Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

This is a really strong round... given the number of songs, I might not get around to doing a full set of reviews but I do want to give a shout out onlichen throat- the effort you put into the vocal track shows huge improvement! It really does sound great; the rhythms and melody were much more clear...

Re: NUR EIN XIV - Message Received

Re: No escape from the reality of (Is This Real Life Reviews)

Is this real life reviews Hampshire Cape- Great vocals. Nice, relaxed technique with an easy timbre and a subtle strength. Good mix, though I would have liked just a little bit less guitar, they felt a little hot compared to the rest. The organ really folds well into the fabric of the piece. The son...

Re: No escape from the reality of (Is This Real Life Reviews)

Mandibles - OK, this is the clear winner of the operatic sub-challenge. All hail Queen Cybronica! I knew you had an amazing voice, but WOW. This is so good, if I were to stretch for some criticisms then maybe the verses are a little wordy in places and some of the vocal timing seems to come in a fr...

Operatic vocals? Did you put that in just for me? Aw, shucks! Very excited about the mandibles submission. Had some computer trouble before submission but we made it in!

Re: Is it all in my head? (My Favorite Monster Reviews)

A bit late, here are my thoughts. Also, does anyone else have trouble listening to the stream? Whenever I try it, it randomly skips from song to song before cutting out. Happens on my computer too. Anyway, reviews! Reve and Ujn Utterly delightful, really right, well polished, stylistically spot on, ...

Re: He lives in my basement (My Favorite Monster prefight)

Sometimes these song challenges feel a bit like scattergories, where you have to come up with a good response, but also make it something that no one else thought of. Paco, after reading the lyrics, it seems like now the group must devolve into arguing over whether our premises cancel each other's o...

Re: He lives in my basement (My Favorite Monster prefight)

In with a minute to spare, bass line recorded the 10 minutes before then... No truth this week, so it's a Cybronia solo single. This was a fun one to try out some new techniques with. The bridge especially was fun to create.

Re: A Room With Some New Unused (A Doom With A View Reviews)

Lichen Throat: Don’t listen to the others! I love the mellow feel of the drums. Snare would have spoiled the sound, I think. I really like this song: the lyrics tell a good story, the instrumentals are excellent (I LOVE the instrumental break). Even the melody sounds great, but the vocals are, as al...

Re: Book yours now! (A Doom With A View prefight)

First time mandibles are in Songfight; got in just under the wire. I definitely read the submission time as pm, so, not as polished as I'd like, nor is it the intended singer... c'est la vie!

Re: SpinTunes 15 Round 4 Challenge (Final Round)

Mandibles- ... The mix is really weird to me. That flute thing is really buried. That flute thing was me! I was singing that high line in the later choruses. I was worried that if it was too loud it would sound weird. I suppose I ended up erring on the side of caution. Mixing is probably the thing ...

There are 3 or more Ns in "glennny". There should never be 2. Ideally, it's not Capitalized, but that's not a big deal.
My mistake. Autocorrect is a cruel mistress.

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

VV-
Such cuties! Thank you for sharing. :)

Also, after reading your comments, while I liked your song, I would hate for you to sustain vocal damage- if it made your throat sore, stick with your normal lovely sound!
