The Rate of Nightmare // The Dreamcatcher Rate (WE HAVE A WINNER!)

    First of all, many thanks to @vague who will make all the elimination gifs and to @savilizabeths who is gonna help me in case I have any problems so that the rate runs until the end. I couldn't make it without you both!

    Anyway, let's talk about one of the most successful rebranding cases in music story (this decided by yours truly). There was once a 5-member girl group called MINX, formed in 2014 under Happy Face Entertainment, who released a few songs before going on a hiatus. When everyone was expecting a disband, it was decided that the group would debut again with two new members under a new name: Dreamcatcher.

    Dreamcatcher did a 180 on MINX's "cute" concept and their songs are inspired mainly by j-rock in general. This is one of the reasons (other than the obvious talentry) that makes the girls and their work so unique and interesting to follow.

    After releasing several minis and their first debut album, it's about time we rated their songs. Shall we?

    SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
    YOUTUBE PLAYLIST
    APPLE MUSIC PLAYLIST (thanks vague!)

    Note: Some songs are geoblocked, so let me know if any of the youtube links is not working for you that I'll look for an alternate link.

    The rules are quite simple:
    1. Score all the songs between 0-10. Decimals are allowed but keep it simple (eg. 8,5 is alright, while 8,528439 isn't).
    2. One and only one song may get your 11. Choose wisely!
    3. Commentary is not mandatory but appreciated.
    4. Send your ballot to me in a conversation by JULY 22nd, 23:59 GMT. If you need an extension, let me know.
    5. Also do not be a troll, these girls have guns and swords. xx

    Hope you enjoy it!

  2. And that's not all!

    For this optional extra round, you can also rate all of MINX's songs.

    Why Did You Come To My Home?
    Action
    Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree
    Superstar Superman
    Love Shake
    I Like You
    Shut Up
    Love Shake (DJ Stereo Club Mix)

    YOUTUBE PLAYLIST

    Almost all of the rules from the main rate apply here, minus one. Since there is very few songs, there won't be any 11s. Just rate them from 0 to 10.

    I plan on revealing the side results first, so the deadline will be the same of the main rate.

  10. I'm super excited for this but at the same time, I'm kinda worried my favorites will get low scores. I've been re-listening to their entire discography the past few days so this is perfect timing.

    [​IMG]

    ETA: Watch me give all of their songs nothing lower than a 7 (except maaaaybe for one song which is a fan favorite).

  12. Their first 4 mini albums have disappeared from Spotify...
     
  13. We got an anti in our midst. Show yourself.
     
  14. This girl has access to the spreadsheet so I know who to hunt down if you tank my faves.

    In other news, there is a high chance the girlfriend will participate in this.
     
  15. Thank the Kpop gods for YouTube.

    Also, someone stop me from giving all the songs from Dystopia (save one) nothing but 10s.
     
  16. I WILL be doing this!!!
     
  17. I actually went through their whole discography in December so I'm definitely here for this.
     
  18. I will attempt to do this once my mood is better. Mayday for the win.
     
  19. Here to stan Dami's mascer than me vocals and Yoohyeon's unbelievably flawless nose.
