Re: Nur Ein XVI: Final Round "Blue"

Here for your weekly dose of 1 review... Since this round was inspired by the late Mr Lang I will write reviews in a spirit of which I think he would have approved, i.e. nasty, nitpicky and dismissive. Crown Shy : You're still plugging this c86 indie crap as if it wasn't redundant-on-arrival, althou...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Six "Devil In The Rain"

Because you fine people deserve reviews, even if they are from the mind of an idiot. Written in no particular order, and before the results were posted if some of the comments seem redundant.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

Balance Lost - Guess which three judges are American? [beleaguered sigh] So look, I felt bad about this ranking too. I know what The Sun is, I know why it sucks, and I get why you'd be frustrated with it. But as an American, this isn't part of the daily fabric of my life, and I didn't emotionally c...

Re: Here's an alternative to (House Arrest reviews)

I enjoyed the BSS tune this week. Nice clicky drums, and I liked the guitar and vocals

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

the Sun is crap but I can think of other newspapers that should probably get the chop first. This is just our little secret, but as soon as the title "Waiting for the Daily Mail to Fall" is posted along with another rondel challenge I'll be submitting this same track to that fight. Thanks for the r...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

Having listened to all these songs a few times I think I'm for the chop this week. And now for the reviews you never knew you didn't want from someone who's opinion doesn't matter!

Non-optional challenge: Downward Modulation
What are the odds. I did this in my Waiting For the Sun to Fall entry. I presume I get extra points for clairvoyance (it's not 20/20).

Re: Nur Ein XVI - Waiting for the Sun to Fall

Balance Lost The Sun in my song refers to the most popular newspaper in the UK. It is a shitheap rag with boobs. The song is about hoping for the decline of this paper and the media empire of it's billionaire owner, Rupert Murdoch, and his malign influence on both British and American society. I'm ...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Three "Pleasant Row"

Regarding the vocals, yeah I can see that. I think I turned DOWN the lo-cut filter or whatever the knob is called in Garageband because I feel like one of the strengths of my voice is that it is lower-situated than most women, so I wanted it to sound warm and rich. But I guess I overdid it because ...

I feel Glen's voice in particular feels more comfortable in the lower register. This seems to be a musica...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Three "Pleasant Row"

I know this is irregular, but Crumpart made this swell artwork and though this is only my opinion I think it is superior to the official artwork in the fight. What is the possibility of getting it changed? https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/166751958781132811/851507609077022720/Untitled_Artwork....

I wrote half of these last week and thought I might as well finish them off. BSS: This has loads of little twinkles and rhythmic jerks that I dig. I'm pleased that there are more of the little arrangement details that felt a bit absent from the last tune. Nice harmonies in the chorus. Brown Word: Co...

If you're a WSA Brain Trust fan, you'll also like the Cavedwellers song because there is......

"Speaking in Polish!!!"
I am a fan of that song. And it is almost certainly because of the Polish bit (and not the fact that I'm a massive narcissist)
