the last place is looking to be around the same score as last round’s too though :neverusethis:
Surely, you must be joking  :(

I think he was talking about the score, and not the person.

Probably me..but I like my song. ;D
Sorry that was unclear hahaha, yeah, I mean the lowest score is probably going to be around the same score as the previous lowest score

The place where the train observes you sounds like Soviet Russia

Shuffling not my music library but my Favorites playlist on Spotify:

The Comet is Coming - Because the End is Really the Beginning
Susanne Sundfor - Darlings
Sigur Rós - Untitled #5
Baroness - A Horse Called Golgotha
Rammstein - Das alte Leid
Myles Kennedy - Love Can Only Heal
Jakob - Pneumonic
Slowdive - When the Sun Hits
Riverside - Beyond the Eyelids
clipping. - Story 2

:2metal:

I actually may send some of these artists :lol

Okay, all songs are in. I listened to everything twice except for the new tune, but will do that today and then post first impressions, all the songs, and comparisons tomorrow or later today if I feel like I have a good idea of where the songs will end up!

My guess is this round will be slightly weaker than the last one. Lower low and higher high, but a couple more around the lower end of the middle pack..      probably.

Althea - The Art of Trees
Frank Ocean - Nights
Capstan - We'll Always Have Paris
Magic Dance - In Their Eyes
Major Parkinson - Night Hitcher
Dissona - Totality
Death Grips - Hacker
Ihlo - Starseeker
Mother of Millions - Artefact
Kontinuum - Moonshine

Very meh throughout, nothing that makes me go: YES! and it goes on for too long.

An overall nice atmosphere and good first impression, it still blurs together a bit in my head though.

The singer reminds me a lot of someone else, but that's not a good thing.

The atmosphere is great, it's nothing new but is pretty good at what it does.

The production is near flawless, but I'm just not that into the main body of the song.

Epic. Would be pretty surprised if this doesn't end up winning the round.

Don't like what's going on vocally, it's a pretty well structured song though.

The mix sounds a bit off, but I can look past that since the music is pretty sick.

I wonder why people keep thinking I would like this!! I really don't.

Hardly remember anything other than there were some okay riffs, this one will need quite a few more spins to grasp.

Nope, I did have them down as an option but wouldn't have sent this song. Katt might have sent it?

Ok well if it wasn't me, you or t'other Rich, then the only other people who commented in the Ihlo thread a few months ago were Lucas and Ruslan. So... one of them maybe?

Imagine listening to bands without commenting in the band threads :neverusethis:

I've actually heard almost half of the bands that were sent this round before this roulette. Either one album, or just a couple songs. All the songs sent are new to me though!

I mean, correct on mine, I posted that album in the listening thread about a week or two ago.

You're also getting this track most probably unless I settle on something else which I have two more days to do, I'm still not quite happy with my EP

Also Katt posted he didn't send Ihlo a few posts back, so there's that :lol

Not a fan of the new Oh Hiroshima.. In Silence We Yearn is one of the best 'straight-forward post-rock' albums I've ever heard though!

Kontinuum is puppies
Ihlo is Elite
Major Parkinson is Bolsters

NO!

Puppies is correct, updated above
