      Hung Overture is a song by Sledding With Tigers and appears as the fifth track on the band’s second album, The Hill Sheep. In the previous track on the record, Ten Fourty-Five, I noted that there were several sections where the instruments were actually completely empty from the track and that this allowed the vocal performance on the track to really take center stage.

      Hung Overture basically follows this formula, except the instruments are

      absent throughout the entire track rather than just in some sections.

      Because of this, a lot of responsibility is left up to the vocals on this track which unfortunately let me down.

      Although I wouldn’t say that Hung Overture is completely weak, it really just strikes me as filler material on the record.

      Although Sledding With Tigers could’ve taken more advantage of it by using it as a transition between the track to precede ...

      • and the track to follow, it simply doesn’t flow that well with the following track, Sick And Tired/Sick And Tired.

        In terms of sound, Hung Overture basically only features the chorus of voices heard throughout the rest of the album singing a few lines of repeating lyrics.

        Although I liked when the vocals took the spotlight on the preceding song, it becomes clear on Hung Overture that although the musical parts Sledding With Tigers have

        had on this record are simply, they are necessary to prevent the song from just falling apart.

        At the same time, I should add that the vocal melody the singers work with doesn’t give them much to start with anyway.

        Overall, although Hung Overture isn’t a terrible track, it certainly isn’t nearly as enjoyable as just about every other track on the record and just feels like mediocre transition material and filler for the album.
