Reviewer: David James
Positive Comments: I like the piano line. Strong lyric. The vocalist delivers a compelling performance and lovely use of backing vocals. The song has a strong melody, with the ‘California Sky’ line delivering the hook. Shades of Al Stewart in the song.
Constructive Comments: I’ve marked down the instrumentation because I think drum track is too intrusive, for example I would have left it out of the intro and first verse..introducing it later to build the track. And perhaps I might have replaced the synth with a subtler pad, just to give a hint of strings. Having said all that I like the song. The melody lingers in the mind which is the sign of a well crafted song.
