Hey Floyd

Well someone recently uploaded the full song of Hey Floyd on youtube(its since been taken down) I tried fighting temptation but couldnt resist not listening to it. :oops:

Its waaaay better than the 30 seconds we've heard, the song starts off pretty average then goes into a completely different direction that totally took me by surprise. Its nothing short of awesome! :D

I cant wait to get the full Album!!

Yes it was a leak, as we get closer to release its inevitable that it will leak as some get their hands on the album early. In fact about half the album is avaliable to listen on youtube right now. I am going to wait till Monday dont want to spoil it.

As for Hey Floyd the initial pace is reminiscent of The Kids then slows down into reggae. The transition is great. :) The lyrics are cool and mysterious and invokes alot of imagery.

What is the instrument used @ 3:05 just past the reggae part? Sounds like salt & pepper shakers!
Just one little bit thrown in!

Also, love the reference to "Cool Hand Luke" -awesome film!

This song reminded me of a man I used to know. He used to give up too quickly because he was misunderstood. When you get to the heart of the matter, it's a very raw song. Beautiful.

yeah, I think if you break it down, a lot of songs are deep on this album.

Great song. Need to review it.
Just found a live version on Jamirotalk! Nice to see a version of it live.
