Like I've said before... not noticing the drum tracks is the best 
possible compliment.

As for the vocals, I'm very torn. Most people have been giving me 
similar feedback. I posted a link to the songs on the Fender Discussion 
Page and, if I had to guage the results, they'd be overwhelmingly in 
favor of Kevin NOT singing anymore.

He's a failry good lyricist. I don't know if I am. I'd feel a little 
funny singing words that I wrote.
