Reviewer: Esther G

Positive Comments: Vocal pitch, recording, originality are all very good in my opinion.I believe it’s not a common style for religious music. So, bravo for doing something else than many others. The structure of the song is very good. Nothing disturbing in there. It is able to immediately set the tone and bring images to mind of some surreal dark place.

Constructive Comments: On the critical side: Personally, I am not enthousiastic about the intro with the organ. It makes everything rather dark and gothic. Which, if that is your intent, I guess you succeeded. But i would suggest to change this into something a little less weighing down or dark sounding. The other question is whether the tone that it sets and the images it creates in one’s mind agree with the lyrics. If I disregard the lyrics, I find myself in some black&white world with a setting of that of the Lord of the Rings or some other fantasy story, with demons and marshes. Not a very safe or happy environment. …. So that contradicts the lyrical message of the song. For this reason I voted that it’s probably not going to have much market potential. I think it would be in better harmony if the lyrics don’t talk about coming out of that darkness but rather about the actual experience OF that darkness at the time. It’s probably tempting to add a good ending to a song so that there is some ‘salvation value’ in there, but many people relate not to the outcome of an experience, but rather the recognition of themselves IN a certain experience.

Positive Comments: This is beautiful, I love it, and it just seems like to me, it is someone walking alone, thinking things over, but I love the instrumentals and every part of this song, It is perfect the eay it is, I wouldn’t change a thing about it. If it has lyrics to it, I’ll bet they are just as beautiful as the instrumental. Very good, hope to hear another one.

Constructive Comments: No work needed on this one, it is all akay as it is.

Positive Comments: I really like the fiddle and how all the other instruments blend into the song. I also really like the lead vocals and I also like the classical guitar solo!

Constructive Comments: Great song, I think that the only thing that I would change is right at the start of the song, instead of singing early on. I would give the instruments about 15 Seconds or so and then start singing, of course this is just my opinion, the song is good just as it is – best wishes!
