:) So far I'm loving it, but the internet keeps slowing down, as apparently there has been some outage with the company, so it keeps messing up from time to time.

Altho I'm not a fan of such style my ears tell me that this is a proffesional and admirable stuff;)

The only thing which stays behind are drums. As far as I know you've programmed them by yourself?
Maby you should think about getting a little help with drum compositions from some experienced drummer
as they are a bit booring now. I always repeat that - when guitars and vocals are simple then the drummer should take a
initiative of filling the blank spaces on the stave.
The best examples are bands like Blink182 or Nirvana - they woudn't be as good without their drummers whose characteristic style
put a great foundation under the rest of the music.

Thank you for taking the time to listen and give your feedback. Here is a youtube link to the first track "Coffee" played live with a drummer. Let me know if you think it makes a difference?

that's really nice performance, not only drumming wise. I like it more than album version mainly due to lack of that horrible reverb (sorry to say that, there's for too much of it;).
But still... I'm a drummer myself, so it's obvious that I prefer when drum parts are more complex...
few chops here and there, some ghost notes on snare, few funky patterns on cymbals and the whole music would definitell get some extra energy and diversity.

Cool, thank you for your feedback. I play drums too just not as my first instrument. On this release I just wanted to keep it simple. My next one which I've already begun is going to be even more scaled back but instead of playing everything myself I'll have people with me. Evolution is always happening. :)

Wow! Thank you. I'll take that as very high praise because Blind Melon and their video for No Rain are both great. So cool for you guys to say that. :)

I'll be perfectly honest with you - so if you don't want to read harsh critic please stop reading now;)



So...
if you wanted to presented yourself as a hippie-pussy-faggot among the trees... well you did a great job then.
I don't want to be offensive but... every second of this vid is just so gay... I hardly could watch it...
The thing is when I listen to your music it makes me think you are some cool, careless, laid-back guy, so I expect to see a huge portion of dirt and not-giving-a-fuck in your videos! Never something like this!
Not to mention the terrible camera work...

To me a video should be the cherry on top of the cake, where the cake is the song;)
In this case the video is like a fat kid who sneaked to the kitchen and put his fat wiener-fingers right into the cake, destroying the whole composition... you know what I'm trying to say?

I think you should 'hire' some more talented camera-man and get some ideas from other music videos about the shots, camera work, visual effects etc, and at first you should definitelly come out with some idea about the topic. Because
random fooling around with a guitar in the garden can be turned into a piece of art only by some skilled video director.

If you have managed to get through my words please don't get mad on me;) I don't want to offend, just want to point out what's wrong from my point of view.
