Title: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. UNNECESSARY EPILOGUE
Post by: Sacul on January 10, 2016, 05:46:40 PM
So... hi. It's been a bit more than a year since my last roulette, and it's time for more controversy :P

So I've been running a list with my favorite albums, but this one turned up before than expected - the roulette will officially start when the list is over, which should be in a few days. My tastes have changed since v1, and expanded a bit, yet I feel there's much to explore left, so I hope you folks help me fill some pretty big, obvious holes in my musical library (think of most of classic prog or rock/metal bands from the 60s to the 80s). Trying to explain my current tastes wouldn't be enough with just a list of 50 albums, therefore I've written a few pages of text trying to make sense of what I like or not. Will get to it later though, for I want to explain some fundamental part of this roulette, and the most delicate, but also the one likely to turn off some people - just read all first, please.

You may have noticed in my sig, besides the nice quotes, there's a link that says "The To-Listen List Project". Well, long story short, it's a little pet project I started first with the intention of having a list with all the albums I wanted to check out (a proto version of it can be found on my first roulette), but kept expanding it with lots of classic albums I needed to check out, and some that looked interesting. Thing is... this list is too fucking long, that I even had to put it as an online spreadsheet file. It has, as of date, a total of 1877 records, spanning most of the musical genres in existence. Yes, even power metal, country, grindcore, hip-hop, electropop, and the like  :lol  My goal here is to give every kind of music a fair chance, so don't be afraid to send whatever you want!

So I started listening to some random albums from it, and while there where lots of meh stuff, found some gold. A few even ended up in my top 50. But... there are still a fucking lot of them. No, I won't delete any. But thought... doing another roulette would fill me with, like 50 new albums or more, not counting those already included in the list. You can now see where this is going, right? But wait, before you go, let me explain exactly how this will go - I've given much thought as to how to handle this, trying to find a balance between the players and their choices, and my own sanity.

So, now...

RulesUseful links:Don't worry about the list, I've been adding most of DTF's favs, some of your typical submissions on roulettes, and even Coldplay and Winger :lol

Participants
If you're on this list but don't want to/can't participate, let me know.

Banned artists
As a rule of thumb, any artist with a rating of 3.5 or more in the list or on SputnikMusic, is banned. If it has a rating of 3 or below, you can send it, but NOT from the album that has such rating in the list. For example, you can send me a Coheed and Cambria song that doesn’t belong to Afterman: Ascension, but not one from that album.

It goes without saying, but the following list contains completely banned artists - the next one is more of a guide, as those bands are kinda allowed, yet not recommended (all in accordance to what was stated in the previous paragraph, ofc). All the songs I was sent in my previous roulette are banned too (you can find them at the end).

Happy zone (a.k.a. bands/artists I quite like - the ones I love are bolded)

I'll read through the rules and stuff in a bit but I am definitely in, got some cool shit for you yo.

Okay so I think I get most of it, just not the 5 songs from your list thingy, is your list complete? Because when I open it it stops at BusRatch - Memorium.

man i'm gonna die trying to send you songs from the list, i hope there are no themed rounds  :lol
i'm in tho, gonna ruin you with metal you'll hate

Can we send a song that is from a band on the list, but not the album stated, if we think a different album is better, or there is a song on a different album that is a better intro to the band?

Can we send a live version of a song from an album on the list?

If either if those is a no, it shouldn’t be a problem anyway, I think I saw enough stuff I know and like on the list that I could potentially try to stick to it for all ten rounds, just to help you hammer away at the list.  :lol
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta!
Post by: Train of Naught on January 10, 2016, 06:30:03 PM
I'm probably doing just 5 of the list just because I have so much of my own stuff to send you, but there's some awesome albums on that list that I would send either way so we'll see.

man i'm gonna die trying to send you songs from the list, i hope there are no themed rounds  :lol
There are not

there will prob be enough albums i know to pick 5 songs i'd be rather happy with but i'm going to fill the other 5 slots with bands nobody else will send

That explains it, what a shame, for a second I thought you had developed good taste   :tdwn

Is it likely you don't know any of the songs on an album on the list if it has no rating yet? I mean, it would seem logical, but then you have these albums that I would not believe you don't know a single song from.
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta!
Post by: Sacul on January 10, 2016, 06:41:27 PM
Well, if it is a pretty well-known song, it's probable. In any case, send it and if I'm familiar with it, I'll ask to resend and give ya my thought on that tune :P


Can we go ahead and send?
I'd normally wait until I finish my top 50, but since you don't seem to have any strategy, yeah, go ahead.

Pelagial has missed the RNG bid thus far so I haven't gotten around to giving it a ton of listens yet (it's not in the set i just started today either) but i'll get around to it eventually

anyways there's only like 11 albums on the entire list i'd really want to send songs off of and i'm only gonna pick 5 (there was one artist i was surprised to see but you picked the wrong album so i'm sending them off the album i'm actually familiar with)

By the way, as a fellow insane listmaker, I can take one look at that list and tell you why it's overwhelming you: it's just one massive fucking list. You need to break it up, categorise the artists according to genre or something like that, to make it more manageable. That way, when you say to yourself, "I wanna check out some hip-hop", you don't have to sift through 1800 albums.

I don't expect to do well at all, but I think I've got a couple of things that may appeal to you. Having to send five things from your giant list will probably screw me but I don't have a shot of winning anyway so it won't matter. Joining for the fun of it and to see if I am capable of sending even one song that you don't hate (fingers crossed). :lol

Count me in.

Well, I think at this point is not possible without ending up in the psychiatrist :lol

I don't really check music based on my mood, so I just organize what I'll listen to in a weekly basis, and check those albums. I may ask a few friends to recommend me stuff from the list from time to time, but that's about it. I may encounter lots of crap, yeah, but I've found this has opened my tastes a lot.

Btw folks, all songs from albums on the list will make me check those records even if I thought your tunes sucked. Just so you know :P

That's how I approached your roulette  :rollin

There's a fair amount of hard rock and heavy metal on the list, it's just a matter of choosing wisely ;)
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! 4 SPOTS LEFT!!!
Post by: Parama on January 10, 2016, 07:49:38 PM
my goal is to send you:
5 artists on the list nobody else is very likely to send (i feel like 4 of the 5 are very unlikely to be sent by anyone else, with the 5th not very likely either)
5 artists that i've discovered through my personal searching this last year and that i doubt anyone else has heard of through any source other than myself

basically i'm gonna find you the good stuff
i'm also going to be sending mostly really heavy stuff apparently  :lol

is there any limit on track length btw? one of the albums i'm gonna send off of, the shortest song is almost 12 minutes and it's my least favorite anyways  :lol

I'm already seeing some electronic stuff on this list that I know, and I'm only up to C. If this trend continues I might be able to avoid sending rock and metal genres - I'm not too sure I could pick out stuff from those that would appeal to you to be honest. I've got some electronica and some dj0nt, I'm going to lead with that.

There's very, very little stuff I actually dislike and hate with passion (a bit of that explained in the My tastes link), so chances are you'd just get a 2.5/5 at worst, meaning I found it "meh"  :P .

I'll read thru the rules v. soon but just rsvp'ing a resounding yes to your sexy request

EDIT:  at first I was like '10 rounds, 5 of which have to be from your goddamned list?' but then I was overwhelmed by the sheer nerdy overkill of said list.  Quite a few of the entries are favourites of mine, and some I know like the back of my hand...  I think I'll have some fun with this.

I'm just reading your "taste manifesto".

I'm 100% with you on '80s production, revolting, and a massive hindrance. It's like everyone forgot how to make music sound good for 10-12 years. Even without it though, the '80s are mostly a write-off of a decade - you can listen to albums from 1978 and 1979 and not only were only shite bands appearing, but you can hear the zeitgeist transforming all the good ones from the '70s into shit too. And that situation holds like a spell until about 1989.

BUT with all that said - if there's anything to take away from the decade, it's pop. Coming from someone who is really not fussed on the 80s, or pop very much, the '80s were basically the golden age of pop.

I would've never joined this roulette if not for an unfortunate fact I won the previous installment of this madness. Our tastes are so not a match these days it's ridiculous.

Anyway, I'm in, if only to try and defend my crown!

I have five songs I'll send, but they're pretty obscure and I doubt anyone will cockblock me on those, so I'm going to send five songs from your list first. I don't think it'll go well though - even though you have albums like Rainbow - Rising on your list, I can't imagine you'll like any of those six songs.

Also, if I'm dead last after those five rounds I'm going to send you loads of cheesy metal instead of the good songs I've prepared.

Mike, I think you were in invited persons list so I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Sure!

Well, I guess it depends on the artist, but I would be very careful when going with 80s pop - I once had an intership for two months at a lab, 3 daily hours, where they had this radio playing mostly 80s pop hits. Gosh, no. Those are among the very few things I actually hate with passion  :lol


even though you have albums like Rainbow - Rising on your list, I can't imagine you'll like any of those six songs.
If anything, I think Stargazer is an excellent track, and would rate it like 4/5 or so. But of course it's banned  :P

I don't care about lyrics in general, so unless you send me something completely awful lyric-wise (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWjwsPVfms4), it shouldn't affect the score. Plus, Stargazer rocks  :metal

Doooooooo eeeeeeeet.........

I was about to discard that idea, but then this inspired me:

(http://i67.tinypic.com/30ksoqx.png)

A bit of a pity nobody sent me black metal tho. Anyways, already listened to Ev's song, so here they are all, in random order:


Well this is pretty nice. I dig the combination of robotic vocals with the real ones...

This has some nice acoustic layering, and I like his voice, how intimate it all feels.

So after checking like half of these guys' discography, and not really digging it, I kinda liked this album so added it to the list to check it later. But forgot to do so lol. This is definitely the best [band] song I've heard so far...

The fuck is this :lol

Nice electronics? The melodies aren't that good tbh.

I guess this one is a grower. Goes places, yes, but seems a bit unfocused.

Better than most power metal I've heard at least.

Well this is not what I expected. This song is a bit weird, atonal at times, and pretty dark. Yet it doesn't appeal me that much...

Tbh, although I have listened to little [band], I definitely prefer their instrumental pieces...

Well, I really dig those vocal harmonies throughout the song. It has some epic moments too. Yup, I'm quite digging this piece.

But man, this is just pure fun, and some excellent joyful stuff.

It has an interesting dark circus vibe I quite dig tho.

I dig this one quite a lot, yet my complaint is that on the second half he does some weird noises/screams that turn me off a bit.

I actually expected a heavier song, but instead this is a... ballad? I really dig the atmosphere and the electronic sounds...

Nothing wrong with the song, is short and catchy, and does its job well. I feel it's a tad bit too short tho.

So after checking like half of these guys' discography, and not really digging it, I kinda liked this album so added it to the list to check it later. But forgot to do so lol. This is definitely the best [band] song I've heard so far...

Better than most power metal I've heard at least.

Well, I really dig those vocal harmonies throughout the song. It has some epic moments too. Yup, I'm quite digging this piece.


Either of those could be mine, can't really see how the others could fit up with my song. Hope it's the last one

This has some nice acoustic layering, and I like his voice, how intimate it all feels.

That's mine probably.

Funny how some of you found your writeups, while others aren't even close  :lol

EDIT: Did preliminary scores to have a reference when I deliver the final results, and scores range from 3 to +4, all out of five.

EDIT 2: Added my top 100 to the OP now that my list is finished. Of course, all albums and bands on it are banned.

EDIT 3: Deleted a few albums on the list that shouldn't have been there since the bands/artists were banned, and added these:

I guess this one is a grower. Goes places, yes, but seems a bit unfocused.

Well, I really dig those vocal harmonies throughout the song. It has some epic moments too. Yup, I'm quite digging this piece.

I think it is one of those two, I would describe it as unfocused with epic moments  :azn:

Nice, although I wouldn't recommend it - I've sampled some classic albums by Emperor, Mayhem, Burzum, and the like, and they have left me quite underwhelmed. Well, except Ulver's Bergtatt, which is nice, and Mantiis, but that album mixes lots of genres so it never gets boring. Added this opinion on black metal to the "My Tastes" doc, on the Metal section, by the way.

Since you're the first host of a roulette I'm participating that doesn't only 'tolerate' electronic music but actually listens to it a fair amount, I'm probably going bat-shit crazy in this one with some electronic shit, I still want to take the strategic route though so if it's not working I will wuss out and go back to sending prog again or something.

I feel ya- those classic black metal albums are generally underwhelming for me as well. The ones I'm thinking about are a bit more modern and draw a bit more from other genres. Also, less intentionally-bad production than those you listed.

Post by: Sacul on January 18, 2016, 10:21:03 PM
Finally, the so-awaited round 1 entries! Songs are ordered from worst to best :P


(sneakyblueberry) Horse the Band - Cloudwalker
The fuck is this :lol

I'll give you credit for sending me something quite creative. But good ideas alone don't make a song good. See, while this song is enjoyable, I didn't find anything remarkable except the great synth/chiptune work. None of the other instruments really made something that stood out. Not even the use of samples saved this song. It's nice, but nothing special to me. 3/5


(Parama) Cursive - Butcher the Song
I prefer the song you sent biskit by a nice margin :lol

It has an interesting dark circus vibe I quite dig tho. The dissonant guitars don't turn me off actually. But the vocal melodies are pretty lame imo. They fit the style, but I don't really dig them anyways. That's something I've found common in post-hardcore and in a lot of post-punk/punk related music, that their vocal melodies are fairly unmemorable. While this one is enjoyable, I didn't find it special, really. 3/5


(Elite) Jeff Buckley - So Real
Well this is not what I expected. For some reason I thought this guy made more straightforward folk music or something lol. This song is a bit weird, atonal at times, and pretty dark imo. Yet it doesn't appeal me that much. The guitar work and the drumming reminds me a bit of Slint and the vocal melodies to Mr Bungle, for some reason. In general these are some strange melodies. So none of the quotes you chose were yours, sorry - maybe we have different definitions of intimate music? This felt a bit creepy lol. But anyways, I'll end up checking this album. +3/5


(Mikemangioy) Native Construct - Come Hell or High Water
After all the hype this album generated last year I added it to the list, and I guess I can see why. While not reinventing the wheel, these guys combine several styles in a unique way, crafting a sound of their own, something I appreciate a lot. Yet uniqueness doesn't make for a good score alone. This tune definitely goes places, yes, but seems a bit unfocused. Like, for a moment it's pretty heavy and serious, and the other more playful, almost Disney-esque. Nothing bad with that, it's just that I don't feel it works on this particular song. +3/5


(FlyingBISKIT) Chroma Key - America The Video
Ah, Kevin. Dunno up to which point this is cheating, considering my love for Blood and Kevin's work in general, but whatever. The song has some nice electronics, and great guitar work and production. The melodies in general aren't that good to be honest, they feel a bit chessy. Reminds me a bit of Surrounded in that sense, but not as good. Pretty enjoyable, yet not really memorable. 3.5/5


(senecadawg2) Damien Rice - Cannonball
Oh, folk. For some reason I should be really more into this kind of music. I used to think that it was too simple to me - just a person with a guitar, singing and playing. But I guess my issue is that the songwriting isn't really strong, at least not here. Well, maybe its strength relies on the lyrics? As you said, they're poignant ("Life taught me to die" lol), and it's not that I don't care about lyrics in purpose, but they don't really affect my enjoying of a song unless they're awful. I can listen so them, sing along them, understand them, but... for some reason, they don't leave much of an impact on me most of the time, unlike music. Weird thing.

So back to the song, this has some nice acoustic layering, and I like his voice how intimate it all feels. Yet it's nothing too special. I guess I just prefer more ambitious stuff (like Sufjan's Illinoise), or music with clearly different parts, for this felt a bit one-dimensional. Nothing bad, but nothing too remarkable. 3.5/5


(Tyrias) Nightwish - Higher than Hope
I was wondering how long would it take before someone sent me power metal :lol

This is a nice piece, pretty epic at times but also dark, for the lyrics you described to me. Better than most power metal I've heard at least. Reminds me a bit of The Human Equation in the sense that it has nice songwriting and tight insturmentation, and very little cheese, enough for me to bear with it. It doesn't blow me away or anything, but it's more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Don't have much to add, other than I'm curious about this album and band. 3.5/5


(Train of Naught) Royal Blood - Loose Change
Well this is definitely something different - a bass so distorted it sounds like a guitar is a very intriguing idea, indeed, and it has a nice distorted sound. The riffs are pretty good, and this song has a great groove. But... nothing wrong with the tune, is short and catchy, and does its job well. I feel it's a tad bit too short tho, with that abrupt ending. And it sounds a bit too much like The White Stripes at times lol. Will check this album anyways. +3.5/5


(425) Coldplay - Midnight
Well this is pretty nice. I dig the combination of robotic vocals with the real ones. It's both beautiful and relaxing, and pretty minimalistic too. Nice synths section at the middle. I can see why you love this song. Honestly, it took quite some time to grow on me - I think if it wasn't for the 5-6 listens I have given it, it wouldn't have clicked. I may not be 100% sold on Coldplay, but I really like this one, and will check this album. 4/5


(Evermind) Pain of Salvation - Iter Impius
So after checking like half of these guys' discography, and not really digging it, I kinda liked this album so added it to the list to check it later. But forgot to do so lol. This is definitely the best PoS song I've heard so far, without annoying vocal noises. Great vocal performance, and nice solo. The instrumentation wasn't that good overall, with some great moments and a few meh ones. The ending is quite epic tho, and this would definitely be a great closer. Might finally get into these guys' music, or at least on this album. 4/5


(Fluffy Lothario) The Stooges - Fun House
What the hell :lol

Dunno what's going on here, but this is a hella lot of fun - dat sax is awesome. And the singer, the mighty punk godfather Iggy Pop, bro, he's insane. I dig this one quite a lot, yet my complaint is that on the second half he does some weird noises/screams that turn me off a bit. But otherwise, this is excellent. Don't have much to say really, just that I quite enjoyed it. 4/5


(splent) Rush - La Villa Strangiato
Well of course I've listened to La Villa Strangiato, but maybe just one or two times long time ago, so I let this pass. To be honest, although I have listened to little Rush, I definitely prefer their instrumental pieces - YYZ is excellent. And so is this, for it goes many places in almost 10 mins, both serious and fun, yet remains cohesive and interesting enough. Excellent production, too. +4/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Celldweller - Gift For You
So, you did it again :lol

On my previous roulette you sent me a song by Assemblage 23, from the album Compass, despite having another of their albums on my list at the moment. Now, I have The End of An Empire on the list, yet you sent me something from another record :P

About the song - I do love me some industrial. I actually expected a heavier song, but instead this is a... ballad? Anyways, I really dig the atmosphere and the electronic sounds - reminds me a bit of OSI's Blood. This is a pretty interesting piece, with a fantastic production! I would have liked a more energic song in this style, but this tune has grown on me quite a bit, specially the vocal lines. This shouldn't happen, but you got a nice score! +4/5


(home) Rishloo - Just a Ride
So, prog metal? I've gotta admit it's a genre in which I have tough time finding good bands that don't sound generic as fuck - totally the oposite of a progressive genre. This song is a more than welcomed breath of fresh air. The vocal harmonies at the beginning (and througout the song), and most of the vocal melodies remind me a bit of Gazpacho - not complaining though, I really dig them. Excellent how everything feels quite atmospheric. Yup, I dig this. +4/5


(Bolsters) Kishi Bashi - Philosophize in it! Chemicalize with it!
>kishi bashi
>that cover
>song starts
>panic
>song ends
>hey that wasn't too bad!

So after like 6 or so spins, this one has grown quite a lot on me. At times, a bit too sugar-ish for my taste, yes. But man, this is just pure fun, and some excellent joyful stuff. Quite beautiful even. I'm definitely intrigued about this album, yup. My only complaint is that it felt a bit too short. Nothing more to be added, excellent track that didn't expec to like this much. 4.5/5



Standings:
4.5 - Bolsters x
+4 - home x

Dang, the newcomer knows his shit. When LordCost sent me Rishloo I was sure you'd like it too, though I heard that song and I think you'll like Landmines even more.

I'm fine with a +3.5, the ending always leaves me wanting more as well.

Also yea I knew mike sent Native Construct, eexpected the song 'Mute' though  :lol

I'll send R2 today.

Yeah, the song I sent was Higher Than Hope. I'm reasonably happy with that result.
Also, i remember the last final against Evermind, where I literally decided between The Canyon Behind Her and Iter Impius, then went with the former. I also remember you saying you didn't like Iter Impius that much. Anyway, it's quite curious that Evermind nows sends that song in the first round of your next roulette :lol

Also, I'm trying to decide if i should send that Orchestral Dubstep song i've been itching to send in a roulette or if it's too cheesy for you.

Scoring out of 5, and in case I need half a point, a plus (+) will be added.

But seeing how both +4 and 4.5 scores exist and they're clearly different scores, what you wrote in the OP is confusing - because, well, if you add half a point to 4 you'll get 4.5, not some kind of plus.

I can only assume +4 equals 4.25. Therefore, if I get +4 two times, my score will add up to 8.5?

Post by: Fluffy Lothario on January 19, 2016, 02:51:39 AM
There were certain artists that I had noted to myself specifically because I was almost certain they'd be gone in the first few rounds. I was right on Jeff Buckley and Damien Rice.

(Elite) Jeff Buckley - So Real
Well this is not what I expected. For some reason I thought this guy made more straightforward folk music or something lol. This song is a bit weird, atonal at times, and pretty dark imo. Yet it doesn't appeal me that much. The guitar work and the drumming reminds me a bit of Slint and the vocal melodies to Mr Bungle, for some reason. In general these are some strange melodies. So none of the quotes you chose were yours, sorry - maybe we have different definitions of intimate music? This felt a bit creepy lol. But anyways, I'll end up checking this album. +3/5
Some of his tracks are basically just unaccompanied folk, only on an electric guitar. Otherwise, his guitar playing feels folk-informed a lot of the time, to put it vaguely. So Real is IMO the worst song on the album. He wrote it at the last minute because he decided one song he had intended to put on the album was too personal and painful, and pulled it, and he felt he needed something else to complete the album. It's stil great, but almost every other track looms over it.

On Damien Rice: when you said we can't send live material, I wrote off sending him there and then. I've listened to his music semi-constantly since he first appeared, and almost never touched his studio albums. His live performances tear strips off of them, and there's plenty of good ones out there.

(Fluffy Lothario) The Stooges - Fun House
What the hell :lol

Dunno what's going on here, but this is a hella lot of fun - dat sax is awesome. And the singer, the mighty punk godfather Iggy Pop, bro, he's insane. I dig this one quite a lot, yet my complaint is that on the second half he does some weird noises/screams that turn me off a bit. But otherwise, this is excellent. Don't have much to say really, just that I quite enjoyed it. 4/5
His vocals in the second half of the track are definitely the most extreme on the album, but it's still the best song on there, so I went with that.

The entire album is awesome though, and doubly mindblowing when you consider it came out in 1970. Punk didn't even exist for another six years. I've actually had trouble getting into the classic punk albums since I started looking into the albums that get dubbed proto-punk, as proto-punk is infinitely more interesting, and often rocks harder anyway.

Well it wouldn't be controversial if he explained everything.


Also, I forgot to mention when sending my song - if you have a sound system with a subwoofer, I recommend listening to my song on that at least once so you know what's going on in the low end. Or some speakers that can pump out a decent amount of bass, at least. I think the bass enhances my song a great deal and headphones won't do it justice.

I am glad you liked the song I sent! The next one is a bit more a gamble (it's not from your list btw). Sacul, have you ever listened to other Albums from Rishloo? You only have their newest album on your list but I would say both Feathergun and Eidolon are better albums.

When LordCost sent me Rishloo I was sure you'd like it too, though I heard that song and I think you'll like Landmines even more.
Landmines is a great song too  :azn: I was actually hesitating between sending that one and Just A Ride.

So Real is IMO the worst song on the album.

:lol that's hilarious.

He wrote it at the last minute because he decided one song he had intended to put on the album was too personal and painful, and pulled it, and he felt he needed something else to complete the album.

I did not know that though.

 Off to a good start… :-).

 I'll send round two later today. I'm trying to decide between two songs on the same album.

Wish Upon A Blackstar is better than End of an Empire, same as with Compass and whatever other albums Assemblage 23 has.

Will send soon.

He wrote it to replace Forget Her, which is now included as Track 11 / a bonus track of sorts in modern pressings of the album anyway.

I did not know that though.

I can only assume +4 equals 4.25. Therefore, if I get +4 two times, my score will add up to 8.5?
Yes, and yes. I realise it wasn't too clear on the OP, so I've fixed it  :tup .

On Damien Rice: when you said we can't send live material, I wrote off sending him there and then. I've listened to his music semi-constantly since he first appeared, and almost never touched his studio albums. His live performances tear strips off of them, and there's plenty of good ones out there.
Oh, I'm aware some artists are way better live than in studio, so let me reconsider the rule about sending live material for a few days  :smiley:


The entire album is awesome though, and doubly mindblowing when you consider it came out in 1970. Punk didn't even exist for another six years. I've actually had trouble getting into the classic punk albums since I started looking into the albums that get dubbed proto-punk, as proto-punk is infinitely more interesting, and often rocks harder anyway.
Sounds excellent! Will explore a bit of this proto-punk thing after the roulette is over, seems up my alley :P

So, another question: is Nightwish now banned or I can send something from Imaginaerum, as this album is on your list too?

Oh, and also, sending shortly. You have that album on the list I know of, but the thing is, it has seven tracks, two of them are intros under 2 minutes long, three of them are 5 minutes long and the best two tracks are 11:48 and 10:32. :lol Just need to decide if I should pick another album or send a 5 minutes long song.

Well, if the 10:32 song has like 2 seconds of silence or the like, then you can send it. But make sure it's worth it :P

Regarding roulette bans:
Every artist/band sent on the roulette whose song has received a 3.5 or more, is banned.

Is this for both your first and current Roulette? Just noticed that I should send a new song if it's also for your first roulette :p

I don't think it applies for his first. I was able to send Pain of Salvation again, and they got 3.5 last time.

Tyrias, I actually very seriously considered sending Higher Than Hope! :lol I figured if there was a chance of getting Sacul to like a Nightwish song, that would probably be the best one to go with.

Always happy to get a good score for Midnight, and it makes me very happy when people like it. :tup Still on the quest to find that one person who will give it that perfect score, though...

Will send :soon:

Yeah, I would have considered meadows of heaven as well, but DPP wasn’t on his list. Anyway, sent for the next round. Some folk this time, not Power Metal.

I've listened to everything at least twice now, and I've gotta say, I'm loving the variety of these tracks  :metal

Will post sneak-peek when I get them all.

EDIT: Added a Spotify playlist with round 1 entries. If anyone wants to make a YT one, just do it and PM me the link :P

Also, added bands/artists that are available for re-entry on the second post.

Post by: Sacul on January 20, 2016, 09:25:15 PM
Interesting, two people sent the same band, and album but different tunes. I'll just leave these here, by the way:


...added their [album] to the list because one of its songs was pretty good, and creative. This, on the other hand... sounds a bit generic.

Oh, the [decade]. Strange and fascinating times.

Mmnn this is pretty nice I guess.

Now I regret not exploring more of these guys' music - this one is pretty good, specially the piano work.

Those distant vocals with reverb, man... I fucking love those. It's a bit of a fetish.

I like this, is pretty chill. Dunno what genre this is, but I like what I hear.

Well this is pretty good actually, but I feel I've listened to better songs on this style, like most of what [artist] does is better than this.

More Power Metal?

Well this is nice and catchy. I prefer the other song by them lol

I don't know what's going on here, but damn, the feels are strong.

...but the instrumentation is wonderful, so beautiful, vivid and innocent - yes.

This has some great [instrument] work, but man... his voice. Just... no.

Nigga pls.

Well this one definitely goes many places, and has some excellent parts, but a few meh ones.

No problem with this one, I like these sounds and rhythms, but... it just goes nowhere.

Well, definitely the best out of the two I received. Really like the atmosphere of this track, even though it's a bit of an unusual one for this kind of music, I dig it.

I may actually get into there guy's music, for it seems their last album is up my alley.



Oh, and there are two fake tidbits here. Good luck!

Mine is probably 3.

Thinking about my song, I have no idea why I've sent it because I don't even like it that much. :facepalm: However, I've got a perfect retort for your write-up if you'll write what I think you'll write.

And if it will seem I've got no chance to win, I'll stop sending songs from the list and send all my prepared songs, and if I'm still isn't in position to win, I'll go with Winger - Seventeen and tunes like that for the last three picks.

Title: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! - ROUND TWO RESULTS! SEND FOR R3!!!
Post by: Sacul on January 23, 2016, 08:12:23 PM
You guys are awesome  :rollin

First of all, I think this round turned out better than expected - lots of songs grew on me a bit. Now, results:


(splent) Yellow Magic Orchestra - Behind the Mask
Oh, the 70s. Strange and fascinating times. This is a pretty fun song, with those robotic vocals. Doesn't do much for me tho - if Michael Jackson was blown away with it, that only means he and I have very different tastes. +3/5


(425) Bon Iver - Skinny Love
Oh I've heard of this albums' legend - Vernon shut himself in a cabin for 3 months, pouring all of his demons into music. That alone is haunting. But, as sad as it makes me... that's not what I look for in music. Because I actually look for music, not lyrical content, as heart-breaking it might be. Not because I actively decide not to care, but, as I explained on seneca's previous entry, lyrics just don't connect with me. Hell, he could have been singing about sausages with mustard, and I'd still have given this the same score. Because, well... this is nice. But just that. +3/5


(mikemangioy) Twelve Foot Ninja - One Hand Killing
I remember these guys from plug sessions - added their debut to the list because one of its songs was pretty good, and creative. This, on the other hand... sounds a bit generic. Nothing bad per se on it, but there are quite some part I feel I've heard elsewhere, and maybe done better. +3/5


(sneakyblueberry) Hiatus Kaiyote - Breathing Underwater
I like this, is pretty chill. Dunno what genre this is, but I like what I hear. Yet it doesn't do much to me. Maybe it's the pretty repetitive vocal melodies? 3.5/5


(Tyrias) The Tallest Man on Earth - Love is All
I have to admit it took lots of listen for this to grow on me. And with "this" I mean his voice. It's rough, it's high-pitched, it's... nice. It definitely fits the "lonely travelling singer-songwriter" image I created in my head. Now that is no longer a problem, time to focus on the guitar. Which isn't bad by any means, but doesn't really move me or anything - it's just there, playing nice notes. Interesting piece all in all. 3.5/5


(Evermind) Enigma - Knocking on Forbidden Doors
Well this is pretty good actually, but I feel I've listened to better songs on this style, like most of what DJ Shadow does is better than this. Not your fault, it's just that I really dig this kind of music and have explored it a lot these last months, so it will be a bit difficult to please me on this field. Is it really all sampled? I feel the guitar sounds and the chantings were recorded for this song. Not that it matters much tho. All in all, great atmosphere and sounds, yet it feels a bit inventive after a while, since it doesn't really feel like it evolves throughout it. 3.5/5


(Train of Naught) Koan Sound - Sly Fox
Well, I've gotta admit this one took quite some time to grow. At first, it felt very one-dimensional, and while it might not be the most varied piece I've received on the roulette so far, it's pretty good at what it does. Nice grooves and effects. Nothing too special, but not as bad as I thought it initially was. Well... shall we dance? +3.5/5


(Bolsters) CHVRCHES - You Caught the Light
Sadly, I have no subwoofers, not my headphones have a big bass response -actually I prefer it that way, I'm not a bass-whore- but I get what you mean - lots of subtle details are on the bass section. So, at first this was the best out of the two CHVRCHES songs I received. Really like the atmosphere of this track, very chill, and even though it's a bit of an unusual one for this kind of music, I dig it. Maybe a bit too simple? 4/5


(senecadawg2) The Antlers - Kettering
This song already starts very well, with a sweet piano and simple vocals. Then slowly reaches a splendid climax. Although the atmosphere is minimalist, this is quite a moving moment. Then, a quiet outro. And, well... that's it. While I quite loath pieces that take too long to build up to a climax (like a lot of post-rock), this one, on the other hand, felt too short for its own good - it left me desiring more. Maybe it works better in the context of the album? 4/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) CHVRCHES - The Mother We Share
At first... I didn't want to like this. Because lots of these sounds are used in some pretty lame pop radio hits. But took me some listens to realize how this one is different from typical pop bullshit - it's emotional without using cheap drama. And with some pretty creative songwriting. Maybe with more spins I'll end up liking it more. 4/5


(FlyingBISKIT) The Dear Hunter - At the End of the Earth
Well, while I quite liked the other TDH song you showed me (and for some reason forgot to add to my list), I've gotta say this one didn't disappoint - excellent atmosphere and songwriting. Yet the weakest link I find is, as with all of the other albums by them I've checked, is their vocal melodies. The singer is good, but what he sings ends up being rather unmemorable - a thing that has quite improved on this one, yet still doesn't convince me. Anyways, I may actually get into these guy's music, for it seems their last album is up my alley. 4/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Machine Head - A Farewell to Arms
If I picked apart the different sections of this song, each on its own wouldn't feel very remarkable nor original. Yet as a unique piece, I'm amazed at how they all flow into each other - really a case where the whole works better than the sum of its parts. Excellent guitar work and drumming in general. For some reason I feel I should like this one more than I do. Maybe because even 5-6 listens aren't enough to fully process what's going on here. Anyways, excellent track - will surely check this album. +4/5


(Elite) Alt-J - Taro
Well, this is way better than your last submission. Very nice little piece, and great vocals, except at times when his voice becomes a bit harsh or nasal. But the instrumentation is wonderful, specially that part that appears at 1.20 and is repeated sometimes, so beautiful, vivid and innocent - yes. Music like this can be quite cheesy honestly, and turn me off (*cough* Disney *cough*), but when it's good (like Ommadawn, or Hurtbreak Wonderland, or like this), it's like the best thing ever. Or almost. I don't have much to add, other than I liked this a lot. 4.5/5


(home) Fair to Midland - Orphan Anthem 86'
Now I regret not exploring more of these guys' music - this one is pretty epic, and crushing, specially the excellent piano work. don't have much to say about it, really - well, maybe the vocal melodies, that wouldn't be my cuppa tea, work perfect here. Top notch instrumentation too. It's just very, very good. 4.5/5


(Parama) The Angelic Process - Dying in A-Minor
If a word defines this song, that is: crushing. And I really like this. Those distant vocals with reverb, man... I fucking love those. It's a bit of a fetish. The raw emotion of this... damn. It strikes home. All I can imagine while listening to it is someone slowly drowning at the bottom of the sea while recreating painful memories. Really a dark emotional piece, reminds me of Deathconsciousness' heaviest, most intense moments like Earthmover. Definitely didn't expect to like this one this much - was between a 4.5 and a +4.5, but went with the former by now. Maybe after listening to it in a few weeks, or in the album context it will grow a bit more. 4.5/5

Standings:
+8.5 - home x
8.5 - Bolsters xx
+8 - Shadow Ninja 2.0 x
+8 - Fluffy Lothario xx
+7.5 - Elite xx
7.5 - splent xx
7.5 - Evermind xx
7.5 - Train of Naught x
7.5 - senecadawg2 xx
7.5 - Biskit x
7.5 - Parama xx
+7 - 425 xx
7 - Tyrias xx
6.5 - mikemangioy x
6.5 - Sneakyblueberry x

(x= one song sent from the list)

The new guy strikes again! Wondering if he will be able to keep this rate. After a faulty beginning, Elite has managed to climb to the top 5 (which remains basically unchanged), leaving a disappointed splent behind (sorry not sorry), which suggests the elitist player he might have done a bit of research - if that's the case, then it has quite paid off. In the meantime, there's a heavy competition in the middle ground, and everybody has a chance to enter the glorious top 5, and thus reach the finals, if they play their cards with wisdom. But 425 and Tyrias, who had a strong opening, have fallen down quite a bit, but stil have chances to make up for their choices. And we finish with sneaky and mikemangioy who, I suspect, have no idea of what they are doing on this roulette. "Damn, I should have sent Adrenaline Mob or Winger..." grumbled one of them. But fear not, my friends! For there are still many rounds ahead, and who knows, there might be a dramatic turn of events (pun not intended) before this ends.

I have now added a Spotify playlist of Round 2 in the OP, and also a "Best of Roulette" one, with any song that receives a 4 or more from now on. If any of you wants to make a YT one, feel free to do so and PM me the link so I add it :P

Sent.

The Tallest Man on Earth's The Wild Hunt is an awesome album, and Bon Iver's For Emma is even better, just squeezed its way into the 50-75 bracket on my fav albums list (in my post-write-up reshuffle). But I didn't send it, because I didn't think it's the kind of album where any of the songs would hit very hard if you remove them from the context of the album.

Also, Antlers have been languishing on my to-check-out list since their first big album. They've pretty high up in the last year or so though.

What if you have an album on your list, by a particular band, and we know that they have another quite similar album (in style and quality) and we want to send you something from it. Would you add that second album to the list, or would that have to count as one of our five, non-list songs?
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! - ROUND TWO RESULTS! SEND FOR R3!!!
Post by: Sacul on January 23, 2016, 09:43:52 PM
The later. If a band has more than an album on the list it means that they are very different in style (like the Bowie records I have there), or are very praised and couldn't just leave one.

The thing about YMO... That was released in 1979. They were one of the first bands to do music like this. It was pretty groundbreaking for the time.

Gotta rethink my strategy now with Chvrches being taken... GAH... Torn between two or three songs...

Well, I actually do really like his guitar playing and think it's special, but opinions and stuff. He's a lot better live than in studio though, that's for sure.

Sent for round 3 as well. Hope you like it as much as the song deserves this time :).

Alright, well, whatever. No Winger for you then. Yet.

I'm just going to keep sending songs with whatever results I'll get. That's kinda the reason I don't play in roulettes where I know our tastes don't align almost at all.

Will send later today.

Noooooo!

I literally wanted to send A Farewell to Arms this round  :'( but I'mstill glad you liked it.
Also noticed today that TDH wasn't on the banned list so I wanted to send thst as well.

Ah well, will send R3 in a bit, and glad you liked Sly Fox, the thing that pushed me to send it was the intro, I thought you'd dig those lounge-type piano and bass a lot  :tup

EDIT: Damnit, just read the spotify idea, I'm 0.25 points short of making the playlist twice in a row  :'( Nonetheless I think this is the best score I got for an electronic song apart from Witchcraft in FBK's roulette.

(425) Bon Iver - Skinny Love
Oh I've heard of this albums' legend - Vernon shut himself in a cabin for 3 months, pouring all of his demons into music. That alone is haunting. But, as sad as it makes me... that's not what I look for in music. Because I actually look for music, not lyrical content, as heart-breaking it might be. Not because I actively decide not to care, but, as I explained on seneca's previous entry, lyrics just don't connect with me. Hell, he could have been singing about sausages with mustard, and I'd still have given this the same score. Because, well... this is nice. But just that.

The funny thing is, the lyrics on most Bon Iver shit is pretty much nonsense anyway, and mostly work phonetically.  FE,FA is a great album, and has a fantastically eerie vibe.  I'm quite fond of the second album tho.

I was really disappointed with the second album. The production is really weird and oversaturated, none of the songs go anywhere, and while For Emma's vocals are hard to decipher some of the time, it never impeded my enjoyment of the album, whereas on the second album, I just found myself frustrated every time I listened to it because I couldn't hear a thing he was saying.

For Emma was the business though.

Post by: sneakyblueberry on January 24, 2016, 05:51:27 AM
Really?  That's funny.  I think, I heard them in reverse order, with the self-titled first, so I'm biased towards it.  I hear what you're saying with the songs, they do seem to meander a bit, but for some reason it's never really impeded my enjoyment of it.

I think Perth -> Minnesota, WI is right up there with Mojo Pin -> Grace as the best one-two album openers ever.  And the way Minnesota opens is majestic - I love how there's this wash of layered guitar that somehow dovetails with that big obnoxious drum fill into a syncopated skank rhythm.  Part of the magic is in how I can never really figure out how it gets there.

Ha, I guessed right!  Sent the entry for the third round, I was quite suprised that the album the song is off is on your list :p No clue if you'll like it, we'll see.

By the way, if you want to check out more of Fair To Midland, I would suggest listening to: Fables from a Mayfly or Arrows and Anchors. Fables from a Mayfly is more focused and more "beautifull" whereas Arrows and Anchors is more raw and diverse.

Hmm. The name drop in the Metallica song is bad, but "Don't be judgmental it's our way of life" is basically the slogan of being 14 years old. It's tough to pick.

I don't know what I'm sending yet, but it's probably not going to be Metallica, and it's certainly not going to be anything off Kill 'Em All.

Yeah. It's pretty kickass metal though, what I've sent.

I was thinking about something from Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath, but I was kinda worried that dated production will bother him. On the other hand, the bass really grooves on that album. I might send it later.

I definitely encourage you to show me stuff outside my comfort zone  :tup

I think the only case where it'd bother me is if the production is really lame, and muddy. Or like DT12 :P

If it helps, I'll say that I've been quite getting into stoner rock as of late, and since the early Sabbath albums seem to be kinda like that, well, I may like them .

Heaven and Hell is basically perfect heavy metal. I might send them in R4 or R5, I don't have a lot of choices from the list anyway. And, well, if that goes bad, I may screw my plan of sending the five tracks I've picked out already for the latter rounds and just go with the metal approach all the way.

The good thing about playing in a roulette like this, where every round is scored equally and they're all open, is that you can frontload the stuff that you think other people might take, and then send your more obscure picks in the later rounds.

Pre-posting edit: Sacul posts the same sentiment right at the same time as I do.

I just scanned the list before the first round and made my own vague list of 8 to 10 songs I could send, giving myself some leeway in case some artists were taken, as was the case with Jeff Buckley, for example. My first five picks will be anything still available on that list. I definitely expect at least one more to go before I get to it, if not as many as 3 or 4.

After those first 5 rounds, the deluge.

We can't be friends then.

Currently listening to an album I never listened to in full before because I'm running short on 'the mighty list' songs that I actually like, the idea is fun but you can expect to get worse songs than normal, maybe I'll recommend better songs of a better album if you liked the submission alright.

Yea but to be fair A Farewell to Arms was my #2 choice, I only wanted to send it if I needed to have another list-submission, if you followed my top 50 you know I prefer Unto the Locust so you probably would've gotten Pearls Before the Swine, This is the End or Darkness Within. If you'll like The Blackening at all (which I assume you will check out) you should at least give them a try at some point in your life.

Every submission I receive from the list, is an album I'll check out even if your song sucked. You could almost say this roulette is a way to organize what albums from the list I'll listen to first :lol

Time for sneakpeeks! Notice these are 4th listen impressions (I never trust my first ones, not anymore), so they should be somehow accurate of the final writeups. Preliminar scores ranges about the same as last round, and I'd say this one has been a bit more consistent if anything. Oh, and two people have sent the same band, but different albums, one on the list and the other not. Have fun!


Ohboy, this is like the 4th song with a buildup on this round, what the hell :lol

Well this is pretty nice and chill, I like the unconventional instrumentation. My complaint is that it drags, really.

I really dig the vocal harmonies on this song, and the general vibe of it, quite melancholic.

I get how many will like this, but I prefer my metal more... unique. Not derivative nor generic, with Alter Bridge being the exception because their songwriting is top-notch.

Honestly, I prefer the other song by these guys by a nice margin.

What turns me off from most [genre] albums, and has slowed down my exploration of it is the huge amount of CRAPPY covers. This one, eh... it's alright.

First thing I notice, these guys, despite their influences, have a personal sound, and I always appreciate that.... The best chorus of the round, and maybe of the roulette? It's just excellent.

For being such a long tune, this actually flows very well, and feels shorter. Pretty creative tune.

My problem is, the more I go back in time, the less I'm likely to find pieces I relate to. Maybe had I been born in the [decade], I would have loved this song.

It's pretty badass, yes, but, well... this kind of thing it's not for me.

Honestly, I have never given [band] a fair chance. And this is better than expected.

This is the kind of buildup I like, where something new appears every several bars, so the song keeps evolving and it never gets boring.

I don't know what kind of music this is, other than gorgeous.

This is the kind of music I've heard quite a lot on radios, as in a very similar vein, and had never intrigued me. This, on the other, is very well written.

This is a song that, despite having listened to it several times, I can't remember a single thing from it, besides the beginning. It's nice, but nothing too special tbh.

I think one of these two is about the song I sent.


Fair to Midland - Inter.Funda.Stifle (this was added as a reminder to check this album - band is banned)



Most of the songs from Inter.Funda.Stifle made it to Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True which has a much better production. (Inter.Funda.Stifle was self-produced I believe) So I'd suggest listening to Fables first, well unless you prefer the raw production on Inter.Funda.Stifle which has a certain charm I think. ;)

Despite me being in a big musical exploration these last weeks (mainly for roulette purposes :P), the next list update before results will likely be the last one, since I've been finding less and less good stuff as of late, and I already have a shit ton of records to check, and most big, iconic ones covered, so if I have to update the list again, it will be a few rounds later, and maybe just one of two albums.

Also, my PC is on mantainance, and should be ready tomorrow at best, but if not, results will likely be pushed back to Saturday. We'll see what happens - stay tuned.

I think we should make an agreement that if it is, let's both send it and hope he will allow us to get the same score. I just found out about this album and this song in particular is a gem. But mine is 12:04 so we can't possibly be talking about the same song

Results! Pleae mind that they're NOT in order "from worst to best", as that would take me a lot of time on my phone. I've gotta say, I feel this round is, while not stronger than the previous ones, it's the most consistent of them all.


(mikemangioy) Nevermore - The River Dragon Has Come
Well this is pretty heavy. But it sounds a bit uninventive to me, honestly. And while that might not be a problem per se (see Alter Bridge), there's nothing too, eh... remarkable on this. I get how many will like this, but I prefer my metal more... unique. Not derivative nor generic, with AB being the exception because their songwriting is top-notch. Come on, nigga, step up your game! I won your roulette, you deserve to do better. 3/5


(Bolsters) Frost* - Snowman
This is a song that, despite having listened to it several times, I can't recall a single thing from it, besides the beginning. I dig the electronic elements tho. It's nice, but nothing too special tbh. +3/5


(Evermind) Primal Fear - Inseminoid
Is this heavy metal or power metal? :P

To be honest, I can't see how me liking (actually, LOVING) Operation: Mindcrime would somehow make me likely to enjoy this - I feel both are pretty different. One has amazing riffs, killer drumming, and catchy vocal melodies. This is some catchy metal, but it doesn't do much for me. The drumming feels like doing the same thing for like 80% of the song, to the point where the drum kick starts to annoy me a bit. It's pretty badass, yes, but, well... this kind of thing it's not for me. Feels like they're trying too hard to be "metal as fuck" or something. Maybe the song's lyrics have something to do :lol

It's kind of generic, honestly. Like, I don't feel these guys have a unique sound, and that's something that turns me off. Nothing bad, but nothing remarkable. +3/5


(Train of Naught) Blue Öyster Cult - Astronomy
This is a pretty interesting piece, and dunno why I even included this album on the list. My problem is, the more I go back in time, the less I'm likely to find pieces I relate to. Maybe had I been born in the 70s, I would have loved this song. But it's just something about its particular melodies that doesn't strike me as particularly memorable. Oh, the chorus is pretty good, but the rest, specially considering the synth work... no. Is that kind of work that turns me off from most 70s and classic prog I've listened to. +3/5


(home) The Beatles - A Day In The Life
Honestly, I have never given The Beatles a fair chance. And this is better than expected. But... it's pretty weird, honestly. There's a pretty dark section before the middle, that repeats again near the end of the song. It's not bad on itself, but feels really awkward on the song context. Well, at least I can see why this album was groundbreaking at the time. And the outro... no. Just no. A weird loop repeating for 30s, why? 3.5/5


(FlyingBIZKIT) Incubus - Aqueous Transmission
Definitely didn't expect a track like this from these guys. I think they play some funk metal, or the like? Well this is pretty nice and chill, I like the unconventional instrumentation, the soft vocals, and the quiet percussion. My complaint is that it drags, really. 3.5/5


(senecadawg2) Foals - Spanish Sahara
This post-rock formula of long buildups is interesting, but I feel some bands pull it off better than others. Or in better albums than others lol. Because, this buildup didn't really pay off in my opinion. Honestly, I prefer the other song by these guys by a nice margin. +3.5/5


(425) Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlanticism
Ohboy, this is like the 4th song with a buildup on this round, what the hell :lol
Well, if it's a great buildup, one of those that add new details very few bars, I love them. If they only get faster or louder, well... meh.

This is a beautiful, emotive song, but its buildup structure is kinda bad executed, it just takes too long to reach the climax - imo a good buildup shouldn't take more than 5 mins. Oh, it's awesome when it reaches the best part, but feels one-dimensional for most of the song. Nothing is bad on this song (actually the melodies are very good) per se, except how it's written, and it makes this a tiring experience. Maybe if this had a break on the middle I'd have liked it more. +3.5/5


(sneakyblueberry) Frank Ocean - Pyramids
The first thing that popped in my mind is that this reminds me of those lame Drake songs, and a lot of modern, mainstream music. I think it's safe to say they got inspiration from this guy. This style is very interesting, and after like 6 listens I could finally shake all those lame songs' feelings - this is better written. For being such a long tune, this actually flows very well, and feels shorter. Pretty creative tune - please, keep sending stuff from outside my comfort zone. 4/5


(splent) OutKast - B.O.B.
What turns me off from most hip-hop albums, and has slowed down my exploration of it is the huge amount of CRAPPY covers. This one, eh... it's alright.
This tune has some great beats and rapping, and it's more varied than I'd have imagined, with that choir and the guitar bits. I dig it. 4/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Streetlight Manifesto - If and When We Rise Again
Ah, ska. This is the kind of music I've heard quite a lot on radios, as in a very similar vein, and had never intrigued me. This, on the other, is very well written. And lots of fun. The little chorus is great. It might not blow my mind, but I quite enjoy this. Excellent instrumentation. +4/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) múm - We Have A Map Of The Piano
I don't know what kind of music this is, other than gorgeous. This is a nice little, innocent song. I prefer the other one you were about to send me, but couldn't (sorry :lol ). But this piece is very intriguing. Almost childish, but in a good way. Yup, I like this combination of acoustic instruments with some minimal electronics. +4/5


(Parama) Mew - Comforting Sounds
I can see why this is one of your favorite songs. It's a very emotional one. Despite its length (I feel it drags a little bit tbh), I find myself liking this more with each listen. This is the kind of buildup I like, where something new appears every several bars, so the song keeps evolving and it never gets boring. My only complain is that the whole song is a fucking buildup, and at almost 9 mins, is a bit exhausting, considering the best part, by far, is the second half - when it reaches the climax, it's glorious. +4/5


(Elite) Arcade Fire - Wake Up
Oh Arcade Fire. One of the last big indie bands, and you send me something from their most iconic album. Nice. I really dig the vocal harmonies on this song, and the general vibe of it, quite melancholic. Great violin work btw. Not much more to add, other than while it didn't blow my mind, I quite enjoyed this. +4/5


(Tyrias) Foals - Inhaler
This is every intriguing piece. First thing I notice, these guys, despite their alternative rock influences, have a personal sound, and I always appreciate that. The chorus here is just fantastic, with, those post-rocky guitars, and that great climax. The best chorus of the round, and maybe of the roulette? It's just excellent. SPAAAAACEEE. I need to check this album right now, this is excellent. 4.5/5

Mr Fluffy has proved not only to have a great music taste, but also the ability of picking songs outside my comfort zone that I quite enjoy. But WAIT A MINUTE. How the hell is Shadow Ninja doing SO WELL on this roulette?!? I'm as surprised as him I guess. In the meantime, home and Bolsters, who shined on the first 2 rounds have slipped a bit on this one, but still have strong chances to win if they know what to send. Either Tyrias or splent can enter the top 5 now, closely followed by seneca, who surprises me isn't annihilating everyone's ass at this point. The middle section is pretty hectic right now, so with a bit of luck, anybody can climb to the top 5. And mikemangioy still regrets not having sent Adrenaline Mob :P

Oh, and you have 24 hours to send

ALSO READ THIS: I've decided to allow live songs, as some tunes outdo their studio versions. The same rules apply as with normal submissions: if a band/artist is banned, or if your song belongs originally to an album that has a ranking on the list, good or bad, you CAN'T send it. Good luck!

oh yeah i should comment on results.

1. what other mum song did he want to send you? he picked one of the better tracks IMO (that and Now There's That Fear Again are probably my favorites but the whole album is excellent)
2. that's about as good as i could've hoped from you, I guess  :lol
3. i guess i should listen to that other Foals song, but Spanish Sahara is actually great and you're wrong  :hat
4. i was considering sending Power Out from Arcade Fire but it didn't make the cut. that's like the only Arcade Fire song I've ever listened to a lot, Funeral was okay but didn't do a ton for me as a whole


Glory and Gore is a decent choice but I dunno if that'd make my top 5 from even the main album  :lol

I don't agree with Tennis Court and maybe not Ribs, but then you can replace them with White Teeth Teens and A World Alone and get the same result

and Bravado, The Love Club, and Swingin' Party off the bonus tracks too
i was sort of considering Bravado since it's great but it's technically not on the album so I don't know if Sacul would've counted it  :P

There's just something I really love about Tennis Court. Probably all the catchy af vocal parts. Ribs is just pure atmosphere, I didn't like it that much at first, but it just stuck with me. White Teeth Teens might be my least favorite on the album, but only by proxy. A World Alone is also very awesome.

I need to listen to the bonus tracks more. I have them, but I've only played them a couple of times.

And the outro... no. Just no. A weird loop repeating for 30s, why? 3.5/5
I'm not certain, but I think this was one of those albums that, on record, was rigged to loop forever when it reached the end. The thirty seconds of that weird thing looping emulates what went on forever on the record. You could kind of regard it to occur once or twice and call that the end of the song.

Mr Fluffy has proved not only to have a great music taste, but also the ability of picking songs outside my comfort zone that I quite enjoy.
And I still gotta send some jazz yet.

Not much more to add, other than while it didn't blow my mind, I quite enjoyed this. +4/5

My first experience with this song was underwhelming, to be honest. But back then I wasn't really that much into music outside my comfort zone. I love the rawness and honesty of not only this track, but the entire record. It can be found in every instrument and in every vocal line. This band isn't there to make 'perfect(ly produced)' music, they just write very good songs. Glad you enjoyed it, but do check out the rest of Funeral as well.

The first thing that popped in my mind is that this reminds me of those lame Drake songs, and a lot of modern, mainstream music. I think it's safe to say they got inspiration from this guy. This style is very interesting, and after like 6 listens I could finally shake all those lame songs' feelings - this is better written. For being such a long tune, this actually flows very well, and feels shorter. Pretty creative tune - please, keep sending stuff from outside my comfort zone. 4/5

Glad you enjoyed it.  I remember having the same first impression of this album when I first heard it, but after listening to it a few times it's clear to see that this album is much more than that.  If Drake could write and sing half as well as Frank O then I would be a big Drake fan.  But he can't.  So I'm not.

Channel Orange is pretty much the album that pioneered that 'modern, mainstream' - much like The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in the 90s, this is the the album that has spawned countless imitators in the 2010s.  None of them come close to this album.  I would rate it up there with MBDTF as one of the landmark hip-hop/rnb albums of all time, it has a similar vibe for me, but obviously with less rap and more emphasis on melody and great hooks.  It manages to be as amazing as MBDTF with half the effort, half the instrumentation and half the collaborators. 

Anyways, sent some prog metal. lol

I really like it, it would make my top 20, maybe top 10.  For sure.  Miseducation is great but I can't stomach much of it anymore.  I have this really weird memory in my head this girl I knew singing along to Doo Wop (That Thing) and recording it and thinking she was so awesome (she wasn't) and she's one of the most annoying, self centered people I know, so now that I associate that album with her I can't listen to it.  I have the same problem with another douchey guy I know who goes on and on about Foo Fighters.  I USED to like Foo Fighters.

I'm going to send a live song because I can now. The live version of the song I'll sent has so much more groove than the studio version  :hat (Though it would perhaps be smarter to send a song from your list I think)


(home) The Beatles - A Day In The Life
Honestly, I have never given The Beatles a fair chance. And this is better than expected. But... it's pretty weird, honestly. There's a pretty dark section before the middle, that repeats again near the end of the song. It's not bad on itself, but feels really awkward on the song context. Well, at least I can see why this album was groundbreaking at the time. And the outro... no. Just no. A weird loop repeating for 30s, why? 3.5/5


I'd never given the Beatles a fair chance (until a few months ago) too! Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heartsclub Band is one of my favourite albums now  I never considered that loop to be really part of the song actually (but it was on the youtube link I sent I know) The first few times I listened to Sgt Pepper I turned the album off before the loop started because I thought the album was finsihed :lol Was quite suprised when I heard a few listens lately, I see it more as a funny gimmick or something now.


In the meantime, home and Bolsters, who shined on the first 2 rounds have slipped a bit on this one, but still have strong chances to win if they know what to send.
Well I had more confidence in Snowman than either of my previous submissions, so I wouldn't count on it.

I believe albums with awful covers either reflect bad taste, or the artist not caring about that. So how can I know if it cared aboutthe music? IIt's part of the whole experience imo. Not that a nice cover would improve my perception of the music, but it triggers me how some don't even care about it.

And let's admit that like half of hip-hop album covers are guys with loads of money, cars, and whores, or just a bunch of them being 'thug' and Iooking tough :lol

I don't really understand your tastes, Sacul. I thought we were more compatible, but it seems I was wrong(?)
You know, even after dedicating tons of thought hours to it, and even writing a 5-page essay on my tastes, I realise they make little sense, for I have failed to find something that ties them all. Whenever I find something, appears this thing that contradicts it, and it all becomes pointless. If it helps, Steven Wilson, my favorite artist at the moment, represents everything I like in music. He never repeats himself (or at least tries, unlike AC/DC :P), has a very unique style of his own, sings short, simple, but catchy vocal melodies, his music mixes lots of different, eclectic influences, etc. But I also fucking love Anathema, who make some of the most emotional music I know. So, yeah. :lol

If I send you a live version of a song from a list album that has a substantively different arrangement than the album version, does that count as a list submission or not? Not sure I'm going to do this, but I'd like to know if it's an option.

I don't really understand your tastes, Sacul. I thought we were more compatible, but it seems I was wrong(?)
You know, even after dedicating tons of thought hours to it, and even writing a 5-page essay on my tastes, I realise they make little sense, for I have failed to find something that ties them all. Whenever I find something, appears this thing that contradicts it, and it all becomes pointless. If it helps, Steven Wilson, my favorite artist at the moment, represents everything I like in music. He never repeats himself (or at least tries, unlike AC/DC :P), has a very unique style of his own, sings short, simple, but catchy vocal melodies, his music mixes lots of different, eclectic influences, etc. But I also fucking love Anathema, who make some of the most emotional music I know. So, yeah. :lol
You're never gonna be able to sum up your taste in music in one sentence, and there's always a chance there will be an exception to any rule.

Based on your Top 50 and the roulette so far, this is your taste in 5 points.

- the 90s seems to be about your cutoff. From there back, the music mostly feels too dated for you to appreciate it much, UNLESS it's one of those rare albums that, by some miracle of its production and/or songwriting, manages to skirt feeling old, like Dark Side of the Moon (and the reason I sent Fun House is it is in that category, to me). You seem pulled in by younger genres - modern electronic and rap only came about in the late 80s/early 90s, and production-wise, they almost have to sound very modern to avoid being shit. Your dislike of high-pitched singers fits here, that style is fairly dated, used by either remnants of the 70s/80s or modern bands looking back on that. Ditto for 80s production.

- You seem to like music that goes beyond the normal and conventional. Regardless of the genre, it has to be doing something that doesn't sound like the "standard" of that genre. I can't imagine you would like the Foo Fighters or grunge (the radio side, at least) very much, or, as you said, ACDC, or Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers or basically any 50s-60s hard bop/postbop/modal jazz, or much of any 80s thrash. I love it when a band can do something standard incredibly well, I mean, the standard is standard because certain bands did it really well, but you seem to be like, "eh, this bores me".

- You seem fairly adverse to sparse arrangements, and music with either sustained passages of quietness, or where the quiet is the point of the song. The folk people have sent, you're like, "this is good, but this is just a guy and a guitar, there ain't enough going on". You mention not caring for ambient music. I was thinking of sending Tangerine Dream, but then realised that would be a disaster. I'd say a mixture of this and the last point is the reason you didn't dig Kind of Blue, and again hard bop/post-bop/modal jazz in general - regardless of the size of the band, there's only ever one guy soloing with a bass/piano/drums framework. The music has to feel sufficiently busy.

- Like a good chunk of DTF, you are drawn to the genres that are generally darker-hued. So metal obviously (though more the late-90s onwards stuff that becomes hard to safely plonk into a specific metal sub-genre, like Devin Townsend and Ulver, stuff that has little sense of the "standard" to it), but then post-rock, electronic, and particularly trip-hop, the whole somber Steven Wilson angle of prog and rock, etc.

- You've said you don't care what the lyrical content is, but at the same time emphasise the plus factor of "feels", so you obviously care more for music that carries an emotional message through the music alone. Something which is really not that common, I don't think. I'd say in most music, the impact is conveyed through a mix of music and lyrics/themes, and the music is written to support the lyrics and their message and vice versa. In terms of vocals, for you, the melodies matter more than the words. This point would also be why, even though you're into prog, you're not interested in the technicality side of it.
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! - ROUND 3 RESULTS! SEND FOR R4!!!!
Post by: Sacul on January 30, 2016, 07:17:44 PM
Damn, you have summed it up very well.  :hefdaddy

Just a few details:

-Ambient music is something that bores me on its more minimalistic side, stuff like Hammock or Ulver's Shadows of the Sun are basically ambient, but as you point out, they aren't 'conventional', and that's one of the reasons I love them. And I recall listening to A Kind of Blue, and liked it, but also felt it was one of those albums I'd appreciate more as background music rather than trying to actively listen to it.

-Production: well, I guess its actually more a matter of songwriting, because, while ITCOTKC doesn't sound great (Wilson's remix is superb tho), it has excellent tunes, and sounds very different from other 60s music I have checked. I've also realised that what I dislike about 80s music is not the production, but the songwriting in general, which I find very weak. One exception is Operation: Mindcrime, as that album sounds 80s as fuck, but has excellent musicianship and, honestly, it'd suck with modern production.

-Lyrics: I guess some songs can't really be appreciated without taking the lyrics into account, and songs like Wilson's The Raven or Routine wouldn't touch me so hard if they had a different lyrical content.

-I guess I'm just a very modern person, for when I listen to older music by, say, The Rolling Stones, I cannot relate to it. The sound, the melodies, even their style, doesn't resonate with me. You know why I love The Dark Side of the Moon? Well, one of many reasons is that it doesn't feel like a product of its time, but rather the product of Pink Floyd's heart.

-Dunno if I have said it on the 5-essay, but I'm a sucker for uniqueness, for albums that sound like no other out there, in which I can identity the musician's style.

-My first experience with music was through piano lessons. I barely listened to music (this was before discovering prog and DT :P ), so I learned some classical songs, and lots of videogames tunes. So I guess my preference for melodic music comes that way, as none of the songs I played was meant to be sung. On a side note: my fav piece I learned was Moonlight Sonata, the first movement. I have forgotten how to play half of it, but I used to play it complete. And every time, it moved me, deeply, almost to the point of tearing up. It's a powerful song that is often played too quiet imo.

-I also appreciate when a group can do "standard" music very well, like Alter Bridge, or that ska song you sent me, because despite having heard lots of lame ska on the radio or TV, that track has an excellent songwriting.

So tl;dr: I like modern music by a nice margin, dislike generic stuff, and prefer something with lots of feels or unconventional. Or both. :P

Well he did say somewhere that sometimes when he sees a cool album cover he just puts it on his list to check out  :lol still makes little to no sense, but that's apparently the Sacul-thoughtprocess.
I believe albums with awful covers either reflect bad taste, or the artist not caring about that. So how can I know if it cared aboutthe music? IIt's part of the whole experience imo. Not that a nice cover would improve my perception of the music, but it triggers me how some don't even care about it.

Yeah nah, still makes zero sense.... judging a book by its cover and that.  Not to mention that the album cover for Stankonia is iconic.  Two hip-hop juggernauts standing side by side sans-props, in front of a black american flag with pentagrams on it instead of stars and no logo on it whatsoever? forget about it.

I really like the production of this song, and her voice is goddamn sexy.

Damn, what a fantastic singer.

I've gotta say, this chorus is fantastic. The energy and emotion of the vocals… yes.

I wanna marry her voice.

Great guitar sound, but the song doesn't do much for me, really.

This is pretty nice and well written, yup I dig this, specially [female singer]'s vocals.

A pretty interesting song, quite heavy, but well written at the same time.

Although it goes many places, I found all of them uninteresting.

So I was worried about this song. But it actually has some great melodies, and a very melancholic vibe that I dig.

Pretty fun.

Well this is a pretty interesting piece that mixes many styles very well.

So this is how whalecore sounds. Nice.

Oh shit this is epic as fuck.

This is one of the best songs I've listened to in a long, long time.

But from there it just gets better and better. Specially the heavier parts, when the singer reaches the climax, leading to a nice guitar solo.

While I don't realistically see the song I sent being a 4.5, assuming that
Although it goes many places, I found all of them uninteresting.
this is the 2.5, that doesn't sound like what I sent.

So I would hope I'm somewhere in the middle.

Also, one of the best songs you've heard in a long time is a 4.5? What's a 5 then, Antony Fantano?

What Parama said - in a out of ten scale, it'd be 9.5. And I prefer to reserve the perfect score for songs that either blow me away completely, or just to my all-time favorite songs.

A 5 is any of the following, Fluffythony Lothariano:

Porcupine Tree - Trains
Anathema - Untouchable & The Lost Child
Devin Townsend - any song on Addicted
Susanne Sundfør - White Foxes (it has grown a fucking lot since my first roulette)
Ulver - EOS
Portishead - Glory Box
Kashiwa Daisuke - Stella and april #19
Brand New - Limousine
David Maxim Micic - Where is Now?

No Love Song? Geez.

Ever since my roulette I've been starting to wonder which of my songs would be a 10 in my book, and after looking into it, I probably would only have given a single 10/10, instead of the 4 I gave (excluding the 3 in the final round). Arc of Space, legendary song. Also less 9.5/9.0's, but it's easier to say that after the fact. Maybe it would've been easier with scores out of 5.

Yeah, but I didn't realise that about White Foxes until a month or so ago - I believe time is a very important factor when it comes to music, for I've found that my fav records are those that I can come back to after a year or more, and they still feel fresh, and I still love them. Maybe some of this roulette's songs become among my favorites as well.

Now that'd be interesting, making a top 50 with songs instead of albums :P

And Love Song is a +4.5, ToN ;)

Casualties of Cool - Moon
Coheed and Cambria - The Light and the Glass
Devin Townsend - Funeral & The Death of Music
Dream Theater - everything I put in my top 5 DT songs way back when
Mew - Comforting Sounds
Oceansize - Long Forgotten & The Frame
Pain of Salvation - Idioglossia & Undertow
Porcupine Tree - Trains
This Will Destroy You - Villa Del Refugio

Yeah, I think I'm a bit more lenient about what I would consider 10/10, though within that ranking, I guess there would be two tiers. Songs that I can't fault, and songs that I can't fault that hold greater meaning for me.

A Top 50 of songs would be fun. I did keep a fav songs list years ago, dunno if I still have it.

This round has the highest high of the roulette so far, but also the lowest scores, heh. Have fun.


(mikemangioy) Gojira - L'Enfant Sauvage
 Well this is heavy as fuck. So this is how whalecore sounds. Nice. You know… I feel this is heavy for heaviness' sake, for I find little interesting music here, only BLAST BEATS, BLAST BEATS, HARSH VOCALS, HEAVY RIFFING, MORE BLAST BEATS. WHAAAAAALEEEE. Meh. 2.5/5


(sneakyblueberry) Kayo Dot - Zlida Caosgi
I added Hubardo to the list because a friend of mine showed me a song that I can't recall its name now, but was pretty atmospheric and chill. So when I told him (he's a huge Toby Driver fan) that somebody sent me this track from this album, he was like "dude, that's the most chaotic tune on the record". Well he was right, this song is just mindfuck, and pure chaos. Although it goes many places, I found all of them uninteresting. Nothing actually bad on this track, but nothing remarkable, or that connects with me, really - this style ain't my cuppa tea. +2.5/5


(home) Karnivool - We Are
 Great guitar sound, but the song doesn't do much for me, really - it's just ok. Don't know why exactly, but it felt a bit shallow in terms of songwriting, I guess. 3/5


(senecadawg2) Emilie Autumn - I Swallow
 Well this is a pretty interesting piece that mixes many styles very well. My problem is… that it repeats itself too much. Like, there's little flow from the chorus to the rest of the music and vice versa. And the chorus is repeated like 4 times in 6 mins and every time is identical. She has a nice voice, and sings pretty catchy melodies, but I wished there was more focus on the instrumentation, really. Specially on that sweet violin. +3/5


(425) Metallica - One (Live with the SFSO)
Well, I don't really dig the neoclassical vibes at the beginning. I love some neoclassical, but I don't like how its done here. But from there it just gets better and better. Specially the heavier parts, when the singer reaches the climax, leading to just a nice guitar solo - I guess I'm not blown away by solos anymore. With one half of the song that it's ok at best, and other that it pretty good, I can't rate this higher. +3/5


(Evermind) The Gentle Storm - New Horizons
 I've always preferred folky Arjen to metal Arjen, and this song reflects the former style. This is pretty nice and well written, I love the acoustic instrumentation here, and Anneke's vocals. As usual, the production is top-notch. This is a nice little ballad, yet I feel I should like it more. Maybe a little bit cheesy? 4/5


(Train of Naught) Slash feat. Miles Kennedy & The Conspirators - Beneath the Savage Sun
 This is by far the guitar work I've heard of Slash, pretty dark and heavy. Miles' vocals are excellent here, he does a great job. A pretty interesting song, quite heavy, but well written at the same time. And although I don't really pay much attention to solos nowadays, that's a pretty good one. I guess this case is similar to Alter Bridge to me - although Blackbird has 1 or 2 highlights, and most songs on their own aren't fantastic, as a whole it forms a very consistent album. I hope this is also the case here. 4/5


(Tyrias) Thrice - Red Sky
 I normally step way from anything labeled "post-hardcore" and such, for it's a genre I don't really like melodic-wise. So I was worried about this song. But it actually has some great melodies, and a very melancholic vibe that I dig. It's better written than I had expected, and I quite enjoyed it. 4/5


(splent) Snarky Puppy - Something
 I remember some of my friends used to play this band on plug.dj sessions, and I like the joy of these musicians playing together, how they understood each other, and the great time they were having. So I added one of their albums, but you sent me something from other record, interesting :P

Well this is pretty nice, and confirms me that these folks make some tasty music together. But the centrepiece of the record is the great singer, who, as you mentioned, starts doing some insane things later in the songs. I always have had the feeling jazz would be something I could not get into, but I quite like this, and will happily check some of Snarky's albums. 4/5


(Bolsters) Lorde - Glory And Gore
I really like the production and sounds of this song, and her voice is goddamn sexy. Pretty interesting, and catchy song. Don't have much to say about this one, other than I enjoyed both Lorde songs a lot. And the other one a bit more. 4/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Shamrain - To Leave
This is a very interesting piece, and reminds me a lot to Opeth's Damnation for its use of acoustic instrumentation and mellotrons. I've gotta say, this chorus is fantastic. The energy and emotion of the vocals… yes. Quite a sad, yet nice piece. A bit short, and kind of ends abruptly tho. +4/5


(Parama) Lorde - Buzzcut Season
This is a very interesting piece of pop. I love the little piano playing in the background, and the subtle beats - excellent production. Althoough at first it sounded strange I wanna marry her voice. +4/5


(Elite) Anna Von Hausswolff - Discovery
Oh shit this is epic as fuck. The beginning sounds like Inception and then creates some surreal soundscapes that I quite dig, specially using a FUCKING CHURCH PIPE ORGAN YES. Then it goes quiet... Just to build up again. This time with her haunting voice, and some epic backing vocals. Damn, this is epic and feels way shorter than it is. 4.5/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Soundgarden - Superunknown
Damn, what a fantastic singer. Like, he actually is the centrepiece of the song, and oh shit he elevates everything a fucking lot. Like, if this had a different guy or just different melodies, it would have just been ok. Instead, I find a vocalist that not only has a great sense of rhythm but a great melodic mind. Although at first I thought the guitar work was just ok, I've grown to appreciate it a lot, even the little solo. And I thought Nirvana was a representation of grunge, heh - this is better than anything on Nevermind. Excellent track. 4.5/5


(FlyingBIZKIT) Glen Hansard - Bird of Sorrow
Holy. Shit. This is one of the best songs I've listened to in a long, long time. The first half is some pretty nice singer/songwriter stuff. But the climax… holy fucking shit, YES. IIII'M NOT LEAAAAAVIIIIIINNG. And HAAAAAAAANGING OOOONNN, give me fucking chills every fucking time, and almost makes me tear up. Knowing about the story behind the lyrics… it's just crushing. I can definitely see why this song gets high scores in virtually every survivor. Sorry seneca, but the biscuit won you this time. +4.5/5

Mr Fluffy is on a roll, and has just barely surpassed Shadow Ninja (who is doing better than expected!?). Former roulette leader home has been on a downward spiral these last two rounds, and lands in the middle. Could he return to the top 5? With just one dud and a consistent output overall, Elite and Parama have a firm spot right there, but shouldn't relax yet. In the meantime, both Bolsters and the Biscuit are having a tough DEATH MATCH DUEL WITH LIGHTSABERS AND UNICORNS to determine who gets in the big finals. Most of the other players have a chance to scaling up if they play well, except mikemangioy, who still hasn't sent me Adrenaline Mob  :angry:

You know this is is just my opinion, right? So what did you think of this round? Love it? Hate it? Why? What other songs should I score next? Please leave me your response in PMs (within 48 hs). Saculthony Roulettetano, Round 4... forever. Tran-

Nah, you'll absolutely hate the album, this was probably the only song you'd like from it, maybe 1-3 others but that's it, glad you liked it though!

Evermind, how about that 12 minute song? Mine just got blocked, same artist got sent this round.

(Fluffy Lothario) Soundgarden - Superunknown
Damn, what a fantastic singer. Like, he actually is the centrepiece of the song, and oh shit he elevates everything a fucking lot. Like, if this had a different guy or just different melodies, it would have just been ok. Instead, I find a vocalist that not only has a great sense of rhythm but a great melodic mind. Although at first I thought the guitar work was just ok, I've grown to appreciate it a lot, even the little solo. And I thought Nirvana was a representation of grunge, heh - this is better than anything on Nevermind. Excellent track. 4.5/5

There's a lot more variety in grunge than people give it credit for. All of the four major bands have very different styles. Even Nirvana sound totally different on each of their three albums.

But regardless, I'll continue to stick my neck out and say Superunknown is the peak of the genre, and a better mainstream rock album hasn't been released since. If you like Chris Cornell on that track, there's no reason you shouldn't love the album overall, not to mention Badmotorfinger.

And if you aren't aware, Chris Cornell and Rage Against the Machine minus vocalist Zack de la Rocha were a band for a while called Audioslave. They turned sour quickly, but their first album is really good. (Someone could even send a track from it, I have no intentions to).

I think Sacul would have liked Deadman better than We Are, it certainly has better songwriting (But the live version of We Are just gets me somehow :p) Deadmen or perhaps Alpha Omega .

I'd argue yes - it's definitely post progressive rock but the attitude in the vocals and guitar tones are reminiscent of post hardcore-era Coheed. Not on the same level as At The Drive In though.

He exposes "Sleeping Dogs and Dead Lions" as an example of their most post-hardcore side :P

Yeah, but DT aren't a noise band just because they had a few tracks that had NOMAC buzzes on them.

I mean, I'm no expert on this stuff, and I guess people can call the band whatever they want, but I would never have thought to apply the term "post-hardcore" to Oceansize.

Sleeping Dogs and Dead Lions is a total outsider in the Oceansize discography, though  :lol
that's basically their heaviest song
and even then only the first half, the second half is more back to post-rock

I thought of getting it but it was kinda too expensive at the moment. This Friday 12th is a payday though, so I might go for it, especially since I actually wasn't able to get new DT, they said it was out of stock and advised me to come back this weekend.

Anyway, I want the results.

In some German music stores, or the music section of department stores, hip-hop and soul and R&B all get lumped together under the extremely politically correct genre of Black Music.

Jazz still gets its own section.

Post by: Sacul on February 10, 2016, 09:59:01 PM
So I'm awake and already at work even, and it's an hour and a half away from my home. You suck at the deadlines. :lol
Oh come on, I've delivered each round in less than a week, and with 15 players, I think that's pretty cool - a couple of hours won't hurt  :loser:

So I was right - this round was pretty weak overall. While nothing was as low as in the previous round, nothing surpassed the +4 now. So...



(splent) Fleetwood Mac - You Make Loving Fun
Seems like you're pretty fond of this album... sorry :lol . This music is nice, but not my cuppa tea, really. Good thing I didn't pay attention to lyrics too :P 3/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Red Right Hand
I realize the focus of this song is on the textures and the atmosphere, not much on the songwriting. And... I'm not blown away by those sounds nor by Nick's voice. This song is just ok. Nothing remarkable. 3/5


(home) R.E.M. - Nightswimming
This is a nice little ballad. But just that. It feel quite one-dimensional overall, despite the appearance of other lovely instruments here and there. And I don't really like the piano sound, feels like a cheap synth imo - I prefer real pianos by a long shot. Nothing too special here. 3/5


(Train of Naught) Pendulum - Self vs. Self
So this is like Drum & Bass metal or something? It's a pretty interesting combination, this of guitars and heavy electronics - in fact, I've been looking for music like that for quite some time, and besides NIN, my fav album is Antihero by Zardonic (check the song Vigilante and you'll have a blast). Sadly, this song feels pretty generic on its melodies, and one-dimensional on its songwriting. Being honest with you, I prefer the track with Steven Wilson. +3/5


(Tyrias) The National - Fake Empire
This song starts a bit unimpressive, and, honestly, I'm not a fan of this guy's voice. But it slowly grows and grows, getting a bit better each minute. I really like those happy trumpets. And it ends before it could get any better, wtf. +3/5


(senecadawg2) Asia - Wildest Dreams
Seems like these guys were HUGE back in the day, and added them to the list just out of curiosity. Well, I'm not disappointed, but that's because I didn't have any expectations. Better that way, because this track does very little to me. As in most cases, it's not because there are things that I dislike, but rather the lack of remarkable stuff. This is just ok. +3/5


(sneakyblueberry) The Cardigans - Marvel Hill
I've got to admit the beginning of this song is a bit unusual, and weird. Good that female vocals appear soon. The atmosphere of this song is a bit strange, and I don't know if that thing on the left channel is a guitar or a distorted synth. My favorite part is around the third minute, with those nice mellotrons (at least they sound like mellotrons) on the background. While it's a nice tune, it didn't resonate much with me. +3/5


(mikemangioy) CAPAREZZA - ARGENTI VIVE
I'll give you that this song has a pretty creative combination of styles - metal almost djent, electronic music and Italian rap. Yet that alone doesn't save it, because after a few listen the novelty fades away, and I'm with a song that, despite its premise, isn't really original on its melodies, and in that sense, it's kind of generic. Nice track anyways, Mr Spaghetti. +3/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Ryan Adams - Easy Plateau
This sounds like it was written like 40 years ago, but with modern production. It's a pretty relaxing song, and I like the atmosphere. Nothing bad about sounding retro, honestly - sometimes I prefer it that way :lol Overall the instrumentation is pretty good, but I feel the vocal melodies are a bit unmemorable. Overall, a nice song. Nothing bad, but nothing too special imo. 3.5/5


(Bolsters) Meat Loaf - Bat out of Hell
The intro of this, specially the guitars, reminds me heavily of Boston, a band I somehow like quite a bit. Well, their debut at least :lol
Whe I first saw the cover, expected a fucking epic metal tune or something in that vein, until I saw the release date lol. Overall this is a pretty nice, fun song - these guys were having lots of fun while recording it. For some reason I should have like this more tho - maybe it's too long? 3.5/5


(Elite) Thank You Scientist - My Famed Disappearing Act
Parama won't like that you sent this before him :lol A pretty interesting combination of prog metal with trumpets. I quite liked it. Dunno what else to say, honestly. +3.5/5


(425) Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell
Well I certainly see why people think this album is the shit - Dio and Sabbath is definitely a killer combination. And honestly, this track rocks. I kinda wished the guitars were more upfront in the mix, but I know that's more of a modern thing. Still, a pretty badass tune. 4/5


(Evermind) Roger Waters - It's a Miracle (Live)
Good thing that lyrics don't affect my perception of music most of the time, because the lyrics are quite hypocrite here, coming from Roger Water$, but whatever :lol
The instrumentation is really nice and atmospheric, and makes me realize how much he has contributed to the Pink Floyd sound I love. And that may not be Gilmour, but the guitar solo is excellent. My only complain is that it feels a bit too long. 4/5


(FlyingBIZKIT) Kamasi Washington - The Rhythm Changes
My problem with jazz is how meandering it all feels. I know most jazz is basically jamming, but I wished it was more... focused? That it had a clear direction. I normally don't mind songs that go many places (hell, some of my favorites like Where is Now? and most of BTBAM's Colors is like that), but it feels justified to me only if each part is amazing on its own.

So, to this song. As you said, it doesn't feel quite meandering, as you said. It feels like there are some ideas that are played several times throughout the track, and that gives it cohesion and structure. The solos are really nice, and I enjoy the inclusion of female vocals. I'm sure this 3-hour-long album lives up to its name. 4/5


(Parama) Saor - Farewell
Black metal is, along with shoegaze, one of those genres I can't stand on its "purest" form, only when it's combined with other kinds of music. And while this song isn't really blackgaze, it's a pretty interesting tune. I love the atmosphere here, and kinda wished it had better production, so I could listen better to the folk instrumentation. The flute along with the clean vocals is just beautiful. Nice violin breakdown on the middle. Surprising how, despite its length, it doesn't feel like dragging. I enjoyed it more than expected. +4/5

Despite his first dud, Fluffy still keeps the lead, but should keep an eye on Elite, who is pretty close and with a few good rounds, could steal that precious spot. In the meantime, with 3 ties there are, eh, 8 players in the top 5, so any of them can reach finals! To the rest of you... good luck :lol

Some of you have already completed the obligatory 5 list songs, and are now free to send whatever you want, from the list or not. While it isn't banned, of course. And that reminds me...

PLEASE READ THIS!!!

I've decided to change one of the roulette's rules, and that is that any album with a rating of 3.5/5 on the list or on Sputnik, makes the artist/band BANNED. Before it was a minimum of 3/5, but I realize it makes no sense so I'm putting the standard a bit higher now. This makes some groups like My Bloody Valentine or Boards of Canada eligible for submission, but not from the albums that are rated ;)

and i do agree that i wish that song (and album) had better production, it's a little too weak for me to really get into it but the music is so gorgeous that i enjoy it a lot anyways

now to start sending stuff not on ye olde list

edit: I sent. east of the wall. yeah, i'm getting serious now. 1+/5
edit2: i just looked on the list again and since when is The Apologist on the list. ok. good. you get a 6th song from the list.

Yeah, I wouldn't have picked that personally.

Not to mention Red Right Hand being second to last.

Despite his first dud, Fluffy still keeps the lead
If 3.5/5 is a dud, I can live with it.  :lol

Also,
(Fluffy Lothario) Ryan Adams AND THE CARDINALS - Easy Plateau
When this band formed, Adams wanted to drop his name altogether and for the band to just be The Cardinals. His record label wouldn't let him.

Oh, and lastly, like I said earlier in the thread,
After those first 5 rounds, the deluge.

You're obviously wrong about Matt Berningers voice because it's amazing, but I'm glad to have the list restriction behind me. I probably would have sent something from another album by The National if it weren't for your list.

Now, let's get crazy. At this point I don't even care anymore if I'll win or not, I'll just send something I love and hope you love it as well.

For this one, I'll send you a pretty epic song that's kind of classical music, if you added electronic elements, a huge choir, some voice samples and a guitar. Try not to listen to what the guy is saying if you think esoteric stuff is bullshit, and focus on the music (or just accept the cheesy narration for being kind of fitting with the song :P). Despite me not being esoteric at all, this is my favourite song I discovered last year.

Also, the song is slightly longer than 10 minutes (10:07 to be exact), hope that's not a problem :P.

I think I'm going to send some unknown and obscure songs in the next few rounds now that I don't have to follow the list. There's only one artist I sent before in the roulettes, and it was only in one roulette and from a different album too.

Sent some piano driven ambient with electronics for R6.

Also I was in that record store today and checked out the price for A Sort of Homecoming and it was around $40. Beautiful work of art or not, I'm not spending that much on Anathema. :P

A few notes as a bystander:

The Epic is a really special album and was my favorite album of 2015 by quite the margin. If you're not that into Jazz, don't let the 3 hour run time fool you, because I'd say it's a pretty good introduction to Jazz, since you get many of the different styles of Jazz covered on one album. Whereas if you check out someone like Miles Davis (who is also amazing), you might need to dip your toes in more albums to get the full flavor.

Self vs Self is a decent Pendulum tune but not one of their best. I wouldn't say The Fountain with SW is one of their best either, but they're a really great band that you can have a lot of fun with, and I'd put Hold Your Colour in my top50 albums without hesitating. Immersion was really great too.

Nightswimming is a nice little REM tune, but they have done better IMO. What's weird is that I don't really love any of their albums (they're a bit hit or miss), but some of their hits are so good that it compensates for the weaker ones, in other words a greatest hits/best of might be enough. The Great Beyond is IMO their best, but if we're talking ballads, then Daysleeper is IMO superior to Nightswimming.

The National is an amazing band. Took me a while to get into the vocals, mainly because most indie bands have a singer with a more feminine voice, whereas The National goes for that barritone, and not only does it make them unique, but it does grow on you. I'd say if we're talking just indie rock, there's probably not a better band right now, because their last 4 albums have all been amazing. Might take some time, but definitely give them some more chances. Boxer is usually considered the fan favorite album, but personally I hold High Violet the highest. England, Conversation 16 and Bloodbuzz Ohio are 3 of their best songs IMO.

/just some notes in case you decide on checking out more :)

Complete agreed on the The National comment, i think high violet would be more up your alley, Sacul. It was the album that got me into the National. For me his voice didn't need any getting used to it at all, but I love deep voices in general.

Why didn’t I send something from High Violet then? Well, I needed another list song and that was my best option. Shame on you for not having their best album on your list  :P

You make some great points. I agree that Self vs. Self isn't their best (though it's one of my favorites for sure), add to that The Fountain probably is one of my least favorites on the album. I'm just always kinda hesitant when sending an artist I've sent before, I don't want to send the same song over and over, and I guess SvS is a better fit for someone like me who is really into the metal side of Pendulum.

I was deciding between this song, Watercolour, Witchcraft and Crush. Witchcraft I've been sending in a couple of other roulettes (some a succes, some a huge failure), but I decided against sending it yet another time. I'm pretty positive Sacul would enjoy these songs more now.

As for Hold Your Colour, let's agree to disagree  :D Tarantula is my party anthem, but that aside, I don't really find the album all that interesting.

I was deciding between this song, Watercolour, Witchcraft and Crush. Witchcraft I've been sending in a couple of other roulettes (some a succes, some a huge failure), but I decided against sending it yet another time. I'm pretty positive Sacul would enjoy these songs more now.

Hahaha I remember how you sent Witchcraft in Chad's roulette qualifiers with disastrous results. :rollin

Probably 1 because he used the ranking system instead of rating.

But anyway, I guess he was trying to be nice. I always do that when I'm about to eliminate someone.

Speaking of that, your song in my roulette was quite nice. :neverusethis:

As for Hold Your Colour, let's agree to disagree  :D Tarantula is my party anthem, but that aside, I don't really find the album all that interesting.

Funny enough Tarantula is probably my least favorite on the album by far. :P title-track, Still Grey, Another Planet, Girl in the Fire & Plasticworld is where it's at IMO. :P

Overall I think their discography is really great though. Apart from HYC being my favorite, it really is a toss up between Immersion and In Silico after that. They're both great in different ways.

I really like Girl in the Fire too. But In Silico has more standouts for me, I actually thought of The Tempest/Propane Nightmares/Showdown but because of this system where we have to send 5 songs from his list I decided to go with Immersion.

Sorry for the spam Sacul, it's not often that I can talk about Pendulum on a prog-forum.

Props to 425 for actually sending Heaven and Hell. I considered that song for almost every round and each time thought "nah, Sacul won't like it". I know nothing.
Yeah, I wouldn't have picked that personally.

Hey, I didn't expect it to do well either! I just needed one more list entry and don't have many more albums that are on the list, so I decided to give it a shot. Just happy it worked out... this is like the one DTF roulette where something like Heaven and Hell is more of a three-pointer than a slam dunk :lol

And now suddenly there's a world of options open to me... I'm no longer limited by the list...

And I have no idea what to send! :lol

My most :metal track got a 3+ and my most  :chill track got a 3, so it's gotta be a balance or something. I think Sacul has a scoring schedule where it says "if too :metal, deduct points"

The Epic is a really special album and was my favorite album of 2015 by quite the margin. If you're not that into Jazz, don't let the 3 hour run time fool you, because I'd say it's a pretty good introduction to Jazz, since you get many of the different styles of Jazz covered on one album. Whereas if you check out someone like Miles Davis (who is also amazing), you might need to dip your toes in more albums to get the full flavor.
Good to know! A friend of mine is in total love with the album, so it will make him happy when I check it  :smiley:

The National is an amazing band. Took me a while to get into the vocals, mainly because most indie bands have a singer with a more feminine voice, whereas The National goes for that barritone, and not only does it make them unique, but it does grow on you. I'd say if we're talking just indie rock, there's probably not a better band right now, because their last 4 albums have all been amazing. Might take some time, but definitely give them some more chances. Boxer is usually considered the fan favorite album, but personally I hold High Violet the highest. England, Conversation 16 and Bloodbuzz Ohio are 3 of their best songs IMO.
Boxer is on the list, so despite Fake Empire not having scored well, I'm gonna end up checking the album anyways :tup

I think Sacul has a scoring schedule where it says "if too :metal , deduct points"
I love :metal , but really bores me when it gets generic in any shape  :P

I've checked out The National about three or four times now, and every time I do, I remember nothing six months later. They never even leave enough impression on me that I can remember what they sounded like for me to be able to tell you how much I liked them or didn't like them. Which kind of speaks for itself, IMO.

And the band name has to have something to do with it too. It's possibly the worst band name ever. I can't think of another band name that's so empty of personality and void of resonance.

So two things:

1) sneaky hasn't sent yet, nor he has logged in for like two days, hope everything's fine.

2) What if I told you… there's a SECRET PLAYER?!?! He's a friend of mine who wanted to participate on the roulette but was too lazy to create an account here and has been sending me tracks every round via FB. Good news is he isn't aware of the list rule, and has sent me lots of obscure stuff I doubt you've heard of :P Will update the standings so you know how well he's doing, but since he isn't "officially" playing, even if he ends up on the top 5, he won't be eligible for the final EP round so nobody gets cockblocked in any way.

I've never really felt compelled to give hip-hop more than a passing glance, but A Tribe Called Quest are one of the groups I put on if I want to see how well the genre is registering with me at the moment. Still lukewarm, at this point.

Of all the rap artists I've encountered though, their stuff is among the "safest" and least provocative and controversial, if that means anything. That's actually why I tend to turn to them though, I feel more pull from "quieter", more pop-oriented rap than gangster stuff.

Scenario is amazing though.

Have you checked out their other albums? I mean I have to be in the mood for them. It's very chill, relaxing, alt hip hop, but it's also relatively dated by today's standards. Unless you know the context of what they were doing you won't fully appreciate it.

Check out Ms. Jackson by OutKast. And I can say that because I believe they are banned now.

Don't like Death Grips, haven't heard clipping.

I'd say if I do get into the genre properly at some point, it'll be through earlier, less full-on stuff like Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and Run DMC, or the jazz-inflected stuff like Madlib, Sound Providers, Gang Starr, etc.

Post by: Sacul on February 16, 2016, 09:17:34 PM
After a disappointing round, now we're back with a more regular one  :P



(Parama) East of the Wall - The Apologist
Well I can see why you love this track and band. It's pretty atmospheric stuff, like a combination of post-rock and sludge metal I guess. Great production too, I'm glad I can hear the bass most of the time. But I don't love it, nor hate it. My main problem is the vocalist, how he sings really aggressive on moments that are rather calm, and imo it doesn't really fit the mood. I don't mind harsh vocals (except maybe shrieks), but I kinda wished he used his clean voice not only in the background as harmonies. And the second thing that doesn't convince me here are the instrumental sections. The drums are doing a great job, but the guitars are just playing some generic post-rock stuff. Nothing remarkable, sorry. 3/5


(Tyrias) Azedia - Requiem for the New World
In general this song has some great, great instrumentation (specially the strings), and nicely placed electronic elements. It's pretty epic overall, even if it drags a bit. But the main element of the song is the narration, and unlike lyrics, I can't ignore it because it has no melodic qualities, just words. And the completely turn me off. Look, if it was onely some cheesy spiritual stuff, ok, whatever. But then it starts talking about pseudoscience crap and I can't stand it, really - I have a strong dislike towards anything related with "cosmic energy" and such, because it's pure bullshit imo. Maybe I should have mentioned I'm an engineering student and as a pragmatic, critical person, stuff like this lacks any sense to me.

Anyways, back to the song. Had the "narration" not been a big part of the song, this would have definitely scored way higher. Sorry, bro, but I can't give it more than this score. 3/5


(Biskit) Pearl Jam - Black
Eh... this is ok. The instrumentation is nothing special, except maybe the guitar at times. The singer is ok, and from time to time he delivers some nice melodies. Overall, I think I should like this one more, but it just lacks personality, and that turns me off. I struggle a bit remembering how it sounded like after it finishes. 3/5


(Train of Naught) System of a Down - Aerials
Some pretty cool riffs here, yup. My problem here is Serj Tankian - while there's nothing wrong with his voice, and has some interesting vocal melodies, I feel he basically adds nothing to the track. And the song, as a whole, really goes nowhere imo. +3/5


(mikemangioy) Periphery - 22 Faces
For some reason I never listened to Periphery, seemingly one of the biggest djent acts. So I was curious about their music. And... it's ok. While the instrumentation is
pretty good (great riffs), even if not that original, the vocals are quite generic. I'm not really interested in br00tal music unless it has something unique or different to offer. Not bad, but, honestly, I think I prefer anything by David Maxim Micic or Destiny Potato. Not remarkable. +3/5


(425) TUOMAS HOLOPAINEN - A Lifetime of Adventure
This is pretty nice, and even a bit cheesy. In a sense it reminds me of Disney movies :lol . Overall it's a good song, and with quite an epic vibe. The biggest dud here is the guitar solo - the fuck with that tone? Too low, and makes a nice solo really unmemorable imo. +3/5


(sneakyblueberry) vulfpeck - back pocket
Chill yet groovy, nice. Maybe with a few more listens it will grow more on me, since I only gave it like 3-4 spins. Don't have much to say, here, I feel I don't have a strong opinion formed on it so for now I'll just score it like this. 3.5/5


(splent) Enya - Lazy Days
Dunno if I have said it before, but I have a weak spot for innocent, beautiful music as long as it's not cheesy. This track has gorgeous vocal harmonies and an excellent chorus. But, like half of the song is a chorus - this song lasts less than 4 mins, and the chorus is repeated 3 times, and is extended through the end when it fades away. Had this tune had more development/different sections, it would have certainly scored higher. Maybe it makes more sense int eh album context? 3.5/5


(Evermind) Amethystium - Autumn Interlude
Well this is a pretty interesting electronic track. You know I'm a sucker for beautiful, atmospheric music, and this is pretty much that. While the vocals are gorgeous, the electronic sounds and the piano feel a bit generic, like done with some cheap presets, and that kinda turns me a bit off, for it feels quite amateur-ish. Still, a pretty nice song. +3.5/5


(Senecadawg2) Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone
This reminded me a bit of Neutral Milk Hotel, because of the joyful instrumentation. At first Dylan's voice turned me off, and I've got used to it, but it's still the weakest point of the song for me, apart from the production, but since it was released in 1965, I can't really fault it. Pretty enjoyable track, and I'm looking forwards to getting into this album. 4/5


(Elite) Eisley - Mr. Moon
This is some pretty interesting indie pop I guess? Although it may not sound 100% original, it has some pretty gorgeous moments, and her voice is great. A nice little song I quite liked, but dunno what else to say about it. 4/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Yoko Kanno and the Seatbelts - Bad Dog No Biscuits
This is the kind of, eh, jazz? that I quite like. Reminds me a bit of the Pink Panther theme, but more upbeat. I feel it could easily fit an epic car chase scene or something. And the problem is, while the music here is excellent, I feel there's some context missing. I think I'd love it along with where it's used on Cowboy Bebop. Still, a great track that makes me want to watch the series. 4/5


(Bolsters) The Naked and Famous - We Are Leaving
I've gotta say I love the atmosphere here, a lot - I think it's mainly to the gorgeous synth line on the background. The singer has a nice voice, and there are some interesting vocal harmonies here and there. The drumming and percussion are great. At the middle there's a distorted sound appears and it feels like it will lead to an epic climax or something, but then the song just calms down until it ends, so... huh? :lol The songwriting could be quite better, to be honest. Other than that, it's a song full of wonderful sounds. 4/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Steam Powered Giraffe - Brass Goggles
For some reason I have a weak spot for cabaret-like music, and songs on this vein are definitely my favorite on most kids movies when they appear. This has a very retro appeal, and while it may not be the most creative song songwriting-wise, it's pretty fun and I dig it a lot. +4/5


(home) Queen - Innuendo
I have always enjoyed Queen, but never felt compelled to dive into their albums. But I saw Innuendo was one of their most praised albums, so added it to the list, mostly our of curiosity. I've gotta say, I'm fucking impressed. The melodies and atmosphere at the beginning and through most of the song are haunting. Freddy's voice really add to it. If there's a weak part of this track, is the chorus - oh, it's good, but the rest of the first half of the tune is vastly superior imo. It really surprised me how then a flamenco section appears, and I love it. Then some excellent vocal harmonies. The guitar tone is a bit weird, but it does an excellent work. All in all, I'm surprised. 4.5/5

Standings

With a very consistent output, looks like Fluffy, Elite and our dear Ninja will pretty much stay in the lead, while Bolsters, Parama, the Biscuit and Home could any claim a place in the top 5 as well. Even Evermind and splent could have a chance too, if they play well and the others fuck up a bit. For the rest, I hope you still send me good stuff even if there are small chances for you. With 4 rounds left, things could shake up a bit.

And the magic words are: 48 and public shaming hours.

Well I do like the song of course, I'd never send anything in a roulette that I don't...but I like all the songs on this particular album, and We Are Leaving is one of the lower-ranked tracks for me. I chose it because it's a little more unusual, and I therefore thought it might appeal to you more because of that. But after I sent it I wondered if going with one of my least favourite tracks was a good idea or not, and whether the strategy of trying to send things that appeal to you more was a something I was even capable of. :lol

Well, it's not like I don't understand your criticism, I don’t like the content of the narration myself. It just doesn't distract from the amazing music from me. And I mean, it's not that big of a part of the song. He's talking for one fourth of the song at maximum.

I still think you'd like the band though, that's their only song that has this kind of "pseudoscientific" content. Theoretically, could I send another song by them a bit later in the roulette?
Also, what do you think about the topics of the narration in Anathema's Hindsight or Internal Landscapes? I have a song that has some very brief narration in this vein, but it’s also pretty risky musically, so I'm not sure if I'll even send it (not that I have much to lose at this point :lol)

Honestly though, he's one of my three favourite artists ever, but I can see why some people don't care for him.

I had been considering sending SOAD in one of the later rounds. I had IEAIAIO or Toxicity in mind. Aerials is a classic though.

Song sent.

I wanted to send I-E-A-I-A-I-O first but I needed to work on my list-songs and only Toxicity was on the list.

Toxicity could've been good and I prefer most of it over Aerials, though Aerials has that nice buildup and amazing last chorus, I didn't think Toxicity would hold up to it in a roulette like this, but apparently it might just have.

Sent some lettuce.

I kinda preferred Like A Rolling Stone for the lovely instrumentation, but honestly, I don't see myself giving it a higher score than that in future relistens. And I don't really connect with Aerials - actually, I mentioned to our mistery player about that song, since he's a big fan of SOAD. He didn't think I'd end up liking it much, but because the band might not be my cup of tea. Seems he was right :P


Black is one of the best songs on this earth.

I had ruled out sending Dylan, figured he'd be a quick way to get a 2/5. Boy was I wrong.
I wished I could like Black more than I do. And the only way to get something lower than a 2.5 here would be to send some harsh noise, or a 15-min drone with Shoegaze influences and 80s production :P

Oops, sorry :lol

I think the one on Hindsight is pretty cheesy, but I don't mind it. The narration on Internal Landscapes is intriguing, for what the man describes about his near-death experience I find interesting. So both are spiritual in a non-pseudocientific way, so I don't mind them.

Is this something we're doing now? Sending songs that Sacul probably won't like as protests? Because I did the same thing last round. Naturally, didn't work out as well for me as it did for you, but it could be fun. Time to send some power metal and classic prog.  :P

I guess in theory, if you send songs Sacul doesn't like from his list, you're at least thinning the list. Even if they ain't on the list, if that band's name appears on his radar again in the future, he knows he didn't like it the first time.

But I made a list of songs to potentially send in R1, and unless everyone starts sending the exact same shit I have in mind, it should get me to R10 at least.

There are one or two artists on Sacul's list that I didn't even bother thinking about sending because I figured someone else would snap them up quick and they're still not sent by anyone, that I know of.

Post by: Sacul on February 19, 2016, 11:54:02 PM
I'm gonna copy Evermind and just post the most interesting tidbits :P


I don't really like this track, and I'm feeling you might actually get the lowest score of the roulette.

This is really beautiful, and I fucking love beautiful music.

What the fuck is this? :lol

I really like the atmosphere of this track, pretty chill - I love chill music, and this hits the right spots.

It's not as bad as I expected.

I prefer the parts without harsh vocals by a long shot.

Only one word defines this song: gorgeous. I reeaaaallyy need more music like this in my life.

i've ordered one of the artist's albums between the time when i sent sacul a song and now. i actually didn't have one yet tho because the album i wanted most was "impossible to obtain" so i'd just been spinning it on youtube a lot  :lol

i also figure it's either a love it or hate it thing thus the low score is super likely

Well, my song is what the fuck, it's beautiful, atmospheric, not as bad as I personally expected on first listen, it has parts without harsh vocals (meaning the entire song), and it's gorgeous. I wouldn't be too shocked if you gave it the lowest score in the roulette either, so I'm at a loss trying to guess if any of these is mine, hell, maybe they're all mine.

Yeah, I'll be allowing longer songs, but I have no clue as to which will be the new limit, if 15 or 18 mins.

You didn't. But then again, you probably didn't mention it because it's impossible for two songs to both be the worst of the roulette at the same time.

Post by: Sacul on February 22, 2016, 11:05:48 PM
Another pretty polarizing round - it has some of the best songs of the roulette, but also some of the worst.



(sneakyblueberry) SikTh - How May I Help You?
What the fuck is this? :lol

Eehh... this song is fucked up. I don't really like the vocalist, he ends up annoying me. I've got some friends who love this, but honestly, this ain't my cuppa tea. From time to time they manage to create some good sections but they are pretty short and only here and there, while the rest either bores or annoys me. I don't really like this track, and I'm feeling you might actually get the lowest score of the roulette. Sorry. +2/5


(Biskit) Intronaut - The Unlikely Event of a Water Landing
I like the atmosferic bits of the second half, but overall this is just bland. Lame growls, dissonant guitar work without taste... no. Dat bass tho. But this style really isn't my thing, like at all. And this track just drags, really. Maybe it makes more sense in the album context? Dunno, but I don't feel any compelled to check this band, sorry. 2.5/5


(Parama) Oranssi Pazuzu - Dub Kuolleen Porton Muistolle
The atmosphere here reminds me a bit of Sigh. I prefer the parts without harsh vocals by a long shot, for I'm not a fan of them doing calm moments. So... this track is ok overall. Is it bad my fav part of it is the bass? :lol

But really, despite being quite atmospheric... it doesn't do much for me. And I feel it drags. Meh. +2.5/5


(425) Don Henley - New York Minute
It's not as bad as I expected, because I expected it to fucking suck, and it just underwhelms me. While this track is from the 80s, it doesn't suffer that much of the lame production it was commonplace back in the day, and it confirms my theory that what I dislike most of this decade is the songwriting in general - I just don't connect with most of it at all. +2.5/5


(splent) The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
This sounds nice, but as with most 60s music, I don't really connect with it musically - I mean, I appreciate the creativity of these guys, making this kind of music with those unusual instruments, but just that. I guess I prefer modern pop :lol 3/5


(mikemangioy) Anthrax - Among the Living
I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that I'm not kvlt enough to appreciate this kind of music. Seems like a fairly typical 80s thrash song, and it does nothing to me. I added one of their later albums because I sampled a bit and liked how it sounded closer to nu/funk metal. This is just ok mate. 3/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) The Plot In You - Time Changes Everything
Although this has a bit of a particular style, and I definitely like the atmosphere, feels a bit generic on the vocal melodies tho, and that turns me off. Not a bad track, but far from a brilliant one. +3/5


(Evermind) October Falls - Marras I
This has some nice guitar melodies. Interesting inclusion of a flute. Reminds me of Ulver's second album, which is fully acoustic (you'd like it), and this certainly has those dark folk vibes. And... it's ok. One of those cases in which there's nothing wrong with the song, but nothing stands out. I'm not really a fan of "dry" atmospheres, for I prefer layered ones or with lots of reverb and delay. And this is the former. Nice song, but only just that. +3/5


(senecadawg2) A Winged Victory for the Sullen - Steep hills of vicodin tears
This is really beautiful, and I fucking love beautiful music. But I feel it's maybe too minimalist for my taste. The strings sound reminiscing of Stars of the Lid, but I prefer this song to most of them tbh. Good thing is that it's not too long, and reaches a splendid climax. Not the most creative song I've heard, but possibly one of the best on this very vein and style, which isn't saying much I guess. 3.5/5


(Tyrias) Arkasia - Angel
I'm not really into this genre because of how generic and passionless it sounds, but this is nice. Definitely the most passionate brostep I've heard, but that's not saying much :lol

Knowing he dedicated this song to her mother makes much sense, and gives this a sort of emotional punch. I'm not bothered by the narration btw. But what prevents me from enjoying this one more is the use of generic sounds - I'll never understand people who seemingly don't mind sounding like everybody else in their genre. Well, tastes I guess. You know from my championship entries and some of this roulette's top choices that I definitely love music with lots of feels, so that kinda saves this tune from oblivion. 3.5/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Bic Runga - Ruby Nights
I really like the atmosphere of this track, pretty chill - I love chill music, and this hits the right spots. Great voice, and good melodies. Although it's quite a simple piece, I quite like each sound here. Some people would need to be in the mood for this kind of stuff, and you're lucky I'm in that mood most of the time. Yup, I'm adding this album to the list. +4/5


(Bolsters) Mree - On Echo
This is something pretty unusual, and I love unusual stuff. Done right of course. And your entry is a good example of it. As you said, there's some orchestral stuff along with glitch and folk elements, but in a subtle way. I really like the atmosphere of this track and the gorgeous female vocals. Doesn't blow my mind, but it's pretty nice overall. +4/5


(Train of Naught) Lechuga - Entre 2 Mundos
I think this is easily your best song so far, why didn't you send this before? Pretty groovy and interesting track, I love the female vocals here, even if she's not singing lyrics, she more than delivers. Fantastic instrumentation, great riffs. Reminds me a little bit of LTE for the great flow and chemistry between these musicians. Also, dat sax. 4.5/5


(Elite) Euzen - The Stage
I don't know what genre is this or what the hell is going on, but I really like it. Those synths at the beginning are just epic and I love their sound. Simple instrumentation overall, but I really enjoy this. And she has a nice voice AND it's readhead. Yup I love this. 4.5/5


(home) Ludovico Einaudi - Divenire Live at Royal Albert Hall London
Only one word defines this song: gorgeous. I've gotta admit that since falling in love with Daisuke and Nils Frahm (I highly recommend you his album Spaces), I haven't explored much modern classical except Music for 18 Musicians which I find really dull, but Divenire makes me realize I reeaaaallyy need more music like this in my life. Beautiful track with tons of passion - I just can't get enough of good piano-based music.

Btw, I actually expected seneca to end up sending me this song :lol

My only complaint would be that this track is a little bit too long, like 30 secs or so. Other than that, it's fantastic. My favorite of the round, and among the best of the roulette. You're back on fire, mate. 4.5/5



Standings
+28.5 - Fluffy Lothario xxxxx
+28.5 - Elite xxxxx
27.5 - Bolsters xxxx
+27 - Shadow Ninja 2.0 xxxxx
+27 - home xxxxx

+24 - 425 xxxxx
+22 - Sneakyblueberry xxxxx
21.5 - mikemangioy xxxx


While the top 5 on its core is likely to keep being Fluffy-Elite-Bolsters, now the 4th and 5th spot aren't assured despite home's triumphant return, for Evermind and ToN could sneak if they send good stuff and Parama keeps fucking up. Sadly, the Biskit dropped quite low, and along with the rest, he doesn't have many chances to reach the finals now unless some miracles happen.

I think Arkasia actually sounds pretty different from other dubstep artists I've heard, which us why I like him. :lol Opinions, I guess.

A smalm story for my next submission: I once saw this band live in a 500-capacity venue, and there were not even a hundred people there (probably closer to 50). It felt really weird at first, but combined with their music it made for one of the creepiest and most memorable concert experiences I've ever had.
I really like this song I'm sending, but given my previous track record, I'll probably get a 3 or so.

(home) Ludovico Einaudi - Divenire Live at Royal Albert Hall London
Only one word defines this song: gorgeous. I've gotta admit that since falling in love with Daisuke and Nils Frahm (I highly recommend you his album Spaces), I haven't explored much modern classical except Music for 18 Musicians which I find really dull, but Divenire makes me realize I reeaaaallyy need more music like this in my life. Beautiful track with tons of passion - I just can't get enough of good piano-based music.

Btw, I actually expected seneca to end up sending me this song :lol

My only complaint would be that this track is a little bit too long, like 30 secs or so. Other than that, it's fantastic. My favorite of the round, and among the best of the roulette. You're back on fire, mate. 4.5/5

Glad you liked it! I should have sent the album version that one is actually a bit shorter (2 minutes I think). I know another componist with a similiar style you might enjoy,  I'll probably sent something from him in the following round. I'll check out Nils Fram!

Sent a song from my favourite post-rock band, I hope it doesn't bore you  :lol

Or he's currently moving to Russia.

Results tonight - I haven't added scores yet but looks like the top 5 will be shaken up a little, for both someone sent a dud that may cost him a place in the finals, and someone sent one of the round's best tracks and may sneak into the top 5. So yeah, get hyped.

Another good round! Sorry for the typos - haven't spellchecked everything, but I hope it's understandable. And yes, Fluffy, those tidbits have been included here and there - try to find them ;)


(Tyrias) The Legendary Pink Dots - Russian Roulette
Just... no. Sorry, but I don't really dig this track - the vocalist is lame and it's highly repetitive without any noticeable evolution. The atmosphere is pretty gud tho. But... that's it. 2.5/5


(splent) M83 - Midnight City
BEST SONG EVARRRR...

Nah just kidding. I can't really stand that main sound - it's like a distorted sample of a yelling monkey, and it really annoys me when it appears. And the sounds in general aren't really original imo. The only thing that saves it from total oblivion is the nice sax solo near the end, but just a bit. If you send me another song this bad, I will cut your face off and throw it in the ocean :) 2.5/5


(425) Voices from the Fuselage - Meteorites
Yup, as you predicted: meh, generic. I'll only give it that it has a nice atmosphere, but that's it. 3/5


(Mikemangioy) Foo Fighters - Rope
This song has am interesting TMV vibe to it, which made it stand out a bit before falling into a generic chorus, and a nice instrumental after the middle. It's ok, but this doesn't really prompt me to check the band further other than giving this album a listen because it's on the list - feels like a poor man's Flying Colors, if that makes any sense lel. 3/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Sleep Party People - Change In Time
This song is okay, I guess. Well... this has a pretty nice atmosphere. But... I kinda don't dig this melodic-wise, nor the sounds used, really. don't have much to say other that while it's enjoyable, it's nothing too special for me. 3/5


(home) God Is an Astronaut - Fire Flies And Empty Skies
U I wish I could say that this one has been a big grower, but sadly it isn't. From the go it underwhelmed, and with repeated listen it has only gotten a bit better. Now I remember why I never came back to this album - it just lacks memorable melodies. Not bad, but doesn't stand out among all the generic post-rock bands out there imo. The rocker bit near the end was nice tho. +3/5


(sneakyblueberry) Kaki King - Can Anyone Who Has Heard This Music Really Be a Bad Person?
I recall this angry bitch (no seriously, she looks mad on every pic I see of her) from an excellent TED show in which she did some pretty unusual stuff with her guitar, and even added a couple of her albums to the list. While the song she played, Pink Noise, was pure wank, this is completely different. A pretty nice tune that, sadly, works better as background music imo. Still quite enjoyable. 3.5/5


(senecadawg2) Sylvan - Not Far from the Sky
Well this is a pretty epic into to what I guess must be an epic prog metal album. Short writeup this time: I quite dig this one for it's cinematic sound. It ends too abrupt, like what seems the intro to the next track? Anyways, great entry. 4/5


(Evermind) Amadeus Awad - Noir
Well this is a pretty unusual track. It's kind of dark and folky but with subtle electronics? I have no clue what this is, but I dig it. Dunno if it's noir tho. 4/5


(Parama) Gorillaz - El Mañana
I remember quite liking the previous song, Feel Good Inc, and jammed this album several times, but never with much attention so I kinda forgot about it until a few days ago. And this track makes me want to revisit it soon. RYM lists it as trip-hop? I can only hear that on the background guitars a la Portishead, and the drumming, but that's all. So, a pretty good, enjoyable track. Feels a bit busy at times, and the production could be better tho. 4/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Rob Dougan - One and the Same (instrumental)
Good song. This album was already on my sight some weeks ago, and was considering adding it to the list, then you send up sending something from it! You were almost right about the use of strings on trip-hop: it's excellent here. But I believe Portishead's Roads is perfect in that sense, because it's not just something on the background - the other day, relistening to Dummy and that particular track, I couldn't stop thinking: "This song is a masterpiece." Out of curiosity I checked the original version of your entry, and his vocals aren't the nicest I've heard honestly, so good choice here. +4/5


(Train of Naught) Arctic Monkeys - From the Ritz to the Rubble
Yup, another album I recall quite digging one song, but being a bit underwhelmed with the record as a whole. So yeah, added it to the list to revisit it. And It's quite worth it, actually. Pretty groovy and badass track, yeah I dig this. +4/5


(Elite) Theodor Bastard - Umbraya Erze
I have no clue what kind of music this is, for it reminds me of Dead Can Dance, but with very different influences yet a similar approach. I dunno why, but I have a bit of a crush with this kind of music for whatever reason. Had this been a bit better written it would have been a greater hit, but I quite dig it and will surely add this album to my list. +4/5


(Bolsters) Afro Celt Sound System - Deep Channel
One of my favorites of the round. A nice, interesting electronic beginning, that slowly introduces the world instrumentation. The it just gets awesome. I love how pure joyful it sounds - these musicians were having tons of fun. I love the inclusion of Celt/Irish parts. Overall, an excellent song that appeals to my taste for unconventional stuff. 4.5/5


(Biskit) Trioscapes - Blast Off
This track is just tons of fun, and while each member is crazy, the saxophonist is insane - the thing he does at 1:45 is more astonishing than DT's last album. I'm sure one of the bandmembers must have asked him: "Are you on crack?" or something similar. This vibe reminds a without-steroids LTE, and they both seemingly are pretty much Jazz Fusion, which I think might be my gateway into jazz. As with LTE, I could just focus on what one of these musicians are doing, and be amazed by the variety of their playing. How do you do to send one of your best tracks after your worst song? 4.5/5

Elite and Fluffy are still tied for first place! I've gotta say, they both have been very consistent, and along with Bolsters, deserve their spot in the top 5. But there are 6 people with legit chances of getting into the finals, and all they need is someone to screw up - there's less than a full point between home and the bizkit, and with two rounds left, who know what might happen!

I'll update the banned list and stuff this Thursday after exams - but you still have 48 hours to send. Good luck!.. some will need it.

I really need to have more confidence after I send things.

By the way, the link I sent you is a compilation, which I did because the compilation is remastered and significantly more dynamic. But the actual album that song is from is called Seed, if you'd rather check that out.

I'll send my next song :soon:

I was going to send some dj0nt but I changed my mind at the last minute. Sent some R&B synthpop sort of stuff instead.

Also, do you have any plans to add more albums to the list before round 10, or are you done?

Post by: Sacul on March 01, 2016, 07:59:38 AM
I have a short list of albums I could add, but I'm afraid half of the records are either obscure or not in the genres you normally listen to, so I'd recommend you giving the list a deep look - you may find a few classics that haven't been sent yet :P

You know, I don't exactly mean to criticize your way of running this, and I get that you have 15 participants too, and it's been eight rounds... but getting only a few short sentences along the lines "hey, it's dark and folky and I dig it. 4/5" is about as non-satisfying as it gets. :lol

I'm rather glad with my score, but I don't really make the Finals because I won't win there anyway, so this time it's definitely going to be a metal track.

Sent. Read the PM to let me know if I should send another song or not.

Also, I decided I'll save you some time. Just copy and paste this in your next results post:

Well, just as I thought, this is just outright cheesy. A whiny vocalist and electric guitars? This is so generic. Besides, who even writes this kind of lyrics? Really meh overall. 2.5/5

So all entries are in, nice! Except results this Sunday, or Monday at most. I will start relistening previous rounds as well, so although this round may take a little longer, I think it'll be worth for those with lower scores, and I hope some ties will be broken before Finals.

I'm still keeping it to 10 for.my next roulette, that's the sweet spot for me. Thinking 8 rounds, eliminate half, epic round, eliminate two more, ep.round with the top 3. we'll see tho this won't be for like another year  :lol

I could probably scale that up to 12 people if I wanted tho

Like, there's one or two standouts, but overall it feels like a weak round. It's just a first impression, and I wouldn't trust it much, but I really hope some of these songs grow on me because otherwise this would be the worst round so far. And the top 5 might get shaken up a bit  :corn

By the way, I also started doing relistens, and some of you will be pretty happy  :smiley:

I'd say my song for this round needs at least five listens to appreciate it. Until you know and memorize and accept the vocal melodies, it might seem very underwhelming, but when you do, it becomes really brilliant.

Of course, this is a Sacul's roulette, so I'm probably getting 2/5 anyway.

If you're feeling like it, regardless of what you think of Schizanimus, do make an effort and check out Death is Just a Feeling by Amadeus Awad. I think you like dark music and this album should be right up your alley. He's got Anneke singing on half of the songs too.

I'm probably wrong, but what the hell.

I agree with you, but I do think it's one of the weaker Grace tracks.  The guitar chord voicings on it are amazing tho, you can hear how Radiohead ripped the shit out of that guitar style, in Paranoid Android.

I've become more focused on the relistenings rather than on this round because of how underwhelming it is overall  :lol

The first part of relisten results will be posted tomorrow Monday, round 9 results this Tuesday evening.

I aswered that to ToN, and yes, it will be. How much? I'm torn between 15 or 18 mins. Will let you know when R9 results are posted.

No.

Btw, since the top 3 (Fluffy, Elite, Bolsters) are pretty unlikely to drop from their position, I recommend you to start planning your EPs - basic guidelines are: overall limit of 30-35 minutes (more on this later), no more than 15 mins per artist. Flow will get into consideration. Good luck  :tup

Since all rounds are open, I assume there's no harm in sending a normal length song for round 10?

I forgot about the potential of that epic last round.

There's an album on the list that I had ruled out sending something from because every track is like 15 mins. Guess I might be able to send it after all.

If I have no chance of reaching the Finals, I'm probably going to send a 19-minutes-long song. I mean, I know it will be over the length limit but I had to endure Sacul's awful tastes during the whole roulette, so he should be able to deal with it. :lol

That was actually my plan in your roulette if I have no more chance to promote to the next round, I have a very nice 19 minute-ish track that you might like  :metal

Don't forget the last round before the elimination is going to be female fronted. I won't accept anything not female fronted for that round.

Still, if it's male fronted, you can submit it for Round 5 though, points reduction and all.

Yea I'm well informed, the plan would only persue if I completely failed the first 4 rounds, but I doubt I will be completely irrellevant to the competition at that point now.

I really suck at female fronted, in past roulettes I got away with it pretty nicely with some electronic stuff, but that doesn't cut it this time around  :lol luckily I already have my string/woodwinds/brass song ready, so I have plenty of time to think it through.

Title: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! - RELISTENING PT 1 RESULTS!!!!
Post by: Sacul on March 07, 2016, 07:35:07 PM
So yeah, relisten results of the first five rounds. Most of these are pretty short because I don't have much to say besides what I've already stated in their former writeup - all of these just grew on me a bit.


Round 1

(Evermind) Pain of Salvation - Iter Impius
Yeah, I think I can get into this band through this album if it's half as good as this track.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Celldweller - Gift for you
Yeah, this track has a fantastic atmosphere and production.
Previous score: +4
New score: 4.5


(425) Coldplay - Midnight
Took me some time to get used to the song's minimalism, but it has a pretty great atmosphere.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4


(sneakyblueberry) Horse the Band - Cloudwalker
Ok, maybe because I've been listening to Converge this made a bit more of sense now?
Previous score: 3
New score: +3


Round 2

(Train of Naught) Koan Sound - Sly Fox
For some reason I'm digging this more now than before. It's still pretty repetitive, but the groove makes up for it.
Previous score: +3.5
New score: 4


(FlyingBISKIT) The Dear Hunter - At the End of the Earth
Yeah, this is pretty great. The atmosphere is excellent and the outro quite good.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4


(425) Bon Iver - Skinny Love
Maybe because I'm a bit sensible as of late this made click. It's a pretty emotional piece that I wonder why I didn't see that before - although it may sound like a happy song, it's definitely not a joyful one with that out of tune guitar and the desperate chorus. Sounds like a depressed person's attempt to lift itself up. I can picture this guy there on the cold basement playing it. Damn.
Previous score: +3
New score: +3.5


(Parama) The Angelic Process - Dying in A-Minor
I have no clue why I added this album to the list months ago, but I'm so glad I did. I've already listened to this record like 5 times, and it's amazing. This particular song is a nice breath of fresh air (well, kinda) in such a cathartic, crushing album. Those feels, and the atmosphere, damn. Oh, and I think the title track might be even better than Dying in A-Minor, but both are amazing.
Previous score: 4.5
New score: +4.5


(splent) Yellow Magic Orchestra - Behind the Mask
This is a bit better than I recalled it to be.
Previous score: +3
New scores: 3.5


Round 3

(splent) OutKast - B.O.B.
This song is pretty badass and varied. I should have payed it a bit more of attention back then.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) múm - We Have A Map Of The Piano
This is just wonderful. Those, eh... dunno what instruments are those that appear on the second half, but now I really liked them.
Previous score: +4
New score: 4.5


(sneakyblueberry) Frank Ocean - Pyramids
Yeah this song is better than any lame alt R&B like Drake or whatever.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4


Round 4

(sneakyblueberry) Kayo Dot - Zlida Caosgi
Well, I like the most, eh... epic moments here? It still feels like it goes nowhere tho.
Previous score: +2.5
New score: 3


(Bolsters) Lorde - Glory And Gore
Somehow, I like this one a bit more on this relisten. The chorus is excellent.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4

(Evermind) The Gentle Storm - New Horizons
Myabe if it had a little bit less cheese, I'd have loved it, but it's still excellent.
Previous score: 4
New score: +4


Sadly no round 5 songs were worthy of bonus point on relistens - yeah it still sucks. Updated standings!

Iter Impius is by far the best track indeed, but there's many other excellent songs on the album. I can see why one wouldn't like the album though and it's not my favourite Pain of Salvation record either, but to write off the album as a whole.. Yes, it's does have its shitty moments (especially in the endlessly dragging snoozefest of Dea Pecuniae), but the good moments are so good. The live version of the album is actually even better than the studio version (if you pay no attention to the weird video choreography). I'll have to relisten it myself, it's been a long time.

Well, I know I sent you Iter Impius, but you probably should've tried Remedy Lane or TPE pt. 1 first.

Yes, it's does have its shitty moments (especially in the endlessly dragging snoozefest of Dea Pecuniae)

Yeah, that one is pretty bad. This song is probably the main reason I don't love this album.

Post by: Sacul on March 08, 2016, 09:50:54 PM
You know, I decided to have 15 players to up the chances of finding good stuff, and to have somehow consistent rounds with just a few duds - seems like that proportion has gone the other way around this time. Honoestly, at this point of the game, I didn't expect this. But, in the end, my tastes make little sense to you although they're pretty clear to me, so it's not much of your fault :P


(mikemangioy) Mestís - Gentle Giant
Eh... no. Kind of generic whale-core :P At least the bass sounds gud. 2.5/5


(Parama) The Hirsch Effekt - Bezoar
I think that even after like 5-6 listens, this track still makes very little sense to me structurally. I wouldn't mind if every part was awesome on its own. Sadly, this isn't really the case - I feel the good parts are sporadic, while there's an abundance of heavy sections that seem done for the sake of heaviness. And for some reason some melodic parts remind of Haken circa Visions. And I like Converge because of the excellent songwriting - those guys don't make heavy, furious songs for the sake of it, but to express and fuel their anger and frustration. Kind of the same with Nine Inch Nails. Although I have to be in the mood to enjoy the mentioned, I feel like an emotional catharsis when I listen to them. Plus they have better songwriting. 2.5/5


(Evermind) Seventh Wonder - Unbreakable
This is like a crossover of power metal, prog, and anime intro (or outro?) music - a fucking cheesefest :lol

Honestly, this sounds generic as fuck, and falls into several of the tropes I dislike about the aforementioned genres - even a guitar solo lol. No, I don't connect with this kind of music at all. Basically that. Oh, and the singer is pretty great. 2.5/5


(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Vulture Industries - The Tower
I can definitely see why you love this thing, but I honestly don't connect with it. Don't have much to say, for that sums up it perfect. +2.5/5


(senecadawg2) Max Richter - She Remembers
Soundtracks are a very tricky thing to me, for I feel I rarely enjoy them out of their context without having listened to them in such context in the first place. I can only imagine this piece belong to a very dark, sad scene of this series. It's a nice little song, but... just that. Nothing makes it stand out nor I connect with it - it feels incomplete without context. At this point I wonder if you're even trying, mate - I know you have better stuff that would suit my tastes :P 3/5


(sneakyblueberry) Jeff Buckley - Vancouver
For a moment I thought you would try to redeem Buckley with another song from Grace :P So... even after several listens I can't recall a single thing from this song besides his great vocal performance. Odd thing, but I guess it's because I didn't really connect with it. 3/5


(Bolsters) - Pilgrim
This is quite a mixed tune, for on one had there's a nice atmosphere and good vocals and melodies - on the other that weird, eh... trumpet melody that keeps appearing for like half of the song. I don't really like it. Other than that, it was nice I guess - maybe I'd have like other songs from the album more, as you said :P 3/5


(425) Bruce Dickinson - Arc of Space
I can be quite picky with my ballads - while I normally prefer female-fronted beautiful stuff (like iamthemorning and Marketa Irglová <3), that doesn't mean I can't enjoy a ballad with male vocals. And... I don't really connect with this track. And the worst is I'm not exactly sure why - the song is there, and I'm here, but there's basically no link between both as it would happen with tunes I liked more. 3/5


(splent) G. F. Handel - Solomon: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
This is one of those things about classical music that make it such a mixed genre for me - lots of compositions sound the same, or very similar, like they could be written by the same guy. While enjoyable, I didn't find anything really outstanding about this piece. If it makes you feel better, here is my absolute favorite classical piece: Beethoven - Sonata 14 "Moonlight" Movement 1. There's a world of difference between listening to a recorded interpretation and playing it, for it's a very moving piece - when I learned it, it could made me tear up. Really an astonishing composition. 3/5


(Elite) Look to Windward - Vad Åskan Sade
What kind of music this even is? :lol

To be honest I feel quite mixed about this song, for it goes many, many places in less than 7 mins, meaning it's quite hard to digest in just a few listens. I don't mind this approach as long as each place is interesting and doesn't appear abruptly. But I'm afraid that this song goes to places I quite like as well as others that just underwhelm me. It indeed has some interesting "textures" going on. But overall it's just all over the place and doesn't feel cohesive at all, like without a clear direction. Maybe it will grow on me on relistens, but I can't score it higher than this now. +3/5


(Fluffy Lothario) Fat Freddy’s Drop - Blackbird
So this is some kind of nice mix of reggae with soul. I dunno what to say about it other than I just liked it. Nothing mindblowing, but quite enjoyable - I dig the good vibes here and the short solos. 3.5/5


(Train of Naught) Apocalyptica - Path
A very interesting combination of strings and metal, and it works quite well. I'm not convinced on the guitar sound production - sounds quite weak and doesn't have the best sound to it. The ocassional synths are a nice touch. Overall, it kind of repeats the same theme and makes it fell like it goes nowhere - and the end is too abrupt. So, very good idea, kinda could-be-better execution. 3.5/5


(Tyrias) Caravan Palace - Suzy
For reasons I can't explain, I have a bit of a soft spot for cabaret and swing music, and electro swing is definitely something I want to dig deeper in the future. Although it may not be the most varied song in the round, it does its job very very well - good thing I have one of their albums in the list. 4/5


(BIZKIT) The Aristocrats - Bad Asteroid
This is the kind of stuff that reminds me of LTE - pretty groovy instrumental music that's closer to Jazz Fusion, and shows the great chemistry between the musicians. Overall, although Guthrie kind of dominates the piece, the other guys made some tasty work. Pretty interesting. 4/5


(home) London Grammar - Hey Now
So earlier today I did one listen of this round, and throughout the day I had this song stuck in my head - and that's normally a good sign. At first her voice felt a bit weird since it's a bit unusual to find singers that sing (duh) in a low register most of the time. But I got used to it, and quite like it now for how unique it is. Gorgeous atmosphere, definitely. My only complaint, and with like most of this round's songs, is how short it feels - in my opinion, this track could have been developed a bit more. Other than that, this is excellent. +4/5

OHBOY, finally the tie in the lead has been broken, and Fluffy claims his crown, but he shall wait until after finals to see if he shall be crowned as the master of my roulette. In the meantime home solidifies his position in the top 5 at #4 with the biskit at the edge of it, with ToN just behind his very feet - a relisten and the round 10 results will determine who will get the precious ticket to THE INSANE EP ROUND IN WHICH YOU WILL ALL SUFFER WITH BAD SCORES. Unless a miracle (and a tragedy) occurs, the rest are unlikely to get a chance, but who knows - this last round is your last shot for 10 of you folks, so make it worth it.



So...

ROUND 10 ROUND 10 ROUND 10 ROUND 10 ROUND 10 ROUND 10


I have decided to wrap this part of the roulette up with a bang: the absolute time limit here is 18:30 mins, and not a single second more unless it's of silence or subtle fadeout. Of course you dont have to send something so long - I'll be equally happy if you submit an awesome 5-min track or a fantastic 17-min epic. You have 48 hours to send from now. Good luck!

awesome, i'm pretty much 100% out of the finals now  :tup

(i'm aware that i'm only 1.25 points behind 5th place rn tho but that's a lot in this roulette, even if i'm getting a 4.5 with this song unless sacul sucks (which he does) or someone else beat me to it)

I guess I still don't get your tastes or your roulette. Half the submissions were by your own request and yet you didn't seem to like many of those submissions anyways  :huh:

It's just odd that you seem to take so much pleasure in making these lists and yet, at the same time, seemingly little pleasure in listening to many of the bands you put on the list. Or am I misunderstanding?

Fluffy summed my tastes up very well quite early on the game.

I don't understand this - is it because of my scores on the list? It's just a reflection of how much I enjoy such albums, really - I've explored many of the bands I discovered there and enjoyed their stuff a lot.


it's more stuff that he wants to look into not knowing whether or not he'll enjoy it than music he knows he'll like in general
Definitely this - I even added lots of albums I know it's pretty probable I won't like just out of curiosity either for their "cult" status or something else.

i'd have sent something off the album you had on your list since i think it's a better album as a whole, except there's three songs and two of them are over 10 minutes, and the third is the weakest (still great tho)

plus, this is the band's best song anyways

1.5/5 hated it

Oh well. I tried, Sacul, I really tried, but I don't think I hit the mark that often. At least I got you to like Midnight pretty well—that's victory enough for me.

That's not what I meant. I was talking about your list in general and half of our submissions needing to come from that list and many of those submissions seeming to miss the mark (i.e. why put them on the list in the first place?)

Parama's explanation makes sense, I guess, it's just interesting--you giving us a list of albums you think you might be interested in and then having us send songs from those albums. Almost like you're spending more time finding music that you might be interested in than you are in actually listening to that music... And generally speaking I think my submissions outside of the 5 pre-approved albums from your list tended to score just as high if not higher than my submissions from the list. I guess that's what confused me.

I don't know if that makes any sense though, so I'll stop.

I came up with this send-from-list idea to kind of limit a bit the amount of albums I'd have to add to it - the list was already too big before this even started. Having people send only and only from the list wouldn't have made sense and probably pissed off everyone. This also serves me as a way to organize in what order I'll listen to some of the albums on it - instead of randomly choosing them, let folks at DTF help me make some killer combinations (just look at those in the "listening organised" page of the list). Having listened to aprox. 147 if the list albums so far, I wouldn't say I don't spend time listening to them.

But in my v3 in 2 years or so there ain't gonna be list-only entries :P

It has gotten out of hand I confess :lol - but I plan to put an absolute limit on 2k, and before reaching that, only adding albums from which I already know a song or two and sounds worth getting.

But this last week I've been purging it - going album through album to see if it's too obscure to even bother trying to find it. Most of those have been either trip-hop or japanese records  ;D

Looking back at this roulette I sent too much weird stuff because I thought you could handle it, when it turns out you couldn't really. I should have realized that earlier. Glad you liked Caravan Palace at least, I was pretty certain you would.

No idea what I'm going to send for the last round, but it's not going to be above 8 minutes. I might even resubmit something from a band you didn't like that much before.

Why not? It's a flawless song, deserves more recognition (even though it's fairly popular at this point already) and gets great scores as far as I know.

Just checked the last.fm,  :tup to whoever sent Citizen Erased, amazing song. Though I doubt Sacul will like it for some reason.

"Boring riff, annoys me to death tbh. This song is alright but it's too repetitive and the singer is annoying as hell, sounds like some shitty Dream Theater cover of Never Enough." +2.5/5

I never even thought of sending Muse in a roulette, but if I would, New Born would be my first and only thought for it. Best Muse song by far IMO.

*looks at last.fm*
“Huh, Sacul listened to Birds. WTF is up with that track order though?”
*looks it up, the international edition of the album has a totally different track order*

Anyway, you may wanna try the original album order. It could just be that I’m used to it one way and not the other though.

Post by: Sacul on March 11, 2016, 06:44:13 PM
I quite liked it, but I'll try it with the new tracklist soon :P

EDIT: Well, now that everyone can get into last.fm and check the songs, I'll post the remaning ones that aren't on Spotify bun on a YT playlist:

JOANNA NEWSOM - Emily
GLORYHAMMER - The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee (Live)
Spock's Beard - The Light (Live)
Homestuck - Moonsetter


Have fun guessing who sent what  :corn

We'll never be able to guess who sent Homestuck.

Glad that none of my EP artists have been sent. Unless you have a last-minute rule to throw a wrench into the works, mine is good to go. :letam:

Genuinely though, I can take The Light and Flow and leave everything else Neal Morse has ever done, with SB, solo or Transatlantic. In those two songs, he did everything I feel the need to hear him do.

My song could be one of the really fucked up ones, and depending which way it lands, so to speak, it's totally believable that Sacul might love it or hate it.

It'd have to get like a 1.5 to get me booted out of the top 5 though, surely.   :lol

Title: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! - RELISTENING PT 2 RESULTS! #HYPE!!
Post by: Sacul on March 13, 2016, 06:10:28 PM
So I've revisited rounds 6 to 9 (:neverusethis:) and I've got to say, I didn't expect some of these tracks to grow on me like they did. Sadly, round 7 didn't have any of them. One exception below. As before, short writeups.


Round 2

(425) Bon Iver - Skinny Love
The biggest grower on the whole damn roulette - I just love this more with each listen, and the only track from previous rounds I felt like revisiting for this ocassion. Damn, how this went from a +4 to this, is beyond me.
Previous score: +3.5
New score: 4

Round 6

(Tyrias) Azedia - Requiem for the New World
Ok I realize I was too harsh with this one. Yeah, the narration turns me off, but it doesn't last as much as I thought it did. Also, the instrumentation is pretty nice too, although I feel it drags a bit overall. Sorry for the rant back then  :angel: .
Previous score: 3
New score: 3.5

(Biskit) Pearl Jam - Black
The reason this one got a 3 was before although I like what I heard, I strugguled to remember anything from it except some vocal melodies. Now I realise that's because this band doesn't have an instantly recognizable, unique sound to them. And most melodies here aren't really memorable tbh. That being said, I have grown to appreciate the emotional power behind it, but just that.
Previous score: 3
New score: 3.5

(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Steam Powered Giraffe - Brass Goggles
Why is this so awesome?
Previous score: +4
New score: 4.5


Round 8

(home) God Is an Astronaut - Fire Flies And Empty Skies
So this might not be the most creative song on the roulette, and post-rock is certainly a genre I feel I'm done with having listened to the big artists. However this grew a bit on me. With that said, when it gets good, like in the last minute, it just ends in a really abrup way. So I don't think I can score it more than this.
Previous score: +3
New score: 3.5


(Elite) Theodor Bastard - Umbraya Erze
For some reason this kind of music makes me travel to distant, surreal landscapes. And I love it when it happens. Plus, I'm a bit of a sucker for this kind of dark world music with some tribal stuff in.
Previous score: +4
New score: 4.5


Round 9

(Parama) The Hirsch Effekt - Bezoar
This song is still a fucking mess, but now it's actually enjoyable for some reason. The "extreme" moments are still my least favourite, for I feel they're heavy for the sake of it, and to me that's pointless.
Previous score: 2.5
New score: 3

(Bolsters) - Pilgrim
Excellent production and vocals, but that trumpet still annoys me a bit.
Previous score: 3
New score: 3.5

(sneakyblueberry) Jeff Buckley - Vancouver
Well, Jeff surely put a lot of passion on his singing here.
Previous score: 3
New score: 3.5

(425) Bruce Dickinson - Arc of Space
I guess I just don't connect with the songwriting and how this song is built, yet the score I gave it before feels unfair.
Previous score: 3
New score: 3.5

(home) London Grammar - Hey Now
I'm in love with this - fantastic atmosphere and excellent vocals. It ends a bit abrupt tho.
Previous score: +4
New score: 4.5

.
.
.
Standings
36.5 - Fluffy Lothario
36.5 - Elite
+35.5 - Bolsters
+35 - home
34.5 - Biskit
+33.5 - Train of Naught
+33.5 - Shadow Ninja 2.0
(33.5 - Symphony)
+33 - Parama
+32.5 - Evermind
+32 - senecadawg2
+32 - Tyrias
+31.5 - 425
31 - splent
30 - Sneakyblueberry
27 - mikemangioy
.
.

So yet another tie in the lead, how surprising. Now home is pretty much into the finals at this point, as well as the Biskit. But will it remain this way with the next round? I may have talked too soon to predict if someone fell out of the top 5, but who knows...


Reminder Round 10 results will be up this Wednesday evening GMT -3.

gonna have to strongly disagree with you there.  even as someone only somewhat acquainted with their sound, it's pretty easy to tell a Pearl Jam song once it pops on, even if it's just through Eddies vocal.  He's the pioneer of that sort of drawly, almost Texan-sounding singing style that got absolutely raped in the post-Grunge era (i'm looking at you, Scott Stapp you crazy bastard).

And most melodies here aren't really memorable tbh

I think that this roulette, running for almost two months now, with 10 rounds and 15 players, can afford a one-day delay  :angel:

Post by: Sacul on March 17, 2016, 09:17:32 PM
ROUND 10 RESULTS!!!

So, a bit of a weak round I guess - although an improvement from the last one, it's far from the best. My guess is that some of you just sent whatever because it's the end. I've gotta admit I haven't been the best roulette host besides keeping a good pace - some of my writeups were pretty short and kind of useless, my posts overhyped, and my tastes still seem cryptic for some of you despite having written almost 5 pages on them :P

Enough mumbo-jumbo, have your results!



(Elite) Girl Band - Songs for Pears
I've been getting into experimental and all kinds of weird music this last year, so I've developed an strong appreciation for the unconventional. With a place in the finals assured, I guess you allowed yourself a little risk - yes, this and Fluffy's song are the two "fucked-up" tracks.

Sadly, this is a big fail in my eyes for several reasons: 1) I don't really like the approach the, uhm, singer takes. At all. Feels very amelodic, and although it fits the mood, I don't dig it. 2) It all feels very mechanic, and while I don't mind it at all on bands like Nine Inch Nails, it's different here, but not in a good way. 3) Although the guitars make some pretty interesting stuff, and they have an interesting sound to them, overall I feel this song goes nowhere.

All in all, a pretty curious effort that tries to push what's possible to make with rock instruments (I respect them for that) but just fails on the songwriting department. If this was the most accessible track, I don't want to imagine the others :lol 2.5/5


You ended up at #4 in my first roulette and now are at #3! Maybe if you play two roulettes more you'll end up first :neverusethis: Just kidding, you did pretty well overall with just a few duds, and are into the Finals!



(senecadawg2) GLORYHAMMER - The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee (Live)
I enjoy the Converge track you originally sent quite more :P

On a more serious note... well, it's kind of hard to be serious about this band, really - this is probably the cheesiest thing I've ever listened to, with those keyboards, a guitar solo, the dumb lyrics, the dull drumming. It's basically the genre summed up for me - maybe Evermind would love this :P My distaste for cheese has grown bigger with time, and although I may have enjoyed this two years ago, now I find myself watching the time for it to finish it. So, power metal is something I can't take seriously, and although I'm aware most of it isn't meant to, this is just ridiculous to the point of laughability with no taste. I'd rather listen to Ladybaby or something. 2.5/5

First of all, I apologise if some of my roulette behaviours and/or decisions quite bothered you - it wasn't really my intention, but I can see how I may have came across as rude or plain dumb. Sorry for that. Second, well... actually expected you to end up in the top 5 or even the top 3. Maybe you couldn't read that well into my tastes (they're all over the place, I admit), or just we aren't that compatible. Despite that, you sent some great stuff like The Antlers song, the Sylvan tune, and Like a Rolling Stone - I'll be looking into those albums. I'd like you to play in my v3 if you're around then, so you can have your vendetta. Thanks for playing!



(Evermind) Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys
So... I guess I only made it through this whole cheesefest only twice :lol

Sorry, but this just confirms Power Metal ain't my cup of tea like, at all. I added this album to the list because my theory that on any given genre, the big, iconic classics are way better than all those generic copies - maybe not the case here. So, to the song: it's just that kind of metal I can't get into for it doesn't resonate with me on any level. Not that there's anything wrong with this tune, because the singer is great and not that high-pitched (he reminds me to early James LaBrie), in general the track is well-built and while the guitar doesn't have the best production to it, it does its job well - but the song as a whole does nothing to me, thus I found myself skipping parts to parts whenever it came after the first listen. I wished I could be more specific, but can't find other explanation of why I'm not into this (besides the cheese), and probably never will. At least better than that Seventh Wonder track :P 3/5

Evermind, I realise you won my first roulette by taking advantage of that weird point system I had, and it helped you a lot (except in the last round with that Sonata Artica song), yet you won against Tyrias with the great Telegraph Road. On this v2, there is no point system - add to that the obligatory list songs, our not-so-compatible tastes, and you already got a pretty big challenge. For a good part of it, you got away with sending me some great tracks, but also some duds. You may not have retained your crown, but it was fun at least, wasn't it? Thanks for playing!



(Biskit) Explosions in the Sky - Last Known Surroundings
Oh, post-rock... a genre I feel I have enough of with GYBE! and Sigur Rós, for most other bands I've tried getting into I've found terribly generic, uninspired, and basically bad copies of Explosions in the Sky. And they weren't a good band to start with...

While this song has a nice atmosphere to it, and doesn't feel like it lasts too long, it's one of those tracks that leave little to no impressions on me - much like that Pearl Jam song, they have nothing I find any special. While I appreciate this isn't just one long buildup, it just goes nowhere, really - most post-rock it's just atmosphere and little songwriting, therefore it quite bores me with the exception of the two bands I mentioned earlier. I feel this is the highest score I can give to this track - nice, but unimpressive. 3/5

Oh dude, I'm sorry. I really wanted you to reach the finals, but you lost it with such little margin I almost feel bad about it. Funny how you sent me probably the best song of the roulette, but also some of the worst - quite similar to Parama. I know you may not have the biggest music library, and I kind of regret a bit doing those mini roulettes, but we had fun anyways! Thanks for playing ;D



(Tyrias) Clint Mansell - Death is The Road To Awe (The Fountain OST)
Your entry reminded me I wanted to watch this movie, and finally did so, but not before giving your song several listens. My impressions were that it was kind of a typical neoclassical soundtrack, but with some post-rock elements. While that would normally be a good formula, it falls flat imo. Maybe because it's Mogwai - I don't really like their music, as much as I've tried. Plus, this felt weird without context - what kind of scene does this epic piece illustrate?

So I watched the movie to see if my opinion changed. And... not really. I can see how it fits the movie and that particular part, which was kind of climatic I guess? But I don't feel it works out of that context, really. Not with like 3 buildups wtf. I mean, yeah it's pretty epic as a piece, but I don't really connect with it - felt the same with the movie's soundtrack. Because everybody mentioned it, I felt it would be awesome or something but most didn't sound really special or different to other modern OSTs imo. +3/5


How did you go from #2 in my v1 to bottom half on this one? And how come you're loving most of my championship submissions? These roulette things work in mysterious ways :P Well, even if you didn't do that well overall, you sent me some excellent stuff like Inhaler, and the Thrice and Caravan Palace tracks - I'll get to those albums soon!



(425) Spock's Beard - The Light (Live)
I quite like Neal Morse's work with Flying Colors and Transatlantic yet never felt compelled to check this band. So... it sounds like prog by the numbers, imitating 70s prog at times, but with a bit of a modern approach I guess? Nothing wrong per se with that, but I feel it's been done to death and no longer appeals to me. Like Fluffy said, I feel when listening to this song I have already heard everything I need to listen about his work. A bit of a shame, being such a prolific artist.

A pretty nice song that has some quite cool moments in which the guitars lead, but I don't really like some of the synth sound like that at ~8:45. Also, this song is all over the place, going from theme to theme. I normally wouldn't mid that approach if each section had enough time to develop a bit, and was awesome on its own. This just feels like it constantly jumps from idea to idea with no clear direction. For 16 minutes. I guess I deserve this :P +3/5

I feel you were probably the most affected by my roulette restrictions, but you still decided to play and sent me great music like Midnight (never imagined myself liking Coldplay :lol ), Heaven and Hell, and the Bon Iver song, even if it took ages to click. I hope you play in my v3 for a second chance!



(home) Amelie - La Valse D'Amelie (Piano)
Whys is that I received 3 soundtracks in the same round? :lol

At 2:40, I think it's the shortest song of the roulette - a pretty sweet piano piece. I'm a fucking sucker for piano-based music, but also quite picky about it, and more so if it's part of a soundtrack, for I feel most songs don't really work out of their original context. Or at least I need to experience them in that before listening to them on their own. Anyways, this is pretty nice, and passionate, and although I feel more development could have improved it, it's quite fine for it's length. Nothing too special, but very far from meh. 3.5/5

So after a brilliant beginning, you went downhill for almost 3 rounds then recovered in a magnificent way and managed to get into the Finals! Good luck!



(Shadow Ninja 2.0) Homestuck - Moonsetter
Wait, I think this is actually the shortest song of the roulette with just 2:20 mins. Kind of short writeup: pretty nice, charming song that wouldn't sound weird at all in an RPG. My knowledge of Homestuck is limited to knowing it's a pretty long webcomic with a huge fanbase - is it so dedicated they composed a soundtrack to it? Just curious.

All in all, a short sweet piece that would work great as soundtrack, but doesn't really stand on its own. 3.5/5

For half of the roulette you sent awesome stuff, and the rest just goods tracks or duds. I wonder if you self-sabotaged or something :P Anyway, there are already several albums you are making me want to check so I guess that's what matter in the end. Thanks for playing Mr Ninja!



(splent) The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds (7" Edit)
Pretty interesting song, based on a spoken-word sample of a girl talking about fluffy clouds or something - I have no clue what she's talking about, but damn her voice is bae. The electronic part is quite nice, maybe not extremely original, but they serve quite well as a background for the samples. There's nor much to say, I quite liked this song, didn't blow me away, will check this album, blahblahblah. 3.5/5

Oh dude, you started so well with La Villa Strangiato and B.O.B., then just went downhill and never recovered - don't worry, I'll check those albums. Roulettes can be tough, and mine wasn't an easy one - I hope you good luck in Bolsters' roulette!



(sneakyblueberry) JOANNA NEWSOM - Emily
This is both beautiful and a weird piece - the instrumentation is gorgeous, yet the structure is kind of all over the place. Probably due to the melodies, but had a tough time telling whether there were several movements and reprises, or if it jumped from idea to idea. After several listens, I feel it's the former. Still, it's all over the place. Also, I kind of got used to her voice, but it's a bit annoying when it gets harsh, for it sounds like she had flu or something. Still, a pretty enjoyable track. +3.5/5

Well, what can I say... that Frank Ocean song was excellent! But besides that, you've had more misses than hits - maybe our tastes aren't really that compatible. At least I can promise you to check lots of classic albums I have pensing ;) Thanks for playing!



(Bolsters) Broods - Superstar
I swear at first I thought it was Lorde who was singing, but maybe it's just the New Zealand accent. Well, both have pretty sexy voices so I don't mind the similarities! To the song: borderline with that crappy pop that it's so common on radio today. But I quite like this one more - nice atmosphere, great vocals, good production. Maybe not the most varied song on the round, but being under 4 mins and not repeating itself too much, it's quite good at what it attempts to do. Not much to say, other than I quite enjoyed it - not as much as some of your other pop tracks, but a pretty good entry anyways. 4/5

With very few duds, you managed not only to crack the top 5, but even surpass Elite, who had been dominating the second spot for most of the roulette! Despite me totally sucking in your roulette with the exception of two songs, I'm surprised how well you've been doing in mine - I guess I didn't read well into your tastes. Congratulations for the temporary silver medal and welcome to the finals!



(Train of Naught) Closure In Moscow - Happy Days
Ugh, I hope you can forgive the short writeup, for I don't have much to say about this track. Reminds me a bit of Arctic Monkeys, Foals, and Oasis. I quite like the vocals and the guitar work overall. But the production could be better - feels compressed and can barely hear some instruments at times. Overall, a pretty good alternative rock song - while it may not be creativity 101, it's quite enjoyable. 4/5

Despite being a bit inconsistent, I guess miracles happen for you managed to crack into the finals! :metal Your best song definitely was Entre 2 Mundos, so if you can find more stuff that basically screams Sacul, you should do fine.



(mikemangioy) Muse - Citizen Erased
Well, finally time to give Muse a listen I guess. I can definitely hear the Radiohead influences, so I'm glad they evolved from them to find their own sound. The song: pretty good, actually. I think this is easily your best song on the whole roulette - a pity it took you so long to 7send it :P

It's structured in an interested way, with that bombastic riff switched with ambient-ish sections and some ballad-like parts. Overall it's a mess, for they feel kind of disconnected, but I quite enjoy all of them. I also like the singer's voice and the guitar tone, yup. That weird "alarm" or whatever sound near the end didn't really distract me, unlike Parama :P 4/5

Where do I even begin? :lol I mean, dude, I fucking won your roulette and got you into David Maxim Micic and Destiny Potato, and other stuff, so at least I kind of expected you be middle of the pack here. Funny how your best song is your last one :P Thanks for playing!



(Parama) Ne Obliviscaris - Forget Not
Ohcrap, this is gonna be tough to write about, because there are many things going on here. So let's start from the beginning.

I *love* the intro with the violin, and when drums appear at 2:20, I'm in total love with the track - the string melodies are magnificent and the rest of the band quite great. So up until the first 6 mins everything is awesome. Then the violin kind of disappears and I'm left with the heavy drumming, and the singer appears out of nowhere in an awkward way - feels like he had been singing before or something, but got used to this thing. So from there it kind of goes ok - the song ain't as awesome as before, but far from bad. Then growls followed by a short breakdown, just to jump straight to shrieks (my least favorite part of the song), but then the violin reappears along with the growls and they make a beautiful contrast. So bad it didn't last longer, for while I don't mind the singer, I quite prefer the violin. And it's not the epic climatic ending I kind of expected, but it's fine for me.

So I find it kind of hard to rate this song - it starts amazing, and stays amazing for the first half. The second one goes a bit downhill, and while it doesn't have moments I actively disliked, some of them didn't do much to me. But the very ending was nice at least. +4/5

So... like the Biskit, you sent some of the best, but also some of the worst of the roulette. But since you don't seen to care, I can only guess your tastes are pretty awful :P Thanks for playing!



(Fluffy Lothario) Fire! Orchestra - Enter, Part One
Your song was one of the two "fucked-up" tracks, and unlike the other, this one is amazing. Like I said on that write-up, I've become more interested in experimental music. But not everything is gold - some artists I respect for their endeavours more than actually liking their music. This is a case were both intersect in a curious, even if weird way.

So, to the song - it's fucking weird. Vocals are creepy, the sax player is fucking insane, and the rest of the musicians are excellent. I really like the flow this track has, how they all get along making this. A remarkable moment is the female vocal performance on the second half - pure lunacy. Although it's one of the longest tracks on the round, it really didn't feel like it. I don't have much to say, other than this was full of great moments. Btw, our secret player submitted something from this band's first album in round one - I told him "nothing generic" and he looked straight into his avant-garde folder :lol So yeah, I can definitely see how "along with the Swans, these guys are about the most awesome band on the planet at the moment." 4.5/5

I dunno how many roulettes you've played, but man, you were on fire on this one - from the beginning you got a good grasp of what I liked and sent according to it, with some little interesting experiments here and there.I think you deserve your #1 spot, and on any other roulette you'd have already been given the crown - but that ain't how we do things here. Welcome to the finals.

To all of you, regardless of your score, thanks for playing! You have showed me at least one great song and artist, and for that I'm grateful. A v3 will happen in two years or three, so if you're still around, you're invited to play! I promise no list and baits that time :angel:

Finals
As I said in the OP, there's an EP round for the top 5 players to determine the winner. Rules are the following:

Scoring
So I didn't want something that would make Fluffy the only winner even if he screwed up, making this final round pointless. But even if his EP sucked, it'd be unfair to make him lose right away without taking the first 10 rounds into consideration, so a "best EP wins" wouldn't work. Ultimately, I've crafted a middle-of-the-road system, so that if he fails, home and ToN might have a chance to steal the crown if they shine, or tie the first place at least. Elite and Bolsters can also take the first spot if they do well ofc. So, how your EP shall be scored:

So the score should look like:

Score = EP average out of 20 + flow + RP
Thus, the maximum score you can get on this round is 25+RP.

It's more that I just tend to send songs randomly with no real strategy, and sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. It's probably best that I didn't make it to the finals anyway, since I hadn't even started to think about making an EP. :lol  Also, thanks for having me! It's been fun.


My knowledge of Homestuck is limited to knowing it's a pretty long webcomic with a huge fanbase - is it so dedicated they composed a soundtrack to it? Just curious.

Homestuck is kind of a mix of a lot of different mediums. Some sections take the form of animations, and those animations have music. There's a group of musicians who compose a lot of songs for Homestuck (like 15+ albums now I think, released on the Homestuck bandcamp page), and sometimes Andrew (the writer/artist) chooses one of those songs to feature in an animation.

Also read Homestuck, because it is awesome, and actually seems like the kind of thing you'd be into. And because it's awesome.

First you said:

Enough mumbo-jumbo

Then you said:

it's kind of hard to be serious about this band... the dumb lyrics, the dull drumming... power metal is something I can't take seriously, and although I'm aware most of it isn't meant to, this is just ridiculous to the point of laughability with no taste. I'd rather listen to Ladybaby or something.

And then you said:

I'd like you to play in my v3 if you're around then, so you can have your vendetta.

So it doesn't matter what you'd like--unless you want to pay me or something, I'm not going to open the thread.

I wasn't going to participate in this roulette until Lucas asked me to. I just wish I'd taken the warning above his avatar more seriously--he's not joking about being a music elitist.

The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee is just my way of sticking the middle finger, Ruslan gets it   :lol

2.5 out of 5 :lol

Yes, I did take a 'risk' there, although there was basically no way I would not make the Finals (unless I scored like a 0.5 and the rest score a 4 or higher). The song is indeed fucked up, and it didn't pay off well (it's called Pears of Lunch by the way). I'm gathering tracks for the EP Round now and will send them when ready.

I did think I had a chance of making the finals when sending that song, but no way I thought it was possible after the re-listening adjustments. I think you'll really like this album though, it's very Mars Volta-y (this song probably has the least Mars Volta resemblance out of all of them).

So, a couple of questions here. In the final round, does everyone start with a clean slate? Or do you count upwards from our current scores. This is a pretty big deal because if fluffly is already +3 points ahead I have to take some risks and stuff. Also, will you post the scoring system before the deadline to send the EP's? I might want to wait for that to be sure, I have already thought about the EP for a bit, but not very seriously because I didn't think I'd make the finals.
Just thought of this too: How do you handle 2 minute interlude tracks/tracks to connect other songs? I have one or two of those in mind but I don't know if you can score them properly compared to actual songs.

By the way the composer of the track I sent is Yann Tiersen (instead of Amelie :p), I probably like this song too much because I have played it way too often on piano :azn:

(sneakyblueberry) JOANNA NEWSOM - Emily
This is both beautiful and a weird piece - the instrumentation is gorgeous, yet the structure is kind of all over the place. Probably due to the melodies, but had a tough time telling whether there were several movements and reprises, or if it jumped from idea to idea. After several listens, I feel it's the former. Still, it's all over the place. Also, I kind of got used to her voice, but it's a bit annoying when it gets harsh, for it sounds like she had flu or something. Still, a pretty enjoyable track. +3.5/5

Well, what can I say... that Frank Ocean song was excellent! But besides that, you've had more misses than hits - maybe our tastes aren't really that compatible. At least I can promise you to check lots of classic albums I have pensing ;) Thanks for playing!

ahaha, that's a score better than I thought you'd give it!  glad you enjoyed it somewhat, although your criticism on the structure isn't warranted imo. 

the song sounds through composed at first, but it follows a set structure, that sort of shrinks. if you gave each section a letter it'd be: (A-B-C)-(D)-(A-B-C)-(A-B)-(D).

thanks for having me in your roulette! even tho it was super frustrating @ times :lol :tup

Welcome to the finals.

And for the first time, I top a round.  :lol

I'm curious as to what else Mr Mystery Player sent if he has Fire! Orchestra on hand.

I could write pages about F! O, they are mindblowing. They're one of those acts like The Mars Volta or the Swans that are just wiping their asses with the rulebook. Oh, and yeah, their singers are nuts. The last 1/4 of their first album, Exit!, is unlistenable even to me, as the singer goes a bit too mental (and there's not enough going on musically). On Enter, it's more moderate insanity spread out across the entire album.

They have a new album scheduled for the end of April, by the way.

If you like that kind of sax playing (which is basically just free jazz sax), you should check out Coltrane's later albums (like Ascension and Meditations), Pharoah Sanders (Karma, Black Unity, and he appeared on Jazz Composers Orchestra, as well as those Coltrane albums), Albert Ayler (Spirits) and Eric Dolphy (Out to Lunch).

This is that sax player, Mat Gustafsson, with a different band called The Thing, plus a guest sax player from another free jazz band from the '80s I've never heard of, but are apparently great. I didn't like what I checked out of The Thing's studio stuff, but this gig is like tapping the fucking source, pure absolute fire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsQYrQ3XvHU

My taste is fairly weird, so I don't play in tons of roulettes because the stuff I would send ain't gonna appeal to a lot of people. Just recently is the first time I've done any in years.

So, a couple of questions here. In the final round, does everyone start with a clean slate? Or do you count upwards from our current scores. This is a pretty big deal because if fluffly is already +3 points ahead I have to take some risks and stuff. Also, will you post the scoring system before the deadline to send the EP's? I might want to wait for that to be sure, I have already thought about the EP for a bit, but not very seriously because I didn't think I'd make the finals.
Just thought of this too: How do you handle 2 minute interlude tracks/tracks to connect other songs? I have one or two of those in mind but I don't know if you can score them properly compared to actual songs.
I'm still constructing the scoring system in a way that allows everyone to win but still counting the little advantage you had with the position in the top 5. Yes, I'll post it this weekend. Well, I'll individually rank the songs, and an interlude will receive a good score if it really works as such - if not, probably a low score.


Wow, nice that I made it to the finals! Is it possible to send files via the forum? Or should I upload them somewhere or something?

By the way the composer of the track I sent is Yann Tiersen (instead of Amelie :p ), I probably like this song too much because I have played it way too often on piano :azn:
Via PM should be fine. I exactly know that feeling, some pieces are way more moving when played by yourself.


the song sounds through composed at first, but it follows a set structure, that sort of shrinks. if you gave each section a letter it'd be: (A-B-C)-(D)-(A-B-C)-(A-B)-(D).
That makes sense, but I struggled to tell them apart so it all kind of blurred, but it's still pretty nice :P


If you like that kind of sax playing (which is basically just free jazz sax), you should check out Coltrane's later albums (like Ascension and Meditations), Pharoah Sanders (Karma, Black Unity, and he appeared on Jazz Composers Orchestra, as well as those Coltrane albums), Albert Ayler (Spirits) and Eric Dolphy (Out to Lunch).

This is that sax player, Mat Gustafsson, with a different band called The Thing, plus a guest sax player from another free jazz band from the '80s I've never heard of, but are apparently great. I didn't like what I checked out of The Thing's studio stuff, but this gig is like tapping the fucking source, pure absolute fire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsQYrQ3XvHU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsQYrQ3XvHU)

Sounds good  :tup I doubt I will actually win this, but I'm pretty much 100% sure that there's nothing I can add or cut out to make it better, so I'm satisfied with the one I just sent, no short intro tracks in the end.

If my calculations are correct, there's a good 60% chance of Dutch victory, bring it on home boys!  :metal

(425) Spock's Beard - The Light (Live)
I quite like Neal Morse's work with Flying Colors and Transatlantic yet never felt compelled to check this band. So... it sounds like prog by the numbers, imitating 70s prog at times, but with a bit of a modern approach I guess? Nothing wrong per se with that, but I feel it's been done to death and no longer appeals to me. Like Fluffy said, I feel when listening to this song I have already heard everything I need to listen about his work. A bit of a shame, being such a prolific artist.

I figured this would be your reaction. I feel like you could summarize a lot of division between prog fans just by asking whether you're more of a fan of Neal Morse or Steven Wilson. Neal doesn't change styles much, staying mostly instead in one moderately accessible style that emphasizes positivity and epic-ness, writing consistently strong music in that style, while Steven switches up styles all the time and sometimes gets into some pretty weird and dark stuff. I'm more of a Neal fan than a Steven fan, in that I like just strong melodic music and don't mind if an artist sits in a pretty similar and well-trodden stylistic space, so long as they maintain a really high level of quality in that space. And obviously you're more of a Steven fan, probably because you like experimentation and doing different things and you get bored if an artist sits in familiar stylistic territory.

I don't know, that's just a thought I had about prog fans and why I'm totally not surprised that you aren't crazy about Neal Morse.


Also, this song is all over the place, going from theme to theme. I normally wouldn't mid that approach if each section had enough time to develop a bit, and was awesome on its own. This just feels like it constantly jumps from idea to idea with no clear direction. For 16 minutes. I guess I deserve this :P +3/5

Yeah, and see, this is exactly how I felt about this song the first four or five times I listened to it. Eventually it just clicked and it all fell into place for me. So I might suggest giving it another try down the road, especially if you find yourself singing "I. AM. THE CATFISH MAN."


I feel you were probably the most affected by my roulette restrictions, but you still decided to play and sent me great music like Midnight (never imagined myself liking Coldplay :lol ), Heaven and Hell, and the Bon Iver song, even if it took ages to click. I hope you play in my v3 for a second chance!

Honestly, just the fact that you listed Midnight right after "great music" makes it worth it for me. Glad you liked a few things, enjoyed playing this! We'll see about v3 in 2025 when that happens... depends on if I have enough music by then.  :P

I had planned to send this song in the EP round, assuming I got to it, but once I was constructing a playlist, I realised you can't really get poppy jazzy Swedish rap to gel with other songs. However, it's maybe the coolest song ever written, so go nuts.

Well, I'll start listening once I get all the EPs, which are due tomorrow. Then, because of the epic length of them all, it should normally take me around a week, but I'm travelling to Bs As this Monday evening because of SW's gig next day, and coming back the other, and also getting back home for Easter and... I'd say no more than two weeks.

Don't worry, I'll post tidbits and other crap to keep this thread alive :P

Yeah, Movits! are quite snazzy. I should have sent the damn song in the regular rounds. Or, you know, come to think of it, maybe it would have worked between the second and third tracks on the EP...

Totally fair dude, go with it.

I personally won't change a thing because my EP is very confined to a theme sorta, there's nothing I can replace/add and not take away from the overall value. Maybe it would score better because individual songs will probably weigh more than flow and stuff, but I'm going to keep this one as it is.

So it's only home until you have them all I assume?

I mixed my songs into one .flac file with audacity (thanks Evermind  :P) and then uploaded it using MEGA.nz (https://mega.nz/). You can use this to upload the separate songs too though.

If you've uploaded it just right click it to view the link. From there you can copy the link + code and send it to Sacul. If this is all too vague I guess a Spotify or Youtube playlist works too.

Not too sure about some things in mine.

I think the first three tracks will do well enough, I can't see them being hated.
Track #4 could be hit or miss.
Track #5 was probably a big mistake, I can see this scoring low.
Track #6 is the climax of my EP, according to our host each EP has at least one great song, I think this is mine.
Track #7 I'm not really sure about, I mostly added it because I didn't think the ending to Track #6 was suitable for the closing of the EP. This song is a good closer I think and I had enough room for it, though I'm not really sure what Sacul's reaction will be.

I do believe I will score well regarding flow.

I don't have any idea how he'll like it, could very well be one of the disappointments.

For some reason I think he'll really like my 2nd song though it could be a big miss aswell.
My 4th song is the climax of the EP, and while not my favorite song of the bunch, the chorus is definitely my favorite moment of the EP. I'm starting to get my doubts though as I realize the chorus sounds very much like something that could be on a Coheed and Cambria song.

I'm interested to see how that Movits! song is going to fit in an EP :lol I thought it was a really cool and unusual type of song, but as of now I can't see how you follow up a song like that, I guess we'll see. I will leave it to Sacul to reveal the partial tracklist, I think the only thing I've revealed so far is that there's a Slipknot song in there.

At the end of this I will likely check out the other EP's.
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v2. Vendetta! - FINALS LISTENING HAS BEGUN!!!!1!!
Post by: Fluffy Lothario on March 29, 2016, 11:07:52 AM
Without giving too much away, my EP has two "sides", and they're fairly distinct from each other. The Movits! track's at the end of the first half, so the EP completely changes tack after that. Otherwise, you're right, it'd be damn hard to get the next track not to clash horribly.

If there was a track on my EP that I would say is a fairly safe bet to do well, it'd be the last, I guess. But who knows, Sacul could love or totally not love anything on there.

Now seeing how he responds to Slipknot, THAT will be interesting.

Tidbits time! Most writeups are one-sentence stuff by now, which I plan on expanding later for results, but these are the most interesting ones.


Yeah, that's a pretty epic chorus.

This song is all over the place if you listen closely, but it just works. Damn it does.

This has a haunting atmosphere, but I'm afraid it isn't as good songwriting-wise.

This... fucking destroys all my biases against this artist. Wow. Probably the best song of the round, and among the best in the roulette.

Well, this is some pretty nice piano indeed!

I struggled to difference this one song and the following, for they feel very similar, and while that wouldn't be a problem if they were awesome, they sadly aren't.

This sounds like some generic alternative metal [...], nothing remarkable imo.

Sadly, your EP goes downhill after it.

While I appreciate the mix of genres and styles here... I just don't dig this, really. I mean, while it's enjoyable, I find no strong connection between this and me.

Just... no. I don't dig [genre] at all, and this is no exception. The only bits I enjoy are the last ones, for they are acoustic and atmospheric, but nothing special in the end.

There isn't a second of my EP that is acoustic, or alternative metal, but nor is there an artist that Sacul would've had a pre-established bias about, that I know of.

So I call these two.
I struggled to difference this one song and the following, for they feel very similar, and while that wouldn't be a problem if they were awesome, they sadly aren't.

Sadly, your EP goes downhill after it.

This... fucking destroys all my biases against this artist. Wow. Probably the best song of the round, and among the best in the roulette.

Slipknot? Don't destroy the bias man, they only have a handful of songs like this..
This has a haunting atmosphere, but I'm afraid it isn't as good songwriting-wise.
Nevermind, you probably hated it anyways

I feel like the first 5 could all be mine but probably only one of them is. Maybe the epic chorus is my fourth song?

 And I have a bad feeling that the generic alternative metal one is my third song.

This could be respectively about the 4th, 5th and 1st songs

Really no idea what you think of the last songs, they remind me a little bit of Neutral Milk Hotel, but I can completely understand it if you don't like them  :biggrin:

Asymmetry is home
Florence + The Machine is fluffy
I don't know the first thing about 'Haamoja' but the cover looks like it's something fucked up and I'm guessing Elite
Mr. Bungle I'm calling is Elite aswell
I've tried this Deafheaven album but I didn't last very long, probably Elite aswell
Movits! is Fluffy for obvious reasons
Bolsters' tastes are all over the place so I wouldn't know anything for sure, but Blackmill is amazing and seems like most likely Bolsters for some reason

Post by: Sacul on April 02, 2016, 07:39:51 PM
Ok folks, this is it: the Finals results. It's been quite a journey, hasn't it? Both frustrating and funny, but I don't regret having 15 players - each of you has shown me some great stuff, some more than others. I won't do another roulette in the next two years with all this music and some discoveries I'll make on my own. All in all, thanks for playing and being patient for results!

Now, to what you've been waiting for. I wanted to add some suspense so I'll only reveal each player's result in ascending order, one per post, so that means...
5
home - The Effervescing EP


1. Nothing More - Christ Copyright
This sounds like some generic alternative metal with djent and some electronics, nothing remarkable imo. Basically this - didn't find anything worth mentioning about this song, sorry. 2.5/5

2. Karnivool - Eidolon
So you wanted me to like this band? Well, to be honest, these roulette songs have convinced me they aren't for me. I mean, I enjoy these tracks, but I don't feel the urge to listen to any more of this band. I can't exactly pin out why, but their style ain't my cuppa tea. 3/5

3. Karnivool - Alpha Omega (Ghost City Sessions)
I swear this one flows so well from the previous one I thought they were a single track at first lol. Basically the same as the other, only a bit better. I enjoy how this song gets heavier at times tho. +3/5

4. Wrongkong - Radiohits for Idiots (Ghost City Sessions)
Ok this is a pretty unusual song, and a different track from the others. Starts a bit odd with those old organ sounds, but then build ups on atmosphere, adding layers of pads and guitars, resulting into something similar to 90s Porcupine Tree. And I quite enjoy it - great outro. 4/5

5. Philip Glass - Etude No.6 (played by Maki Namekawa)
Yup, another great piano piece. I think Nekov sent me the Opening of Glassworks, and although I enojy that recording, didn't prompt me to explore him further. Maybe this will chage it, for it's quite a great piece, despite being short and repetitive. 4/5

6. Syd Barrett - Octopus
I guess I can see why you love this stuff, but it's probably not for me. It's a matter of melodies - I don't dig them at all. Dunno if they sound "dated", but those chord progressions... do nothing to me. I wished I know more music theory so I explain myself better. So the song... is ok I guess? I struggled to tell the difference between this and the following two. 3/5

7. Syd Barrett - Effervescing Elephant
Certainly a goofy, short track, that didn't do anything for me. 2.5/5

8. Syd Barrett - Golden Hair
Mmmnnn... no. Really, dunno what to say about such short song, other than what I said about the other Barret ones. Meh. 2.5/5

Overall
Quite inconsistent EP, with some great tracks, a few good ones, and several duds. Maybe fitting 8 songs on it wasn't the best choice, for the flow suffers, and the transitions between some tunes are awkward. While not catastrophic, some tinkering would have improved this aspect a lot.

EP Average = 12.38/20
Flow = 3/5
RP = 1

Score
= 16.38


Final thoughts
You basically started rocking the roulette and then went downhill, only to return triumphant and secure a spot in the finals. And now last place on it lol. A bummmer, really, since you had sent me some awesome music before. Well, at least I have some new albums to spin! Thanks for playing!

Damn, 8 songs.

I've never listened to Syd Barrett's solo albums, but Piper at the Gates of Dawn is my favourite Floyd album and it's basically all him. Even most of the songs on that aren't brilliant as stand-alone tracks though, it's the kind of album where all the pieces come together to make a really neat whole.

I have a friend who has Piper at the Gates of Dawn and In the Aeroplane Over the Sea both very high in his favourites, and when he told me that, I suddenly clicked how similar those albums are despite being completely different. Both are very experimental sprawling whimsical albums evoking childhood with a lot of trippy imagery and such.

If I was going for a 1.5/5 from the music I actually like, I'd probably go with Bob Dylan - I Shall Be Free No. 10.
Title: SECOND ELIMINATION
Post by: Sacul on April 02, 2016, 10:38:53 PM

Elite - Tsilyalp s'Sacul

1. Valravn - Krummi
Yes, YES. This is pretty haunting on atmosphere, like a tribal version of bjork, but with better music ;) . I really dig the anger on her voice, and the epic ending. It could have done with a few more instrumental sections tho, for it's mostly sung. Sadly, your EP goes downhill after this, but excellent song! 4.5/5

2. Mr Bungle - The Air-Conditioned Nightmare
While I appreciate the mix of genres and styles here... I just don't dig this, really. I mean, while it's enjoyable, I find no strong connection between this and me. A friend even told me I shouldn't start listening to Mr Bungle through this track lol. I guess I'm just gonna prefer Faith No More :P +3/5

3. Agent Fresco - See Hell
I recall you sending me this artist in the previous roulette, and haven't checked that album, their debut, many times lel. So to the song, I'll be quick: I liked it, but didn't find it any special. No memorable melodies, nor standouts moments. Just a nice track. 3/5

4. The Fall of Troy - Chapter IV: Enter the Black Demon
Reminds me of post-hardcore? Mathcore? Something similar. Dunno if "generic" would be fair for this, but it mostly doesn't appeal to me. I don't connect with it in any sense - melodies don't grab me, the guitar playing is just ok, boring use of harsh vocals in the chorus, the calmer bits bored me, etc. Nice drumming tho. 2.5/5

5. Deafheaven - Come Back
Just... no. I don't dig black metal at all, and this is no exception - I just don't connect with most of the genre in any way, neither emotionally nor musically. The only bits I enjoy are the last ones, for they are acoustic and atmospheric, but nothing special in the end. This was a chore to get through, sorry. +2/5


Overall
After such great beginning, it's amazing how the other tracks pale to it. Despite that, it actually has a very good flow, and the transitions between different styles don't feel forced at all. Nice EP name btw.

EP average = 12.4/20
Flow = 4/5
RP = 1.25

Score = 17.65

Final thoughts
With a pretty good, consistent output and just a few duds, you did pretty well on this roulette, but your EP really disappointed me, mate - I guess our tastes are just quite different. Oh well. Thanks for playing and showing me some great stuff!

By the way, I heavily disagree on See Hell not having any memorable melodies, that's just bullshit, but alright, you probably didn't like it as much as I did.

On the last two tracks, I really wanted you to like both, because I thought you would appreciate them with enough listens. Especially the Deafheaven track could be really rewarding.

Thanks for having me and hosting this roulette. I think I did quite well in the end ;)

Yeah, same thoughts about See Hell, it might've been on the lower side of things in the round it was sent in my roulette (I'm liking it more now though), but "memorable vocal melodies" were never absent :lol that's pretty much the definition of this song. Whether they're memorable in a good or bad way, well that's up to the listener, but I can't ever read the name See Hell without thinking "We open up to, seeeeeee he-eeell"

I kind of expected to be fifth, I knew you weren't a big fan of Karnivool, but I hoped to change your mind, at least Alpha Omega got a 3,5. Funny that Radiohits for Idiots got a 4, adding it was really an impulse. I knew Syd Barrett's stuff would be a hit or miss, I don't know a lot of people who like his stuff. I reaally love it but I can completely understand the scores for that. Also you were quite generous with the flow score  :lol

Anyway, I really enjoyed playing in the roulette! Thanks :azn:


karnivool really is nothing special though, yeah. sound awake's alright. a few good tracks. but nothing that fantastic.
:loser: 

I have a friend who has Piper at the Gates of Dawn and In the Aeroplane Over the Sea both very high in his favourites, and when he told me that, I suddenly clicked how similar those albums are despite being completely different. Both are very experimental sprawling whimsical albums evoking childhood with a lot of trippy imagery and such.

I agree about the similiarity, though In the Aeroplane Over the Sea reminds me even more of Syd's solo albums (which are not as brilliant as the Piper, but still have a place), mainly because of the unpolished recording and voice. In fact, the fact that In the Aeroplane Over the Sea was in Sacul's top 50 albums list was one of the reasons for sending some of Syd's solo songs.

I guess with See Hell it has the kind of melodies I don't find memorable, while others do. They just don't stick with me.

Train of Naught - Secrecy EP

1. Sean Ashe - Imagine
A very relaxing, interesting opener that isn't too minimalist to be boring nor uncreative to be filler. Very good use of guitars, reminds me a bit to David Maxim Micic's chill tracks. It has grown a bit on me so I guess I'll eventually check this album. 4/5

2. Slipknot - Danger - Keep Away
Well, I definitely didn't expect something like this from this band - when I saw them in the tracklist, I was ready for something br00tal. This is pretty interesting indeed, for it has a nice dark atmosphere and is certainly chill. Kind of fits weird after such a joyful track like Imagine, but I don't mind. I guess this will be the closes that I'll be to liking this band :P 3.5/5

3. Deftones - Tempest
This seems to basically be the definition of alternative metal but unlike most bands in that style I've listened to, Deftones have their own sound. And while that's something I appreciate a lot, it ain't enough for me. I guess this track fails on the melodies to grab me - they're not in a style I dig, really. Yes, the chorus is catchy and nice, but I guess I've listened to better ones. I quite enjoy the song, but it doesn't resonate with me much. The singer is nuts tho. 3.5/5

4. Children of Nova - Second Sight Blackout
Yes, the chorus is pretty epic and I like it, but I don't find the rest of the song that interesting tbh. Maybe it's the melodies? It pretty much happens the same as with the Deftones song. 3.5/5

5. Like Thieves - Ghost in the Machine
I feel like this track closes the EP pretty well, with that bombastic beginning and the great chorus. Although it sounds similar in style to the previous two songs, I feel the moelodies of the vocals and the guitars are stronger here, more memorable. there's definitely that "epic ending" vibe here, and I dig it. Didn't blow me away, but it more than closes the EP well. 4/5


Overall
A pretty good EP that starts and ends great, but what's in the middle I found nowhere as interesting. At first I thought it nailed the flow score, but with more spins I realised how odd the first two tracks sounds together. The other songs blend very well tho.

EP Average = 14.8/20
Flow = 4/5
RP = 0

Score = 18.8

Final Thoughts

With a bit of an inconsistent output during the roulette, you managed to get into the Finals by a hair. How epic it'd have been if you won this round, but I guess this is already better than what you expected. Thanks for showing me some great stuff like Lechuga, I'll be jamming the shit out if it :metal Thanks for playing!

I wanted too, but they just never clicked  :(

I guess I don't find much similarity between NMH and the Syd songs - at least not with ITAOTS, and in a melodic sense they're pretty different. And Jeff is pure raw passion, poor Syd was nuts :P

Post by: Train of Naught on April 03, 2016, 03:00:54 PM
 :tup

I already knew the #1 spot was pretty much no option here, so I'm pretty comfortable with #3. It's the closest I've ever come to winning one of these :lol

Not gonna lie though, I had my doubts about Deftones but I was very confident in Slipknot and Children of Nova, and the flow between #1 and #2, well yeah.. Sean Ashe was kinda my 'filler track', couldn't find something that fit better before Danger - Keep Away, I tried to fix it with the editing but it was still kinda awkward.

I guess me thinking that Children of Nova song had a bit of a Coheed vibe without the poppy stuff doesn't help either since you don't even like that band.

After frantically listening to my own EP ever since I made it I would say the first and last songs are my least favorite, and Second Sight Blackout, like I said in the writeup, is always the big climax of the song I'm looking forward to when the EP starts, phenomenal song by a band that unfortunately doesn't exist anymore and hasn't put out anything near as good.

i mean if your EP average is 3.7/5 you did a pretty good job imo

Yeah I guess it is. But if these were the 3 'disappointments I'm looking forward to the 4.5/5 average EP's, unless this wasn't one of them and there's still one disappointment left.

Bolsters - Roulette EP
1. Haamoja - Return To Zero
Well, this is some pretty nice piano indeed! Reminds me of a 90s JRPG piece. Maybe a bit... cheesy, or amateur-ish? Feels more like belonging to a videogame OST than a standalone piece tbh, but it serves well as EP opener I guess. 3.5/5

2. zircon - Skyline
I struggled to difference this one and the following, for they feel very similar, and while that wouldn't be a problem if they were awesome, they sadly aren't. This is probably the kind of electronic music I can't get into, breakbeat. Like Venetian Snares, it has some interesting rhythms and fast drums, but I'm a melody guy. And these rhythms aren't impressive either, for it's the classic breakbeat one all over the place, so... It was ok. 3/5

3. zircon - Timeless
Pretty much what I said on the previous track, except I like this a bit more since it has more variety, but that's it. I added Identity Sequence by this guy to the list because I stumbled upon Neurobazaar on Spotify and it quite impressed me for its mix of electronic sounds and world textures - something like that would have scored better I guess. Anyways, an enojyable tune. +3/5

4. Blackmill - The Drift
So the two Blackmill tracks are what had you worried? I can't see why since they're better than what's before. A short but pretty epic track I quite enjoyed. +3.5/5

5. Blackmill - Let It Be (feat. Veela)
Interesting song, serving as a breather after such intense songs. The production and atmosphere are great, as well as the vocals. Maybe a bit amateur-ish, but quite more refined than the previous songs. +4/5

6. BT - Every Other Way
The climax of the EP, as you said. At first I thought it dragged, but I've got used to it and think it's quite impressive how well this track flows and doesn't feel too long. Very good atmosphere and nice vocals. The outro is weird, indeed, but I like it. +4/5

7. BT - Always
Well, this could have been the climax of the EP for it feels... bigger, more epic, even if it is shorter than Every Other Way. As the previous track, it has a great stmosphere and some nice vocal lines. 4/5

Overall

A bit of a disappointing EP at first, but one that has grown on me a lot, lucky you ;) Just a few duds that prevented this from getting a higher score. Fantastic flow, given that most tracks are basically electronic, so it all remains cohesive, and there are calm moments between the more intense sections so it is an easy listen.


Average score = 14.86/20
Flow = 5/5
RP = 2

Score = 21.86

Final thoughts

Very consistent through all the roulette, appealing to my poppiest, more electronic side and showing me some fantastis stuff with only a few downsides. Thanks a lot for playing, and I hope you participate in my v3 whenever it happens!

Fluffy Lothario - ;D / :sadpanda:

1. Silverchair - Across the Night
Pretty interesting song, and more knowing its background. Joyful and fun, grandiose with the symphonic elements. The melodies are nice though not really special - doesn't surprise me considering they used to be a grunge group. But the emotion behind it is enough to proper me to check the album some day. Great track. 4/5

2. Kimbra - Come Into My Head
I had seen Kimbra's name being tossed around here and there, but had no clue about what kind of music she made. Well, this is surprising - a mix of several styles that work very well together, giving this track quite a unique personality. Her voice has a lot of attitude too. Yup, I quite like this. +4/5

3. Movits! - Sammy Davis Jr.
Dunno if it is "the coolest song ever" but it's a strong contender - just pure fun and joy is what I hear. Maybe a bit too repetitive in terms of songwriting, but other than that, it was very good. 4/5

4. Ben Howard - Depth Over Distance
Damn, this track has a fantastic atmosphere, with those soft vocal harmonies. I have no clue what's going on behind the vocals, feels like the guitars are fucking around or something. Probably what prevents me from loving this track are the vocal melodies - they're nice, but there are barely any moments in which he isn't singing, making it feel like he's stretching some melodies. And the songwriting is ok I guess. +3.5/5

5. Beck - Lonesome Tears
Last year I checked Odelay! but didn't really like it - I just couldn't connect with it in any sense. Well, this song is already better than such album at least. Interesting symphonic piece that could have been a bit more epic, but that I quite enjoy, and makes me want to give Beck another chance. 4/5

6. Florence + the Machine - Seven Devils
Ok, the previous writeups I had for you disappeared so I'm rewriting everything. And yes, this one is the song that destroyed what I thought about her. I mean, I'd heard of Florence a lot, but for some reason thought it was just another pop artist for hipsters that I'd probably don't like. Well, this is just fantastic. Such a big, epic, grandiose song that sounds almost apocalyptic with those pianos and her haunting voice. Starts great, and ends awesome. I'm really looking forward to listen to this album and her debut. And the third one too, what the hell. The best song of the round. 4.5/5


Overall
After such a great performance during the roulette, and considering you have a huge, diverse musical library, it didn't surprise me you still had lots of great stuff for me. I expected great things from your EP, and it certainly didn't disappoint - hell you even sent the best song of the round, barely ahead of Elite's opener. Great songs here, and kind of weird choices, for one half of the EP is pretty joyful and happy, while the other becomes somber. The flow within each half is excellent, but between these two is a bit weird.


EP Average = 16.33/20
Flow = 4/5
RP = 3.25

:2metal: Score = 23.58 :2metal:

Final thoughts

After reading your top 50 list, I knew you weren't the tipical proghead lurking DTF, and as my tastes have been expanding way out of prog, I thought it'd be interesting to have you participating here. And you exceeded my expectations, leading the roulette for more than half the rounds, showing me some amazing music - your consistency is almost ridiculous. Like Evermind, as a bonus for winning this roulette, you have reserved a spot in my next roulette, whenever it happens, if you want to play.



So that's it folks - the most pretentious frustrating roulette ever has reached to an end! I'll update the "Best of Roulette" playlist later to include this last round, and provide links to the EPs in case you're interested. And post how much Parama's EP sucked :neverusethis:

Hope you had fun - see you in my v3!  :smiley:

After sending I thought maybe you'd think Let It Be was a bit dragged out and too dubsteppy, and then later I thought you might think The Drift was repetitive. I did think Return To Zero and the zircon tracks would do better than they did, though.

Anyway, I went into this roulette thinking I was going to be at the bottom the whole time, so I can't really complain about coming second. I really surprised myself, and probably you too. :lol I'm definitely in it for the v3 whenever that happens.

Congrats to the victor aswell! :tup

The contrast between how well I did in this roulette and how poorly I’ve done in the other two from recently (coming last, kicked out in first qualifier) is amusing.  :lol I’m happy I could give you a bit of stuff you really liked though.

For the record, I thought Kimbra’s first album was great, then her second fell totally flat on me. Though that‘s definitely not everyone’s thoughts on it.

I feel the same about Beck’s regular stuff. The music is incredibly creative, not bad at all, but after checking out a few albums, I just found I felt no connection to it at all. His lyrics are abstract, but unlike a lot of artists, he doesn’t really evoke a tone or speak through them, it’s just a bunch of wacky shit. Sea Change and Morning Phase are the polar opposite, basically all tone, very grounded and emotional. Still very experimental, but in a more understated way.

Ceremonials is definitely the darkest, gothiest Florence album, so check that out for sure. Though make sure you hear the bonus stuff as well. Remain Nameless and Strangeness and Charm are better than anything on the album itself (I very nearly sent Remain Nameless instead) and the “acoustic” Breaking Down pisses on the album version. If you want to hear what she’s like at her best, yet not dark at all, check out the song How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.

By the way, had I held Bic Runga until this round and sent Movits! earlier, I probably would have used Ruby Nights and Jeff Buckley’s Dream Brother and made my entire EP dark as hell.

Oh, by the way, can you post the best of roulette here as a list or something? Some of us are technologically backward and won't make the leap to Spotify for years yet, probably.

Sure, I'd probably make it a YT playlist, or just a text thing if I don't have time. Give me a couple hours.

BEST OF ROULETTE 2016

Every song with at least a 4 has been included here, so great stuff ensured. I'll bold my favorites (those which received a 4.5 or more):

All of these are great, so I hope you find some stuff you like  :smiley:

So I shamelessly stole Evermind's Roulette album idea ( :angel: ), and decided to compile something similar with the best songs of my v2. But because of the nature of these tracks makes them very different one from each other, I decided to make each disc have its own personality and mood. I present you:

Best of Sacul's Roulette v2

I couldn't separate the CDs according to heaviness or just intensify, for I'd have needed 4 discs for that :lol So I went with a different mindset for each, one is rather joyful, bright, and leaves you with a good sensation after listening to it. The other is definitely appealing to our darker side - it's heavy, epic, angry, depressing, or just plain weird, and it's a tough emotional listen. There were a few 4.5/5 songs I had to leave out because I couldn't fit them at all and included others that grew a bit more on me and seemed more appropriate. This album isn't intended to be listened as a whole nor in one sitting, so I've made YT playlists of them so you can check them easily - if you want the files, PM me.


Disc One: Yellow & Green (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtOJTJ6kyL2E_YTfmyI87D3OxH8rWMslf)

1. Kishi Bashi - Philosophize in it! Chemicalize with it!
2. Foals - Inhaler
3. Soundgarden - Superunknown
4. Trioscapes - Blast Off
5. Steam Powered Giraffe - Brass Goggles
6. Kimbra - Come Into My Head
7. Afro Celt Sound System - Deep Channel
8. Blackmill - Let It Be (feat. Veela)
9. Alt-J - Taro
10. Lorde - Buzzcut Season
11. London Grammar - Hey Now
12. Ludovico Einaudi - Divenire (Live at Royal Albert Hall London)
13. Lechuga - Entre 2 Mundos
14. Mew - Comforting Sounds


Running Time: 1 hour 17 minutes.

Took quite some time, but finally figured out the flow - starts rather energic and intense, just to calm down at the beginning of the second half and keep growing and growing, reaching its climax on Comforting Sounds.


Disc Two: Black & Red (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtOJTJ6kyL2F1wQauXdRMVrfmLndTUqcD)

1. Anna Von Hausswolff - Discovery
2. Valravn - Krummi
3. Celldweller - Gift For You
4. Euzen - The Stage
5. Queen - Innuendo
6. Glen Hansard - Bird of Sorrow
7. Florence + the Machine - Seven Devils
8. Fire! Orchestra - Enter, Part One
9. Machine Head - A Farewell to Arms
10. The Antlers - Kettering
11. The Angelic Process - Dying in A-Minor


Running Time: 1 hour 17 minutes.

Probably my favorite disc, I'm really proud of how it turned out - it has my two favorite songs of the roulette, and the songs somehow flow into each other very well.



Well, I guess that's all, folks. Hope you find something to like on this double album :P

I haven't got a submission on the second disc at all. Quite a few of mine are in the first one though.

Did you ever listen to my bonus track?

I was about to include La Villa Strangiato in the first one, but it's a pretty well-known song around here, so it'd have been a bit pointless :P

I haven't got a submission on the second disc at all. Quite a few of mine are in the first one though.

Well, I think none of your tracks really qualified for the mood the second disc was aiming for - well, maybe that Naked & Famous song would have, but forgot about it :lol

Yes, but not enough to form a proper opinion on it. Will PM you, guys, when I have a solid point of view on your bonus songs  :tup

Hahaha I have absolutely no clue how I came in 3rd, looking back at this roulette I did pretty terrible/average most of the time, but hey I'll take it, and Lechuga seems to have catched on. :lol
