@Goatie - thank you and  ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart:: !!


@Mar T. Thanks - ole @Jambrains has found a new calling I think!! The first video got some 'ARGH MY EYES' reactions so we thought maybe not and tbh I myself wasn't sure about it (while my reaction was not so extreme). Also the lyric although it could be interpreted as you have (and I love reading your interpretation!!) is not actually about that so it probably pushed that interpretation (now you mention it). I love this one more :-). It's fab!!


Thank you @MrBazouki for your comment here and on SC!! Delighted to hear that.


@Bill from November Sounds - thank you! All kudos to JB on that - take a bow Mr Brains!!


Thanks all!!

@Zedd Very good! if I had one critique it would be having the drum performance a little tighter.  Great job though  ::smiley::

Thanks @Dara !! Not sure if it's clear from my post but 99% of the playing and all of the production is down to @Jambrains !!


Thanks for listening and for your comments :-)

Well this little debate got me around to listening to this amazing song again.  ;)

Great new video and this is SUCH a good song both production wise and performance wise. I had pen in hand for this listen and I found two tiny spots that could be construed as off.....not by me, though, so I'm not noting them. I hear this as pretty tight drum production. That cool kind of syncopated breakdown around 2:30 does take the percussion in a different direction relative to the straight up-ness of the rest of the song but that works very well to my ears.

I was actually teasing Jam O'Brains :-) as he was me... :-) - although I do love everything he has done on it!! I do get very excited by our AFD creations 😀😀

Thanks @Leonard Scaper. Means a lot!

In the old days we used to call this folk rock, but few could pull it off. Now you have just re-invented it for the current century, a heady mix of crazy heaviness with rustic melodies that fuse irresistibly together.

How did you put together that video, which was good first time around? Even better now.

Very different, well done!
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Oh how poetic! I like that review a lot - might steal it for our blurb what do you think @Jambrains ? Thanks @MichaelA ! Much appreciated!!

Vid question to JB also - although he had to wait until I perfected the dance 😎😎! 👯👯‍♂️

Great stuff - well done @Zedd and @Jambrains - I really like the contrast between the vocals and the heavy guitar sound.

I enjoyed the video as well - all in all this is sounding and looking very impressive.

cheers

Thanks all for your very kind words. Love working with @Zedd!

Re the video I really can't take much credit for it.
It is based on a video with creative commons licensing that I have edited slightly.
Links to original video as well as the creator can be found at the end of the description on YT as well as at the end of the video itself.

This is extremely cool!!! I love every bit of it! You complement each other so well :) the music is really intriguing, fantastic + energizing intro,  and brilliant flow + build up and the different instruments/sounds work perfectly together in a perfect blend of contrasts...And your vocals fit in marvellously @Zedd . What a treat!! I want more!!! :) :) brilliant work!!!
