Song: A Life In Question / Soundtrack

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: Even though there aren’t any lyrics or vocals on this song, it has a clear, pronounced hook. A great one at that. For some reason I visualize a scene in a movie, tv show, and or ad that would be a night time time frame. Possibly raining. The groove the drums and bass are laying down is simple and fat (in a great way). The guiro is a nice touch.The guitar playing and tone are excellent. Once again…very simple but completely effective. The recording, composition, mix, and master are all high grade and professional. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: Nothing negative to say. I listened three times and I can’t find anything I would change. I would keep my eyes open for a placement that has to do with night time. I enjoyed the track very much and I think it should do well for you.

Reviewer: Nigel Barrett

Positive Comments: Lots of energy but lacking real punch. Love the synth programming. Great pulsating pad chords at various points which I am jealous of!

Constructive Comments: The drums need to have a greater presence for my money. Can’t decipher whether the bass is real or keys. Would love also to hear a major change in there somewhere be it a key change of major change of instrumentation to keep me glued.

Double Wide by Billy Pilgrim

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.

Cookie Cutter Blonde instrumental by Warren Hein

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This song is definitely high energy. The composition, recording, mix, and master are all top grade and professional.I hear a heavy late 70’s early 80’s New York influence in the composition. There is a gigantic fan base for this music today and I would think a composition like this would do very well in a TV show, movie, and or ad that might require this type of high energy music for the sound track. Vinyl is a show that comes to mind. The guitar playing is excellent and the tones are not too bright which is usually the pitt-fall that people fall into while trying to pay homage to this genre. Great Job!

Constructive Comments: NO critique here. This is a well done piece of music and great to have in any library. I enjoyed listening to it and I appreciate you sharing it. Pro all the way.

Only the rocks live forever by Randal Dunkle

Song: Only the rocks live forever

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Sweet Jane tuned into Sweet Jesus! Nice vibe and really strong lyrics on this one Randall. The “Only the rocks forever” refrain gives it a nice lift, and that’s a very strong hook.

Constructive Comments: Make the lead guitar tone sweet and smooth–it’s really harsh at the moment. The bass is distorted and I think it’s too busy–if you settle in and play with the drums/beat more than the guitar I think you’ll be amazed at the space and groove that creates. I will produce this for you if you like Randall–I’d love to show you how much things can come around with simple changes.
