Great Production , love the build up , great track buddy this is the one for me.
Really like this, excellent thru and thru and very original sounding(and i mean that as a good thing) Thought the Norwegian bit was clever too though.Thumbs
Great tune!!!!!Dug it from the start! Sounds great too!!!Thumbs up
Just amazing music here, can't get enough of it. Vocals remind me of Dave Matthews Band. Good job!! Rated!
Got me wondering what 'Norwegian Wood' is doing in the song? That's a humorous look at someone who thinks they're out of your league, this is more of a motivational pick-me-up, am I missing something?
Very late to the party! Loving the lyricss and the powerful vocal delivery, awesome work!!! Gotta mention the magnificent guitars, percusion, bass and strings!! Is that a little "Beatles" (Strawberry Fields) riff in there??? Subtle, but lush!!! Loving the harmonies too!! Very elegant work througout!!!! What a musical pleasure and a classic waiting to happen!!!
Your right. Wasted years remix is awsome love the drum work would love to experiment with you guys . Good work! Cheers! Kudous and all that ohh la la holla at us! Thank again, Brill of B.H.S
My drummer made me play this for him and he was just sitting there smiling the whole time. He says he likes the title and the words. I like the music. So you got us both on this one.
Good to hear this track again... the positive messages, so inspiring! I liked this song the first time I heard it~ and admire that you take the time and attention to keep tinkering with the mix. I have to say~ this sound killer good cranked up loud! hehe... Marvelous work!! =Bravo= :)
Very Good Song. Keep it up. Johnny O
Way to go ... great stuff and worth the votes..

Hi James, Grant, Anthony and Andrew. Wanted to say a massive congratuations to you on your 16th No.1. Love the message in the lyrics. PJ
Hi James, Grant, Anthony and Andrew. Hope you guys are doing well. I'm very happy to see that you are continuing on your streak of number one hits and I hope that this will be another. I love the meaningful lyrics of this and everytime I hear you your songs sound stronger and stronger. Even better what is so good about this track is that I can really relate to this and I can see a reflection of the choices I've made in my life so far. Well done on this guys. You've got me with this! A big vote from me. PJ
What a great tune this is,Love it. 2:47
Sublime Norwegian wood Brilliant .
Why Alive aren't global superstars yet is beyond me.
Love Wednesday x
Fantastic song, very thoughtful, but in a gentle way. I love the construction of the song, which adds interest and excitement, and it moves along. Honestly this is far better than music being played on the radio here in Australia!
Great tune, sweet vocals, and just a top tune. love it!!
Nicely done! Really like the vocals and guitars, but it's all good...especially like those drums! Excellent mix, smart arrangement and pro production....very easy on the ears. Rated!
Really nice acoustic guitar sound. As simple as it is, I know how tough it can be to get a good acoustic sound. Nice job!
Fandabidozy. Rated Paul.
I liked it before like it even more now. Cheers!
Remixed. Clearer sound quality - especially on the vocal sound and additional drum work.
Yeah nice intro and nicely milked cos it can be. Superb sullen lunge into the vocal - that's a good touch dudes. It's coming thru a little right-sided on vocal (could be left - just rewired me speakers today). Snot a biggy. I get the U2 vibe altho the beatles ref was cool. Soz i not bin around much recently. House moves etc... This is a good song dudes. Thumzup. Maybe lose a touch of bass on the vox might work.
Nice intro! Nice uplifting lyrics very well writen. Production and delveryare really good as well. I like how you lift the track emotion and drop that Beatles riff. Nice touch! Great job on this one.
I have always enjoyed listening to Indie music... and when coming upon an artist like yourself~ it reminds me how messed up commercial radio is, to miss out on such talents. Wishing you the best with your music career~ deservingly!! (Awesome track) =Bravo=
Love the song,big and bright production,perfect pop.
Another top song from you rock stars! Constructively, I think the intro is your weakest point in this really cool tune (For what it's worth?) You guy's never cease to amaze me with your impeccable talent! I got's to believe that somebody has takin' notice to what all of us here at Mp3u already know. "Alive" rocks hard! -Mike
Started writing after taking in the first 2:50..when 2:50 hit, I had to start writing...It was the Beatles, referenced in 2:50 - 3m that set my burning ears on fire...WAY COOL!...vocals - superb, LV has that Bell texture that is so mellow yet edgy too...Tony's vocals are so tight to Jame's…great complementary tones...got that fullness that is so BIG...No sitar ;) Great song, wasted...NOT !! Thumbs!
Very cool optimistic lyrics. The music has a hippie vibe to it - love those background vocals! You guys are a great band. You seem to be able to master every song you perform and the mixing is always excellent.
Another top performance with a Live feel...Shades of U2 "Rattle and Hum" kinda reminds me of Angel of Harlem with this one minus the brass :) Very much enjoyed...peace,Ricky
Yet another superb piece from you guys. I defy anyone to say nothing good comes out of the North East after listening to your work. Superb vocal delivery, the track has pssion energy and and overall delivery .Great work Guys . Peace Paul.
Great song and both the verse and chorus are just as catchy. Very well played with excellent vocals. Nice Norwe gian Wood riff mid-way suits the track and love the pro production guys...Love it..
I really love this!!!
What a sound! Just the start of this is awesome. What's not to love. vocals, delivery, nerve, passion and everything in between.
Real big sound that comes through clear cause of the production and performance. Very nice....
The intro may be a bit too long but once the vocals comes in this is great. It reminds me of Big Country with a touch of U2 thrown in. Lyrics are a little repetitive but the melody is very catchy and the arrangement is very well thought out and executed. All in all a great track, rated. Craig
