Neat.

Glad to see Graves left a somewhat lasting impression from last time!


Well it is hard to forget! Like I said at its actual write-up, it's a rather intense song divided into four chapters. It's certainly an experience.



====================

#297 (#296):

Octogram - TOBACCO - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68SXdXNZ_ec

Nominator: GameBopAdv (9/9)

(1.5, -0, 0)

[This was a song. No further comments.]

Was it a song? I never dislike it, but I never remember anything about it either. It's nice enough, but it needs...something? Anything? It's like the intro of a great song, that then repeats itself over and over for three minutes while forgetting to play the actual song part.

...and no, I don't really know what a score of "negative zero" means either. It just felt appropriate at the time.

[Final Thoughts: I do somewhat like the lower tones used in the track, I think they start around :56? I've never really thought about it, but I think I like the general vibe those notes and tones are giving off. There's just not much else going for the track; it still feels like an intro or a backing track, with a rather large part that's been cut off. The song just doesn't feel whole to me, for some reason.]

====================



====================

#296 [#294]:

Song: Preußens Gloria (prussia glory march)
Origin: Johann Gottfried Piefke
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_6AQA4uzD0

Nominator: handsomeboy2012 [15/15]

(1, 0, 0)

[This style of music really isn’t my thing. It could inspire a bit of a history lesson, the nomination is all “don’t you wanna learn about the victory that inspired this music?”, but I...don’t have any particular interest in learning about that war, thank you.]

Can't think of anything I want to add to that right now.

[Final Thoughts: Between my general disinterest in classical music and my distaste for military themes, this song was going to have to be really great to overcome all the biases I had against it. The low placement kinda says it all.

It avoided last place because... well, at the time, I was feeling more generous to something being educational. Like, even if I don't particularly want to research that point of history, I could vaguely appreciate that it was offering a jumping on point to learning something. Today... I think I'd probably flip this one's place with Octogram (or possibly move Octogram up a couple more spaces--not many, but it provides a chance to try to consider what it is about those tones that I find appealing, which is probably more than can be said for a few other songs?)

Huh. Don't take this the wrong way, but I didn't know there were so many of us hanging out on this board.

...And I missed song #298.

====================

#298 [#299]:

Name: Verbal
Origin: IGPX [Amon Tobin, MC Decimal R.]
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svcbNbcs5gs

Nominator: Flamander/Glacier (14/15)

(1, "negative. Not negative any specific number, just negativity itself.", 0)

[Usually I like chaos and altered vocals, but I don’t like this.]

This is one of many songs that I don't have any specific reaction to. I wouldn't say I dislike the song, it just kinda...exists. I'm not sure why I was so brutal with my second score as this song doesn't deserve it, but I also don't feel compelled to move it any further up the list.

====================

Just pretend that was posted a few songs ago, like it was meant to.
