A Cup of Tea and a Sit Down - The WiddyCent Collection

1. Good choice for a starting track. Nice and chill intro which builds up quite nicely towards the end. From the clapping at the end I am assuming it was live. If that is the case, it is quite well done. The voice sounds quite familiar, once I see the list I am sure I will kick myself for not recognizing it.

2. I like the guitar in this one, they are quite good. Listening to the lyrics I am thinking this is going to be a nice, laid back compilation (not a bad thing). The addition of the harmonica is a very nice touch, it goes well with the songs "theme".

3. This is another voice that sounds quite familiar. I am a sucker for piano, so this one got me from the begging. This one builds up as well with nice mixture of piano and strings.

4. I almost put this track on my compilation, glad I did not now. Excellent song.

5. Not too bad of track. The voice took a couple of listens to get used to. Sort of a generic pop/rock style track.

6. My boss and I listened through this CD once, he recognized this group right away. Very nice track. It's like one day they were just jamming out for a warm up, and ended up making it into a great, fun track (as the title suggests). They are from Houston, but I will not hold that against them, hehe.

7. Pretty tricky track. Starts off with a bit of piano and funky beats, then comes the rapping. A twist from the other songs so far, I did the same thing on mind. This song was alright, but nothing special, odd outro on it.

8. Recognized this from the get go, great song by a great artist. Glad to see you put some "older" jams on here, something mine lacks.

9. Nice bass on this one, sounds pretty good in my car. A sort of reggae/rap flowing style of vocals. Not a bad track, but nothing really stands out about it.

10. This track probably got the most plays out of the entire comp. I figured it to be either another rap or possibly a dance track until the actual instruments came in. The vocals are very smooth and go excellent with the music. Starts with a soft tone, then peaks at the chorus, and ends on a nice fade out. I will for sure look more into this artist when I find out who it is.

11. Back to the poppy acoustic rock on this track. Kind of flowing lyrics, which leads back to a pop style chorus. Fits in with the theme pretty good. Another decent track, but nothing really stands out with it.

12. I like this track, very 70's sounding. Builds up quite nicely at the begging and is complemented by the vocals. It does seem a bit repetitive, but still a nice choice. I think this is another live track, which sounds really well done.

13. Another track I recognized right away. Probably played the second most on the comp. When my boss and I were listening to it we started dancing like dumb asses in our seats (just to be stupid). Perfect end to a well put together compilation.

Sorry for the late and rubbish review. Be gentle, it is my first time. Good job on this, Rach. A track list would be greatly appreciated.
7.5/10

Edit: The .5 goes out to Adam for his funky font. wink.gif

a cup of tea and a sit down.
or. prairie dogging it in a house with unlock doors. damn the cats.


1. ha. i adore this artist, and the song is wonderful, the lyrics however confuse me. is it about a father and a son or pedophila? tongue.gif
2. booyah! here was the conversation when i listened to this song with jess:
(me)i know this song.
(jess)so do i.
(me)it's....
(jess) i cant remeber.
(me)damn.
3. yeah yeah yeah! i love this song. definetly one of my favorites and the best that the band has come out with. it contains what i consider to be one of the best lyrics of life.:

nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight.
gotta kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight.

4. this song is really good. i enjoy it, though the piano is somewhat annoying. i like the lyrics though.
5. cool. i heard this at the triangle (a bar) on friday and was the only one who knew the song.
6. jess loves this song. i do not. fun to dance too, though.
7. me and jess no likey.
8. it reminds of grease. i have no idea why. me likey.
9. tis cool. makes me wanna shake something. i just dont know what. oddly enough not my bootie.
10. what is that instrument? i heard it once on a barbie video game. (what? i worked with children)
11. likey, but not so much. nice vocals though.
12. odd. vraiment odd. not a bad thing. i like the flute. but i like flutes.
13. fun. drôle. i will not slip.
also i liked the cover. c'est cool.

dont click here julie.

yeah. i know it's cover but it is amazing. i really love their older stuff. jane, brian wilson, and what a good boy are favorites, and the old apartment also. i dont like anything later then stunt although i do like thanks that was fun, and i barely like stunt - too much pop, but when you dream is a wonderful track

That's cool. I hadn't heard the original version before anyway - theirs is the only one I know, and I loves it.

I'm the opposite though, in that I like everything from Stunt onwards (as well as most of everything prior). When I first bought Maroon, I played it constantly, and still do on a regular basis - it's their best one overall, I reckon. And although Everything To Everyone took a lot of getting used to, I've recently switched on to it, big time. I mean, how can you not like a song about having been sent anonymous postcards, all with Chimpanzees on them in a variety of different costumes/uniforms, etc? biggrin.gif

their new stuff just makes me feel like i'm at a sharon, lois, and bram concert. it's really odd, because the are not like sharon, lois, and bram; and i have some very fond memories of sharon, lois, and bram (who dident like them when they were a kid? they were the shit.) but i just dont like it.

Ah. Right.

I know that BNL have a quirky sense of humour and fun in their songs, but that does strike me as a little harsh a comparison... smile.gif
