|So Far Away
Genre: Pop Rock
Reminiscent of the early Beatles, the
vocals are a cross of "Twist and Shout" and any punk singer(ie
Green Day) with that "sneer" quality to his delivery. Well
constructed and arranged, I could see this track ending up on
a soundtrack of a National Lampoon movie.

Here we go, Gig-tastic stuff
I bet the girls just love this! Gig-tastic stuff. Teen Rock/pop - "Like a holiday, whenever you come to town"
Energy, guitar, sweat, drummers wearing no shirt, if nobody stage dives I'll be pissed, and the singer should really leap from the speakers during the solo.
I had a good time too!
- nigelnisbet from Studio City, California
I am reminded of "no matter what you do" by Badfinger...done more punk though.
The guitar is real hard rockin with good tone.
There are vocal harmonies throughout, that makes it enjoyable.
The sound is a little muddy, thats the only bad thing I can say.
- Myblues from Grand Rapids, Michigan
feel good song
good job, im from o.c and this music is whats hot right now. deff, in the local sceen. i dig how you guys start right away and dont make us wait for half the song to roll on by before the vocals come in... the guitars sound great good tone. all the music was clear. easy to listen to. the singer sounds great. not trying to hard. not showboating. thats never a good thing... over all i give it a 9 out of ten.. the girls are going to love it...
i feel the energy this song puts
out, singer seems to love what he does, the whole band is just
really together, harmonies are great, good song
- lee_ramirez7 from Victoria, Texas
Rock my pyjamas this band has
turned it up to eleven. My speakers a trembling. Nice backing
vocals.Its nice to have some energy. The production levels are
very good.I can just picture the video now.Heads moving. Lead
break is okay maybe loses a litTle of the energy when maybe it
should raise the bar a little more with the rest of the band.
Or go a little left field and suprize the hell out of us. At
the moment its just their.
But yeah this is cool. Good
timing 3.20 great for Radio. This song doesnt sound likt its
your best and I'm sure you could really come up with something
special, you have the talent!
- Ammp from
Beatles On Steriods
Love this style!
Perfect power pop -- roaring guitars, catchy melodies,
brilliant harmonies. Great, head-bobbing beat. Cool guitar
solo (with harmonies). The production sounds heavy and modern,
yet captures elements great old 60's recordings too. Actually,
I think this is what the Beatles would sound like on
steroids...and I guess that means steriods CAN be a good
thing. P.S. - The song just ended, and the "here we go" hook
is stuck in my head. That says "hit" to me...
- StevenNYC from New York
we go....Great Power pop!
This is a great song
and I'm getting it. I like the way the lyrics are written, the
structure is very solid and it's fun and upbeat...we can beat
the world! Amazing that this is a break up song??? Love the
solo, very simple, tone is great! This could be the sound
track for a movie, great pop/punk vocals with a movie theme
type message...somebody sign these guys!
- C5quared from Houston, Texas
What a rush of pop n roll! From the first
crack of the snare I was riveted. British invasion vocals with
a modern punk spice,big Bonham drums,a wall of guitars that
would make Rick Neilson gush with pride,hooks that scream "HIT
RECORD!",and a goofy twin guitar solo!You're on your way.
harrygore from Richmond, Virginia
Beatles 21st century style
I love the
vocals on this. They are very reminiscent of the Beatles.
Harmony is great and the lead vocalist sings just on the edge
matching the band perfectly. The lyrics start out strong, but
then become a too repetitive for me. I had trouble finding the
chorus and bridge. Was it "here we go"or "goodbye little
girl?" The guitar and drums are awesome, but during the rif
before the last verse I lost the bass and heard a lot of
repetition. I'd love to hear this song again after you have
worked on it. Stay with it, you are definitely on to
- alicebishop from Dfw, Texas
I like the vocalist's angry sort of
vibe as he sings a love song....I think that's what makes this
song interesting. Definitely has a captivating vibe... nice
- NYCO from Chicago, Illinois
Bouncy and energetic
The song fairly
blasts out the speakers at you, in a bright and energetic
It is a bombastic rock song favoured by bands
such as sum 41, foo fighters etc.
THe musicians all
play their instruments servicing the song rather than
providing flashy fills or riffs culminating in a good solo.
The production is clean and I can hear all the thuds,
rythmn and chord changes.
Now to the song I feel it is
a bit one dimensional, there is not a lot of variation between
the verses and chorus. It needs a bit of diversity to make the
song more appealing.
THe vocalist has a nice raspy
voice that is suited tot his type of music.
good song and Im sure they have stronger material.
- bigclaw from
London, Lancashire, United Kingdom
For some reason i can picture
Sesame Street puppets dancing to this song lol Its loud but
not intimidating at all.Music is tight and i love the piano
sounding guitar solos.Wish i knew what gear and effects are
being used to create that sound.Cool fun song
- shane_jaggard from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Ok, we all know it's
formulaic writing and last time I checked---it's what's now in
modern music. These guys studied the book of modern
songwriting and got good grades. They execute by the book and
that unfortunately means they're definitely not original in
their thinking. But, the good news is...they could play on the
same stage with any of these signed bands and hold their own.
Hey if it's not broke....you know the rest. Hoo raa.
- BCPriest from Tucson, Arizona
Good rythm, with terrific bass and
Lyrics average. Yet it is reminiscent of
The Beatles in that the song captures a feeling of innocence.
Overall, the production balance is in place with
strong melodic hook. Melody can be heard well as it weaves
through the rythm sections.
- jemmuzik from Los Angeles, California
The rhythm guitar sounds pretty
good (maybe use some variety in effects for some diversity).
The song has a good beat. I think the song wouldn't be too bad
after a little more work. I wouldn't mind listening to it
- robpitts_99 from Gautier, Mississippi
Very cool jam out song. Great
pop-punk sound to it. It is very fun to listen to and the
vocals are very cool.
- ABCatastrophe from Dyess Afb, Texas
i get it not a bad gig a tight
band everybody seems to be on there game
- jwolos from
Rochester Hills, Michigan
Energetic, sunny feel--in that post green
day kind of way. Strong danceable feel, okay melody; vocals
don't get in the way. Drums strong; not very original, but
does that matter?
- cstroffo from Unspecified
Holidays are always good!
could be sung a little more, not screamed. And deffinently
some backup vocals would help. The lyrics are very original.
The individual parts hold there own, not to much of one thing.
The guitar solo impressed us as a whole.
- Karbonkutt from Clyde, Ohio
good beat good vocal nice upbeat song good
melody keep up the good work you should do good
- KillTheCat from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The theme is a little too generic - not
much to grab the listener emotionally. The music is pretty
tight. Decent tones on the instruments and the vocals.
Harmonies are occasionally a little off pitch, nothing
terrible for the style, though. Catchy melody. Overall, I'd
give it a B-.
- thesequels from Cincinnati, Ohio
The fun starts right from the
beginning. Production is excellent. Snappy beat that holds
your attention. I actually understood the lyrics. Vocals are
clear and powerful. Congratulations. Keep up the good work.
The strings arrangements are one of the best that I have had
the opportunity to listen and rate. Lead guitar ----- Rocks. I
thought this song was great. Write more music like this and
you are on your way.
- cyber1369 from San Diego, California
Where's the change?
Really good energy
but the song didn't change enough for me. The guitar sound was
very good but it remained the same with very similar chords
all the way through.
The main idea is good but with
some form of change in the middle or just some kind of break
from the same pattern then that idea would come back in with a
lot more force..
The Intro is good + brings you right
into the song very quickly. I'd probably hold back a bit in
the verse so the chorus comes in stronger in
- JulesLopez from London, United Kingdom
i like the sound. its mix between suicide
machines and goldfinger. i like the lyrics. kindve
anti-realationship. very original. keep up the good work. hope
this was review was useful. rock on.
- mainstreetminority from Chicago, Illinois
The song has good energy, but
there was not alot of variation in the melody. Most bands that
do well in this post-punk kinda genre have sick melodies. The
song could use some of that variety.
- wushu from
Toms River, New Jersey
Good song which i think it would sound
even better live.
Some few changes will make it a killer
track!Well,lets not say changes(kind of scary!)but
The vocals is good for this kind of music and
with more practise you can add a little more melody in the
endings of the words.
The guitar could have a very small
change in the sound(a little less distortion maybe or a
flanger fx).No need to change the melody,it's very good.The
only part that you can use more fantasy is the solo.Not
something complicated(a bend or a slide,a few more notes).
Drums sound good and you can use a little more imagination
Put a few more work in this song(in fact work-out
the details,not the structure)and i'm sure that it would be
very radio-friendly and a great live song.
- kostaspanagioti from Greece
very cool for a pop song I like the
voice of this band vwery coewl I only hate it when a guitar
use only 5 or 6 chords sorry but further.. cool song
- dividedbyhearts from Netherlands
One-two-three-four chords and lotsa
Straightforward, short and sweet, few
chords and you guys give all you've got! Easy band to like,
because you play it simple, honest and with energy. The
simplicity, in particular, is what I like. The guitar solo is
kind of childish and suddenly becomes double, which is very
funny. This music makes me smile!
- Baunen from
just another typical punkrock
song like a thousand other bands do - sorry, but this ones
definitely too boring - also the fat guitarsound can't help
you out there.
- raffputin from Switzerland
off we go! its a real
scorcher,, very sex pistols but a bit more melodic. I like the
guitar solo its a nice followable melody thats quite happy
sounding . i really like the goodbye little girl bit its very
- crostofor from United Kingdom
I like the pop/rock heavy thing going on.I
like the parts overall.The drums are frickin aweseom. The
vocals are kicking serious *&%$.Id like to hear a chorus .
"here we go " insted of halftime go to a tom thing and anthem
it out. Other than that the solo it well done , overall nice
job on the song.
- regardingjack from Unspecified
the volume is up, the production
values have increased. you guys are rocking.Nice chorus. You
guys must be pretty big somewhere.
- Ammp from
A well recorded and sweetly
performed tune. I like the style and feel of this track a lot.
However, the song doesn't have much to say at all,
with only one listening I was pretty let down. Has a lot of
predictable chord patterns, no surprises, and the lyrics fall
in suit. Here we go...holiday...etc. This good of a band (and
singer, I might add) need more substance in their message.
I challenge you: what is your heart and soul saying?
Make it happen in the next song you write.
mention the quality vocals, both lead and harmony. Outstanding
