I wish I was a part of this so bad.   Gotta love when a full third of the initial impressions are "WTF".  :)

You are way to old for this roulette. Next time I gather the geezers I'll let you know!  ;D

You don't want me sending UFO, Alice, and Deep Purple?  :)

UFO and Alice are always good. But if One Track Mind is any indication, you'd probably send me their worst songs anyway.  ;D

oceans of slumber

Winter is a great song! (even if the album itself doesn't quite measure up to how perfect that song is)

 :heart :heart :heart
Yeah, guess which song I sent

But yeah the rest of the album isn't as good though there are still a number of good tracks

It IS the "Confrontational Roulette", after all.   I like Parama's roulette, other than the fact that I am so out of step musically with everyone else in the roulette (I make it a point to listen to all the other submissions each round, in case I like something.  Like 97% of the time in this roulette, I don't. :)).   To his credit, he puts a lot of thought into the write-ups, and while the score almost always is directly to "I like it" (or not) the write-ups show that he puts the time and effort into listening to whatever shit* gets submitted to him.  Got to respect that. 

* I say that based on my scores alone.  :)

Parama sent me an Oceans of Slumber song back when I did my roulette too.  I did not like it at all, never heard another song by them after that.  Just not for me.

So I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their Round 1 submissions. Some really cool stuff and I am very happy with what I have.

After three listens, I know the two at the bottom and two at the top. Everyone else is in the middle. This round did not disappoint. I knew there was a reason (other than too many beers) for starting this thing.

I like it too and I participated three times, like half of my total roulette participations. Rounds are fast, he writes the longest writeups and there are other great things like hangmanen, secondary judges like in the last one, etc.
I was only surprised by Tac first impressions

yes, worship me, my minions  :hat

sent off some more brief writeups about the stuff I sent to you, TAC. Will try to figure out where exactly I want to use the wildcard but I will definitely be using it at some point, just for the purpose of being able to send 9 songs instead of 8

I wouldn't be. I posted those off my first listen, almost immediate reactions. I will continue to do so.

After four listens, things seem to be settling into order.


My plan is to have Results up late Friday.




These first impressions are more sincere than Parama ones

Not like any of us will know - I saw them open with Evergrey and Voyager.  The thing that sucked most is that their time on stage took away from time I could've been seeing Borealis!  The latter only had 25 minutes, which was both awesome, but sucked that it was so short.

True story. When I was a kid, a friend of mine wrote the band and their bass player wrote a letter back. As in hand written. Pretty cool.
They had some cool tunes.
