Song Fight Review: Ruthless Lately

Yeah…so I got WAY behind with my reviews. I know my reviews suck, but I’m going to get caught up…so lets get started…

The last challenge I reviewed over at Song Fight was titled "Under Over", and my favorite entry was from Ross Durand. Ross finished in the middle of the pack, and PiGPEN got the win. A new batch of songs can be found over at Song Fight, so I suggest you go pick your favorite songs for the current round.

My favorites from the fight Ruthless Lately are posted below.

Would Have Voted For:
(Right Click "Save As" on the artist's name for a MP3 of their entry.)

Yardley Social Scene - Dang, great way to cap off a pretty good fight. Totally earned the victory. Clean, catchy & interesting sound. (use the lyrics forum)

BLT and the Psychotics - Aside from a couple lines I really dug this. Yall sound great together, my only real complaint is that it sounded like the 2nd line of the first chorus was flubbed? Of course I was listening on my shit headphones & not my good ones…so maybe I just misheard it…like 5 times.

King Arthur - Fun story & the music kept me entertained while you told it. Nothing bad to say…and that’s the norm in regards to your work.

(Head over to Song Fight to listen to these songs.)

Berkeley Social Scene - This is odd. I mean the music is ok…I like the lyrics, but they don’t mesh for me. The lyrics remind me of something you might hear in a Rocky film or as Hulk Hogan walks to the ring, but the music is too laid back.

Canonical Man - Didn’t find the lyrics all that creative…but I didn’t HATE it.

EggNogAdam - Keeping it simple isn’t a bad idea since the vocal performance was pretty good, but the piano got annoying…and it’s not a long song. (use the lyric forum)

illscreen - I understand that a lot of rap is about boasting, and I’m cool with that. But if you’re going to boast you better be good. I’ve heard worse…but that’s nothing to boast about. I’d like to hear you enter more fights…but with rap I really want more creative lyrics.

Kapitano - That long intro could put someone to sleep. The lyrics weren’t all that easy to make out, and whatever effect you used on them didn’t do anything for me. I don’t care what genre of music I’m listening to, I never want to strain to make out what someone is saying.

Larry - I see that you had 0 votes this fight. Consider yourself lucky it wasn’t lower.

MC Who Izzy - What the hell? I was expecting a rap…change your name.

noah mclaughlin - Not really sure what it’s about, and your link in the lyric forum didn’t work. I’m WAAAAAY to lazy to put any more effort into research.

Paco del Stinko - The music was pretty cool, but the lyrics just weren’t that interesting. I normally like your lyrics, so I was a bit surprised.

Scott Gesser - Didn’t like the vocals, and they were muffled at times. I think there’s some good stuff here, but the vocals hurt it a lot. (use the lyrics forum)

Steve Durand - The opening reminded me of an old music video I saw on the Disney channel as a kid. Can’t remember the song name…just that it was about haircuts. Anyways…it was a fun song…even though it annoyed me at first cause I couldn’t find the song it reminded me off. (use the lyrics forum)
