Pretty weird, but it ended better than it started. Still, wouldn't want to listen to it all that much. 5/10

So, I know you guys aren't big on anything that doesn't have a distortion pedal or is 98% electronophonic. Nonetheless, I hope you guys will keep an open mind for this one, especially given the artist. I heard this for the first time this past week, and I was blown away. Love the gospel influence on this one.

[/quote]actually I enjoy this sort of stuff. not what I usually listen to, but it's still good stuff, and he has a gorgeous voice. 8/10

just for the electrophonic quip, though... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dl98kUWgQrc

Actually enjoyed that one. 8/10

A song that I was singing off and on today, despite not having heard this song in so long.... just out of the blue, this song struck.

Let me get back in here. Well it had a nice beat, but on the whole it just wasn't clicking for me. Maybe I'll have to give another listen at another time. 5/10

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

7.8, too much Hooch and not enough Turner. :v

Likewise, I have this- Captain NRK's theme in all its German Industrial glory. :v:

... didn't like that one that much, and you know, I thought I would. 4.5/10. :/

And if we're going to be listening to bot theme songs, here, take Vesta's. :P

Not being even a dilettante of metal, though I do enjoy it, I just thought this was a pretty generic sound. Still, not bad. 6/10.

Since moving to Bellingham, I get reception for CBC2 and am enjoying a lot of the adult-alternative out of Canada. First one I found that I loved.

A little underwhelmed. They've got a sound that kind of a cross between '60s beach music and '70s soul, like solo Teddy Pendergrass or something. All the same, wasn't vibing on it too much. 5/10

Some more Adult Alternative from Canruckia.

Video wasn't available, but a quick description search yielded the results I wanted.

And I actually really like Sam Roberts. Song wasn't as good as The Gate though, but it was still nice. 7/10.

Now, for some Mastodon.

Still, I do think it works well for Captain NRK-- like, you've got the obvious subject matter, but then there's also the marching beat to it that's quite reminiscent of its walking mechanism and the power behind the spinner.

The one there's a little bit slower than I expected, but it's certainly quite interesting. 7/10 from me, but I might give Mastodon a bit more of a look in the future.

Anyway, here's my next one...'cause you know that I can. :v:
