YOU decide which songs for the next group 4/28 pt 2

Here's the deal. Each friday I start a playtest/review group that agrees to do a song from each reviewer.

The goal is that each person does the song from everyone else's list to help get a group of songs through and into the store, instead of all of us just hitting songs willy nilly.

So this week I have five very solid songs, that I love equally and can't decide which one I should nominate for my choice of the week.

So I'll leave it up to the forums.

I'll post a poll that will run until tomorrow morning. One with the highest votes I'll use as my choice.

Though honestly all five songs are very solid, and any one of them would make a kick ass addition to the store(hopefully all five of them will be soon, but I digress).

Crash Years by The New Pornographers

I can find NO videos for this song. But it's awesome. Trust me ;)

    Awesome! This is the first I've heard of The New Pornographers releasing stuff on RBN. I hope they release some Twin Cinema tracks too!

    as much as i like the polls, i personaly think you shouldnt put known extremely popular bands as a choice, they are gonna get plenty of people looking at them without the extra support

    I take that into account when I do the polls.

    If a song has gotten a decent amount of reviews I'll exclude it from the polls.

    Which is why we usually don't see bands like this on the polls.

    However this week neither one of them have gotten any attention yet, hence their inclusion ;)

    Plus at the end of the day, this is about me pushing songs I want into the store so I usually go for songs that I'll enjoy. This poll is for my choice in the review threads, so even though there is a lot of choices each one of these songs I wouldn't mind owning.

    Without going into too much detail there needs to be a certain amount of time left on a song so people have enough time to get in their test at any time during the week long period. So there were some other unknown songs I would have liked to put up instead of the mega popular ones, BUT those songs would have ran out before the week was up and that wouldn't have been fair to the other testers.

    yeah, i agree with this.

    I mean, did you think this poll would end any other way than Evanescence winning by a landslide? Same with Finger Eleven in the other topic.

    Anyway, I voted New Pornographers (and Lazarus A.D). I was really surprised to see them on here, as I hadn't heard anything about them on RBN. It's also especially surprising that it's that song since the album it's from isn't even out yet.

    There's always a second group, so second place(or third if there's an issue with second like last week) gets used as well ;)

    *sigh* sorry folks but vote was made to keep the wife and sister happy... guess which band that was for :rolleyes:.

    I was just saying in the other poll maybe two votes would be a cool idea... im not sure if you can restrict it to two votes or not but if so i would have for Traveling Freak Show because im curious as to what its like :cool:

    Holy crap, "Crash Years"????

    I think I just died and went to indie heaven. I am so excited. I can only hope there's more where that came from.

    Lesser Man by Soil or Going Under by Evanesance tough choice, where as I knew right away I wanted Paralyzer from the other poll. Guess I'll go with Evanesance because of the massive lead they have over Soil.

    Another strong group this one. Think I'll go for Walking Away as it's the strongest of the two acts I've not heard of. Of course, I know I'm going to be waiting for around a year before it actually comes to PS3 if I'm lucky!

    Looks like Going under took this one.

    New pornographers will be used for the second group.

    Thanks for voting, and the next poll should be up on Wednesday.
