Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

Balance Lost - I was honestly pretty excited to hear an extended-length Balance Lost song, but the Radioheady stuff... eh, I dunno. I guess I just prefer your songs that are influenced by any other band in the world, they've never been my thing. I totally understand. I have a complicated relationsh...

Re: Don't client to (The Way It Isn't prefight)

This week my entry is in the style of The Tallest Man On Earth. I attempted the 3-chord challenge but a pesky 4th chord snuck in there. It also features a cameo and SF debut from 'er indoors.

Re: The Way It Isn't

Balance Lost The screaming of the crowd Drowns the doubts I thought I heard All the riches and the diamonds I didn't deserve Was it always me against these criminals Or was I ever free To finish off the things I should've done, but I didn't So have another drag And ignore the television Wasting tim...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

Opinions! Evil Grin: It's competent enough but there's nothing here that grabs me much. The most significant dynamic change in the song is the outro. Unfortunately neither the lyrics nor melody makes me feel much of anything. I guess I have genre bias against this, but some kind of hook would be eno...

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to that. Thanks fellas. I also really love doing the connect-the-dots thing with hip-hop and old songs!

Re: Brother Machine/Seth Gibbs Hxaro

I'd never heard Brother Machine before, slightly before my time. So I had a trawl through the archive, and damn, I really like this stuff. To think I've been living the last 15 years of my life without Space Cadet. I might have to consider getting in on this action. Enjoying the 2004 live video too....

Re: New Music Friday - 2019-06-28

Just saw that the Appleseed Cast released a new album, The Fleeting Light of Impermanence, and it is really good. Lots of cool guitar textures and riffs. I just listened to that this morning! Exciting. They are one of the few bands whose releases I continue to buy years after getting into them. Now...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

Couple of things about the Balance Lost track this week: 1) I apologise for the excessive length. I got a bit carried away when recording this. I understand that it's a pain in the ass to listen to a 6-minute song when there's a few to get through so I understand if you skim through. I tried to make...

Re: Don't get pricked on all of the (Porcupine Reviews)

My stupid thoughts. JBB (electro): Some nice production touches here. There's a very fine line between electropop that's cool and electropop that's cheesy and to my taste this falls just the wrong side of cheesy. That's not to say it's not good too, but the combination of electro squelching and supe...

Also, I apologise if/that I came of as snarky. It's all in good humour and I do appreciate the review. Especially the XTC part, but also the constructive criticism.

Re: Don't get pricked on all of the (Porcupine Reviews)

And here I thought I had successfully drafted that criticism to describe what a listener might think about that line when they hear it rather than what you yourself were thinking when you wrote it. Guess I failed there. Don't be so hard on yourself. It's completely likely that a listener might thin...

[*]Porcupines do stink more than usual when they're stressed, but that's not a super well-known feature of the creature-- I missed the obligatory "only common knowledge in the lyrics" challenge.

Sockpuppet: The beat starts kinda cool but it doesn't really go anywhere so I lose interest after a while. I'm gonna make a wild assumption here that this is fairly tongue-in-cheek, and based on that assumption it's hard to criticise the goofier lyrics (content warnings, etc.) as I feel like goofy ...
