Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

Fair enough! The chorus harmonies are pretty effective, I guess it's the verse where it didn't quite work for me.

Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - the vocal melody kinda sinks this one for me, it just feels like it follows a very obvious pattern along with the chords. Maybe that's a deliberate attempt to sound robot-esque, but it's just feels uninspired to me. The bridge is cool though, the solo is good as ever, and I ...

Excellent podcasting again, so much detailed discussion this time around. I like that it's resulting in more discussion on the forum, too!

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Tim Hinkle - really like the fuzzy bassline and the clattery percussion. The vocal melody seems to lose its way a bit when you step up to a higher register partway in I think, but the instrumental break is great and won me back over. Phillipso - killer guitar work again, I love those interwoven har...

Re: BoJack Horseman

I watched 7 and 8 last night. The dolphin version of Flip gave me one of the biggest laughs this season, and I love that they can still drop such a big, important ending onto an episode even when it's that ridiculously goofy. Episode 8 must be one of the most densely packed they've ever done! I'm su...

Re: BoJack Horseman

I watched that one last night, it very much lived up to the hype that it's been picking up here on Songfight.net's buzzing BoJack Horseman discussion thread!

I love the way they keep finding new ways to break my heart.

Re: BoJack Horseman

Really enjoying the new season. I'm five episodes in, I think the Diane-centric one was my favourite so far. Lots of fascinating story threads set up for this season, excited to find out where they take them - I'm sure they'll find another way to break my heart somehow. This is absolutely not a crit...

Re: Most anticipated albums of 2018?

Robyn has just announced that she has a new album out next month, and it has instantly become my most anticipated album of (the rest of) this year! Body Talk is possibly my favourite pop album ever. My best-so-far of this year: 1. The Beths - Future Me Hates Me (super-catchy New Zealand power-pop) 2...

Re: XOXO Fest 2018

It's so good. A friend of mine had a Don't Hug Me I'm Scared cake made for his birthday, and I'd definitely rank it among the best novelty cakes I've ever seen.

Re: Look At The Awesome (Thin Air Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - this is pretty great. The few issues that I repetitively bring up when critiquing BSS are all absent and while I've heard a few tracks from you that I like more than this one, I'd still put this in the top tier. Bob and the Boggles - love the vibe of this one, the unusual ch...

I've never voted for myself either. Politicians do that, and nobody likes politicians. Although I did go back through my entries to check whether it would have ever made a difference (it wouldn't).

Re: Might As Well Pile On (My Last Nerve Reviews)

Really enjoyed that! I loved having the New Ugly to listen to during Nur Ein and this was great too, I hope you keep it up.

I liked Duckman's extended outro! But I'm not really sure why! Thank you for reminding me to watch his YouTube video, which was cool.

Re: Might As Well Pile On (My Last Nerve Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - the opening riff sounds like it’d fit on the soundtrack to an Italian horror film which is a GOOD start. I have some issues with the vocals (I’m sorry, I feel like I say this too much) but the vintage e-piano stuff sounds great. Bob and the Boggles - I really love this, it’s...

Re: Disenchanted

I love the Simpsons and Futurama and I'm also a big fan of Broad City, so I was really looking forward to this, but it just doesn't work for me at all. I made it through six episodes and had enough, I don't really like the characters and the laughs are few and far between (and a lot of the jokes fee...

Big batch of songs! I'll get some reviews kicked off... Berkeley Social Scene - really like the smooth mix of guitars and synths, and the lyrics made me smile. There are a few rough edges I found a little offputting (and not in a "live performance" way - some odd glitchy clicking sounds, a...

Re: I Write Them Every Hundred Years (The Return of the Century Reviews)

add : that lo-fi hi-hat sound is so charming, love the organ and the doubled lead acoustic guitar bits too. Not quite as keen on the vocal here as I have been on your other recent songs for some reason, but there's nothing wrong with it, just personal taste. Minor criticism anyway, because this is ...

Re: What's your favorite DAW?

I moved from Cubase to Reaper about 8 years ago when I started to get uncomfortable with using cracked software and wanted something reasonably priced, but 8 years down the line I'm happier with Reaper than I ever was with Cubase and it really fits my workflow very well indeed. I flirted with Ableto...
