This review covers the alternative rock track Spin Doctors – Two Princes.
This track was released in 1993 as a single.
The track starts with a drum kit. From there, the lead guitars come in. The vocals then come in for a verse.
The vocals take the track into the main chorus. This is capped off with a guitar solo.
After that, the vocals take the track back into the main chorus again. The vocals take the track into a verse. After that, the vocals take the track into the main chorus, but without guitars. From there, the main chorus repeats with the guitars and some variations of the lyrics.
In the next section, the vocals take the track into a pseudo verse with elements of the main chorus. From there, elements of the main chorus is repeated. After a while, the track just fades out.
One thing that this track has going for it is a reasonably catchy melody. Unfortunately, that’s all it is. It is a two bar melody that is largely repeating over and over and over again in different forms. Because of this loop pattern, it’s hard for a track like this to have any sort of staying power as you get your fill of it after one or two listens.
It does have a rather upbeat sound to it. Unfortunately, I got to the end of the track and had no idea what it was about.
Overall, this track has a some positives, but a number of pitfalls as well. While the main core melody is catchy, but it’s basically a melody stuck on loop in various forms throughout the whole thing. So, it doesn’t have much staying power. In the end, it is a decent track, but nothing too huge.
