Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Nice vocal performance here! There’s a lot of musicality in all aspects and potential to make the tune even stronger.

Constructive Comments: The vocal is a bit too far back in the mix. I don’t like the guitar tones: acoustic too brittle and lead too raspy for my taste (note: *my* taste). The rhythm section isn’t swinging quite enough IMO.

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Nice acoustic sound and “Yesterday” vibe in the arpeggio pattern. Overall nice sound and vocal performance.

Constructive Comments: I don’t like the “Axl Rose” pronunciation on “lazaaaay”. This is nice but it doesn’t grab me with lyrics. And that’s just me of course–see what the overall results are from others.

Reviewer: Nigel Barrett

Positive Comments: Instrumental version of a vocal tune? Difficult to score with conviction as it is.

Constructive Comments: Major tuning issues on this track! Guitar sounds flat! Timing is all over the place too. I appreciate that a lot of this is not timed using midi but it could be so much better if the two issues above could be resolved.

Reviewer: Nigel Barrett

Positive Comments: Really liked the vocal performance – a bit David Coverdale at times which was great!

Constructive Comments: Standing on the pavement by our old front door – as that line starts I could hear the pad chord coming there instead of four bars later. It could really build from there. I would start the build up of the tune much earlier. Each time the rhythmic nature of the song started to kick in it then faded away which left me wanting more hence low score from me is for arrangement. Because of the tone of voice and my association with the vocal with the Whitesnake frontman for me this is more Rock than RnB. I’d kill for a voice like this.

Positive Comments: Reminded me of some Al Jarreau and later RnB stuff. A great voice in there!

Constructive Comments: Poor poor quality recording but that’s OK. Can you revisit the tune and rerecord it with some rich modern synth patches? Song needs a bit more background percussion to keep it rolling along otherwise as it is it is very ploddy. Background harmonies really added to the chorus.I could hear this with a much more modern production behind it. Some of the backing track is sloppy timing wise.
