Damn, this is the toughest roulette I've been involved with yet.  I think our tastes are too far apart.  Let's see how I go in round 3.

Like you guessed, that Anathema song definitely is more of a transition track. It's good within the context of the album, and I even like it alone, but I can understand why it doesn't have the instant appeal of a "Dreaming Light". I hope that hasn't dissuaded you from checking them out in more depth.

As for my own submission, I'm glad you enjoyed it! The movie really is beautiful- probably my second favorite movie of all time. Also, props to Nekov for the excellent Sigur Ros song. It's not the one I would have chosen, but there's really no going wrong with any of their music.

I'll send you round 3 shortly!

Sent. I don't know how you'll react to it, but this one makes me feel good in a calm, soothing way rather than a jump for joy ecstatic way.

I'll send mine later.

There are so many good Ozric tunes, bummer this one didn't catch you.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

yo jsem… After elimination rounds, will the scores remain as they stand, or be reset? I'm assuming the former, because you didn't mention otherwise, but I figured I ought to double check.

So glad i didn't send that Deafheaven song I was considering  :D . And if there hadn't been a Sigur Ròs song in this round (especially since it scored so well), I would have totally send one this round. Will have to think a bit  and send soon.

I guess that was a bad choice, I shouldve sent the other one. But typical prog ballad, it was released in '96, but as I said, I wanted to send the live version as that's the version I prefer and its more dynamic and just better overall than the studio

ROUND 3 RESULTS ARE INNNN

Big Hath: Mingus Big Band – Moanin (10/10)
One of the most swinging, badass, epic renditions of one of my favorite tunes ever. Hnnnng. What am I doing with my life, how have I not gone balls deep into Mingus Big Band's discography. Especially as a baritone player... this is heaven. I need to start playing like this.

senecadawg2: Thank You Scientist – A Salesman's Guide to Nonexistence (9/10)
If I were in the US, them opening for Coheed. It would be a show I could not possibly miss, judging by this track at least. It was awesome. Man, you're killing this roulette. So up my alley. Just misses out on a point for the slightly weaker second half of the song.

Nekov: Iluvatar – In the Eye (6/10)
Not a huge fan of the keys on this track, but otherwise a decent prog song. Can't say much more than that, it didn't stick to me that well. Some sections better than others too, as it's a bit long.

Ben_Jamin: Stephen Marley – Hey Baby (8/10)
Ahh yeah. Listened to a lot of reggae before I got a last.fm, hence why it's not there. Haven't listened to Stephen Marley enough though, but this was really good. Laid back, awesome.

Shadow Ninja 2.0: Steam Powered Giraffe – Brass Goggles (9/10)
Instantly made me smile. Oh man, this is awesome. I hope all their tracks are this awesome.

kingshmegland: Moon Safari – Mega Moon (9/10)
When I listened through their stuff a long while ago, I felt they were a less interesting version of A.C.T. I might have to revisit their stuff, because this song was fun, quirky and awesome.

Scorpion: Transatlantic – Stranger In Your Soul (7/10)
Well. A long prog epic. This needed a few listens to sink in. I'm still not completely sure what to think about this. Certain sections were better than others, but not by any huge margins. Not 100% impressed on the cohesiveness of things. Overall pretty decent.

I have heard some Transatlantic before, but only a little. I know I liked Duel With The Devil the first time I heard it so I don't know why I haven't thoroughly checked out Transatlantic yet, I really need to do it even though this particular song wasn't perfect.

Tyrias: Guro von Germeten – Fa Fa (Come Stand Before Me) (10/10)
THANK YOU. This was awesome in so many ways. Your description of this being a chanson/sailorsong/jazz crossover was pretty spot on. Brb taking a train to Oslo tomorrow.

adace: Alcest – Autre Temps (8.5/10)
I don't know if this was such a feel-good song, but it was very rock solid nonetheless. I really enojyed the song.

wolfking: Eric Johnson – Lonely In The Night (5/10)
Eric Johnson is a familiar name, I know he's a very accomplished guitarist. This song wasn't one of the best though, it didn't do much for me. I've heard a few other songs by him and they were much more impressive.

YtseBitsySpider: Blessed By A Broken Heart – Rockin' All Night (6/10)
This is very much not prog, :lol. I can find this type of hard rock good depending on the circumstances. Chorus is weak, riffing is pretty good though. Overall decent.

Total Score:
senecadawg2: 28
Shadow Ninja 2.0: 25
Tyrias: 25
Big Hath : 24
Ben_Jamin: 22
Nekov: 21.5
Scorpion: 21.5
kingshmegland: 21.5
YtseBitsySpider: 19.5
wolfking: 17
adace: 16


Round 4: I DON'T KNOW. I'll make it open. Can't think of anything else really.

I do think this last album was a huge step for Moon Safari.  I can't stop listening to it.  Start with that!

YES! I was pretty sure you'd like that song. I hope you check out some other songs by Guro von Germeten, she has some awesome stuff on her albums. I saw her live half a year ago without a band, just her and the accordeon and I immediately bought her CD afterwards.
I will probably send another song tomorrow.

They're not my favourite or anything, but I don't have a lot of happy, proggasmic music, and Bridge Across Forever IS a pretty cool guy album. No fan of the rest of their stuff though.

Anyway, I'm thinking on this. I want a high score for a change this round. :P

Well, it didn't have to usher in a progasm for it to be awesome, seeing as the 10/10 score went to something different.

SCORE! I'm really enjoying this roulette  :biggrin:
