Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

Yeah we thought about doing another shadow just to keep our hand in but what with the guest challenge and Mims feeling ill on Thursday thru Sunday we couldn't pull it off this week. Oh well. Might still try again with Carte Blanche just for fun and to get another song out of ye olde Nur Ein. If I ma...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

Goodbye bandita: I like how you never mention a chupacabra, but the lyrics dance around the concept. I suppose there isn’t any reason it has to be a chupacabra, but I don’t mind that here. The lyrics are soft and morose, and aching. The panning with the backing vocals in the chorus going from wide ...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

What an incredible batch of songs. Best round 1 ever? My lyrics were their own liner notes, but here's what really happened: Wow, I finally had time to watch this and it's such a shame that you didn't get the falsetto in because it sounded SO GOOD! Great song though. And I am REALLY impressed by yo...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

Goodbye Bandita is in! 2 hours before the deadline, but we did do a tiny revision and resubmit at 11:45 after listening on an iPod with no speakers. Ours is about "How To Get Away With Murder", and it will be perfect on our EP which we want to call "Juice" because somehow all our songs so far have s...

I'm terrified and amazed to learn about the 41 song...

Do you mean "No other U2 references"? Isn't titling the song "Where the Streets Have No Name" and/or using that in the lyrics a U2 reference...?
No, we meant you can't cover the U2 song of the same name, or refer to it.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Thanks for the great review! Really pleased that Depeche Mode sample worked for you, I thought it was hilarious. Although I guess we weren’t going for hilarious overall so maybe it’s a weird choice. My Omnichord is an OM-27! I’d love to upgrade to one of the later ones with more sounds if I ever ru...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

GENERAL NOTE re: Judging: If you write and perform well a GREAT song that at least pays lip service to the challenge, I personally will rank it highly and not dock you. If your song sucks but you absolutely NAIL the challenge, you will get a point or two more than you would have if you only barely ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Mandibles - I didn’t care for this, it wasn’t catchy and the lyrics were kind of lame. But the biggest pet peeve for me was the totally incorrect use of the phrase “pump the brakes”. The situation the narrator is describing should lead them to pump the GAS, not the brakes! They’re trying to go fast...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

OK, here are my reviews. Agony Sauce - In my opinion, the only song that really NAILED the challenge. This is exactly what I expected from a “diss track”, and Agony Sauce does not disappoint. Not only do they diss all the competitors, including everyone who dropped out/forfeited, but the judges, and...

You're killin' me here. ;) I don't know when the Death Metal came in? Maybe it was a different song? Oh, the Thrashy part... I was going for more of a Powertrip vibe than a "Death Metal" vibe but yes... it was mainly for the unexpected "shock value"... and I don't know if the judges pick the challe...

"Someone or something", the challenge says. So you can write a diss track about broccoli or whatever, unless you don't want to be mean to broccoli. I'll weigh in here and say that if someone writes a diss track about broccoli, I will take it upon myself to write a diss track about them. Broccoli is...

Fun fact, all the "Message in a Bottle" tracks by the Police (or trying to sound like the Police) we could find sounded too much like Message in a Bottle, so we ended up using a youtube video called "John Mayer - Message In A Bottle (Backing Track)", which is I guess what a John Mayer song sounds l...
