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 Four "No Memory"

Speaking of Spiraling , this song has some good chippy-synths. I think I was turned on to this band last year by... was it Arby? mQ0B2PpnegY You are correct, sir! At least, I'm pretty sure it was me, as I am a huge fan of that band and no one else has ever heard of them! And yes, that song definite...

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...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

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...

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

"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...

ok sorry for the delay, here are my reviews: 23. Rain Watt - I loved this. This time I’m getting Fountains of Wayne from Rain Watt. Again this is a huge compliment. Not only is the music super strong but the lyrics are brilliant. Biting, so smart, and so vulnerable in the breakdown. They really reso...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

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...

Do you like to play music on your computer that lives on your hard drive? Are you passionate about metadata? Does an unordered mess of mp3s in your media player stress you out?

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

We do have a flaw in trying to get too cute with the challenges. In ‘Trial by Fire’ we added a mythological siren as well as a physical one. 3:20 added ambiance of an Olive Garden. Colorblind ended up being an XTC / Dukes of the Stratosphere homage to a cuckholded Elizabethan. Not the most accessib...
