Just thought that this warranted inclusion in its own thread.

I like it. I do want more of Will singing on this new album but we'll see.

I thought the beginning was a little monotonous but the song got better as it progressed. Not more excited about the new album than about the two last ones though :-/

Not bad, but i made the mistake of listen at this song after the "Rooster reaction" on the other thread...
no possibility against layne voice... how they used to "play" playing new sounds and i miss the dissonances of layne vs jerry...
that said the song is just nice, but too flat

It's so unfair on William's part, he can do whatever he wants and people will still say they're missing Layne... and you can't blame them for doing so either because his voice was just so damn out of this world fantastic. I talked about this with Daffy a while ago and we both said we missed the edgy, abrasive guitar sounds and the vocal harmonies and dissonances of Layne and Jerry. I haven't listened to old Alice in a long time (with the exception of Would? since it's on the Singles soundtrack and Them Bones which is on my "all time fave" mix CD) and it's probably because I'd miss Layne too much if I did :( Of course this has gotten worse since Chris died... fuck, it'll be a year in a few days too :cry:

i got nothing against william and i have to say that is a good choice, i think he is doing well. But what i blame is the whole new sound, i feel a lack of inspiration. I never skip a song in the "layne's era" album; i can't say the same on what they produced after, i listen only few songs

I agree with that 110%, there's something about the writing and the production of the new AIC albums that have been overbearingly mediocre. I know they can do better, I mean just look at JC's Degradation Trip 1&2 and I feel like with Sean and Mike on the board there's really no reason why these songs should be as dull as they have been.

I do feel like Will gets shafted and people try comparing him to Layne is ludicrous. Layne was a once in a lifetime voice and his work with Jerry cannot be compared. Those harmonies is what made their old records great. I've enjoyed their newer stuff, yet I have a track record for liking music that's not favorable in these neck of the woods.

I just want Will to sing lead more. Probably won't happen though
