I do too. Mix analysis has always been something I enjoyed since studying Music Production. The Classic Tracks Series in Sound on Sound Magazine is really interesting.

Theres plenty of frequency range and stereo field for them all to sit in the mix in harmony.

With a little EQ and compression they should all have separation as needed, but gel together at the same time

For me I'm afraid it's not.

I bit like "Resolve" for me, a song that's ok but very easily forgotten.

(The last minute of "Resolve" where all the previous parts mash together is beautiful though)

It doesn't render good live but the studio version is great.
I definitely hear some Diorama in it. But that's probably unintentional and likely more of a Beatles influence.

On second listen, I almost love it. Could imagine it as a throw away from One by One, since they threw all the best songs away.

There is also a weird part where Dave's vocals seem to momentarily pan to the right for a couple of words.
I'm a sucker for wide panned guitars- love hearing the different parts spread out. Reminds me a bit of what they did with the Rope intro and the Dear Rosemary verses. And anytime Pat gets to do something that isn't a drop D power chord to thicken the sound is fine by me!

Well, my 3 year old loves it.

First listen in the car: "hey, that's a funny song!" Then made me play it on repeat for about 20 miles... (not that I minded)

Say what you will about this song, but I can't get the freakin chorus out of my head...

Woke up this morning humming "bangin' on the ceiling, bangin' on the ceiling!"


I expect to hear this playing relentlessly as sports bumper music.

I like the song. Surely like the recording better than the live phone videos out there. But, based on what some have said re: song credits and what Dave was quoted as saying re: the song being added after the others were recorded, the song does seem like it is missing something. That something may very well be the great Shiflett. I am guessing he was on a tour w/ his band when Dave recorded the tune. Kind of annoying. I am really hoping for some Shiflett leads throughout this new record.

I can't move for this song on Radio 1 UK.
Lots of radio play before Friday's Live Lounge special.

They're actually playing it on Radio 1 ? Now that is cool! I haven't listened to that radio station in years because they usually play complete junk.

It is 99% junk but they do occasionally play Foos so yeah they play this one a few times a day.
