Re: It's not my fault (I Can’t Turn It Off reviews)

Pigfarmer Jr—I know too much about dams and their maintenance to avoid being distracted by the technical content of the lyrics, but that won’t be a issue for more than 0.001% of listeners. By the way, a dam built in 1969 would be significantly newer than most of the dams administered by my agency. ...

add—Great overall sound and mix. I wasn’t a huge fan of the vocal melody, but this sounds like a well produced, well performed, fully realized song. Balls to Monte—This sounds like a previously unreleased rarity from The Who, except that the drums lack the wild abandon. I think you hit the nail abou...

Re: Case closed! (Another Mystery Solved prefight)

I'm in with what I'm pretty sure is the worst song I've ever recorded. I tried to start with the vocal melody first, and it was an unmitigated disaster. Then I tried to see if I could improve things with heavy-handed processing, which didn't help much. At least it's in 3/4, though I'm not sure anyon...

Re: Another Mystery Solved

Another Mystery Solved by Escapegoat I saw you there in your long black coat With a bowl of pork lo mein, Your wet hair clinging to your throat, Since you’d walked there in the rain. It seemed like nobody else was there, Even though the place was packed. Like you were lit by a spotlight’s glare Whi...

Re: Remixfight

Here's mine. I added a tiny bit but mostly used the tracks in the download, and not nearly all of them.

Anyone else get that? You write a song and you think it's a good one, yet when you come to record it you just can't make it sound like it did in your head. It just comes out as something different?
Almost every time.

Yes, it is! I've used instrumental rounds a few times before, but not for a while. I'm glad you liked it.

Re: What was that? (Disembodied Voice reviews)

Number two: you have a strong tendency in your vocals of smearing the pitches, i.e. at the start of the note you need some time to "warm up" to the right pitch. This is partially due to technique, but it's also habit. Simply by doing some occasional practicing hitting notes faster (without trying t...

Re: Who's that?! (Disembodied Voice prefight)

To demonstrate that I apparently have no control over my output, I attempted to write a song in the style of The National and ended up with a stompy hoedown.

Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

Robyn Mackenzie—I’m not completely sold on the “want it, want it” and “got it, got it”, but the rest of this is awesome. Grungy but still melodic. The variability in your vocal cadence keeps thing interesting, too. Good work. Were you any in any previous bands in New Mexico? Tbh I'm not sure I was ...

Re: Aarararrrargh! (Screaming Into the Void reviews)

add—For some reason I took a dislike to the descending instrumental melodies. In a way that I cannot entirely articulate, they seem to bring a lightheartedness to the song that seems out of place with the lyrics. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was an issue specific to my subconscious, rather than a...

Re: Aren't we all just (Screaming Into The Void prefight)

I'm in with what strikes me as a mediocre song. I was trying to work on vocal melody, but I don't see much improvement so far. I did, however, fulfill the Spalted Rhyme Challenge.

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

add—Nice mix; everything sounds very sharp and clear. This reminds me a bit of a band called Bishop Allen; I think the resemblance is a combination of your vocal, the xylophone-like instrument, and the chorus melody. The verses sometimes feel a little slow, but I like how the chorus bursts out so en...
