I agree the last half is awesome ham-man, but the first is great too. The bass was, as expected, amazing.

I actually really dig this. I wish it was a bigger progression from Traced in Air, but then again the first song they released was a bit different and I didn't like it as much. Still, album is gonna be sweet

First time hearing a song have too much bass and not enough bass at the same time. Bass is in your
face but it still sounds thin overall.

You guys realize this probably isn't the final studio cut? I love reading bullshit about production upon first time sample songs. These guys are way too into themselves to put out mediocre production.

To the dumbos hung up on the "hobbit-sized" line:

That's a reference to fairly recently discovered 1m-tall hominid homo floresiensis, which has been often discussed in the popular press as the discovery of a hobbit-sized human specie.

The lyric is not a reference to Tolkien's fictional race, and it's not indicative of a fantasy bend to the lyrics.

Kind of boring. The vocal melodies are pretty much the same as always. Lyrics are pretty much about the same stuff; a bit too cheese ball for me. Bass is too high in the mix. Excellent musicianship. Just not very interesting.
