melodii peoples

1.      Vicarious
This one will have to grow on me… it seems *done* before… I think the intro killed it for me b/c I was pretty bored with this one from 0:00 to 1:00. Honestly they can *miss me* on the whole intro. It doesn’t get good until the singing starts at 1:03. Then I’m happy.
 
2.       Jambi
I like the rock-y beginning of it and then it loses me around the 1:18 mark. It kinda averages out in the middle. The guitaring at the end almost gets missed b/c of the boring mid section of this song.

3. Wings For Marie (Pt 1)
Love it. Slow to start (it takes a minute, literally), but once it gets going… magic. It’s like the soundtrack to a suspense scene that only Maynard can see. It goes into the System Of A Down (SOAD)-ish sound from 1:10 on.
 
This one took 3 listens for me to enjoy it. It sounded like more SOAD stuff, but not as soulful as them. Still good though. They start to rock out after the verse n’ thunder n’ stuff around 3:27. At 5:40 they take it up a notch and gear up for serious rockin’. Then at 8:21 they start jumping around in my head at a dizzying pace. It’s cymbals and electric guitar all up in your ear from there on out! Happy, Happy, Joy Joy!! Then Maynard calms your ass down at 9:49, all while sing/talking to you saying, “I hate you ‘cause you don\'t love me and i hope god doesn\'t like you either cause you left me and I\'m gonna sit here and cry.” If my SO said that I’d be singing crybaby-crybaby, but Maynard makes it seem manly. Go figure.
5. The Pot
Yes. Steady beat? Check. Illegal substances? Check. Neck-rollin’ possibilities? Check. Rocked out guitars (3:05)? Check. Told somebody off? Check.
6. Lipan Conjuring
Native-American-style chanting. Light my Nag Champa d00de, ‘cuz I’m lovin’ this track. At 1:00, I’m channeling Alice In Chains front man, Layne Staley.
7. Lost Keys Definite AIC-Rooster sounds here. I’d love to mix these two songs… especially since I love Rooster. Then at 2:32 there’s a dream-like scene at a doctor’s office. The nurse hands the doctor the chart and there’s some confusion. No ID on the patient and the patient won’t speak. The doctor assures the patient that they’re in a safe place and it then leads into the next track.",1] ); //-->4. 10,000 Days (Wings Pt 2)

8. Rosetta Stoned I hear this deep gruff voice fast-talking the hell outta me and some old school guitaring going on the background for 11 minutes or so. At 7:04 it switches up and gets all bass guitar-y on me. I\n like it though. Then the guitar starts wailin’ over it while someone knuckle-knocks up a conga in a frenzy. You’ll have to listen to the rest yourself.
 
9. Intension Industrial. It sounds like someone’s shoveling around metal or nails or something. Then, the voices... the voices!! They invade your head with whispers and then they sing to you a harmonic, tribal melody for about 3 and a ½ minutes. At 4:00 it’s a melodic Pet Shop Boys sounding guitar solo. When the others join in it’s a SOAD-laced/Armenian guitarsy jam. At 4:45, Nine Inch Nails’ producer must have slipped in this tasty tech-pop beat a la Neptunes. *in Homer Simpson voice* “Mmmmm…\n tech-pop…”
 
10. Right In Two They nailed it with this one. I think they channeled Alice In Chains here too. All this… and it has a message. Awww!

11. Viginti Tres
The “Orc Mating Call Song,” as I affectionately call it. It creeps me out and I will only listen to it during the daytime and there must be another person in the room with me whilst I listen. It goes into the bin with the Mars Volta/Interpol stuff that creeps me out.

Sounds like somebody is a little SOAD-obsessed.
