The instrumentals, more specifically the guitars, had a bit of a Stone Temple Pilots feel to me here, with the vocals or maybe vocal effects/harmonies giving it an 80’s prog vibe; very cool/original blend. Moving on to the guitar solo, which was right up my alley, it reeked of blues and attitude. It then seamlessly moved into a mellower vibe before cranking into the huge, vocal soaked, outro chorus; definitely a nice touch. But what caught my attention the most, very surprisingly, was how cool the track ended; I love that cymbal decay and whispering “ha” thing or whatever that was! A song can’t rank high in my books if it doesn’t exit as badass as it enters and this tune definitely accomplishes that. White Window is a hard rocking tune from a hard rocking band and it’s great to see another group doing what Last Bullet is trying to do… and that’s resurrecting the state of Rock n Roll! Rock on Time Giant \m/ – Brenden Armstrong
Ryan Watson – Rhythm Guitarist of TimeGiant shares his thoughts on Last Bullet’s Jet
The bands tongue-in-cheek lyrics leave you grinning with a mischievous smirk with lines including, “I’m gonna tap that, mile high, violate you in the sky. No jeans, mini-skirt, show you how my throttle works”. Last Bullet is an obvious Jack Daniels drinking, hard rock quintet singing about the glorified life of rock n’ roll overindulgence. The harmonized guitar work throughout the track is incendiary to a guitar player’s ear, and the ending solo shows the obvious talent of an accomplished musician. Last Bullet is a band making waves in the Toronto scene, and with explosive 3-minute tracks like Jet, you can expect to see them taking over on a much larger scale. – Ryan Watson
