Re: Tyrias' Roulette v. Round 3 RESULTS, send Round 4

I thought I would score higher with La Villa Strangiato. Ah well  :laugh:

I've sent for the next round!

4/6 still means I really liked la vila strangiato ;). Also, it's probably easier to score high with a song out of a genre that I'm not that familiar with. First, I don't have so much to compare it to. 2nd, it feels fresher for the first few listens
Of course, it could also backfire drastically if it turns out I HATE the genre :lol

I'll certainly keep that in mind moving forward  ;)

You should've.  It's at least 11/6.  Oh wait, that's some of it's time signatures.   :lol

La Villa Strangiato is actually one of my least favorite Rush songs. It's like The Dance of Eternity for Rush.

Electronic music is fine ;). Bring it on :hat

And, to be fair, I like The Villa Strangiato far better than TDOE. TDOE would probably have been a 2,5/6... Some good parts, but mostly just too wanky by far :P

So, first, because this was a rather quick round, I withhold the right to add points to songs until the next round. Just in case something grows on me... But next chance for me to post something is on monday, and that's a bit late for my taste  :P. I think this was a difficult round for some of you, and from now on I won't be having limitations on genres.

So, here are the results:

lonestar: Sparks - The Hive-Mind

You needn't have worried so much ;) . While this wasn't perfect, it was a very nice jazz/funk instrumental (I guess those two genres sum it up the best.) I don't have much experience with this kind of music, but I might have to expand my musical horizon...
4/6 points

Sacul: Burial: Raver (Hyperdub 2007)
This was a very interesting piece of electronic music. The beat is simple but sounds great, I especially like this wobbly bass in the background. I like the glockenspiel and keyboard melodies, but the vocals are somewhat of a turnoff. They are a bit too whiny for my taste. Also, cutting about a minute of the song would have benefitted it as well. All in all, that's...
3,5/6 points

adace: Boards of Canada - Dayvan Cowboy
I actually have two albums by Boards of Canada at home, but I never listened to them enough to judge them properly... Anyway, this was a cool and relaxing piece of ambient music, and I'll definetely put on more of their music after this Roulette is over. It wasn't as good as that Hammock song you sent me last round, though.
4/6 points

Tom Bombadil: Reel Big Fish - Sell Out
I didn't even know a genre called ska existed until you sent me this song :lol. Anyway, this is a very fun song both musically and lyrically, especially liked the heavy use of trumpets. It had me dancing around the room as well, right now I'm having a pretty hard time staying put in front of my computer and not dancing away  :metal .
4,5/6 points

Shadow Ninja 2.0: Second Person - Gone Fishing
I've always had a faible for trip hop music, and this song is no exception. Pretty much everything about this song is great, loved the atmosphere, the beat, the vocals, the chorus, the bridge... I'Ve found another band I need to check out ;D
5,5/6 points

Lucien: Lucien - Cave Of Ghosts
So; I wasn't really expecting someone to send his own music, and I definetely wasn't expecting it to be classical music (at least sort of), but this was awesome. It feels pretty drone-y alltogether, but there are some really cool melodies thrown in and reprised. The overall atmosphere is really bleak, but in a good way and in the end there is an awesome beautiful climax. Great song  ;D
5.5/6 points

senecadawg2: Clint Mansell - Death is the Road to Awe

Another awesome classical piece (well, actually it's a soundtrack...). Dramatic music with a big climax has always been fantastic for me, and this one has not just one but three (!!!) climaxes! :o IT starts of  very calm with piano, and then some awesome strings enter and it builds and builds and builds... I really need to see this film and listen to the rest of the soundtrack!
6/6 points

So, standings after round 4:
senecadawg2        20
Lucien                    19,5
adace                    18
Tom Bombadil        17,5
lonestar                 17
Shadow Ninja 2.0  17
Sacul                     15

senecadawg2 retakes his lead, but is closely followed by Lucien! Since we're only about halfway through now, everyone still has a chance!   ;)

Round 5: Send me something with an awesome climax!

If I had known you wanted to climax, I would've saved the Clint Mansell track for this round  :smiley:

I'm glad you liked it though! And I'll send shortly

So, round 5 results. Pretty diverse round, I was expecting a lot more samey stuff, but I'm glad most of you sent something not that obvious :tup.

Shadow Ninja 2.0: Widower by The Dillinger Escape Plan

This was a really weird track. Starts off with ambient noises, then becomes kind of classical with an atonal influence, then some really cool stuff I can't really describe and some really heavy shit to top it of. Followed by another piano section and a reprise of the louder parts. Sounds like it's never going to work out, but somehow they manage to pull it off splendidly. Really cool entry, and definetely a worthy climax  :tup.
4,5/6 points

senecadawg2: Damien Rice - 9 Crimes
Oh, I love me some singer/songwriter stuff. This is a really sad, very laid-back ballad with a bit of a build up thrown in. Both the male and the female singer's voice fit the song perfectly, and the strings that kick in about halfway through are absolutely amazing. I'll definetely be checking out more of Damien Rice, this is right up my alley ;D.
5,5/6 points

lonestar: Absolute Priority - Dead Man Walkin'
I've always said that italian singers always sound like they are singing a love song, and this is no exception... even though he is actually singing about a serial killer waiting to die :lol . Anyway, this song is quite fantastic. Starts off acoustically with some beautiful melodies, and somewhere around the 3-minute-mark the whole band kicks in and there's an awesome guitar solo. I do however feel that the outro could have been a bit shorter. It's still great, but... yeah.
5/6 points

Lucien: Disney's Fantasia 2000: Firebird Suite
For some reason, the beginning of this song reminds me of Harry Potter :lol. Anyway, this meanders far too long before anything interesting happens. When it gets louder though, it's really great. Unfortunately, that means it's just good overall.
3/6 points

Tom Bombadil: Beyond The Bridge - Where The Earth And Sky Meet

This is a very atmospheric song with some great guitar work. It's a great listen when you are just lying around relaxing and has some really cool melodies. I don't really have anything else to say, but I definetely liked it :tup.
4/6 points

adace: Isis - Panopticon - 4 - Wills Dissolve

I was expecting lots of post-rock/metal this round, but for some reason you were the only one who met those expectations. ;) This song has a really cool build-up with some really strong riffs/melodies and reminds me of Russian Circles a bit (except for the vocals of course). Never quite manages to blow me away, though...
4/6 points

Sacul: David Maxim Micic - Where Is Now? 
This is right up my alley. Sounds a bit like Devin Townsend, but not so much that I would call it derivative. Plus, it's better than anything recent I've heard of Devin (I'm not oe of his greatest admirers, so I haven't exactly listened to every album of his, but you get the jist ;) ). If I had to describe this song in one word it would be: Epic!
5/6 points

senecadawg2          25,5
Lucien                      22,5
adace                      22
Tom Bombadil          21,5
lonestar                  22
Shadow Ninja 2.0   21,5
Sacul                       20

Round 6 theme: Send me something epic . Keep in mind that epic doesn't necessarily have to mean "long", a 4 minute song can be epic as fuck if done right ;) . Also, just in case someone wants to go overboard with this; I'm setting a time limit: 18:43 minutes at maximum. (inspired by lonestars "best of the epics" thread  ::) )
