00:09, Neuzd whispers: That "still alive" cover was just terrible. An awful display of bad taste.
00:10, Mingamango181 whispers: Which one?
00:14, Neuzd whispers: The one up there that Kristos linked to.
00:15, E_net4> Oh. Activity.
00:23, Cryoburner whispers: Oh wow... That is pretty bad.
00:25, Cryoburner couldn't listen to it, especially after skipping ahead to the "shoop a shoop" part.
07:04, Serpens> It almost sounds like it was made bad on purpose, but the description and comments suggest otherwise. I just don't understand it.
07:06, Serpens whispers: I just hope they never get around to arranging Touhou music
10:41, Mingamango181 whispers: Just listened to it. Or rather, attempted to. Leaves that bad taste in your mouth.
11:50, Kristos> There's plenty of out-of-tune notes. It's meant to be funny, but I think the musical style is just fine.
11:51, Kristos> It's not "bad", it's just "different". And some people like it, and some don't. Like any musical style. ;)
11:52, Kristos> I didn't expect it to be well received here, but I was at least hoping y'all would get a laugh out of it.
13:51, Speeder> Considering how caustic I am, I will avoid hearing it...
14:05, Cryoburner listened to it through now.
14:08, Cryoburner whispers: I think it's more than just 'out-of-tune notes'. The pacing seemed to drag on a bit too much, and the vocals were a bit flat, overall.
14:09, Cryoburner whispers: The genre-shifts seemed entirely out of place as well.
14:12, Neuzd> The arrangement as well. The softness and subtelty of the original are completely lost.
14:12, Cryoburner whispers: Overall, I'd say its a very mediocre rendition of a song that was well done to begin with.
14:13, Neuzd> For instance, why does every STILL ALIVE verse be so strongly marked?
14:14, Neuzd> I think when I said "bad taste", I found the right words to describe the large amount of things that have been done wrong.
14:15, Cryoburner> Yeah, I listened to a couple of that Student orchestra's other works, and they seemed a lot better.
16:07, Kristos> The genre-shift and the difference from the original are intentional. It's a fun rendition, probably not meant to go on your daily playlist.
16:07, Kristos> Probably meant to make you smile. And it made me smile.
16:28, Cryoburner whispers: But everyone else frowned. :(
