Re: What Pet Is Right For You? (Pick An Animal reviews)

bgm's was my favorite by a pretty wide margin - liked some of the stuff in luntar's too. Voted for bgm & luntar. overall it's a bit quiet around here these days, eh? I'm not too happy with my entry this time around - not too inspired. and I'm not inspired enough to do full reviews either. At lea...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Four

I am a bit disappointed not to make it past 5 songs as this is my 3rd Nur Ein (did 7 & 9 before) and each time I've been eliminated at 5 songs ... so seem to be stuck there ! that said; I had no ideas for "Two Day Shadow" so it's kind of a relief in a way. Out of steam, I think. "...

Re: Watching the Review Thread Riot (Watching the Riot Revie

I liked 'em in something like this order (top four get votes) ... (after getting my songs ranked over at Nur Ein I guess I felt like being a judge for a change !) 1. Sunday Guts - Nice & poppy. Great production. I liked this one quite a lot; lots of catchy musical bits. VOTE. 2. Berkeley Social ...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Three

I got mine in early --- I actually have more time to work on it but I'm digging it how it is and I don't want to tinker it to death. It was great to have guest vocals to work with on this one (my guest sings the vocals ... quite different from my usual vocal style!)

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

Jon Eric - I've got a guest vocalist as my guest for Round 3 ... so you'll get a break from my usual heavily effected vocal thing ! I guess I should put this in the Round 3 thread.

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

if I were a judge I'd rank 'em in an order something like this: Cavedwellers - Really well done and I'm enjoying it even more now on my 2nd listen. Strong vocals. Lovely melodies (and harmonies.) The synthy breakdown bit is a bit out of nowhere especially because it goes into the strings afterwards ...

Re: Nur Ein X - Stolen Diary

Stolen Diary. Johnny is the prettiest boy that I have ever seen. Johnny; the way he makes me feel - it's pretty obscene. I've met a new man and he is handsome, he's turned my world around. Matthew has shown me what grown love is, Johnny was just a playground. So I say: "Who is Matthew? Why you ...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

I had a lot of crazy ideas for who the diary could belong to (good ideas Josh/Zack) but I think I'm going with the 14 year old girl after all. And yeah, I'm definitely thinking about not including the actual title in the lyrics ... it seems like a title that would have to be shoehorned in. But might...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round One

Thanks for the review Josh, your comment is definitely appreciated as psych-rock(pop) is definitely what I'm aiming for and I've been working on my guitar playing a lot so it's nice to get a positive comment on that. and I'm very pleased you said "you guys" which seems to indicate you thin...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

I really love the challenge as it gives me an excuse to really focus on vocal harmonies in a way I often mean to get to, but don't. ... the title on the other hand; well I agree that it's a difficult one to work with but I do have a story idea that fits the title that I now need to somehow turn into...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round One

my favorite five (alphabetically...) Carlo Bruno Jr --- such tight musicianship but it also all sounds like a whole lot of fun (not clinical.) great mix/atmosphere. Cavedwellers --- lots of catchy bits, I really like that guitar riff that comes in during the verses (and is played later in other ways...
