FEEL INSPIRED BY DOPAMINE"
I feel inspired by Dopamine... inspired to write new music. When I first started making music 7 years ago, I knew I had a long way to get where I wanted to. Recently, I have felt much closer. Now, I hear Dopamine, and realize I still have a ways to go. Their music is absolutely beautiful. Especially track four, "bottle thrower." It isn't so much the lyrics "You're a bottle thrower, set me free," but rather, the way it is sung. Not only is the singer's voice wonderfully melodic, but it blends in perfect harmony with the music and transports you into a world of wonder and amazement. When you go a couple of tracks deeper into the album, to "nickels and dimes," you're again sucked again by music that is reminiscent of the beginning of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven." The music stays harmonic, and the voice is still melodic. They show their range a little bit in track 10, "one:way ticket." It's got a faster pace and a heavier, distorted guitar. It's not as good as the rest of the album, but it's still worth listening to just to hear their different abilities.

love it! It's one of the most original, beautiful, and slightly disturbing
works I've heard in a long time. Being a musician myself, I truly appreciate
strange combination of nico and led zeppelin. It's really good, very
cold and quite relaxing."
