    So here's Cinderella! Huh. What a weird name for a band. Anyway!

    Cinderella Pack 01 First Impressions:

    Nobody's Fool! Quite a contrast from Everybody's Fool a few weeks back, eh? :p
    Anyway the song starts off soft and silenty, which is weird. Hmmmm...
    The guitar isn't too shocking, it's pretty basic and repetitive. And here comes the vocalist! His voice is alright, I guess. Nothing too out there or revolutionary. Alright, it's picking up! The harmonies are nice but... THEY'RE TOO SOFT :I
    Sure the song is a pretty soft song, but I can imagine it would be infinitely times better if they just put some OOMPH into every note they play and word they sing. I mean not artificially raise the volume, like raising it on my laptop. They really need to kick it to 11 to kick some ass. And there's the guitar solo... Just like the rest of the song it's pretty soft and afraid. ARGH, COME ON! THERE'S POTENTIAL! And... That's it? Is it just me or is the song really short? Or does it end abruptly :I

    Anyway, next up is Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)! Starts off with some pretty nice keys that I can totally dig. And the vocals kick in! And they're pretty nice! Unlike the first song, this song works well with the whole soft thing. The atmosphere doesn't feel like a giant contradiction on itself. Totally reminds me of Alone by Heart. And I kinda like that song.
    The vocals are nice and plenty, the lyrics aren't half bad, and the whole feel just feels... good! Too bad it sounds like it'll be boring to play, because it's a pretty good song. It is pretty repetitive, unfortunately. It needs something to shake it up!
    It also kinda reminds me of Every Rose Has Its Thorn. But it's not bad like Every Rose is. The lyrics aren't atrocious for one, and the atmosphere is diggable. Just like I said before, it reminds me of Alone even more than it does Every Rose.
    And the guitar starts picking up! It actually had some pretty nice buildup to it. Which is awesome. It makes the song feel more refreshing and pleasing to listen to. Don't think I'll buy it, but it's good.

    Shelter Me is last up!
    Starts off... pretty strange! The guitar is nic... UGH! THE VOCALS! WHAT HAPPENED??!?!?!?!?
    His voice was pretty decent in the first song and good in the second, but they just completely imploded the third. Which is unfortunate, since the instruments sound nice and fun. Ugh. Wasted potential :I
    The instruments keep getting better! BUT NO MATTER HOW GOOD THEY GET, IT'S JUST GOING TO MAKE ME MORE SAD SINCE THE VOCALS ARE JUST THAT BAD ;_;
    If the song was sung in the voice of the second song, it would be absolutely amazing. The feel is just great. But it's rubbish with the vocal. And now they have a sax having fun and THE GUITARS ARE BEING SO COOL ;__________________;
    Why?!? Why must you torture me so?!?!? The rest of the song warrants me listening to it in the future to get over the vocals. But god damn. They're bad. Really bad.

    All in all... This week is... ok? I think? I 'unno. The tracks were pretty decent and good, but they aren't my thing at the moment. I do picture myself enjoying it in the future, so I won't write it off as a waste. In context of the other weeks, I'll say it's a slightly weaker P!nk week.

    This week in terms of songs:
    Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)
    Shelter Me
    Nobody's Fool

    If you're surprised, I would much rather pick a song that isn't afraid of doing something badly than a song that is afraid to go outside and trip over their shoes.

    Not really a fan of this particular band, but of course it's nice for the hail metal fans.

    It is. This niche has been long-suffering a bit. Nice to give them some crumbs every now and then so they don't burn the place down.

    Hmm, the only one I've heard is "Don't Know What You Got Till It's Gone." I'll listen to the others at some point.

    Then again, Don't Know What You Got (Til It's Gone) may be great, just to remember all those cheesy movies that use the song. Oh, and South Park :P

    Interesting. I didn't really care that much for Cinderella...but I do like, "Dont Know What You've Got Till It's Gone"....so I will at least be getting that.

    When I saw the name Cinderella, I was in so much shock that I was sure there had to be another band of that name. This is a complete and welcome shocker! :)

    I imagine a lot of people are gonna be having a "oh, THESE guys" moment.

    Whether that will be followed with a pleasant or entirely unpleasant reaction will probably wildly vary.

    None of these songs sound familiar, will have to listen to the preview to see what I think, because I do enjoy me some hair metal from time to time

    Yep, an obvious-in-hindsight name that I don't think a lot of people were anticipating at all.

    And fun fact, they're still touring. Their last studio album was 18 years ago, but still touring.

    Is this what I would have really really wanted? Not even close.

    But did just reading the titles of those songs cause them to start playing in my head, like echoes of a misspent youth? Yep.

    So is this better in my view than any HMX DLC in the past month? Oh hell yes. Will buy day 1.
  • edited April 2012
    Not my favorite but much better then the last 4 weeks. I'm definitely get Don't Know What You Got (Til Its Gone)

    HMX, you need to fix the year that Long Cold Winter came out. It was in 1988 not 1998 :)

    Hmm. Depends on the drum charts.

    Does anyone remember that one really...ahem, vocal forumgoer with the Detroit Lions avatar a few years ago who only listened to hair metal? Bet he's happy.

    This is hilarious.

    Getting all three of course :-D Two unbelievably cheesy power ballads, and Shelter Me is just over the top. I'm 13 again :-D

    Time to bust out that keyboard!

    All over this pack. Could have used a little Gypsy Road, but that's all right HMX. You done good!

    Yeah, Dog about summed up my reaction as well. May concider picking up Nobody's Fool purely for nastalgia sake, but even that's a long shot. Congrats to Cinerella and hair metal fans everywhere, though!


    (grammatically speaking, Nobody Is Fool? Really? Is that, um, an inside joke? I don't remember the song well enough to determine.)
