This song fails the ten second rule big time.

I did like the comment you made novafox in the beginning. It was constructive. I just hate the concept of the 10 second rule. The reason this song was featured was not because of our awesome studio sound, it's probably because of the song writing. We're just four guys trying to have a good time. We've never been too concerned with mistakes or speeding up.

I'm not making any excuses about the wrong song being posted. I am honored that this was featured. And I do like this song, even when it gets negative feedback. I'm glad it's up here.

I'm in alpine tanker 11 and I wrote this song. It was a mistaken post, we meant to post a different song. this song is called THROUGH SYLVANIA. I know it was said earlier but I just wanted to say it again.

1)Yeah it's poorly recorded.
2)The song is a blast to play live.
3)it is my humble opinion that this so called 10 second rule is just, uhh, dumb. We're not making jingles for TV.

I agree, it's all fun and games, and that's what my posts are in the first place, if they come off nasty. Sometimes it's fun to be nasty.

Anyhow, i agree, recording quality isn't always everything, but it does make some stuff a little easier to listen to.

some of you fellas are too stuck on recording and even, i daresay, technique. not that i prefer when a band can't play well--i usually reject posthumous music because while i like the songs, their playing is distracting. but unless a band is playing a style of music where production is absolutely key, like dance, these things are ultimately secondary. singme, i hear what you're saying about "actual emotions" but i think you have it kinda backwards; it's the emotions aroused in the listener that matter, not what the band is feeling. for all i care, the rolling stones are comprised of sociopaths; the fact is, their songs still make ME feel something, as does this one.

Ok, this is directed to singmetofire. Man, the only reason we screw with you so much is because you make it so damn fun. It's what makes this website so fun. This is a forum, aren't forums set up just for that reason, bashing other people without having to see them face to face. We're all hard asses with our tough typing fingers. I can tell you to F@ck off and go right back to being just as passive as I ever was before I told you to do so. It's just text man.

On that note, I know this song sounds like #@&%! I was there when we recorded it. I know it's too long, it wasn't supposed to be posted, it's the wrong song. I honestly can't believe it was featured. And yes, the mics we used to record probably did come from the bottom of someone's closet, or worse the front of my boombox. But if people are going to be that hung up on production quality reject the damn songs.

And that brings me to this, your songs. I listened to them all, yes it's not my thing, but that just means I probably won't buy a CD. Doesn't mean I wouldn't go to a show. I'd pay the cover to help you guys get to the next town. We know what it's like to spend 80 bucks in gas another 50 on beer to make 30 bucks to get home.

Frankly, even at low decibles and listening through the poor recording the playing is boring, song structure is boring, singing is mediocre, song is too long.

Now, come on, Nova; even you have to admit that half of understanding a review (and more than half the fun) is understanding where the reviewer is coming from. If that is, in fact, the case; then we all have to be prepared for a conversation just a little messier than the one you're advocating. We're going to be talking about the song, we're going to be talking about our tastes, and we're going to be talking about each other's tastes, and we're going to be talking about each other.

I'm sorry if you took my comment over-seriously--I mean, sure; I meant it as a jab at you, but not in a mean way. You have a method of reviewing songs that I think the site is richer for, and you are clearly respected by your fellow users for your even-handed method of reviewing, and your sharply defined form certainly communicates how you feel about a song, and the tools you are using to feel about a song, but we can't all be expected to follow this example; nor should we.

I know you're not advocating this either, but what I think you are actually saying is also a little strange--that we keep any and all comments not relating to the song out of the comment in which we actually vote (please correct me if I'm wrong). I mean, that seems a little arbitrary, don't you think?

You know, sometimes this site really pisses me off.
FIRST OF ALL, there are different teirs and levels of EVERY genre.
Yes, the whole posthardcore / screamo thing, has its own. Just as the whole "indie / retro" thing has them also.
I don't label "EVERYTHING" retro, but COMEON people.
I have EVERY #@&%!ING RIGHT to get JUST as annoyed with the fact that
interpool, the strokes, the vines, the von bondies, the yeah yeah yeahs, wolfmother, the white stripes, the bravery, the killers, ALL come out at the same time, milking the SAME TEET
As YOU have right, to get mad at the fact that
My checmical romance, story of the year, atreyu, hawthorne heights, etc...all come out, and YOU hate them. Point is, i like some of those "Retro" bands i listed, and i like some of those "Screamo" bands i listed, here's the thing.

When you realize that we all have our own tastes and whatnot, i think we can ALL agree, that YES, there is a little bit of a "retro" fad going on, just as much as there is a "Screamo" fad going on, WHAT THE #@&%! EVER.

Point is, SOME bands go out there, and they play the same exact chord progression, same exact drums, same exact what-the-#@&%!-ever some band already did before, and if you are a musician, you can hear it, and you can hear when a band MAY, SOUND like someone else, but is also just as redeaming in it's own right, For example, the success of Wolfmother over the Vines, someone who doesnt pay attention to this grene would say "It's all retro garbage" but people who know that genre will say "No no, there is A LOT different, you just don't HEAR it"

Well, i say this, CSS your a rotting vagina on wheels, you will always hate my, becuase im just a stupid young idiot. At least we have some sort of agreement.

As for this song, it's poorly recorded, has about as much energy as week old turd, and the same talent.

Say what you will about Nova's band, Or My #@&%!ing band for that matter, but at least we're working hard at portraying actual emotions, things we really, feel very passionate about.

So much so that we take it seriously, we want good recordings, so we can really make sure that feeling that we're trying to portray gets to the listener the right way, it MAY not be your cup of tea, But, you know that's fine.

Btw, which EMO band is it we sound like?

I think CSS shows great respect for the song, the artist, the community, and especially singtomefire; by taking the time and making the effort to refute singtomefire's comments--whether she is citing some sort of error in his reasoning, character, or brain tissue. What is the point of all this, if no discussion takes place?

It is simply folly to believe that singme is so important (to the music world in general) that his mention in the comment would somehow prove some universal point that needed to be made about this song and the genre it fits in.

This song is fine. It lacks verve, is a bit repetitive and runs long at 5 minutes plus, but I agree with qualcomm. the insticnts are there, and that counts for a lot. When you describe this music, and say bands like The White Stripes, as "retro indie garbage #@&%!" that means we may theoretically have to hire word engineers to invent new models to describe the god awful depths to which you and your croines navel gazing muzak is lowered to.

ah, don't listen to these jerks. it's sloppy, but your songwriting and instincts are still way better than most of the other musicians on this site.

So I just went and listened to all your tracks (Im extremely bored at work today!)
Guys, ANY money you make gigging NEEDS to be put into your recordings! This is your "buisness card"!! The recording quality hurts your overall sound tremendously. Get in a good studio with a good pro. You get what you pay for.

The guitars sound out of tune and your drummer sounds like a pair of sneakers in the dryer! USE A CLICK TRACK!

Not trying to be a dick in any way, just wanna give it to you in black and white. Dont get discouraged , get inspired! Keep plugging!!

hey thanks everyone for the comments.
one thing...i gave you the wrong song. i feel so bad.
sounds like this:
THROUGH SYLVANIA is the song i gave you to judge.
if you'll agree, APCO is a much more REDFIZZ worthy track; ie no long song development time, less #@&%!ty recording ect.
should i upload the right song or just dissapear for a while.
again, very sorry
-dan (alpine tanker 11)

ps.i love this site.

10 Sec Rule: Production is lousy. I see some potential here, let's see when the vocal starts where we stand...

The radio voice is ok, and the singer can do that ineffectual delivery thing. The song takes too long to get to the chorus and when it does it doesn't pay off for me.

Then when it comes back to "verse" the addition of the louder (more distorted) guitar doesn't add much for me. The vocal gets a little pitchy in the second verse and the addition (again) of the second voice makes this more obvious.

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

This gets:

1) 3 (Musicianship isn't bad, but I feel this could have been so much smoother)
2) 1 (Production is aweful, and all the "power" elements fell short due to tone)
3) 2 (Arrangement meandering, but with better production might have seemed ok)
4) 2 (The feel is damaged considerably by production, shame)
5) 2 (Lots of bands sound like this, in college bars)

Overall: 2

...."rock...." Sorry boys, there's an a priori law that a song with the line
"empirical lies" can't be called "rock" - as was the case with "sea of entropy".
Nevermind - it's a good song, a bit rough around the edges, but with a nice groove
and feel. Muy bien!

The song is very well done. The recording is a bit rough, but I like the overall structure and feel of the piece.
