    Takes a whole lot of courage to seek feedback. On that merit alone I am a fan. Now to the music and my opinions. Intros on all songs- one of them runs 40 sec., and the payoff is the most shopworn lyric in all DIY songs "well I don't know". OUCH- You can do better Tune your instruments. The guitar is especialy out. Fair enough strumming. I'm not hearing hooks, interesting bridges. WAY too much slow dirge type grooves and lyric content. Vocals sound a bit contrived-dial down the Tom Waits. Mix in some 2/3 part harmonys to punch up and accent. You have potential, but need a LOT of direction. Not trying to slam you- follow your dream, bro! Keep at it, and who knows?
