Re: Phyllis Wheatley Reviews

MC Thundercheeks: This is stupid and sounds terrible. Melvin: Not much to say about this. It’s from the heart. BSS: RIFFAGE! I don’t really approve of using the poet’s words as the song lyrics. To me, you’re just reading something instead of saying something. Maybe an exception would be if the music...

Re: No Room for Your Reviews (No Vacancy Reviews)

Some quick reviews, better late than never: Majicat: This reminds me of some of my earliest efforts at writing and recording. There’s a purity to this that I like. Keep making music. Toby Roktot: Had me smiling in the first three seconds. Nice little tune, but things get a little out of control arou...

Re: Where Anna Can See Your Reviews (WACS Reviews)

It Isn’t Human Nope, it’s not human. Sounds like the drum track of a song that could be good, but there’s not a whole lot here. We may never know. Glennny & Annabella You had me at the tambourine. It sounds amazing! I really like the groove you lay down in this track. But what the fuck is wrong wit...

Re: Where Anna Can See Your Reviews (WACS Reviews)

Thanks for the review, TCC. I must say, things are a lot quieter around Song Fight than they were before I took my long hiatus. Moving slow. Not many reviews. It's a bit sad! I appreciate you taking the time. I'm going to start jotting my reviews this afternoon...

Moonshine Lullabies: Now this is loose and toe-tappin’ in a really great way. Terrific performances and the recording sounds like some folks jamming...

Re: UPDATED: All you need is to write a song (pre-fight)

Hey Songfighters! I just submitted my first tune in a long, long time. There was a convergence of factors at play here, not the least of which was a recent thread asking where I'd gone. It's nice to be remembered. Not sure I'm in top form these days, but it's nice to be back. Looking forward to ever...

Re: Nur Ein VII: Final Round

Ross has got to be the sentimental favourite here. He’s the workmanlike songsmith, the second-most prolific contestant in the regular fights, and a well-loved competitor who has yet to take the Ultimate Prize. I recently complimented Frankie for being one of the only Songfighters who can pull off Gn...

Re: Nur Ein VII: Round Six

Hey guys - I thought I posted yesterday but I guess I never hit 'submit'.
Suffice to say, I am disappointed not to go to the finals, but there could not be two more talented and consistent competitors than Ross and Frankie.
Congrats fellas! Can't wait to hear you bring your proverbial A games!

Re: Nur Ein VII: Round Six

Hello Songfight! I’ve been keeping an ear on this year’s competition, but have been unable to contribute much until this round (I’m in The WSA for those who may not know). Anyway, I thought I would weigh in with some reviews (and I don’t give a toss about whether you met the challenge or not): ADD T...

Re: Melvin HXARO

Wow! Guys, I really don’t know what to say. This is amazing. Every song has impressed me. I’d like to write reviews to express my thoughts in more detail, so bear with me and I’ll post them soon.

Above all, THANK YOU to everyone who has submitted a song, and to whoever organized this! What an honour!

Sorry about posting reviews early, everyone! As Glen said, my opinion is not indicative of how the scores will end up.

Re: Nur Ein IV: Round Six

Andrew Reist: I can’t believe how hard this rocks! Drums sound amazing, guitars sound perfectly crunchy, and that falsetto hook is totally killer. The genre change made me laugh out loud, and yet it doesn’t undermine the serious rockingness of the song at all, especially with that throat-shredding o...

Re: Ready, Aim, Review! (I Am a Target reviews)

I don't have time for full reviews this time around, but I have to say that State Shirt totally brought the house down this week. I can't even bring myself to vote for anyone else. Seriously. I keep going back to this track. It's amazing. "Life's hard enough as it is, you don't want to cry anymore....

This has to be about the nicest rejection I have had since Janice in High School.
Heh. That's why I had to wait until this late in the competition to start writing reviews. Any earlier, and some of the rejections would have been cruel.

Re: Nur Ein IV: Round Five

I'm surprised to see "obvious" or "predictable" used to describe our Round Five song, to be honest. I felt like there were some abrupt and strange transitions, though they were designed to fit and support the lyrics. I'm also surprised to read this backhanded compliment, knowing the dirty secrets o...

Now that the list of contenders has been whittled down a bit, some reviews: Andrew Reist: I’ve been hearing a lot of an Our Lady Peace influence in your stuff lately—especially the octave-jumping falsetto thing. It’s cool, and you do it well. I’m still blown away by how much you’ve progressed as a m...

It would be nice if the judges would clarify if I was disqualified or just no-one liked it. After all there are no 'rules' that I broke, I'm not trying to argue but I would like to think that the song wasn't the worst for every judge on it's own merits. It was liked.
