In 4th,

Jmurder3 submits Firesuite by Doves

Score: 8.4

A calming but spooky jam can work well too as heard here. Love the breaks with the high notes and especially the tremolo guitar work that starts at 1:50.

The vocals are pretty annoying. Instrumental is okay but nothing that caught my attention really ever showed up here.

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

In 3rd,

Bloobird submits The Seer by Swans

Score: 8.5

Quote:
A half hour long song, lols. I think this had the potential to win it all if it ended at around the first half. I loved every noisy and uncomfortable part about those first ~13 minutes. And then the song drags itself on for ~14 minutes playing these repeated sequences that were great... but I only wanted it for like 4 minutes tops. It was often hard to keep my attention. It redeemed itself a bit with that final singing section that was enjoyable. I didn't give myself the opportunity to listen to this in a dark, secluded room (just because that's taking a bunch of time out of my day), but I think I could have appreciated it more than I already do had I done so.

In 21st,

TheYoungBasedGod submits Sky Is Over by Serj Tankian

Score: 3.1

Quote:
Serj's singing sounds so bad and it took me having to sit down and critique songs for me to finally notice. Lalala part comes across as corny when I think he was trying to go for cool and 'out there'.

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

The piano, violins and creepy singing complement each other so well here. I really dig the whole scary folktale vibe this song has going on.

In 22nd

Gadarene's GF submits Handsome Devil by Parenthetical Girls

Score: 2.0

Quote:
If I was previously told there was a noisy, distorted cover of a Smiths song out there, I'd get pretty excited about it... But this is just painful. The guy's singing makes the song infinitely worse. And some people say they don't like Morrisey's voice! Well, at least it's not this. Sorry.

In 1st,

Nego submits Dark City, Dead Man by Cult of Luna

Score: 9.6

Quote:
And finally, a near 16-minute long song. The first 6 minutes are great but I'm not gonna really talk about that. It's the last 10 minutes that stomped on everything else. This is the only song that really made me feel lost. Like I was out drifting in a sea of black completely alone or something. It wasn't uncomfortable like a lot of the other stuff - it was soothing in a way. I loved how that section starts off with guitars that sound like sirens. And the slow trills during the outro were fantastic.

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

this was my first submission where I expected a heavy podium/antipodium sweat, definitely agree the first half of the track is the real gold

considered Tom Waits myself, solid pick

not heard #1 before, will listen when I get a chance

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

I thought the same thing about my submission, since I submitted something that at 13 minutes was obviously really, really, really long compared to everything else that would be submitted.

But alas I continue with my trend of failing miserably with (almost!) all of my predictions about how my songs will score.

Category #3 - Dreamin'

Submit a song that sounds like it came straight from a dream. We're lightening the mood here. Pleasant dreams, no nightmares. And I want dreamy, not just chill.

There is indeed very little to point out about this song, but I don't think that's the greatest thing in this case.

Score: 6.5

This varies from likable to slightly annoying for me. Think the latter stems from this being too uplifting for my taste.

In 15th,

CrimsonFox submits Dusk by Genesis

Score: 6.8

Quote:
This was mostly okay. Not enough happening to fully pique my interest. Maybe more harp was needed. Also, 2:50 was an utter tease. I thought it was going somewhere super cool and then it didn't. F*** you, Genesis.

Score: 6.9

I think this has the problem of not being very exciting to listen to if you're not totally focused on this + trying to get yourself in an uplifted mood. If so, then yeah, it becomes a pleasant listen.

In 12th

KarmaDope submits Planet Caravan by Black Sabbath

Score: 7.0

Seems like a great song to fall asleep too. Cool guitar solo at the end. Maybe would've like the vocals to continue during it though.

In 12th,

NeedMoreManasi submits Atlas by COIN

Score: 7.0

Quote:
This sounds like every other indie pop rock song! Decent enough.
