Sent.  It just happens one of my favorite songs has a massive, groovy outro.  It's certainly different though...hopefully its good enough to maintain my lead.

This is killing me, I only have one song in mind - but it's so cheesy.

Edit: General question for this round, how important is the outro. Because this outro is unbelievably awesome, but the rest of the song is unbelievably cheesy.. lol (one could argue that the outro is also rather cheesy, just not as cheesy)

Sorry guys. Been kinda preoccupied with the Easter insanity in my family (which for some reason continues even now) so I haven't had much song time. They'll be up tomorrow, promise.

Best song (5 points):

TheVoxyn: Ghost - Neutral Milk Hotel

You know, the funny thing about this one is I'm not sure why I loved it so much. It seemed so strangely captivating and fun to listen to. The outro wasn't anything huge and bombastic, but it worked really well to close the song. So I enjoyed it greatly.


High tier (4 points):

zxlkho: A Simple Mistake - Anathema

Yeah, this song was really beautiful. Had a really uplifting vibe to it and the outro was definitely amazing. Probably my favourite outro of the songs.


DTVT: The Siren of the Woods - Therion

The first thing I thought when the vocals came in was how unique and cool this was. This whole song had a sort of ancient, mystic feel to it and it was really enchanting. Haven't heard any band like this before, I'll have to check these guys out.


Medium Tier (3 points):

dtismajesty: The Light and the Glass - Coheed and Cambria

Haven't checked out much Coheed before, but this was a really great song with a really great outro. I usually don't like Claudio very much, but I thought he worked amazingly in this song. Great send. :)


ariich/YBS: Eternally, Pt. 2 - Karmakanic

This song had a kind of old feel to it too, I feel. Yet a bit differently then DTVT's send. A very good song, and a very good outro. I liked the vocalist a lot too! ;)


Medium low tier (2 points):

The King In Crimson: The Prophets Song - Queen

Queen is incredibly hit or miss for me. This one was pretty good, but I feel the harmony section overstayed it's welcome a bit. Still, it was a pretty good song.


jsem: Rosanna - Toto

Yeah, I didn't really like the content of this song. :P But...DAT SOLO! :hefdaddy It made up for some of the songs content for sure. All and all, okay song, but amazing solo!


Bottom tier (1 point):
Gorille85: Closer - Nine Inch Nails

Hmm so this is the song my friend kept quoting. Anyways, yeah it's not really my type. :P Sorry. NIN is a decent band, but I didn't really like this song.


Final Rankings:

DTVT: 34
zxlkho: 33
ariich/YBS: 31
jsem: 30
Gorille85: 29
TheVoxyn: 28
dtismajesty: 28
The King In Crimson: 27

And the winner is:DTVT!!!

Alright and to close. Well, my favourite song this roulette is a tie between:
Vinushka - Dir En Grey (sent by Gorille85)
Carousel - Mr. Bungle (sent by The King In Crimson)

So I definitely got bands to check out. Thanks a bunch guys, you all sent some really amazing stuff, and severely added to my already extremely long list of stuff to check out. :lol

Woot, my second win!  I love Therion, and the live album "Gothic Live" is one of the best concert DVDs I've seen.  I don't understand why they aren't more popular here.  But I'm glad you liked them and would love to guide you through their discography.

Close roulette. Grats to DTVT, you dirty, rotten bastard.  :tup

I may have lost, but one of my songs was a favorite. Go me! :)

Sounds good. What would you say is the best album to start with?

Everything from Theli on is worth getting eventually, but I would say start with Theli is a good starting point, and Secrets of the Runes is another good one from the "single singer era".  They went to multiple singers lately, and their new album "Sitra Ahra" is very good.  I would probably go in order: Theli, Sitra Ahra, Secrets of the Runes, Deggial, Gothic Kaballah, Vovin, then Sirius B/Lemuria (sold as a double album).  I don't know if I'd call that my definitive album ranking, but it would allow you to hear how their sound has developed over time without seeing the progression.  Of course, chronological order worked really well for me, but then again I didn't have much of a choice as I've been a fan for over 12 years.

And I think I said earlier the "Live Gothic" is one of the best concert DVD's I've ever seen, and it comes with the CD version as well.  That would also be a great starting point.
