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: HarryBudini

Positive Comments: It’s a one guitar show, the guitar is all there is in this blues instrumental, but it’s an impressive guitar playing, so you don’t feel like there’s something missing – it’s very smooth and dynamic, it says what it has to says and then just go away, in 1 minutes 24 seconds, and they’re a pleasant time.

Constructive Comments: Nothing to say. It’s good as it is.

Reviewer: Douglas Branson aka dB+1

Positive Comments: Pop Rockish – with new wave / contemporary / groove rock feel.Refreshingly cool and not the same old thing. Really tasteful musicianship. Love the vocal delivery – restrained and “on.” Fun and likable tune. Seems like very appropriate for film. Love the end…I am finally home…

Constructive Comments: This tune is polished, well written, and produced perfectly for the genre and style. Love the restrained energy and performance. Can’t wait to see who this is, after I post the review. Enjoyed it and going to give a listen again. Also love the concept.

Reviewer: Brenda Craven

Positive Comments: Perfect tempo, and this kept me moving through the whole piece. This is well orchestrated. Kind of reminds me of a mix of disco, R&B and Jazz…Almost retro late 70’s early 80’s, but that’s a good thing. Nice sax solo and your instrumentation choices on this piece work well together. It kept me moving throughout from beginning to ending. Well done. I loved every minute of it.

Constructive Comments: The only critique I have would be to lessen your reverb just a tiny bit on this. At times, some of the instrumentation “bleeds” together a little which can make it difficult to distinguish what each instrument is doing, but it’s not something that is seriously damaging the integrity of the song. You’ve done a beautiful on this. Keep composing…very impressive.

Reviewer: Brenda Craven

Positive Comments: Very beautiful. So much like Pat Metheny. This is so relaxing and calming. What a wonderful guitar lead and your background instrumentation compliments it so beautifully. Wow, this is just amazing. This is exactly the music I listen to through my earbuds when I go to sleep. This is a dynamic composition that needs to be in mainstream jazz. Outstanding job.

Constructive Comments: The only critique I would have would be to bring your drums in a little stronger at 3:00 in. It is so far in the background that it’s difficult to hear it. Bring up the volume on your drums just enough so you can hear them more and so that they don’t overpower the rest of your beautiful instrumentation and this song is on it’s way. Bravo!

Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM

Positive Comments: * Sequenced synth intro starts tune nicely* Lead vocal has unique & memorable quality * Instrumentation/arrangement is full and lush * Drums/rhythm track keeps a good groove tight bass!* Tasty key modulations and instrumental hooks * Great closing piece for a TV/Movie/Documentary

Constructive Comments: + could add a couple guitar parts just for variation+ as song develops idea of conflict/despair, can this be represented with a tempo/rhythm/feel change (1/2 X break)?+ swirling keys are ethereal, put them at key parts so they don’t become blase+ add “ethnic/regional” sounds if available
