Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

Sunday Colors: Did anyone catch that your song is about a failed suicide attempt, and the aftermath of living with the visible gunshot wound to the head/ [face?]? I think they missed it. I didn't mind that most people missed it, but I was excited to read your post all the same! I imagined my song a...

The New Ugly for this round is live Special thanks to Scott (Lucky Spoon) for subbing in for Ben. These are the approximate times. I apologize for being so LOW ENERGY. As you can imagine, I'm tired and grumpy and don't have much but praise at this point. :) Scott had plenty of interesting things to...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

It's probably for the best that I'm last in line - the mixing is not done properly, and my song is very quiet. My apologies in advance.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

Just about the nicest thing anyone has written about my music. Truly honored to have made you cry, and perhaps even moreso that you liked it before you understood the lyrics. You two always have really positive things to say, I appreciate it. The line about the given name is really important to me....

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

Agony Sauce - Would dance to in a club. The "I do this to remember" is really catchy, and in general the chorus is so good. I'm not a huge fan of that "sing in line with the drum beat" style, but it's a good song Berkeley Social Scene - I really love that "yuddayuddayudda" chiptune sound, the one th...

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

The Sunday Colors - The new mic sounds great! Big improvement in sound quality, great job Christopher! As usual, lyrics and performance are fabulous. I especially like “You flashed your half-moon smile when I stepped off the plane”. And then the chorus hits, and the sample. Ha! This cracked me up. ...

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

Sunday Colors- Your voice is wonderful. There’s something very Dylan about this song. Great words, frantic strumming. Reminds me of Richie Havens singing a Dylan song. I’m wishing for more instrumentation. One lyrical thing that irks me (I’m sorry, I’m the son of an English teacher) Now you think t...

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

I once watched a cooking show where during the dessert portion one of the judges took a taste-test and then said, "oh, if I were a fan of chocolate I'd love this." To which I thought; if you're not a fan of chocolate, what are you doing judging desserts?? This is to say that I'd held off on critiqui...

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

This song is really hard. None of the Mandibles like to be mean, and we’re really bad at it... "Someone or something", the challenge says. So you can write a diss track about broccoli or whatever, unless you don't want to be mean to broccoli. I'll weigh in here and say that if someone writes a diss...
