Apparently I didn't post my review of Vlad's list. I guess my intention had been to do so when I finished Bonnie's list, which obviously never happened.

A few songs I marked down as favorites: The Underworld song, Vse izmenietsya (which actually reminded me quite a bit of 90s U2) and Chlopcy. I was hugely into all of those. In general, the whole list was very solid, and I really had a great time while listening. I don't honestly remember how I felt about your last list, but if my gut reaction is correct, I find this to be a huge improvement for me from the last one.

I don't think I've heard his list yet.

Leo's forgotten brother. It's too bad, his list was epic.

Min's list is terrible, that's why she deserves 0.

Sent rankings for 3+4. Not going to get to 5 in time I'm afraid but I will listen and report back.

This group is by far and away the most even. 1st place has 48 points and 3rd and 4th place is tied with 45 points. There is a #1 and #2, but it wouldn't surprise me to see everything tied up by the end.

I haven't had time to do write-ups on these, but I have listened to everything, and sent in my rankings tonight.

I will definitely give more feedback, but for the moment I just wanted to say that the transition between Wagner and Thee Oh Sees was perhaps my favorite moment of the tournament, and I laughed out loud from giddy, WTF surprised joy, much in the way I did seeing Yoda fight for the first time at the climax of Attack Of The Clones. Sorry that YLB isn't around to read this.

More to come...

Not rushing through the lists themselves but rushing a bit through the reactions.

YLB: A very strong list with great song selection that seems just about the right length with where it's going. Having watched the first season of Twin Peaks this year I can now appreciate that song's use in this list. Definitely some stuff that has me wanting to check out more artists.

Sad Punk: A very groove-heavy list that has some really soulful moments in parts, though some of the moments seem rather distant because of the production style the list tends toward. Still, well constructed and relatively consistent throughout. As has been noted, the opening is a strong stretch in this list.

More to come.

Forgot to review Bonnie's list, but I really loved listening to it. Some portions didn't grab me, like near the middle, and TNGT are just the worst, but I loved the intro and I found the closing section unexpected and very surprising that it worked out in the end.

Vlad's list had some really cool songs on it. I'm not sure how much of it I will return to given that lyrics are a big part of my interest in music and half of this is in other languages, but there were strong tracks in the middle. Can't say I was much of a fan of the lengthy opening duo, though.

LJT's is one that could have used a little more length I think. That would have allowed him to try a couple other sounds. Not every short list feels short, but this one did. That said, he finds some good songs in the chosen mode and it flows nicely.
