"Almost Paradise" is a rock album by me and my friend Brian where we chose to tell a story of our subject. He is a man who grows up with big dreams of changing the world and sees the world for what it really is and is disillusioned by his findings. From here, it's a question of whether or not he finds the courage to move on. The first track actually acts as a spoiler, because it starts the album where the story ends but then Tarantino's it back to the beginning (which was track 2)

Sounds emo, I know, but it was Brian's idea. =p

I am practicing new vocal techniques that I've executed in this song that I hope give my vocals a better sound than on previous songs. One thing this song lacked vocally was better articulation. Here are the song's lyrics:
Another day
Another slave
To the self-destructive way
How did such a life come to this?

Another day
Another pain
Why does the world have to be this way
Why can't I change all of this?

Just look at all them walking by
As if nothing bothers them
Why should I let myself be a part?

What has happened to my strength
The courage to live everyday

What should I have to hide
Why should I fly in the rain

Seen this before
There's always more
Don't lose what you're living for
There is so much more to life than this.

When I view
A start anew
Wish I could go back to what I knew
Why did I have to learn of this?


Pretty good!

Some of the lyrics kind of clash for me but overall i like them. I think you should redo this song with your new mic!

Pretty Decent But...

The song was great. I really like the chorus and the verses but the intro (Before the second guitar) it sounded a bit off beat?? and strange to me... but If you wanted to put it that way I am TOTALLY fine with that. Good Job!

you never cease...

...to make me love your music. i'm downloading every song of yours that i review, and i'll probably download alot of your stuff.



Liked the chours vocals and the guitar. The verses were a bit emo as were the lyrics but it was still cool. Loved the like screamo in the background.

Setu-Firestorm responds:

Hahah! Yeah, they were emo. But I'd like to stress that I'm not emo (although my main lyrics writer is quite emo), but the subject of the album's story and theme is a bit emo in itself, so I had to sing as if I was this character in his emo phase.

Thanks, though. I'm glad my vocals turned out better than they usually do.


i like this song, except you need to have a better quality microphone.
