I think "Sr. X" from "Elmoncho the man from" is excellent. Great sound.

Good to see this year's competition up and running! After a quick browse it sounds like the entries are of a high standard overall. And I understand there are plenty more to come!

I like Adam Leonard's 'Implausible Man', stands out for being in an early Ultravox! style. cool

Best of luck to all!

Thanks very much Fredrik! I tried to make it as Vox!/Foxx as possible. Possibly a bad move when the competition closed on Midge Ure's birthday!

I've not listened to any others yet. Must start a download-athon tonight.

All the best,

I have listened Competiton's Song. Everybody gave full heart into their songs. Nice to hear those good work!

Best Cover: Wow "Sleepwalk" by Electro 80. is perfect!!! my favourite! - I haven't expected Ultravox'sound. But here is perfect, and other important think. You sing with your own voice. You don't need to be Midge the 2nd. (Midge II is Mike from Monument wink He has to be smile )).
Moon Over Moscow - Visage cover by Christopher Watson and Lament by Dareen Cowie are also very close to the orignals.


Best Recover - This is I have been waiitng for smile
SR X is Perfect!!!, Vienna by Eugene is Great!!! But I like other ReCovers Hiroshima Mon Amour - Ultravox! re-cover by Electric Angels is very interested,I like this version, Just For a Moment - Ultravox! re-cover by Adam Leonard i very like your arrangment eith guitar, Maximum Acceleration - Ultravox! re-cover by Fredrik Helander fir me sounds like later Ultravox with fine "guest" vocals, cool interpretation,

Best Origial
The level goes up. I also very like this section:
Limelight by Frederik reminds me B-sides from Vienna and Quartet (Alles klar / Monument) with more Quartet sound. The Archer is more Billy's sound.
Frederik - your 80's girl would has been a hit in 80's. Adam Leonard in The Implausible Man playing like Robin Shears or Steve Simon. I don't know. Real old good Ultravox!.Through the Door by Fredrik - have you invited Midge for this song???

I; m waitn for the next part and try to write short post.

Bye
Sly laugh

Thanks for the nice comments, Sly, about the Electric Angels' version of Hiroshima. I haven't had a chance to download everyone's pieces yet but I am looking forward to setting aside some time to do so. As a Foxx-Vox fan, Adam Leonard's 'Implausible Man' sounds especially intriguing.

I might do a zip file, but it's over 1GB and if everyone tries to DL at once it might put quite a strain on our bandwidth. I'll see if I have time.

That's it - they're all up, 81 entries plus one video (oo, that's new!). A huge thank you to everyone that put a lot of hard work into this, you're a massively talented bunch. Judging will be performed over the next two weeks or so. Enjoy! laugh

Funnily enough, they're all busy. smile

Warren judged the first year, but we've been doing it ever since. We did try asking other band members (and Warren again), but it's a big ask - 80-odd tracks take a long time to listen to several times over and then write up comments, agonise over which ones you feel are deserving winners, etc.

The quality of entries this year is really outstanding. Maybe Warren could be pursuaded to judge a winner of winners??

Is there any other way to listen to these entries apart from download? I've only listened to one so far & that is the excellent "The Cheater" by SpottyDogg, which I listened to via their website. It's no surprise to me that I enjoyed this track as I have loved previous tracks I have heard by them. smile cool

The standard is high isnt it? I've decided to do a little article and put some coverage on some of this work as I feel some of it is quite inspiring - and it would tie in nicely with a project I'm working on at the moment about electronic music. I may have a few questions I hope thats okay. smile

You might find joining the Electro80s forum would help you with this Jus. There is even a well known drummer from an 80s electro group who recently joined the forum - & it's not Warren!!

Hi Snashy,

When you click on each individual track from each of the sections, they should play in your browser. smile

Cerise,

Thanks for zipping the files, the download was so easy and lo! they even have "album names" making sorting through the 13,000 songs on my iPod a snap!

I HIGHLY recommend to people that they download all in one go if they can!

I am working through all the origianls right now, great stuff!

You're very welcome! We like to pay attention to detail, y'know. wink

Phil - I corrected the artist titles etc on the first couple of zips, shortly after I uploaded them the first time. I think you just got to them a bit too quickly! If you grab them again, you should find that all the detail is there. smile
