results tonight!

Very consistent round from a quality standpoint, but the genres sent were all over the board (relatively speaking).  Made for interesting listening sessions.

I have no idea either because I just pick up the links from the PMs without looking to see who sent what.  I don't know who sent what song until I'm posting results.

Re: Big Hath's Roulette The 2nd - Round 1! Listening Mode
« Reply #86 on: March 05, 2015, 09:13:49 PM »
this must have been the unofficial female vocals round as 4 of the songs had females as either lead or prominent backing vocals.  It was a weird round to listen to as each song was very different from the next.  Sorry for some short notes on some of these, I guess the song either struck me or it didn't.  And we have another elimination to take care of . . .



Sacul: Destiny Potato - Love Song: I can appreciate the heaviness, but the vocals are just not doing it for me, unfortunately.
Score: 6.0


kingshmegland: Enchant - Under Fire: Wait, I know that voice.  The Spock's Beard/Affector guy.  I like his voice, but the song never really goes to that awesome level.  Favorite part was the instrumental build-up to the solo.
Score: 7.0


senecadawg2: Enslaved - Roots of the Mountain: Let's see, I mentioned I don't care for black metal shrieking and that's what someone sends.  Just kidding, it was only right at the very beginning and a few other spots.  It's kind of hard for me to get a handle on this song with so much going on - lots of different vocal styles, several changes in mood, etc.  It's one of those I need to listen to A LOT to let it sink in.  I can enjoy this but I need to be in the mood for it.
Score: 7.5


Tom Bombadil: The Count Basie Orchestra - Step Right Up: Love big band.  This song had very much a Glenn Miller feel with that frantic sax-led theme with the brass providing the accents.  That trumpet soloist has a great tone, nice and full.  Very enjoyable tune.
Score: 7.5


Elite: Pagan's Mind - Into the Aftermath: I had to go with your second song as the first was just a bit over the threshold.  I feel like I'm familiar enough with Jolly, just haven't gotten that second Audio Guide album yet.  This song was heavy with some fast and intricate riffing just under the surface, awesome.  But that screaming section puts me off just a bit.  Overall I like what I've heard and will definitely check out more from them.
Score: 7.5


bl5150: Beautiful Sin - Take Me Home: High energy song, fun stuff.  She has a great voice.  Rather short song, but it didn't really feel like it for some reason.
Score: 8.0


Scorpion: Kamelot - Memento Mori: Big fan of that huge, slow guitar slide that ushers you from the soft intro to the heavier section.  The driving choruses are my favorite parts.  The galloping riffing for those choruses was a big plus.  Very epic feel.
Score: 8.0


adace: Avatarium - Moonhorse: Some really interesting juxtaposition of extremely doomy sections with almost folky/medieval verses.  Was more a fan of the heavy parts and the guitar solo rather than the early verses, although they were quite haunting.  I did like the hard stop right before the guitar solo, very striking.  In fact, that was my favorite part of the song from about 3:20 to 5:00 or so.  Really cool song!
Score: 8.5


Bolsters: Primal Fear - When Death Comes Knocking: Very cool atmosphere created in the intro (that opening picked part on the guitar reminds me of Dream Theater, maybe On The Backs of Angels?) before the heavy guitars come in.  I like that thick heavy sound from the bass/guitar combo.  I appreciate the sitar mixed in as well.  Overall the song has a raw energetic feel I really like.
Score: 8.5



Rankings after round 3
bl5150 - 9.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 = 26.0
Elite - 8.5 + 9.0 + 7.5 = 25.0
Bolsters - 8.5 + 8.0 + 8.5 = 25.0
senecadawg2 - 8.0 + 8.5 + 7.5 = 24.0
Scorpion - 7.0 + 9.0 + 8.0 = 24.0
kingshmegland - 9.0 + 7.5 + 7.0 = 23.5
Tom Bombadil - 7.5 + 8.0 + 7.5 = 23.0
adace - 7.0 + 7.0 + 8.5 = 22.5

Eliminated
LieLowTheWantedMan - 6.0 + 7.5 = 13.5
Sacul - 8.0 + 8.0 + 6.0 = 22.0


Sacul, thank you for participating, but it is now time for you to go.  adace had a very strong song that saved him from elimination this time around but he'll have to do it again next round.  Both bl5150 and Elite had tiny dips this round, allowing Bolsters to close the gap a bit.

after two more rounds we'll be down to a final 6, at which time I'll announce how the rest of the roulette will play out.

I felt a bit uncertain about the Enslaved track, so I'm relatively happy with the 7.5.

that song/band has a good bit of potential for me.  Will just need to spend more time with it than I could for a roulette round.  Definitely going on the 'bands to check out later' list.

this round, somebody has sent a song from a band that previously had a song submitted which scored an 8.0 or above.  It is a different song from a completely different album.


Question for the remaining 8 participants, should I keep the song or ask for a different one?

You never said in the rules that it's not allowed to send songs by the same band again. However, it is obviously implied with roulettes that the aim is to send a different band/artist every round and that duplicates shouldn't be allowed. It's up to you, but I think you should send a different song. Otherwise, any participant can easily win just by repeatedly sending a well-scoring band which completely defeats the purpose of this game.

If the song is really different from the previous one, up to the point they seem two different bands, I would keep it. But it's up to you anyways.
