My God, I can't believe it. Shad rules. Another blockbuster donkey punch to the musical kidneys and the perfect followup to the previous release. The passage with the French Horns and oboe nearly brought me to tears-no #@&%!, but when the main theme kicks in after the drop: utter perfection. I vote Shad Everett Best New Fizz band. Can't wait to see what Jonathan writes on this one.

The piano is slightly askew due to a patented laudanum and cocaine infusion, but the player retains stoic sobriety. Patrons are cordially requested to remove their personal articles when exiting the theater. Thanks for the time slip, Jonny, you sentimental ol corn dodger. Nice crow.

Yes, scratch track for guitars and voice established when drums were multi mic'd and printed, then each subsequent part added separately. This is a common technique for those without isolation booths in fancy studios. We sometimes got stray bleed through on the drums mics, but masked the worst cases with other tracks. Maybe I shouldn't have quit drinking. Thanks for the remarks.

Liking that slide geetar and arpy synth. Kind of reminds me of Chris Squire vocals. Give em a Feature.

Challenge accepted. Next tune coming right up. Stars as symbolic accolades are appreciated, but honest commentary (good or bad) is most helpful. It entertains us to be occasionally goofy. Some folks laugh along-others bristle. Zappa often asked the musical question, 'does humor belong in music?'. All opinions are valid. Let us rawk on and support each other best we can.

Oh wow, our first Feature. I'm so proud. I just want to thank the members of the Fizz Academy, our manager-Fleece Damoney and of course, our Lord and Savior who made this magic moment possible. I'm sorry. I'm crying. I told myself I wasn't going to cry, but here I am weeping like a schoolgirl. Paul? Where's Remo? Paul and Remo come to the stage please. This is your time too. I just want to tell you guys, that through all the hard times of China Flower relegated to Second Stage, it was you two who pulled us right through the negative and out the other side. How can I forget how patiently ya'll were when my frickin head was spinning off somewhere, the moon maybe, but you two pulled me back to Earth. Now, the credit is yours. You know I how love you monkeys. And hugs and kisses to all our fans, cause we really did this all for them. God, I've embarrassed myself up here and I've embarrassed Paul and Remo, but it's the truth, dammit. Good night everybody. And thank you. Oh yea, thanks Mom and Dad. Almost forgot.

Noise and glitch provide cool textures but doesn't really go anywhere much.

Overly slick MIDI productions can make for a rather artificial and lifeless result. Resist the urge to tweak and refine away every natural nuance. Extra credit from me for carrying the Prog banner. Con some players in helping you realize your vision and savor the rewards of natural performer interplay who can breath life into this piece.

Simple pop song effective especially with pedal steel embellishment. I vote Feature.
