Hmmmmmm okay I just woke up so maybe I didn't think that through...

Yes, you must send if you reserve. I'm officially locking it in as such.

Probably sensible, on balance. In that case, I probably won't go reserving as I have plenty of options to send, whereas if it had been optional I'd have been reserving just for the hell of it, and just in case. :tup

Yeah. If you reserve, you should commit to the part, otherwise it makes absolutely no sense balance-wise.

Definitely. Fa sho.

I mean it's whatever you decide as you're the host, but yeah... reserving and not using stuff because it scored badly would be broken af in my opinion.

Excited for the first impressions though!

Yeah, I didn't think that through entirely. I blame no coffee... ;)

Everyone solve the hangman and I'll have impressions, although I don't know what else to add until results which won't be till the end of the week :lol

Tim. Is there anything you DO like? Besides sucking and blowing.  :lol

I will say this first round is exactly what I was hoping for. A very diverse range of music with great fresh sounds. Fierce competition. Scoring will be hard as of right now

Crow

TAC you should post your results right away, if it's all so terrible  :corn

Technically I don't keep doing it, because I've only done it once.

Shouldn't you be seeing Handjob Sweatpants?  Easier access.

I will say it's still a bit unfair to the original sender, especially in a case where a band has several styles/sounds/eras (such as TOP).  I leaned a little heavier on old stuff, but if Katt REALLY likes the new stuff, king could just go heavy on that and rack up a big(ger) score.

ariich

That's a fair point.

Personally if I was sending Tower of Power (which I might have done), I'd have just sent some tracks from Soul Vaccination. One of those bands who are solid on record but outstanding live.

The Walrus

Well, nobody's reserved anything yet, so there's that.   :tup

I don't count it as a reservation unless I receive an explicit PM saying what is being reserved, fyi. And just because something does well one round doesn't guarantee another batch from the same artist will do so well, and that's not taking into consideration the other 18 sets of songs being submitted. I feel like there's lots of wiggle room here :tup

Do not underestimate my love for things that might be entirely wack to most people. When I said get weird, I meant it.

Definitely. But if this was metal, I'd rather smell Lance Armstrong's biking shorts. :lol

ariich

Splendid.

By the way are you going to post the completed hangman (assuming Evermind got everything right) or not bother?
