Wasted Days by Richard Walker

Broadjam Artist: Richard Walker
Song: Wasted Days

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: It just hit me–this sounds like a lost Traffic tune!! The vocals remind me of Nick Drake too. That groove is a classic Traffic beat, and of course you’ve got both killer piano work and organ in there. Love the vocal timbre, vocal phrasing & melody, Wurlitzer electric, acoustic piano, organ and slinky drum beat, all of which are really well engineered too. Excellent lyrics. I really dig this –nice work!

Constructive Comments: I’d drop the acoustic alone part of the intro–the acoustic guitar sound is a bit “piezo”, and I don’t like the lead guitar lines that you pickup with because it’s got a happy, jam band sound that doesn’t fit with the mood that dominates most of the tune. I’d really like to hear you rework it starting right out with the keys. And get away from bang-dang-a-lang quitar strum rhythm that’s more Greatful Dead. I think the bass could drive the beat a bit more working close with the drums instead of following along after the beat. This would a tremendous amount of energy I bet. Nice work!

Praising The Lord by Randal Dunkle

Randal Dunkle

Broadjam Artist: Randal Dunkle
Song: Praising The Lord

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Nice harmonic work!! Of course this is Randal singing in faith. Interesting story lyrics that bring a lot of gospel events, which makes it more complex and interesting than a lot of Christian Rock.

Constructive Comments: The vocals are too dry &close and much louder than the rest of the tracks, so it gives a bit of a voiceover effect. If you push the vocals back in level, record a bit farther from the mic, and add some reverb it will let the vocal sit in the mix better.

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Way slinky minor Blues feel here with some Jazz elements. Love the drums and atmospheric keys. There’s some really hot and interesting lead work that’s kinda Gary Moore school.

Constructive Comments: I’d take the flange of the guitar–to my ears it’s too harsh and effect driven. But keep that overdrive in. A cleaner tone would really let this sing. Check out some Robben Ford for a reference to exactly what I’m gettin at!

Song: Save The World

Reviewer: Jimmy Joe Lee

Positive Comments: I was pleasantly surprised with much of this recording as you can tell by Excellent and near Excellent marks. Im far more eager to explain my criticism as that’s what stands in the way of my judging this a knockout. The overall sound is strong and very listenable. Even though the track is extremely repetitive, it wears well. It’s mesmerizing. Thats meant as a positive.

Constructive Comments: The problem for me with this recording can be corrected easily. I had to work to understand the lyric. Even then I missed 90% of it. The snippets that I got suggest to me the subject matter and probably the lyric is very good. I, however, can’t be sure. Does the singer have a good voice? I don’t care if the emotion is communicated. I, again must say don’t know. And like other aspects, the bits I could get, sounds like the singer can and maybe did, deliver a performance worthy of the song. I would love to get my engineer on this. I think it could be a real gem.
