As long as he did it decent, I'd give it a try. I'm used to Cash's baritone.

I wonder if I'll get one. Probably not as I've never competed before.

The mix. Not the vocals, where passion is noticeable. Everything. The vocals being too quiet volume-wise. The instruments being drowned in effects that neuter the power. The whole thing.

i've got everyone from rounds one and two downloaded, along with irishteen/lemonchick, lmp, and lemonmelon since they emailed me their links. the only thing that's preventing me from listening to any of theirs is i don't know what round they'll be in, and i'm keeping a journal of the contestants from each round, in order.
Ahhh, so it'd be no use for me to send you my links?

Friends Are Evil is the most kill-likely song you've got.

No you will. It is simple math. Odd numbers means everyone will have a round off.

you can if you want. if i get to the extra peeps' track lists before the rest of the rounds are posted, i'll just make a sloppy copy with my scores for what i've listened to, and then just plug them in later.

They had a number of takes to choose from, too. The producer could've picked poor takes. Just listen to the "Wake up!" scream from the Bitter Kiss/Junk Day mixes.

You think so? Phanan's used Jesu tracks before, I think. Though Friends Are Evil is from the rather heavily drone doom eponymous album, while I think phanan's taken stuff from the more shoegazer-influenced Conquerer album.

But yeah, it is one of the heaviest songs I know. I expect I Am The Wooden Doors and Our Illuminated Tomb to hurt me the most.
