    Dude, that's like a Spinal Tap freeform jazz odyssey!


    Pretty interesting. Not my thing, but I didn't want to stop listening. Sounds pretty good. The bass is a little loud or boomy. Maybe cut it back a little in the lows. Just messing around with it I pulled a little out around 125-250hz in the WMP and it cleaned up nicely on my setup. I think the drum samples are little busy too in some spots. A little too much filling and funking for my tastes, but no big deal. Overall it sounds good though. Nice creation.

    Fecking cool dude...are you gonna want to play this at FeastJam?

    This is one wild ride....reminds me of some of the stuff Shrapnel Records used to put out.

    I liked it

    I like it over all just found it a little boomy

    I just dropped the bass a little and found it nice to listen to

    but liked the sorta free flowing sound it had

    I enjoyed the track thanks for sharing it with us

    Thanks Greg. I'm noticing that too about the bass. I never can pick up on that in my place. One of these days I'll treat that damn room.

    And concerning the busy drums....hell I was starting to put a ridiculous fill in at like every other bar. I can get carried away with DFHS. Let's just say I was going for a Virgil Donati vibe.

    I know tunes like these are not for everybody. I've been listening to more and more out there fusion recently and I like to get wierd with stuff sometimes.

    Very Mr.Bunglesque. weird changing time signatures, groovy, rocking in parts. I dig it!

    I'm hooked. I like the drums because it's nothing I would have thought of myself...different is good here.

    I love the dreamy guitar melody/lead line. echo-y, verbed up,

    mix is good. I actually like the bass here, sounds good on my system as well as the cans.

    dude, you nailed mr. bungle to the wall here. are you roommates with Patton?

    cholo

    Thanks alot elcholo, I really appreciate the comments.
    Honestly, I never thought about Bungle while I was doing this - maybe I should have and I would have had some better ideas .

    no, because if you'd have thought of Bungle while writing this, you'd have ended up with some calliope, thrash metal speed guitars, midgets, clown ****, murder, wah-funk driven Morris Day and the Time style rhythm guitar, somewhere mention about an egg, weird mexican polka thingy...

    since college, Mr. Bungle has been the number 1 cause of my nightmares, followed 2nd by my fear of my kids dying.

    cholo
