  • Jon from Santa Rosa, CaThe Harmonica playing reminds me of a couple Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band songs.
  • Brendan from York, Englanddont you mean Vice by razorlight sounds like this.
  • Chris from Belfast, IrelandThis sounds very similar to 'Vice' by Razorlight.
  • Claire from Manchester"Mucky Fingers" doesn't sound like an Oasis song it sounds like Chaz and Dave!!! But i think it's a great song anyway as it's really different from their usual sound.
