote for I Refuse for the win!

This was a hard decision to make as both of these songs are tied at the top of my list, I figured that one of them would have been booted before the final. After listening to them again quite a few times, I am going to vote for I Refuse.
