Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Five- "House of Cards"

Congratulations to Starfy! 2 weeks in a row! I have now equalled my (solo) personal best, woot! I wrote these the other day but wanted to wait until the results were out before posting. There's few things worse in Nur Ein world than getting a negative comment which stokes your fears of getting cut. ...

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Five "House of Cards"

Balance Lost Challenge: There are two breakdowns in this song; one at 0.33 and another at 1.50. One of us is always waiting On the 13th floor There is no elevator This situation needs a little patience When we've both calmed down 'Til then I'll see you later This house of cards It all falls down Si...

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Four- "Crush Season"

Thnak you for your answer.

Do you think you could find another method of scoring where Balance Lost would win? For example, by alphabetical order or by how many dirty swears were used in the song.

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Four- "Crush Season"

I have a hypothetical question for the judges. What if, say, I had got 2 points from Judge 1 resulting in a 3-way tie. In that instance, I would beat Starfinger in a tiebreaker, Starfinger beats Moss Palace, and Moss Palace beats me. How would the tie then be broken? Would it be based on how many to...

I meant it as in you're upping your game each round. Maybe tryhard wasn't the right word to use since people often use pejoratively.

I listened 3 or 4 times and would rank the songs as follows. It was difficult to separate them though, it was pretty tight.

All good points, Siebass. I do appreciate that judges are volunteers and that it is a thankless task, so I'm grateful for the sacrifice that they are all making. That being said, having been a judge here on multiple occasions; it's not that hard, especially when you don't have to write reviews, whic...

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Three- "My (blank) are the Best People"

Balance Lost - this is another one i feel is kind of samey throughout. Lyric wise i’m not sure the grandad part comes across. Can’t tell if you had a guest. Thanks for the review. Can't tell if I had a guest? Are you serious? You think verse vocalist and chorus vocalist are the same person? Do you ...

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Two- "Factory Reset"

Balance Lost - nice mood. The vocals in the chorus (?) are very effective. The shift when it comes overstays its welcome somewhat. I wanted less repetition. Is there a lyrical shift to go along with the musical one? Thanks for the feedback, Bill. I appreciate it. The answer to the question is no. T...

If I was a judge I would instantly give 0 points to anybody who rhymes "people" with "steeple". Also, damn you judges for giving us a title that ends in a word that perfectly rhymes with only one other word. All the best people Are quite deceitful All things being equal Something...

Re: Nur Ein XIX Round Two- "Factory Reset"

Well, I've sent something in but had zero time to work on it since Wednesday so you're only getting a half-finished track from me this time. Unfortunately I haven't been able to address the lyrical part of the challenge (not intentionally anyway). Fingers crossed. Good luck to all of you.
