Constructive Comments: Great stuff. I enjoyed it all and the production was truly on spot.Take good care,Billy

Song: SAY SOMETHING NICE ABOUT SOMEONE

Reviewer: Billy Pilgrim

Positive Comments: What a great message for the youngsters. Heck, a great message for us all. And since we’re asked to say something nice: this song is flat-out fun, hooky, and has you singing along on the second chorus. And what?… a key change at the end to pump it up real nice. The kids have gotta love this thing. The kid in me sure does.

Constructive Comments: Love it, love it.You take good care, Billy

Positive Comments: * beautiful lead and backing vocals* lyric has a strong universal message* 12/8 feel flows & builds throughout* Be lifted up with this song!

Constructive Comments: + no intro (even 2 bars can set mood/feel etc)+ drums come in nicely on chorus but the sound quality changes (like a lower quality mp3 track) + nice guitar fills throughout+ fades out too fast

Just Another Day by Marc S. Pate

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Fantastic acoustic guitar tone in the intro. I know I really like this tune but there are major issues going on noted below. I hope I get a chance to review this after corrected.

Constructive Comments: There are MAJOR clashes going on with the guitar and keys once the verses come in. Some of it’s electronic/tone and some of it’s note clash. You gotta fix this asap. The hammer on riffs that come in before the verses are clashing all by themselves, like there’s a buzz in the tubes.

Song: A Whiskey In The Morning / Rock

Reviewer: Antho

Positive Comments: Very cool sounding guitar idea – ripe for a lyricist/singer to run with. The melodies lend themselves to a great song in the making

Constructive Comments: I’d like to hear the part up until 0:32 played on a nylon string acoustic, and the rest of the song on a guitar with a little bit of midrange drive, like through a Vox.
