I liked this song too.. To my ears, the timings were OK (and for me
timing is usually a real issue). The thing that jarred for me though
was the sound of the electric guitar - way too digital (and clean
though distorted) sounding for my liking. A dirtier/darker (perhaps a
humbucker guitar?? - I'm imagining this was on a strat or similar?)
more valvey sound would suit the song better I would say.
