Yeah, they asked me to put a link up on here, and ask what people think.

It's rock, basically, there are a few cross-sub-genre parts on the album, I just chose this song as I thought it would appeal to most.

"Kameraki" be the band, "The Funk Song" be the track, for your interest.

Constructive criticism (sp?) please, I have to pass on the reactions :P

Really good but the vocals needed to be louder so you could them. Good guitaring.

The wah, although slightly weird sounds cool. The chug-chug-flurry riff is awesome. The vocals fluctuate between just about tolerable and absolutely awful.

The solo was mostly nice, awesome infact, but there's a phrase between about 3:27 and 3:30 that just sounds like wuh-ank in my opinion. Sounds a bit like he (presumably) isn't really sure of where his fingers are meant to be going but maybe that's intentional. For some reason.

Vocals are naff. Pre-chorus is naff too, it all seems to stop too suddenly. Parts of the drumming put me off too, especially the double bass. Nor do I like the fading at the end.

Wow. I'm feeling critical today.

It probably was intentional, but it sounded rubbish. I just thought the guy would like to know so he can play something else in the future.

Ive said it before and no doubt will say it again, The singing was crap. Usually I'd say "the vocals are weak" or something to that effect but I cant be bothered pussyfooting around. If they want to make it big then they seriously need to work on the vocals. If its just a bit of fun then they were decent enought to get their mates to go and watch them do a few gigs.

Also I didnt like the initial wah-wah guitar part. It just seemed a bit wrong.

The bass was spot on and the drums were (as far as I know) fine (I'm not a drummer and wasnt really listening tbh)

Over all Id say the're good. Nicely paced and well played. Keep up the good work and work on the vocals.

I thought it was pretty good.

Yeah. Vocals are wayning at times, but he creates a nice sound sometimes. The bass and drummer are really good. The guitarist is pretty nice too.

It fills nicely filled out as well, which is rare for an amateur song.

Sounds good to begin, vocals are a bit weak though. My old band had a track called the funk song which blatantly owned this one :D Our vocalist would totally ad lib lyrics on the spot, pure genius. Guitarist needs to learn to walk before he tries to run if you get what i mean, nice bass though.
