Stand up, strap on and sing man. And so
he does. An Oasis feel to this songs structure. The band kicks
into gear and it feel.....right for what is happening. The
rhythm guitar could be toned down a bit...a litte heavier than
the feel of the song. The harmonies are good, strong and
appropriate. I'd like to see this band pull this off live...it
would sound really good. Effective writing and probably could
be tweeked to sweeten the sounds more, but overall a good
offering. Best of luck.

Sounds like Great
A track full of great
feelings. Well mixed! the recordings a bit raw but you know
this makes it sound so much more intresting for me so well
done on a great tune. Great vocals
-Caldertree_1 from United Kingdom
Catchy changes - great harmonies.
change when the rest of the band comes in is really cool. At
first The vocals seemed too hot. But the vocals are in tune
and nicely supported. All in all I think the song just lacks a
solo (maybe guitar or synth) I kept hearing one in my head
when I was listening to this song.

There is also one thing that brings
me down too, I like the chorus and I like how it builds up
from the beginning. A little Ben Folds harmonies.

Gimmie some mo'
The only thing that I
can say about this song is that it is what it is. An extreme
vocal performance, pop lyrics, and catchy guitar riffs. Even
though it's pop music i still look for new and original
elements just to make the production process challenging. Good
effort here but Go deeper next time.

greenday meets the beatles...sorta
This is an interesting amalgam of influences...i like the
greenday punk attitude. i like the early beatle-esque melody
of the chorus. As far as production, things could be a little
tighter. Vocals are a touch pitchy...but who cares really...it
works as is.
- RubberBiscuit from New York
your guitar it sounds better
better then all the
songs i have heard on this site so far not to bad keep
- KillTheCat from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Day strikes again!
This song reminds me a lot of
greenday (the band),the singer,especially on the intro..Nice
intro by the way.
The melody needs some work
though,because it continues to be the same before and after
the intro and it doesn't change much on the refrain (chorus).
Production sounds pretty good and descend,nothing superWOW,but
a normal-sounding recording that could easily stick out (you
don't need something more in my opinion on the production).
Vocals needs a little work because the singer is a little
off here and there in some small parts that in a live
perfomance would be great and super (no one would notice) but
in the recording the fact that you can do it again and again
gives you the advantage (and requirement) at the same time
that vocals must not loose their consistency..but hey,if thats
your style eliminate the last comment..
Overall nice song
drom a band with some potential..
- Violet_band from Athens, Greece
song makes me "Happy"
a fine example of joyous
pop-punk power.I LOVED IT.A simple raw guitar intro,heartfelt
"live from the garage" lead vocal,and then these big rawkin'
drums and guitars bust the
door down.The guitar chord
progression was a step up from the usual thing heard,melodic
and tight.Good harmony vocals too.The lead guitarist in me
would have played a brief solo in there somewhere but don't
sweat it,it's fine without one.20 years from now this song
will be featured in a "NUGGETTS" box set.Rock on guys.

is dangerously okay music...
... you know why?
Because it's dangerously easy to make songs that are just ok,
nothing too shiny. For example, one wouldn't remember this
particular song for too long time after a single listening.
If you make power pop, the melody should be always
hooky enough to hit right away - this song slightly manages
NOT to hit that level, unfortunately.
But don't worry,
if you have listeners who keep on rotating this track a couple
of times - they will get hooked for sure! You know why?
Because of the following three points - the three key
strenghts of this song:
(1) The start of the song at
0:38 is so brilliant - after a solo intro, the great melody
kicks in with the whole band, and with those fantastic
harmonies!! Sounds so good! This trick is an old one in power
pop, and in any guitar-driven music. But it always works!
(2) The harmony Oo-oo-oo's in last verse! It sounds
like you get more and more harmonies all the time! I love
(3) You stop when it's not too late! Short
songs are always better than long songs, 2:35 is a great
lenght for a pop song! Great!
- O_K from
London/Uk Ylivieska/Finland, Finland
the singer sounds very animated from
the beginning in this midtempo "power pop" song. whiny, silly
vocal that you will embrace or hate. the song sounds like a
weaker version of blink 182 or bowling for soup. traditional
power chord progression- everyone else following by the
numbers. your basic guitar, bass and drum set up that is doing
nothing special at all. generic.

Brooklyn, New York
I REALY want to meat this singer
his voice is sooow amasing
- Dixie_didden from Belgium
but needs some work
Sound very simular to Green
Day. Vocals get off key a little through out the song. The mix
is pretty good. You got a good guitar sound and all the
instruments fit together well, but the vocals need some
- Super_Heromusic from Layton, Utah
not bad att all. i like the vocals
and the guitars.. so moody and this band can be a great power
- drop_in_69 from Bandung, West Java, Indonesia
I like the mood of this song. The vocal
intonation is off at a couple parts but they are still good.
The song has a good hook and nice guitar sound. This reminds
me of weezer which is a really good thing.
- bradlebakken from Unspecified
I like the way you dip in and
out of key with the guitar work, the vocals suffer a little
for that though.
The song has teeth, its got a nice
The productions a little muddy and i think
with a good producer messing with the vocals this could be
Nice catchy song.
- hustlerband from London, United Kingdom
I like the guitar. Vocals could use
some cleaning up. Keep working on it, has very much
- truth_betold from North Merrick, New York
Very reminiscent of Green Day(and
many other American power pop/punk bands).
from the outset that this isn`t one of my favourite types of
music so it`s difficult to give an objective review.
The vocals are ok without being anything outstanding.
The lone guitar sounds a bit out of tune in places but
that doesn`t detract too much from the overall feel.
When the rest of the band comes in the whole thing
rocks along quite well. The chorus is reasonably catchy with a
decent hook. I can imagine the song going down well live.
Lyrically it`s a bit corny and cliched and doesn`t say
anything new but then again, not many songs do.
Overall, ok but not my cup of tea.
- andyjack from London, United Kingdom
I like the beginning guitar groove... I'm getting a bit of a old school punk feel from the vox. I find this song to be very original. Good love song rock anthem! I can hear this song on some sort of alternative rock station. I'm getting a Weezer vibe. catchy. nice job! cheers
- mikastasio from
Astoria, New York
A bit more work guys...
The song is catchy...It needs to have more dynamics and play with the harmonies more as far as the vocals. Background vox are good. Production quality is good.
- Sadalites from
San Antonio, Texas
good pitch for the vocalist. good harmonies, yet very common in power pop. great transition from intro to heavier part. cool pauses. good drummer. the lyrics are a bit to emo for me. keep up the good work. and great recording quality
- thefollowers2004 from
Well, right off the bat, I can tell you that the Laguna Beach crowd will love this song. It's got that gushy, sappy, punk feel to it.
That being said, it doesn't sound any different from anything out there on the radio right now, so if the band was trying to be formulaic, then they have achieved that.
THAT being said....the singer has great vocal ability. He's in key, on top of his notes, and sings with feeling.
The band played well, guitars are the focal point. Again, nothing that I haven't already heard, but I can hear this on the radio.
- SexyCherri from
lyrics are cliche, but damn the vocals are great! needs a better recording and mix..well put together and arranged. while i am not a big fan of the lyrics, they are pretty catchy and memorable in the hook, not bad. good harmonies, really make the song better.
- dodgingAugust from
Indie pop wondercream!!
Great guitar sounds. Irritating song structure and vocals but great big gobs of guitar make it all compelling in the end I suppose.
- louisbanthony from
i like the track, it does sound like a cover, maybe something from the sixties like the monkeys,
it cool i think if you took a different take it would be just smooth! but that's my take on it and who am i?
- livinwithjack from
Mount Juliet, Tennessee
This song makes me happy
Very good melody. That strong rhythm guitar creates a good hard rock mood.The singer put a lot of emotion into this uptempo rock love ballad. The music reminds me of Green Day. The vocalist is excellant and sounds a little like Al Yankovic but the emotional lyrics makes the audience take the song very seriously.
