We've been hard at work on this for the past few months, and now it's finally done! A big thanks to all the contributors and to Lord-O-Donuts for the rad album artwork. If you missed participating in this, we'll probably start this up again early next year, so keep an eye out for that.

Sticky please, mods?

Official Track By Track Review via me:

1. ****ing awesome start to this album. Great vocals and production. I like the feeling the song puts out. And the lyrics made me lol in the middle.

2. Reminds me of something Frusciante would do on one of his post drug/pre-electro solo projects. Another solid track. I love the chord progression. Mandolin (?) solos were A+. What's the instrument at 3:30? I like it. Excellent vocal range, btw.

3. Love the chords. Good change of pace in the layout of the album. Very nice track.

4. Very pretty. I wish I could wrote something like this!

5. The emotions this speaks speak to me lol. I feel like I know what it's about in spite of the lack of lyrics. I can hear all sorts of vocal melodies in my head. Very nice!

6. This reminds me of The Smashing Pumpkins for some reason. Except I like your voice more than Corgan's. I like the juxtaposition between the verses and chorus.

7. This is different. But I love it. What is the percussion used in this? It sounds almost electronic. This track is one of the standouts to me so far.

8. What a great voice!!! Very seasoned and professional sounding. My track has to follow this?!?! I'm ****ed another standout track IMO.

9. -not rating my own track-

10. Dat droptuning. What is it? Also, the slide effects are cool. My dog was very interested in them too

11. Ooh. Piano. Welcome addition to the album. And the cello (?) is haunting. This sounds like a movie score or a ballet piece. Love it. And the full string section is wonderful. I like this one a lot too

12. I like the guitar part and tone in this. It's a bit depressing, but looking out my window, the depressive mood kinda fits.

13. Reminds me of something off of Zeppelin III, which is a good thing IMO. Kickass riff at 1:40ish. Could easily be an electric song. I like it.

14. Trippy. Like walking down dusty roads on an acid trip. Not sure if that's what you're going for, but that's what I got.

15. Nice voice. One of the better ones on the album imo. Very professional sounding production too.

16. Good job bacon!


I feel like this is a stronger album than #1. I also feel like I totally didn't step up to the plate. I'm determined for album 3 now

Thanks, man! The mandolin instrument is a xiaoruan and the instrument at 3:30 is a dizi.



Listening through the album now. Will post some thoughts when I finish.





Edit: All really solid efforts, lads. My favorite tracks are dusty roads and simple things.

Some very solid tracks on here.

I'm particularly fond of War Story, Gerald the Engraviour, Smile, Simple Things, I Will Follow You. There's something I like about all of the tracks, though. Really obviously eclectic influences here.

They're all great efforts though. I honestly had lower expectations for this whole thing haha, very happily surprised.

Good job everyone!

Hey, I like Jon777. Probably because it's the LoK avatar, but it might be because I've seen him around, so I'll listen to it. Solely because Jon777 was the OP.

1. TV-Casualty - Water World - lel, hard to take seriously, but still gud.
2. StewieSwan - A War Story - trying to hard
3. Saints of Nowhere (Cameron Johnson) - Let It Go - IDK, just not too good
4. Dreadnought - Autumn Eyes- MOD = AWESOMEPOST (Sorry, No objectivity = No Opinion) All I can say is work on recording because du-du-deewewghewvjfwehkqfwejhvfrqjkw-du-du-du-du is kinda off-putting.
5. Reverie - In A Year - Very nicely done! Wow, that was really good dude!
6. chev311e - One Lonely Ride - That was very well done, dude. I liked it
7. Gabriel Graves - Smile - Not my thing
8. Chasing Echoes - I Will Follow You - Voice is too week, sorry
9. SGstriker - All Must End - With better recording this would be a hit (nice job). Classic guitar solo kinda ruind it though. I think it needs a heavy distorted guitar solo with the same notes/phrasing and shit. But this was really good. Like super good, except the recording.
10. Mr Tumnus - Gerald the Engraviour - interesting but boring at the same time?
11. Stephen Afflitto - Simple Things - Very niecly done
12. Elephants Over Oceans - Freeze Frame - A part of me wanted to get into it, but I just couldn't.
13. Harrison Bellamy (mind_meld) - Mallee - I really like this song. But might want to break up the bass strokes with a few midtone strokes.
14. Space Cowboys - Dusty Roads - Skipped ahead and then skipped back but then skippen back and it still sounded the same.
15. CaptainO - Encounters With Anyone - leaves me wondering and and that isn't a good thing.
16. ehbacon ft. SGstriker - APileofDeadCocks - Can't really judge a mod, even though he's writing a song based on a former member. Sorry. - Listened and 0/10 you fail and you suck at writing music.


FINALE = 5,6,9,11

Excellent work guys, can't wait to see you all next year Three cheers to our hard-ass project leader Jon777 for whipping us all into shape for this!

Backstory of my track (Dusty Roads) for anyone interested: I was putting mad feels into mine, I recorded it a few days after breaking it off with my fwb :'( It's a musical analogy for what it's like to go through some time with no one to suck your dick; bland, repetitive and fulll of sadness. Liek if u cri evry tiem

Nice, will download and listen later. I know a couple of these songs already from the songwriting game and they're cool, so yeah, looking forward to the rest. Also Jon, maybe you could edit a thingy into the OP explaining who's who.

Damn, this is an awesome compilation! Awesome contributions.

Makes me realize how talented everyone is and how much I suck at singing...whatever, I'll work that much harder to improve it. Props to Jon777 for making it flow as well as it does.
