Thanks man .............I knew you had taste from your Top 50 , hence my shock entry  ;D   This is the first time I've been anything other than about last in a roulette - hence the "humble submission" line in my PM.   Not humble any more though  :hat 

You are right to associate it with the Serious Black track.............same vocalist and (I'm guessing) that track is likely a leftover from the Trail of Murder album.  My rating?   Let's say 99% and quite possibly my favourite metal album of the last decade. So it's no "one song wonder" you'll be glad to know. 

Ballads............wow.   I have dozens of ridiculously good ballads , so very hard to choose.  Everything from 10 min epic (sappy) ballads to djenty, thrashy ballads with a classical interlude.  :neverusethis:    Seriously though - toughest round to pick here I reckon.

if Sava weren't on your list "When The Crowds Are Gone" would've been in contention.

Will get something to you tonight.


PS You stated that the Enbound guys don't joke around.

Here's a photo of them   ;D

Anyone who knows me will know what song I sent based on this clue:

The saddest, most depressing, soul crushing song ever.

I thought about reminding you of that, even though I mentioned that song in the first post, but yes, this song isn't allowed. :lol

Brent, I also said that gilded men are revolting. :lol Well, they're not joking around with music at least.

Second round sent. Mapped out all the other rounds, and I gotta be honest, you guys are kinda fucked in this one. If you just wanna lift up your skirts and get it over with now, I'd understand....

Excluding me, apparently. ;)

Well, I've just offered TAC to send every song for remaining seven rounds in advance. If he refuses, I'll be alright with you Scorp filling the slot, but of course you'll have to get TAC's agreement first.

Alright, so, we need Kade's song (and he promised to send it in the morning), and if TAC doesn't answer in 24 more hours, we'll proceed either with Scorp (if, again, TAC agrees), or with eleven players. Anyway, I'm so eager to listen to the stuff you've sent me, guys.

First listening is done. Lots of different stuff again, quite a lot of singer-songwriter music, some ambient tunes, proggy upbeat ballads, some awesomeness, all is here, you name it. Some outsiders can count on a very good score, some leaders might find themselves disappointed, but remember, this is only the first listen! Plenty of time for some songs to grow on me.

So far, the ranking range is:

4.5 - 9.5

And trying to increase the tension and to tease you just a little bit more, here are few of my first thoughts about some songs:

Quote from: Evermind's first thoughts about certain songs
This is like some ambient stuff. Really, I don’t know, enveloping stuff. I listen to this kind of music sometimes when I’m in the mood.

Quote from: Evermind's first thoughts about certain songs
Ten seconds in, and I already quite like this one.
More seconds in, and I’m in love with this one.

Quote from: Evermind's first thoughts about certain songs
There's that quiet intro, but so far it’s not a ballad, in my opinion, at least. Let’s see how it goes further, huh.

Quote from: Evermind's first thoughts about certain songs
It’s definitely good and I’m probably giving a low score for it now, but I need to see if it will grow with the subsequent listens. It definitely has a potential.

And then there's that...

Quote from: Evermind's first thoughts about certain songs
This is one of the best songs I’ve heard in the last few years.

Yay, a 4.5 ;D. Now that I think it, what I sent you is quite risky (hit or miss) and there's some serious chances you'll dislike it or feel meh at the very least. But I could have sent worse stuff so what the hell.

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
