Re: Walrein's Walrus mk. II - REVEAL

Love to open POG for the first time in 4 months and see a Walrus thread on the front page. Even better to see Bloo losing playing

How to not do well with me: nine minutes of KorN. Or any KorN, tbh. This is... not good.

Tanya Tagaq - The Summoning

Quote:
This does nothing for 7 minutes and then gets REALLY weird for 2 and I'm not a fan. You got an extra point for not submitting KorN, though.

GothicDolls - Mermaid's Scar

Quote:
This would just be fairly mediocre without the vocals. The vocals are pretty bad. Honestly, though, this could be a lot worse. I'm almost disappointed, tbh.

Death Grips - Get Got

Quote:
Not my style of rap, and the backing track is both incessant and obnoxious. I know I'm hard on rap, but this misses even harder than the rest.

Xiu Xiu - Guantanamo Canto

Quote:
Well, it's certainly creepy. That's about the only positive thing I can say about it. In no way is this pleasant to listen to. There's no cohesion to the track at all.

R. Kelly - I Wish

Quote:
This song sounds like piss.

Nah, it could be worse, but it's incredibly mediocre RnB. Generic beat, generic vocals, with a veneer of trying too hard overlaid on top. lolette

Pain of Salvation - Used

Quote:
Cool drum intro and then it goes real downhill real fast. Random noise over the verse + random low pitched whispering vocals is not really my thing. Mediocre edgy nu metal.

Marilyn Manson - Tourniquet

Quote:
Hard pass on Manson's vocals. Not my thing. Backing instrumental isn't too bad and saves you from being lower. Super edgy, though. Not that this is surprising.

Silver Edge - Addicted

Quote:
This is way too generic middle school for me. Sounds like every other Breaking Benjamin knockoff that showed up in the mid-00s. Unmemorable in every way.

Never heard what was after the first 5 seconds.

KAMELOT - Liar Liar ft. Alissa White-Gluz

Quote:
Generic power metal, and not in a good way. Male vocalist is unremarkable, solos are unmemorable, and everything else is pretty obnoxious. The female vocals bring it back a little.

Within Temptation - Murder

Didn't click with me for some reason. In a vacuum this song seems like I'd like it more, but it just didn't to it for me. Could be overproduced, idk.

Dan Deacon - When I Was Done Dying

Quote:
Didn't like this at all at first, then it grew on me. It's really ****ing weird, but it's not necessarily bad. Kinda chill in an odd sort of way, but too discordant and wall-of-soundy for me to really get into it.

The Hives - A Stroll Through Hive Manor Corridors

Quote:
A good song if it actually goes anywhere. As it is, it's pleasant enough, but honestly is barely a song. This is also VERY un-Hives, I'm surprised.

Sufjan Stevens - John Wayne Gacy, Jr.

Quote:
Unfortunately, I'm not really a big fan of Sufjan. His voice is almost trying too hard to be soft or gentle or whatever, IMO. The backing track is just sort of generically "nice". Made it this high off the strength of interesting subject material.

Tom Lehrer - Poisoning Pigeons in the Park

Quote:
Nice meme. A bit more my speed than the vaudeville submission, and a lot more legitimately funny, but overall not a song that really sticks in my mind.

The Felice Brothers - Fire at the Pageant

Quote:
Weird one. Didn't expect to like this as much as I did, especially given my normal reactions to country. Some of the more discordant parts of the choruses turned me off, but the verses were pretty damn good.

Siouxsie and the Banshees - My Girl

Quote:
Kinda falls into a rut, but for the most part is pretty cool. Not as cool as the band's name, though, because that's pretty ****ing cool.

This scores much lower if I don't like her voice so much. It's pretty boring otherwise. You got lucky, punk.

Depeche Mode - Precious

Quote:
Depeche Mode is a band that walks a fine line between introspective and just uninteresting. This one toes it pretty close, but I think ultimately stays on the correct side of that line. Not the greatest, but not bad.
