Welcome back, it's time for The Bolsters™ Roulette, v2!

This time I'm not restricting the number of participants and so everyone is welcome. The main competition will consist of 10 people, however if the number of interested parties is 11 or more there will be some qualifying rounds at the beginning to determine which 10 people make it through. If I'm not popular enough to get more than 10 people (very likely :lol), there will be no qualifying rounds.

Sign up below if you're interested in joining.

I think I'll sit this one out.  After getting 14 points in the first two rounds of your last roulette, I only got a total of 3 points in the final 5 rounds.  And those 3 points came in the last round after I had given up and sent you 6 songs to choose from.  :lol

I'm interested in participating, but I have no clue about your music tastes. Well, except that you like Taylor Swift. Also I'll wait on the rules and Banned List before I decide.

I'll have a go.............try not to make it too complicated for us fogeys to understand  :biggrin:  I see a Bolsters roulette as almost the ultimate challenge - I have very little idea on distilling your breadth of taste down to a strategy , other than perhaps "go for stuff that's different"  :lol    It might come down to a synth pop battle between me and Chad . :hat

I'm quite conflicted on this.  On the one hand, we've got a lot of compatibility in our tastes ... "SUPER" according to last.fm, and you did very well getting all the way to the finals in my 2nd Roulette.  On the other hand, when I look at some of the music you listen to recently, the bands  at the top of your last.fm stats, and what you sent after stumbling in my 3rd Roulette - man that was outside of my box - ... that suggests we are not a match.

You've got likely the most eclectic and wide ranging tastes here at DTF - it's like your a sheep in wolf's clothing - but which genres are the sheep, and which are the wolf.  Are you a prog/metal head, or do you lean towards pop/core/post?

So, I think I'm gonna accept, and fire with both barrels loaded full of prog and metal glory :2metal:  Then we'll see if that's to your liking, or if it's the stuff that Parama, Sacul, Tyrias, etc  have on that end of the musical spectrum will be more to your tastes.

:huckleberry:

I got Brent on my side already.  Ruslan, Tim, Kade... you with us?

When will be rules etc. be revealed? I'm interested. Heh, joining anyway, I have some cool shit for you yo.
The rules for the main competition won't be revealed until it actually starts, but I have some information for everyone before you start sending songs for the qualifier rounds which I will probably post later today.

I won't participate this time - too much real life stuff, and little time for roulettes. :P
Am disappoint, but I understand. :sadpanda:

I'm quite conflicted on this.  On the one hand, we've got a lot of compatibility in our tastes ... "SUPER" according to last.fm, and you did very well getting all the way to the finals in my 2nd Roulette.  On the other hand, when I look at some of the music you listen to recently, the bands  at the top of your last.fm stats, and what you sent after stumbling in my 3rd Roulette - man that was outside of my box - ... that suggests we are not a match.
Well as you mention I have a wide range of tastes, and trying to hit on all of them might have been your mistake in my first roulette. But some of my favourite albums last year were Kingdom of Rock and Dracula: Swing of Death, and my favourite so far this year is Ghostlights. So it's not like my more recent foray into synths and pop has pushed out or taken over my love for rock and metal. I have plenty of gaps you could attempt to fill if you find them.

Also Last.fm's compatability is a joke anyway, it says I have 98% compatability with Sacul. :lol

I'm not taking the piss out of you, I'm taking the piss out of Last.fm. There's some crossover which is apparent by you sending some good stuff in my roulette and my recent success yours, but we are not musically 98% compatible in any universe. :P

Alright, so here's that information I said you would want to have before sending anything. If there are any stragglers who would like to join, I'll still be accepting people signing up for a few days but in the meantime everyone can start sending their submissions for the first qualifying round. Given the number of people who signed up, there will be two qualifying rounds.


Submitting

Bonuses

Before sending anything, you may want to consider the following. While there will be no round themes here, I have added seven optional bonuses, and your songs will receive bonus points if you send something that fits. You may receive only three of these bonuses throughout the roulette, you can net just one of them per song, and you personally can not aquire any of the bonuses twice. Since you can only be awarded three of the seven, it's up to you to decide which ones you want to go for (if any). These bonuses won't be available in the qualifying rounds so if you've got a good idea or three in mind, I'd suggest holding onto them until the main competition starts.

The seven bonuses are as follows:

I'll post a few clarifications and hints regarding these before the main competition starts.


Information

My Last.fm profile can be viewed here (http://www.last.fm/user/Bolsters) for those interested in that, and my first roulette here (http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=44261.0). I don't consider my Last.fm to be 100% accurate in representing my tastes, but it may still prove useful.

Nice, I can work with this. Plenty of holes to fill.

I also have a nice idea for 3 of the bonus "themes", were I to make it past the qualifiers. Will send today probably!

18 now!  Holy shit...
I only see 16. I didn't forget anyone did I? :rollin

No, you're right.  I didn't realize you had listed the participants alphabetically - so I was looking for Evermind and Tyrias at the bottom of your list... not seeing them, I thought they still needed to be added.

Banned list + submitting.... tl:dr (for now).

Unless I'm a dumbass and I missed it: how many rounds?

And do we have to specify a certain bonus we're going for when we send a track, or will you decide if a song was applicable? Reason being, I can immediately think of multiple songs that fulfill like 3 or 4 of those categories at once, so do I have to say which one I'm going for, or is that song potentially up for any of those 3 or 4?

Well you might be a dumbass, I'm not really sure. :neverusethis: But I had not mentioned how many rounds there would be. There will be eight, or ten if you include the qualifying rounds.

And do we have to specify a certain bonus we're going for when we send a track, or will you decide if a song was applicable? Reason being, I can immediately think of multiple songs that fulfill like 3 or 4 of those categories at once, so do I have to say which one I'm going for, or is that song potentially up for any of those 3 or 4?
In cases like this, you will need to tell me which of the multiple bonuses your song qualifies for you want.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmGdSOhBx8E (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmGdSOhBx8E)

I'm not crazy about their music, but the combination of that song and the landscapes of Iceland really tickles my fancy.

would a song that has a cello throughout count as a song with orchestral/symphonic elements or do you mean like a full orchestra
It doesn't have to be a full orchestra or symphony, but my preference is for ensemble. String quartets will also make the cut, or any song with more than one orchestral instrument.

As for single instruments, I may or may not accept them for that bonus. It depends on how "important" I think the instrument is to the song - if I get a fairly normal rock song with a violin that sounds like it's just been thrown in for the sake of it, I won't award the bonus to it. On the other hand if the song seems like it was built around the violin and that the song wouldn't work all that well without the instrument, I might let it pass. But if you want to be 100% sure you get the bonus, go with ensemble.

Here's a useful tip for anyone who wishes to look up artists in my Last.fm library. Since they updated the site with a beta design there's been no easy way to look up a particular artist in someone's library, but I discovered a trick to allow you to do it.

Essentially, you just have to take the following link and change the "Dream+Theater" part to whichever band it is you'd like to check up on, using + signs in place of any spaces. :tup

Cool, glad I'm in. This will be my first roulette  ;D

Just a few quick questions, how heavy do you like your metal? What it is your view on punk/ska/reggae? I know you are a fan of The Black Mages but are you familiar with any of Nobuo Uematsu's other projects?

This is all assuming I get past the qualifiers!! I'm not planning on playing it safe though, if I do well I want it to be because I sent you something you like that you may never have been exposed to normally.

Oh, lastly, where in the world do you live?

Sorry for all the questions, still fairly new around these parts  :loser:

Oh, I also got a question. Is there a chance to get straight into the main competition after the first qualification round? Or regardless of how awesome my song is, I'll have to participate in both rounds?

My choice for this round will depend on the answer.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 - Sign up and/or send Q1 songs now
Post by: Bolsters on March 18, 2016, 02:44:25 AM
how heavy do you like your metal?
Opeth is about as heavy as I get, and even then I prefer the stuff that has more atmosphere and melody than I do their truly heavier stuff. If you're familiar with them at all: I love Ghost Reveries/Watershed/Blackwater Park, but have never been able to get into albums like Deliverance. If you aren't familiar with Opeth I may have to revisit this answer. :lol

What it is your view on punk/ska/reggae?
There were a few popular punk songs I didn't mind when I was in high school around 1998-2002 but otherwise it's a genre I haven't been able to get into and thus don't listen to. Ska and reggae even less so.

I know you are a fan of The Black Mages but are you familiar with any of Nobuo Uematsu's other projects?
I've heard some of the Earthbound Papas stuff, but I didn't really like the direction he took with that project, after The Black Mages. Other than that I'm just familiar with some of his Final Fantasy soundtracks, everything from FFIII through to FFVI in particular.

Oh, lastly, where in the world do you live?
I'm from Australia.

Oh, I also got a question. Is there a chance to get straight into the main competition after the first qualification round? Or regardless of how awesome my song is, I'll have to participate in both rounds?
Nope, to get in you will have to survive both qualifying rounds.

However, at the end of the second qualifier I will be taking into account your submissions in both rounds. If you are right on the cut line in Q2 but killed it in the first round, I'll give you the edge. But that's the only advantage you get - if you send my favourite song in the first and come last in the second, you'll still get the axe. Still, if you do really well in the first qualifier this means you may be afforded some comfort for the second one.


Edit: since I haven't mentioned it yet: It appears that 17 is going to be the final number I have decided that I will eliminate three people after the first qualifying round, and four after the second.

Ok thanks, that's all good to know. Yes, I'm a big fan of Opeth so I will use them as a guide to how heavy I will go.

I kind of agree about Earthbound Papas, but I still like some of their output.

I might not get far in this roulette but what I like about this forum is that there is a huge diversity of music that people are into. I'm just going to steer clear of Progressive Metal completely and instead go for just awesome music that I personally think has a little something for everyone, regardless of what genres are their favourite.

That's always cool to see, even as a participant. I must say I'm not as big of a risktaker in these things, so if I don't know the persons tastes too well I end up sending some prog anyway just to be safe, I did not send prog for this round though.
Usually I do an okay job of picking the right songs from an artist according to the host's tastes, but I do a shitty job of picking the right artists  :lol

I'm pretty relieved there's no way to get into the main competition after the first qualifier, I think I picked a solid song, but not a round winner. Still hoping to get that advantage though.

To be honest as I'm still new around here I'm still trying to suss out peoples tastes. The song I sent was a bit of a knee jerk reaction, I was listening to it when I decided to join. It is one of my favourite songs and I doubt many people will know it but I might take my time to pick a second qualifier (if I get through that is). This all depends on the reaction Bolsters has to my pick.

I'm going to take risks with genres outside of progressive metal though as I'm using this site to discover loads of bands as it is. I'm not going to have that much that isn't well known around here in terms of progressive metal so I will send all my other favourite shit.

Like I said, tastes seem pretty diverse around here so if I can be obsessed with progressive metal but still love reggae, ska, punk and other random genres I know there's bound to be others like me. Plus the songs I'll pick will be ones that I genuinely think everyone will find a little something they like.

Each to their own guys. Personally I am the sort of person who will judge music on it's own merits and how it sounds, as opposed to pigeonholing it because of my preconceptions of what particular genres sound like. I would never rule out anything, and assume I wouldn't like it, because of the genre it is labelled as.

If I ever do a roulette I want a wide variety of whatever you guys can throw at me. I thought the point of a roulette was to potentially discover stuff out of your comfort zone.

Also for the record I wouldn't send all punk/ska/reggae, I was using it as an example because I like a wide variety of music.

Lastly part of the reason I decided to enter Bolster's roulette is because he happily admits to loving Taylor Swift (which could be considered uncool by some), I like people who are open about what they like regardless of what others think. It made me think he would be open to whatever I chuck his way.

agreed.  I was giving examples of bands that are generally associated with the genre and with relatively larger appeal that I would have assumed someone around in the 90's might have heard of.  I wasn't trying to say they were the definition of the genre.

Awwww shucks, thanks you guys  :blush

I'll see if I can stay the duration in someone's roulette and try to send completely different genres for each round. Would be a lot of fun.

Speaking of Caravan Palace, I saw them at Boomtown festival last year, my girlfriend is a huge fan, not something I would normally go for but after seeing them live I completely got into them. I've realised there is a pattern forming as I'm going through my library looking for potential roulette songs. All the ones I'm considering are bands that put on an incredible live show and are also mainly fusing multiple genres together. Good times, could get addicted to this.

That's fine.

I've got Spotify set to Private. :ninja:

Once Sir Walrus Cauliflower has sent, I will post the first blurred image, a completely original idea that I had.

Edit: Also, I want to get through these qualifiers quickly, so I'm not going to put too much time or effort into writeups for 17 songs. A couple of sentences at most is what you're all going to get.

Number City is a cool song. Not what I would necessarily go with, even just from Descension, but it's cool. And it's one of those that's a bit creepy as to why it's cheery, given the subject matter.

That is all. I'm not in this roulette, I just wanted to comment on that.

Domino is probably the best on either album. I like Sentry the Defiant, The Hard Sell and Gravity's Union.

Last time I saw Coheed live, they were on tour with Thank You Scientist and the brass from the latter joined in for a special performance of Number City. Highlight of that show--really cool song.

Domino is great too, not sure how I'd rank that album. It's really consistent.

Conflict of interest.

Nah, I didn't see that many holes in your banned list for me to jump through. A lot of the artists that I don't always expect DTFers to have, you have, probably because you have more of an inclination to pop than most. Anyway, I think I'd run out of artists to send you after about 5 rounds.

Post by: 425 on March 19, 2016, 12:21:58 AM
If it was just a matter of you had an empty space, I might give it a shot, but I feel like when there's a qualifying round that if I do manage to make it through by sending one really good song in the qualifying round, I then get in trouble midway through when I run out of artists—so for your sake and the sake of competition, I don't want to try to compete for a spot if I feel that I'm going to underperform if I do get it.

But I will show up in this thread to comment on songs and to harass Parama as much as you want.

Honestly I think Rust and Turntail are the two best songs on the album. I burnt myself on firelight, but it is the song that got me into them.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 - Sign up and/or send Q1 songs now
Post by: Train of Naught on March 19, 2016, 01:33:27 AM
Damn, some balls sending Rust.

I don't think I'd send anything off Bloom unless there was a round where I could send 2 consecutive songs (Bloom/Marigold) That transitions is just prog heaven. I don't think Rust can live up to that, even though I really like that song. I'm pretty sure Rust is Walrus' song. I definitely think Marigold is a better standalone track than Rust so whoever sent that might just edge out the Rust sender.

Epysode is probably Chad's? I've seen Nocturnal Rites and Dream Evil in Evermind's roulette though I don't remember who sent them.

Rival Sons is mine, pretty confident about it, though this seems like a very solid round.

This is spot on.

Out of the ones still not guessed, I can see Klone - Immersion, must be Tomislav who sent it. Epysode is totally Chad, Dream Evil is probably Nelson's and Kade must've sent Nocturnal Rites after it scored big in my roulette.

I'm pretty sure Rust is Walrus' song.

I'm pretty sure about that too especially since he outright said that on the previous page.

I'm pretty sure Within Temptation will do fine. He seems to like symphonic female-fronted metal. I think he's the only person I saw who has both Diabulus in Musica and Temperance on the banned list - not counting me, that is.

I'll hold my hands up, I sent Larry and his Flask. They are pure god damn energy on stage. I saw them supporting someone else I could potentially send in this roulette and they tore the house down. I'm just hoping they come back to the UK to play some time soon.

I definitely think Marigold is a better standalone track than Rust so whoever sent that might just edge out the Rust sender.

I prefer Rust in every way, but that's just me. One of the best things about Bloom imo is that every track works very well together as an album, but also individually. Rust just has some of grooviest riffs and fun stuff to play, and some very nice vocal melodies. Something about it just gets me.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 - Q1 Listening Underway
Post by: Train of Naught on March 19, 2016, 08:51:51 AM
Totally fair dude. I mean, as to speak for myself, I got Marigold in my last roulette and really liked it(8.5/10 I think), I thought it started very abruptly but made for a pretty good single nonetheless. Bloom on the other hand, I would probably never listen to individually, not following it up with Marigold would seem weird to me.

As for Rust, love it. Bolsters has DMM on his banned list I think so he's probably not afraid to hear some djent stuff thrown in either, I really love that little breakdown after the chorus. This is one of those bands where I honestly couldn't tell what aspect is the highlight for me, everything balances out perfectly.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 - Q1 Listening Underway
Post by: Sir Walrus Cauliflower on March 19, 2016, 08:54:44 AM
Exactly. As far as I'm concerned just about every song is absolutely wonderful, Rust just happens to be my favorite. That breakdown is a big reason actually. I actually flipped a coin between rust and Turntail because I couldn't decide  :lol

Anyway, I've got a few listens in now and have been ranking things as I go along. Quite a few of these tracks proved to be growers. This is a really strong round, loads of good stuff in here, I'm actually surprised how strong this round is. Anyway, I'm 90% sure I know who two of the eliminated players will be. The third, I'm not so sure about. I've got a tough decision to make here. :(

Post by: Train of Naught on March 20, 2016, 05:27:37 AM
Can only comment on the songs I know/have listened to and they all feel like they'd do great with you. I think both Caligula's Horse songs should make it through pretty easily, even moreso since Arcane is apparently on your banned list too, still not sure which one will do better though, leaning more towards rust ATM.

That Coheed song was alright I guess, still not really into this band, and Domino the Destitute (I think that was the name) is easily my favorite from both Afterman albums.

Muse is an interesting choice, that's probably my #2 song off the album so good job on picking it  :tup not sure how it will fare with Bolsters though.

I think I checked out the Dream Evil and Nocturnal Rites songs during Evermind's roulette, I don't really remember them though so can't really comment.

I don't think my song is one of the growers, I feel like either you dig it or you don't, but hey - it could be. I doubt I'll go out but you mentioned the there's a tough choice to be made for the third elimination, so ya never know.

I absolutely adore Coheed and Cambria, I was tempted to send a song of theirs at first but didn't want to go too obvious. Please don't judge them by those songs though dude. I love The Afterman albums but if I had sent a song in this roulette it would have been one of about 30 songs off their first 4 albums before anything off Afterman!!

I don't dislike them, and unlike many, it's not just Claudio that wears on me, I've realized these guys are just not for me.

I didn't. I judged them by all of the 4 albums that I've heard  :lol at some point I gotta draw a line. I don't dislike them, and unlike many, it's not just Claudio that wears on me, I've realized these guys are just not for me. I do enjoy some bands with similar-ish vocals like TYS and Mandroid Echostar.

Fair enough, I know you had said you were going to check out their earlier albums, just wasn't sure if you had. I like TYS and ME but I only discovered them due to them being recommended for Coheed fans.

I've got to say though, it took me a LONG time for Coheed to click. I bought GA1 in 2006 after hearing Welcome Home but wasn't impressed, borrowed GA2 off a friend when that came out, still wasn't impressed. It was in 2009 when my girlfriends, best friends boyfriend was obsessed with them. He played me The Light and the Glass off their 2nd album and I started to get them. I gave GA1 another listen with the lyrics in front of me (I can picture the moment now) and I had a "Holy fuck, how did I not realise how awesome these guys are!!" epiphany moment. I've been increasingly obsessed since.

Can only comment on the songs I know/have listened to and they all feel like they'd do great with you. I think both Caligula's Horse songs should make it through pretty easily, even moreso since Arcane is apparently on your banned list too, still not sure which one will do better though, leaning more towards rust ATM.

That Coheed song was alright I guess, still not really into this band, and Domino the Destitute (I think that was the name) is easily my favorite from both Afterman albums.

Muse is an interesting choice, that's probably my #2 song off the album so good job on picking it  :tup not sure how it will fare with Bolsters though.

I think I checked out the Dream Evil and Nocturnal Rites songs during Evermind's roulette, I don't really remember them though so can't really comment.

I don't think my song is one of the growers, I feel like either you dig it or you don't, but hey - it could be. I doubt I'll go out but you mentioned the there's a tough choice to be made for the third elimination, so ya never know.

You don't know Within Temptation? I thought you were Dutch.

Also, :lol at your personal user text.

Well, it's just I thought they were kind of big in Netherlands. I talked with a local - a friend of Nem - and he said they were definitely bigger and more popular than Ayreon. Figured you would know them.

Anyway, I'm confident. No way my song is among the worst three here.

They definitely are - or at least were. Ten, fifteen years ago they were huge. And don't know what they're up to nowadays to be honest. The Dutch scene has definitely shifted a bit over time.

That Coheed song was alright I guess, still not really into this band, and Domino the Destitute (I think that was the name) is easily my favorite from both Afterman albums.

I absolutely adore Coheed and Cambria, I was tempted to send a song of theirs at first but didn't want to go too obvious. Please don't judge them by those songs though dude. I love The Afterman albums but if I had sent a song in this roulette it would have been one of about 30 songs off their first 4 albums before anything off Afterman!!

really there's any number of great songs i could've sent, because coheed has many. Time Consumer, Devil in Jersey City, Everything Evil, Delirium Trigger, In Keeping Secrets, Three Evils, The Crowing, Backend of Forever, Al the Killer, The Light & The Glass, Welcome Home, anything from The Willing Well, No World For Tomorrow, Mother Superior, The End Complete, On the Brink, The Broken, Domino, Vic, Evagria, Sentry, The Hard Sell, Gravity's Union, Colors, Ghost, Peace to the Mountain

but anyways i went with the weird out-of-place track on only maybe their third or fourth best album

So. Who thinks they're being eliminated? :D
it's me

So I've been checking out the competition and there is a bit of a trend (which my song is not part of  :lol) but also a handful that don't follow the trend. I've gotta say there is some really stella stuff here. My personal faves are easily Marigold by Caligula's Horse (Rust is really good too) and You Want To by Rival Sons.

Caligula's Horse have been on my radar for a while and I've heard a lot of good things but after hearing the two picks on here I think I will be picking up Bloom soon (love that artwork too).

Okay, here are the results. All of the songs have been ranked from my favourite to least favourite, so you should have a good idea of how much I liked your song compared to the others. Although as I said this was a strong round and there weren't any truly bad songs here. Unfortunately, I have to stick to my guns and eliminate three of you, and another four in the next round. :omg:


Standing On Solid Ground
You have impressed enough this round to be in the top 10. You will have a slight advantage in the second qualifier under certain circumstances.

splent - M83 - Ok Pal

Evermind - Within Temptation - See Who I Am

jingle.chad - Epysode - Forgotten Symphony

wolfking - Nocturnal Rites - Still Alive

Elite - Caligula's Horse - Marigold

Sir Walrus Cauliflower - Caligula's Horse - Rust

senecadawg2 - Dream Evil - Chasing the Dragon

Parama - Coheed and Cambria - Number City

Shadow Ninja 2.0 - Angels & Airwaves - Heaven

bl5150 - Tak Matsumoto Group - King For A Day


On The Thin Ice
Your song was good enough to get through to the second qualifier and avoid elimination, but you weren't in the top 10, so you'll need to impress to make it past the next round.

Tomislav95 - Klone - Immersion

Tyrias - Muse - Butterflies and Hurricanes

Scorpion - Ghost Ship Octavius - Pendulum

Train of Naught - Rival Sons - You Want To


Fallen Through
The ice broke under your feet, you fell in and drowned - you have been eliminated from the roulette.

Nekov - Amason - Älgen

twosuitsluke - Larry and his Flask - Ready Your Roomates

Fluffy Lothario - Wildbirds & Peacedrums - The Offbeat



Alright, that's that. Those of you who made it through, start sending your songs for the second qualifying round.

Post by: Evermind on March 21, 2016, 10:32:45 PM
Haha, Larry and his Flask didn't make it.

Good to see Chad, Kade and Brent are through too.

So, now that I've got the second place in this round and considering I won your first roulette, I'll have to totally shit the bed in order to get eliminated, and that isn't happening. I think.

Any artist that has already been sent is automatically banned, even if I didn't like it. The qualifying rounds most definitely count towards this. So, one.

The banned artists list post has a section for things banned during the roulette, which I will update now.

Well there is an instrumental bonus category which I said I would post some tips on. If you don't want to hold on to the song in question for that bonus, I don't have a problem posting a sneak peek now:

Quote from: Future Bolsters
I think the two things that detract from instrumentals the most for me are firstly: If the song is predominently self-indulgent wankery, it's probably not going to appeal to me all that much. Secondly, I tend not to like it when an instrumental sounds like it should have vocals but doesn't.

You know what, I don't think there's any reason to hold off on posting this until the end of the second qualifying round. So here are the tips & guidelines I wrote for the bonus categories to perhaps help some of you make the right choices when going for them.

As always, important information will be listed in the OP, so if you need to find this post later just look there.

Good to see I managed to be the only one not on Spotify again  :hat  ;D

This time I'm sending a band that never fails to pop up in roulettes these days - might as well get it out the way :lol

Oh fuck off!  I wanted to send them.

First song that came to my mind after I read:

but it's probably worth noting that I have a soft spot for Celtic stuff.

And considering last round I think Bolsters will like it :tup

Maybe it's playing on a different device, your phone or something? If that's the case click the volume icon to change the device to whatever you're using.

I'm having weird issues with Spotify as of lately too though so it may not be a coincidence. For me Spotify doesn't even open anymore (error 18), which means it's already running, but it still said that after I rebooted the PC so it makes no sense.

Is the volume turned up? :neverusethis:

The only thing I can think of is maybe it's set to stream to another device. Spotify has a connect feature and can stream to compatible devices. If you have such a device on your network (such as your phone) it could be streaming to that instead of playing on the computer. Next to the volume control it should say Devices Available, or nothing at all. If it has something other than that written there, click it and select your computer.

Edit: despite being ninja'd I don't think this is possible anyway, since I just remembered that it's a premium feature.

I crashed and burned but I stand by my choice. I did send Larry and his Flask without thinking about it too much because I love them so much. To be fair seeing them live was what made me love them.

I think next time I'll try and pick my song a bit more carefully (probably not though). I think I might possibly have a bit of a skewed view on what people want out of a roulette though, is it to discover new music of any genre from people who's tastes (progressive metal) cross over with theirs or to kind of fill in the blanks (in their banned list), as it were, with popular bands on this forum?

All said and done though this roulette had some great music in the first qualifier (particularly Caligula's Horse) that I will be checking.

Next one I enter, I'll either start more on the metal and of the spectrum, or send something really out there. It's 50/50. Good luck to all the guys still in, I'll be following along anyway.

I think different people have different expectations when running a roulette. I go in just wanting to discover new music to enjoy, whether it's something similar to what I already like that I have missed, or it's something I've overlooked that gets brought to my attention, or being exposed to something I wouldn't look for or think I would like. I do appreciate that you sent me something out of my comfort zone and tried to expose me to something I wouldn't normally look for, but the caveat to this approach is that it carries a higher risk. It just didn't pay off in this one instance, unfortunately.

I think that is how I would approach a roulette. I know what I sent was high risk and I think I will continue to do so. I'm not in it to win it, just to expose people to great music that could easily be missed due to the country you live in or popularity of said band.

There has been an incredible ska/punk scene in the UK over the last 10 years or more but it's all fairly underground and most people are unaware of it. Some quality bands though.

Might host a roulette later this year just to see what inspired tunes I'd receive.

1. I'll be happy to have you in my roulette (probably starts somewhere after upcoming summer), I've proven to be open to experimental and out of the ordinary stuff to a certain extent, it has paid off sometimes but also failed quite a bit. There's likely going to be a qualification round for that one aswell though.

2. If you want to run a roulette yourself you're better off signing up earlier than later, the current waiting list would take about 5-6 months I'd guess, until the person on bottom of the list is up.

Now that I've had a chance to read thru all the writeups and retort (other than Brent beating me to the punch on the band in question)...

Oh, told ya Chad.

Indeed you did.  Glad you enjoyed Dave.  Gonna take a different approach this round though.  And should I make it through to the main competition, I'm going to personally challenge myself to hit all 'bonus' themes - though I know there's only 3 (?) bonus points available.

I just realized Green Carnation isn't banned and we can send one song without any length limit in the main competition.

Did I miss this 'rule' somewhere?  If so Ruslan, hands off!  You know what I'm sending - I already checked that the band is not banned.  And this time, I mean it... I'm sending it.

You can do that if you want, but I'd recommend picking out which three you want the bonus points from because.....reasons. :neverusethis:

I guess you did. But I should tell you all that the longer the song is the less likely I am going to be to absorb it in the short time I will have to listen to it. I also won't be able to listen to it as many times as I would a shorter song. And if I'm being honest, I would actually prefer if no one sent anything longer than the 12 minute limit - I just wanted the option to be there.

I have several possibilities. The more I review my playlists and music, the better I feel about this roulette. But I don't want to get ahead of myself. Last time I felt this way Sacul threw a monkey wrench at me.

Larry and his Flask were my fail  :lol

With no knowledge of Bolsters tastes other than the fact he likes Taylor Swift and The Black Mages I sent a song I love regardless.

It was a very unwise choice as it didn't get me far. They are one of the best live bands I have ever seen though. They brought an energy to the stage unlike any other. It's not often you have a band where all 6 members are drawing your eye to them on stage and playing with passion and energy.........so much energy it was infectious.

For a start the drummer played the whole show stood up and the double bass player was throwing shapes with said double bass like it was inflatable or something. He was playing the thing in the pit for a good portion of the show!! Bloody incredible band. Don't think many of you guys would really appreciate them though.

I just listened to the song you sent.

It's fun, but I think it's completely fair to say it has a big chance of losing to the other songs on here. I have a handful of these kind of songs (not this genre, but kind of the same fun feel) but never use them in roulettes. As a host I think this kind of thing is just very hard to rate, how do you compare this song to Caligula's Horse? I could definintely see myself really liking this but it would never win a round, you know, it's hard to explain the reasoning behind it.

But in the end, I sent hard rock thinking it would be alright, and it ended up not getting me very far either  :lol assuming I need a miracle to make it past the second Q.

Here is an example of them live, I personally love the energy. When I saw them they were supporting Frank Turner, I love it when a support band can get you involved and invested when you know none of their songs. Sign of a great band in my opinion.

I personally don't find it that hard to rate songs like these compared to others. I just rate on how much I enjoy them for what they're supposed to achieve, so you could get a high grade from me with a Symphonic Metal, Post Rock, Synth Pop or Folk song (just to give a few examples), as long as they achieve what they set out to do (and I have to like that thing as well, sending a Noise track is probably not gonna end all that well).

Regarding Larry and His Flask, I think I'd enjoy the hell out of them live but they don't do that much for me as a studio band. Might just be my current mood, it's afternoon here and I usually hate music in general for a few hours after lunch :lol.

To be fair if I received Larry and his Flask (without ever hearing them) and Caligula's Horse in a roulette I would go for Caligula's Horse everytime I think. I know I'm biased towards LahF as their live performance made me fall in love with them (which you obviously don't get from a studio rendition of a song). I really should have done my homework if I wanted to progress in this roulette lol.

I was listening to it at the time I decided to enter the roulette and as a knee jerk reaction just thought "Larry and his Flask are amazing, everyone will love this, I'm going to win the roulette!!!!!"

Regarding Larry and His Flask, I think I'd enjoy the hell out of them live but they don't do that much for me as a studio band.

Basically I think you are spot on. Live they are amazing, unfortunately I let my personal experience seeing this band live get in the way of looking at the song objectively through the eyes (or ears) of someone who has no prior knowledge of this band. You live and learn  :lol

That's one of the songs from the new album that was released as a single, right? I remember thinking one of the two was okay but didn't like the other, not sure which one is which though. :lol I'd probably just have rejected either of them anyway since I listened to them not all that long ago.

Havoc is the one everyone hates. I like it alright but it's not great, one of the other singles, Pages, was very strong IMO, but it sure as hell isn't close to Abyss, great choice by Elite, one of my favorites, if not favorite off Isolate.

Isolate is a really strong album overall and my favourite by them (with their debut not far behind). I considered holding on to CM so I could send a longer song (Architect of Fortune, Ultimate Sacrifice, Glory of the Empire, The 1st Chapter) later on in the roulette, but I figured Abyss would do well enough to get me into the main competition before someone else sends them.

So there, black on white, I sent that track indeed.

I was deciding between Mark of the Triangle and Misled. I figured he might not like any of these two too much, but with my good score in the first round, my victory in the first installment and people sending bands like Lechuga I think I've got more than a decent shot at getting through.

I think you're making the Lechuga song out to be worse than it is to be honest, it's quite different for sure, but Bolsters does like the things David Maxim Micic puts out if I recall correctly. Lechuga worked together with DMM and has some elements that remind me of him very much, so I don't think it's that much of a long shot at all. I guess we'll see once results are in though.

Ditto... Wasted a "9" in Evermind's, and now below the cut line.  And I can totally see BBaBH not hitting the mark with Bolsters.  I hadn't even considered them - it was more of a 'rage' submission in retaliation to you beating me to the punch with Dynazty.  Though, if we're both at the bottom, that wouldn't have helped me anyway!   :lol

You were spot on. 12:03am Monday morning now, but I haven't got shit for you.

I was considering posting the rules early instead of waiting until after the Q2 results were posted, so I'll do that before I go to bed.

Rules

Rather than points, players will be awarded various stars based on their performance. There's no head-to-head anymore - this time I will rank all of the songs I receive in a round, and the stars will be awarded based on where your song ranks. The four stars from last time will return but there are a couple of new stars aswell.

There are now seven additional bonus stars, which are awarded to any song that meets their criteria. You may receive only three of these bonuses throughout the roulette, you can net just one of them per song, and you personally can not aquire any of the bonuses twice. Since you can only be awarded three of the seven, it's up to you to decide which ones you want to go for (if any). The bonus stars are awarded along with any other stars your song qualifies for based on ranking. If you send a song that meets the requirements for multiple bonus stars, you must tell me which star you would like to be awarded for the song. To avoid any confusion, if you intend to obtain a bonus star for your song, tell me when you send it, even if the song in question is only eligible for one bonus. If you don't do this and I receive something that fits a bonus, I may ask you if you would like a bonus star for the song...but I am more likely to just not award you any bonuses for it at all. You've been warned.

The seven bonus stars are as follows:

And finally, two last stars...


Variability

In an attempt to make the bonus star system a little more interesting, I have decided to take a rather unusual approach to assigning their point values. Instead of having each of the stars being worth the same (that's too boring!), the seven stars will instead have a variable value. What does that mean? It means that the value of each star is determined by the number of people who have aquired it. So, all of the bonus stars will start out at the same value, but as more people collect any particular star, the number of points it is worth will begin to decrease. :eek

In the event that people get eliminated from the roulette for receiving three coal stars, any bonus stars they collected before being booted will no longer count towards this. So if someone with some bonus stars gets eliminated, the stars they had will go back up in value for everyone still in the game.

I'm not complaining. It's cool to see the stars ranking system making its glorious return. I hoped we'll do rating system rather than ranking but hey, I'll live with it.

I don't think I would like the stack/ranking method as much as rating. Whenever I do kinda well in roulettes it's with consistent scores, I hardly ever win rounds.

That being said, I'll probably be thrown out of this roulette in a couple hours so I ain't complaining  :lol

Well, I won four rounds out of seven in his first roulette, and one other roulette I won (Buddyhunter's) was played with the ranking method too, so I guess I have a decent chance in this. A lot of songs I prepared could be round winners I think. In fact, I just realized how much I'm looking forward to play in this one. Been quite a long time since I played in the roulette where the host tastes are quite similar with my own. I just hope I'm not eliminated, because that would be a waste. Evergrey are a solid band and I love the song, and even if Dave doesn't like it, getting kicked because of one fuck up - and Mark of the Triangle isn't a fuck up by any means - when I nailed it with my performance most of the time in the past (the latest being a week ago in first qualifier) is just wrong.

I'm all for mixing it up with different or innovative roulette systems.  This one looks especially challenging in that - although the ranking is fairly straightforward, the scoring system is an unknown at best, and a moving target with the bonus themes. 

There is some merit to the KISS principle.

All I've really done is take the standard ranking system that tons of people have used and put two spins on it - bonuses that fluctuate based on popularity, and a bonus for the best song in each category. Sure there are a lot of stars but seven of them are functionally identical, they are just separate so that they can eventually have different values.

I guess I should just scrap the v3 system now since it's more complicated and intricate than this is, besides also being a somewhat bizarre concept. :\

i personally wouldn't call it repetitive since part of the joy of the track is listening in on all the different subtleties, and it's just two verses, two choruses, and the outro (which you liked, which would be the most likely part to call repetitive so i'm confused ??? ) but to be fair i like repetitive music in a sense anyways so

i kinda figured you'd at least like it but also figured probably not as strongly as i do, seriously close to calling it a 10/10 song  :lol

No, don't change it.  It *looks* more complicated than a standard roulette ON PAPER, but in practice, I'm sure people will get the hang of it.  I already identified right away a particular strategy that I think needs to be employed to maximize bonus points.  It's your roulette, you set the framework - fuck the haters.... though I don't think anyone was really hating, just fun banter about the complexity.  At a high level, you stack rank, and earn bonus points for using themes.  Pretty simple... but the devil is in the details.  I'm sure plenty of questions will come up along the way - hell, idiots like me even miss things that are pretty explicit (ie, allowed to send one >12 minute song). 

Haha - jingle and I were pretty convinced we were gawn.   I had started studying up for the next roulette on my list  :lol

Yeah... proof that when you over-think things, you get "slaughtered"   ;) :P  Shut Up and Rock was a spur of the moment 'rage submission' for Brent beating me to Dynazty.  And lookie there, we finish 1-2!

Oh, and I'm still gonna cover all 7 themes, and put all of you punks to shame while winning this thing.

Looks like I have to stick with my 'fuck it, I ain't got time for this shit' approach.

Post by: Bolsters on March 28, 2016, 05:29:32 AM
Fuck.  Well, I guess having a decent song the first time didn't mean fucking shit, whatever then.  Wasn't really keen on the star thing anyway.  Will still follow, good luck everyone.
I did mention the specifics, but essentially you had to be right on the cut line for the advantage to do you any good. You were too far below the line for it to matter. :-*

No, don't change it.  It *looks* more complicated than a standard roulette ON PAPER, but in practice, I'm sure people will get the hang of it.  I already identified right away a particular strategy that I think needs to be employed to maximize bonus points.  It's your roulette, you set the framework - fuck the haters.... though I don't think anyone was really hating, just fun banter about the complexity.  At a high level, you stack rank, and earn bonus points for using themes.  Pretty simple... but the devil is in the details.  I'm sure plenty of questions will come up along the way - hell, idiots like me even miss things that are pretty explicit (ie, allowed to send one >12 minute song). 
I had no intention of changing this one, but I am rethinking the v3. It was pretty ambitious and it was doubtful I would ever put it all together anyway. Maybe now I just won't bother, it was going to be a great deal of effort to create, I'd hate to do it and then everyone is just going to react with "What the fuck is this shit, Bolsters?!" and only four people actually want to play it. :lol

As for strategies in this one, I figured out a couple after I put it all together, it'll be interesting to see if you came up with one of those or a different one...and whether anyone else will employ the same strategies.

I have no problem with the approach of this roulette whatsoever. Actually, when signing up for this, I expected something more ambitious  :lol this is really nothing too crazy compared to the v1. It'll be the first time playing in a stack-rank roulette for me, and as it turns out so far, it won't be serving me well, I might just go out in a not-so-glorious fashion after the first 3 rounds.  :lol

I like to think the song I just sent is a strategy sorta-kinda, but really I just want the bonus points and if I have songs I would've sent regardless of the themes I certainly won't hold on to them.

Just a reminder that I would like to be told when you expect a bonus star for your song (and which one, of course). I'm very likely to give you nothing if you don't. :D

I was fourth highest in the first qualifier (if they were even ranked), and no where near the 'on thin ice' category.  Parama and Cauliflower were also in the top tier yet all three of us get knocked out, obviously no advantage there.  Yet Train of Naught was on thin ice in Q1 and gets in 'just scraping through' in Q2????? WTF?

Because I like ToN's song this round more than any of the four songs ranked underneath it. I liked it more than the one Sir Walrus Cauliflower sent, 100%, it wasn't a difficult decision. That's why ToN got through. The advantage was gaining some favour if I couldn't decide who to cut out of two people on the cut line.

I'm doing all I can to keep it alive. That's something I always appreciate people doing in my roulette thread, so I'm trying to do the same.

And maybe I won't cockblock anyone in this round, might as well give the person a chance to send this song first. All bets are off for the second round though.

Yeah  not going to lie, I was genuinely worried. The fact that the song grow on him was lucky on my part. I sent that bad because I noticed he liked IQ…

Onya splent.  You realise by now of course that you're first roulette host wasn't that nasty after all , right?  ;D

Haha nope. I think I'm starting to grasp this roulette thing a bit more. I hope to do at least as good as I did with Tom Bombadil's (2nd)...

I haven't done enough of these to cockblock anyone. I need to research more. Truth be told this is the first one I'm actually "researching" and looking at past ones, listening to songs that he liked/didn't like, instead of just saying "Oh I did good here's the next one" :lol I guess so far it's paying off :lol

I'm also getting my roulette ready even though I'm still like 3rd on the list. I'm going back and forth on themes (whether to use them or not) and have NO idea how I'm going to score. Since it's my first I want to be creative and fair but not overly complicated... I'm also unsure if I want to do qualifying rounds... that just seems pointless (no offense to any who do it, you have a system, I have mine)... I'd rather just have eliminations at certain points and possibly increase round numbers to accommodate numbers.

I would like to know as well because like a couple of people in this roulette I intend on sending at least one song that fits within each category.

Can we send more then one song for the same category, and in the end you end up counting the better one?
No. Whichever song was awarded the star "keeps" the star. Even if you send another song for that category that is better, the star will stay attached to the first song. However if you for example have two songs in mind that could fit the ruby star you don't have to send whichever you think is better first - I'll only give you the star when you explicitly ask for it.

You choose when you receive the bonuses and for which songs, so it's up to you to choose wisely.

and what happens if I send songs for more than 3 stars?
Nothing, they will just be considered to be normal songs because you already have 3 bonus stars.

Kind of complicated, I know, but I quite like the star idea. Interesting set up.

My only question for now: I know that the stars point values are going to shift as we continue, but for starters at least--how does the scoring for the Bronze (I think it was??)/Begrudging star work? Is that meant to be like half as many points as a Gold or Silver?

I'll send within the hour.

It's worth "less". :P What I will say however is that those first five stars are all listed in order of most valuable to least valuable, so of those five stars, bronze is worth the least number of points.

I'm color blind and can't distinguish between any of them.

Aquamarine*2

The aquamarine star () is awarded to any song driven primarily by synths, pop music, or to any song that is electronic

iirc there's more than one type of colourblind. People that can't see colours at all, but also people that can't distinguish between two similar colours (like blue/green or orange/yellow), that's why I asked.

Yeah I wasn't clear... I got that those two were the same. I just meant that I can't distinguish between those two and any of the others.

iirc there's more than one type of colourblind. People that can't see colours at all, but also people that can't distinguish between two similar colours (like blue/green or orange/yellow), that's why I asked.

This is me. So, for example--Diamond, Silver, Pearl all blur together. Meaning that if I get one of them, I get the point values for all of them.

(http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o669/bolsters/Roulette2/star-aquamarine.png~original) Synth/Electronic: This one is a bit more broad since I didn't want a purely electronic category that only one or two people would exploit and get some easy high-valued stars from. On the synth side of things I will accept rock songs containing guitar, but the primary instrument must be a synth. Rush's mid-80's output is a good example, as is a lot of Van Halen stuff. I'm also accepting pop music here aswell but only if it is synth-driven; guitar-driven pop songs won't be eligible. On the electronic side a couple of tips: I find a lot of electronic music to be quite repetitive and I'm not fond of that, you'll do better to send songs with some variation in them. I'm a stickler for good production in general but especially so when it comes to electronica. Finally, I do like instrumental stuff but my favourite electronic albums generally feature vocals to some extent.

I'm not colorblind as far as I know, but I have trouble distinguishing diamond, silver and pearl stars too. I can see the diamond one if I try hard enough, but the latter two are very similar. Still, it's going to be obvious when the silver or pearl star is awarded.

They look nothing alike to me. Perhaps your screen's contrast/brightness settings make them look more similar to you.

Yes.

As for results, they will more than likely be posted tomorrow. I'm still having a hard time deciding where a couple of these songs will rank, one of the songs I still haven't even got a grasp on at all yet and so it's been sitting firmly at the bottom of the ranking - I like to give the songs I like the least more listens though so they have a better chance to grow on me, but I can't see this particular song moving up at all.

I'm also putting a lot of thought into where the pink star cutoff will be. On one hand I want to be a little more generous with them than I was in my first roulette, but I don't want to be handing out five of them every round either. The way I choose to award the pink stars this round is important as I need to be consistant about how I award them throughout the roulette, and how I do so here will define how they are awarded for the remainder. Anyway, one or two of you will probably have rather positive writeups but no pink stars, I'm not just going to hand them out to everything I like, it matters to what degree I like something.

I would be surprised if someting as beautiful as Gallowbraid get coal star :-\ especially if Bolsters like Caladan Brood.
I realised that as much as most of black metal sounds awful due to it's production, atmospheric black metal is, to me, among most beautiful genres.

If Alcest is any indication of what atmospheric black metal sounds like I bet I'll like Gallowbraid aswell. What I tend to love most about this type of music is when they blend in some acoustic stuff.

Gallowbraid is basically 100% Agalloch worship, only not as good, imo.

Also dammit, I just had a song play on shuffle that would have probably been perfect for sending in this roulette. Oh well.

This is true. Alcest is more shoe gazey, and more recently not very black metal-influenced at all, while Gallowbraid is more folky. Both are really good, I think, but I wouldn't guarantee that fans of one would enjoy the other.

Scoreboard
(http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o669/bolsters/Roulette2/score01.png~original)



Okay, so that's the end of round 1. Brent walks away with the first diamond star of the roulette whilst Chad gets the first gold star. Train and splent take the first silver stars and also the first two bonus stars, both aquamarine. I decided where I wanted to draw the line regarding pink stars for the roulette, and Shadow Ninja, Ruslan, and seneca's songs all made the cut. Tyrias and Tom will have to walk away with nothing, except perhaps a better idea of what to send next. Unfortunately the runner-up of my first roulette really missed the mark and so the other Rich has to take the first coal star of the roulette - hopefully his last? :justjen

Start sending me your round 2 submissions immediately.

Not bad, not bad. Sadly I don't think there's brass as prominent as in this song on the EP, if at all. I really like it though, one of my favorite releases of the year so far. My favorite Lemaitre release is "Relativity 3".

I'll send in a couple hours probably, first time in a long time where I don't have my song figured out before results are up :lol

I'm not sure how nordic folk is differentiated from any other folk. I wouldn't consider folk in general to be world music but I don't really know how the nordic variety differentiates stylistically. The answer depends upon how significant the difference is. But I'm leaning towards no.

As for polka, I'm leaning towards allowing that.

Okay, so that's the end of round 2. The rankings were a bit mixed around this time compared to last, so no one is really taking off too far ahead yet. The first pearl star is awarded, in the aquamarine category, and is currently being held by Train.

Start sending me your round 3 submissions yesterday.

Awesome! :lol Yea I should've thought about it longer, though in all honesty you probably would've gotten Deadly Circus Fire from me in the end anyway, I actually thought the middle section would be my downfall as I could see people feeling it's misplaced.

Since the coal stars don't hold any direct penalties to the scores I might even have done better than most of the pink star people this round :lol depending on how much that pearl star is worth.

Will send soon, I'm more confident about this one.

I'm way ahead of you, I already just sent my second coal star to Bolsters!

Hope he doesn't reject it, otherwise I might have to send something that isn't coal star worthy.

I'll probably send in 12h from now, won't rush it. Listening to those songs that got best stars could be good, maybe I'll like them and also to figure Bolsters' taste better (I'm still not sure about what you may like, 4 rounds in).

Aquamarine is also for electronica, so it would have qualified.

Diamond - 90 points
Gold - 65 points
Silver - 40 points

Pearl - 55 points

Totally fair assessment on mine. I'll gladly take a Pink star for that one.

Going big this time - if you'll allow it ... and trust me, you want to allow it.  Ruslan and Jon would concur (and Rich I think too).

Sending in a few minutes, just need to decide if I want the bonus or not.

I wouldn't dare. I don't even praise it as much as most TMV fans do but I think the chorus is one of the best they've done. If I could somehow send the first two chapters and the second to last chapter without completely ruining the song I might've.

And to be honest I never thought The Mars Volta were roulette material anyway.

I love Frances, though I would never doubt anyone not liking it, I love the extended jams but they seem to really turn off people. That said, my favorite song on the album and favorite TMV song is L'Via L'Viaquez and I would like it even more without the outro.

De-loused is stellar, really impressive stuff seeing it's their first full length studio album. I can't see it passing Frances in my rankings but the #2 spot is pretty much set in stone.

Not fucking bad!

Don't mind admitting this is mine, since a few of you already got it from me in prior roulette's.

I have completed my first listen. First impressions and all, so subject to change...but at the moment I feel that this is easily the weakest of the five rounds I've received thus far.

I can only see Chad's song and mine, but what the hell:

Arena - Spurred Horses
Savory Bandit - Hanged by Earrings
Guns as Garments - Yo Yo Girl Stand By Me (going with Splent on this one :lol )
John Mitchell - Blue (I wanted to write "Blur" first but the last letter is obviously "e". I'm also reasonably sure it's not John Mitchell from Lonely Robot because he doesn't have any solo albums as far as I know.)
The Doors - Solid Hobo
Dimension Act - Drawing the Lines of Mortal Existence
God Is An Astronaut - Getting A Star
The Dear Hunter - Waves
Anthriel - Distorted Lights (let's see if I can squeeze Anthriel in every round)

The last song is mine and that should give you a rather good hint about the band. Oh, and I'm still rather confident about my song.

Next week is a salary week... maybe I'll be able to find Act III or IV in the local record store. Not holding my breath for it though.

Bolsters warned me TDH left a bad impression on him and I still went through with it :lol silly me, I've probably gone too far this time. I still stick by my "this band has something for everyone" statement though, but because of my poort judgement in Bolsters' taste in past rounds I think I should be less confident in this song than I am right now.

Crap... I thought After Forever would've made the banned list.   Cry With A Smile.

I was going to guess the second to last to be Anubis, but I don't think the song title fits anything.  I certainly hope it's John Mitchell, not Joni Mitchell.   If it's the latter ... :o  I would've guessed the second one to be Saxon if Tim was playing here - and if Spencer hadn't already admitted it was his.

No reason I guess.  I just finished reading the Neil Young writeups, and Joni is another 'out-there' Canadian singer-songwriter that I consider in the same class as Young.  But, this isn't Ruslan's roulette, so if it is Joni, it might do just fine here.

I was going to do writeups tonight, but after listening to the songs again just now I found myself making quite a few changes to the ranking, even this far into the round. I also still haven't settled on who will be getting the coal star this time. So, I'm going to give these another listen tomorrow and hopefully the rankings will feel finalised, at which point I'll start typing up the results.

It's a great piece, but not something I would ever send in a roulette.

Also, I think I prefer the choral transcription of it, but that might just be because I've actually had the ability to perform that one, that raises my appreciation for pretty much any kind of music.

I've sung it too and it's just as chilling.

It's probably one of those that's either going to garner me a diamond star or a coal star. I hope it's the former and not the latter. I was trying to decide what to send and for some reason this popped up and I was just sucked into listening to the whole thing and I was in tears at the climax.

Glad to get away with that - I try to get out of my comfort zone (into areas of interest to the host and me not so much) at least once where applicable and that's a decent result. I had misgivings as soon as I sent it and I probably wasted my star a bit given my catalogue of instrumentals , but happy nonetheless.

And Ruslan cock blocked my next round submission with the #1 song , so still feeling "in the groove"  ;D

I'm glad I stuck by it, I was slightly anxiously awaiting results since you warned me and since you said this was the worst round juding by first impressions, but I was also secretly confident because I love every song on this album.  Waves is definitely not an anomoly, maybe you heard some of the heavier songs when you tried this band, and I definitely can't describe this album in a few words, but I think you'll like it.

It's not going too bad for me, just need to make sure I don't get 3 coal stars :lol will send soon.

Yeah, I saw this round is more diverse than usual and thought "nice, my symphonic metal song will definitely score big". I think Brent is in the lead and I'm in the second place.

Chad... if you're still intending to kick my ass, now is a good time to begin, or else you may end up being too late. :biggrin:
It's a blasphemy to rank this Dimension Act song this low though.

Glad I could introduce you to some good classical music. I see how you can hear it as repetitive. The version I sent you was on the slower side (it is adagio after all) but a faster version would've ruined the mood of the piece. Had to go with Lenny's interpretation.

I'll send you something tonight (well tomorrow). Debating between some of the same songs I was debating sending you this past round :lol

Well, I can live with a pink star, although that's probably the worst score/ranking I ever got in a roulette with this song.

At least I got the symphonic pearl star, that's a nice plus I guess. Now here's to hoping people focus on other bonus stars where it's easier to get pearl.

I'm glad you liked the song :tup yes, electronic/trip-hop elements are usually more prominent in their music and actually I was going to send their other song for synth/electronic star but went with Distorted Angels instead.

Also, it's funny, I didn't expect results so early because I forgot time zone difference between us is 8 hours :lol

I would... but if there isn't 2 others in that category, then there's no additional "pearl" bonus, so what's the point?  Of course I'm going on the assumption that there is value in the pearl star.  But, since we're all Col Clink here, maybe I will send something worldly.

The thing that irks me more than anything is that I'm 2nd in both of the categories I have bonuses in. Just like I've been 2nd in the highest roulette place I've been so far. Too many 2nds. The one time I'm first? During a qualification round that doesn't count. :lol

Right... but does the "pearl" star for ranking 1st in a given category come with any additional point(s)?  I don't recall knowing definitively if that's the case, or if it's just a star for pride or ego.

Basically, this the scoring systems is a roulette-within-a-roulette - no one knows where they're going to land until it's all over.  We can guess and probably be directionally correct, but there's no knowing until it's all over but the crying.

Alright judges, before I send, I've got a question... how much attention are you willing to spare for each song now there's only three of us? I've got a very complex song, power metal, progressive metal, orchestra, lots of overlaying vocals, harmonies, the storyline, lots of subtle textures and changes of pace, 14+ minutes long too. But it really requires multiple listens (and I mean not 4-5 listens, I mean 10+ listens) to take everything into account. At least that's how it was for me.

Just be honest here, if you ain't gonna bother, I'm going with something much shorter and accessible.

The scoreboard is looking a bit mixed up but Ruslan manages to become the first person to be awarded a second diamond star...but hopefully (for the rest of you) he doesn't run away with the rest of them like he did the gold stars in my previous roulette. In other news Brent becomes the first person to lock in all three of his bonus stars.

Start sending me round 5 songs as soon as you can be bothered to.

I noticed a lack of a certain band in the banned list so I'm waiting for a PM response, but I'll be sending soon.

1/2 way thru, and here's my best guess at the standings:

Evermind
Tyrias
Brent (I'm assuming that 1 gold > 2 silver)
Splent
Train of Naught (assuming that 1 silver > 2 pink)
Me / Shadow Ninja
Tomislav
Elite
Seneca

Even if 2 pink > 1 silver, I'm still in 5th place, and virtually no chance to win this with my current attempts to send the "best" song I can, so I'm going to spend the next four rounds and get all 7 themes in.

Will send shortly.

You defintely have a shot at winning actually, but you'll need one or two diamond and/or gold stars to do it.

As for your guess at the standings...I'm not sure you are taking the bonus stars into account, so you're off in more than a few places.

They aren't.

That would be coal :neverusethis:

In all seriousness, I think the bronze and theme stars are of the least actual value.  They're earned just for submitting something.  Here's my hypothesis:

Diamond
Gold
Pearl
Silver
Pink
Themed / Bronze

Pearl/Silver could be reversed, but this seems to make the most sense to me.  Who knows what the spread of "points" is between them though?  We'll find out when it's all over I guess.

Why are we even bothering guessing? He's not gonna tell...

Because it's (http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o669/bolsters/Roulette/tardstar-emot.png~original)

I'm still a little disappointed. I'm wondering if I sent a different song by FTP that it would have gone a different way for me (then again, it could have been worse... I was basing it on repetitiveness and different sounding) ... but this was the most different and most quirky of the three of four I was debating between.

If you aren't familiar with them, I do recommend checking them out, because they are one of my favorite groups in mainstream alt-pop right now.

Post by: Evermind on April 16, 2016, 09:59:25 AM
Evermind - Scorpions - Humanity
Two diamond stars in a row...has your second conquest begun? Perhaps it has.

Perhaps it indeed has! I certainly hope so. Glad you liked the song.

I'll excuse the ending as you suggested since you mentioned that this was a concept album, so I'm guessing it will make sense when I listen to the album.

It won't, but I already got the diamond star for the song, so who cares. :lol The album is killer though, I definitely recommend it.

Regarding Border Reiver, well, this makes sense. I didn't really know you favor celtic influence and not strongly opposed to the country style at the time (otherwise I'd probably sent the title track from Privateering), and I was biased because Dream of the Drowned Submariner is probably my favourite Knopfler solo song. Border Reiver is my second favourite from Get Lucky though, my favourite song being So Far From the Clyde. I'm happy for Tomislav scoring a silver star with this song - especially since he didn't get to beat me in this round. Otherwise I would've been pissed off. :D

I definitely liked Mattador - Tired more than you (I rated it 9.5 and this is one of those ratings I'm sure about), but I can't complain about it. I just need someone to send another inferior ballad. Maybe Chad will send Fly to the Angels while he's at it. I could really use this pearl star.

Shadow Ninja 2.0 - Landon Tewers - Ma and Pa
  • When you first sent this, I thought the band name was a piss-take of "London Towers" but apparently that's the guy's name. :lol

This actually made me laugh when I read it on the train. :rollin

Regarding the stars: I think the amount of people claiming the bonus starts in particular category really matters. I think if there's only one guy in the category it's between silver and pink cost-wise, and if, say, there are four or five people in the category, it's worth less than bronze. It would add some value and purpose for picking the proper strategy. And I think the pearl star is worth a lot too. That's why I'm screwed in ruby category, but still hold a decent chance in the sapphire one.

I have a few songs I could send, but I need to listen to them a few times to pick one - and I'm really busy with rounding up my listens to EPs sent in my roulette, and other stuff too. I'm afraid I won't be able to send until tomorrow's evening, which is ~24-27 hours from now on. Sorry guys.

I almost went with Kingdom of Gold from Privateering. Think I made good choice with Border Reiver though.

I honestly think Kindgom of Gold would've failed. It's probably my second favourite song from Privateering (after Submariner), but it seems Dave doesn't like Mark's voice and I think this ballad would've ended up in "good but nothing special category". Definitely good choice with Border Reiver.  :tup

I think you are right about the stars, Ruslan. However, I think that's where the pearl stars really come into play. I think a pearl star may be worth at least as much as if only one person were under a category, if not more. There's a risk there.

I'm holding off on my last star until closer to the end. I want a pearl star. I'm in 2nd place in two of the categories :lol

Yeah, I'm not sending my third star-worthy song until the Round 7 or probably Round 8. I've got a fair chance for pearl in ballad category, but you never know, someone can screw me over with one well-placed ballad entry. The last rounds will probably be insane and full of mind games on those bonuses.

I've got to say, I really like this whole idea about bonus themes and stars.

I'll send for this round soon, still deciding which particular song to send from the artist.

I have one more bonus round fixed in my head, and the other one I have an idea for, but I'm not sure if I still want that bonus category because there's quite a bit of competition already.

Well, you got two letters right on that one, and one of them is already clearly visible ::).

I have no idea how you manage to actually read or guess those, whenever I'm looking at them I'll try to figure out a few and after 3 minutes I just say "screw it" because I can't read a thing.

I wonder if Bolsters will like it tho, maybe not. It's excellent nevertheless.

He liked the dreamy vocals of Tame Impala and the atmosphere of Arstidir, so I figured he might like this as well.

It’s quite different though.

I'm just gonna go out on a bang, not sure how this will fare but the next round could very well be my last.

No regrets from me so far apart from the Deadly Circus Fire, but maybe I was pushing my luck with Thrice a bit after getting a positive response from the TDH song.

Oh, and here's the thing from that rather pointless deviation earlier. Figured out what they are yet?

(http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o669/bolsters/Roulette2/blur-e1.png~original)



In other news, there's only three rounds left and some of you haven't been going for bonus stars. So here's a reminder for all of you about that.


Assuming that all of you actually want three bonus stars:

The following people need to ask for a bonus in all three remaining rounds
senecadawg2

The following people need to ask for a bonus in two of the three remaining rounds
jingle.boy, Shadow Ninja 2.0,  Train of Naught, Tyrias

The following people need to ask for a bonus in one of the three remaining rounds
Elite, Evermind, splent, Tomislav95

The following people don't need to pay any attention to this, they have three bonus stars already

 Man, oh well. I guess considering this is around five and is the first real bust that I've had, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that it happened. It was going to happen sooner or later. I will send something more to your liking for the next round. I have a couple of ideas I'm playing with.

I know, but apart from the fact that I don't like sending all-time favorite songs because it can be annoying to see those get bashed - and this is one of those all-time faves - I gave the edge to the song I just sent, so far I've had a better reputation here with the less heavy stuff.

Have I mentioned I love the way you handled bonuses? Very entertaining.

I wouldn't say that I'd 'checked out'... just that my strategy changed.  Sending what I thought were the "best" songs clearly wasn't cutting it, so I figured wth... go back to my plan of sending great songs AND cover off all the themes.  Turns out, the latter strategy seemed to have worked this round. 

Hey, at least I'm not re-loading Animotion for the synth/pop star.   :biggrin:

I know exactly what I'm sending, and will do so when I can - at the airport flying home today, and have some work things to do first.

I thought they were a band I only listened to a few songs from, but I recognised your song within seconds when I played it. Turns out I actually know that whole album because I've listened to it a few times, along with a single spin of a couple of their others. So yeah, sorry about that, but I'm always looking for new stuff and I guess some of it I didn't remember enough at the time to actually put it on the banned list.

i'm actually considering getting that damnation angels album because of the one listen i gave the one song

i dunno i need to connect with the symphonic metal side of DTF more, i have a vanden plas album in my cart too bcuz everyone was talking about them last year and the album was pretty cool i guess
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ R5 Results Posted - Send Moar Songs ★
Post by: Evermind on April 24, 2016, 12:29:59 AM
I haven't heard the Damnation Angels album yet but from what people are saying it's fantastic.

Which Vanden Plas you plan on buying? Their latest (Part II) was awesome, but if the price isn't too high, consider getting both parts at once. Listening to them back to back might be a bit daunting, but there are some recurring melodies from the first part on Part II, those really enhanced my experience.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ R5 Results Posted - Send Moar Songs ★
Post by: Parama on April 24, 2016, 12:32:06 AM
i'm erring on the side of caution and getting the first chronicles now, but i can just y'know get the second one later
i assure you that even if i got them both i wouldn't be listening to them back to back anyways, so  :lol

plus if i'm familiar with the first before listening to the second i'll prob notice the recurring themes right away and go "wow that's cool"

like it took me about 3-4 listens of the astonishing until i noticed most of the recurring themes because i'm bad
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ R5 Results Posted - Send Moar Songs ★
Post by: Evermind on April 24, 2016, 12:34:30 AM
The second part is better in my opinion, but not much better. It just has more standouts. The first part is good in the beginning, and it gets awesome on tracks 8-10 for me. This is one of my favourite run of songs in the last few years.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ R5 Results Posted - Send Moar Songs ★
Post by: Parama on April 24, 2016, 01:16:57 AM
recommend me another prog metal band you're a big fan of, i guess, easier to get recommendations than seek stuff out myself  :lol
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ R5 Results Posted - Send Moar Songs ★
Post by: Evermind on April 24, 2016, 01:38:18 AM
Tough to say, you already know most of the bands I'm a big fan of. Do you have Beyond the Bridge - The Old Man and the Spirit? That album made my Top 10.

Out of the relatively unknown and recent ones, I really liked Dimension Act - Manifestation of Progress (a mix of progressive metal and rock, the epic on the album is outstanding), Need - Orvam: A Song for Home (progressive metal with a heavier, darker edge), Amadeus Awad - Death is Just a Feeling (atmospheric progressive metal with some dark landscapes), Echoes - Nature / Existence and Thoughts Factory - Lost. These are in my regular rotation these days. You might find some of them quite generic though.

I'm sure I'll find a lot of great bands once I start listening to the bands people sent me in my roulette, pretty sure Damnation Angels and Redemption will make this list.

oh man, i just checked out a few tracks from that beyond the bridge album like an hour ago  :lol
maybe i'll give the entire album a spin then.

i'll check out a song or two from the rest i guess. the only dimension act song i found was the epic tho so that should be fun/not happening at this late of an hour
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ R5 Results Posted - Send Moar Songs ★
Post by: Evermind on April 24, 2016, 01:49:51 AM
Yeah, go for it. Not counting The Human Equation and The Theory of Everything, that Beyond the Bridge album is my favourite progressive metal album.

To make it easier with the other bands:

Dimension Act - Manifestation of Progress (Trailer #1 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PohIOJWxkoQ) / Trailer #2 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mITTsCFPKh0))
Need - Orvam: A Song for Home (Trailer :lol (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cYY52BvYFU) / Album Opener (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dNiUMFpnoo))
Amadeus Awad - Death is Just a Feeling (Behind the Scenes Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aowRMUGGsew))
Echoes - Nature | Existence (Album Opener (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDJlD1a0cIk))
Thoughts Factory - Lost (Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gajQDu_Bg5E))

already youtubing up some of the songs but thanks
the need track I heard didn't do much for me, i may check out one more later just to make sure, dunno
the first amadeus awad song i listened to (opia) was not really a metal track (but i liked it) so i listened to the one after it too and it was pretty solid. anneke being on this is probably part of why you like it a lot i guess?  :P i'll probably check out this album in full, though. cd price on amazon is nutso tho and it's not on importcds either so i probably won't get to it for a while
echoes was okay, didn't care for the singer much and it didn't really stand out a lot, but okay
thoughts factory the song i found had a nice energy to it, the video was cheesy as heck tho but yeah, thought it was alright

probably only going to look into amadeus awad of all of these tbh but that's one more than i'd have looked into before

Yes, definitely. Only the top person in each category will have a pearl star. If I like your song more, I'll take it from whoever has it and give it to you. :biggrin:


As for bonus stars...

Assuming that all of you actually want three bonus stars:

The following people need to ask for a bonus in both remaining rounds
senecadawg2, Train of Naught

The following people need to ask for a bonus in one of the two remaining rounds
Elite, Evermind, jingle.boy, Shadow Ninja 2.0, Tomislav95, Tyrias

The following people don't need to pay any attention to this, they have three bonus stars already
bl5150, splent

Ehh, not even a silver. :( Pink is a small consolation when all five people in the round get those.

But hey, I've got my first pearl star! Everyone kindly stop sending ballads for a sapphire stars please.

Deciding between yours and seneca's songs for silver/pink was probably the most difficult decision I had to make this round.

Also I do think I'm being too generous with the pink stars, but I have to remain consistent across all rounds, so...

Oh, and also, I thought amethyst star was for pre-1979 songs. This song is from 1980 so I figured it won't qualify.

I thought it was from 1979 because that's what it says according to Spotify. However now that I look it up properly I see that it is indeed from 1980. So, Spotify is apparently wrong.

From now on I'll look for a more accurate source to reference when people send me amethyst songs. ::)

If The Reign of Kindo wasn't banned I would most likely send something off Play With Fire because that's literally what I'm doing this entire roulette :rollin

Need to think hard about this one.. there's a chance I won't go for the remaining bonus stars even, it's probably a big waste, but I don't have anything good that fits these teams honestly, the ones I do have could cost me the competition so I just hope I can keep that pearl star here.

Glad you kinda liked Novembre :biggrin:

Good idea ToN, leave those bonus stars alone. Though I suppose you can send for a garnet star, I have no interest in those and the category already has a pearl.  :biggrin:

I think I'll be stealing your pearl away next round though, or at least try.

The good news is I'm probably getting coal this round. Figured that with the current standings (or at least how I interpret them), I don't have much to lose. I don't really care if I'm second or last. So, big risk incoming.

Well I didn't kinda like it, I did like it. That's why you got a pink star. Though if I were to rank all of the pink stars (and no, I'm not going to actually do it :lol) it would probably be second or third from the bottom. Since I liked Verde more than one or two song(s) I previously gave pink to, it made sense to give you one aswell.



By the way if anyone has questions about the stars, I did say I would be more forthcoming during the final two rounds. So long as my answer doesn't explicitly reveal the values of any stars, I will more than likely answer it (or maybe not, but there's only one way to find out :biggrin:)

Wow, I didn't expect a gold star, sweet :metal
For three rounds now I have this one band for last bonus star but I'm not sure would you like it at all (there are no similar bands on the banned list). I guess it's one of those love 'em or hate 'em bands.

Post by: Train of Naught on April 26, 2016, 04:32:07 AM
Do I look like I have any "world music" at all? :lol Or pre 1980's music even.

The only star I'm considering is the instrumentals one, and maaaybe orchestra but the one I planned for that one is way too risky, so at worst I'll hold on to it until the last round.

Glad you kinda liked Novembre :biggrin:

So, questions:
Is a diamond or a pearl star worth more?
How do bonus stars lose their value when more participants send for that star? Is it "points awarded=total points/number of songs in that category" or something else?

Not cool, man, not cool at all. You know the more people are in the bonus category, the less points you get from the bonus stars, right? Maybe try peridot or emerald?

Diamond is worth more than pearl.

I made a table that tells me what the stars are supposed to be worth when a particular number of people (from 1-10) have acquired it.

If you're asking if the addition of the point values of those two stars is worth more than a single pearl, the answer is yes. Definitely. :lol

If you are asking if either of those two stars is worth more than pearl, the answer is that both of them are.

I was asking the former. Huh, this is intriguing. Didn't expect pearl to cost that low. Less than pink... Okay folks, go ahead and steal my pearl, I'll just get two remaining diamonds I guess.

Well look at it this way: Songs that have pearl stars attached are probably worth quite a bit already - diamond or gold usually for the song in the round, then the bonus star aswell. If pearl was worth too much it would be very unbalanced.

Post by: Evermind on April 26, 2016, 05:24:27 AM
Yeah, I get it.

Got another good question that won't reveal basically anything - are all the star values integers or did you use decimals too? If it's the latter, are the decimal numbers related only to bonus stars?

Post by: Bolsters on April 26, 2016, 05:31:39 AM

Every star has a whole number as its value. This includes the changing values of the bonus stars.

You want one of those pink balloons now, do you? :biggrin:

I think the ceremony I did last time was rather pointless, so I hadn't planned on doing anything like that this time. I suppose if the winner requests it, I could make a big diamond star graphic with their name on it, but I'll likely leave it at that.

My Xandria submission covered four themes - world, ballad, multi-vocalist, and orchestral (sorry, I can't remember off the top off my head which color is which theme); ELP covered keys/pre 1979.

I suppose there's enough from each vocalist that it can qualify for that, but I don't think I would have awarded the orchestral star to it had you asked. All I remember is some background noise that sounded like strings, and I said that the influence had to be "significant" for a song to qualify. :P

So three on that, synth and pre-80's for ELP. That's five, you still need to send an instrumental and something symphonic/orchestral if getting all seven is your goal here.

I'm so curious what Bolsters will say about my song this round. I discovered it completely randomly, and my first listen was basically alternating between "wtf is this" and "this is amazing".

It's not 36 minutes long, and neither is it an instrumental, though. So I guess I'm not winning in coolness points.

IMO, Evermind should've won that round and been given every f'n star in the universe! But hey, that's just me...

I agree. Great song, that one.

The blur is real:

And of course, the bonus stars being awarded: sapphire, emerald, amethyst, and peridot. This also means that the final three pearl stars will be handed out in the emerald, amethyst, and peridot rankings. :o

Alright, so something has been bugging me. I don't particularly like springing this on all of you, but I have to rectify something here even though I made no note of me eventually doing this in the rules at the start.

I've said several times already that I wanted to be consistent with handing out the pink sympathy stars, and I have to admit now that I feel that I have failed to do this. There are a number of songs already that I have not awarded stars to that I feel either got a raw deal, or are of the same quality as songs that were awarded pink stars. Therefore I intend to award a number of pink stars to songs from previous rounds to hopefully right this imbalance.

I know some of you already think there's too many pink stars and you joke about their apparent worthlessness, so I guess some of you are rolling your eyes at the idea of me handing out more of the things than I already have. But if it's a choice between having people feel that way, or having some people feeling like I've swindled them out of points they deserved, I'd very much rather people be bitching about the former.

So, during the beginning of this round I will also be relistening to the songs that were not awarded a star, and in some cases I will also relisten to the coal star songs. When I'm done with this, I will post a list of songs that will be retroactively awarded pink stars. As mentioned I already have several in mind that I want to give stars to, but I think it's only fair that I give all of the songs that were not awarded points a chance. So that's what I am going to do.



TL;DR version: I'm giving pink stars to some of the previous rounds' songs. Deal with it.
Title: Re: Bolsters™ The Roulette, v2 ★ Working on R7 ★
Post by: Evermind on April 28, 2016, 09:38:12 AM
Well, I'm going to meh this for two reasons: I certainly won't get any more starts since I'm already at maximum (selfish, yes), and I think you should stick with your decisions whenever you made them. You didn't think that song should get a pink star at that moment? Well, tough luck.

I mean, what makes you so sure you know how to properly award pink stars now? You can re-listen and award some more stars for earlier rounds, find some grower songs, but what about Round 7 and 8? What if some of the grower songs are there? Will you be relistening to the Round 8 songs a few weeks later and postponing the final results until then? I guess no, because that's ridiculous. So, tough luck. I don't see why it should be any other way for any previous round.

But you're the host and it's your roulette... so I'll just stick to sending good songs and leave the decisions to you. :biggrin:

It's not a matter of finding grower songs, it's about comparing songs with pink stars verses those that don't and making it consistent. I'm relistening to familiarise myself with the songs again, not find out if I like them more now than I did previously. I've received 111 songs so far, while I could certainly not listen to anything and just go with the ones I would like to give a pink star to on gut reaction, I don't think that's entirely fair.

It's hardly the first time anyone has relistened to previous rounds and given more points, either.

Bronze star worked pretty good in the v1 but I just think it's rare that there would be a round where he wouldn't like either of the 10 songs sent.

It probably wasn't necessary to keep it. In the last roulette it was necessary because the songs scored based on how they rated against just one other song, so there were bound to be instances where both of the songs would be pretty average, and that's exactly what happened because I ended up handing a few of them out. This time however it's a ranking of every song I was sent, so in order for a single bronze star to appear, it would mean a minimum of 7 people missing the mark, simultaneously. I'm not surprised that it didn't happen, you guys aren't that bad at picking out songs for me (for the mostpart  :P)

100% agree with this.  If you're going to 'add' pink stars, then in theory you should also go back and potentially 'delete' pink stars.  My opinion is that when a round is over, it's over.  Scores are set - you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube.  People don't go back and re-score songs towards the end of the roulette.... 'ya know, that song really deserves an 8 now, not the 6 I gave it initially'.

I've said this before, but this is the fallacy of scoring systems vs stack ranking.  Scoring systems have the challenge of trying to score consistently across rounds.

But, as Evermind said - and I agree wholeheartedly - it's your roulette; you make the rules/conditions.

Sacul also added some scores on re-listening.

But as far as I remember no one so far gave the songs a lower score than they actually had.

Post by: Sacul on April 28, 2016, 10:35:49 AM
I felt tempted to do so, but it would have felt a bit unfair, thus when initially scoring, I went with lower scores in case I felt the tracks deserved something better in the relistens.

I wasn't really expecting this kind of reaction actually. I wouldn't be much of a host if I intentionally pissed off my contestants.

There is nothing about this in the rules I suppose plus it looks like it won't be all that well received by several people. So I've changed my mind, no do-overs.

Here are some star facts for you all to chew on.


As of the end of Round 6, if you were to add up the points of every star that has been awarded, all of the bonus stars (the seven gemstones and pearl) make up roughly 30% of the total.

The point value difference between a bonus star that only one person has and a bonus star that all ten of you have is roughly 300%.

Yeah same here, I got a 9 for my qualification song. And then in the actual roulette every score ranged from 7 to 8 apart from the TDH one :lol

Maybe I should just join roulettes for the sole reason of sending The Dear Hunter because on all three occasions I sent them I got either #1 or #2 of the round.

I made people check some of the bands I sent. As long as we're doing that it's cool even though we're not winning :tup

to be fair, i haven't listened to that specific halsey song and it might not be as bad
the lyrics look awful tho tbh
Lyrics generally have to be either horrific or hilarious before I take any notice, or I have to listen to the song 100 times. The lyrics in Colors didn't really register.

Also if that's the same Igorrr song that Sacul sent in my roulette, I thought it was fantastic. I sort of have the same feeling about the electronic stuff, actually, the vocalist was just fantastic enough to really sell it.
I did like her. Maybe if Igorrr has some original tracks that she sings on I would like those, but this kind of electronica where someone just takes another song and puts beats to it doesn't appeal to me at all.

Sorry if I missed it - struggling to keep up with everything while away - but what was this all about?
Nope, never explained, didn't know anyone still cared. :lol I only made it because Elite asked for another blurred image. But these are just artists that are recommended to me by Last.fm.



I've gotten four submissions already, although one has been asked to resubmit. Two of the four submissions are from soundtracks, so I guess seneca's recent success has inspired some of you. :justjen

I'm pleasantly surprised, but you hinted at why I sent you the song in your write up. This song isn't one of my favorites either (I mean I like it but not as much as other synthy stuff I've sent you), but it has the same kind of vibe as Style by Taylor Swift with a touch of Lorde quirky vocal timbre so I'm like what the hey I'll try it. Glad you liked it.

I'll send round 8 and post my roulette intro rather shortly. I literally just got up and I'm not sure I'm staying up yet (I may go back to sleep... It's only 7am) :lol

The standings at the moment are very interesting...take my word for it.

(diamond + pink) vs 2 Silver is the main issue for first place.  Not to mention that Ruslan is has a pearl in 4-person bonus category vs Brent has it against 3 others.

For 3rd place, it's a matter of (gold + silver) vs 4 Pink ... Elite vs me.  I have 2 pearls in 3-person bonus categories though, so that makes me think I might be in 3rd place alone.  In either case, I'm happy with my song choices.

I'm really glad to see that no one got 3 coal stars. I think it would've been a drag to get the boots mid-way through the competition - if I'd have done that in mine, Dave not have made it to the final round!   :biggrin:

Gotta decide if I want to send a multi-vocalist song, or a ballad.  hhhhmmmm....  Who to take a notch out of??

You evil, evil man. Actually I went with something quite risky since a third coal star doesn't affect me as much in this last round, I'm ranked near the bottom anyways. Doesn't mean my song isn't fucking awesome though.

Hard to say whether this is even possible, there's just too many moving parts and I don't even know which bonus stars the people who haven't sent yet will want. I wouldn't rule the possibility out.

It was a close call, and I just realised that I didn't update the sapphire standings (you were supposed to be between Evermind and seneca, not below seneca). Like I said, it was a grower. I've fixed that now.

Okay, I think my song is going to be the case of "go big or go home" approach. It will probably be my downfall too, but for once in this roulette, I'm sending something I actually love and not just like or appreciate. Originally I wanted to send that Joan Baez song I sent in the Championship, but screw that, you'll get one of my favourite songs of all time, and pre-70s to boot. 1969 to be exact. Whoever has that pearl star in pre-80s category, watch out...

You can have the star you asked for.

Speaking of which, all of your submissions are locked in now, so here's the last batch of bonus stars being awarded: One each of ruby, sapphire, and emerald, along with two amethyst.

Let's play a game. Three people who are participating can each post a single number between 1 and 20. If the numbers chosen match the point values of any stars, I will reveal to you which ones. :o

Well there's only 7 of them so that would be impossible. (http://i1337.photobucket.com/albums/o669/bolsters/Roulette/tardstar-emot.png~original)

Also many of the stars have been awarded the same number of times, stars that have been awarded the same number of times will obviously have the same value. You guys did well evening out the bonus stars so there's not a whole lot of variety in their scores.

Post by: Evermind on May 03, 2016, 10:19:15 PM
I meant that one bonus star doesn't have 10 different values depending on how many people have sent for it, because the maximum amount is 14, there are no stars worth 2 and 7, and all the numbers are whole.

Or are we talking only about stars that are awarded now?

I'm talking about what the stars are worth right now, not their possible values. Obviously there's a wide range of possible scores the bonus stars could have had, but since this is the final round their values are now set. Some of the bonus stars certainly could have been worth 7 or 2, but none of them are.
