Song: Cookie Cutter Blonde instrumental

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This song is definitely high energy. The composition, recording, mix, and master are all top grade and professional.I hear a heavy late 70’s early 80’s New York influence in the composition. There is a gigantic fan base for this music today and I would think a composition like this would do very well in a TV show, movie, and or ad that might require this type of high energy music for the sound track. Vinyl is a show that comes to mind. The guitar playing is excellent and the tones are not too bright which is usually the pitt-fall that people fall into while trying to pay homage to this genre. Great Job!

Constructive Comments: NO critique here. This is a well done piece of music and great to have in any library. I enjoyed listening to it and I appreciate you sharing it. Pro all the way.

Positive Comments: Wasn’t expecting the beautiful chords at the beginning. They got my attention. Sounded like an intro to a Deadmau5 tune.

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: I like the lead vocals and the sound of the drums and the keyboards as well – sounds a little like the Davy Jones of the Monkees.

Constructive Comments: Not a lot of negatives, I do think this song would sound better with a Saxophone solo instead of the keyboards – best wishes!

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Nice behind the beat vocal phrasing and a classic melody/phrasing here much like “Shake Rattle n’ Roll”.

Constructive Comments: Take the effects off the guitar. Listen to Humber Sumlin or Otis Rush for a classic Chicago vibe–clean and dry with a bit of bite. I’d start with the full rhythm section. The guitar solo isn’t very bluesy–again clean up the tone and go for simple phrasing with statement and repetition leave space in. There are a number of timing issues. This could be a really fun tune–the bones are there. Make it tight, concise, and clean!! All IMO of course.

Positive Comments: i like the combination of instruments. the voice sounds nice with the tone used. great start and come in. nice job on that.

Constructive Comments: I think a better mix would suit this. you have some good horses here, worth a little more feed. not that it will do well as it is. the voice is close enough to pass, but Melo-dyne used at about 75% would make this smash in my opinion.Am I ever satisfied? No. No. No. It’s what music teacher do, it’s what my two piano teacher Aunts did to me. They refused to give you a perfect score. I hated them for it then, but now I realize that they loved me so much they wanted me to be perfect–for real. Straight Ahead Brother! catnip pat

Song: My Little Girl

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: This opens up sounding very much like Ryan Adams’ “New York, New York”. This sounds better with each listen. Really really strong writing in terms of structure, melody, and lyrics. Very nice vocal performance. I really like the chord lift on the pre chorus–it’s a great setup for the chorus/refrain.

Constructive Comments: Listen closely to Ryan Adams’ “New York, New York” for comparison against a masterpiece. First thing drop the effects on the rhythm guitar and go for nice clean, warm sound, and add or substitute and jangly, strumming acoustic guitar part. I think the bass is too plonk plonk plonk in the verses–it sounds like Boston’s “Long Time”, which was 40 years ago. Having it groove and gently move would add a lot. I’d take most of the slapback off the lead vocal, and put some tube drive and just the tiniest bit of distortion in to give it some grit. There’s a bit too much low mid in the vocal–it accentuates the somewhat nasal tone you have. I really don’t like the solo guitar at all. It’s trying to hard, and putting too much Dickie Betts intensity. And the sound is harsh. Simpler, major pentatonic with a smooth tone would be better.All IMO and all intended to help with the tune. This is really solid writing, playing, and singing!
