Unacclaimed V: Semi-finals, Week 2

Post by Bang Jan »

The way this game works is that you will be given two sets of five songs, your job is to rank each of the sets from best to worst. First place gets 5 points, second gets 4 etc.

The song with the most points in each set will advance to the Grand Final. If there is a tie for points, then the song with more first place votes will advance. If they are tied on first place votes as well, there will be a sudden death tiebreak. No repechage from here, it's win or go home!

Feel free to ask any questions, deadline is next Wednesday at 15:00 UTC.

This is my favourite set of songs of the the three weeks of semi finals. And it made for some tough choices, especially between my 1st/2nd in each of the groups.

This is problably going to be the best week for me in the whole game. I have to go against my own nomination ("Walking in the Rhythm"). "In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion" is my winner because of several amazing sections compared to one epic flow. And after all, it is two minutes longer.;)

I also love "Distance", so the rest of group 1 was easy to rank. Group 2 was quite hard to rank though - really good all over.
