--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lonestar - Redemption - Peel

A powerful tune. I like the use of the keys both when they’re providing background as well as driving with the melody. The song is pretty consistent and flows well though  nothing stands out to me.

Score: 5
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tyrias - The National - Wake up your saints

So this is “happy”? :lol Nice tune with a slow buildup with a good work from the piano. Everything is quite simple but that’s alright because it all fits together. I find the pace of the song soothing even though it’s not slow.

Score: 7
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Freezingpoint - Shiny Toy Guns - Wait for me

Weirdest song of the bunch by far. You took a risk and I’d say it payed off. The intro is a bit misleading but right after that the song shows what it’s about. Both vocals are great and the music is obviously thought to support them. The electronic elements bring a different and refreshing feeling to the already soothing mood.

Score: 7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lucien - Alexander Borodin - Polovetsian Dances

Another nice piece of classical music. This one more mellow than the one you sent before but not as solid. The individual sections are nice yet the transitions seem a bit forced and attempt against the natural flow of the song and eventually it gets a bit stale.

Score: 4

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jingle.boy - Bruce Springsteen - Jungleland

Very nice intro and some good ol’ rockin right after that. I like that the song is more piano led, contrary to what I would expect from Springsteen. Closer to the middle of the song it starts getting a bit boring and loses all the great momentum it had built upon which is a bit of a shame. It does seem to wanna pick up at the end but it’s just too late.

Score: 5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. DTVT - Fish - Vigil in a wilderness of mirrors

The song starts out very calm and my first impression was boring but after listening to what comes after I think it’s fine since it provides a nice setup to the buildup that comes after. The song turns out really nice and beautiful, I love happy music and this qualifies as that. Even better because it has good instrumentation and sets some good moods.

Score: 7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scorp - Beyond the bridge - The call

Powerful song. It’s another quite standard prog metal song that is good but lacks that something special that makes a band stand out.

Score: 5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adace - Hammock - I can almost see you

So soothing and peaceful. I just felt my whole body relax while listening to this song. My mind turned blank and everything was allright. It is incredible how much I get immerse into this one.

Score: 9

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adace   9
Dr. DTVT   7
Freezingpoint   7
Tyrias   7
Jingle.boy   5
Lonestar   5
Scorpion   5
Lucien   4

Lucien's out, the rest follow through to the next round. Remember the scoring adds up each round.

Glad you liked it! If you listen to anything else from their latest 2 albums, you'll get why I consider this song happy by comparison^^. 
Whats your stance on sennding bands that have already  been sent? And so you add up the points or does each round count extra?

Dr. DTVT - Pyramid Theorem - Another day slips by

Nice intro and even better transition to the more powerful section. The guitar melodies are very nice, the keys provide a great background and the drums are quite interesting. Overall a good song and as you said, this stands out in the prog metal world.

Score: 7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adace - Mono - Follow the map

I love me some post rock. I have been procrastinating with this band, I’ve seen it around here a lot but never got to listening to any of their work. Very soothing and peaceful song with great string work and beautiful guitar melodies. Luckily they knew not to make it too long though it leaves me wanting a bit more.

Score: 7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scorp - Sikth - In this light

There are some interesting bits to the song but the cadence and the overall feeling I get from it are not very satisfying. As I said before, I’m more of a happy music kinda guy.

Score: 4

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lonestar - Shaft of steel - Drive

I knew what to expect as soon as I saw the name of the band and quite frankly I was not disappointed. While it’s cheesy it still manages to be very fun and powerful. Man I wanna be at these guys’ concert rocking the hell out of this song.

Score: 9

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tyrias - Flogging Molly - You won’t make a fool out of me

Fun song but this super Irish stuff gets old pretty quickly and it all sounds more or less the same. I enjoyed it but it’s just one more Irish song.

Score: 5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Freezingpoint - Les Friction - World on fire

This song is weird. It feels like it could easily be a soundtrack for a movie or something of the sort. It has some really cool sections thought the transitions are a bit sudden and mess up with the flow. The vocalist is quite amazing.

Score: 6

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jingle.boy - Roswell Six - I am the point

Groovy song, nice melodies and rhythms. The whole instrumental section of the song is quite amazing. Unfortunately for you your cheatin didn’t play here. First of all Labrie is my least favorite DT member so not a good choice and second he brings the song down with that horrible chorus. If this song was purely instrumental it would be fantastic.

Score: 6

Totals

Adace   16
Dr. DTVT   14
Lonestar   14
Freezingpoint   13
Tyrias   12
Jingle.boy   11
Scorpion 9

Thanks for joining scorp and sorry it didn't work out. It's not you, it's me....
