Re: Madmanís Eyes (New Song)

Not a fan of this tune at all. Album version definitely sounds better than the live ones to me but it's still blah.

    No, itís definitely there. Itís quickly irritating me along with the sound that sounds like a lane drift alarm that happens near the beginning before the vocals

    Sure, but it'll be Dave by himself in front of a green screen acting weird.

    Edit: or a lyric video.

    and what singles have they released from recent albums that were good and moved the needle? AFTW's singles were absolutely horrid choices. CT had good songs (besides CT itself) but they didn't really do anything to make people pay attention to them. BW was a swing and miss by not releasing shake me. Y&M has had staying power live and WIA does simply because of its tie to roi.

    it might not be "easily likeable" but they've released so many singles like that that didn't do much for them. they needed something that is in your face. this single packs the biggest punch since grey street.

    Re: Madmanís Eyes (New Song)

    This is the first time in a long time that a single released by the band is something I actually want to play over and over again. So that’s a good start for me.

    Agreed, I've listened to it several times since yesterday. However, I liked it live when I heard it so I was interested in hearing the studio version.

    I don't think I love this song, but I think I like the way they recorded it, so I hope that bodes well for me liking the rest of the album.

    This song sounds like what an AI would create if you prompted "modern DMB song with that middle-eastern flavor." I was hoping the studio would help, but it's just not doing it for me. Will try more later in a better mood.

    I like the song aside from the chorus which I don't think fits.

    I feel like if I was a DMB hater this song would be a perfect example of why they’re bad. They did as good of a job in the studio as they could have done. But the songwriting is horrific. Dave can still write a hell of an instrumental as he’s done here. But every vocal section is a mess

    Re: Madmanís Eyes (New Song)

    It feels weird to absolutely love every aspect of this song aside from the chorus. Iíve tried for a while to enjoy the whole thing but I just canít. To me, the chorus is as cringe as DMB can get. ďFree the beastĒ level cringe. With that said, I like how it was recorded and I do love the rest of the song so overall Iíll take it as a win. Just wish they took the verse/pre-chorus mood and went in the same direction for the chorus.

    Ask and ye shall receive...

    Verse 1:
    He walks the streets with a gun in hand
    A mad man with a plan
    He's got a message to send
    But it's one of violence and hate

    Chorus:
    With every shot that he fires
    Another life is taken higher
    And the people scream and shout
    As the mad man's gun spouts

    Verse 2:
    He's got a flag on his back
    A symbol of his attack
    He's got a mission to complete
    But it's one of destruction and defeat

    Chorus:
    With every shot that he fires
    Another life is taken higher
    And the people scream and shout
    As the mad man's gun spouts

    Bridge:
    The streets are filled with fear
    As the mad man draws near
    But in the midst of all the chaos
    We must find the strength to rise above it

    Chorus:
    With every shot that he fires
    Another life is taken higher
    But we'll keep fighting for peace
    And love will always be the power

    Outro:
    So let's come together
    And put an end to this madness
    We'll stand strong and unite
    For a future free of violence and hate.

    This is kinda how I feel. It sounds great, but I'm just not a fan of the chorus.

    I think BW single selection was great. AFTW was meh with Mercy, BAD with If Only. CT was terrible across the board (again with single selection).

    With Break Free having been around for a while and with positive regard, it wouldve made for a much better single.

    Re: Madmanís Eyes (New Song)

    Interesting tune, certainly not the worst thing they’ve released in the last decade. But holy moly the mix sounds sounds so compressed. I know mastering tastes have changed since The Good Albums but basically every detail gets lost when there’s more than a unison line happening. Made me feel claustrophobic.

    It's very possible Madmans might be the best song on the new album. We will see.

    This is the best single they've put out in 20 years.

    Some of you guys are just permanently mad. They have a BTCS-style song as the FIRST SINGLE from the new album, and you're disappointed? What else do you want??

    It's been stuck in my head all day today. Liked the live version and think it came out really well in the studio.

    I don’t want to be ants at a picnic but I kind of wish they went with The Only Thing. Nothing against MME, I like it, but it’s one of those songs you kind of know what the studio version will sound like. TOT keeps ya guessing

    What are your thoughts on the mixing? It feels hollow/passive to me. I'm definitely underwhelmed with the studio version after seeing how amazing the song is live. Even when i blast the song in my car/with headphones, it doesn't sound as strong and/or "in your face" like Big Whiskey, BTCS, Crash, etc.

    Re: Madmanís Eyes (New Song)

    They've made this kind of song (several times) before, to much better results. Which is kind of impressive because how many "middle eastern" scale songs can a rock band make.

    But the truth is that MME borders on self parody which is a good indication that it's time to pack it up, which I assume is what DMB will do in terms of studio output (the several solo songs on the tracklist of a supposedly DMB album also underscores this). The ACDC chorus, the on the nose lyrics, the stilted arrangements- these all represent a substantial dip in taste and an inability to reach former heights.

    Re: Madmanís Eyes (New Song)

    To me, it sounds almsot exactly how I thought it would. Sounds like a slightly more produced live version, and they added just enough layering but not too muich where it got cheesy or tacky. Didn't add that much, but added enough.

    I think production wise it's pretty good overall, I just think the song itself isn't very good. Chorus is really bad and doesn't fit, and the rest of it sounds forced, trying to replicate their old sound. It's a good effort but it just kind of falls flat to me. But as far as the recording itself, I wouldn't change a thing, about as well as you could have recorded/produced it. Has that kind of Samurai Cop production style which makes sense because that was also Alagia/Evans. Sam Cop is another song that was produced to perfection, but it's just a terrible song. Perfectly polished turds

    Honestly this range in reactions to one song is pretty on point for the DMB fanbase
