Welcome back gents. Been too long.
Great track. Really enjoyed.
I think the only real drawback here is the flatness of the drums and that there could be (yes here he goes again) more bass in the mix. I wish they were boomier. More echo or reverb or dynamics or something. They're just flattening the depth of everything else, which is too bad, because this is a really great track.

Also the end is so sudden... that really took me by surprise...

Still despite the flaws, this is thoroughly enjoyed.

Kudos to the Longlines. Long may they live!

hey, we got labeled explicit for using the word ****...that label is such a misnomer, this song is in no way any more verbally obscene than your average ride on a school bus

now if I had said something like, "Go **** yer hamster" that would be "explicit"

I wish I had better english to say you Longlines how much I enjoy this.
This is the rock I like, the voice I like, the guitar I like, the song I like, the pauses, the instrumentation, the 1/2 chord climb at the end, the choruses... I especially enjoy the drums: sharpen, accurate, and... damn! run out of english!
So glad there's a download button!
Gracias LLines! I want more!

When is somebody gonna properly tell you what fine lyrical writing this is? Let it be me. This is one helluva lyric. It gets it's shine from the superior band performance. Jay - the punch and sock it to me of the band production and performance is smokin' good. Matt, the layers of guits, phased, flanged and biting are delicious. I think the mix is balanced fine because it covers the dynamics of soft to bangin' so well. This, as with all of your songs is a big mama drama.

Ah, my long wait has paid off! Thanks to all the LongLines for providing great music on iComp! I look forward to being able to purchase a CD and getting these in full aural brilliance. (I look forward to purchasing several iComper CDs once I get some more cash under me. smiley )

I'd like to see something done with the ending on this one. I'm not so sure it's abrupt -- more like it sounds a bit unrefined. A little more tailing off, or a slightly different turn would clinch it, I think. I'm a bass fan, and would like more bass, but that's definitely a personal preference. The mixes on LongLines songs work for me despite my prefs.

Great stuff!

WOW!! sometimes the quality and professionalism the casual listener can find just clicking on the home page of this site still surprises me. This is definitely one of those cases: this is a song that, in my younger days as much as now, would have pushed me to frantically searching for the band's LP...oops, CD... in the music store.
Fantastic song from a superb band.

Lighters up, LongLines. Bab, your vocal tracks, I can't say enough, just right-on. Matt, that guitar! Jayman, even beyond the "numbers," the sum of your vision here is outstanding. The poetry bears repeated listens, it's what you left out that's got me mulling this over and over. The arrangement and mix/mastering presents the perfectly constructed puzzle... laminated, framed and hung on the wall in the wood-paneled "rec" room of my lost-in-the classic-rock-era mind.
