JAMESMAN ROULETTE 3.0 IS HERE

The rounds will be the same as last time. 9 rounds covering each year from 2015-2023 plus a final round to send anything from any of those years.

Remember, I missed out on a ton of music between these years. Get me up to date! I love hard rock and metal, but I really do love a lot of stuff beyond that as well. Harsh vocals should be well-suited to the song and not too much. I do like them but not always.

Points: I will use TAC's system as mentioned here: https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=43449.msg3047697#msg3047697

Banned list: The following artists are banned. I might update this within the next few days as well.

Dream Theater
Thrice
The Warning
Devin Townsend (newly added from the last roulette)
Frost* (newly added from the last roulette)
Power metal (I'm kidding, but good luck if you send it :lol)
I am not banning any other artists, even if they were sent previously. After seeing Caligula's Horse become one of my absolute favorites from the whole roulette, and then feeling just okay about "Graves", who knows if trying to strike gold twice with the same artist is the best strategy?

As I have said before, longer songs are not my jam unless they are a few very specific bands. I will stick with the 8 minute mark as a limit, but I was a little loose with this last time and it worked fine, so try to hit that but going a bit over is okay, just don't get crazy with it.

Additionally, here is the link to my spotify: https://open.spotify.com/user/highaerials36?si=73c6c42cf6484661

That link has a folder with all ten rounds from the last roulette, in case you want to see what was already sent.

Here is a link to my last roulette if you want to see how songs did from any round: https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=58443.0

Same format as last roulette?
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

In terms of rounds? Yes!

Might not double the points in the end, though. Ariich sent me a, well, let's say it was a very emotional letter (yes, on paper) stating how it was unfair that he might lose to Litho.

Yeah, this definitely happened.   :lol   Not to worry, I think Tomi's was my only winning roulette.  2nd or 3rd seems to be the new permanent ceiling now, Luke spoke it into existence.   :biggrin:

And because it's ineluctable now, congrats ariich!

James, as we have the same format as the last roulette, is there a chance you can post (on the OP) what was sent for each year, in the last roulette?

I would find it helpful to refer back to so I know what is off the table.

Ok, sent.  Since 425 went MIA, I'm going to use that strategy here - only sending acts that I've never used before in a roulette.

Or just paste the link of the post revealing the scores.  Or you lazy bums could take a few seconds and just do it yourself! Don't unnecessarily task a hard-working teacher and parent of two younglings - dude's gotta take care of enough brats without you all adding to his burden.   :lol :lol

There's a compliment in there somewhere, isn't there??  :D
