I'm nothing if not consistent - third 7/10.  Given how stingy you are on your ratings (which is totally cool), I'll gladly take it.

Doc, I knew when you made your comment that it was Worlds you were sending.

I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Thanks a lot guys for that compliment. That's definitely been my intention. To be fair several other roulettes (especially Seneca's as a recent example) really have done nice in depth write-ups on the songs. I try to just focus on scoring the tunes and enjoying the material you all are sending. As I mentioned before, if anyone has questions afterwards about the song they submitted that I didn't really cover by all means bring it up and maybe I can help. As you guys noted, the contestants here have certainly been on the ball to help keep it rolling. Thanks for that  :tup

Yeah, I've wanted to speak on the scoring a little more. I tend to be a person who enjoys a lot of different music types and it's hard to score real low based on style of music. At the same time I want you all to be able to really tell and be rewarded when you blow my socks off with a song. Like I've said you all haven't sent a "bad" song as of yet and I don't see that coming. Mostly I'm enjoying all the goodness and anticipating the songs that knock it out of the park with me.

Too bad on ELO, though… I did sense that it might disappoint, but I'm confident that I can dig myself out of this hole  :big grin:

yay, glad you liked that one.  I intentionally sent one of their instrumentals because I know soul-type vocals can be off-putting to some.  Check out some of their other stuff like What is Hip, Soul Vaccination, or Don't Change Horses to get a feel for their classic sound with vocals.  Soul With a Capital 'S' and I Like Your Style are good examples of their later sound.

Will start listening today (Sunday) for round 5  Ulti is the lone contestant to not send in yet and he hasn't been on from what I can tell so no big worry there.

Round 5: 90's-10's


Woooooo!!! After the last round where scores dipped a little you guys all roared back in a big way. I've been jamming pretty good the past few days with these songs. Some higher scores for some really nice songs. Good job!




Evermind

Seventh Wonder - The Black Parade (7.5)

Instant headbang! Very nice start and strong vocals. Really like the atmospheric keys and the guitar playing here is quite nice all over.




Nekov

The Pineapple Thief - 3000 Days (8.0)

BAM! Easily grabbed me with the beginning of the song. It's such a strong entrance that vocally it's a bit hard for the singer to really fill in over the music but maybe that comes with listening to the band more? Regardless I'm loving this musically, very powerful and a bit off-kilter at times which keeps me interested.




senecadawg2

Agalloch - Limbs (7.5)

Powerful, slow building song. Strangely (to me) combines Post Rock, Folk Metal, Black Metal sounds which is pretty cool. Like most metal bands of this nature I REALLY dig them musically, but I struggle coming around to the vocals. If it was used to accentuate a particular part of the song I think I'd be more accepting. Still a strong tune.




Big Hath

Karnivool - Themata (8.0)

Absolutely feeling the riffs and groove in the song and definitely get the Tool vibe because of that. I'm sure it's just in the interest of giving the song a different feel, but I like the vocals much better when he's singing instead of almost rapping the lyrics out.




Dr. DTVT

IQ - The Seventh House (7.5)

Whoa 14 min song... and this one absolutely carries you on a journey. Can certainly feel the "story" of the song. I was wondering with how slow it starts out, how it would progress but it picks up and has numerous varied parts that keep it from getting too daunting at its length. Really pretty song overall with some very nice melody.




lonestar

Destrage - Destroy Create Transform Sublimate (9.0)

Holy crap! The music here was just straight up killer! The vocals were so crazy but right about at my perfect growl, clean, scream ratio. Sometimes I have issue with more free-form lyrics (where not a lot rhymes) but this just works so well. There's so much here... melody, guitar, wackiness, etc. I like it! I like it!




jingle.boy

Kiss - You Wanted the Best (7.0)

Ok, clearly I'm familiar with Kiss. I'm accepting this submission because I barely had any plays on my last.fm and I haven't really heard any material from the band past "Revenge"; so for me I can accept it just to see what they've done past that album.

I don't think the harmony vocals are bad, but I think I'd have preferred to hear a newer song with just Paul or Gene taking the lead instead of so much switching off here but I get what they were going for considering the song kind of points to all of them. The music is cool but what I really like here is the guitar solo!




Ultimetalhead

Dir en Grey - Different Sense (7.5)

Ok I'll admit I was a bit hesitant with Ulti's description he gave ahead of time. I hear all the things he talked about in the song. I really enjoyed the melodies, the music and the acrobatic vocals. The craziness, music and hectic pace is similar in some aspects of the song I gave a 9.0 to above from Destrage.

The only real issues I have with the song is some of the growls are just not my thing and the fact that the song is in Japanese. So basically if I was smarter and understood the language the song would probably score much higher.





Current standings after round 5:

1.Big Hath: (8.0) + (8.0) = 16
2.lonestar: (6.0) + (9.0) = 15
3.Ultimetalhead: (7.5) + (7.5) = 15
4.Nekov: (6.5) + (8.0) = 14.5
5.Dr. DTVT: (6.5) + (7.5) = 14
6.Evermind: (6.5) + (7.5) = 14
7.jingle.boy: (7.0) + (7.0) = 14
8.senecadawg2: (5.5) + (7.5) = 13




Next up is a Free Round, so you all send some of your best as it's also an elimination round! Scores will also reset afterwards once more for the final four rounds of throwdown!

hhhmmm... dangerously close to the cut line.  Let's see if I can get something other than a 7.0!  Think I know the direction I'm heading, seeing where the high scores came from.
