the fact that you rather liked what I could see some around here dismissing as a poppy song is very awesome.

I don't think you can dismiss something just because it's poppy. I know I said I dislike modern pop, but I'd say that's a different genre than what you sent me.

that like Yes and Miley Cirus  :P.

energythief is just quoting me because I'm stupid, and it's funny.

These are results for Round 2 in order of submission!

orcus116 - Campaign by Russian Circles

This is a great ambient song. I love what it does, but I wish it would develop a little bit more. So while I like, I don't like it quite as I would like a 4.

3

YtseBitsySpider - Making Memories by Rush

This is fun and upbeat. Rush sounds great as usual, but I have the same complaint as the song above. It's just a little too static to be amazing.

3

MasterShakezula - Epitaph by King Crimson

That's right. This is a big name I've never really listened to. This song is pretty great. I enjoy the very subtle build it has. It's nothing that completely blew me away.

3

Ħ - Pure Narcotic by Porcupine Tree

Great acoustic sounds in this one! I also love the chord progressions. GAH, HIPSTER BELLS. But it's okay. This song is a great listen. I'm bad with coming up with things to say though, heh.

4

energythief - Fidelity by Regina Spektor

Oh god. Oh dear. I'm sorry. So sorry. But you seemed to have picked a song that I've come to loathe. I guess I just really don't like the singer's voice. The song makes me feel sick. May god have mercy on your soul. (:lol)

1

Iarwain - I'll Come Running by Brian Eno

This is song is okay. It's a got a good vibe, and it's very easy to listen to. But that's about it.  :-\

3

Nekov - Utopia by Tony Levin

Another very laid back song here. It's okay. I like the sound, but it just goes on while not really building or doing anything exciting. Doesn't quite make average, though.

2

Ravenheart - Loose Ends by Imogen Heap

Cool poppy beat. It wasn't too exciting though. It had really fun vocals. Yeah. Um. *cough*

2

RaphaelRaven - Landslide by Fleetwood Mac

Hey. I know this song. But I knew that you wanted to submit it whether I liked it or not, so whatever. The songs brings back memories; I'm just not sure what of. Good but not great.

3




Sorry about the horrible commentary I gave. I guess I was just feeling like there wasn't much to say. Also the average rating was lower this time. I blame the category. :lol This next round will be better. I'm sure of it.

Right now the standings are:

9 - Ħ
8
7 - orcus116, MasterShakezula
6 - YtseBitsySpider, RaphaelRaven
5 - Iarwain, Nekov, Ravenheart
4 - energythief






The third round is also part of a bunch of over used themes:

3. Hella Heavy!

Submit a song that is on the heavier side! I'm excited for this. I haven't really gotten any heavy songs yet.  :biggrin:

GOGOGO!

Hmmm this is gonna be tough, mostly cause I don't really listen to heavy stuff.

EDIT: I see you like Avenged Sevenfold -- so screaming sometimes does it for you?

Well, I like newer Avenged. The first two albums (which are all mostly screaming) don't do it for me.  :lol I really like songs like A Little Piece of Heaven, Fiction, Unbound, but not God Hates Us, or their older stuff. Generally, screaming doesn't please me, but there's always exceptions.

I think it'll be more questionably questionable.

Good or bad?

That's an open question.

What the hell are you saying? :lol



Now that everyone has their submission in, and I'm not busy packing for college, here are results for Round 3 in order of submission!

Ħ - Dark Chest of Wonders by Nightwish

I've listened to Nightwish, but nothing ever caught my attention. This is a pretty rockin' song. The power of the song with the harmonic structure of the chorus makes it resemble a kind of glory metal song. But heavier and less cheesy...maybe not less cheesy. Not sure about that.

4

orcus116 - Little Smoke by This Will Destroy You

The best part about this song is waiting for it to start lol. No but really. This song is fascinating. Such a powerful build and epic feeling. It's great. But unfortunately I have no desire to really listen to it again. Most of the time I can't tell what the hell is going on.  :-\

2

YtseBitsySpider - Night Comes Clean by Soilwork

This is a really fun song. I love the chorus, and the guitar solo is pretty cool. The vocals are pushing it, but the rest of the song is so great, it still gets a

4

Nekov - The Wolf Is Loose Mastodon

I love the drumming in this song. Unfortunately, the the lack of dynamic color of the song kind of slows it down for me.

2

MasterShakezula - Into the Void by Black Sabbath

This song is okay. Good groove, and I enjoy the change in the B section. The solo at the end pretty neat too.

3

RaphaelRaven - Kashmir by Led Zeppelin

I've only heard this song in passing. I've never really paid attention to it. Great song. This has had the best vocals so far.

4

Iarwain - Collapse Generation by Arcturus

Exciting. Very exciting. I'm not sure what else to say.

3

Ravenheart - Unforgivable Sin by Evergrey

This song was good. It was emotional, and heavy. I'm bad at describing this song.

3

energythief - Dance of the Manatee by Fair to Midland

Pretty cool song. I really like the vocal melody. Good job with this one.

4






Right now the standings are:

13 - Ħ
12
11
10 - YtseBitsySpider, MasterShakezula, RaphaelRaven
9 - orcus116
8 - Iarwain, Ravenheart, energythief
7 - Nekov






The fourth round is also part of a bunch of over used themes:

4. Incredible Instrumental!

Submit a song that doesn't use vocals! That's the only parameter. :biggrin:

GOGOGO!

EDIT: I know you don't like screaming/harsh vocals, but the new Opeth album due Sept 2011 (called Heritage) has been confirmed to have no death vocals.

Totally off-topic, but for real? I do like death vocals but at the same time much prefer cleans (really depends).

This round would be one of my strong rounds, and I went a little off the board even for me rather than something obvious.
I'd say 50% of my music collection has no vocals.
