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: Screaming Into The Void

Screaming Into The Void by Balls To Monte A shimmering snowflake drifts over the horizon and shifts, Descends on the fauna and flora Earth shudders beneath my feet Black holes devour the whole damn street Explodes in a blinding blue aura   Screaming into the void I hear my voice echo Can you hear th...

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...

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

Heh, my second ever songfight entry featured a Peanuts sample very prominently throughout the whole track. (Rhymes with Lucia). And my wife has Woodstock tattooed on her shoulder. It's rad. The worst birthday present I ever got was waking up to the news that Charles Schulz died. Such a great figure...

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

Ha, I'm pleasantly surprised that I was right on that one. I have like 3 copies of the Great Pumpkin as well as a DVD of the animated version. I also named my first son Linus - not directly after Van Pelt, but the fact that my wife is a big Schultz fan and I openly admire Linus Torvalds led to a st...

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

Balls To Monte - I do and will always think your voice sounds a lot like Robert Plant. I’m not sure if that’s a conscious affectation or just the way you sing but it’s definitely a good thing, especially when you sing songs like this. I greatly enjoy the lyrics here. I’m not entirely sure what this...

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

Balls To Monte : Reminds me of... like Emerson Lake and Palmer or maybe... something else? I think it's mostly the melody, phrasing and vocal performance. Which I liked, btw. Maybe the only real critique would be that it's pretty static throughout. If this were a prelude to a more full arrangement ...

The Pannacotta Army
It's my go-to organ - a VSTi plugin called VB3 and a preset called "Funky Comping"
I have the Mk1 version of VB3 - looks like there's a Mk2 version available now.
Thanks.

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

add I like the calypso-techno feel of this. The chorus kicks in beautifully. Really great tune here. I’m also a sucker for guitar solos that strongly feature the melody. Excellent. Amby Moho I don’t know who you are, stranger, but this is wonderful stuff. Fantastic melody all around, and I love how...

Re: Eyes in the Dark

Eyes In The Dark by Balls To Monte Blue moon on Halloween night Hanging in the autumn sky, Pumpkin patch vigil tonight Waiting for a god to reply.
