Aight let's do this!dark side of the son:
I like the cigarette pack guitar amp tone off the top. Off we go into Grateful Dead land... not a bad comparison either. Some tuning issues in there...not sure where. For my money, the lowest voice is unnecessary, feels like it weakens the melody, and all the voices together, being not exactly together in cadence makes for a tough intelligibility score. I like the vibe overall though and I like the guitar hook/lead - don't hear that much these days. I wish for a clearer, tighter recording of everything but I can dig the song writing.wreckdom
: is this the most structured wreckdom song ever? nice. I can totally get behind sub 2 minutes songs of any kind. Leave 'em wanting more. Or something. I love the warbly-ass chaos beam that slides around the backing tracks from start to finish. Nice touch.lookout joe
: the spacey synth run down at the end of the intro was a nice touch. Sorry the first intro..we're 40s in and you're losing me with the second intro/beat variation... I like what you're trying to do with the vox/melody but it's not hitting. Adding more voices that aren't on pitch doesn't make it better ...just sayin'. Dig when the ripping guitar busts in though! the mumbled vox is a wet blanket. Some mic technique, judicious eq, compression might help the clarity some. Unless you did all of that.
Shout out for the gamma ray sound fx, I feel you.it damn near killed em
gonna go ahead and assume this wreckdom's alter ego (which is funny). i'll admit the opening salvo "my man's excited for 12" grabbed me. But it was the spinal tap schtik so, no. aaaand this track is like having a sleepover in wreckdom's toy room. 2 minutes of freeform... meh. not sure this needed to be in this fight. just saying.vom vorton
those are some sizzlin' mf'n cymbals! I like that guitarpeggio. not a fan of the pitchy vox, no disprespect intended.. it seems unconvincing to me - like mean it! maybe it's exactly what you were going for? i long for music tracks that aren't tentative feeling. I don't dislike this song at all... the haunting pad-synth floating around the stereo field is cool... it all fits nicely. moody track - best so far in the listens.starfinger
I remember this name from some time ago so I'm expecting big things! Vox a little shakey off the top... flute comes in and I'm all what the... and then Starfinger nails it. That double tracked, echoy "heeeeeeaaad" with the glidey synth behind it - GOLD. I'm not a huge fan of the verse section, but that is more than compensated for by the great change to the chorus, the effing flutes and cool glide synth. oh oh ... we're into the talking scifi bridge jam out.... 2 points for cool gamma ray sounds. -2 points for dialogue - not a fan. although +1 point because it made laugh... "it's okay FULL POWER". Not buying the return to "shoot at his head" but that's execution more than anything - great idea. This one is now best so far in the listens. Cool.Berkely Social Scene
I dig the full bandness of BSS. Not buying the change from chorus to verse though. The harmonies aren't tight like I want 'em. playing is all tight though, as you'd expect. Bridge feels tacked on, but second guitar saves it... solo works. Enjoyable listen. Ok - I dig the chorus to the verse pattern transition better now that I've heard it a few times. Hmm... Is this better than Starfinger? I think so. Starfinger had more candy (and I like candy), but this is a better song. Tough one.Galaxy5
Unexpected results from a weekend jam with a bunch of musicians who'd never played together before. Banjo. Mf'n BANJO. Kind of seals it, right?
Good times recording all day, glad we were able to enter SF! Wasn't really the plan but the timing worked out. Will we be back? Hope so - but some of the guys have a hard time with communication so who knows.
