Great rocker
we are listening
Selected "THE FINALIST" at we are listening.org in 2006

"Vocal delivery great. Cool retro sound, powerful and catchy. Can't
understand words so hard to evaluate. Good sections, make musical
sense."
- Steve Williams

"Great rocker! Excellent guitar riff! It's familiar in a 60s-ish kind of way, but yet EXTREMELY modern. I have no idea what the Japanese lyrics are saying in the verses, but it sure sounds great to
me! In any case, the repetitive "talk about love" chorus is a well-crafted payoff -- very satisfying indeed amidst the complexity of the riffs, rhythms, and the fast-moving Japanese lyric. Fine work
indeed!"
- John Stevens

"Interesting vocals, rock guitar sound is fun, very familiar and
trendy yet also unique with the vocals."
- Dory Benami,

"Original.. made me and the kids laugh out loud!"
- Charlie Mole

"Great punk production. Is this in English? Good song form with
sections that change just as we become used to them. Just the right
amount of repetition. The verse 'chanting' could be the symbol of
this song that people love, or what alienates listeners."
- Andrea Stolpe,
