Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This tune builds so well! Electric piano intro grabbed me right away. The HH and congas with a ton of verb got the groove chugging, and then some nice bass playing gave some support. Extremely cool, moody piece of music here. Originality scores are high on this piece. Visually I could see this piece doing well in many areas. The recording is organic and sounds nice and real. The mix is perfect and the master sounds like a professional job. I really enjoyed the song. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: The only and I mean ONLY thing I would say about this song to critique it is that the strings at the end might not need to be there. Other than that, I loved it and I would like to hear more. Very enjoyable. The groove is happening.

Positive Comments: Great guitar tone. Tasty and sparse, I like that.

Constructive Comments: It’s very well done, don’t have much. But, just thinking maybe a cold stop, or two, would add a nice contrast.

The Usual Victim by HarryBudini

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Groovy psychedelic vibe that reminds me of Lennon, Bowie, and more currently, Of Montreal. Of course it’s Harry. I think you’re using your voice perfectly in this one. Cool sitar touches and swirling feel. I really like at 2:20 where you starting hitting one One with sitar splash–this gives it a Funk that really works.

Constructive Comments: That bridge comes in really late–it should be a good bit sooner. The bass & drums are kind of fluttery and don’t really settle into a smooth rhythm, which detracts from the song. I think they’d be so much better if more simple and grooving on the beat. The words are a bit hard to understand at times.

Waiting by Richard Walker

Richard Walker

Broadjam Artist: Richard Walker
Song: Waiting

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Really nice baritone vocals that remind me of Ron Sexsmith, as does the song. Maybe Rufus Wainwright a bit too. Good production, playing, and arrangement. You’ve borrowed The Beatles’ “Listen” in the progression which will make it familiar but not so close that it’s a copy.

Constructive Comments: The bass is overpowering with a loud low end. It needs to be backed down and thinned out a bit.

Everybody Needs Somebody by FRED GROSS

Reviewer: Marc S. Pate

Positive Comments: Very nice! That’s a nice tune, nice playing, great harmonies.

Constructive Comments: The mix needs a little adjustment. Bring the vocals out a little more, smooth out the drums and rhythm section a bit. But, you have a nice little tune here, it’s definitely a keeper!
