I actually kinda like it. I always had a soft spot for the Transplants though so it's not too surprising. This should be quite an eclectic album

Yeah, I thought the same thing about the drums. Anytime you see Travis' name in a song you almost kinda expect to hear that live drum sound that goes along with it, not a drum loop. If I'd heard this without knowing it was a "Travis Barker" song, I would've just assumed it was The Transplants. As for the song itself, not bad, but by no means great. As some said before, it pretty much sounds like a rehashed Santana tune.

this guy confuses me. he's an excellent drummer who's making a record with a bunch of different artists. So why aren't the drums on his songs great? just look at this song - he could make something epic with Slash and yet the song looks average both in drums and in guitar. unless I'm missing something important here, what's the point?

This guy could do a good song or two just straight instrumentals/drums. Everything he's released solo has been extremely not interesting.

hopefully saving his best for blink which would be fine by me. dont care for his hip hop stuff. some of his remixes are nice though.

This song reaks of: "QUICK! We need a single to rock radio! Get some dudes with rock cred and have them rap over another guy with rock cred's guitar riff!"

My opinion on the track aside -- It's common practice for hip-hop records with potential for crossover to include a track or two on a record with guitar just to get some airplay. See also: Cypress Hill's latest album, that one K'Naan song, various "rock remixes" of hip-hop songs released exclusively to rock radio, etc.

That being said? It's a boring song that feels very uninspired. It sounds like the Transplants--minus everything that makes them fun.

Cypress has used guitars/drums for years lol. it's just a fun loose song man. don't try to make it more than it is. you cant judge the transplants sound by any 1 of their songs imo.
