Like it. The production is really excellent. I'm glad you have been  
able to get together with your lyricist friend. You create some very  
good original songs together. The middle 8 is nice and the song  
writing and guitar work is very good as usual. You've mixed the drums  
in at just the right level I think. They certainly are believable -  
and, like come alive, have a "Mike Carlyle' sound to them especially  
the fills and the pause/fill towards the end [Does anyone else think  
that even as non 'real' drummers, we have a drumming style?]

I've always thought the ns was just a little too 'studio' sounding -  
you are right about the toms and the Sonor ones are a lot better.

Good luck with Foolish U. Sounds like fun.

You've wetted my appetite with the new kit any chance you could post  
up a link for us other doggieboxers? I generally use the Yamaha kit -  
which I think also originated from a link you posted, but its always  
good to have a range of kits available :)

All the best
