The different vocals sound so very dissonant...this is weird, not that pleasant a listening experience...confusing.

I like what these guys are doin'. An Eddie Vedder-influenced vocal, good lyrics, good playing. Cool vibe.

This is a poor Goo Goo Dolls copy. The vocal is SOOO like them except off in many parts. The guitar is ok, and the drums are pretty good. The chorus almost works, but it is just derivative and struggles. That breakdown in the middle is not good (minor and too heavy for the song) and the solo just falls flat (mostly tone)...

Fix the vocal if you are going to do stuff like this, the only thing that saves the real Goo Gool Dolls is the lead singers voice.

1. Technical ability
2. Good tone choice
3. Playing the right part for the song
4. Feeling
5. Originality

This gets:

1) 2 (The drums and bass are at least working)
2) 2 (Recorded ok, and the tones are ok, but that solo tone sucked)
3) 2 (Song writing is weak, the chorus almost works till you realize what it is)
4) 1 (It makes me feel like turning it off, not good)
5) 0 (This is just too much a copy to give you anything)

Overall: 1.4

nice playing and vocals, and nice to listen to, but unmoving as a song, or unmemorable, skillful, it's just not easy to find an original hook to grab the mind...

too generic
In fact, not a new song at all. It's one of the older songs we have.
