1. Silent Lucidity: Synth violin chords, very hard shapes to get down.
2. Got You (Where I Want You): Yeah, this actually has keys. And it's around eight easy chords, so you can see why they didn't bother to point it out in the presser.
3. So Far Away: Oh wait, the press release lied here too. No keys. But, and here's the kicker, it's pretty obvious that there should be. Why the synth violins aren't charted here I don't know, especially considering what else came out this week. GNF? Ryan? Wanna take a crack at it?
1. Silent Lucidity: That main riff is pretty slow but still enjoyable. The solo's lameish, though.
2. So Far Away: Has a similar slow main riff, but is also permeated with chordy blandness,
3. It's Been A While: There are only three patterns, and none of them are particularly good.
4. Got You (Where I Want You): For a short song, it sure feels really repetitive.
If we never get a forgettable nineties one-"hitter" again, it will be too soon.
Overall, the song choices are alright, but the charting choices seem to reinforce a lack of morale in the wake of having to stop DLC in a month's time. Or at least I hope that's why this egregious mistake was made. Otherwise, I'm just going to say it: If DLC stopping isn't causing HMX to falter in their charting, then HMX faltering in their charting means that DLC should stop.
This is a sermon you've seen me say so many times, so I won't bog the topic down with it. But seriously, this is crazy.
