Liner Notes: 

[@coolparidiso]'s skirmish prompt:
"THEME/PROMPT: The THE TRUTH no hiding the truth the truth will out tell me the truth whatever to do with truth" skirmishing hasn't gotten off to a good start - 50 something minutes over with this one.
I thought I was looking good when I glanced at my timer and saw 3 minutes left...then I realize I had no kind of structure.
Most of my time was spent arranging.

Took about 5 minutes to search out some vocal samples with the word "truth" in it. I knew I wanted some kind of preacher.
Found some and just started chopping and manipulating.
That took some time so I decided on very very simple drums and yet another dancey track. I feel like I take the easy way out by doing dance tracks for skirmishes because they require less effort with drums.
Anyway, I kept messing with layers and had something kinda ok, but that's when I realized i just a 16 bar loop and not a song.
Had to arrange, and that required more layers and elements. The whole time I wasn't really liking what I was hearing.
But...I had come so far, so I wasn't gonna just scrap the whole thing and call it quits.
Eh, it is what it is. Should NOT have taken me almost 2 hours to do this, though. That is disappointing.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Time spent well, it seems. This is cool. Great vocal samples and you use them very well. Good beat and I like your layers. I'm enjoying this a lot.

Are you kidding? This is exactly how they spout, hoping it will take, repetition upon repetition upon repetition of their ridiculous agenda/thought process/beliefs. And people believe it. I don't get that, but this song totally works.

Wow, this packs a lot with so few words, and quite a dance beat!

I'd say this ended up being worthwhile, there are a lot of cool things going on in this track. All the different sections flow together nice with the samples. I like that it went all over, it was a cool journey with a lot of sonic details.

I really like how you worked with the samples here! A more than worthwhile effort imho, even if you maybe didn't quite capture what you wanted, it works in its own right.

2 hours? Impressive how quickly you work.

Dude, it's a jam. I want to hear it louder.
edit: Oh, it's a skirmish. Still, sick that you did this in that amount of time.
