Exotica by Fred Kimmel

Broadjam Artist: Fred Kimmel
Song: Exotica

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: I love the way the song starts out with the drums and percussion instruments, I also like the way the keyboards were introduced – very cool special effects as well.

Constructive Comments: Very cool sounding Electronic Beat – I don’t think that I’d change anything except after 2 minutes I think that I would have brought in a Saxophone however, that’s just my opinion – the song is good just the way it is – best wishes!

Reviewer: Matt Mereu

Positive Comments: Outstanding on every level. Great vocal. Great lyrics. Great arrangement. Great sound.

Constructive Comments: Nothing to improve on. Real market potential. I find that the rustling rocket effect at 1:23 and 2:17 adds nothing, and in fact detracts. An arpeggiated pizzicato in the section which follows might sound good. Best of luck!

christmas is a treasure by tim meyers

Broadjam Artist: tim meyers
Song: christmas is a treasure

Reviewer: Esther G

Positive Comments: It’s a giddy little melody and song. A typical christmas song i might expect to hear over the speakers in a mall around christmas time.

Constructive Comments: I liked the extra vocal harmony added into it at one point.I would suggest to have this song sung either completely with vocal harmonies included or at least to have it sung by a female singer with a less express vibrating voice. Perhaps a voice like Britney or Lavigny… Lighter, in any case.I would also consider adding in a hook, because the way it is now, it’s kind of monotonous and soon saturating.

Jazz Bad by Fred Kimmel

Song: Jazz Bad

Reviewer: Esther G

Positive Comments: I am not an experienced listener to this genre.I liked the vocals mixed with the instrumental.I liked very much the ‘hissing’ sound in the back ground that came into the mix later on. Created a higher level of suspense.I would think this suitable for an action movie chase scene for instance, where suspense is growing to a climax. I am thinking a foot-, bike-, skate chase, rather than a car chase. This is what it reminded me of when listening to it. Hence the title I chose for it.

Constructive Comments: Nothing to add constructively as i am not experienced with this genre myself and lack comparison material.

Your Dad Was Right About Me by Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

Broadjam Artist: Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods
Song: Your Dad Was Right About Me

Reviewer: Esther G

Positive Comments: It’s a nice tune that reminds me of a spring day in the park. Hence, the title i suggested for it.It’s a relaxed melody, that especially at the intro, reminded me of a country rhythm. I could imagine a country singer singing lyrics to it.I can also imagine this melody being used as a background music to a family video or some musical capture of a timeframe in a movie.

Constructive Comments: I am not convinced it’s very commercially attractive though, as in hearing this on the radio. I find it a bit too monotonous for that. You would need some kind of melodic hook, at the very least. But also a larger variety of instruments and different instruments playing different parts, to make this more interesting.
