Song: Sailing the Caribbean

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: Very nice sound – I especially like the piano runs, really has a very staccato sound, I also like the sax – very cool!

Constructive Comments: Not a lot of negatives – very professional sounding tune, I think the saxophone may take over this a piece a little too much even though it sounds fantastic! Instead of a flat top guitar – I would like to hear a little more of an edge with a lead electric guitar – best wishes and may God bless!

Song: Something Inside Of Me

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Great intro that calls both Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’ and Allmans’ Melissa to mind–then you bring vocals in right on cue. Clean and powerful vocals that are given lots of space and hold up to the challenge! Incredibly pleasing vocal timbre and a very convincing emotional performance. This kinda song could help a lot of guys get married if it were playing in the truck. This is one of the best voices out there. Great bridge that really lifts.

Constructive Comments: beautiful eye–heyes I’d recommend not making two syllables out of ‘eyes’ I think it’s awkward and weak. Great as is but I’d love to hear what it’d sound like with a chord walk up on “then I saw you” I think that would kill. “It’s just something…inside of me” is good but not great, when you really want great at that moment.I’m not a hitmaker in Nashville but I’d really like to work on the lyrics/phrasing and chord structure with you to see if I could make this better.It’s freakin’ awesome regardless. Nice work!

Positive Comments: Nice recording. Clean intro draws in the listener. Kind of Latin feel, could apply a Bossa Nova(ish) on this one. Nice Chorus. Very beautiful chord progression, good groove and I like the arrangement I loved the Coda where you grooved on the reprise to the fade… You don’t hear music written like that much anymore so the more I hear it the more happy I am. So many good things about this track, love the live feel and respect for the song writer!! Al the elements are there and shinning… super nice bridge and guitar break leading back to the hook. There are too many great hooks in this song to count!

Constructive Comments: Would have liked a more prominent drum track. The drum machine parts are buried leaving me feeling something is missing sonically. My man Chet, you and I need to do a collaboration…… If you have something laying around that needs drums, it’s on me. 🙂

Constructive Comments: Instrumentals are tough. They very easily end up sounding like a jam without a very distinct hook or theme. But, you sound very good.

A Life In Question / Soundtrack by Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods

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: Marc S. Pate

Positive Comments: Very tasty guitar tone and sound, nicely done.

Constructive Comments: It’s very good, and you are certainly a player but, as an instrumental, it needs a hook or something to come back to, otherwise it sounds kind of like a long jam.
