I have heard this song so many times but never officially commented on it. This is one of the very best indie songs I have ever listened to. It's one of those songs that just ripens with repetitions...a true work of musical art and craftsmanship.

Hi Dazed,
Desperate is excellent. Musically/lyrically and the vocals really shine. Reminds me of Spooky Tooth meets Bryan Adams. Drums, guitar work excel and I think the vocals are the real carrier here as they are so well done. Great collab guys.

I know I have done reviews on this piece before But I freaking really can relate to this. there was a time in my life when I thought I was going to have to resolve to desperate means to feed my family. Yes I have been this man before. excellent man and very emotional for me every time I listen to this. Desperation is always just one step behind and if we slip it may just be the step that starts it all. Excellent . Fantastic Job. Incarnate Word.

WOW! 103 reviews, you must be kidding me. But definitely you deserve this high amount of reviews. This is powerpack stuff, very very outstanding and inspiring, any person would relate to the lyrics itself already. And your power voice is really bringing out the essence of a hard rock song, love it very much. And the arrangement (the addon) was so perfectly done, like they are match for each others. Thanks to Brian, very skillful artist.

PS : I am not moving, please don't kill me! But I can't put my hands in the day otherwise how can I type this message? LOL! Luckily, it is a unloaded gun.

Wonderful story telling, great vocals - very strong track. I really like the dynamics vocal, gives it a nice emotional accent to the story line. Very polished production, experience pays nice dividends when you have two people who really understand recording collaborating. Every touch is purposeful and set just right in the mix.

11/27/09 04:44:58PM @henry-tarnecky:
Dazed and Bri-an, I like this one cause the emotional vocals are right there in front hangin out on your sleeves so to speak... fitting for a desparate man.... nice opening acoustic amd then the drivng chords, and support drums/bass/keys ... plus the chorus has the needed energy dudes! My favorite line is "put the money in the bag"

just found my way out of the TCP studio wood work so to speak... henry

Desperate Man....great sound on the drums Bri_an! Dazed the vocals do well at getting the emotional aspect of the lyric across to the listener (me lol). The lyric is very fitting for this ugly, lingering recession we are in which makes people do ugly things. Well done all around guys!

10/02/09 04:12:47PM @huge-artist:
Well as you are too lazy to make new music I revisit an old fav :)

Which actually is a part of my philosophy,I detest the inbuilt shelf life of music on OMD's (No offence to anyone)
But here is my case in point.

Why shouldn't a song like this go into people's lives the way songs have entered our lives from bands like Zeppelin and all the others?

All it takes is for a song to resonate.
Indeed,if it doesn't resonate,then what is it's purpose?

Some music is good to wreck rooms to,get drunk to,smile laugh to,dance to,sit and think with.
This one?...

This one makes me think.
It seems to em with this current global climate,entirely man made by BIG business to make even more money both and out of it,this song fits today's mood.
That quiet desperation of the unknown millions,living complex lives with circumstances they don't always control.
They needed a song,and this one should suffice.

It's a beautiful collab guys.
I hope it stands for decades.

I dig that warbling effect in the start, A phrase that reminds me of a G. Harrison sound, forgot where I heard it, anyway no matter. Good singing, very fine range, right up front. Great bright guitar sound.
Sounds cool. Like the easy listening chord progression. Fine keyboard work. Good lyrics, a story told well, relates to the disposition of the common man. Very EXCELLENT tune. Well arranged. Love that 'eastern' ending sound. Like this Dazed.

06/05/09 01:39:29AM @anaji:
wow. easily the best song i've heard in mixposure so far. A huge reason obviously being the message. It relates to everyone that knows how it is to not have the luck even when it comes almost essential in surviving.

And the music does amazing with backing it up, every detail, every sound. Simply brilliant.

....Just a word of thanks Dazed for letting me partake in what i thought was a great structured and lyrically written song to begin with,.. when i heard it (in the draft stage) the message stood out very clearly to me. It was easy to envolve myself as the getta-way driver in this toon, as all the elements were there for the taking...
Again, my thanks DaZeD. b. :)

I love the sound of guitars on this! I relate to the lyrics - a topic I've been involved with lately. I don't like to do plug my own tunes when I am commenting, but this song is similar to my tune "Hand it Over" in such a cool way - my tune tells the story from the view of the very first time, and this one tells it later down the line. They're both told through the eyes of the family man. You guys did a great job of making this work. It is a heart-heavy song, and the music is excellent to carry the story. Very cool guys!!!

Dazed,
You really have an original voice. I only need to hear a couple of words and I know it's you. Like the arrangement on this song. The lyrics really capture the desperation of the situation and it comes through in your vocal delivery. The other Bri-an(ha) did a great job on whatever changes he made.

10/23/08 01:04:30AM @big-daddy-cee:
the first thing that grabs my attention is the vocal....one of those true (to me anyway) authentic rock voices....a lil bit smoky....a lil bit gravelly.....and chock full of emotion!...would love to hear this track again once it's mastered(is it here?)

Never too late for such a good song. Really great vocals, so truely expressive; fine lyrics, well written-clear & gets the meaning across well. Love the touch of acoustic, fine pause, then a good keyboard work behind your vocals for variance. You are upfront just spot on & all instruments resound in a perfect sound level. Fine sounds follow your good DYNAMIC singing complimenting & carrying your through superbly. Like the touch of eastern into & extro. Love this Dazed.
EXCELLENT. A real fave. -Vesa.

08/27/08 05:13:21PM @akashaman:
well , i agree with most of the comments mentioned as well :
pretty much an epic tune.
love the strings toward the end , really nice. the sentiment is nice as well. vocals performed excellent !

only thing that imo , detracts from the over all track is it seems a bit , as a whole overcompressed & or squashed.
there are alot of dynamics in the song that might be getting lost due to the high limiting factor.

great work over all tho : thanks alot for share.

Desperate Man is a really great track. I like the backward tracking guitar intro and outro. The strings are used very tastefully and I love the way the chorus refrain ends on a major chord. The lyrics are well written, very introspective and sang with expression. This has all the elements of an epic rock anthem. We're all desperate men!

Better late than never...this song is a great one on several different levels. Certainly just the music is quite compelling all on it's own. The mixture of instruments and tones is perfect. The playing all around is great. But then add in the vocals and wow...one terrific layer on top of the first! Dazed...superb vocal delivery, great vox and lyrics. Brian also did wonderfully in this and I hear his influence particulary in the string melody.

This is for sure a stand-out song man!!....thanks for the DL. ~Blake

07/09/08 09:30:01PM @chronamut:
hey dazed..

love the reversed effect at the beginning - def. an underused technique.

Very professional sounding song! There is however a bit of sidechaining going on where the guitar and drums overlap each other in sound - not sure if you intended that to happen or not..

good song though!

D has already done all the technical stuff,which is his strong point,so I can concentrate on my strong point,how the song amkes me feel :)
With a title like that,it had to deliver that desperation...
Daxed,have said since coming here that you are one of the best singers on the WWW,and this reinforces that belief.
You go from the introspective fragility to the outpouring of desperation.
Excellent lyrics as well mate,lyrics are something I really enjoy in songs.
Brian,well brian is a dimaond man in my book,he so gets into the music he makes,he gets into the soul of songs and let's them be what they want to be FULLY.
Excellent collab gents,I fully expect this to become a radio classic.

From memory, in my review of the earlier version I mentioned some slight clashing between the drums and the electric Rhythm guitar which I thought were distracting for the clear brilliance of the song itself. Bri-an's drums are just right to my ears. The guitar and drums are now perfectly in synch and the use of the strings operates to turn the spotlight onto that sensation chorus section. Wow, this song is now shining bright. Great piece of work. Love it.


Cheers

Congrats on that beautiful heart-work, Dazed and Bri-an. I'm blown away by that fantastic drum presence (and the room effect on them), and especially the fine background arrangement shows your profession... subtle orchestra and finest synth cream.... and that SINGER!!!
Pascalinity mix master says: WELL DONE!!! Ok, I'm not so good with praising my own know how... just wanted to say: this song is a touching one, this is GOOD!

Dazed, i wanted to thank you for taking the time to critique that problem track of mine .. Cinderella. your observations and thoughts are valued and helpful for me. So to return the favour in a genuine way ive made time to get my but over to your page and listen. here's some thoughts about Desparate Man-- in short,, Really cool work.

This track,,, has several stunning fine aspects that make it soar:

1-that acqustic playing at the intro, then again at 1:50 etc. is beautiful and so top notch. really cool chords picked there. i love that progression.

2- those pizzacatto keys that come in gently at 1:50 are feel good mama!!!
(okay that doesnt make sense,, but i cant find better words to say it ;;LOL)

3- The vocal comes in and by the tone of the voice and talent of the singer,, aside from the lyrics, the vocal says, this is the real deal- pro rockers at work.

4- i think there is cool quality to the phrasing and feel of the chorus refrain, especially 'im a desperate',, killer delivery and phrasing on the way that comes out.

5- At 2.15, is one of those sublime perfect moments,, a perfect place,, in the vocal and instruments working together to create the scene in sound- sound that becomes a part of the feelings of the listener.

cool lyrics..

shane for The DEEP

Dazed and Bri-an,

Desperate Man captures the essence of personal introspect offered with musical performances that add to the inflection of your smokey smooth vocals.

I enjoyed the melody and intricate blending of live instruments weaving their way throughout Desperate Man.

Nice for the headphones...deserves closely paid attention...

Cheers,

ZEST

P.S. Oh ya...forgot to mention....iMS ROCKS !!!!
