The TAC Roulette- Final Results!!!
« on: April 24, 2015, 03:51:39 PM »
Looking for 8 victims.

IN:
Jingle Boy
b5150
Kingshmegland
Big Hath
Evermind
jjrock88
Wolfking
Senecadawg2
Lonestar

Rules..
1.   Nothing complicated.  8 people, 8 rounds.
2.   No eliminations
3.   Themed rounds and a couple open rounds
4.   Scoring from 1-10 points per song
5.   Schedule likely to be this, as how it jives with my work schedule. Submissions in by Tuesday PM and I’ll have the results the following Monday
6.   Like Kirknosehair, I plan on making CDs of each round to listen to in the car. I can rip from Youtube so youtube links really will work best.
7.   My ask when submitting  a song is to please include Album name and year and if possible the band lineup. This will be necessary for the Guitar Hero round. I’m interested in the supporting musicians as well. Same for the Savatage round, as I know they have had lineup changes.
8.   I will ship the TAC Roulette CD Set to the winner!!!!! That’s the prize!
9.     If you are torn between 2 songs for a round, I will allow everyone to use a Wild Card, which means you can send two, and I'll use the best one. You can only use this Wild Card ONCE and this option, for obvious reasons, will NOT be available for the Winger Round.
 
Round 1..Kick my ASS Round!
Submit a track that will knock me out. Consider how an opening track of an album or a concert sets the tone. That’s what I’m looking for here.

Round 2..Savatage Round
Savatage is a band that I cannot get into. I need some convincing. And sorry Chad, no TSO.

Round 3..Guitar Hero Instrumental Round
The only Guitar Instrumental albums I have belong to Michael Schenker and Uli Roth. I know there are TONS of great albums out there. Let me hear them.  And while Steve Vai is most certainly allowed, please don’t send me The Attitude Song. I have that.

Round 4..Open Round

Round 5..Winger Round
You assholes wanted it, you got it! I suppose this saves me the trouble of disqualifying everyone at the same time because I know you guys were going to play shenanigans.
Why is Round 5 the Winger round? Because sucks has five letters. So does blows.  So does queer.

Round 6..Open Round

Round 7…Live Round
Must be a selection from a Live Album. No time limit.

Round 8…Epic Round
It’s not a DTF Roulette without an Epic Round right? 10-15 minute time limit here.

As most of you guys know, I am not a fan of growls so send at your own risk.

 :lol   I would just like to thank Tim for the opportunity to start this discussion weeks, if not months, before the actual roulette.

I was looking for the official Winger thread, might as well make this a new one by the looks of it.  ;D

Rankings;

Pull
Better Days Comin;
Winger
Karma
IV
In the Heart of the Young

The new one was really excellent.

I honestly can't remember much about their last one at all - only listened once or twice.

Looking at my ratings it'd be something like this...

1) Pull
2) Karma
3 Winger
4) Better Days Comin
5/6)  IV and In The Heart of the Young.

it looks like we're pretty much in line aside from the new one.

I wonder if there are any other people who can't take Winger seriously because of Beavis and Butt-head?  I would put myself in that crowd.

Give it another listen one day, it's good.  Can't complain with your top 3 obviously.

I think the majority of people would list Pull as their favorite. I'm not a big fan of the band, but that's a good album

All of them, because:

A) TAC wouldn't know a good band if it fell out of the sky, landed on his face, and started to dance
B) Paul Taylor's hair
C) Dixie Dregs
D) They're awesome
E) D

Hint:  It's E.

I submitted my answers but didn't give me the answers.  Some weird questions there too.  Just noticed in the categories this quiz is under Atlantic Records Artists.  lol, at least I know I got that answer right.

Pull is their best and most mature work.  I don't think you can go wrong with that one.  If your more a metal hard rock type, go Pull, Karma and Better Days Comin.'  If you like your glam you might like the debut.

From what I've seen of those shows on Youtube he does a great job.

What are you hoping Tim will do King? - stage a protest out the front of the venue?  ;D
