I actually really like it. I don't quite know who Joey Brutalford is, but Kyle Rosa is a really good drummer. He used to be in Thieves and Liars and played percussion in the new Other Mountains band and is subbing in live in Other Mountains.
I liked ISOSG too buddy. We are probably the only ones haha
Count me on that list. I think the album would have fared better critically had it been a debut release for an upcoming band. I think Saosin's back catalog served as context that hurt how it was received.
I really like Cove's vocals, but this song is pretty boring. I'm not really feeling the guitar riff, and it definitely ain't strong enough to carry the entire song. Still, I'm glad Cove is making music again. Good things will come of this.
I think he made it pretty clear on his tumblr post that this was just a thrown together demo that they did one night. So no, it's not spectacular, but I think it has some promise. I like the sound and was really pleased to hear that he was doing something that sounds so much different than Saosin.
