I played this song right when it came out on Guitar, and I didn't like it. I found it awkward to play for the first half, hectic in the wrong way in the second half, with a mess of a solo where they charged the solo.
I posted a review, and people HATED it. So I rethought my stance, I thought up a few excuses for why I hated it when everyone else liked it. I took that review down.
Then I played it again and found I hated it...not as much as the first time, but still worthy of one star. MAYBE two if I'm generous.
Most of the first half of the song is an admittedly rather interesting chord section with HO/PO bits sprinkled around in there. It's not bad, it's not terrible, but it's not great either. Maybe 3 stars for that segment.
Then it gets really boring before the solo.
Then it turns into skittles barfing on a treadmill messy for the solo. Some people like that (I love challenging songs and adored playing stuff like Seventeen and Nevermore), but this is just 'stupid hard', not 'challenging but fun'.
After the solo, it goes into a strum-chord section that...Honestly is just unpleasant to play. I'm not sure if maybe it's my TV or my sound settings, but no matter how well I played it, I could NOT figure out what part I was playing. It was supposedly the guitar after the harmonica solo, but I couldn't hear it so the notes were just an indecipherable mess coming at me with no audio clues as to what it was.
Honestly, I overall like the song, to listen to it. I like the singer, I like the bluesy-jazzy feel to it all, and I have the track on my MP3 player....but to play on Guitar is just unpleasant. It had a kinda good part near the beginning, but then by the end it's just horrid. It's one of those songs I put the controller down and let play itself out.
HAd the song been flipped with the simpler chord section at the end instead of the beginning, I might give this a 2. However, I have to judge based on how FUN the track is, and when the entire final two thirds were an unpleasant mess, it always leaves me with just THE most sour taste in my mouth.
1/5 (I'd give it 0 if I could)
