    Hi all,

    I had a go at an old grunge track, doing some guitar and vocal overdubs and doing some intensive Alice In Chains referencing. Here is the result - feedback most welcome:



    Here is a link to a music video of the song as well:


    PLASTIC FANTASTIC
    (Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)
    Mankind
    Invention
    Maligned
    Intention
    We’re full
    Of it
    Evil
    Plastic

    Yeah!
    It’s a plastic fantastic world
    Yeah!
    Need a drastic change
    A plastic change

    The earth
    Can’t take it
    Rebirth
    Or break it
    When you
    Buy it
    Avoid
    Plastic

    Yeah!
    It’s a plastic fantastic world
    Yeah!
    Need a drastic change
    A plastic change

    MONOLOG:
    The UN estimates, but 2050, there’ll be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Already it holds 5 trillion plastic particles, dumped across the world.

    SOLO

    Yeah!
    It’s a plastic fantastic world
    Yeah!
    Need a drastic change
    A plastic change
    Yeah!
    It’s a plastic fantastic world
    (A plastic world)
    Yeah!
    Need a drastic change
    (A plastic world)

    I might be imagining it, but it seems like the yoytube an soundcloud are audibly a bit different, with SC a little louder and more grainy top end. I like the you tube version better.

    I like the subject matter, its a real issue we all face.

    I listened to the track a few times. i like hearing the snare rolls playing a featured role. Its not easy to get right. Overall the song is cool and the mix well done.

    One thing i keep feeling like id do differently is automate the vocal's echo level up and down a bit, to accent words and phrases either by wetting or drying, and keep things moving around. Maybe you did this already and its just not as pronounced as i imagine it. It could also be the fact that im listening on a phone...

    Either way its an interesting track and i enjoy the stabby chords as a nice variation from a typical riff.
