Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

In 7th,

Nego submits Stop Making Speeches by Khoma

Score: 7.8

Quote:
Really like the instrumental. Vocals are great during the verses, but less so during the chorus for me. I guess they get drowned out more then since everything else gets louder - and I like that it gets louder but I guess it comes at a slight cost.

In 6th,

KarmaDope submits Sound of Silence by Disturbed

Score: 7.9

Quote:
I will give credit here. I do not care for Disturbed but this is a well done cover. And I'm pretty surprised their singer is capable of this sort of vocal performance. Pretty good.

In 5th,

soah submits My Requiem by Trees of Eternity

Score: 8.0

Quote:
I don't have much to say here other than the singer did well in the delivery of sad + haunting vocals. I especially liked the quieter parts of the song.

In 4th,

Gadarene's GF submits Breaking The Law by Emeli Sandé

Score: 8.1

Quote:
Obviously the vocals are great. The lyrics are sweet and the guitar is soothing. Nothing is exactly outstanding, but overall it's a nice song.

In 20th,

NeedMoreManasi submits Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart by Chris Cornell

Score: 5.5

RIP. The guy knew how to sing well and with passion as heard here, but this is just one of those songs where you can't really remember anything notable once it's over.

In 3rd,

xander biscuits submits Don't Kill My Vibe by Sigrid (alternate link)

Score: 8.4

Quote:
The girl knows how to sing and I love when the rasp in her voice shows up. I'm also a fan of the spunky parts of the song despite it being a slower tempo.

In 21st,

Xicor submits Breathing Me In by Koven

Score: 5.0

Quote:
For me, this has a totally generic sound to it (especially the vocals) that I can't shake off no matter how many times I listen to it. So it's not good... not bad either... just totally average.

In 2nd,

Adam submits The Highwayman by Phil Ochs

Score: 9.0

Quote:
-swoon- Can't say enough nice things about this guy's voice. It's probably most pleasant one to listen out of everything submitted. For a while I wasn't even paying attention to what he was singing about - just wanted to enjoy the voice.

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

In 22nd,

4maskwolf submits Shatter Me by Lindsey Sterling

Score: 4.0

Quote:
I don't think I've ever come across a Lindsey Sterling song I care for and this isn't much different. Maybe I don't like my violins to be so flashy. Anyway, I feel like the featured vocals here don't really offer anything to make the song better. It feels too much like the vocals were slapped on there after the rest of the song was completed - which could potentially have been the case because violin comes first here and all - but you don't want to make it sound super apparent.

Score: 9.3

A simple song totally carried by the vocals. Exactly what I was looking for. I only wish the vocals took less breaks during the song because I would have liked to hear more.

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

Will try to do reveals earlier in the day next time. Today was not a so great day for that.

Will aim for a Monday reveal for next category.

My commentary probably sucks but I was never good at explaining things. Just go look at my ww games!

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

very happy with 3rd place. #1 song is great, worthy winner.

#2 video isn't available for me, but I'll check out another version some time.

Love the final 6 being the podium + anti podium

Same version, different link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qdlga3QLBvg // This song has some recordings I'm not a big fan of. Hope that video works for you. Lower quality, but it's not as bad as I remembered.

Won't be able to listen to stuff for a hot minute here. Hyped to be off to a better than expected start

Roman, in case you're ever looking for more by Phil Ochs, half of There But for Fortune is on my playlist, and When I'm Gone specifically is pretty special IMO
