Title: FlyingBIZKIT's Roo Let v. Let's Get It On (Final Standings Inside!)
Post by: FlyingBIZKIT on March 18, 2015, 10:44:16 AM
Hey guys this is my first roulette so expect it to be simple and straightforward.

Rules:

- 8 Contestants
- 8 Rounds
- All Rounds will be Open. No themes.
- I will rank the songs 1-8 on how much I enjoy them. #1 getting 8 points, #2 getting 7 points, and so on.
- I will accept Youtube links or something that can be found on Spotify.


I will begin this as soon as I get 8 contestants, which shouldn't take too long. I'm reserving a spot for black_floyd for now as he said most likely take part. I have 3 people already interested, Scorpion, Nekov, and Seneca. So that leaves 4 spots open. Come quick!

Contestants:
1. senecadawg2
2. Scorpion
3. Nekov
4. Elitist.
5. Parama
6. Sacul
7. kingshmegland
8. black_floyd

And I now have 8 contestants. Thank you gentlemen for a quick and easy process.


Alright, as far as my tastes go, I'm what you would probably call a Steven Wilson fanboy, but I generally like anything. I'm not necessarily huge on Progressive Metal, but I'm willing to give more of that stuff a shot. For example, Pain of Salvation has been kind of hit or miss for me, but I haven't listened to a whole lot of them, so they won't be included on this list. And I'm willing to give them more chances, because all the bands I know and love today had to grow on me. I wasn't fond of DT or PT when I first heard them, but now they're among my favorites. Lately, I've been exploring different genres such as rap, funk, jazz, and blues. This shouldn't be too hard for any of you because I'm very open to new styles of music, and I generally like most of what I hear. Plus, my banned list will be pretty short:

Aerosmith
Agalloch
Alter Bridge
Anathema
Andrew W.K.
Animals as Leaders
The Aristocrats
Avenged Sevenfold
The Beatles
Between the Buried and Me
Blackfield
Blink182
Boston
Buckethead
Chevelle
Coheed and Cambria
Coldplay
Daft Punk
David Gray
The Dear Hunter
The Decemberists
Deep Purple
Devin Townsend
Dream Theater
dredg
The Flower Kings
Flying Colors
Foo Fighters
Gary Clark, Jr.
Haken
Hans Zimmer
Headspace
Imagine Dragons
Incubus
Iron Maiden
James LaBrie
Jethro Tull
John Coltrane
Johnny Cash
Katatonia
King Crimson
Led Zeppelin
Liquid Tension Experiment
Lord Huron
Mark Tremonti
The Mars Volta
Mastodon
Megadeth
Metallica
Miles Davis
Mr. Bungle
Muse
Nas
Nine Inch Nails (Anything Trent Reznor)
Nirvana
OneRepublic
Opeth
OSI
Pearl Jam
Periphery
The Pineapple Thief
Pink Floyd
Porcupine Tree
Protest the Hero
Queen
Queens of the Stone Age

Stevie Ray Vaughan
Stone Temple Pilots
Storm Corrosion
Susanne Sundfør
System of a Down
Tesseract
Thomas Giles
Tom Petty
Tool
Transatlantic
Ulver
Weezer
Yes

There might be more but that's good enough. I'll add more if I remember. The ones in bold letters are ones that are my favorites.

Alright, I posted the banned list in the OP. Everything is set to go, and we will go ahead and begin.

Round 1 will last a whole week, (is that too long or too short? Y'all give me some pointers and tips if necessary, this is my first roulette and need a feel for things) so whenever you guys get ready just send me a PM with your song choice.

Also, keep in mind that there are no themes and every round is open. So there's going to be a lot for you guys to choose from, no limits!

Well, 8 rounds with each round lasting a week is a kind of standard timing. It's recommended to wrap up the roulette in two months, and this schedule allows you to do exactly that.

Seems I'm a bit too late to play, but I'll follow.

And sorry about that, if I do  a future roulette, I'll probably add a few more contestants. I'll just see how things go this time around.

gotta enter this band before they get sniped by someone else, then

also curious as to what Pain of Salvation you've listened to, for... reasons  :hat

edit: hot damn, did I just notice an omission on the banned list that I actually mentally skipped going through my music list because I assumed it would be there. someone better plug that hole before this roulette ends  :lol

One of my fellow contestants mentioned maybe I could make the rounds shorter, and I agree with that. It's not going to take me a whole week to listen to all these songs and form a good opinion on them. I have a good bit of free time and as long as you guys don't mind I can always end this round sooner. Let me know what you think.

Round 1 Results

#8(1 Point): Nekov – “Welcome to Nowhere” - Frost*

I feel bad for putting this one last because I still thought it was a good song, it just didn’t quite hit me like the others did. This is a band I’ve been meaning to check out for a while and still really plan to. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard a song or two from them before, and I remember liking one of those a lot. I’m still willing to give this band a lot of listens, maybe this just wasn’t the most compatible song. I just didn’t feel that there was much about this one that really stood out.  Still though, it was a good song, and thanks for the submission! Honestly, this probably could have received a 7 on a scale that’s 1-10, but I like the ranking idea better because I feel it makes it more challenging for the person submitting the song and me as well. Plus, I like ranking things.


#7(2 Points): kingshmegland – “Life Simulator” – Slow Motion Reign

I like this one. I’m a big fan of the vocal melodies and the whole song kind of has an eerie feeling to it. It’s got somewhat of a dreamy atmosphere as well, which made it really enjoyable. I really don’t have a lot to say about this one except that it’s a good song but I found most of the other ones just even more enjoyable. Good song choice!


#6(3 Points): Scorpion – “Glory Box” – Portishead

You and senecadawg probably had the most unique entries out of all, for obvious reasons. This one is really slow and laid back, and I swear I’ve heard this on some kind of movie before, like a final scene or something. It’s a good song and her vocals are great. It makes me want to walk through a desert with a cool ass camel and a socket wrench in my left hand.


#5(4 Points): Parama – “Carnival” – Thank You Scientist

When first listening to this, a more progressive Coheed and Cambria came to mind. It’s a really fun tune and I like all the different instruments used in the making of this. The only thing is, I can’t really listen to this so much without thinking of Coheed and Cambria. The music is somewhat similar I feel, but it’s really just the vocals. Just not quite as high as Claudio’s. This isn’t a bad thing, but it feels like something I’ve heard already. Still though, the song is really good!


#4(5 Points): Elite – “The Doorway” – Spock’s Beard

Spock’s Beard is a band I tried checking out about a year ago, but just never got around to it. After listening to a handful of songs, I stopped and just never came back. The Doorway is definitely the longest of the submissions, but that’s to be expected when Neal Morse is involved. I really dig the piano intro and despite being 11 minutes, it’s not as proggy as expected. It’s fairly straightforward in my opinion, which is a nice change of pace from other Neal Morse stuff I’ve heard before. My favorite part of the song is the last minute and a half or so, and the guitar work is admirable throughout the whole song. Great submission!


#3(6 Points): black_floyd – “Muttersprache” – Gordian Knot

This one would have ranked lower earlier, but now it has found its way up to third place. I was expecting something just like Liquid Tension Experiment, but I feel this song has its own identity. It doesn’t feel like a bunch of recycled instrumental passages, it’s got a fresh feeling to it. It’s constantly changing and the middle section of the song is simply beautiful. I certainly wasn’t expecting it to have much emotional appeal to it and was thinking it was just going to be more by the book, but you surprised me with a really good song. Thanks!


#2(7 Points): Sacul – “Where is Now?” – David Maxim Micic

Wow, what a song! This one hooked me right from the beginning with the beautiful piano intro. I’ve seen you mention this guy before but I never really gave it too much thought about checking him out for some reason. I’m not sure why I did that. This felt very original, and while the riffs early in the song have that “djenty” feel (a word I seldom use) to them, it feels unique and exciting with all the other stuff going on during these parts. I absolutely love the part where it steps up to a heavier level. I don’t know what to call it but his “mouth solo” is pretty fucking great. This song is wonderful and it hit me in the most perfect way possible. But how could it not be ranked #1?

#1(8 Points): senecadawg2 – “Dona Nobis Pacem 2”- Max Richter (The Leftovers)

As much as I’ve enjoyed every song submitted, this one takes the cake. Maybe I’ve just got a soft spot for soundtracks because this one makes me feel emotional and I haven’t even seen the show yet. I love how the song starts out really quiet and gradually builds up over the course. I love love love the strings in this piece, as you probably would have predicted. This is one of those pieces where I can just lie here and close my eyes and really feel something. My only complaint is that it ends before I know it. This one is great and it’s the number one song of the first round for me!




All these songs ranged from good to very good, to great, to fantastic. Thank you all!

You can go ahead and send me the songs for the next round if you're ready!

I've received 5 entries for round 2 so far. I still need them from Elite, Nekov, and Sacul. Since I had originally planned to spend one week each round, it will be completely fine if I don't get the songs today or tomorrow. We are ahead of schedule anyway but it sounds like most people would like a somewhat speedy roulette, which is fine by me. So there's no rush at all, just letting you all know :)

Round 2 Results:

#8(1 Point): Scorpion – “The Transfiguration Fear” – Sigh

You were right: the vocals just do not do it for me. I don’t hate them, but I think I’d enjoy this song more if it was instrumental. I still like the song, but the vocals bring it down for me and unfortunately puts it at last place. Still, the guitar work in this song is badass. The latter half of the song is the best, probably because it’s more focused on the instruments, and the solos are very cool. Harsh vocals are really hit or miss with me, and I can never explain why I like/dislike them. Send me as many sad pandas as needed! :sadpanda: :sadpanda: :biggrin:

#7(2 Points): Elite – “Dark Water” – Agent Fresco

This is a neat little song, kind of reminds me of Haken going in a poppy direction, in a good way. It’s got a good vibe and that piano break near the end is superb. I really like the vocalist, that’s why I said it reminded me of Haken a little bit. I’ve never even heard this band before but I’m definitely going to check more of their stuff out!

#6(3 Points): senecadawg2 – “9 Crimes” – Damien Rice

Ah, Seneca, yet another slower emotional song. This time, it’s not at the top, but it’s nice, sweet song. I get this feeling you may have sent me this a long time ago, because it sounds a little bit familiar. I don’t remember well, though. I enjoy the dual vocals from both Damien and whoever the chick is. This one didn’t really get to me as much as I thought it would, but it’s still a beautiful song. Thanks bro.

#5(4 Points): black_floyd – “Ancestry of the Antichrist” - Byzantine

Ah, floydy, yet another… wait. No.

I like this one. The harsh vocals in this song actually really click with me, and I remember hearing something from them before, maybe from you, and I really enjoyed it as well. As much as I like the heavy parts, I like the “Atonement”-esque section in the middle, and the following guitar solo is sick as hell. This band really knows how to be METAL. And that’s a good thing. Whoever the guitarist is, well, he’s great. Thanks, this one is kick ass.

#4(5 Points): Sacul – “Sowing Season” – Brand New

This is one big band and album I really need to check out. I tried it one time a while back but didn’t remember anything about it. This song shows some real emotion for sure, even if I haven’t studied the lyrics. The mood of this song is really dark, especially when he starts yelling. I’m definitely going to be spinning this album ASAP because this first song has me amazed and hooked. Thank you dude!

#3(6 Points): kingshmegland – “The End is Beautiful” – Echolyn

This song actually caught me off guard, it sounded pretty weird at first but it only got better as it went! I’ve never even heard of this band, but they definitely have me intrigued now. I love the “Drive in circles, wait for the words” section as I think the vocals in this song are fantastic. I can’t really describe why I like this song so much, maybe that it feels so original and fresh. Awesome tune!

#2(7 Points): Parama – “Amazing Flight” – Ayreon

Holy shit, very unexpected. I didn’t even think much when I saw the artist you sent because I knew they were a popular progressive metal band on here, a genre I’m ironically not so fond of. I really need to stop that shit. This doesn’t sound like any progressive metal I’ve heard. It’s almost got a bluesy feel at the intro, and it’s really groovy. For a second I was waiting for Stevie Ray Vaughan to jump on in with a solo. My favorite part is probably the solos at the end with the incorporation of the flute, it’s so sweet.

#1(8 Points): Nekov – “Summer’s Glory” – Alcest

Damn dude, first round you finish last and this round you finish first! What’s your secret? Inconsistency, probably. Nah, this song is honestly my favorite of all of them so far, including round 1. This song is pure beauty, from start to finish. My friend and I were actually wanting to write and play some music and this is the style of music I’d probably love to play most. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this track, and you did a fine job of picking it. I was listening to all these songs while driving home today and this one just stood out on its own. I could have this on repeat and I probably wouldn’t get tired of it. Thanks so much for this, I haven’t heard something this nice in a long time.

Great! I think the best way to connect with that Brand New album is through the lyrics - I'm sure you'll identify with them. And once you do it, it will destroy your soul.

Wait, you never listened to Ayreon? I'm disappoint :lol . But thanks Parama for fixing it. You should also check The Human Equation - Arjen's masterpiece.

Post by: Parama on March 24, 2015, 03:40:59 PM
Yeah, The Human Equation is probably the best Ayreon album, but the single songs off Into The Electric Castle work better out of context, and also are generally better than the best The Human Equation songs. Arjen totally does the Progressive Metal thing some but Ayreon's a lot more than that. And Ayreon is only one of his projects, there's also Star One, Ambeon, his solo albums, Guilt Machine, The Gentle Storm (literally out today I think  :lol ) and probably more I don't even remember.

though I'm tempted to send more prog metal just to see what happens now  :lol

Y'all are some fucking impatient ass people. My god.


Jk. Here we go.


Round 3 Results:

#8(1 Point): black_floyd – “Insect” – Spiral Architect

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get into anything by this band. This isn’t terrible, I’d still give it a 6/10. It just feels kinda disjointed to me, and I’m not too big on the vocalist. They are damn good at their instruments though. I see why you like this album so much, I just wish I could as well. Thanks for the song though!

#7(2 Points): kingshmegland – “The Caudal Lure” – Karnivool

This has been a very tough round to rank, and this is a very good song, I just happened to like 6 more songs better. I’m still gonna try and get into this band, this song was rocking, I liked it a lot. Don’t know if you’ve listened to Chevelle at all, but it kinda reminded me of a more progressive version of them, which I think is cool. Nice riffs and the vocalist is good. Cool song!

#6(3 Points): Sacul – “Building Steam with a Grain of Salt” - DJ Shadow

Cool song, I feel like I’ve heard this before, especially the piano melody that is played throughout. So far I’m liking the variety you’ve sent me, you’ve done well Sacul. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to rank this any higher. But I like how laid back it feels and the funky section in the middle is too cool. Plus, I always thought the use of samples in songs was a neat thing, and it really works well with this one. Nice!

#5(4 Points): Nekov – “Heaven Alive” – Oceansize

I’ve never listened to them, but I’ve heard their name tossed around quite a few times on the forum. Is this that band that Zantera is in love with? That might be where I heard them from. I like it, this band plays really tight and this song is kickass. Everything about this song is awesome, especially the vocals. I’ll be sure to check more of them out, I bet they have a lot of other great material. Thanks for the rec!

#4(5 Points): Scorpion – “Death is the Road to Awe” – Clint Mansell (The Fountain)

Beautiful! You knew something like this would rank pretty high on here, but why is it not at the top? Because you’re Scorpion, and that’s not allowed. Just kidding, there was just a lot of tough ass competition this round, but this is a beautiful track. Seneca actually sent me this about a year ago, so good job on this one. I feel like this would have ranked higher on another round, but 5 points ain’t so bad. I also need to see this movie, I hear it’s great. There’s a ton of emotion in this piece, it’s epic!

#3(6 Points): senecadawg2 – “Slow Show” – The National

Now I know why my friend Cody loves this band so much! This song was so beautiful. These last 3 ranks were so hard to figure out, it was almost a tie between this one and the next two. As much as I like the low nearly monotonous vocals, the guitar playing in this song is great. I adore the melody and this song puts me in a really good mood. Can’t wait to hear more.

#2(7 Points): Parama – “City Has No Empathy (Your Sentimental Lie)" - Caligula's Horse

What a badass song. Seriously. The chorus is perfect. I love the breakdown near the end. Fuck this city. That is all.


#1(8 Points): Elite – “Where Everything’s Perfect” – Jolly

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! The children know what’s up. This song is my favorite of Round 3, and it was close. Very unique and original. Out of all the songs, I listened to this one over and over. I couldn’t get enough of it, and it’s awesome. Haunting and cheerful at the same time, something like that is pretty hard to pull off. It’s funny I typed in Jolly on Spotify and some Spanish dude or something of the like showed up, and it was like some trance pop shit :lol

my favorite of all the songs I've sent thus far (including round 4) is the one that ranked the lowest out of the first three, and my entry this round is my least favorite or tied for my least favorite about with Amazing Flight, so it has a chance of being #1 in this round by my reverse-o-fake logic, yes

Round 4 Results:

#8(1 Point): Scorpion – “Silent Film” – Dog Fashion Disco

Man, if this thing was in reverse, you’d be winning this whole contest right now. Sorry man, this one doesn’t do a whole lot for me. I believe you sent me something else from them that I liked better. It just doesn’t hold up to the other songs in this round. Sad Pandas Galore!

#7(2 Points): Parama – “Judas Unrepentant” – Big Big Train

Cool song, I like the chorus a lot. Other than that, I can’t rank it much higher. They almost sound like Transatlantic in a way, but that’s a good thing. I’m not sure if they have any affiliation with them or not.

#6(3 Points): black_floyd – “Body Destroyed, Brain Intact” – Dysrhythmia

I like this jam, really fun and exciting listen. A lot of time changes, and badass riffs. I really like the drums in this one, constantly changing and a fuck ton of tom fills. Awesome. I like it better than Enigma Machine… that’s fo sho.

#5(4 Points): Elite – “Lost” – Voyager

This one rocks, and I’m surprised I haven’t heard them before. Definitely going on my never ending list of bands I need to check out. I like the guitar tones in this song, and the atmosphere makes me feel like I’m in space or something. Pretty damn sweet.

#4(5 Points) – Nekov – “Autumn Moonlight, Pt.1” – Autumn Moonlight

This is beautiful, really straight-forward, simple beauty. I always appreciate stuff like this because it’s not so much stuff you have to focus and figure out what they are playing, you just sit back and passively listen. Makes for good study music and relaxing.

#3(6 Points) – kinghsmegland – “Mantis” – Umphrey’s McGee

You always find stuff that I never even dreamed of hearing of. Never in my life would I have thought I’d listen to a band called Umphrey’s McGee. But hey, I just did. Really proggy, love it. There are some amazing solos in this song, especially at the end. This song goes through a lot of changes, yet it feels really cohesive and flows well. The vocals sounded a bit weird to me at first, but after several listens, I got to really liking them a lot.

#2(7 Points) – Sacul – “Cold Front” – Hammock

This is definitely some beautiful stuff, listening to this one as you’re falling asleep is an incredible feeling. I love stuff like this: atmospheric, simple, beautiful. I’ve been listening to a lot of Storm Corrosion lately and listening to songs like this, and Ljudet Innan, just makes me feel really good. It clears my mind and I just let the music enter.

#1(8 Points) – senecadawg2 – “Cold” – Lunatic Soul

I find it a bit funny that two songs in this round have “Cold” in their title and they both placed highest. This song is so chill, and cold. I get an OSI vibe while listening but it sounds completely refreshing. The vocals are really soothing and beautiful. My favorite part of this song is the atmosphere. I really love when a song title is so accurately represented in the song itself. This song makes me feel like I’d be in an igloo. Nice pick, and that gets you 8 points yet again.

Round 5 Results:

#8(1 Point): black_floyd – “Inside” – Pain of Salvation

I don’t know, I just cannot get into them. They get so much love on this forum but I have yet to really get into them. Everything I’ve heard from them is just kinda meh to me. I’m still going to give them a chance, though. I’ll give The Perfect Element a listen sometime. The music just doesn’t do much for me, and the vocals surely don’t. Gildenlow just isn’t my cup of tea I guess.


#7(2 Points): senecadawg2 – “Smoke and Mirrors” – Gotye

Not bad, I feel like it’s just a little long for its own good. Not much I can really say about this one except that it just didn’t wow me. Maybe it’s just the song. It’s got a good sound to it but I’ll check the other stuff from Gotye and see what I can find.


#6(3 Points): Elite – “Tabula Rasa” – Soen

Same, as it didn’t really do much for me. It’s got a cool sound and the vocals are nice. I like the Opethy riff around 2:00 though, that’s pretty sick. Still, a good song, and the album art is really neat.


#5(4 Points): Scorpion – “Fishies” – The Cat Empire

Haha, this one is funny. Especially since I’ve been fishing a lot lately, even though this song isn’t really about fishing. I dig the trumpet, it’s what makes the song.


#4(5 Points): Sacul – “Raver” – Burial

You were right, this is a good song to listen to at night, and in fact, I did it while I was driving back to my apartment. It’s chill, very laid back and it’s got a good beat. This stuff is nice to listen to every once in a while. I like what you’ve been sending me so far. Keep it up!


#3(6 Points): Parama – “Buzzcut Season” – Lorde

Risky, yes. It sure paid off though, I think. You were expecting last and you were far from it. I’ve heard a few tracks from this album, such as “Royals” and “Team”. I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve heard from her, and this song impresses me as well. She can really sing and I love how her songs sound, as they can really breathe. Good choice!


#2(7 Points): Nekov – “Naïve” – Demians

This song is great. The guitar tones, the vocals, everything just works so well. There’s nothing really fancy about this song, but it just has really good melodies, and it’s catchy. Never even heard of them either, so this is cool!


#1(8 Points): kingshmegland – “More of a Climb, Less of a Walk” – This Day & Age

Kinda like Nekov’s song, nothing over the top, but it just has some great melodies. I love the vocalist, he’s got a wonderful voice. And once again, I don’t think I’ve heard of any of the bands you’ve shown me so far, except maybe Karnivool :lol. This song is beautiful, love the atmosphere. Good driving song, too.




Current Standings:

1. senecadawg2 (27 Points)
1. Sacul (27 Points)
3. Parama (26 Points)
4. Nekov (25 Points)
5. kingshmegland (24 Points)
6. Elite (22 Points)
7. black_floyd (15 Points)
8. Scorpion (14 Points)

off her album the other ones I really like are A World Alone and Bravado (and Team is great too)
Swingin' Party and Everybody Wants To Rule The World are both great covers too

I'll send when I get home  :lol

re: PoS entry: Not the absolute best entry from them but yeah they're probably not your cup of tea if you don't like Inside  :lol
Idioglossia will always be a top 5 song (of all time) for me though

Round 6 Results:

#8(1 Point): Nekov - "Faded Photographs" - Von Hertzen Brothers

Decent song, just didn't really do anything for me. I listened to it a good bit, just waiting for it to click and nothing really happened. Still not bad though.

#7(2 Points): senecadawg2 - "The Weight of Loss is Whole" - Braveyoung

Didn't do a whole lot for me. It's definitely something good to listen to on a rainy day, which is how it has been over here. I don't know, it just didn't hit me in anyway, nice composition but it was just a little dull sounding to me.

#6(3 Points): Sacul - "Bullits Dominae" - Pure Reason Revolution

Like the others, still didn't do much for me, but I liked this one better. Not a whole lot I can say about it, but the electronic influences were pretty cool early on.

#5(4 Points): Elite - "Dance of the Manatee" - Fair to Midland

There were things about this song I really liked, and things I didn't care for. The chorus and most of the vocals were awesome, but I thought the "Bigger they are the harder they fall" vocal section was a bit weird. FTM is a band I've been meaning to check out sometime, I'm pretty intrigued.

#4(5 Points): Scorpion - "Hills of Eternity" - Buckethead

Ah, good old Buckethead. I've only listened to a handful of his songs, but never anything really chill like this one. This was very good, just simple and effective. I completely forgot Buckethead existed, but this makes me interested to listen to his stuff again, I've never heard this side of him before.  :chill

#3(6 Points): black_floyd - "Vow" - Garbage

Went into this song thinking I wouldn't care too much for it. This was actually really good, as it actually didn't sound like garbage. I just love the '90s sound of this song. I've heard a song or two of the 2000s Garbage but this is so much better. Love the vocalist.

#2(7 Points): Parama - "The Road of Bones" - IQ

Wow, I've never heard anything like this before. This was awesome. It's so chill and beautiful at the same time. This song has a wonderful atmosphere, and I love when the drums kick in. The bass line so sweet, and the blocks (or whatever they are) just makes this song even cooler. I love the end too when it really all kicks in, it's pretty epic.

#1(8 Points): kingshmegland - "Dead Trees" - Anubis

Beautiful. Fun. Awesome. Once again, you find the best song of the round. The vocals are my favorite part of the song. It's such a catchy song, and makes a great driving tune. The lyrics are really good too. Oh and guess what? Never heard of this band. The chorus is wonderful and I've played this one so many times, I can't get enough of it.



Oh what a change in the standings!

Current Standings:

1.   Parama (33 Points)

Round 7 Results:

#8(1 Point): kinghsmegland - "Sorrow" - Aisles

Sorry pal, your streak has come to an end. Musically, this one is pretty good, but the vocals just didn't fit right with me. I'll still check out the other stuff on this album though.

#7(2 Points): Nekov - "Lucifer's Lament" - Nightingale

Had too much of a modern radio rock feel to me for some reason, and nothing really stood out to me, unfortunately.

#6(3 Points): Scorpion - "Falling Further" - Fate's Warning

I'm assuming this is the band that Jim Matheos is in right? I like his work in OSI, for sure. So that's a plus. OKAY DAMN. The song was good. Still not really up my alley but there wasn't anything wrong with this song.

#5(4 Points): Parama - "Under the Pines" - Bodies of Water

Cool song, it's got a nice indie sound to it. I shall use this song when I'm exploring the lake.

#4(5 Points): senecadawg2 - "Song for a Dead Friend" - Kevin Gilbert

Pretty beautiful song, and I would probably rank it higher if I was in a really emotional mood. The lyrics are nice, very sad.  :metal

#3(6 Points): Elite - "Daedalus" - Thrice

Awesome! My buddy Matthew likes Thrice and he told me to get into them, this song serves as a good starting point I think. Very nice atmsophere.

#2(7 Points): black_floyd - "I Ain't Trippin'" - Too $hort

THIS SONG GOES HARD MANE. But forreal, this is actually pretty slick. I kinda laughed when I first listen to it, but to me it sounds like the rap you'd listen to then shuffling a deck of cards or peeling a banana. Just a chill phase. I like his little line: Oakland Californ I A. Thanks for sending me something like this and not that radio friendly shit rap that comes on today.

#1(8 Points): Sacul - "Cold War" - Janelle Monáe

What an awesome song. On the first listen I just knew that this was gonna be repeated a lot. It's just a fun and cheerful song, and I guess that replicates my mood as of late, so this one worked out really well for you! She's got a good voice.  :tup



Current Standings:

1. Sacul (38 Points)
2. Parama (37 Points)
3. senecadawg2 (34 Points)
4. kingshmegland (33 Points)
5. Elite (32 Points)
6. black_floyd (28 Points)
6. Nekov (28 Points)
8. Scorpion (22 Points)

It's looking like the top 5 still might be in it.

Sacul and Parama are battling it out at the top but seneca and king are waiting to push ahead to first as well. Then there's Elite, the dark horse  :tup


Nekov lets floyd catch up to him as they discuss why they don't want to be placed next to Scorpion.

I mean who would wanna be placed next to Scorpion?  :lol :biggrin:

Idioglossia isn't even the best song on TPE, let alone PoS's best song. The Frame also isn't my favourite Oceansize track, but I'm not too familiar with the band.

#8(1 Point): Elite - "I Am" - Theocracy

Not bad, but it just didn't do much for me at all. There were some kick ass riffs here and there, but the vocals weren't my cup of tea, and it was a little too long for its own good. I just can't seem to get into a lot of prog metal.  :-\

#7(2 Points): Sacul - "Becoming Insane" - Infected Mushroom

Cool, but still not up my alley. I would have probably ranked this higher if it were instrumental, honestly. It's got a fun rhythm to it and I can see it being a cool party song, but that's about it for me

#6(3 Points): Scorpion - "Come Hell or High Water" - Native Construct

This one was pretty cool. I really dig the parts with harsh vocals and the very proggy instrumental parts. This was a fun listen and I look forward to checking this band out. Cool orchestra sounds too :metal

#5(4 Points): senecadawg2 - "Spanish Sahara" - Foals

I really like the atmosphere of this one. I like the gradual build up, and the video for this one was pretty sweet. It kinda makes me feel like I'm underwater or something. Will be listening to this as I fall asleep tonight.

#4(5 Points): kingshmegland - "Barfly" - Moon Safari

This one reminded me so much of Transatlantic, but in a good way. I love the magical solo around two and a half minutes, and all in all, this one was a pretty song. I also love the beginning and ending riff of the song, it's kick ass!  Oh, and yeah, never heard of them :lol

#3(6 Points): Nekov - "Your Hand In Mine" - Explosions in the Sky

I've listened to this band before, but not much. It's a beautiful song, but I like some of the other post rockish entries better. This one is still beautiful for sure. It's such a cool genre, how gorgeous and relaxing it can be. Definitely going to be listening to more of them.

#2(7 Points): black_floyd - "Firestarter" - The Prodigy

This song is awesome. Sounds like a boss battle for a video game. It sounds so familiar, I swear. This was a fun one to drive to, and the vocals are pretty interesting. Fyuh Stotta! This sounds like soundtrack material for a Fast and Furious movie too.

#1(8 Points): Parama - "Comforting Sounds" - Mew

Hell, like there was any contest. This is not only by far the best entry of this round, but easily the best entry of this entire roulette. No wonder you were saving this one for last. It's incredible. Despite what seneca says, this song is great. I love the vocalist, as you can really hear the emotion in the voice. The instrumental section till the end of the song is some of the best music I have heard in my entire life. I looked up the meaning of the song, and it just made it that much more enjoyable. Not a lot of songs can make me feel extremely emotional, but this one sure as hell did. I've listened to this at least 20 times already. And with this perfect entry, you've won my roulette  :azn:



Final Standings:

1. Parama (45 Points)
2. Sacul (40 Points)
3. senecadawg2 (38 Points)
3. kingshmegland (38 Points)
5. black_floyd (35 Points)
6. Nekov (34 Points)
7. Elite (33 Points)
8. Scorpion (25 Points)

Comforting Sounds is one of the most boring songs I have ever had the displeasure of listening to.

Firestarter is pretty awesome though.

Also, glad that you kinda sorta like Native Construct, I guess? You can check out the entire album on their bandcamp, it's amazing.
