I listened to some other songs by this group and its different , new , fresh ideas and pretty darn good in a way that it needed to be.
At first I thought whaaat the , then it came out sounding darn good , I liked it a lot.

Its about time some new tunes come around.
Reason is everything was starting to sound repetitive , you know over and over and over again , then over and over again.

Okay over and out ,,, Roger that.
