Thought I’d start the discussion thread.
Round Starts Sunday at 13:00

Topic - Something that needs to be played loud!

had an idea come to mind as soon as I read the prompt, and I’ve usually just gone with first instincts

think we’ll end up with more noisy rock or more electro bangers?

Noisy sounds good to me! Rock or Electronic

Really excited for this one, spent all of yesterday putting together a shortlist, I bet whatever I pick gets 0 now

Probably be out running at 1pm Sunday so won’t be able to take The Rat.

Probably give my full 10 to whoever gets there first though

Come on, Belle & Sebastian! Your time shine!


Not that I’m thinking too much about Music League or anything, but I came up with my system for listening to this the other day.

I will set my volume low. If a song has me reaching to turn the volume up, I’m probably giving it points. I will go back to the original setting after every song. Science!

No points though for any cheesy things where the song’s just recorded quietly.

I’ve got one for this - the track I always use to test any new speakers.

Think I know what I’m picking for this but other possible options are gnawing at me

There’s a really easy way to get 10 points from me on this one. Just leaving that out there.


hmm considering changing a 7 min+ entry down to one under 3 mins given the chat in the other thread

But what if we want to get more than ten points in total?

That might require systematic reform of the music criticism industry.

Don’t do it, long songs are the best ones.

Nah, just remember how Avalon Emerson swept aside all* of those 3 minute losers.

Think this is going to be the hardest one to pick but also the best playlist in the end. Distortion is the best.


I’m hoping for a good amount of rattling sub-bass kick drums to balance out all the distortion

I say “my song”, but at this point it could be any one of four or five. They all start loud though.
