I invited Dante to be a guest judge because he is from outside of our little circle of friends, and I enjoy his work on YouTube. You can find out more about Dante by visiting his YouTube Channel & he's also on Twitter.
Governing Dynamics - A- - I like prod, voice, and the chorus (lyrically) is universally applicable. Clever. Enjoyed.
Gold Lion - C - Song lacked creativity and solid rhythm. Loved voice.
Dr. Lindyke - B - Great piano work... voice... style is something I enjoy. Could have tightened up rhythm section entrance.
Alexa Polasky - A- - Great style, voice... etc.
The Offhand Band - B- - I appreciate what they're doing. Good organ work.
Matt Walton - C+ - Yea ukulele! Could have taken more time to tune it though. Rhythm goes off. Lyrics need a bit more creativity.
Brian Daniell - A- - This track is alive. I love live recordings. Is a happy song about death.
Byron Blocker & The Offbeats - A- - Great style, voice... etc.
Edric Haleen - A - Style makes me giggle, but what a stage voice. Lyrics and everything. wonderful.
Charlie McCarron - A - Great guitar work. Love lyrics and voice.
Spencer Sokol - B - He's gotta be more confident when he hits those notes. Music/lyrics could use more creativity.
Luke Brekke, Esquire - B - Made me chuckle.
"Buckethat" Bobby Matheson - B+ - I like the voice and style from the top. I like his perspective. :)
Alex Carpenter - B - HOLY MASTERING/COMPRESSION! Could use more guitars at second verse for this kind of production... and cymbals. Has a lot more potential for the kind of song it is. Needs more guitars.
Inverse T. Clown - B - Great voice/harmonies. Made me chuckle. I enjoy the ELO/Supertramp style.
Jutze - B+ - Clever. I enjoy the production.
Godz Poodlz - B - Good production/songwriting.
Tally Deushane - A- - I want to put her in my pocket. Enjoy voice and melody. I like the chorus a lot.
Ethan Ivey - B - Yea live piano! More confidence when singing!
Matt And Donna - B+ - This reminds me a bit of Ethan Ivey haha. "I kissed a drunk girl" Great production, voice(s).
Ross Durand - B+- Yeehaw! Great songwriting. Although I'd argue that heaven has taxes they're most likely paying a crew to keep it running and functional and beautiful. That money should come from the people who get to go. Sorry, Ross.
Menage a Tune - B- - Nice voice. Was a bit too "bad commercial" for me.
Glen Raphael - C+ - Cool production/arrangement. But a solid foundation of chord function was a little too slippery for me. The harmonies didn't solidify any chord ideas. Not very lyrical.
Doom SKITTLE - Not feeling it from the top.
Wait What - C+ - What's up karaoke? Makin me laugh. A little too self aware of the task at hand.
Steve Durand - B+ - I like style at top. I like the message. Well done.
Jason Morris - B - Whats up late 90s? Lighthouse, etc. Didn't seem to fit death motif though.
Caleb Hines - B - I laughed when chorus hit. Good chorus/lyrics/arrangement.
Bryce Jensen - C+ - Too self aware of task at hand.
Pat And Gweebol - A- - Like vocal stylings... and both voices.
Boffo Yux Dudes - B+ - I enjoy the style. Fuck'all!
Young Stroke aka Young Muscle - B- - my oh my mastering. Raps are a bit too statement like. Could use a more lyrical element. Still clever though.
Chris Cogott - A- - Enjoy this production/ chord progression/ etc. Well done.
Happi - B- - Very distinct guitar tone/mic placement. Gandalf! Interesting mesh of sounds. a little out of rhythm though.
Emperor Gum - B+ - Cool sounds. Harry Nilsson-esque. I enjoy.
Jon Eric - B+ - Cool song. Interesting take on task.
Hudson And Day - C+ - Room noises! (I love room noises). The arrangement idea is a bit scattered though. Didn't need as many voices as it has. Cluttered.
Mick Bordet - B - Interesting perspective on task. Death as the meat you're eating and being happy about it. Clever.
Noah McLauglin - B- - Rhythm is off at top. Did not appreciate rhythm change. Sucks that you're towards the end of a 45 song list.
David Ritter - B+ - Good song structure and arrangement. I enjoy.
Heather Miller - C - If you're gonna do a song like this you have to own it. And mean it. I don't believe a word you're saying.
Anna P - meh.
Donutworthy - C+ - Cool up until the vocals. Too much delay for me.
Green Mama Bathsalts - Too much chorus. Too much chorus. Cheesifies everything.
Common Lisp - Rhythms are off on snare. Bumming me out.
