Got to get these reviews in before the new prompt or Spud posts the new SongFight.
Sorry these are sparse, but there's 25 of them. PM me if you want more detail.
Adam Adamant - I like this song because it's sad in such a beautiful way. Arrangement is tastefully minimal and showcases the vocals nicely (though the vocals could
be louder and less pitchy). I'd put this in my top 5, whatever that's worth.
Balance Lost - I like how the song changes up for the chorus. Everything is a little buzzy for my taste but that's because I'm getting old. Vocals are not distinct
enough in the mix to grab me.
Boffo Yux Dudes - crazy imagery here. Out with a bang, eh? Interesting take on the prompt. I grin at the lyrical abandon. The arrangement suits the song but the
electric piano grates on me.
Carlo Bruno Jr. - Nice 6/8 tune. Vocals are not distinct enough in the mix to grab me really, but very thematic.
Cavedwellers - I was kind of hoping there'd be more of that chiptune in the beginning. Still, frenetic and bouncy so that's a plus. A tongue-in-cheek ode to concealed
Chokehold Princess - I'd love to hear this done by four top-notch singers. Maybe with another verse, even. There was a nice change in there. Actually, do you have
this charted out? Send it to me. I might learn something.
Dani House - Touches of Roger Clyne in here. Good attitude, loose and rowdy.
DJ Ranger Den - In the middle of a dirty, crumbled main street of a bombed out town, there's a broken TV. Dust blows past, carrying the last vestiges of humanity
with it. This song is playing on that TV.
Frankie Big Face - Fuzz bass! Catchy. Interesting lyrical content. Easy to listen to. Bonus points for key change!
Governing Dynamics - lots of energy, wish the vocals were a little more front-and-center. You've got more than a couple of really nice phrase turns and they get lost
under the guitar. It could use a more-developed chorus in my opinion, to change it up a bit more.
Inflatable Vegetables - everything's not quite in sync here. Which is a pity because there's some good content in the arrangement and lyrics. Is that bit at the end
from GI Joe or something?
Jon Eric - Nice tune. I like the synth solo. dark turn at the end there.
Ken Mahru - funny thing - one of my coworkers knows you from Bread Circus. Aaaanyway. Crunchy and a power chorus! Nice.
Manhattan Glutton - total Alice in Chains / SoundGarden vibe. At least that's the connection my weary brain is making at the moment. Nice harmonies on the chorus.
Interludes are a little noodly maybe.
Merisan - A second female vocalist in this round? Excellent. I really like this. Delivery is good, and the imagery is solid. Harmonies kick. I have nothing to complain
Paco del Stinko - More western! But dirty. Gritty. and Stinko all the way. Actually I didn't realize this was you at first. Until "corpse" anyway. Great spaghetti western
imagery. And good use of soundtrack effects. I don't know how to phrase that right.
Rabid Garfunkel - I can't give you points for creativity. But I can give you points for being dramatic, aggressive and political. And that's more or less the same thing.
Ross Durand - Ballad of the First Responders - very timely. Without being topical. Wish I had a 12-string electric. Sounds nice and jangly.
ROTR - waaaayyyy too much distortion. I'm getting old I know it, but dude. Back that off a little.
Sky Pup - soft and thin. I think I get what you were going for, but there's not enough energy to keep the focus. Bring it back next week and blow our heads off.
Tubba Gutz - Pieces of this made me think of Eric Cartman with a DJ setup. I can't make most of the lyrics out which sort of keeps me from enjoying it.
The Tydon Docks - Great energy. I'm sort of surprised that nobody else wrote an "it's all a euphamism for sex" tune. However, I'm not that surprised that you wrote
Nice grooving rhythm here. Enjoyable listen.
The Various Artists - The guns as a rhythmic effect are cool. But in a song so inorganic, they should have been tighter rhythmically.
WreckdoM - The first part of this sounds like the theme from a traveling carnival funhouse in the future. Grungy. But I'm always down with getting peanuts for free.
And chocolate malts. And shooting mules. But don't tell anybody about that last part.
Your Kid’s Friend’s Dad - I think I forgot to compress/boost the master track. It's sort of quiet next to everybody else's tune.
