Genowyn's Song Roulette v.2: Revengeance, The End
« on: January 22, 2016, 12:36:18 PM »
Alright apparently the time has come for me to do another Song Roulette!

First things first we need participants, so far I have:

Train of Naught
Parama
Scorpion
Senecadawg2
Ultimetalhead
Shadow Ninja 2.0
Stadler
Sir Walrus Cauliflower
Sacul
Fluffy Lothario


Probably looking for 6-8 participants, depending on interest.

As far as format, we'll be looking at something pretty standard. Probably eight rounds, some with themes, some open. As usual themed rounds will be scored both on how much I like the song and how much it fits the theme.

For scoring, I'm gonna do it one of two ways, haven't quite decided yet. Either each song will be scored with a value of 1-5, or the songs will be ranked, and the number one song will get 8 points if there are eight participants, number two would get 7, and so on. Participants can weigh in on that if they have a preference.

Here's my last.fm: http://www.last.fm/user/Genowyn

However you may note looking at it that the last scrobbles come from 2013. I mostly listen to music on Spotify now and i had not set up to scrobble from Spotify, but that is now corrected, so hopefully as I listen on my Spotify in the coming days you'll get a better representation of what I'm into now.

So tl;dr right now we need volunteers and any opinions on the scoring system.


Dream Theater
Porcupine Tree (Post Signify)
Opeth (Pre Heritage)
Devin Townsend
Coheed and Cambria
The Dear Hunter
Metallica
Megadeth
Iron Maiden
Pink Floyd
Rush
Stolen Babies
Protest the Hero
Queensryche
Tool
Pendulum
Eisley
Dir en grey
Avenged Sevenfold

I've never played in a roulette with the 1-8 ranked worst to best score system, I guess it would be interesting but I can't tell you what's more fun.

Also, you planning on making a rough version of a banned list? Or should we just base our options on the last.fm

I could write up a list of bands I am familiar with if that's what you mean. May be more useful than the out of date last.fm

I prefer rankings when hosting roulettes myself, but that's mainly because songs to have an incredibly slim grading margin when I don't rank - like, I rarely give anything outside the 6-9 range. But in the end that's your call - as a player, I have no preference either way.

I'd like to be in, if possible;  just need some clarity if there are bands you don't want to hear from, or if you are leaving it to us to take a stab at submitting something we like and think you'll like.

So here is a list of bands you should probably avoid as I am pretty familiar with their catalogues. If anything else comes to mind as things go on I will update this list:

Dream Theater
Porcupine Tree (Post Signify)
Opeth (Pre Heritage)
Devin Townsend
Coheed and Cambria
The Dear Hunter
Metallica
Megadeth
Iron Maiden
Pink Floyd
Rush
Stolen Babies
Protest the Hero

shortest banned list ever  :lol

works for me, gives me lots of options.
btw you're probably going to be exposed to Ayreon at some point if that's not just something you left off the list accidentally

I'm only really familiar with Human Equation. And that's why i'm apprehensive about this sort of list - there are plenty of bands where I'm only really familiar with one or two albums.

I kind of like scores 1-8, as a judge, because it makes the job easier on you in doing the scores. It can be hard to rank consistently across genres and over the course of the roulette, otherwise, in my opinion. Also, like Scorpion mentioned, it can be hard to differentiate much between all the contestants if you're a particularly easy grader. If that makes any sense...

I'm running a roulette and participating on 2, so maybe I'll have to let this pass :P

Also, I should be studying  :lol

Good point, but I'd say, Genowyn, just score depending on how much you enjoyed it, indifferent of styles and genres  :P

i just dislike that in a really consistent round where the worst score is, say, a 8 and the best is a 9.5 by a 0 to 10 scale, in a ranking system, the 9.5 gets 7 points more than the 8  :lol

this is coming from someone whose only roulette victory was in a roulette with a ranking system rather than a scoring system, too  :P

Never done a roulette before but if you still need participants I'll give it a go.

Alright so we're up to 8 participants. I will leave it open for as many as 10, but whatever happens I'll post round one tomorrow afternoon.

I've decided to go with a scoring system instead of ranking.

Alright so let's get this show on the road!

For round one we'll keep things simple: this'll be an open round. So I'm judging purely on how much I enjoy the song.

Send your submissions via PM. If the song is available on Spotify just let me know that it is and I'll check it out there. If you know it's not available on Spotify, either send me a youtube link or email me, genowyn (at) gmail (dot) com with an MP3/FLAC/Whatever.

Probably... we've already got 10 participants and I'd like it to be an even number (for some reason). 10 songs is already sorta a lot to be giving proper consideration to in a timely manner as well. Sorry man.

Well considering my weird, hard-to-please tastes, I think this way I find better stuff - with my last roulette, I think I only checked like 20-30 out of all the albums I got, and ended up loving 3 or 4, so now statistics are on my side :P
