Great song! Very strong vox and guitar work. Rhythm section is awesome also. Don't worry about QuackComm and MeatEars (I'm actually complementing them), they couldn't hear the difference between utensils in the garbage disposal and a flute. There is obviously lots of cool syncopation going on with the bass and everything else. And that beat...listen to the intro. That's a very creative beat. It's rare to hear a beat you've never heard...that little bu-du-dle-boomp. But it's subtle enough that people who listen to chain saws won't pick up on it. Great job - song, performance, and production.

I can stand programmed music, but the creativity and the imagery that it conjures up got my vote. If hell was being locked up in a video game, this would definitely be the soundtrack.

Sunday, Sunday? That's like Nevada Dreaming, or Mr. Shaker Man, or Are you going to San Bernadino. Anyways, this is just plain old great music - for the sake of music. Melody because melody is beautiful. You seem to not give a rat's ass about being contemporary, cool, and hip. Thank God. It's really nice to hear great simple, truthful music played with such ease. Don't stop. (You didn't have to be so nice.)

Nice piece - cool textures. You may not be so inclined to change it up, do something to make it work in a pop/rock sense, but if you do, I look forward to hearing it.

Good song. I can see this song keeping it's simplicity and sounding great, but it does need more, even if it's real subtle. If you have to use the drum machine, at least program it so it changes up a bit more with the different sections. Hope to hear it in another incarnation.

Liked the verses. Choruses didn't work for me. The background vocal going minor might be cool if it had some more support. Or maybe going back and forth from minor to major, like Seal's "Don't Cry" does. Or something.

I love the tension/harmonics in the second line of the chorus you create when you move the chord up while keeping the melody essentially the same. It's a great texture. So few songwriters pay attention that kind of stuff, but in my book, that's the invisible stuff that is so important. Keep it up. Work on your performance fundamentals...especially your rhythm.

Good voice. Like it especially in the end of the verses when you take it up a few notches. The melody to the chorus is almost exactly like the la's in Clapton's "promises" (back when he wrote great stuff). And the word's...well...another Clapton song does come to mind. Possible regurgitation? It's impossible to avoid.

Great song, great playing and singing. Would love to hear it with a band!! You don't remind me of anyone.

Deece, If you just stay in that box for a while, that place that makes you feel like a mummy in the back seat with a hot chick (or dude, whatever), and stick it out for a couple of years, the box will melt away, deliquesce if I might, opening up a whole new world. The being in the moment and all that stuff comes back, but the expanded artillery with which to express yourself in that moment will leave you forever thankful.

Hey Queens, I did smile at your song...But not for very long. It's like the uncle who tells you the same joke everytime you see him. Enough is enough. And wierd is great, but you till have to keep the interest going, change some things up. Believe in me, while not weird, is a great example of changing things up and keeping the song interesting as it goes on. Terpsihire, or whatever it was called, is a much better song period. It made me smile. And you want wierd? #@&%!ed up? Sonically bizarre? The King of Kings, relegated to the cellar by the "crack" red fizz panel, blows everything here today away. Come on Fizz, get off the crack and start using your ears.

This blows everything out of the water. Orchestration/Arrangement, the way it builds and keeps interest, the form (it actually has a bridge), and the crazy and complex originality.

Listening...Nice whistle...Woe...What the #@&%!?...Atonality?...Nice layering/bringing in the instrumentation...Very trippy...This is #@&%!ed up...Rarely is atonality palettable, but it's very cool the way this winds back into tonality. Why the #@&%! is this in the cellar? These guys are stupid. What happened? Why the ending? Listening again...Solid players. I dig the broken down verse, then the bass comes in. Very cool the way it works together. 1st chorus maybe needs a little something - I don't think it's too early to bring the wild background vox that show up in the second chorus (cool dissonance on "me"). Oh my God - a bridge! What a #@&%!ing concept. Those aren't allowed here at Red Fizz. No wonder you're in the cellar. Who the hell played that guitar solo? Ronald McDonald in a primal scream therapy session? Cool organ with back vox. That last vocal yell gets off key, but other than that. Are you into jazz? Those chord progressions are great. I'd say the only thing that I think is somewhat lacking is the lead vocal, mostly in the choruses. The intro becoming the bridge (which then goes on it's own journey is a cool idea). This is very riveting. I'm actually drooling. Very complex but it #@&%!ing works. Definitely didn't notice how long it was. I'd change the title though. I thought it was either going to be some Christian bull#@&%! or some humility-less rap posturing ego crap. You are a troubled man, but you're doing something about it. The world needs to hear that. I'm going to complain. This blows everything out of the water. TRULY. No #@&%!ing comparison. These guys are novices. I know I'll catch a lot of #@&%!, but I'm a trained, professional musician, and it's obvious you are talented. These guys don't hear much. They don't hear all the parts and whether or not they are working together. I want to hear more of your stuff. I'm complaining.

This is a somewhat similar vibe but much better piece than the no democracy thing that made it to the 2nd stage. I don't understand these guys. Keep it up.

Listening...I could easily trance out, scream and cry to this. Musician ship needs a lot of work though...especially rhythmically/groove wise. Work on the fundamentals, and then record it with good gear and with an engineer (no, I didn't say producer) who has experience. Back in a moment...
