That took a bit of time for me to download your demo. It'd be cool if you guys just streamed it off of MySpace or Soundclick, but that's okay.

Anyhow, the music wasn't really my style to be honest. Albeit you guys have a strong very indentifiable sound. I don't listen to a lot of U2, but most of it seemed to remind me of that band.

The songs were a bit hard for me to listen to because I didn't quite feel involved with the songs really. It just seemed like you were filling in a lot of empty space with effects, and I didn't quite get the feel of a tight band. Although I admire the experimentation the guitarists uses with the effects, but none of it really felt progressive but more like w**kery, like he wasn't really trying to make his part solid.

I admire a lot of different styles of vocalists, but your vocalist seemed lack anything melodic or atleast varying. Alot of it just seemed like an african preacher preaching the gospel over and over quite monotonously.

Although I did like the bass and drums. They were able to add some energy to the sound. The bass kept it funky and straight on the beat. The drums were also good, and I like the busy drum beats, but you guys seriously shouldn't hide him in the editing process with all that compression, reverb and delay.

I understand you guys are most likely going for a sound that I can't quite relate to. But still feel like you guys need to something that really tries to attack the listener, rather than lull the listener into a trance with your mystical music...that'd be truly progressive, as it would challenge the listener to listen to it.

Anyhow, sorry if I seemed like a jerk, but I thought I'd give my two cents.

Fair enough, thanks for taking the time.
 
Interesting the U2 reference, we don't listen to much U2 but we do come from the same part of Dublin as them, must be something in the water!
 
More crits welcome!

What does it mean. Why is it so popular...
I can strangle a canary in a tin can and it would be really original, but that wouldn't save it from sounding like utter sh*t.
