Someone posted it the other night on the what's spinning Facebook group, groovy litte track.

So I was just listening to it, does it have a title that we know of? It's only about 30 seconds long (felt about that long, anyway) and instrumental, sounds to me like something they were working on that may surface on the next album. Or not.

The third technique video is up, this one from Dean. To me, the live performance seems sloppy. The technique he discusses doesn't mesh well with the song and feels clunky.

I listened to the full album on the way to work today. I kept thinking of the tracks I hadn't heard or heard little of "this has some great potential" but then it never seemed to deliver. I was really excited for Mile Markers from the snippet on SoC but listening to the full track left me disappointed, specifically with the chorus. Three Dollar Hat isn't really in my wheelhouse. And Impossible Winner....WTF? This is a DW song? Sounds like it should be over the closing credits of a documentary about American Idol or something. Cop and Go is the best of the songs I hadn't really heard to date. Some good songs, but I wasn't floored this time around. Not saying it's not well written or anything bad, just my personal experience with the music.

Jack referred to IW as "the best song Alison has ever written." :?

It's a really great song, but a DW song? I like it like I like "The Last Goodbye". Maybe a little better. It just feels like this big closing song to a movie about the underdog overcoming adversity to save the Rec Center and gets their own show on Broadway with their name up in lights..... It's just bizarre at the end of the album with a bunch of fuzz guitar. It's got strings....STRINGS in it. You can NOT say you didn't go WTF when this song came on.

Agree 100%. I really dig the track, but it doesn't fit the record. I actually made that comment to Dean at the listening party, though I tried not to sound critical. LOL!

It's a great song but it reminds me more of the songs she did for the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack not necessarily DW, I was like wtf but in a good way

It sounds like a James Bond theme.

No, really? We didn't notice that yet.

Pulled the batteries out of the screamer jacket today. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Bend a couple small tabs that hold the battery in place, slide them out, and no more corrosion worries.

LOL! I haven't really seen anyone talk about the singles compared to the LP. How about this comparison.... To the left of the yellow dotted line is the graphical representation of the single "I Feel Love..." and the right side is the same song off the LP. Same rig, same settings. That single is damn loud!
