Tough to vote on this one, I reckon it'll come down to which tune suits your tastes more than which one was the 'best' personal anthem? Because I get the distinct feel that all were persoinal anthems written in your favoured genre?
Hard work to go through 11 tunes though, hiesh! I tried to think of a way top seperate them into groups, but there wasn't much to easily make categories - maybe Rodney, Scotty, Stud and Stoffel could have been regarded as 'studio' entries with their polished entries - but that would have been spitting hairs though?
Overall, for me - Studmissile, Stoffeltoo (Buskers), Wern and Mijaelle's entries had a very personal feel. Perhaps it's the acoustic + vocals guitars that draws one in? Stud's was because I've heard many. many of his entries and they're 90% country, so if he didn't do a country tune it would have been super weird...
- @Stolleftoo (w/ Yeti & Guido)
Intro and key change remind me of Hotel California (big time!) and there's a bit of Chris Isaak in there too? All-in-all, best collaboration I've heard from GT'ers yet - nicely done gents!
- @Stoffeltoo (Buskers anthem)
Another very well put together track, you've nailed getting usable piezo sounds sitting in the mix - I thought all the instruments are really nicely staged and worked well together.
I'd say this is your best work yet? The afrikaans vocal just works, great feel and the lyrics are poignant (in a good way ). And the overall mix is just magic!
Great vocals, think we'll alllll agree! And so cool to have a feminine entry again, it's been soo long since the last one - hope there's more to come A little digital clipping on some of the louder parts of the vocals, but a great entry!
Dig itttttt! Sweet intro hook to get us into the song and keep us interested. Thought maybe the dbl kick in the chorus was a bit heavy, but that also maybe my sound system which is bass heavy. Absolutely a alternative!
Did I like it when the main riff kicked in - oh you know it! And intelligible vocals...yeah man! Some nicely 80's/90's riffage, bass line worked really well too - simple but drove the groove effortlessly! I'd have kept the solo going over the funky outro bit...
Best song title....I did chuckle more than little. Best vocal mix yet, though I thought the bassline (keyboards?) was a little odd for me - probably because it went a little lower than I'd expect a bass guitar could go - maybe I'd stick a bit of chorus/vibrato on the keys to give it a little less of a drone-y feel. Dug this one!
@klassvakie - Solid dude, super jammable 12bar groove - fills were cool and you kept it interesting with some rhythm changes and drum fills - not all of the them worked, but I dug it!
@Scottydog - Sheessh, great track. I really like the concept of sampling the toy - super cool little melody you worked into the tune - slick! And the mix is pretty darn epic, ready for radio!...showed the rest of us how to do it. I'm guessing you've worked on enough tunes to knock it out of the park with your first full length composition - take a bow!
@warrenpridgeon - Cool lyrics! Stick this one in the archives and work it into a full tune sometime - there's definitely some magic there. Gives me a kinda rocking punk (Tweak/Blink182/Goldfinger) vibes?
Mine: Well, let's just say I made some rather poor decisions late on Sunday (vocals & overall mix is FAR too loud). But I still dig the riff...all 52 bars of it (+/-28s)
So y'all take a bow - most entries I can recall - and, for me, everyone invested a little bit of themselves into each tune, which is a win all round.
