    Dat amount of my wishlist songs were getting... The final Supremacy track, Coulton and Anarchy Club all on the same week? Couldn't be any better!

    There's some really awesome stuff out this week. RBN impresses me more and more.

    If you like drumming, I recommend All the Hated. It's real fun on everything else too, but I especially enjoy the drums.

    If you like rapping mixed with female vocals, or not-that-difficult keys, go for I'm Dancing.

    Overall, a really strong week on both sides.

    No complaints over here...but I swear that Anarchy Club song was a half-price one.

    Rechecked and that's a no. It's correctly priced at $1.99.

    I think it has to do with 2 authors working with them. One charges 99 cents while the other charges 1.99.

    That sounds like a song for Cipher unless the only reason he likes Airplanes is because of the whole Hayley Williams situation.

    I always think of Airplanes when I listen to this song. The structure is pretty similar, vocal wise; the main difference in I'm Dancing! is the acoustic guitar backbone is stronger in the instrumental part.

    You can listen to (and download for free) the full song here.

    that's exactly it. TAG prices everything at 80 unless the band tells us otherwise, RGS prices everything at 160 unless told otherwise.

    as for the songs.. RJA! ADTR!

    And everyone should check out Adonai, it's great female fronted non screamy metal, and it's in both French and Hebrew. I believe this is the first song with Hebrew lyrics on RB.

    Hannukah Blessings has some Hebrew lines.

    And while I totally wouldn't do it either, it is kinda disappointing that we won't know how the songs officially do relative to each other. 'Cause this is probably as close to an A/B pricing test that RBN can have, and more data's always nice.

    You can get some idea from the leaderboards.

    I know, but it's not official, so you've always got that caveat of yea-but-not-really, so it's imperfect for data analysis, and... blah blah blah.

    Listened to all of the songs on the Xbox side.
    Definitely going to buy Relationship Sneakers (I was planning on it since it was announced) and not planning on buying anything else.

    Paging Ground Control, Crack My Head and Let the People Out, All The Hated, and Coming Undone were really interesting though.

    Loving the sound of Shatterglass - "Coming Undone". Just wish the author had released a video of it. Since swapping my xboxs about (1 for downloads + offline play, another at drumkit + online play), I never impulse buy now. Demo sections just don't do it for me.

    Nothing exciting over on the Xbox side of things, but I'm super psyched that we're getting Back in Time so soon on the PS3. Now I can finally make my epic pirate metal setlist with the two Alestorm songs and Pirats Till We Die. An Anarchy Club song without keys at twice the 'usual' price is no deal for me, however, sorry.

    Back In Time is fairly obnoxious to listen to, so I can't recommend it on my end.

    So if you like the opposite of Paramore you'll love this song?

    Then again, we all know from what end of you your opinions originate, so it's all good. ;)

    I can't really say that, because that logic can be twisted into a lot of things.

    Oh for... it freaking has the line "You put your faith in Odin and Thor, we put ours in cannons and whores." Being obnoxious is the song's ENTIRE POINT. And it's AWESOME :D
