Having been heavily drugged since 9am this morning I am slowly regaining my faculties. I have transcribed my notes from Vocal Rush, Home Free, Voice Play and am in progress on SCR from last night.

Fortunately, tonight is a short episode with only 4 groups (I am assuming) So I should be able to get caught up by the end of tomorrow. Such is what happens when you slam 7-8 episodes into a two week period.

I’m curious what might make the reviews better. More detail, more background, more comparisons, or just leave it like it is.

Drop you opinions, we’ll go from there.

In the meantime I plan to stop funding air so fascinating by 8pm to take notes again.

Here’s the pre-review

In Your Eyes – Intro Production number

It’s really hard to mess up this 80s classic. I expect it to be full of love and tears.

 

Ten – Chain of Fools

Ten last episode took a step towards what they an do. This will assure us if they are on the path. A good choice for their style.

 

acoUstiKats – Amazed

This group has two speeds. Frat choir and new evolution in Acadameia a cappella. ┬áLet’s hope that yesterday’s USO reminded them we’d like more of the latter.

 

SCR – Forget You

I am especially surprised when they take modern music and attach it to their style. This could be a strong entry for them. Or likewise may show us that they are a one niche wonder.

 

The Filharmonic – One More Night

I’m going to assume Maroon 5 and not Phil Collins here. Once again, Filharmonic deep in the heart of their style. It was made clear that Stockman is watching for missing notes; so now they have got to get the technical as tight as the performance.

Thanks for keeping up. See you soon

imageApologies to my Armchair Director readers for this delay and topic switch.

On the way to my first appt. Just took my first Halcion. I’m told this should be a fun trip. The Valium from last night is wearing off. I’ve been told to fast so I’m psychologically very hungry.

The appointment is dental work. Today is simply impressions to decide if I’m going to require a dental implant or worse a denture. Normally impressions are a simple process but due to a horribly overactive gag reflex they have to knock me out.

Theoretically the Halcion will seriously impair me. I’ve never done “oral sedation” to this degree before. I was given Valium a decade or so back for LASIK.

20 minutes in, I’m not really feeling the Halcion at all. I’ll keep people posted. I’m curious to try to observe the effects. If it doesn’t take me down too hard, I hope to have my next Armchair Director post up before tonight’s episode.

More later!
