This is a good one.

 

Is it? :) Great. Could you please elaborate a bit, though? :) If you will. What do you like about it, what do you not like, what surprised you, etc.... Thanks! :)

I was just fucking with Santino.

First listen of the record his yo-yo vocal delivery was a little off putting but it grows on ya. I know that's kind of his style.

Haha, yeah! Think twice before posting such bold statements! :biggrin: :biggrin:

That vocal delivery is the one thing that's kinda off-putting me from finally listening to it, because lately, I've grown weary of it across all of his musical ventures, whether it would be his older stuff he did with John, or his backing vocals in RHCP, or even stuff where he's more prominent (Dot Hacker).

Maybe I'll just skip it for now and come back to it later.

The songs seem good. It's too bad everything's been digitally edited and manipulated to shit to sound like top 40 radio.

Top 40 radio sounds so completely different to this, but seriously, like so utterly, radically different, that i wonder if, when you say "top 40 radio", whether or not you actually know what any of those words mean

Of course I know the words mean – otherwise I wouldn't have used them. The question is – do YOU know what it means? I'm not referring to specific genres, but a broader approach to recording music that involves heavily editing everything to give it a kind of masked, synthetic sound. It's a clear aesthetic choice – one that I don't agree with.

Im sure the autotune is a stylistic choice and not because of bad singing and in Josh's case it doesnt sound cheesy or top40 pop radio anywhere

Been listening to it a lot in the last week. Probably 6 or 7 times all the way through plus multiple listens of Rat Bastards, Save, and Shade. I don't hear what you're talking about but maybe I don't understand what you mean. I also hear a lot of top 40 at work and around my family.

Regardless, I think it's good. It's cold and gets dark early here this time of year and this has been a great soundtrack for that mood. It's like a little warm fire on my cold, dark drive home every night.

I thought it was some very nicely controlled reverb. In some parts his voice sounds like a lap steel guitar.

(EDIT Lap steel not slide)

Now you've got me intrigued! Sounds good.

Physical copy finally arrived. Overflowing should've been on the proper LP instead of being relegated to a B-side.

My thoughts too. I'm excited to see what he does now that he's not tied to the peppers.
