Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

reviews written quite some time ago and forgotten to post. sorry if my news came too late. 73 - i really like that vocal. It reminds me of some 60’s psychedelic pop stuff. Why would your significant other quote the hendrix song? I’m not sure that would come up in a normal voicemail… but i like every...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

Andy and Bill never explained why they ranked us so low. i thought, look at my reviews... and then i looked for my reviews and i think i forgot to post them. be right on that. in any case, the songs were all good and ranking them is hard. some songs are always going to be in the bottom part and tha...

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

Thanks for the followup. For 1, I felt like it wasn't fulfilling the challenge as well, although I do see your point.
For 2, I only saw the Eiffel Tower from afar so I didn't know about the elevators. Thanks.

Re: Nur Ein XII- Songs, Scores and Titles (no comments)

Round Five of Nur Ein XII is in the record books.

The winner of Round Five is Skub (who still doesn't get immunity).
Balance Lost, Micah Sommersmith, and Berkeley Social Scene are eliminated. Tsch!

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

73 - this reminds me of a less sterile kraftwerk, and that is cool. The lyrics are sometimes a little silly but then again so were theirs. I love the vocal tone. Doesn’t overstay its welcome. Balance - i feel like the intro meanders a bit. When the vocals come in it’s more solid, and the funky prog ...

Welcome to the sixth round of the twelfth edition of the Nur Ein. Title: Excuse Me Non-optional challenge: A lipogram - your lyrics may not contain any letter "A" (nor "a" for the pedantic among you) - that means none. Zero. Zip. Zilch. No a's. Don't even think about it. We'll fi...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

I'd hesitate to call anybody accurate or wrong or whatever based on an average, but I see your point. I'm not sure if an average of 5 is statistically significant. To me, this round was a very close one for the most part and ended up with some ranking surprises. My rankings this time were more based...

Round Four of Nur Ein XII is in the record books. The winner of Round Three is Berkeley Social Scene (who has terrible timing as there is no more immunity starting this round). nurein2017-4.jpg Notice that we have two clear eliminations and one tie. As seen at least once before , when there is a tie...

somebody proposed a challenge where they wanted to specify the genre of music you'd have to create. if you think this is bad, you should be glad i vetoed that one :)

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 3 - Nur Ein XII round 2

To me, were I a judge I'd be more impressed with one sentence once, rather than a shorter sentence cut up and repeated in part or in full many times. Yeah. I gave double challenge credit to those who stretched it rather than repeating it. I found it more satisfying. Look at me giving away all my ju...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

If I read the challenge carefully it says each guest vocalist in their own section. I don't necessarily like it, but it is clear, is it not? -bill Yes, one guest vocalist per section. It's just whether you count BVs as 'vocals' or not. Your own individual calls, we'll decide on a case by case basis...

The music is great. It reminds me more of “one of these days” than nick’s. Balance - i learned a new wor...
