Pseudo genre :lol it's practically shoegaze with black metal elements (blast beats, shrieking vocals, tremolo picking...)

Just kidding. I wrote pseudo because people create new genres every day and some of names are laughable :lol but to be honest blackgaze is good name for Alcest and similar bands. Post-black metal is also cool name for subgenre.

i like the name "blackgaze" better but "atmospheric black metal" and "post-black metal" both work  :lol
blackgaze is just much more succinct

i really don't think anyone is going to be very happy with the results this round and for that I am sorry  :(
I am gonna try to finish this tonight and do writeups because tomorrow I'm busy the first half of the day and will be in a cruddy mood for the second half of the day, so.

random thought: i should've given spanish sahara a 9.5

You know, you can always go back and give bonus points.  ;) Lots of other people (myself included) have done that in past roulettes.

Why are you going to be in a bad mood tomorrow afternoon?

tomorrow i have to drive 90 minutes both ways to go to my former college's career fair bcuz i still need to get a job, and 1. driving is stressful 2. career fairs are stressful 3. i am literally dying from stress right now

i am really pleased that most of the songs this round are pretty chill tho, aggressive metal stuff would probably kill me right now  :lol

and maybe i'll use the break to go back and rescore songs i felt i messed up a little, i'll set a strict rule of not moving anything more than 1 point either way though so i don't turn a 7 into like a 4  :lol

Sorry to hear it. Similar situations- career fairs more so than driving- always stress me out, too. I hope it goes well.

Round 5 Results:

Shadow Ninja 2.0: Now, Now Ė Thread

First Impressions: Okay, so, the funny thing, apparently this gets compared to Death Cab For Cutie a lot? At least from what Iíve looked up. This, to me, isÖ ummÖ the same indie rock song Iíve probably heard somewhere else and wasnít too taken with. I canít really find anything here that strikes me as something new, something fresh, itís all fine and pleasant enough but, just very inoffensive.

Final Thoughts: This probably suffers from the fact that another board that runs a music-listening kind of thing like this has this kind of song in it so goddamn often that I am just entirely null to this flavor of indie rock. I canít say that it does anything bad in any way, other than that it completely fails to interest me. It has decent atmosphere, it has pleasant vocals, itís not overly long, itís justÖ tame. And thereís no real emotional pull for me here, so this just feels like another dime-a-dozen indie rock track to me. Sorry.

Score: 6/10



Train of Naught: Seether ft. Amy Lee Ė Broken

First Impressions: I feel like I recognize both these voices, though I know Iíve heard at least some of Seether before, somewhere??? This is like, totally fine, but itís again, pretty inoffensive. The kind of thing I wouldnít turn off it if came on the radio, but nothing Iíd ever actively seek out. It kind of makes me feel like post-grunge never really shouldíve been a thing because we already had enough grunge to begin with.

Final Thoughts: The context I have to compare this with is the Shinedown song from round 2. Especially, the vocals. Because both of them are using the same grungy kind of singing (this is post-grunge, after all). And goddamn, does the Shinedown singer just absolutely blow Seetherís singer out of the water.

Also the female singer is apparently the Evanescence chick. I shouldíve guessed. Sheís okay. I can only think of one Evanescence song off the top of my head (Bring Me Back To Life) and she was decent there too.

Musically this is okay, but not really that special, and those strings sound fake as heck. This is still a little powerful at times, but itís not especially compelling, and again, I feel like this kind of song is a dime a dozen.

Score: 6.5/10



425: Death Cab For Cutie Ė We Looked Like Giants

First Impressions: The first thing that immediately jumps to mind is ďIím not sure how much Iím going to like this singerĒ. Not horrible at all, really, justÖ a voice that kind of irks me and I canít explain why. I think the problem here is going to end up being, a lot of enjoyment from this song depends on the singer, the instrumentation is nice on its own but doesnít strike me as too special, the piano is okay and the opening riff is okay, but nothing thatís blowing me away, or even really impressing me much.

Final Thoughts: Will be completely honest that this probably wasnít a good choice to send based on the subject matter alone. Itís not something I can emotionally connect with at all and itís a bit uncomfortable for me, honestly. Sexual stuff, no thank youÖ the lyrics feel a bit too personal, too, a bit too specific and oversharing.

Now that the awkward part is out of the way, what of the rest? Well, I like the guitar line in the intro. Itís compelling and kind of catchy, and itís unique to this song. The entire second half of the song seems to just want to jam on some chords and a piano line, which would be fine, exceptÖ yeah, that goes on way too long, this is another case of ďcut a minute off this pleaseĒ because I like it for a minute but I donít really like it anymore after two minutes of the same thing. It doesnít even have anything to build to either, the song just kind of dies out at the end of that. This is a decent song if I ignore the lyrics, I suppose, but I donít feel too strongly about it in the end.

Score: 6.5/10



Sacul: Ed Harrison Ė Annul

First Impressions: Those voices are super unnerving, but Iím not sure if itís in a good way. This seems a bit awkwardly start-stop at times and while the atmosphere does tend to work decently well, it ends up feeling a bit incohesive. Still, I think itís pretty alright, donít know if it will end up being one of my favorites this round though.

Final Thoughts: I think you were going for ďhauntingĒ again, but this ends up more ďunsettlingĒ than anything else, to me. Itís probably the voices mostly to blame for that, but the bassline also adds to the feel, especially with how persistent it is throughout the entire song. And I donít really see this as ďambientĒ, it seems closer to electronica than anything. Which isnít necessarily a bad thing.

I guess what this is going to come down to is the percussion. ItísÖ ehh. The stop-start nature of it when it basically controls the feel of the song seems a bit off. It switches between being frantic and between being more sluggish, and while I find myself preferring the sluggish feel, the real issue I have is how it comes in and out so often in the second half. The flow of the song just gets completely jerked about by the drums coming in slow, disappearing, coming in fast, disappearing, coming in slow again. And then thereís the fact that, well, it doesnít really have a build, and it doesnít really feel too diverse over the course of its 6-and-a-half minute runtime. I wouldíve preferred this track to be maybe two-thirds this long, or even as short as half as long.

Maybe Iím being super nitpicky with this one, but in the endÖ

This is background musicÖ if I donít pay attention to it too well then itís a fairly enjoyable listen, for that purpose, and itís a soundtrack song, again, and for a game, where most of the music tends to be background music. And it probably serves that purpose well! Itís just not that great as active listening music.

Score: 6.5 (+.5 Bonus) = 7/10



senecadawg2: Clint Mansell Ė Death is the Road to Awe

First Impressions: This is certainly aÖ strange choice for a roulette. I really donít think itís going to work out for you, I donít think Iíve ever been interested in movie soundtracks. And while this is a fairly fine piece on its own, it lacks context, and without context, it canít really reach the power and depth it would be able to otherwise. The instrumentation is solid, thereís plenty of string presence and thereís some decent build to it. I can see why you would choose this specific song, but without the context, it ends up feeling a bit meandering and I canít really connect with it. Decent, thoughÖ?

Final Thoughts: I just have a hard time finding this to be too enjoyable as a song by itself becauseÖ yeah, it sounds super soundtrack-y. Itís also kinda post-rock-y which is I assume why you sent it, I wonít go saying itís completely pointless as a standalone track because it isnít.

That being said, I donít have much to say about this. The main motif is a 5-note melody that just repeats a lot, in different octaves, at different volumes. I get tired of it pretty quickly. And itís a pretty long track. It does build well and it gets pretty ďepicĒ at times.

But the second half does a sort of stop-start thing that, Iím sure works well in the context of a movie and fits the scene, but as a song, -that- kind of thing exactly is what steers me away from soundtracks. They have to fit the context of a movie, game, tv show, etc., more than they have to stand on their own, so stuff that may work really well in context doesnít work well at all out of context. Twice it kind of dies out only to go right back to being loud.

I dunno man. In theory, I like this, and I bet itís really cool in context. But I canít really connect with it much. Meh.

Score: 7 (+.5 Bonus) = 7.5/10



Tomislav95: If Trees Could Talk Ė The First Fire

First Impressions: Post-rock is a genre that I always enjoy listening to but never can really find much to say about. Itís got some good atmosphere and some nice buildup, a very melancholic sound overall, and itís relaxing. But thatís what I can say about most post-rock.

Final Thoughts: The drumming is the highlight of this one for me, I think. The drums do a lot of different stuff that keeps things fairly interesting, compared to standard post-rock. But everything else here, really, just feels like the same kind of stuff I hear other post-rock bands do. Clean or lightly distorted tremolo picking, several layers of pretty but non-descript guitar parts, a dreamy atmosphere. The bass line is a bit compelling at first but it gets kind of beat into the ground by the end.

Post-rock is a genre I tend to listen to for only a few select purposes, and for those purposes, itís really good. Background music for when Iím working on something else. Music for long car rides where I want to relax. Sleeping music. Hammockís Departure Songs is an album that tends to be a favorite for these purposes, in that it isnít exactly what Iíd call a unique or astounding album, but it serves the purpose of being very dreamy, pleasant music very well. This is a fairly decent song by that standard, but as with other post-rock, fails a little in the active listening department. That being said, I may end up checking out this album anyways.

Score: 7.5/10



FlyingBIZKIT: Boards of Canada Ė Dayvan Cowboy

First Impressions: I really donít remember anything about this song, other than I know Iíve heard it before like, once or twice, a long time ago. I probably know why I liked it, itís very post-rockish with a long buildup in the intro. The second half especially, a very full percussive atmosphere with the other instruments filling in the empty space. Though the keyboard thing feels a bit dissonant there, but not a huge detractor.

Final Thoughts: Out of all the instrumental post-rocky songs this round, I think this one did the most for me by a slight margin. Mostly, I think it just captures a sense of build-up the best. The fuzzy atmosphere of the song helps a lot, too.

Also I lied the keyboard is fine, first-listen me was dumb I guess. Though at a point it does kind of reach a peak that I think it could go beyond but never does. Itís a very pleasant listen though, for as simple as it is.

Score: 8/10



mikemangioy: Symphony X Ė King of Terrors

First Impressions: Brief comment about how my wishlist doesnít necessarily mean Iíll like something, but. I am prepared for the cheese, nonetheless, because apparently this band is cheese to the extreme. The groove that starts about a minute in is pretty cool, simplistic as it is. And the rough edge to the vocals, too, is something I really like. The production on this track is reallyÖ rough, for 2002, though, haha. The slow breakdown with the synths going crazy on top creates a pretty cool effect, too. Thereís a lot ofÖ parts here, that I like, but taken as a whole it doesnít do as much for me, though I imagine with more listens that could easily change.

Final Thoughts: This ends up occupying the same slot of ďthis is a cool metal song, but it isnít quite good enough to make me hyped about seeking out more from this bandĒ. On the other hand, whereas Iíve heard a fair few other Nightwish songs before, I havenít really listened to any Symphony X, so you could make a fan out of me yet.

That being said, this seems to be pretty halfway between power metal and prog metal. I really dig how the triplet-feel riff evolves into a standard feel riff in the verse, that kind of thing is a prog thing I love seeing. The chorus strikes me as a bitÖ ehh, though. The drums are doing the good olí double bass thing, the chords arenít Ėthat- powerful, the vocals are okay, the lyrics seem a bit cheesy (which I expected).

The instrumental break is probably my favorite part, the time signature madness goes through staccato, palm muting, and full-sounding notes with the same kind of structures. The way the synth runs are used in contrast to the relatively sluggish feel of the rest of the band works well, they add texture to the guitar crunch. Really donít dig that solo at all, though. Itís just shreddy and pointless. Couldíve done without that.

Score: 8/10



LordCost: Mr. Bungle Ė Ars Moriendi

First Impressions: I have heard vague whispers of the weirdness of Mr. Bungle, I guess itís time to experience it firsthand. And yep, what the hell is this. I donít know if this is the ďbestĒ song in the roulette thus far (answer: itís not, at all) but itís definitely the ďmostĒ in one category. Honestly I just have trouble following this at all. It doesnít sit on any ideas at all and instead bombards you with new ones every few seconds, itís a bit overwhelming.

Final Thoughts: Okay, my enjoyment of this one is definitely going to suffer from the roulette format. Iíd need at least 10, if not more, to really ďgetĒ this song, I imagine. The eclectic instrumentation, the constant need for new ideas, itís very quirky and very unique. Itís overwhelming. I am overwhelmed by this, and not in exactly the best way. At the very least, there are a few melodies to keep it a little bit grounded. And I canít say I dislike any of the ideas being presented. I just wish it would sit still for a moment so I could have any point of entry into this.

The entire first half seems to have a sense of a slow build to a middle section where the song explodes, then goes off and gets a lot faster-paced. The song is very dynamic though, a lot of louder bits, a lot of softer bits. Tons of instruments represented here, I wouldnít even be able to begin to name them all, I canít even tell.

I have to wonder though, if all of the instruments are needed, or if itís just a gimmick? I really donít know. This is hard for me to rate because I still donít feel Iím too familiar with it, even after five listens. It feels stronger than a 7.5 but weaker than an 8, and Iím not letting myself have any middle ground between the twoÖ nor do I let the bonus half point affect my rankingsÖ going to cautiously go with the latter because I can see this growing on me if I had time to give it more listens.

Score: 8 (+.5 Bonus) = 8.5/10



Elite: maudlin of the Well Ė Gleam in Ranks

First Impressions: I think I listened to both this album and Bath once a while back but I remember them beingÖ both pretty schizophrenic and all over the place, but overall pretty enjoyable. I think this taps in pretty well to my recent musical mood (though, since it was on my wishlist, not a huge surprise). Itís got atmosphere, energy, and plenty of heaviness, and thereís a pretty nice flow to the whole thing. It does kind of justÖ end, though, haha.

Final Thoughts: Itís really a miracle how all the disparate elements of this song mix together into making a wholly unique as well as pretty compelling song. The piano runs, the swelling synths, the pretty guitar lines, the chugging riffs. There are a lot of little touches that really elevate this, I feel, that really makes the song demand attention. Thereís a slow build going on too, the background slowly filling up with more and more noise over the course of the song, the vocals getting more and more intense as everything else builds.

And thenÖ it does really just cut off abruptly after the shreddy guitar bit in the background. Iím not so sure about that ending, it feels a bit anticlimactic. Still, the ride is great, so I canít fault it for only really getting a bit weaker right at the end.

Score: 8.5/10



Current Standings:
mikemangioy Ė 43
Sacul Ė 42.5
senecadawg2 Ė 41.5
Tomislav95 Ė 40
Elite Ė 40
425 Ė 38.5
FlyingBIZKIT - 38
LordCost - 33
Train of Naught Ė 32.5
Shadow Ninja 2.0 - 27.5

No rush to get your round 6 entries in, I'm not even going to touch them until next Monday at the earliest.
I think what I will do is go over some entries that I feel scored a bit too low. I think I'll leave any scores that I felt were a little too high, though. I feel it would be too mean of me to lower people's scores, even if there are a few I probably should. Don't expect a huge amount of bonus points, and nothing from round 5 will be rescored except maybe Mr. Bungle, probably none from round 4 either. Mostly though I need a break + i have several albums i need to give a number of dedicated listens to :lol

Ah no! My strategy of "get decent scores and hope that works" is slipping!

I really love that song, but I totally understand your explanation of why you don't like it nearly as much. :tup

I only have the one album The Odyssey, but I think King of Terrors is kind of an odd Symphony X choice. Certainly not the one I would have sent from that album.

Finally, I think taking a break is a good idea. I would have done the same in mine if I hadn't been so damn slow.

the break also thankfully coincides with the music shindig over at the other forum i frequent so i'll have to listen to a lot of songs there anyways (though usually I get less good stuff out of 25 songs there than I do 10 songs in a roulette round, so  :lol )

but i do need it, especially since i might have to be dealing with job opportunities calling me or e-mailing me this week yeah aahhh im dying

also funny story: i put mono on in the background while finishing up preparations for tomorrow, i.e. "this is what I use post-rock for"  :lol
never gave their two most recent albums enough listens but I wasn't really too taken by either of them, meh

I feel like Gleam in Ranks serves as a good song introduce people to motW. It's not their best, but it's certainly more accessible than others. I considered sending 'They Aren't All Beautiful' as well, since I think that's a better track, but it's also a lot heavier, so I wasn't sure how it would fare. Glad you liked it! I'll find you an instrumental soon :)

I wanted to send Heaven And Weak from Bath in the first open rounds. I only know the songs in Bath, I'll listen to Gleam In Ranks soon.

I guessed correctly my first impression, but that "(answer: itís not, at all)" made me a bit worried. Glad you liked it!
Ars Moriendi isn't even their weirdest song haha! If it helps you to follow the song, I remember that a long time ago I recognized that the song follows a chain structure, not always rigid (something like ABACBCDCDE...), and maybe it's the reason why I found the song strangely cohesive considering his weirdness. If it's not true, at least almost every part is repeated two times..

I'm in real trouble for the instrumental round, I hope I don't have to repeat an artist already sent in this roulette

Good you didn't steal them earlier, although I am a little upset that you sent Ars Moriendi. I send that song in almost every roulette I'm in :lol
i don't have the PM anymore bcuz i needed to make room, but LordCost specifically mentioned that you always send that song in roulettes in his PM  :lol
:lol
After a 2 out of 10 I needed easy points, sorry!

I've never listened to Disintegration and thought oh wow, this is bright. Other Cure albums? Sure. But Disintegation? No way.
comment: the two specific songs, yes. the album as a whole, no. listening to it right now and I definitely wouldn't say it's bright, y'all just happened to send the two brightest songs of the bunch  :lol
i already knew fascination street too and knew that one was a lot darker, though
