This is freakin mad, but I like it! This is music for games IMO; I wouldn't consider it a serious contender for anything else, other than the guitar solo section. I liked the variation, structure, the beat, the feel, the main riff. Nice but weird!

Zappa would be proud of that one. I love that kind of stuff where you don't know what is coming up. It sounds like it is all going to fall apart and then "Da na na na na na". I also liked the effect at the start, the solo was tasty. Great composition, wouldn't play it to my wife at while we are having dinner, but very interesting track. I can see there was a lot of work put into that one. I can't rate so I would give it 4 out of 5.

Aldebaran Strikes Back - RumpyTheRubbuhChikin

Now this is the sort of style I recognise you for - yes, I have had a decent look through MSB and here before registering. As always with your ridiculous dissonance, it's a fun listen.

Awesome groove you have going in the chorus. I really like Pre-Solo to Guitar Solo - perhaps because it was the most "melodic" you ever got in the song, so I was honestly annoyed when you just went BLEH with it at the end. Annoyed at the fact that it ended that way, really. However, I understand this is a joke song (what else could it be?), so no real honest qualms about that.

Apologies in advance if it WAS meant to be a serious song. :P

Anyway, it's a fun song, but I don't see it as a masterpiece. Be happy with it though, imo it's as good as a standard song of this "genre" gets.

4 stars.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm... horror blues... [drools in Homer Simpson fashion]. By now you must already know I'm a sucker for this kind of weird stuff. But there's a small problem. You see, you got a perfectly good song here, but for some reason it seems to lure the listener into expecting better. The intro makes me think of "Dawn of the Gutter","Eye"-like goodness, with the haunted strings and the slow, torturing bass, but the rest of the song doesn't quite live up to this promise, mainly because some parts, especially verse 2 and the final chorus, feel "empty" - Chorus 1 and 2 go by nicely, but by Chorus Riff and 3, I'm mentally soloing over it, which by my book means something is missing - if it were me I'd probably stick some shreds on top, but I know you're not a fan of that. I just feel that it needs some kind of filling (like bar 66 for example, there should be more of that!).

Another thing, the tempo change to 180 in the beginning feels very abrupt, you could have handled the transition a bit better I think.

Regardless of emptiness and stuff, I really enjoyed this piece - the intro, as said before, and the interlude/guitar solo (it almost feels like "normal" blues!) particularly were very creative and "groovy". It's just that when I think of all the superb stuff that you've done before, this one falls a bit behind. Sorry...

A pretty innovative piece, yet still plently of rumpy to be found. Suffers slightly from lack of transitions...

I love the intro for this man, makes me think of a really sleazy bar with a bunch of tobacco smoke and the smell of cheap alcohol, with a guy with a horrible cough making a rant... seems like something out of a sci-fi movie man =D.

The 180 part comes in a bit abruptly, but then the riff itself is pretty cool, nice little introduction to the song.

The chorus has a really great distorted guitar line, but the clean guitar line sounds a bit off, even for a song that thrives on the strange sounds...

Verse 2 was sweet, nice use of dissonance in there ;)

The interlude is pretty cool, but again, it seems like a lot of the riffs in this song switch quite abruptly, maybe there should have been a cadence or a segue, or little sections to link parts together more efficiently.

Guitar solo was great, I loved it, except the ending again, abrupt out of nowhere...

Chorus riff was great on its own, actually I prefered it that way than with the clean chords on top.

Outro is excellent, this transition between both riffs is a lot better than many others in this song...

Basically other than the chords at the chorus I don't have any problems with the riffs, and this song is definitely very original, it's not something I have heard before - That being said the lack of transitions between parts makes for a lack of efficient flow; this could have been potentially a lot better.

I still enjoyed listening to it, despite its shortcomings - originality is always a plus for me.

3.5 stars.

The song is ok but not super exceptional as a song coming from you. The transitions between parts are too forced sounding, even though that might be like you wanted it. Unfortunately the chorus is probably the part of the song I liked the least, which is unfortunate since its supposed to be what you remember positively. Intro+Rant and the bridge/outro was the nicest parts for me, they had a nice feel.
Anyway summing up, the parts are ok, but the transitions killed the flow at times. Still its pretty good.

Another good song from you. The verses are just ok, but the chorus somehow makes me wanna dance. (I said that in a good way). But after the first verse+chorus, the song gets a little boring. I was hoping the interlude would fix that, but, strangely enough, it didn’t work for me. But wait, it gets better in the guitar solo. Answering your question at the end of the solo: no, I wasn’t expecting that, but I was hoping for something like that, I mean, being this a song made by you… I guess that’s what’s missing in this song, that particular touch you give to your songs. But still, it’s a good song.
