ok, I had some stupid rule where I wasn't gonna review fights I'm in,
but what the hell, I'm drunk, and I really love this fight, so fuckit!:
Sunshine Jackson whatever: this is wonderful. "singing ooh-ah-ooh-ah"-oh! I fuckin' love this. STANDING IN THE RAIN!!!! (sob sob) It's so gloriously sissy. Supply-demanding, that's a cheap one, I love it. Beautiful. I wish I was your bridey-didey-oh. Not really. I love my girlfriend. But I love this too.
Pathetic Octothorpe: you coulda done more with it, but this is really fun. You must have had even more fun recording it. Braaaaaiiiiinnnnn.... mhm. It's not that good really, but fun for what it is.
Flxvvm Florvm: damn, I've liked everything I've heard from Flxxvm Florvm. The vocals are a little sloppy, but what the fuck do I care about that?! It adds character. I danced to this song. Fun fun fun.
Rone Rivendale: you're right man, you will get better. You've got bigger balls than Mr. Quoons. Technically, this is pretty bad, and you know it, but it's hella cute. By the way, there is nothing wrong with computerized guitar, but I'm glad you're glad about th'real thing.
Pigpen: Ahhhh, this is groovy. The voice needs some work, I wish I was singing this. Wait, I am. But not on the recording - I should be. This needs me on the vocals. Big ol' me. Yeah. The music is great and unpretentious.
Brainpipe: oh yeah, so awesomely dirty, I'm glad you're singing it low. I could try to criticize the music, but honestly, I think it's perfect. Ends just in time. Super cool.
Nigel Clements: this Jesus Christ thing is off-putting, but you have a weird take on it that makes it all cool. I love your fucking voice (tho I love the Cynthia stuff more). I think it kinda drags a little in parts... but it always picks back up. Which totally works with the song.
No Horse Town (me!): I dunno. I really like it, but usually y'all don't. Let's see what happens. I had to rush the lyrics/singing at the end becuz of partyin'-at-my-house issues. After a few listens, I don't care, I think it works OK. I put a lot of work into the music, if not the singing... oh well. I think it's pretty awesome. I know the production's not ideal, but I'm rather proud of my composition on this one, and I might vote for me.
City Of Dis: I enjoy this, but you are destroying my eardrums, man. I think you shoulda made those vocals quieter. I can barely hear the weird-ass music. This needs a better mix more than any song of mine ever did. I dunno, I still like it (but, great job!..), but you only have yourself to blame for other people not "getting it". Sorry.
Abominominous: super fun. It would be really hard to pick this apart, so I won't try (I am lazy). But yeah, it was a fun thrashy time. Since I can't vote for Shaq anymore, I might vote for this.
Four Zombies and a Clown: that static is horrible, like, horrible, like, it hurts. (I started listening through headphones like th'rest of you fuckers!) I like the guitar riff, and I like the length, but I think you shoulda done more with it.
Sven Mullet: The endlessly repeating 1st verse thing is perfect, everything I love. AHHHHHHHH, and the instrumental stuff after it just makes it better. I guess technically you coulda recorded the vocals a little better.. (cleaner? maybe, I dunno..) but in the end that doesn't really matter. Possible/probable vote-a-roo.
Styop Quoons: damn, I wish I wouldn't die from sucking on your balls, because they sound mighty tasty. I really like the whimsical piano solo. The very nice bridge. You ARE funky, Mr. Quoons. I think you submitted one song before this...? I seem to remember I didn't like it. I'll have to go back and figure out why. Cuz this is awesome.
Stopwatcher: a little modern-emo for my tastes, but you do it really well. I like this better than Nine Inch Nails (well, I don't really like Nine Inch Nails, but, yeah, there's some similarity..) I wish it didn't repeat so many times. But it's pretty good.
The Weakest Suit: I thought you said you were doing the acoustic thing again?... oh, I get it, you were joking. Weirdly, the vocals remind me of Ben Weasel. That's prolly not a very apt comparison, but hey, I'm honest. I like all the parts. I love on the "take me to court" part, how you do the exact opposite of the expected guitar solo. Fuck guitar solos, if you don't need one! This is outstanding. You should do more songs like this. I liked most of your "G&G" stuff, but I like this more.
Enter It In The Art Show: OK, that first part would really bug me if it wasn't so raw. The low-finess of this is breaking my heart. Maybe I'm just drunk (true) but I love this. That fast lyrical part with "what it is that compels me, I know it's unhealthy" is superb. Your falsetto stuff is so good and cute. I don't like the "man, I'm such a jerk" thing, tho. Kinda breaks the groove. That may have been what you were going for, but I don't think it works. Otherwise, this was really pretty and somehow transcended a genre I usually hate.
Ill Cricket Crew: I don't really like the beastie boys. But parts of this are funny. Kinda sounds like "killing in the name of" when the title part comes in. The kid is cute. Songfighters, stop using kids to make songs cute! Yes, the b-b-b thing is the best part. I think overall it's OK.
Melvin: I love that shrill noise thing during the verse. This is my favorite Melvin so far. The chorus reminds me of "today" by the pumpkins. That's a very good thing. I'm not sure about the acoustic ending. I think maybe you shoulda taken it in the opposite direction. Still, this is really good.
I'm gonna vote for Sven Mullet or maybe Aboninominous or maybe maybe myself. Not sure yet. Excellent fight. You're all outstandishing.
There's a place where a total stranger will give you their blood...
