I think you're making the Lechuga song out to be worse than it is to be honest, it's quite different for sure, but Bolsters does like the things David Maxim Micic puts out if I recall correctly. Lechuga worked together with DMM and has some elements that remind me of him very much, so I don't think it's that much of a long shot at all. I guess we'll see once results are in though.

Never said I wasn't. :biggrin:
This first band is Soen very cool swingy jazz fusion kinda stuff.

Blessed By a Broken Heart
Caravan Palace
Circus Maximus
Dynazty
Eluveitie
Evergrey
Glen Hansard
Gorillaz
Grimes
Lechuga
Pallas
Rishloo

Two listens in now. Overall this is a weaker round compared to the first, I guess most of you just didn't want to keep blowing the good stuff on prelims. Though having said that there's still some good shit in here.

Preliminary rankings have some surprising people sitting in the bottom four facing elimination. That could change in the next few days, however...or perhaps not? :biggrin:

Wouldn't be surprised if it's me in the bottom group - was hoping to get through without touching my favourite Bolsters TM material , but perhaps not  :)    Qualifiers are a pain in the butt - in jingle's I wasted 2 of my highest rated songs in quals and in this one I have made a point of not doing that.  Maybe gone too far the other way  :blush

I seem to have habit of sending pretty good stuff in qualifiers myself, stuff that is perhaps too good, so I can understand anyone wanting to avoid that.

I probably should have saved Within Temptation for the main rounds, could've grabbed the symphonic bonus too. Evergrey I wouldn't have sent in the main competition anyway so that's fine. I guess it's possible I might be on the brink of elimination with that song, but I'm counting on my previous to make it through.

To be honest I thought of saving Rival Sons for the main competition but I'm glad I didn't  :lol it did very well in other roulettes up until now, maybe should've sticked with the other song.

Ditto... Wasted a "9" in Evermind's, and now below the cut line.  And I can totally see BBaBH not hitting the mark with Bolsters.  I hadn't even considered them - it was more of a 'rage' submission in retaliation to you beating me to the punch with Dynazty.  Though, if we're both at the bottom, that wouldn't have helped me anyway!   :lol

Got a couple of days?  ;D  That's what happens when you talk about your "upcoming roulette" and it happens 6 months later.  :P



Dynazty isn't even in the list - just sick of seeing them in every roulette and wanted them out the way  :angel:

Wow  :rollin

If I have a good sense of the hosts tastes (which I probably don't with Bolsters) I have maybe 20-30 artists in mind at most

if I go from having the top song in prelim 1 to having been eliminated before round 1 begins I'm going to be livid.

But yeah as everyone else stated I didnt want to use my best songs for you in the prelims.

You're definitely going to get a complex about Roulette participation.  Maybe you've got the musical equivalent of the yips?

Maybe :lol idk it's been a while since I've been able to participate in one because I missed genowyn's sign up and I got eliminated during everminds prelims. Don't want that to happen again.
