    heat seeking ghost of sex is one of the best tracks of the past few months. HIGHLY recommend it.

    on the PS3 side, caraphernelia and very busy people are both extremely fun

    Well I'll be jiggered. I didn't know the Limousines were in RBN. I'll have to get that on Tuesday. I'll also have to check if they've got anything else I've missed.

    Bleh.

    Unless Second Sucks ends up passing as Zemanator says, probably nothing for me. If anything, I'll get Paced Energy.

    Pff, nothing on PS3 worth getting, though I still have to look at the AD song.

    This Free Spirit track rocks on drums. It's completely different in style than their previous releases.

    Was kinda hoping for Myrath's Madness on the PS3 this week, but Willow of Tears has been on my wish list for a while too, what a great keys track. Moonlight Ride and Gymnop

    Nothing spectacular this week, except for Free Spirit, that I'll get with their other tracks I've left behind. RBN2.0 had great choices for me.

    For the 360, the Mystakin track is pretty cool.

    I think it's also pretty neat that 'Inspirational' has its own genre classification, even if in my case it mostly means it makes it easier for me to avoid those songs like the biblical plague. ;)

    I told you it wasnt going to be in the store update. it's been up on error 420 for hours

    EDIT: the double bass version still needs to pass

    I'll get the Free Spirit track, and I'll most likely eventually get the Brad Gerke song. The song by Mystakin is also a "probably".

    I find Rhythm Authors' songs pretty safe to buy early. I think Selkies was their first song to be pulled.

    Yes, they changed the album art so it's the same as the others.

    "well, it passed at like 10AM monday morning instead of sunday night, so it will hit the marketplace like an hour after the store gets updated"

    "Marketplace". Gah. I confused that with the actual in-game "marketplace".

    While i hate to stop sales for Fairwood, the Brad Gerke song is only 1 minute and (think) 45 seconds long. And its not much fun on keys.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I listened to it afterwards and I didn't like the song much anyways. I'm just always up for more alternative. But if what you say is true, I guess I'll pass.

    RBN needs more OK Go, The Shins and Band of Horses. And The Trews had better show up soon!

    Denbigh Cherry - "He Is Good"
    Denbigh Cherry - "My God Is There Controlling"
    Goliath Down - "Crazy Idea"
    Analogue Revolution feat. The Chance Sisters - "Looking (Foot in Your Mouth)"
    Mystakin - "The End of Progress"
    Free Spirit - "Easy Days"

    A really good week for me.

    I really like the inspirational songs. Nice to have those around for playing rock band parties at the church. :)

    Just when I was beginning to lose all interest in RB the RBN pulls off a save with some great inspirational music. Nice! Can't wait to get some MS points next week just for that. Wait a second. Does this mean non-Christian Rock is "uninspirational"? : )

    Yay! More Free Spirit on the PS3. Keep them coming, even if it's only 1 a week.

    Yea, when Kevin sent us his chart preview for consideration (it was a proxy track, we didn't directly author it) I was seriously like "...that's it? That's not the whole song, right?"

    But, eh, not the shortest song in our catalog, and if people actually want something quick it's there for them.

    That wouldn't even be the shortest official DLC song.

    Original Author here:

    It isn't the whole song. The original song is 3:15 or so, but the first 1:30 is noise that you can't play. (You can hear a little of it in the count-in) It's a lose-lose situation from an authoring standpoint. Either you're just waiting for noise to end, or you're getting a short song. I figured the latter was preferable, especially considering there are other songs that are shorter. As a PS3 user, I didn't really consider the demo thing until after the fact, since we don't get those.

    As for the keys not being very fun, I somewhat agree. Brad wrote the guitar and bass parts as well as did the singing. You may notice that all of those things are incredibly easy, so I kept that in mind when I made the drum parts and all of the synth and piano stuff. I wrote what I thought would be fun, but I couldn't ever test it since I don't have an Xbox 360. When I did eventually get to play it early through somewhat illegitimate means, I have to agree that the keys aren't fun, mostly because they're difficult in a sort of annoying way, at least until you are able to master them. I certainly think they make the song sound better, and they add much needed difficulty to an otherwise incredibly easy song.

    I don't know what to say to get you to buy this, or to not sound like an incredibly whiny self-entitled songwriter, but that's basically the story behind this song.
