Customer Reviews

Makes me read a lot more into syrupy pop songs

I LOVE dance music, however I generally threw away the majority of it as commercial hook. This podcast made me appreciate what makes that hook, melody, beat, whatever, so addictive and frames it in a way that my classically trained brain appreciates all the more. Just as a wish item, can we do a segment on breaking down some Kpop music given their rise in popularity in the U.S.?

Fast talker

The guy talks SO FAST it’s pretty annoying.

Love it

I knew nothing of music theory to begin with. The hosts make the information understandable and entertaining.
