Re: Let me twist your arm to write (Bend The Knee Reviews)

Yeah, really appreciate the detailed reviews, Leaf! I do a lot of in-car listening as well and it can really make a difference to hear the songs on headphones / decent speakers too.

Vom I can't believe you never listened to the rest of that song!

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Vowl Sounds - Haha. Haven't heard that Robyn Hitchcock song in a really long time. Your voice sounds a little Sandy Denny-ish on this one. Or maybe a slightly less edgy Joni Mitchell. I like that the sample is built into the song (as I said earlier to someone). That's the best way to do this, I thi...

Re: Do we have a chance? (Hope Against Hope prefight)

Whoa, not one? I was hoping to transform another one of the Vowl Sounds cast-off ideas for Color Me into a song for this, but I should probably focus on the next round instead...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Since it probably won't be obvious from listening to the song, I think it's important that I note here that I mixed and submitted our song while wearing this t-shirt.

Color Me In - Vom Vorton (Ohne Ruhm) Feat. The Dells, from the song "I Can Sing a Rainbow / Love is Blue". Another day at the office Another humdrum day of life Another "how are your kids, Susan?"

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Thanks for the kind words, New Uglies! In terms of the Vowl Sounds process, the way it usually works is that I'll create a basic track and send it to owl, who will write some lyrics (and ask for any structural changes if required, e.g. this song was originally under two and a half minutes long becau...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

I'm curious to know who your original target was... although I guess if they weren't up for a dissing then you probably can't reveal that either! But I guess you'll have twice as many reasons to diss them now ;)

Re: Most anticipated albums of 2018?

My most anticipated album of 2017 was 'Matchy Matchy' by The Ballet, which didn't end up coming out in 2017, so I guess I'll roll that one over to this year! Hopefully it's just delayed rather than cancelled, they don't have much of a social media presence so it's hard to know... Their last album, ...

For the record I think all the judges are doing a great job and I love the transparency and having a bunch of useful feedback.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

re: vowl's comment on judging: I absolutely think judging would be difficult. You're not just assigning a grade to each song, you're ranking them. So if you find 10 songs fairly comparable you have to decide who will get 10 more points than the other one (and everyone in between). At that point it ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Yeah, it looks like Glenn worked hard on his spreadsheet
In the cells he excels - but elsewhere he's a deadbeat
Fourteen years and he's never had immunity?
I guess the previous judges applied a little more scrutiny.

Re: Let me twist your arm to write (Bend The Knee Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - already commented on this one when it was called 'Shock Value'. The 'Bend the Knee' bit is probably actually my favourite part of the song? But I still think that the attempt to fit both challenges hurts the song on the whole. Budget Bears - another sloppy punk song from me....

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Congrats Agony Sauce! You brought the disses and won our hearts.

Stunned by the eliminations this round but as per my reviews I thought pretty much everything was great this week so that may have been the case regardless of who ended up at the bottom of the list!

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

I've heard that "another think coming" thing before and it does make logical sense but I can't fully get behind it until ALL you Americans agree to drop "I could care less" in favour of the vastly more sensible British "I couldn't care less". We can make a change, people!

So happy to have had a Really Good Time with this set of songs after the previous round wound me up for some reason.

A couple of clarification requests, if I may? * Are we supposed to replace the blank in the title with something of our own choosing?
