Comments: 1:10 -2:06 is a glorious minute in this song. The way it's effortlessly builds into looping expands upon the experience of this song's atmosphere creates a banger I could use for work. I would actually rate this higher but I heard vocals, but couldn't discern any words, so the song gets a pass from the point docking.
Comments: A solid remix of Lost Woods where dubstep clicked Wubba Lubba Dub Dub and refused to turn around. It's a nostalgic trip back to the youth that brings a smile to your face. Unfortunately, it has words. Points off for telling me to shut the fuck up.
Comments: yo rave party at gimm1ck's house TONIGHT BOYS! This fucking slaps like no question about it. At first the intro gave me huge homestuck feels but once the beat fucking dropped it did NOT dissapoint. This had me bouncing fam. I would pound shots to this song and go fuckin crazy on top a piano somewhere.
Comments: WHY IS THERE A GODDAMN WORD IN MY WORDLESS WONDER. HUH SKY? I AM HEARING HEY EVERY 4 BARS OR SOME SHIT AND IT'S DRIVING ME UP THE WALL BECAUSE IT'S REALLY ANNOYING OUTSIDE OF ACTUALLY BREAKING THIS CAT. OH AND THERE'S A 1, 2, 3, 4 IN THIS TRACK THAT IS FIVE WORDS I'M HEARING THAT I SHOULD NOT BE. WTF BRO.
Outside of that, this track does feel very bland though. After the 1,2,3,4 transistion I do like the song, but the first half rlly is hella meh and I don't think it's enough to save it. Props for the abuse of the child saying hey to trigger my camp counselor instinct but, the vibe this song gives me is... like... ur 3 yr old nephew/ niece's birthday party. I don't like that bro. 5.4 / 10 (points docked for words)
With a loud start that fades into a more quiet, introspective atmosphere - this song has continuous build ups into a very mechanical, boisterous chorus, with these introspective verses providing a good break away from the dubstep craziness - all the while each note seems to have a slight ratchet to them that keeps everything tonally together. Really, it throws so much at you it can seem like a bit much at times, but on relistens it blends together nicely. As one of the top 4 tm, this and second place were the two songs I found myself gravitating towards the most.
Momments: Didn't feel the energy. Spanish wasn't fluent, if you take a listen to Taki Taki and compare Cardi B's spanish vs. Selena's Spanish you'll notice selena's spanish is noticeably weaker, and in this song it shows
Comments: So when people say Joanne came from nowhere I'm linking this song at them lmao. This song gives us the relationship ending conversation, a tactical nuke of a monologue towards Ms. Gaga's father(, I'm told.) The lyrics are incredibly punchy, and seem like the end of long years of the same treatment that Lady GaGa has gotten incredibly tired of. Something about how he gave up on life and now she's giving up on him. I wish she shared more of the context honestly, but this does fit the category.
JID is a hella good artist. Despite the lyrics from JID being wildly repetitive (for effect I hope , the real stellar point of this song is the girl (mereda? I think that's her?) coming in with her verse and quite literally shutting down JID's bullshit throughout this entire song. Like
"And since I'm trying to tell the truth, it's all bad
And since you're looking for the proof, it's all there
Come on, baby, I'ma tell the truth and nothing but the truth
You can't handle the truth, you can't handle it"
Incredible. This man has some fucking GALL for that.
The outro a lil weird, but it cleans it up nicely for a stellar last word from the other side.
Mr. Ocean comes back fantasizing about someone who's moved on, wanting them to "Keep a place for me" and how he'll "sleep between y'all". He's so starved for this person he's willing to let go of his self control for it. Nails the vibe head on.
A spunky Pop Punk track about a control freak of a boyfriend, Hayley Williams sings about how she's breaking under the pressure of having her significant other try and change her so much. With lines talking about having ideas crammed down her throat and how she's ready to break the finger being pointed at her, it's extremely clear that this song is about a relationship on it's last legs.
Comments: I believe this one goes into the rare territory of a friend lost. Someone they keep distant but protect because really, they aren't that bad, right? They haven't done anything wrong to you, so u gotta calm down man. It's the painful sigh at the end of an arduous relationship, where you're too nice to figure out the problems with the person you're talking to
