Song: The Ride Home

Reviewer: Dave Haddad (CenterPeace)

Positive Comments: Right away I like the song, the intro says it all. Then it only gets better. Tasty parts, love the fretless bass. Very nice chord progression, feels happy and exhilarating. I feel a little Bruce Hornsby with the drum machine and electric grand. I like the simple but very effective parts the song hits you with melody right away. Let me know you’re a good composer. Super fun song!!

Constructive Comments: The drum programming is a little chessy. then there’s that little ‘hiccup’ around 1:06, too bad you couldn’t copy another bar right there. This doesn’t sound like analog? The syth that pans from one side to the other I think was a bit too loud in the mix. Otherwise the string parts you have are placed well in the mix. My only real complaints or criticisms are production. Of course you are limited to instruments and musicians who are available and/or affordable so I do understand. This song could be so much better if you had live musicians work out parts and then track it for you live or 1 at a time. Wow I can only imagine how great it could be. Listen to some of my songs and let me know if you like the rhythmic production, perhaps I could do some live drum tracks for you. Good luck!
