Can this song break your voicebox? moopuns
Pretty much what I was thinking throughout the song.

The verses are low and mellow, easy going... But it's just an introduction to the choruses, which you can sing in the same low octave, but is performed two octaves higher in falsetto. And when I say my voice couldn't handle it, I mean I had to pause the game and get a drink of water before having to play it in a lower octave!

But, once I got used to it, it was really fun, singing about failing to be a normal human after being a recluse. The harmonies, though, provide great backup if you sing the wrong parts (which I did). AND I learned I was a liar!

Overall, a strong addition to DLC, but it is tricky and not a strong powerhouse song that REALLY shows Chris's vocals. If you love singing in falsetto or a Beatles-esque harmony song, check it out.

long intro, cool bridge, nothing much really HGinCT14
The Day I tried to Live is the last song of the pack and it is right in the middle of the other 5. not really totally boring like Rusty Cage, but not something that everyone would want to buy like Fell on Black Days.

With that said, the verses do have some cool stuff on toms and the bridge has the ride/tom/snare thing going on that is really groovy and fun to play. what will catch a lot of people though are the 3snare hits littered through out the song. just pay attention and it'll be a lot of fun.

That's every Soundgarden song reviewed and I recommend buying the entire pack for drummers. guitarists and singers may be a different story.
