Incredibles - Re-Done

great guitar sound in the beginning. This song is great, I'm voting it feature. This is what I think would put it over the top:
The mix is too tight for rock and roll and no matter how hard you can rock a room the energy doesn't come across. Also if you're going for melody driven vokills you gotta get a melody that sticks or get some phrases that really pop out and catch a persons ear. So good song, good job, too neat and clean for my taste.

Nice song. I'd reconsider the low harmony part being added in "man"/"walk away", it's kindof bulky but thats nitpicky-ish. I swear I don't want to like this song (midi drums, simple lyrics, poppy) but it doesn't matter because I do. I'm glad you didn't try to drag it out into a 4 minute long song.

I don't think it's that impressive that you realize that the tea party is easy to mock.

if the blues noodling trend overtakes the 15 minute sequencer arrangement/1 hour cut and paste composition trend I'll be a happy guy.

I'm not a fan of big productions but if you are going to write and perform with a guitar sound and vocal approach so tied to big production you might as well go the whole 9. This may just be a distinct disadvantage to having your song taken out of context to the album. I've seen it happen

I always preferred MEZ's more manic bits and the super clean production hurts my heart. A solid noodle, no, an entire cup of fancy noodles, real home made noodles not that cup-uh-noodle. Still a noodle, but what a noodle and I didn't know you had this kind of noodle in yuh. I'm slightly disappointing that it turned out to be noodle rather than tapeworm though

Darby strikes back (AGAIN!) I wasn't alive for it so I'm glad I finally got to hear the charlies angels end credits theme in full. Nice composition though, seriously.

I'm not afraid of cymbals. As a matter of fact I'd say that in a song like this they might be valuable if they were loud enough to add some accents to the song rather than just wash in the background. I don't like the RHCP therefor I don't like the verse of this song becuase of that rythm and the inflection on your vocals. RHCP for the verse - LiVE for the chorus (anyone remember this band 'LiVE'?)
