<3> “Fools Gold” – Both male and female vocals are starting this song. Excellent guitar solo near 1:20. The pair seems to be singing together still, which is nice. This is a somewhat softer song, kind of like The Police or so, but don’t quote me on that please.
<4> “Dead Weight” – This is getting closer to the soul side of rock, it’s got that little bit of funk in it, like when The Stryder lost their singer and Pete took over, but it’s still female fronted. I don’t know, I’m digging it. I think it’s working.
Recently, I’ve given up doing the “Overall Review” at the end of the SBSR, but considering that excuseMesir has gone from a SBSR of their free demo to this five song EP- and with a pretty drastic change- I felt like this needed to be said.
Most importantly, these are five songs. Let’s see where excuseMesir does after this. I have a feeling that they could make a most excellent full length.
