If you can, make sure to listen to my song super loud. In the dark. Maybe then we'll see a 9.5 bumped up to a 10.

Well, since you've basically lied to me, saying that you've never sent this song in roulettes before (I found out you did indeed send it to Ville in his last roulette), I'm afraid I have to cut your points for this song in half. :lol

 :lolpalm: that's only fair... I've played in too many roulettes.

Three listens in, the rankings did change a bit, the lowest ranked song is only 4 now, but the one with 9.5 still stays strong.

I don't know about you guys, but for me the most difficult thing in this roulette is to give an even amount of listens to each song. Because right now I just want to spin the hell out of this 9.5 song. But I'll refrain from it until I post the results for this round. ;)

The newcomer remark at least makes me hopeful for a decent grade  :P What I sent is a song I really love, both the music and lyrics. But ballads are very personal and can be utterly boring if they do not connect much (to a larger extent than most other types of songs for me because of the often slow and more "simple" nature).

Looking forward to this round's results, considering the banned list I am expecting stuff I do not know and I love ballads.

Well, any grade above 5 is decent enough, in my opinion. You're free to disagree though. ;) And I totally agree with your statement about the ballads, I've found a few of those a little bit boring and unmemorable. Which ones? Scroll down to find out!

Round 2: Results

wolfking: Lord Ė New Horizons

Ten seconds in and I already quite like this one; forty seconds in and Iím seriously in love with this one. The soulful singing is complemented perfectly by the acoustic guitar playing in the background. This song is a whole load of concentrated awesomeness until the saccharine electric guitar comes in; thatís where it drops to merely good. I have a feeling it just becomes too sweet and happy to my taste in these moments, while the verses have this longing feeling that really appeals to me. However, despite this punctuated sweetness, the singer manages to impress me, and the guitar solo that comes at around 2:30 is seriously captivating, and the way how they end it with those passionate lines is totally the satisfying and the right one, it makes me want to crank the volume up a fair notch. This song is a bit weird, I mean, itís the chorus I usually love in the ballads, and here I love everything to bits except the chorus. And since Iíve grown to like it too after a few listens, I can just admire the consistency in your entries so far. Great choice, man.

8.5/10

senecadawg2: Mazzy Star Ė Fade Into You

I havenít checked any information on this, but I assume itís kind of singer-songwriter stuff? Regardless, this is quite nice. Simple acoustic melody with something like a lap-steel guitar in the background, enhanced with a dreamy, haunting voice of hers. The tune instantly reminded me of a song after one of The Walking Dead (videogame by Telltale) episodes in the second season. This track is just so peaceful and wistful, itís a total pleasure to listen to, and your description is just spot on. The solo in the middle is yet another highlight, strikes me as something Gilmour would do on his solo work. Also, I assume this is some glitch with YouTube version of this tune, sometimes the sound just stops midway for me and continues after a few moments (like at 3:17 on the word ďyourĒ). Well, I donít take in into the consideration, because obviously itís not how itís supposed to be. Anyway, subtle keyboard touches, those rare lap-steel guitar sounds beneath the steady acoustic beat and the ethereal female voice on top of this, it all forms a beautiful, enchanting picture. I rated it 7 initially, but with subsequent listens this gem grew even more, and Iím almost in love with this song now.

8.5/10

lonestar: InnerShine Ė Divided in Two

Alright, this song was mediocre on my first listen, but it appeared to be a huge grower. At first, I wasnít even sure if it was a ballad, and I thought it was quite underwhelming. However, after a few listens, this song is pretty neat. The calm piano intro, a chunk of clean guitar, a tranquil verse, everything is fascinating until we go into the chorus territory. This is where the song almost loses me, but manages to get me back with the intense part where the title line is repeated. I enjoy all the instrumental parts, and overall this song is good, but chorus kind of kills the excitement for me. This is one of two progressive rock ballads in this round, the second was sent by Mason, and while Iím not incredibly fond of either, your song was superior. Not as good as your previous submission though. But, the ending is total brilliance, that I agree with.

7/10

Dr. DTVT: Xen Ė Find a Way

And hereís the second progressive rock ballad Iíve received this round. Youíve mentioned this band is basically Enchant, and I totally agree with this. So, naturally, I expected this song to be either hit or miss with me, because thatís just the way I feel about Enchant, I love some of their work, and I canít get into some other songs. Well, this song is closer to ďmissĒ in my book. Itís not bad, itís some cool, nice and happy prog rock with a few cool twists, but to be fair, itís just nothing special. I guess some of my dislike comes from the fact I prefer my ballads to be more sad, instead of this upbeat, energetic kind of tune. But itís still decent, and I also enjoy the solo in the end quite a lot. I will check out this album too, because out of curiosity I went ahead and checked out Existentialist, and while I gave it only one listen, it probably wouldíve got an eight. Turns out I really prefer sad or depressing ballads to the happy ones. But you didnít send it, pity, so instead you getÖ

5.5/10

Scorpion: Dog Fashion Disco Ė Desert Grave

I saw the bandís name and nearly decided to dismiss the song completely, but the first few seconds hooked me alright. While being only 3:22 in length, this song is all kinds of awesome, at least the most of it. The main part reminds me of something Knopfler would record, itís just so peaceful, playful and lovely. Very good instrumental part starting at 0:50 too. I love the bar-like, relaxed atmosphere of the song. For a short number, it contains a lot of surprisingly good stuff, but I really couldíve done without the weird transition at 2:30 to the more quiet part of the tune. But, whatever, you really went outside of the box with this one, and you didnít let TACís work in the first round go in vain, preparing the ground for kicking more asses in the future rounds. Iíll check those guys out after the roulette.

8/10

bl5150: Ten Ė Soliloquy/The Loneliest Place In the World

ďSo, letís see what Brent sent me here. Itís a ten minutes long song, and a ballad, so it just canít be as great as he descrióď
Those were my thoughts in a nutshell when I started to listen to this one masterpiece. And when the song got to this spectacular chorus at around 1:50, I was blown away completely. When I was thinking about the ďballadsĒ round, I expected some weird choices, but as Iíve made it fairly well known I enjoy hard rock and power metal, I thought Iíll get a lot of these sappy, a bit epic, predictable ballads with sweeping guitar solos. Instead, Iíve got a lot of (still enjoyable, of course) singer-songwriter stuff, progressive rock, ambient, whatever, but the kind of ballads I really have a soft spot for, those were missing until I gave a spin to this one. I knew I could count on some of you guys to deliver in this round, and man, you did just that. This song is perfection in almost every aspect. The vocalist is awesomely brilliant with mindblowing vocal melodies all around (hell, I was humming this chorus for the last two days already), the acoustic and electric guitars are just unbelievable, and despite the song being 10:29 in length (seriously!), it doesnít feel long at all. I feel like I can spin it all day and never get tired of it. Do I acknowledge this song is a bit sappy and cheesy and whatever? Yes. Do I care? Not at all. Seriously, this is one of the best songs Iíve heard in the last few years. Another album, and, possibly, the whole bandís discography to check out. Youíre going to make me bankrupt if you keep going like that, really, and Iím definitely not going to complain about it.

9.5/10

Sacul: Ulver Ė EOS

You asked me if I consider Gilmourís latest solo stuff ballads, and I do, but while this has a bit of resemblance to those, but I think Senecaís entry is much more Gilmour-like. I like the atmosphere on this one, itís a seriously relaxing track. I guess itís more ambient than anything. Iíve heard something like that a few times and I enjoyed it, but my problem with this kind of songs is theyíre not quite memorable for me. After five listens in, I doubt I can remember any single standalone moment in the song at all, only the overall picture and the mood. I guess Iím just not accustomed to such music. But, when Iím actually listening to this track, itís a nice listen. I wish the ending wasnít so sudden though.

7/10

ErHaO: Damian Wilson Ė When I Leave This Land

Iíve meant to check out Damian Wilsonís work for a long time, but somehow I never did. The way this song started, well, this was really unexpected, because I subconsciously tend to confuse Damian Wilson with Dan Swano. Yeah, I know. :lol Well, whatever, this indeed feels like some singer-songwriter stuff, and, weirdly, a lot of songs this round are like that. Well, this is enjoyable and soft and nice, but it lacks something to grab me. This is emotional alright, this is definitely a ballad, but it lacks something ó something that really can hook me. Enjoyable song, but not something Iím willing to check out impatiently.

5.5/10

Tyrias: Susanne SundfÝr Ė The Brothel

So you had pretty much nothing to lose after your quite low mark in the opening round, and now you came up with this entry. And it seems like you will have something to lose now after this round, because this song is just lovely. Haunting, soulful and touching, it really captures my attention at every listen. I love a good female voice with the fine melodies, and this is exactly how I can describe it. Her voice reminds me of Candice Night in some moments, yet more quirky and unpredictable. I wish the song ended at 5:10 though; even though the ending is beautiful too, it just doesnít fit the rest of the song, in my opinion. However, otherwise I have no complaints; Iíll be checking this album out after this is over. Oh, and Iím also fond of the lyrics in this one.

9/10

Parama: Sigur Růs Ė HeysŠtan

So, first and foremost, this bandís name and their song titles are damn annoying to type. Iíve heard about Sigur Růs, obviously, but I think I havenít checked them because of non-English lyrics, and probably because the genre is quite outside my comfort zone. I feel like this song hasnít lived up to my expectations, because for apparent reasons the only thing I can think when I see the title is ďHey, Satan!Ē, and I expect some heavy distorted guitar slaughter with death metal growls all over it. But instead I get this nice, dreamy song. Itís not a bad thing, but it has the same problem of being unmemorable to me. I even struggle to write anything coherent about it. Not something I want to explore, I think, but nice enough for a few listens.

6/10

mikemangioy: Foo Fighters Ė Still

Thereís that problem with ballads, despite how touching the music and the subject may seem to some people, some other people will find the song boring. I know this is frustrating, and Iíve met this kind of thing when Iíve played in some roulettes before (and I probably will meet this again when I will play in yours), but you kind of knew what you were going for signing up for this one. And some ballads, like this, can be quite personal too, and the enjoyment depends on that. For me, well, this song is plain boring, it has almost nothing going on. I donít know, maybe it gives a nice breathing space in the albumís context, maybe something else, but as a standalone song, well, it doesnít have anything of interest to me. But, compared to your previous entry itís definitely better, because itís not some nearly unlistenable thrash. I was going back and forth between 4 and 4.5 for this song, and I think Iíll settle onÖ

4/10

Shadow Ninja 2.0: The Tallest Man on Earth Ė Like The Wheel

Iíve heard of this singer-songwriter guy, and while I wasnít meaning to check his work out, now I kind of have to, haha. Well, and this is actually quite lovely song. Its simplicity, tranquility and the vocals melodies with a quiet piano arrangement are all the huge advantages to me. But thereís one thing I really disliked about it: the way this guy actually sings the lines. Iíve found his way of singing, his enunciation or whatever this thing is called really annoying. Heís got a nice voice, the music is good, just fitting for ďballadĒ round, but the way he sings, wellÖ I almost canít stand it, and thatís very disheartening. Heís pulling some moments just fine, and on the other I wanted to turn this song off. It grew on me a bit, but itís still somewhat awkward. Itís a pity, this song couldíve been a nine, but because of that singing style, well, itís not a nine. But itís still a good one.

7.5/10

Standings with a cut line, which doesn't matter until we get past Round 6, so don't worry about it now (the second post in this thread is also updated):

bl5150 - 18.5
wolfking - 16.5
senecadawg2 - 16.5
lonestar - 16
Scorpion (with a guest appearance from TAC) - 15.5
Dr. DTVT - 14
___________

Parama - 13
Sacul - 13
Shadow Ninja 2.0 - 12
Tyrias - 12
ErHaO - 11
mikemangioy - 7

Overall, Top 6 stands unchanged. Brent is on fire so far, Kade and Seneca went up a few places, surpassing Mason and RJ. Scorp manages to keep the place TAC secured him in Top 6. However, the people beneath the cut line aren't far behind, Parama and Sacul are only one point behind, SN and Tyrias two points less. All it takes one good song from either of you, and some of the leaders to slip up, and there are still four rounds left until the elimination, so everything is possible so far, I think!

Additions to the banned list:

Lord
Mazzy Star
Xen
Ten
Dog Fashion Disco
Susanne SundfÝr
The Tallest Man on Earth
Boston (I forgot to add this one at the beginning)

And on we go to the round 3!

Round 3: Open

Once again, an open round. I think you know a bit more about my tastes now, so it should be a bit easier maybe. Send whatever you want! (preferably no thrash :lol)

The song limit for this round is 10 minutes once again.

Yes! I think I'm gonna continue with my strategy to just send you stuff you probably never would have checked out on your own if it works out like this ;D.  Also, you're in for a surprise if you check out the rest of the album, some of the other songs are quite different.

Well, to be honest, I would've never checked Biffy Clyro either, so I'm not sure it's such an infallible tactic.

 :lol

The funny thing is, I've got a feeling from my Top 50 thread you enjoy some prog metal and power metal too, but weirdly enough so far you've sent thrash and a mild rock ballad.

Yeah, but I sent that song because I thought you might like it (I still like it of course). I sent that Susanne Sundfor song because its one of the best ballads I heard and she's usually doing a genre you're not really listening to.

Expected a lower ranking - will send something you won't like now :neverusethis:. By the way, what's your take on Devin Townsend? And on pop?

considering I started with Diablo Swing Orchestra of all things I'm surprised you feel that
but I guess I'm trying to keep variety mostly? this round is one of the safer entries I have lined up to be honest
also I have it as WMA so I might need to convert it to MP3 whoops

things that suck:
the band I most want to enter is impossible to represent in one song, so I'm saving them for the two-song round, but I'm gonna get cut before then and then Evermind won't be exposed to them yay :V

the only song from either round I've listened to is the 9.5 one which I thought was good but didn't blow me away on first listen
not much blows me away on first listen tho

listen to dog fashion disco it'll blow you away unless you suck do you suck parama

Evermind: glad you liked it! And yes, definitely check out the band and album, but be warned that on average, their stuff is a lot more avant-garde and just generally weirder than that song. Still awesome though, but Desert Grave isn't exactly indicative of their sound as a band.

Sent as well! No obscure solo projects this time but a band with a more well known name (was kind of expecting this in the banned list, regardless of you liking it or not).

Regarding Devin Townsend and pop: I enjoyed Ki, Ghost and Casuaties more or less, otherwise I don't really like his work. Pop is good if you want to earn 1-3 points, but maybe you'll surprise me. I like PT's Trains, for example.

Regarding suites: I would prefer the single songs.

This is the band I wanted to check out for a long time, but somehow never did.
