The guitar playing was good
Your voice was good, but you should try to sing a little "harder"..

8/10

Hmm, I always thought you used a drum machine. I rather enjoyed it. I didn't think your voice was unenthusiastic, just really low.

It wasn't band, your vocals need a little work and where are the whoa-ohs? Fix that and I'm sold. Your "I Wanna Be Sedated" was great though, you gave it a good edge with the guitar and little lead parts.

Gotta get to that. Thanks for checking out Sedated though, appreciate it!
Thanks to everyone who listened, it means a lot to me. :)

You should sing "HIGHER", not "harder". One scale up. But clearly your voice doesn't have a chance to accompany the music, so what you should do is maybe lower the tune of the song (2 or 3 tunes should be enough), and then try to sing one scale up. "Higher". The instruments are perfect, but a higher speed would be even better, in my opinion.

Basically your saying to tune down my instruments and then sing in the next octave?

Precisely, I meant octave. I'm sorry but I miss some english terms :)

Tune down your instruments a bit, and then try singing an octave higher, I think it would be awesome!

music's almost perfect...
vocals sux
IMO
It's always here with covers - u're starting to listen and think - "man, i can't differ original from their..."and than vocals starts and especiouly that "e-e-e-e" (dk why pointly that) and u think "Man, it's better to smash your head of the nearest wall"

listen others
Oh, man, cover of ramons ("I wanna be...") is awesome and also is the coolest thing u've done :D

What really frustrates me is how everyone says Sedated is better than the others! It's way older than all of the others too! I'm trying to figure out what makes it so much better. Is it the vocals? I think it's that, now, my range is bigger, but then, it was kind of a strain to sing that song, so it sounded kinda cool, but when you can properly manage, it loses "punch"...you know? It's driving me up the wall! Should I up-tune every song I sing so I push my range?

sorry lol

Huh? What the hell does that first paragraph mean?I got it, he means that usually when he's listening to a cover it's alright until vox come in, and the chorus parts sound crappy because they're high and clipping. lol
I added woah-oh's and changed the link (stupid MySpace), w00t!

Like I said to you before, that's a great job. I wouldn't whine about the vocals too much, they're impossible to do as well as Dexter, he's really sovereign at it. Of course, you can try to improve them a bit though...

The bass drum isn't exactly the same as it's supposed to be at some points, but that's a really small "mistake" I just noticed, hah. Otherwise a really nice job!

They weren't so bad. You should try doing stuff that you can't do. Just play simple stuff.
