Reviewer: Sheena Coote

Positive Comments: I enjoyed listening to this rather soothing instrumental, it has a very lovely bassline. The instrumentation used sounded a bit like an orchestra from heaven. I really loved the piano music which came in with the choir sound singing away in the background. This would make pretty film music for either something where there is movement or perhaps the theme of love.

Constructive Comments: I really loved the piano music and could not play it better myself and certainly the lovely bassline which is memorable and very quietening. I would listen to this music as a way to relax and to calm myself down. I thought it had a enough drama in it when the piano comes in. The composer has a good sense of melody too.

Positive Comments: I found this version of this particular classic both unique and rather fascinating. It is certainly an original take on a well known piece of music and there were some very interesting backing sounds incorporated into it. I did find it somewhat humerous in parts but only as I know the piece so well as a classical piece of music. Quite intriquing interpretation.

Constructive Comments: This person has a great imagination this is obvious and does some rather clever arrangements. I liked all the sound effects that the composer uses throughout the piece and certainly more towards the end. It is a rather groovy version of this classic and could be used in film or television as filler music if contemporary classical that is well known were required. Rather fun to listen to!

Positive Comments: Love the intro with the beat and some great guitar, a real edgy feel. The vocals took me by surprise had a very punk like sound. Some big reverb across this track but works well with the lead guitar curing through the mix. I really enjoyed this feels different, unique but retains good melody and musicality

Constructive Comments: Maybe would have built the drums up more through t track

Reviewer: lost on foot

Positive Comments: Smooth rock with a classic lead vocal, very American. Intro is simple and uncluttered and builds with some good harmonies and lead guitar, pretty much singing along to this song by the end and I don’t say this often but could have and should have lasted at least another 20 seconds The beauty of this track is that it feels this has been easy to put down and that’s the way it should be – nice work

Constructive Comments: Nothing to add just could have done with a little more but you did make me listen twice !

If Your Heart Should Get Lonely For Me by Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

Song: If Your Heart Should Get Lonely For Me

Reviewer: John Masarone

Positive Comments: You have what I believe to be the beginnings of a good song. You have to start somewhere. It is stripped down but some of the progressions have potential.

Constructive Comments: The overall mix is not very good for what would be considered as, “broadcast ready.” However, it is good enough to work from. I’m thinking that the melody line needs a little more flow. Sounds a little too staccato. It is fine for showing a vocalist what to sing. I would use a sound that has more sustain/decay. Like a string instrument. This is all my opinion. These are things that come to mind after listening two times.
