Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

I got confirmation from Amber Lang that it was okay to share this: "He was being tested for stomach or pancreatic cancer - he passed quietly in his sleep on Saturday . No one knew he was sick like this ." I was so bummed out by this, even though I never knew him personally. Like several people have...

Balls to Monte: I feel like this would fit right in in the Who’s “Tommy.” I like that vocal effect you have. That instrumental has a cool Buffalo Springfield sound to it. Sort of like “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing.”
Wow. Thanks. Can't ask for a nicer compliment than that.

Re: Don't look now... (Miss Lovely Eyes reviews)

Balls To Monte - not my best, but I just couldn't let another week go by without submitting a song. The music is VERY Arthur Lee. The lyrics I mostly dreamed in my sleep and wrote down as separate thoughts. Brown Word and the Big Whine - This is kinda like David Bowie meets Suzi Quatro, and that's a...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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: 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...
