Limberlost – Good Fight
All boxes get checked in the production category in “Good Fight”. Drums? Check. They sound like they should. Real and slightly tweaked to lay the foundation. Guitars? Yup. The tone is amazing and the parts are well played, acoustic and electric. Bass? Doing what it should, providing the low end and booming. Vocals? Well, we already talked about that before. YEAYAH!
To flip things on the side for a moment though…I hate to say it but the tune feels a bit long for me. I can see it ending (for a radio mix at least) around the 4:20 mark which is an easy fix if they choose to do so. Don’t get me wrong the song doesn’t let the listener down after that point but let’s face it, attention spans are short these days. It does end a little after the 6-minute mark with some nice arranging to bring it all together.
Last but not least, the video for the song is very cool. It shifts seamlessly between shots of the band playing the song and shots of crisis from the past year (i.e. homelessness, riots, life shutting down in general, etc.). Don’t let that deter you from checking it out though, it may be therapeutic for you. It was for me!
