wooow.
definitely one of the better pop-punk self recorded songs i've found online. the playing and singing is very tight rhythm wise, and you hit all the notes perfectly! the horn solo thing is awesome too. you should try and get a band together and do gigs- you'll certainly be a fave at parties and whatnot.

good job! and thanks for the crit on my jazz guitar vid

I liked it! The horn part is unconventional, but I really like the concept. You have a good voice for this style of music, and your timing is very tight--lucky bastard lol. I like the staccato part in the middle, and the build-up at the end is a good idea. Maybe making it a smidge more gradual would work a smidge better though? As it is, it's quiet and then BOOM loud again. If that's the effect you're going for, than totally disregard this comment, but I think it would be cool if you put a crescendo there.

I think is a pretty good song, I'd be proud if I wrote this

It's very good for self recording! Better than anything I could do. The vocals are pretty good. There are only a few spots that I hear room for improvement. Take this to a person who has experience in production and recording and you've got a kick arse song man!

Very nice guitar tone. The saxophone doesnt seem to blend well however, feels overdubed (im sure it is), but it doesnt mix well. The song is great, very nice feel, less than jake sounding. I think the saxophone should be layered to sound fuller. Same with the vocals, especially when saying "Dont let me fall apart," to emphasize it. The vocals arent great but they are very good for this genre. Its a catchy song and its a legit ska track. I love the softer bridges (beginning and bridge). Nick job bro. Its sick.

Pretty cool, brings me back to my highschool days where a lot of my friend's bands would play this stuff. I'm not a big fan of pop-punk in general but it's one of the better ones I've come across through these forums. I found the sax is very stale sounding to me. I'm sure with better mics and recording equipment it would sound better. The one thing that turns me away from this genre is the vocals because I find a lot of singers are just belting out and most of the time sounds a bit sloppy, lose a lot of control and it's stain-y. But if that is what you're going for, go with your gut. I love that ska isn't dead, the bring back is good and musically well done, the energy is there.
