Goddammit Lucas! You sure know how to take the fun out of this.....
Tbf some great songs were sent on this round, like The Brothel, and Becoming Insane. But yeah, this ain't very funny. For you ;D

Damn, wasn't really sure you'd even like it, but glad you ended up checking the whole album - one of my favorite releases from last year, by such a talented yet obscure group.

Will send soon.

Fuuuuuck, Lucas.

Obfuscation, if you liked Electro Legs, I'd recommend you check out The New Caledonia's album 'Lotus', which is very much an unknown gem.  The guys in the band eventually made up the first incarnation of Kimbra's backing band, so they've been quite on the NewCal front since then.  Church.

Also keep doing write ups, its helpful to see what you like and dislike and how that correlates to the scores.

I will check it out since I did like it and I like Kimbra too so it's cool to hear they're both connected somehow.

I should anyway so I can get better them and at describing things.

Is there a length limit, or a length you would prefer the music not go over?

I would say no limit but would prefer not to get anything over 30 minutes long. I don't have as much time as I used to to be able to not care about song length but I want to give all the song a fair amount of listening time with the limited amount of time I have.

Well, now that that's out of the way, here's what I was going to send if you had said there was absolutely no length limit :P

Bruh, I'm going to watch it but probably  would've written like a 3 page essay as my write up for it if it would've been your submission.

Results!

Nekov - Spock's Beard: Something Very Strange

No Spock's Beard in my banned list cause I know them but only like 3 songs. So this song to me sounds like a typical prog song in that you know it sounds good, impressive musicianship, and how the song progresses from part to part. I actually like this song because I enjoy the instrumental sections of the song which I don't find boring which has been a case that has happened before for me with other songs or bands of this genre. As well as I think some the guitar solos and riffs in this song are really cool and fun to listen to. Also the chorus of this song got stuck in my head for bit which is a good thing as well. All in all a good song but just an average song overall because nothing really sticks out from plethora of prog songs I have heard or that makes me say wow, this is awesome.
Score: 7/10

LordCost - Pain of Salvation: Undertow

So you saw I had been sent PoS before in another roulette and I have to say I thought the song that I was sent was okay but afterwards forgot about it and just didn't spark an interest in me to go check the band's other work. This song on the other hand, will probably cause me to go check out their albums. Reasons why with this song are because I just like the build up the song has which isn't too long or trying to go overboard with it. The vocals and guitar work at the beginning really help set up the atmosphere and sound of this song which really helps paint the picture that the lyrics are trying to show. They pull it off so well that towards the end, it makes you want to start singing the lyrics as intense as their singing it. Can't write much about the instruments because they just do a solid and simple job in working together to make this song work.
Score: 9/10

Scorpion - Strapping Young Lad

I was about to tell you I couldn't receive this song when I saw it was from SYL since I was familiar with them but saw I had never heard this song and that I only new the songs Love?, Detox, Shitstorm, and that was it. I'm happy I got this song from you. How can a Canadian make so much good pissed off and mad at everything music is still hard to figure out. But yeah, this song just really gets me pumped but this song stands among many of those type of songs because of how much more awesome the guitars are in this song all the way and Devin's vocals are just top-notch in this one. It goes from one awesome and heart pumping riffs and beat to other just as cool sections with other awesome riffs or guitar noodling. I can't just listen to this song once without listen to it again after its done.
Score: 9/10

Sacul - Saltillo: Giving In

So Trip-Hop I'm familiar with but not much of a listener of it. Usually have to be in a certain mood to listen to music like this but that's not to say that I don't like it. For example, I like this song and everything, but don't find or see myself listening to it that often or better said, every once in a while I might remember it and listen to it. I gotta say though, its a solid song and the highlight of course are the vocals with the string arrangements accompanying the beat really giving a good layer of fullness to its sound.

Score: 6/10

sneakyblueberry - Unknown Mortal Orchestra: Multi-Love

I dig this song. Like how it starts off and the bass line the song has with the nice beat being playing by the drums. The vocals aren't that amazing or anything but with the effects used on them, they fit the song perfectly. Can't help but bump my head to this song cause I just like the groove it has and have to say the chorus is the not the greatest but pretty solid and can be memorable at bits but does sound a bit similar at times in how its sung to other ones I've heard or know.
Score: 8/10

Tyrias - Chelsea Wolfe: Carrion Flowers

Even without trying to or remembering, I did listen to this song in the darkness and it does go hand in hand with it. So I feel like this will be the hardest song to explain why I really like it in this round. So first off all that bass/synth line it starts off with and is the foundation of this song just sounds good throughout when layered with all the other sounds she uses to build up the song and help give it a dark feeling and maybe even a bit of sinister vibe to the song. What she does with the vocals in the song as well isn't anything new or original but I can't think of any other way the vocals would fit or work in a song like this. Like I said, I can't really come up with good ways of explaining why I like this song but I just do.
Score: 9/10

Lucien - Blue Man Group: Klein Mandelbrot

When I started listening to this at the beginning, it sounded like typical or other Blue Man Group stuff I had heard before or seen them play in some videos. But as the song kept on going I started thinking, is this really the Blue Man Group or some other band that was mislabeled. Gotta say I was surprised at first that you would send me something from the Blue Man Group and then as equally surprised at this song. It just grows as the song goes on and has many interesting things occur in it and pop up. The beat and rhythm used is a good one that helps just support any other instrument that pops up to make an appearance, most notably the guitar. But occasionally its other ones like the congas or whatever other contraptions they have made themselves to bang on and make noise. I was also surprised by how much I liked it and was captivated by it to keep on listening and paying attention to whatever would come next in the song.
Score: 8/10

Scores
1)Sacul: 55+6=61
2)sneakyblueberry: 50+8=58
3)Tyrias: 46.5+9=55.5
4)Lucien: 47+8=55
5)LordCost: 46+9=55
6)Scorpion: 45+9=54
7)Nekov: 46+7=53
8)adace: 41

So on to the last and final round which of course will be an open one as well. With Sacul in the lead, it'll be interesting to see if he'll play it risky or safe and see if sneakyblueberry and can live up to his name and sneak up past by him and win this. Before its over, I just want to thank you guys for being a part of this and being patience with me and actually coming back to finish this when I showed my face around here again. Also thanks to all the awesome music you guys have sent me. Will be fun to keep on listening to them once this is over.

True but I know for sure what will always be a hit with me and what won't. I know songs with cool guitar riffs or other things that just don't do it for me or I don't care to listen to.

Uhhhhhhhhh if you're asking about anything similar to BTBAM to me, just look at my username since its a BTBAM song title. I think that means I like them right?  :P ;)
