Bulbs - Majestic 3 points repeating a comment from week 1: When I first started participating in BotB, I skipped instrumentals. They've grown on me.

Captain Beefheart - I'm Glad 0 points reminds me of a bus driver I had in grade school whose radio was constantly tuned to WOMC, Detroit's oldies station. I did like oldies, but not this one.

DigHayZoose - Dancing In Concert With The Infinite 0 points Mine.

Fox Capture Plan - Butterfly Effect 4 points See comment for Bulbs.

Happyness - Naked Patients 0 points Forgettable

Obits - Pine On 0 points Forgettable

Ravellas - Puppettes 1 point Started blandly, ended really well.

Roll The Dice - Assembly 0 points Hated this one. The two note thing really irritated me quickly.

Rosa Mota - Hopey 0 points thought this was an instrumental at first also. Should have been.

Velella Velella - Alex Boom Selector 0 points music catchy. Repetitive lyrics and "hey heys" bad.

Wolves At The Gate - Gravedigger 3 points I liked this one a lot. Not sure if my enjoyment is relative to the weakness of the round, or because I genuinely liked it.

Bulbs - Majestic 2 points good instrumental. i too can do without the scream. didn't think i'd like it at first but it got better as the track went on and it grew on me a bit

Captain Beefheart - I'm Glad mine decided to check out captain beefheart while looking for eligible bands (i know, i've been adding some more current acts to my listening rotation but non have been eligible). i was introduced to this song by the black keys' cover of it, which is more guitar driven and bluesy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VX11SNHnXNE

DigHayZoose - Dancing In Concert With The Infinite 2 points don't quite get the religious aspect of the lyrics. the vocals reminded me of a song from one of the earlier rounds, though i can't think of which. music was good, liked the little break with the bass notes.

Fox Capture Plan - Butterfly Effect 1 points ok instumental

Happyness - Naked Patients 0 points i liked the anal probe line but that was it

Obits - Pine On 3 points good, fun song. in a normal round 1-2, in this weak one, three

Ravellas - Puppettes 1 point i found the accent heavy but it doesn't put me off like it does AM.

Roll The Dice - Assembly 0 points i found this one ominous sounding, and not in a good way.

Rosa Mota - Hopey 0 points no thanks

Velella Velella - Alex Boom Selector 0 points lyrics reminded me of the song the kid in about a boy kept singing - "shake your ass"

Wolves At The Gate - Gravedigger 2 points another one with lots of screaming but it wasn't all bad, so i gave it two in a weak round

Bulbs - Majestic - 1 Point: Would've gotten more than 1 if the electronics at the start kept going all the way through. Instead, it feels like it's trying to cover all possible bases at once.

Captain Beefheart - I'm Glad - 2 Points: I liked it!

DigHayZoose - Dancing In Concert With The Infinite - 0 Points: All-time terrible band name and the song doesn't do much for me.

Fox Capture Plan - Butterfly Effect - 3 Points: Congratulations on your win, vividox. The percussion is right in my wheelhouse and it's a very uplifting song.

Happyness - Naked Patients - 2 Points: An enjoyable ch00n. The lyrics add the edge that the music is lacking. Vocals remind me of Smashing Pumpkins.

Obits - Pine On - 0 Points: A mess.

Ravellas - Puppettes - 2 Points: I liked it!

Roll The Dice - Assembly - Mine: This song makes normal situations ridiculously stressful. Like, imagine playing this while driving around a mall looking for a parking space. You start expecting to drive around a corner and see Godzilla.

Rosa Mota - Hopey - 0 Points: As others have said, the vocals ruin it. Could have gotten points with different vocalists.

Velella Velella - Alex Boom Selector - 0 Points: Was in consideration for my last point. It just wasn't the electronic song I was expecting to get.

Wolves At The Gate - Gravedigger - 1 Point: Actually reminded me of an angrier Nickelback at points but I liked it alright.

Bulbs - Majestic - 2 Points: Lots of fun elements to this one. The vocals remind of the Pixies.

Captain Beefheart - I'm Glad - 1 Point: Good nostalgic bluesy vibe.

DigHayZoose - Dancing In Concert With The Infinite - 0 Points: Kinda liked the music. Sort of a 90's grunge feel. But I just can't with the lyrics.

Fox Capture Plan - Butterfly Effect - 2 Points: Pleasant song with good instrumentation.

Happyness - Naked Patients - 3 Points: Reminds me of Yo La Tengo. Especially the goofy guitar solo. Turns out this album was mixed by a guy who has worked with YLT.

Obits - Pine On - 2 Points: Fun garage-y sound.

Ravellas - Puppettes - 1 Point: Don't mind the vocals and the song fits together really well imo.

Roll The Dice - Assembly - 0 points: This one grew on me a bit. Still takes too long to get where it's going tho.

Rosa Mota - Hopey - Mine: Always loved the energy in this one. Don't mind the vox.

Velella Velella - Alex Boom Selector - 0 Points: Nah.

Wolves At The Gate - Gravedigger - 0 Points: Not in my wheelhouse.

Thanks for running the show SSH!
