    I heard this tune on the Boston college radio a few months ago, and it jumped at me instantly. It popped up on my Amazon prime today and I recognized it. It looses some of the 'intimacy, or there with them' quality with the YouTube conversion, but full fidelity really sounds amazing thru my iPad and mackoes hrs, which are by no means top level. Anyways, how the heck do you think they got these sounds man, full defined, real, and suffers nothing 'digital' ? I wish I wrote this tune. But I'm glad someone did, cuz it hits home. Enjoy.

    I'm not all that crazy about the song itself, but it certainly sounds very "real" - no frills, and it has a simplicity to it that works in a very organic way.

    I think it's a case of the classic "less is more" approach. And, I like that there is still room for these kinds of song/recordings, in our all-too-often over-produced, over-edited, Pro Tools over-kill digital world.

    Again, it's not really my thing musically, but I do respect it for what it is, and I appreciate you posting it. :)

    I like this. Really listenable... and the video really suits the song quite well. At times the guitar licks seemed kind of aimless, but that also suits the feel of the song somehow. This track really knows what it's about.

    Whoever the engineer/producer who did this track is really knows how to leave a good thing alone. Sometimes that's what separates the men from the boys, if you know what I mean. ;P
