Hi Douglas, I really liked the stripped back raw edge to this - part of me wanted maybe a hint more gravel in the lead vocal, but that's a minor crit. Loved the finish on the drum fill, classy touch.

Love it!  It reminded me a bit of some of the punk/new wave stuff coming out of the UK in the late '70's - early '80's.  Great lyrics and story!

I can't help myself, I'm always looking for ways to get in, get it done and get out; you know, I'm a three minute rocker.
I'll bet I could edit this one to about 3:15... 🙃

Love your stuff Doug.  You know how to fit all the accompanying bits together to make one great sound.

Great song as usual. Totally not a surprise there.

Mixwise, superior tones all around. Love that bass performance, so locked in the pocket with the drums, and you have mixed the AD2 drum kit very, very, very well! Guitar tones are clean yet gritty, perfect.

Your best pocket is in the chorus, and the pre-chorus. I think you might check the timing of the guitar that's playing that main riff, especially in the first half of the song. You might slide it back in time just a smidge, it might fit the groove better. As it is (check the first ten seconds) that lead guitar I think is coming in just a hair early.

In the first verse, for me, the vocals might be drug back a little as well, but the guitar stood out as early compared to the groove more often. Again, it's the guitar riff part - all of the rhythms and other lead noodles are waaaaay cool.

 

frickin' great tune.

cheers,

-Tom
