Reviewer: FRED GROSS

Positive Comments: This could definitely fit into a film score, country video. Recording was fairly good. Guitar work was good. Nice tune for just an acoustic and vocal. Keep up the good work!

Constructive Comments: Nothin gmuch here to add. In certain parts, the vocals seemed to rush a little, timing was off.. But you can get away with that since it was only a guitar and vocals track.

Positive Comments: * Keyboards and vocals stand out* String lines are clear and lush* A “Disney” musical feel* Nice performance and production!

Constructive Comments: + Adding one more musical element in the bridge (ex. bass, cymbal rolls, or other) could help it stand out+ non-diatonic chord change in piano intro threw me off (not really there in verse or chorus is it?)+ key modulation could be effective for last chorus melody line stays constant and can get repetitive+ very nice tempo change for ending+ I like this piece alot, I hope my comments don’t sound negative.

Positive Comments: Mix is general good, I like the placement of the instruments in the mix. Some really good hooks in this song, nice musical ideas. Good song structure the song starts oft, adds good parts and drama and builds to a climatic peak. Nice organ break with background “ohhs” bringing the song back to the top, nice playing, you captured some magic right there!!

Constructive Comments: Overall volume level was a little low and that affects the listening. Strive for better production. Some instruments are sticking out, mainly the snare and crashes. If you could adjust the individual levels of the cymbals etc. the resulting mix you have is well worth the programming time. You could probably do away with the count off at the top and just start with the piano and it would be better, try it, I think you’ll like it. The string sound didn’t vibe with the other instruments, a different sound perhaps, this one was a little ‘space age’ sounding. Although there are a lot of hooks in this song, I didn’t feel the main chorus was as strong and effective as it could of been that’s why the ‘3’. Great heart in your music, I love hearing songs like this…. best of luck with your talent, I hope you get recognized. Just work on your production in the recording process and post. Try to get better, stronger, richer signals from your mic’s and instruments. You recording levels (you want the most or highest amount of signal possible before hitting distortion or clipping to be your record level) is important in having a full and pleasing overall sound. The SOUND IS your presentation of your creation more so than the song itself if you really think about it. For me, I can’t listen to a song if the production is bad, then, a great song doesn’t get heard.

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
