Title: The TAC Roulette- Final Results!!!
Post by: TAC on April 24, 2015, 03:51:39 PM
Looking for 8 victims.

IN:
Jingle Boy
b5150
Kingshmegland
Big Hath
Evermind
jjrock88
Wolfking
Senecadawg2
Lonestar

Rules..
1.   Nothing complicated.  8 people, 8 rounds.
2.   No eliminations
3.   Themed rounds and a couple open rounds
4.   Scoring from 1-10 points per song
5.   Schedule likely to be this, as how it jives with my work schedule. Submissions in by Tuesday PM and Iíll have the results the following Monday
6.   Like Kirknosehair, I plan on making CDs of each round to listen to in the car. I can rip from Youtube so youtube links really will work best.
7.   My ask when submitting  a song is to please include Album name and year and if possible the band lineup. This will be necessary for the Guitar Hero round. Iím interested in the supporting musicians as well. Same for the Savatage round, as I know they have had lineup changes.
8.   I will ship the TAC Roulette CD Set to the winner!!!!! Thatís the prize!
9.     If you are torn between 2 songs for a round, I will allow everyone to use a Wild Card, which means you can send two, and I'll use the best one. You can only use this Wild Card ONCE and this option, for obvious reasons, will NOT be available for the Winger Round.
 
Round 1..Kick my ASS Round!
Submit a track that will knock me out. Consider how an opening track of an album or a concert sets the tone. Thatís what Iím looking for here.

Round 2..Savatage Round
Savatage is a band that I cannot get into. I need some convincing. And sorry Chad, no TSO.

Round 3..Guitar Hero Instrumental Round
The only Guitar Instrumental albums I have belong to Michael Schenker and Uli Roth. I know there are TONS of great albums out there. Let me hear them.  And while Steve Vai is most certainly allowed, please donít send me The Attitude Song. I have that.

Round 4..Open Round

Round 5..Winger Round
You assholes wanted it, you got it! I suppose this saves me the trouble of disqualifying everyone at the same time because I know you guys were going to play shenanigans.
Why is Round 5 the Winger round? Because sucks has five letters. So does blows.  So does queer.

Round 6..Open Round

Round 7ÖLive Round
Must be a selection from a Live Album. No time limit.

Round 8ÖEpic Round
Itís not a DTF Roulette without an Epic Round right? 10-15 minute time limit here.

As most of you guys know, I am not a fan of growls so send at your own risk.

Title: Re: The TAC Roulette
Post by: wolfking on April 26, 2015, 03:54:38 AM
I was looking for the official Winger thread, might as well make this a new one by the looks of it.  ;D

Rankings;

Pull
Better Days Comin;
Winger
Karma
IV
In the Heart of the Young

The new one was really excellent.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette
Post by: bl5150 on April 26, 2015, 07:29:25 AM
I honestly can't remember much about their last one at all - only listened once or twice.

Looking at my ratings it'd be something like this...

1) Pull
2) Karma
3 Winger
4) Better Days Comin
5/6)  IV and In The Heart of the Young.

it looks like we're pretty much in line aside from the new one.

I think the majority of people would list Pull as their favorite. I'm not a big fan of the band, but that's a good album

I know I know the first answer. It's a multiple choice.
A. They suck
B. They're queer
C. They blow
D All of the above


I'm going with D!!

Hey guys, which album would you recommend to someone who wants to get into Winger? And why that one? :neverusethis:
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette
Post by: Sir GuitarCozmo on April 27, 2015, 04:25:45 PM
All of them, because:

A) TAC wouldn't know a good band if it fell out of the sky, landed on his face, and started to dance
B) Paul Taylor's hair
C) Dixie Dregs
D) They're awesome
E) D

Hint:  It's E.

Pull is their best and most mature work.  I don't think you can go wrong with that one.  If your more a metal hard rock type, go Pull, Karma and Better Days Comin.'  If you like your glam you might like the debut.

From what I've seen of those shows on Youtube he does a great job.

What are you hoping Tim will do King? - stage a protest out the front of the venue?  ;D

A State of Emergency for Tim at the moment - maybe it's Karma at work. But don't worry mate - there's Better Days Comin (once the roulette finishes in the year 20-Seventeen)

Tim, I think you need to loosen up a bit.  Maybe you're just not hungry enough at the moment, or maybe it's just the day to day rat race.  I know when you run it it will be out of this world, but seems like it may be miles away at the moment.

Well, that banned list isn't as bad as I feared it might have been, but it's scratched 7 bands that I thought I might have been able to sneak in.  Back for some more listening research.

Savatage is going to be a bit of a challenge for me, as I'm not a huge fan of them either, but at least I know, and have, their albums.

You know what else has 5 letters... slays, rules, and  :metal

Awesome... Glass Mind isn't banned!  :neverusethis:

Yes that could be true. I'm more than familar with Pat Benetar though. I have her first three albums. If you think you can blow me away with a deep track from the late 80's or 90's you can try.

I likely won't be sending until Saturday, which should be ok since there's still a couple of spots to fill. I might poke RJ, though he's on vaca with his womang, so I'm sure Roulette's (even as epic as this one) aren't quite top of mind for him atm. 

I refuse to send YT links, as the quality there is always suspect. So, I'll upload to my Google Drive, and share the link with you to download.

Alright, Lonestar is in.

Just waiting on Chad and Kade. No rush guys. I feel like next week is Week 1, and these submissions that I already have are EARLY.

So I did get 5 songs yesterday, and I put them on my iPod. Listened to each 3 times. All good stuff.

One song stood out. It's quite a mashup combining LA Glam/Sleaze with a Power Metal chorus, and a touch of Prog at the end.

Trading PM's with a participant reminded me of a rule that I wanted to use, but forgot to post it originally. I have updated the OP to now include Rule 9:

9.     If you are torn between 2 songs for a round, I will allow everyone to use a Wild Card, which means you can send two, and I'll use the best one. You can only use this Wild Card ONCE and this option, for obvious reasons, will NOT be available for the Winger Round.

Does that make sense? Is that fair?

If those who have already sent for Round 1 want to use their Wild Card in this round, you can send another song.

OK - I was thinking more at the lower end anyway.  My question was more about if less than 10 mins is okay if I still consider it "epic".   We all have our own definitions of that term I suppose - some are more focused on length (like the king :lol) and others it's more about the vibe/structure of the song.

EVERY song has grown on me. And the CD has a great flow.

3 of you tried to sneak some growls by me. I have come to terms with two of them, but the third one still seems a little out of place. And by out of place, I mean they are really not necessary.

I will say that the song I liked the least on the first listen is likely going to end up in the Top 3. It's like musical crack. Literally.

To be fair, my submission isn't so much growls, as 'not totally clean'.  The lyrics are clearly recognizable, and completely appropriate given the theme of the song.  IE, I hoping I'm not the 'unnecessary' one.

I'm going to start my write ups today and will post tomorrow after work.
I would love to get the Savatage Tunes by Tuesday afternoon.

Also, I banned the title track to Hall Of The Mountain King. I actually think that song is pretty decent. I am also banning the title track to Gutter Ballet. That song sucks!

Anyway, with write ups going up tomorrow, I thought you guys would like to see your scores. Here they are:













9.5
9.0

Not a lot of spread between first and worst.

Honestly all of the songs were excellent.

I hesitated throwing out a 9.5, but I wanted to shift the scale from 7.5-9.0 to 8.0-9.5 because:
1. I hated starting anyone off with a 7.5, and
2. You're all losing points in Round 5, so I figured it'd even out

Of the 3 songs with growls, er not clean :yeahright vocals, we have an 8.0, 8.5, and 9.0.

Round 1

b5150-Twisted Tower Dire-The Reflecting Pool/Crest Of The Martyrs

This isnít the first Iíve heard of TTD. Back in the early/mid 00ís, I used to listen to a weekly web cast and they played them all the time. Not sure why I never followed up. Real solid East Coast metal.
This was the longest submission in the round. Starts off with a little mellow build up and then breaks into probably the most classic metal track of the round. Starting my own Roulette, with this the first song submitted and heard, I know this experience will be a treat.

9.0

Senecadawg2-Dynazty-Starlight

When I saw the bandís name, I didnít have very high expectations. This song ended up being my favorite this round. Starts out with a little LA Glam/Sleaze feel, sports a Power Metal chorus, a short but absolutely ripping guitar solo, and a touch of prog at the very end. As every other song in the roulette grew on me, I kept waiting for this one tom lose its luster. It never did. Track of the round!

9.5

Evermind-Bloodbound-Stanic Panic

WTF kind of title is Satanic Panic?  :lol
Bloodbound is a band that Iíve been meaning to check out for a while. Their singer, Patrick Johanson, is awesome on the Shadowquest album released earlier this year. This kind of song is exactly what I envisioned for Round 1. The verses are straight off of Painkiller and the chorus reminds me of Russian Roulette era Accept. Right in my wheelhouse!

8.5

jjrock88-Lethal-Waiting On The Kill   

JJ didnít disappoint. I was expecting something bad ass and I got it. Lethal is a rather obscure metal band, from Kentucky (of all places) that I can tell. Not a ton of info out there on them. The wiki article compares them to Queensryche and Crimson Glory, so this must be the same band. JJ mentioned a classic Sacred Warrior comparison, and I think that fits perfectly. The vocals arenít as good as those three bands, but I get the comparison. I will say that I listened to this song the most, because it had the handicap of having the worst sound. Not sure if it was the YT link, or the production. Maybe both.

8.0

Kingshmegland-Doubledrive-Track #7

Probably the most mainstream band submitted. I know that Joe has an ďeverymanísĒ taste in music, which could cumulatively concern me in this roulette. But this song was not out of place. My CD had great flow and this song sat dead center. It was actually a refreshing listen. Kind of Kings Xish.
Not sure what is a worse title, Satanic Panic or this one!

8.0

Big Hath-Bride-Everybody Knows My Name

Interesting song here. Has a wicked GnR vibe to it. Having just gone through a big GnR kick, this was a good time to receive this song. According to the bandís wiki page, theyíve been around quite a while, and also come from Kentucky.  Apparently theyíre Christian too. Iím interested to hear more from these guys.

8.0

Lonestar-Destrage-Destroy Create Transform Sublimate

WTF did you send me, man?  :lol Yikes. I know RJ is a chef, but all I could think of is that there was a music version of Chopped, this would be one fucked up basket. Easily my least favorite song in the round on first listen, but this grew on me like a fungus. Itís like musical crack. Lots going on. A risk with the growls, but this song had so much to offer. Loved where it went the second half, as it really lifted the track.
As much as I feel the need to warn against growls, the risk here paid off.

9.0

Jingle.Boy-Star One-Human See Human Do

Like Ruslanís submission, this is exactly the type of song I was envisioning for this first round.  Fast upbeat and to the point. Excellent vocals on this especially Damien Wilson. Tried sneaking those Swano vocals by me, and on first listen, I hated it, but on subsequent listens, I thought they worked perfectly with those eerie keyboards.  Would definitely be interested in hearing more from this album.

8.5

Wolfking-Blessed By A Broken Heart-Shut Up And Rock

This is a really cool tune that brought me back to 1984. Classic 80ís hard rock reproduced with a great modern sound. Did not get the growls in that first verse at all, but thankfully, the other vocals aside from that were excellent. I thought the Lemmy style vocals after the guitar solo were fine. This tune made a great Round 1 CD closer.

8.0

Interesting to see Dynazty take out the round - one of the most powerful vocalists of the current generation - but I never thought of them for this roulette.

I am surprised you didn't know Lethal Tim..........also check out Fire In Your Skin from their full studio album Programmed - killer song.  And if memory serves correct it has better production than the EP from which Jay's track came.

So how are we playing this?............once an artist is mentioned it is banned from here on in?

Round 3..Guitar Hero Instrumental Round
The only Guitar Instrumental albums I have belong to Michael Schenker and Uli Roth. I know there are TONS of great albums out there. Let me hear them.  And while Steve Vai is most certainly allowed, please donít send me The Attitude Song. I have that.

Ok, so I have some questions on this round now that we need to start prepping.  Do you want a song from an album/artist that is the guitarist, or is an instrumental band ok (with a kickass guitar contribution)?  Are you looking for the 'named' guitar legends, or is someone current/not relatively known ok?  Are some minimal vocals or spoken parts ok?

Just looking for the guide posts here.

That Dynazty song deserves to take out the round IMO, amazing.

A bit gutted to have the lowest score though.

To be fair 1.5 was the spread.  It's like being tied for last place in the world bukkake competition.  You still gave it your all, and performed like a champ.  Nothing to be ashamed of.  Now go cleanup, and surely you'll beat at least me in this round - you're far more knowledgable with Sava than I am.

Did you have a big affinity for classic prog stuff?

Jon Oliva: I love it. Yeah, that's my favorite music. I mean, I guess maybe that's when I was learning everything, I mean. Those bands like that, Yes, Queen, the Beatles, Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, those are all...I mean, that's all I did when I was (laughs) a teenager and stuff. That's all I did was play to those records over and over, about 10 million times. Dude I played them so much I used to have to go out and buy doubles of the records cause I wore them out. So that's how I kinda learned how to play. Those guys were my teachers basically

http://www.rocknworld.com/morley/06/JonOliva.shtml


Quote
Who would you say are some of your favorite singers and also songwriters?

Jon:   Beatles, obviously. Freddie Mercury - the earlier Queen stuff I liked a lot. Man, there's so many. Pete Townsend is a brilliant songwriter. A lot of the Deep Purple. I mean, Black Sabbath, Tony Iommi, god, he's the hard rock riff master, he's the messiah. I don't think there would be heavy metal if it wasn't for Tony Iommi and Black Sabbath. They were very inspirational to me.

Sabbath was the band that turned me on to heavy music. Before I heard Sabbath, all I did was play the Beatle records and learn. The Beatles taught me how to sing and how to play instruments, but it was Sabbath that turned in to where we started cranking out songs like "Sirens" and "City Beneath the Surface" and things like that, which were waaaay heavier than anything we had ever done. They were like the teachers of the hard rock. And Deep Purple, as well. It was a very tough competition there going on with who I liked more. Some albums of Sabbath I liked better, then Deep Purple's album came out and I didn't like it as much. And then they would switch, the next Sabbath album would come out, and then they'd put another album out and I'd like that one better.

Very split mix, and I don't think that will flow the best.  But Savatage are so varied in their work, it would be hard to get a solid consistent mix of all eras and only 10 songs.  Only one song from the Gutter Ballet/Streets combo, which is interesting.   4 from Edge of Thorns to, which shows the strength of the album.

I was wondering if anyone would go DWD/Magellan and obviously not.

Are we allowed to post our rankings here?  I'd rank them;

He Carves His Stone
Follow Me
Believe
Miles Away
Morphine Child
Strange Wings
Handful of Rain
By The Grace of the Witch

Jon was very involved in those albums .........writer, player , co-producer etc...     From memory there were a number of reasons cited but mostly :

- he was having some vocal issues at the time
- he wanted to invest time in some side projects he was working on like Doctor Butcher and a musical called Romanov which AFAIK was never done and is to eventually be part of a TSO release.  I don't follow TSO closely so I may be wrong.

I believe Jon's vocals just couldn't keep up with the touring schedule and he felt is was getting weaker over time.  I think he also felt a bit responsible for the band not breaking into a bigger market.  I think Zak's vox they thought might have more mainstream appeal.  I think all in all, Jon just wanted to take a backseat in the band.  I don't think there was anything major behind the whole thing really.

And yeah, Jon plays everything on HOR except the solos, done by Alex Skolnick.  That was more like a solo album for Jon I think.

I guess this makes sense, but I didn't know it was a direct reason why he stepped down.  I'll have to read through the Edge of Thorns remaster booklet, it has the whole history behind the album.

Dark Master could probably fill us in though.

From the horse's mouth (Jon's website)

Citing that he reached his musical peak with the release of Streets, Jon officially stepped down as lead singer for Savatage following the end of the album's tour in 1992. By stepping aside as lead singer, it allowed Jon more time to focus on other projects that were in development around that time, including "Romanov" and Doctor Butcher. Jon still remained a very important part of Savatage during the Edge of Thorns writing and recording processes, and helped select new singer Zak Stevens. Jon wrote and played on every song on the album, as well as being its co-producer with Paul O'Neill.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette-All Hail The Mighty Savatage!!
Post by: wolfking on August 04, 2015, 06:54:05 AM
Yeah, I guess, I thought Doctor Butcher came out later than it did.  Then looked up and it was 1994 so makes perfect sense.

I swear I also remember reading that Jon thought his vox held the band reaching a wider audience and Zak might help their popularity.  Gotta look into that.

That's quite an interesting transition. Zak is obviously a better singer, but do you think he lacks the personality in his voice that Jon has?

For sure............and Jon has quite a nice clean voice when he wants to.

I find Zak quite awkward in his lower register sometimes - almost sounds flat even though he's not.  I prefer him when he's belting it out in his upper register.

And I prefer the music during Jon's era too - Edge of Thorns aside .

I don't know if I'd call it awkward or flat, but I always thought of it as generic.

So why did Jon step to the background for Edge Of Thorns?
He was obviously very involved given that according to wiki, he played just about every instrument on Handful Of Rain?

Hope you don't mind if I drop in to comment on this  :P

Jon blew his voice out during the Streets tour.  Toward the end, his voice started to give, and he would be hacking up blood on the side of the stage during and after shows.  At one point he literally lost his voice for a few days and couldn't even speak.  After a couple of doctor's appointments, he decided to step down as lead vocalist lest he loose his voice forever. 

That being said, it was always intended that once his voice was healed, he would come back, so when choosing a new singer, they deliberately wanted someone who sounded quite different, because eventually, they would have the two singers side by side.  Zak's smooth voice with his bluesy Southern drawl not only contrasted sharply to Jon's more screamy metal vocals, but hi more commercially palatable sound (and good looks; the ladies do love Zak) brought the band to their commercial peak with EOT.

Beyond that, though, Jon also wanted to use the time off to branch out into new projects.  He stated up Romanov (which evolved into TSO) during this period, and when his voice was strong enough to sing on an album (although still not ready for a full tour) he did the Doctor Butcher albums with Caffery.  It was intended that Jon and Caffery would rejoin the band together for the next album around 1995.

Unfortunately, Criss died, and that threw everything out of balance.  Jon sank into a deep depression, and was only pulled out of it by working with Paul on the next record.  Originally they just wanted to do one song (Alone You Breathe) as a tribute to Criss, but the label would only take a full album.  At the time, the rest of the band was so in shock from the death of Criss, they were not yet ready to do a new record.  For all intents and purposes, there was no band at the time, just Jon, so he just started recording everything himself.  He did everything but the lead vocals (he said they had to "bribe" Zak to come back) and some of the more technical guitar solos (Caffery had been asked, but Caffery was still not yet ready to step into Criss Oliva's shoes) so Alex Skolnik of Testament, who had been a friend of Criss, came in to fill that void, albeit only briefly. 

Eventually, Middleton made his way back to the band.  Wacholz only did promos and the music video for the title track.  Once it became obvious the record wasn;t going to be the success of EOT, he ditched Savatage, and Zak recommended Jeff Plate from his old band Wikked Witch.  Skolnik left after the tour, and Pitrellit was brought in as the new guitarist, forming the lineup that made Dead Winter Dead, The Wake of Magellan, and basically became TSO.  The rest they say is history...

No, not at all. Drop in anytime!

That was a great synopsis and I appreciate it. Definitely clears up the band's history for me.

Though I'm an old school metal fan, I have just never been into Savatage.
My first real experience with them was actually seeing them live, opening for Dio/Megadeth in late '87. I thought they were absolutely horrible, mainly the fat singer who just screamed uncontrollably for what felt like their entire set. He had this long purple cape or robe and I always referred to him as a possessed Barney, hence the :
(http://i.ytimg.com/vi/ZYJu7wzhwfM/hqdefault.jpg)
...at the start of the round.

I remember playing the title track from Hall on my radio show in college, but I could never get past the live experience and vocals to get into the album. I didn't try real hard.

A few years ago, I downloaded their discog from a torrent site. I regret doing so because I believe that unless you buy or invest something into it, you really don't get much out of it. I tried Hall and Gutter Ballet and they still didn't do anything for me.
I will say that I thought their visions and ambitions were outstanding, but felt they didn't possess the chops to execute them. I actually felt the playing let down those albums.
I then sampled some Zak stuff, but it felt way too generic. At least those earlier albums had some flavor.
Believe it or not, most of their albums are still on my iPod. They've always been a click away from me.

But way too many people around here that I respect their musical tastes immensely swear by Savatage. I decided to dedicate a round to them in my Roulette. This way everyone could personally recommend a track, and tell me what they like about it. Nearly everyone has done so.

In all our discussions around Savatage ,that is the one thing I cannot understand.  Perhaps we have different definitions of "chops" but from my experience playing some of the songs I can tell you that on average the Savatage stuff was harder to play than your average Maiden or Van Halen track.  So from a guitaring viewpoint I have trouble understanding this "lack of chops" concept.

Are you referring more to songwriting chops.......turning the concepts into great songs?  That is very subjective and open to interpretation but , in my mind at least (if we're talking playing chops) , the musical talent of Criss in particular is less up for debate.

Hmm..........I'm hungry now with all this talk of chops.

I can see that Chris Oliva is pretty good. I am getting that.
Maybe it's the vocals (Jon era). Maybe it's the drums. Maybe it's the production. I felt like maybe they were too much of a straightforward metal band to pull off what they were trying to do, and I'm looking at Streets and Gutter Ballet. Even a little of Hall.
Opinions are changing for sure, but I felt like when I heard those albums that there was something holding them back.

Speaking from the viewpoint of one who had never dug into Savatage at all, I totally see what you mean Tim. In searching for a song for this roulette, I was fairly underwhelmed at everything I heard on first listen. Some of it did grow, and I've heard nothing but praises about Streets concept from my PPUSA friends where Jon performed it in it's entirety, but there was a certain roughness to it that did little for me.

Almost in the same boat.  I'd tried their albums off and on over the years since I first saw TSO in concert 7 years ago.  It was always enjoyable, and some of it even excellent - but I was rarely compelled to actively seek out listening to them.  I definitely prefer Zak over Jon vocally.

I can see that Chris Oliva is pretty good. I am getting that.
Maybe it's the vocals (Jon era). Maybe it's the drums. Maybe it's the production. I felt like maybe they were too much of a straightforward metal band to pull off what they were trying to do, and I'm looking at Streets and Gutter Ballet. Even a little of Hall.
Opinions are changing for sure, but I felt like when I heard those albums that there was something holding them back.

I didn't have a lot of time earlier after I made my post (I had a lot of shit to do), but I did have a chance to catch this and had some time to think about while going about my day.

First off, I think, at least instrumentally, Savatage's chops are above reproach.  I wouldn't put them in the same league as, say, Dream Theater or Symphony X, but just from listening to their albums and seeing various members of the band play live (especially in TSO), it's clear they have musical talent in spades.  Criss Oliva was a special sort of genius, but the other guitarists who followed in his wake (Caffery, Skolnik, Pitrelli) are all world class shredders in their own right.  And while the band's drum and bass section tends to get a bit overlooked, I feel there was, and still is, a lot of technical skill there as well.  From the unorthodox beats of songs like 24 Hours Ago to latter day groove-fests like the title cut from The Wake Of Magellan, it's clear that Middleton, Plate and Doc were all masters of their instruments. 

Now vocally, Savatage is very much an acquired taste, and I think this is where a lot of people start to have issues with the band.  Jon's take on singing is unique, to say the least, and while I like it, I totally understand why others don't.  He has a lot of range, both in terms of octaves and tone (he has this weird ability to morph his voice like a cartoon voice actor), but his lack of formal training led him to create his own way of singing, which due to his reliance on screams is why he blew out his voice in 1992.  He was always inconsistent live, having good nights and bad, and it's unfortunate he didn't get any professional direction before damaging his voice.

Now Zak is a totally different creature entirely.  His voice was much more refined, and it certainly helped Savatage gain more mainstream respect in the 90's.  At the same time, though, the blues-and-country roots in his singing style seemed to put off a lot of fans from a more metal musical background, and I have seen it said that his voice made the band too commercially friendly, too smooth, and too safe.  Again, this is largely a matter of taste, and I personally happen to like Zak's voice a lot, but, as with Jon, I can understand why others do not.  I do think it must be said that his delivery of Jon-era songs was rather hit or miss.  His Southern drawl works very well on some songs (especially Jesus Saves) and not so well on others.  There is a reason Savatage limited their performance of pre-Edge of Thorns tracks before Jon started singing again more frequently later in the band's career.

Songwriting, much like vocals, is largely subjective.  That being said, for many Savatage fans, the songwriting is one of the best things about this band, and while the bulk of the compositional work can be credited to Jon, I fell this is where Paul's influence helped the band to shine the most.  Starting with Hall Of The Mountain King, the band, little by little, became much more progressive and ambitious in their works, and Paul's collaborations with the Olivas really blossomed during the Gutter Ballet and Streets era, pushing them into musical realms far beyond what was explored by most of their contemporaries.  It was that same ambition that led them to create so many rock operas, and ultimately led to the creation of TSO. 

That being said, I think it is worth noting that by the later period of the band's career, their reach was starting to exceed their grasp.  Albums like Dead Winter Dead and The Wake of Magellan, with layers upon layers of vocal melodies and orchestrations, were no less complex then their concurrent TSO siblings.  And yet, from a creative stand point, the band's set up, with only two singers and five full time musicians, limited their ability to fully explore the musical territory into which they were delving.  It's not too difficult to see why TSO was a much better vehicle for that sort of music.  Even as far back as Streets, Jon and Paul were beginning to realize their ambitions were a bit too grandiose for a simple heavy metal band, hence the creation of Romanov and, ultimately, TSO. 

This is where the disparity between the band's vision and their abilities becomes most apparent.  It's not so much that the members lacked the quality of talent; they lacked the quantity.  Tanking an orchestra on the road is obscenely expensive, and was far beyond the resources of Savatage. The band's symphonic ambitions were limited, especially live, by practicality. Likewise, rock operas with only one or two singers become, in effect, just concept albums with narratives.  Even with the relative diversity of vocal styles of which Jon was capable, creatively, the band was still left in want of more.  More singers, more instruments...

All that can only be accomplished with a bigger budget, and given how much Savatage struggled to find commercial success, their budgetary constraints had to be considerable.  The later Savatage albums literally cost millions of dollars to make, and yet the band was still slugging it out in clubs.  Where is the room on a club stage for an orchestra and 24 singers?  Where does a band at that level get the money to even attempt such a thing?

Ultimately, tragically, the band's vision far outstripped what they could actually do, at least as a simple heavy metal band with only 4-6 guys.  Worse, their stigma as just being a simple metal band hurt their commercial appeal, and caused a lot of people to overlook their songwriting prowess that extended far beyond such easy genrefication, which in turn limited their ability to make the money they needed to bring their dreams to fruition. 

In the end, they found a solution to their problems, and the only thing it cost them was their name...

Post by: The Dark Master on August 04, 2015, 06:14:28 PM
TAC, you're welcome, and of course I'm always more then happy to talk about Savatage.   ;)

Top 5 Savatage songs:

1: Gutter Ballet
2: Hall of the Mountain King
3: The Wake of Magellan
4: Edge of Thorns
5: Chance

Honourable mentions to Believe, Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) and Morphine Child

Top 3 Savatage albums:

1: Dead Winter Dead (Streets was my #1 for a long time, but over the years, I've come to appreciate DWD much more, as it just seems better polished and refined, the story is a bit more well thought out and original, and it appeals equally to my metal and classical sides.  Plus, this was the album with Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24), single-handedly spawning TSO in it's wake.  The legacy and significance of DWD cannot be overstated.)

2: Streets- A Rock Opera (Still awesome, and IMO the pinnacle of Jon Oliva fronted Savatage)

3: This is really tough.  It's pretty much a toss up between Gutter Ballet and The Wake of Magellan.  Gutter Ballet is, IMO, where Savatage became truly great (although they were showing signs of greatness on Hall of the Mountain King), plus GB has many of my favourite songs by the band, such as the title track, When the Crowds Are Gone, and Hounds.  The Wake of Magellan was one of the Savatage albums that took me a long time to fully appreciate, but over the years it has become a highlight of their discography in my eyes.  It has some excellent high points, such as Morning Sun, the title track, and The Storm, but what really makes it stand out to me is how seamlessly the whole thing flows together.  While GB may have better individual songs, with TWOM, much like DWD, I feel the whole of the album is greater then the sum of it's parts.  Ultimately, I think I may have to go with Magellan because it is overall a more solid album, although the individual songs of Gutter Ballet stand out more, and I've been leaning more towards later Savatage over the past few years anyways.  Still, I'd give an honourable mention to Gutter Ballet.

Dark Master, if you're down with it, you would be perfect to start a Savatage discography thread
I would absolutely follow.

Ok, well, I'll definitely get started on that soon.  I will probably start it on Friday when I have some time to give Sirens some serious attention and do a write up to get the ball rolling.

Not a lot of love for tracks from Streets, I've noticed.

It's my favorite Savatage album and Believe is my favorite track on the album (and maybe... just maybe my submission this round  ;)). Also love Jesus Saves, Tonight He Grins Again, Can You Hear Me Now and Somewhere in Time.

But like I said before, I'm not crazy about the rest of their music. Hall of the Mountain King is good, from the bits I've heard, but it doesn't call to me like Streets. And I've not heard Gutter Ballet or Edge of Thorns, apart from the title track on the former.

I like pretty much everything on my fave albums listed so Streets is up there for sure .  And in terms of songs .........perhaps the best don't stand out to me quite as much due to the format.  Having said that I would take Streets over SFAM in a heartbeat in terms of my liking for the individual songs.

If you haven't heard Gutter Ballet seneca , you really need to hear the stuff like When The Crowds Are Gone.  Gutter Ballet is sorta half HoTMK and half Streets in terms of the straight metal/theatrical mix and that's why I like it so much - best of both worlds.

Round 3..Guitar Hero Instrumental Round
The only Guitar Instrumental albums I have belong to Michael Schenker and Uli Roth. I know there are TONS of great albums out there. Let me hear them.  And while Steve Vai is most certainly allowed, please donít send me The Attitude Song. I have that.

Ok, so I have some questions on this round now that we need to start prepping.  Do you want a song from an album/artist that is the guitarist, or is an instrumental band ok (with a kickass guitar contribution)?  Are you looking for the 'named' guitar legends, or is someone current/not relatively known ok?  Are some minimal vocals or spoken parts ok?

Just looking for the guide posts here.

For the Guitar Hero Instrumental round, I guess I envision it like the Savatage round. I don't really want to treat it as a standard instrumental round where a vocal band spits out the random instrumental. When I think if guitar heroes, I'm thinking Vai, Macalpine, that sort of thing. Just looking for songs in that genre.
I don't want vocals on it. I might let some brief spoken word get by.

Feel free to ask more specific questions or shoot me a PM.


Savatage Results will be up after work so you can start sending for the next round anytime. I'd live to get them in by Friday afternoon.

I understand where people are coming from in finding Savatage a tough band to get into, but for me, I was hooked instantly, on every single era.  They were such an amazing band to discover and every album showcased something new.

I find the lack of chops comment a bit baffling also.  As Brent said, they is much more going on in their songs than your standard metal band at the time.

I don't really want to treat it as a standard instrumental round where a vocal band spits out the random instrumental. When I think if guitar heroes, I'm thinking Vai, Macalpine, that sort of thing. Just looking for songs in that genre.
I don't want vocals on it. I might let some brief spoken word get by.

What I'm leaning towards might have some spoken samples/dialog, but not lyrics.

How set are you in the "named" guitar hero's?  Again, I'm considering someone modern and pretty unknown - a hero in the making.

I just want to say that this round was a rousing success. I can definitely cross Savatage on my Bands I Don't Care For list. This has been a great experience. For anyone running a roulette, if there is a band that you are on the fence on, you might want to dedicate a round to them. With Savatage, I had heard enough to form the opinion that I wasn't interested, yet not so much that anything submitted wouldn't be a totally new experience for me.
After my Roulette, I will be digging in to them pretty good. Heck, I already have at least half of their albums on my iPod already!

And a special Thank You to guest contributor Dark Master. I had considered sending him a PM for this round, but he apparently sniffed it out anyway!

Round 2 Savatage Results:

Evermind-He Carves His Stone

From my brief sampling of Savatage in the past, I do remember hearing this song. This is a great song and an excellent start to my Round 2 Savatage disc. The band goes a number of places in this track. While I donít think Zak has Jonís personality, he whales (no pun intended)on this track. Love the upbeat part in his high register.
Two people sent me this track.

9.0

Big Hath-Lights Out

This is a hot and fiery rocker.  Great guitar solo, and some cool rhythm beneath it. Almost Aerosmith-ish.  Pretty simple compared to some of the other tracks in the round.  Even though itís not the highest score in the round. I still liked it a lot and thereís nothing here that would deter me.
Two people also sent me this track.

8.0

Kingshmegland-Morphine Child

Here is the monster of the Round. The song that is, not who sent it.  :D WOW! I did not expect something like this. This is a phenomenal song. Like heavy metal Marillion. At 10 minutes it goes by pretty fast.  Great execution on this.  Iíve never heard this song before.  Real epic track.

9.5

jjrock88-Strange Wings

A JJ special for sure. Classic metal. I would expect nothing else. I really like this. Pretty straight forward. I like where it goes in the guitar solo. Again, not a stand out track here, but nothing to not like about it.

8.0

Jingle.Boy-Miles Away

Dude, I think you sent me a Winger song. Nah, you didnít cuz this song is awesome. It starts out a little iffy but corrects itself quickly.  Love the ďIíll be runniníĒ part.  Another well built guitar solo here with the band doing nice things underneath.

8.5

Senecadawg2-Believe

So I had the first 5 submissions after 1 day, and listened to them a few times before I got the next 4. (FYI-all songs got equal listens!). When I first got this, a slow Jon era track, I was quite frightened, especially when it started. But it quickly moves into this bombastic and moving piece. And you know what..Jon kills it..in a GOOD way. He doesnít try and be anything else he isnít. He puts on an incredible performance here. Iím a huge Alice Cooper fan, and I totally can hear Alice singing this. A risk here by Nelson, but I really loved this.

9.0

Lonestar-Handful Of Rain

I know this round was a challenge for Lonestar, but I appreciate his effort. Handful Of Rain has some soul to it, but nothing really stood out about it. Itís a decent song and I certainly didnít not like it. But I think it was up against some stronger tunes here.

8.0

Wolfking-Follow Me

The fourth and final entry from Edge Of Thorns. A monster album for you guys! Zak is killer on this. This is a song that I caught myself belting out while driving. Love the Iommi-ish guitar solo later in the song.

8.5

b5150-By The Grace Of The Witch

Well Brent, I didnít know what to do with this. I appreciate the metal nod, but I just plain liked a number of other tracks better. I did sample a couple of other tracks from The Dungeons Are Calling. Definitely pretty raw and shows a band yet to really evolve. Reminded me of old Merciful Fate. Nothing wrong with that!

8.0


Standings:

Senecadawg2-18.5
Kingshmegland-17.5
Evermind-17.5
b5150-17.0
Jingle.boy-17.0
Lonestar-17.0
Wolfking-16.5
jjrock88-16.0
Big Hath-16.0

There was just something about Believe. I didn't mind the vocals, and the music in the song seemed full. In fact, I liked the vocals. He took a real Alice Cooper approach and it resonated with me.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette-Savascores are up!!
Post by: jingle.boy on August 05, 2015, 06:07:59 PM
You should give the TSO version of Believe a go.  THAT version is to die for.  Tim Hockenberry lays down a monster vocal performance.

These rounds are running faster than I expected.  If I go the 'hero in the making' route, I might not be able to send until the weekend - the dude only has two of his songs on YT, but I might not be using those.

Gonna make that Sava playlist.  The Round 1 playlist was pretty sweet.

Seems I get half of the entries for each round right away. I start right in on those so I only have to learn 4 or 5 at a time instead of 9 all at once.
I'm not waiting for all to come in before I begin listening.
But there's no advantage either way. ALL get equal listens.

Agreed... my comment was based on the original expectation it would be a week between rounds.  It's a fine line between rounds being too fast vs too long.  IMO, you're right in the sweet spot of that line.  So long as participants submit in a timely manner, 4-5 days is deal ... again, my opinion.

And I know I'm a culprit right now of not being timely - travel is throwing a wrench into things.

So I'm just waiting for the travelling salesman, but everything I have received is SPECTACULAR! Seriously, this is one hell of a playlist. Way beyond what I expected. I have no idea how I'm going to score this.

I have 10 hour days at work the next 3 days, but then I'm off Tues and Wed. Results will be up Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning at the latest I would expect.

If I could have Round 4 (Open Round) submissions by next Wednesday, that would be great. You can send anytime.

Just catching up with the progress so far has made me revisit Savatage. Great band.
Gutter Ballet was my introduction to them and I loved it. Streets was just awesome. Such a great production. Crisss's guitar never sounded better.
I did struggle a bit with jons vocals but came to accept them.

For me the big difference between the success of tso over Savatage was simply the Christmas element. I'm sure Beethoven s last night didn't sell anywhere near the numbers the Christmas albums did.

Those that have already submitted are clearly insecure about their selections, having to mark their territory as quickly as possible.  RJ and Ruslan are really the only ones that should be worried, not being big Winger fans to begin with - they should get first crack at song selection (unless of course they use the song I want to use  :lol).  The rest of you that have submitted ... well, you're all pussies.

Round 3
Guitar Hero Instrumental Round


Iím sorry for some of the confusion. I just didnít want this to simply be an Instrumental Round. I have never really been into these great guitar players like Vai, Satriani, etc..so I was looking for a good sampler of guitarists of that ilk.

Anyway, I got all of the submissions and was literally blown away by every one. I actually considered giving everyone a 9.0 and calling it a Push.
But I felt that one song definitely stood out,and I kept going back to a couple others.

So here we go:

Senecadawg2- Neal Schon-Bandalero

Nelson was first to submit, and I have to be honest, I wasnít expecting to get Neal Schon in this round. That said, I couldnít have asked for a better first track to my Guitar hero CD. It almost acts as a nice intro. But this is an incredible beautiful and stunning piece. Highly unexpected but much enjoyed.

9.0

b5150 Ė Joe Satriani-One Big Rush
   
Alright. Some Satch!. Now everything (very little) Iíve heard from him is basically a steady drum beat with him plaing over. This is like that, but I really like where he goes with this. Itís as though he is singing verses with his guitar. Memorable hooks all over the place. Definitely a cool driving song, as advertised.

9.0

Evermind-Blackmoreís Night (feat Ritchie Blackmore)-Carry OnÖJon
Evermind deserves extra points as he sent me his selections from a hospital bed! Bravo brother!! He was also the first to use his Wild Card sending this along with David Gilmourís Castellorizon. After one listen, it was an easy choice. Blackmore. This is a great tribute to Jon Lord. Very touching and moving. Iíve been listening to Blackmore my entire life, and there was something very comfortable here. Love the Jon inspired organ part too.

9.0

Lonestar-Alek Darson-Sprockets   

Apparently a Berklee grad, this is what I now expect from Lonestar.  Very chunky and progressive. This kid can play. I think itís amazing to come up with a composition like this. This took a little while to warm up to but this officially kicks this playlist into overdrive.

9.0

jjrock88- Tony Macalpine- Edge Of Insanity

I was really hoping for some Tony Macalpine here. Going all the way back to 1986 for Edge Of Insanity. JJ loves his 80ís!! This one really stuck with me throughout the entire round. It has an infectious feel and some great 80ís shred. Very memorable, and he will be on my exploration list after this is all done. Also, loved the Schenker-ish outro. And you know that hits my sweet spot for sure!

9.5

Big Hath-Racer X (feat Paul Gilbert)-Technical Difficulties

Coupled with TM, this made a great 1-2 punch on my CD. This was also a favorite of the round. Believe it or not, I have never checked out Racer X. And for no good reason. I was amazed at how effortlessly Paul Gilbert makes his playing feel. Love the opening riffage and a classic guitar instrumental. This was a real joy.

9.5

Wolfking- Marco Sfogli ĖStill Hurts

Track of the round. Seriously, it takes the shred, the progressiveness, the melodicness, and the power of this round and packs it all into one track. I absolutely love this song and will definitely be checking this album out.  Really impressive. I wasnít sure what to expect. Iím not nuts about the last few Labrie albums. They do rock pretty good though, Iíll give them that. This is such a great piece I kept going back to it.

10

Kingshmegland-Animals As Leaders (feat Tosin Abasi)- CAFO

Holy Shred, Batman! This is absolutely insane. WTF! These guys can play. This is very intense and a little busy  yet fairly easy to listen to. Iím checking these guys out. I went back and forth on scoring this bitch but Iím going with a 9.5.

9.5

Jingle.Boy-Wasaya (feat Tarek Shehabi)-Garden Of Doubts   

The Guitar Hero CD ends with the longest track at over 7 minutes that gives this whole experience an epic closer. So many great passages in this and really quite a find. Definitely following up here for sure.
Really melodic and inspiring and a complete joy to experience.

9.5

Standings:

Senecadawg2-27.5
Kingshmegland-27.0
Evermind-26.5
Jingle.boy-26.5
Wolfking-26.5
b5150-26.0
Lonestar-26.0
jjrock88-25.5
Big Hath-25.5

Seriously guys, this was really tough. I really agonized over the scoring, and if another track scored higher than yours, it was a really small margin. Every song was absolutely incredible.

Glad you enjoyed... I was pretty leary, since I wouldn't exactly call this guy a shredder.  Knowing I'd be going up against MacAlpine, Satch, Vai (though no one sent him!), Gilbert and the like, I figured I'd 'flank' my competition.

http://wasaya.bandcamp.com/releases

Check his EP out for those that want to listen to what he has to offer - quite diverse, creative, and almost eclectic.

I can't wait to build this playlist... hopefully it's all in Spotify - if not, purchases will be made.


Now it's time to drop the bomb.  Favorite song, from my most beloved musical discovery of the last 10 years.

Post by: wolfking on August 11, 2015, 05:22:47 AM
Wow, you guys know me too well.

Altitudes was actually the first song I thought of and was about to be sent, then TMAC, then for some reason went Sfogli.

Thinking about it now, I'm not sure what steered me away from Becker and TMac.  I think I wanted that bit of technical stuff with the Satch type melody.  I think I was afraid that Becker might have been a bit too shred for Tim, but looking at some of the submissions, probably not

But everyone should remember that they can use their Wild Card and submit two songs for any round (except the Winger Round). Please don't save all of the Wild Cards for the Epic Round. Not sure I need 18 Epics to sift through! :lol

Listening now. WOW. Phenomenal. Like I said, I know there are all these great guitarists out there, but I just don't really gravitate towards any of it.
It's amazing how young he was when this was recorded. Truly a great loss. As great of a loss as Randy Rhoads easily.

Scores a 9.5 on first listen but would've likely fetched a 10!


Title: Re: The TAC Roulette-Shred Scores up!
Post by: wolfking on August 11, 2015, 06:05:27 AM
Win win for me then if I sent it instead. haha.

It is such a great loss.  It's great Jason defied the odds and is still alive, but his talent taken away so brutal and young is such a loss.  The mind boggles at what he would have become if he stayed fit.

Yet another bad assumption on my part  :lol -  Altitudes was my first thought but I decided Tim would likely prefer something a bit more riff based. Nope.

I also considered submitting something I played on many years ago but didn't have the time to muck around tidying up/digitising old tapes.

Here's a great vid of Marco playing Still Hurts Tim for you to check out.

Here's another one of my favs;

Alright folks, sorry for delaying this, the song should be in Tim's PM now. Looking forward to the results! Not looking forward to the next round!

AAL was the first concert I ever went to and CAFO was the first song I ever saw live, some 6 years ago (yes- I'm much younger than you Tim  :lol). I wasn't very familiar with them at the time and I still don't listen to them so much, but I remember being very impressed. It's an interesting choice that I wouldn't have thought about.

I'm excited to see the submissions this next round! Chad's song might be the bomb, but I know he would say the same thing about mine.

I wonder how many people know the band I've sent. If I was playing, say, Shadow Ninja roulette, I would say only Brent. In this roulette, though... well, probably everyone does. :lol

Just want to say that I've had one run through and collectively, it might be a rough round. Hopefully these are all growers.

I have said it, but I'll discuss it again when it's time.

I have never heard a lick after the first album, so I hope that narrows it down a bit. ;D

That's interesting about nothing after the first album - I tend to write off bands like that myself (only so much time) but on a couple of occasions I have been surprised to see how said written off band developed.  Imagine if you wrote off DT after WDADU and missed the best album ever.   Winger's 2nd album might be I&W Mach 2 for all you know  :lol I think it's clearly their worst.

So anyway here's an update:

I will do my write ups when I get home from work Friday afternoon and will post then. Then the You Know What Round will officially be on.
I am reluctantly  ;D requesting the final three submissions by that time.

The Round 4 Open Round has been by far the weakest. I'm expecting MUCH better for the next open round. And I hope no one feels too restricted by the Live Round. It's essentially open, so if a band not on my iPod has a live album, go with it!

Guess we set the bar too high with rounds 1-3?

OK, here are the Round 4 results. I think you guys really set the bar quite high in the first three rounds. At one point this week, I pulled out the Round 1 CD for a listen, so that tells you how I felt. I think some of you will be  :omg: at your scores, and I appreciate you guys sending me some of your favorites, but if you strayed too far from my comfort zone, it may not have worked.

Anyway..here it is:

Round 4

jjrock88 Ė Queen City Kids Ė Girls

This is a quirky little song. Its chorus is fairly catchy but itís repeated too often. Has a nice hook. But I think thereís a reason this band is obscure. Iím sure youíve been listening to this song a long time and have lots of good times attached to it, but honestly, Iím not sure if I heard this in 1982 that I would pay it any attention. Should've sent Blondie!

7.0

senecadawg2 Ė Ayreon-Isolation

Aryeon is one of those bands that I see thrown around here quite  a bit. Iím glad someone sent me one of their tracks. But I was expecting to be blown away, but I just wasnít. I liked the instrumental part quite a bit. Pretty Pink Floyd-ish to me. Sometimes too many voices get in the way for me. It did get better on subsequent listens but I found myself trying too hard to get into it. Love James though. Itíd be awesome to see him on an Avantasia album.

7.5

Lonestar Ė Silent Memorial Ė The Darkest Hour

This is a band that Iíve checked on in the past and are on The List. This tune grew a lot over the course of the week. I really started to get the subtleties in this. I am definitely interested in this album. If this is the best song on the album, I might be disappointed, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

8.0

Kingshmegland Ė Teramaze Ė Transhumanist

Read Lonestarís write up!

8.0

b5150 Ė Crystal Eyes Ė Shadow Rider

On first listen this was the track of the round. In fact, I left it alone for most of the round as I was trying to digest everything else. Classic Maiden inspired metal here. The dual guitars are eerily similar to Maiden, and the nod to Bruceís Darkside Of Aquarius right before the solo was obvious. Definitely right in my wheelhouse.

8.5

Jingle.boy Ė Flaming Row Ė Unearth The Truth

Well, I know how much you love this song, so you might want to stop reading here. First, this is a beautifully done song. Very deep and captivating. But it only seemed to work if I sat down and simply tried to lose myself in it.  I feel like I need to hear more around it, but as a stand alone song, this isnít something Iíd go back to. Again, I felt like I was trying to hard to like it. Iíd be interested to hear something a bit heavier from this album and would certainly follow up any recs you may have.

7.5

Big Hath Ė Epysode ĖObsessions

Read Kingshmeglandís write up!

8.0

Wolfking Ė Borealis Ė Revelation

This is the kind of song that is very easy on the ears. Heavy, Catchy, melodic. It grew on me and eventually caught Brentís song. I looked forward to it when it came on and will look for this album. While it did score well here, I thought it was a pretty safe track from you Wolfie.

8.5

Evermind Ė The Answer Ė Raise A Little Hell

Oh Evermind, this just didnít work with me. I have a hard time with mid tempo plodding rockers unless there is something spectacular going with it, like a great vocal. But this song plods along and doesnít really do anything else. I did think the harmonica/guitar solo was cool, but that was really about it.

7.0

Updated Standings:

Senecadawg2-35.0
Kingshmegland-35.0
Wolfking-35.0
b5150-34.5
Lonestar-34.0
Jingle.boy-34.0
Big Hath-33.5
Evermind-33.5
jjrock88-32.5

I was hoping to do a little better this round, but I can't complain. It was a bit of a risk and I knew it might not pan out. And so long as I'm still on top of the pile, I'm very happy. Hopefully my Winger is not as bad as the rest of the lot.

Well, there goes using Ayreon as an option for the Epic round... Was gonna cheat and everything, using the Bruce-fronted Into the Black Hole!

Shocking scores from some of those songs - Obsessions "moved" me... like in the George Costanza "I think it moved" kinda way.  Silent Memorial....  :hefdaddy  Borealis -  :tup.

Jingle.boy Ė Flaming Row Ė Unearth The Truth

Well, I know how much you love this song, so you might want to stop reading here. First, this is a beautifully done song. Very deep and captivating. But it only seemed to work if I sat down and simply tried to lose myself in it.  I feel like I need to hear more around it, but as a stand alone song, this isnít something Iíd go back to. Again, I felt like I was trying to hard to like it. Iíd be interested to hear something a bit heavier from this album and would certainly follow up any recs you may have.

Totally valid writeup - and demonstrates the risk in using songs from concept albums - like Obsessions too.  Beware though, Rage of Despair has some pretty serious growlie moments.  Listen at your own risk - though it did make me appreciate growls (when they are used appropriately as in this song).

I think with both the Ayreon and Flaming Row, I do plan on investigating more, and would appreciate some more recs. Again, neither song was bad by any stretch.

Guys, so I was thinking. What if we skip the Winger Round and have a Porcupine Tree Round instead?

I'd sooner sit on a porcupine.

As for Ayreon recs, I'm sure you'll get a host.  The Human Equation is my #2 album of all-time (behind I&W), and I'm highly partial to Day 10:Memories and Day 11:Love.  Into the Electric Castle is my 2nd fave - and Across The Rainbow Bridge and/or Isis and Osiris would be my recommendations there.  Although, you may like Into the Black Hole (as I mentioned, Dickinson provides the vocals).

Flaming Row only has two albums out - and honestly, Elinoire (the first) does require a full commitment - hard to pick an individual track.  If you want to try an individual track from their 2nd album (Mirage - A Portrayal of Figures), Aim L45 and Pictures are my two favorites.

The Human Equation is definitely my first choice, and recommendation, for Ayreon. And yes, it is a bit off to isolate one of the tracks for a roulette. I understand the score, if for no other reason than that.

What's your deal with Porcupine Tree?

PT is another band that I do not get. Now I've heard very little, but a guy at work gave me a copy of Deadwing. I thought Arriving Somewhere and Something Beautiful were pretty decent songs but I did not care for the rest. I did not like the vocals. Thought they came off as pompous British kind of thing. I get they're good musicians and all that but I would really need to hear some more. Problem is, I'm not all that motivated to do so.

I came very close to actually having a Porcupine Tree Round in this roulette, but ultimately decided to have a Savatage one.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette-Round 4 Results up!

OK Boys! IT IS ON!!!!!!!


THE WINGER ROUND!!!


A lot of people have asked me what's the deal with Winger. My name is TAC and this is my story.

OK..Hope you guys wonít find this too long, but I have to start the Winger Round with my true discovery of Alice Cooper.
I happened to be home from college on the weekend of Halloween 1986. It was my Freshman year. MTV was airing Aliceís show from Detroit that night. Now I wasnít into Alice at the time. In fact, this was his comeback after being out of the spotlight for 5 years. Anyway, not sure why, but I just had to watch. You might call it Special Forces at work.
I was blown away, not just by Alice, but by his incredible band of top notch metal musicians. This was Heavy Metal Alice, and the metalized versions of Welcome To My Nightmare, Billion Dollar Babies, and The Ballad Of Dwight Fry and others were incredible. Found out they were playing a couple of weeks later in Worcester and I bought tickets. Saw the show. Mind blown.
I bought his new album Constrictor.  Going through the album credits, I see among others, the bass playerís name is Kip Winger. Yup, heís the bassist in the touring band too. Among the touring band (which also included Kane Roberts and Ken Mary!), was a keyboard player name Paul Taylor.
Alice came back to the area again, playing the Providence Civic Center on 2/17/87. I snapped some great pics of this show, including one this of his bass player:
(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z246/TACPics/KW.jpg) (http://s195.photobucket.com/user/TACPics/media/KW.jpg.html)


A few months later, Aliceís new album, Raise Your Fist And Yell, was released. Again, the band on the album is Roberts/Mary/Winger/Taylor. This album is incredible, and if youíve never heard it, check out Roses On White Lace. Saw Alice at the Boston Garden on 11/17/87. The 3rd time seeing him in a year.
This time, he had another bassist playing, but essentially had the same band. Got this shot with Paul Taylor at the after show party:

(http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z246/TACPics/PT.jpg) (http://s195.photobucket.com/user/TACPics/media/PT.jpg.html)

(For the record,  Iím 19 in this picture. I actually had a can of Heineken in my other hand.)

Now I went full bore on Alice Cooper while in college, but Iíve always been fascinated about the incredible talent he always puts around him.
So a year or so later, I read that Kip Winger and Paul Taylor would be teaming up with Rod Morganstein (who I already know is a beast) and a hot shot new guitarist named Reb Beech, I was teeming with anticipation. This will have to be great, I though.

As soon as the album is released I run out and buy the tape. OK it has a cheesy cover, but thereís no way this is going to suck, could it?
As soon as I started listening, I thought the manufacturer put the wrong tape in the cassette. WTF was this horseshit? I was just getting back into thrash, listening to Helloween, Slayer, Metallica a lot during this time. Not to mention Iron Maiden, Queensryche..

But this is such cheesy and fake hair metal. Say what you want about Poison, and yes I think they sucked too, but at least I felt a certain genuineness about them. With Winger, it was so fake. Such posing. They simply became the poster children for all that was wrong in music at that time. Hair Metal, to me, jumped the shark with Winger. I felt they made a complete mockery of the whole scene. I KNEW they were better musicians than this. And I didnít appreciate the expectations and the money I spent on this piece of shit.

Wingerís first album was literally the most disappointed I have ever been in an album. For the first time I felt truly let down by music. It made a scar.
To me, they just would always represent all that was wrong in music. I know through time, they would make a number of albums. And there are people I respect on this forum and others that like them and say they have some great music. Maybe they do, maybe they donít. Iíll never know. That is, until now.

If this truly is the case, then there is a mental (audio) block at you being able to like this music just because it's "Winger" (which I can understand - play me some Opeth, and I'm bound to be the same way).  Given your tastes, there should've been something in that list that was palatable.  9 of us can't be entirely wrong (or even 6... since 3 aren't big Winger fans either).

Or maybe you're just trolling us.

Ok I'll give some serious observations after three listens each.

There are a few good tunes.
They sure can write vocal melodies.
The lyrics are terrible.
Some great guitar solos but way too short.
With the top notch musicianship in the band, I would expect more interesting musical breaks.
Rod Morganstein is criminally under used. Apparently it's easier to get laid hanging around Kip than it is with Steve Morse.
I didn't realize Marc Storace sang for Winger too! ;D

You guys AGAIN did a great job. There's really no song that absolutely sucks. There ARE  some that are better than others though.

Lyrics - whatever you do, don't listen to their latest song - Midnight Driver of a Love Machine (I'm not making that up).
Guitar solo's - check out the outro solo in Witness - another ballad, and a close 3rd in what I would've sent.  Epic is the only way to describe that solo.  Best in the discography, imo.
Rod getting pussy - clearly.  Same could be said about hanging with Jordan Rudess I'm sure.

For guitar solos, as Chad said, Witness is one to listen to, as is Out of This World from the last album.  The live version of Generica that was released on the live album and DVD, which I think was in 2007.  That has some of the best live impro jamming I've ever heard.

Seriously, listening only started on Friday. Results will be posted tomorrow.

OK Serious housekeeping update!


Winger results will be posted in the morning. I would love to get all Round 6 (Open Round) submissions by tomorrow afternoon if at all possible. I will be unable to do any listening this coming weekend and I would like to get a jump on it to keep the pace up. Cool?

Don't forget, you can use a Wild card if you're stuck between two songs.

Will probably use my wild card for this round.  Not cause I'm doubting my possible selections, just don't think it's fair to use it for the epic round.  Tim, you should ban the wild card for the epic round IMO.

Also, what's the go with the live round, it still has to be from bands you've never heard of right?

We all have our definitions of what constitutes "epic" and it's not all to do with filling in time..................Evermind will be here shortly to put you straight.  :P  IMHO it is more than possible to have an epic somewhere around the 7-10 min range..............if it is epic :lol .

I actually absolutely agree Brent.  I don't know what I was talking about to be honest.

EDIT:  I know what it was, I thought the epic round time length for the songs was 8-10 minutes.  I went back and saw that it's 10-15.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette- Bosk, I hope DTF has insurance!!
Post by: bl5150 on August 17, 2015, 07:06:07 PM
I agree Kade that it is fair to expect people to be reasonable if they intend using the epic round as a wild card round.  I have three epics I am considering and the times are something like 7 mins, 9 mins and 15 mins.   I will either do the 15 alone or the 7+9 mins.........most likely the latter.

Imagine all the Winger fun we can have waiting for those results.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette- Bosk, I hope DTF has insurance!!
Post by: wolfking on August 17, 2015, 07:13:41 PM
Yeah, righto, as long as someone doesn't send 2 15 minute epics, I think 2 under 10 minutes is reasonable then.

And yes, so much Winger fun to be had.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette- Bosk, I hope DTF has insurance!!
Post by: TAC on August 17, 2015, 07:19:44 PM

About the epics, yeah, I know some epic songs shorter than 10 minutes, and I know some songs over 15 minutes that aren't really epic if you ask me. I'll try to send something within 10-15 minutes range, but I'm not sure what yet.

Title: Re: The TAC Roulette- Bosk, I hope DTF has insurance!!
Post by: TAC on August 18, 2015, 09:41:35 AM
First off, thank you everyone for my Winger Intervention. It was a success!!
Now I am not running out to buy a Winger CD, but at least I am on the road to recovery.

Has anyone ever been so wronged that it doesn't matter what a person does, they can never make amends?
Well, I was and I am happy to say that, Kip, you are now forgiven.

Some general observations:
The music was a lot heavier than I was expecting.
The vocals were much better than I thought they would be.
I'm still not sure where the band is "coming from".
Half the songs came from one album, but I still feel like I got a sprinkling of their discog. I'd be interested in hearing more from IV and Karma.

So, sorry to say that the Winger Round is officially over. Bosk, you may now change everyone back. Except Wolfking!  ;D

I actually liked every song. Here are the Results:

Kingshmegland Ė M16

So the first Winger track I hear is M16. Starts off pretty heavy. Then I hear ďCharlie FoxtrotĒ and Iím thinking good grief. But other than those two words, this song is pretty cool. Love the vocals on it. Now a Winger song about war is not what I was expecting. But this song serves as a great opener to the round and definitely has me primed for more. After listening to M16, I am intrigued.

-1.0

b5150 Ė Pull Me Under

M16 leads into Pull Me Under and this goes next level. I had no idea Winger could have a track this cool. Love the standard riff (Stand Up And Shout/Two Minutes To Midnight/Power And The Glory, etcÖ).  A real hot rocker (the song not Kip) with a great but short solo. This song stuck in my head. Memorable chorus and really a song right up my alley. Great choice.

-.5

jjrock88 Ė Hell To Pay

Last round aside, JJ continues his consistent delivery of rockers. Iím thinking if this was Krokus, it would be awesome. So if itís Winger, canít it be awesome too? It sure can. And I love the Alice Cooper style bridge. Iím 3 songs in and Iím thinking we might have a better round than the previous one! Again, a great choice to get me interested.

-.5

Evermind Ė Spell Iím Under

OK. Power Ballad. Uh oh! Another Krokus sounding tune. This is actually very catchy and it stays in my head. Great melodies. But some of these lyrics are pukeworthy! ďWoman, how deep can I go, with every inch grows a new obsession.Ē Yuck!! That said, surprisingly, I really enjoyed this.

-1.0

Senecadawg2 Ė Junkyard Dog (Tears On Stone)

Finally some Morganstein greatness in the beginning of Junkyard Dog. Settles into a nice rocker. Not in love with the lyrics, but musically itís pretty good. And I love the transition into the Tears On Stone part. I love this arrangement. Megadeth uses it a lot, as did Ozzy era Sabbath. I actually like the second part better than the first. Shows off some nice versatility.
 
-1.0

Jingle.boy Ė Blind Revolution Mad

The slow intro part is cool, if a bit long, and I liked where I thought it was going, but as the song really kicked in, it settled into a pretty mid tempo groove. IMO, the pace needed to be double what it is. I feel it wouldíve been a bit more powerful as a faster song. Not a bad song by any stretch. I actually gave this song a few extra listens, but I couldnít help feel that the heavy part was just a bit too slow.
-1.5

Lonestar Ė Naked Son

I think this is solo Kip. Interesting song coming from Lonestar. This one is very mellow and picks up a little towards the end. This is how I feel about it. I never really looked forward to listening to it, but once it started, itís pretty captivating. Great vocals and melodies. Ended up a lot stronger than I was expecting.

-1.0

Big Hath Ė In My Veins

This song took a listen or two to sink in, but I love the GnR vibe on this one. Feels like they are channeling some Y&T too. Iím not really sure what else to say about it, other than I hear a lot Alice Cooper in it. This track didnít really stand out for me, but I still enjoyed it.

-1.5

Wolfking Ė Rainbow In The Rose

While the music sounds a little dated, I really liked this one. Not in love with the lyrics, but finally a song with some mad Morganstein drumming. Heís a beast on this. Some tastey guitar coming in and out of this song as well.  This one grew on me like a fungus. This ended up being one of my favorites. Listening to it put me in a time machine.

-.5

Updated Standings:

Wolfking-34.5
Senecadawg2-34.0
Kingshmegland-34.0
b5150-34.0
Lonestar-33.0
Jingle.boy-32.5
Evermind-32.5
Big Hath-32.0
jjrock88-32.0

Saw sexy Kip Winger on the side and loled when I saw who owned it.  I knew we'd convert you Time.  ;D

And fuck you Chad, I took and punt with Rainbow and nailed it......kinda!  :hat

Fuck yeah, leading this shit now.  I'm not sure if my next song will keep me there though, but I'm confident in the tune.

Your inbox is full, Tim.

Here's my answer to your question about the wild card submission:

"Yeah I'm going to send something else for the live round, if you don't mind. The only reason this particular song is live is because there aren't any good versions of the studio version on YouTube and this live recording is just as good (if not better) anyways."   :tup

Tim, what's the point of the live round?  Serious question.
Fair question.

Well as long as I've been interested in music (forever), Live Albums have always been a gateway to many bands.
The first album I ever bought was Kiss Alive II.
If I am starting with a band, I usually start with whatever live album they had. I would not be the huge UFO and Thin Lizzy fan I am without Strangers and Life.

I've done this as an adult as well. To introduce myself to Sym X, I bought Live On The Edge Of Forever. With Threshold, I started with Critical Energy.
I remember trying to decide which Iced Earth album I should start with, and saw Alive In Athens.

Even when I'm on a Dream Theater or Metallica kick, I rarely listen to the studio albums.

Live albums are very important for me and as I said, they are THE way for me to start with a band.

Post by: bl5150 on August 19, 2015, 05:43:37 AM
For me the live round has been by far the toughest - and I'm no epic hoarder either (although very,very happy with what I have there).

Pretty much all the good live albums I have (not many) are by bands on Tim's list.  Of the bands I think he might like almost none have a live album - and the few that do sound like shit , have a poor vocal etc...  :lol  I have settled on a couple of options finally but it's not an easy one.

Yeah, live round is definitely the toughest. I don't listen to live albums much, so I don't have a lot of options here. I'll probably have to send something outside of Tim's comfort zone.

I'm sorry some of you are finding the Live Round a tough one. It is actually the round that I was most looking forward to when I originally set the rounds. That is why I saved it for the end. It's basically an Open Round for any band that has a live album.


Back to Round 6 for a second.

Two people used Wild Cards. One was an EASY choice. The other was harder to decide which one to use.

Also, two people sent me songs from the SAME album!

This round is really kicking ass and as a group, is miles better than the last Open Round.

So going back to my Round 4 Open Round write ups, I wanted to modify one of them. I originally wrote this:


Jingle.boy Ė Flaming Row Ė Unearth The Truth

Well, I know how much you love this song, so you might want to stop reading here. First, this is a beautifully done song. Very deep and captivating. But it only seemed to work if I sat down and simply tried to lose myself in it.  I feel like I need to hear more around it, but as a stand alone song, this isnít something Iíd go back to. Again, I felt like I was trying to hard to like it. Iíd be interested to hear something a bit heavier from this album and would certainly follow up any recs you may have.

7.5



But I would like to now amend it to this:


Jingle.boy Ė Flaming Row Ė Unearth The Truth

Should've saved this for Bolsters' Roulette.

7.5


 ;D

Well as you start attending concerts hopefully you'll appreciate the Art Of Live (and I don't mean Queensryche :lol).

Nowadays, it's so easy to surf the net and sample music.

(old man voice) Back in my day, you had to go to a record store and if you wanted to check out a new band, you might be willing to risk $10 on it. So of all of a particular band's albums, you could choose ONE. Typically, their live album would have the best cross section of their music. So that was usually the one I would pick.

I'm right with you, a lot of the time. Generally I prefer studio albums for the sound quality, and quality of performance and production. And the original track running of studio albums is usually better.

There are exceptions. The big one is Iron Maiden, of course, who are infinitely better live. Live After Death and Rock In Rio are the two places I'd tell someone to start with Maiden. But for me, they are the exception, not the rule.

I don't skip all the live releases, and there are bands other than Maiden that I like live albums ofóColdplay, Transatlantic and Portnoy-era DT being three. But the live album is something I get after getting all the studio releases and is sometimes something I never get around to or get around to really late.

I just now bought LSFNY (I already had the Metropolis 2000 video, though). Just like a week ago. And I still haven't seen or heard anything from Breaking the Fourth Wall. So it's not a high priority for me either.

I totally get how it would be different in the pre-YouTube, pre-Spotify days, though.

Btw, I'm three years younger than Parama.

I don't have any problem with the scoring in this roulette so far.  Was hoping for a little better on the Epysode song.  And I ended up getting Kip-blocked on a couple of Winger songs, but no issues there.

Bolsters, roulette?  I'm at a complete loss.  :lol

random thoughts on the live album thing.

I too prefer the pristine perfection and sound quality (assuming the sonics haven't been crushed) of a studio recording.  When I do consume live music, I either want to be at the concert or watching a concert video.  I also don't really trust that most live albums are actually that.  Finally it seems like live albums used to be more "special" than they are now.  Like they were something a band built up to and became sort of a crowning achievement in their discography.  Nowadays it seems like you get a new live album after almost every tour.  I guess I feel like bands themselves put more focus on studio albums, and live albums are sort of an afterthought.

I agree with all this. I used to love live albums. Bands often sounded better on their live albums than in the studio, even on the albums that weren't very "live". I still love those old classic live albums but they don't have the same magic anymore. Maybe because the studio sounds are generally better now.
Priest, KISS, UFO, Lizzy etc all sounded heavier and fuller on their live albums.

Ha ha. No set up here. The TACS are away. But the good news is that I have managed to get through the tunes another 4 times, so I pretty much know how the write ups will be.

I'll bang them out after work on Monday and will post Monday afternoon.

7 of the 9 songs are excellent. And I mean EXCELLENT! Struggling with the scoring in this round.

  it seems like live albums used to be more "special" than they are now.  Like they were something a band built up to and became sort of a crowning achievement in their discography. 


That's an interesting thought and I completely get it.

Maybe in the digital age, it's easier, or maybe cheaper to release them. I remember as a kid wishing I could get a live album after every tour.

Post by: TAC on August 24, 2015, 01:09:52 PM
OK.. Round 6 Open Round Results.

Just want to say that this was an incredible round and very strong.

b5150 Ė Trail Of Murder Ė Some Stand Alone

This is the first of TWO songs received off the same album. I actually like this one a bit more than the other, and this is a great opening shot to this round. I remember Trail Of Murder coming out lasy year, and after sampling it, I put it on ďThe ListĒ. Somehow, I forgot about it.  I will likely grab this though, but Brent says this is much better than Serious Black. I really Love that album.
Ranked this in the excellent category, but due to the strength of this round, there are a number of tracks that scored higher. If this one couldíve given me a bit more of an earworm, it may have joined them.

9.0

senecadawg2 Ė Steven Wilson Ė Regret 9/Travis Larson Band - Watchman

Oh Seneca, I hate to do this, but this song just did not resonate. Itís an instrumental. I know I said I didnít like Wilsonís vocals, but I think in this roulette, and especially this round, choosing the heaviest song with vocals may have made more of an impact. This is very moodful and nice, but it was up against some seriously catchy power metal and strong progressive metal tracks. It just did not fit. Even when I tried to give it its space, I just couldnít get it to click.
Now you used a Wild Card here, coupling this with the Travis Larson Bandís Watchman, which is the stronger of the two. But I selfishly went for the Wilson to get aquainted with it. Anyway, I felt the score would be so low, I went back to Watchman. Still, against this group, Even Watchman was still a bit underwhelming.

8.0

Wolfking Ė Pyramaze Ė Back For More

Speaking of earworms, this song was it! For some reason, I still havenít gotten around to picking this up, not have I heard anything other than samples. So itís not on my iPod/Banned List, so Wolfking was able to get it through.  IMO, itís another safe entry, but quite effective. Great tune and loved hearing it! Wolfking just might be the guy to beat here.

9.5

Big Hath Ė Pink Cream 69 Ė Gods Come Together

Iíve literally never heard a PC69 tune. And I am missing out. This is another earwormy tune that stayed with me long after every listen. Fantastic chorus. I just wished Dennis Ward had saved this for Unisonic. Would love to hear Kiske to it, but this guy does a great job with it. A great round by Hath!

9.5

Evermind Ė Trail Of Murder Ė Carnivore

The second track off of the Trail Of Murder album. Unfortunately, I did not like this song as much as Some Stand Alone. What this song lacked was a little speed and a catchy chorus. It rocked pretty good, and in Round 4, this wouldíve been one of the higher scores, but in this round, it was swallowed by the competition.

8.5

Jingle.boy Ė Anthriel Ė Dark Divided Minds

So this song made me think of those foolish threads that pop up from time to time. The ones where ďIf JLB leaves DT, who should replace him?Ē Well if your answer was Marching Out era Jeff Scott Soto, then you would have Anthriel. This was a great song that starts off an incredible 1-2-3 progressive punch on my CD. Itís heavy, progressive, while never losing you by being too complicated. Good call J Boy, and I will definitely be picking this up.

9.5

Lonestar Ė Voices From The Fuselage Ė Meteorites

I love this song! Seriously, this is a great find. Lots going on, and an incredible arrangement. When the vocals started, I wasnít so sure, but this quickly grew on me and has so much to offer. I will be picking this up too. While itís the longest song in the round, I still canít believe they crammed so much in its 7 minutes. Still it never felt too long.  The first half of the CD had the back to back power metal greatness of Wolf and Hath, and the second half had this and Anthriel.

9.5

Kingshmegland Ė Jolly ĖThe Pattern

My first thought was WTF kind of name is Jolly?! This was an incredible song. Had my favorite instrumental part on the CD. This was like Heavy Metal Primus! Very cool. The only thing that kept it from a 9.5 was the fairly bland vocals, but other than that, a great tune!

9.0

jjrock88 Ė Recon Ė Light The Fire

JJ, you gave me goosebumps with this one!  And thatís really the first time that has happened in this roulette, as far as I can remember. This is what I would imagine if Michael Kiske had actually sung on Walls Of Jerhico. Great classic Helloween feel on this, and you really put me in a time machine on this one. Another classic entry by Jason, but this one was the best yet!

9.5

Standings:

Wolfking-44.0
Kingshmegland-43.0
b5150-43.0
Lonestar-42.5
Senecadawg2-42.0
Jingle.boy-42.0
Big Hath-41.5
jjrock88-41.5
Evermind-41.0

Tough round for the guys at the end when you score a 9.5 but make up no ground. Whoever wants this looks like they'll have to go through Wolfking!

Just waiting on Kade now. It's actually not his fault. One band he sent is not listed on my iPOd list, but I do have a couple of albums by them, and I really don't care for them. So though not on the list, they are banned.
And the other came off the board in Round 6.

That sucks, Nelson. Not the songs, that you regret it. I was really looking forward to the Wilson track.

If I ever do another Roulette, I will definitely have a PT Round.

No hard feelings- I understood that it was a risk. And it's not that big of a regret, I'm sure I'll recover  :lol

On another note, is there any chance I can change my round 7 submission, since you're (presumably) waiting on Kade to make the CD? Or have you already given the tracks several listens? If you have, I'll not bother.

Cool (and disappointing) thing about Pyramaze was that Urban breed was fronting them in between albums, but never got on a studio release with them.  Lance King on the first two albums; Barlow the 3rd; Urban for a few years doing live work, and now this new cat.  Pretty good run of vocalists I'd say.

Also, two people sent the same band. Looks like the same concert!

Also have half of Round 8 in! :lol

Do you have two more weeks in you, people?!?

Tough round and once again Tim you have surprised me.  For once I actually have all of those 9.5 songs/albums and the only ones I really like are PC69 and Recon.  And I purposely went for less "earworm"/obvious choruses on my ToM submission......there's huge metal hooks all over the album - I just chose the wrong song.   Once again I chose for your taste (or what I thought) and not my favourite track.  I'll never learn.  ::)

If I can stick within sight of Wolfie after the live round (doubtful) I am very confident in what I have for the last round (both tracks)

That's an awesome song, don't get me wrong. I almost went with 7 9.5's! You still got a 9.0 out of it though! I do indeed plan on getting it.

It was a really strong round.




And let me do this for everyone.........

If anyone is on the fence and wants to change their Live Submission, it needs to be in my inbox in the morning. So 11 hours from now.

Round 2..Savatage Round
Savatage is a band that I cannot get into. I need some convincing. And sorry Chad, no TSO.

Round 3..Guitar Hero Instrumental Round
The only Guitar Instrumental albums I have belong to Michael Schenker and Uli Roth. I know there are TONS of great albums out there. Let me hear them.  And while Steve Vai is most certainly allowed, please donít send me The Attitude Song. I have that.

Round 4..Open Round

Round 5..Winger Round
You assholes wanted it, you got it! I suppose this saves me the trouble of disqualifying everyone at the same time because I know you guys were going to play shenanigans.
Why is Round 5 the Winger round? Because sucks has five letters. So does blows.  So does queer.

Round 6..Open Round

Round 7ÖLive Round
Must be a selection from a Live Album. No time limit.

Round 8ÖEpic Round
Itís not a DTF Roulette without an Epic Round right? 10-15 minute time limit here.

A Saturday night event but was on only random Saturdays?  What the?

yeah, the schedule was pretty sporadic.  here is the description from its wikipedia entry:

Quote
Although the show aired infrequently, it did, starting in 1986, settle into a predictable pattern of airdates: New Year's weekend, an episode in late February/early March, an episode in late April/early May, an episode in late September/early October, and Thanksgiving weekend. 1989 and 1990 both offered episodes in July promoted as "Summertime Bonus Editions."

I'm still torn on what to do.  I've got two to chose from, both I'm quite certain no one is thinking of - well, Ruslan might've liked to think about one of them, but I know he's far too ethical a person to cock-block me.  A rarity in Russia I'm sure.   :lol

Anyway, I'm listening to the live songs, it's quite an eclectic collection. I would say that if there was ever a time to send something out of my comfort zone, the Live Round would be it.

So, I'm cutting the grass today to the playlist, and I got to thinking. A couple of you guys I don't know that well, and Im happy everyone joined my roulette.

To everyone, if you guys could listen to only 5 bands for the rest of your life who would they be. For me, it'd be my Top 5 Bands:

Dream Theater
Iron Maiden
UFO
Alice Cooper
Dio (whole career discog)


And you??

Haha, no David Gray is not from American Idol. He is, however, laughing in my avatar. He's a singer-songwriter in the tradition of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, etc. At least, that's how I would've described his first 3 (of 10) albums or so. After that he progressed and developed in a few different ways, experimenting with more Pop, Electronica and other stuff.

Ludovico Einaudi is more in the realm of Classical, but definitely not in the classical sense  ;) of the genre. Again, some electronic experimentation, strange instrumentation, minimalist compositions, etc.

Gonna cheat a bit on the 5 bands for the rest of my life, and have my first two be people, because I pretty much listen to side projects more than DT:

1. Mike Portnoy (he is my most listened to artist. it doesn't matter much what project it is, I usually like it a lot)
2. James LaBrie (LOVE his voice, and a lot of his side-project/solo stuff is amazing)
3. Metallica (MUST include live albums/B-sides)
4. Pink Floyd (I couldn't live not knowing I'd never hear Shine On or The Wall again)
5. Green Day (just to break up the prog/metal fest I would have)

That's actually quite tough. I could make a seperate list of five different bands and be completely happy. In fact:

1. Styx/Dennis DeYoung
2. Rush
3. "Weird Al" Yankovic
4. 311
5. The Beatles

...would be just fine.

Spock's Beard

SB is purely due to the depth of their discog.  Was thinking of S-X and Avantasia, but went with SB due to having more albums.

That's the trick. You gotta pick bands with a lot of albums.

Tim, I should've tried sending you a Helker track at some point in this roulette. I don't know if you've ever heard the name (not very popular), but they're a heavy metal band from Argentina and the vocalist has been compared to Dio on more than one occasion. While I think Dio is better- better than just about any other heavy metal vocalist apart from Dickinson- this guy is still really strong. Maybe you'd be interested in hearing him sing in Spanish.

Hmm, I don't know what my five artists would be. I have a well-established top three, and then I'm very uncertain about what goes beyond that.

The top 3 would be:
Dream Theater
Nightwish
Coldplay

Right now, I'd probably name these as the other two:
Iron Maiden
Death Cab For Cutie

But I'm not sure.

2. How would you rank Ozzy's albums?


Me, I skipped Q2K and Tribe, but I did get OM2. I do have a copy of American Soldier.
And I haven't bought an Ozzy album since Ozzmosis.

Me, I skipped Q2K and Tribe, but I did get OM2. I do have a copy of American Soldier.
And I haven't bought an Ozzy album since Ozzmosis.

Looking at my list I am wondering if KISS should be there actually........my first band and quality over a very long period vs the shorter term perfection of bands like DT .  Would I rather have the KISS discog or a few DT albums that I love?  Tough question but I can't imagine not having Images and Words.

I am loyal to a point but when my most favourite artists release shite I am still pretty quick to switch off , although I always take a passing interest in hope.    DT and Queensryche both have some of the most disliked albums in my collection.   DT got in there almost exclusively based on Images and Words - without that album they're not even close.  Although there's tracks I like on most DT albums I was disappointed to some extent in almost every album after I&W up until ADTOE..........so a long break there.

Queensryche I thought could do no wrong up until Promised Land , which I thought was half decent but a very bad omen.  HITNF cemented that thought and I really didn't bother from there.  Like you I bought OM2 but that's it as far as purchases go , up until their most recent. Oh..........my poor sister gave me Dedicated To Crap for Christmas that year , so I have that too sadly.

Ozzy would definitely be my most played artist ever along with Van Halen.  Like the initial run of Queensryche I loved  pretty much everything from Blizzard to No More Tears and Ozzmosis is also strong, but different.   Like you Tim I really haven't bothered since Ozzmosis.  Rankings are hard ........maybe I'll do Ozzy next in the metal thread.

I don't know if you've ever heard the name (not very popular), but they're a heavy metal band from Argentina and the vocalist has been compared to Dio on more than one occasion. While I think Dio is better- better than just about any other heavy metal vocalist apart from Dickinson- this guy is still really strong. Maybe you'd be interested in hearing him sing in Spanish.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfCyIOryOF8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfCyIOryOF8)

Helker are pretty good - I think I might have picked them up off seneca in another roulette.

I still have so much I couldn't squeeze into this roulette that I would've loved to send..........one of the most obscure albums in my collection has a guy that sounds like the lovechild of Dio and Gillan (he sounds so much like both at various times  :omg:) singing for Rainbow/Purple.    The only reason I left it out is because I wasn't sure how Tim feels about bands that ape other bands so closely , no matter how good they are.

I had also never followed or considered doing a Top 50, until I stumbled upon the end of Chad's list. Saw Slade and that really excited me. You just never see a Slade reference on DTF. I was then inspired to do my own.

I remember when I did the inital list that it was based on albums I grew up on or ones that really helped me or changed my life.  A lot of those albums I don't really listen to anymore, which is strange.  I think now it would be different, the top 50 would be purely based on enjoyment and replay value over the years.  A lot of the albums would still be in there, I wouldn't make it totally different but it would be good to go in with a different perspective.

It was tough to do a Top 50. Generally I would take the "if I could only listen to 50 albums for the rest of my life, which ones would they be?" approach.

But it is important to point out the landmark albums in your life.

I've considered doing a v.2, but I'd be hard pressed to pick a direction. I know I wouldn't take the approach of trying to find 50 albums no one has heard of.

I also think it'd be dumb doing a v.2 consisting of my fave albums 100-51. Seems pointless after listing 50-1.

Yeah, but a Top 50 is OK if it's diverse. You should definitely do it.

I remember when I did the inital list that it was based on albums I grew up on or ones that really helped me or changed my life.  A lot of those albums I don't really listen to anymore, which is strange.  I think now it would be different, the top 50 would be purely based on enjoyment and replay value over the years.  A lot of the albums would still be in there, I wouldn't make it totally different but it would be good to go in with a different perspective.

It was tough to do a Top 50. Generally I would take the "if I could only listen to 50 albums for the rest of my life, which ones would they be?" approach.

But it is important to point out the landmark albums in your life.

I've considered doing a v.2, but I'd be hard pressed to pick a direction. I know I wouldn't take the approach of trying to find 50 albums no one has heard of.

I also think it'd be dumb doing a v.2 consisting of my fave albums 100-51. Seems pointless after listing 50-1.

I think if I ever decide to do a v.2, I would go with Chad's approach - 50 albums I got introduced to via DTF.

You absolutely should. I think it'd be great!

I don't know if I could even do it. I may give it an attempt in my off time just to see if it's possible. If so, perhaps I'd sign up.
I'd definitely follow.

I had MSG (his 2nd one) in my Top 10. An incredible album.

But while there is NO guitarist I like more than Michael Schenker, I must concede that a lot of his albums are kind of iffy.

I'd rank them like this:
MSG
Built To Destroy
Bridge The Gap
Assault Attack
Save Yourself
Spirit On A Mission


But after that, there's a lot of mediocrity, not so much in his playing, but songwise. I mean, you can kind of get a sense when he's tuned in.

If anything Paul, you need more UFO!!!

Like Saxon, mostly know their later stuff, quite unfamiliar with their earlier work.  I have a few of their older albums though, just never gave them repeated listens.

I own;

Lights Out
Obsession
One of Those Nights
Phenomenon
Strangers in the Night
Showtime

Plus all of them from You Are Here bar the last one.  So I have a couple of the classics, should dig them out.

For me the SiTN versions are faultless. But you have the early essentials there but the 80s albums are great too. They were a great band , and they were my first gig.

 Of the 5 original Schenker albums you are only missing the 2nd (Force It) and 3rd (No Heavy Petting).

For my money, playing wise, No Heavy Petting is Schenker's best work. He's untouchable on that.

Think about Phenomenon for a minute. He was 18 when that came out. Listen to that solo on Time On My Hands. Really??
And Force It is out of this world too.

You must also get the first reunion era album,  1993's Walk On Water.

Pretty sure One Of These Nights was also released as Live In Tokyo 1992.
It's fantastic.

They made one album with Laurence Archer, 92's High Stakes And Dangerous Men, which was notable as it was a reunion of Phil Mogg and Pete Way, who left after 82's Mechanix.
High Stakes contains a Top 10 UFO track for me by ANY lineup.

Right fucking NOW asshole!  ;D

Round 7

Lonestar Ė Anathema Ė Untouchable Parts 1-2

WOW! Thatís all I have to say. Iíve seem Anethema mentioned a lot around here, but have never checked them out. This is out of my comfort zone, but itís an incredible song. Starts out nice, and then at about 4 minutes in the ďIíd never betray our trustĒ parts starts and itís a 4 minute eargasm that follows. Amazing. Might be my favorite 4 minutes of the whole roulette. The second more slower parts is a little draggy. I feel the parts should be switched. Not sure a studio version would be so magical. This is why I do Live!

9.5

Kingshmegland Ė Enchant Ė Under Fire

So apparently Rush and Kansas had a baby! Iíve honestly never heard an Enchant tune before. I was really looking forward to it. Major Rush influence but thereís not much other than that that really stood out for me. Nothing I didnít like about it though.

8.5

b5150 Ė Edenís Curse Ė Black Widow

Oh Brent, I am sorry, but this was probably my least favorite song of the round. You do know Iím not a Deris fan right? And Iím still shocked that you had so much trouble finding a track in this round.  I have heard some Edenís Curse before, and itís OK, but I was hoping a live version of one of their songs would really change my mind on them. Unfortunately it didnít.

8.0

Jingle.boy Ė Nightwish Ė Planet Hell

Chad used a Wild Card in this round and gave me a Tarja and a Floor song. I went with Planet Hell as I liked the song a bit better. Love how the male vocals play off the female. Iím not big on female vocals in a rock band. At all.  So while I wouldnít buy a Nightwish studio album, I could see myself investing in a live album by them. 

8.5

Evermind Ė Evergrey Ė Mark Of The Triangle

Similar to Nightwish, Evergrey is a band that I have sampled a couple of times over the years. Iíve frankly never been that impressed. Thatís why I cringed when Ruslan submitted them. But the energy of this live track was infectious. Loved how the crowd was mixed and it gave this a ton of energy. The song had some highs and lows and both were supported greatly by the audience. I surprisingly really enjoyed this.   Again, I could see me buying this live album and being happy.

9.0

jjrock88 Ė Circle II Circle Ė Epiphany

A little Savatage encore here! Iím not sure if this is from an actual release or just a youtube vid with decent sound, but either way, I loved this track. It really has a mini epic feel. Love how the electric piano weaves in and out. I am going to follow up with CIIC.  I could close my eyes and picture myself at a club listening to this. That is how I love to experience music. Great tune!

9.0

Senecadawg2 Ė Anathema Ė One Last Goodbye

The second Anathema track submitted this round. I think itís from the same live album. This isnít as bombastic as Untouchable was, but this was an incredible experience. And again, Iím not sure the studio version would have the same effect. It would come off as moody to me. But this live version is so genuine, I got goosebumps. Especially when the crowd stated singing. Tingles!! I expect to buy this live album and be happy not buying another Anathema album. Thought this was fantastic.

9.5

Big Hath Ė Harem Scarem Ė No Justice

Hath, I hate to do this to you, but I canít believe this was the best live track at your disposal. You have such a wide range of tastes so you picking such a mediocre band like Harem Scarem to submit is surprising. I will say that No Justice was decent live, but Iím pretty sure I would not give the studio version any love.  Honestly what I was hoping Iíd get from you is a clean live vocal from Devin Townsend. Iím pretty sure the vocals canít suck on all of his songs.

8.0

Wolfking Ė Kamelot Ė Karma

Kamelot is a band that I have sampled many times, but something has been missing for me. I canít put my finger on it. But this was a cool song, and in many ways offered a bit more than the Edenís Curse. Loved the lyrics and the vocals. In fact, Royís ďbabbling madmanĒ style in the middle reminded me a bit of Suicidal Tendencies. While it doesnít make me want to run out and buy a Kamalot album, it does make me want to buy THIS live album.

8.5

Looks like Kade is going to make this interesting.   :D

Quite I diverse set of submissions (despite the double up on Anathema).  I'm surprised (pleasantly) you went with Planet Hell.

And I'm surprised that HS and Kamelot just don't click for you.  I knew HS was a bad call based on a comment long ago, but Kamelot??  Dem's tastes for ya.

Well this is what is great about doing a roulette. It forces you to analyze a song, which is a lot different that punching up youtube and listening for a few minutes.
I followed along as someone did a Kamelot Top 50 a couple of years ago. I sampled a few tracks along the way and nothing jumped out at me. Yes by all accounts, I should be a Kamelot fan. I can say that I am not big on symphonic elements in my metal.

But I liked this song and would definitely consider buying a live album by them.

I'm surprised (pleasantly) you went with Planet Hell.

That was the song that made the best first impression. I listened to each two or three times.

like I said, not much to choose from on the live front.  My other alternatives were Tower of Power (R&B/funk) or Eric Johnson from the G3 album.  I assumed TOP would have been so far outside your wheelhouse it wouldn't even make sense.  Of course, I would have thought the same thing about Anathema, so when I saw you post in their thread, I almost fainted.

I didn't even know Devy had a live album.  :lol

I'm pleasantly surprised you enjoyed that Evergrey track, Tim. I thought it would be out of your comfort zone, but I'm glad to see this isn't the case. Yeah, this album has a great mix between band and audience, and I think you won't regret buying it. I thought the live round would be difficult, but then I remember I own this album.

And wow, those Anathema scores. I don't have any live albums from them, but I'm definitely looking forward to see them in October now.

I'm gonna be out on weekend, got this festival to attend, great lineup with Helloween and Primal Fear and Amorphis too. Does anyone here listen to Dark Tranquility? What kind of band is it? Right now I'm tempted to skip them and get something to eat in the meantime, but maybe you guys will be able to change my mind about it.

This is why I'm not a fan (when I run a roulette) of a 1-10 (or whatever) rating scale.  It's hard to maintain consistency across rounds.  For instance, are the 7s and 7.5s in previous rounds worse than the 8s and 8.5s in other rounds?  Or was a 7.5 back then equivalent to a 9 now?  Just my opinion on the matter.

And yeah, Tim is a nice guy and doesn't want to hurt my delicate feelings, so I like him that way.

I also like it when people are brutally honest.  I remember getting 3s and 4s (out of 10) because the organizer really didn't like the tunes.  I appreciate that kind of honesty too.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette- LIVE Results are up!!
Post by: wolfking on August 28, 2015, 03:50:12 PM
Dark Tranquility are melodic death metal, pretty cool, but don't think they would be up your alley Evermind.  The last album as pretty good and melodic though.

Interesting round, I've never heard Anathema, so I should proably check them out.  Half a point hey?  All comes down to the epic, which I sent two rounds ago.

Tim, what would have my wild card scored?

i'm too lazy to look through the rest of my library to see if i can find any more of the timestamps though, the shorter ones would be too hard anyways and i doubt people sent many epics i know

also he liked LoDDoD a lot and was super pissed that he had to give it a good score, so that's why he will never let me forget it

TAC, I'm not that much of a growl person and you'll be fine on that one. The growls are a tiny part of the 60 minute song and they're not very prominent or abrasive. If you're fine with Slayer those growls shouldn't be an issue.

I did realise you weren't the biggest Deris fan Tim - however I did my research and found a comment of yours about liking the most recent Helloween , so I assumed it couldn't be all that bad. Oh well .   I expect to make a comeback in the epic round but given the quality of the competition 1.5 pts is asking a bit much.


You're finishing last in my roulette for this statement alone.  Just sayin...

I think everyone is still suffering from Winger Round Afterglow.

I'm off the next three days so hopefully we'll go out with a bang.

The Epics are a bit much to get through but they are all truly amazing.
They are all gifts, and I appreciate every one if them. But we've also had an Iron Maiden leak. I only have two ears!

Thoughts on the Maiden?

Well I've only skipped around a bit. Tons to soak in. I remember it took a while for the totality of AMOLAD to hit me, and I have a feeling it will be the same here. The songs have tons of nuances and a lot of changes. Real progressive in parts. The musical break is very longs and cool in The Red And The Black. Reminds me of our conversation about The Duelist not too long ago.

Gotta get through the epics first. Like I said, I'm off the next three days (I'm home from work now). Problem is, in the car, in past rounds, I could get 4 songs in each way. Now, It's only a and a small part of another.

Results on Thursday!

Do one more round, a duel between the people who are tied for the first place. Both are to send one more song for you, the winner is the player whose song you like better.

In fact, do anything you want, but don't leave this thing with two winners. :biggrin:

So I'm going to post the Final Results here in an hour or so.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Joe, Ruslan, Kade, RJ, Chad, Nelson, Jonathan, Brent, and Jason for playing. This was a ton of fun for me.

I hesitated to do a roulette for a long time for a couple of reasons.
First, I wasn't sure if I could actually commit the time needed to host one. It's actually a lot of work of compiling, listening and writing up. Nevermind that I decided to post pics of my CDs and iTunes. Photobucket is a bitch!!
and secondly, I hated the idea of choosing one person's song over another's. You guys all have awesome tastes in music, and I just have always felt funny about someone being in last place.

I remember signing up for this some times last year, and I cannot remember what prompted me. Anyway, I'm just glad I did.

This has certainly been one of the most interesting roulettes that I've participated in and I'm happy that you had such a good time running it. I hope you do another one eventually.

It was also a great cast of players, so good on the rest of you.
Title: Re: The TAC Roulette- There is some EPIC Listening going on!
Post by: Evermind on September 01, 2015, 01:09:32 PM
Even if I'll finish last place in this roulette, it means nothing because the participants had those impeccable tastes in music, bringing the competition to another level. And in the end, there's only one true winner, and that's Tim (not his wallet though, I'm sure some purchases are going to be done shortly after this whole affair)

I had a great fun participating and this was an awesome roulette regardless of the last round results. :tup

Post by: TAC on September 01, 2015, 02:20:55 PM
First off, I viewed everyone of these songs as a gift. They are all incredible, and I humbly accept each one. My first listen through was spiritual, and my appreciation for you guys really jumped out at me. This round, like the rest of the roulette was an amazing experience.
I know I said I'd send out the CDs to the winner, but you know what...I'm keeping them!!! An amazing collection of music.

OK, without further ado..EPIC Results!


Wolfking Ė Stratovarius Ė Elysium

I tried pretty hard on Stratovarius many years ago. But I just found them a little cheesy and inconsistant. And Kotipelto was completely annoying. But I havenít heard anything by them in a very long time. I know Tolkki is gone and their new stuff has been fairly well received. Well after hearing this, I can see why. Real solid tune that got better with each listen. And Kotipeltoís voice has really matured. Love the sound of it actually. The Strats are now officially back on The List.

9.5

Kingshmegland Ė Forgotten Sons Ė In Harmís Way

King, you really impressed me with this one. I totally underestimated you in this roulette. Perhaps because you sent your worst song in Round 1. I figured Iíd get some progterpiece, but this totally kicks ass! Very heavy, and very strong musicianship, particularly the drummer. The instrumental break is incredible. Well done!

9.5

Senecadawg2 Ė Affector Ė Harmegedon

Seneca asked if I minded some Christian Metal. Hell no!!! And metal it is. Musically, this was one of my two favorite tracks in this round.  This one rocks the whole way through. Love the vocals and the whole vibe. Most lyrics are pretty much battles between good and bad. So the fact that Christian metal extols the good is not a big deal for me. Itís a message Iím more than comfortable with. Bands like Theocracy, Stryper, and Sacred Warrior are terrific. Add Affector to the list!!

10

Lonestar Ė IQ Ė The Seventh House   

Lonestar, I can see why this is your favorite tune. You feel about IQ as I do about UFO. This is going to be a track that I will definitely be checking back to. I donít think a handful of listens over the course of a week do this justice. This is one song that you live a lifetime with.

9.0

jjrock88 Ė Rob Rock Ė The Hour Of Dawn

jj, you crushed this round. Along with Seneca, this was one of my favorites of the round. Rob Rock is someone who I am frankly not that familiar with, but I really like everything Iíve herad from him. And Roy Z!!! Unbeleivable!! He rips all over this, with an extended solo section trading off with the keys that will blow your mind. Iím getting this album! Most likely the first one I buy from this roulette.

10.0

Big Hath Ė Soul Secret Ė Aftermath

Hath, I had no idea what to expect from you in this round. Iíve never heard Soul Secret. But what this is is a high energy progressive tune that any fan of Dream Theater should love. This completely held my attention the whole way through and was a really refreshing listen. I am definitely interested in hearing more from them. You definitely went out with a bang here!

9.5

Evermind Ė Need Ė Orvam

Another track that I had no idea what to expect. After a somewhat mellow opening with some great guitar work, itís very heavy, especially through the first 8 or 9 minutes. Doesnít really let you up for air, but around the 9 minute mark, it really turns epic like. Lots more keys and flavors flowing through the track from this point on. I wish the first half was as colorful as the second half. Still a very cool tune.

9.0

Jingle.boy - Transatlantic Ė Kaleidoscope

I wouldíve been fine with Dimension Act. You told me a NEED this song. I NEED an enema too.

Seriously, I could only get through this twice. Itís too much and while the playing is very good and nice, I had a hard time staying focused on it. Awesome to hear MP though, and I really miss his playing. The vocals on this are pretty bland, and this would be much better live. I think it would have retained some more energy. The two Anathema songs from the last round wouldíve likely struggled too had it not been a live round.

8.5

b5150 Ė Stigma IV ĖSleep

Where did you come up with this band?? This was a cool song. And YES the singer sounds a ton like Dee Snider (and a little Blackie Lawless).  I liked this quite a bit. Not in love with the chorus, or hearing it so many times, but everything else was great. Because of the Dee Snider sound alike, the vocals really hooked me. This definitely felt like a dig deep track but thanks for sending it!

9.0


And the Winner is.........

And thanks for playing. I appreciate it. And thanks for adding your humor to the thread. Great stuff!! You guys all made this special.

I actually thought Seneca was going to catch you for a tie. That is how I viewed it over the weekend because I loved his song. But the Stratovarius really grew on me and it is excellent in its own right. A tie would've been cool and prolonged this a bit, but in the end, I couldn't drop Elysium one whole point below it.

You really did. I've seen some of your submissions in other roulettes and worried how'd you fare with some of these guys. But after the burp in the first round, you were ON it the rest of the way. And I am definitely getting the Forgotten Sons album. What year is that? Do they have anything else?

Looks like I need to get that Rob Rock album - I think it's the only one of his solo albums I don't have.  Can't remember much about any of them (been years) but will check it out.......and a couple of the other  songs above.  I have the Forgotten Sons and enjoy that , same with Strato but never managed to connect with the Soul Secret myself.

Where did you come up with this band??

Just in my travels  :lol  As I said in my PM I was not 100% convinced on whether to send it as I share some of your reservations on the song - a bit more variety in the chorus would be welcome.  In the end though I almost always favour sending rare stuff that I reckon the host will never discover if not for my submission in the roulette , even if I may have something a bit "safer" that is more well known.

@ Nelson and Hath... I know for sure I gave you Harmageddon in your Roulette, Nelson; did I give you Soul Secret, Jon?  If so, I'll take some comfort in knowing that my tastes are a 10/10 with Tim.

So after all the buzz, no one sent Dimension Act? :lol

Don't worry... I got a triple CD worth of "Best of the Rest" stuff I'll be sending Tim, capped of with Drawing the Lines of Mortal Existence.

As for my last place performances, I was more trying to expose you to music outside your comfort zone - pure prog in Transatlantic, and Symphonic/Female in Nightwish.  Kaleidoscope is a lot to digest, and not likely the best song to be first exposed to TA with.  Try the 7 minute Black as the Sky if you're so inclined.

I knew 100% Joe was sending that Forgotten Suns song.  Get that album Tim, Revelations is an EP, and maybe Innergy.  The first two are very, VERY different and not metal at all.

Had a blast with this one.  One of, if not, THE best roulettes I've ever played in.  Guess we couldn't out-spam Nem's to get to 43 pages.  :lol

I'll send you that triple CD when I'm back home... just gotta scratch off the Soul Secret from it.

Quality roulette, except for the whole final results thang. Maybe with a few more spins IQ coulda hit that 10 range and put me in the winners circle, but as they say, wish in one hand shit in the other and see which one fills up first....

Kudos Kade, and props to you Tim for managing this thing like a champ.

The IQ is a bit out of my area, but it's a song that deserves respect. At some point in the next couple of years, you are going to get a PM, or this thread is going to get a huge bump, where I go, "Lonestar, I UNDERSTAND!!!!"  :lol

For a while, I was considering giving everyone a 10 for the round. Actually, I'm kind of sorry I didn't. But hey, scoring was one of the reasons I cited for being hesitant on doing a roulette in the first place.

For reference, the song is about a group of war veterans getting together many years later to share stories.

You sure did... Such a great song. And I almost considered not sending the song in case it might block your submission. I would've felt bad about that, so I'm glad you sent something else. Though I don't think I would've gone for Kaleidoscope, of all the Transatlantic epics to choose from. 

I'm also happy to see the Need epic was submitted. It probably would've been my choice if not for the Harmageddon.

I hadn't either until they released their third full length album last year. Coincidentally, they've toured a bit with Jon Oliva's Pain and he's been known to be a pretty big fan of theirs.

Need are awesome and Orvam is great. Glad to see Tim liked it.

Relevant to this thread: I was just ordering the new Symphony X album (yeah, I'm slow like that) through the Russian analogue of Amazon, and after I added it to my shopping basket, the first album that popped up in "You might also be interested in" section was Winger - Karma. What a coincidence. :lol

And it costs ~13$, no less. New SX price is about ~4$. :lol

Just a one time bump to say that I bought my first post Roulette album yesterday-Pyramaze's Disciples Of The Sun.

This was an album that was on my radar earlier this year, but for some reason kept getting edged out for purchase. But The Lovely Mrs. TAC put $50 in my Amazon account for my birthday and I promptly bought the new Slayer and then the Pyramaze downloads.

Will be spending the rest on Queensryche and Saxon. If the new Anthrax or Metal Church release dates are close to Christmas, I'll hold off on those and grab the Vanden Plas when it comes out.
