boygenuis: After listening to this on repeat a bunch, I think I can find a place for this in my collection.

a little violent femsish, maybe lay off on the distortion on the vocals and lose the intro. intro wouldnt be bad going into a sepultura song but as said before does nothing for the song. not my style but not terrible so split decision.

I like it...it moves along in its own way. I like the vocal delivery and various vocal effects. The instrumental break is a nice touch...cool keyboard sounds. I think the length is just right. Good stuff. I'll download this and pour it over my brain at intervals...I may become an abandoned brainiac.

Leave 'em wanting more. I also agree you should cut the intro. It didn't seem to fit with the rest of the song. I reminded me of another song (sort of) and it wasn't up to the level of the rest of the song.

Those Flagrant Fragrance guys would be digging all over this groovy synth bass. MY favorite part of the song is most prominent on the last verse. I doubt it is a keyboard, more likely a guitar on the high notes. It sounds like the harmonic squeal of two pickups out of phase. The guitar was going more power chords near the end and you can count me as one who wanted it to keep going.

i'm with bratty. could have used a wicked solo, or another cool break-down or something. then again, there are worse offenses than having a short song.

wow. just as i was warming up to it, just as i was ready for the next thing to happen, it ended. i really liked the last change at around 2:10. i've never been a big fan of the lazy talkysing vocal style or whatever it's called which is why i don't usually say anything about it. i couldn't say whether or not it's appropriate for this song because it is what it is. i can say, however, that i wished it had gone on for another minute or so.

Get rid of the .22 second intro. It doesn't benefit the song in anyway. Actually it makes me want to turn it off.

But I'm glad I didn't, cause at .23 the song takes off. Everything after is great. I want this song just to flip on at .23 and rock away. Like a morning alarm clock that just comes on without warning and makes you hop outta bed and do some jumping jacks.

Love the guitar sound and the bass line. With the semi frentic guitar it would be nice to hear the drumming doing more to give it a bit more energy. Otherwise I like what is here

love the little guitar 'verse' at the end. fits the song better - do it more. squeaky guitars at the beginning really turned me off, especially after the neat keyboard riff.

Some interesting combinations here. The abrupt transitions are a neat idea that almost work. I don't care for distortion so I could do without the effects on the vocals.
I'd just let them come out crisp. Cool ideas.
