    hey guys, I have a pretty nasty flu, so I decided to lay some vocals..

    my ears are fried because I just finished singing it 15 minutes ago..

    please rip it apart with extreme force.. I need a laugh..

    the lyrics are not ment to be taken literally.. I know there has to be a lot of mix problems, and I shouldnt be recording while I have a cold, but destroy it anyway..

    are the vocals out of key? is the bass too boomy? is it too low?

    thanks!

    This is Peter Gabriel meets Gary Numan meets Ozzy. If this is you with the flu, then I suggest you don't get better. I'm not going to comment on the mix, because I just listened to Guernica's song seven times and these are so different sonically; my ears are goofy right now. Funny how the same theme can be expressed so differently though. I love those big synth strings and the twisted bowel guitar lines.

    Are the posters in this forum (myself excluded) hidden geniuses or what?

    My overall feeling is that it should go on longer, which I think means that I loved it.

    Who the hell is Jennifer and why isn't she cooking you dinner right now?

    Wow,sounds GREAT Sam!
    Vocals and bass sounded fine,just right.

    I like the surfin drum beat,cool!
    This reminds me of some Beatles stuff,in a wierd way.
    I think it's the Jennifer passed line,makes the song.

    Most of the time when I hear this type of vocal,grunged I guess is the word,it get's old real fast.
    Not with your stuff,it's the perfect fit for the music.
    Vocals were the best part!

    Guitar playing is outstanding as usual!

    Another great tune,thanks!

    Pete

    BTW-Glad to hear she finally passed,hope your feelin better,(and your thumb too!)

    IT'S DRIVIN' ME NUTS!!! JENNIFEEEEEEERRRRR!

    Love it, as usual. Starting about 2:15, it's tough to make out some of the vox. Otherwise, perfect. I even love the "2 string" solo...

    chops; wish I had 'em.

    (you didn't kill her, did you?).

    Sam,
    Has the big production feel that is usually in your stuff!
    A little edgy.........even for you!
    Musically it is an experience, You cover alot of ground both in tempo, and sonically. I like the blend and you should be proud of this one.
    Mix wise about the only thing is I couldn't hear the kick drum enough, and the way this tune flows it SHOULD be "Bassy" IMVHO

    Maybe bring your voice out of the lofi for a verse, you have a ton of tricks up your sleeve......

    Actually.......just forget anything I say!!!
    This is really original!

    You get stars

    spoooooooky....... sounds like a few of the jennifer's I know...
    let me guess.. blonde?

    nice production. I don't know if nice is the right word... how about a "right on" production. The tune gave me the creeps, so I guess it worked.

    What kind of electronic drum kit do you use? What kind of synth? Excellent sounds. None of that factory pre-set cheesy poop. What kind of axe and rig? The tones fit perfectly... very sharp and piercing... by that I mean to my skin, not my ears.

    The vocals were very effective. Sickness can do wonders... I meant the flu, not your mind......

    cool tune-i like that synth sound-other worldly...drums sound kind of small during the first section-and a little less so during the fast part....maybe a bit of high end to the snare and kik? sounds like it could use high end across the board--but that could be my blown ears or whateva-wicked solo section-whats going on there? I have no idea...Vox sounded good-maybe that wash of synths was competeing with them a bit at times...anyway I like the tune alot-i listened to this about 12 times in a row! Love that guitar melody during the last verse section. Keep em comin.

    Hey Sam,
    Cool stuff. .......as i mentioned in the my first post.....very "you". Youve developed a distinct style for yourself and this one is true to it. And i agree w/ the post above.... the bullhorn vocal works w/ your stuff. ........nice work man.

    Nice tune. I like the mixing of the spacey/ambient sound with the surf/punk thing. I hear several different vocal influences in the tune, all of which I like, by the way.

    Hey this is my new favorite from you. I especially liked the "surfer" section.

    Pretty gruesome words, but some cool lyrics here and there. I didn't hear any key issues. Decent harmonies.

    Good job.
