Your time is almost up..... Ailwyn Rees
So we're back to our Knights being serenaded by Guinevere again. I hope that when that proverbial shit hit the fan it didn't ruin her make-up too much? Oh, so it's Angelique? Reminiscing back to her childhood in part two. I think you should have employed her great vocal talents on some more of your soundtrack, experimental offerings. It's a refreshing change from your spoken dialogue! Overall a good production, melody and arrangement courtesy of your female vocalist. It was certainly the highlight of this track, overshadowing everything else. You might want to print off and frame this review, as it may be the last one you receive from the current members of Audiopolis....

Ah, it's Dominique Angelique! Ailwyn Rees
More fatherly obsessions with Mink Fur Traders! I really struggled to get into this track... It might have been better suited for the experimental, although I do appreciate that it's part of a project and linked into most of the other tracks in this category. Compared with the installment I just listened to this one was very disjointed. It just didn't flow for me at all!

Kraftwerk reinvented! Ailwyn Rees
Back to the jolly old schooldays there was a refreshing sound on the circuit done by a German band called Kraftwerk. This instantly reminded me of them! Not a lot of commercial appeal in today's market, but who gives a monkeys! It appeals to me! It's all well mixed, good electronically created musicianship, very original and quite refreshing. Hope you enjoy this latest review, because you're very unlikely to get another one too soon!

Zorba the Greek meets King Arthur Ailwyn Rees
Nice Zorba the Greek intro... I expect nothing less of you! Who's the lovely Guinevere in the background? The battle of the bands begin! With every rock-band from 1971, excluding The Frontliners! This was the best section of the song by far! Minks climbing up castle walls with heavy riffs, then sound off.... gone! You win the round, but just how many more will you win? Watch this space for further reviews...

Who Loves You? Ailwyn Rees
Who loves you? I kind of got the gist about what you were asking whilst you were taking one step backwards and two steps forward.Bit repetitive wasn't it? Run out of things to write about did we? Oh well, that's the whinge done and dusted. Let's analyse those aspects... Vocals are top notch, great harmonies, tight as a duck's arse and very pleasing to the ear, all resulting in a good melody Originality? Well, considering what I have been listening to on the radio lately, this song wouldn't be out of place on there! Good musicianship, arrangement and production rolled into one. Really liked the acoustic guitar work, and the lead guitar wasn't over dominant. Nice piece of work. Guess when your next review will come along???

Run off a different cliff! Why don't you think? Ailwyn Rees
No one really goes near the Experimental section, so why not pop your track into the Rock section to get a review! It came cross as a third rate Tubeway Army (Gary Numan) inspired track, repetitive vocals, somewhat meaningless... It all seemed to be computer generated from what I could hear... I hope I'm wrong? Couldn't really pick put the guitar and bass, and the drums really weren't doing much either? At least you have a review now. How many more are you expecting??? You may be disappointed!

Jessie on stage Wednesday evenings? Ailwyn Rees
I suppose waiting for reviews is like waiting for a bus... two come at once! You might get another one in the near future, but I seriously wouldn't hold you breath whilst waiting. It may be your last breath! The song was about Jessie... pretty obvious, but I suppose that all fits within the genre of a pop song... repeat, repeat, repeat! Good arrangement, production and mix, but I expect nothing less from you. Like I said in a previous write up, you upload, I review! Nice vocals and musicianship, but it didn't quite do it for me this time, as the preceding song did! Good all the same though, and I really enjoy listening to your songs on here.

What happened after 5 seconds? You know best! Ailwyn Rees
I used to love playing my 33rpm LP's. The problem was that I never used to look after them properly and you ended up with jumps, scratches, crackles etc., and sadly a great production has been spoilt here by some rather poor mixing. The first whoops is after about 5 seconds, almost like the stylus jumped. With all this modern digital productions, should that be happening? Now that the moaning is out of the way, let's crack on with the aspects... Bass? It's not there! If it were, you would have scored well, as it kinda underpinned the whole track very well. Vocals... they were tight and spot on. Originality... It's very listenable to, bar the issues above. Mix... see above! Oh well, I hope you enjoyed reading this review, as it could be the last one this song gets on this site, unless other site users pull their fingers out of their backsides and start reviewing!

King Arthur's planetary adventures Ailwyn Rees
Soundtrack for Sci-Fi film slant on King Arthur? Not often I delve into the Soundtrack section of the BRS, but I'm running out of options now. I do find it difficult to assess songwriting when the lead vocal is spoken. Perhaps dialogue would read better? The background vocals have a very haunting presence, and to be honest, they are the stand-out aspect of this song! I would have preferred the lead vocal to be sung! Would Guinevere have preferred it in outer space?

Happy Xmas! Ailwyn Rees
Well, this is the first Xmas song I have heard on the BRS! Quite a nice song altogether, but fancy waking up with a lurch? No way Jose! I've set a reminder on my phone to play this song on Xmas Day, as it's a damned sight better than the Xmas records that are churned out these days!
