Patrick Wolf... I liked the track, but as a person, he's still a cunt :heh: from what I've seen of him anyway.

 

Hands Down just didn't do anything for me... I get the sentiment behind it all but I just don't care for it.

Hands Down was bloody awful. Why anyone would want "that" voice singing in your band is beyond me. It's that dime-a-dozen "emotional" whiney american man's voice. Just makes me switch off. The song itself was passable, but that voice/singer brought it way down. Sure it'll appeal to people here though.

 

Patrick Wolf, my nomination. A brilliant artist, and a great, catchy, energetic song. I chose this song as it's one of the most immediate and enjoyable (that isn't Magic Position, which is pretty rubbish imo), but not as well known.

^ You and I have a very different definition of energetic then because 'Tristan' is anything but energetic.

 

Neither song was particularly great. Never listened to Patrick Wolf before and honestly, based on that, I wouldn't bother to check anything else out. I can see what he's attempted to do with the song but it did absolutely nothing. Likewise, that Dashboard Confessional song did nothing either. Got the sentiment but the actual song wasn't great. I know there are much better DC songs than that and if it had been anything like 'Vindicated' or 'Stolen' then it would have been a no brainer.

 

I'll begrudgingly vote Patrick Wolf but he doesn't deserve it based on that song and neither does 'Hands Down'. I really don't think either should 'grace' the next round.

Hands Down has no soul. / It does, but it's smothered by the generic crapness of the vocals. The lyrics are fine, and I like the "simple" sound (ie. acoustic guitar and drums).

 

Tristan is so stunning. I like how it's energetically dark. As though a gang of Weaviles have descended.

 

"You speak of love, but I've never heard of her" (A stunning line).

 

So yeah, Patrick Woolf.

Patrick Wolf for me too I think. The DC song is okay, but it's not very great either, and the vocals do get a bit annoying over time. So yeah, Patrick Wolf gets my vote.

Jesus fuck, that Dashboard song is horrific on the ears. The intro music sounded alright, and I think "hmm, never heard this before, sounds ok so far." Then, the words, I just didn't like them. It's definitely not for me.

 

I can't say I'm a fan of Tristan at all either. The Magic Position is a personal favourite of mine by him, as it remembers me of a nice time I had in a club with a good friend. Tristan was ok, but I think I agree with Ganepark, I just didn't feel the energy.

 

Still, out of the two, I prefer The Wolf. By quite some margin, I think.

Didn't like either song but I'll vote for the poor mans Depeche Mode rather the utter dross whiny American drige.

 

That's a vote for Patrick Wolf

Dashboard because it reminds me of my college/Woolworths days (although coincidentally Tristan was the name of one of my college lecturers) but Patrick Wolf's song was so completely forgettable for me. Perhaps unfair in a way anyway because at a push I could have probably recited Hands Down before but good memories and all that (even if yes, his voice is a bit meh in that song).

Hmmm, tough call. I think I'm going to buck the trend and pitch in for Dashboard Confessional, as although the lyrics were fairly poor they at least made me smile with their sweet romantic naivity.

I've thought about and i'm actually going to vote Hands Down.

I quite liked both intros, but as Tristan went on it just lost me. I'm not saying the Dashboard song was way better (as neither really appealed to me), but i have a tolerance for the dashboard guy's voice (after hearing my brother play his songs when i was younger) and at least there was some energy to it.

To be fair, it would be a lie to say Tristan isn't an energetic song. When you listen to the opening ukulele bit / drumbeat / chorus. One of the few songs people were dancing to properly when I saw him live.

I found the Hands Down kind of boring in the sense that I've never heard that particular song before, but feel I have. I.e it didn't sound very inspired.

 

Tristan wasn't great either, but he sort of had his own style I felt. As much as he repels me, I'm voting for Patrick.

I can't stand Wolf(e?) because of his onstage antics. It makes me hate his music as a result. Therefore, I give this vote to Hands Down. Also, the song makes me lol quite hard.

Wolf(e?)

 

Wolf. As in "Grrrrr! Bark!". Eating girls in red capes.

 

Plus; I hate the "I hate an artist's music because they're cunts/they don't smile/etc." But each to their own. I can't fathom doing that. I still llike Kanye West's music, and he's the biggest cunt ever.

 

Patrick Wolf - 14

Dashboard - 4

Oh, no, normally I couldn't care less about it. La Roux? Very addictive music, quite a fan, but she's dissed many other bands for no reason and there's the whole no smiling thing with her. And yeah, Kanye's a cunt but makes addictive music. But something about this bell-end strikes me. It actually affects his music, if I went to a gig and he had a temper tantrum because of the sound not being right I'd be pissed off and want my money back. He's clearly not got any respect for the fans, and thus his music in my eyes.

 

And that's why I can't listen to his music without hating it.
