Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Six

... only problem - I mentioned it in the pub - and a pissed mate is now insisting on rephrasing every conversation so the letter "a" isn't used. He's an annoying prick. Tee hee! I'd use 'irksome prick', better to be in the spirit of the test. I will try writing my reviews without the lett...

Re: Listen Through The Static For Your (Cassini Reviews)

Well, I liked only one of the submissions. I'm not going to start telling everyone how great their submission is if I don't think it's great, and if I wrote about how great it is that people tried to do things, it wouldn't be a review. I'm trying to provide honest feedback here and I'm not objectiv...

Re: Listen Through The Static For Your (Cassini Reviews)

W.A.I.L. Metaluna – impressive metalling. The guitar tone is a bit clean / synthetic-sounding (not saying it is, just sounds that way). Like the spacey slow-down bit. Even more so when it proves not just to be a slow-down bridge but evolving into the song itself. The lack of words and a certain genr...

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

Yeah, sorry, bad choice of word. I was (now I think about it,wrongly) using it to mean 'sounding like it means something when it doesn't' - not quite the same as 'pretentious' but can't think of the right word right now...

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

All these are good. 73 Keep It beautiful - starts so well. I love me some motorik, and the moog keyboard is great. maybe it's the (albeit lovely) vocal melody or it's the lock of variance of themes within the repetition, I get a tiny bit bored. It lacks a little of the bite and joy I think of when I...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Dear CR a) The word is 'caprice' not 'capriciousness. b) Its definition - "a sudden and unaccountable change of mood or behaviour" does not accurately describe the situation. There is nothing 'unaccountable' about a judge not liking a particular song as much as another; not that on e judge...

I also can'[t remember (Niv may be able to clarify) - XTRG's 'The Nicest Part of Town Is Also the Darkest' (sic) was a think a judge-band - Noah(?), Roymond, Niv, myself and one other who has completely gone from my recall.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Oh.FTR, back then only two judges bothered to do it, Jack Shite and me. Everyone else had an 'excuse' (though to be fair, Niv's was pretty a fair one). Also FTR I won (though all evidental proof of that disappeared along with Dumbrella boards. *ahem*). A version of it became 'Jah Humbug!' on the Joh...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

I did like (was it year one, three?) where the judges, after the contest, were invited to record their own song (title was "Don't Judge Me") which was then judged by the competitors. Oh and the judges had to include*ALL* the challenges. At least it was a 'creative' way of all of us disappe...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Maybe we should let the contestants rank the judges for each round when the contest is over and we can throw them off next year. ;) 'Cos we found it so easy to find five judges willing to do it this year? :) I mean, I don't want to say 'whiny, ungrateful contestants = lack of desire to become invol...

With the Skub comment I was just attempting and apparently failing per usual to make a joke (specifically about Skub being tough competition) as I attempted to indicate via the :P emoji. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Ah no, I got it, found it funny, made a joke back, which is why I used the :) You see, perfect example...

Here is how much each judge was "off" by, compared to the final results ... You just never know how things are going to play out. Except when Skub is in the round, then Skub wins. :P Hmm are you just working the average here? I don't see how that shows anything particularly profound, unle...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

I was surprised by the voting patterns of the judges this time round. I thought I'd figured out a fair few of the variants (geographical, genre bias etc) but these scores wrong-footed me. Anyway, that's the rub of the (monde)green, I guess. Just wanted to say that I'm really disappointed personally ...

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

Yeah, I agree. I mean by the terms of the challenge, a prominent enough repeating riff would be enough to 'pass the challenge', though I think it might be seen as a cop-out ...

Sorry in delay for results, folks. We're waiting on one more judge, who has a knock-on delay from the slightly late posting of the songs. Should be today some time.

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

This would pass the challenge. It's prominent use of musical repetition - which this has in spades. I love Can. I imagined this along with Stereolab would be go-tos for reference but plenty of punk and post punk songs fit the model as well - 'Public Image' by PIL and 'Boredom' by Buzzcocks spring to...
