9825/10000: Round 1, Week 2

Postby Bang Jan » Wed Nov 29, 2017 2:54 pm

The way this game works is that you will be given four sets of four songs, your job is to rank each of the sets from best to worst. First place gets 4 points, second gets 3 etc.

The song with the most points in each set will advance into the next round. If there is a tie for points, then the song with more first place votes will advance. If they are tied on first place votes as well, there will be a sudden death tiebreak. Also after the first round, the four highest scoring songs (based off point per voter so results are easier to compare) that didn't win a set will also advance to the next round.

Feel free to ask any questions, deadline is next Wednesday at 15:00 UTC.

For the most part I don't find myself getting very excited by these songs.

1 | Peter Tosh | Equal Rights
7 | The Blue Nile | From a Late Night Train
11 | Tricky Woo | Fly the Orient
12 | Canibus | Second Round K.O.

Equal Rights is perhaps the only great song this week, a masterful reggae track. The Blue Nile and Canibus feel weird to me, as if these songs aren't quite finished and I only hear part of them. Maybe they fit in a bigger album whole? Fly the Orient is rather standard rock, but not badly so.

5 | Kasabian | eez-eh
8 | P!nk | Just Like a Pill
9 | Soul Asylum | Somebody to Shove
15 | Tinie Tempah | Pass Out

Four songs I won't be putting on again very soon. Kasabian wins this easily. The other three I can take or leave any time.

6 | Michel Sardou | La Maladie d'amour
10 | Wild Nothing | Chinatown
13 | Miossec | Regarde un peu la France
14 | The Techniques | Queen Majesty

Again nothing that gets me going, but Michel Sardou has a nice melody.

2 | Rick Ross feat. Big Sean & Kanye West | Sanctified
3 | Björk | Violently Happy
4 | Charli XCX | Nuclear Seasons
16 | Armand Van Helden feat. Roland Clark | Flowerz

Easily the best group of the week, even if it contains the only truly bad song to me. The other three are more spirited than most here, outside of Equal Rights.

I'm violently happy to see Björk winning a tough bracket (but not that happy to see her facing Waltzing Matilda on the next round).
