Since we only have 9 players, will it still be 3 people in the finals?  If so, 2 people eliminated after every 3 rounds?

Thought I was gonna be a couple of spots higher ... precariously close to the cut line.  Will send later today.  Gotta have a listen to what the top 3 sent.

Also, in future, it's a lot easier/helpful if the results are ranked by score vs alphabetical.
Can you imagine some alien race comes to a large nebula they've never seen before, and it just turns out it's the Federation's dumping ground for space-smile?
And TAC can suck it  :biggrin:, this is heavy in all the right places.  :tup

This is correct.

I had a cursory listen when you got top marks for it from Tyrias.  Not terrible.  Have to re-listen now.

4th is better than I expected, from reading the write-ups. It is an odd choice I guess, and I understand how it could leave some of y'all wanting more.

Hopefully this next round I can step it up a bit.

I'm listening to the album right now (or at least starting to, I don't think I'll manage all 2 hours before going to bed), and it's awesome :heart

I realize my write-ups are probably still not as clear, in term of what I liked and why I gave a certain score, as I'd like them to be. I guess that's just because English isn't my first language and while I'm fairly confident in my English abilities, I'm just not used to having to articulate what I liked in a song and what I didn't. It's been a while since my last roulette, and looking back at it, most of my write-ups were pretty awful back then. I guess I'll improve in the next rounds with practice.

Didn't mean it as a criticism of your write-ups, or anything like that, I just thought the disappointment about the abrupt ending was going to be more costly.

Anyways, I've sent!

I've added a list of artists banned during the roulette to the post with all of the other banned lists. There's a link to it at the bottom of the OP.

Hey, Bolsters, I can't see the scoreboards at the moment. I just get the little blue question marks. Is this just me or have they actually vanished?

i'm gonna try and get at least 2-3 more hammock albums this year because i've been slacking on doing that, seeing as i love departure songs and all

i already have some 10 albums lined up for my next music purchase though, and i'm gonna have a lot less time to give stuff proper listens once i start working, though  :lol

Sent my song.

@425: I've got a perfect song for you, but it's over 10-minutes limit, so for this round, I've got another perfect song for you. If I've learned anything during playing in your roulette, you should love this big time. When I've heard you'll be one of the judges, I immediately had this song in my mind. I wanted to send it in your roulette but could've find a right time to do it... well, now is the right time, I guess.

@Tyrias: This might be a bit outside of your comfort zone, but I'm confident enough in your tastes that you can recognize a great song when you see one. I hope this will be the case here. I'm also fairly sure you'll love the ending.

@Mr. Red: Since you've liked both David Gilmour song and Nightingale one, I start to think you may be a great person with awesome tastes. I've got two songs lined up for your round, one in case you trash this one up and another one in case you'll like this song. I think it's more likely you'll give this a good score... but hey, you're a mystery for a reason. Also, if you don't like this song, I retract my statement about your greatness and awesome tastes. Think it over.

@RJ: Sorry about that, bud. :lol

@Tyrias - maybe you'll like this, it's not something i think you would hate
@425 - i find it unlikely you'll dislike this, and you'll definitely like it way more than East of the Wall
@Red - i dunno what the hell you like but you'll also like this way more than East of the Wall

I don't have any messages specific to the judge, but I've submitted one of my top 3-5 songs from the past few years and if you don't like it at least a little bit then maybe we should just stay friends.

Well, I guess we'll see if I'll prove worthy of your confidence in my tastes :lol.

I felt like I knew the name of your artist from somewhere the moment I saw it. Now I just remembered he was in a movie called "Once" I saw a few years ago. Beautiful movie. Now let's hope the song you sent me is as good as the movie, cause I never got around to checking out this artist's solo work (or band work? not sure).
@Tyrias - maybe you'll like this, it's not something i think you would hate
@425 - i find it unlikely you'll dislike this, and you'll definitely like it way more than East of the Wall
@Red - i dunno what the hell you like but you'll also like this way more than East of the Wall
from the first few seconds that started playing when I opened the link I can tell you that I at least don't like that kind of German accent ::). We'll see about the music when I have all the songs :P.
Hey, Bolsters, I can't see the scoreboards at the moment. I just get the little blue question marks. Is this just me or have they actually vanished?
They never worked for me on the phone, maybe that's where you looked at them?

As for the comment, while I really like the movie, his solo material is (in many cases) significantly better than Once. This should be one of those cases...

Yeah, true, I realized that a bit too late. :P but i think everyone has sent anyway, so I guess it won't matter that much.
Also, I'm pretty sure at leadt half the participants would still need google to know what I'm talking about.
