Hi,

we recorded the current version of our strange song "another side of the planet" finally. If you take time (4:06) to listen please answer shortly:

:?: 1. Is this song too provocative?
:?: 2. What is your first spontaneous thought after listening?
:?: 3. What would you change in this song?

1) no, that's OK
2) well, it's solid rock with good breaks/variation, good vocals (a bit 80's ? no, it's probably the timbre...)
3) More snare, less kick (or maybe different eq)

Aaahh, thank you, Laguna Rising, for your answers (and positive critics also). And yes - the kick may be a little too strong ... we'll consider this.

1) No
2) A little reminiscent of some Stranglers tracks?
3) I thought the vocals were fighting other instruments at a couple of points in the track, but eq may fix that. I thought the kick was ok, but that may just be my taste.

Good song

1. No
2. It does sound late 70s early 80s, actually reminds me of some friends bands from that time.
3. Not much, really. I mean the mix could use a bit of work, but otherwise?

Well done, glad to hear a band format! 8)

1) i don't understand the question.
2) that was fun, it had some cool ideas.
3) drums are not driving enough (but then, i'm a snobby drummer....) and the lead guitar needs more distortion!

@ seismic1, polysax, funky lime: Thank you for your answers!

Not consciously - but it's a straight 8ths-song, which also Stranglers did in most of their songs AFAIK.

Yeah, thanks!

It's the hidden message in the lyrics ... :) - just leave it.

1. I don't understand the question either. Can't make the lyrics out.
2. I'm hungry
3. I'd make it shorter and lose the guitar "solos".

OOhh :D Interesting! But sure I'll conceal this statement to our guitarist!

Thanks Controlcentre!
