Re the aquamarine star , how are you defining "driven by pop" music.  To me "pop" = any sort of pop(ular) music that made Top 40 etc.....and when I was growing up that included hair metal  ;D
Synth/Electronic: This one is a bit more broad since I didn't want a purely electronic category that only one or two people would exploit and get some easy high-valued stars from. On the synth side of things I will accept rock songs containing guitar, but the primary instrument must be a synth. Rush's mid-80's output is a good example, as is a lot of Van Halen stuff. I'm also accepting pop music here aswell but only if it is synth-driven; guitar-driven pop songs won't be eligible. On the electronic side a couple of tips: I find a lot of electronic music to be quite repetitive and I'm not fond of that, you'll do better to send songs with some variation in them. I'm a stickler for good production in general but especially so when it comes to electronica. Finally, I do like instrumental stuff but my favourite electronic albums generally feature vocals to some extent.

Thanks Chad




Sorry David - missed that.  I have plenty of synth driven stuff with guitars too -  60/40 so I might run a song or two by you if in doubt.

I'm not colorblind as far as I know, but I have trouble distinguishing diamond, silver and pearl stars too. I can see the diamond one if I try hard enough, but the latter two are very similar. Still, it's going to be obvious when the silver or pearl star is awarded.

They look nothing alike to me. Perhaps your screen's contrast/brightness settings make them look more similar to you.

Yes.

Blurry time the second.

Well I've heard Creator and Breaker (thanks to Chad) and it was not bad. I probably got the track name wrong but it's definitely "Something and Breaker".

Yeah... that would've been a big rock-block.  Was thinking that would be a great tune to send, and cover a couple of stars in one song.  Guess I'll scratch that one off.

I can confirm this. Don't wanna brag or anything but my cousin is the brother of The Big Kanye West Project's drummer, they played both of these songs as an encore when I was backstage at their latest tour.

You aren't wrong though, black metal isn't my thing. For one, the production is generally horrendous. :lol Caladan Brood is one of a few anomolies where I like it somewhat despite it coming from a genre I don't listen to.

As for results, they will more than likely be posted tomorrow. I'm still having a hard time deciding where a couple of these songs will rank, one of the songs I still haven't even got a grasp on at all yet and so it's been sitting firmly at the bottom of the ranking - I like to give the songs I like the least more listens though so they have a better chance to grow on me, but I can't see this particular song moving up at all.

I'm also putting a lot of thought into where the pink star cutoff will be. On one hand I want to be a little more generous with them than I was in my first roulette, but I don't want to be handing out five of them every round either. The way I choose to award the pink stars this round is important as I need to be consistant about how I award them throughout the roulette, and how I do so here will define how they are awarded for the remainder. Anyway, one or two of you will probably have rather positive writeups but no pink stars, I'm not just going to hand them out to everything I like, it matters to what degree I like something.
