Hi There - from the title I was half expecting something *really* challenging but what I got was  the usual great commentary and insightful lyrics (love the line about looking at a screen and not into the eyes, it's easier to lie) and a really catchy song.
Your vocals sounding great too and really suit the production and the theme!

CS,
Liked to the intro and into a neat verse and then the tempo change for the chorus. Smart lyrics as ever.
Then we go off on the AI alien rap and phycodeletic solo, which I thought was absolutely fab :-)
The production and vocals are so much more confident. No issue with structure either, it works for you, go with it.
Cleaver, fun and catchy.
Kept my attention throughout.
 :)

Hi Suzy
Another fun scary song from you!
I mean scary in the lyrical sense if you know what I mean  :D Robots taking over and what-not.
Lots of mad twists and turns holds interest for 4 mins
Good work from the left coast  ;D

Paul
Sorry I didn't mean to scare you Paul ;D ;D And I don't really think robots are taking over...at least not yet   :o :o
With all the ADD out there, it's hard to keep anyone's interest for more than 2mins, so glad it kept yours for 4mins ;D ;D

I'm writing as I listen. It has your distinctive style which I really always enjoy. Love your vocals. Lyrics are fun. Great commentary on current society. Reminds me of Sparks and the Residents, but with a fresh sweetness from your voice. Really enjoyed it.

Hi Crystal Suzy,

The lyrics are pure genius, so witty & apt. The way you effortless blend in those sound effects is amazing.

Wrote you a long response. . . and it timed out on me.  I'm not sure if that's the new forum, or something in my computer. . . but lately, I haven't been able to leave anything here that took any time to think through and type. 

I'll re-do it later.  Past my bedtime now.

Really good.
So much creativity, I was reminded of Zappa.
I was drawn in at the beginning with that first tempo change. 
The rest of the song is fun with concise insightful lyrics   
I like the guitar solo. 

Well done.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

And there you have it.
