Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM
Positive Comments: * unique lead vocals* song has memorable chorus/hook* lyrics have a strong universal message * simple instrumentation & nice chord changes* could be a movie “message” piece
Constructive Comments: + production is clear but mono track stereo sound-field can help each instrument stand out+ doubled vocals loses clarity in lyric at times+ chorus vocal is strong: but a unique instrumental part or lead-line to go along with chorus would help it stand apart from rest of the song

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle
Positive Comments: Very cool sounding rhythm guitar and drums – sounds a little like Buffalo Springfield.
Constructive Comments: Very good beat – I would like to hear a lead guitar and bass guitar added to this piece however, you do have a very unique sound – best wishes!

Reviewer: Patrick E. Muth
Positive Comments: i like the combination of instruments. the voice sounds nice with the tone used. great start and come in. nice job on that.
Constructive Comments: I think a better mix would suit this. you have some good horses here, worth a little more feed. not that it will do well as it is. the voice is close enough to pass, but Melo-dyne used at about 75% would make this smash in my opinion.Am I ever satisfied? No. No. No. It’s what music teacher do, it’s what my two piano teacher Aunts did to me. They refused to give you a perfect score. I hated them for it then, but now I realize that they loved me so much they wanted me to be perfect–for real. Straight Ahead Brother! catnip pat

Positive Comments: great mix, quality lyrics. Positive message and insightful premise to the song. clean vocals and beat was hitting.
Constructive Comments: Overall I liked the track. the only thing to me that needs improvement is the tone in the hook. for the type of message you are conveying a little more feeling (aggressiveness) should have been put into the chorus. that would have changed the tone to get your point across more. but hey maybe you wanted to have the entire song to just flow, but to me go a little harder on the chorus.

Reviewer: Randy Calligan
Positive Comments: This was one of the more interesting pieces I’ve heard for quite a while. It was very strange and really sounded like several different genres all mixed into the same song. However it was fairly easy to imagine it being in certain movies that require that kind of unusual passage. It was kind of cool
Constructive Comments: I would’ve gotten things a little tighter with the click track the drums were a little bit off from the be at times. Although that may have contributed to its unusual sound

Song: Gone Baby Gone (Jazz Pop)
Reviewer: Brenda Craven
Positive Comments: This is a great jazz piece. Loved the vocals, a cross of Billie Holiday and Nancy Wilson. Great instrumentation comma and I love the old Jazz feel. This reminds me of the music my uncle played as a drummer with jazz great Jay McSmhann. Very impressive music and I loved every moment of it. Well done!
Constructive Comments: No criticism to offer.

Song: Double Wide
Reviewer: Rin Vinson
Positive Comments: Wow…Epic piece here. Excellent job all the way around. In a word, I would say muscular. All instrumentation was composed appropriately and everything compliments one another seamlessly. The horns and the percussion section push hard while the strings create an anticipation of something large on its way. I visualize a scene in a tv show or movie where people, animals, cars etc…are running away from something large and menacing. The composition, recording, mix, and master are all 100% professionally done. Thanks for sharing.
Constructive Comments: Nothing negative to say here. The piece should do well. I really enjoy quality compositions and recordings and this delivers on all fronts. Thanks for sharing and good luck with it.

Song: Running Red
Reviewer: Marc S. Pate
Positive Comments: Very cool feel on intro. Really like the harmonies. Tasty guitar.
Constructive Comments: Don’t have much here, it’s very well done. But, that being said maybe a little more edge of the guitar and just a little less of it to add to the tension of the song.

Reviewer: John Hazlett
Positive Comments: An excellent piece that could be used in a chase scene in a movie.
Constructive Comments: Keep all the music score, but to do this piece justice, it needs a live orchestra.
