No still didn't get it. Maybe try to PM it to me or just PM me the band and song title.

I'll give you .0025 bonus points for your inconvenience

Big Hath

well crap.  I'm sending it to these three guys, which one are you?

To keep Chads "drip" going, I should have R3 results posted Thursday!

Actually I have some time today, so I'll post R3 results.  Some great tunes this time around.

TAC:

Alice Cooper: What do you want from me-  I will have the same review for both Tim and EM.  I'm a big fan of both Alice Cooper and the Scorpions from their classic era, but from what I've heard, both have been somewhat inconsistent from the mid 90's onward.  This tune, along with the Scorpions tune, is great stuff.  Both would fit in well with their classic era material and I enjoyed both.  Very catchy!  8

Evermind:

Scorpions: 321- See above. 8

Lowdz:

Tyketto: Forever Young-  This is a band name that I've seen many times over the years, but never checked them out.  This is fantastic early 90's melodic metal.  Just the classic sounding voice for this era of music.  I would be interested in seeing what Brent rates this song and album, because to me, this song is Brent 101.  Great choice! 9

Wolf:

Iron Savior: Heavy Metal Never Dies-  I've liked everything that I've heard from Iron Savior.  If ACDC is paint by the numbers hard rock, then Iron Savior should be in consideration for paint by the numbers heavy metal.  This is a band that plays straight up heavy metal and will likely never change up their formula.  And why bother, they kick serious ass.  Kade, check out their version of Priest's Desert Plains.  8.5

Fluff:

Sepultura: Stronger than Hate- This is another band that I've seen the name of probably hundreds of times over the years.  I've never been the biggest fan of thrash.  Slayer, Overkill, Testament (the loudest band I've ever seen live) are great bands, but when it comes to thrash, its usually the vocals that bring it down for me.  This is the same case with Sepultura.  The songs is heavy as heck, but the vocals don't do much for me.  Still a cool song.  7

Chad:

Empires of Eden: Hammer Down- This song is pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty good.  Actually its more then pretty good, its freaking awesome.  How did I not know about this song before??  Rob Rock, Steve Grimmett, UDO, among others singing on this kick ass tune.  Just a fantastic, screaming slab of pure metal!!  My favorite song of the roulette so far.  10

Brent:

Liege Lord: Fallout- I've liked what I've always heard from Liege Lord, but for whatever reason, never bought anything from them or listened to them at great length.  This is just pure heavy metal delight.  Brent described it as Bruce Dickinson fronting KTA era Metallica.  What a great description and fits it perfectly.  Liege Lord is classic metal 101 and alot of bands like them just seem to have a cult following just like alot of straight up metal bands from the 80's like Breaker, Warlord, Banshee, Grim Reaper,Agent Steel, Omen, Malice, Vicous Rumors, Shark Island.  Didn't fit into glam or thrash, just meat and potatos metal.  Awesome stuff and just behind Chads song from R3 for my favorite so far.  9.5

Splent:

Toto: Girl Goodbye- I know a few songs from Toto.  I don't mind Africa and I actually really like Hold the Line.  I've never heard this song before.  Good classic rock song.  Has a touch of prog and I maybe sense a touch of disco lol.  Not something I would listen to often, but I liked it.  7

Hath:

Moon Doc:  Watching Your Way-  Hath double dipped with Wolf and myself but sending us both this song.  Wolf had a good description for it and gave it a mid 9 review.  I probably wouldn't rate it that high, I still thought it was a great kick ass tune! 8.5

Boo-fucking-YAH!

On my phone, so nw Seinfeld celebration gif unfortunately.

Now we all just need Brent to stumble, as he's already starting to run away with this. Got what I think is another great one lined up for this round.

That's why I've designed the Japanese bonus point feature. So nobody will ever be completely out of this roulette. So I'm telling you there's a chance.

And Chad, for getting a solid 10, I expect 3 Seinfeld gifs later

 I had a feeling that you would think it was OK but it went rock quite enough, so I expected a score like that.

I'm sending a possible bonus round for my next submission. I was at the site between the three or four possibles LOL

I wonder if I will ever get anything else than 8 in this roulette. Maybe I should send David Gilmour and get a 7. :lol

Will send a tune this evening.

Still trying to decide what song to send. Gah! I'll send something sometime today. I THINK I know which one I'm going to pick.

Definitely Brent 101 ten years ago but these days a classic album that I havent listened to in ages.   Definitely at the softer end of my taste these days , where it takes strong unique song writing and a stellar vocal to impress.  This song has both , so yeah.  It's one of 2 or 3 standouts on the album.

This brings back memories of one of my better shopping expeditions - Tyketto's Don't Come Easy and Vinnie Moore's Meltdown as a gamble from a bargain bin.  $8 for both.

Back to business - it surprised me that a recent release has trumped mine so I need to try and hear that song.  I do have that album at home (unlistened to)  but am still on the road for the next 2+ weeks and have limited music with me.  Will try YT etc......and see if I can inform my next choice with what makes it a 10/10.  I wasn't expecting anything so good on that album otherwise it wouldn't be sitting back home  :)

You liked the Tyketto more than I would expect too JJ , so that will give me the confidence to send something I was 50/50 on in terms of its heaviness.

Will try and get something done tonight , if not in the morning.

There are 3 or so very good tracks and a few average ones on the album, but a great voice will go a long way.
I've gone with the metal this time though  :biggrin:

jjrock88

Yeah I found the Tyketto to have a similar vibe to maybe a Harem Scarem or House of Lords; that early 90s melodic metal sound.

I just need a song from EM, then everyone is in for R4.

I will say that two people have sent songs from the same band, but different selections. So like with Wolf, I'm good to keep both!
