You're a man of many names, and many versions... of this song. It's sounding really polished. Every guitar track seems to have its own proper space, nothing is bleeding into anything else, and it's just crisp, crisp, crisp. Really good production.

I really enjoy this. That guitar intro pulls me right in and the chorus melody is really catchy. Overall this has a great nostalgic sound to it.

Thanks folks. "Nostalgic sound" is an interesting description. Can you explain what you mean?

Nice work. I agree with the nostalgic sound thing Capricorn said. To me, I think it sounds a bit like new-wave, 80's influenced a bit. But also, that's what I've been listening to a bit lately so I could just be projecting that. Either way, it's not a bad sound at all. I like how it feels and it works great!

Well the New Wave was my era, so I guess it's not surprising. Although some other people have said this is quite a contemporary sound - in terms of some Brit bands anyway. What goes around comes around....

Yes, Well, I'm not so young either so I suppose I'd associate more with the new wave sound rather than the more contemporary version of it. But yeah, you're right, what goes around...and all that.

I was listening to an LP the other day, The Sound - Jeopardy. Have you heard of it? I was blown away that it was a 1980 record. It sounded a lot like what was in with a lot of my younger friends at the moment.
