boygenuis: After listening to this on repeat a bunch, I think I can find a place for this in my collection.

ghengus23: great down dirty country rock feelin' from the start. Reminds me of social distortion. Not sure if...

i dig. great picking on that opening section. it's angsty, but not tooooo whiny. just whiny enough.

makes me think of Steppenwolf's born to be wild a little... not as epic, but still a rocking track.

it works best in a live setting. gets the ladies groovin and grindin'. i happen to think this is our best put together pop song... apparently nobody agrees with me.

thanks Nation. A 'studio' version is actually in the works. We've been focusing on our songwriting a lot recently and hopefully won't disappoint. thanks for the comments on this and our other songs everybody.

sorry PL, nothing melodic and that's what I happen to be partial to. can't bash the musicianship being as the rhythm is pretty tight. the synth stuff adds some nice color to a fairly bland riff. the vocals are a little too distorted for me to get much out of the lyrics. no melody or lyrics to relate to make the score lower. chalk it up to personal taste.

the voice is too lackadaysical for the music especially during the breaks. the intro and drum break made me want to like this more.

I like these guys for some reason. they've got a raw energy about them. this particular song deserves a little better than 3.5, but not 4 stars. It does kind of trail off at the end (he said trailing off at the end)....

I don't like the keyboard sound or the sound effects on the voice. They're distracting.

too bad the band is removing this song. it's pretty good. it's a little anti-climactic and doesn't seem to have dynamic range, but has a very full sound that's pleasing to the ear.

This is a weird song, but I like it. It deserves better than 3 stars for originality alone. I like the watery guitar

This is ok. As it goes on, it stops being as interesting as when I first hit play. Not enough variation for me.
