Phenotype is incredibly enjoyable. There is a good level of variety on the album, combining all the different aspects that Textures fan will have loved from past albums; while throwing in some exciting new ideas!
The songs very well constructed, with excellent concepts, delivered through Mustaine's excellent vocal performance and lyrics, that match the music. Megadeth back to their best!
Hello and welcome to the latest installment of my Songs Of The Week! If you’re unfamiliar with this section, it’s where I let you guys in on what I’ve been listening to each week. Despite it being Megadeth week, I have somehow managed to listen to some not Megadeth songs! These are possible the only ones though; thankfully they’re amazing. We’ve got a couple of unsigned bands, and some new tracks from well established bands, and an early contender for my song of the year!
Fin Henderson – At Least We’ll Sing
What is there to say about this song! It really grabs you right from the start with an impressive a cappella intro provide a great insight into Henderson‘s incredible musical talent. This then builds into the verse without losing the a cappella parts; a challenging feat that is pulled off fantastically, giving really great harmonic depth the track. As it’s built around a variety of voices, each with their own line, they interact interacting in perfect polyphony, so the result in a lot of different melodies going in different directions, like in classical music, so there’s a lot more happening musically compare to in a guitar based backing when at most it can maybe play two lines through use of chords. When Finn‘s lead vocal enters you’re hit by a distinctive and outstanding voice; it provides a memorable lead melody, along with insightful and meaningful lyrics. I really love how intricate the backing vocals in the chorus are as well; it’s just an all round great track!
For Fans Of: Plan B (The second album)/ Will Young?/ tbh I’m kind of struggling here, if you have any suggestions, let me know in the comments
