You know what would have been a really awesome pack? The original versions of these songs.

Righty, I don't think I'm breaking hearts by saying these picks are kind of bad.

50% of the pack is great, but after seeing the Seether chart I'm willing to go 75

Goldfinger's cover of 99 Red Balloons is a blast, I'm stoked to see that (I do like the original too, and honestly probably would have been happiest if the pack was just 90's punk covers). The rest I'll wait until the preview video, I enjoy the original versions of Tainted Love and Careless Whisper but don't care for the bands covering them most of the time, so we'll see! Don't worry, I'll keep you up-to-date with the news about my feelings about this pack.

(that's actually not fair because i didn't ramble about a lot of other covers i'd want because i'd want a full pack of the band and beebs and her moneymakers is the same boat but i had that stuck in my head thinkin' about covers so there it is)

I picked up 99 Red Balloons, will probably pick up Careless Whisper and Bad Romance when they're on sale, maybe sooner if I end up in those tunings any time soon which might be comin' up as I catch up on slowly adding star ratings to every piece of Rocksmith DLC I own here. (Tainted Love just doesn't sound my speed so I couldn't convince myself to pick it up for even the extra buck)

Given I only picked up one song, I'll try my hand at actual decent length reviewing it, which is my intention after I play through everything again anyway. SO:

99 Red Balloons
Lead: Much of the song is built around the same four chords, though clever changing between power and barre chord versions of them and varying on the strumming pattern keeps it passably engaging, in addition to moving it up an octave a couple times later in the song (and playing one of them as an octave with a fun dead note pattern just after the intro). The other areas are two mostly single-note riffs that come up a couple times through the song. Both keep you in you the same fretboard location as the beginning or the end of the chord pattern, but they have good moment between frets in that place and string movement. One variates heavily right before the outro equating to a simple but enjoyable solo, and a few pick slides give some nice change up in chord sections. Very enjoyable chart. 8/10

Bass: Doesn't start strong as it follows the guitar with sustained root notes, but as soon as the feel changes the bass demands attention with accents and pop. It plays along with guitar through one of the riffs, and variates on strum pattern following the root notes just as guitar. Toward the end of the song it throws in some variations based on hammer-ons and tremolo picking. The chart is probably as enjoyable on bass as it is on lead, but I usually give a bit more leeway on rating bass due to a lot of songs not focusing it at all so it's a 9/10.
