Alrighty then! Time for another new rocker.

Stumbled on the main riff by accident whilst noodling aimlessly, and then built the rest of the tune around it.

Calchas: Vocals, guitars, and bass.

The midi drum track was constructed of files from groovemonkee.com's ROCK ESSENTIALS pack.

Thanks in advance for listening and commenting.

I like the displaced opening riff where the beat isn't where you think it is. Cool guitar chords and arrangement with breaks and closing lead. No mixed signals from me! smiley

Fantastic and so well conceived in every respect, from the inventive structure, to the complex chord choices to the difficult subject matter in the lyrics... Nails everything in a way that pays off beautifully. It’s a song I think even the members of Rush would be comfortable playing.

Your production on this makes me think of the Talking Heads. It doesn't sound like them, just the production. It may be the delay. Another cruisin' ride.

Thanks bro... Perhaps my second guessing of this piece is due to the fact that it was more of a struggle to complete than I'm used to. It is growing on me. I'm as surprised as I am pleased though by some of these enthusiastic reviews. My reaction to them is something like:

"Sheesh! What do I know after all..."

As I recounted in the description I came up with the riff whilst noodling on the guitar and felt right away that it would be cool to build a song around it. HOW cool it turned out is, of course, up to the listener... I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

I've gotten the Talking Heads comparison a few other times over the years. Funny thing is that I've never heard them! I always take it as a compliment though...

We all need to step out of our comfort zone once in awhile. I've learned a lot over the years from making myself listen to genres I'm not usually attracted to. In fact, I do a lot of that here at icomp. smiley

It's turned out to be a fruitful source of new ideas!

Thanks so much for listening!

Great lyrics and vocals. I really like the overall production of the song. Interesting Bridge. A song writing teacher told me that bridges really have to have an overall different sound and feeling, and yours did just that. Some one above mentioned that there is an overall Talking Heads influence, I agree, but I also think that the refrains and verses sounded a little like the Tubes. Great job.

Thanks for the perceptive and supportive comment friend. RE the Tubes... I've only ever heard one song by them. (Something about talking to a pretty girl...) HOWEVER, I know Bill Spooner from his ealier work as leader of The Beans. They were a Phoenix based band that I saw four or five times back in the day. Eventually they moved to L.A. where they split up, the remaining members uniting with half of the Red White and Blues Band (?) to form the Tubes. I LOVED the Beans, but they never got a recording contract. So sad...

I like how that's a heavy riff - like alice in chains or something heavy - but it's in a not-metal tune,

Good mix on this too, man.

Interesting tune...kinda like Jethro Tull maybe?
