Good to see Tim isn't eliminated! Hopefully he will be eliminated in Parama's though. :biggrin:

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
You know that a mark of a great song is if TAC hates it with a special passion.

I'm happy to be able to send one more song but... why Nekov is eliminated instead of me?  :huh:

Same thing as in earlier rounds; the scores get added in order from lowest to highest, meaning Nekov hit the 20 points mark ‘before’ you.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

how is the EP round gonna be scored/do scores from previous rounds matter? i have to decide if it's worth bothering to even send something good or just send a meme song and see if it does well :neverusethis:

the structural disorder album is seriously good, yeah, drowning isn't even one of the better songs imo (but it's still good)

also hell yeah broke my streak  :metal

Yeah, I'm gonna have to listgen to that one.

Regarding the EP; from the first post: "In the event that there are more than 4 people left at the end of Round 8, everybody but the top 4 players gets eliminated. This is to ensure that this elimination game does not continue indefinitely and to set a maximum amount of rounds before the final EP round. Existing scores at that point will not alter your chances of winning the EP round whatsoever; you merely have to ‘make it’ to the EP round in order to play in the finals."

I haven't actually figured out how to score the EPs, but the different songs will obviously count, as will 'flow', which is quite a terrible thing to judge. When creating this roulette format, I envisioned the final round to be a game of its own, so that's why existing scores won't matter. Also, I thought (as stated in the R7 Results post) the scores would be far closer to each other, thus rendering the few points difference between the top 4 contenders obsolete anyway.

well, sorry for having too much good music apparently  :corn

Don't think I'll go with the meme one anyways even tho it's sufficiently weird & also pretty good but I'll decide tonight

And my EP is gonna be.... different

Nah Brand New doesn't have much material that compares to the second half of 137, this is the standout on the album to me. I also love a lot of other songs on the album (this is one of my favourite albums of the past few years) but most of them border more on the melodic side that you mentioned, rather than a super intense one. I probably wouldn't have sent Brand New if I knew you didn't like Devil and God :lol but I'm glad you liked some of it, the ending really is great.

I'll try to send tomorrow, but I completely fell in love with 2 albums by bands I had never heard of before (probably because they're both debut albums from this year), and I'm hoping to digest them and pick the best possible entry from them since the standings are super close and it's pretty important that I send the best possible thing.

I think Devil and God still had some of that emo-side from Deja Entendu/Daisy that Science Fiction does not. So because of that I can see people preferring Science Fiction, but personally Devil and God is still my favourite even though not by as big of a margin as most.

Limousine will forever be their best song though, there's no way they can top that.

There’s no rush in sending at all, I just landed in Romania and will be back home on sunday, so take all the time you need (until Sunday) to pick something to send.

I already got four submissionns; three more to go (though no hangmemes until Sunday anyway. And probably no listens either.

I saw White Walls in a pub yesterday, and I’ll see Haken later today, as wel as Zeal & Ardor, Leprous and Steven Wilson tomorrow. On top of that, Romania is a lovely country so far :D

I have no idea if it will be enjoyable live. I wasn’t overly impressed with Stranger Fruit to be honest.

Travelling back now, still missing two entries. I’ll reply to some of the PMs you guys sent regarding songs for Round 8 and EPs when I get back home this afternoon. In the meantime, if the few (2?, 3?) people who haven’t sent for Round 8 yet could do so, that would be great!

Hey, Sacul & LordCost.. I know I was away over the weekend, but surely 4 days ought to be enough time to send a song?

I'll start listening tomorrow afternoon (roughly 20 hours from now), so it would be nice to have them in by then. If not.. your loss :biggrin:

I only discovered that meme recently. While it's not necessarily the funniest (to me anyway, possibly just because it was a bit of a you-had-to-be-there thing), it's incredibly creative.

(not the lmgtfy, but the actual 'loss' thing. I guess I don't spend enough time behind a computer to fully comprehend)
