i don't know his tastes in metal but i could see at least one of my potential entries just being outright hated by him  :lol

this is my fault for basically not submitting any metal last roulette tho
and bizkit didn't really submit any metal in my roulette, either

I'm making up my own label.  It's anti establishment rock, with rap undertones. :lol

I sent a pop to folks.  It's an album cut so I wonder how the Bizkit will like it or not.

one of the songs i'm thinking of for round 3 could get a 4/10 if bizkit doesn't like it

'cause there's like no middle ground on it imo

my ratings scale ended up too generous in the end and i'm going to fix that next time

i wanted like 5.5 or 6.0 to be absolute "meh" with anything being higher being like the lowest song I found "decent" but it ended up being like 6.5 was where entries started to toe the line between "meh" and "decent"
i'll try to keep the scoring more consistent next time I guess

This is pretty much how I'm doing it. 5.5-6.5 is "meh" 7-7.5 is good, 8-9 is great. Luckily so far I haven't gotten anything worse than "meh".

mostly i tend to generally ignore the tastes of whoever's roulette i'm in and just send whatever i want, though if there's a piece of their tastes plainly spelled out then usually i'll follow that rule for the most part

like i'm not sending instrumentals to anyone who says they don't like instrumentals  :lol

i'm super bad at listening to other peoples' entries, mostly because i'm way too lazy to seek them out myself

this is exactly why i linked everyone's songs in my roulette when i posted results, but this is a trend that unfortunately did not catch on  :P

Round 2 Results:

Shadow Ninja 2.0 Ė "Carnival of Rust" Ė Poets of the Fall

Alright man, this song just doesnít do much for me. I hate to use this word, but it almost has that generic kind of feel to it. Sometimes, that isnít a bad thing, but it just doesnít rub me the right way this time. Iím not a fan of the vocalist, and I honestly find this song a bit boring. I wish I could like it as much as you, because I feel like it is a well-made song, I just donít find it appealing to my ears. Though, really, itís not a bad song, it just falls in the meh, category for me.

6/10


Parama Ė ďA Gentleman CallerĒ Ė Cursive

ďThe fuck?Ē was my first thought when listening to this. Iím still unsure how I really feel about it. Itís got some cool parts, but some flat out weird parts. The beginning makes me want to slam my head on an ice sculpture, but maybe thatís good? This is definitely the weirdest of all entries, and Iím not really surprised to be honest. Thereís some cool sections at the beginning of the song, the mini riffs are nice, and the vocals are decent in a certain loosey goosey garage band kind of way. The second half of the song is definitely better though, and it makes up for the ďokayĒ first half. The vocals improve, and the strings give it a nice buildup moment. Itís definitely a strange choice, but much more deserving than a four.

6.5/10


kingshmegland Ė "Ladybird" Ė Tears for Fears

Wait, this is the same band that did Everybody Wants to Rule the World? Interesting, this sounds completely different. The chorus of this one is absolutely fantastic, as thereís just so much energy. Something about the atmosphere makes me want to just flap my wings and fly into the sky, like a bird, maybe Iíll be Manbird. I donít really know how this band sounds considering the two Iíve listened to sound completely different from one another. My favorite part is surely the chorus and just the vocals in general, cool tune.

8/10


Tom Bombadil Ė ďThe New Auld Lang SyneĒĖ Less Than Jake

I know Iíve heard of this band somewhere, and this song sounds strangely familiar, maybe from a Tony Hawk videogame or something. Punk is a hit or miss genre with me, but in this case, it works. Itís a fun, quick song, like most punk, and I really like the vocals. Heís got the kind of aggressively unserious singing style, if that makes any sense.  Itís a pretty silly track, but they have a tight sound, and I like the inclusions of the brass instruments. My favorite part of it is probably the introduction, actually. Cool song for sure.

8/10


splent Ė "Beginnings" Ė Chicago

What Iíve heard of Chicago I really love, especially 25 or 6 to 4. One thing I really appreciate about this band is their fusion of rock and jazz into one, itís great stuff. The vocals on top make it even better. Everything in this song is just really, really good, and for some reason Iím having a hard time putting it into words why I enjoy it so much, just that it has that good olí classic rock feel to it, with more cool vibes from the brass instruments and other percussion instruments. Cool song, and yet, another band I need to check into more.

8.5/10


Scorpion Ė "Morpheus" Ė Steve Rothery

I love me some good atmospheric, instrumental rock. This is not something I really listen to often honestly, but it does make for some really good study and driving music (both not at separate times of course). The guitar work is fantastic, and the addition of the good drumming and piano melodies make this a fantastic piece of music. From start to finish, this song is a fun, smooth ride, and it keeps me interested for the eight minute entirety.

9/10


Train of Naught Ė ďArchitect of FortuneĒ Ė Circus Maximus

Oh here we go, another praised band on this site that I have yet to check out. Iíve heard them described as a ďwatered downĒ Dream Theater, or maybe some prog metal-by-the-numbers, but Iím going to give it my own description. I can definitely hear some DT influence in this, but thatís definitely not bad. The guitar solos are really clean and fresh sounding to me, and it has some very cool structure changes. If I had to choose a weaker link, it would be the vocals. They arenít bad, but they donít necessarily stand out to me. However, the music is really awesome, so that kind of outweighs that. I will say the vocals are much better than many progressive metal bands Iíve listened to. Really the only two in that genre I listen to regularly are Dream Theater and Haken, so itís clearly not one of my favorite genres despite my love for those two bands. Maybe Iíll add some Circus Maximus though, this song kicks ass for sure. I love the solo at 7:10, I keep coming back to that. Nice song.

9/10


Elite Ė "Grace" Ė Jeff Buckley

Iíve been meaning to check out Buckley for a long time, and the only thing I ever heard from him was Hallelujah. Based on this song, I can already tell heís a great vocalist and guitarist. This song really has kind of a haunting atmosphere to it, and I didnít expect that. The guitar work is excellent and not excessive, and his singing is top notch, as his high notes are incredible. Heís definitely one hell of an influential musician, itís a shame he had to die so young. This song is great, and one of the best of this round. Iím definitely going to be listening to this album soon, Iím very eager to hear it.

9.5/10


Sacul Ė "Where We Start" Ė David Gilmour

Gah, David Gilmour. Heís my favorite guitarist of all time, but strangely, Iíve been procrastinating about listening to his solo work, and boy was I missing a lot. This is everything I love about Pink Floyd, but just Gilmour, and itís perfect. Something about his playing just really gets to me, his tones, just the way he plays. Iíve always been a huge fan of his soft and relaxing vocals as well. This song is amazing in every regard. Sometimes when listening to Gilmour, I can really hear where Steven Wilson gets some of his influences from. This stuff is just perfect. It takes me away into a world in which I donít want to leave.

10/10


Senecadawg2 Ė "Bird of Sorrow" Ė Glen Hansard

Wow, this is pretty much the definition of gorgeous. The soft piano melody, delicate vocals, and warming lyrics combined together make this one a gem. It only gets better as it goes on, and I really do find myself wondering what my favorite thing about it is, whether itís the music, vocals, or lyrics. I guess thatís what is so great about this song. The climax of it is perfection, with the string arrangements and the emotional vocals mixing together. This is a style of music Iíve never really given much attention, but I feel like Iím starting to really appreciate it, and Iím very eager to check out more. Great! P.S. It's also my favorite song of the round.

10/10




Another great round, though it's a bit of a wider range this time.


Standings after Round 2:

1. Sacul (20 Points)
2. senecadawg2 (19 Points)
3. Elite (18 Points)
3. Train of Naught (18 Points)

okay anyways the two songs i was deciding between for next round were "the dissonant one" and "the melodic one" and since you apparently hate dissonance i know where to go next, awesome  :lol

and i don't really think a gentleman caller is that weird honestly but blah i guess it could be

sacul sent me that gilmour song after my roulette ended and i thought it was alright but maybe i should go listen to it again
bird of sorrow is fantastic and completely deserves the 10/10 tho, especially by your scoring scale  :lol
i'm p. sure i've heard that jeff buckley song before but i can't recall it off the top of my head so i guess i'll look it up later

sending in a minute, then
