Re: It's a bit white and bony (Skeleton Key reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I really enjoyed this. Great melodies. I particularly like the higher pitched guitar that accompanies the vocal in the chorus. My one nitpick is that the solo, though performed well, doesn’t seem to go with the rest of the song. Nevertheless, this may be my favorite BSS song. E...

This sounds interesting to me, too. I'd do it.

Re: You wouldn't dare... (Try Me Reviews)

This was a weird fight. In general, I didn’t think much of the songs the first couple of times through, but most of them grew on me quite a bit by the time I got around to writing reviews. Berkeley Social Scene —The acoustic guitar sounds great and meshes well with the electric guitar. This is one o...

Re: Unlock your dreams with the (Skeleton Key prefight)

I'm in on time.

We should have some short of a shadow entry procedure for songs with the fight title that have already been recorded by existing bands. I had trouble getting Bishop Allen's "Skeleton Key" out of my head this week.

Re: Skeleton Key

Skeleton Key by Lichen Throat Sit on the couch; leave your jacket on. Got no choice; the end’s foregone. Truth be told, it’s a bit warm. Too late now to think about reform. No window, no sun, no outdoor sounds. No mirror hangs on the shabby wall. You can’t go out and see the grounds, Can’t unlock t...

Re: Try Me

Nine sixteenths or seven eights Silver hammers, tarnished blades. Fire burns through these estates; Plug your ears through cannonades. Try me if you need a ...

I do think I have a decent sense of composition, however.
I agree with that statement. Personally while you may not have the most technical skill I do usually enjoy what you come up with. And anything you've made is immediately recognizable as you!
Thank you. I appreciate the kind words!

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

Lichen Throat: I assume you have read previous reviewers comments (not this fight necessarily) about the sloppy timing of the vocals, I may be wrong but I can only assume at this point you just don't care any more. To the contrary, I am continually concerned about my vocal timing, but I am simply n...

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

Lots of good songs this week! Thus, lots of votes. Absolutely Credible—All the instrument tones sound good. I like the unrestrained vocal, as well as the acoustic guitar in the pre-chorus. This song effectively brings a lot of seemingly disparate elements together in to a cohesive whole. Vote. Aster...

I Used to Know You Better by Lichen Throat I used to know you better when we’d play out in the desert, Ride bikes in scorching weather, and catch lizards in our hands.

Re: Gristle in my teeth and a (Pocket Full Of Bones reviews)

With so many entries, I didn’t get to listen to the songs as many times as I normally do, so my reviews are based more on early impressions than usual. Balance Lost—I’m not sure what to make of the weird beginning, but I like the song overall. Your vocal sounds good, and all the instrumental changes...

Okay I can't go on any more - I don't understand the 'Better than kryptonite' reference and someone must tell me. Please?
I assumed it was a reference to the Spin Doctors' "Pocket Full of Kryptonite," but I'm not sure.

You'll Know It When You See It

Led an expedition to the land up north, Put his armor on like a conquistador. One month later they were hungry and cold; Many were no longer feeling so bold. “Señor, where...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

Balance Lost—The recording and mix sound great; all the instruments are clear and distinct. I found the first part of the song a little dull, but it gradually picks up steam, even before the big change at about 2:40. There are a few moments where you place the perfect chord behind the vocal (like at...

Re: Ye Olde Lyric Marte

All this week I've been a conference on sediment and hydrology. I got a little bored in one of the sessions on stream restoration, which resulted in the lyrics below for "Tumbleweed." This subject is obviously a bit esoteric, but feel free to use them, in whole or in part, as you see fit. Tumbleweed...

Balance Lost—I love the opening. The echo/reverb/delay/whatever-it-is on the vocal fits very well with the song. This is a good song—probably my favorite of yours that I’ve heard. Vote. Dimetrodon (me)—Well, apparently I don’t really know how to record live instruments. This is David singing and pla...
