    This song is freakin awesome... all around a great song!

    Lyrics, structure, performance--all top notch stuff.

    I love that acoustic sound, the acoustic riffs sound sweet, and those vocal harmonies in the chorus are amazing!

    This song goes near the top of my list of good songs I have heard lately from anywhere, including radio, tv, etc.

    yes i wrote it, sang it, and played guitar on it. lawrence france (my music partner) collaborated with me on the arrangement.

    my good friend kurt smith played bass and aaron bertoglio played drums (they both kick ass incidentally [imho]).. lawrence france played the counterpuntal guitar part and sang some of the backup up harmonies.

    the tune was tracked to sonar 2.2 through 3 synched darla cards breaking out into a mackie 24x8. all signal processing was done post and outboard.

    the drums where submixed on a mackie 1402vlz and the kick was triggered thus the highly beefy bass thud you hear in the recording.

    the cut was "mastered" with sound forge 6.0.

    Both songs sound very professional. Great taste and great job. I love good harmony.

    What are some of the secrets of getting that studio quality? Do you like using baffling or have a sound treated room or both.

    It sounds like you have a lot of equipment there, and you know how to use it.

    What a great chorus! I love the snare sound too.

    Great stuff! I like the rhythm changes. The whole thing has a strong hook, without being too "radio." Very nice!

    Hmmm, I don't think the AM radio effect is necessary at the end.

    nice drums ...really nice..and the thudding kick drum too.

    the vocals seem almost too crispy to me.

    the chorus is very nice.

    the whole mix is very full and punchy and very radio ready, to me.

    only thing that stuck out was that kick drum. just didn't sound quite right to me.
