Reviewer: Tom Reock

Positive Comments: Great Quality recording, Nice keyboard parts.. Pleasant voice and love the harmonies. Very professional sounding. Reminds me of Amy Grant(shows you how old I am)

Constructive Comments: Would’ve like to hear another section, a bridge of some nature. The vocal harmonies were very nice, but they wasn’t enough of them.

Reviewer: Jonah Wayz

Positive Comments: Very well put together instrumental. Well thought out and executed.

Constructive Comments: Nothing at all to suggest here. I played this twice – it was that good. Climactic, emotional and inspiring. In my opinion, this is perfectly made for a movie. Insert this instrumental at the exact point where the hero has reached rock bottom – and now is on his way back up.

Out of the Gaze of the Evil Eye by Jeff Roberts

Broadjam Artist: Jeff Roberts
Song: Out of the Gaze of the Evil Eye

Reviewer: Jonah Wayz

Positive Comments: Nice vibe. Classic Rock in my opinion.

Constructive Comments: Nothing to suggest here. The arrangement was done well. Vocals sit well in the mix. The feel of the song never changes/bounces – ie no inconsistencies. This is a song ready for the masses.

Sepias Waltz by Floyd Kelly

Reviewer: Junior Murrell

Positive Comments: Background piece. Potential is here with some clarity in the arrangement and production. Can see a fixed version this working its way in to a song library. All the best with it.

Constructive Comments: A little more detail to the production and arrangement would really lift the track. When you bring the hook melody you want to make a statement which says’i am the hook’, don’t think you’ve done that here yet but you’re on you’re way. All the best with it.

Ever Since the Rainbow by Jeff Roberts

Reviewer: Junior Murrell

Positive Comments: The outro vibe reminds a bit of early Santana, Nice. Great vibe. Instruments work well together. Cool song. wish you all the best with it.

Constructive Comments: Perhaps a little work on the overall production and mix quality to increase the definition would help. The chorus/hook is a little lost: I found it difficult to find the title of the song from the lyric if this is was you intended then forget that and you achieved your goal i.e. nothing says the title has be in the lyric – but it would make it easier for the listener to find if they want to go buy it. Like it. All the best.

Thank A Vet by Randal Dunkle

Reviewer: Cindy Dickenson

Positive Comments: Reminds me a Creedance Clearwater Revival song . Has the feel of a Vietnam era song , classic rock . A great reminder that there are still so many out there fighting for our country .I love the lyric that asks “have you ever heard the sound of bullets flying over your head” It takes the listener right there . Nice job , keep up the great work

Constructive Comments: I like the vocal mix for the beginning of the song , I’d love to hear the mix come current after the first chorus . Would give a lot of impact to the song . Start with the classic rock 60’s early 70’s vibe and then bring in another guitar with a current sound, mix the vocals in with a more rich tone after the beginning Classic meets today . Thank you , Awesome job ,

Positive Comments: Completely reminds me of Christmas . I like the mix of all of the traditional Christmas song . Makes me want to be a kid again , complete with the excitement of what Christmas is about. Harmonies were great and I love how the instrumentation adds to the feel Nice job

Constructive Comments: Some added texture to the vocals to blend a little more with the instrumentation would be nice . The mix could be a little more “together” . Overall a great Christmas tune , keep up the great work .

Reviewer: Jimmy Joe Lee

Positive Comments: I come from the Simon Crowell school of review. Knowing that, I really don’t like reviewing the music of others. I think I’m too harsh. I like the opening guitar arpeggio. It has an ear arresting quality. After that I’m into the threes. I could have gone to 2 on a couple.

Constructive Comments: The desire is there, for sure. I think it’s rewrite time. You can do much better. Lyric writing is often work. Once in a while you’ll get lucky but more often than not… you won’t. A dance song with a strong beat doesn’t need words that tell a story as does a country song. This song is not intended for the dance floor crowd. The lyric needs to link line by line. Listen to successful country songs closely. Especially the love ballads. Songwriting is a skill. Unless your extremely gifted, which most of us are not, study and analysis is mandatory. Good luck. I wish you the best.

Reviewer: Jimmy Joe Lee

Positive Comments: Very difficult to judge a piece like this. So much depends on context. It may fit perfectly with what the composer has in mind. As a stand alone song, it has its moments. I liked the more majestic parts as opposed to the sections with the “stuttering” effect.

Constructive Comments: The drum sounds bothered me. I thought it took away from the piece. Timpani’s may have helped. By my taste, the drums were too brittle. Too much high end. Still, it could be appropriate for the intent of the composer.

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: I really like the lead vocals, very unique sound. Very cool sounding drums and rhythm guitar. Very good lyrics as well.

Constructive Comments: I like the song, great arrangement by the way. The only problem I have with it is the beginning part that has no drums. The drums are really one of the best parts of this song – I would start with the drums in the background, because to be honest is sounds a bit out of sync without drums – best wishes!
