Seven pink stars already in two rounds. If this level of quality remains consistent, there's going to be a ton of those fucking things by the end. :lol

Awesome! :lol Yea I should've thought about it longer, though in all honesty you probably would've gotten Deadly Circus Fire from me in the end anyway, I actually thought the middle section would be my downfall as I could see people feeling it's misplaced.

Since the coal stars don't hold any direct penalties to the scores I might even have done better than most of the pink star people this round :lol depending on how much that pearl star is worth.

Will send soon, I'm more confident about this one.

Always happy if I am up near the top in the rock/metal stakes.  If I get beaten by genres I am clueless about then hey...it's gonna happen in a Bolsters roulette  ;D

Yeah, you've done well this round. You probably should grab a few more of those coal ones in the next rounds.
This first band is Soen very cool swingy jazz fusion kinda stuff.

I'm way ahead of you, I already just sent my second coal star to Bolsters!

Hope he doesn't reject it, otherwise I might have to send something that isn't coal star worthy.

if i had actually made it into the roulette i'd probably have two coal stars by now with how stiff the competition is looking

Pink star, cool :)
I'll probably send in 12h from now, won't rush it. Listening to those songs that got best stars could be good, maybe I'll like them and also to figure Bolsters' taste better (I'm still not sure about what you may like, 4 rounds in).

I have too many songs for the rest of the roulette to actually be able to send them all, so I'm doing a relisten and sending the best of those. This round is already set ins tone, though.

I'd rather you just stop sending shite.


Also, I've made a (hopefully) easier to read scoreboard, by adding some horizontal lines.

Unless of course a bonus star is worth more than a pink one.

Glad you liked the song! I guess I figured it was more violin driven than synth driven, though.

Also sent.

Aquamarine is also for electronica, so it would have qualified.

Diamond - 90 points
Gold - 65 points
Silver - 40 points
Any bonus star - 30 points (minus 5 for every person after 5 that has received one)
Pearl - 55 points
Pink - 20 points

Coal star - 20000 points :neverusethis:

 Man, I was hoping for at least a silver. Oh well. I'm glad you liked it.

 I am not sure what I am going to send yet. I'm not sure if what I will send is going to have a bonus star or not, I am still trying to decide the direction of what I should send you. I have about 10 ideas  :lol
I don’t know what to put here anymore

Totally fair assessment on mine. I'll gladly take a Pink star for that one.

Going big this time - if you'll allow it ... and trust me, you want to allow it.  Ruslan and Jon would concur (and Rich I think too).

Didn't you go big in that previous round? :neverusethis:

Sending in a few minutes, just need to decide if I want the bonus or not.

Edit: and sent. Went for some great female-fronted symphonic metal power ballad. I'm sure Chad and Brent will approve.

I'm just waiting on Elite to send now. Also I won't be able to listen to anything until later tonight, so I will verify bonus star eligibility then and let anyone know if their song is not eligible.

Also this round will probably be delayed somewhat, as I have received a 31 minute song.
