Re: I Was A Child Model

I Was A Child Model - Sly Eli Deckard, I'm a replicant I was a child model, relent Let me live on I've only know off-world I've seen things you wouldn't believe Lost in time, like tears in rain More human than human But it hurts to burn so brightly It's not easy to meet your maker Deckard, you see t...

Re: Google it (I Was A Child Model prefight)

I'm doubt I'm going to get anywhere near shoegaze, mine's currently sounding like the theme from Blade Runner (original).

Re: You can only avoid (Potential Consequences reviews)

Sly Eli: The drums feel like they're in the far side of a massive empty warehouse, and the singing at the front - big variations in level of reverb? Nice guitar twiddling, I feel like I can hear John Frusciante, but hard to do and keep tight. Like the way it ends. For the mix I was aiming for the s...

Re: From Grey to Gandalf (The White Morph reviews)

Brother Baker : I love the riff in this. You handle the switch from heavy to clean vocals really well. I like that you don't over use the heavy growl, it's just enough to make the song interesting without being oppressive. I usually find metal hard to get into but you've made it accessible whilst s...

Here, Atticus honoring Imogen Heap - Hide and Seek (Finished and sleeping on it all) I'm looking forward to hearing this. I've wanted to try a Hide and Seek style song since I heard it but I've never been able to write anything suitable. I should be in this week with a basic rock riff, if I can get...

Re: From Grey to Gandalf (The White Morph reviews)

Sly Eli - Wow, I think this is just lovely. The chord progression is very sophisticated and really works with the mood you're evoking, and there is something wonderfully '90s about the falsetto overlays on the chorus & outro. And the lyrics do a good job toeing the line between ambiguity and obviou...

Re: You face (Potential Consequences prefight)

Recent talk about Morphine and then hearing "Gone Daddy Gone" by The Violent Femmes made me think about bands/songs with unusual and iconic instrumentation. I thought I'd not heard The Violent Femmes before but I've just found out they were the ones that did Blisters In the Sun, which is a great so...

Re: Come on, Pa! Tell me about those (Better Days Reviews)

I was in a Cranberries tribute band one Halloween and I don't get a Linger vibe from this aside from that one little part in the chorus, the general groove and vibe are quite different IMO, but I don't know if this is one of those things where I was too close to it to be able to judge? I probably s...

Re: Come on, Pa! Tell me about those (Better Days Reviews)

I’m mostly happy with the spoken-word parts, but I don’t know how much enduring appeal that concept has. I’ve noticed that when I’ve tried that approach in the past, I haven’t wanted to listen to the songs all that much. I think it can appeal to people if you're saying something with passion that r...

Re: Come on, Pa! Tell me about those (Better Days Reviews)

Sly Eli: Between the verses could use a little more something to build tension. The chorus has some nice moments. The verse melody on the repeated “gangster” is reminding me of something on the tip of my tongue but it’s just not coming to me. My main issue is that I don’t really know what the bette...

Re: Come on, Pa! Tell me about those (Better Days Reviews)

I've had to be a bit brief with some of these reviews just to get through them all. Hopefully I haven't missed any out. If anyone wants me to expand on anything, I'm happy too. Wimpy Piano Boy - this is good. It's one of my favourites this week. The melody sounds very familiar but maybe that's just ...

Re: Rare and unusual (The White Morph prefight)

I'm in with a song loosely about this Morph, from a kids program. The white one is amoral. I couldn't be further from Heavy Metal if I tried.

Re: Come on, Pa! Tell me about those (Better Days Reviews)

Thanks for the reviews everyone. sly eli: Your voice rocks and I love the way the production evolves through the track. I wish the lyrics reflected the musical growth of the song, but they end in much the same place they started, which limits the sense of evolution. I think you've picked up my bias ...

Re: My pinata was full of jello (I'm Covered In It Now reviews)

Sly Eli – Love these type of intros where you can’t quite be sure if you’ve got the right beat pegged as the downbeat until the drums come into their true pattern. I’m not sure you needed the extra measure before the guitar entered at the beginning. I think pretty much everything worked well most o...

Re: My pinata was full of jello (I'm Covered In It Now reviews)

There are so many great songs this week that it makes it difficult to decide who to vote for. Anyway here are my reviews: Agony sauce - Really nice verse, the melody fits well with the start-stop arpeggios. I like this song a lot. The way you play around with the timing is interesting. It mostly wor...

Re: My pinata was full of jello (I'm Covered In It Now reviews)

Sly Eli: I feel like this takes a little long to kick in. Might just be the laptop speakers, but it sounds discombobulated, like everything is in a different space. The chorus doesn’t have a big enough lift for me either. Discombobulated is exactly the effect I was going for so I'm happy you got th...

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

Sly Eli - I love the pads and when you take it into the chorus, man, this is awesome. I loved this track. Thanks. The whole song came about because I was messing around with pads for the first and it went in a different direction to what I'm used to. I've always been strictly guitar, bass and drums...
