I like the compression he's using. The falling back on itself style of playing is certainly interesting. Loved the ending.

6/10

Get a heavy leaning towards The Allman Bros for some reason. I remember hearing Seed of Memory and To Be Treated Right before but haven't heard this one. Not a huge fan of his voice. 4/10

That was a lot of fun, I could see it being at least 20 times better in concert too. 7/10

Reminds me of Dystopia. Singer has some power and the drummer had some nice rolls. 6/10

5/10

The Donnas are cool but most of the songs ive heard from them sound like this one. ive also noticed the singer says "C'mon" alot in their songs.



This is a cover from Rodrigo & Gabriela that i think sounds better than the original.

Rodrigo and Gabriela are some phenomenal guitarists. I hadn't heard that one before, but it stands up to par with the rest of their stuff. Implementing the percussion and melody at the same time is very impressive.

Meh. Don't really give a **** about poetry, and spoken word poetry is just dull to me for the most part. 3/10

I found this track pretty generic. I wasn't into the whole angsty screaming style of singing, the bland drum sound, or the repetitive guitar riffs. Just felt like a bunch of other unpleasant songs I've heard peripherally. Also I don't dig on self important preachy lyrics in music. I mean like Rage Against the Machine does that stuff a bit but they're able to do it in a way where it's catchy and not as blunt.

Just not my bag. 2/10


^^ dug that Last Poets track though! Thanks for that Frownland. That was dope.

Reminds me of guided by voices a bit, i liked the minimalistic approach in the music arrangement but i didn't like the tone of the vocals. it's not bad but im not used to it, they strike me as the kind of band you can appreciate once you're familiar with them but if not they don't cause a good impression.

Not normally my type of music, but I loved the sheer goofiness of it. Interesting stuff.

7/10
