OK I'll bite. I didn't know this had been a meme, it's the first I've heard of it. I dig some of the orchestral backing, it reminded me of Gershwin. I'm sure the singer would be great doing a role in Wagner's Ring cycle, but really this is good for comic value and wouldn't go back to listen to it again, so I give it:

5/10

Here is some Miranda Sex Garden:

4/10

Idk that group and they probably have better songs but that particular song did very little for me. I found the pace and ambience of the song very bland, the song gets a little bit better when the heavy guitars come in but the vocals still sound like bland enlightened hums. It sounds like a bad metal band is playing at a monastery.

First of all, lol

And secondly, Ke$ha should do a collab with Head.

I get the feeling that I need to be in a red convertible driving through stretches of California roadways while listening to that song. <<--- I wrote that before I focused on the name of the song, "Nightmare at the Drag." Overall, it doesn't break any new ground to my ears, and it's probably been done better. 3/10.

The Silver Comet - "Lose Your Mind"


Spoiler for extra info:
These guys used to have a really cool video to this song. The music video was a collab they did with one of their friends. It seems like their label has stupidly removed it.

Video don't work at least for me and I cannot find an alternative on its own, found like a dude playing each part and then talking about it...that doesn't help me hear the song, so I shall throw this up incase its the same for everyone else.


I found this song when I was in the middle of doing my college video project and my friend made up his own parts into my video going "Oh I want this track for when I am on screen." then played that to me....I could not argue,

Very interesting....I have no words, 7/10 though? I am not sure. I do know I have listened to this three times.

Dude, thanks for posting this. I tried getting some more info on this band by checking a lot of The Silver Comet's social-media links, but many of them no longer work. That's never a good sign, so I have no idea if they're still together. But thank you for informing me that before all that went poof, you were able to see a music video for this song that had a guy getting chased out of his car by what later turned out to be a shadow of himself, and that of his bandmates. The video finished with the band playing on a rooftop.

Thank you for also informing me that the band's lead singer tried out for American Idol, at least from what you can remember they had written about themselves. Normally, that may not go over for me, but I like the band's spirit and energy in "Lose Your Mind." It's very melodic too, although perhaps a little overly so if I'm being honest. I dig the part where it pauses for a few seconds in the beginning, and I also like the bridge in the third half. That was unexpected. Both of those additions help keep the song from falling into the verse/chorus/verse pattern.

If I had to take off points, it's because I feel that it could have gone even harder than it does. Still, a nice effort from a band comprised of friends whose stated goal was to re-infuse rock music with some soul.

7/10.

Not gonna post a video. TheLhix's selection is up next.

I keep having to double check things whenever I hear Cradle of Filths name and go "uuuuh...is that not the band Ian Watkins was in....or was it puddle of mudd?....oh wait wikipedia tells me lost prophets its all safe."

On the actual song I have heard a number of times but never listened too which it still doesn't realy change my opinion of it which is its actualy a pretty decent song just not at all my style so 7/10

So since that was a "nymphetamine fix" how about a Caffeine Bomb!?

^^ Love the frenetic energy, and it definitely has a '90s style. At least based on the video, it would appear that the guy could skip a few caffeine bombs, instead of downing more. As an aside, it reminds me of another song that was done in similar fast-talking/lyrics, thrashing-guitar style from the '90s that was actually a big hit, although I can't place it. I know that doesn't help. I'm going to hang up a 6.5/10 on it.

After hearing this track a million times, I can confidently review it without repeat listens. It's sort of hard for me to say this, but Adele has taken a dip in quality. Her hits in previous years were just so much better. Hello has some dull, lifeless verses, juxtaposed against a pretty good chorus. But it's not enough to save the song, which shuffles along at an uncomfortably slow pace. This song could have greatly benefited from an upgrade in the tempo department. So, given the chorus isn't as bad, 6/10.

Here's my next one:
