College IS an acceptable reason.

Get back to us when you can.

Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

I CAN!

Again, sorry for the delay! Time for the results of round 4!

YtseBitsySpider - Riding the Tide by Arena

Oh oh! I love love love this. The synth is so nice sounding. The changing meter is a great driver of the song, and the harmonic progression create a beautiful psychedelic rainbows with golden clouds with shimmering water picture. I need to get off the acid. Anyway, think you for this.

5

Nekov - Digital ayatollah by Spinetta Jade

This song is interesting. There are some really nice grooves, and the dissonant melodies are catchy. It's like...smooth jazz, but not.

3

Iarwain - On Impulse by Animals As Leaders

Good stuff here. When that electronic beat came in, I was like :metal. But then it went away... Anyway, it's still pretty good.

3

orcus116 - Welcome to Bangkok by Brand new

This song is decent. It has a good build. But just kind of blah for me.

3

RaphaelRaven - Bouree by Jethro Tull

That was a great performance! I love his enthusiasm, and his tone is beautiful.

4

energythief - In The Hall of the Mountain King by Electric Light Orchestra

I was expecting In the Hall of the Mountain King, but the songs starts with William Tell Overture. :lol I thought it was an okay rendition. I preferred    Edvard Grieg's original better though. It kind of lacks the frantic horror that the story needs.

2

MasterShakezula - Nuttville by Buddy Rich

I love screaming trumpet, and bebop is my favorite genre of jazz. Great pick. I enjoyed it.

4

Ravenheart - Just Like You Imagined by Nine Inch Nails

The song was okay. NIN makes pretty good ambient things. Slightly bland for me, not bad over all.

3

Ħ - Count Bubba by Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band

This song's pretty good. I enjoy jazz, so good choice.

4



A lot of average songs again.


Right now the standings are:

17 - Ħ
16
15 - YtseBitsySpider
14 - RaphaelRaven, MasterShakezula
13
12 - orcus116
11 - Iarwain, Ravenheart
10 - Nekov, energythief







The fifth round is interesting.

5. Can Listen Only Once!

Submit a song that will immediately catch my attention! I'll only listen to it once before giving it a rating.

GOGOGO!

Time for the results of round 5!

Ħ - Hyperventilate by Frost*

Wow. This is beautiful. It really is. You know me, man. KNOW ME. Thank you for this. Thank you.

5

YtseBitsySpider - A Criminal Mind (featuring Lawrence Gowan) by Styx

Great performance, and a beautiful song. They always put on a great show. I loved the vocal melody and the piano of course.

4

MasterShakezula - Questions 67 and 68 by Chicago

Another good song! You people are doing great! It's really fun. The instrumental break before the last chorus is what made it for me.

4

Nekov - Astral Entrance / Master Of Sensation by Eloy

The soft intro, or Astral Entrance I'm assuming, is really nice. The rest is okay. Nothing super special, but still good. Great vibe.

3

energythief- Peacemaker Die by Extreme

This song has a really good chorus. It's a great and simple hard rock song. And great sample usage as well.

3

Iarwain - Gleam in Ranks by Maudlin of The Well

Good and powerful song. Kind of forgetful for me though.

3

RaphaelRaven - Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull

Are you fucking kidding me? I have to sit through this? :lol I have a feeling this song might be better in another category. Long songs tend to be growers (lol). I have a feeling that's what this song has to be. It's just kind of okay. Some good stuff, but nothing blew me away.

3

orcus116 - That Kind Of Man by The Heavy

This song has a really nice groove. (I use that word too much. Sorry about my limited descriptive vocabulary.) Had my head nodding. It never really went any further than that though.

3

Ravenheart - Panic by Anathema

Oh! This is a really nice song! Simple, but compelling! The chorus is really fun, and I'd love to sing along.

4



Great round, everyone! Nothing below average!

Right now the standings are:

22 - Ħ
21
20
19 - YtseBitsySpider
18 - MasterShakezula
17 - RaphaelRaven
16
15 - orcus116, Ravenheart
14 - Iarwain
13 - Nekov, energythief


Ħ still has a dominating lead while the pack is spreading out in the middle!




The sixth round is something I'm excited for.

6. Before My Time!

Submit a song that was released before the year 1991. That shouldn't be too hard!

GOGOGO!

Thanks.  The rest of the album is totally worth checking out (Milliontown).  It's really something.

This round is gonna be tricky, because I basically don't listen to old stuff.  But I have an idea.
