A Different Monkey: Interesting panning. Cheap snare + lots o' reverb. The reverse horn or string thing is pretty neato. The super-dry vocal feels out of place in the wet mix. I like the simplicity in much of the arrangement. The "it's been" bit in the right channel is too low, or too far right or something. Holy pitch problems at the end, Batman. Pretty cool song.
Andre: My reviews of your songs are generally the same: Rythym problems abounding, your lyric flow is very akward, and your vocals wander from good to annoying. This sounds like Marcus Kellis doing America.
Anonymous Musings: Waiting for 'song' to start... Oh, how silly of me, I thought Songfight was a place for musicians, not neo-beatnik art majors who wear berets and smoke clove cigarettes. And I can hear you fumbling with your mic at the end. /snaps fingers, then gives the finger.
Bell Green y amigos: The intro is fucking heaven. Then it goes downhill a little. The vocal tracks don't mesh perfectly, and I don't know about that filter. Basically, my only input on this song is - more vocal takes or a stronger singer. Good song.
Bjam: One of the better female singers I've heard here. I like that I can hear your Scottish accent here and there. Very nice guitar playing. Great stuff. Can't wait to hear more stuff from you, and you'll only get better.
Creep: Ultra-pop track + Pink Floyd vocals = loss of interest. 1. Change that fucking track. 2. Back off the reverb a bit, it sounds like you have a good voice, so let us hear it
Josh WooDeshead - Yeah, Josh's drums usually sound better than this. The drums sound really muddy. Bring up 10k and above on the whole drum track. Incredible vocal performance. I think, rather than Deshead being JW, Deshead is actually Counting fucking Crows. I'd say all you need is a better name, and you're set.
FWC: I was actually digging this 'til the vocals came in. Nothing beat a good-sounding synth arpeggiating a neat chord. The drum track would be more effective if it was more aggressive. Currently, it's not making my speakers do anything. Techno-y bass kicks should make my sub punch my ballsack. The crescendo-y lead thing is pretty neato. Watch the levels on the vocals, it sounds like you overload just a little around 2:45. Overall, this is better than most midi/FL/loop based Songfight submissions. Work on the production a little, though, particularly the vocals. Great arrangement.
Glenn Case y los Half Racks: Who mixed this? It feels really wimpy. It's like the lead vocals have no hi's, and the rest of the mix is only hi's. Extra points for tambourine. Weird solo guitar sound. Vintage, I suppose. I suppose this is a pretty good GC attack on The Who
Heuristics N'sInc: Always with the seizures. It's like... goth-pop... There. You've been branded for life. You are now the eternal king of goth-pop. Ha. ha. ha. You and Starfinger should make tracks for each other one week and see if anyone notices.
Jake Holmes: You're not fooling me. The voice behind all that crap is really the guy from the B52's. Admit it. I GOT ME A CHRYSLER AND ITS AS BIG AS A WHALE AND ITS ABOUT TO SET SAIL!!!!!! Wow, "I'll kiss you for as long as you can hold your breath." Simple as hell, but that's an incredible line. Best voice/guitar sound I've ever heard on Songfight. Very fucking hip track.
Kapitano and TVK: Sounds like Frontalittle. The chorus vocals sound like Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Whoever that is singing, you need to do South Park-esque songs from now on, and I will vote for them every week. The beat sounds like it was lifted from Ace of Base.
Ken's SDBS: Wonky. Your voice... it's almost... Awesome. Ah, the delay, bring that up, that adds more awesomeness. I'm surprised this didn't go anywhere, Ken. I would have expected drums to pick up and the synths to drop out at some point. I'll definitely check out that acoustic remix.
Likely Lads: I don't know if you were going for hilarious, but you nailed it. Oh Jesus, this is the funniest thing I've ever heard on Songfight I think... Well, aside from Starfinger and Pompeii. Which brings me to say that you should listen to Pompeii's Stand in the Circle for a good idea of how the mix should sound. Also, like Pompeii, you should laugh at some point in the song so we don't think you're serious. If you are serious, I will make fun of you.
McCulloch/Carlier: Cashpoint-esque, to be sure. Just the right amount of reverb on the vocals, good job. Get those background vocals lined up with the lead better, and pull them back slightly, only by like 2db. This is a very very very nice song. Reminds me of the White Hat. Look in the Archive for his Cosmic Confirmation.
Motor Monkeys: I don't know about the acoustic sound. Sounds really thin. This is really solid. Not much I can say about this. Hooray for big toms.
Poor June: You fucking hippy. Not really much I can add to what's probably already been said. Muddy-ass sound, the piano soudns like ass, the recorder thing sounds like it has no relation to the rest of the song at all. Plodding rythym works if it's steady. This is cool, I suppose.
The Sober Irishman: For the most part, I don't like my voice. I'm not alone in this sentiment, I know. I'm so used to hearing mistakes in my voice when I do certain things that, when I listen to this, I'm genuinely surprised that they aren't happening. There's still a couple places when I'm a bit under the pitch, but oh well. At least I didn't do that annoying warble thing I often do when I get up in the D-E area. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my vocal performance this week. It could certainly improve, of course.
Southwest Statistic: The kick sounds like ass. Cardboard ass. I don't really like the snare sound either. NSKit is great, man, but you gotta work with it. IT's meant to be tweaked, eq'd, and generally fucked with, rather than be used right out of the box. Otherwise, the drumtrack will sound lifeless, like it does here. Congrats on the 'most radio-ready' sound here, I guess, along with Deshead.
Wreckdom: You're a good three weeks late for Halloween, dude. Oh, man. You're a dork. I can't stop smiling. WHERE'S MY MARTINI?
Rockin Oxen: I don't think this should have been removed at all. Granted, it was bad, but I don't think it was offensive at all. I've had similar songs written about me, by a couple people. I guess this makes me, Blue, and Erik the only Songfighters with battlesongs against them.
Pretty good fight. Lots of songs with people trying to be scary, but sounding silly. Deshead and SWStat are obvious strong numbers. Bjam shows a huge amount of promise for future fights. Likely Lads made me laugh more than Wreckdom, even though Wreckdom was trying to be funny and LL weren't, I think.
Not sure who to vote for yet.
