    Incanus on the bass and rhythm guitars.

    Drum mics were two C1000 overhead and a 57 on the kick and snare each.

    How's this mix?

    Wowsers!

    I liked the mix. the sound on the snare is great; the vocals are just too good; awesome job recording the bass; freakin' fun tunage! But did I hear some clipping during the chorus on the crash overheads? As pro as this sounds, I must be wrong!

    This one goes to my iPod...

    Supercreep...You guys are awesome. You don't put up your creations often enough, but they're always worth the wait. Man...I'd say the mix and production are top notch, this is as good as it gets, I can hear the time you put into the details. I'm sure there are things you aren't sure about, but that's probably because you're never happy.

    Arrangement wise, I'll tell you what happened here. Me and my girlfriend are here. I just clicked your link and didn't tell her what I was listening to, so she just thought I was playing a CD or whatever...We both had the same reaction to the song. We were floored...But with about 30 seconds left, I was about to say it and she said it first..."it's getting a bit repetitive"...It then faded out. So I think we both thought that it canuse a stronger ending. But that's about it.Great stuff again.

    Oh, this is crafty!! Sorta Beatles, sorta Tears For Fears, sorta a lot of things, but ultimately VERY original and fun!! Bombastic, brash, yet clinically tight and polished.

    Just a gallon or two of fun, gents!!!! I didn't mind the repetition at the end. Just a McCartney touch, ya know?

    Hey, the mix sounds excellent, love it.
    You guys are really cool, you sound back in time... which IMO is awesome.
    That lead guitar tone at 0:53 is great.
    Are you the singer Supercreep? Nice work.
    I love the psychedelic wah wah effect or something in the background as the song closes out... rocks!
    Tamberine is a good addition too.
    I usually try to help anybody out with suggestions, but got nothing on this one, sorry, just that it's great stuff

    Thanks everyone!! Very much!!!

    You guys are all at least a little forgiving!!

    This was our first original song we recorded after we set up our 'for real' home recording room. Over a year ago now, methinks. The excitement and fun of just getting going with this stuff on our own crept into this tune a bit. But it's a bit hard for me to listen to anymore as I was a very rusty guitar player at the time and now it sounds pretty sloppy to me here and there. I still love it though; Supercreep did a great job writing this. The only part that's mine, really, is the bass part--not enough to earn a song-writing credit I think. I'm just happy to have worked on it.

    I hear you, Rami, about the end/fade. There's actually a good 20-30 seconds more of 'usable' music we could fade out on, but it is a bit much. We just wanted to keep the little bass & drums thing that happens at the very, very end because we just love little bass & drums things so much!!!!!!

    Thanks again for lending your ears, folks!!

    I'm hearing new things each time I listen. This song reminds me of why it's so worth it focus on the details when working on a piece or listening to one.

    For instance during the first few seconds, the growly bass helps to sense, in a tactile way, the subject of the song before itís explained. At :50 there's a triplet wa-wa effect that launches the new guitar line of the coming phrase. At 1:37 there's a lyric hand-off between the main and BG vox that's a little similar in its technique - parts passing the foreground attention to one another. Very good arranging IMO the way the parts interrelate so strongly.
