Destroy The Boy finds funk in the dumpster, the blues at the butcher and soul in the sewer. Acid-washed guitar and the best rhythm section in the cosmos, coupled with a vocal gymnast telling kaleidoscopic tales of the urban experience. Unafraid to wail, Destroy The Boy explores the colour of sound and the texture of thought.

So, the verses an dthe breakdown are pretty cool, but if ound the change into the chorus a little awkward and forced. I also think that the vacalist needs to ask how much of his embellishment/melisma is really needed in the song.... I would like to hear less of hin, and more of the band.

Amazing track. Absolutely brilliant funk / dub. My only criticism is that the vocals are a bit over done. Would like to hear more of the drummer and rest of the band and less of the singer. That said, however, that is just nit picking. This is a stellar performance with some guys that have amazing chops.
