I forgot to post this, though it doesn't actually matter all that much yet. Here are the bonus star rankings.






Tyrias

Well, better no star than a black one :P.

Also, I just got that you you can only get one of the bonus stars if the song gets another star as well.

Wait, what? I don't remember that in the rules.

That's incorrect, I will award bonus stars to any song even if it isn't going to receive any other stars.

So I almost got coal star :o now I know what type of song nit to send in future rounds.

Well, I guess my reading comprehension just after waking up sucks :lol.

Two questions regarding the world-music star: Does nordic folk count? and does a polka influence?

Very tempted to send a very long song for my one free pass length-wise, but I guess there's always a bigger risk with those. More to digest in the same amount of time..

EDIT: Scratch that, sent something else

I'm not sure how nordic folk is differentiated from any other folk. I wouldn't consider folk in general to be world music but I don't really know how the nordic variety differentiates stylistically. The answer depends upon how significant the difference is. But I'm leaning towards no.

As for polka, I'm leaning towards allowing that.

Tyrias

Nice, you might just get something with strong polka infuences then some time in the future.

Yeah I should have done that. I'm on it.


Evermind

Sent, hopefully I won't have to resend because I won't be there tomorrow. My song is available for at least two different bonus stars and it's more than 11 minutes in length. It also deserves some additional bonus points for some very particular reason.

We'll see how it goes.

I'm just waiting on one person now. No reason to hurry though, I won't be able to start listening until tomorrow afternoon/evening anyway.

Elite

Sorry, that's me. I was a little demotivated to send right away after receiving the coal star :lol
I have a busy weekend as well, but I'll try to send today!

#650
Fourth is probably Lindsey Stirling - Shatter Me (feat. Lzzy Hale).

And I think the 7th one could be Anneke van Giersbergen - Drive.

And the 8th one is Almanac - Darkness / Hands are Tied. Insider's information once again.

The bonus stars being awarded this round: Two ruby and one aquamarine.


Evermind

Shit, someone else went with ruby. Can I change my bonus? :lol

I don't want to change my song, only the bonus awarded. :P

Well, whatever, as long as I get at least a gold star this round.

What happened to mine? 

Bolsters

Sorry, I forgot about it. I didn't get around to listening until today and had to check several songs for eligibility, I apparently didn't make a note of yours. So the bonus stars are actually: Two ruby, one aquamarine, and one peridot.

Well since there's peridot star too now, there's no point in changing my bonus anymore. :P

Other guesses:

1: Knifeworld - Staring at the Sun
2: Anthriel - Cheat
5: Stigmata - Elevator
9: Dead Dried Fish - Where Are Seas
10: Mr. Big - Addicted to That Shit

3rd is mine and I think we've got the others.

Your 2 is my song, and you got one letter right  (the A). I'm sure you know the band, not so sure about the specific song.
