Default Mini-Review The Song Above You

So, somebody posts a youtube link of a song they've been listening to recently and the person below them writes a short paragraph of their thoughts along with a rating. They then post a youtube link to another song and the person below them writes their thoughts etc.
Saw this on another forum I was lurking on today and thought it could be good fun, hope it takes off. It can also help introduce you to new music.

So mine.

I dig it. I've never listened to the Sonics but they sound like a band I'd dig. Not only does the singer have a great voice but I particularly like that little guitar solo at about 1:40.

Here's one I've been a fan of since last year but I've found myself revisiting a lot recently...

Electric Wizard—"The Chosen Few" (2007)

^8/10. It has quite the atmosphere. I love how the guitar completely overshadows the vocals, and makes it sound absolutely huge. I'll be checking it out .

Really nice IDM right here. Made me want to dance(roll) epileptically all over the room. Haven't heard about this band before but this made me want to check them out.

Not bad. Kind of boring that all it did for 3 1/2 minutes was the same guitar notes and some drumming, not as jazzy as I thought it'd be and that was disappointing.

I couldn't get through it. The beat was too repetitive and seemed to have absolutely no form whatsoever, it was just very random. The vocals also irritated me, too grating and loud. 2/10

OK, nothing overly memorable about it in the indie-rock world, although the vocals were decent enough

The only Steely Dan song I know, i've always wanted to investigate the band more and I may just do that tonight as this song impressed me. I love his vocals he has a perfect voice for the accompianing music.

I especially like it in its place on the album as things only get weirder from therein if you ask me...

Unlike many of my peers, I prefer Tim Buckley's music to his son's.
