Should the max number of artists in the EP round be increased from 4 to 5?

Yes that would be much better and Cyril is very attractive.
3 (14.3%)
No that's a terrible idea, Cyril should be stoned.
5 (23.8%)
Whatever.
13 (61.9%)

Yes.

Okay!

I decided to send more obscure stuff in this roulette instead of sticking to the artists that are popular here. That's subject to change as the roulette progresses, but so far I'm going to send stuff from folks barely known on DTF.

I think I can narrow mine to 13, 14 or 15
It is indeed one of those.

Hopefully 15
Not 15, but all three of those are probably going to end up getting similar scores anyway. Take that however you like. :lol

I must be pretty out of touch, from the list, I've only heard of 5 bands including my own.

I'm at 7, but I've only ever listened to three - mine, yours and Riverside.  Well, I did listen to Monica whats-her-tits because curiosity after Katt getting heaved over the top rope because of her.  I've (regrettably) listened to Nick Cave twice now.  Sweet I know, but not these tunes.  VdG... never heard a lick of them, but familiar enough with the name.
I see discovering music you don't know as a large part of the point of roulettes. I'd only heard of 10 out of the 22 before this round.

I do that to some extent, but if I wanted to sample that much music, I'd *host* a 5th roulette of my own.  :biggrin:

Oh yeah absolutely, I definitely meant primarily for the host. :lol

Van der Graaf is LordCost
Indeed (he gave it away earlier in the thread).
I got the 'Area' joke earlier in the thread, I did not find time today to guess the Italian song names in the hangman too, it went too fast.

Mine I hope is among 9, 10 or 13,even if almost all the options are positive..

I did consider leaving those for you, but people had pretty much stopped guessing song names by that point so I thought I'd do the lot. :lol

And no, yours is not any of those three.

Round 1 first impressions

1. My ears! [Puppies]
2. My brain! [Indiscipline]
3. My heart! [Sacul]
4. I feel dirty.
5. This is rather lovely.
6. Bonkers and very entertaining.
7. Very pleasant background music.
8. Dark, dense, moody and pretty engaging.
9. Very epic, and varied but also consistent in mood.
10. Intense and a lot to take in, but pretty engrossing as well.
11. There's a lot to take in on first listen, but what a great sound.
12. Some very engaging and innovative stuff, if a little all over the place.
13. This isn't a genre I often find that exciting, but when it works, it works.
14. A solid example of the genre, if perhaps not particularly a standout one.
15. This is exactly what I expected it to sound like... and that's no bad thing.
16. Some lovely moments, but also others than sounded a little run of the mill.
17. Dark, dynamic and quite beautiful – early contender for favourite of the round.
18. This has a lovely warmth to it, and I liked this more than I might have expected.
19. A little on the cheesy side perhaps, but extremely enjoyable right from the first listen. [TAC]
20. Wasn't sure the vocals fit the music at first, but was thoroughly enjoying myself by the end.
21. A style you've sent me before, but this feels more immediately engaging than it sometimes is.
22. Not super immediate for me, but the newer tracks in particular sound like they could be up my alley. [Cyril]

Yeah, you shoulda re-posted them when you revealed them all!

Here they are, anyways:

I was going to (and would have done eventually), but then thought where would the fun be in posting them straight away. :lol

And yeah original first impression posts (with any reveals) will be linked in the OP, but I can't be bothered to also update subsequent quoting of it. :P

EDIT: Oh also to remind everyone of the obvious caveat that those were first impressions and subject to change with further listens...

Last update for today - pretty sure I've settled on scores, so just need to get write-ups finished. Results will therefore be tomorrow.

So start planning round 2, if you haven't already!

Got some driving to do tomorrow.  Perfect way to dwindle down some albums.
