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

Reviews, generally split between people who like the intro more and people who like the song bit more. I appreciate the feedback, all! This song was a fun one to come up with and develop, particularly the intro layers. Truth came up with the idea and the haunting verse melody/chord, and i did the l...

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

Song fight Try Me No particular order! Hot pink halo I like the overall effect, including the typewriter. My favorite thing about this song it the layered vocals. Like I mentioned earlier, I am a sucker for close female harmonies. The way they build gives the song a wonderful swell. The vocal produc...

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

As an aside, I'm enjoying how much detail there is in these reviews about people's cats' reactions to the Mandibles song. I haven't played it for my cat yet, but I'll try it later and see what she thinks. I had been thinking the same thing. I actually hadn’t played it for my cats (forgot to do the ...

Re: Lyric craft

I dunno, man, it just seemed to me the moment I listened to his song that the lyrics had been well crafted. I thought they were funny, lyrical, and perfect for the piece he was writing. I think it’s hard to say, “upon listening to this, it’s clear you made no effort!” We don’t know how hard he worke...

Re: Lyric craft

I’m going to just chime in here and say that 1. I am a stickler for lyric craft, I agonize over and rhyme scheme, and I think it’s an important part of any song. 2. That said, I feel that it is important to realize that music allows the poetry set to it to explore more complex and mixed meters. We d...

Re: Go ahead (Try Me prefight)

Emerging from our hibernation, Mandibles are in! If it's not too late, that is. It's likely our ASMR is not "real," but I have fun mixing it together. Close female harmonies always give me chills, so it's ASMR to me!

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Supplemental Reviews: Iveg: This is charming! I don't hate the vocal effects, but I think the issue is that the instrumentals stay the same in both sections. If the orchestration had shifted at least a little so as the timbre of the instruments matched the vocals, it would have worked better, I thin...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Thanks for the podcast, guys!

Iveg, I’m sorry, until the podcast, I thought your song was actually just the rock roll! I’ll get you a real review in the near future. Same for the Kraken lives! I don’t know how I missed it!

I've had a terrible sinus infection, so I've been holding off until that blows over. I apologize for the delay.

Nur ein xiv 7 The Mandibles vote went 3-1 for Agony Sauce. Both of the finals songs were really fantastic, so it could have gone either way. Congrats, Vowl Sounds! Agony: the guitar work is incredible. That intro had me hooked into it from the start. I love how it winds throughout the song tying it ...

PS- if y'all are wondering what happened to Brookes and I doing reviewing, there is a reason. No, it's not because we got married. That just coincidentally happened during the competition.

Finally got around to finishing my reviews! Enjoy. Nur ein xiv 6 Agony: I really like the tempo change ups in this song. They probably have something to do with the songs that you used for source material, but I don’t think I’ve ever listened to wonderwall, so I’m judging this song based purely on i...
