it feels like all three roulettes ongoing tend to run at about the same pace though, the other two running while mine was running both finished within the same week or so  :lol

I'm just slowing down this one round because top50 writeups and stuff, will probably maintain my old pace afterwards.

yeah, just this round will be slow for me (it's finals weeks). I'd say over my two roulettes I've done pretty good :P

ROUND (What round is it?) RESULTS

Train of Naught: Distorted Harmony - Misguided
I don't say this that often, but I felt this song was too long. I really enjoyed the first 4-5 minutes, but eventually it just kind of tired me out. I think if they trimmed some of the stuff here, it could be a really solid 4-5 minute song, but as it is it just feels a little bloated.
Grade: 6.5

Tyrias: Anathema - Anathema
I got a couple Anathema tunes in my last roulette, but I think that was before this album came out. This was probably my favorite of the songs I got, it was pretty enjoyable all the way through. I will say that it was probably trying to be more epic than it actually was, but it was still pretty darn cool.
Grade: 7

Splent: Return to Forever - Sorceress
This was sort of similar to your last song, at least with the bass grove. I definitely liked the last one more though, and although this song had its moments, I didn't think there was anything super special about it. Still a good listen, but it didn't quite live up to the lofty expectations I had after your last song.
Grade: 7

Shadow Ninja: Lindsey Stirling - Shatter Me
This song was cool, and a lot of fun to listen to. Vocalist was awesome, really powerful and energetic. I'm not a huge violin fan, but some of the parts in this song were really awesome. The build-up in the intro was probably my favorite part. It was pretty epic.
Grade: 7.5

Senecadawg: Damien Rice - 9 Crimes
Yeah, this definitely was reminiscent of Bird of Sorrow. It had a very similar slow build-up to the big climax at the end, but in my opinion, it didn't quite reach the level of Bird of Sorrow. Still a pretty great tune, but it kinda just made me want to listen to Glen Hansard :P
Grade: 7.5

Scorpion: Nevermore - Passenger
This song was pretty darn heavy, with some great riffs. I really liked the spoken word sections, they were pretty great. Overall the song was pretty cool, although I felt it was a little repetitive at times.
Grade: 7.5

Sacul: Ulver: Lost in Moments
This song wasn't anything special if your eyes are open, but when you close your eyes it gets pretty freakin cool. Not sure if I've ever had a song quite like that before. Overall, there wasn't really one thing in particular that stood out, but as a whole it was a really interesting piece.
Grade: 7.5

Parama: East of the Wall - Naif/Linear Failure/My Favorite Society Guy
Wow, parts of this song were crazy heavy. Like trying to drag a truck through a swamp kind of heavy. And then some of it was not very heavy. That kind of contrast was really cool, and it made it a breeze to get through all 10 minutes of the song(s). So yeah, not much else I have to say, except thank you :lol
Grade: 8

Twas the round of the 7.5 scores.

STANDINGS
1. Splent - 37
2. Senecadawg - 36
2. Shadow Ninja - 36
4. Train of Naught - 35.5
5. Scorpion - 35
5. Sacul - 35
5. Parama - 35
8. Tyrias - 33.5

Nothing mind blowing this round, but nothing even remotely bad. I'm totally out of theme ideas, so let's do another open round, shall we?

don't talk like that when there's literally only 3.5 points between first and last  :lol

yeah, I guess that's right. but in this round the differnce between best and worst song was 1.5 points, so that would mean I have to send the best song for 3 consecutive rounds, while everyone else has to suck. And I doubt that's realistic.

Also, sending out-there stuff and seeing reactions is just a lot more fun :lol

For sure, I wouldn't have wanted it without you! The hell, I got some enjoyable electro-funk, ENERGIA, and dubstep-ish song, who woulda thought.
