Hey, where were you today?
How did you escape?
The way no one gets away
'Cause no one's gone

Fate guided me to hate
Invited me to take the bait
Realized too late
That I was gone

Say, how can you explain
Person to the pain
And then sickness to the sane?
But it's all gone

Most of us get riled up
Justify the lies that we believe
Not enough to disbelieve them

I've been thinking you've been treating
Situations seemingly unkind
Stockade seems to still be working

Change of heart
Save yourself
So damn long

I get ashamed
So much sound
I kiss the ground

So which Neil Young song does it sound like?

The Neil Young and Crazy Horse vibe!

YEAH! They channel the Neil & Crazy Horse vibe so well... If you ever see them, you'll freak, because they have 3 guitars wailing rock

 
Yup.  Neil is one helluva grand daddy.

Much closer than Alice Cooper..... OK, yes, the organ, eh?   Got that connection.

A touch of early Alice Cooper definitely
Really like these guys!
Mercury Rev clone?
Sounds a bit like the dilbert soundtrack by the end! :D
I get it. Ace.
I am on vacation, but logged in so I could add my voice to the negative comments.  Yet another song I never heard before, not even the band ... and liked it so much I needed to check and see who it was.  A big reason why Iisten to and support RP.
Agree with the "annoying", "uninteresting" comments.  Even as background music for work, this was annoying enough to have me open a browser window and offer up this opinion.

So "moving" might be another adjective.  {#Smile}

non-sequitur: Introduced my kids to Rocky and Bullwinkle recently. Netflix is great. They're working on their 4th DVD. Mr. Peabody is one of their favorites.They get to watch all the episodes and see the resolutions of the RnB episodes. I just remember seeing bits and pieces.


Yayyy!!! for a true modern guitar band. They know how to lay it down.

This sounds better than the usual Built to Swill
One or two clankers, but there a several really good cuts. Worth owning. Quite affordable used on Amazon, too.

First heard that one when I was about ten. Yuck.  Never quite the same after that.  Shudder
As for this one, i always like to hear BTS and think they have their own sound.  Probably listened to a little NY though.   ;-)

Wow.  Haven't heard that song in ages.  Think I used to own the vinyl.  Can't remember for sure....

I really like these guys. I finally realized I was picking up on (what I perceived was ) a sort of Wishbone Ash / Argus kinda vibe in this tune {exit the Way-Back machine now...}

I always respect a band that can segue and build a song with numerous parts and movements, moods and changes. That variety and complexity is what makes "progressive" rock; a more thoughtful, mature compostional approach beyond pounding three chords at you until you bleed.

 
 
Multiple Personality Issues?

I too like the diversity of sound in this band. What do you say "Horstman"? Oh, absolutely! They totally rock.

There, we both concur.

I hear a riff from Mountain's wonderful Theme From and Imaginary Western“ Wonder if that was intentional?
okay. when is this over?  sigh.

blimey - that's a bit of a blast from the past. You'll be quoting In-a-gadda-da-vida next.......

I bought this disk based on hearing it here.  Reminds me a lot of Crazy Horse and that guy's voice is even similar to Neil's.  But after listening a few times I don't really have the urge to go back to it.  It is kind of monotonous and repetitive, no really killer guitar work like I expected.
 

I did the same thing and was a little disappointed as well.  A couple of the songs are good but most of the album uses the same formula over and over.  I rarely listen to it now.

Nice build.
I think it's pretty lame that I'm posting twice in a row, but I just HAD to point out, once again, how cool this song is. It's pretty effing cool.
This band rocks! I love the organ too -- gives it a very classic, prog-rock feel. This song feels like it has withstood the test of time, but it's new, right? :)

My wife tells me that all the time! :cheesygrin:
Rocks pretty good! Definitely have to check these guys out further. A hear a little Wilco thrown in there as well. A solid 8 from me.
nice!
What a voice, what a guitar! :bananajam: :dancingbanana_2: Tried to ignore these guys, but this doesn't work any more.
Whoa! :cheers: Thanks, RP! :wave:
This guy has a great spooky quality to his voice. This song is really growing on me. Good thing I have Radio Paradise. Because I'm not likely to hear it anywhere else.
Damn, I love that ominous organ.
I love that bass at the end of the song

I ordered this CD off Amazon last week. Totally a RP purchase because I really like everything I've heard from it so far.

I heard the first chord coming in, and immediately I had to have a look whether it was Crazy Horse or either them guys.

Gosh, i dunno, i was feeling a little david bowie for a minute there...

I think they would consider that a compliment. They're big fans of Neil.
Cover art reminds me of the Chameleons UK album from the 80s...or was that the 90s? I'm getting old...

And maybe some early King Crimson thrown in for kicks?

I dunno. I saw them live this fall and they just don't float my boat. They're o.k., but they don't stand out as special to me. The friend I saw them with thinks they're the greatest band EVER, so maybe it's just me.
OK, 5 listens later, I am really starting to like this. Hmmm, maybe someone who picked this song has a better ear than I.
You are playing this song far too much. Built to spill is cool, but not every single day.
Hmmm, acoustic guitar and electronic organ. Reminds me of a bad church band. Sorry, just a 6 for me.
my patience is GONE.

for sure
Y'know, these guys have really grown on me along with The Shins. Both bands have odd kinda vocal styles but the music is very unique, creative and enjoyable. Yeah, you can accurately claim the song seems to go on a bit longer than you might like.
I always enjoy this one
I may have to buy this.

sometimes it sounds like it wants to break into the theme from The Office.

Beautiful - Doug Marsh is amazing.
Pretty forgettable stuff.

I agree... and their live shows follow suit. I saw them a few months back in Salt Lake....really fun show!

I really hear Mountain Nantukett Sleighride in this. Which is not a bad thing. Go Felix!

First Ranked this at a 5 (I like their music but this didnt grab me), but then the organs came in at the end and the whole song was pulled together. 5=>8.

I agree! I saw them last winter? and it was a super good show.

The same thing just happened to me! My heart started beating faster as soon as RP transitioned from the piece before. Want to go read all about the instrumentalists, which are quite impressive! The singing seems to take a back seat, and the melody isn't especially coherent, but no one is off key. The guitar note-bending is creating backflips in my stomach (in a good way). Now they have added organ sound that combines suspenseful with churchlike in its riffs. Got to find out more about this group! :guitarist: :yes: image of organ needs to go here :clap: I am intrigued! Thank you, RP!

Sounds not too bad...! But what about a common gig of this band and Grobschnitt (cf. https://www.stephan-schelle.de/grobschnitt/)?
Dull, but I heard a few notes that reminded me of Nantuk Sleighride by Mountain. Must did that up.
I'm :music: Gone!
Life is too short to listen to mediocre music.
