I thought the music was ok, the singing although is quite hard to hear in some parts. The lyrics seem pretty good, a bit repeatative, but that's just the choros, so I can't really judge based on the part that is suppose to be repeated.
I think the rythem for the lead guitar should be different, it seems that while listening it comes to focus more on the bassline, which is ok because the bassline is good. In some parts the guitar is just repeatadly playing the same notes, I think making the rythem for it more complicated might put more focus on it, or atleast have it sound a little better. This last paragraph pretty much just describes the chorus, the part where the singer says, "gotta go back".
I understand that this was made a while ago, and as you said, even 8 years before submitted to newgrounds, I am not telling you this so you can go remake your band and change this song, but just pointers so maybe to change any future music you possibly conceive. Good work, for an old recording, this is actually really good, but I can't change my score based on an excuse, sorry.
