Miracle of Sound: The Dead Don't Shuffle (Left 4 Dead)

 Pages PREV 1 2 3 NEXT
 

sweet. was thinking last week Id love to hear them do something for L4D. Why do they have mind reading and mind blowing powers?

I just the other day started listening to your music, and I have to say I already consider myself a fan. I don't think I have a standout favorite as of right now, but I can definitely say that in terms of being catchy and replay ability, this one is at the top of the list.

Another excellent song! I'm sad to hear that you aren't always a fan of L4D so thanks for making this as awesome as your other songs.

I'm not going to be able to purchase the album (Paypal, grumble grumble) but I will be keeping up with the iTunes releases. Looking forward to when this is added!

What a great title for the song.

Awesome sauce as always!!

Must get my 3V card topped up again so I can get my grubby mits on Normandy and the album! :)

And don't mind the nay sayers, man.

HHammond:

The lyrics in Miracle of Sound are usually the weakest part of the songs for me and that held true here. They have a tendency to be a little too literal. Sometimes they sound a bit awkward and forced.

You'd be amazed how many people complain that they are not literal enough and too 'metaphorical'. You really can't please everyone.

Fair enough!

MiracleOfSound:

HHammond:

The melody in this case was really really predictable. As soon as I read the first line of the lyrics before the video started I then sang the next 4 before playing the song and I was about 90% right.

I'm all for constructive criticism but if you're trying to say you guessed the melody before you listened to the song then, well, I smell a big pile of BS and hyperbole.

I should have clarified this. I meant mostly the rhythm and the melody but to a lesser extent.

MiracleOfSound:

HHammond:

As for the backing, it was mostly alright. A bit cliched but alright. Again, experimentation with different rhythms and playing techniques would be great. This is something I really really liked about Rebecca Mayes. She experimented every week. Every new song was something different. Yeah, they didn't always work but it never stagnated.

Listen to Sweet LA, then Necromorph Soup, then Santiago's Lament, then this song, then Little Sister then Trip To Vegas and then try to tell me even one of them sounds remotely similar in genre or style to any one of the others.

Okay, I'll give you that the songs are different but there is just something about them which, to me, feels a bit samey. I can't quite put my finger on it.

MiracleOfSound:

You don't like the music - that's totally cool with me. No probs.

But saying it doesn't try to be experiment and differentiate is, in my humble opinion... BS.

P.S. Don't mistake this for aggression or pissyness - I totally respect your opinions. I just disagree quite strongly with some of them. I don't usually respond to these kind of posts, but tonight I feel like it.

One of the most important things to learn in this life is which criticism to listen to, but even more important is learning which to ignore completely.

I do like most of your music! Sorry if I offended you. Wasn't the intention. Just like you it was just my opinion. I was just stating that I felt this one hadn't done anything to me compared to some of your other music.

Not a problem at all dude. Definitely wasn't offended, just felt I should clarify my stance ;)

I'm getting a few complaints from this area, I'm looking into trying to get the album onto Amazon as well. If it's not possible I'll work something out for the fans to make it up to you guys.

Do they require you to pay them to list physical products the same as they do for songs? If I remember correctly that's why your songs aren't on Amazon as downloads. If you could list the CD on Amazon then I'd definitely order a copy, if not then I only have myself to blame because as much as I dislike them, Paypal are well known and easy to access.

F-I-D-O:

Please say that was intentional. Please.

Ahh, but of course it was intentional! Two of the most famous Irishmen in history are Atlas and good ol' Gavin.

My brother also mentions some guy called "Bono" whoever the sweaty heck that is.

MiracleOfSound:

F-I-D-O:

It's MoS's plan. He really is just Soundwave in disguise He will take over your mind with music so you can't fight off the invasion. But at least you'll be humming a cathcy tune as you work for the musically talented robot overlords

Megatron. Soundwave reporting.

Humans have uncovered masterplan. Request permission to terminate...

[fzzzzzzzzz]

Acknowledged.

Ravage... eject.

Soundwave superior, all others, inferior.

Nobody calls Miracle of Sound un-crozamatic, that's for darn sure!

Just wondering, is there anything genre you can't do? Or are you just that crazy talented? ;P

Loving the tune in this one from the very start. It'll be firmly lodged in my skull from now on.

Yes.

I have the individual songs on amazon, just not the album!

Catchy Slogan:

I'm pretty sure he won't do an opera style song.
But that's not saying he can't...

Ooh, I just realised that a Wierd Al style end-of-the-year polka medley would be awesome. Do it! :D

Sorry, I didn't realise you'd now got them on Amazon. I'm not sure if I should continue buying the songs from iTunes or switch to Amazon, but I suppose I can decide when this song is added. For now I'm going to play Minecraft 1.8 and listen to Mining All Day Long.

My team says I can not charge or hunt or spit or smoke you.
Teammates, indeed, I quite agree
That I SUCK. (you suck!)
I suck at Left 4 Dead 2!

Well, he can always ask if Ellen McLain can help him out with that, she's an opera singer and all.

I'm saddened that you didn't include the lines "Everyday im shufflin" in this song :(

But on a serious note awesome job dude <3

Of course Zombies don't Shuffle!

Zombies don't dance, they just pull up their pants
And do the roca-wear.

Awesome. I seriously love L4D, this is making me regret selling my Xbox and only having a PS3 and shitty laptop.

There is a Miracle Of Sound CD? Welp, I know what I want for my birthday! Too bad your newest songs aren't on there, though. Guess that just means I'll have to buy a possible 2nd CD in the future. A sacrifice I can live with.

Wouldn't happen to have the tab for that laying about somewhere, Miracle? It has been a while since I've touched my Epiphone and I'd love to play it.

I will say it again Gavin, don't change what you're doing. You rock, you know it, and you're jamming like Jeff Bridges in everything you do, and that's faaarrr out man.

How the hell have I not heard any of your stuff until now =|
Off to listen to all the music!
I'm totally going to have this play in my head the next time I play L4D :D

There's also Phil Lynott, who should have appeared in your list well before Bono.

What kind of time might it take before the cd is available to buy on Amazon? I'd like to buy it for someone, but I can't buy it from an American website, apparently.

You know how I can tell he lives in the US?

There's none of the atrocious lag that plagues everywhere else due to crap US internet.

You know what's wrong with this song? It's not on iTunes yet! Why is the new one on iTunes and this one is not?

The instrumental bits REALLY reminded me of "White Limo" off the new Foo Fighters album. Come to think of it, that bridge thingy near the end reminded me of the bridge of... well, "Bridge Burning" off the exact same album.
You know what, it just sounded like the Foo Fighters. Which is kinda cool, honestly.
EDIT: Also, I was kinda really hoping it would be an actual blues shuffle kind of thing. Because honestly. How awesome would that be?

If you're playing for the "undead" side I would suggest playing Patient Zero by HammerFall from the Infected album.
It just seems to fit with the game.

"Yeah! White Limo!"

Haha i know there are only so many chords in the world but this one REALLY reminded me of that recent foo-fighters song

Realy similar to the first part(s)

I just remembered how much I loved L4D and how much I hated L4D2 :P
But sadly all my friends have moved on to League of Legends while I play HoN so no more L4D for us:(
Sad panda is sad.
