Zimbabwe by Nigel Barrett

Broadjam Artist: Nigel Barrett
Song: Zimbabwe

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

Positive Comments: I am not an expert in this genre, but I thought this was a well crafted rock song.

Constructive Comments: The singer was very good, but I thought that the potency of this track might have sounded slightly better with a singer who had a deeper rougher voice.
