Re: Time to post some (inter)stellar (The Thirteenth Moon Reviews)

So these reviews are kind of high level and off the cuff. If you didn't post your lyrics I didn't comment on them. If you particularly want me to be more critical and dig in a bit on your song, PM me. BSS - California feel off the bat. Not sure how to quantify that or why it made me think of Sugar R...

Re: It's on the calendar (The Thirteenth Moon prefight)

Barring some unforeseen disaster, I'll be in with something somewhat more arranged (and less meta) than last time.

edit: Submitted!!!!
Incidentally I think it's singularly awesome that the two first entries on the lyrics page appear to be a vampire song and a werewolf song respectively.

Re: Tasting the (The Sugary Goo Inside reviews)

So I was active on Songfight on and off between 2010 and 2013 posting mostly as "Nobody, et al." It's nice to be back. I've tried a couple times to get back into it and failed miserably. But this time for reals, you guys. Also nice to see some familiar names again. BSS - you guys still managed to ha...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round One

YKFD couldn't make it happen this week.
Y'all would have gotten a traditional celtic-style waltz tune with mandolin and melodica, but [insert lengthy lame excuses here] and no dice.

Re: Commit your tune to Sacrifice! (C&S review thread)

For what it's worth, I feel like my arrangement and songwriting skills have gotten better as I try to write more detailed reviews. Hence when I review your song I do it as much for me as for you. :-) Actually, I sort of wish people would be a little more critical with their reviews. Most of you guys...

Re: I'm so HAPPY to start this thread (Happy to Be Here Revi

Berkeley Social Scene [/url] The guitar has kind of a 60s garage-rock feel. Which is true of a lot of your stuff. Damn but you guys are prolific. Chorus hits a Guster vibe, which I dig. The lyrics don't particularly grab me, but love makes life worthwhile. I can sign on to that idea. Billy and the ...
