Unacclaimed V: Heats, Week 11

The way this game works is that you will be given two 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 to the semi-finals. 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 the six highest scoring non-winners in the heat stage (based off point per voter and then percentage of first place votes) will also advance to the semi-finals.

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

The first few voters had my Mills Brothers last, but I see a couple of firsts and a second now.

By the way, in case some of you do not realize this, the only instrument on the Mills Brothers record is a guitar. All the stuff that sounds like horns is done with their voices.

I found it difficult to pick between Billy Nicholls and Suuns. These were my favourite tracks of the week. Agalloch was the next best.

A bit of a down week for me, with an average of just 5.875, the second lowest, ahead of just Week 4.

1, 2 and 3 far better for me than all the others. A strange week with unusual songs.

Another week where I like everything. Felt strange to put Billy Nicholls at #5, since that album is one of my favorites. ("It Brings Me Down" would've won both groups.) I wish the nominators for this game were the music critics! :D

A special mention should be made to the playlist above. The way the first three songs flow into one another is great, as if these songs belong on the same album. From that viewpoint it is a blessing Cup of Dreams isn't on Spotify. Nagasaki breaks the flow completely, which is a shame, as The Lost Sky would've worked pretty well as the fourth track.

I thought all four of these were great. The Voice doesn't develop as well as the others in the end, which puts it last, even though I've noticed I have soft spot for the Celtic New Age type vocals Quinn uses.

Nagasaki is not my thing - it is one of these old-time songs that mostly seem to exist because foreign language locations sound silly to American ears, but otherwise this is a very solid group, even if it is not as great as the one above. Except The Lost Sky, which is my nomination. I love the unconventional rhythm Jesca Hoop uses, which sounds to me like someone is spinning around and around in a jerking fashion. That whole album - Memories Are Now - is amazing if you ask me.
