you did ask for something to make you feel good...I sent you a happy tune.
:lol

It was just a contrast to the other prog stuff I had gotten, I was absolutely not demanding prog.

I think we are more generationally closer than you'd imagine.

I haven't listened to terrestrial radio in nearly 15 years. Satellite is on again off again.

I have tried to make it a personal mission to get better stuff played on local rock/classic rock stations though.

For the betterment of all.

Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Round 4: Those previously unfortunate are catching back up

senecadawg2: The Contortionist  - Exoplanet (5/10)
The first part of the song was great, but eventually all the momentum was gone and it was a case of blue balls. Harsh vocals are usually hit or miss too for me, and this was a miss.

Shadow Ninja 2.0: Second Person – Gone Fishing (8.5/10)
I'm pleasantly surprised by this track, it's realllllyy good. The chorus is especially good.

Nekov: Mindflowers - The Merovingian (5.5/10)
I don't know what to say about this. I should enjoy this given how it's a mix of everything I like, but it just doesn't quite work out. It's not terrible, but it doesn't do much after all. I feel like the song tries too hard to fuse the styles.

adace: Ulver – Eos (9.5/10)
A beautiful track. Floats by just like I think Eve by DT does, and I love it.

YtseBitsySpider Maxxess – Red Earth (6.5/10)
Not bad. I don't know what else to say. It wasn't mindblowing but it was decent.

Big Hath: Weather Report – Palladium (6.5/10)
The little of Weather Report I've listened to hasn't been hugely impressive, it's been decent. Just like this tune. Decent. Individually, I know all of these artists are brilliant and have done great things but this just falls flat.

kingshmegland: The Pineapple Thief – 3000 Days (7.5/10)
The best part of the song is easily the first minute or so. The rest isn't too bad. All things considered a very solid track.

Tyrias: Arcade Fire – Rococo (5/10)
Meh. That word is a very accurate representation of my feelings towards this song.

wolfking: Evergrey – Mark of the Triangle (8/10)
An extremely solid prog metal song. I really like it. And that section from about 0:30-0:44 gave me a huge progasm. (+1) All in all a very solid prog metal song.

Scorpion: Camel - Nimrodel/The Procession/The White Rider (8.5/10)
Yeahhhh. This was awesome. I should have checked out Camel already, feels like I'm missing out on something profound here. The song does get progressively worse though, which kind of sucks.

Ben_Jamin: Bela Fleck and The Flecktones – Something She Said (9/10)
Wonderful track really. I know of this group but haven't really listened that much. I've got to change that. This track is absolutely beautiful. A flurry of great sounds.



Total Score:
senecadawg2: 33
Shadow Ninja 2.0: 33.5
Ben_Jamin: 31
Big Hath : 30.5
Scorpion: 30
Tyrias: 30
kingshmegland: 29
Nekov: 27
YtseBitsySpider: 26
adace: 25.5
wolfking: 25

At the end of the last round the difference between the top ranked and the lowest ranked was 12 points, now it's down to 8. It's great to have gotten some fantastic submissions in. Secena disappointed a bit, and some others sent some really stunning tracks.


Round 5: Open again. I suck at trying to limit you guys.

Glad you found it enjoyable. Outbound is a good album, I forgot how I found out about them, but got that album and loved it. Also,  the drums are from a zitar, that in itself is interesting.

hmm....about the score I expected for that track.
He has better stuff, he has worse.

I worry sometimes that the songs which I prefer may not be the ones you do - so I sent you a middle of the road song. Similarly with Ozric. In hopes you'll check more of their stuff and decide for yourself which is which.

I've been in enough of these to know that the points are cool and all but the winning comes from discovering new music from the submissions that you can research after the roulette is over.

Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.
