Vince Gill: Nothing Like A Guy Clark Song Review

By Michelle Lynn Tackett

The music industry is going through a phase were most artist gotta have auto tune for their voice and big production to hide mediocre songs. This is what makes artist like Vince Gill special. Vince gill doesn’t need auto tune or a big production. Give him a guitar and watch him go.

Lyrics

They are simple and paint a brilliant picture of an artist who misses one of his idols. The writing is brilliant with Vince singing like he is talking to people telling them a story. Lines like, “That work bench was a holy place.” Will stick with you long after the song is over.

Music

The music is very clean, beautiful and clean. This is the antithesis of what Nashville and 95% of the music industry does now. Vince has enough confidence in the brilliant lyrics he wrote, that he doesn’t need to hide nothing. Like one of his heroes Johnny Cash, Vince strips down to get to the human element of music and it is a sight to behold for your eyes and ears.

Singing

It’s Vince Gill. That’s all.

Final Thoughts

Nashville needs to hang it’s head in shame for not playing legends like this on the radio. Gill is doing some of his best work and it’s a dang shame Nashville is ignoring incredible artistic expression in favor of generic bro country. Gill’s mastery will be remembered long after bro country is dead.

Grade: A 96 A masterpiece of writing and music that will send chills up your spine. Take notes music industry. This is how you do music. Take notes and learn.

Nintendo and Square Save E3! E3 Review

I thought the E3 was ok, until late last night and today. Two legends Nintendo and Square destroyed it! Let’s rate their showcases.

Square: They started out with a bang with FF VII, and kept the hits coming. Final Fantasy 8 is finally coming! Oninaki, Avengers, new content for FF 14, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles and more info on Dragon Quest XI. The games kept coming, they went on about Avengers a little too long and we could’ve done without the mobile games, but oh well. This was a great show. Square, you are getting great again.

Grade: A

Nintendo: Oh dear lord. From the second this direct started with the hero from Dragon Quest, to Daemon X Machina, Link’s Awakening, Panzer Dragoon, A new Contra, Spyro, Witcher 3, Astral Chain, Animal Crossing, Banjo in Smash and the new sequel to the Legend of Zelda Breathe of the Wild. One great relieve after another. It didn’t stop! Nintendo edges out Square to earn the best of E3. Tons of games and lots of fun surprises. This is how you do it.

Grade: A+

Overall E3 Grade B+, a slow start, but a strong finish. Nintendo and Square bought the goods. Microsoft get’s third place. They had a good show, but Nintendo won the E3 easily. EA, Ubisoft and Bethesda, watch Nintendo, Microsoft and Square, that’s how you do it! The E3 is supposed to be about games. Show us the games please! Enough with this nonsense of mobile games and TV shows. Give the fans what they want to see, bad hype can ruin your momentum.

Best of the Show: Nintendo. Games, games and more games!

Worst: Ubisoft. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz wake me up when they show actual game play and some actual games.

Biggest Surprise: Panzer Dragoon remake!

Game of the Show: The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.
