Title: jingle.boy's Roulette v2 - That's all she wrote folks...another happy ending
Post by: jingle.boy on December 12, 2013, 10:46:47 AM
Step right this way. Everyone's welcome!

This is an open invitation to participate in my second Roulette.  Come one; come all.  I really like the way that Nem and Mason ran theirs, inviting any and everyone, then weeding it down to a managable number.  So, anyone is open to participate - even Sigz, Dark Castle and LieLow, who's musical tastes have about as much in common with mine as guns and butter.  But, I'll take the opening round with an open mind.  There will be two 'qualifying' rounds, and which point I'll weed the participants down to a group of 8 or 10... I haven't decided yet.  Depending on how many decide to participate, a bunch will be eliminated in round 1, and the remaining chunk to get it down to 8 or 10.  No ratings, no rankings... either you move on to the next round, or you don't.

If you do chose to participate... then please do so.  I'm not going to hold anyone's hand during this, or remind/chase down people who don't submit in a timely manner - and by timely, I mean within a couple of days.  My intention is for these first two rounds to take a week or so, then the main rounds to be under a week - 2 days for you to decide, 3-4 days for me to listen and writeup. As one of my old bosses used to say, this is the FIFO method - Fit In, or Fuck Off.   :lol

I plan to start the qualifying rounds within a week (with further details/instructions), so let me know if you're in (or at least interested).  There will be no themes, no restrictions of any kind.  The main rounds will have an added 'fun' element to it, but otherwise I'm trying to make this as straightforward as possible.

Hopefully there's more interest in this than there is obamacare, and I get more than 6 participants.  :lol  (Edit... wahoo!  accomplished).

Above all else... have fun.  I plan to.

As noted, I can't say for sure how much of my collection you WON'T be familiar with, but with open rounds and less restrictions on themes or times, like in other roulettes, I will be more free to submit my favorites.  I'll give it a shot.

Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends.  I'm so glad you could attend, step inside, step inside.

Why I'm doing this?  Mostly for shits and giggles.  Not really doing this to discover new bands, just listen to some awesome music, and have fun

Most of you know my musical tastes, but some pointers just in case:
Top 50 v1 (https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=29431.msg1164513#msg1164513)
Top 50 v2 (https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=35218.msg1560362#msg1560362) - the top albums I've discovered since joining DTF in '05
Top albums from 2013 (https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=39663.msg1705630#msg1705630)

Here's my last.fm (https://www.last.fm/user/jingle-boy/library?sortBy=name) again for you to check before submitting a band/song

Feel free to ask or try any band you like.  Since I'm not doing this to discover new bands, I'll pretty much take any song I don't know.  So, even though I have a lot of listens to Journey for instance, there's also a lot by them that I don't know.  However, I do retain the right to reject any submission if I know the band just a little too much.

Submission preference
1) mp3.  email me at chadrbelcher.. and I use gmail.  Or, upload to google drive, and PM me the link.  This way I can take it on the go in a playlist as I walk the jingle.dogs
2) Grooveshark or spotify
3) Youtube is a method of last resort, as the quality often sucks ass.
4) Round 2 will take place during the holidays.  So if you're not in a position to do any of the above, just give me the song name/title/band... if it's online somewhere, I'll find it.  If not, I'll let you know and you'll need to chose a different song.

Results
Round 1 will be posted no later than the 22nd
Round 2 will be posted no later than Jan 4th (extra time because of holidays)

One last thing.... this is a pretty hefty group of participants, and I know you all have something to offer that I'll love.  However, at least seven of you are going to be gassed after one submission; and another seven after round 2.  No hard feelings allowed.

Above all else.... HAVE FUN!

Yeah... when you see the details of the bands, the "# plays" should be a link.  Click that and you can see what songs... click the # of plays the individual song had, and you can see when it was scrobbled.

Also, anyone can join up until the end of Round 1.

Is there a way of seeing which songs you've heard by said band?
From the library (the link provided) just find the artist and click the number of plays shown under the picture to bring up the list of songs. It won't be sorted by number of plays but you can click "plays" to remedy that (probably could have figured that part out yourself, but there you go).

Shit, I have no idea what to send. :lol My competitive side is telling me not to send any of my good ideas because they might score high in the rounds after the qualifiers. On the other hand if I hold my punches I might be one of the whopping 14+ that don't make it through.

I'll send something tomorrow.

And if anyone else is confident enough in round one, and wants to send round 2 just in case things get crazy over the holidays, feel free to do so and I'll file the song away.

Anytime you want.  I won't listen until after Round 1 is complete though.  As promised, results will be on or before the 22nd.  Already have 2 or more listens to each submitted track so far.  One clear "best", 2 handfuls of great tracks, and the rest are all solid.  Gonna be tough to kick a bunch of you out, but it shall be done.

I have to admit to being impressed.  Very few people know about that album.  Excellent stuff.  I was equally impressed when I found out that hefdaddy loved the album as well.

I always found that the more obscure cock rock bands were actually really good. Bands like Little Angels, Tall Stories, Spread Eagle, Valentine, Electric Angels, XYZ, Giant, etc.  I could go on.   Actually Electric Angels' The Drinking Song and True Love & Other Fairytales are two awesome songs I still crank up on occasion.

I'd agree with all that, although I'm not familiar with Electric Angels. That Roxy Blue album is really good. There was plenty of great music around at the time- it just gets a bad rap because of the image. There were plenty of shit bands too.

Ok ass clowns, time for your judgement.  I don’t expect anyone has read this paragraph at first, I know how Roulette results work... you scrolled down until you found your name to see how you did.  Well, I tried to be a prick and make things a little more difficult for you.  Also, titty sprinkles.  Now that you're back reading this, and some of you know how you fared ... As I mentioned, there was a little something in every song I got – 23 submissions in all, so 6-7 of you will be exiting.  Some (while enjoyable) were fairly easy decisions.  Others were tough. 

One thing I failed to mention in the beginning was that I’ve designated about 20 or so ‘mystery’ bands that are on my ‘check-it-out’ list.  Anyone selecting those bands got an automatic pass into Round 2, whether or not I liked the song.  Three of you chose one of those bands.  Also, a few of followed my tried and true Roulette strategy – win if you can; lose if you must; but always cheat.  Three submissions were from vocalists I know and love.  Smart moves by you three.

Results are listed in no particular order.

Move along, nothing to see here.  See you in Round 2
Y&T/Forever – I doubt I need to say who submitted this one.  This was one of said ‘mystery’ bands... but it didn’t matter, this was an excellent track, the thin production value notwithstanding.
Bride/Everybody Knows My Name – Dat guitar riff!!!  Excellent blend of old-school sounding rock and metal
Subsignal/Where Angels Fear to Tread – Song #2 from a ‘mystery’ band.  Again, no matter as it kicked all kinds of ass.  There were a couple of short passages that lost my interest, but it was just a fleeting moment.
Silent Voices/Into the Flow – Kirk Gibson, 1988 vs the A’s.  Bottom of the 9th, full count, 2 outs.  With two bum knees, he cracks a walk-off Home Run.  Against this competition, to get a song that stood ahead of the rest is just as impressive.  Just listening to a couple more tracks on SoundCloud.  Purchase will definitely be made.
Enchant/Paint the Picture – Not only was this a ‘mystery’ band, but it was also with a vocalist I know and love in Ted Leonard.  I’ve been meaning to get into Enchant for a long time, and now I know why.
Dead Letter Circus/Lodestar - Liked the vocals plenty; nice smooth break in the middle.  The vocal delivery reminds me a lot of the Elysion song that ultimately bumped you to 2nd place in my first roulette.  Not sure why you were so worried.
Tyketto/Forever Young – I listened to Tyketto as a result of a last.fm recommendation, and was mostly unimpressed.  Clearly I picked the wrong song.  This was everything that I love about melodic rock
Disillusion/Fall – Killer opening riff, and then the song never let up.  Well done for being the "fresh fish".
Constantine/The Broken Remain – Other than the fact this was 20 minutes of awesome in packed into 10 minutes, I knew nothing about this band.  *googles*  “Concept Album”.  Oohh... full album up on Soundcloud!  Yeah, I sense a purchase may be forthcoming.
Thunderstone/Ghosts of Youth – Rick Altzi.  One of my favorite metal vocalists right now.  Recognized him instantly.  Wise choice.

Proceed directly to Jail; do not pass Go; do not collect $200

The Quest/Turn Away – had nice vocal melodies, but that’s about it.  Chorus was too damned repetitive, and there wasn’t anything that caught my attention
Hell/Darkhangel - unimaginative riffs, like they're being heavy just for the sake of being heavy.  Some good parts (the chorus), but the screaming aspect of the vocals turned me off - reminded me of why I never got into the HEAVY metal of the 80s.
Tame Impala/Elephant – you said you were gonna send some weird shit, and you did.  Was this what one would consider electronica?  It wasn't horrible, but wasn't the kind of thing that floats my boat these days.

The Cut Line (fate to be determined)
Voyager/ Lost – I went back and forth between liking it long time, and meh - not just the song in general, but during the song.
10cc/Art for Art's Sake – Again with the funkiness!?!?!  I really want to like this, but I’m having trouble.  I keep waiting for Christopher Walken to blurt out “moar cowbell”, cuz there’s lots of it here.  Really has a 70s disco vibe to it.
Smithereens/Behind the Wall of Sleep - Solid rockin tune... I’d expect nothing less,  Pretty straight forward... not a lot of imagination in this track.
The Panic Channel/Left to Lose – Great guitar riffs and a nice solo, but much like the previous song, not a lot of imagination.  Some moments felt very Zeppelin-ish.
Coheed and Cambria/Welcome Home – I’ve heard C&C a number of times on WPAPU, and been mostly unimpressed, so you were right to worry.  Vocal melodies feel more like chanting than melodies, and I wasn’t too fond of the staccato pace from the rhythm section.
The Ocean/Hadopelagic II: Let Them Believe – Dark and disturbed track.  I read up on the concept, and it seems pretty cool... not sure sending one of the latter tracks was the place to start on this album though.  I think I would enjoy this much more in the context of the entire album.
OmnisighT/Eleven - First half = meh; instrumental sections (especially the outro) were the redeeming qualities; reminded me a lot of Eumeria ... technical flashiness just for the hell of it.  I wasn't fond of the guitar tone.
DC Cooper/The Angel Comes – The last of the cheaters!  Love DCs voice, but the main keyboard tone was soft like a handshake from a wet sponge. 
Touchstone/The Witness (Pts 1 & 2) – This song felt like it could’ve been Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.  Lots of variety to this, and the transitions weren’t smooth at all.

Three or four of you on the cut line will be sent packing.

Final results to be posted later today if I get the chance.  If not, tomorrow morning.  Those on the cut line will just have to sweat it out a little longer.

No deal... just not a band I'd ever gotten around to.  And as Coz found out in my first roulette, neither was Dokken.  Although, Dokken was Coz's final submission back then (ie, he lost with it).  And Enchant... just always ended up being "later" as to when I'd get around to checking them out in depth.

btw, jingle, if I get through, what's your tolerance for ridiculously over-the-top power metal? I've got a couple of things I want to try...

Well, I have the discography of both Freedom Call and Rhapsody (of, and not of, Fire), and still spin them with some regularity.  If those two aren't "ridiculously over-the-top power metal", I don't know what is.

Dead Letter Circus/Lodestar - Liked the vocals plenty; nice smooth break in the middle.  The vocal delivery reminds me a lot of the Elysion song that ultimately bumped you to 2nd place in my first roulette.  Not sure why you were so worried.

Not sure who this band is as that wasn't a song from me, but nevertheless I thought the song may have been a bit too alternate for you, besides the melodies being incredible.  Glad you liked it.  I think something pretty strong and safe next.

Props to the other player who submitted Voyager, another great Aussie band.  I hope you get through, they are a quality band.

For all of the above tracks, there was more of this that I liked, than I didn’t.  Come on in to Round 2.  :panicattack:
For the below, :curtains:

Zydar: 10cc/Art for Art's sake – sorry... I’ll probably continue to listen to this, and eventually think exactly as I did with Gloria... super fun tune, and I feel bad for scoring it low.
SirGuitarCozmo: Smithereens/Behind the Wall of Sleep – Good track, just there was a lot more that was better.
senecadawg2: Coheed and Cambria/Welcome Home – you’re forgiven, but this tune wasn’t up to snuff.

Which leaves us with zook: Touchstone/The Witness (Pts 1 & 2)
I hear greatness in this song, and I am very intrigued by Touchstone.  The song itself will probably sound better with age.  So for that, you get a second chance.

To those that were on the cut line... you’ve got a bit of a hole to dig out of.  At most, 10 will participate in the main competition, and the competition is stiffer than grandpa with an empty bottle of Cialis.  You really need to wow me, or hope that one of the other tend lays a steamy turd this round.

Round 2 is open for business.  As I mentioned originally, due to holidays and such, results will be posted no later than Jan 4th... but if you're all as prompt as you were first round, earlier.

Constantine/The Broken Remain – Other than the fact this was 20 minutes of awesome in packed into 10 minutes, I knew nothing about this band.  *googles*  “Concept Album”.  Oohh... full album up on Soundcloud!  Yeah, I sense a purchase may be forthcoming.

This Broken Remain comes from their second album, Resign Due, which was released a month or so ago.
I submitted this in Kirk's Roullette last year:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmmdPdjEqxc
A track called The Darkest Grace from their first album Devine Design

Although I do Like Resign Due, Devine Design is much better and I'd start there. Hell, get 'em both!

Well, I forgot to send before I left.  I get back in town around the 30th.

4) Round 2 will take place during the holidays.  So if you're not in a position to do any of the above, just give me the song name/title/band... if it's online somewhere, I'll find it.  If not, I'll let you know and you'll need to chose a different song.

Or, if you still want to wait until next week, that's cool.

Listened to both from Spotify.  Think I dig Resign Due more after one listen.  I likely will get both - but can only find from iTunes right now.  Prolly wait to see if I get gift cards for xmas.

To add to that, I actually sent him private messages and messages on Facebook asking about his disappearance.. So far without reply, so this is very weird.

On topic of the roulette: tonight I'm back home for the first time in a week, due to Christmas at both parents and at my parents-in-law, so I'll send something tonight.

Five (or more) of you will not continue on in the new year.  Given how I want to run the main competition, I think I'll allow 11 in.  We'll see.

Okily dokily then... everyone's in for Round 2.  Some common themes emerge this round:

Four songs with "Fire" in the title... and only one of them is completely safe.
Two instrumentals... one safe; one questionable.
Two that sound very dated (at least, production wise)
Unfortunately, at least 3 good songs are going to result in an elimination.  :hung:  Dat's the way the cookie crumbles.

Results Thursday night, or first thing Friday.

All righty then... so results will come Thursday AND Friday.  Time for the mind fuck to begin yet again.  Some are definitely getting the axe, some are definitely safe, and some still could swing either way (and I'm not just talking about Zydar's "staff").

Who's in:

Band/Song
Animations/The Manhattan Project - Of all the songs with this title, I think I prefer this one the best.  Nice 10 minute instrumental
Pink Cream 69/Shame- quality melodic tune here.  Playing it a little safe to get to the competition round I assume though.  Better pick up your socks now.  This barely squeaked in.
Forward Shapes/Proclivity - really loved the female vocals here (except the chorus); killer instrumental - that arpeggio!  Great tune overall.  Now you can troll away!
Black Majesty/Firestorm - the only truly safe song with "Fire" in the title.  Very good power metal.  Not too over the top, nice mix of keys and guitar.  Solid vocals.  Again... kind of a safe choice.  Nothing overwhelming, but nothing underwhelming either.
Waysted/How The West Was Won - being a Zepp-head, I took this song just on the title alone (I was given the choice of two songs by this band).  good thing... loved it!  One of the better submissions, even though the production was a little dated/thin.
Justified/Temple of the Soul - another dated/thin sounding song vis-a-vis the production.  But no matter, really great melodies and overall musical blend of all band members.  You were right to have me focus on the bass line - during the outro, it was spectacular.
Lorenguard/The Prince and the Pariah - I give you a mulligan, and this is what you do with it?  Well played sir.  Very good use of your second chance.  One of the better tracks this round.

Who's out:

Nevermore/My Acid Words - I heard Nevermore the first time (and last, until this week) when they were touring with DT during Gigantour way back in '05.  Checked them out, and didn't like them.  This song didn't change my opinion.  Too thrashy for my tastes.  Musically they're very talented, but I was not fond of the vocals at all.
Pathfinder/Beyond The Space, Beyond The Time - boy, you weren't shitting me about being over-the-top cheesy.  Growls + operatic male AND female vocals + quad bass kicks + harsh vocals + random screams/wails = the pot purri of music.  Some parts were good (the chorus's were amazing), but overall this was just too much of a hot mess.
Alessandro Bertoni/Megas Alexandros Pt. 3: To the Ends of the Earth - you win the prize for the longest title, but this instrumental just didn't have anything holding it together, and never really established anything.  It was decent enough, just not up to snuff with the other submissions.

And the undecided - 6 of you fighting for 4 spots:

Find Me/Firefight - On first listen, it was pretty standard/run-of-the-mill Frontiers Records material.  It got better with subsequent listens.
Jolly/Firewell - I'd listened to the album before (it's not on my last.fm, as I streamed it from progstreaming.com).  With all the hype many have given it here, I was truly underwhelmed by it.  This song had moments that I did like though.  Good thing you had a home run in round 1.
Distorted Harmony/Kono Yume - on first listen, it was so-so; better after multiple listens.  Starts kinda meh, but picks up pretty quickly.  I wasn't overly high on the vocals, but musically this was an easy A.
Lethal/Fire in your Skin - Great intro, and then explodes with some nice metal vocals... Very 80s Halford/early Tate like in the delivery with the vocals very high in the register.  But I was never much of a Halford fan.
Kingcrow/Right Before - Very good...  great intro, excellent chorus.  Really dig the vocals.  By itself, this would get you into the next round, but you laid a bit of a stinker in round 1.
Apple Pie/Gates of Never - some good, some not so good; intro was pretty good, and I loved the outro.  In between was kinda meh.

So the $64,000 question for some of you is this; do I just go on this round's performance, or is it a cumulative effort?  Gonna noodle on that and get back to you with final results on Friday.

Jolly is a bit of a grower.  It took a while for them to click for me, but when it did it was worth it.  I also gave it some time between listens.

Almost immediately after sending that song, I was having second thoughts. I was pretty sure you would like it, but then I was thinking afterwards that you might not like it enough. :facepalm:

I do think you should take both rounds into consideration. But I'm biased because my first round submission was fairly well received. :lol

I assume you meant a safe choice because it was a great melodic rock track with a chorus that sticks?  :biggrin:
Actually, yeah, you're right. There are other PC69 songs  that rock a bit harder but that is the best chorus. Heard it once live and it stuck so much I was singing it for days.

Post by: wolfking on January 03, 2014, 04:23:12 AM

Black Majesty/Firestorm - the only truly safe song with "Fire" in the title.  Very good power metal.  Not too over the top, nice mix of keys and guitar.  Solid vocals.  Again... kind of a safe choice.  Nothing overwhelming, but nothing underwhelming either.


Find Me/Firefight - On first listen, it was pretty standard/run-of-the-mill Frontiers Records material.  It got better with subsequent listens.

Glad you liked my track.  I thought it would have no problems getting through.  It's is pretty run of the mill, but so solid it's quite awesome.

Also, I'm guessing Bolsters sent the Find Me song.  He should stay.  While the entire album is a run of the mill Frontiers output, it's one Frontiers album that actually grew with time.  At first I was like 'meh' but it became a really solid melodic rock album with many listens.

Ok, let's end the suspense.  Who's cut, and who's qualified for the main competition.  As well, who sent what.

In:
Animations/The Manhattan Project - kirksnosehair
Pink Cream 69/Shame - lowdz
Forward Shapes/Proclivity - Nekov
Black Majesty/Firestorm - wolfking
Waysted/How The West Was Won - TAC
Justified/Temple of the Soul - bosk1
Lorenguard/The Prince and the Pariah - Zook

Out:

Nevermore[/b]/My Acid Words - elefantstone
Pathfinder[/b]/Beyond The Space, Beyond The Time - Shadow Ninja 2.0
Alessandro Bertoni[/b]/Megas Alexandros Pt. 3: To the Ends of the Earth - Big Hath

Undecided - your fate:

Find Me/Firefight - Bolsters... wolfie is right, it does age better with multiple listens.  And it's good enough on its own
Distorted Harmony/Kono Yume - Elite ... this had more that I liked than I didn't.  You're in.
Lethal/Fire in your Skin - jjrock88 ... ditto
Apple Pie/Gates of Never - kingshmegland ... in your 17,000+ song library, I'm sure there's much better.  Unfortunately, I won't be finding out this roulette.  This wasn't a bad song, just not as good as the rest.  Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out. 

Which brings us down to

Kingcrow/Right Before - lonestar
               vs
Jolly/Firewell - Dr. DTVT

Doc had a home run in Round 1, and an admitted 'grower' in round 2.  lonestar had a bit of a stinker in Round 1, and a really good one in Round 2. If it's a cumulative effort, Doc gets the nod.  But alas, it is not.  It's a 'what-have-you-done-for-me-lately' effort.  And for that, the chef is in.

Rather than making this post any longer, I'll put up the full format details later today.  For the time being though, here's what you need to know - 5 open rounds, Jeopardy style.  And there will be a mystery competitor.

Final participant list:
kirksnosehair
lonestar
Bolsters
Lowdz
nekov
wolfking
TAC
Bosk
Elite
jjrock
zook

Oh, then whoever put the details in the YT info was wrong:

Quote
Band: Justified
Song: Temple of Soul
Genres: Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Christian Rock
Album: Volume II (1993)
Label: Intense Records

And a little investigation reveals that "Justified" is track 1 on the s/t album.  Regardless, good tune

You're just like most bitches jingle, you take the good looking jerk and dump the smart nice guy.

Maybe it's for the best.  Bands that peaked in 1990 aren't my forte', and that seems to be the direction you are going.

Hardly... only 3 of the songs that did make the cut were from '93 or earlier.  Five were from 2011 or earlier.

No need to worry.  Completely open rounds - send me whatever you want.  Here's the format of how it's gonna play out...

Now that we've taken out 1/2 of the group, it's Double Jeopardy.  There are 11 of you, and as in my last roulette, there will be an additional, anonymous participant - last.fm (with a randomly selected 'recommendation').  For the next five rounds, you will each bet between $100 and $500, using up each $100 increment over the course of the 5 rounds.  You can chose which song/round you want to bet whenever - you could do $500 in round 1, $200 in round 2, $100 in round 3, etc ... whatever you chose.  Each round, the 4 best songs will win the bet; the 4 'least best' will lose the bet; 4 will break even.  At the end of five rounds, the 3 people with the most $$ will move on to Final Jeopardy:  one song, one bet.  Same award system - one will win the bet; one loses; one breaks even.  He who has the most $$ is the new jingle.champ.

The previously mentioned Mystery Bands also come in to play.  If you happen to chose one, that will act as a 'daily double', and you'll have the option to increase your wager to $500, or double it outright (depending on your original bet)

I'm trying to make this creative, yet not complicated.

Any questions, ask away.

Round 3 results will be posted no later than Thursday the 9th.

This is a pretty good idea.  So basically, it's like betting on sports really.  It's like if you have a song you are confident about, you can slam down $500.  If you are taking a risk, just bet $100.  If the risk doesn't pay off, you lose the $100, instead of wagering a $500, and putting yourself back too many steps.

Something like that?

Seriously, you've posted pictures of your CD towers.  How can you possibly be out of things to send me?

As a reminder to all, don't automatically assume something I've listened to is automatically off limits.  I used the example of Journey earlier (which, ironically I would now consider off limits - I bought 7 of their albums over the holidays to 'catch up').  But there are lots of bands that have lots of albums, and I only know 1 or a few of them.  If I don't know a song, I'm willing to take it.  There may be a few exceptions, but by-and-large, don't feel submissions NEED to be songs where I completely don't know the band.

Sent and threw down $200.

That confident huh? lol. Would you have wagered that on the Ashes before a ball was bowled? And look how that turned out... hangs head (and the batting line-up) in shame.

The fifth series was unbelievable.  England should be ashamed and have a lot of work to do.

I used the example of Journey earlier (which, ironically I would now consider off limits - I bought 7 of their albums over the holidays to 'catch up').
Which 7? Not planning on sending you Journey, just curious.

Infinity, Evolution, Departure, Escape, Frontiers, Trial By Fire, Revelation, Eclipse.

Eight... I mis-counted.
You didn't have ANY of those?? Really?

Sadly enough, I only ever had the Greatest Hits package from the late 80s, then got away from Melodic Rock as a whole in the 90s/early 00s.  Didn't come back to the genre too much until a couple of years ago.

When you've exhausted those you need Arrival. Best Journey album for me. All the others are half filler except RoR which is pretty much all soft pop filler crap.

Yeah.... but.... it's got Steve Augeri on the mic!?!?  I have the Journey 2001 DVD, and man, that was painful the watch.  Not so much the performances, but Steve trying to be more Perry than Augeri; the crowd acting and looking like a bunch of '80s teenagers, when they were '00 adults.  It was comical, and I just have trouble taking that lineup seriously.

Take Frontiers , drop a couple of the turds - like Back Talk - off and replace with the songs that were (stupidly) set aside for movie soundtracks at the time  (Ask The Lonely, Only The Young) and that's my favourite Journey listen.   I also rate Arrival reasonably high but it's a few (soft) tracks too long for my taste and it also depends which version you have - I'd definitely want To Be Alive again which isn't on one of the versions I have.

Well I haven't seen that DVD, since I'm not really into live CDs/DVDs much at all, so I can't comment on that. But from what you've said, Steve Augeri on disc and Steve Augeri live must be very different. He was a pretty good fit for the band and the music on the albums he appears, and I never had any problem with him. Maybe it's different live when he's singing Perry songs.

Yeah it is. The reissue of Frontiers has four extra tracks. bl5150 is right too, those tracks do make what was an already good album and make it better.

Consider yourself lucky.  It was comical.  Mrs.jingle and I were laughing out loud at some parts.  I just YT'd a clip or two, and while Steve doesn't sound that bad, I just can't get past his getup and whole attitude.  And Castronovoa in those sweats is like he's just given up on life!!  They don't sound that bad, but their image that night was as if they mailed it in.

Perhaps I'll give arrival a listen with just my ears.

Takin it over to the Journey thread to continue the discussion.

And you guys are making this round difficult as shit.  Not only will some excellent songs not be winning their wager, but some very good songs will be losing it.  I will say this though, last.fm gave me a stinker of a recommendation, so you all dodged a bullet there.  I don't think anyone wants to lose to a computer algorithm.

Solid, solid set of tunes.

Results around 10:30pm ET.  Writeups are done, but I still have 3 songs vying for 2 money spots.  Since I'm deeply committed to WPaPU, I'll re-listen at 10 to make the final judgment.

Not gonna troll anyone this time around.  Find where you are, find your writeup, or just jump right to the bottom to see if you're up, down, or even.  I'll tell you this, there wasn't a single song that I didn't enjoy this round.  I can't believe I had to not award money to some, and take away from others.  The quality this round was top shelf baby!  Well done to all.

:clap:

Songs/writeups are sorted by the amount you wagered.

zook:
Iced Earth/Dante's Inferno - I bought Live in Athens on the advice of the board a long time ago.  Tried watching it once, and couldn't get thru the first 30 minutes.  This was a pretty good tune, reminded me of Rime of the Ancient Mariner at times... except for the part of being awesome  :lol.  The heavy moments of this song were just too samey imo.  While this did change my opinion of Iced Earth, there were still too many parts I was just 'meh' on.

lonestar:
Tesseract/Of Mind: Nocturne - I'm not really sure what "Melodic djent" means, but this was an excellent tune.  Loved the guitar tone, and vocally it was top notch.  Will definitely be checking out this 4-song album.

wolfking:
Black Sabbath/Computer God - just like Headless Cross in my last roulette, there was absolutely nothing wrong with this tune, but I wasn't overly impressed either.  The first 4 minutes were a little slow and uneventful, but the final 2 minutes were fantastic, and nearly saved the overall experience.  Maybe Sabbath just isn't for me. :-\

Elite:
Jeff Buckley/Grace - lots of talent and excellent song-writing here.  You can just hear the beauty in the music.  But alas, as is the case in any race, there are winners, and there are losers. :|

kirksnosehair:
7 Months/Unspoken Words - I love me my power ballads.  On first listen, I was wow'd by this.  Subsequent listens didn't leave me with the same wow factor, but still loved the tune.  I think it was the first 3 verses (starts off a little to melancholy for me) is what started to turn me off a bit.  Lyrically, it was great, but the vocal delivery was awkward at times.  But then like any great power ballad, the guitar solo was out of this world.

Lowdz:
Brazen Abbot/Eye of the Storm - loved the little guitar wail's.  Fantastic solo, great pace to this song.  Upbeat, but not from a frantic rhythm section.  And with Joe Lynn Turner on the mic... fantastic.  After a bit of research, quite the list of vocalists have contributed here - Lande, Hughes, Harnell.... Will definitely be investigating.

Nekov:
Yargos/The Guilded Cage - "Win if you can; lose if you must; but always cheat".  Love Mac's voice for sure.  Just the opposite of Unspoken Words, I was underwhelmed on first listen, but the just got better and better with every listen.  The melody really had a 'pick-me-up' je ne sais quoi to it.  Keyboard perfectly complimented the guitars.

jjrock88:
Leatherwolf/Thunder - ahhh... the pitfalls of YouTube.  YT quality sucked ass, so I had to go out and buy it.  Lucky I did, as this is a really good tune.  Great bass riff to drive the tune, and really nice guitar riffs throughout.

last.fm:
Dare/King of Spades - The computer algorithm failed horribly this round, giving me a ballad, and not even a power ballad.  It wasn't bad, but it wasn't terribly good either.

Bolsters:
Stratovarious/Unbreakable - for all the times I've tried to get into Strat (I have Episode and Fright Night), I just couldn't.  Something never clicked.  Then I get this song.  Zoinks!!!  :omg: Best song of the round, without a doubt.  Perfect main guitar riff, perfect backing vocal elements, perfect symphonic touches.  Nailed it.

TAC:
Lost Horizon/Cry of a Restless Soul - Dayum.  After a slow spoken part, this grabs you by the short and curlies, and doesn't let go.  Unlike Eye of the Storm, this does have a frantic rhythm section, in a good - nay, great - way.  :birch:

Bosk1:
Dave Miniketti/Storm - Solid, solid tune.  Killer solo in the middle of it with some really neat effects.  I loved it alright, just wasn't "gaga" for it.  It wasn't "Pam".  "Paaaaam".

Win
Bolsters +$500
TAC +$500
nekov +$300
Lowdz +$300

Lose
last.fm -$400
zook -$100
wolfking -$200
Elite -$200

Draw
Bosk1 $0 (bet $500)
lonestar $0 (bet $200)
jjrock88 $0 (bet $300)
kirksnosehair $0 (bet $300)

Next round... results will be posted no later than Tuesday the 14th.  It's football weekend, and first day back to work (after a 3 week vacation) on Monday.

Edit - fix'd TAC's bet.

That's no "effect."  It's all fingers.  He does it on a Les Paul by turning the volume all the way down on the neck pickup (so it is "off"), and flipping the pickup toggle switch super fast with his right hand while fretting the notes with this left.  He does it on a few songs.  Check out at about 2:53 here to see what I am talking about:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjuZzyzC7yg

Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine) used to do almost the same thing. His guitars had a 3-way pickup switch and he wired them so that the sound was off when in the middle position, and quickly flipped the switch to turn the sound on/off. I can't remember any specific songs to use an example.

Fair enough.  I used the term "effect" with extreme liberty.  I didn't mean to imply it was an artificial sound, just that it was a really cool sounding moment in the solo.  Reminded me of JP's 'boomerang' from Voices.

A few bands / songs by others I had lined up, esp jj's Leatherwolf track, Kirk's 7 Months (I had a different track waiting) and TACs Lost Horizon. Back to the drawing board there.

In regard to Brazen Abbot, Eye Of The Storm is the best of the bunch by a good distance and some albums aren't great. I'd Spotify them first.

With a wager of $400, the next submission is sent. Wasn't planning on using it, but based on conversation in another thread, I decided to delay what I was planning to send.

Dio fronted Sabbath, Iced Earth and a song featuring the mighty Joe Lynn Turner all lose.   :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

I know... things are tough. I'm actually very shocked that I can't seem to find the right Sabbath song.  Like I said to you, Neon Knights is one of my favorite songs from the 80s.  Period.

Which losing song featured JLT?

Dare ain't half bad either.

Dare does sound like they should be good, I just think the suggested song was a stinker.

:D
Did you get a bit of a Queen vibe from that song? That's one of the reasons I really like it. Their first album is amazing so you should get it if you can. I recently got the second one and still trying to digest it, very different from the first.

Can't say I did, I just enjoyed the hell out of it.

:( do you accept paypal?

I appreciate the risk you took, but at least you were wise and only wagered a single c-note.

In regard to Brazen Abbot, Eye Of The Storm is the best of the bunch by a good distance and some albums aren't great. I'd Spotify them first.

I always check Spotify or G/S before deciding if I need it 'on-the-go' on my iPhone.  Working from home has its perks in that I can just plug my headphones into my personal laptop, and listen away when I'm not on the phone.

Side note:

Bosk1:
Dave Miniketti/Storm - Solid, solid tune.  Killer solo in the middle of it with some really neat effects.  I loved it alright, just wasn't "gaga" for it.  It wasn't "Pam".  "Paaaaam".

That's no "effect."  It's all fingers.  He does it on a Les Paul by turning the volume all the way down on the neck pickup (so it is "off"), and flipping the pickup toggle switch super fast with his right hand while fretting the notes with this left.  He does it on a few songs.  Check out at about 2:53 here to see what I am talking about:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjuZzyzC7yg

I've never seen anyone else ever do that technique.

First person I saw do this was Ace Frehley.

This.  I still do this sometimes whenever I'm playing my Les Paul during a gig.  I'd be shocked if Ace didn't wear out a toggle switch on every tour.

A good example from the Alive album:

Apologies for not making the wager component clear - in my mind it was!   :lol  Everyone good now?  I wanted the Jeopardy format, but didn't want to restrict anyone to categories or themes.  So, you each get to chose where on the Jeopardy board you want to be in any given round:

(https://nihalyildirim.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/jeopardy-starting-board.gif)

Use each wager once.  The four best songs win the wager; four least best lose the wager; four break even (that's not really a Jeopardy rule, but I didn't want it to be all or nothing for this group).

Capiche?

Right.  You can bet $400, $300, $200, $100 ... whichever round/song you wish.

And just like Jeopardy (for those in a deficit), it doesn't matter.  You can wager whatever you wish (that you haven't already used).

Clear as mud, right?  I'll give a couple of example.

TAC finished Round 1 with $500.  Round two he bets $200, and is in the bottom four.  His total after round 2 is $300.  His remaining wager amounts can be $100, $300, $400.
Zook finished Round 1 with -$100.  Round two he lets it ride with a $500 bet and is in the top four.  His running total is now $400.  His remaining wager amounts can be $200, $300, $400.

and so on.

At the end of 5 rounds, the top 3 will compete in Final Jeopardy.

Bear in mind how I opened the competition as it relates to my last.fm:

Here's my last.fm (https://www.last.fm/user/jingle-boy/library?sortBy=name) again for you to check before submitting a band/song

Feel free to ask or try any band you like.  Since I'm not doing this to discover new bands, I'll pretty much take any song I don't know.  So, even though I have a lot of listens to Journey for instance, there's also a lot by them that I don't know.  However, I do retain the right to reject any submission if I know the band just a little too much.

So, Bolsters ignored (rightfully so) my 80ish plays of Stratovarious since they were only from 2 albums.  I can think of a handful of bands you (and others fretting about whether they have enough material) could send.  My last.fm stats are like the drinking age in Quebec ... merely a suggestion.  I'll really only outright reject bands that I know/have at least 2/3rd of their discography.

Basically if you loved Nemesis, you need to check Elysium, which is ten times better IMO.  The one before Polaris is solid too.  Polaris, Elysium and Nemesis all contain the new guitarist after Tolkki left so they are forming their new sound again.  So while there are traces of the old stuff, they are pretty much a brand new band and sound now.

For the old stuff though, check Elements Part 1, Visions, Infinite and Destiny, all classic power metal.

Also, I think I have a Yargos album, I should look for it.

As wolfie mentioned, Elysium is probably the closest to Nemesis, and Polaris after that. Though unlike him I think Nemesis is twenty times better than Elysium. :lol I haven't really been able to get into either Polaris or Elysium, but like you I was floored by Nemesis.

As for the Tolkki stuff...if you didn't like Episode all that much, the early albums probably aren't going to do much for you, so go with some of the later albums. Three of the albums wolfking mentions - Elements part 1, Infinite, and Destiny - are all good.

And... two people (they know who they are) have landed on the Mystery Band list, and both chose to double their bet.

Sorry to butt in (not really part of this) but I think your taste in Strato is a bit like mine..........I love Nemesis but from their older material I prefer it when the slow down a bit .  So I really like Uncertainty off Episode  but some of the rest is meh.    From the old stuff I'd try Fourth Dimension (half killer, half filler)  -  from the newer stuff I'd sample both of the other albums with the new guitarist (as already recommended). ...Polaris and Elysium.  The second half of Elysium is much stronger than the first IMO , so don't give up too quick.

I think Nemesis will end up my fave of theirs by some way.

PS there are some tracks off EOTS on Youtube - don't get confused by the different album covers.  There's some sort of channel here   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2xmc8kuNs8&list=PLqx_nOMMmVVEu_ZHSeJGMrDyhtXhrR8li   I have most of their stuff but EOTS is as good as any and better than most.

It's already become mine. I was a big fan of them in high school, however I lost interest in Stratovarius many years ago. Nemesis though has renewed my interest and while the majority of the early stuff doesn't exactly scratch me where I itch anymore, Nemesis most definitely does.

Chad not too keen on Episode isn't a sign of what he might think of the old stuff.  Episode did absolutely nothing for me, and is one of the weakest.  Saying that, IMO Twilight Time is incredible and would probably make my top 5.

Episode was one of my favourites of early Strat, probably why my view is the opposite of yours.

I considered mentioning Twilight Time, but it's always been a mixed bag for me, I like about half the songs but the other half do nothing. But the half that I like is rather good.

Beardfish - And The Stone Said "If I Could Speak"
Freakeys - One Cup, One Lighter, One Jerk
Sonata Arctica - Don't Say A Word
The Third Ending - Tungsten Blues

You guys try to figure out which is which.  Yeah, the mind fuck continues.

Results tomorrow (probably).

Well, hopefully Beardfish isn't bottom two, but considering your dislike of them, that's gonna be one.  Old SA is up your alley so that is top two.  I don't know the others, but based on the name of the band I'm guessing Freakeys is also bottom two.

Very good. A couple of tracks were so so, but for the most part it was very good.

Well, hopefully Beardfish isn't bottom two, but considering your dislike of them, that's gonna be one.  Old SA is up your alley so that is top two.  I don't know the others, but based on the name of the band I'm guessing Freakeys is also bottom two.

Now tell me I'm right and give me a cookie.

Let me just say that I liked all 12 songs I got this round.

Bottom 4 - ranged from enjoyable, to really good
Middle 4 - ranged from really good to excellent
Top 4 - ranged from excellent to GREAT!

So, my advanced apologies to those in the bottom 4.  Nothing wrong with them, they were just up against songs I liked better.  Not every Olympic athlete gets a gold medal.   ;)

I'm serious, I've spent the last 2 hours figuring out what I'm going to send the next rounds

I feel your pain.  I'm doing the same thing for Jaffa's roulette.

Sorry for the torture (not really though :jets:), but today is my first day back to work after an almost 3 week vacation.  Got a busy day.

Post by: jingle.boy on January 13, 2014, 09:18:52 PM
Sorry for the delay... did end up spending some time with the misses... I'll let your imaginations run wild.  Ok, let's put some minds at ease.  I'll include the current round wager as I give you the writeups.

Zook($500)
Stone Sour/Absolute Zero
I think I tried Stone Sour based on your Top 50 (maybe someone wolfie’s), and very much enjoyed it.  This was from a different album, so that makes this band 2 for 2.  Straight up, meat-and-potatoes metal.  Nothing flashy, nothing spectacular.  Just brute force :metal.  Might have to explore a little more.

wolfking ($500)
Sonata Arctica/Don't Say A Word
Mason is such a smarty pants.  This was a daily double, one of the Mystery Bands, and Kade let it ride for a $1000 wager.  Up to this point, I had no idea what kind of music Sonata Arctica was, I just certainly know I wasn’t expecting this.  I did end up checking out the original mix of this (vs the edit that was submitted), and found it just as good.  By the books power metal.  Vocally, I’m amazed how much Kakko sounds like Georg Neuhauser from Serenity.  Keyboards have a strong Royal Hunt vibe too.  Nice selection.

Elite ($300)
Beardfish/And The Stone Said "If I Could Speak"
Reminded me of Haken – which is another band that I haven’t “gotten”.  Lots of creative song-writing and talent here.  Guess you’ve never been on WPaPU chat sessions when Nick has played Beardfish?  Which is why Mason is a double smarty-pants.  While this totally changed my impression of them, it wasn’t quite enough to float my boat.

kirksnosehair ($200)
The Third Ending/Tungsten Blues
Second instrumental in a row from Barry.  After knocking it out of the park in the qualifying rounds, and just missing the money in Round 1, it’s another step back unfortunately.  Nothing wrong with this tune, but nothing grabbed my attention.

Lowdz ($400)
Leverage/Dreamworld
More Royal Hunt-ish keys kick this one off.  But, it’s perfectly complemented with Silent Force-like guitar riffs.  Odd little pause in the middle before the solo that you don’t expect, then BAM!  Right back to the riffing.  The keyboard melody gets a little repetitive by the end of it though.

Nekov ($400)
Freakeys /One Cup, One Lighter, One Jack
What the hell did I just listen to?  3:42 of awesomeness, that’s what.  Lots of upbeat creativity packed into this instrumental.  Bold choice.  Risk was taken here for sure, and in the words of the infamous Emil M. Antonowsky, I LIKE IT (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0-ohru2_0o).  Lots of funky little elements that had me tapping my toes and grooving my head the whole time.

jjrock88 ($400)
Barren Cross/The Stage of Intensity
How in the hell did Bruce Dickinson not sue this guy for stealing his voice?  Seriously, I had to research this right away to see if it was a side project by Bruce.  Really nice acoustic intro, before going balls out metal.  Nice old school metal too.  Wasn’t a damn thing about this one that I didn’t like.  A lot.

last.fm ($200)
Iron Savior/The Savior
With a lineup led by Kai Hansen, I had high hopes for this.  Had a Blind Guardian feel (unsurprisingly), and Blind Guardian is hit-and-miss with me.  The guitars were a little hollow sounding, and ultimately was a solid track, but it fell just a little short.  This almost beat out Barren Cross, but in this competition, tie goes to the human. 

Bolsters ($300)
Big Big Train/Judas Unrepentant
Boldest choice of the round... excellent combination of prog and just a bucket full of fun.  I think I tried BBT when everyone was pimping them a few months ago, and was underwhelmed.  Maybe I tried Part 2?  Well, this starts out fun as hell, and then quickly turns into progressive perfection.  Vocally, stunning.  Loved the background guitar; vocalist reminds me of John Mitchell from It Bites.

TAC ($400)
Michael Kiske/Do I Remember A Life
TAC top 10 of all time, eh?  Yeah, I can see that.  This melodic ballad was by far the most beautiful song of the round.  Took a while to get going, and had a very long (2 minute) outro to cool down. It reminds me a lot of In The Hands of Time by Hardline... the perfect final track on a great album, with both powerful and soft moments fantastically feeding off of each other.  It’s probably is a million times better in the context of the whole album, and I’m looking forward to listening to the whole thing.  I have no doubt that this will be a grower, get better with every single listen, and could very likely in a year or so be the best song from this round – but for the moment, it isn’t.

bosk1($200)
Kick Axe/Alive and Kicking
Absolutely something that would’ve been RIGHT in my wheelhouse 20 years ago.  Fairly unspectacular; a simple tune, yet effective.  This is something I can see Coz whipping a crowd into a frenzy with.  Still enjoyed it a lot today, but it’s just a little too pedestrian for my complete enjoyment these days. 

lonestar ($500)
Steven Wilson/The Watchmaker
Which brings us to the final song.  Another Mystery Band selection – and lonestar also let’s it ride, with “total faith” in how good this song is.  For all the felating that Wilson gets on DTF, I figure I need to learn why, and was hoping someone would send me something of his that is going to wow me.  Pretty much knew it wasn’t going to be Doc or King, as they know my typical “Not this Steven Wilson shit” response from WPaPU chat sessions when Nick plays him.  None-the-less, this left a much better impression on me than anything I remember Nick playing.  Genesis/Marillion vibe and a godly guitar solo followed up with a nice little keyboard/guitar duel.  I wanted to really like it... wanted to love it in fact, but I just couldn’t.  Didn’t seem to be any structure to this song at all, and the outro was like a paradox to me - both good and bad - like it tries to be epic, but falls just short (the more I listened to it, the more the whole song struck me that way).  The whole time I’m listening to the outro, all I can picture is

I had a crisis of confidence after sending that track as there are several great songs on that album. Went with the big riff and it seems to have paid off.

This will be a make or break round for pretty much everyone.  There is a single $200 bet, a single $300, and the rest are $400 and $500.  Also, two more Mystery Bands have been selected.

Listening commences tomorrow morning.  Me suspects this will be the fiercest round yet.

Ok, just to prove I'm not sucking up to the new guy, and to begin the mind-fuck games.  Both mystery band submitter's doubled their wager.  One will win it; one will lose it.  Check back tomorrow.  Should be able to get results up.  Gotta listen at least one more time, but I think I know where things are going to settle.

Post by: jingle.boy on January 18, 2014, 12:40:06 PM
Bolsters ($400)
Circle of Illusion/New Age
Took a long time to get rolling.  Great guitar riff, followed by prog metal goodness.  Really technical. It felt compositionally challenged; overall, it didn't flow very well together for me... Like the pieces of the songs were haphazardly stitched together.  I really enjoyed all the individual pieces, but as a whole, it just left me feeling a little limp.

Lowdz ($200)
Alter Bridge/Cry Of Achilles
Great track... vocally, there are some moments where I totally get a Lande feel.  Musically, I get a circa-2013 Queensryche vibe.  Don’t know how to explain it, but it just strikes me that way.  Much like Sonata Arctica last round, I’d seen this band’s name bounced around on the board, but never heard anything by them and didn't know what to expect.  Now I’m kinda kicking myself if this is what they’re all about.

Nekov ($500)
Bullitts Dominae/Pure Reason Revolution
This one was more like the stuff you sent in my first Roulette.  Ironic how you said you had a lot of confidence with this one, but had been doing well in the first few rounds without any confidence.  Guess you should take the ‘Costanza’ approach – do the exact opposite of every instinct you have :lol. Things improved 1/2 way thru, but couldn't make up for what I didn't enjoy in the 1st half.  The male/female duet didn't quite click for me.

TAC ($300)
Eldritch/Quiet Hope
This grabs ya with a heavy, raw opening riff – very much old school Metallica.  Unfortunately, I’m a huge Metallica fan, and the old school stuff is very hit-and-miss with my tastes.  The rest of the song is filled with rapidly changing tempos and structure, which didn't allow me to get in sync with it.  Like Bolsters’ song, I liked the individual parts of it, but together as a whole, it was just ok.  Reminded me of Ross playing the keyboard (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuBJLTdr_pQ).  It seemed to zig-zag all over the place. 

lonestar ($400)
Mandroid Echostar/Citadels
Just like the Mandroid Echostar track you sent me in my first roulette, this was very good.  Very polished band.  Smooth chops – guitars and vocally.  Loved all the different riffs, and licks that permeate the whole song.  Fantastic outro.  Just a solid, solid track – start to finish.

jjrock ($400)
Virgin Steele/The Burning of Rome
Fantastic.  This was a perfect mix of everything I love in music - glam, melodic, symphonic and proggy all at once.  Why wasn't I listening to this in 1988?  At times I get a Maiden (Powerslave-ish) feel.  Song of the round.   :tup

Zook ($400)
Rainover/Dust and Dawn
VERY much like Within Temptation - operatic vocals but no power behind them.  That’s my knock against WT and Sharon... there’s just no oomph in her voice for me, and this was the same.  Good tune, just not great.  And with this competition, good ain’t gonna earn you any dough.

kirksnosehair ($500)
Venturia/Dear Dead Bride
Another really cool, technically complex song from a very proficient band.  No compositional challenges here, as everything seems to slide right into place.   

Bosk ($400)
Stryper/Sympathy
Mystery Band alert.  Surprisingly, Stryper was a band I never took the time to enjoy.  Heard a lot, and heard that this year’s album was fantastic.  This song was that too.  All the great elements of a glam band that isn’t really glam... just damned good melodic rock.  Great vocal harmonies, straight-forward riffs and drum fills that don’t go over the top, but are more than just keeping the beat. 

wolfking ($400)
Bruce Dickinson/Trumpets of Jericho
Mystery Band alert #2.  And, if you didn’t figure it out from the above description, this was the one that wasn’t up to snuff.  At first I didn’t get it at all.  More listens (and with headphones) got it to somewhat click with me, just not enough to surpass some of the other songs.  There's a certain... I don't know ... about the song and Bruce’s tone that just isn’t floating my boat too much here.  Tastes... Who needs 'em?!?

Elite ($500)
Persona non Grata/Imaginative Mind
The vocal moments remind me of Marco from Nightwish; really heavy intro, didn't like that part too much, but when the keys come in for support, that was really nice.  Everything from the guitar solo out was wicked.  You said you were going down with this song, well, at least it didn’t drag you down any further.
 
last.fm ($500)
Suspyre/Distant Skies
Pretty good track.  The keyboard tone in the main melody is too, weak, soft... almost a nasally quality.  Guitar solo was really good, and the rest of the song gave me a Royal Hunt vibe.  Not sure why last.fm says they are like Eumeria or Beyond the Bridge.  Not even close.  It was happy power metal.

Current Results:
February – Lowdz, bosk, lonestar, jjrock  :topscore:

Feb – Bolsters, kirksnosehair, last.fm, Elite    :yeahright
Febtober – zook, nekov, TAC, wolfking    :score:

Rankings:
Lowdz - $900
Bolsters - $800
bosk - $600
lonestar - $400
jjrock - $400
Nekov - $200
TAC - $200
wolfking - $0
kirksnosehair - $-200
Zook - $-500
Elite - $-500
last.fm - $-600

Roulettes can be a funny thing.  I was chatting with shmegland last night (early this morning really), and said that sometimes you can get right in the zone (as he and I did in Elite’s roulette), or it can be like trying to undo a bra for the first time.
Lowdz is clearly in the zone, going 3-for-3... and he is the only one that still has a $500 bet at their disposal.  Bolster’s hit a bit of a roadblock this round; jj and RJ got themselves back into the competition, as did our Sith Lord nailing the audio daily double.  Barry.... sorry to put you right on the money cut-line for the 2nd time Barry.  The other boys just edged you out again, and wolf erased everything he earned last round.

Round 6 results will come no later than Thursday morning.  Fire away!

By the way, you suck.

Have you never watched Jeopardy?   :lol

Everyone is still in it for 2 more rounds.  At the end of these two rounds, the top 3 will play one more round - "Final Jeopardy" - to determine the overall winner.  You can still wager $200 and $300.  So, technically, it's unlikely that you'd finish top 3 (but if you happen to chose 2 mystery bands, you could double your wagers, and ultimately win $1000... potentially putting you into 3rd place).  Unlikely, but not mathematically impossible.

The purpose of roulette's is to share music.  I'm just trying to incorporate a little extra fun.  I hope you don't drop out because it's unlikely you'll win.  I'm still enjoying the music you're sending, it's just that others have sent music I'm enjoying more (although, Stone Sour JUST missed earning you money last round).  I still go back to my playlists from my first roulette, and as Zydar will get a chuckle out of, one of the songs that I ranked him low on is one of my favorites now.

Send me something as awesome as Anthriel, Pyramaze or Alyson Avenue (bands that I have gotten into because of you), and you'll probably earn some dough.

tl:dr ... share me some awesome music you fucker.  :zook1:

Beg your pardon??

Now that we've taken out 1/2 of the group, it's Double Jeopardy.  There are 11 of you, and as in my last roulette, there will be an additional, anonymous participant - last.fm (with a randomly selected 'recommendation').  For the next five rounds, you will each bet between $100 and $500, using up each $100 increment over the course of the 5 rounds.  You can chose which song/round you want to bet whenever - you could do $500 in round 1, $200 in round 2, $100 in round 3, etc ... whatever you chose.  Each round, the 4 best songs will win the bet; the 4 'least best' will lose the bet; 4 will break even.  At the end of five rounds, the 3 people with the most $$ will move on to Final Jeopardy:  one song, one bet.  Same award system - one will win the bet; one loses; one breaks even.  He who has the most $$ is the new jingle.champ.

No biggie... I think this is your first roulette, and I didn't make it entirely straight forward.

I was worried. Alter Bridge were never my thing but that track and plenty off the new album are excellent.

Didn't know you were into them.

I've only really enjoyed the new one. Not really given the older stuff much of a go tbh.

Getting ready to send but torn between three songs by the same band... And playing them again isn't helping. Can I send all 3?  :biggrin:

Wow, I just lost everything.  No regrets as Trumpets is possibly my fav song of all time.  That's the way it goes.

Sorry mate.  :dunno:  Not sure why Bruce's solo stuff doesn't click with me.  I remember that after your top 50, I tried a bit of Chemical Wedding, but I was underwhelmed.  Then again, you like the Blaze era Maiden, and I can't stand it. 

Tastes... who needs 'em?!?!

I am listening to Reckoning Night right now, and enjoying it.

Then my mission here has been accomplished.  Check Silence next, then Winterheart's Guild, then Ecliptica, then Unia, then Stones, then Days of Gays. (or inot, it's piece of crap album.)

No worries.  Hopefully they were good "unforseen circumstances" and not because you got a bad batch of Zydar's goods, woke up in a motel room wearing nothing but a thong, with a strange (yet familiar) taste in your mouth, and an empty tube of KY on the night stand.

This is the strongest round yet, and every song deserves to earn money.  Alas, they won't.  Couple of songs nailed it though.  HARD.  The rest are fighting for spots 3 and 4.  Honestly, if I was using a 10 point rating system, everything is an 8 or higher (after 2 listens).

I liked it better when I (briefly) thought that zook/Elite were bailing because they didn't have much of a chance of getting to Final Jeopardy.  Would've been easy to put their 'no-submissions' in the last 2 places.

Now ... da fuq!?!  12 amazing songs.  Two Mystery Bands, and true to form, both doubled their wager.  Got a lot of listening to do in order to figure out to stack these.  None of these songs are losers, but unfortunately, only 4 will "win".

Best round yet.  :clap: to all of you.

So, as I said, these were 12 awesome songs.  Two really stood out, and the rest were fighting it out for spots 3 and 4.  This is the first round so far where I know I’ll be checking out all 12 of these albums to get a better sense of the band, and I’m willing to bet ½ of them will result in a purchase.  Thanks, fuckers!  That being said, the margin of difference in order to stack rank them is incredibly slim, and any negative comments are me REALLY searching for something to nit-pick about. 

Bolsters ($200)
The Black Mages\Vamo Alla Flamenco
Really, really great prog instrumental.  Clean, polished, top notch stuff.  Can’t really say much more about it – diverse set of melodies and sounds were delivered here...everything you’d want/expect from a Grade A prog tune.

bosk ($300)
Flotsam And Jetsam\Smoked Out
Another band I’ve seen the name of, and have often wondered what kind of music it was.  Never would’ve pegged it for old-school hard/heavy rock.  Loved the guitar sound.  Weakest part for me was vocals.  Guitar melodies got kinda repetitive towards the end.

lonestar ($100)
Need\Entheogen
Loved the guitar tones and riffs.  The mellower moments didn't work for me.  One excellent instrumental section, and a nice composition.  Lots of emotional guitar solo'g throughout.  Probably works real good in the context of the whole album, which I’ll be checking out.  STOP SENDING ME CONCEPTS!!!

jjrock ($100)
Winters Bane\Heart of a Killer
Excellent riffing.  Great hard rock/metal that I would've loved if I kept exploring in the 90s.  Only knock is what I would consider 'decent’ vocals.

Nekov ($200)
Dragonland\Too Late for Sorrow
Great blend of metal and melodic.  With Elize Ryd, this male/female duet works, although Jonas was definitely the weak link in the vocal department.  Great power ballad, but not the best one this round....

Zook ($200)
Demons & Wizards\Fiddler on the Green
... that honor goes to zook, although I’m not sure one would technically classify this as a power ballad.  Nonetheless, I loved the contrast between the acoustic 1st half of the song (which really reminded me of the start of the outro from TCOT - actually, the whole song did), and :metal of the 2nd half.  Hansi’s vocals can be hit or miss, but they worked here.

TAC ($200)
Sun Caged\Ashes to Earn
Mystery Band #1 this round.  And with a $200 bet, TAC ups it to the max of $500.  Killer arpeggio opening to the instrumental section.  The whole song oozes with a nice blend of guitars and keys.  Absolutely loved the guitar tone - full and rich... Now THIS was chocolate cake for the ears!

wolfking ($300)
Mercenary\Through Our Darkest Days
Rough vocals don't detract at all.  Musically it's fantastic – loved the guitar riff; terrific solo.  It got better with every listen as I got more in tune with the vocal style.  I think I might have enjoyed it more if they were a little cleaner/smoother, but this was a great tune either way.

kirksnosehair ($400)
Sacrum\Cognition
And there she goes!  Nailed it right from the intro.  Wasn't a damn thing about this that I didn't love.  This was the kind of music I was expecting every round from you.  You nailed it in the qualifiers, then stumbled a bit the past couple of rounds, but this was absolute dynamite.  Song of the round.  Purchase will undoubtedly be made.

Elite ($100)
Sacrum\Survive
A double dose of these guys this round.  I didn't really think the 'mega horn' vocal effect was needed.  Musically, it was as good as the other Sacrum tune, but I didn’t see the need to get all whacky with the vocals.

last.fm ($300)
Khymera\Borderline
Pretty standard melodic flair.  And as usual, the ties go to the humans, so HAL finishes in the bottom group again, despite probably the best recommendation from last.fm so far

Lowdz ($500)
At Vance\Take My Pain
Which brings us to Mystery Band #2, and by doubling the $500 wager, it’s literally a make or break song for Lowdz.  Either an insurmountable, Cliff Claven-like lead, or he’s done.  Killer intro, and while At Vance was a mystery band for the Rick Altzi aspect, I love Ollie as a vocalist.  Great pace, excellent guitars and solo, and some really nice vocal harmonies in the chorus.  But, was it good enough to win, draw, or did it just miss the cut?

Win – kirksnosehair, Lowdz, TAC, wolfking  :topscore:
Lose– last.fm, jjrock, lonestar, bosk :score:
Draw – Bolsters, nekov, zook, Elite  :dunno:

Standings:
Lowdz - $1,900
Bolsters -$ 800
TAC - $700
Bosk - $300
lonestar - $300
jjrock - $300
wolfking - $300
nekov - $200
kirksnosehair - $200
zook - -$500
Elite - -$500
last.fm - -$900

Ok... so I’m gonna call an audible in for this round, and entry into Final Jeopardy

Given the standings, and the wagers left, the top 3 are set.  Without a Mystery Band selection, there’s no way for anyone to catch TAC.  And with the cluster of people at $200 and $300, I’m going to make things interesting, and allow a FOURTH AND FIFTH person into the finals.  I’m also going to grant Zook and Elite an automatic Daily Double... so for Elite, his $400 wager turns into $800, which gives him hope (sorry Zook... I think you’re now mathematically eliminated from the finals).  Not sure I know how I’ll handle a tiebreaker, but I’ll figure that out.  Also, last.fm is fired.  None of the songs recommended were bad, but none wow'd me enough to rank it better than most of your choices.  So, for the last round, it's out.

As for wagers, zook and lonestar have $300; jjrock has $200; and the rest have $100.  As mentioned, Elite has $400.  So, it's anyone's game for those final two spots.

Expecting a big round, and standings will be posted no later than Wednesday.

Damn, from the write-up I was expecting to have won some money. It really must have been a strong round as you said. I'd better head off to Spotify.

You won't find my band on Spotify, but I checked and they're on Grooveshark. I only bring it up because I wholly recommend their first two albums, however I can't recommend the third one at all. I'd suggest listening to it last or avoiding it altogether.

Oh, and did you figure out that I effectively sent you video game music (albeit a cover)? :lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xMZo4Kvau4

Nope, never played Final Fantasy ... any iteration. 

You and zook were right on the money cut line.  I really wrestled between your songs, and wolfking's for the final winner.  Alas, the other Aussie won, and you two stayed even this round.

Winter's Bane is definitely not Ripper's best work.

Well, I'm not much of an a IE fan, and never did get into JP, so not surprising that another album featuring Ripper didn't wow me.  As I mentioned, I was really stretching to find something to nit pick, and for that tune, it was the vocals that impressed me the least.

So, let's see. Since I'm in last place my wager gets doubled automatically? What happens if I send a mystery band (chances are that I won't though :P )?

Yes...I'm throwing you a bone.  No additional doubling of your wager if you chose a Mystery Band though.  Since I don't like rewarding just for the sake of rewarding, you're gonna have to knock my socks off to earn your dough tho.

Well, I did listen to it when you suggested it back in the summer during the 'what should my 1000th band be' thread (which, thanks to you and Shadow Ninja, was Anthriel - killer album; side note - went back to that thread and noticed that Kick Axe, Jolly and Thunderstone were all recommended   :)).

Anyway, they're banned.

Actually, I really don't know what to send.

Most of that Anthriel CD is good, but then you get to Promised Land and it's Dream Theater's Afterlife. I was OK with the Symphony X similarities in the other songs, but they pretty much copied Afterlife to a T in the verses of Promised Land.

Post by: jingle.boy on January 31, 2014, 04:52:36 PM
Sorry folks... shit hit the fan (work and parenting) this afternoon.  Here you go:

Bolsters ($100)
Afro Celt Sound System/The Silken Whip
Celtic vibe (shocking, given the band name!).  Overall, it was kinda bland. I found it to be very repetitive, and gave me the same vibe I remember from listening to OSI.  I'm not an OSI fan at all.

Bosk ($100)
Epica/Unleashed
Ding ding, da ding ding ding!  Mystery Band selection #3 from Bosk.  It’s like he saw the PM I sent to Jaffa or something!!  Wait.  Son of a …  Oh well.  With IT being the (almost) final round and nothing to lose, he ups the wager to the maximum $500.  So much powah in Simone's voice, just the way a symphonic female voice should be.  This is typical symphonic metal – not that there’s anything wrong with that… there’s only so many variations you can put in this genre.

Elite ($200)
Myrath/Madness
Nothing grabbed me on first listen; second listen much better; third even better.  Here’s why you listen to a song multiple times in Roulette’s.  Every time I played this, I enjoyed it better than the last.

jjrock ($200)
Shark Island/Paris is Watching
Nice raspy vocals; rhythm section was spot on.  The melodies were right on that border of glam but not glam... The good stuff – like White Lion and Winger.  Not that it sounded like that, just that this was quality melodic rock in that flavour

kirksnosehair ($100)
Time Grid/Emptiness
Technically proficient… more than proficient actually.  This is a very complex composition, and requires a lot of talent to pull it off.  Like trying to speak French in New Orleans... Impressive sure, but what's the point?  Felt to me like they were going all technical just because they’ve got the talent to do so.

lonestar ($300)
81db/A Blind Man's Dream
Great crunchy guitar tone, and I absolutely loved the outro.  Not so much on the vocals, though they’re growing on me.  Again, you're killing me with the concepts, as I'll bet this works great in the context of the whole album.  Like Elite’s submission, it aged better with each listen.  Looking forward to taking in the whole album.

Lowdz ($100)
Manowar/Mountains
Instrumental section didn't do anything for me... at all.  Much like some of the other older tunes sent this roulette, this would've really appealed to me 20/25 years ago.

nekov ($100)
Dominici/The Calling
Massive Honor Thy Father vibe from the guitar tone/melody.  Then I realized it was nothing like Honor Thy Father, because this was really good.  Great riffs, great instrumental section, great keyboard accompaniment, and good ole Chuckles sounds great.

TAC ($100)
Heavenly/Evil
The 1st half, so-so (and I’m being generous); The 2nd half, was really good.  The pounding rhythm section in 1st half was painful - would've been so much better to tone that down a little (less can be more).  From the instrumental section out, this was great.

Wolfking ($100)
Cloudscape/Under Fire
Mystery Band #2 this round.  Now I know why they are high on my 'check-it-out' list.  Damn... Why did I wait!  Near perfect melodic metal.  Not entirely unique, but (just as in Bosk’s submission) there are only so many variations to this genre... And it doesn't really matter, because this scratches me right where I itch.  Song of the round.

Zook ($300)
Blackmore's Night/Locked Within the Crystal Ball
Annette era Nightwish vibe going on here.  Really, REALLY good tune, but again these female vocals just miss that ‘oomph’ factor for me.

Birdie – wolfking, Bosk, jjrock, nekov  :fistpump:
Par – lonestar, zook, Elite, kirksnosehair  :-\
Bogey – Lowdz, Bolsters, TAC   :censored

Damn… the leaders mailed it in this round, feeling a little comfortable with their standings??  And Elite, I wrestled hard and long with your submission vs jj’s as to which was going to finish in the money.  I almost considered giving a 'win' to 5 people, but I will stick to my ranking method, and he finished just a hair ahead of you this round.

Standings:
Lowdz - $1,800
bosk - $800
wolfking - $800
Bolsters - $700
TAC - $600
------------------------
jjrock - $500
lonestar - $300
nekov - $300
kirksnosehair - $200
Elite - -$500
Zook - -$500

Well, thanks to the random Mystery Band/Daily Double aspect, TAC and Bolsters would’ve been ousted if I’d kept it to 3 finalists.

FINAL ROUND
And here’s how the final round will work.  Send me one band, up to 20 minutes (ish) of music.  You can send however many tracks you’d like, but keep it around 20 minutes.  Bet whatever amount you want of your current holdings (I assume you’ll all bet the max – maybe not Lowdz).  Here’s the rub…  the bottom two will win nothing (and hold at their current total); middle guy wins his bet; top two will win double their wager.  Example - if Bolsters bets his max and finishes top 2, he’ll finish at $2,100 (700 + 700*2).  If Bosk bets his max, and finishes 3rd, he’ll end up with $1,600.

So, this is Lowdz’s to win (or lose).  So long as he doesn’t finish bottom 2, it’s pretty much his.  I want to give everyone a chance to win, but don’t want it to be entirely equal footing, as Lowdz nailed it pretty much every round except the last.

I’m not gonna start listening until Monday… busy Super Bowl weekend.

Thanks to the other 5, you’ve all given me something to explore (and in some cases, purchases have already been made).

I expect that I’ve confused you all with this, so I await your questions.

As Orville said to Wilbur... you're Wright!

NO LEAD IS SAFE!!!

Hey, he just has to not shit the bed.  Given he went 6/7 in the first 7 rounds, he's got as good a chance at winning this as Manning does the MVP.  I just didn't want to deprive the other 4 of hope - never deprive anyone of hope... it might be all they have.  If I did the same scoring as the last 5 rounds, there'd be no way for anyone to win, as Lowdz would just bet $0.

I already had no idea what to send for the final round, my own fault for sending my best ideas in the main rounds because I didn't think I'd make it this far. But this 20 minute thing has really thrown me off. I'll send something tonight, probably.

Hey, you took a chance, which I can appreciate ... it just didn't pay off. 

And let me clarify the 20 minute thing - it just means you (or anyone) can send a couple/few songs from your band of choice.  You don't have to, but you aren't limited to just one song.  If a single 5 minute song is all you wants to send, so be it.  Just thought I'd offer the chance to provide a bit more variety from anyone's band of choice.

Good roulette man, and best of luck to those who didn't suck. Hope I at least lightened your wallet a bit, my usual goal in these things.

You've lightened my wallet enough over the years.  I'd hardly say you sucked... your aim was just a ring or two outside the bullseye.

Got a feeling a couple of these concepts will end up in my library after I have a proper listen to them - Blind Man's Dream and Orvam:A Song For Home especially.  Steven Wilson, not so much.   :P

Well, I didn't want to "waste" a song, though I really like that song I sent.

A couple more bands went that I had in my locker- Shark Island and Myrath (albums 2 =3 are both fantastic. You may want to avoid the first).

Now its serious. What to send? The 20 minute thing changes things a bit...

I can certainly understand why they're not for everyone- the humour likely resonates more with us old farts who lived the 80's.    having said that when you go to a gig it's all age groups.  What really surprises me is that many of their biggest fans are the young girls who are the "butt" of most of the misogynistic humour.........including my sister (although I brainwashed her into good music from a young age and she too lived the 80's music).

If you can deal with the R-rated lyrics/on stage banter their gigs really are one huge party and a great night out.

Well... doesn't look like I'm gonna top the 30 page monstrosity from my first Roulette (man that one was fun), but hopefully the 20 pages and 668 posts (damn, would've been cool if I could've had this as post 666... I digress... squirrel!) are reflective of a fun time had by all.

These write-ups might seem a little anti-climactic.  I’ve run out of superlatives to give you guys.  Again, all the music this round was a treat to listen to – either wow’g the fuck out of me, bringing me back to a comfort zone of very familiar music, or just plain fun.  So, I'm not really going to mess with you guys on this one, this will be sorted order of ranking.

Bottom Tier
Wolfking/Gamma Ray
Songs - Anywhere in the Galaxy; Razorblade Sigh; Land of the Free; Eagle
Well, this certainly clicked better with me than the Sabbath of earlier rounds, but still not nearly as memorable as other submissions of yours.  If I had to give these songs a grade, it would be B or B+.  All very solid, yet fairly unspectacular.  I think I really need some sense of ‘prog’ in my power metal.  Of all the ‘pure’ power metal bands in my library (Freedom Call, Rhapsody, Blind Guardian, and a few others), there’s actually more that I'm 'meh' over, than that which I'm 'gaga' over.  These were all somewhere in between.
Other listening notes:  Screaming guitar grabbed my attention; rhythm section dominates way too much; better on subsequent listens; Loved the instrumental; lots of pace changes; didn’t grab my attention.

Bosk/Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Songs - Tamacun; Orion
God damn these were fun tune’s to listen to.  Completely 100% outside of the musical box I would normally be in.  And I’m really glad you insisted on my watching them live.  There’s a certain ‘je ne c’est quoi’ in listening/watching them live vs the studio recordings.  If it was just left to the latter, I think I likely would have quickly dismissed it.  There’s so much more energy in their live playing.
Other listening notes:  Dayum!  This puts the ‘fun’ in Funky.  Very cool.

Middle Guy
Boslters/Twilightning
Songs - Isolation Shell; Into Treason; The Fiend; Fever Pitch
Some really solid rock tunes here.  Vocally, it didn’t quite float my boat though.  Nothing wrong with any of these songs, they were all very enjoyable (Fever Pitch was the best them), but nothing wow’d me or made me stop and take notice.  Most of the solo’s and instrumental sections were quite good
Other listening notes:   Excellent.  Intro justifies the title, then it slides in to a great groove; vocally this is good! interesting keyboard intro, saved by the guitar ... then killed by the vocals; better with backing vocal support.

Top Shelf
TAC/Glass Mind
Songs - Haunting Regrets; Crepusculum Vehementis; Beyond Our Souls
God Bless you good citizen.  These three tracks were all genius, and instantly grabbed my attention.  Top notch.  Great talent, great sound, excellent compositions.  It’s a good thing I didn’t rely solely on the Grooveshark links, as they were demo-quality sound.  The actual album tracks are so much more sonically robust.  And what’s this??  They’re going to be on the ProgNation at Sea cruise in 10 days.  :happydance:  Best submissions by far.  By FAR.  Purchase is definitely impending.
Other listening notes:  Brilliant intro; Great guitar riffs; great percussion; killer fills and solos; Killer instrumental; More killer work on the skins.
 
Lowdz/Praying Mantis
Songs - In Time; Restless Heart; So High; Touch the Rainbow
As I mentioned coming into this final round, this was Paul’s to win (or lose), and he did.  Win that is.  I’d actually checked Praying Mantis out once a long time ago, and was pretty ‘meh’ on them as I recall, so my expectations were kind of jaded.  However, with each listen, these tunes got better.  Not sure they will end up being purchase-worthy, but definitely will go a little deeper beyond just the one album.  The recurring thought I had with most of these tracks was ‘unspectacular, but really, REALLY solid’.  I did have to scratch one of your submissions, as you sent me 26 minutes of music.
Other listening notes:  Dug the intro... big time; nice vocal harmonies; repetitive with the double bass kick - not thrashy though; great guitar solo; simplistic melody; really liked the rhythm section.
 
Final Ranking:
Lowdz - $5,400
TAC - $1,800
Bolsters - $1,400
Bosk - $800
Wolfking - $800

So, how you finished the final round is how you finished the entire competition.

Lowder... you earned this one.  Only one dud song all roulette, and I’ve made multiple purchases of what you sent.  I (and your competitors) bow to your musical prowess.   :hefdaddy 

To all of you (even those eliminated in the qualifying rounds), :evilmonkey:

Why I'm doing this?  Mostly for shits and giggles.  Not really doing this to discover new bands, just listen to some awesome music, and have fun

I had never intended to get "in to" new bands/albums, but I fialed at that miserably.  You don’t even want to know (and probably wouldn’t believe) how many albums I’ve purchased already.  Thankfully music is my one vice, I make a good living, and most importantly, I do the finances in the jingle household!  And I still haven’t had a solid listen to the all of the great bands/albums from rounds 4 and 5.  So Lowdz... your winnings will be used to pay for said purchases.  :biggrin:

I'll post some concluding thoughts and awards later.

With regard to Praying Mantis, I didn't find anything that great about their previous stuff. This album is certainly far better than anything else.
I like Pathfinder though!

Does naked lap of honour around Lowdz  mansion  :omg:

It does help having very similar musical taste I guess. You complete me you big bold Cannuck.  :heart
With regard to Praying Mantis, I didn't find anything that great about their previous stuff. This album is certainly far better than anything else.
I like Pathfinder though!
Cheers guys. It was fun.

Your victory now comes with an asterisk!

Bosk/Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Songs - Tamacun; Orion
God damn these were fun tune’s to listen to.  Completely 100% outside of the musical box I would normally be in.  And I’m really glad you insisted on my watching them live.  There’s a certain ‘je ne c’est quoi’ in listening/watching them live vs the studio recordings.  If it was just left to the latter, I think I likely would have quickly dismissed it.  There’s so much more energy in their live playing.
Other listening notes:  Dayum!  This puts the ‘fun’ in Funky.  Very cool.

:tup

Your description of your reaction pretty much mirrors my frame of mind when sending them to you, so that's cool that those songs had the desired impact.  Since you liked them, I strongly recommend watching this "tutorial" video they do:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfFt0R_-IEE  Even if you don't play a single note of guitar, seeing them break down one of their songs note-by-note and show you what techniques they are actually using is mindblowing.  NOBODY plays guitar like Gaby.  Nobody.  Her "triple strum" techniquie at 3:24-4:40, for example, is definitely a :omg: moment.

Just out of curiosity, what did you think of the Leaves' Eyes songs?  I know those didn't qualify, but just wondering if those might have changed the ranking any if they had been considered.  They are a "hit or miss" kind of band, so I'm really curious to know what you thought.

Haven't listened your Leaves Eyes suggestions yet. Though I did listen to the moast current song a while ago, and liked it plenty.

Top Shelf
TAC/Glass Mind
Songs - Haunting Regrets; Crepusculum Vehementis; Beyond Our Souls
God Bless you good citizen.  These three tracks were all genius, and instantly grabbed my attention.  Top notch.  Great talent, great sound, excellent compositions.  It’s a good thing I didn’t rely solely on the Grooveshark links, as they were demo-quality sound.  The actual album tracks are so much more sonically robust.  And what’s this??  They’re going to be on the ProgNation at Sea cruise in 10 days.  :happydance:  Best submissions by far.  By FAR.  Purchase is definitely impending.
Other listening notes:  Brilliant intro; Great guitar riffs; great percussion; killer fills and solos; Killer instrumental; More killer work on the skins.

Awesome! Glad you liked it. A dynamite album for sure.

The groove shark versions had a different vocalist. Someone much cleaner than the album I have. The vocals were the weak link but the guy sings with so much feeling that it has kind of a charm.

Metal-Archives lists two different releases. Didn't notice the different vocalist, just the overall production quality. I assume Grooveshark was the original 2008 release ... It sounds like it was recorded in a submarine.

Oh, that Praying Mantis album is fucking awesome.  Interesting pick for the final round.

And as a final post mortem, I just want to reiterate that I failed immensely at not getting attached to new bands/albums from this.  In fact, this roulette cost me more than my first roulette.  As I said, thank god music is my one and only vice.  So, here's the final tally.  I'm not going to list all the albums, just how many I bought (and the guilty party responsible)

At Vance (4) - lowdz
Brazen Abbot (2) - lowdz
Cloudscape (4) - Wolfking
Constantine (2) - TAC
Enchant (1) - Dr. DTVT
Glass Mind (1) - TAC
Kingcrow (1) - lonestar
Sacrum (2) - kirksnosehair/Elite
Silent Voices (1) - kirksnosehair
Stratovarius (1) - Bolsters
Subsignal (3) - Nekov
Sun Caged  (2) - TAC
Thunderstone (4) - Bolsters
Yargos (2) - Nekov

30 in total, and there's still a few more bands I know I want to check out, plus I've got another half dozen or so bookmarked on Spotify.  I ran out of time in between the end of the roulette, and priming my listening for ProgNation, so I still have to go back to rounds 2, 4 and 5 and dig a little deeper.  Beyond these purchases, I've listened to the full albums from 23 other submissions, all of which were enjoyed, some of which will still likely be purchased (looking straight at you Virgin Steele/Burning of Rome).

Award Ceremony

Fucker that cost me the most money:
Lowdz (6 albums).  My wallet gives you a big
                      :psychosane:

Honorable mentions to Bolsters, Nekov and TAC... who each compelled me to buy 5 albums.  You only get a single
                          :Debra:

Best Song:
Hard to chose amongst the 110 songs that were submitted, and without going back and listening to them all, I'm just going to wing it... and give a tie to Stratovarius/Unbreakable (Bolsters) and Leverage/Dreamworld (lowdz).  As I peruse the list of the winning songs, these two are the two who's melodies instantly jump back into my brain.

Best Album:
I gotta say, I think Glass Mind from TAC in the final round is my favorite album.  This decision might be a little biased, as that was the most recent one, and I listened to it a little extra because they were on the cruise.

Best Band:
Tie:Thunderstone (Bolsters); At Vance (lowdz).  I absolutely love Rick Altzi's voice at the moment, so no surprise there.  However, it was a very pleasant surprise to find Ollie Hartman on the earlier At Vance releases.
Honorable Mention to Subsignal.  Don't think I've listened to a song of their three albums that I didn't like or love.

Most improved song:
From the non-winning songs, which one do I (almost) regret not awarding money to?  It's gotta be Zook with Stone Sour/Absolute Zero.  Damn fine rockin tune.

And just in case you wanted to see the 'Mystery Band' list, here is what it was.

Amorphis
Anathema
Anubis Gate
At Vance - Lowdz
Circle II Circle
Cloudscape - wolfking
Devin Townsend
Bruce Dickinson - wolfking
Dio
Echolyn
Enchant - Dr. DTVT
Epica - Bosk1
Fates Warning
Gamma Ray - wolfking
Jeff Scot Soto
Judas Priest
Manimal
Rainbow
Sonata Arctica - wolfking
Steven Wilson - lonestar
Stryper - Bosk1
Subsignal - Nekov
Spiritual Beggars
Sun Caged - TAC
TNT
UFO
Y&T - Bosk1

A final thank you to everyone for introducing me to so much incredible music.  Sign of a great roulette - my ears win; my wallet loses.

jingle.boy out!

You never saw them on my last.fm either.  I've heard smatterings here and there... but like many other bands (Rainbow and Dio too), were just a tad under my radar back in the day.

edit: you need the fifth Thunderstone album for a start. :getoffmylawn:

It's Tools of Destruction btw.  I got the first two, and most recent two.  Not really sure why, but I was limiting myself to 4 albums.  Otherwise, I would've been in trouble just with Stryper (which I still have to figure out where to start).

Interesting about Spiritual Beggars, that wasn't one I even gave a thought too.  I'm not even the biggest fan of them but they do have quite a few killer albums.

And yeah, UFO are just awesome.

Anyway, whatever works for you!  I hope you're enjoying the massive amounts of new music at your disposal.   :tup

Fortunately it's a problem with only one solution.

Just listened to Zook's Lorenguard/Eve of Corruption.  It started meh, but picked up and turned out great.  Think I'll just leave that one on Spotify though.

I thought it was very good, but just not quite purchase-worthy.  I've got it flagged at Grooveshark.  I'll go back to it at some point.
