Can we send an album that we have previously sent a track from?

seems like if we did that, the song that was already sent should not be considered as part of the album since the sender already knows how he felt about it (meaning the album score would come from the other songs only).  My opinion, anyway.  It's jsem's roulette to run however he wants.

I didn't really think of that. But just because I really like one song off an album doesn't mean I think the album itself is that enjoyable. WDADU would get like a 5/10 score from me even though I'd rate Ytse Jam and The Killing hand 9/10 or higher.

So I guess I'd still allow for it.

:bump:

I know this is the last round, and you're listening to 6 complete albums, but hopefully you can declare a winner soon so those up next can get theirs underway.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Round 10: And The Winner Is....

Big Hath:

Dave Weckl Band - Transition(8.5/10)
This is pretty much what I expected of them and hoped for Right from the get go Dave is in the pocket and the band is playing tight and with incredible musicianship. They feed off each other and at certain times it's ecstacy. Brandon Fields plays his ass off on this album, out of this world.

Best song(s): Wake Up, Group Therapy

Devin Townsend - Ocean Machine: Biomech(7/10)
I like some of his work, but this just doesn't stick to me as his other work does. I applaud him for having such a diverse catalogue, but this particular album won't be as well received by me as some of his other albums. It's solid all the way through, but lacks anything that truly sticks to me and makes me want to play it over and over again.

Best song(s): Life

Scorpion:

Sigh – In Somniphobia(9.5/10)
Oh my, this album destroyed my rectum. They have so much to offer. Saxophone in metal, really avant-garde. I can totally see why someone wouldn't like this, but I can't not like this. They have the same approach to musical ideas as I do, and they make it fun, quirky and enjoyable. Just like with Diablo Swing, the quirkyness itself doesn't make the music great, it's the fact that the quirkyness is well placed inside of musical ideas.

Kamelot – The Black Halo(9/10)
Power Metal or Metal in general doesn't get much better than this. Solid all the way through. Tight rhythmic playing, great riffs and overall solid song ideas. The flow of the album should be applauded too, not just story-wise, but musically.

Best song(s): Moonlight, This Pain

YtseBitsySpider:

Anthrax – Worship Music(9/10)
One of the most solid thrash releases ever. I don't always enjoy thrash, but now I did. Some excellent tracks on here, and headbang-worthy moments.

Best song(s): The Devil You Know, In The End

DGM – In My Mind(8.5/10)
A prog metal band with Symphony X vibes. I love this. It doesn't really reach the level of SX's best stuff, but this is extremely solid. I find it hard to say much else about this. It's nothing out of the ordinary really, but it's extremely solid.

Best song(s): Reason. Void



So.... The winner is.... Scorpion!

Overall, I was expecting to be blown away more by these albums, but whatever. When I summarize the entire roulette, I got so much good stuff and I have a long list of shiet to get through now.

Thank you guys for participating!

congrats to Scorpion!

Thanks for running this roulette, jsem.  It was fun, but to be honest I was a bit lost there for a few rounds as far as what music to send.  I was surprised to make the finals.

I guess it might be easier if there's a set theme for each round too, but this is the way my roulette panned out. As a result, some people ended up blowing their loads early and ran out of steam towards the end, but whatever.

This has been great journey for me, so thanks again to all the competitors.  :tup

If it did, shame on me. Actually, shame on me whatever the case. It went on for way too long.

No roulette went on as long as Nick's.
