Dude, so like, I made this album. (a.k.a. This is my career)

Well, not only me. My cousin and I. Over our winter break this last year, we recorded a set of 12 songs and compiled them into this album. As an act of totally shameless self promotion, I want to share it with the lot of you, maybe get so fans or some criticism, either one appreciated. Here's the link to it. By the way, if you're wondering, I'm the one with the longass hair. If you like rock music, I'd at least give it a go. It's free to listen, after all. Thanks. 
 
Also, if this is considered spam, I won't argue it being locked, not that it would matter if I would. Just saying, it's been a while since I've been on the site, so my understanding of the rules is a little shady.

Fat Catholic Woman - Quirky
Crappy Guitarist Blues - Nice beat
Flow - Soothing
 
The rest didn't really stand out to me.
Not bad though.

Hah . . . yeah, I know. I actually have a legitimate mustache to accompany it. And thanks for hopefully giving it a listen.

Posted by Arkthemaniac

Hmmmmm, interesting. I never really look at Crappy Guitarist's Blues's beat as being notable other than to drive the song.

@captain_clayman: Hah, I can get behind that.

i listened to fat catholic woman and i was like "man i bet they're fans of primus" and then i scrolled down and i was like "...knew it" 
 
yeah this is pretty good stuff.  needs a little work on letting the guitar and bass solo's flow together.

Yeah, you called it. Actually, if you look close, you'll see my profile pic is from the Tommy the Cat music video.

 Anything you post will never be spam... never. Too much, you have contributed to the community, this will be my pleasure. By the way, how is school going. Listening while I type, fantastic.

Thanks, Claude, glad to hear that my time with this site hasn't gone unrecognized. School is, well, a pain in the ass, but I love it to death. This semester, I've got 7 classes, six of which are music. It's one hell of a workload, but I've been taught well in high school, so I have something of an edge up on other people at school. After all, I'm in classes with sophomores/juniors even though I'm a freshman. I've improved as a musician tenfold since I've started, so I have to be happy about that.

@Arkthemaniac: 
 
I'm guessing you still play bass right?
Posted by Arkthemaniac
@Claude: Yep, but on this stuff, I'm doing guitar, bass and vocals. I'm hopeful to find someone to take the guitar if we do anything more, which I hope to. I'm going to college for bass, after all, so It makes sense I'd want to concentrate on it.

Music is good but the lyrics need work.

I Drank All the Lemonade and Ate All the Chips was pretty good.

Hah, I agree. Most of the lyrics were written either on the spot or only a little prior. Considering that the music was written first for most of them, it's more difficult to fit lyrics in that pattern that have both a deeper poetic meaning and good flow.

Hah, I never cared for that song too much. It's gotten a better reception than I ever thought it would, actually.

Wow, Ark. I don't think I've seen you post on here for some time. 
 
I'll have to check out the musak.

Posted by Arkthemaniac

Yeah, Ragnarok, I really haven't been able to bomb it up as much as I would like. Hopefully, I'll be able to reclaim my place on the site sometime this year. 
 
Also, bump for more views. Yes, I'm a shameless self-promoter.

Posted by natural_deadhead

Self-promote all you can. How else are you going to get anywhere without a manager?
Posted by Brockly46

you got something there but like others said it just needs more flow to it

Posted by PenguinDoctor

That forth song title is genius.  I hope the songs are the same.

MY NIGGA ARK!!! 
 
Dood, dig the tunes.  Good job.  The only suggestion I could make is "metronome".  Other than that, I can see where your time away has been going.  You got GOOD, man!
