HOLY CRAP, OMD! I almost don't want you to listen to ANYTHING from my band, theCAUSE, especially 'cause we don't even HAVE a rhythm guitarist!
Just kidding man - if there's one thing I've learned in the past 10 years, it's to accept constructive criticism as just that - nothing personal, just one person's opinion and take what you can from it, 'cause you just may learn something!
I will agree that their RG needs his volume beefed up. I think that, alone, could have done WONDERS for that China>Rider - which was still, as I said earlier - a really hot version. If his volume is up, you may hear more interplay btwn him and the drummer, as you mentioned - as well as btwn him & the lead player.
I love playing that song - even with only one guitar in the band...kinda fun trying to cover all of the ground! Our keyboardist plays a whole bunch more rhythm in that song, to keep it from sounding thin.
Good critique, tho - you're a listener. I love listeners....
PS - DON'T LISTEN TO OUR STUFF, I COULDN'T TAKE THE BASHING!!!
