Re: Nur Ein XIII: Songs and Scores (no comments)

Round Six of Nur Ein XIII is in the record books.

The winner of Round Five is Vom Vorton(who still doesn't get immunity), who will go head-to-head against Merisan (who is repeating their final appearance) in the final!
Owl Chemist, Rob From Amersfoort, and Carlo Bruno Jr. are eliminated. Tsch!

Re: Nur Ein XIII: Songs and Scores (no comments)

Merisan and Owl Chemist win Round Five with a tie. Since there's no immunity this round I don't see a reason to break the tie.

Lucky Witch & the Righteous Ghost, Mandibles, and Grumpy Mike have been eliminated. Tschüss!

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Five "Hazardous Waste"

this is the part when judging gets really tough. they're all great songs and it's painful to rank them in the elimination spots. hopefully the judges' summation will even out the choices. Mandibles - the chorus is oddly rushed on some syllables. The vocal isn’t my favorite style but it’s well done. ...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Four "Never Knew The Guy"

We had not only a tie for the 4th elimination, but a tie using the usual tiebreaker procedure... so we now have a second tiebreaker. Thanks roymond!

not really, the first verse was an outside observer talking about the crowd. also, that was a fast response.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Four "Never Knew The Guy"

Carlo - it’s weird to read these lyrics, hard to see how you’d sing them… but you pull it off. Neat. nice horns and guitar. Cave - i like some belew, but the vocal cadence isn’t making me happy. I do like the belew-esque guitar sounds. I do think the lyrics are a little too straight up, not enough p...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Three "We Should"

Mandibles - this really reminds me of a disney song. It’s definitely well done but it isn’t what i’m in the mood for tonight. Vocals are really good. Matchy - the sore spot line is good. I’m not grabbed by your chorus, but this is in general a catchy, fun song. Merisan - love the synths. Not sure wh...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Two "3:20"

I realized this morning I never posted my reviews even though I did them, so here they are, for whatever they might be worth. Bss - i like the reggae groove. I was wondering if somebody would go this lyrical route. Nice solo section. Bmac - i like the repeated use of 320s. The lyrics in general are ...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Three "We Should"

Actually, Round 4's challenge is "contains a Pink Floyd reference in every verse and chorus".
Yeah, I'm thinking things that aren't really instruments, be creative. Use what you have in your house. Phish used to use vacuum cleaners but it sounded kinda terrible :)

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

Amazing that anyone doesn't know what Soylent Green is. What I find disturbing is the product that actually exists now called Soylent. I'm like, "does no one remember that movie and its iconic punch line as shouted by Charlton Heston??!?!" Why is it named Soylent? We take our name from th...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

Bss - i’m not that excited by the rhymes here. But i do like when the backing vocals come in. maybe there should be more of that. I like the thneed reference. Bmac - premium, heh.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Rob From Amersfoort – hell yeah all music should sound like this. A bit short but I just played it again. And again. This is how I wanted Brian Eno’s music to go post-roxy but he went all pretentious ambient rubbish instead. My Fellow judges have cloth ears. I totally agree with you on the Eno thin...
