Songs About Teeth
"The Spine Song"
cute song, lyrics were interesting. why do you guys keep rec'ing me shit with string sections tho? haven't I said enough times that I don't like stuff like that at all lol? either way, her voice was nice and I got the words stuck in my head. 3.0/5.0

"Run Away With Me"
i haven't really known until now if the love for this album was a meme, but I gotta say this was pretty catchy. wasn't anything special at all tho, the vocal melody was pretty mid-tier as far as 00's pop music goes and the instrumental was just some four to the floor 80's worship that doesn't fully commit. easy 2.50/5.0
A Fever Dream
i'm not really into this guy's voice. the music itself was cool tho. sounded like some car commerical music tho. idk, i don't really have much to say. was essentially all chorus and it got a little old, but it was a little unique I guess with the dudes vocal style. 2.75/5.0
best song so far. instrumentals were cool, both vocalists were great. kinda sounded like twitch-streamer music tbh but it was still really fun. will maybe peep the rest of this. 3.4/5.0
oh man, this was awesome. loved the vocal melodies, harmonies were great. instrumentation was pretty interesting and novel. this had a lot of what I like about britpop in it. just a great song overall. 4.0/5.0
instruments were pretty good, some funky synthy shit, not into the vocals at all. just sounded like end credit music for an anime. wish I liked this more. 2.60/5.0

"Never Let You Go"
i mean, everyone has heard this song. I probably should've told you to pick something else, but I didn't know the title or that i had heard this before until I turned it on. really really super mediocre song tho, not nearly as good as anything on their s/t record. 2.5/5.0 -ELIMINATED-
You Will Never Know Why
some of the instrumentals were cool -- but again -- this wasn't really any thing that special to me. had to start it over because i realized at the end that i kinda didn't even remember what I just heard. it was nice, but pretty boring. 2.75/5.0

"Ice to Never"
okay, here we fucking go. sounded like some 80's synthpop, only it has Guy from D.E.P. on vocals? weird combo, but the song was awesome. this shit ruled. not much critique here, just a solid synthpop song that got stuck in my head. 4.1./5.0 -WINNER-
"champagne (extended mix)"
not even sosa could save this one man. I said twitch-streamer music on another one of these, but thats literally what this sounded like. I just can't stand vocals like this at all. one of the worst songs of the comp so far. sorry to do this to ya man. just sounded like some katy perry interlude music while the next league of legends team gets ready for their elimination round 1.0/5.0 -ELIMINATED-
dug the synths a lot on this one. pretty gothy. know you rec'd me this because we just jammed depeche mode the other day. well, of course I like this, reminds me a lot of DM. will check these guys out if its all poppy/gothy synth shit. 3.75/4.0
song was really meh, just reminded me of all the other twee/faux-southern influenced pop music that is played underneath a commercial for coca cola. just wasn't feelin this one at all man, sorry. 2.5/5.0
