Animal Tropical - Fusing the wry and witty songcraft perfected by Steely Dan with tropicalia, rock, Animal Tropical's sound is super-danceable and, for all its quirkiness, goes over big with booty shakers of all colors, creed, and class.

I dig the tune. The music reminds me a bit of the new group Dr. Dog, which is kind of like saying it reminds me of an amaglamation of some 70's tunes. The whistle is a little loud in the beginning. The vocals are good but I think what people are referring to is that the enunciation is a little blurred. It sounds like the singer has gauze in the mouth. This isn't necessary a bad thing but I think that a bit more clarity would allow the listener to have a central thing to grab onto. As it stands there's so many things competing for your attention that you can get audibly lost in there.

It's a great one though.

I can't say that the vocals themselves bothered me as much as the fact that the different vocal tracks tended to make it into a bit of a jumbled mess. It's a very "busy" song - and I'm not generally big on busy songs. This is no exception.

In some ways it struck me as a parody of 10CC - who were big on parody themselves. Nice tight playing, though and a clean recording.

huh? What the #@&%! was that? Cool though, the breathiness of the vocals doen't anoy me, in fact it's a style i prefere, but your phrasing could use a little more clarity.

the intro and instrumental parts of this song are great... until you started singing i thought, man, this song will help take them somewhere... there is a really cool song here, but, in my opinion anyway, it's totally defeated by the vocals. i think the voices are fine, really like the tones and notes you hit, but the lyrics are slurred and mumbed in a breathy sort of style that quickly becomes irritating... and keeps me from enjoying the tune. i have headphones on so that usually helps, but not here. i like what you're going for, but what's the point in singing words if your listener can't make out the words? as an instrumental track, really really nice, better than average...

i agree with aaron. this song, and most of your others, would be better served by an early 60s motownish voice. or a john fogerty thing.
