Hey, so it's pretty late here but I've nothing else to do so I'm gonna review the mixtape that I recieved...
It is entitled Mystery Box and came with cool cover art of weird neon lines/cables :)
1). Ambient guitar intro, with Latin american percussion.... building now with a harp, sorta like Florence and the machine... pounding drums, cymbal crashes!
Like it a lot, wish it was longer - 8/10
2). Guitar, Bass and drums... I know straight away this is the Chili Peppers! Don't know the song itself but love the groove :D
3). Weird distorted guitar with shaker, low voice... it's Bono... not a U2 fan so I don't know the track... he's singing about losing himself in the "summer rain"... drums come in now; not really my thing - 3/10
4). COLDPLAY! I recognised it straight away, it's Only Superstition! Not much else to be said :D - 10/10
5). Twinkling noise, with seagulls... drums and chanting, synth brass... FLORENCE! I'd know her voice anywhere! Can't remember the name of the tune but I love it :D - 10/10
6). Straight away, guitar and percussion... sounds sort of Indian influences! Definitely the voice of Guy Garvey, of Elbow! Not sure if its an Elbow song or one of his solo projects but still good - 7/10
7). Guitar, drums and bass... same rhythm looking now power chords... sort of a punk vibe to it... Sounds like Pearl Jam or AC DC, not too sure... not really my thing either so - 3/10
8). Ambient marimba, with a weird swooshing sound, guitar... it's ODE TO DEODERANT! 10/10
9). Electric guitar starting us off... bit of bass and drums, building, building...nice loop... sort of a crackling noise... rock breakdown; back into the original loop... very punk-esque and very repetitive - 2/10
10). Guitar starting once again, reverb - very 70s! Love it! Drums and the backward effects, like Jimi Hendrix and Thin Lizzy - 8/10
11). Drums, guitar and an American voice... very 90s alt rock... "I know which I like and which one I hate"... weird piano over a drum and guitar pattern now with the vocals just starting... interesting and I like it! Very unique :) 7/10
12). Guitar and drums to start... it's only the Chili Peppers again! Love them anyway 8/10
13). Drums, percussion and chanting... now guitar... sound British, don't know it at all! "You might as well face it your addicted to drugs", well I'm not but okay! - 4/10
14). Violin, guitar and a bass run/riff... now a more prominent guitar and piano, drums and synth...very rock now, syncopated kick pattern... sounds like Muse which are again not appealing to me :( 3/10
15). Guitar and bass with a clean vocal and drums.... sort of like Catfish and the bottlemen but it's not them, kind of repetitive with a weird cut off intro - 5/10
16). This has to be Tame Impala, if not it's very similar... drum machine look with acoustic guitar and some synths, very weird tune... I don't think it's Tame Impala now actually but the vocals at the start were somewhat similar - 4/10
17). Synth with a light glockenspiel melody, U2 again...now acoustic guitar and electric... not that bad overall, even though the outro is a bit weird and goes on for too long - 5/10
18). THE LAST TRACK! Synths, drum machines... weird synths... light voice singing over the noise, I didn't like the intro but it goes into a piano driven and drum chorus, sort of like The Killers and the vocalist sounds different during it... 7/10
Now although I didn't like some of the tracks that were on this mixtape, the ones that I did like were great so for that I would give it a 7/10 overall! Thank you to whoever made this tape as I can tell a lot of effort went into it :D Can't wait to find out the names of the tracks and whoever made it!
