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

Glad you caught the Mother's Day thing! I thought that was a fun coincidence as well. And you're the first review I've seen that mentions the awkward prosody, so now it can be told: We were REALLY crunched on time (partly due to aforementioned Mom's Day), and had NO lyrics (just a handful of "Yo Ma...

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

Boffo Yux Dudes Summary: Solid entry that doesn't know how serious it wants to be. Challenge: I get a sense that you tend to hide behind the campy aspect of your music. I'd like to hear a genuine, 100% serious effort. What does Boffo Yux feels? What does it sound like when Boffo Yux cries? Tom and ...

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

Boffo Yux Dudes: One of the songs that actually captured the spirit of the challenge, I thought--I was really pretty entertained and pleased that you decided to go with this theme, particularly for a song due on Mother's Day. The music was poppy and fun to listen to, although it got too repetitive ...

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

Owl, not to pile on your observation here, but thank you, Glenny, for bringing that to light! I'm not kidding, that think/thing...er, thing has bothered me for DECADES (ever since the JP song, truth be told)!

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! I'm down with that, you're...

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 One "Shock Value"

Boffo Yux Dudes I swear I don’t understand why people would Yoda the first line of a song. (unless it’s a Weird Al Star Wars parody) Just use your best Yoda voice, and read your first line. Don’t set the tone of your song that way. It’s more annoying when the song overall isn’t bad. Interesting sto...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

BYD - This is very cool. I really enjoy the chorus. This is another one where I think the challenge hurt the song. I have to turn up the volume to hear the verses right. Is this the heaviest thing you guys have ever done? Holy shit! Reviews already...color me impressed! Thanks for the good words. Y...

Right let's get these posted so I can get on with my life. Boffo Yux Dudes - this is ridiculously catchy and fun, and I fell in love with it even without having any clue what you were singing about (I have now done my Wikipedia research). I really wish the mix was better though, it's so kinda muffl...

Instead of writing reviews for the songs this round, Ryan and I thought we'd record some random mouth sounds and share them with you. [*]00:15:32 - Boffo Yux Dudes Nur Ein!

BYD - Also Someone thinks they’re in the Doors but hasn’t told everyone else. This is incorrect. We're all too aware in BYD that the keyboardist thinks he's in The Doors. You should tell him to stop it then :) No, then he'll just go back to thinking he's in Styx, so we opted for the lesser of two e...

Pop Machine - I like the music here, but it's a bit stiff. Confused by the Brie business, but like that the song gets a little kooky. Thanks for the comments, Senor Del Stinko.
