Re: NUR EIN XIV - Round 6 - You Too

Rachael Layne You Too [Verse structure taken from "Blackbird" by the Beatles] Dancing in the kitchen Swaying all alone You look up, smile and set down the phone Nestled in your embrace I'm reminded how I need your softness and your strength When you asked to marry me I asked if you were sure And whe...

Re: Nur Ein XIV - R5 - WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

We did an acoustic only version of my No Memory entry that is on Spotify as well if anyone would like to hear it minus the chip tunes.

Your posterior is a collective?
Well since Glenn is assisting I am going to count his posterior as well. That may qualify the term more accurately. Haha! ;)

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

Rachael Layne - I do not understand why this got ranked so low from some of the other judges. I really liked it. (References that only Niveous will get - this reminds me of Max Miller meets Killy Dwyer .) Cool beats, underwater synth sounds, vocal that dances around the beat, so much going on with ...

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

Rachel Layne: a cool take on the title and I liked your use of sample. Those two synths that come in at the start are really delicious, the one in the right and the bubbly one that pans in and out on both sides. Your use of backing vocals to increase the tension was really effective. The intent of ...

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

Rachael Layne The music sets a creepy mood, and you bring attitude & personality to the performance. Overall though, this doesn’t work for me at all. There’s no hook to grab the listener nor is it fun to sing at all. The sample works, but it’s not the greatest use this round, and it really don’...

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

Rachael Layne - total genre shift here! It's like a gothy trip-hop thing? An interesting change, not sure it totally works for me but it's pretty fun. There are some vocal lines early in the song that sound way off key to me in a really distracting way, but since you're such a good singer I'm think...

Rachael Layne - This is creepy and weird. Like Abominominous, I'm sure there are people who would love this to pieces (pun intended), but it's not for me. It's a convincing performance, however, so good job. It made me uncomfortable so I think you probably achieved something there. Thank you! Yeah,...

I'd like to stay within walking distance of the venue, and since this is probably my only vacation this year, I c...
