Song: Band of Angels

Reviewer: John Walradt

Positive Comments: Are you looking for some soulful rock with a lovely haunting melody and lyrics that grab you with vivid pictures and meaning? You just found it! The tune is different and memorable, the guitar gives the right amount of grit to a silky melody that moves like gentle waves. You can just picture yourself as you are in between the dream state and waking…and a band of angels are there! Drift into the story that the singer sings for you. The singer’s soulful vocals work just right for this song, bringing the emotion to the side of your bed. This song could work anywhere, and it would be a great song to conclude an album of terrific songs!

Constructive Comments: Sit back and enjoy your favorite glass of wine. This song was composed very well and lyrically wonderful.

Positive Comments: I liked the snare fill that was inserted throughout. It was kinda interesting to hear. I liked how it began and ended with the same snare and gunshot.

Constructive Comments: I’d be curious to hear what it would sound like to have the snare throughout. Maybe just a marching beat, something simple and minimalistic as to not overshadow the vocals and snare rolls.

Reviewer: Steven Furr

Positive Comments: Your guitar has a very pleasing tone. And it’s well played. I classified this song as Folk, but I also thought it could be Country, just add in a crying steel guitar and it’s right there! You have great inspirational lyrics here, they easily describe a very vivid vision of life.

Constructive Comments: I would really like to hear this song in a fully produced version, I think it lends itself well. As I think more of the possibility of a steel guitar, along with bass and drums, maybe vocal harmonies, I can feel my foot starting to tap. Best wishes!

Song: Invisible

Reviewer: John Walradt

Positive Comments: What a personal song of sensitivity and hurt that cannot be ignored! A song with an important message from the soul. The melody is easy to follow, lyrically tells the story clearly, gets to the point, the frustrations, the criticisms from others, the dreams and desires that look so far away. Instrumentally minimal with pounding keyboards to emphasize the emotion. Exasperated, excellent vocals…what else could possibly carry such lyrics…and at the end it ends with hoping to remain invisible to avoid any more pain. This song would work well in several places, from documentaries, things regarding health, or a personal story in a video.

Constructive Comments: Songs like these need to be written and heard. There is so much surface stuff out there and I say there’s very much needed room for art and songs that make you think, make you consider, make you feel and to see things from a different angle. I hope you continue to write these along with all other aspects of life you want to share. Keep going with it!

Broadjam Artist: Nigel Barrett
Song: All of the Above keys only

Reviewer: John Walradt

Positive Comments: Melancholy and lonely, the somber keyboard leads into a forlorn melody, very well composed. I like how the tale, told so many times in many songs, is told in a different way, a different angle. It really has a meditative, lonely, detached and forlorn feel a floating feel of wondering if this is unreal or just a dream, yet it looks you in the face. Instrumentally stark, soft, minimal…it captures the feeling perfectly. It reminds me of “This Mortal Coil,” an album of somber songs from the 80s. This song would fit well on any pop album for adult contemporary. Very nice job!

Constructive Comments: A couple of personal ideas perhaps to experiment with if you’d like: how would it be if the story were told from the first person? Could that make it more personal and give it more punch? How about a short change of melody after 2:29 for variation, a break, for interest? You know your music better than anyone else, and you’re rightfully the final decision maker. Again, a nice job.
