Propaganda (+ Acoustic)

Recommended Posts

Parts of the melody on the chorus are super similar to Kiss though.

 

They do the exact same bend, seems rather intentional.

It's nowhere near as Princy as Break It To Me.

 

Nah. This sounds like every Prince song ever, Break It To Me sounds like 20/20 era Justin Timberlake. Neither of those comments is a bad thing

I fail to concur :). Both songs are the tits.

 

They are the tits, I wasn't disagreeing there

 

What's everyone's take on the acoustic guitar solo? Would you have preferred a distorted Manson MBK1 humbucker tone on there or leave as is?

I think it's definintely very Princy!

 

I REALLLLY like the acoustic guitar solo, but I'm a sucker for slide guitar style solos anyway.

Decent verses, the sample is soooo clunky for such a big hook though - the acoustic version makes it really obvious there's nothing else going on musically during those sections.

Something about the acoustic version makes me think of Tusk, that brassy synth tone and bits of the arrangement - more so than Pressure that actually features the same marching band :/

 

It really doesn't sound like Prince though, a couple of very superficial similarities but that's all.

It is growing on me after the initial wtf..

The guitar solo is nice, and it works because the light guitar is featured throughout... but it's only just better than some rap group's bog standard garageband loop guitar they throw in now and again

I love it. Love the amount of slide guitar on the album (TDS Alternate version as well)

The solo is actually the only part I don't love. It's a bit too country sounding I guess? Would've preferred some crazy Kaoss pad stuff.

I absolutely LOATHE it. Have removed it from Spotify already.

 

C'mon, Blue, Matt didn't mean to offend you with that first word.

 

Right? At least he made a song about you, Floozy! :LOL:

To me, it's kind of an upgrade and Princy version of Madness.

The PRO-PRO-PRO are like the MA-MA-MA-MA

The verse melody is in the same pentatonic style..

Also quite the same singing style as SMBH but more Princy here.

 

Rather different but I like it !

That, and the “aah-aah-aah”s are such great little details. Also the descending backing vocals in the final chorus (eg. at 2:18 and 2:33)

 

 

 

Not to forget the wah guitar in verse 2 :cool:

Screw it. This might be the best song on the album....I think it is. Dang. Wow.

 

It's my favourite too, with BITM. I find them hilariously fun to listen.
