Hi, Ceren! I made your tape. :D

OK, so I had a hard time putting this tape together. You had basically told me to put whatever I wanted on it, and I'm terrible at making decisions. HAHA. I eventually put this tape together. It's my first attempt at a themed tape. All of these tracks were released this year, and they're some of my favorites. My comments are interspersed in blue.

hello !
my review;

I'm saying it beginning of my review; my English is not very good so sometimes i couldnt express my opinions.


Hey, it's no big deal. :nice:

1-great opening! energic.

That was my intent. :nice: This is "Norgaard" by The Vaccines.

2-After the energic song here comes a slow song. It is kind of a British-Scotish type. Good but too slow :/

Yep, it's British. Radiohead, actually. This is their song "Codex."

3-I like the beginning of this song. I know this voice and also this melody. Is this a soundtrack or something else? or a Turkish band covered this song so I'm similar the melody

Nope, it's not on a soundtrack. It's from a Brooklyn-based band called TV on the Radio. This song is called "Caffeinated Consciousness."

4-mm lovely voice. melody and voice reminds me Hypnogaja. such a good soothing song,

Yeah, it is. It's "Exile Vilify" by The National. I fell in love with it at first listen. :heart:

5-ouuv different beginning. I think voice and melody don't fit each other :/ melody needs more powerful voice. the last 1 minute is GREAT!

Interesting. I feel like it's nice and clear, but hey, it's fine that you don't like it. The accelerando at the end is one of my favorite parts, too. :D This is "Music People" by IAMX, whose real name is Chris Corner. He used to front a band called Sneaker Pimps.

6- another northern song,i think. different vocal, i don't like this kind of music,sorry :(

It's OK. Justin Vernon's voice is an acquired taste for some people. Anyway, this is "Holocene" by Bon Iver.

7-he is using 'f*ck' so much haha :) :) i like the drums' beating und other electro stuffs

Yeah, he does. This is "Wicked Games" by The Weeknd. This has been the most surprising discovery for me as far as I'm concerned. I'm not typically into that sort of thing, but for some reason, to me this sounds really good.

8-Amy Winehouse? what a great voice wow! and meaningfull..

Close, but no. This is Adele. The song is called "I Found a Boy," and it's a bonus track from her album "21."

9-and old band? wait no no.. wow great passing slow to fast and fast to slow. I'm wondering who they are.

Surprisingly, no. They do sound it, though, don't they? This is an Australian band called Sparkadia, and this is their song "China."

10-another sort of slow song. opps vocal sings like a tired man. this song could be a great romantic film soundtrack

Like a tired man? :laugh4: I've never thought of it that way. I can see it, though. This is "Dear Friends" by Elbow, who I've pretty much fallen in love with over this past year, partly because of the "tired man" voice of Guy Garvey. :tongue:

11-haha funny voice :) :) who is this?? I'm very wonder the vocals' appearance.shalalshallashalal i love this part!

I'm quite pleased that you like this one. This is "Doorstep" by tUnE-yArDs. This duo is notorious for using a lot of vocal loops.

12-another slow and not-my-type song. but this one is good pure and impressive voice.

I love James Blake so much. :heart: This is his song "Measurements."

13-finally a song began with a guitar and carries on very good. but there is no lyrics :/ after 2:40 my brain woke up :D

Yeah, I thought maybe an instrumental would be nice for a change. Oh well. This is called "Think:Breathe: Destroy," and it's from an istrumental rock band called And So I Watch You From Afar.

14-just piano and great vocal-one of my favourite combination.I can sleep very well with this song :heart:

It is quite beautiful. :wacky: This is "Goshen" by Beirut.

15- hmmm drums&guitars are upbeat but i didn't like the voice again :/ :/ wait..is this muse? no no.

HAHAHAHA, no. Matt's voice isn't that good in the lower end of the register. Good guess, though. It's actually Julian Casablancas and his band, The Strokes. This is their song "Metabolism."

thanks for your mixtape. i loved half of it but sorry some of them are not in my music taste :( but I'll keep listening them,I want to open my mind for other music genres :)

Hey, it's all good. As long as you got something out of it, I'm happy. :hug:
Here's the track listing in full:

1. "Norgaard"-The Vaccines (What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?)
2. "Codex"-Radiohead (The King of Limbs)
3. "Caffeinated Consciousness"-TV on the Radio (Nine Types of Light)
4. "Exile Vilify"-The National (Think You Can Wait/Exile Vilify single)

Yeeeey :D it’s time for my review…..

Sorry if I’m a bit late :(
Okay, so may I just start with saying that i love my mixtape?
This is probably the best one I’v gotten so far on this site… there wasn’t a track on here that i didn’t like, and they flow well with etachother !

Well let’s start then, shall we?
Hi there! I'm Felicia, your mixtape maker. Wow! Thanks for the compliment! :)
I kinda stalked your last.fm to know your overall music tastes before I chose the tracklisting. I was busy and I didn't have much time and I just put my recent favourite songs. :D

Track 1
At firt when the song started I thought it was Elbow but i soon realised that it wasn’t them! It seems to be about a guy who was in love with someone but they split up and suddenly the life he used to live dousn’t make sense anymore. I like how it start off so simple with only the keybord (or whatever) in the background and the builds itself up! And from 1:30 and on it’s just really great :)
Latest single "No Rest" by Dry the River. The lead singer has one the most gorgeous voices I've ever heard :heart:

Track 2
Is this The Editors? I don’t know them that well but this guy sounds a little bit like the lead singer and it could be their sound :shrug: either way he’s got a good voice and I really like the whole feel to the song!! This is also about a relationship not working out, they’r together but there is nothing left between them to hold on to as he sings ” Love will tear us apart, again”
This is Swans.. they covered Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

Track 3
I’m feeling some kind of girlpower going on here! The woman singing appears to me as a very strong woman who stands up for herself! There’s alot of male vocals on this tape (which I really like btw.) so I think she ought to be strong :p Whoever this is they have a great sound and I really liked this track!!!
I don't really listen to female singers but this woman has a great voice. I like her voice alot. :)

Track 4
Ooooo… me likey the drums :p
Hmmm…. I swar I’v heard this before, it’s sounds so very familiar!!!
I like it alot, I like how it start out with that slow simple and straight forward sound an the it suddenly changes slightly in the middle of the song it’s till pretty simple but it somehow got more energi now….
And the last 30 seconds of instrumental is really cool
I’m curious to fint out who this is!!!
This is a new single called "Black Night" by The Dodos. Yes, I think you'd find this familiar, since you're a fan(aren't you?).

Track 5
Hmmm… starts of all mysterious with wierd noises, butt hen the guitar kickes in and it makes you wanna tap you’r fot!!!
Not my favorite on this tape but i still like it, who knows it might grow on me ☺
This is "Outside" by Lowline. I think this track would be better if it weren't too lengthy..

Track 6
I really like the way the tape’s been building up untill this point and now its slowing a little bit down only to build itself up even more towards the end ! gives you a little bit room to breath and you don’t get all the upbeat stuff thrown after you all at once :p

This seems to be about a man who’s trying to escape from his depression, yet the feel of the song itself is kind of happy :p a brilliant idea and at the end he for some reason sings about cough syrup, guess it’s some kind of metaphore for getting better or something! Overall a nice track !
This is the last track I put on the mixtape. A friend recommended me this song and I think the guy has a nice voice. This is "Cough Syrup" by Young The Giant.

Track 7
Is this Icelandic? If you’r my mixtapemaker Egil I swear to God I’m gonna eat my own hair!!!!!! Hmmm…..maybe it’s not Icelandic ( I really have no idea, maybe its Finnish or something)…. Well anywho it’s a really nice and mellow song, this could easily have been too sweet but I really think she pulled it off!
Yes! This is a song by an Icelandic young band, called Rokkurro.
Who's Egil by the way? :p


Track 8
This song is a strange mix between mellow and melancholic I like the feel of it though! It’s about this guy who lost his love and now he’s feeling like his world has been ripped apart and there’s no more reason, he's feeling thin, weak and lost…… I like his tender voice and the echo effect addes a nice touch !
This is "Music For A Nurse" by Oceansize. It's a really long track, so cheers for the patience.

Track 9
Absolutly love the beginning… all messy and loud, and I like myself some screaming :p
I really think it’s cool how chaotic and edgy it is! It also has a rawness to it that I really like!
This is "We Dine on Seeds" by a young hardcore band called Axis Of. Feel like headbanging! :D

Track 10
Yeah dude now we’re talking !I’m digging the guitar at 1:00…. Oh it stopped :(
It’s replaced by a guy that's talking about how fucked up society can be, with only the keyboard in the backround but it get's interupted my some more dramatic sounds and the voice keeps on talking… more desperate now, and the last minute is just this intense instrumental!!! I’m just blown away :O I liked this so much….

Kind og remindes me of the song Be Safe by The Cribs (but not really ) it’s not so dramatic though:p
Glad you liked this! :D The talk is actually some quotes taken from the movie "Network". This is by Maybeshewill.


Track 11
A nice instrumental track at the end… It really settling and it fits perfectly to end this tape!
Good work !
This is by And So I Watch You From Afar. I thought it'd be nice if I put a mellower track at the end of the tape.

The higlights (for me :p) of this tape was track 1,3,10, and overall i give this tape a 8/10
Thank you for making met his great tape!!!! :D I’m looking forward to gett he tracklisting….
Thank you for listening and reviewing! I didn't expect that you'll love this! :kiss:
Here's the tracklisting:

Hi, I'm kasaa and I made your mixtape. I'm sorry all the tags weren't gone, I always have trouble with that :(



Didn't expect you to like this one, or the last one, would just like to say that his record company actually forced him to change his music to be more like other rappers, his earlier work is very differrent. Much darker.



You're quite right, I was honestly thinking about taking it out after realizing how popular they were becoming, but the tape would have been too short.



Lady Luck by Jamie Woon. Funny, it doesn't sound like a rap song at all to me :thinking:



Had a feeling you'd know this one.

By the way, we are now entering the Icelandic part of this tape.



From Now On by Dikta. They're Icelandic, very popular as well. One of their more popular tunes if my memory serves me well.



By and By by Lay Low, I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it on an airplane actually :heart:



Out of Place by Ourlives, I like this song, but it's mostly on here to fill time:p



Icelandic :) Rauðilækur by Mammút.

And now we get a bit more international to finish the tape :)



Why would I take any offense to that, everybody is entitled to their own opinion :)
And you are right Trouble Is A Friend by Lenka
On the other hand I don't understand why people can't listen to a song they enjoy by an artist they normally wouldn't, I just don't get it :\



Måndagsbarn by Veronica Maggio, basically she's singing about her whole life being one big weekend, but the monday has got to come sooner or later.



That's right, brilliant song :)



I'm sorry you feel that way :(



It's okay that you don't like them, I just always try to have as much diversity as I can on my tape's. I really get tired of hearing all these obscure just to be weird bands. Anyway here's the tracklist and link

1: Lupe Fiasco - Letting Go (feat.Sarah Green)
2: Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks
3: Jamie Woon - Lady Luck
4: The Strokes - Under Cover of Darkness
5: Dikta - From Now On
6: Lay Low - By and By
7: Ourlives - Out of Place
8: Mammùt - Rauðilækur
9: Lenka - Trouble Is a Friend
10: Veronica Maggio - Måndagsbarn
11: Radiohead - My Iron Lung
12: Lupe Fiasco - I'm Beaming

Hi Kasaa. Thank you for making this tape! Well I enjoyed the overall tape, except for the rap songs :p I just don't like rap/hip-hop music.. I don't know why, it's just not my thing :\ Cheers

I don't think I can postpone this any longer so here goes, review time!

Track 1: The opening is a bit messy, but it has kind of a sumer-feel to it. The singer has an okay voice, I just can't understand a word he's saying :p I like the rythm of the song, good start.

Track 2: Electronic start to this one, catchy guitar. Nice voice, lyrics are good as well.Looking forward to finding out who this is :)

Track 3: M.IA. Huh? No idea which song it is, but it sure is catchy.

Track 4: The guitar start to this is really nice, I really enjoyed this track. The singer has a relaxing voice imo.

Track 5: Is that a lute? Very medieval feel to this one, not really my style, don't quite like the singers voice. Overall an ok song.

Track 6: Opens with some royal sounding strings, I like strings they're very underrated. So this is an opera song then? She's got an amazing voice. Good song.

Track 7: That's a heavy transition right there, but I like this song, good drummer, good guitar, very good singer, loving the lyrics. Great track

Track 8: Well this is different, very showtune-like start. National express, aye?

Track 9: I love this intro, very catchy. The song is kinda weird, but I like it.

Track 10: Putting The Dog To Sleep by The Antlers. I love this song

Overall I really liked the tape, some interesting artists to check out. Thank you for making it :)

BTW, sorry my review sucks :disappointed:

Hello kasaa, I was your mixtape maker. I'm glad you liked it, I was afraid you found it a bit messy.
I don't think I can postpone this any longer so here goes, review time!

Track 1: The opening is a bit messy, but it has kind of a sumer-feel to it. The singer has an okay voice, I just can't understand a word he's saying :p I like the rythm of the song, good start.
I remember hearing this song on an indie radio, thought it was ok but interesting and yes it has a summery and intro feel
Track 2: Electronic start to this one, catchy guitar. Nice voice, lyrics are good as well.Looking forward to finding out who this is :)
Phantogram, a trip-hop and rock or something band, they're good, their 2010 album Eyelid Movies is worth acquiring.
Track 3: M.IA. Huh? No idea which song it is, but it sure is catchy.
Sure this is MIA, again summery but this time dancy feel
Track 4: The guitar start to this is really nice, I really enjoyed this track. The singer has a relaxing voice imo.
Berlin-born band The Whitest Boy Alive; the lead singer is actually from Norway!
Track 5: Is that a lute? Very medieval feel to this one, not really my style, don't quite like the singers voice. Overall an ok song.
The XTC, it takes time to appreciate what I would call one of the first true innovating and indie bands, just after Roxy Music. They're kind of weird anyway.
Track 6: Opens with some royal sounding strings, I like strings they're very underrated. So this is an opera song then? She's got an amazing voice. Good song.
Actually it's Cristopher Hogwood orchestra, this is one piece of Vivaldi, it's beautiful isn't it? Just to proove those jerks that Vivaldi didn't make the same tune 400 times, even Stravinsky said that *wails*
Track 7: That's a heavy transition right there, but I like this song, good drummer, good guitar, very good singer, loving the lyrics. Great track
I guess you'd like to recover from the classical and the calm pieces with this sheer rock song
Track 8: Well this is different, very showtune-like start. National express, aye?
Yup, this is high-quality baroque pop from The Divine Comedy
Track 9: I love this intro, very catchy. The song is kinda weird, but I like it.
this is electronic/dubstep-or-whatever San Francisco producer Brendan Angelide aka known as Eskmo.
Track 10: Putting The Dog To Sleep by The Antlers. I love this song
I love these guys, their last two albums were excellent
Overall I really liked the tape, some interesting artists to check out. Thank you for making it :)

BTW, sorry my review sucks :disappointed:
01 I was thinking by Gauntlet Hair
02 Mouthful of Diamonds by Phantogram
03 Pull up the people by M.I.A.
04 Burning by The whitest boy alive
05 Sacrifical Bonfire by XTC
06 Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera by Vivaldi performed by the Academy of Ancient Music Orchestra and Chorus of Cristopher Hogwood
07 The Rat by The Walkmen
08 National Express by The Divine Comedy
09 Cloudlights by Eskmo
10 Putting the dog to sleep by the antlers

And here's the link if you want to check it out:

Sorry for the lateness, I did enjoy my mixtape however I knew a few of the songs and a fair few still had the album art on...

1) Spanish Sahara by Foals, an absolutely amazing song, I love it. A great start to a mixtape.

2) I know this as well, The Doberman by Kasabian, a good song, not one of their best.

3) I don't know this one, but there is album art which says 'The Middle east'...is that the band or what? :L A good song, acoustic, nice and chilled out, the music I am in to.

4) ANOTHER song I know, but yet again, a good song. Friendly fires- White Diamonds!!!

5) A folky song, I really like this. Is it by the same guy who sings Trouble? Ray somebody...

6) Female vocals. And I love the drums on this, lovely! :)

7) I don't mind this, a pretty good up beat rocky song. Quite catchy, just a bit generic.

8) Another song I know, with album art, It is 30 Seconds to Mars- Alibi. I quite like 30 seconds to mars although a lot of their songs can be quite boring and samey, I do like this one!

9) Another acoustic song, this is good! :D

10) Probably my favourite on the mixtape, it sounds like Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol, I think it is him...but I don't know the song!

11) Another good song...I recognize the voice, I think! Is it David Gray??? I think it is.


Well...thank you mix tape maker, I did enjoy the mix tape, however I do wish you would have looked at my Last.fm...which is in my sig, and look at the bands I already listen to.

But thank you!!! :D

Oh, I like the artwork. :cheesy:
What is Boxon mixtape supposed to mean?

1. So at first I was like "this reminds me of Michael Jackson lol" and then I heard the words "smooth criminal" and I was like "I'M A GENIUS". I've never actually listened to this song before. I love this. A lot. :|

2. I'm gonna kick someone in the face because I swear I know who this girl is hfjdsahgkag. I'm guessing whoever it is is Irish based off cause I listen to a lot of celtic punk and the accent and stuff kinda reminds me of it. :|

3. This is in French. I am now angry because I went through a short obsession with music in French and basically was an expert in it but I can't recognize this. HORN SECTION. Yay.
I am absolutely not rocking back and forth as I listen to this. :|

4. So this is apparently by "VAMPS" or whatever. YOU ARE SUCH A FAILURE AT DELETING INFORMATION GET OUT OF MY LIFE. It doesn't have the title though. I didn't like it at first but then at about 50 seconds it became awesome. I fail at describing things by the way so you just get random comments from me I guess. I am sitting on my floor wearing ridiculous sunglasses and a hat, I'm totally all prepared for this. Actually the hat is holding onto these awful headphones because they keep falling off my head and I just found these glasses on the floor. wait do I hear another horn or am i crazy omg horns can I just marry horns. These sunglasses are like awful cat eye things. Right now I guess I've neutral towards this song but I think it will grow on me. Yup. That first "yeah" at the end sounded exactly like Reese Roper like omg.

TRACK FIVE. I think a ghost snuck into my mixtape. I keep thinking this girl is singing in French. xD I JUST REMEMBERED WHO THIS REMINDS ME OF BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME ;_____; I swear I know who this is life sucks ANGST. I like it, it sounds a bit older but I'unno man. Oh my god I just found this duck bill mask thingy that is so awesome I am going to put it on immediately.

6~ What on earth with like a minute in, there's singing in like a voice that sounds like power metal or glam metalish or whatever I forget OKAY?! I can't help but laugh because it reminds me of Reese Roper's Stryper impression. Wow, 6 songs in and I've already mention Reese Roper twice. Or three times if you count that. I like the other vocals though. Not sure what I think about it. Half the time I love it and half the time I don't. Haha, if you play just like a second of a random spot of this song it sounds like a horn. :|

Sneve. This mixtape sounds so old but I don't know if the stuff is actually old or if it's new bands trying to sound old. The percussion or whatever the word is that starts after a bit reminds me so freaking much of Anathallo. This voice kinda makes me want to pick up this pen I just found on the floor ad snap it in half but that wouldn't end well.

8. Beginning reminds me of Brave Saint Saturn kinda hahaha. Oh crap, does that count as another Reese Roper reference? So is the score 4 or 5 now or what? :|
French again. I actually understand a lot of this am I a genius or what.
Oh my god I found another maskish thing it's a cat nose and mouth or something, sharing a bedroom with people is amusing. Wait when did the duck bill move up to my forehead WHAT HAVE I DONE.
It seems writing reviews while I listen to my mixtape for the first time is a bad idea :|

Nein. I am genuinely frightened.

10. I found a Chatimal or whatever it's called on the floor just now. I am sitting here having it listen to this song and play it back to me. Many lulz were had. Meh, this song doesn't suck but it's kinda boring.

Elven. It starts off pretty like a music box. :3
The vocals are pretty.
This song is pretty.
Yeah.
Pretty is probably the wrong word now that I think of it.

12. I was like "WHAT IS GOING ON" but then I realized iTunes had come on and was playing track 11 at the same time. The vocals in this make me laugh haha. Also sounds oldish. Welp. SO MANY MINUTES I don't have the attention span for this maaaaaaaaaaan. I rather like this though actually. xD

LAST SONG. omg it's this song hjhgkjahgadgjkfg I've never heard the real version I remember this from elementary school I loved it so much haha I think when I was in choir because I wanted pizza this was one of the song we sang. This makes me happy.


I think overall I'd give this mixtape a 7 out of 10, I have no idea who you are haha.
My favourite is probably the first one. It won't get out of my head. :disappointed:


Oh my that was an awful review. :|

Okay, time for review. Sorry if it’s not that precise, complete or whatever, I tried my best…

Track 01 / m: Indian thing with something jazz to it, very cool groove to start with.

Track 02 / i: Instrumental one, again something jazz...I can hear kind of an oriental touch in the sound...but why does it stop that suddenly?

Track 03 / x: Cee Lo Green, Fuck You! Hope that ‘you’ is not me haha. Anyway, I knew it and I really like it though Cee Lo Green’s music is not my cup of tea, it’s such a liberating song!

Track 04 / i: The very beginning reminds me of The Vaccines...then also a bit of Scouting for Girls...Good rhythm, energetic song. Good drum beat.

Track 05 / n: Without all those ah ah ah ah ah the song would be definitely better XD However, cool song, fresh and summerish stuff.

Track 06 / d: First of a series of very evocative tunes. I like the way the voice seems to come from afar, as if it was brought by the wind he mentions.

Track 07 / a: The beginning of this song sounds so familiar to me, but I cannot figure out why, it must be similar to some other song I know...anyway not bad but it becomes a bit repetitive from a certain point on.

Track 08 / t: Beautiful folk song, gentle vocals. Maybe, again, all those ah aaaaah are not necessary, they seem kind of odd in such a simple song with this folk sound. The guitar is perfect. The non-deleted information says Queen...I should have recognised Mercury’s voice.

Track 09 / s: First thought: love the guitaaaaar! Its sound and the singer’s warm voice make this song one of the best of the tape.

Track 10 / h: Is it a xylophone what I hear? I’m not sure I like it, it kind of becomes annoying from a certain point on. The guys have very warm voices though.

Track 11 / i: What I like the most of this song are the instrumental parts, they trigger a lot of different emotions, both positive and negative. I cannot explain properly, but let’s say it’s almost the same sensation I have when listening to Politik...almost. On the other hand, the blurred vocals are so relaxing.

Track 12 / t: Another instrumental, another evocative melody, very relaxing and emotional at the same time. Perfect to listen to with the wind coming in from my window.

To sum up: I’d have never expected that a tape which starts energetic and cool could end up so evocative and emotional, I thought it would be a ‘light’ mix, but when I got to the end, I just had to change my mind. So, good job, dear mixtaper! I’m pretty sure I’ll check out some of the artists you put in the mix.
