I know this is easy for all of you but I feel like I'm not doing it right and feel totally out of place.  :|

Not doing what right? There's nothing to do. Just sit back and wait for the scores for the first round.
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
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

The only etiquette you need to show is to have your submissions in on time for the next round to start. Usually that's 24 hours after the previous round's results are posted. If you've already submitted for Round 2, then you are more than good.

Yeah this, although I'm not too fussed about a 24 hour turnaround, personally. I always get a decent number of people who sent within that first day, enough to get started on listening, and as long as everyone else is in within a couple of days, we're good.

The other etiquette is just to have fun and not take things too seriously - it's all a matter of personal taste and hosts won't love everything they get sent, but they'll give everything a fair shot.

Not so much etiquette, but also there are different ways that people play. Some people just like to introduce the host to some of their own top favourites, others focus on what they think the host will like most, and some kind of balance those two. There's no correct way to play, although unless they have incredibly overlapping tastes then those who win tend to put at least some thought and effort into meeting the host's tastes/interests.

On which note...

Yeah on this, some people send the next round(s) ahead of time, but most people prefer to wait until the results of the current round so they have the fullest/most up-to-date understanding of what the host is responding to more or less positively. Your round 2 and 3 submissions look fine to me although I've not yet checked that round 2 is "lighter" than round 1 in order to meet the theme. Feel free to send others early if you wish, or equally you're welcome to wait until we actually reach that round and factor my ratings/reviews into later submissions, whatever you prefer - again there's no correct way to play. :)

I feel confident that you will find round 2 is lighter than 1. If its an issue let me know, and again, thank you all for the guidance. This is fun. My true "heavy" hasn't shown up yet. I'm trying to have fun but be strategic to what it seems your tastes are. The next heavy round all bets are off.  :metal

Edit: I resent round 2. Round 3 is fine.  :tup

My tastes aren't that easily defined, really (as all my regulars will tell you!). Certainly they're less dependent on genre/overall style than I think most people. Melodic approach is a big driver. Certain aspects of performance (like vocal delivery) and production can also make a big difference, as can specific stylistic choices.

My RYM is hopefully reasonably helpful, although it doesn't explain why I rate things the way I do. If you haven't already you could also have a skim through the results from my v6 roulette especially, and to some extent my v7 although that was focused on older music. That's arguably a less complete picture but at least my write-ups give an indication of what speaks to me and what doesn't.

My v6 is here: https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=55161
My v7 is here: https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=56863

--------------------------

By the way, a bit of an aside that's not about the roulette but might be of interest to people. Earlier in the year I had a mini "project" whereby I dipped, to varying extents, into everything I'd previously rated lower than 3 stars (unless I did so recently) to see what I think now. I had quite a lot of ratings going as far back as 2007, and I've found a few occasions in my last couple of roulettes where I've been prompted to revisit something and found myself liking it a lot more. In the past I've gone through phases of being down on certain styles or genres, but the past few years that's not really been the case anymore and I'd judged a lot of things unfairly.

Anyway it was a really interesting and enjoyable project and I found a new appreciation for a lot of stuff I'd written off. In a few cases things jumped up above the coveted 4-star line. On the flipside there were some cases where I'd been far too generous to things that I actually find pretty unpleasant to listen to. :lol

I might at some point extend this to things I've rated higher, especially in the 3.0 to 4.0 star range where I suspect there will be more of a mix between things I've been unfair on and things I've been too generous towards.

Anyway in terms of relevance to this roulette, I guess the key takeaway is that the things that are still rated low in my RYM, that really is what I think of them.

There‘a no right or wrong. You just send the tunes you think the host will like, then sit back and enjoy the ride!

Tom's like a 14-year old trying to unhook a bra for the first time.

So how many White Lion albums did you buy as a result??   :lol :lol

Got a bunch of writeups done today so pretty confident results will be tomorrow. All in all this was a strong first round and I didn't dislike anything. Some scores have settled quite a bit higher than I thought they might, some lower, and for some my opinion hasn't changed even slightly from my first impression. :lol
