Re: Silence blaring for (A 9/11 Every Day reviews)

Balls To Monte - The intro has a real Me & Bobby McGee feel to it which I like. If it was me I'd mix your vocal higher, I had to dig out the lyrics to understand what you were saying. I'm loving the chorus. Nice ending too building things up with trumpets and organ. I just listened to it a 2nd time...

Re: Silence blaring for (A 9/11 Every Day reviews)

add - Evoking early Dylan at his [its?] best, this is a wonderful performance, full of wit and charm. A perfect talking blues to boot. Fantastic job! AMERIKKKA THE GREAT - Catchy, but not really my thing. Love the message. Nice production too. Balls To Monte - A simple ditty, I was going for as catc...

Re: A 9/11 Every Day

A 9/11 Every Day by Balls To Monte Strange sensation in my heart, it isn’t love Still, I’m leery of The rampant numbness throughout my soul The inner mask I wear feels more formal I act more normal, Each and every time I hear my doctor say [chorus] A 9/11 every day Just ain’t no good for me And all ...

Wow thank you - that's lovely to hear, and a generous compliment. And perhaps unsurprisingly, I struggle to accept any of it other than the phrase 'tedious by the end'.
Yeah, I'm the same way.

Re: It's not my fault (I Can’t Turn It Off reviews)

add - Right off the bat, this sounds great. Love the rhythm, the mix, the instrumental and the vocals and melody. Plus the lyric is great too. Wonderful performance all around. Wow, this is a great start. Balls To Monte - I’m not crazy about the mix here, but the hook is kinda good. I think I’m reco...

Re: I Can't Turn It Off

I Can't Turn It Off by Balls To Monte The powerful force that fuels us, I can’t turn it off—no, no, no The adhesive tape that glues us, I won’t peel if off—no, no, no   Way past midnight, you sashayed in Like Mrs Parker at the Algonquin On more laps than a cloth napkin The spotlight was yours to bas...

Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

Are people really stopping you from kissing your wife? That seems odd. Yeah, well, the advice is to basically not be in the same room as anyone else for the duration. That means 'No huggy, no kissy..." not even with a wedding ring. :x Now that I've re-read your lyrics, I realize that you actually H...

Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

PS. What’s an “O-T-H Joe”? I honestly don’t know. I put a bunch of links in the lyric thread, because I do use a fair bit of jargon in this tune. OTH = 'Other than honorable.' Servicemembers typically leave the military with an 'honorable' discharge. This is great! I am exceedingly lucky to be in t...

Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

add - Really like this very tight arrangement. A particularly great song from you, and great guitar work to boot. Great start! Balls To Monte - Another bummer one from us, though I still kinda like it. Brown Word and the Big Whine - Really great sounding track, and great lyrics. Extra points for “3-...

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

Balls To Monte - again really nailing your genre and oh the surprise vocal harmony in the middle, great moment. guitar solo felt a little meandering. when I read the lyrics to this I found them very relatable, nice job there. Yeah, the guitar solo started out fantastic and then kinda...went away. I...

@gene: it's a bass guitar with delay and chorus. I figure the fact you couldn't tell means I passed the optional challenge :)
REALLY? That sounds great!

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

add - Right away, I like the dissonance and ramshackle nature of this. That main guitar lead bit during the verses is great. The arrangement really seems well-though out. This is my favorite one of yours for (in?) a while. Great job. Abandoned Bandana - Not typically my thing, but I really like the ...

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

Balls To Monte - Kinda like...Donovan meets Mr. Bungle chord changes. Maybe Sea Change Beck vibes a little. Oh man, I could hear a Kinks "Two Sisters"-style harpsichord line plinking starting somewhere halfway through. I really like these chord changes. I also actually like the pared down productio...

Re: How It Comes Apart

How It Comes Apart by Balls To Monte I remembered when it happened, But I don’t remember anything now. I vaguely recall how I snapped, and Shattered our world somehow. I remember I tried to glue together Fractured pieces in a picture frame, Still, it’s cheap imitation leather I got no one else but m...
