Re: The cards were all dealt (Face Down reviews)

Quick comments. Some strong stuff this fight, nice. Surprises, too. a.flaim - This has good intentions and would be more fun with everything working properly, vocals especially. Excellent intro had me thinking sci-fi for a bit, then it got all popped out. I like where your voice will be someday, mis...

Re: Counting stars one at a time (The First Million Is The Hardest reviews)

Quick comments before work. (Ugh) Decent enough fight with nothing really stellar. Gil comes closest, to me. a.flaim - Great energy, modern "punk" I guess you call it. The vocal timbre is likable, but the pitch is way off. Lyrics are empowering/motivating. But yeah, and coming from me, work on that ...

Re: Matter is pulled by gravity until there is... (Material Change reviews)

I’d have preferred the guitar a little cleaner/sharper so it’s not fighting so much with the clavichord. When I was recording tracks and mixing, I said "Oh. listen how they kind of blend together. Neat!" I totally hear what you're saying, though, and agree that that would clear things up in a good ...

Re: Matter is pulled by gravity until there is... (Material Change reviews)

Quick comments. There was nothing here that I disliked although many could use some polishing. Coughy Cake! Andy Balham - Scratchpad and first time through feel with moments of what it could be-ness. The lyrics and progressions are good, if not necessarily meant to be together. Needs a lot of screws...

True that, LT. But wait until the day I cover one of your tunes in an 80s new wave style. Uh-huh. See what people think then.

Disco del Stinko left in the oven. Boo!

EDIT: I took it out of the oven and mailed it in, warm, fresh (sorta) and stinky. Understood if it doesn't get posted. :)

Congrats, PCA! You're on a roll, man.

And if anything, I probably picked up miscast Lichen votes. Sorry, LT! :D

Re: What are you trying to say? (Cast A Shadow reviews)

Very quick impressions. Clear winner I think this week or should be. Fight was neither suck-fest, nor greatest ever. Brown Word and the Big Whine - There are whiffs of both Sabbath and porn tunage here, I can dig it. Sludgy but still rollin'. Melody could break away from following the chords so much...

Re: We met, became friends and then (Like Turned To Love reviews)

Congrats to the PCA, well deserved win, great tune. I'm surprised by how many votes I received, I would figure about half that might be more appropriate, or that kind of total for Gil Sans. And I've still never voted for my own song here. Honestly! So. Was there some unsolicited monkey business here...

Super quick comments. I don't believe there's anything in this fight that sucked, strong batch. Pat yerselves on the backs, gang! Now, who wants ice-cream?

Re: Look at the great comments (Not That You Even Tried reviews)

Here are some brief comments not very thought out. Decent fight with a few tunes stronger than the rest. Nothing very p-yew here, really. Berkeley Social Scene - Meat and potatoes, still tasty. Lush backing vocals on the easy chorus would elevate much, though the hooks are pleasant enough. It takes ...
