we just put music up from our first ep, were pretty happy with it but have plans of improvment in mind for the next time we record such as i plan on recording to a click.

So tell me what you think I really want to hear what you all think. :D :D :D :D

Sounds real good man. I dig it. But if I may, constructively criticize a bit? Don't take this the wrong way, but I happen to think if the drums were a little less "busy" it would sound a whole lot better. I'm digging that groove you got going on, but I'm getting a bit confused with what's going on in the keyboards. Oh, and the best part of that first track starts at 1:50. That section is freakin' killer! Keep up the good work! And who knows, maybe recording to a click might fix it, you never know. My suggestion though is be a little less "busy." To each his own, opinions, opinions...

I like it Jeff, might be a little busy, but I think the music calls for it. At least you aren't smothering it.
