Banned list
This list will not include every artist that's banned, but rather the most popular ones or those I feel strong about. To see the full list, refer to my RYM profile (under "music", use "Search Saculs78's music for" to browse my ratings by artist, year, genre, etc.). Basically, any album with at least a 4 out of 5 rating in my RYM collection means that artist is banned. Anything with a 3.5 or less, you can send me stuff from them as long as I have no rated that release. Also, some ratings on my to-listen list are outdated so just use them as references.

This section has 3 parts, first one being my very favorite artists, those I hold dear and have explored all or most of their work and enjoy a big part of it. Second part has those I like quite a bit and have explored some of their work. Because there's a huge amount of stuff I feel just positive or neutral about, you can consult that in my RYM by looking at albums in the 3 and 3.5 ratings, or using the search functions for bands before sending. Finally, thought of including all those bands I don't really enjoy much or that bore me.

Tastes
The following section describes pretty much what I like and don't in every one of these genres and subgenres, plus up to 5 of my favorite albums from each and records or bands that I've tried and not enjoyed.

Also, some cool statistics (https://rateyourmusic.com/stats/userstats?user=Saculs78) from my RYM: seems most of my ratings are of albums from the 2010's, but the 2000s have the highest rated average and are close in # of scores. However, you can notice a big gap between those and the 90s, and an even bigger one with the rest. What this means is that I'm a modern listener and the further I go back in time, the less likely I am to enjoy an album. Dunno exactly why this happens, I guess I just have a harder time connecting with stuff prior to the 90s, although there are a handful of records I love from those years. Seems I'm the opposite of those "born in le wrong generation" folks :P


Rock

Alternative / Indie Rock

I'm going to be quite loose here as I don't really know much of these, or I've already covered several artists in some of the other genres.

What I like
I think stuff that doesn't sound like a Radiohead, Pixies, The White Stripes, or Muse clone it's welcomed. Stuff that goes into creative directions while still being catchy and enjoyable seems to work best for me, but just very strong songwriting will be fine.

What I don't like
Generic hipster crap. Or generic anything I guess :P

Fav albums

Art / Experimental Rock

This ain't a very clearly defined genre but rather a way to put together rock artists that make music far from conventional dad rock and usually blend genres and styles and try new sounds and song structures. Many "prog" artists I love tend to be classified like this as well.

What I like
Love me atmospheric music, catchy choruses, mix of genres and styles, and much creativity. I tend to prefer modern stuff although there are some oldies I enjoy much.

What I don't like
Kinda hard to tell, but if your music doesn't fit those things above, I likely won't connect with it. There's also something about certain kinds of melodies and chord progressions that were used a lot throughout the 70s that are prominent on, say, David Bowie's output from that era, that I don't enjoy. Some of those cues are present on some modern artists in the indie/alternative rock or post-hardcore scenes. Also, the more experimental stuff can be pretty hit-or-miss.

Fav albums

Post-Rock

I realize I've listened to quite a few post-rock albums, even if I'm not a huge fan of the genre. However, as I've explored it in some interesting ramifications, I've come to know pretty much what works for me and what doesn't.

What I like
I definitely prefer the second wave of the genre, and some of the first wave as well. I like very imaginative, creative music that really merits being called post-rock, and not derivative stuff - Sigur Rós are one of my favorite bands for example. Also some kind of emotional impact is always welcomed. Sampling like GYBE! usually do as well. The best stuff is usually blended with other genres and styles.

What I don't like
Crescendocore like Explosions in the Sky or Mono, just don't. I mean, I don't mind crescendos in my music, but when that's all a band's got, I get bored. Very ambient stuff may not be my cup of tea as well do be careful.

Fav albums

Progressive Rock

Although according to RYM this is the genre with most albums in my collection, I don't really like prog.

What I like
I'm definitely more of a fan of what I call "Atmospheric prog", which is pretty much all those bands from the late 90s and the 2000s commonly labeled as "prog" that have really nothing to do with the 70s genre. These artists tend to focus on simpler song structures, moody and atmospheric pieces, emotional impact, and occasionally using mellotrons or synths, etc. Groups like Anathema, Porcupine Tree (and Steven Wilson's body of work), Riverside, Gazpacho and David Maxim Micic I dig a lot, but also some albums, like Opeth's Damnation, or even Pink Floyd's DSotM and WYWH, and Mike Oldfield's Ommadawn are somehow in this vein. I'd even argue that Radiohead and dredg are a little proggy in this sense.

What I don't like
Technical wankery. Look, I don't mind it as long as it does fit the song and isn't there for the sake of it, like DT often do. Probably why I never got into lots of 70s prog, although I've enjoyed some Yes (CttE has some amazing moments ruined by obnoxious technical sections that come out of nowhere).

And cheese. For some reason, as time goes by, I like cheesy music less and less. Dunno why, just makes me kind of uncomfortable these days. I don't mind a little cheese if the music appeals me in general, but be very careful with this.

So some artists I'm not fond of for other reasons are Rush, Coheed & Cambria, Beardfish, Cardiacs, Pain of Salvation and Genesis.

Fav albums
Shoegaze

I haven't explored this particular genre much, but I like stuff influenced by it.

What I like
I love that wall of sound in many genres, like in Devin Townsend's music...

What I don't like
...however, when that's the only idea a band can pull off, like My Bloody Valentine, well...

Fav albums


Metal


Alternative Metal

I don't even know if this is a genre or just a nice way of not saying "nu-metal", but I'm guiding myself by the albums RYM puts under this, so.

What I like
Unique bands that mix styles and do their own thing. Great riffs, memorable melodies.

What I don't like
Linkin Park or Limp Biskit clones. Avoid at all costs :P

Fav albums

Death / Black Metal

I've tried both classic and modern music from these genres, and they're not for me.

What I like
I don't mind some growls or blast beats in my music as as it's just an element among other ideas. Just making it the focal point of the music won't work with me.

What I don't like
Basically anything that can fit quite into these genres. Even hipster stuff like Alcest and Deafheaven aren't my thing at all. So be extremely careful when sending something like this. I've also tried Opeth beyond Damnation (which I love), Agalloch to no avail.

Fav albums

Progressive Metal

I guess you could say this is the genre that got me into music as a whole, thus I've had some time to explore it and know pretty much what I like, but there's still space for surprises.

What I like
As usual, blend of styles, very creative ideas, strong songwriting, etc. Basically anything that you can't use the word "generic" to describe it.

What I don't like
Dream Theater clones or Djent stuff like Animals as Leaders. Just don't. Also same comment about cheese I made before stands here as well. For some reason I don't really like it when it's mixed with Thrash or Power Metal.

Fav albums

Symphonic / Power Metal

It seems most people who get into metal have had a phase in which they've inevitably listened to this genre and have sticked to it or moved on. I was never into these and several roulettes and Plug.dj sessions have just reaffirmed my believes.

What I like
Uuuhhh... I like the Wheel of Time song by Blind Guardian because it's well-written and epic, but that's about it.

What I don't like
Basically everything  :lol They're just one of those genres in which there are like a million bands that all sound very similar to each other and could be described as generic, some way cheesier than others. They just don't float my boat, but you're welcome to try at your own risk.

Fav albums


Electronic
Downtempo
This is more of a loose label for electronic music that's just chill and relaxing.

What I like
A great atmosphere, soft vocals, analog keyboards/synths, warm, soft beats, simple melodies, somehow catchy songs. Air are a great band on this regard.

What I don't like
Generic sounds, really. Any artist using preset sounds just bores the crap out of me. For some reason I'm not a big fan of Boards of Canada - I know they're IDM or whatever, but their music is pretty relaxing yet not really appealing to me for the most part.

Fav albums

Experimental

Another loose label for stuff that blends many genres or just doesn't really fit anywhere (or that I'm too lazy to make a separate entry for).

What I like
Curious mixture of styles, sounds, ideas, great melodies, etc.

What I don't like
Overly pretentious crap, harsh noise, excessive glitches. Lack of melodies.

Fav albums
Trip-hop
It's one of my favorite genres so I've listened to a LOT of this stuff but there's still much left to explore. Trip-Hop influences on other genres is always a plus for me.

What I like
Creative ideas, mix of styles, memorable melodies. Lo-fi beats. Great atmosphere. Emotional impact.

What I don't like
Artists like Tricky bore me, his songs are very basic in terms of songwriting and structure and get boring quick. Stuff that just imitates the big names and does nothing unique at all is not my thing. I kinda dislike moaning female vocals on this (and in general).

Fav albums

Others

Ambient / Drone

This tends to be more of a miss than a hit kind of music for me.

What I like
Very interesting, unique soundscapes. Music with ambient sections, mostly heavy or intense stuff. Short tracks. Laidback music in general. I think I just don't really like ambient / drone music on its pure form but I can love records with much influence from it. I like some drone metal like Boris' Feedbacker.

What I don't like
Pure synths, just no. Very sparse songwriting. Stuff that only works as background music. Drone metal like Boris' Flood, stuff that drags with no interesting riffs.

Fav albums

Art / Dream / Progressive / Chamber / Ambient / Synth Pop // Pop Rock

I don't know much pop music so decided to put all these into one thing.

What I like
Catchy melodies of course, but that don't feel derivative. Creative or unusual instrumentation like Kate Bush and St. Vincent. Focus on songwriting in general instead of just catchy ideas. I like music with some emotional impact.

What I don't like
Generic radio pop like Carly Rae Jepsen or Grimes. Catchiness based solely on repeating the same words over and over is not very good in general.

Fav albums

Folk

I don't think I've really explored much of this but I like some of what I've heard.

What I like
Creative, heartfelt melodies. Very honest performances. Unique styles. Varied instrumentation (piano is always welcomed).

What I don't like
Lyrics-driven songs with boring instrumentation, like Bob Dylan. Or any Dylan clone. Generic singer-songwriter stuff.

Fav albums

Hip-Hop / Instrumental Hip-Hop

I'm pretty new to this and don't know much stuff and am open to more!

What I like
I think I tend to prefer modern records and experimental stuff, like Death Grips, despite not being a huge fan of them. J Dilla, Nujabes, Deltron 3030, and DJ Krush are ok. I love DJ Shadow and some Aesop Rock.

What I don't like
Tried some old-school stuff like ATCQ, Beastie Boys, and N.W.A. but they weren't really my cuppa tea.

Fav albums

Industrial

I really need to explore more of this so any entries are welcome.

What I like
I love NIN because of how varied Reznor's albums are, always exploring different sounds while making all these catchy songs, even when they're brutal. I also like Rammstein, their music is simpler but very catchy and fun, they've got their own style. But I'm curious about the more experimental, electronic side of this genre, want to delve into Coil, Throbbing Gristle, and such one day. I like industrial influences in my music.

What I don't like
I think any clones of the above bands? I know this tends to be an edgy genre, but I prefer when it doesn't go too much over the board, to the point of being ridiculous. Tunes that are just catchy and don't try anything interesting bore me.

Fav albums

Modern / Classical Music

Another little genre I haven't explored but dig what I know. Well, some of it.

What I like
Beautiful melodies, and unique takes. Although I'm kind of tired of typical orchestral music, Skyrim's soundtrack was very nice and varied. I like some old-school composers like Bach and Beethoven although I haven't really explored that part of music a lot.

What I don't like
Clint Masell and A Winged Victory for the Sullen bore me, they sound like every other generic movie soundtrack. Stars of the Lid too. I guess I don't like stuff that relies a lot on just string sections. Or that feels meandering.

Fav albums

Jazz

I really want to delve into more jazz but have been quite cautious about it, so have only explored a tiny fraction of it, it's even barely scratching the surface.

What I like
I think I tend to prefer modern stuff, mostly fused with other genres, or just unique takes on it. I really like Dark Jazz and noir vibes. I like Miles Davis' Kind of Blue too, although I tend to lose interest during the last two tracks.

What I don't like
I guess stuff that's too complex and heavily improvised so it feels "meandering".

Fav albums

Punk / Post-Hardcore / Metalcore

Another way of putting all of these together because why not :P

What I like
Definitely some sort of emotional impact, I like angry music. Stuff that just feels heavy for heaviness' sake tends to bore me unless there's some great songwriting behind it. I love stuff that mixes genres and styles, or just pushes a lot the limits of what can be done within its genre.

What I don't like
Chaotic music with no emotional impact. A lot of Mathcore could be put here. Albums that feel like the same song over and over again. For some reason some typical 2000s melodies like those used on At the Drive-In's RoC don't really appeal me.

Fav albums

World Music / Traditional Folk

I've always had a knack for this kind of stuff, so don't know why I haven't explored it more.

What I like
I love some traditional japanese music, as well as some middle East sounds, and definitely have a sweet spot for Celtic folk. Although I haven't listened to any "pure" album in this sense, I've always enjoyed it in my music, mostly contemporary stuff like Dead Can Dance and Mike Oldfield. Gazpacho usually put lots of these sounds in their music.

What I don't like
I don't really know, I guess I'd be bored with a purely traditional record/song? I definitely prefer a modern twist on the stuff I know.

OK, sign me up. I'm already in on Train of Naught's roulette. So I may as well jump in with both feet. Although, your "not in to" list makes me want to cry a little inside.... ;)

Literally  :lol That's how journalists called their music, mocking them because they would spend more time looking at the pedals than interacting with the audience.

So, music dorks with little talent or charisma, trying to distract the listener with their pedal wankery.

Submissions aren't open yet :P. But seeing there are more than 10 participants (and there's still room for more!), I'll post the rules for the elimination round:
I chose this approach because I hate elimination rounds and always wanted a quick way to assess the host's tastes in some stuff I wasn't sure about. Also my tastes can be a bit of a mess so hope this helps  :lol.

Submissions for the free round start on Friday 8th at 00:00 GMT -3, and that will be the last day to sign up for this. I'll spend the rest of the day updating the third post with some more genres to help you.

Bolsters, if you want to resubmit, you can do so once submissions are open.

Sorry, when you said you said you'd only ask us to submit on Friday I didn't realise you did not actually want people to start submitting until then. :lol

Since the first of these two rounds has no bearing on score or eliminations at all, I will definitely change my submission....on Friday.

Hell yeah  :metal

10 minutes. However, you can send only one song up to 18 mins. Applies to all rounds. Added to the OP.

ALSO

In terms of submissions, do you have Spotify premium and therefore get high-quality streaming? If so, that's probably better for me to send rather than mp3s I have, as I keep pretty much all my mp3s at 192kbps for space.

I've got Premium so yeah, would probably be better sending stuff on Spotify. But if your submission is not there, 192 kbps mp3s will be fine for roulette purposes.

I assume you could try uploading somewhere like Sendspace (don't really keep up with file uploading places but I'm sure there are tons others) and sending the URL via PM. Unless there's an upload feature here

Too late to join?  I have zero time for this, but might give it a crack.

So reading the file sending criteria, you won't accept wma or anything under 320k for mp3?
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v3. Less frustration™️, THERE'S STILL ROOM!!!
Post by: jingle.boy on December 08, 2017, 04:56:44 AM
Hell yeah, glad to see ya!  We'll both be out by Wednesday.   :lol  I'm just sending Spotify.  I've down-ripped my library to 192kb or 256kb, so won't be sending .mp3s.

Question... is your goal with this Roulette to get new music and then explore those artists, or just get some excellent music?  I ask, because I'm debating on sending a fantastic song from a (imo) mediocre artist.... or at least, I doubt the artists discography would be something that you'd enjoy as a whole, but there are a couple of tracks worth submitting.

I'd rather have 320k mp3s, but since this seems to be a bit of a problem for some, I'll change the criteria a bit. Now, anything above or including 192k is accepted.

You and me both bro.  Other than yours, King's and perhaps Kade's submissions, I'm willing to bet I won't know any.  Ever.  I mean, I honestly thought Parama was just making random shit up with that guess of The Raconteurs.  :lol

A good friend of mine is really into The Raconteurs. He made me a CD. I don't think I've ever listened to it.

It's me indeed, I figured if I have a free round and length limit of 10 minutes, I may as well send awesome prog metal song with the length of 9:58.

I'm really bad at guessing, or I just don't know most of these bands.  How about we put an E in there?

I don't know Any of these bands. Well, except maybe Phil Collins.

You and me both bro.  Other than yours, King's and perhaps Kade's submissions, I'm willing to bet I won't know any.  Ever.  I mean, I honestly thought Parama was just making random shit up with that guess of The Raconteurs.  :lol

My entry is pretty obscure but if you like prog metal—which I know you do—you may want to check my track out.

Also, props to Kade for sending Sieges Even, that's a great track.

Post by: Sacul on December 10, 2017, 10:54:59 PM
Here they are! I'm glad scores on this round don't count :lol. It seems that, the more you stay away from the generic section of a genre, the more likely I am to enjoy it :P


Lethean: Arcturus - Angst
I've heard of this group, some Ulver side project, and this seems from their last album, without Garm. Although Avant-Garde Metal, mostly blended with Black Metal, isn't my thing, I think I'll still their first albums a try. Sadly, this song doesn't really do anything to me, it feels very one-dimensional with those boring blast beats through most of the track. The chorus is ok, but kind of feels almost like a power metal one with some growls lol. 2.5/5


Kattoelox: Skyclad - Inequality Street
I think these guys might have watched Forrest Gump a bit too much :lol. Like, lyrics aren't really good and they repeat the chocolate box thing over and over. Over some actually nice, if cheesy, folk metal. I enjoy the violin work here, and the instrumentation isn't boring either. It's just too cheesy for me to take serious, and too dumb to take non-seriously I think. +2.5/5


Puppies_On_Acid: Kardashev - Between Sea and Sky
Well, this definitely is heavy and layered, but man, this isn't really my kind of thing in general - it's some kind of atmospheric deathcore I think? I like the calm sections, even if they aren't the most original, but there's a cool atmosphere here. But I'm not into the heavier sections afterwards at all. I don't have much to day, I don't feel the song has much to offer to me. +2.5/5


jingle.boy: Phil Collins - In The Air Tonight
I swear I've heard the same vocal melodies somewhere else but can't remember. Anyways, the drum machine and background guitars are nice, and Phil's voice is ok. I like how the background vocals become robotic throughout the song. I don't really care about the lyrics, he repeats the same phrases way too many times for it to become a little annoying. For some reason I kept waiting for some emotional climax, like the song was building up towards it, and it kinda gets there when the drums kick in, and he starts singing more intensely. But then it all starts to fade out and that's it. So, uhhm. It's an ok song I think? 3/5


TAC: Aeolias - Ergosphere
This is an interesting submission, I like the singer's low register. And although this has got an interesting atmosphere, and riffs are ok, somehow feels like typical prog metal with some power metal vibes, or the other way around? It's not really the kind of music I'm looking to listen to more of these days. It's a good song, but I just don't really feel attracted to this style anymore. 3/5


Luoto: Embreach - The Lake
For some reason I feel I've heard this many times before. Just feels like generic melodeath with some proggy vibes - that kind of music isn't really my thing. I like the chorus with the background vocals, and the clean sections are nice, mostly the vocal harmonies at the end, but overall I am not really into this. 3/5


Parama: Deathspell Omega - Phosphene
Of course I've heard this band being played at some plug sessions but don't remember a thing so let this pass. I think this track is interesting when it's not being boring black metal with those blast beats and growls at the same time, which is almost half the song. But I really like change of structure of the last quarter of the song, the whole atmosphere and riffing being on point.

Although I understand your comparison to Converge, Deathspell being more chaotic and heavy, I prefer the other band's music for their raw, honest emotional expression, and great riffs of course. This song just feels like some satanic worshiping (which is likely the case), and that's kind of a mentality/emotional state I can't relate at all, which may be why I don't connect with black metal at all. 3/5


Bolsters: Taylor Swift - I Wish You Would
I'll admit I went into this one a little biased but I tried my best to overcome that and try be fair. I like the electronic percussion here and the guitar sounds are nice. It's a bit of a layered song with some nice synths here and there. But I feel the chorus is repeated way too often so it ends up being not so memorable, and the amount of times she repeats the same lyrics ends up annoying me. I often find with this kind of pop music that there's more focus on vocals and lyrics with the rest of the music just serving as background. Vocal melodies weren't really interesting at all sadly. I wouldn't say it was a bad track, but it's not really something I'd like to go back - I feel I've burnt on it after just 4 listens. I guess I just would like something with a bit more depth. 3/5


Tomislav95: The Mountain Goats - This Year
After plenty of heavy songs, a nice indie folk serves as a necessary interlude. Sadly, this is just nice. Instrumentation is very one-dimensional, with very little variation throughout, and I don't really care for the lyrics, which seem the point here. Dunno, it's very simple and repetitive, there's not much relistening value to me. +3/5


twosuitsluke: Shining - House of Control
Well this is definitely different from their Blackjazz record and I think you mentioned come industrial influences. I've only heard one other track from this album before, and that had some cool sax going on. This one, uuhhhh... it's kind of weird. I don't like the guy yelling during the calm sections. Cool how the chorus progresses, in the last instance with the strings and piano buried in the mix. The last chorus is actually very nice.

I think my problem with the song is that there are not enough interesting things going on with the instrumentation beyond the chorus, and the vocals are pretty one-dimensional for a track that switches moods a few times. Sure they've got a unique sound to them but for some reason it just doesn't appeal to me, or rather, I can't connect with this. 3.5/5


Train of Naught: Long Distance Calling - Black Paper Planes
So this is kinda progressive post-rock or something? It's... cool. I mean, it's one of those songs that you like when you're listening to them, but some time later you can't recall a single note from it. Riffing is nice, drums are great, but somehow it feels like another song's instrumental version. Or just as this was part of a soundtrack or something? For some reason I feel I've heard something like this done plenty of times before but can't pinpoint exactly where. Which is frustrating because there are cool things here. 3.5/5


wolfking: Sieges Even - Stigmata
I think I can hear some strong Rush influence here, and that's usually not a good sign to me. I don't really like the abuse of those 80s guitars through most of the song (way too prominent in the mix), but I like the chemistry between the players here, mostly the drummer and bassist. The atmosphere is nice, but I don't really like the vocal melodies nor the lyrics. So the instrumental sections are definitely more interesting to me here, even if they don't blow my mind or anything. 3.5/5

home: Ab-Soul - Terrorist Threats
Among so much metal, a hip-hop song is always welcomed, even if just as a change of pace. The more I delve into hip-hop, the more I appreciate the tough work that is to get creative, addictive beats and not falling into generic tricks into production and rapping. Which this song suffers a bit from. It's got an interesting atmosphere, mostly with those cool synths and vocal harmonies. Guy has flow and it's good, but I feel all the vocals and the chorus are kinda generic in their delivery and melodies. And lyrics are kind lame - I doubt that even if all gangs got together, they wouldn't stand no chance against the military :lol. 3.5/5


Nevok: Arcadea - Rings of Saturn
I really like the synths here, very cool sound and melodies. Vocals are ok, I like how they're a little more buried in the mix and have this digital feel to them. The rest of the song felt like some ok Mastodon, which isn't a band I'm into. Decent song. 3.5/5


Elite: Agent Fresco - Bemoan
Yeah I remember you sent me another of their songs on the previous roulette and it did ok, although not enough to make me check the record. I think my issue is the lack of balance between the different sections of the songs, they just jump to each other without pause, and vocals are present the whole time, not leaving the instrumentation stand on its own or have its moment, only towards the end. It feels it would do better with a bit more of subtlety for the kind of music it was trying to make, because I quite like the piano and the melodies in general. Just feels a little rushed in general to me. 3.5/5


Evermind: Dark Empire - From Refuge to Ruin
I feel with this one the same way as with TAC's song - I am just not into this style of music. The melodies, guitar tone, artwork, even the singer's voice, I feel I've heard it all before and didn't find it interesting then, nor find it today I guess. It's just the kind of music I don't get much enjoyment from, even if it's a solid track and well-written. 3.5/5


ariich: Maribou State - Steal
Yeah I've been delving into chill electronic quite a bit this year so this was a good choice. I like the singer's voice and the overall atmosphere. Even if some of the sounds here are kinda generic for this kind of music, they're used in a very subtle, nice way and avoid becoming just another bland background music. I'm not sure if I'm into the "steal" sample, it's kind of dumb. But overall this has got a great vibe. 4/5


Stadler: The Flaming Lips - Do you even Realize??
Well, definitely didn't expect this from you so color me surprised. The chorus is pretty nice, and I like the vocal harmonies and little synths and details throughout the chorus. The vibe and instrumentation are quite nice, even if the main melody feels a little cliched somehow. Somehow I feel this is probably one of the band's most straightforward tracks and they have more interesting things in them. My only complaints are that it might be a bit too short, and lyrics are a little cheesy, but overall it was quite a nice song. 4/5


kinghmegland: The Raconteurs - The Switch And The Spur
Definitely a very interesting submission. Like you said, some pretty old music but with a modern twist - I tend to prefer those things. Use of trumpet here is very good and lovely. Although a pretty simple song, it's my favorite of the round. I like old vibes, the piano, the very cool guitar work, and the drumming is on point. I don't know, this just appeals me quite a bit, and it's fun to listen to. +4/5



You've tested the waters, now it's time for the elimination round! You have 48 hours to send from now on, and think hard or you'll get the axe :P

Wow, when the description for the 4th place entry is "I'm just not into this", it's probably not a great round. :lol

Pleased with 3rd place myself, and glad you dug it! Maribou State have only one full length, which you should check out, it's pretty varied (which is obviously hard to get across in a single song). They also have a bunch of EPs, some of which are great, some of which are a bit dull.

I've got absolutely nothing against old music (I love Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd, and I quite like some King Crimson and The Stooges among others), I just don't really connect with a lot of it, or at least the stuff I've tried.

I like the heaviness, Colors has some amazing songwriting and it's always changing and going in many interesting directions so it rarely ends up getting boring or derivative - it's an album that doesn't play it safe for the most part. It certainly took some time for me to get used to it tho.

Sometimes (read: almost always) it's really impossible to read your tastes, Saculman.
True tho :lol. That's why I tried to document extensively what I like and don't in as many genres as possible, just want less frustration for you guys, and better music for me :P

It's a fantastic song. I wanted to send it in Trains roulette, but it was over his time restraints...  :censored  :tdwn  :yeahright  :biggrin:

As my first submission was very poorly received, I had to find something more impressive. :)  Threshold is one of the first prog metal bands I fell in love with and they seem to fly under the radar.  I almost sent Light and Space again, because I think that song is really incredible and a great introduction to the band, but since I sent it to Stadler I thought I'd mix things up a little.  I don't know what you sent, as there's no Stratovarius on this list... ;)

The urge to send Strato is strong but I'd be good as dead if I sent the poor guy a note of their music  :lol Light and Space would've been a fine pick (again) too  :)

I won't say which I picked but I love the group and everything they've done so it was a tough call to make. It probably isn't a genre you'd expect me to listen to regularly.

I sent them and you said you heard that song on Guitar Hero or somewhere so I decided not to send them as you were somewhat familiar with them.

I don't know anything about his tastes, so you may well be right. I mean - I don't know experientially.  I did read the posts about what he likes and doesn't. They aren't DT clones, they aren't djent, they aren't cheesy, and they don't really mix it with thrash. Someone may disagree with my assessment, but that's what I feel. And of course, he may agree that they are none of those things and still not like the song.

I don't consider Threshold to be power metal either. I suppose it depends because I've seen what seems like every band that's melodic described as power metal at one point. I think I should just go listen to my song now and enjoy it before I get cut. :)

Title: I swear some songs are good.
Post by: Sacul on December 13, 2017, 08:07:50 PM
What is it exactly that I don't like? I'm not really sure, because the song is well-written, but for some reason I feel I've already listened to stuff like this many times already, and it's not even a style I particularly enjoy.

Feels like it drags until the vocals appear, and they aren't really good nor their melodies are.

And... I'm disappointed.

I really was looking forward to your submissions, Mr Fogey, but this one isn't doing much for me.

On the other hand, lyrics are weak, and the sung parts feel like standard progressive metal for the most part.

I feel you have better stuff you could send me..

I like the buildup and the climax of the song is pretty cool albeit a little repetitive.

It's a nice song yeah, but just that.

This is one of three entries that could be described as "crescendocore".

Dunno why I was expecting to hear growls at any moment, and I'm glad they never appeared.

It can be a little repetitive tho, and I'd have definitely enjoyed some instrumental breaks.

As usual with pop stuff, I wished there was some kind of instrumental break here and there.

It's certainly pretty fun, I like this kind of music, pretty cool as background.

Was a little underwhelmed at first but this one has grown on me, definitely more interesting than your previous submission.

I've always listened to some songs from this band here and there during plug sessions, and never got too interested in them.

I'll admit at first I was worried you'd get the axe, but this has grown on me recently.

It's a bit of an ethereal song and although it's quite crescendocore, it's got just enough unique style to appeal to me.

The structure of the song is quite simple but I don't mind when it's this enjoyable.

It's a short song, but pretty good for what it does.

Dollars to donuts that the crescendocore comment towards the end is about the Papir track.

Ha, I didn't know what crescendocore meant but I see how one of those comments might apply to Papir. Not sure that's good.

Title: RESULTS!!!!
Post by: Sacul on December 14, 2017, 10:19:16 PM
Sorry if some of these writeups aren't very detailed, with 19 entries and trying to digest everything in so little time is the best I could come up with. Sadly, I had to cut some folks, so I thank everybody for participating! First, those that unfortunate that have the axe to fall (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS6rCAGGpEI) on them.


Lethean: Threshold - Pilot in the Sky of Dreams
I think I tried another of their albums some years ago, Hypotetical, and wasn't really my thing. And this one is no exception. What is it exactly that I don't like? I'm not really sure, because the song is well-written, but for some reason I feel I've already listened to stuff like this many times already, and it's not even a style I particularly enjoy. Progressive metal like this band, Shadow Gallery, and Redemption don't really appeal to me at all these days. 3/5


jingle.boy: Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon
I found myself liking Black Sabbath quite a bit some months ago so was curious about hearing something from Ozzy. And... I'm disappointed. This feels like very standard 80s heavy metal? Maybe this was part of what influenced all that metal that came after, but it also doesn't sound any distinctive, at least not this song. It's a nice song yeah but this is not a style I was ever too fond of. 3/5


wolfking: Pendragon - The Freak Show
Although this one starts pretty cool with that riff, I quickly lose interest. Feels like it drags until the vocals appear, and they aren't really good nor their melodies are. I feel the same kind of thing about the Threshold song, it's not a bad song, but it's just not a style I'm particularly fond of nor am wanting to get more of it. 3/5


Stadler: Band of Horses - No One's Gonna Love You
I really was looking forward to your submissions, Mr Fogey, but this one isn't doing much for me. It's got nice vibes and melodies, but just feels generic Indie Rock to me, and that's not something I'm huge on. Also lyrics are bland, and they seem quite the focus here so it doesn't help either. Not bad at all, but not really something I enjoy much. 3/5


twosuitsluke: John Frusciante - A Song to Sing When I'm Lonely
Frusciante has always seemed like the most interesting member of RHCP, playing for The Mars Volta, and having written albums in many styles and genres. This one has slowly been growing on me. Despite the cool synths at the beginning, feels a bit like a standard singer-songwriter track tho, which is weird considering the album is tagged as Experimental Rock in a few places so maybe it's just this song. It's a nice song yeah, but just that, not one I find extremely memorable. +3/5


TAC: Sleeping In Traffic - Not Your Fault
This one's kind of conflicting to me - on the one hand there's lots of very cool guitar work here, mostly in that amazing break in the middle. On the other hand, lyrics are weak, and the sung parts feel like standard progressive metal for the most part. It's just not something I really see myself wanting to listen to more of. 3.5/5


Puppies_On_Acid: Soen - Orison
I've always listened to some songs from this band here and there during plug sessions, and never got too interested in them. Maybe cuz they felt like Tool 2: Electric Boogaloo or something. But seems that on this track, although the Opeth/Tool/Katatonia influences are still there, definitely has more personality than what I've previously heard from them. Cool riffs, but a bit too long tho, kinda drags for a while. Doesn't blow me away but it's enjoyable. 3.5/5



Now, I couldn't bring myself to just picking 10 because I know there would be lots of very cool stuff some of you guys could send me and I'd be missing on, but also knew some would end up just frustrated by the small intersection between our tastes. Thus, I'm gonna pick 12, as I am confident I can handle it well, and I hope we can all have a nice time together. So, props to everybody that got through!


home: mewithoutyou - Rainbow Signs
I don't know why I feel I would enjoy this track a lot more if I was already familiar with the band and this album. I like the buildup and the climax of the song is pretty cool albeit a little repetitive and drags a bit. Dunno, I like this song, but doesn't have the emotional impact I was expecting. 3.5/5


Tomislav95: The Sword - Maiden, Mother & Crone
I don't know man, I like stoner stuff like this, and although it's pretty cool and quite :metal, it feels just like heavier early Black Sabbath, with no much new stuff in the mix to make their style more unique. I feel you have better stuff you could send me. 3.5/5


Train of Naught: God is an Astronaut - Helios Erebus
This is one of three entries that could be described as "crescendocore". I think somebody sent me a song from "All Is Violent, All Is Bright" in the previous roulette and it did just ok. I like the first buildup, but the middle section with the piano is just wonderful. Second buildup is quite good too. But, the only things going on on this song are the buildups and just that. It's kinda one-dimensional and although I really like it when listening to it, I have a hard time remembering it afterwards. It's not completely generic, but it's not very creative either. 3.5/5


kingshmegland: Slow Motion Reign - Life Simulator
This is a bit of an odd one, it's kind of proggy but also atmospheric? I like the piano melodies. It's one that's definitely been growing on me, there are many things buried in the mix. It can be a little repetitive in structure and melodies tho, and I'd have definitely enjoyed some instrumental breaks - it just feels so busy and I prefer some little pauses from time to time. +3.5/5


Nekov: Papir - IIII.II
I really like the guitar tone, it reminds me of GYBE!'s first two albums. Somehow it's an hypnotic track and doesn't feel too long for a 9-min track. I think it's because it's more of a psychedelic rock song than a post-rock one, having some improvisational feel to it. Guitar work here is pretty good and engaging, kinda reminds me of My Brother the Wind. It reaches a nice climax but just doesn't stop there, I like how it slowly calms down. It's a bit of an ethereal song and although it's quite crescendocore, it's got just enough unique style to appeal to me. 4/5


Evermind: Easily Embarrassed - Little Trees and Mysteries
Didn't expect you liking this sort of music, but stranger things have been seen. I like the intro, very cool synth work. Then it kicks in and becomes more interesting with the dub and the glitches and stuff. Kinda reminds me of Shpongle and Hinkstep (check Tales of the Inexpressible and and Sunrise From the Treetops respectively if you like this kind of music). It's certainly pretty fun, I like this kind of music, pretty cool as background. 4/5


Luoto: Eastern High - Afterglow
I like how this song evolves and builds up, reaching a cool guitar solo. Dunno why I was expecting to hear growls at any moment, and I'm glad they never appeared. I really like the use of vocal harmonies throughout this track and the, uh, Nordic vibes I think? Took some time to grow on me, but enough to save you. 4/5


Parama: Georgia - Move Systems
This song is definitely very weird, and took time to grow on me. It's got this industrial vibe throughout it and although I could see others hating on it, I'm enjoying it. Melodies are pretty unusual yet quite catchy. I like the synths quite a bit. As usual with pop stuff, I wished there was some kind of instrumental break here and there, because it can get repetitive otherwise. But yeah I like these sounds, risky choice but ended up well. 4/5


Elite: Ninet - Paper Parachute
Oh boy, Steven Wilson must have had a heart attack when listening to this album or song at least - it's extremely compressed! Which is a real shame since the production is great and music is pretty cool. Although not groundbreaking at all, it's some very intense alternative rock, and Ninet's brilliant performance sells it. It's a short song, but pretty good for what it does. 4/5


Kattoelox: Incognito - Jacaranda
Yeah this is definitely better than your previous submission. I've been delving into Snarky Puppy a lot lately and this reminds me of them and appeals to me. Has a very nice chill atmosphere without ending up feeling like boring Smooth Jazz, just nice compositions and playing. The structure of the song is quite simple but I don't mind when it's this enjoyable. 4/5


ariich: Petter Carlsen - Spirits in Need
I'll admit at first I was worried you'd get the axe, but this has grown on me recently. Style kinda reminds me of Anathema and dredg to an extent and it's very nice and atmospheric. Got a great climax. Kinda wished there were more instrumental breaks in general but it's very enjoyable nevertheless. 4/5


Bolsters: Lykke Li - Heart of Steel
Was a little underwhelmed at first but this one has grown on me, definitely more interesting than your previous submission. Lovely atmosphere and instrumentation (mostly the piano), I like all these catchy melodies and the harmonies. Kinda wished it had some instrumental breaks from time to time tho. +4/5

You should check that album out, I think that one is like the 3rd best track out of the 4, but since the others were longer than 10 minutes I couldn't send them. It's a pretty solid album.

As well as the other guys, I have nothing prepared so I'll spend some time looking at you RYM and seeing if there is something in my library you haven't listened to yet.

Looking at the bands that got through, considering I've never even heard of any of those band names (except The Sword, which I still haven't heard anything from)  the three of us simply didn't stand a chance in this.

Join you?  First round's on me.

It's fun sending bands I would've never sent in anyone else's roulette.

Same. I'm deliberately sending picks from genres I'm only kind of familiar with (but enough to know what I like and don't like). Trying to avoid prog-power metal as much as possible and pick other favorites that Sacul also might enjoy is a fun challenge :)

I'm having a similar approach, no prog or power metal, no standard prog, just going with little known bands that do something else.

^^ Funny thing is there are picks I want to send that are actually REALLY popular but I don't see a shred of evidence on RYM or last.fm that he's listened to them. So that's kind of cool.  :biggrin: There's also some DT-related stuff I don't see but that might be dangerous to send :)

Also, we could all agree to send Power/Prog/Black metal for a couple of rounds just to bother him  :P

Better yet, we can all send power metal every round now, as there's no more elimination. :biggrin:

Glad you liked the Petter Carlsen, Sacul, I know what you mean about the initial listen(s) - the earlier part of the song is nice but that's kind of it, but once you know the song and how it builds up towards the end it's great.

And sent!

Well, was hoping to provide more thorough writeups like Parama's now that there are less players and have given everything many listens, but I feel I'm far from that for most of these. Some feedback and recommendations are definitely appreciated. Also please notice that, between songs that have the same score, they aren't ranked at all now that it doesn't matter.


(https://i.imgur.com/eCet2un.png)


Bolsters: Tove Lo - Hey You Got Drugs?
This is pretty much the kind of radio pop I'm not fond of. Not because it's just on the radio (I'm not such hipster), but it just lacks much personality - I feel I've heard these kind of melodies and synths and even similar voices over and over in TV, ads, lame trailers, etc. Maybe it was just her music being played all the time, but it's not a sound I am fond of at all at this point. It's a bit more well-written than I was expecting tbh. Lyrics are stupid tho, I don't like songs about drugs like these. It's also pretty repetitive in structure. Dunno, it's not bad, but not something I really want to come back to. 3/5


Nekov: Vasudeva - Thought Pool
This is kind of a uuhhh proggy post-rock thing? It's kind of hard to talk about it, for I enjoy it when I'm listening to it, there are good vibes here and atmosphere is cool, but feels just like an interlude between more interesting sections (it sounds like the intro to the next song), or as background music to some emotional film or something. I think it's just lacking substance and I have a hard time remembering how this sounded even after 5 listens. 3/5


Train of Naught: Blonde Redhead - Misery is a Butterfly
I am not really sure what this song is about, it basically repeats the same rhythms and melodies throughout all its duration - it's quite one-dimensional. Sure it adds and subtracts some things here and there to keep it dynamic, but when I'm not really enjoying the base it becomes a little annoying and boring.

Also, I don't really like the singer's voice here - feels unnaturally high pitched, and her delivery just feels somewhat dumb to me, forced.

It's not a bad song, I'd even say it's enjoyable... as background music. I don't have much to say, but that's because there's not much to this track imo. +3/5


Kattoelox: Levin Minnemann Rudess - Lakeshore Lights
I vaguely recall listening to this album way back when it was released but I don't remember a single note from it. And I guess I can hear why.

It feels it tried the same approach as the LTE albums (half the lineup is here after all!), but ends up being a poor man's version of those fantastic two albums. The songs have many sections that just have really nothing to do with each other and the flow isn't very good either. Individually they're cool but the whole is kind of a mess.

On the bright side, they've got quite a bit of chemistry and their playing is top notch. And I really like Rudess' synths here, they've got a great sound.

All in all, it's still more interesting than what DT have been doing lately. 3.5/5


Luoto: Chaos Divine - Landmines
I can hear quite some Devin Townsend influence here, which is always nice, mostly with the layered guitars. For some reason this sounds too much like modern progressive metal and can hear many of its influences. And while it wouldn't be a problem if I really liked that particular sound, it is one here. I hate this is one of those instances in which I find myself having a hard time explaining what is about this song that doesn't work for me, because it's not really bad at all, but I guess I'll try. I don't like the singer's voice and his melodies are kind of boring, guitar's tone and playing feels quite generic besides the layered style, synths are ok but feel too buried in the mix. Production is quite bad, compressed and instruments are barely noticeable. I like the structure of the song tho, leaving some nice instrumental bits and not repeating itself exactly each time a section is played again. For some reason, after 5 listens, I can barely remember some of its melodies. 3.5/5


Evermind: Delerium - Silence
I think I may have sampled this album some months ago, just checking bits here and there but not whole songs. Until now!

For some reason this makes me think of a religious or New Age version of The Gathering's Souvenirs - the singer strikes me as having a similar style. Although she may be overdoing it a little bit at times, I have to compliment her passionate, strong delivery during the chorus, which has some pretty cool melodies.

In terms of sound, this definitely feels a little dated, with those synths, electronic piano, and the gregorian chants. Plus the simple sampled beats. But it's also a sound I enjoy (not love) so it doesn't hurt too much. In a way it also reminds me of that other electronic song you sent me in the previous roulette, and in both cases, these are surprisingly well-written tracks and don't make me cringe - I just have encountered awful religious/spiritual music. Sure it has a pretty basic, simple structure, but it works ok.

All in all, it's a solid track that feels a little dated and it's certainly enjoyable a listen, but, after 5 listens, I feel it doesn't have much replay value. Like I've heard everything it had to offer and don't feel compelled to go back to it. +3.5/5


home: NF - How Could You Leave Us
This was definitely a bit of a tough song to listen to and write about, because of the raw emotional delivery and intimate topic. On the one hand, the melodies are simple and moving, the atmosphere is moving, and lyrics are crushing. On the other hand, the piano melodies become pretty repetitive since they don't vary at all. And the little sounds of the guy sobbing were a bit too much, as well as him crying near the end of the track. I mean that, personally, I don't like to hear people outright crying in my music - when they're close to it and delivering some raw, powerful vocals, yeah, but not lamented crying. So yeah, it's a difficult listen, but probably goes a bit more than it should to express the emotions it is about. +3.5/5


tomislav95: Daughter - Medicine
This song is rather simple, but effective. I like the subtle piano, the vocal harmonies, and the soft electronic beat, it all helps create a lovely atmosphere. The singer's got a nice voice too. My only complaint would be that the climax doesn't feel too cathartic, and the song could have been a little longer. Wasn't very impressed at first but it managed to grow a bit on me, not enough to love it, just to be a pretty pleasant and emotional listen. 4/5


Elite: Oh Wonder - Technicolour Beat
Well I definitely didn't expect something like this from you so it's a nice surprise. For some reason I feel I've already listened to the the main sample on this song somewhere else. It's a short electropop song, I like the beats and the claps as part of the percussion. The male/female vocal duo works well, even if the girl has definitely more presence. There's some cool piano in the background, I like it. Although it's pretty standard in terms of structure, I like how the last chorus is a little different with those cool synths, giving it a different feel. Although it reminds me of other modern artists, it's got cool enough melodies and vibes for me. 4/5


Parama: White Ward - Deviant Shapes
This song starts pretty interesting with those spoken word samples, the slow riffing, and the electronics. Then it breaks and becomes heavy (yay), just to fall into blast beats and growls (meh). But I'm glad that part is fairly short and some lovely sax appears then some nice riffing. It all goes pretty cool and nice until more black metal appears. With time I'm more sure that shrieks/growls + blast beats is definitely something I won't ever be really fond of, so it shows when those are by far my least fav sections of the songs you've submitted so far (except Georgia).  So yeah, dunno if the rest of the album leans more towards the more atmospheric and electronic parts of this song, but this track was solid overall. 4/5


kingshmegland: Echolyn - Past Gravity
I'm not even sure I've heard of these guys before, but am glad you sent them. They play that particular style of prog that's more focused on melody, arrangements, and subtlety than complexity.

This is is curious, because many of the particular sounds, like the synths and keys, sound quite retro, yet the songwriting is very modern. I like how organic everything sounds and each instruments are clearly separated from each other. Singer may sound a bit like typical for this genre, but he delivers a convincing performance. There are also some strings on the background providing textures for the whole thing, and I'm glad they aren't more prominent.

The overall structure is interesting, with sections changing slightly when they're reprised. The buildup to the climax is pretty cool, and I enjoy the aftermath with those soft samples and the post-rock-ish guitars. Overall the amount of piano is quite satisfying by the way.

Although it doesn't hit me as strong as it does to you king, it was a very solid track and I'm looking forward to listening to the whole thing. +4/5


ariich: The Reign of Kindo - Let It Go
I recall listening to one song from these guys in Plug and wasn't too keen on that particular track. But I am on this!

This has got a peculiar chill vibe, and it mixes progressive rock melodies that remind me of The Dear Hunter, with some jazzy vibes, without ever going into unnecessarily intricate playing. RYM tags this album as Jazz-Rock and Indie Rock, which seems fitting.

I definitely enjoy the simplicity of the song paired with the lovely mood it achieves - the intro reminded me of Nujabes for some reason. The piano and the trumpet are the highlight to me here, I just love the melodies they play and how they fit the overall vibe. Guitar's pretty cool as well and has got an interesting tone to it. I'm also glad there are a few instrumental bits, these guys feel they're just having a good time together. I like how the instrumentation on the last chorus is different, with the trumpet complementing the other melodies, and following on it until the end.

Definitely the biggest grower of the roulette to me, and one that I didn't mind putting on repeat while writing this. 4.5/5

Honestly that's about what I expected you to say about that track. I was hoping that you hadn't heard it already, although I assumed you may have. I tried to pick the one that was most straightforward without typical heavy guitars, and the one with the most memorable motif - love the synth lead sound in that one too. Glad you enjoyed it, somewhat ;)

Glad you liked it so much, I agree with Train of Naught that you'll probably dig that album quite a bit. Their third LP "Play With Fire" is also excellent, leans slightly more towards the jazzy but still not in an overly-intricate way.

Title: RESULTS
Post by: Sacul on January 04, 2018, 07:11:20 PM
Sorry for the delay folks, fell ill and real life stuff slowed me down, plus yesterday I realized I hadn't listened to what Trainy and Luoto had sent me, but here they are, results! (Also went back and fixed the total scores, seems I fucked up on previous round).

(https://i.imgur.com/8yq4s3m.png)

Luoto: Amendfoil - Blackleg
I don't know, I guess it's solid progressive metal with a pretty heavy sound, sometimes reminding me of Strapping Young Lad and maybe Mastodon? It's an ok song for the most part. The chorus is nice, although it feels a like it belong to a power metal song. I just feel I've heard this style done a lot of times before, and I am not really looking forward to anything similar as I'm not a big fan of it. 3/5


Parama: The Receiving End of Sirens - The Salesman, The Husband, The Lover
So this is the band the guy from TDH was in before TDH? Nice. For some reason it kinda reminds me of Brand New in some melodies. It feels it's one of those songs that although I could point out how strong the songwriting is, it doesn't resonate much with me - post-hardcore stuff is very hit and miss with me, mostly the latter. I don't find any of the melodies engaging, and I don't care about the vocals at all. So it's just ok to me. 3/5


Kattoelox: Silversun Pickups - Growing Old Is Getting Old
I'm not a fan of the guy's voice, so I'm glad it's kind of processed and muddy, not too upfront in the mix. This track has a nice atmosphere, and there's a cool build-up, yeah, but... I don't really find any of this particularly creative - I feel I've heard this approach many times before, and done better. And the band doesn't have a very strong personality either. Yeah I know, I'm very picky with my atmospheric music :lol . I just love it and have explored a lot of it, but there's still more to discover, so I'm open to that. 3.5/5


home: La Dispute - King Park
My biggest grip with this track is not the singer's voice in particular, but his performance, feeling very one-dimensional - he's probably emotionally touched by the story he's singing, but dude, it gets really annoying when he sounds almost the same through most of the song, and he has a big presence on this song. So I think this would have benefited from cutting some vocals lines and trimming on the lyrics a bit. The instrumentation is pretty solid, and the climax of the song is great, but by that point, his vocals don't leave as much impact as they should have. 3.5/5


kingshmegland: Frost* - Dear Dead Days
This is definitely more interesting than the other Frost* tracks I received in previous roulettes. Somehow it reminds me of Haken (circa Aquarius) in some of the vocal melodies, mostly the chorus. I really like those synths, the sound is just wonderful. The guitars are great, although sometimes they can be a little cheesy. But overall, I'm still not sold on this for some reason, vocals feel overwhelming when they're present. +3.5/5


Bolsters: HAIM - Falling
In a way I am reminded of the Taylor Swift track you send before, but with more personality and better structure. It's catchy and has a pretty nice vibe. And I don't know, maybe it feels a little too sugar-ish to me, or it's quite busy, the instrumentation rarely having a spot for itself. Vocals are interesting, I'll give it that. Yet I don't have much to say, it's an enjoyable pop song, kind of a summer one, but just that. I got a little tired of it after many listens. +3.5/5


Tomislav95: Okkervil River - For Real
I'll admit this song has grown quite a bit on me - I was really not into it for most listens. It kinda reminds me of Brand New a bit on the melodies. I'm not big on the singer tho, dunno if it's his voice or the delivery, trying to sound miserable. Instrumentation has these lovely guitars and nice vibe overall. Felt a bit like typical Indie Rock but I've come to really feel these guys got a bit of a particular sound and the songwriting is strong, particularly the chorus. 4/5


Elite: Loreena McKennitt - Kecharitomene
Although it feels more as the soundtrack to some great Celtic setting, maybe a movie, it's a great piece. Calm, with some great intense moments, mostly the climax of it. I really like Celtic Folk so this was a smart choice. 4/5


Train of Naught: Ivar Bjornsson & Einar Selvik's Skuggsja - Skuggsja
I like the intro, and all of the Nordic Folk melodies and instruments here. I like the many vocal harmonies leading to this great buildup. It's grandiose and epic, I like it quite a bit. Sorry for the short writeup, haven't had much time to deeply think about this track, but know it was great. 4/5


Evermind: The Wishing Tree - Falling
Well this is definitely different from the little Marillion I've listened to. At first I wasn't too interested on this track, felt a bit cheesy and kinda like a standard ballad, but it has grown on me. There are many cool ideas, like the subtle electronics, the guitar solo, the breakdowns, etc. It's a pretty chill, nice track, and been digging calmer stuff as of late so this is a good direction. 4/5


Nekov: AU4 - Everyone is everyone (and Everything is everything)
On the first listens, this seemed like the strongest song of the round. I like the beginning, it's a little weird with the fast distant vocals and the soft strings. Around the second minute, the electronic beats kick in and the singer tries a softer approach, kinda reminding me of Massive Attack's 100th Window - not complaining, it's a great album. Then, the electric guitars kick in and I'm really enjoying it, I like that digital sound. Vocals are interesting, sung in a style reminiscing of nu metal, but somehow they work. The trumpet definitely adds to the atmosphere. After the climax, there's this very cool section that recalls the beginning of the song but feels a bit different now, and has some great synths. 4.5/5


ariich: Bizali - Lucile
From the first listen I knew this would be up my alley - lots of funky melodies, vocals so full of energy, strong instrumentation, etc. I don't have much to say, this is just quite a bit of fun to listen to and feels fresh and with personality. It's a shame they're so obscure, because this track was great. 4.5/5

Positions
ariich 13
Elite 12
kingshmegland +11.5
Evermind +11.5
Nekov 11.5
tomislav95 11.5
Parama 11
Katteolox 11
Bolsters 11
Train of Naught +10.5
home +10.5
Luoto 10.5


Solid round, fellas, strongest one so far, and it's still anyone's game - ariich's luck may not last forever. You've got 48 hours to send from now on, looking forward to your entries.

By the way, would you guys be interested in a short playlist of songs I've been digging lately? Just as a guide of where my tastes currently are :P

Title: RESULTS!!!!
Post by: Sacul on January 13, 2018, 07:12:59 PM
I think there might be a correlation between a song's and my writeup's length :P


Kattoelox: Eminem - Offended
I don't really care much about political lyrics, and this seems to be partly a diss to Trump and to those that he offended throughout his career - ironically he uses a kid's melody for the chorus that ends up just being childish and bland. The beats are ok, and he's got a great flow, but that's about it for this song. 3/5


home: EDEN - drugs
I don't know much modern R&B - I like Frank Ocean's Channel ORANGE, it's a pretty varied and creative album, and this song seems to be in that vein, kinda. Sadly it's a style of music that I'm not that big on, and it being overplayed everywhere isn't helping either. So, the song feels a little like standard modern radio stuff, with some cool guitars and samples to make it a bit more original. In terms or structure, is pretty basic and kinda repetitive. I don't know, it feels the kind of music people put as background of sports videos or ads, I don't feel very compelled to listen to it on its own. 3/5


Nekov: Apparat - Candil de la Calle
This is very electronic, moody track - seems fitting as a soundtrack as you mentioned. I like the synths, they have a lovely sound and the electronics are on point. However, this feels pretty repetitive, and not in a good way - it feels like one long section instead of having several, the melodies are all very similar, and the instrumentation doesn't really vary much, just makes some breaks. I'd also wish there were some instrumental sections - vocals just aren't in balance with the rest of the music. 3.5/5


Luoto: Oddland - Still the Spirit Stays
So, progressive metal? Uuuhhhh ok I guess. It's got some solid melodies but it doesn't really feel any different to all the progressive metal out there - sure the break at 3:20 is cool and the solo is nice, and the structure is interesting, but this is a genre which I've gotten pretty tired of lately and don't even like that much - I'd be all over this if I did I'm sure. Maybe I'd have liked the song with sax more, I love that instrument. 3.5/5


ariich: Plini - Selenium Forest
Time for bedroomcore! I've only listened to Plini through some plug,dj sessions and some features on other albums and never really minded him much - as a friend described him, "twinkly twinkly guitar thingy", and that seemed appropriate. This song, however, is a little different - it has multiple sections, and goes through several moods. There's a part around min 3 that really reminds me of DMM, but for the rest of the song their styles differ a lot. There's quite a presence of guitar on this track, mostly on the right channel, that becomes a little annoying as it is fairly prominent on the mix and gets a tad repetitive. The mood is fairly nice, but sometimes it doesn't know if it wants to be dreamy and chill or somehow heavy - both don't really feel chill or really heavy, likely just bad mastering. So... it's ok I guess? I'm not really sold on this guy's style yet. 3.5/5


Evermind: The Mayan Factor - Focus Reborn
I swear I thought I had accidentally put a Porcupine Tree song instead of this one at first - the guitars and vocal melodies really feel like something from Stupid Dream or Deadwing. Anyways, to the song: I don't mind the rap at all, it doesn't really fit or maybe it's just the vocalist doesn't rap too well, but they don't detract at all. The first 3 minutes are like a pretty ballad, then a very cool instrumental section building up slowly to the chorus again. I like how the vocalist puts a bit more energy this time, giving the song a sense of progression. Around 6:30 there's the climax of the first half of the song, with the singer giving a great performance.

Then, a minute of silence :lol. I haven't figured out if the second half is a bonus track or part of the song - RYM days the former, discogs the latter, so who knows. Anyways, after that, it begins in an Anathema-ish way with the guitars and the vocals. Then it builds up again and it's cool, with less Porcupine Tree influence, but the chorus on this half doesn't feel as interesting as the first one nor the ending is as climatic.

So overall is a song that doesn't depart too much from its influences, and ironically when it does, the result isn't as interesting. I don't mind the rap on this track but I also feel it's unnecessary, as the vocalist doens't have a very good flow, and there's not enough groove to support it, so it ends up feeling a bit out of place in this kind of music. Nothing that detracts from the music, it just doesn't add anything to it. 3.5/5


Elite: Ibrahim Maalouf - Essentielles
Very curious song - pretty straightforward jazz-fusion with a rock attitude but some moments for a little of improvisation. It's short and simple but with lots of energy, I love the main motif here. The synths on the background are very cool as well. There isn't much to say, I like what I hear - it's not groundbreaking but it's far from bland and dull. Seems this album mixes a bit of arabic music so I'm looking forward to it. 4/5


Bolsters: Sia - Breathe Me
Although it starts like a typical ballad, it slowly evolves into something dense with a marimba, strings, electronics, guitars, and pianos. The vocal melodies are ok, so I'm glad the last third of the track is purely instrumental - it just works better that way. The climax is pretty nice. I think I may have heard some of her newer songs here and there and didn't like them much so this is a pleasant surprise. 4/5


Train of Naught: Tame Impala - Let It Happen
Yeah I can definitely hear the similarities with The Beatles but this is a very modern, almost electronic song. It's a little repetitive during the first half, so the extended instrumental bit was interesting, then going back to the main motif. It feels like a less experimental but far more enjoyable Animal Collective. I like the song's structure and how it just takes its time for each section, not rushing it. The atmosphere is very trippy and I like it. The inclusion of guitars on the second half definitely improves the whole thing. Took some time to grow on me but I'm enjoying it quite a bit now, just wished it had a better ending. 4/5


Tomislav95: Andrew Bird - Fake Palindromes
Very short song, but an effective one - I love the break with the drums and the strings. Melodies feel a bit like standard Indie Folk but somehow really work here so I don't mind. There's not much to say, I like this quite a bit, and from what I gather, seems one of the most standard songs on this record. 4/5


kingshmegland: Sarah McLachlan - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (Live)
I've got to say this is a song that starts a little weak, but it slowly gets better and better, with the chorus being when I'm really starting to feel it. She's got a powerful voice and definitely puts on a lot of passion here. I like the first guitar solo, but the second one, holy shit, it's so damn intense and crazy! This is a pretty solid performance, and my only critique is that the calmer sections aren't very interesting - her voice doesn't really suit them either. Great song. +4/5


Parama: Sigh - Voices
This was uuhhhh... pretty weird to say the least :lol. It's like you put some chill beats with psychedelic synths and sampled vocals, a lonely piano, strings and a choir, and growls - feels like a twisted Tim Burton at times. And for the most part, it works! I'm not a big fan of their album In Somniphobia so this was a pleasant surprise - I was aware this album was pretty weird and experimental, but not in a way I'd find enjoyable, at least on this song (which seems it's a bonus track, huh). The guitar and piano solos are very nice and somehow fit this thing. I think I'm just not big on the growls, but they aren't very prominent and the rest of the music is pretty cool so whatever. +4/5

I sent what I was digging at the moment but I was totally aware that might be your reaction. To be fair Eminem and Kendrick are the only rap artists I can say I love, and there are only a few others I can actually say I'm a fam of. The album is... well, there are some really good songs on it, I'd still recommends it.

I have ideas more in line with something I sent earlier for the next round. Reading the writeups is useful.

Cool, in my opinion Let It Happen is definitely their milestone though, Currents (the album) didn't quite live up to it for me. But there are some other really good songs on it and the album cover is cool as fuck so I suggest you give it a try anyway.

I might actually send some rap next, there's one rapper I've been getting into a lot last year and I think the saculman might like it too. Will decide later today.

Question!

Quote from: Sacul
Up to two entries per artist in the same round. More than that, I'll only take into account the first two songs submitted. If it's a re-entry, I'll only accept the first track I receive.

Is that like, 2 entries per artist from all the participants, or can one person send 2 songs? :)

I wasn't included in the conspiracy PM :emo:

I did hear about it but not that it was exclusively power metal, I just thought something with a cheese factor in general. So I sent alternative metal / metalcore

As for the hangman being easier, we still didn't know which songs. I also anticipated some other bands than what were actually sent based on the messaging.

Post by: ariich on January 17, 2018, 06:33:21 AM
The original suggestion was prog-, power- and death-metal, so there should be a decent mix.

Basically, this felt like a good way to try and introduce Sacul to some good music (some of which he might even dig) in genres he's not normally keen on, without the risk of being the only person to do so in any given round. We agreed to keep it secret just for a bit of fun, but though it might have been hilarious to send the cheesiest, over-the-top power metal we could (I considered sending a 19-minute Rhapsody song :P ), we also agreed that would ultimately just be rubbish for Sacul if he hates that stuff. :lol

We have one chance to send a song over 10 minutes in the entire roulette. It would be quite funny indeed if all of those songs are in the same round :lol

Post by: Evermind on January 17, 2018, 11:07:01 AM
I've already used my long song though!

I sent some great prog metal (as the theme was indeed power, prog and death) which I love, but I'm sure Sacul is going to hate it. :lol Especially the lyrics and the chorus.
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v3. Less frustration™️, HENGAMENEANG!!!!!
Post by: Sacul on January 17, 2018, 11:21:55 AM

Nope, and somebody already sent them in previous rounds :P

The original suggestion was prog-, power- and death-metal, so there should be a decent mix.
Well seems everybody but one player ended up sending from those genres in some way :lol. Sent him a PM in case he wants to change his song to fit the round, lucky I haven't started listening yet.

Basically, this felt like a good way to try and introduce Sacul to some good music (some of which he might even dig) in genres he's not normally keen on, without the risk of being the only person to do so in any given round.
Thing is, two roulettes and hundreds of plug sessions of all kinds have pretty much convinced me these genres aren't my cuppa tea, but I appreciate you trying, should be fun :D massive 2/5 incoming

We have one chance to send a song over 10 minutes in the entire roulette. It would be quite funny indeed if all of those songs are in the same round :lol
Feel free to bring it on :lol

I assume the delay is because you now love power metal and death metal and can't stop listening.

Title: OH HI MARK
Post by: Sacul on January 20, 2018, 11:06:29 PM
Kattoelox: Aquaria - Expedition
Gosh I hate those synths at the beginning, a lot - they seem out of a cheap early 2000s game. Riffing is ok, drumming is very predictable and boring, I'm not really a fan of whatever those background vocals are at 1:40, and UGH that break at 2:50 or so. I normally don't give a crap about power metal, but this actually made me have some negative feelings towards it :lol. I ended up skipping it while finishing this, sorry fam. +2/5


Evermind: Seventh Wonder - Alley Cat
I remember the other song you sent me in the previous roulette - it was so goddamn cheesy so this made me scared :lol. To begin with, there's a noticeable lower ranking in the Cheese O' Mater so that's nice. On the other hand, I realized I had actually listened to this album many years ago but couldn't even finish it, and this track reminds me why - it's just run-of-the-mill prog metal, reminding me of Threshold, Shadow Gallery, Redemption, and of DT's less stellar moments, mostly during the instrumental break. I'm really tired of this sound and I was never fully into it, and this doesn't change my opinion. 2.5/5


kingshmegland: Pagan's Mind - Though Osiris' Eyes
I think the most creative thing of this song is the spare use of vocal effects. The rest is just boring progressive power metal with bland shredding and lame synths. Guitar work is just ok. Overall I wouldn't say it's completely derivative, but it's just part of an aesthetic and sound I've never enjoyed and this round confirms I never will :lol. 2.5/5


Luoto: Insomnium - Revelation
Well, after much cheese overload, time for growl overload, predictable riffing, bland and monotonous drumming, pointless synths, typical reverb and layering, and forgettable melodies. Yet in a way this is the lesser of two devils, somehow :P. +2.5/5


ariich: Amorphis - Dark Path
I've heard some Amorphis tunes in plug, and wasn't really impressed, nor I am now. It's... just nothing really special, just a straightforward song that switches between boring death metal and ok prog metal. It's... kind of there, you know. Sure it's got a decent guitar work and the vocalist is good, but things is, death and prog metal always detract for me, so unless it's a very creative twist on the genre, with a strong personality, it will likely just never get extra points from me. So this was just ok. +2.5/5


Nekov: Angra - Wishing Well
Ugh I have tried some random songs form this album, and gave Holy Land a listen, and weren't my thing at all. The acoustic guitar motif of this song must be an Ayreon ripoff or something, I swear it reminds me of a song from THE. The chorus is ok, kinda trying to be emotional but it's just cheesy. Rest of the song just forgettable. +2.5/5


Train of Naught: Trivium - The Sin and the Sentence
A friend once gifted me a Trivium CD (Ascendancy) thinking I'd dig it, and it was quite meh. But I heard good things of their last album so was curious about this entry.

And uuhhh it was ok I guess? It's Melodic Metalcore according to RYM and that seems fitting, but there's also quite some Heavy and Thrash Metal influence here. It's got a pretty normal song structure except for the last bit of the song, with some intense but rather dull drumming, clean / harsh vocals duo, and ok riffing. I really don't like this kind of drumming really, it's so unimaginative, lacks dynamics, it's just a guy playing fast and gets tiresome. And despite being fairly melodic, I found the melodies bland and forgettable. It's not really bad, just kind of boring tbh. +2.5/5


Tomislav95: Iced Earth - A Question of Heaven
I used to jam Something Wicked This Way Comes quite a bit some years ago - was a good tune, but didn't get me interested in checking the band further. So, curious me was interested in this track. And yeah, I'll say it's a fairly standard metal fair :lol. It's solid I guess, but I just can't stand the lame use of 80s guitar sounds a lot of metal tries to pass for adequate for calm sections - it doesn't calm anybody down when you're playing at the same tempo and volume as before. After that it slowly starts building up, sorta. I feel the vocalist gets to an emotional climax the rest of the instruments haven't noticed, for they play exactly the same for the most part towards the end. So yeah, just another metal track. 3/5


Elite: Caligula's Horse - A Gift to Afterthought
I've listened to Moments From Ephemeral City back when I got a song from it on my first roulette and it was an ok effort I think. I've then proceeded to encounter many songs from their catalogue in diverse plug sessions, and they didn't make a strong impression on me.

And neither does this song. Yeah these guys got a nice sound, and there are some cool ideas, like the massive backing vocals near the end of the song, and the elaborate songwriting. But beyond that, it feels pretty much like standard modern progressive metal, with a little djent influence on the riffs.

While I'd have loved this track had I been a huge fan of the style here, truth is that I've never been too big on it, and these days it mostly detracts from the experience to me. The last interesting prog metal I heard was Indukti's Idmen, and even that didn't blow my mind despite having a unique sound - I'm just done with this kind of music I guess. 3/5


home: Blind GuardianThe Bard's Song - In the Forest
Well this was actually somehow decent - expected way more cheese, but this is just a normal ballad like one a Bard would sing I guess. The vocal harmonies were a nice touch. And that's pretty much what I have to say, it's a short track, doesn't do much, but doesn't annoy at all. You could even say there was a degree of enjoyment here. +3/5


Bolsters, the Traitor: Amy Shark - Deleted
Well, something refreshing at least! Relatively I guess. On the one hand I like the production, electronic, with lots of room to breathe, and synths are nice. On the other, the melodies feel much like typical indie pop these days, so it really takes away from her, but I hope she can develop a more unique and personal style one day. +3/5


Parama: The Hirsch Effekt - Irrath
This was a pretty weird tune, being mostly just bass, drums, and vocals for the beginning of the song, slowly starting to build up around the middle, with the guitar playing with more intensity. Here things get interesting, I like the interplay of the instruments until the bitreak, which was unexpected but cool. I like the distant vocals on it. Then the songs picks up where it left and it's pretty cool, I like the harmonies towards the end of the song. And it ends. Rather abruptly wtf.

Well, this didn't blow my mind, but it was far more enjoyable than the rest of songs on this round, probably because of the band's unique but weird style. 3.5/5

ariich +19
Elite 19
Parama +18.5

It would seem that I'm glad I got eliminated when I had the chance.   :lol
I was looking forward to all the dad rock you had in mind :P



I apologize for these taking so long, thought I'd have time since I've done rounds before while being out, but didn't plan my shit well. So, have your results!

(https://i.imgur.com/bJuo3b3.png)

Parama: The Ocean - Stenian (Mount Sorrow)
I remember having checked out this record some years ago but didn't get too far into it before dropping it. So let's see, was this worth it? Well, kinda. I like the beginning, it's pretty chill and sets up the main melodies before the heaviness slowly builds up.

The riff that breaks in kinda remind me of those in Obscure Sphinx's Void Mother - in fact the song at this point stikes me as similar to that album but of course doing something different, mostly on the atmosphere and the vocals. Which I don't find any interesting tbh, this songs wouldn't work as instrumental so I think it's just this singer that does nothing to me, his performance doesn't convince me.

Riffs are just... ok I guess? The guitars don't do anything particularly interesting here unlike the cool strings (they are that right?) that I wished were more prominent on the mix and had a bigger role in the songwriting. So yeah, Paramacore doesn't seem to work on me most of the time sadly. 3/5


home: OWEL - All I'll Ever Know
You're right, this band share many similarities with TDH, which for many would be a great attractive. But since I am not floored by Casey's music, the appeal won't get me from that place. And I guess it's alright? The chorus is ok, I like the instrumentation on it, but it's mostly the vocal melodies that I find fairly boring tbh, just not engaging for me. The rest of the song just feels like a bunch of fills between each chorus, with no real merit on their own - not bad, but they aren't of any particular interest. Maybe it's just that this band is too attached to their influences, for this is just a nice song that doesn't strike me a anything more than that. 3/5


Train of Naught: Mechina - On the Wings of Nefeli
"What do you get when you mix sci-fi/space sounding atmospheres with deathmetal, djent and Two Steps From Hell-like orchestration?" says your review on RYM, and in my case, I'd answer that while it's an original combination, in the end, it's just a mix of things I'm not fond of (except sci-fi atmospheres ofc), and the sum of them isn't very appealing either. The drumming is boring and predictable, guitar work is only interesting at times when it's glitchy, I don't care about the growls at all. The breakdowns are pretty nice actually, mostly the last section of the song. Sadly it ends in a transition with the next song, which is always annoying for roulette purposes. 3/5


kingshmegland: This Day and Age - More of a climb, less of a walk
So this is like proggy Indie Rock, kinda? One thing that annoys me from this genre (and from a lot of 2000s music) is the lack of good pacing and balance, with the singer overwhelming the song, almost never shutting up. Only does so at the end for a pretty cool ending, but really, I don't like this approach that many bands take, rushing into different parts of the song without any sort of good progression not instrumental breaks. Besides that, it's got some nice melodies yeah, but, I dunno, I don't feel this is any special at all, really. You said this was the band before The Reign of Kindo - dunno which members remain from this or if it was just a comparison, but I think I just prefer the latter. +3/5


Elite: White Moth Black Butterfly - Evelyn
This record seemed to be all over the place last year, which is weird because I haven't heard of these guys before (seems I have one of their albums wishlisted tho, huh). Anyway, to the song: it's kind of weird, with the strings and the operatic vocals around the middle not really fitting with the rest of the song, kinda like having a guest sax solo in a song - sure it's cool, but had it been better integrated in the songwriting, would have yielded better results. The main two singers make a nice duo, taking turns to sing and harmonizing together.

I find the chorus fairly mediocre tho, just bland melodies all over it. Atmosphere is quite nice, I like the strings, but I'm not sure if the drums should have had such presence in the mix - it's not doing anything remarkable so it doesn't hurt too much.

So, uh, yeah, this was ok. They have a style and I always appreciate that, but I think the songwriting here is pretty weak, with cool ideas that could have been better executed. 3.5/5


ariich: The Cat Empire - Song For The Day
I have a kind of allergy to ska, because of all the lame national bands here that are played on TV and radio. This seems a bit more interesting, with some reggae influences, and even some jazzy vibes. And... it's ok, I mean, it doesn't feel like something you'd put other than for background. It's got some cool melodies and there isn't something I particularly dislike about it, just that maybe I'm burnt on this kind of music and this doesn't offer something so different enough to appeal me. 3.5/5


Tomislav95: Kaddisfly - Campfire
I think I saw Parama saying this was El Cielo but better, and while I can hear the similarities in style, this is certainly different. From this track I don't perceive as much diversity or experimentation as dredg put on that record, bearing more similarities to normal 2000s alternative rock yet still having a sound of its own. For instance, the singer's voice and style don't strike me as unique, but the use of samples and piano give this more personality.

Anyways, comparisons aside, this was a solid track. The chorus is quite catchy and memorable, and guitars don't do anything special most of the time except on those calmer bits which are nice. It's a well-paced and balanced piece, and... just that. Sure I like the ending and the breaks, but nothing here felt really outstanding. But I'm still curious about this album so I guess I'll give it a try anyway. 3.5/5


Kattoelox: Chris Joss - Tune Down
Oh yeah this is definitely not djent at all :lol. This is some pretty cool downtempo music like what I've been digging lately, kinda reminds me a bit of Air and Royksopp. The bass is simple and groovy, beats don't anything special, but work, and those guitars are pretty cool. It's a little weird that this song feels like it ended at around the middle, only to resume things again, which was kind of an awkward choice. I like the little jam vibes from this. So yeah, this is nothing groundbreaking but it's pretty cool and appeals me so I'll check this album, I love me some chill music. 4/5


Evermind: Bjorn Riis - Disappear
Seems this is from a solo album by Airbag's leader, nice. Never listened to them as I've heard of the Pink Floyd worship, and it quite shows here. As you mentioned, quite some similarities to Gilmour's On An Island because it's a very atmospheric, calm and guitar-centered song with some strings, but I don't mind since this got a bit of personality. I really like the buildups and the emotions here. His voice isn't the most interesting one so am glad the instrumentation is the focus.

So yeah, lovely atmosphere and great melodies, wished it had a bit more of a progression on the structure, but overall I like it quite a bit. +4/5


Nekov: Leech - Silent State Optimizer
I'll admit this has been quite a grower for me, went from not caring at all for this song to enjoying it a lot. Maybe it's because, for the most part, it's subtle and low, feeling like part of a soundtrack. Yet what won me was how engaging the whole thing feels, like a little journey instead of just a collection of nice sections with no progression at all.

It's quite easy on the ears, I love the soft piano and guitar work - so easy it feels not long at all despite clocking at 8:36 mins. I love the climax starting at the seventh minute, the synth work and the background sounds are very nice.

So despite having a few musical ideas that are repeated over and other with just enough progression, it somehow works for me. +4/5


Bolsters: Perturbator - Vantablack
Well this is almost cheating - only reason I didn't ban this was because, although I love Hotline Miami and Perturbator's songs are some of my favorites on it, haven't checked his stuff yet (apart from the song 'Humans are an easy prey' or something, which is rad). So yeah, this has got some damn good beats, very catchy and make me tap my feet on the floor - when a song gets a physical reaction out of me, you know it's a good tune (unless I cringe, which naturally occurs when exposed to power metal). Maybe I just like electronic music a lot these days. I love the synths here, so layered and rough, and his vocals are simple but very effective. Synth Pop / Wave is something I should definitely check out more of, because what I know it's excellent, like this track. 4.5/5



Positions

ariich +22.5
Bolsters +22.5
Elite 22.5
tomislav95 22
Evermind 22
Nekov 22
Parama +21.5
kingshmegland +21.5
Train of Naught +20.5
Katteolox +20
home 20




Some nice shifts in the standings, fellas. ariich is starting to lose the lead, so there's still hope for several players to get a chance to get into the final EP round. Send within the next 48 hours, I promise faster results now that I'm by myself.

Glad you liked that track. The abrupt halt in the middle is a little jarring but I love how chill it is. The whole album's a good listen. The art's cool, too.

Trends indicate my next pick will be a bomb, though  :lol

I had no idea you were even aware of Perturbator's existence, just thought you'd be into some of his more chill and atmospheric tracks like this one. I was actually considering this and another Perturbator track for the EP (Femme Fatale if you're curious, and literally the only two song I had in mind for a potential EP :lol), but I needed something strong to get me back in the running - glad to see that it worked.

I'll send the next one tomorrow.

Nice. You should try the album since as you say, is a nice journey.

I know what I'm gonna send next, just need to figure out which song. I'll get on to that as soon as I finish listening to what I'm listening right now.

 :'(

I think it's safe to say I'm the only person who gets hyped over that Mechina album :lol I'm in good company in the 3/5 camp though, Stenian and All I'll Ever Know are both amazing.

Most of the reason White Moth Black Butterfly got so much attention was because a lot of us were expecting a new TesseracT album last year, and when this dropped it was at least something to fill the void :lol if you didn't know that is the same singer as the current TesseracT guy so that's why.

Gonna send something more risky now

Good to see Bjorn Riis doing so good in this roulette, but now I have no idea what to send next. :biggrin:

Edit: in fact I just realized that except that one intentional fluke in a power/prog-metal round, I've been doing pretty great in this roulette so far.

Yeah been digging a lot of chill music lately so glad you sent me that, I'll surely check the abum.

I had no idea you were even aware of Perturbator's existence
I've been for a couple of years but I should really check his stuff soon,  now I've got no excuse :P

Nice. You should try the album since as you say, is a nice journey.

Not bad for a roulette where you had no hopes for :P

It's a fancy way of putting .25. I went through results on each round and realised they were counted well but somehow wrote your score for the previous round as +18.5 instead of +17.5, oops  :lol

few quick questions:
1. i won't make it to the EP round but how long is the EP max limit
2. accordingly, if we send a 10+ minute song before the EP round will we not be able to send a 10+ minute song during the EP round

Haven't planned it yet but I think I'll take the same approach as with my previous roulette (https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=45491.msg2125902#msg2125902). As for the 10+ min song thing, I'll think about it but it's likely I'll allow it.

The idea is to make an EP not an album :lol. I've also been considering doing a final album round instead -it's what the cool kids do these days, right?- but since I'm harder to please with individual records, a varied EP would probably be better.

Maybe it's just that this band is too attached to their influences, for this is just a nice song that doesn't strike me a anything more than that.

Nah guess I just sent the wrong song, they have a lot of songs that are not as TDH inspired and are perhaps more uniquely OWEL. This was easily their most TDHesque song, in fact I think on some songs they do draw more on post rock bands like Sigur Ros.

Thought I should update on roulette albums as I finish giving them enough listens. Beginning with one from Stadler, who sadly didn't make it past the elimination round.


The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots


(https://fanart.tv/fanart/music/1f43d76f-8edf-44f6-aaf1-b65f05ad9402/albumcover/yoshimi-battles-the-pink-robots-55ba5193ddd69.jpg)

My first listen: 'WTF is this?'. Last listen: 'Ooooooh Yoshimiiiiii they doooon't believe meeeeee'. But seriously, this one took a while to grow on me because of how weird it is at times, going from simple guitar ballads to orchestrated pieces with electronic beats and weird effects to damn catchy pop tunes - plus it seems half the songs were recorded live? Very quirky album, it's both fun and emotionally touching. Stadler sent me Do You Realize?? and as I predicted, it was probably the simplest song on the record, and not close to my favorite here.

Well this is a bit of an unexpected entry considering your previous ones - is it probably for the better? Maybe.

I don't know, it's pretty heavy and has solid riffs but it doesn't resonate too much with me on an emotional level.

This is one of the weirdest songs I've received on this roulette so far, and it's not very good.

Although it's quite proggy, it's fairly listenable actually. Even creative at times.

This is one of the weirdest songs I've received on this roulette so far, and it's actually pretty cool.

This has a bombastic, even majestic vibe to it.

Yeah this got a nice relaxed vibe, but dunno if it's any special.

At times this reminded me of Tool but better.

There's nothing very special about it, but it's enjoyable and less cheesy than expected.

For some reason expected it to be awful generic crap, and... well it's not great, but kinda good?

Interesting to see how [ARTIST] has been involved in many varied projects, and this seems promising.

give me that sweet 2/5
Title: FINALLY
Post by: Sacul on February 16, 2018, 11:42:36 AM
Parama: Exist - If or When
The counterpart to Trainy's entry, this is one of the weirdest songs I've received on this roulette so far, and it's not very good. Yeah it's not generic at all and that's always a bonus on my eyes.

However, this is not really up my alley for the most part. Sure the riffs are solid for the most part, but I don't really like the harsh vocals here - they don't annoy me or anything, but I usually associate extreme vocals with extreme emotions and I can't connect with those here, reason why I prefer them in angry music in general. Thus I prefer the calmer sections on this song, mostly between the beginning and the heavy section the middle, with those great vocal harmonies.

But then there's this boring instrumental section on the second half, I don't really care about the guitar solo here at all and it drags a lot imo. Even without that section it wouldn't appealed me a lot, though. 2.5/5


Tomislav95: Paradise Lost - Faith Divides Us-Death Unites Us
This has been a band that I think I might have listened to many times during plug sessions but never really catched my attention, and this track isn't very different. I don't know, it's pretty heavy (kinda) and has solid riffs but it doesn't resonate too much with me on an emotional level, which I guess was what the band was aiming for. It just feels like standard modern metal, in terms of structure and melodies - surely they might have had a hand in influencing that, but it's... just a solid song. Wouldn't say it's generic either, they have their sound, but it's not a very unique one. Maybe they have more interesting songs, but this one doesn't do much for me. 3/5


Evermind: John Illsley - Only Time Will Tell
So there's this guitar ballad here and... there's nothing very special about it, but it's enjoyable and less cheesy than expected. It's kind of a love song I think? Or maybe looking back on a past love - I don't care tho. I like the male / female duo, it's nice. And... that's it I guess, there's not much to say about it. 3/5


Bolsters: Anneke van Giersbergen & Arstidir - Pavane
Well this is a bit of an unexpected entry considering your previous ones - is it probably for the better? Maybe. I received an Arstidir song on my first roulette, and although I haven't revisited their self-titled much, didn't enjoy enough to ban them.

So this is a curious entry, hearing Anneke singing mostly in a capella for the most part, with some guy on the background harmonizing with her. It's a nice mood, accentuated by the strings. But I feel the song doesn't really go anywhere - seems that this is an album of covers so maybe I'm just not familiar with the original pieces? It's nice chamber folk music, yeah, and relaxing, but I feel something is missing, probably on my part. It just doesn't feel like a very memorable piece in general. 3.5/5


Kattoelox: Kings of Leon - Muchacho
I don't know where but I feel I've listened to something like this quite some times, mostly the guitars here. They're nice, yeah, but I feel I've heard this style a lot since the Twin Peaks soundtrack, and even on some unrelated records like Angels of Light's How I Loved You, which is pretty folky and kind of country. Also on lots of post-rock albums. Beyond that, it's... got some nice bass, yeah, and the occasional piano is nice, but there aren't very unique ideas here, and it ends up pretty quick before they can fully develop so... yeah, a nice relaxing track, but just that. 3.5/5


Elite: Stone Temple Pilots - Tripping on a Hole in a Paper Heart
For some reason expected it to be awful generic crap, and... well it's not great, but kinda good? I mean, it's got a lot of alternative rock and grunge here, so didn't have any hopes. But it's just a decent track, short but goes to the point, it's catchy, production sucks, riffs are ok, not very creative, some personality here, got nice grooves, yeah it's ok. 3.5/5


ariich: The River Empires - A Dimmer Lux
Interesting to see how Casey Crescenzo has been involved in many varied projects (this is the second of his I receive on the roulette so far), and this seems promising. It's a bit of an energic folky song with the acoustic guitars and violins, but kinda proggy in how it's written in terms of melodies and structure. And for some reason it feels more as a piece of a bigger whole than a strong song on its own, likely the case seeing this is part of a massive double concept album. Seems the record is pretty varied in terms of instrumentation and structure so maybe I'd have liked this song more in that context. 3.5/5


home: The Family Crest - Beneath the Brine
This is one of the reasons why I don't like elimination roulettes - sometimes one of the bottom players ends up sending a surprisingly solid track late in the game. to the song: this has a bombastic, even majestic vibe to it. The chorus is huge, with the strings, percussion and acoustic guitars reminding me of some movie soundtrack in a way, but this track has more personality and its roots in indie music rather than classical. The singer somehow reminds of the TDH guy, and even some of the melodies here are TDH-esque, but more up my alley tbh. My main complaint is that it gets a little repetitive and would have appreciated more instrumental bits. 4/5


kingshmegland: I Mother Earth - God Rocket (Into The Heart Of Las Vegas)
Oh yes, I really like this atmospheric, electronic intro. Weird guitars kick in and things become interesting the kicking into the chorus, which sounds similar to what Brand New would end up doing years later - most of the calmer sections are like that, but I'm not complaining. Then back to the heavy part, at times this reminded me of Tool but better. Very solid riffs and the calm / heavy structured in the middle works quite well.

So yeah, I don't have much more to say, great riffs, solid melodies, and the Tool influence is always welcome. 4/5


Nekov: Dave Kerzner - Hypocrites
When the first chords kicked in, and after seeing it was 8 mins and a half long, expected some boring progfest or dadrock worship. And although it's quite proggy, it's fairly listenable actually. Even creative at times. Yes, vocals have quite some 70's flavor to them, and guitars for the most part are maybe too inspired by Rush at times, but around the third min they change of tone for a far more modern sound, and the song does too. This part reminds me quite a bit of Porcupine Tree, then come some nice synths and the guitar kind of soloing in the background.

And it keeps evolving from here, only maintaining some core melodies and chord progressions. That's its biggest strength imo, and what keeps this track always interesting instead of having a more conventional structure. Although it is clearly very inspired by both modern and old prog, is the solid songwriting (this particular kind being one of my very favorites) that ends up making it stand out. +4/5


Train of Naught: öOoOoOoOoOo - Fucking Freaky Futile Freddy
I recall some of my friends going nuts over this album when it was released (even followed the controversy about its artwork) and just ignored it because I assumed it was probably black metal or too avant-garde for my taste. I might have been wrong tho!

This is one of the weirdest songs I've received on this roulette so far, and it's actually pretty cool - there's this kind of childish yet twisted playfulness. I saw it being called "what high school kids would think weird music is" and it's partially true, I mean, the vocals are kind of dumb but not out of tone, and there's this electronic organ on the background :lol. But, somehow, I like it! It's fresh, catchy and memorable, and quite fun. Took some time to grow on me but I think it was worth it. +4/5

ariich +26

Kings of Leon fans are usually those that are on board with what they make and those who think only the first 2 albums matter. I like the way they sound these days, very chill slow songs and spacey but catchy anthems, it's a vibe that suits me personally. They do that Knocked Up song, you may have heard it if you ever YouTube the intro (was used in commercials a lot, at least in the USA). Nothing wrong with your opinion though :)

That's probably fair - it's why I found it hard to choose which song to send. This is one that stands out in context (among quite a few) and works standalone better than most, but the album isn't about individual tracks at all. If you liked what you heard but just didn't feel there was much to it on its own, then you should definitely check out the album, it's absolutely wonderful.

Title: RESULTS!!!!
Post by: Sacul on February 28, 2018, 10:04:11 AM
Some of these writeups came naturally to me, others I struggled to put my thoughts down, so sorry if they're not very helpful :lol
(https://i.imgur.com/u3p5qDH.png)
Kattoelox: Dark Rooms - I Get Overwhelmed
This track is conflicting - on the one hand, it's creative, blending symphonic and electronic sounds quite well plus other neat little sounds. On the other, I don't really like the lyrics nor the vocal style at all, they're just the dumb hipster stuff that's popular these days.

It's got a pretty interesting style overall, and hadn't I been annoyed by those things I mentioned, I certainly would have enjoyed this track a lot more. +3/5


home: Eefje de Visser - Scheef
Interesting track, I like the atmosphere set by the gentle, pulsing beat, and her gentle voice, plus those marimbas (I guess?) are a nice touch. There are some very nice harmonies here and the vibe's pretty nice, up my alley almost, reminds me a bit of Alt-J's last record.

However, I think my main grip with the track is how busy it feels for the most part, she barely having a break for the most part, thus making it difficult to me to identify what the different sections of the track are. So it's great when the last two mins are some instrumental bliss, I really like those synths.

On a side note, at first the foreign singing bothered me a bit but quickly got used to it, I wonder what the lyrics are about. 3.5/5


Train of Naught: IDEK - Approaching Storms
Before I forget, if you meet the band, would you ask him to kick their mastering engineer in the ass? This is way too compressed, which is sad since it sounds well recorded and mixed, and that's a waste of their money.

So to the song, it certainly has strong BTBAM vibes, with the clean/harsh vocal style, the quirky and funny sections, but really lacking that strong unique sound and variety. Sure there's a solid songwriting here, it's not too derivative, and gladly don't fall into some prog self-indulgence, so there's hope the band will go places in the future if they manage to carve a style more of their own. I can definitely feel why you're into them tho. 3.5/5


kingshmegland: The Pineapple Thief - Tightly Wound
I've listened to some songs by these guys here and there, and although I get the "Porcupine Tree copycats" vibes from their first records, this song feels pretty much a product of their own. The mood at the beginning almost seem to hint that this will be a Halloween-themed track but seems it isn't. Vocals have a style somehow reminding me of Gorillaz, but they also feel lazy, and the guitars have this peculiar sound to them, I like them. The chorus is the weakest part of the track tho, melodies are pretty bland, and breaks the mood. I like the instrumental ending, it's a surprising and pleasant change.

So, all in all, it's... ok, I think? Like, this doesn't do much to me, and I feel they might have better tracks. 3.5/5


Parama: Cleric - The Treme
Oh boy, this song was such a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, there are lots of very cool and creative ideas up my alley, like the spoken samples on the background, some of the jazzy drumming at times, vocals are interesting and add up much to the song, even the djent-ish riffs were pretty cool, and the variety on this track is great, I dig the use of piano overall. Then there's this amazing section that begins at 6:30, damn.

On the other hand, this song just feels too random for no good reason, and while I don't mind that approach as long as every part, every idea is good at least, half of those here just are bland, too dissonant, or completely breaking the mood, like the ending, which is very anticlimatic, making the last minute of the track quite a waste of time and not a proper resolution to the great section I mentioned before.

Yet all in all, I enjoyed it more than I was really expecting to. +3.5/5


ariich: Kiasmos - Blurred
I think it's a little obvious I've been digging lots of chill music lately, and my favorite roulette tracks usually are on the softer side. That means I've taken my time to explore and understand what I enjoy in this stuff, but I'm also open to more things. Take for instance this track, starts with some nice electronic beats along with simple piano chords, slowly building up with the synths and the strings... just to not reach any sort of climax, which is a bummer. It repeats this approach again without the beat, and it's odd because using the same ideas for a building on what sounds like a sort of bridge feels weird to me.

But not everything is lost, there's a very nice atmosphere here and despite its shortcomings, it's quite a relistenable track, possibly making for some nice background music. Olafur Arnalds is a guy I need to explore yet (really liked his collaboration with Nils Frahm), so this was an interesting entry into one of his, I think, multiple facets. +3.5/5


Elite: Losers - Chainsaw
For being a "random song", this is actually pretty decent. Heavy, catchy, highly digitalized industrial guitars and drums, almost like Pendulum but heavier and less electronic. Vocals feel closer to alternative rock than what's typical on this genre, and that's refreshing. Style has lots of energy and somehow reminds me of 2000s NIN instead of their 90s output, that's cool. Also appreciated is the use of real, dynamic drums instead of some lame drum machine.

And since it's a short and simple song, there's not much more to say about it - I like it quite a bit. 4/5


Tomislav95: Maybeshewill - He Films The Clouds Pt.2
I think I've heard some other tracks from these guys that just felt like boring, generic post-rock. So this is a pleasant surprise when the electronic beat kicks in, and it's not some generic preset, it actually fits the piano quite well. Although the first half of the track is a buildup, it does so in a very interesting way, but it's the second half of the song that really grabs me. The harmonies are simply wonderful, and the last buildup is well done, feels with more impact than it if were only the guitars throughout the whole track like many crescendocore bands do. Melodies overall feel a little soundtrack-ish but I don't mind, the songwriting is varied and although a bit all over the place, it works. This track feels like a little journey. +4/5


Bolsters: Hybrid - Break My Soul
I like Hybrid's debut, If I Survive being my favorite track, but it's a very consistent record so the band wasn't banned. This song however, is something different. Breakbeat electronics, many synths, strong female vocals, and symphonic elements. I like how it's structured, with a nice breakdown in the middle, separating these huge, bombastic choruses. It certainly has a very interesting, modern vibe that seems to be more aligned with my current tastes. +4/5


Nekov: Jake Bowen - City 1816
I really like the piano on this track, somehow those simple melodies make me feel nostalgic, maybe they remind me of C148's wonderful Minecraft soundtrack somehow (got into the game back when it was Alpha, wtf I feel old). The electronic beats are simple and pleasing, I like how the track goes places and doesn't just loop them with little variation. Synths have this nice chiptune sound to them, and the multiple layers of effects and pads work pretty well. Overall I'd say it's a chill track, almost feels like the soundtrack to a game (vibe reminds me of 0edit's Neotokyo OST). Yeah it's a nice little song but one that falls into what I've been digging lately so props for that. +4/5


(https://i.imgur.com/vqCNLDJ.png)Evermind: John Cage - 4'33"
I was about to give you a 5/5 for this masterpiece, but since you dropped off this roulette, a pink star should suffice.

It's noticeable since the mix seems well done that the instruments lack much impact, mostly the drums. Listen to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxiY0MIZEF0), and compare it to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e62Zgg03n_o). It's easy to hear which sounds better and is less compressed :P

On a side note, at first the foreign singing bothered me a bit but quickly got used to it, I wonder what the lyrics are about. 3.5/5
Heey, I'm not exactly 100% sure what her lyrics are about as she writes in a kind of free/poetic way, using the (north) sea as a metaphor in most of the album. In this song ithe sea is a kind of safe haven where she submerges to find silence from both the busy world around her and herself and at the end of the song she slowly resurfaces.

I'll send shortly :azn

Title: RESULTS!!!!!!
Post by: Sacul on March 09, 2018, 10:37:23 PM
Here it is, fellas, the final round! For half of you :P. To those that leave us, you've sent some great tracks and will make me check several albums so thanks for playing :metal



(https://i.imgur.com/35qoccf.png)

Elite: Kayo Dot - All the Pain in All the Wide World
This song is a mess in plenty of senses, the most noticeable for me being the production, too compressed and muddy but I guess that was the idea. The second and most important one, is the songwriting: this is just all over the place, with Toby rambling, instrumentation meandering more and more. I don't understand what this song was trying to do other than maybe establish a kind of psychedelic, synthwave-y atmosphere, probably inspired after watching Drive (while thinking it was a good movie :neverusethis: ). So... yeah, this is just one giant mess that hardly has any identifiable sections, filled with bland melodies, and that overstays its welcome. It doesn't inspire any negative feelings - just bores me a lot. 2.5/5


Parama: Spectral Lore - The Veiled Garden
Actually the beginning of this song is pretty interesting, for the first 3 minutes, despite not being much up my alley. Then I get a little bored but things get cool in that ambient section at around minute 6. The buildup is well done, then it breaks into heavy guitars, and... blast beats. And more black metal of course. For another 6 minutes in which I've lost the little interest I had. Sure, I'll give it that the songwriting is pretty varied here, but black metal is a sound and aesthetic I don't like from the go, one that just subtracts by default so unless there's something that really compensates for it, it's likely it won't get a good score from me.

This track certainly feels more accomplished and ambitious than most black metal I've listened to, so I see why you love this record so much. Sadly, it's not really my thing but I'll give it some merit. 3/5


Bolsters: Purity Ring - begin again
This is a pretty repetitive song, using very few melodies and lyrics that rhyme too much. Hooks feel kind of cheap and generic. I don't like the trap-influenced beats on this track nor how processed the vocals and keys feel. But, it's not really a bad piece. Despite its shortcomings, I find the production to be decent, and overall it's enjoyable - more of the passive kind you'd get by something on the background. Just another pop song. 3/5


kingshmegland: DADA - Star You Are
When the guitars appeared, almost thought this would be a lame adult contemporary track or something :lol . Anyways, I don't understand the lyrics too much but they seem to be about a toxic relationship, or a creepy follower/stalker? Kinda contrasts with the soft instrumentation in a nice way. Which is pretty cool but way overshadowed by the acoustic guitars in the mix imo. Certainly the vocal harmonies are quite well arranged and pleasing... when the melodies are. Parts like 'I wanted too much' feel kind awkward and the singer's voice becomes a little grating.

Other than that... it feels like a pretty simple ballad in terms of structure and arrangements. I'm not sure there's much special about this track. 3.5/5


home: Ólafur Arnalds - Tomorrow's Song
This style reminds me of some of Nils Frahm output, lovely piano songs with some sounds from the instrument, the chair, hammers hitting the strings, etc. And this... is nice little song, but just that. Could easily have been part of a soundtrack as it is comfy and pleasant to listen to, but rather forgettable. I feel this guy has way better tunes on him. 3.5/5


Train of Naught: Kauan - Kit
I'm a little conflicted with this one - it has such great beginning, with a lovely ambient section with interesting samples, and a great buildup, tinged with melancholy. Love the electric guitar on this track, mostly the clean playing. And there are some excellent vocal harmonies. Yeah it's pretty nice. Until... the second breakdown, with the acoustic guitars and the slow metal music building up. To end up in... nice riffs but lame growls, instrumentation nowhere close as intense as before. And the song ends up abruptly, but you already warned me of that. I don't know, has this track ended up earlier, would have definitely gotten more points from me. +3.5/5


Kattoelox: Cat Stevens - Where do the Children Play?
I wonder why this guy wants to know the whereabouts of minors? :P About the song, at first I was just bored because it felt like another folk song. But it's been slowly growing on me - I like how each chorus adds something small but interesting, the synths have a lovely sound, the occasional background vocals add up to the mood, and I like how the drums break in. It's a simple song, but a pretty comfy one.

On a side note, took me a while to realize this song is from 1970! Definitely a great version you sent me. 4/5


Nekov: Agnes Obel - Familar
Now I realize where I had listened to this track before, was it a part of Dark's soundtrack, right? Seems you've been digging it :P . Anyways, this track is pretty nice, I like the strings here, and her voice, while not singing in a very unique style, fits well the mood. The other vocals are a little weird, in the sense they feel somehow processed and unnatural, but again, they fit. Somehow it felt the whole track was about to build up to something or change in mood or structure near the end, and it didn't. Which is ok. Overall, nice lovely song. 4/5


Tomislav95: MGMT - Little Dark Age
Heh, I remember this album was memed, because the day of release /mu/ was flooded with yellow posts :lol . Anyways to the music, we got some interesting synthpop with more discrete beats instead of the typical bombastic ones. Vocals are quite processed and along with synths, they all have a sound of their own, I'll give them that. It's kinda quirky and fun, trying to be spooky. And the little instrumental sections are pretty cool.

I guess my main complaint is that it feels a little repetitive, mostly the vocals varying very little in the melodies it sings. But I'll admit it grew on me quite a bit. 4/5


ariich: Oddarrang - Central Sun
This is quite the obscure but intriguing submission I always get in roulettes. I just can't think of a genre tag, it's kinda jazzy but also post-rock-ish but also uuhhhh folk something? It's definitely an atmospheric piece that for some reason would fit as a soundtrack to... something :lol . I really like the melodies played by the strings here and the vocal harmonies fit nicely. I don't know what else to say, it's a pretty interesting track and a creative one. 4/5

Nekov 34.5

From three ties last round to a clean top 5 now, congratulations to those that have entered the EP round! I'll post rules soon, but they'll likely be the same as my previous roulette's. Start planning something, haven't defined a submission date yet so take your time.
Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v3. Less frustration™️, ROUND 8 RESULTS!!!1!!11!!
Post by: Sacul on March 09, 2018, 10:37:50 PM
Finals
As I said in the OP, there's an EP round for the top 5 players to determine the winner. Rules are the following:

Scoring
So I didn't want something that would make Nekov the only winner even if he screwed up, making this final round pointless. But even then, it'd be unfair to make him lose right away without taking the first 10 rounds into consideration, so a "best EP wins" wouldn't work. Ultimately, I've crafted a middle-of-the-road system, so that if he fails, the bottom players might have a chance to steal the crown if they shine, or tie the first place at least. The rest can also take the first spot if they do well ofc. So, how your EP shall be scored:

So the score should look like:
Score = EP average out of 20 + flow + RP
Thus, the maximum score you can get on this round is 25+RP.

I think you weren't around back then, but I did kind of the same thing when I got to the final EP round in Parama's elimination roulette. My EP was half acoustic guitar ballads (Arstidir, Mark Knopfler) and half power metal (Primal Fear, Serious Black). :lol

What's with [GENRE] artists having such bad taste for synths?

Right off the bat, I notice quite some [BAND] influence here, which usually isn't a very good thing for me - I don't like their style and it's overused on a lot of [GENRE] imo.

So to the song, it feels way fresher and more interesting than the previous tracks, with nice style of their own and quite some folky influence.

This sounds like mine but ive got to disagree with the keyboards.  It's from a concept album and the keyboard patches are very different that normal prog bands.

More snippets, from the rest of the EPs  :corn :corn

The transition from the previous track to this one is very good, feels somehow natural and fitting.

Well, the flow here is kind of a mess

Synthpop? Oh boy.

Overall, still feels a bit like good background music, but it's more diverse and better structured than the previous song.

From a pretty bland track, to one that's been in my head on repeat for days.

To end the EP, a more upbeat track, interesting choice. But not sure if the best one, because feels pretty much like [GENRE] music but a bit more elaborate.

Oh, now to a track with vocals, nice.

I love how this track begins, with subtle beats and synths until the actual beats drop

Title: Re: Sacul's controversial roulette v3. Less frustration™️, SNIPPETS!!!
Post by: Sacul on March 26, 2018, 06:44:01 PM
Let's begin with:

5
kingshmegland: Sacul's finals
Aisles - 4:45 AM
Right off the bat, I notice quite some Rush influence here, which usually isn't a very good thing for me - I don't like their style and it's overused on a lot of prog imo. So I think the more interesting parts here are when they get far from that influence. It has some nice things going on with the vocals at times, and the guitar solo is ok. But that's... pretty much all there is to it, really. Had I been a huge Rush fan I'd have probably enjoyed these melodies a lot more, but I don't. It just feels like bland prog copycats of that band, very safe music. 3/5

Kyros - The Lamb, The Badger & The Bee
What's with prog artists having such bad taste for synths? These are fairly generic, cheesy ones, at least at the beginning. There are some original bits on this track, mostly the instrumental sections (well just the beginning, boring guitar solo), and the break at min 5, but for the most part, is feels like a less inventive, poor man's Haken, mostly on the chorus. +3/5

Umphrey's McGee - Rocker
I've actually listened to another album by these guys, I think it was Anchor Drops. I need to revisit it because I enjoyed what I listened some years ago. So to the song, it feels way fresher and more interesting than the previous tracks, with nice style of its own and quite some folky influence. I quite like the clean guitar melodies here. Chorus is just ok. And that's pretty much it, feels kinda repetitive for what it is, but it's pleasant enough I guess. 3.5/5

No More Pain - Bleed
The intro really reminds me of Tool, mostly the drums and bass, and the buildup to the first riffs is great. And it goes great until it reaches the forum, which is prog metal 101. After that there's more Tool goodness and the chorus again. And then a pretty standard, safe and boring instrumental section that adds nothing and drags for too long, only showing how much of a mess the whole song is, being pretty inconsistent in style and mood, lacking any focus. And I love songs that go through many styles, this one just doesn't have any common direction between all of them.

Which is a shame since I like the heavy parts quite a bit, and that cool dissonant, menacing section at around min 9 would have worked way better had the song somehow built up to it, because it's pretty good. +3/5

Flow
This EP kinda feels consistent in how these groups write their melodies and structure their chord progressions, however, there's no real flow to these songs - from the first track to the second one things got a little heavier, then pretty chill on Rocker, only to become quite heavy on the last track... which would make more sense had there been one or two more songs before the calmer one, but this way, the buildup feels cut. I think Rocker would have made for a pleasant opener, flowing into the Aisles track fairly well, and from there, getting heavier and climaxing in Bleed's distorted ending. 3/5

Final score
RP: 0
Flow: 2
EP Score: ((3 + 3.25 + 3.5 + 3.25) * 4) / 4 = 13 (out of 20)
Total: RP + Flow + EP score = 0 + 3 + 13 = 16

It's sad you were cut, king, but thanks for playing! You've left me with several albums to check out, like The Raconteurs and Echolyn ones which are pretty good ;D

Title: 4 IS FOR BAD LUCK
Post by: Sacul on March 27, 2018, 05:43:17 AM

tomislav95: Sometimes I Hide In My Mind: The Poetic EP

Rae Morris - Physical Form
On the one hand, it feels a bit like most modern Art/Electro Pop artists out there, and that's not even a style I enjoy immensely. On the other hand, this is catchy and well produced, with just enough style not to bore me. I sadly don't have much to say, it's not a very memorable track to me. 3/5

Goldfrapp - Thea
From a pretty bland track, to one that's been in my head on repeat for days. You know I'm familiar with Felt Mountain, but didn't like it enough to ban it and explore more of her music. Heck, I regret it, this is excellent - from the slowly building beginning, to the awesome chorus with those huge beats and her high vocals, to the pretty weird and creative vocal stuff she does at min 3. It's a pretty short song loaded with many cool ideas that are quite well executed. Probably my favorite chorus and song from the whole round. 4.5/5

Low Roar - Friends Make Garbage (Good Friends Take It Out)
I've known of these guys for quite some time but didn't check them out, thinking they were post-rock :lol . Well, seems they are atmospheric folk something? It's a pretty chill, feel-good song, and the harmonica feels quite fitting. And that's pretty much it, really. The song doesn't really go anywhere and I guess that's fine if you love this kind of music. I just find it pleasant, but nothing more. +3/5

Micah P. Hinson - Beneath the Rose
More folk! This time it feels more elaborate and interesting than the previous song - I like the clean guitar melodies throughout and the piano and accordion fit quite well. Guy's got a charming voice, and the whole vibe is pretty nice. Then it ends. Which is kinda frustrating because there are good ideas here I felt could have been expanded, but then, maybe it makes more sense in an album context than as a standalone track. +3.5/5

Goldfrapp - Stranger
More Goldfrapp, now with an acoustic guitar and strings instead of electronic beats, and her classic whistles. Her voice is as haunting as in the previous track, and probably even more than in Felt Mountain.  I like how this song progresses, adding more instruments on the second chorus, then some wonderful synths, and a last gorgeous chorus. It's a wonderful kind of songwriting I enjoy a lot, but it can also be a bit rare to find, mostly in pop artists - I really need to check out this album. +4/5

Low Roar - Tonight, Tonight, Tonight
Yeah this is definitely more interesting than the other Low Roar song, with the electronic beats, the cello (?), and overall better songwriting and mood. I think the ending is kind of dumb and unfitting, with that noise going on for too long. But, just like that track, I don't have much to say about it, probably because both have a lot of style and lack much substance. But at least this one feel quite much like a closer, since it's the last track on the album it comes from.3.5/5

Flow
This is... confusing, because it begins with some poppier, more electronic songs, to switch towards folk-ish music til almost the end for no reason at all. Like, the stretch from Friends Make Garbage... to Stranger is very consistent in style and feels quite fitting and have a good flow, but the rest are quite out of place, except maybe Tonight*3 since it feels like a good closer despite being electronic in contrast with the mor organic previous tracks. Maybe had there been a more subtle change from style to style, I wouldn't have minded having both pop and folk in the EP, but as it is, I'm puzzled. 3/5

Final score
RP: 0.5
Flow: 3
EP Score: ((3 + 4.5 + 3.25 + 3.75 + 4.25 + 3.5) * 4) / 6 = 14.83 (out of 20)

Total: RP + Flow + EP score = 0.5 + 3 + 14.83 = 18.33

I'm sad I have to cut you right here, because you've sent me some great tracks throughout the roulette, and one of my favorites on this round. Thanks for playing, you've given me plenty of records to check out  :metal

Indeed, there's quite a gap between the 4th and the top 3, and a difference of 0.32 between 3rd and 1st :P.

Bolsters' also has some chill electronic tracks :P. Not complaining tho, I love that stuff.

Which is kinda weird since none of the songs really goes well with it :lol. But yeah, it was great to have you and would love for you to participate in a future roulette.

Thea is even better  :metal

Ok fellas, here's the deal: I'm gonna take a nap, study for a few hours afterwards, then post #3. The rest will be revealed tomorrow night, so you have more time to suffer  ;D
Title: THREE OF A PERFECT PAIR
Post by: Sacul on March 27, 2018, 09:54:29 PM

ariich: ariich EP
Koan Sound - 7th Dimension
I think I recall Infected Mushroom recommending this EP in an interview some time ago, but didn't check it out. I've listened to The Adventures of Mr. Fox tho, and that's an ok EP. This song sound similar in that vein, with glitchy beats and nice synths, nice, but I feel it's a little repetitive overall? There's no much variance of the main melody and it pretty much loops it for most of the song, until that very nice break at the ending. And I think that's pretty much all I have to say about this song - it's simple and nice, but feels more like a good background track rather than something for active listening. 3.5/5

Andrew Bayer - Paper Cranes
I like the calm beginning of this track, it's soothing, and the beats don't ruin the experience when they appear. Synths have a very nice sound to them, and production is quite good. However, I feel the same complaint from the previous track mostly applies here - until the break at the middle, it keeps repeating the same melodies over and over. But I'm glad that after the break they're slowly reintroduced gradually instead of just jumping back to them like nothing had happened, giving all some sort of progression. So yeah I definitely prefer the second half of this track. Overall, still feels a bit like good background music, but it's more diverse and better structured than the previous song. +3.5/5

Ott - The Queen of All Everything
The transition from the previous track to this one is very good, feels somehow natural and fitting. The whole beginning, with the background guitars, gently introducing the beats along with the uuuhh synths? Or some pretty distorted vocals? I've got no clue, it's a little weird, but I like it!

I feel this song has definitely a better sense of melody than the previous tracks, and boy these synths are lovely, there are plenty of layers here and they all sound wonderful. I remember listening to a track from Blumenkraft and while it was nice, felt less refined than this track. The second half has some new additional melodies and beats are a little different, so there's a simple but very pleasing progression in the songwriting, reaching a layered, wonderful climax without ever going full bombastic.

Despite being almost 7+ mins long, it didn't drag at any point and kept me engaged and pleased. A definite improvement over the previous songs. +4/5

Feed Me - Life Raft
To end the EP, a more upbeat track, interesting choice. But not sure if the best one, because feels pretty much like brostep music but a bit more elaborate. There's bass wobbles, glitchy vocals and synth stabs, but they play some typical tricks of EDM with predictable outcomes - sometimes Infected Mushroom do these but going into unexpected ways, like a guitar solo instead of dropping the bass for example. It's a catchy track, but the simple melodies feel a bit like typical EDM, and get a little repetitive.

So... that's about it, it doesn't feel particularly memorable, like the background music you'd find in some commercials directed towards young people I guess. +3/5

Flow
This EP has a pretty good flow overall, the transition between the first three tracks feels logical, and like I mentioned, Paper Cranes flows into The Queen... very, very well. However, I feel Life Raft is out of place, not making much sense it being a party song after the serene, melancholic previous track. Despite that, you managed to get 4 tracks that, for the most part, have a common sound but executed in very different ways. 4/5

Final score
RP: 1.25
Flow: 4
EP Score: ((3.5 + 3.75 + 4.25 + 3.25) * 4) / 4 = 14.75 (out of 20)
Total: RP + Flow + EP score = 1.25 + 4 + 14.75 = 20

Damn, after leading my roulette almost since the first round, it's sad you didn't get the crown, considering how close you are to #1. Thanks for playing! Was a blast having you, now I have much new cool music to check out :metal

Difference between #1 and #2 is pretty small, just 0.17. Also more snippets  :corn

Quote
Melodies are pretty catchy and memorable, and the sense of melancholy permeating the song is up my alley.

Synthpop with much emphasis on the pop, meaning pretty catchy melodies, but lame lyrics, mostly the chorus' ones

However, it feels pretty one dimensional in terms of structure, with not much variance throughout it, sticking to a same mood and melodies.

... somehow I get the feeling this is more of an interlude in an album or more fitting as a soundtrack rather than on its own, since I find myself enjoying it, but not being particularly amazed by anything in particular

Number 2 is bolsters since none of my songs are synthpop. I guess the first song in the EP could be melancholic maybe? But that could also be Bolsters.
So, guessing 3 and 4 are mine, which doesn't sound so good

Post by: Sacul on March 28, 2018, 06:24:04 PM
Sorry Nekov and Bolsters, forgot to mention you got cut for this round so didn't bother with your EPs, here's the real winners :2metal:
2
Kattoelox: Breath of the Wild playlist

Merzbow
- Harsh Noise #2-56.1
Wow, didn't know you liked this kind of music! Very intriguing stuff, I'll definitely send you some of this on your roulette, mostly after discovering the love we share for the Mario Galaxy games  :metal . +4.5/5

Ostura - The Room (Complete album)
I was really about to ask you to resend when I accidentally hit play and was blown away right from the beginning - really one of the best albums of all year! Redefines the genre completely and I'm sold. 5/5

Hypno5e - Baguettecore
Seems trainy got you into them, huh? Sadly, this is the big dud in your EP, bland music overall. 2.5/5

Merbow - White Noise #32-5.4
It's hard to describe this, but I really like it when the noise gets harsh. +4.5/5

Flow
These songs feel made for each other in a way that's beyond words, so I'll save you the pretentious music critique (you can read it on my Pitchfork review tho), and state that this is a piece of art, despite the obvious dud. 5/5

Final score
RP: -1.75
Flow: 5
EP Score: ((4.75 + 5 + 2.5 + 4.75) * 4) / 4 = 17 (out of 20)
Total: RP + Flow + EP score = -1.75 + 5 + 17 = 20.25


1

scar: The Grand Conjuration
Dream Theatre - Faythe Needs Glasses
Melodies are pretty catchy and memorable, and the sense of melancholy permeating the song is up my alley. 5/5

Opeth - Angela's Got Your Back
Synthpop with much emphasis on the pop, meaning pretty catchy melodies, but lame lyrics, mostly the chorus' ones. Those riffs make that forgivable tho. 5/5

Opeth - The Grand Conjuration
Wow, didn't know they were so diverse! Definitely intrigued you sent me this since I've been meaning to give this album another chance for a while. It starts pretty cool with those badass riffs, nice. However, it feels pretty one dimensional in terms of structure, with not much variance throughout it, sticking to a same mood and melodies. 2/5

Dream Theatre - The Hovering Souvenir
Some of the mos inventive electronic music I've heard in a long time, real good stuff when it bleeps the blop, but somehow I get the feeling this is more of an interlude in an album or more fitting as a soundtrack rather than on its own, since I find myself enjoying it, but not being particularly amazed by anything in particular. 5/5

Flow
I can't believe you already sent this EP in another roulette and didn't get the crown! This one has changed my life - made me lose weight, cured me from cancer, got my degree, and I've been told all my FB likes turned into rains in Africa - bless them! And turned me into a vegan.  5/5

Final score
RP: √-1
Flow: 5
EP Score: ((5 + 5 + 2 + 5) * 4) / 4 = 17 (out of 20)
Total: RP + Flow + EP score = √-1 + 5 + 17 = 420

Nekov: Soft Electronic EP
Trentemoller - Evil Dub (Original Mix)
I like the pretty minimalist style here, reminds me a bit of Ricardo Villalobos' Alcachofa, but less repetitive. I love the synths that pop occasionally, and the inclusion of that bass/guitar was unexpected, but quite fitting, giving the song some sort of progression. The vibe here is soothing and ambient-ish, carefully produced, and being just enough engaging to be above typical background music. It gets a little repetitive tho, but I like this style. So yeah, a simple song, and an effective one without much more to it. I've had this album on my list for quite some time so I'm glad I'll finally have a chance to give it a listen. +3.5/5

Pantha Du Prince - Lions Love
The noisy beginning is quite surprising, because it's unexpected considering the calm nature of the previous track. But it's still pretty atmospheric and soothing, with many wonderful synths and simple beats, and the very interesting background vocals. Has quite a bit of emotion and melody, which is always welcomed on electronic music. However, it feels pretty one dimensional in terms of structure, with not much variance throughout it, sticking to a same mood and melodies  I didn't mind that in Evil Dub but here it feels kind of... not grating, just not very interesting. Maybe it's more enjoyable in the album's context? But despite that, it's a pretty nice track. 3.5/5

Telefon Tel Aviv - Your Mouth
Synthpop? Oh boy. I definitely want to get into more of it since I fell in love with Hotline Miami and its bombastic soundtrack, so I'm glad I got plenty of those kind of tracks on this round. To start things off, I'm quite surprised at how layered this song is, with these pretty inventive beats along with layers of vocals and synths, there are always many things going on - it sadly is a bit too compressed. It's got plenty of 80s sounds, but the electronic feel written in a way that's closer to IDM than synthpop, so that makes it pretty interesting. Melodies are pretty catchy and memorable, and the sense of melancholy permeating the song is up my alley.

At first I was kind of underwhelmed, but I've really been digging this more and more, even relistening to it after making this writeup to make sure I got it right. One of my favorites of the round. +4/5

Telefon Tel Aviv - You Are the Worst Thing in the World
I swear the beginning of this song reminds of a certain Ulver track I can't point out right now, but luckily from there things go in a different way. I really like these synths, the excellent production, and the stronger feelings on this track. Lyrics are uuhhh okay I guess. The instrumental sections are pretty good, with all of the sample play. Very good chorus and melodies overall.

It may be a little repetitive or not as varied as Your Mouth, but this song's strengths are quite remarkable. +4/5

Telefon Tel Aviv - Helen of Troy
Fairly upbeat track after the pretty melancholic ones before, but probably my least favorite out of the bunch from this artist. It's got that excellent production and layered vocals and synths are great like usual. However, this feels pretty short, with barely any instrumental sections or more developed ideas, so it's mostly a pretty straightforward song. Catchy and quite enjoyable, yes, but feels less inventive than the other two. 3.5/5

Flow
Well, the flow here is kind of a mess - first track is pretty minimalist, second opens with noisy synths but it's fairly soft, which leads well into the Your Mouth. However, the beginning of You're the Worst... feels disjointed, like maybe it flows from another track in the album. And Helen of Troy breaks with the mood the previous two songs had built. I think mixing up the tracklist would have helped - on my first several listens, I accidentally had them in a different order, almost reversed, and the TTA songs were in the order in which they appeared on the album, and the EP arranged in that way felt a little better than this one :lol. But I know you didn't have much time to put together this thing, so it could have been worse. 3/5

Final score
RP: 1.75
Flow: 3
EP Score: ((3.75 + 3.5 + 4.25 + 4.25 + 3.5) * 4) / 5 = 15.4 (out of 20)
Total: RP + Flow + EP score = 1.75 + 3 + 15.4 = 20.15

At first I didn't care much about your EP, but these tracks kept growing and growing on me with each listen. I'm very glad you and the rest of the top 3 players went with a more electronic approach, as it paid off very well. Sadly, it was a very tight competition, leaving you 0.17 points shy of the crown. So you get a gold star (https://i.imgur.com/KUyp8Oq.png). Thanks for playing! Am already checking out some of the things you've sent me, like that Leech album - good stuff  :metal .

1
(https://i.imgur.com/1kwOtAM.png) Bolsters: NineteenEightyFour (https://i.imgur.com/1kwOtAM.png)
The Midnight - Nighthawks
This is a pretty chill track, with wonderful synths and neat vocoder vocals, with melodies that remind me a bit of Daft Punk but also of, well, the 80s. It's got a great production too. I find I don't have much to say about it, other than the ending is quite abrupt since this likely flows into the next track in the album. Other than that, it's a very solid and interesting way to begin your EP. 4/5

Gunship - Fly For Your Life
Yeah I've definitely seen this album around quite a lot but never got around it for some reason. Now, I'm not surprised to hear this sounds exactly like its cover :lol . Synthpop with much emphasis on the pop, meaning pretty catchy melodies, but lame lyrics, mostly the chorus' ones. It also becomes fairly repetitive towards the end, and the chorus ain't even that great, the male/female duo being just ok. But it's got some very cool synths and beats, so props for that. +3/5

The Midnight - Nocturnal
I love how this track begins, with subtle beats and synths until the actual beats drop. From there, I like how the song slowly incorporates new sounds while occasionally having a vocoder saying "Nocturnal". Around min 3 this becomes pure synth bliss - really, these are some excellent patches and the playing in general is pretty creative. Probably the most atmospheric track on your EP, and certainly an interesting shift from the Gunship song. It's a track that can be both enjoyed as background music as well as relaxing and following these great melodies. Solid songwriting, yup. +4/5

Scandroid - Atom & E.E.V.
Cools synths and beats, AND sax? Hell yeah. I mean, it only appears here and there, but it sounds so good it's a shame it's not more integrated into the music in general, not just the chill parts. When there's no sax there are these very cool melodies and synths that somehow remind me of 0edit's Neotokyo (amazing album btw), lots of energy here. But yeah, it's the sax that got this from a 4 to  a +4/5.

Scandroid - Datastream
Oh, now to a track with vocals, nice. Which reminds me of Celldweller quite a lot, and the whole song in general, like if he had gone full synthwave... which is actually what happened, huh :lol. Very cool riffs and synths, quite catchy melodies. Lyrics are kinda dumb. Great production as usual. I feel many of his songs aren't very good for the most part so this was quite pleasant and fun to listen to, surprisingly. +4/5

Gunship - Tech Noir
Oh yes, the intro is great with the spoken word and the dark synths, both fitting quite well and setting the mood. Which isn't as dark as I'd have expected once the beats pop in. Sure, it's pretty melancholic but far from the apocalyptic vibe I was expecting. Well, ignoring that, I prefer this Gunship track better, probably because it's not as repetitive, and the songwriting's more varied and creative. However, I find the melodies kinda lacking, not being really that memorable, mostly on the chorus. Synths are on point tho. +3.5/5

Scandroid - On The Face of The Deep
Yeah this has got a great buildup at the beginning, leading to a pretty interesting break, with menacing synths and triggered drums. It's.. curious ending for the EP, but somehow I get the feeling this is more of an interlude in an album or more fitting as a soundtrack rather than on its own, since I find myself enjoying it, but not being particularly amazed by anything in particular. But it's still quite enjoyable, yup. 3.5/5

Flow
For the most part, you really nailed it keeping a style and sound quite consistent throughout the whole thing. However, I think there are little unbalances, like two instrumental tracks followed by three fairly catchy songs then another instrumental that felt more fitting as an interlude than as ending. But they are mostly minor issues really. Great job. 4/5

Final score
RP: 0.75
Flow: 4
EP Score: ((4 + 3.25 + 4.25 + 4.25 + 4.25 + 3.75 + 3.5) * 4 / 7) = 15.57 (out of 20)
Total: RP + Flow + EP score = 0.75 + 4 + 15.57 = 20.32

Your EP was my early favorite from the first listen, but as I started digging into the others, when it came to adding the scores, I was worried you'd end up in second or third place. And with such small margin, it shows you and the other top 3 guys sent some very good stuff indeed. Thanks for playing! It was a blast to have you, and it's funny I ended up last in your roulette while you get the crown here. So...

Again, thanks for playing everyone, and special thanks for bearing with me throughout this thing - took a little longer than what I had expected, and I know I can be a little frustrating to deal with :blush. I had a blast, and now I've got lots of music to check out (some of which I've already done while hosting this), from every single player, even from some that got cut in the elimination round. I'll try make little writeups for each of my favorites as I listen to them, and next week I'll try put together a 'best of roulette' compilation or something.
