Some new bits if anyone's interested. A sort of return to me 'roots' a bit if you will.

Firstly a morose acoustic-y song perhaps a bit in the vein of the early (before they became arse..) Radiohead;

And an instrumental (with some wailing Welsh woman samples) shoegazer malarky;

Time to do some more work on the jath (or is it jaath :scared: )

I listened to the first one - "Strategic Objective." The songwriting is strong. Emotional with some nice chord changes.

There are some mix issues. The vocals are muffled. When it gets loud, there is a general loss of clarity.

Overall, quite enjoyable. :tu:

First track;
- The jury is still out on this one. I need to listen to this more then a few time to get a handle on it.
Second Track;
- Very impressed with this right away. Lots of good stuff going on in this.
Please do something about that snare though...then do a vocal track.
Want to hear this when it done!

Fine work with both of these Benny. Top notch.
....................Don`t blame me for 'The Roots', I just live here. :x

Reminded me somewhat of Porcupine Tree.

They both sound maybe post Post Punk(R.E.M. Radio Head, U2?) I like the music and attitude on the first song but I couldn't understand the words until the end. For me, if a song has words, they are as important as the music or even more important.

I liked the instrumental song. Nice work!

I really liked the shoegazer malarkey. And at first I wasn't sure about the Radiohead comparison in the first one, but then I imagined Thom Yorke's voice and conceded it could've been on The Bends. Well done.
