The song is cool.
But the guitar chart is probably the worst I have played. Tons of breaks where you play nothing, and when you do play, it's really simplistic.

I'm glad I didn't pay for it.

PRO KEYS: Hooray for synthesizers. This chart is awfully rudimentary. There are single notes on beat in a line, arpeggio sustains, and some triplets that you should practice first to get the hang of. Only thing that keeps the song truly exciting is that you can more than 300,000 points purely because of the length of the song alone (over 7 minutes). Okay chart I guess.

Well.. What can I say. Firstly, I don't like at all playing electronic drum beats and that's what this song is all about: two repetitive e-drum rhythms. The first one is kinda easy, But the second one, with that crazy Ride work, needs a lot of drumming technique and cymbal rebound that, unfortunately, the average RB drummers (and their cymbals) don't have.

Didn't play the other instruments, but as a drummer, I'd pass it. Glad I hadn't to pay for this one. ;)

2/5

Pretty monotone. Nicolas-1223
It's a pretty easy, monotone vocal part. That's about it. There's not a lot of vocals in this song, though, and most of the time you'll just be hitting tambourine notes. It's good if you want an easy FC.

I love this chart, but some may not Nicolas-1223
I love this chart. I know I've seen many reviews where people say electronic/drum machine beats are awkward, but this one is actually really fun for me. It starts off with a really awesome kick intro, then goes into a fast swing-style ride beat. Be warned - the same kick patterns in the intro will still be played underneath the ride beat. The second beat is more simple; just a hi-hat/snare/hi-hat beat similar to Holiday in Cambodia (but not as fast) and that takes up the middle of the song. There's also a really neat part that contains an uber-fast yellow drum roll which is awesome. To top it off, there's all these neat electro-drum fills and hits inbetween the beats every so often. It sounds really awesome.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because like I said, not everyone will find this fun; take the 2-star drum review above me as an example. If you are a good drummer, or play drums in real life, you should hopefully have fun with this.

Boring. Nicolas-1223
I'm pretty surprised a synth-heavy new wave song like this has any prominent guitar in it at all. It's quite hard to gold-star this if you don't know what's coming. There's a lot of empty space, and what you do play is really simple and boring. There's one fast trill on the red at one point, and some three-note chords at another point, but the rest is just boring one-note progressions.
