Love the funl feel of this one, mixed with rock. Superb, man!!
Okay, very very very tight track, you have an incredible voice, and the track empowers it, oh wow, that's some real production. I love the premise of the whole thing, A girl you met who looks like a girl named Kelly, that is awesome. The lyrics rock, the chorus is catchy as all Hell, with some great backing vocals. The guitar solo has some great, fast-fast guitar... thingies. INCREDIBLE song. I mean, with the description you give to her doppelganger, God only knows how much of an angel Kelly is (or demon, I don't care, she still sounds like a hottie).
The singing too, really reminds of the Jersey sound, and the lyrics which ride the fence between sublime and child-like (the word sublime is in the lyric!), are also highly typical of Jersey rock.
What a beautiful song, a true joy to listen to. If I have only one criticism, it is that I would have used rim-shots and not a heavy snare during that first verse. :-)
Still all in all this is a fantastic tune, tight and fun, and funky too!!
Great job, Killer sound.
This tune has it all, Musicianship,vocals,lyrics, power, and humour too! Another radio hit for sure, this song lacks nothing. I'd love to see this one live.
Simply stated: You've got it!
I'd wish you luck with this song, But don't think I need to. All you've got to do is market it right, and you've got a hit!

The lyrics however, are right out of the Robert Cray playbook, full of betrayal and romantic duplicity. This is one of the best mp3.com.au entries I have yet heard!
Great music, great delivery. In regards to this style/genre, It's my opinion that you delivered this with excellence. I wouldn't change a thing.
'Mid Life Crisis'
Again, an excellent tune. Flawless delivery.
'Get it Right This Time'
Nice work here also. By now, it's clear to me that you're a seasoned performer. I'm impressed.
'Light The Flame'
This reminds me a bit of the 'Red Hot Chili Peppers'. Diversity seems to be one of your outstanding qualities as well. Very easy to get into the groove on this one.
'Not Quite Kelly'
Wow, I really enjoyed this one. Great pop-rocker. I'm hearing some cool 50's-60's elements that really make this song for me.
Final notes: Lot of talent, great production, good mixes. Very enjoyable stuff. Keep making music!
Pros: I like the feel of this track, for the most part, some nice guitar work here, such as in the solo. The lyrics are great, sung with sensitivity and diction, not an easy task.
Cons: I think it'd be much better if the riff, instead of repeating Am E three times, went Am F last time, because that sets you up with the 5th of the major (C), and would give the riff a greater sense of progression and movement. Mix-wise, the vocals are a little too sunk into the mix, and need something to spark them up, because your voice isn't quite doing it for me right now - compression or a little better suited verb might work (currently your verb sounds very processed, fades too quick, and bounces). The drums are a little weak sound wise - a little quiet, a little muffled and the snare needs a LOT more attack. I'm not convinced on the piano, it needs to be played with a lot more groove, Elton style, to help rather than hinder the track in lifting off. The backing vocals also need to be sung with more sensitivity to the groove.
Ironically, I think in the end the track "lacks a little charm, lacks a little grace". It's nearly there, but needs just a few pushes/shoves in the right direction
Although I don't hear a hook here this is a good CD filler
