Cipher_Peon;4790532 said:So like, I can imagine that this announcement will bring in a bunch of negativity, so I'll TRY to be positive. Because being positive and openminded is the new hatred and closeminded. I think.Anyway, here goes...Carrie Underwood Pack 01 First ImpressionsSo I'll listen to Before He Cheats because it's the least terrible name of the songs that are in the pack.Starts off kinda... I dunno. It doesn't sound really interesti- >_____________________>So much for trying to be positive! Her voice is just... Ugh! Totally dislike her voice. And then of course the obligatory truck lyrics reference. The harmonies work, but I just can't pay keep up because her vocals are taking way too much spotlight and the lyrics and vocals are just... bad. Really bad. The instruments are ok, but they don't really sound interesting enough to keep the song afloat. And the lyrics just get more and more embarassing to listen to ;_;Can't say the pack got off on a good start, which is unfortunate because I wanted to look for the silver lining or something.Good Girl is next! Starts off with a guitar intro that's shockingly interesting. And hey look they have a nice Private Eyes clapping segment. PRIVAAAAAATE EYES. THEY WATCHING YOU. PRIVATE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYES. Anyway, this song is a lot better than Before He Cheats. The vocals are a lot more engaging to listen to and has a nice variety to make it really interesting to listen to. And hey look, the song actually has some "heavier" parts to make the lighter parts more meaningful. Juxtaposition! It's not great, but it's pretty good. It's not probably going to be bought, but at least it has something keeping it from the bottom of the year in DLC. And is that a guitar solo? And after it, it's an instrument break! That's what I like hearing in songs. +10 Carrie Underwood.And now for Cowboy Casanova.Ugh... I hate anything to do with cowboys at all. Least favorite trope of characters. Anyway, here's the song!Starts off with a pretty uninteresting drum beat and then gets to harmonies that are pretty... ehh.And she went back to the terrible vocals. Actually, they aren't as bad as Before He Cheats. Or maybe I'm just getting used to it/standards are decreasing?!??!?!!? ;_;Yeah, her vocals for some reason change volume mid sentence which is distracting. The harmony chants don't work well at all, but at least they try to make the song interesting. But it's a shame where her vocals are taking the stage when she really can't sing well at all. Yeah, there's not as much variety in the vocals, especially considering the amount of spotlight it takes up. If you're going to focus on one aspect of a song, try to shake it up throughout the song because if you don't it starts to drag!This week overall...It was bad. Pretty bad. But it wasn't as bad as I expected it to be, especially considering I actually liked one of the songs. I really dislike her voice and think that the vocals take up too much of the spotlight when I would imagine that people would want to make her voice in the background and focus on the instruments. Oh well.In the grand scheme of things, it's better than the Men At Work/Santana week for sure. The exact placement of this week is still a bit iffy for me, but alright.This week in terms of songs:Good GirlCowboy CasanovaBefore He Cheats

peterock2007;4790543 said:Alright week, should be somewhat interesting.Hopefully watching the whiners should be entertaining enough to get me through my morning.
RockBandRocker;4790545 said:Kelly Clarkson's "Behind These Hazel Eyes"
rsm790;4790541 said:no way this is better than Santana/Men At Work week
GCracker;4790540 said:As I always say, it's called "Rock Band" and not "Country Band" for a reason...
Mycool;4790560 said:Congrats HMX, even though you were a couple of months late, this is definitely a way better April fools prank than that stupid board game trailer. And the fact that you waited until almost July really caught us all off guard, nice form! So what's the real ROCK announcement for all of us thousands of loyal ROCK fans waiting to play more ROCK music in our all-time favorite ROCK game titled ROCK BAND? There's no way a company can actually be this out of touch with their core customer base right?
RockBandand24Fanatic;4790544 said:I do too man, it seems like forever since we've gotten something older. Eddie Money I believe and that was almost two months ago. 2012 DLC has been very underwhelming...
Beeb;4790530 said:Wow, brilliant. It's rare that I actually roll my eyes at something that happened on the internet.[...]It's bad enough when it's just METUL METUL METUL HURR every week, but this is just terrible. The only song I'm gonna buy in the last 3 months is Owl CitySeriously, doesn't everyone want stuff like Muse (Even though I HATE Muse it would just be nice to see them finally ffs) or Radiohead, or more Fall Out Boy, just something, just SOMETHING MAYBE that isn't dire ****e.
