Evermind deserves a 25/20.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

I'm actually surprised no one tried to send Winger....

So True!!!  :lol

I tried to send the powerest of Power metal, but Pup rejected it.
The album you wanted to send is a definite 10/10 album.

Parama: East of the Wall - The Apologist
TAC: Daydream XI - The Grand Disguise
Jingle: Frameshift - An Absence of Empathy
Train: _re__a_e_ - E__t_ __a__
Tomislav: Saor - Aura
Evermind: Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. I

Guessed letters: D A T E R S

Parama waits 2
Jingle waits 1

I find it fascinating how the finalists are split evenly in tastes - 3 power/prog dudes, and 3 <*I*-dont-know-how-to-classify-them> dudes.

Ding DIng Ding, we have a winner!

My music tastes are pretty all over the place. All of you finalists have sent some seriously awesome stuff throughout the roulette.

So here's the final batch of albums

Parama: East of the Wall - The Apologist
TAC: Daydream XI - The Grand Disguise
Jingle: Frameshift - An Absence of Empathy
Train: Greyhaven - Empty Black
Tomislav: Saor - Aura
Evermind: Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. I

I've only listened to 2 albums so far, but I should get some heavy listening in over the weekend. Of the 2 albums, one was a little meh, and the other was pretty decent.

I'm flogging the floof out of it because it's my AOTY man what should I do not share the awesomeness with everyone else?

It really should, moreso than Puppies tbh, listen to it more

:hifive:

I love that power/prog has equal chances with black/death metal to score well in this roulette.

Not expecting much score-wise for Helloween, but I really needed to send that album once I knew it wasn't banned.

Some tidbits after a couple listens

- Not much stood out
- This is pretty cool, but perhaps a bit over long
- I feel I should like this more than I do
- I like the vocals, they remind me of another band
- This is really cool and moody and I love how the band lets the music breathe
- Some of the coolest riffs all roulette

Likely mine. It's 77 mins and ends with a 23 min epic.

I'll fight you for it... mine is 12 tracks / 74 minutes.  I was worried about the thought of it 'dragging on', but since I wasn't in contention for 1st place, I went with it anyway.

Otherwise ...
- Not much stood out - I hope I'm not this one ... the album is pretty diverse (imo)
- I feel I should like this more than I do - potentially, but I'll bet it's Keepers
- I like the vocals, they remind me of another band - Skid Row?
- This is really cool and moody and I love how the band lets the music breathe - doubt it's mine
- Some of the coolest riffs all roulette - doubt it... maybe Daydream XI?

My album is 34 minutes I think? I found that I don't really care about the score it gets (it was the opposite for the EP, I really wanted my EP to score well), because I know this album is great. Maybe dated, maybe not for everyone, but it is for me.

I mean I know what I sent is great but if it scores bad I lose the roulette and I actually have a shot at winning for once so

I don't think it's really possible to lose by 2.7 points in this round unless you send total crap or some controversial album, especially when you had a streak of 9 and 9.5s and your tastes align with the host. And I consider Keeper pt. 1 to be controversial because older albums often get shitty scores in roulettes for production and other stuff.

If the round was out of 10, yeah
But it's out of 20, the difference between an 8 and a 9.5 in a normal round is 3 points in this round  :corn

But you're probably the closest guy to Puppies' tastes-wise from the remaining participants. You're fine.

On this topic, I'm planning on revisiting pretty much every song that was sent in the context of their respective albums and seeing if the ratings change and providing new scores. It will probably be a few months after the roulette ends, since I have a ton of 2018 releases to catch up on. I've fallen behind running this roulette.

tbh I would think you'd like the exist album a fair bit, the first half of writhe is just the heaviest part of the album and all lol
I really should've just sent If or When I'd be like, 3 more points in the lead than I currently am  :corn

I'll agree with that tbh but puppies hated the heavy :V
If or When is basically Writhe if it didn't have the heavier stuff tbh though it also doesn't have that great outro

I wouldn't go so far as to say I hated the heaviness. It was just executed poorly, in my opinion. The outro is great though.
