Title: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Jingle & Kat Bonus Round...spoiler...Jingle wins)
Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on September 28, 2018, 02:20:18 PM
:metardica: Welcome to my first Album Roulette. (second roulette overall) :metardica:

This will be interesting and there will be a lot of music to listen to. So, let’s get to this.

:getoffmylawn: Rules:

1.   Open to anyone. I will be accepting as many people as want to sign up, but there will be a Prelim Round. There will be a few who have immunity in the Prelim round, you will find this info next to your names in the participants list.
2.   10 Rounds
3.   Albums rated on a 1-10 scale. And I will use the full scale. If your submission really sucks, you may find yourself getting somewhere in the 1-4 range. I may use quarter/half points if necessary.
4.   Submissions – Please PM submissions. I would very much prefer if albums that are submitted are available on Google play music (since I have a subscription to that and use it the most) or files
      (320kbps mp3 or FLAC). I will also accept Spotify or YouTube links as a last resort, but this is not preferred, and I may just conjure up those albums sent by those mediums another way... I
      listen to most of my music while I am driving for work through Google play music and would prefer to put all submissions in a playlist on my Google Music App.
5.   There may or may not be elimination rounds this time. Haven’t decided and it may depend on how good the albums are.
6.   Artists scoring at least a 7/10 will be banned for the rest of the roulette
7.   Up to 2 people can send the same artist in any given round. Has to be different albums, for obvious reasons (first come first serve)
8.   When sending an album please let me know if there is a specific version I should be listening to (e.g. Live, demo, alternate take, remixed, remastered, etc. etc.)
9.   I reserve the right to reject any submission as I’m sure I have forgotten something that should be on my banned list. Therefore, my banned list may change. Be aware of that. I tried to make it as
      thorough as possible, but things get missed.
10. …..
11. Profit?
12.   Have fun
13. Everyone can send up to 1 double album (up to 140 minutes) for the roulette (only in rounds 2-4 & 6-8). The Concept album round doesn't count towards this and vice-versa.
Alternate Rule 6 (Parama Style). I reserve the right to immediately cut someone if I find that an album is so bad that I can’t finish it.
If you have any questions on the rules or need any clarification or if I just plain forgot something, don’t hesitate to ask or let me know.

Participants: (so far)
1. Parama - :deadhorse: Prelim immunity for winning my first roulette
2. Kattelox - Prelim immunity for having the best song outside the EP and Album rounds in my first roulette
3. Sacul
4. Stadler
5. Jingle.boy :jingleboy:
6. TAC - :TAC: Prelim immunity for having the best album in the album round (besides Evermind who said he is sitting this one out) in my first roulette
7. Ariich :ariich:
8. Elite
9. Shadow Ninja 2.0 :ninja:
10. Lethean
11. Romdrums
12. Indiscipline
13. LordCost
14. Evermind - Immunity, for reasons.......subsequently rage quit, for reasons. :hefdaddy

:metal Music Tastes:

        First and foremost, my favorite band is and always will be Rush. Having said that, my tastes range pretty much the full gamut of music. I’m mostly into Prog and Metal or some mixture of the two and all their various sub-genre’s (black, death, tech, doom, thrash, etc.). I also really like a lot of Alternative Rock, Electronic music, Classic Rock, Ambient, Post-rock, Indie Rock, Classical, Dream Pop, Synth Pop, Jazz, Blues, Downtempo, Funk, Folk, and the list goes on and on. Mostly what I don’t like is Country music, especially Modern Country (although some older classic Country I’m OK with) and about 99.9% of Radio Pop (Top 40 stuff). Basically, you take your life in to your own hands if you decide to send me Country or Radio Pop. A lot of Hip-Hop is hit or miss with me, but I do enjoy a lot of it (mostly a lot old school and more of the underground and experimental leaning hip hop), just be careful if you go down that route. I also recommend you check out my last.fm profile to get a better idea of what I have been in to recently, it’s linked in my sig.

       Some things I have been looking for: Still looking for things similar to Moonsorrow (Verisakeet is my favorite of theirs), Havukruunu or Finsterforst, but I’ve kind of come to terms with the fact that there really isn’t much like them. Folky atmospheric metal similar to Agalloch (again they were pretty much one of a kind). Bands with really slick guitar work similar to Dire Straits, Dave Matthews Band, or John Butler. Prog metal that isn’t all about being super technical all the time. You may be at a disadvantage if you try to find something that fits these because I am looking for very specific things.

:justjen The Rounds
No themed rounds per se this time, but there will be a couple of rounds with specific rules….
There may or may not be cut off points like my last roulette, but how many I will be cutting will be dependent on how many people sign up. Plus, I need an even amount of people for the final round. I may not cut anyone depending on how good the albums are that are sent to me.

Round 1 – Prelim round (60 minute limit)
Rounds 2-4 - Open (80 minute limit)
Round 5 – EP Round (you know the drill here)

Potential Cut-off Point

Round 6-8 – Open (80 minute limit)
Round 9 – Greatest Hits

Potential Cut-off Point

Final Round – Concept Album

EP round rules
- Minimum of 3 songs
- Minimum of 20 minutes. Maximum of 40 minutes
- It is an open round, so no theme, but I would recommend coming up with some kind of theme (lyrical content, style, genre, etc.) for your EP, this could help with flow/cohesiveness
- The EP must contain at least 3 different artists and can not contain more that 2 songs per artist
- each EP will be scored on a 20 point scale
- flow/cohesiveness will be taken in to account and can net you up to an additional 5 points
- The EP containing my favorite song will get 1 additional point
- There will be an additional half point for creativeness of your EP's title

Greatest Hits round rules
- 1 band/artist with at least 3 albums
- Minimum of 40 minutes. Maximum of 80 minutes
- Must use at least 1 song from 3 different albums
- each greatest hits album will be scored on a 20 point scale
- flow is not going to be taken in to account, but I don’t want any awkward cuts or songs that just end abruptly because they are supposed to flow in to another. Nothing jarring. I may take away points if you do this.
- The Album containing my favorite song will get 1 additional point
- Come up with a title for your greatest hits compilation. There will be an additional point for the best title

Concept album round rules
- Minimum 4 songs
- Minimum 50 minutes. Maximum 140 minutes
- Come up with a conceptual story, preferably bound together (as best as you can) lyrically.
- Must contain at least 4 different artists, with no more than 3 songs per artist. (Intro, Interlude, Segue, Outro songs do not count towards this)
- Each album will be scored on a 20 point scale
- Flow will be highly valued as it can net you up to 10 additional points
- Album title will also be important, the best title will get 1 bonus point
- My favorite song will also get you 1 bonus point

Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Open for all!)
Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on September 28, 2018, 02:20:30 PM
The banned list is going to work a little differently this time. Hold on to your socks…Below you will find a complete list of bands that are completely banned. I decided to make bands that I have only rated one album on RYM available to send (except for the album that is rated). Disclaimer: If a band is on the banned list, it doesn't matter how many of their albums I've rated on RYM. The band is completely banned. I don’t have a list of those bands, nor do I want to make one, for a couple of reasons. First, the list would be way too long (the banned list is long enough as it is). Second, I don’t want people abusing this and just looking for bands I have rated highly, but only 1 album. Then again it would be easy enough for a diligent person to figure out which ones they are and I really can’t stop you…..or can I…..MWAHAHAHAAAA. To make it a little more interesting, if someone sends me such an album and it rates 8/10 or higher you will get an extra half a point. If it rates less that 8/10 you will lose 1 whole point (risk/reward factor). My RYM page is linked below

If I recall correctly I scored super high last roulette with both corny symphonic power metal and a chill downtempo electronic track, so I agree, the love for a variety of music is dope. Really looking forward to the challenge this time with full albums.

Works for me. Like I said in the rules, I can usually find the music that's sent other ways.

Also, it's good to have some new faces in here with Stadler, Ariich, and Shadow Ninja.

Also also, Classic rock is not outright banned this time. I looked through my extensive record/cd collection and put the ones that I know really well in the banned list. So you all are free to send some classic rock if you are especially confident in it.

Granted I'm only going to allow so much cheating. For instance someone tried to send a band that is on the banned list. Another tried to send an album well over 60 minutes for the prelim round. That kind of cheating is a little too blatant.  :)

Observation / Question - your banned list has a lot missing that were on your last roulette.  Are those that were banned last time but not this time fair game?
Request - can you (if you have it readily / easily available) list the bands you received in your last roulette (unless you already put them all on the banned list of course).  I just don't want to inadvertently send you something that someone else sent earlier this year.

To answer your question, I removed a bunch of artists from the banned list that I had only rated/heard 1 album and am not familiar with the rest of their albums. Those artists are fair game, but you will have to be a little diligent in checking my RYM page to see which those are. You will have to work for that bonus point.

As far as bands from my previous roulette's, I just noticed I forgot to add in the ones I want to ban. Basically any band that rated 8 or higher is off limits. I will type those up in the third post in a bit.

How many people get through the prelim round?
This is yet to be determined. I'm going to base it off of how good the albums are. So potentially everyone could make it through.

1. the appeal of EP rounds is the full creative control, which i lose with this concept
2. dude you realize this is round 10 of your second roulette this year, after a full 8 rounds of single-artist submissions as well as an EP round - i'm gonna be totally out of music by like, round 6 or 7  :lol

i already am fairly certain i have nothing (well, nothing you'd like) for the greatest hits round because i am not the type of person to delve deep into artists' catalogues unless they're like, really consistently & i like them a lot

the bands off the top of my head that I've done this for are all banned  :lol

we'll see when we get there. i have like, literally only about 5 albums i really want to send you so hopefully i get cut after round 5

edit: also i wanna clarify, i don't know if the concept itself is bad on its own, but from where i stand i wouldn't want to participate in it myself, personally
Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Open for all! Looking for new blood...)
Post by: jingle.boy on September 30, 2018, 05:46:13 AM
I'm with Parama... the concept for that final round is a little too convoluted.  The point of roulettes is to share music we love with others we think might like it too - this idea takes it a little beyond those boundaries imo.  Trying to find songs with lyrical similarities in our libraries that can be strung together to form a concept album - while teamed with someone else's library - is a little much.  It's already challenging enough to come up with a creative *theme* for an EP.

Plus, as Parama said, you will also have added another 100+ artists to the banned list (which is already at about 750) from everyone's submissions, so the inventory for each of us to draw upon to make this concept album will be rather depleted.  I'm already having to think of what bands *not* to use in the first few rounds so that I can have them possibly available to use as the EP and/or Greatest Hits round.

IMO, you're taking things a little off the charts in how creative you're trying to make your themes.

actually i got it. the first disc of my collaborative concept will be a story about some guy dying made by my partner. disc two will be an artistic interpretation of what happens after death, and it will be a collection of silent tracks of varying lengths, including, of course, john cage

i think i can make that work  :tup

OK, the more I thought about it the less I like the Collaborative aspect of the concept album round. I'm dropping the teamwork part, but the concept album round stays as a grand finale. Maybe I'll just drop the EP round to make it a little easier finding artists to send. Or I could take a page out of 425's roulette book and only ban artists that score 7 or higher for the duration of the roulette.

Thoughts?

Post by: Cyril on September 30, 2018, 12:51:21 PM
That solves half the problem to be sure

I want to make an EP though, don't drop the EP round

Maybe I'll make my concept "complete garbage trash" so I don't have to try  :corn
Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Open for all! Looking for new blood...)
Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on September 30, 2018, 12:59:25 PM
OK, so the collaborative part is gone. Also I changed the rule for banning artists used during the roulette to only artists scoring 7/10 or higher. I will keep a list updated in the third post.

Great!

When do we start sending? Let's see if I can make it further than the cut-off point this time. I remember failing quite badly, until I sent you the Vanaheim song (but it was already too late by then).
Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Open for all! Looking for new blood...)
Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on September 30, 2018, 03:49:41 PM
You can send now. I've already got 10 submissions. The prelim round won't start in full though until both Jingle's and Ariich's roulettes are finished.
Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Open for all! Looking for new blood...)

Favorite Band -
Hmm this question sucks because I dunno how to answer it. East of the Wall 'cause they made my all-time favorite album? But I'm not huge on any of their others. The Hirsch Effekt is probably my overall favorite at the moment but historically speaking Oceansize and Pain of Salvation are both consistently good and pretty important for me.

Favorite Color -
Purple! I'm still using the DTF apollo theme, lol

Favorite Guitarist -
Uhh Petrucci I guess, I don't pay a ton of attention to individual guitarists in bands

Favorite TV Show/Movie -
I barely watch TV & the only thing I've been keeping up with lately is Bojack Horseman. 12 Angry Men is definitely my favorite movie though.

Favorite Drummer -
I would've said Danny Walker until earlier this year. Let's default to Seth Rheam for now.

Favorite Emulsifier -
Being too lazy to go to google

Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee -
Don't care

Total Number/Guesstimate of Albums you own Physical copies of -
450ish? I have been keeping a record of everything I get since 2015 and that's probably at least 300 by itself & I already had plenty before that so

Favorite Video Game -
I did a top games list a while back (https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=47383.500) and while there would be some updates if I did it now I've had no reason to change my #1

Chuck Norris or John Petrucci -
See my answer for favorite guitarist

Most Disliked Band -
Merzbow is probably not the worst harsh noise """musician""" out there but they're definitely the most mainstream and thus the one I directly my distaste for the entire genre at

Bungee Jumping or Sky Diving -
No

Favorite Female Vocalist -
Lorde

Favorite Male Vocalist -
Daniel Gildenlow

What Instruments to you play?
Used to play viola (still have it), still sometimes play electric guitar & drums but not as much as I should be

Sing in the Shower?

Question: For albums that appear in your RYM collection (due to CD or digital ownership) but aren't rated, are they still treated as "rated" for the purposes of the banned list?

I.e. if a band isn't in the banned list, and you haven't rated their albums on RYM but they are in your collection, they're still banned.

Right?

Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on October 03, 2018, 12:15:07 PM
So just to clarify. Anything that I own but have not rated is not banned, unless the band is on the banned list in the 2nd post. Chances are I either heard the album once a long time ago or have not listened to it yet.

I have a bad habit buying albums, books, and video games just because they are on sale and then never getting around to them.

Post by: Elite on October 03, 2018, 12:57:10 PM
I didn't respond to this thing yet, so I'll do that.

Favorite Band -
I don't think I have something like a 'favourite band', because I tend to listen to a lot of different music at the same time and my tastes switch around (I tend to enjoy heavy music more in the winter, and laid-back stuff in the summer, though this isn't set in stone). I have no idea what my current favourite artists would be, but my statistics of bands I've seen live would say it's Leprous and Haken. Other favourites, or have-been-favourites in the past include Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, Agent Fresco, Ulver and Radiohead. Check my latest top 50 for more, I guess.

Favorite Color -
Blue.. uhh, I mean red.

Favorite Guitarist -
History would suggest John Petrucci, although I love Guthrie Govan's work as well.

Favorite TV Show/Movie -
I don't really care for TV. The only shows I've watched in full are Lost and Breaking Bad (not counting Better Call Saul which is still going on). My favourite film is without a doubt Apocalypse Now, with Alien and The Deer Hunter coming behind.

Favorite Drummer -
I find Baard Kolstad to be amazing to watch.

Favorite Emulsifier -
Your mom.

Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee -
I can't recall having ever seen a film any of these two plays in, so neither.

Total Number/Guesstimate of Albums you own Physical copies of -
450, not counting doubles.

Favorite Video Game -
Tough one, though in overall play-time I bet it would be either Halo 2 or Halo 3, but the hours I logged in there are mostly multiplayer. Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for being the most immersive game I've played, I guess that one would be my favourite. Nowadays I rarely play video-games, and when I do, it's usually old stuff I have played before. Lately (like 3 months ago) I've been on an Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind kick.

Chuck Norris or John Petrucci -
See the favourite guitarist question, combine that with the answer to Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan and it should be pretty clear. Other than the memes, I have no idea who this guy is.

Most Disliked Band -
None?

Bungee Jumping or Sky Diving -
If I had to choose, Sky Diving, but I'm not doing any. Never.

Favorite Female Vocalist -
The girl singing in Oceans of Slumber.

Favorite Male Vocalist -
I don't know.

What instruments do you play?
Mainly guitar (see my band), but also saxophone, bass guitar, piano and drums. I can sing well enough to be a backing vocalist if needed (or drowned out by the sound of 30 other singers in a choir).

Sing in the Shower?
Yes, preferably stupid music.

Pee in the Shower?
Yes.

Average Air Speed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow -

Definitely sad.

By the way, in order to get a head start, I've listened through all the albums once (with the exception of Ariich's) and I will say there are 3 albums that I can't wait to come back to and give more listens. Then there were a couple that I'm not too sure about...

I won't be doing any more listening until Ariich gets a chance to send. Again, no hurry.

Do you want to try using my spreadsheet instead? It's in a google spreadsheet. I found it pretty easy to use on the whole, the main limitation was where people guessed individual words but not a whole artist/album name. But otherwise it works rather well IMO. I can send a link.

Evermind sent The Derek Trucks Band

Who the fuck are these guys? :lol That's literally the first time I've heard of them.

Butch Trucks was (until his death) one of the co-drummers in the Allman Brothers Band.  His son Derek is a rather talented guitar player, that in fact replaced Dickie Betts in the Allmans at the end of their career, and formed the "Derek Trucks Band" as a side gig (well, now its his full time gig).   

I have to say:  I'm a big Allman's fan, preferring the Warren Haynes years and the original Duane years best.  I'm not the hugest Dickie Betts fan, and so I don't like the Betts-only and Betts-Toler years much, and except for Gov't Mule (Haynes side gig) I don't go in for many of the side bands (Great Southern, etc.).     The DTB is possibly an exception; I'm not familiar with most of their stuff, but from what I have heard, he's the real deal and a lot closer to Duane than anyone else that has played with the Allmans since his death.

I'm actually genuinely excited to check out some of the albums you thought were too risky. Although one of the ten I know already because you sent it to me in my last roulette. :P

i mentioned an 11th album in one of the writeups, that can be the new 10th one then  :corn

edit: oh yeah i did send julia holter in your last roulette, for the "fun" round
i should've sent "fun." for the "fun" round tbh, that was a missed opportunity right there

Yeah, if you knew fun. back then, then that was a pretty poor decision. I mean I liked the Holter album but didn't love it, and I wouldn't have really called it fun either.

Stabs in the dark.

Parama sent Mithrash
Evermind sent The Derek Trucks Band
ariich sent Venetian Snares
romdrums sent Trail of Murder
Indiscipline sent whatever the unsolved artist is
1/5 ain't bad... :biggrin:

?: _l_e ___d - E____es
Beyond the Bridge - The Old Man and the Spirit sent by Evermind
So close :lol

Turns out when I put Elite's name in the hangmanen generator it doesn't recognize it, so it doesn't fill it out. Same with Shadow Ninja for some reason.
Do you want to try using my spreadsheet instead? It's in a google spreadsheet. I found it pretty easy to use on the whole, the main limitation was where people guessed individual words but not a whole artist/album name. But otherwise it works rather well IMO. I can send a link.
PM me a link and I'll give it a shot.  :tup

Shadow Ninja: The Tallest Man on Earth - Shallow Grave
TAC: Hyperomm - From Nothing to Eternity
?: Venetian Snares - __ss_ _s_lla_ alatt s__letett
?: _l_e ___d - E____es
Sacul: Snarky Puppy - We Like It Here
Parama: Mithras - On Strange Loops
Stadler: Band of Horses - Why Are You OK

Don't worry, I'll fix the hangmanenator 2000 before i begin my next roulette :neverusethis:. And with fix I mean completely rewrite it in a different language that's actually portable and you can execute on your pc wihout installing crap :lol. And also support EP rounds, save who guessed what, has turns and limits on guessed, etc.

Some first impressions after 1 listen.

- I like this for the most part, but some of the more <insert genre> parts kind of fall flat for me.
- Serious <insert artist here> vibes here, which isn't exactly a good thing. The production and vocals are fairly bad in places.
- This is a lot to take in, but there's a lot to like here.
- This band takes a lot of inspiration from the original <insert genre here> bands, but adds their own twists and flair.
- This was a super fun listen, but it loses a little steam near the end.
- Most songs here got a HOLY CRAP reaction from me. A couple got a meh..... Needs more listens to digest in full.
- That's a sweet guitar tone. Impressive.
- Pretty much what I expected from this band
- Some impressive stuff, gets a little samey in the second half though.
- This is going to take more listens to unravel fully
- Has most of the elements of <insert genre here> that make it enjoyable
- Not sure how to classify this or how to feel about it. Needs more listens for sure.
- Reminds me at times of <insert band here> and <insert band here> if they merged and then parodied themselves with modern production and styles.
- Wasn't sure what to expect here, but it got better and better as the album went on. Good mix of moods.

I've got a few listens in on all albums now. I would like to get 1 or 2 more in and hopefully start posting results on Friday. I will probably spread the results out over Friday/Saturday. I'm confident in the the top and bottom albums, so those results will be posted last  :biggrin:

And remember how I said there will be eliminations this round.......well there is still going to be, but probably only 1, possibly up to 3 (depending on how further listens go with those albums). I was originally going to narrow it down to 10 participants going forward, but the rest of the albums were so good that I couldn't bear to eliminate people who sent awesome albums.

Are you ready? :corn :corn :corn :corn :corn :corn :corn :corn ????

PRELIM ROUND RESULTS part 1!

Trail of Murder - Shades of Art
Evermind
Heavy Metal
Sweden

                                                                       
First Impression - Reminds me at times of WASP and Def Leppard if they merged and then parodied themselves with modern production and styles.

So let me try to explain my first impression, because by now I'm sure all of you (especially Evermind) are thinking "WHAT ARE YOU ON ABOUT?!?!" So, growing up in the late 80's/early 90's I listened to a lot of the early heavy metal bands like the 2 aforementioned here (WASP and Def Leppard (and really I only mean Def Leppards first 2 albums)) because that's what my parents were listening to a lot (along with country music, which I really can't explain, how do you go from listening to something like WASP to listening to Brooks & Dunn and enjoy both equally, whatever, I digress). I also heard lots of Scorpions, early Journey, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, etc, but that's beside the point. My point is there are lots of little things here that remind me of those early 80's metal bands (especially WASP) and Def Leppard (which I know is debatable if their early albums were metal). There are certain songs where the vocals remind me of Blackie Lawless. Something in the cadence or phrasing, it's hard to explain. Then there's the gang vocal choruses all over the album that really remind me of Def Leppard, along with a lot of the guitar riffs (maybe in the way they let some of the riffs ring out) and solos. I was also thinking it sounded a bit like Tad Morose, but then I realized that the vocalist here (Urban Breed) was also the vocalist in Tad Morose for 10 years. So that at least makes some sense, even it the WASP and Def Leppard comparisons don't.

For the most part the album is very mid tempo and doesn't really deviate from that and for the most part it works through super strong song writing, excellent vocals that make you want to sing along, and awesome riffs and solos. The only real weak songs here would be Your Silence and My Heart Still Cries. The rest are all solid to awesome, head bang worthy tunes.  :metal The only reason it's not getting a higher score is because there could have been a little more variety and tempo changes throughout. Otherwise, great submission here.

Favorite songs - Shades of Art, Mab
Least favorite - Your Silence, My Heart Still Cries

8.2/10


Dreamgrave - Presentiment
Elite

Progressive Death Metal
Hungary

First Impression - Wasn't sure what to expect here, but it got better and better as the album went on. Good mix of moods.

I was quite intrigued by how you described the band in the PM you sent me originally. You said they had the "right amounts of heavy, intense and beautiful at the same time." I think this describes them pretty well for the most part. These guys are definitely doing their own thing, but drawing from a lot of inspiration from other bands. There are times that remind me of Between the Buried and Me, Persefone, Wilderun, Opeth, and even bits that are similar to the band Lor that TAC sent in my last roulette.

I like the intensity that they use throughout, mostly because it's woven in nicely with bits of more melodic and lighter passages. The female vocals interspersed really help to balance out the album for the most part. This is all presented well on the opening two tracks, Ethereal Eternity with flows perfectly in to Black Spiral. I also like the little bits of orchestral instruments that are strewn about, they give the heavier parts a quality of beauty that blends nicely. It gives it a bit of a gothic/doomy vibe at occasionally. The keyboards and guitar solos makes sure you know that this is a prog metal album and for the most part they don't just feel like they are tacked on for the sake of have technical instrumentation. Their use in the song Memento Mori is pretty slick, which then goes in to a nice atmospheric piano bit with accompanying bass. It all flows well. It doesn't seem stitched together.

Where it starts to fall apart a bit is starting with Presentiment Part II they seem to have run out of ideas and the last three tracks, especially the last track, just kind of drag on way too long without much going on. Also, the harsh vocals used aren't the best or most diverse, but neither do they detract from the awesome music on display. Overall it's a pretty good album and a really good first album for this band. They are a band to watch in the future. :tup

Favorite tracks - Black Spiral, Memento Mori
Least favorite - It's Ubiquitous, Presentiment Pt 2

7.8/10


Voyager - V
Lethean

Progressive Metal
Australia

(bonus point band)
                                                                                                       
First Impression - I like this for the most part, but some of the more Djenty parts kind of fall flat for me.

This is one of the albums with a potential bonus point. I had previously only heard and rated Voyager's newest album, Ghost Mile. I gave that one a 7.6/10 rounded up to an 8. So how did you do? Time to get excited......?....

This album starts out with one of my favorite songs of the round, Hyperventilating. It's the perfect blend of heavy prog metal, with great melodies, cool sing-a-long chorus, with good vocals and neat guitar riffs and solos. The rest of the album never quite hit me the same way as that song did. After repeated listens I was able to appreciate most of the other songs for what they are, but I always came back to that first song and loved it. The closest song to it in terms of quality would be The Morning Light, which has a very epic feel to it. I really love the almost too cheesy synths with the 80's synth drum sound in the intro. The guitar solo in this song reminds me of something, but I just cant finger out what it is. Orpheus is another good song with more of the almost too cheesy synths, which then combine in to this super cool lead run with the guitars that remind me of the band Darkest Hour's lead guitars in some of their songs.

On the other side of the coin, I do take issue with the harsh vocals that show up occasionally. To me, they don't belong and detract more than anything. The aforementioned Orpheus and The Morning Light, would both rival Hyperventilating for favorite song if it weren't for the harsh vocals throwing off the groove and just sounding out of place to me. There are also the djenty parts that, while admittedly few and far between, fall flat and don't really add anything. Then there's songs like Embrace the Limitless, which feels out of place on the album and has a weird pointless fadeout at the end (by the way, I hate fadeouts almost 100% of the time), and The Domination Game, which has some cools riffs, but the vocal effects used in parts make me go :huh:

So overall, you just missed out of the bonus half point when it's all said and done. So -1 for you. It really is a good album though, so don't feel too bad, you are on the right track. I hate to give you the -1, but thems the rules.... :biggrin:

Favorite Songs - Hyperventilating, The Morning Light
Least Favorite - Embrace the Limitless

7.8/10 (-1) = 6.8/10 final score


Venetian Snares - Rossz csillag alatt született
Romdrums

Breakcore
Canada


First Impression - This is a lot to take in, but there's a lot to like here.

Boy was this album a hell of a thing. Quite unlike anything else that was sent so far. After the first listen I wasn't really sure how to process it. There is so much going on (both good and bad). Your brief description of it in the PM you sent is pretty spot on. I do enjoy the blend of strings and piano with the break beats, the way it's blended is almost like it was meant to be together......most of the time. There's some cool chillwave type stuff in here too, like in Öngyilkos vasárnap. It helps keep the album diverse and interesting. There's some really cool drum patterns and drum breaks, like the ascending and descending drum breaks in Szerencsétlen. Those are really cool sounding. The sparse vocals, whether sung or spoken word, work really well for me too. I found them intriguing and helped add another layer to the music. Felbomlasztott mentőkocsi caught me a little off guard because I thought I somehow switched over to the Divinity Original Sin soundtrack. It sounds like it belongs in that game. It's a really cool track with those haunting strings played throughout. There are so many beautiful parts all over the album, but there are also parts of certain tracks that seem to only be there to see how much they can annoy and irritate you. Like a couple parts in Második galamb where it goes almost full 'washing machine having sex with a dryer' dubstep towards the end, it really ruins the song, which had a really cool first half.  Those bits drag the album down quite a bit for me. If those parts had been omitted or even toned down or made more melodic this album would be pushing a 9/10.

Favorite songs - Szerencsétlen, Felbomlasztott mentőkocsi, Hajnal
Least favorite - Második galamb (mostly because of the robot grinding)

7.7/10


So there you have Part 1, tune in tomorrow for Part 2.

By the way, everyone in this batch (Evermind, Elite, Lethean, Romdrums) is safe from elimination, so you are free to send for round 2.

Prelim Round Results part 2!

Alithia - To the Edge of Time
Kattelox

Progressive Rock
Australia


First Impression - This is going to take more listens to unravel fully

This took a long time to wrap my head around. There's a lot of different styles going in to this. I'm still not 100% sure on the rating here. I almost feel like I should be giving it a higher score, but there's a complexity to it that I feel is going to take many more listens than this roulette will allow to fully unravel it. Let me try to explain my thoughts.

The first track opens with a really cool ambient intro that gives way to a very Riverside-esque section that is open and mellow with fantastic lead guitars and light airy keyboards. This song is just so immense. Then the vocals come in and are very un-Riverside-like. They remind me of the band Klimt 1918. Actually most of the album reminds me of a more complex and progressive Klimt 1918. This track is an amazing way to start an album, showcasing everything that they are about. They go through so many different genres and make it flow perfectly; Post Rock, Ambient, Prog Rock, Indie Rock, Dream Pop, a little metal here and there. I think the one thing that really grabbed me was the drummer (I'm a drummer so why wouldn't it), they are fairly unique and add a lot of flavor to the album as a whole. They are complex when they need to be and get more relaxed and settle in to a nice backseat groove when they need to. The whole album kind of follows the mold of the first track, but with new little additions or twists. Like in Sacrifice, the spoken word/rapped? part that leads in to that distant scream is just chill inducing. These little additions to a model that works keep the album fresh all the way through without feeling like an everything but the kitchen sink kind of album. That guitar solo at the end of Tribulations Rise! Oh my! Then they even throw in a little Post Hardcore in a few places.

I think you said it was Jingle that sent this album to you in your roulette (I'm too lazy to look). If so props to him! I almost feel like giving him a bonus point for this. But then again, he decided not to send it to me, too bad for him. There wasn't anything on this album that I disliked. Maybe a couple of the time signature changes were slightly disjointed, if I'm being nit picky... This album is a real tour de force! And I'm sure it's only going to get better with time.

Favorite songs - Thirteen Revelations
Least favorite - cant really pick one......gun to head and I had to pick one? Here I Am....I guess, even though I think it bridges the 2 tracks around it quite well.

9/10


Snarky Puppy - We Like It Here
Sacul

Jazz Fusion
United States


First Impression - This was a super fun listen, but it loses a little steam near the end.

This was the second Jazzy album that was sent so far. I actually don't have a ton to say about this album. It was really just super fun to listen to. Everyone involved with this project is a very talented musician. It's fun to focus on 1 or 2 at a time and really listen to what they are doing. Everyone has something interesting going on instrumentally. Then when you add horns in to music like this it just brings it to a whole new level. The horns might be the best part of this. Or maybe the percussion. Or the bass player? AH they are all so good! Hard to decide. The fact that the album loses a bit of steam near the end (mostly just the last track) is really the only knock on it. No vocals to criticize here, like pretty much every other album I've done a write up for so far this roulette. But that might be the other knock on it. I have a hard time rating instrumental albums much higher than this....

Favorite songs - Shofukan, What About Me?
Least favorite - Lingus

8.5/10


Eagleheart - Reverse
Jingle

Power Metal
Czech Republic

                                                                       
First Impression - Has most of the elements of Power Metal that make it enjoyable

That intro track did not prepare me for what was to come, but it does flow nicely in to the first proper song with a sick double bass drum part and epic guitar riff. What a great way to start the album. It has a lot of what I'm looking for in power metal. Fantastic melodies, killer riffs, a solid rhythm section to hold it all together, and soaring vocals (in that order). Melody and awesome riffs are most important to me in Power Metal. This has both. The title track Reverse is another track that showcases all of this as well. Maybe to an even greater extent. They even do some cool vocal things throughout and these are probably the best on the whole album.

Speaking of vocals though, they are inconsistent at times and I don't particularly like the singers tone sometimes, but he is technically skilled and some of the high notes he hits are ridiculous. I mean you cant have power metal without some 'balls in a vice' high notes (ie All I Am). The occasional harsh vocals that show up were a bit surprising and similar to the Voyager album don't really fit to me. I was also surprised an album you sent had any harsh vocals at all. The fast drumming and blazing guitar solos more than make up for any tiny quibbles I have with the vocals. The other thing that's super enjoyable and keeps the album interesting is the variety of riffs used. Each song has it's own identity riff-wise, even though most songs follow a similar blueprint. Basically all the riffs here are head bang worthy. I also like that the keyboards aren't super in your face and work almost like a back drop to provide more depth to the music. The violin that showed up in Erased from Existence was a cool addition.

I really think you are hitting your stride in regards to knowing my music tastes. Maybe it will bring you a roulette win this time........who knows? I'm sure TAC would say 'don't count on it'.

Favorite Songs - Healing the Scars, Reverse
Least Favorite - If I had to pick, maybe Mind to Decipher or Endless

8.3/10


Hyperomm - From Nothing to Eternity
TAC

Melodic Death Metal
Russia


First Impression - This band takes a lot of inspiration from the original Melodic Death Metal bands, but adds their own twists and flair.

Really embracing the harsh vocals lately, eh? This is very much rooted in the early MeloDeath style, similar to early Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, and At the Gates. Basically the pioneers of Melodic Death Metal. Where this differentiates itself is in the use and deployment of keyboards. They are very out front and at times leading the charge. There's even some unison runs with the lead guitars that sound really cool. It gives the old school Melodeath a bit of a fresh perspective and life, as well as some atmosphere. The Melodeath purists would probably say it's terrible, but I really like it. It also helps that the majority of the riffs are really solid. That riff in Invictus is super heavy and brutal and just plain awesome. This song just makes you want to bang your head all the way through.

In doing research on this band (as I do all bands that are sent to me) I noticed this is all just one guy. I always find it fascinating how these guys can write, play, and record all these instruments by themselves. And this guy is younger than I am. Makes me wonder what I'm doing with my life. All I can do is play the drums.....and the bass....sort of...Anyway, guys like this are impressive.

What brought the score down is the vocals mostly. It's very much rooted in the early Melodeath sound, to a fault. This guy doesn't have the most enjoyable screams. Also the album loses a bit of steam near the end and When Rising from the Bed of Death isn't the greatest track.

Favorite Songs - A Great Hope Fell, Invictus
Least Favorite - When Rising from the Bed of Death

7.6/10


The Derek Trucks Band - The Derek Trucks Band
Indiscipline

Jazz Rock
United States


First Impression - Some impressive stuff, seems to get a little samey in the second half though.

Indiscipline, I seriously thought you were trolling me with this album when I first hit play. I was thinking, "this is your first time participating in one of my roulette's and you are trolling me in the first round with Harsh Noise? Didn't I band Merzbow?" Here's what happened. I loaded up the copy of the album that's on Google Play Music and it was just this distorted wall of noise. At first I thought maybe the band was only doing this for the first track, since it was only 35 seconds long, but then the next track was more of the same. I quickly sampled every track and the were all the same......Turns out the copy that is on Google Play Music is corrupted. I quickly sourced the album elsewhere.

The first of 3 Jazzy albums that were sent to me in this round. This is the one I enjoyed the least, but that isn't to say it's a bad album. I still enjoyed it quite a bit. Mostly the first half and then Evil Clown. The first 3 proper tracks (Mr. PC, 555 Lake, D Minor Blues) help set the tone perfectly and are all stellar tracks! 555 Lake made me wish there were more vocals throughout the album. Which was part of the issue I had with the second half of the album. I felt they weren't doing enough instrumentally towards the end to keep my interest. They could have done more to add more variety. I think once I get to Naima, I feel like I've already heard all this before earlier in the album and better.

There are some really cool Jam sections spread (there were times it reminded me of some of Dave Mathews Band live jam sections) around the album and Derek Trucks is a gifted guitarist, and he's only 17 here. I mean he's no Stevie Ray Vaughan or anything, but still good. Actually everyone on this album plays their instrument of choice very well. I really like the recurring guitar groove in Evil Clown for some reason. It's such a simple groove, but it always gets stuck in my head.

Overall this album is enjoyable to a point. It just lacks variety in the second half.

Favorite Songs - Mr. PC, 555 Lake, Evil Clown
Least Favorite - Naima, So What

7.5/10


Band of Horses - Why Are You OK
Stadler

Indie Rock
United States

(bonus point band)

First Impression - Pretty much what I expected from this band

Some random thoughts that went through my head while listening to this: Beautiful/relaxing, sounds like the Beatles, now it sounds like the Beach Boys, poppy (in a good), HEY! it's J Mascis, kind of inconsistent, mellow.

That first track is so good. I think I may be my favorite on the album, so it's only downhill from here :D . The song Hag has an awesome melody, as do most of the songs here. There is quite a bit of variety for an Indie rock band. They throw in lots of elements of Folk and country, especially in the second half of the album. I like a lot of the Beatles-esque and Beach Boy-like sounds, even though some of those songs have some annoying bits in them too. Thought it was cool they got J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr as a guest vocalist. The album ends on a somber note with Even Still. It's a pretty good low-key song.

Overall the album didn't wow me and I feel it's not quite as good as the other Band of Horses album I've heard (Cease to Begin), but there's still some strong stuff here and some songs that I will definitely revisit. The album actually started out with a much lower rating after my first couple listens. So it's definitely a grower and may get better after more listens in the future.

Favorite songs - Dull Times/The Moon, Hag
Least favorite - Whatever Whenever, Throw My Mess

7.4/10 (-1) = 6.4/10 final score

Shadow Ninja: The Tallest Man on Earth - Shallow Grave

LordCost: Cardiacs - On Land and in the Sea

- Serious <insert artist here> vibes here, which isn't exactly a good thing. The production and vocals are fairly bad in places.
- Most songs here got a HOLY CRAP reaction from me. A couple got a meh..... Needs more listens to digest in full.
- That's a sweet guitar tone. Impressive.
- Not sure how to classify this or how to feel about it. Needs more listens for sure.

guessing the top 2 and bottom 2 are what are left, just based on the impressions
based on the writeup for derek trucks, also, ariich is in the top 2  :lol
honestly i'd not be super shocked if the top 2 was me and ariich because tallest man on earth & cardiacs both seem like "not stuff puppies would like" and i base that on the fact that i don't like either of them at all myself  :P

Prelim Round Result part 3

Blue Food - Engines
Ariich

Jazz-Funk
United States


First Impression - Most songs here got a HOLY CRAP reaction from me. A couple got a meh..... Needs more listens to digest in full.

This album is slick as hell. You mentioned getting in to these guys at the same time as Thank You Scientist. I can see why. There are a lot of similarities, with the exception of Thank You Scientist being more Prog Metal and this being more Jazz-Funk. The underlying progressions and the use of horns is very similar.

I was absolutely floored when I first listened to this album. I was not expecting anything like this. Everything about this I love. The instrumentation is superb and I've always loved horns like this in my music, which is part of the reason I love Thank You Scientist and Chicago so much. There's slick guitar solos, fantastic drumming, a bass player who keeps things interesting throughout, and the vocals fit the music perfectly. These guys seem to have a lot of influences from James Brown, to Jojo Meyer, to various jazz, reggae, and metal acts. They even throw in some random blast beats. Every song is engaging and fresh, nothing seems forced or out of place. And even though I said a couple songs got a bit of a meh reaction out of me on first listen, after multiple listens everything sounds fantastic. The only knock on it is Engine of the World goes on a little too long.

Thanks for sending this, this is something that will scratch the Funk itch I have. Also enjoy taking first place right out of the gates!

Favorite Songs - Tête-À-Tête, Blizzard in a Sphere, Boogiemen
Least Favorite - Engine of the World i guess

9.5/10


Mithras - On Strange Loops
Parama

Technical Death Metal
England


First Impression - That's a sweet guitar tone. Impressive.

Heavy, dense, atmospheric. But not so heavy that it loses any dynamics. And not so dense that everything is just crushed under a wall of noise. The spacey atmosphere is very well done and really draws me in. It's very similar to what Darkspace does. I suppose this band could be considered the Death Metal version of Darkspace. What really helps with the sound is the guitar tone on the leads. It has this very open spacey tone and helps to create the atmosphere that I love. I also like how the solos are just mindless shredding. They have an emotional melodic quality to them, something that most tech death bands have a problem achieving. I like the way the music goes from a quieter clean melody and then builds and builds to an epic crushing climax or adds layer upon layer until it's crushing beauty completely surrounds you. It's like an emotional ebb and flow. Odyssey's End is a good example of this.

Even though the guitars are probably my favorite part of the instrumentation here, the drums and bass keep pace very well too. And the vocals are very unique in the tech death world. The run from Odyssey's End thru Time Never Lasts has tons of great examples of great drumming and vocal work. Like the machine gun like precision start/stop of the double bass in Howling of the Distant Spaces. The desperation in the the vocals of the same track also fit the lyrics really well. Speaking of lyrics, this album comes across as a concept album to me. The concept seems to be pretty much spelled out in the opening track, but builds to several different themes throughout the album and the lyrics are well written.

This is an incredibly well put together album. Everything about it is unique and I don't think there is another band out there that really sounds like this, especially in the Tech Death arena. The only exception that would be close is Darkspace, but that's only in the way this album uses spacey atmosphere. Plus Darkspace is Atmospheric Black Metal. Everything here is carefully constructed and I think I understand why it took them 9 years to do this album.

Favorite songs - When the Stars Align, Odyssey's End
Least favorite - there isn't really any weak songs here or ones that I don't like. So NO

9.1/10


The Tallest Man on Earth - Shallow Grave
Shadow Ninja

Contemporary Folk
Sweden

                                           
First impression - Serious Bob Dylan vibes here, which isn't exactly a good thing. The production and vocals are fairly bad in places.

After my first listen I was prepared to give this album a 4 and almost rule 6'd it out of the roulette. The Bob Dylan-isms, the bad production and the vocals are really bad in places. Something happened after I decided to give it one more chance. The actual song writing and lyrics caught my attention. Just like Bob Dylan, this guy is a good song writer and has some great lyricism and that aspect really started to grow on me. The problem is he should have stopped at just copying Dylan's song writing style and lyrics. Instead he utilizes the Dylan-esque bad singing too. To me it's not endearing, it's technically just wrong and makes me cringe. Where Do My Bluebird Fly is a good example of cringe worthy singing. Then the piss poor production is just annoying. There's a constant hissing in the background. It gets super static-y when he sings louder. And for an acoustic folk album it's weirdly brickwalled, there seems to be no dynamics. I mean the song Shallow Grave sounds like it was recorded in a bathroom with a potato for a microphone.... The production is what really kills it. I simply don't like poor production in stuff like this. There are certain genre's that should never have bad production.

Sorry for kind of ripping an album you enjoy a new one, but I have to be brutally honest here. And I will have to cut you here. Thanks for joining the roulette.

5.5/10


Cardiacs - On Land and in the Sea
LordCost

Art Punk
England


First Impression - Not sure how to classify this or how to feel about it. Needs more listens for sure.

OK, I really really tried. I think I just don't get it. The majority of the songs here either seem to try to sound like circus music or try to be as annoying as possible. I understand trying to be experimental or avant-garde, but there's a fine line between good and bad (to me) when dealing with those genre's. Diablo Swing Orchestra or maudlin of the Well is a good example of using experimental/avant-garde stuff and making it work well. They flow better. The Zolo-like super jerky rhythms and percussion here just doesn't work for me. The vocals are mostly annoying to me, as is most of the rest of the instrumentation. I feel like my 18 year old self would have been all over this, but these days I just cant enjoy stuff like this.

I somehow got through it 3 times and after that I just couldn't anymore....I know a lot of people like this album, but for the life of me I don't understand why. Sorry to have to eliminate you right out of the gate, but this just didn't work for me.  :-\

4.5/10


There you have it! I feel a little bad for having to eliminate 2 newcomers in my Roulette's right off the bat, but sometimes that just the way the cookie crumbles......

anyways i'm gonna stay in outer space for my next submission, i think, after that not so sure. i was considering sending you poly-math but you already rated 'em on RYM and way lower than they deserve, so, welp  :loser:

Dude I'm so glad you liked it so much, it's an awesome album and I thought you'd probably dig it but I honestly didn't know how much.

Although funny that Engine of the World is your least favourite, as it's one of my favourites. Ok a bit on the long side perhaps but I love the groove and the proggyness.

I didn't have much to send given your banned list and maybe the only band I really wanted to send, as I do in every recent roulette is Cardiacs, so don't worry about my elimination. I did the same in the latest Parama's roulette, sending a risky album like 666 International by Dodheimsgard, having not that much to lose.

I didn't want to send Guns for the third time and OLAITS is definitely my favourite album of them and one of my favourites of all time, but after this result I don't think an easier album would have changed much.

I was listening the album in the car some hours ago and I almost don't recognize the weirdness anymore since I've listened a lot to them and I'm used to their style, but I get that they might be not for everyone.

Have some more first impressions

- I hear Cedric Bixler-Zavala mixed with Anthony Green in the vocals.
- This dude can sing!
- While very good, the drums aren't even the highlight of the album as one would imagine.
- Vocals don't quite do it for me.
- How cute, Between the Buried and Me and Symphony X had a baby

i mean i also said earlier that i was the one who sent Akhlys
gonna go with TAC for Heavenly
romdrums for Bill Bruford
and Katt for Monica

none of this is based off the fact that I can see romdrums and Katt have both rated the albums I matched up to them on RYM, not in the slightest

Have a few more snippets

- Kind of par for the course for this genre
- Relaxing, Hypnotic, almost trance-like, heavy
- Sounds like pretty vanilla Power Metal

I will say this, there isn't anything I dislike this round, but there doesn't appear to be anything approaching a 9 this time. :corn

@jungle.book: I'm checking out that Borealis now. Definitely sounds like a Chad band so far - and I like it :biggrin: not sure if I'd call it generic so far though, but I'm so far removed from the genre that I have no idea what actual 'generic' is anymore

Post by: Cyril on October 18, 2018, 10:44:11 PM
- Biggest cock tease fadeout I've heard all year
- 1 bad song doesn't spoil the bunch. Ethereal vocals and great production
- I hear Cedric Bixler-Zavala mixed with Anthony Green in the vocals.
- This dude can sing!
- While very good, the drums aren't even the highlight of the album as one would imagine.
- Vocals don't quite do it for me.

- How cute, Between the Buried and Me and Symphony X had a baby
- Kind of par for the course for this genre
- Relaxing, Hypnotic, almost trance-like, heavy
- Sounds like pretty vanilla Power Metal
- How have I not listened to this album before?
- Some good stuff, some not so good. Has a retro 80's feel to it.

all of the snippets btw, highlighted all the ones that could possibly be mine which isn't that many tbh

Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on October 24, 2018, 07:48:30 PM
First of all I need to apologize for all the delays in posting the results for this round. A lot of the issues were out of my control, but I still feel bad for making you all wait so long. So without further ado.

Round 2 Results!!

Borealis - Purgatory
Jingle
Progressive Power Metal
Canada


First Impression - Sounds like pretty vanilla Power Metal

I really hate to do this to you, but this album just did not work for me. Perhaps vanilla Power Metal isn't the right term to describe this, but it all seems very plain to me. It just never clicked outside of the first three tracks, which I thought were pretty damn good. There was tight drumming, cool riffs (even some cool Melodeath riffing), and the vocals were working. I thought I was in for a nice ride. But it was like the band just gave up after that. It's what I like to call the Cloudscape Dilemma. They tend to have a few awesome tracks to start their albums and then it's just snoozefest after snoozefest. That's what happens here in Purgatory :neverusethis:. It also doesn't help that a lot of the songs in the middle and end have a lot of similarities to Everygrey. I was never a huge fan of Evergrey. A lot of the riffing kind of devolved in to a palm muted mess. The keyboardist sounds bored and I don't like the vocals after that 3rd track. I thought maybe I was missing something and you are probably going to say the same thing, but this just isn't my cup of tea. I hate to rate an album so low that people really like, but thems tastes for ya.

Favorite Songs - Past the Veil, The Chosen One
Least Favorite - Sacrifice, Rest My Child

6/10


John Wetton & Geoffrey Downes - Icon 3
Stadler
Progressive Rock-ish
United Kingdom


First Impression - Some good stuff, some not so good. Has a retro 80's feel to it.

I'm definitely familiar with John Wetton from his work with Asia, King Crimson, and UK. And I've familiar with Geoff Downes also being in Asia and in Yes. They definitely know how to right a catchy tune. For the most part it's and enjoyable enough album. I guess one could argue it sounds dated, considering it was made in 2009 and it sounds like it could be an 80's Asia album (I wonder why that is.... :P), but I think it's more of a retro throwback. The first track is a good opener, with good energy. Reminds me a bit of the classic rock revival that The Night Flight Orchestra is doing these days. Destiny starts off sounding like Bohemian Rhapsody, haha, especially with that first vocal of "Mama!" I thought they were going to break in to a strange Queen cover. It quickly changes and doesn't sound like it after the first 45 seconds or so. It's also a pretty good song. I'd like Green Lights and Blue Skies if it wasn't for the super cheesy vocoder vocals. This is where the problems start. It seems each song after this point has something about it that I don't particularly like. I think it mostly comes down to music taste though. I can appreciate what they are doing, but parts of this album just don't sound right. The repetitiveness in Raven is super annoying and Sex, Power and Money is just not a song that I enjoy at all. The exception is My Life is in Your Hands which is a great song from start to finish with some great progressions. It almost sounds like a Marillion song from the early 90's. Actually a lot of the guitar work here is fairly Steve Rothery like. I had to double check and see if he did some guest guitars or something (spoiler alert, he did not). The last two tracks are actually pretty OK with few issues.

I'm kind of torn whether or not I want to explore the other Icon albums. If it's more of the same like this album, I may not be too inclined to try them out. Bottom line is, it's not a bad album. It's an OK album, with a few really standout tracks. Nothing more, nothing less.

Favorite songs - Destiny, My Life is in Your Hands
Least Favorite - Raven, Sex Power and Money

7/10


Petter Carlsen - Clocks Don't Count
Ariich
Indie Rock
Norway


First Impression - I hear Cedric Bixler-Zavala mixed with Anthony Green in the vocals.

This album is a very mixed bag for me. I generally like the vocals, but at times I wish he would change it up a bit and there are times where he sounds a little too whiny, bordering on bad emo territory. It's seems to be the same even tone throughout. The album is pretty chill and low key from start to finish. I like Table for One and how it ummm......sets the table for the rest of the album :neverusethis:. Spirits in Need is kind of neat with some cool guitar lines, but the vocals aren't as strong as the first track. One of Those Days is where the unevenness starts to rear its ugly head. Built to Last picks the album back up, but that's probably because Vincent Cavanagh is doing guest vocals providing some fantastic harmonies. The rest of the album follows the same pattern of a good song followed by a not so good song. I feel like this album could have and should have been so much better. I'll probably revisit in the future outside of the roulette format to see if it sits better then.

Favorite Songs - Table For One, Built to Last

First Impression - How cute, Between the Buried and Me and Symphony X had a baby

That was then raised by Cynic. My first impression actually makes more sense by added the sentence about Cynic. I've heard a lot of people compare these guys to Dream Theater in places, which I can kind of see, but it sounds closer to Symphony X to me. Especially the clean vocals, which sound like a poor mans Russell Allen. I hear a lot of BTBAM in the harsh vocals (like a poor mans Tommy Rogers) and in the general quirkiness of the songs. And you can hear Cynic's influence all over this; maybe a little old school Atheist. They take all these influences and create something that is all it's own, but not exactly original. Plus the slower bits and clean vocals take a lot of the wind out of the sails that are driving this boat, that is the album. The cleans aren't particularly good and then again I don't think the harsh vocals are particularly good. The instrumentation is pretty much top notch everywhere, so no real complaints there. I just kind of feel like this album is going to end up landing in with the heaps of albums that I've listened to a handful of times and thought I could be listening to a better version of what they are trying to do here. Therefor I end up never coming back to the album. It's not a bad album, it's just other bands seem to be doing stuff about 90% similar, but 10 times better. Having said that, the tracks Samadhi and Magic Rain are both really good and I could see myself putting them on a playlist for future listening.

Favorite Songs - Samadhi, Magic Rain
Least Favorite - Loss of Feelings or Feeling of Loss

7.4/10


Ultar - Kadath
Evermind
Blackgaze
Russia


First Impression - Kind of par for the course for this genre

Blackgaze seems to be kind of a stagnant genre these days. Nobody is really trying to come up with anything revolutionary or new. They seem to be either copying Alcest, Agalloch, Deafheaven, and Lantlos, (who in turn were just taking what Ulver had done on their first few albums and adding in Post punk and shoegaze) or they are putting out complete turds with recorded in a bathroom quality. This may just be a limitation of the genre though. Ultar seem to be of the former category (thankfully; I would have immediately eliminated you if you sent me bathroom quality music), which is both good new and bad news. The good news is, they are at least making quality music that copies the above mentioned bands. It generally has a good atmospheric approach with vocals that fit the genre well, mostly. I say mostly because this is another one of those bands that seems to think that harsh vocals must be used at all times, whether the music demands it or not. There are some slower, quieter parts that have harsh vocals over it and I have to ask myself, why? Why would they do that. At least take a page out of the Agalloch book and do some kind of echo-y clean vocals or something. Perhaps the vocalist isn't confident in his cleans. Fortunately this doesn't happen often. The final track, Kadath, is pretty epic though and so is the opening track to a lesser extent.

So the bad news is they cant seem top the quality of the bands they are copying, so therefor I would rather be reaching for an album by the bands who were originally doing this kind of music. Plus the 2 ambient tracks don't really do anything for me. They should have just been shortened and rolled in to the tracks that follow them, since they are being used as intro's anyways.

Favorite song - Kadath
Least Favorite - Shores of the Sleeping Seas

7.5/10


Labÿrinth - Architecture of a God
Lethean
Progressive Power Metal
Italy


First Impression - This dude can sing!

Iron Maiden and Motorhead like melodies and riffs with Dream Theater technicality and super cheesy keyboard leads. I mean seriously, that's some grade A class cheese, with a full side dose of more cheese. That's OK though. The vocalist, Roberto Tiranti, is seriously impressive. He has a good strong voice throughout the verses and then some of the high notes he hits are crazy. The drummer seems like he's trying to go full Mike Portnoy with the fills and odd drum rhythms. That makes sense though because it's John Macaluso, former Ark, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Jorn drummer. I really enjoyed the drum work. The guitarist is also channeling his inner Beartrucci and there's some tasty bass work in parts.

The songs all follow a similar structure. They all have a fairly high tempo (with a few exceptions) and are a good mix of progressive metal and power metal. Take On My Legacy has some seriously good guitar melodies and soloing going on. Architecture of a God is a longer piece and it has some cool (cheesy) keyboards and some fantastic singing. It could flow a little better, which would have made it one of the best songs of the round, but it does feel a touch disjointed. This album suffers from the same problem as some of the other albums this round, it overstays it's welcome, because it's after the title track that the album takes a dip in quality. The song Children isn't terrible, but it feel woefully out of place on this album. It sounds like something that belongs in a video game. Those Days doesn't really work for me. It's kind of a ballady track that feels like it was made for radio almost. The rest of the tracks are decent enough, but don't really approach the quality of the first half.

Favorite Songs - Take On My Legacy, Architecture of a God
Least Favorite - Children, Those Days

Heavenly - Dust to Dust
TAC
Power Metal
France


First Impression - Vocals don't quite do it for me.

This band seems to be fans of Bal-Sagoth, Rhapsody, and Angra. When listening to the first track on this album I thought I was in for a Rhapsody-like album, and it's not too far off. The vocals were the biggest obstacle to me enjoying this. This guys voice is a little too thin and whiny for my tastes, but I mostly got over it after a few listens. Plus his voice isn't always grating on me. He does some great vocals in the softer sections and has a few good higher register bits. The other obstacle was the overall cheese factor, but that went away once I realized they are just a power metal version of Bal-Sagoth with the technicality of Angra (almost). The quality of the songs are kind of a roller coaster ride. There's nothing outright terrible, but there are a few that don't maintain the same high quality as others. For example the first 4 proper tracks are really really good, but then Keepers of the Earth and Miracle aren't quite as good, plus Miracle is too long. Fight for deliverance is really high quality again and then the last 3 tracks just kind of fall off. So the album ends up being a victim of not knowing what to leave on the cutting room floor.

Overall the album is pretty enjoyable. With a few reworked tracks and some trimming of fat this could have easily been a 9/10 album, but you will have to settle for 8 instead. But that's better than where it started. I initially had it near the bottom of the pack after my first listen. So it did grow on me quite a bit.

Favorite songs - Lust for Life, Evil
Least Favorite - Hands of Darkness

8/10


Obscure Sphinx - Void Mother
Sacul
Atmospheric Sludge Metal
Poland


First Impression - Relaxing, Hypnotic, almost trance-like, heavy

Trying to describe this album is fairly difficult. It isn't exactly like their newest album, which I am familiar with. It has fewer post metal elements and is more straight ahead sludge metal. I guess... But it still has that great atmospheric quality to it. Which is probably what keeps it from tanking rating-wise. It definitely has that heavy Neurosis-like sludginess, but I think a closer comparison would be the band Minsk, especially the album The Crash & The Draw, or even the band Isis. The difference being a female vocalist, who by the way is awesome! She is right up there with Julie Christmas as far as female metal vocalists go. I like how her vocals complement the dark and moody atmosphere that the album brings to the table. This is highly evident in Velorio and Waiting for the Bodies Down the River Floating. This track also starts out with a cool drum and bass pattern that is hypnotic and engaging.

I think the only real issue I have with the album is it can sometimes get a little too repetitive and the songs tend to go on longer than they need to, hence the album goes on longer than it needs to. If they were to cut out a lot of the filler this album could easily be better than their newest album. By the way you get the bonus half point! :jamaritard:

Favorite Songs - Lunar Caustic, Waiting for the Bodies Down the River Floating

Return to Forever - Romantic Warrior
Indiscipline
Jazz Fusion
United States


First Impression - How have I not listened to this album before?

This album is something else. Probably the most technically proficient album of this round. Every one is on point from a technical stand point, but not everything really floats my boat, but I'll get to that in a moment. This is one of those albums that was always in my orbit. Between friends, various forums, websites, internet prog radio (Progulus anyone?), and the plethora of bands that I do know, I've heard mention of this album many times. I may have even heard a track or two from it years ago. Yet, for some reason, I've never given it a listen. I'm glad it was sent to me in this roulette.

Being an instrumental album, obviously you have to be technically really good at your instruments or at the very least be excellent craftsmen of melody/song structure. These guys do both, at least for the most part. The drumming, especially the thunderous opening track, is spectacular throughout. This is the type of Jazz Fusion drumming that I think everyone within this genre tries to achieve. At least it's the style I like to emulate when playing more jazz oriented stuff. The bass is groovy as hell and reminds of the more Funk inspired Blue Food album that was sent in round 1. This album also has a few Funk tendencies scattered in and it's mostly to do with the bass lines. The guitar playing really caught my attention the first time through. The whole time I kept thinking, this sounds like Al Di Meola. This was before I dug deeper in to who was involved with the album and lo and behold it is Al Di Meola! Lots of great, tasteful playing on his part. Even some great technical and flashy soloing.

Now the part of the album that bugs me is Chick Corea's keyboard/piano playing. To me, it's way too in your face and a lot of the keyboard patches sound really cheesy to me. These days I prefer keyboards to act as atmosphere or to add an ambient quality to the music. Think more Porcupine Tree style. I can stand the occasional lead run on the keyboards and I love just plain piano, but the super cheesy lead keyboard patches that show up all over the album get on my nerves after a while. I suppose this could just be a symptom of the time period. I can see where a lot of the late 80's and early 90's video games got inspiration for their music now :D Fortunately songs like The Romantic Warrior rely mostly on just pianos and it sounds really great. It lets the other instruments really shine. Like Di Meola's fantastic acoustic solo part and the thundering bass playing of Stanley Clarke, who by the way I am more than familiar with from his work with The Stanley Clarke Trio and his solo stuff.

I can definitely appreciate what everyone is doing on this album from a musician's standpoint and for the most part the song writing is really great and there are some slick melodies. It makes it pretty enjoyable.

Favorite Song - The Romantic Warrior
Least Favorite - Medieval Overture

8/10


Bill Bruford's Earthworks - A Part, and Yet Apart
Romdrums
Jazz Fusion
United Kingdom


First Impression - While very good, the drums aren't even the highlight of the album as one would imagine.

Maybe it's because a lot of the newer metal albums I've been listening to have been including Saxophone in them, but I really enjoy the sax on this album. The whole album is very well constructed and as I brought out in my first impression I do really enjoy the drumming too. This is one of those albums that I always planned on getting to eventually, but never did. Bill Bruford is one of my favorite drummers and definitely my favorite Yes and King Crimson drummer. I also enjoy his contribution to Gordian Knot and UK. This album is basically a straight ahead Jazz album, with a little fusion thrown in. Jazz is pretty easy for me too enjoy, including most of it's sub-genres, unless the music devolves in to Smooth Jazz, aka Elevator music, then it can just fock right off. But I digress. As I said the saxophone if my favorite part of this album and it kicks right off about half way through the first track, No Truce with the Furies. Parts of this song, especially the first half, has a lot of a nostalgia feel to it. It reminds me of some of the menu music from the old Gran Turismo games that I played growing up. The title track has a really cool piano and sax groove. It has a very 40's/50's lounge style to it. The rest of the album pretty much keeps similar style arrangements and because of that there really isn't any song that I dislike. I suppose that is part of the problem with the album, they don't really do anything too different. A little more variety might have been welcome, of course they could have shot themselves in the foot by doing that too. What do I know, I'm not a super successful drummer like Mr. Bruford (just a mediocre drummer for the last 20 years :P). Even with the lack of variety style wise, there's still of a lot of variety in time signatures (some really cool ones too) and tempo, so it keeps the album interesting from start to finish. Probably not something I will come back to often, but when I'm in a jazzy mood this is something I can add to my collection of awesome Jazz albums.

Akhlys - The Dreaming I
Parama
Atmospheric Black Metal
United States


First Impression - Biggest cock blocking fadeout I've heard all year.

This has some similarities in the spacey wall of sound to Darkspace (although with cleaner, yet still dense production) and the more experimental ambiance of Blut Aus Nord. The first two songs start off so good with great atmosphere and a thunderous ferocity only to kneecap itself with that extremely ill timed and bizarrely placed fadeout at the end of Tides of Oneiric Darkness. Just when the song sounds like its going to explode in to this enormous grand finale/climax it just........fades out??!!!?? WTF?!?! The first half of the track is so impressively forceful that the fade out just kills the vibe. Perhaps the band thought that part would cause utter destruction in all listeners if they didn't fade it out. Whatever, I just wanted to hear it in all its wonderful, terrible glory. It just felt like the whole song was ramping up to that part. I feel like I'm dwelling on the negatives of this album far too much though. In reality that's about the only bad thing I have to say about it. I guess Consummation takes a liiiitle longer to get going than I would like, but the ambiance fits really well, so that isn't really a negative, and boy is it fantastic once it gets going. Speaking of the ambient sections, they are quite varied and help immensely with the mood of the album. It's dark and brooding and perhaps supposed to invoke a bit of a sense of dread or fear. Then the metal sections swoop in and kind of take your breath away with this fast, heavy, dense, crushing sound.

This album is a fantastic example of what is so great about music. The ability to draw out so many different emotions, depending on the style of music. Even though this has more of a chance of filling you with a sense of foreboding than happiness, it is still an enjoyable experience. It's definitely within the style of black metal that I enjoy the most.

Favorite Song - Consummation
Least Favorite - Tides of Oneiric Darkness

8.7/10


Monica Heldal - Boy From the North
Kattelox
Indie Folk
Norway


First Impression - 1 bad song doesn't spoil the bunch. Ethereal vocals and great production.

While this album is familiar stylistically, I haven't really heard one quite like it. The closest I could think of would be Susanne Sundfør or First Aid Kit. And yet those aren't exactly the same. Either way I really like this. It didn't exactly start out that way though. First listen I thought the first couple tracks were good, the rest were OK, with the exception of 1, which I thought was bad. I figured on it getting a 6.5 or 7. On my second listen I couldn't even remember which one I thought was bad (not sure why I didn't write that down, for future reference), which bumped the score up to about a 7.8/10. Third time through, I was sure this was the best album of the round. Go figure.

Every song here is great! I love this kind of folky, acoustic, singer/songwriter type music. Even when the music turns more Bluegrassy/country I still like it. Although those are the bits I like the least and what bring the score down a bit, with the lowest point of the album being Waiting On the Fire, mostly because of the repetitive lyrics and melodies. The first track, Boy From the North, is such a wonderful way to start the album and it may still be my favorite on the album. Although Conman Coming is pretty great too with those cool guitar licks and layering. The beginning of Fightin Son reminds me a bit of Devin Townsend's Casualties of Cool. The run of songs between Fightin Son and The Road Not Taken is fantastic, with lots of lyrics that I really like. I think the big thing that really draws me in to this album is her voice and the conviction and feeling she has while singing.

Overall this album is a huge departure from the last one you sent, but just about as good. Plus it restored my faith in acoustic folky music after the relative disaster that was Shallow Grave. Everything bad about that album was 1000% better here and everything good about that album was only made stronger on this one because of a much better singer and much better production. I almost want to give this a higher score, but you'll have to be content with a 9. :D

I'm fine with foreign languages as long as the focus of the music isn't entirely on the lyrics. One of my favorite albums of all time (Verisakeet by Moonsorrow) is entirely in Finnish and I don't understand a word of it.

Might be this round. Once again did a complete 180 on style, and it's not what I'd call easy listening, but I hope you find it enjoyable. I did choose it with your tastes in mind of course.

Gotta tell you clowns... all this "oh, mine sucks!" and "oh, waiting for my 4.5 out of 1,000" and "oh, last place here I come!" whining while you're pulling 9.8's is a disgrace.    You all sound like that dork in high school with big pit stains because they're worried about failing their test but actually blow the fucking curve for the rest of us by nailing that A.  If you're going to cry about your scores at least GET the 4.5 you're "hoping" for. 

Like me.  :)

Brother, I'm telling you with 100% honesty, I fully expected Alithia to come in last place for some reason and Monica Heldal to probably end up in the middle of the pack. I'm pretty chuffed by how Puppies has taken to them, but even in his first roulette my highest scoring songs were luck-of-the-draw picks (two electronic pieces and one corny power metal epic). Ain't no cryin' over here, but you should take a listen to one of the songs on the album I sent this time and you'll understand why I'm a bit nervous  :lol

How about a few first impressions. I'm getting a good head start on this batch of albums.

- This album is just silly
- This album has me excited like the first time I heard Moonsorrow. I feel like this is going to be a huge grower.
- Interesting mixture of various styles in a relatively basic, but subtly intriguing framework
- This is just Vanden Plas with Derek Sherinian on keyboards in disguise, right?

Too obvious?  ::)

Yeah, I had a heck of a time sourcing a digital copy.

Yeah, it was a one-off album with Dave Navarro and Eric Avery of Jane's and a drummer I'm not sure I've heard of outside of this project.  It was right before Navarro joined the Chili Peppers and right when Farrell formed Porno For Pyros.

It's an interesting record, if you ask me, though according to wikipedia, it's a "cult masterpiece" now.  :) I love all things Navarro, so it's a favorite of mine.

RE: Navarro/RHCP..


Now I am not what you would call a RHCP fan, but I loved me some Mother's Milk in college, and I LOVE One Hot Minute. Saw that tour at the um..Fleetcenter in 1996. Great show.

A few more impressions to keep y'all sated.

- Sort of lighter, softer, more mid to slower paced, but it is emotionally gripping.
- Fairly diverse, considering the genre's involved.
- This kind of leaves me cold, with no emotional attachment to the music.

Here's the rest of the snippets.

- This is more unique and better played than I thought it would be.
- I really like this vocalist in another band I'm familiar with. I'm confused as to why they picked who they did for backing/secondary vocals and not his other skills....
- This is not what I was expecting from this band based on the genre.
- What if Alice in Chains, Mastodon, Alter Bridge, and Mudvayne decided to collaborate on an album, but not sound like any of their bands.
- This album hits me in a very peculiar way. It's a good way, just....peculiar. It's like a standard prog metal band being directed by Deafheaven or something.

Round 3 Results

Solefald - Norrøn livskunst
Lethean
Avant-Garde Metal
Norway


First Impression - This album is just silly

This album is nuts. At first it started out all serious with a great folky metal song with great use of various vocal styles. Then the title track comes in with some pretty intense black metal vocals. I was expecting it, considering the band, I was just lulled in to a false sense of security with the relative lightness of the opening song. The use of the black metal vocals is used well though.
Tittentattenteksti is where the album goes off the rails a bit (a lot). The clean vocals are fine, but what are those harsh vocals? It's either The Chipmunks trying to do black metal vocals or a witch being boiled in oil.... It made me laugh really. I'm sure there's a good song here somewhere, but I couldn't stop laughing long enough to find it. Blackabilly-Stridsljod is just weird. Is this hillbilly black metal? Is this what those guys from Duck Dynasty would listen to if they were in to metal? I guess with a song name like Blackabilly I should have expected this. There are short bursts of brilliance in this song, just not enough to make it more enjoyable than weird.

Now Eukalyptustreet is where the album really shifts gears. This is something entirely different from everything that preceded it and I like it, a lot! It has this jazzy noire sound with this sexy saxophone sprinkled throughout. There's some great use of varying vocal styles to set the different moods of the song and some nice piano to accompany the sax. The rest of the album doesn't really reach the same levels of brilliance of this song, but there are some highlights. For instance, the third part of their Icelandic Odyssey, which is much more familiar to me. About 10 years ago I used to listen to a quite a bit of Solefald with their Red for Fire and Black for Death albums, which are the first 2 parts of their Icelandic Odyssey. I hadn't listened to those albums in quite a few years, but this song brought back some memories of those albums.

Overall this album is quite the mixed bag. There are parts that are fantastically brilliant and parts that made me laugh, and parts that were more just un-listenable.

6.6/10


The Receiving End of Sirens - The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi
Parama
Alternative Rock
United States

(bonus point band)

First Impression - Interesting mixture of various styles in a relatively basic framework

I am of course somewhat familiar with TREoS, being the band where Casey Crescenzo got his start before leaving to form The Dear Hunter. I only ever listened to their debut album though. Mostly because my wife told me that this album wasn't anywhere close to as good. I wouldn't say it's not as good though (I actually like it slightly more), but it is a bit different stylistically. I'm not sure if the band went in this direction because Casey Crescenzo left or if Casey Crescenzo left because of the direction the band wanted to go. Which is interesting to me, because Casey would go on to explore a lot of the sounds and styles that are present on this album. Although to me Casey has done a better job when exploring these styles in The Dear Hunter. The album definitely isn't bad though, but it does get a little long winded, both in length of the album and length of some of the songs and the vocals tend to lean more towards the standard emo style than I would like. They seem to make the most of the shorter songs. For example, Saturnus is a really really good song clocking in at less than 4 minutes with great hooks, guitar leads, and vocal melodies that aren't too emo. They seem to get in their own way with some of the longer songs. Like The Salesman, The Husband, The Lover; it gets too repetitive. This is also a problem on Wanderers and Pale Blue Dot, but to a lesser extent. The Heir of Empty Breath is really the only longer song that works 100% for me. The only other issue I have with the album

This album has definitely benefited and grown on me with more listens. It has a lot of layers to the music that isn't immediately easy to pick out. It has the depth that I like in music. I could see it growing on me more in the future possibly. If 8-10 minutes were cut from the album and a few of the songs were reworked this could be a 9/10 album, but as is, not so much. Unfortunately I will have to deny you of your bonus points. Nice effort though.

7.7/10 (-1) = 6.7/10 Total Score


Lost in Thought - Opus Arise
Jingle
Progressive Metal
Wales


First Impression - This is just Vanden Plas with Derek Sherinian on keyboards in disguise, right?

So this is a band consisting of Andy Kuntz's brother Dusty Kuntz on vocals, Jeff Loomis' Evil Twin on guitar, Mike Portnoy's younger cousin from the UK on drums, some guy trying to channel Geddy Lee and the bassist from Korn on Bass, and a guy that is obviously Derek Sherinian on keys. Did I get that all right?

Anyway, this band really isn't afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves proudly. They aren't blatantly copying the bands they are emulating and do have their own sound, so it's not a problem.  I Just cant help but notice the obvious Vanden Plas and Derek Sherinian Influences. The vocalist sounds almost exactly like Andy Kuntz at times. I also here bits of Empty Tremor occasionally. The music is mostly good. Lots of cool things to pick out. Like that really cool section about halfway through Blood Red Diamond starting around 2:50 with that really growly/dirty bass tone and the double bass. I Really like the bass tone and how it's mixed in the music throughout the album, but it can get a little repetitive in some songs. The first 4 songs are all pretty bitchin, as well as the last 2. The problems arise with New Times Awaken. It's poorly constructed. The melodies don't work, the vocal lines are awkward, it's disjointed. I just don't like it and it feels super out of place. Then the beginning of Delusional Abyss almost sounds like a remixed version of New Times Awaken, I had to do a double take to make sure I wasn't listening to the same song again. Fortunately it changed up after a bit. The song actually gets really good at about the halfway point. It's just the first half of it didn't sit well with me. The last track Assimulate, Destroy is quite a bit different from the rest of the album. I quite like it, especially to close out the album. It actually feels like a finisher.

This album only has a couple of bad spots. Overall its a solid Progressive Metal release with lots of familiarity to latch on to without being a copycat band.

8/10


Agrimonia - Awaken
TAC
Atmospheric Sludge Metal
Sweden


First Impression - This album has me excited like the first time I heard Moonsorrow. I feel like this is going to be a huge grower.

Not an album I ever would have expected TAC to send me in a roulette. But it seems TAC is paying really close attention to my tastes and music I have been gravitating to lately. This is another in the Atmospheric metal arena with heavy spacey riffs and awesome female vocals/screams/growls. Very similar in style to stuff like Obscure Sphinx, Dreadnought, and Oathbreaker. This though seems to be way more about the incredible and hypnotic guitar riffs that continually drive the music forward. The opening track is riddled with awesome riffs. Then Astray is moved from section to section with what sounds like late nineties post grunge riffs in an early Deafheaven-like atmospheric metal structure. If that sounds weird to you, it is, but it really works. I kept thinking I'd heard similar riffing before, but I couldn't pinpoint the metal band that these riffs were seemingly inspired by. Then it hit me, these aren't metal riffs, these are riffs similar to what bands like Dishwalla, Our Lady Peace, and Candlebox used in their heyday. I digress though, because it's really towards the middle of this song where it gets really good. The rest of the album follows a lot of the same structure, but is varied enough to not become repetitive. Plus there are a lot of subtle nuances throughout the album that you don't immediately pick up on in the first couple listens. This is where the Moonsorrow similarity comes in. These two bands don't really sound alike, but the music of both is very layered with lots of cool little flares to pick out everywhere. I could see me coming back to this album again and again. I'm curious if this is an album you actually really like or if it's something you sent because you knew it would appeal to my tastes or both. Either way it gets high praise and a high score from me!

Your snippet was pretty obvious  :lol

Here's a couple more randomly chosen results!

Jonas Hellborg & Shawn Lane - Personae
Indiscipline
Jazz Rock
United States


First Impression - This kind of leaves me cold, with no emotional attachment to the music

Unlike the previous two instrumental albums you sent me so far, this one leaves me feeling pretty much nothing. Sure the music is technically very good and I can appreciate what each member is doing here, but in the end, once the album is over, I have no desire to really go back and listen to it again. I'm not sure how much of this is improvised, to me it sounds about half and half. There are obvious sections that are improvised because they don't come together very well. At times it feels quite disjointed. I feel like this is an album that sacrifices good melodies and song writing for pure wankery. I do really enjoy some of the stuff that each person is doing here. Some of the guitar solos are really fantastic, I love the bass tone and the slap bass technique that's used occasionally, and the drummer is very impressive throughout. I would love to see what they could come up with if they were to focus more on solid song writing.

This was kind of a swing and a miss for you. Better luck next time.

5.8/10


VOLA - Inmazes
Romdrums
Djenty Progressive Metal
Denmark


First Impression - Fairly diverse, considering the genre's involved.

This may sound weird, but I hear influences of stuff like Frost*(The Frost* sound really comes through in the keyboards), Arena, and Mew along with the obvious influences of Leprous and Meshuggah. I think I has something to do with the melodies in the music and vocals. And what great melodies they are. I think this has the best melodies of any Djent album ever made (or at least of the ones I've heard (and I've heard a lot)), but that isn't really saying much since most Djent doesn't focus on melody. Having said that, the melodies here are super good. I think I've said the word melody enough now....Lots of memorable stuff. Like the keyboards in Stray the Skies mixed with those vocals, it's just heavenly. There's even a touch of Depeche Mode in there too, but that may be reaching a bit. Typically Djent doesn't really have much that is memorable, you know something that you could hum or sing to yourself, but this has been invading my brain with it's infectious music all week. I think this is all helped because the djenty grooves that are the back bone of this album are also pulled off with great skill and attention to detail as far as song writing goes. It all blends together so well that, even though they pulled from so many styles of music, it doesn't sound disjointed or contrived. It may be the first Djent album that I could call beautiful.

Now on to the bad. The vocals at times are annoying. Specifically in Owls, although the piano melody in this song is absolutely beautiful. Also there are fade outs all over this album. I hate fade outs. Just finish the damn song! Not too many bad things all said and done. This may be my new favorite Djent album and I can see me listening to this for a while.

Glad you liked it, Pup!

To answer your question, this album is amazing. It came up on my new album feed a while back and I saved it on Spotify. I ended up buying the CD proper (only $8.91) on Amazon.

I didn't think you were that crazy about growls, but I've been noticing what you've been sending lately. Musically this is such a great album, I figured what the hell. Learning to at least tolerate the vocals has really unearthed some great bands.

A couple more randomly chosen results  :corn

Wolverine - Communication Lost
Evermind
Progressive Metal
Sweden

(bonus point band)

First Impression - Sort of lighter, softer, more mid to slower paced, but it is emotionally gripping.

I am of course familiar with Wolverine. Their album Still is a very good album. This album is a bit different though. It's slower, lighter, and filled with incredible atmospheric keyboards. This is all evident in the first two tracks, especially in Into the Great Nothing. With the not wanky keyboards that sound more akin to Richard Barbieri's keys in Porcupine Tree and the melodic guitars that while technically proficient (that guitar solo in Your Favourite War  :tup), they never fall in to the same wankfest traps that most Prog metal tends to these days. Melody seems to be the main focus here and reminds me in small part of Pain of Salvation. They are heavy when they need to be, but always keeping focus on the melody. This helps keep the music memorable and not a chore to listen to. The song writing is just plain fantastic and makes this album emotionally gripping. It's definitely not a happy album and that comes across well not just in the lyrics, but the music behind it as well. Even though it's more melancholic, it's still beautiful. I do subscribe to Steven Wilson's idea that the saddest music is often the most beautiful.

This album could be improved if they added a bit more heaviness to a few sections. It doesn't get heavy too often and there are places where it definitely could have used that. Also Stefen Zell sticks to his lower register in the vocals too much. His upper register sounds really good and could have helped give this a more epic feeling. Regardless it's still a great album on par with Still.

8/10 (+.5) = 8.5/10 total score


Zierler - ESC
Kattelox
Progressive Metal
Denmark


First Impression - I really like this vocalist in another band I'm familiar with. I'm confused as to why they picked who they did for backing/secondary vocal and not his other skills....

I think this album may have singlehandedly (Is that even a word?) rekindled my love for straight ahead prog metal. The song writing is fantastic, the vocals are great, with just the right amount of harshness in spots, they are technical when they need to be, and it just plain sounds awesome. I don't know how I haven't come across this album before. I never even knew it existed. I mean you have Bobby Jarzombek, who is one of the best drummers around right now, who is continuing his reign of terror on the skins on this album. Then you have Per Nilsson, who is the brains behind Scar Symmetry, who shows his skills here brilliantly playing both guitar and bass. And you have Kelly Carpenter, who I know very well from his work in Outworld, but I think he may have outdone that vocal performance here. I'm not as familiar with Finn Zierler, but I do know him from Beyond Twilight, but I never really liked that band. The keyboards on this album are fine though. Not too cheesy, not too in your face. The weird part is using Truls Haugen for vocals as well, when he is a brilliant drummer in his own right. I guess if you have Bobby Jarzombek behind the kit you don't really need to have anyone else there. Still an odd choice for vocals though, even though he does a good job with the harsher vocals.

The music on this album is the obvious highlight for me. Specifically the guitars and drums. The album starts off with a bang with both A New Beginning and Aggrezzor. Aggrezzor especially is awesome with some great interplay between the guitar and drums and fantastic vocals. Love those guitar solos. Evil Spirit also has some great soloing and drumming and is heavy as hell, but with a fantastic use of melody. The song No Chorus has some really good lyrics and is a good social commentary on music in general. The album closes out with two brilliant songs, Water and Whispers. These are less heavy and a bit more atmospheric, especially with the keyboards. I really appreciate the way they bring technicality to this album. Even when they go off on a tangent of wankery, it doesn't feel like musical masturbation. It fits and serves to drive the song forward and they don't wallow in it. I suppose the only low parts would be Darkness Delight and Dark to the Bone, the former sounding a bit too much like Symphony X, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but with the uniqueness of the rest of the album it stands out as being too traditional prog metal.

I really hope these guys are planning a second album, because I can't wait to see what they come up with next. Congrats on sending another fantastic album, your strategy of genre hopping is working so far.

9/10

Really glad you like that album so much, it threw me for a loop at first. It's such a dense album with so much to digest that it left me exhausted after the first listen. My favorite tracks are Agrezzor, Rainheart, and Dark to the Bone. Will send later tonight, I feel my luck running thin though.

Well, "Neverland" is the best song on the record, but I get your point.  "The Damage" is just amazing and I can't believe they left it off the 1CD version.

Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on November 04, 2018, 08:57:04 PM
Here's the rest of the round 3 results. I know a couple of you will be disappointed.

Refused - The Shape of Punk to Come: A Chimerical Bombination in 12 Bursts
Sacul
Post Hardcore
Sweden


First Impression - This is not what I was expecting from this band based on the genre.

I had a tough time with this album. It's both incredibly ambitious and boring at the same time. I love me some Post Hardcore, which is what this is labeled as, but this sounds more like oldschool Hardcore Punk with more avant-garde ambitions. The comes in when trying to mix in ambient and electronica interludes with what they are calling Post Hardcore. The problem is they don't mix well. There's no real flow, it's actually really disjointed for the most part. The songs have weird random breaks in to some bad techno beats. There's no preamble to it, just hardcore riffing then all of a sudden BOOM TECHNO IN YOUR FACE. The biggest problem is the music is mostly pretty bland. They don't do anything revolutionary. They kind of sound like they are trying to mix Rage Against the Machine with Fugazi. The good thing is there is plenty of variety here, even if most of it doesn't work too well. There are some good head bangable parts. The vocals are for the most part pretty good, with a few really cringeworthy exceptions.

I read some other reviews on this album because it seems to have pretty high scores from other people. I see people saying that it was revolutionary for its time and how it paved the way for bigger and better things and influenced a lot of the bands we have now in the post hardcore scene. Which all may be true, but I would rather be listening to those bands that are doing things better.

5.9/10


Deconstruction - Deconstruction
Stadler
Alternative Rock
United States

First Impression - This is more unique and better played than I thought it would be.

This album is definitely a product of it's time. It has a lot of similarities with other albums within this genre and among their contemporaries. I am familiar with who Dave Navarro is, but I never did get in to Jane's Addiction outside of a few of their songs.

This album is quite polarizing. Basically the first 8 songs all go from pretty good to really great. They do some neat and unique things. Dave Navarro is a better guitarist than I thought. I especially love stuff like those twinkly arpeggios in Iris. The run from LA Song through Fire in the Hole is a pretty great run of music. Son and Big Sur sees a little drop in quality, but I just chalk that up to a mid album lull. But the rest of the songs are.....well, they aren't very good. Songs like One, America, and Wait for History are all overlong and repetitive. The lyrics don't speak to me in any meaningful way and the vocals sound like he's bored, I mean the vocals are all fairly similar throughout, but they were less noticeable in the first half because they were backed by interesting music. The drop off in quality from the first to the second half is pretty jarring. Through the first 8 songs this would probably rate at about an 8 to 8.5. With the second half dragging it down I cant rate it nearly that high. I appreciate you taking a different approach from everyone else when sending albums, but this one just didn't work in your favor.

6/10


Amendfoil - Empyrean & Ophidian
Ariich
Alternative Progressive Metal
Finland


First Impression - What if Alice in Chains, Mastodon, Alter Bridge, and Mudvayne decided to collaborate on an album, but not sound like any of their bands.

So I received a song from this album in my last roulette, Silver Linings, and it is definitely my favorite song on this album. It doesn't really sound like anything else on the album. The rest of the album fits my description in my first impression pretty well I think. There are times where the vocals sound like Miles Kennedy from Alter Bridge, there's vocal and guitar harmonies and grungy bits that sound like Alice in Chains, there's bits that sound like Chad Gray's harsher vocals and Greg Tribbett's incessant guitar riffing. There's some more proggy sludgy riffage that reminds me of Mastodon (like in Pale Horse, which is like a combo of Mastodon rhythms and Mudvayne/Alter Bridge vocals). It's all a very weird combination for me and at the same time this album doesn't exactly sound like any of the aforementioned bands. I don't know if I have had enough listens to fully wrap my head around it. Although you would think 4 listens through would be enough...There's even some Pop Punk riffing at times. There's djenty stuff. Then there's some really technical drumming in sporadic places which is then followed up with some rhythms and beats you would find on an early Paramore album. What?!?! These guys are just channeling tons of different artistic influences and yet paving their own path. I have a feeling they will pull it all together and put out an amazing album to follow this up.

7.8/10


Foscor - Les irreals visions
Elite
Progressive Black Metal
Spain


First Impression - This album hits me in a very peculiar way. It's a good way, just....peculiar. It's like a standard prog metal band being directed by Deafheaven or something.

This is one of those albums that seems to draw on a lot of different styles of music and have many influences. Sometimes this can lead to a jumbled mess of an album and sometimes it can lead a revelation of music that pushes the boundaries forward and is the true essence of what progressive music is all about. This really neither of those things. It doesn't really push any genre of music forward and it's not an indecipherable disaster. It's really just an album that seems to stand on the backs of it's predecessors and peers. I mentioned the Deafheaven comparison in my first impression, which is there, but there's also some of the avant-garde leanings of In the Woods or Arcturus. There's lots of atmosphere, similar to a lot of post black metal bands. There's varying and sometimes strange vocals that reminds me of the aforementioned avant-garde leaning metal bands. There's even some psychedelic rock moments (like in Ciutat tràgica) and some Agalloch-like folky bits (displayed in Altars). There's also some great guitar work throughout this album. The solo in Altars is really emotional and not overly technical (that would just ruin the atmosphere). I like the dirty bass tone, it provides a nice counterbalance to the clean sounds of the other instruments. Overall this isn't as heavy or as metally as I was expecting. It's like a more avant-garde late era Katatonia. I was actually somewhat surprised how short this album is, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It was just over before I knew it. Even though I cant understand any of the vocals, it doesn't detract from the album. The vocal melodies and harmonies are all actually done very well. Sometimes the singer goes a bit off the rails, but not often.

I kind of want to dig in to this bands back catalog now. I've read that they started out as a more Black Metal band and slowly transitioned to this style. I'd be interested in seeing where they started. Overall this is an album I could see myself coming back to again in the future. So power, many atmospheric WOW!

8.3/10


I don't think I forgot anyone, if I did speak up  :lol

Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (Round 4 Results trickling in)
Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on November 10, 2018, 06:36:07 PM
Here's some results for round 4!

Tiles - Fence the Clear
Lethean
Progressive Rock
United States

(bonus point band)

First Impression - It's Rush meets Triumph.

While the Rush and Triumph (even a little Dream Theater) influences are very strong here, it does sound original for the most part. The album starts off really strong with Patterns with great guitar melodies and cool drum work, even a little jazzy at times. This continues through Another's Hand, with more great instrumental acrobatics. The album also ends on a couple of high notes with the epic Checkerboards and No Failure (which I think is a bonus track, not really sure). Checkerboards kind of going all out with the riffs and guitar solos. The biggest issue with this album is the middle. Starting with the acoustic The Wading Pool the album begins to drag big time. This song is over six minutes of the same thing basically. It really should have only lasted 3 minutes. Gameshow and Fallen Pieces are both non events. Then we come to Changing the Guard, which is another song that is way too long and repetitive for its own good. It's on par with a couple of the later Rush duds as far as being boring and repetitive, namely Working them Angels and Wish Them Well. Then Gabby's Happy Song is another acoustic interlude, non event. It's basically 20 consecutive minutes of boredom, which is about a third of the album. Take out those 20 minutes and you have a 9.5 or 10/10. The rest of the album is good enough to not tank the score too much, but it isn't enough to get you the bonus points.

7.8/10 (-1) = 6.8/10 total score


Alrakis - Echoes From η Carinae
Parama
Atmospheric Black Metal
Germany


First Impression - Too slow to be Darkspace, too fast and interesting (by far) to be NǽnøĉÿbbŒrğ VbëřřĦōlökäävsŦ

There aren't many albums in my collection that capture the cold harsh reality of outer space quite as well as this one. Sure space is beautiful (which this album also portrays subtly), but the reality is it's cold, dark, unforgiving, and won't hesitate to kill you for the slightest misstep. I'd say the other band that does something similar is Darkspace. Although they rely more on various production techniques and pure ferocious speed (more so than this) to portray outer space.

Being one long song/track I'd say the one thing that brings the score down a little is it takes about 6 minutes for anything to happen. I do understand what they were trying to accomplish though and it does build the atmosphere. The vocals come in around the 10 minute mark and are less like Darkspace and more like something Coldworld would do. Which actually works great with the space theme, the vocal style is cold and hollow, almost like someone screaming in to the void of space. The music takes a much slower approach than I was expecting, but it works really well. The whole track gives off this emotion of loneliness which further helps build this spacey atmosphere. Space is a lonely place after all.

I think what really captivates me, being an amateur astronomer, is the subject matter of this album. I have no idea what the lyrics are (I cant find any anywhere), but I can only assume they have to do with the Eta Carinae star system (hence the album name) and the event that took place back in the 1800's called the Great Eruption, which caused Eta Carinae to be one of the brightest objects in the night sky. Light from that event is still picked up as echoes or reflections off of nearby interstellar dust clouds. The light sparkly bell sounds near the middle of the track and the light, faint piano a little later remind me of what could be considered echoes of light. Considering this album took 7 years to make, it wouldn't surprise me if they went that in depth with this. All the music and effects here sounds like it was purpose built to make this song as true to the subject matter as possible and give discerning listeners something to debate about and enjoy.

The only other issue I have with the album is I wish there more moments of increased speed/tempo, it would have made the album a bit more dynamic. Either way the album is excellent and will only get better with more listens.

8.9/10


Enshine - Singularity
TAC
Melodic Death Metal
Sweden


First Impression - I was laying in bed listening to this on my headphones, I forgot my wife was in the room and I said out loud "This is really fucking good." Now, I typically don't curse and it totally caught my wife off guard :lol

More Melodic Death Metal from our resident Growl Master :D This is just high class melodeath with an intense atmospheric doomy approach that gives it a ton of character and class. There's some clean vocals that come in occasionally that work really well. The guitar solos are full of emotion and work well with the atmosphere, especially in Adrift, that is just masterful use of melody working for the song, there's another solo in In Our Mind that is similarly impressive. The harsh vocals are pretty standard Melodeath growls, not much to write home about on that front. They neither get in the way or necessarily make the album any better. The lyrics on the other hand I really enjoy. They are very spacey sci-fi lyrics, which I always enjoy. I'm not sure if it's meant to be a concept album, but the lyrics seem like they could loosely interconnect to form one coherent story. Overall the lyrics are quite enjoyable. I like the idea of putting a mellow instrumental track right in the middle of this album to bridge the first and second half. It's kind of like giving the listener a breather and a chance to reflect on what came before and what might come next. The only problems this album has is some of the songs are musically not as strong and some tracks don't differ enough from others, but when even the weakest of tracks are still pretty strong it makes for a very good album. Also the production is a little muddier than I would like, but that could just be an artistic choice to enhance the overall atmosphere. Regardless this is another strong submission from Mr. TAC.

8.8/10

and definitely check out alpha eri too, it gets started pretty much right away but it's not as balanced, that is to say, it's like 30-35 minutes of black metal and then 20 minutes of space ambient at the end, i think i like the individual songs there better than this one but i concede this is a better constructed album on the whole

Pup, glad you liked Enshine. I LOVE that album. A couple of years before I was really entertaining growls, there was just something about this that was so captivating. I bought it straight out. An odd thing in my collection at the time, but it is just so damn cool.


Will be sending the EP tonight!

Some more random Round 4 results. :corn

Kingcrow - The Persistence
Evermind
Progressive Metal
Italy


First Impression - This didn't really impress me much, it's fairly methodical and plodding. Needs more listens I think.

This started off well enough with some cool riffing and nice keyboards, but the majority of the songs are all pretty similarly constructed. They all stay in a mid to slow tempo, don't offer any real variety, and don't stray very far from what the first track brought to the table. The vocals seem to have no life to them, the singer sounds disinterested in what he's doing or the lyrics or both. The only exception to this would be the song Night's Descending, but that's because Daniel Gildenlow is doing guest vocals here and he can make most music sound interesting. The song is still slow and doesn't do much, which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if the rest of the album wasn't the same. Some variety in tempo, rhythm, some technical flourishes, wouldn't kill them would it?

The album isn't completely terrible though. Some of the tracks taken one at a time can be good, but a whole album of this gets a little boring.

6/10


Sine - Ruhepol
Kattelox
Ambient
No idea where they are from  :huh:


First Impression - Deep Forest goes straight Chillwave and doesn't know when to stop

Deep Forest like downtempo being held up by a foundation of extremely relaxed chillwave should be a recipe for success right? Well, not entirely. There are parts that are phenomenally well done. Like the opening track Wolke 7's nice guitar melody or the chilling synths in Samsara. It definitely makes for a relaxing experience in those instances. None of the songs here are particularly offensive, in fact each song taken individually is anywhere from decent to excellent. There are two major problems I have with this album, though. First, the album is far too long. If you chop about 20-25 minutes of the least quality material here, you may have a 7.5-8/10 on your hands. The second problem is the production, it is way too loud. None of the instruments have room to breathe. It starts to get a little fatiguing after about 15 minutes. Fix this issue along with the first and you have yourself a 9-9.5/10. There are tons of great ideas here; the layered use of field recordings, the use of vocals as an instrument, the brief uses of spoken word, the variety of instrumentation, the beats, etc, etc. It's just too bad they are all drowned in bad production. We aren't talking Death Magnetic levels of terrible production here, but still it could be much much better. I'd definitely be interested in hearing something else by these guys if they fix these issues.

6.8/10


Maestrick - Unpuzzle!
Jingle
Progressive Metal
Brazil


First Impression - Dream Theater meets Angra at Michael Romeo's circus

This album start off with an absolute barn burner of a track. 1 part Dream Theater, 1 part Brazilian power metal influence, with a dash of Symphony X and cheesy keyboards. Lots of fun instrumental breaks and technical playing. It's a fun song, with ridiculous lyrics (like the rest of the album, sort of like Systematic Chaos & Black Clouds and Silver Linings era Dream Theater). The rest of the album does change things up quite a bit. I have to give the band an A for experimenting with different styles of prog metal and different tempos. It doesn't always work, but for the most part they keep it interesting. Like Aquarela has some beautiful melodies, but the lyrics and vocals are super cheesy and come across as disingenuous. Pescador is an interesting change of pace for the album. I like the flute, but it doesn't really fit well in the album. The lyrics are in Portuguese, so I asked a friend of mine who is from Brazil about the lyrics and he said they don't make a lot of sense and are pretty cheesy. Anyway, the song Puzzler reminds me a lot of something Diablo Swing Orchestra or Unexpect would do and is a cool short track. The rest of the album has both ups and downs and it's the inconsistency (and super cheesy lyrics that most of the time make no sense) that keeps this from getting a higher score. The final track, Lake of Emotions, is a 20+ minute "epic". There's a lot of good ideas here, but they don't really mesh them together very well. It feels a bit disjointed. It's not a terrible track, and the good ideas sound great while they last, but it has no business being over 20 minutes long. Condense the best ideas of the track down to about 10 minutes and now we are talking.

Overall this is a band that wears their influences on their sleeves, but tries to make something of their own to stand up with their influences. Perhaps on their next album they can accomplish this better.

7.7/10


In the Presence of Wolves - Thalassas
Romdrums
Progressive Rock
United States


First Impression - Between the Buried and Me and mid era Thrice meet at a Rush concert, then make some music.

This is exactly what I have been looking for in music, and I didn't even know it. This, along with the Blue Food album, has been one of the most fun albums I've heard in a while. They take a lot of stuff from Post-Hardcore and the type of Prog Rock/Metal that Between the Buried and Me have been doing and fuse it together in to a....I don't even know what to call it, but I like it. They have a great idea of how to write memorable melodies and guitar solos. There's a lot of great bass lines, with a very late Rush era Geddy Lee bass tone and vibe, and some Rush like guitar solos (especially in the opening track). There's even some guitar solos very reminiscent of Paul Waggoner, like the solo near the end of Hypoxia. I really think if BtBaM and Rush got together and hired a post-hardcore/emo style vocalist, this is almost exactly what it would sound like. There's a lot of variety here, but it's a consistent style, with some random outbursts of creativity. The album starts off strong, but seems to get stronger as it goes on. The music pretty much speaks for itself here, there isn't much more to say about it. It's an awesome album and will get many more listens. I also have no idea how these guys aren't more well known...

9.5/10

Post by: Puppies_On_Acid on November 12, 2018, 09:23:49 PM
OK here are the rest of round 4 results. Sorry for the delay.

Replicants - Replicants
Stadler
Alternative Rock
United States


First Impression - This is.....different? And yet, so familiar...

Wasn't expecting a covers album in my roulette. There's good news and bad news here. The good news is, some of these are actually pretty good. The bad news, the rest of them are pretty terrible. I feel like I need to go track by track here, since these are all fairly well known songs being covered.

Just What I Needed - This is a pretty good cover of a classic Cars song. This sounds like what I imagine a Nirvana cover would sound like of this song. It's performed well and stays fairly faithful to the original, but I would rather listen to the original. I like the original's vocal melodies much better.
Silly Little Love Songs - Is that someone peeing in a toilet at the beginning? Is that Maynard on vocals? Why did they choose to go Doomy Industrial for this song? So many questions? This doesn't work for me at all. The style of music doesn't work with the lyrical content. The main melody here sounds awkward in this style. Would definitely rather listen to Sir Paul's version.
Life's a Gas - Never thought I'd hear a cover of this song. I actually really like this one. I actually like this better than the original for some reason. Not sure why.
Cinnamon Girl - Worst cover of Cinnamon Girl I've ever heard. That's a little over dramatic actually, especially since it isn't that bad. The problem is once you've heard Type O Negative's version of this song, everything else pails in comparison.
How Do You Sleep? - Is this Nine Inch Nails? I haven't heard this song in many years. I don't actually remember the original all that well, was never a big fan of John Lennon's solo stuff. This is actually pretty good though. Has that cool nineties NIN vibe to it.
Destination Unknown - Is that Keanu Reaves singing in the music video for this song? I had to listen to the original song because I couldn't remember what it sounded like. I definitely like this way better. It really is a great cover. Good vibe and great reworking of an 80's semi classic.
No Good Trying - Never heard the original of this. Never liked Syd Barrett. All I can say is it's short, but other than that, pass...
Are Friends Electric - Another song I hadn't heard the original of before. This is better than the Syd Barrett cover. Has some interesting synths and a cool rhythm to it.
Dirty Work - An odd choice for a Steely Dan cover, but I guess it is one they could fit in to their mid 90's alternative post grunge sound. Of course I could also see them pulling off Rikki Don't Lose That Number. This is actually pretty good though.
The Bewlay Brothers - Wow, this one was bad. I think David Bowie is doing barrel rolls in his grave. Hard to imagine him signing off on this when this was made. ugh....no thanks. Next!
Ibiza Bar - Pink Floyd is tough to pull off for any band not named Pink Floyd in my experience. At least they didn't end up sounding like this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jj7pDNDuoJ0) (click at the peril of your ears). It's still not that good though, but then again it's once again a weird pick for a cover. I don't particularly like the original either.

Well this all adds up to a very mixed bag. 4 of the songs I really didn't like, 2 were ok, and 5 were pretty good. That totals to......

6.5/10


Andy Summers & Robert Fripp - I Advance Masked
Indiscipline
Art Rock
United Kingdom


First Impression - I am oddly aroused, yet strangely angry.

I'm not entirely sure what I expected from this, but it wasn't what I heard. I think I expected atmospheric technical wizardry in a New Wave-ish backdrop. I thought that was where it was going with the start of the first song, but there was no crescendo, no climax, no real build up to a point where the song crashes over and has a release. There's just build and more build. A constant barrage of teasing and then the song fades out......WHAT!?! I think I have musical blue balls now.

There's something to be said for 2 of rock musics most influential guitarists teaming up and not devolving in to a wank fest. They seem to come at this project as equals and at the same time know when to let the other take the lead and step back. It's good at not overwhelming you, but the album has a serious problem with satisfying me musically. I know music isn't all about the destination, but the journey. However, without a destination and/or never reaching the destination, you end up just wandering aimlessly, getting lost, and then dying of starvation in the wilderness somewhere. This is sort of how this album feels. There's tons of great ideas here; awesome King Crimson-like melodies and guitar rhythms, cool bouncy guitar riffs, nice synths, but they all go no where. The second track, Under Bridges of Silence, just ends abruptly and track 3 starts. There's no flow. China - Yellow Leader gives me basically the same feeling as the title track.

The album is somewhat saved by the run of tracks from In the Cloud Forest thru The Truth of Skies. They go more acoustic/ballady and more ambient and atmospheric. Dropping any pretense of having a build up and just playing some really gorgeous melodies. The final 3 tracks kind of follow this pattern as well. If they had opted to bring in more of a rhythm section in the offending songs or go more acoustic and ambient I think I may have appreciated the album more. It's still not as bad as I make it sound and gets a decent score, but I feel like it could have been so much more.

7/10


Brand New - The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Ariich
Emo/Post Hardcore
United States


First Impression - If Thrice were a little more whiny?

I am familiar somewhat with Brand New. My sister got really into them back when Deja Entendu came out. I remember her showing it to me and I remember not liking it. In fact I hated it (it's possible my hate stemmed from my extreme dislike for any and all screamed/harsh vocals at the time, I eventually came around). This album sounds nothing like what I remember from that one. I think it's because this one incorporates much more Indie rock influence into their brand of Emo Post Hardcore. Which is a good thing. I do have some conflicting thought on the vocals though. The singing is powerful, emotional, at times haunting, and a little bit broken, which adds to what's right with this album. Sure the guy doesn't have the greatest range or the best technical chops, but he puts his all in to it. The lyrics on the other hand I can't connect with. Perhaps when I was in high school, but not now. This isn't a huge strike against the album, in fact the vocal styles fit the lyrics well. I can appreciate that. It's just where I am at in my life, the lyrics mostly don't resonate with me.

Let's talk about what is right with this album. The music, while not technically impressive, is very well constructed and played. The melodies, while on the simpler side, work very well and are catchy to the point of some of the songs getting stuck in my head for days. I love the flow of the album too. Most of the songs flow right in to the next which makes it feel like a whole cohesive album. There's no cheap fadeouts to end songs (which I hate), no jarring transitions, and no weird cuts. All the above points are a testament to the bands song writing abilities, which are much improved from what I remember of Deja Entendu. The acoustic lighter moments of the album can be haunting and are some of my favorite bits.

Overall this a solid album without much to complain about other than the lyrics (which is more my problem than anything else). Some songs can get a little samey with chord progressions and riffs, but not often. Just a solid album with a few minor flaws.

8/10


Indukti - Idmen
Sacul
Progressive Metal
Poland


First Impression - Hey, this is pretty coo....."Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits, Hawk kills chickens, Hawk kills rabbits........................

This album started out so bloody good with the instrumental Sansara that I was totally thrown for a loop when that hawk kills chickens line came in on the song Tusan Homichi Tuvota. I was completely confused for the whole track. I'm kind of over it now. It's still a completely silly and overused line throughout the song, though. Anyways, this album as a whole really feels like Poland's answer to Orphaned Land. How they do the vocals, the instrumentation, the overall progginess. But the comparison isn't an exact one. It's like Indukti listened to a lot of Orphaned Land and decided they wanted to make music that was just as varied, just as epic, just as progressive, but with their own lyrical ideas and different instruments. The songs all flow really well from one to the next and are very linear (no verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, chorus, chorus, chorus, outro pop style writing here). The album is very engrossing and easy to get lost in, except the hawk/chicken/rabbit part, haha. The music has a great groove to it almost all the way through and everyone involved plays their parts extremely well. The drummer in particular caught my attention. This guy is a technical machine, but he makes it blend with what the rest of the band is playing effortlessly. I almost didn't notice what he was doing until I started focusing on his parts. That's just how good the rest of the music is. I think one thing this album would benefit from is a little more dynamics in the louder parts, which comes down to mixing and production.

I can see myself coming back to this album again and again. There's a lot to glean from it every time I listen to it. Lots of cool intricacies. You've sent another great album.

8.4/10


Destrage - Are You Kidding Me? No.
Elite
Progressive Metalcore
Italy


First Impression - Is it just me or does one of the songs choruses here sound similar to Bon Jovi's Raise Your Hands' verses? It's weirdly similar.

Oh goodness, this album is something else. Definitely not a band bothered to follow the norm. In fact one might say they deviate/elevate from the norm, eh eh? :neverusethis: Anyway, these guys have technicality, song writing chops, chaotic and varying vocal styles (of which all are performed well), catchy melodies that cut through the chaos, and super slick guitar solos. Those clean guitar solos they use occasionally are otherworldly. Now there are a few times where they maybe trying to be a little too technical and crazy and it ends up falling flat, but they are few and far between. They do like to try to seamlessly mash up as many genres as possible in to each song. There's the obvious progginess and metalcore, but on top of that they throw in some post hardcore, breakcore, hair metal, some twangy country/bluegrass sounding bits, southern metal, technical death metal, grindcore, parts that sound like they could be from a mid 90's video game, pop, etc, the list could go on and on. They have this poppy sensibility in most of the songs, that make them extremely catchy. As crazy as the music gets, it's all pretty memorable. As much variety as there is in the music styles and playing, there isn't much variety in tempo. It's all pretty fast and intense. They don't exactly stop to take a breath or allow the listener to either, except for Where the Things Have No Colour, which has a cool acoustic intro and takes the intensity of the album down for a bit. It's a really cool track and probably one of my favorites. The other song I need to talk about is G.O.D. This is the song that I'm referring to in the first impression. The chorus to this song sounds so similar to the verses of Raise Your Hands. It's probably just a coincidence or probably just in my head. It's mostly in the vocal melody and harmonies. Maybe this album has scrambled my brains.... :lol

Great album!

Just sent mine. There are a couple songs I wish I could've replaced with others but it's much too late already so I sent what I had.

I regret nothing if it gets a poor score relative to everyone else and I even drop several places - I fucking love what I sent because it's from the heart. :2metal:

it doesn't help that i'm particularly not in the EP-making mood at the moment because i'm trying to close out on my last music order of the year so I have enough time to get to all the 2018 albums I still want to get to  :lol even then I don't expect to be done until like mid-to-late january tbh

i might just phone it in but i'm mostly trying to stick with songs from albums i wouldn't send the full album to you from & also trying to stick to a concept and the concept part of that might end up scrapped but we shall see

Yeah everything you have sent has been instrumental so far, with Return to Forever being the best. I'm pretty hard to please with instrumental only albums. Take your time for the EP round, Parama says he needs a couple days too.

Cool, the "whiny Thrice" comment that was obviously about Brand New had me worried, but I'm glad you liked it! I do get what you're saying about the lyrics, although I don't agree. I think the lyrics deal well with issues such as loss, depression, self-worth that I'm much more attuned to as an adult than I was as an adolescent. But anyway, glad it didn't hold you back from enjoying the album overall! You might also enjoy the album after that, Daisy, which is more manic and unpredictable but has some really good stuff.

And yeah like the others I'll need a couple of days to sort an EP.

Glad to see a good score for Destrage. That album really is something else, even compared to the rest of the band's output. My personal favourite would be the title track, especially for the madness at the end, but I think the whole thing is highly enjoyable.

Also for the record, the EP round was announced on September 28th in the OP.  :neverusethis:  Personally speaking, I gave myself 3 options of themes for my EP (with a host of band options) just in case a band was used or otherwise banned.  I did all the hard work before the start of this round.   :P :P

I'll now start thinking about Concept Album round - on the chance that I should make it that far.

It's really more like 52 thousandths of a second......

Had trouble figuring the song though.

Best I can come up with is Time Waits For No One, which (Waits For No One) is parenthtical.

 :huh: It's an EP round.  Concept album round is later.  I've always been planning for more flow/cohesion in THAT round - if I even make it that far.
Title: Re: Puppies Crazy Album Roulette (EP Hangmemememe Part A & B Live!!)
Post by: Cyril on November 18, 2018, 09:43:03 AM
EP round rules
- Minimum of 3 songs
- Minimum of 20 minutes. Maximum of 40 minutes
- It is an open round, so no theme, but I would recommend coming up with some kind of theme (lyrical content, style, genre, etc.) for your EP, this could help with flow/cohesiveness
- The EP must contain at least 3 different artists and can not contain more that 2 songs per artist
- each EP will be scored on a 20 point scale
- flow/cohesiveness will be taken in to account and can net you up to an additional 5 points
- The EP containing my favorite song will get 1 additional point
- There will be an additional half point for creativeness of your EP's title

I should make that my signature... that or the one where Jingle said he no longer feels "filthy" when he agrees with me.  :)

In any event, the comment was because I think every one of my songs in this round was first attributed to Indiscipline.

with what you two both send in roulettes though there is a lot less perceived variation :P

I'm honoured. As long as my wife doesn't call me Stads during intimity it's all peachy.

Seriously, we're both victims of social profiling by hip music users, and I reckon both our extensive record collections don't extend past the Clinton administration.  :D

I'm kidding, I'm not too fond of growls either.

That being said, there are six songs on my EP: five have growls, the sixth is an instrumental.

My EP has 5 songs and 3 of them have growls
I think each song is progressively less heavy than the last save for the one interlude track I included (which worked disgustingly well as a transition into the song that follows it)

Oh c'mon... previous rounds were 12 full albums.  So now that there's 20(ish) less minutes per submission, that should shorten the round by a commensurate 33%.

personally i feel judging EPs is harder than judging albums because instead of considering a lot of songs all from one artist that are going to have some commonality between them you're judging upwards of 5 songs by a lot of different artists & as well the artistic expression of the sender is going to factor in as well

with albums I don't bother to judge songs individually but with EPs I definitely would & that would slow things down a bit for me, which is why I'm not planning to do too many rounds in my upcoming EP roulette (as well as that it takes a lot more effort for a player to put together a 40 minute EP than it does for them to go "lol here's a 60 minute album enjoy")

Wait, the writeups are coming soon already? I'm going to reveal my EP then! Enjoy this unedited slab of cheese:

Hey!

I didn't have much time or willpower to do something big, and anyway, I already did one of those for you, so this time I'm taking a different approach, and instead of doing the whole big writeup of a story, I'm going to give you a blurb of a story, like they do on the back cover for books. You can follow the EP story with that blurb and interpret it as you will. I'll do a short explanation about which track is related to what, too.

First off, and this is important, I did the whole file with transitions in Audacity with mp3 320 kpbs files, and then I exported it as also mp3 320 kbps, so it could be overcompressed somehow I guess? I'll also include the Spotify link for you to check out the music quality in case it was somehow lowered during my tampering with it.

Second, I hope nothing is banned. Rewriting the story and the EP structure is going to be a lot of pain.

Third, the EP structure is somewhat unconventional. I was aiming at something like Winter's Gate, where it could possibly be taken as one song, which kinda didn't work, but still. I already gave you a standard EP (opener - awesome song - ballad - closing epic), so this time I tried a different approach.

Now, regarding the tracks (you should probably read this after the writeup): the first two tracks are setting up the Stone's Reach champion and general layout and mood in the city. The third track is obviously his opponent's theme. The fourth track signifies the day when the battle commences, as both champions see and interact with each other (growls / clean vocals). The fifth track is the story of Skein's journey from the beginning to the end as the stakes are rising higher and higher. The final track is the aftermath of the battle.

I'm deliberately not going to explain my ideas for the plot and how I think the story ends. It's up for you to decide the endings of all three character arcs and the main plot for yourself. Take from the music whatever you think it means.

(It's absolutely pretentious too, as you asked. Just in different format now!)

Okay, here we go. Don't forget, it's a book blurb format.

Reach Out for the Skies


The endless war between Stone’s Reach and the Kingdom of Countless Skies has been going on for centuries.

The Kingdom of Countless Skies has something that the rulers and people of Stone’s Reach were always envious about. The means to escape the neverending darkness, which surrounds the cracked, dying land for miles and miles around the Reach. The means to get to the surface and build their empire there, under the open, welcoming sky. The means to fly. Exhausted from years of endless fighting, resources depleted and population lowered to alarming numbers, the Kingdom resorts to one last desperate measure to win the war, agreeing to determine the victor in a fated duel.

Be’lakor, or the Venator, as he’s been known for the last few hundred years, is the Stone’s Reach chosen champion. Considered immortal and utterly merciless, he’s been sowing death on the battlefields, reaping lives with his scythe as black as night. A dark wizard of immense power and magical prowess, he has a secret to his immortality, locked away in an arcane artifact, hidden away from the world. Not a living soul can stand the ground against him. Yet somewhere deep down, the spark of warmth still flickers inside the hollowness of his soul.

The Kingdom of Countless Skies chooses Ocaso as their champion. The rumors hold that she rides the winds in the falling shade of twilight, and come night, converses with the stars and moon itself. The people call her Ocaso, Whom the Moon a Nightsong Sings. Everyone knows her chances against the Venator are grim, yet a glimmer of hope remains in people’s hearts. As the day of the final battle draws closer, Ocaso prepares to face the impossible challenge for the lives of all the people of her kingdom—and her own family.

Yet still, the Broken Gods, as powerless as they are now, aren’t going to allow such injustice to happen. Determined to balance the scales, they establish a dreamlink with Skein, the only person in the Kingdom of Countless Skies who didn’t develop the ability to fly. Skein, a man of a few words, has been considered an outsider for all his life in the Kingdom. He accepts the Gods’ task and gift, seeing the chance to prove his worth to the skies and, most importantly, to himself. With the Magician’s Judge—the rapier designed to destroy the arcane-infused items—he sets on a journey to the enemy’s lands to abolish the source of the Venator’s immortality. But with each passing hour, his time is running out.

Watch the three threads of fate intertwine in this tale of courage, sacrifice, and hope, as the future of two kingdoms is to be decided. And when the day of final battle comes, and the new dawn rises on a distant horizon upon the land, two champions will clash their weapons under the watchful gaze of the countless skies.

Part 1 EP Results

Experiments In Groove and Impossible Combinations
Elite


1. Fair to Midland - Dance of the Manatee (from 'Fables From A Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True', 2007)
2. Cardiacs - Eat it Up Worms Hero (from 'Sing to God', 1996)
3. Dagoba - Face the Colossus (from 'Face the Colossus', 2008)
4. Blood Stain Child - Stargazer (from 'Epsilon', 2011)
5. Mechanical Poet - Bogie in a Coal Hole (from 'Woodland Prattlers', 2004)
6. Dagoba - The Crash (from 'Face the Colossus', 2008)
7. Enochian Theory - The Fire Around the Lotus (from 'Evolution: Creatio Ex Nihilio', 2009)


This EP starts off quick and excellently with Dance of the Manatee. With catchy singing and great use of multiple vocal styles, it keeps the song interesting and a fun one to come back to again and again. I have heard Fair to Midland before, but just random songs here and there. This song does sound familiar, so i may have heard it before, but I didn't remember most of it. This is easily the best song on the EP in my opinion. Next is Cardiacs.....again.....ugh....I will say this song is light years better than any song on the Cardiacs album I was sent in the first round. The instrumentation is much more interesting. There's also a fair amount of differing vocal styles here. My problem with this is everything is used in the wrong places. You have vocal styles that don't mix well with the music or vice-versa. Thankfully it's short. Next is Dagoba's Face the Colossus, which is some sort of Industrial influenced Groove metal. I'm not a big fan of either of those genres. Bands in those realms all tend to sound the same, have the same vocals, the same guitar riffing, etc. There is some pretty cool lead guitar stuff, but it only shows up rarely. The Blood Stain Child song was a fun match up of Metal and Trance, so Trance Metal. It's cheesy as hell, but a fun and bouncy listen, at least. It kind of makes you want to dance. The vocalist isn't the greatest (she sounds a little bored), but she gets the job done. I don't think I could listen to a whole album of this, but this song works well. The Mechanical Poet song reminds me of another band, but I cant quite put my finger on it. The song is musically ok, but I don't like the vocalist very much. He can take a hike. There's some interesting use of different time signatures that sound pretty cool, but overall the song feels kind of lackluster. We get another Dagoba song next, see my comments above, nothing is really changed here except there isn't really any interesting lead guitar parts. It definitely doesn't have any business being almost 7 minutes long...The last song from Enochian Theory start off really well, with some great violin and clean vocals, but things go downhill from there. The harsh vocals aren't good and the pacing has all kinds of issues. Again, another song that overstays it's welcome.

The flow of this EP actually works decently well, even though you have a varying amount of styles of metal here, some good some bad. You did a fairly good job of stitching most of the songs together too.

13.2 (EP Score) + 3 (flow score) = 16.2 total


The Adversary
Ariich


1. Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - A Hymn To The Morning Star
2. Dissona - Outside the Skin
3. Ghost Brigade - Departures
4. Dog Fashion Disco - End of the Road
5. Dissona - Totality


I'll come out and say it, this EP is one of the most coherent story-wise I have received in either of my roulette's. Although I think the story can be interpreted slightly different than how you did in the PM you sent me. I took it more as the main character being, not necessarily the antagonist, but one who was woefully deceived by his own thinking. Especially towards the end of the EP. He is struck with an illness because he became the adversary. He basically declared war on the god he once served and was struck down for it. Either way it's a pretty dark story, how ever you want to interpret it and in the end it all fits lyrically.

On to the music and individual songs. The songs all flow extremely well. I almost didn't notice the first transition on my first listen it was so smooth. Those first two songs are so good and work really well together, even though they have a very different feel to them. Sleepytime Gorilla Museum sounds like they have quite a bit of an eclectic sound and fit in to the experimental/avant-garde realm of music. This song really helps set the dark mood of the EP. The next transition in to Departures is also very good. Unfortunately this song doesn't quite live up to the quality of the first two. To me it ends up sounding a little too much like generic rock music throughout most of the song. End of the Road picks up the quality again. This song goes through quite a few changes. It starts with a cool folky/bluegrass vibe, which transitions super smoothly in to a jazzy noir-like tune. The second half goes to a more sludge/stoner metal vibe. This is definitely a band that I want to look in to further. The EP ends with Totality, which is a fitting end to the EP. It gives closure to the story and actually works well musically as a closer. It has an epic vibe to it.

As far as flow goes, this EP is up there. Considering how the lyrics of each song ties together so nicely and how the songs all flow from one to the next seamlessly, I cant give this anything but high marks on flow.

15.2 (ep score) + 5 (flow points) = 20.2 total


Reach Out for the Skies
Evermind


1. Be'lakor - Venator
2. Be'lakor - From Scythe to Sceptre
3. Bauda - Ocaso
4. Countless Skies - Daybreak
5. Skein - Rapier
6. Countless Skies - Wanderer


Even though you say you didn't put as much in to this EP as you did the last one you sent me, this is still top notch stuff. The write up you did in book blurb form was cool. It sounds like a book I would like to read (better get started writing, I expect a full novel by the end of next year :D).

This EP begins with 2 Belakor songs which, being back to back songs on the same album, flow well, even though they are 2 very distinct songs. Venator sets up the EP both story wise and musically. It's a great Melodic Death Metal track. From Scythe to Scepter continues the Melodeath goodness. There's even some Pop sensibilities here, which makes the songs catchy and memorable. There's some definite Opeth and Insomnium vibes too. I think I have found a new Melodic Death Metal band to dig in to after this roulette is over. Ocaso works as a great interlude track. I really like the flute along with the acoustic guitar. It's a cool atmospheric little track and a nice breather from the Metal before and after it. The first of two Countless Skies songs is next with Daybreak. The lyrics are a little corny, but the music more than makes up for it. There's a cool underlying rhythm in the song that just works for me. I also like the variation of clean and harsh vocals, even though neither is technically very good, but work well enough for the song. They also pack a lot of cool ideas in to the song. The acoustic bit that starts a about the halfway part in to the subsequent guitar solo is really reminiscent of Agalloch. The Skein song is probably the most different from everything else on the EP. It's very ballad like in the beginning. The lyrics work well with the story. The song slowly builds up and starts to take on a more alternative rock/post hardcore/emo sound. The song finally crescendos in the last couple minutes and takes on a fairly majestic almost triumphant tone, but at the same time bittersweet. I like the way this song flows in to the final track, Wanderer. This wraps up the story. I feel like it's almost a twist ending. I kind of have an idea in my head of how it all plays out, but it would take me way too long to type it all out here. Anyway, this song is really good. I like both the heavy and lighter parts. The way the song flows from one section to the next. The lyrics are really good, especially compared to the other Countless Skies song here, they are just vague enough to let the listener decide how the story ends.

The flow is mostly really good. The production is just different enough between artists to be noticeable though, which can be a little jarring. Nothing too bad though. The story works, with lyrics just vague enough to be interpreted in a variety of ways.

Alright, that was it for me then....

The initial draft of the EP contained two Fair to Midland songs and one song by Dagoba (the first one). Maybe I should have sent that, thiugh I don’t think it wiuld have saved me. You might actually like the FtM album, so there’s that.

Cool, glad you liked it! To respond to a few specifics:

I'll come out and say it, this EP is one of the most coherent story-wise I have received in either of my roulette's. Although I think the story can be interpreted slightly different than how you did in the PM you sent me. I took it more as the main character being, not necessarily the antagonist, but one who was woefully deceived by his own thinking. Especially towards the end of the EP. He is struck with an illness because he became the adversary. He basically declared war on the god he once served and was struck down for it. Either way it's a pretty dark story, how ever you want to interpret it and in the end it all fits lyrically.
I don't think that's different to what I articulated and in fact I intentionally wanted to leave it open to interpretation (mainly because as an agnostic I don't naturally come down on any strong view myself regarding religion, crisis of faith etc). My narrative was meant to just about what is going on in the character's thoughts/feelings. But I'm really glad the concept worked well enough that you wanted to interpret it further, which is super pleasing!

Quote
On to the music and individual songs. The songs all flow extremely well. I almost didn't notice the first transition on my first listen it was so smooth. Those first two songs are so good and work really well together, even though they have a very different feel to them.
Awesome, yeah I don't think anything will top my Insomnium/Amorphis transition in my EP for Elite's roulette, but I was pleased with this one as the two tracks lent themselves well to it.

Quote
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum sounds like they have quite a bit of an eclectic sound and fit in to the experimental/avant-garde realm of music.
Definitely, which is why everyone thought the other Rich sent it. If I'm honest a lot of their stuff is pretty out there, more so than I'd normally dig, but this particular album is fantastic and I can't really explain why.

Quote
The next transition in to Departures is also very good. Unfortunately this song doesn't quite live up to the quality of the first two. To me it ends up sounding a little too much like generic rock music throughout most of the song.
For sure, I thought you might find this one less interesting (although I do think you'll probably enjoy the band), but I wanted to include it because 1. it fit the narrative really well, and 2. I still love it.

Quote
End of the Road picks up the quality again. This song goes through quite a few changes. It starts with a cool folky/bluegrass vibe, which transitions super smoothly in to a jazzy noir-like tune. The second half goes to a more sludge/stoner metal vibe. This is definitely a band that I want to look in to further.
Yeah Dog Fashion Disco are pretty quirky too (again why people thought Elite sent it). Hard to say how much you'll like them but I think they're rather excellent. All their albums from Committed to a Bright Future onwards are really solid (except Experiments in Embryos which is reworkings of older songs as isn't that interesting).

EP Results Part 2

I Want You To Hurt Like I Do - An Aural Bandage for a Wounded Heart
Kattelox


1. Randy Newman - I Want You To Hurt Like I Do
2. Chroma Key - Another Permanent Address
3. Randy Newman - I Think It's Going To Rain Today
4. Kings of Leon - Pyro
5. Sonata Arctica - Shamandalie
6. Sonata Arctica - Paid In Full
7. Tom Waits - Martha


I have very mixed feelings about this EP. There are songs I really like and ones I really don't. Then there's a couple that there was 1 or 2 aspects that I thought were terrible when the rest of the song was really good.

It start with Randy Newman (I usually always think about the Family Guy parody of him when I see his name). I Want You To Hurt Like I Do is a pretty messed up song. The lyrics make him sound like a sociopath. I like the music and melodies, but the lyrics make me cringe a bit. Another Permanent Address picks up the EP though. I am somewhat familiar with Chroma Key. I've heard a few songs here and there. I've always like Kevin Moore's style of vocals. They are especially fitting with the type of music he does. The lyrics are really interesting too. If this EP is intended to be a story about a guy who left his wife and kids (which I think it is), this song works really well following the Randy Newman song. He seems to be wandering aimlessly not sure what to do with himself after leaving. It's a good song. I Think It's Going To Rain Today is next. This song has problems. The lyrics are pretty good, but the vocals are not. The musical ideas are good, but the execution and production is terrible. This continues the story with the guy feeling depression coming over him. I like the Kings of Leon song that's next. I've always enjoyed what this band does (the few songs I've heard). They have a unique style and unique vocals. This carries the story forward with the guy snapping and basically turning in to an emotionless person. Which I guess is fitting since we established the guy is a sociopath in the first song. The two Sonata Arctica songs work really well fleshing out the story that I've been making of this. Lyrically they are both really good, especially for a power metal band. They show why our "protagonist" ended things with his wife and then him coming to accept his life since that day many years later. I was confused by the last part of Shamandalie at first. It completely destroyed the flow, but then I remembered what you wrote in your PM you sent to ignore the last third of the song, since it's some kind of bonus song thing (gotta edit that stuff out in Audacity :P). Paid in Full is the most upbeat song on the EP. The music is a little repetitive, but it's a decent song overall. The Tom Waits song has our protagonist trying to reconnect with his former wife decades later. I don't get Tim Waits. I like the lyrics and piano, but the dude cant sing and I don't like his style of singing.

The flow sort of works here. The songs all do interconnect in to a story. Even if it's mostly fabricated in my mind :lol The second Sonata Arctica song doesn't quite fit stylistically to me. Randy Newman mostly doesn't work for me. I get what you were trying to do with the EP, it just kind of fell a little flat for me.

13 (EP Score) + 2.5 (Flow Score) = 15.5 Total


No Wonder I Am Focked Up
Indiscipline

1. Ronnie Montrose - Town without Pity
2. Funkadelic - Who Says a Funk Band Can't Play Rock!
3. Brand X - Earth Dance
4. UK - In The Dead of Night
5. Area - Il Bandito del Deserto
6. Rory Gallagher - Overnight Bag
7. Gary Moore - Parisienne Walkaways


Having gone with songs exclusively from your birth year, this is a lot of old school Rock, with some jaunts over in to some prog. I suspect you might have selected different songs if the bands hadn't been on my banned list, but what is here is actually quite intriguing. The on;y band here that I know I've heard before is UK. I have their other album the one with Terry Bozzio on drums. I've heard of Montrose and Gary Moore, but I couldn't tell you if I've heard one of their songs.

The Montrose song is a cool guitar led instrumental and works as a great intro (you really like those instrumentals). Funkadelic comes in and is a groovy funky Funk-Rock song. The guitarist (whoever he is) is just going off the entire song, just soloing the crap out of the whole 6 minutes basically. The underlying rhythm sections don't really deviate much, which may be the only bad part of the song. The lyrics do tend to get a bit repetitive, but that can be overlooked here. The Brand X song is up next and we are back to more Jazz Fusion. So this is what Phil Collins was doing outside of Genesis. I had no idea. That drum groove throughout the song is quite infectious and groovy as hell. Lots of other percussion all over this track as well. The bass player definitely tries to keep up. He's laying down some nice bass licks. I really like the UK song here and it's much more enjoyable than a lot of the stuff on their other album. I think a lot of that has to do with Bill Bruford (who makes another return in this roulette along with John Wetton, last roulette it was Michael Kiske who kept rearing his ugly head :lol). I enjoy Bruford's style so much more than Bozzio's. Bill Bruford and Neil Peart were the two drummers that made me want to start playing drums over 20 years ago. The Area song sure is something. It's got a cool groove. That bass line is soooo goooood. The vocals are not really my thing though. Thankfully they don't take up much space in the song. It's mostly a cool instrumental song with lots of layers and instruments. I like when bands throw in tons of instruments and is able to make it sound coherent. Overnight Bag is a change of pace with some Bluesy Rock. There's a lot of recurring musicians between submissions. You have Ted McKenna on drums here, who is also the drummer on the MSG song Stadler sent. I have a love/hate relationship with Blues rock. This falls on the love side. It's a great song. To wrap things up we have Gary Moore, with a slower more delicate bluesy ballad. You have the crying guitar solos and some great atmosphere created by the keyboards. I don't like the fade out at the end, I don't get any closure to finish out the EP.

Overall it's a good EP with many things to enjoy and a few things that I don't like. The flow is pretty good from song to song. The one thing that bothered me throughout the entire EP was the sound quality. I listened to a few of the individual tracks on Google Music and the sound quality is way better. Something must have happened when you did some editing and converted this to a single track.

14.6 (EP Score) + 3.5 (Flow Score) = 18.1 Total


It's Deja Vu All Over Again
Jingle


Primal Fear - Unbreakable (Part 1)
Eden's Curse - Unbreakable
Masqued - Broken
InnerWish - Broken
Hardline - Human Nature
Manimal - Human Nature
Hemina - Soulmates
Nation Beyond - Soulmates


This is an interesting concept and a Yogi Berra quote for the EP title.

I like the idea of using a specifically made intro track for an EP, such as Unbreakable (Part 1). Unfortunately it doesn't quite flow in to Unbreakable (Eden's Curse). No matter the Eden's Curse song is good. It's a cool faster tempo, upbeat, major chord, Heavy metal song. It's got fun sing along parts, good guitar solos, and a cool guitar rhythm. This actually flows really well in to Broken by Masqued, which is a more Symphonic leaning Metal track. There are a lot of problems with this song. I don't particularly like either the male or female vocals here. The lyrics are kind of lame. For the most part the instrumentation is pretty good, but the song as a whole just doesn't work very well for me. The Innerwish song is much better, with some good Power Metal. The vocalist kind of sounds like Russell Allen at times and maybe a bit of Tom Englund. He doesn't seem to have the same range as Allen though, but his voice is still enjoyable. The song is actually fairly straight forward Power Metal, but it's well written with lyrics that fit the mood of the music. Next are the two Human Nature songs by Hardline and Manimal respectively. The Hardline song is a very enjoyable ballad-like Hard Rock song. Kind of similar to what Journey does. The guitar solo is short, but sweet. Manimals song is more Heavy Metal with some Power and Prog leanings. The vocalist is like the love child of Dio and Geoff Tate. He definitely gets those early Queensryche soaring screams down pat. There's lots to like here besides the vocals too. The guitar riffing is really good. There's some great solos. The whole attitude of the song is perfect too. This is definitely the opposite end of the spectrum from the Hardline song. Then we get Soulmates by Hemina, which starts off back towards the more ballady end of the spectrum. I really like the duet vocals here, both do a great job and the lyrics are actually fairly touching. I like these emotionally engaging type of songs. Especially when the vocalists can make it sound convincing. There's even a fantastic harmonized guitar solo with what sounds like keyboards? It has an interesting effect in there that sounds cool. Nation Beyond's Soulmates is the closer here. Another ballad-like duet. This one leaning more in the power metal end. This one also has really good lyrics and singing. This one I actually like the singing more than the Hemina song. The problem with this song is the production. It sounds terrible. I thought maybe the Google Music version was messed up, but I listened to it from other sources and they are all the same. It's way too "hot" and brickwalled, especially in the heavier sections. It becomes fatiguing to listen to. I actually think the flow would have been better if you swapped the two Soulmates songs.

Overall this is one of the EP's that was a real grower. It started out toward the bottom of the ranking, but slowly climbed its way up. The flow is going to take a bit of a hit here, mostly because there are some hard cuts and awkward transitions. The lyrics all seems to fit though and the theme is definitely unique as far as the whole EP round goes. The Masqued song hurt your score the most, but it's still a great EP.

Totally fair comments.  Can't argue with the 'flow' marks - I don't have the skills or software to fade in/out, and/or trim music files to make the transitions smoother.  They were what they were.  I was focusing more on the theme, and good quality music.  I'll gladly take 16.4 on the songs themselves.

I am sorry about sound quality. I must have forgotten to select  320kbs when I finalised the file, and AcidPro (I'm the Encino Man, remember?) has probably operated on its default shitty rate for mp3s.

Some trivia related to things you pointed out: 1) I think Collins was already gone from Brand X in '78, but I wouldn't bet the house on it. 2) Area has been a really unique act, you may find things never heard before if you take the time to check their opus (the singer, Demetrio Stratus, was able to perform biphonia, i.e. singing two different notes almost at the same time). 3) Allan Holdsworth's solo in the UK tune is basically Trial of Tears's solo 20 years before.

Since no one bit, Chuck Burgi stepped into Rainbow, a seat formerly held by Cozy Powell (though Bobby Rondinelli was in between) and  later stepped into Billy Joel's band (where he is now, I believe), a seat formerly held by long-time Joel cohort Liberty DeVito.

I can confirm Chuck is currently in Billy's Band. By the way, Liberty was one of the greatest "stage presence" drummers to ever grace the stage (and a workhorse in the studio).

I meant to bite, but I didn't figure Bobby Rondinelli as an A List drummer.

I thought Burgi was also in another major artist's band. I didn't think it was Billy Joel..

EP Results Part 3

Exodus Into the Spiraling Eternity
Parama


Letters From the Colony - Galax
Eryn Non Dae. - Chrysalis
Hannes Grossmann - The Radial Covenant I, II
Burial in the Sky - Nexus
Tetrafusion - Perfect Silence


So there were a few of these bands I was really looking forward to hearing for the first time. Eryn Non Dae, Hannes Grossmann, and Tetrafusion. One did almost nothing for me, one was bizarrely constructed and I ended up thinking about everything that was wrong with it, and one was actually really good. Overall I like the story line you have created here. I always enjoy a good sci-fi, space romp. The flow from song to song and the general feel of the songs also worked really well for me too.

So the problem songs were Chrysalis and Perfect Silence (probably not what you wanted to hear). I'll talk about Chrysalis first, since it comes up first in the EP. This song even after about 6 or 7 listens still remains completely unmemorable to me. There is nothing there that grabs my attention, nothing catchy to pull me in. I could be very alone in this sentiment, but as one of your fellow roulette participants would say, TASTES! The song is just kind of there, but doesn't make its presence known in any unique or standout way. Tetrafusion was actually the most frustrating for me. I can hear and understand the technical aspect of what they were doing, but to me it was executed so poorly that it completely took me out of enjoyment mode and in to overly critical mode. It seemed like every part of this song either had what sounded like one of the instruments playing a completely different rhythm or time signature or tempo that the rest of the band, or just plain playing the wrong notes for the section, or the whole band is trying to play a rhythm and time signature so obscure and overly complicated that it ends up sounding like a complete mess. After a few listens I didn't want to hear it anymore.

So what's right? Well Galax starts the EP off with a bang. At first I didn't like the overly djenty first half of the song, but it grew on me the more I listened to it. Plus the second half is absolutely amazing. It's a perfect EP opener. The Hannes Grossman song is also an amazing song. It definitely picks up the EP after the disappointment of Chrysalis. And you are right it basically sounds like an Alkaloid song (which both makes sense and is a very good thing). This flows perfectly in to Nexus, which is a brilliant segue piece that also flow perfectly in to the beginning of Perfect Silence of which I actually enjoyed the first minute.

So to recap the Flow here is almost top notch, but not all the songs work for me. I like the story, but I get ripped out of my enjoyment of it by two bad songs.

13.2 (EP Score) + 4.5 (Flow Score) = 17.7 Total


Shining The Focus on Our Infatuation with Christ Sized Shoes
Romdrums


Intersphere-Relations in the Unseen
Shiner- Christ Sized Shoes
Vennart- Infatuate
Birds of Tokyo- Circles
Strata- Cocaine (We're All Going to Hell)
Chavez- Our Boys Will Shine Tonight
Failure- The Focus
Intersphere- Tear Down the Walls
Sleep Parade- Inside Out


So you took a different approach to the EP that everyone else. You went for a particular instrument sound and tried to match that from song to song, which I think turned out brilliant. I was a little skeptical reading the description you sent with the EP, but I ended up enjoying the flow and how easily all the songs seemed to belong together. It actually kind of reminded me of those CD samplers you would get from music magazines back in the day.

This kicks off with a great, fun drumming song with The Intersphere's Relations in the Unseen. The song is pretty damn catchy too, with just enough of a proggy instrumentation to keep it interesting and at 3 and a half minutes it doesn't overstay it's welcome. This rolls in to Christ Sized Shoes, which sounds a lot like the 90's love child of the Foo Fighters and Tool. This made even more sense to me after I looked up the band and saw the album came out in 1997 and is classified as Math Rock influenced Alternative Rock. This sounds like an album I need to get. Those drums are awesome. Next is Vennart's Infatuate. I'm definitely familiar with Mike Vennart since I'm a huge fan of Oceansize. I think I listened to this album once when it came out back in 2015, but it didn't really resonate with me. At the time I think I was looking for Oceansize 2.0 and was disappointed it didn't end up like that. To be honest this has some Oceansizisms (new word!), but it takes on an identity of it's own. I've always liked Vennart's voice and the post-rock-like guitar playing. The only thing I don't care too much for is the keyboard patches used here and they are pretty prevalent. The Birds of Tokyo song has a really nice guitar melody and the enjoyable vocals of Ian Kenny, whom I had no idea he was in another band or that this was his main band. As nice as this song is and as beautiful as that melody is, I still think I prefer Karnivool, I don't know if I'd want a full album of stuff like this. It's not a bad song by any means though. The Strata song is possibly the most different of the bunch (except the closing track, but we'll get to that). It starts with an almost reggae rock like vibe, but quickly morphs in to a more alt rock number with an almost emo-post-hardcore like sound. This song is catchy, but has it's issues. The vocals aren't anything to write home about and the song feels like it overstays it's welcome even though it's less than 4 minutes. Chavez sounds like a 90's Indie Rock band. They share some similarities, at least musically, with Dinosaur Jr. Then again Dinosaur Jr had a lot of different sounds that they utilized and tried throughout the years, so it's not really a stretch to compare almost any band with them :lol but the vocals in places do remind me of J Mascis. When the Failure song came on the first time I thought it was Burning Brides. The vocalist and the guitar tone sounds very similar to Dimitri Coats. This is actually a good thing. I love that type of hard rock sound. Is this the band that A Perfect Circle did a cover of The Nurse Who Loved Me? I think I remember reading somewhere that was a Failure song. This also sounds a lot like that Replicants album Stadler sent me earlier. The next Intersphere song sounds a bit rawer and less refined that the first, but at the same time a bit more experimental. It still has some cool guitar licks and drums. That bit where the song breaks down and then ramps back up to the finale is so tasty. Relations in the Unseen is the better of the two though. Inside/Out is a whole other beast. Stylistically it's not very similar to the rest of the songs here, but that's ok. Your comment of it being somewhat Space-Dye Vest-like is pretty spot on. It starts off mellow with nice vocal melodies, but it keeps building and building until it climaxes and then gently ends the EP with that nice thick fuzzy bass tone and a jazzy drum beat.

I think overall the flow of this wasn't really about how the songs seamlessly moved from one to the next, but more about how everything just felt like it belonged. My least favorite song was the Vennart song, but I think I'm still just salty that Oceansize is no more :( Great EP though.

16.1 (EP Score) + 4 (Flow Score) = 20.1 Total


Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
Lethean


Agent Fresco - See Hell
Enchant - At Death's Door (bonus point song)
Sound of Contact - Pale Blue Dot
Votum - Horizontal
Votum - Vertical
Eniac Requim - Endless Cosmos
Eldritch - Bleed Mask Bleed


Interesting concept for the EP. The song's don't really tie together, it's more the songs tie to particular aspects of the title. Having said that there isn't anything here that feels out of place.

The EP starts with See Hell. I got an Agent Fresco song in my last roulette, but I didn't like it anywhere near as much as this one. The Haken similarities are very strong here and work well. I like the vocal melodies a lot, with the exception of how he pronounces the word hell the majority of the time, small criticism. Otherwise it's a really good song. The next song is At Death's Door, which I really feel should have closed out the EP. This song is a hell of a song. I've only ever checked out 1 Enchant album, Tug of War, which I thought was good, not great, but this song easily eclipses anything on that album. Where has this been my whole life? I pick up a lot of similarities to Rush, especially in the way they do their instrumental breaks, the guitar tone in the leads, and the drum work. Has some really cool atmosphere and build ups and releases. The vocals are top notch, as always from Ted Leonard. Fantastic song! I even don't mind the fade out at the end I like this song so much. This earns the bonus half point and the extra point for my favorite song of the EP round. The rest of the EP isn't as good, another reason that song should have been last :P. Not to say it's bad though. With Pale Blue Dot being another good song. I heard a couple of songs from this album when it first came out, but I don't really remember any of it. I do know this was put together by Simon Collins, Kelly Nordstrom, and Dave Kerzner. I'm a big fan of Dave Kerzner's solo stuff in particular. I don't know if Simon is as good of a drummer as his dad was in his heyday, but he is definitely no slouch. This song is pretty catchy though, with it's chorus. Overall a good song. The two Votum songs are a change of pace with some more Atmospheric Prog Metal. These two songs are fairly decent, but I cant help but think there are other bands that do this style better. The first band that came to mind was Katatonia, maybe mixed with a bit of Riverside and Arcane. The vocals especially take a lot of cues from Katatonia. I think I like Vertical more than Horizontal just slightly. It has a little better dynamics and takes more influence from bands like Porcupine Tree and Anathema. Endless Cosmos is a song from a band I had never heard of before. This song is an interesting blend of Prog Rock and Metal. I like the riffage used throughout and the vocal melodies and harmonies. It continues with the more Atmospheric trend of the Votum songs although it fits more stylistically with the Enchant song, and is almost as good. That guitar solo in the second half.....wow! Love it. The last track is Bleed Mask Bleed, which basically destroys the flow the EP had going for it. Stylistically it doesn't fit and it's way too cheesy in comparison to the other songs here. You probably would have scored even higher if you left this song off completely and ended the EP with Enchant. It's not a bad song, it just doesn't belong here, in my opinion.

Speaking of flow, the EP flows really well until the very end. Overall this is still a great EP.

Wow!  I'm pretty surprised (in a good way) by how my EP did.  Although now I'm thinking I should have saved that Enchant album to send on its own.  At Death's Door is in the middle of the album so I didn't think it would be much of an issue to put it in the middle of the EP, though when others were talking about editing files and stuff I did think that it might be good to edit that fade out a little.  I agree that Votum is not as good as Katatonia, but then no one is, so there's that. :)  That Eniac Requiem song is really cool, and so is the whole album.  I think it was just a one off kind of thing though - I don't think they ever did anything else.  Eldritch - I love that song and wanted to end with something a little heavier; it didn't feel jarring to me when I played the whole thing, but I do see where you're coming from.

EP Results Part 4
Time to find out who lives......and who dies.....

DACUL'S SLOW AND LAZY ASS STILL MANAGED TO PUT TOGETHER THIS COLLECTION OF SONGS FOR HANGMENENG NOW GIMME THE D (aka The Jolly EP)
Sacul


Kendrick Lamar - King Kuta
Sufjan Stevens - Chicago
Talk Talk - Desire
Talk Talk - Time It's Time
Sufjan Stevens - 4th of July - Live


This is a weird EP. I'm not entirely sure how it all is supposed to fit together.

First of all, I still don't like Kendrick Lamar. He was sent in my last roulette and I hated that song. This one is better than that one, but I don't like his rapping style. The underlying music to the song is decent enough, but he just annoys me. Then there's the fact that this song sticks out on the EP like a skyscraper in Hill City, Kansas. I suppose it is catchy though. The more I hear from Sufjan Stevens the more of a mixed bag he is. I have a number of friends that really like him, like almost religiously so. I mean they almost bit my head off and gave me the most incredulous look when I asked them how the hell you are supposed to pronounce his first name. I mean what kind of name is that? And how the hell was I expected to know how to pronounce it? They all have bad taste in music though :\ Anyway, this song Chicago song doesn't really seem like anything special. The whole thing is pretty repetitive from the music to the lyrics and the song goes on for about 3 minutes too long. I mean, there's nothing on it blatantly annoying or off putting, I just don't see why this guy gets so much praise. On to Talk Talk. This vocalist sounds like he's singing with a mouth full of mashed potatoes..... I can hardly understand anything he's singing. Which is annoying and takes away from the really wonderful music they've created for these songs, especially on Desire. The build up of music in the first half is nothing short of brilliant. Fortunately he doesn't sing very much on the song. I cant help but think if Fish or Steve Hogarth were singing on this it would be 10 times better. The Time it's Time song has a lot more of an 80's groove to it, but the music is still fairly captivating. Unfortunately he sings more on this song. At least he sings better on this one too. If only this band were more self aware of the vocals....They have tons of great musical ideas and a good atmosphere to their music, spoiled by the vocals. Ok, so 4th of July. This song is quite the depressing ending. I don't necessarily mean that in a bad way. The song is quite emotional. It's also a much more engaging song than Chicago, even in it's simplicity. This kind of stuff I get, but you really have to be in the right frame of mind to really enjoy it.

Overall this is a very mixed bag. There's parts of songs I like, then songs that I very much dislike. Then there's 4th of July, which is the best song here. The flow is a mixed bag too.

12.9 (EP Score) + 2.5 (Flow Score) = 15.4 Total


STOP THE CLOCKS!
Stadler


The Road's Too Long - Cinderella
Time Waits (For No One) - Michael Schenker Group
I'm Outta Time - Oasis
Hourglass - Squeeze
Time Passes - Kelly Keagy


You know, I was never a big fan of Butt Rock (hair/glam metal :biggrin:), so putting a 6 minute song by a Hair Metal band is a pretty ballsy move. Cinderella was always one of my least favorite of that style of music. This song though is actually pretty good. It's got some good variety with some uncommon instrumentation for the type of music that keeps it interesting. The lyrics also tell a decent coming of age story. Nothing too cheesy here, just some heartfelt lyrics (More on all the songs lyrics later). It does go on a little too long, but not by much. Time Waits (For No One) is another pretty good song. I've always liked Michael Schenker's guitar work. I enjoyed his stuff on the couple Scorpions albums he played on, but never really delved further in to his solo stuff. This is as good of a starting point as any I suppose. I don't particularly care for the vocalist, but he isn't terrible. The star of the song is (obviously) Schenker with some solid riffs and solos. On to Oasis. This is a band that I'm very familiar with just one album, (What's the Story) Morning Glory. I love that album. It played a huge part in my childhood, being 10 when it came out. I know every song on it like the back of my hand, but I never ventured further in to their catalog. This song is a bit different. Perhaps a little more straightforward. A little more tightly constructed. It's still obviously Oasis. You still have the signature Brit-Pop Rock sound with some light Psychedelic influence. I don't think it quite reaches the levels of most of the stuff on Morning Glory, but I don't think any other Oasis could, that album is so ingrained in my brain. Hourglass is where the wheels come off for the EP. This song encapsulates pretty much everything I cant stand about 80's music. Bad use of what I'm pretty sure is a sax, annoyingly bad chorus, Huey Lewis & the News-like sound, I could go on and on. So lets move on. The Kelly Keagy song tries to right the ship. I'm familiar with Kelly Keagy being the drummer of Night Ranger. My parents were huge Night Ranger fans being from the bay area and liked to catch their shows all the time. I actually met Kelly Keagy once at a Night Ranger show years ago, along with the rest of the band. This is probably the best song here though. Nothing too complex just a great tune, with more good lyrics.

Now on to the lyrics. Everything either reminds me of the good times I had in my childhood or the trials and victories I had growing up. It was kind of like taking a trip down memory lane. Obviously it's all helped by lyrics that deal with those subjects in pretty much every song. Thanks for helping me recall lots of great memories from way back in the day  :tup
The flow here is actually pretty good, nothing too jarring or out of place with the exception of the Squeeze song. I kind of wish that was exchanged for something else. Oh well. That song hurt the overall score. Also the production disparity of the MSG song from the rest was noticeable.

14.1 (EP Score) + 3.5 (Flow Score) + .5 (bonus song) = 18.1


Dream Theater
TAC


Distant Dream - Images
Ashes of Chaos - Awake
Oliver Riz - Scenes from a Memory
Flamenhell - Systematic Chaos
Anton Ivanykin - Falling into Infinity


So at least one, maybe two, of these songs I'm pretty sure you pulled out of thin air to fit the theme you came up with :lol That's ok, because I actually enjoyed every song here, regardless of how you decided on them.

Images is a really cool Post-Rock track and a great way to start the EP. When I looked it up on RYM, I was surprised at the low rating this album has. Is the rest of this album that terrible? Cause this song is good! I mean the second half has that soul rending guitar solo, how do you not like that? Sure, it has some pretty cookie cutter Post-Rock riffing and progressions and they may not have the most original sound, but they wrap it all in a nice atmosphere. Just an all around good track. Awake is the "epic" of the EP. It's pretty standard Progressive Metal and the singing isn't the greatest (neither are the harsh vocals), but there's a lot to like here too. The guitar riffing immediately caught my attention. I like what they are doing with the guitars and drums in the odd time signatures. The instrumental break starting around the 4 minutes mark is classic Dream Theater. Everyone gets a space to show off a bit and they all get to play off each other. It doesn't exactly flow with the rest of the song though. There's also a few moments of disjointedness. I could see these guys pulling out a much better sophomore album. Hopefully they are working on something....with a different vocalist. So next we come to the song that you pulled out of your ass :D This actually works as a perfect segue between the first and second halves of the EP. I love piano driven instrumentals like this as long as they don't go on too long. Systematic Chaos picks things back up with some heavy riffing and blast beats in a tasty Death/Thrash package. Death/Thrash is one of my favorite metal subgenre mashups, right up there with Progressive Black Metal and a few others. These guys seem to be relatively unknown, but if they keep up this quality of music and get a little better production they could be a force to be reckoned with. I'm definitely picking up this album. Falling Into Infinity is probably my favorite song here. I have no idea how you found this song or if you knew of this guy before, but I couldn't find any info on him, but good lord can he shred the crap out of that guitar. He makes it sing, cry, shred, melt faces. He's got a little bit of prog, technical metal, jazz, blues, Satriani/Vai shred. It's really that good.

The flow is a bit all over the place, but nothing too terrible. It could have benefited from some editing of the tracks. Other than that, every song was individually enjoyable to one extent or another. I'll send you my version of a Dream Theater themed EP that I thought of, at some point....

Thanks for helping me recall lots of great memories from way back in the day  :tup


...but pack up your shit and get lost!   :)

Kidding.  Couple thoughts: 
 - Hourglass was the one song I wasn't comfortable with, and I think subconsciously I knew it was going to stick out like a sore thumb.  I have other songs I could have given (though I rest comfortably with the fact that I was probably out anyway).
 - If you are even a mild Oasis fan, you owe it to yourself to check out "Dig Out Your Soul", their last record, and the album from which my song came.  It's really a noticeable step up from the couple that came before.  I'm like you; I've listened to "...Morning Glory" about a brazilian times, and love it, but I find that DOYS is the one I go back to more often these days.   Really strong stuff, and if they ever DO reune, I would love it to sound like that.
 - Michael Schenker; I liked him, and the first four solo records (three with the singer you got - Gary Barden - and one with Graham Bonnet from Rainbow) held a special place in my heart.  With the help of TAC and a couple others here, I started to get into his UFO stuff, then with the recent tour (I got to see him in NYC with all four of his main singers; and got to meet Gary Barden and shoot the shit with him for a couple minutes - what a treat!) I started to get into his later stuff, and while not every singer is great, and not every song is great, his playing is really something special.   You know it's him every time, and in my opinion, AS A PLAYER he belongs on the same level as the truly great players we talk about here all the time.

Oh yeah nearly forgot but here's my EP link and narrative that I sent Pups.

In summary, the story is about someone who, having devoted his life to his faith, renounces it. I was actually surprised at how well a lot of the lyrics fit. :lol

The track is here: https://mega.nz/#!hWwUXIwS!1zRuK56C6CdJu35w778I_kwxNjfh_EsrlEkMXN_qpfQ

And here's the tracklist and narrative with quotes from the lyrics of each song:


The Adversary

00:00-05:20
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - A Hymn To The Morning Star

“A new world is crawling from the ashes of the old, two thousand years of guilt and fear and the greatest lie ever told.”
“He steps from the shadow, and he opens up his eyes.”
“I am the adversary and must remain the adversary.”

In which our character, who has devoted his whole life to his faith, comes to enlightenment and realises that it was all a lie. He pledges to be the Adversary and stand up to the lies.

05:20-08:40
Dissona - Outside the Skin

“Emerging before another kind of dawn.”
“I know this more than myself.”
“With no need to be anything outside of the skin.”

In which our character, freed from the shackles of religion, realises how little he knows himself, having always relied on the external guidance of his faith. He determines that he no longer needs anything more than himself, and that the time has come to learn who he is.

08:40-13:30
Ghost Brigade - Departures

“I am sorry I couldn't stay.”
“Screaming worth a lifetime with a voice of a follower, always too soon, always too late.”
“If only I knew how to forgive, if only I knew how to let go, if only I knew how to own what I am.”

In which our character looks back with regret on the fact that he couldn’t reconcile his faith with knowing himself. He no longer feels angry with his god and his church, but he cannot forgive either. He must move on with his life.

13:30-20:10
Dog Fashion Disco - End of the Road

“A wise man once said "Life's just a ride", only illusion, only a ride.”
“I feel that pale death creeping in, this must be the dead end of the road.”
“The last midnight, the last sunrise, the last song.”

In which our character learns that a fatal sickness has struck him, and he only has days to live. At first he is melancholy, almost accepting. But he becomes angry upon realising his last days are almost upon him, and he never had the chance to truly live because he had devoted all of himself to the church.

20:10-29:11
Dissona - Totality

“Our purpose, our substance, our existence has been taken from us.”
“Grown within the ground we stand in a long defeated land, we are rooted deep within a vile calamity.”
“Burning light has gone away, our bodies have been betrayed.”

In which our character becomes the Adversary. Furious at his church and at god for taking everything from him, and for keeping those of faith trapped in a state of prisonous slumber, he spends his last days spreading the truth of this vile calamity, until at last his body betrays him and everything comes to an end.

Feeling pretty confident about reaching the final then Tim?

I've been about 90% 'done' mine for a week or so.  Not so confident on reaching the final, but I sure as hell don't want to try to put a 'concept album' together in a couple of days.  It's taken quite a bit of work to sift thru a few different ideas, then find the right songs, and ensure they 'flow'.  Whether I reach the end or not, Puppies is getting this concept album!

Nah, it's not that. Up until yesterday, I hadn't really thought about it. But putting a concept album together from scratch seemed pretty daunting. I just didn't want to find myself in a position where if I needed to do one, I wasn't prepared.

But I have the concept, and pretty much have it put together. Hoping nothing gets banned in the meantime. :D

I cannot find lyrics to 4 of the songs online, so I may have to end up trying to figure them out on my own. That's going to take some time.

I'll definitely listen to any concept albums sent to me, even if you get eliminated before then.

I'll say that not all lyrics have to 100% fit. As long as you don't have one song that's about a grapefruit and then another song about tax law in 18th century France.....or something like that....unless you can somehow conceptually connect them. :biggrin:

Still don't have an album from Elite, but that hasn't stopped me from listening to what I have so far.

One interesting note, we completed the Nordic country trifecta this round, with Norway, Sweden, and Finland all getting representation.  :corn

In the mean time have some first impressions for some of the albums.

- Melodic and technical. Off putting trigger sounds on the tom drums.
- Sounds like Voivod, Galactic Cowboys, and Tool had a weird 3-way love child
- This artist definitely has a sound and style that they like to stick to.
- The intensity here is basically turned up to 11.....at all times, without let up.
