Re: Can you see through the spam for the (X-Ray Specs Reviews)

Lots of great choruses this week. 2 guitars and a bass live—The Superman stuff was funny. The emphasis seems to be more on the spoken-word elements than on the music, so it’s hard to comment effectively on the music. Jonathan Mann—The songwriting here is excellent. The chords on the “Take out the ga...

X-Ray Specs

X-Ray Specs by Lichen Throat They’re piling up pallets and tires For the bonfires, Marching through town in dark suits And orange sashes, Giving no thought to who must Clean up the ashes. Don’t have X-ray specs to see which bloody side you’re on Or to see the rot inside your heart. Call your local ...

Re: You won't appreciate a kind review (Until It Happens To You reviews)

Lots of great songs this week. Berkeley Social Scene—Good lyrics, if a bit on the overt side. Very solid overall. I like the bass line. In general, all the instruments mesh well together. dark side of the son—I like the tone and delivery on the vocal performance, as well as the rhythm guitar. Fracta...

Re: Until it Happens to You

Until It Happens to You by Lichen Throat Anna went to Moscow, Danced at a fancy ball. On her way home, at a snowy train station Vronsky spoke the words that gave her palpitations. She said, “No,” at first, But from then she was cursed. You never know what you’ll do Until it happens to you. Levin wa...

Re: (Don't be a) Lazy Boy (or girl and do your) Reviews

Berkeley Social Scene—Okay, that organ bridge was awesome. I like the lyrics. Good mix, particularly with the guitars. I wish the chorus was catchier. James Owens—The lyrics made me laugh. This is not my favorite genre, but you do it well. Nice vocal performance. Lichen Throat (me)—I was pretty happ...

Re: Don't Have a Cow, Pig, Goat or... (Our Forfeited Friends Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I like the intro, the chorus, and the instrumental bits. The pre-chorus doesn’t work as well for me. Really nice guitar work on the bridge. dark side of the son—The reminds me of The Bats, particularly at the beginning. (That’s a compliment.) You’ve somehow managed to make a so...

Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

ARSEnal —I’m not sure how seriously this was intended to be taken. I kind of like the weird ending. The lyrics are amusing. The vocal is hard to make out on some (but not all) of my speakers/headphones. Berkeley Social Scene —I keep changing my mind about this one. I like the chorus. Some of the lo...

Re: Flame On! (Flamethrower Reviews)

Chthonic Doom—I inadvertently listened to this at 1.5x speed the first time through, and it sounded awful. It’s much better at its proper speed, however. Nice guitar work. I’d like more of an explosion of sound after the “burn, burn, burn” part, but there are parts of this that I quite enjoy, even t...

Foxglove

Foxglove by Unsharp Mask I used to read my local paper every night. But then I got mad and canceled my subscription ‘cause of what they write. I don’t trust the liberal media; no, I don’t trust them at all. Don’t touch nothing without my Fox glove, Fox glove, Fox glove. Don’t believe anything you d...

Re: But in all seriousness... (Zero Gravity reviews)

Lots of good songs this week. Berkeley Social Scene—I thought this was one of your better songs. I love the guitar tone and the transition from verse to chorus. I actually like the synth strings. Making the chorus a little more exuberant would be the cherry on top, but overall it’s a very good song....

Re: Tom Petty Coverfight

I sent mine in. This exercise gave me even more respect for the genius of Tom Petty. It would never in my life occur to me to use this chord:
