Review by Nervous
Artist: Spit SyndicateEnjoy today, because tomorrow is promised to no one. We have all heard that message a million times. The overall message is that, since death is inevitable, you should not waste time allowing the barriers created by living from enjoying the actual state of being alive. This message is hammered home when one experiences the death of someone whom you are close to, or if one should experience a close engagement to a potentially life-ending event. According to the notes delivered with this single by the duo from Sydney, Australia, that appears to be their motivation for recording this song. The track, produced by M-Phaze, is an almost Kanye-ish confection that manages to rock mellow drums over a disco-based sample. The two emcees from Spit Syndicate do an adequate, but not magnificent, job of delivering the message I stated above. With this being their debut single from their new album "XXX", they should have come with something a little harder. Though this track does not do anything wrong, it does not do a whole lot to leave a lasting impression after the last snare track drum fades from your headphones. Though it would work well in a club environment, and would probably sound a lot nicer in a blend; it just does not do enough to make what I hear TODAY excited about what they might have to say TOMORROW.
