Song: The Mommy Song

Reviewer: Bhaskar_The_Maximalist

Positive Comments: This song had me smiling from start to finish! No matter what the world throws at me, nothing will be cuter than this! This will get gobbled up by some FMCG ad in absolutely no time!

Constructive Comments: One thing I would have done different would be to increase the pace of the song as it goes along. Add some claps, to give it the feel of being played in a classroom or something.

Positive Comments: The violin is a good touch – I wasn’t expecting it!Gentle and smooth tune. Awesome for casual listening. Good main hook. The backing vocals do their job without distracting from the main line.Also, good of you to end with a solo!!!

Constructive Comments: Maybe even add a mouth organ as a counterpoint to the violin?

Song: Crazy Talk

Reviewer: Thierry Coupey

Positive Comments: First, the bass is KILLING me (well EQ’d in all frequencies).Loved the fresh peruvian-style intro… Airy flutes are one of my fav instruments.At 2.25, I really enjoyed the entrance of the guitar drive riffs. Clever !Ending is also very original and again, clever (creative !).So… Kudos, and thanks for this exposure !Thierry

Constructive Comments: I would not comment much here, except that I would have expected a brief passage before the last 3rd minute we less instrumentation, just to bring some kind of relief to the track, especially after the busy part with the electric guitar… I think this would bring a plus to an already great track.Thierry

Song: You Built Another Ghost (full band vocal)

Reviewer: Bhaskar_The_Maximalist

Positive Comments: Good length, good build-up. The guitar supporting the vocals does a perfect job. It sounds like something Joan Baez would have come up with! The high at 3:45 is beautiful.

Constructive Comments: I would give the drums a more prominent role, and add some more variety – it is a bit too simple right now.

Broadjam Artist: jim Finan
Song: The Space Force

Reviewer: Thierry Coupey

Positive Comments: The mood is very captivating, suspense, relief, from stress to intringue, from calm to restless and I applaud your ability for creating clever transitions over all those parts in such a seamless way. To me, and I am talking with experience, the transition subtileness is my main focus because I do have a weakness there : you dont seem to have this issue, it all flows naturally with intelligence and creativity. So, whoever you are, you have all my respect for building such a complex piece. I can imagine movie scenes (chasing scenes ala A. Hitchcock)… so, Bravo !Thierry

Constructive Comments: At times your individual tracks would need a bit of midi editing, to adjust their different controllers (dynamic, expression, etc… not just the velocity). I know it requires a lot of time, but that is the price to pay (time) for simulating such a huge orchestra in the midi world, as close as possible to the real sound of human musicians (whose services we, as small indies, cannot afford renting… nor the recording facilities !).It particularly feels ‘midi raw notes’ on the strings section (much less on perc instruments). Strings are SO SO hard to sound like being human played.

Broadjam Artist: Stanford
Song: Stop Moaning

Reviewer: Bhaskar_The_Maximalist

Positive Comments: I was really confused by the pitches I heard when the song started, but it fell into place as the song grew. Good mix of pop and hip-hop. Lots of Floyd / Parson feel sprinkled around. Unusual choice of instrumentation for the solo.

Constructive Comments: I would like to hear a bit more bite to the drums. The percussion could really tell a story in this song. Also, maybe consider using the guitar a bit differently during the refrain?
