Apart from In The Blood, every wildcard has won so far. The winner of GM2 was Outcast (3.59) beating out the likes of Nex Machina (4.56) and Sword & Sworcery (4.18) so I wasn’t expecting Tales from Off-Peak City to go through on the strength of its score alone.
The phenomenon is interesting though. I suspect it’s folk warming to tracks more on repeat listens. Some music can put up a fight and take a bit more effort to appreciate. This is why I try to give each track several spins just in case there’s some magic there that’s not apparent on a first or second listen. Some tracks never click though! The wildcard system allows that to happen more.
This is what I choose to believe @Hansey ;-)
Also, shoutout to @Jack_Howitzer. I see you still, voting like a champ!
