ST16R3 Reviews - Joe 'Covenant' Lamb Hello all. This round was difficult in a way. Beyond my top three I found it VERY hard to separate the rest of the pack. Tiny things made differences.

Re: SpinTunes 16 Round 2 'Count Me In' reviews

If only the judges had felt the same way! Your song was in my top 3 (with Faster Jackelope and Jerkatorium). I was surprised to see it placed so low. My top three also! Hopefully some consolation that your song was a fan favourite, really not sure how that one didn't get you through to round 3! I w...

Yes. Good job. Your example is much more palatable. Crap challenge.
Challenge accepted. You missed the most important part of the challenge.

‘Or similar events.’

I need to ponder for a while on this.
