It's for nerd stuff! Although I guess roulettes are also nerd stuff in a way.

I think I may have a bit too many dice though. :lol I'll send you a pic after the roulette is done just for laughs.

Wait, I'm old and a nerd?  :'(



would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

Everyone is in. 22 songs at just under 3 hours.

I'll post stats tomorrow along with the song list.

Listening has commenced, and by that, I'm going through Cyril's and 425's submissions to eliminate their Wild Cards.

And of their combined 6 songs, I actually have to listen to 4 total tracks. :lol



And we are still waiting for the Omnicient One to send..

Hey lookey there, it's right there in your PM. :lol

Well, that's good, because I eliminated the third one anyway. :lol

I didn't sent songs I think Tim could like, I sent songs I like. As I've been doing this whole roulette (at least for the bands I know).

Trying to guess what someone likes is bound to fail, as every man can confirm when he tries to find the perfect gift for his girlfriend/wife.  ;D

Must've been Kwyji sending all the wrong songs.   ;D

I think it's good to balance the two. I won't send something I don't like a lot myself. But if I like the artist then generally there's loads of things I like a lot, so the ones I send I'll try and tailor to the host in terms of things they might like and/or things I think give a good introduction to that artist.

I'm sending songs I like myself and think Tim might like as well. With a song you like personally, it's easier to see how/why someone else would like the same track as well.

 I rarely if ever have sent songs I'm not fond of in roulettes.

This.  Invariably, one could probably eliminate 1/2 of his output due to 1 of 3 reasons - not heavy enough; too long; too heavy-handed on the religiousness.

I'm kinda eager to see what's been sent.  I'm no expert on Neal Morse, but I've got a good number of his albums, and all SB.
If I can do it, it's idiot proof.

I sent 2 SB songs for the 3 reasons Jingle mentioned. There were a few I wanted to send from NMB but didn't.

I'm hyped about the next rounds since I know all 4 bands a lot more than the first 4.

All um..three of your songs were sent by multiple people.  All of them.

I don't think anyone did, actually.

Generally speaking, I don't either.  But it can get a little overly repetitive when you listen to a lot of NM/NMB for a prolonged period of time.

I've only listened to about 10 songs so far. I'll say this about The Call.

In the last two rounds, the most sent song was surprisingly underwhelming...

Interesting. Tim, what would you say his style is reminiscent to from our youth?  I always thought a mix of Kansas and Yes.  Both Morse and Meros (Spock's bassist) Played with Eric Burden in the early 90's before forming Spock's Beard.

I definitely hear Yes. I've heard Styx, Dream Theater, and Deep Purple so far.



Eric Burdon is awesome BTW. I consider The Animals as sneaky heavy, kind of like the first metal styled band, without quite the sound yet.

Ha, absolutely. That’s the kind of stuff I loved about Neal in the SB days.

Somehow I was not aware that Neal had done a Thoughts Pt V. Which album is that on?

Ah, I know that one but thought that was part III. Maybe there is no part III. There’s also Afterthoughts from SB that I thought was the last of the series.

There are some really good Spock’s songs in this round.  At The End Of The Day is, in my opinion, the definitive Neal era SB song.  Nick’s drumming is so damn good.
Though we live in trying times, we're the ones who have to try. -Neil Peart, 1952-2020.

There is a fundamental difference between filtered facts and firehosed opinions. -Stadler.
