Your parents gave you that name with love in their hearts, you know....
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

I just heard this single and it sounds like a collaboration between Luther Vandross and Moby circa 1995. ick.

Nail on head Nathan. It appeals to all the dull old farts, because it sounds old. But its new!! so they are down with kids...downloads and all. Stictly for the terminally sad, and taste free drone.

Got to say that I can't quite understand all the fuss. S'alright I suppose. Heard worse...

You guys are ruining the song for me. Stop it!

(actually that Vandross meets Moby comparison is spot on, Nathan. And I can't stand Moby)

And you can actually stand Luther Vandross?!!!

I dunno, to me Nathan's comment sounds way off base and i'm surprised you went with it so quickly Jeff.

I still like Crazy but it does remind me a bit of Moby circa Play.

It sounds absolutely fuck all like Moby, that's for sure. And Vandross didn't have a bad voice, he just sang shite songs.

Jeff, if it was anything like Moby i'd refuse to listen to it twice.

I am glad to see the Marios /Diamond dog axis starting to crumble under the weight of its own uncertainty. Once the flaws in this worthless jingle have been exposed, it stands naked, and empty before them. They should listen to the people who know about music. Maybe they might learn something.

Sometimes I get swayed by bad influences. I must learn to wait until I hear your final verdict on something until I form an opinion of my own.

I am always at the doyens club, if you need to pop in for advice on the proper things to be listenig to Jeff. We see so little of you there, despite having been a member for nearly a year now!!

My main piece of advice would be. Ignore the dog. He is deaf.

Axis? Crumbling?

Paranoid? Who, me?

Which is a couple of months more than most of the songs that get the whole radio saturation treatment.
I can just about handle you driving like a pissed up crackhead and treating women like beanbags but I'm gonna say this once and once only Gene, stay out of Camberwick Green!

What's wrong with something that sounds 'old'??

I'd rather listen to Crazy than the contrived 'Ay oop it's all reet t'me' schtick of the Arctic Monkeys.

It's funky. Makes me wanna dance. What more do you need in life?

Proper indie cred.
